Happy Birthday To You


Today I'm finally packing up my craft room! Yeah!

We are hoping to be moved this weekend but won't have any internet until next Wednesday :(

Tomorrow is Brian's birthday!
I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch below to create his birthday card.
Since I'm packing up I decided to reach to my scrap pile for card stock colours. I really love this Hawaiian Shores colour from Papertrey. The card is for my husband so I decided to add a little red heart for a pop!
Thanks for stopping by!

I seriously need to start packing up this room rather than stamping.
It's just that I haven't had as much time lately so I'm taking advantage of it while I can.
Who wouldn't right?

Sunday I cased Sue's card HERE as she was the Featured Stamper.
I LOVE rainbows and was really inspired by hers.

This is what I created.

Today is my day off!
LOL two days of work so far this week.

Here I created a CAS card using the Freshly Made Sketch below.
This was the first of my five cards on Sunday.
It's hard to tell in the photo but I stamped Darling Dots in White Craft ink onto the mint card stock. In real life it's easy to see.
In hindsight I should have maybe embossed with white ep :(

Day two of back to work.

Counting down until summer vacation time :)

Here's a card I created using Karen's sketch below.
I just love her simple layouts!

I finally used these cool Gratitude dies from MFT!

Behind the clouds, the sun is shining


Today I'm back with another card created on Sunday.
I'm going to try and have a card posted each day this week ;)

While starting to pack up my room I found some older MFT goodies.

Happy Birthday to a Wonderful Friend

Well HELLO :)

Sorry for being away and not being a very good blogger.
We just got back from a week long vacation in Vegas....ahhhhh wish I was still there!
Things are going to be a little sporadic for the next few weeks as I'll be packing up to move....a few
Looking forward to our new place and a little more space! This spare room is really tiny or maybe it's because I have so much stuff ;) 

Today while watching the Daytona 500 I created FIVE cards!
I feel sooooooo good!

This first one was created using Jen's Deconstructed Sketch.

I can remember when I bought pack.
Now I rarely reach for pattern papers.
With embossing folders, mixed media and dies there doesn't seem to be as much need for them.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Thanks for Being You


Thanks for stopping by today!

I finally have a weekend off and I'm THRILLED! Here's hoping I can find a little time to sneak into my craft room at some point and get inky ;)

On Thursday morning I played along with the SCS Ways To Use It Challenge - Ovals and I combined it with the Freshly Made Sketch from this week.

I used a super fun MFT image and some bright colours! Makes me happy!

Just Because


Last week I was super busy doing I honestly don't know what but I do know I didn't have time to get in my stamp room.

Hoping to make up for that today!

I managed to make one really quick CAS card for the Freshly Made Sketch #169 below.

Here I used some fun floral Verve Stamps!
Great Friend and Bloom & Grow.
Two of my fave stamp sets. 
Bring on spring!

Thanks for stopping by!
