Haappy Canada Day to my Canadian family and friends!!  That means this year is half gone! With all that's happened, most of us would like this year to go quickly! 

It is time for Sparkles Christmas Challenge #114!  This month, we've got a recipe for you!   To play along, use this recipe...

1 image
2 background papers
3 of gems, pearls, or sequins
(I had to use adhesive dots for this because 
my pearls are still in a box somewhere!) 

Here's my card...


My 2 papers are First Edition "Christmas Story."  My image and sentiment are Sunny Studio Christmas Chapel stamp and die.  I also used Spellbinders Petite Ovals and A2 Matting Basics.  


Thanks for stopping by and please come play along this month at Sparkles Christmas Challenge!

May your day be brighter... - TMS #561

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I've been sending a lot more snail mail recently, so I'm trying to make my cards with a purpose in mind rather than just a generic "I probably would send this to someone some day."   This is a card with purpose...


My DP is MME Portobello Road 6x6.  (I have this in 12x12, too, but I love it in smaller design.)  My sentiment is from my stack of printed-and-ready so I can't remember sepcifics, sorry.  My flower is Technique Tuesday Cosmos Flower.  Adhesive dots finished it off.  


Here's our fun sketch for the week...

Floral birthday - TMS #559

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I've got a birthday card to share this week...


My DP is MME My Heritage.  I used MFT Die-Namics Stitched Ric Rac die for the tied element.  I fussy cut a flower from the paper rather than the bow.  My sentiment is TH cut with a fishtail from Spellbinders Lacey Pennants, and adhesive dots finished it off.  

Here's our sketch...

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Father's Day is coming soon, so here''s a fun card...



My paper is a scrap that was already embossed with this Chevron EF.  My image was printed a long time ago so I don't remember where it's from.  The "flourish" is Technique Tuesday's Decorative Dividers.

We jingle all the way - SCC #113


It's the first of the month, so it's time for Sparkles Christmas Challenge #113!  This month's challenge theme is "Christmas Bells."  

Here is my card "with bells on." :)


My paper is Recollections "Winter Frost."  My sentiment and little jingle bells are from Sum More Fun's Tangled Tinsel.  I stamped the bells and "colored" them with Silver Liquid Pearls.  The main panel and sentiment panel were cut with Kat Scrappiness Wonky Stitched Rectangles.  I had a piece of  silver paper that was already embossed with CB D'vine Swirl in my scrap box, so I used it for the extra circles. All the circles were cut with Die-Versions Stitched circles. 

In case you can't read the sentiment, it says...

in this
house we
laugh
play & we
jingle all
the way


The shimmer on this card is very cool IRL!  Here's a closeup from a different angle...



Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!  Please come and play along at Sparkles Christmas Challenge!!

Floral thank you

Happy Friday to you!!  I needed to make some design team cards, but then I just wanted to make one for fun!  I looked at Paper Playful and found a few challenges to inspire me. :)   Here's what I came up with...


I had stamped a few of these flowers and leaves earlier this week and wanted to use one.  This is Sunny Studio Hawaiian Hibiscus stamps and dies stamped with Hampton Arts coordinating inks.  My paper is Simple Vintage Botanicals from Simple Stories.  The "Thank You" stamp was a freebie I got in an order long, long ago.


Challenges...
Aud Sentiments #152 - flowers + a sentiment
As You Like It - favourite embellishment and why (My favorite way to embellish is with thin dies.  I love the something "extra" that a fancy die bring or even the dimension a simple outline die like the one I used here adds.)
Simply Create Too #160 - use flowers
Just Add Ink #507 - sketch

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed weekend!!

Hello - TMS #556

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  This week, I've got another simple greeting card.  



I found the box with my embossing folders, so I have texture rather than patterned paper.  This is Darice Crinkle.  The sentiment (Die-versions Curly Word Hello) was already cut in another box.  The baker's twine and adhesive dots are from my stash.  I had a gift card, so I just got the flower... Sunny Stamps Hawaiian Hibiscus stamp and die set stamped using Hampton Arts shades of pink.  I LOVE IT!!  I love hibiscus and have been wanting a stamp like this for awhile, and I really like this one because it was not too hard to get right.  I have a couple of other layering stamps that are almost impossible to layer correctly. :/

I'm not sure how the card looks on your device because while it looks great on my iPhone, it looks dull on my laptop.  I can assure you it is soooo pretty IRL!!! 

Side note... several years ago, I had a hibiscus plant that was absolutely gorgeous!  My cats didn't even try to eat it like they had all other plants.  I enjoyed it until one day, one of them  knocked it over and it broke.  I mean it broke!  Completely sheered off at the root!  Grrrrr!   So now I just create my own. :)   

Here'e our sketch... can't wait to see how you all interpret this one!!

Hi friend - TMS #555

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  

I'm trying to send more cards out for a couple of reasons... we moved recently, but also I know that at this time of staying in, it's so nice to get personal mail!  Basic note cards is probably my favorite type of card to make.  


My paper is Bo Bunny Early Bird Collection.  The banner is cut from various scrap papers using Die-Namics Banner Strip Die.  My flower is Sizzix Small Tattered Florals.  My sentiment is Raisin Boat.  Since I missed the dot elements (see sketch below), I'm just going to say it was intentional and that my flowers are the dots. LOL :) 


Here's our sketch for the week...
