Birthday Girl



Hi there, happy Saturday! Well, here is my last card of the year. This is for the challenge at the MFT Forum, the winner gets to be guest designer next month with awesome new goodies! The challenge is paper piecing, so I pieced her little dress and balloon. I am using some gorgeous Graphic 45 paper and this darling Pure Innocence image, I love these stamps, they always make me smile. I also used a couple of MFT dies, the bracket die for the sentiment and the fun fence die, it even has woodgrain embossing, how cool! I added a few Wild Orchid flowers and some stitching. Well that's it for me today, thank you so much again for your visits, hope you have a wonderful 2012. :)

Flourishes Night & Day Challenge



Hi there! It's release time at Flourishes again, time for a couple of fun challenges. My card is for the first challenge, Night & Day, show a time of day on your card.

For my card, I used one of my favorites again, Sweet Days of Summer. I sponged the background to give the look that the kiddies are playing in the water late until almost dusk. You can check out all of the details of the challenge here.

Ok, I'm off to tackle the next challenge, using the colors of pears, to match the new gorgeous Pears stamp set. See ya in a little bit.

My baby girl's birthday


Hi, I'm back with my second post. This card is for my daughter's birthday today. She is too old for little cutesie cards now, so I went with this gorgeous birthday cake from Flourishes Let Them Eat Cake set, give her something more grown up. The cake and stand were heat embossed with clear powder and I added a little bling in the bottom corner. A sweet heart border punch and my background paper is from Authentique, I've been hoarding it and finally broke it out, lol. I am entering my card the Feminine Flair Challenge at Flourishes this week. Ok, that's it for me today, thank you so much for stopping by, have a great week! :)

Kindred Spirits



Hello, hope you had a nice weekend. I've got a card for this week's Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes. This week was a sketch:I used the Sweet Days of Summer set, I think this may be my favorite set from Flourishes, I just love the sweet silhouette images. I stamped a wallpaper background stamp in yellow, then stamped the image and sentiment over that. Some gorgeous My Minds Eye paper and a little vintage lace to finish it off. I'll be back in a little while with another card using a Flourishes set, today is my daughter's birthday and I'm going to work on her card while she is out.

simply delightful



Hi! Hope your weekend is going well. I am playing along with a brand new challenge, Runway Inspired, where they use fashion to find inspiration. I love inspiration challenges! Here is the first inspiration photo:
I kept the CAS look with my card and gold embossed this fabulous medallion stamp to mimic the Versace logo and added a couple of soft yellow butterflies. All of my stamps are from The Craft's Meow. Pretty quick and easy. That's it for me today, thanks so much for stopping by. :)

Merry Christmas


Hi there! I'm back with my second card today. For this one, I am playing along with this week's My Favorite Things sketch challenge, LOVE this sketch and will definitely use it again.


I used Clearly Sentimental About Christmas from MFT, it has so many beautiful holiday sentiments, love it! My paper is from Making Memories, I found a couple of packs after Christmas last year for a buck each, yay! Ok, I'm off, got some household chores to take care of, have a great day :)

peace. love. joy.


Happy happy Sunday! Hope your weekend is going well. Today I am playing along with Market Street Stamps Block Party. Just make a project with Market Street Stamps and link up, easy peasy! Also, they have a new release with beautiful holiday images, check it out.

For my card I decided to go clean and simple, I used Joyful Snowman and popped him up on some icy blue dp that looks like swirling wind ;) I added the sentiment and some zigzag stitching, pretty quick for mass producing some cards. Thanks for popping by, I'll be back in a bit with one more card. :)

Warm Winter Wishes


Hi! I'm back with my second post today. Pumpkin Spice is having a DT call, so of course I am trying out for it! Pumpkin Spice is where I now get my papers, all products are at least 30% off, with no coupon required, plus they have super fast shipping. How awesome would that be to be on the DT of a company that you know and love? They are asking for anything, any color, anything that makes you smile. Well, I just adore snowmen, and this one from MFT definitely makes me smile. Isn't he just the sweetest? He is colored with Prismacolor pencils and his scarf is paper pieced. My papers are from Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly line, I love this collection, I love anything Cosmo Cricket! ;) I added some die cut snowflakes and icicles, how fun! The size of the finished card is 5x5. You can check out all of the details for the call here. Thanks so much for stopping by to see me, crossing my fingers, wish me luck! :)

Also, I am going to enter my card into the Winter-Holiday challenge at Little Scrap Pieces. :)

Happy thoughts are coming your way


Hi, happy Saturday! I have a sweet little tag to share today, it's for December's Guest Designer Contest in the My Favorite Things forums over at SCS. The theme is Play Tag, I had so much fun making my tag! I started with a hand cut tag and embossed it with my swirl folder, kinda looks like wind, huh? ;) I used this darling Pure Innocence image, Aim High, eek! Isn't she just the sweetest! I paper pieced her dress and kite, and colored her hair and body with Prismacolor pencils. I also used some of MFT's Die'namics: the Flat-Bottom Cloud, Fresh Cut Grass, and the Bracket Tab for the sentiment. A little pink twine for kite string, and that's it. Thank you so much for popping by for a peek, have a great weekend! :)
