Hi, friends!

Just popping in quick to share with you a card that I made for my sister's birthday.  She loves anything with the beach theme, especially flamingos.  All stamps and dies are from Sunny Studio.  She has three dogs, Ginger, Morgan, and Cami.  So, I thought it would be fun to incorporate them on the card.  They are riding in the VW bus to head to the beach!  My brother actually had a VW bus when he went to college.  Not one that was this colorful, but just the same it brought some good times.  I had lots of fun making this card for my sister!

Not much is happening around here for now.  It's a quiet week, which is great for we will be camping a few days next week and then shortly after that head out for vacation.

I'm still getting used to my new craft room.  It's great to have a place for everything, but I have forgotten where I have stored things, lol!  I still can't find a stamp set that I just used last month.  Oh well, I'm sure it'll turn up some time.  Yesterday, I forgot where I put my embossing powders and I was talking out loud and my hubby said..."Do you need something?"  I told him that I'm just voicing my frustration and hopefully it'll help.  I found the powders shortly after that, lol!

Well, that's all for now my friends!  I hope all is well in your crafty world!  Take care and have a great rest of the week!

Hi, there!

How are you on this wonderful Tuesday?  I hope all is well in your world!  I thought I'd pop in quick and share a baby card that I made for a friend's daughter.  I used some old with some new.  The images are new from Pretty Pink Posh and the scallop dies are from Paper Sweeties.  I just love these cute baby dies!  I can see myself using them quite often!

The card is self-explanatory.  It was very easy to make and came together quickly, which doesn't always happen, right?!  The plaid design paper is from Lawn Lawn.  To balance the card, I have two little ducks.  Now I'm thinking, oh my, does it look like mama duck at twins, lol!  Always something, right?!  I tend to overthink things at times.  Inside the card, I have one little duck with a heart. And the sentiment, bundle of joy.

Ok, enough overthinking for now.  Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by today!  Take care, hugs!

Take Care!

Hi, Friends!

I hope all is well for you on this beautiful Thursday!  My hubby is out mowing the lawn and I'm enjoying some time in my craft room.  I made this card a little while ago and have finally posted it.  This card will go to my niece who needs to be cheered up for she had foot surgery yesterday.  Her fiance bought a kayak recently and when she went to step out of it her foot got twisted.  But, she is on the mend now and he is taking good care of her.

For the card, I started with a green base and paired it with the postage die from Waffle Flower.  The stencil flowers and word sentiments are from Waffle Flower, also.  I just love all the products they have come out with to go along with the postage die.  I'm trying to hold myself back to purchase the recently released summer one!

I'm entering this card over at the The Flower Challenge.

Ok, that's all for now.  I hope you have a great rest of the week!  Take care, hugs!

Happy Birthday!

Hi, Friends!

I'd like to share with you two cards I made using Karin Brushmarkers!  I've had these new markers, which seems forever and I finally used them.  I watched a tutorial from Mindy Eggen before water coloring the lovely flowers from Simon Says.  The embossed background and flower dies are from the same set, Bountiful Blooms.  It makes it so convenient to have the embossing folder and cutting die in the same set!  I used a punch for the leaves under the sentiment and added dots to finish the card.

Next up, is the same type of card using the same set, but I water colored the background and sprayed white and perfect pearls ink sprays to the flowers and background.  Vellum leaves and yellow gems to finish the card.

I'm entering this card over at the Flower Challenge.

That's all for now.  Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by today!  Wishing you all a Happy Mother's Day!  Take care!

Happy Birthday!

Hi, Friends!

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!  I finished a birthday card for my niece with some new goodies from Pretty Pink Posh.  I just love the stitched butterflies!  I got out my neglected ink sprays for the background.  I added a foil panel, also.  Distress inks were used for the butterflies.  For the stems and wings behind the inked butterfly, I used sparkly aqua paper.  Sequins and sentiment to finish the birthday card.

I'm entering this card over at NBUS.

Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by today!  I'm heading over to your blogs to see your lovely creations, take care!
