It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas….

Hi there! Hope your preparations for Christmas are coming along smoothly! I as always, am a Last Minute Lilly! LOL! But no worries, I trust that everything will come together nicely!

I made this card today based on The Greeting Farm's Fresh Friday Challenge-- use nontraditional colors on a Christmas card. I also based it on this week's card sketch at Studio Calico!  Also entering this card into Simon Says stamp Wednesday Challenge- winter inspiration and their Monday challenge- anything goes.

AND….I'm so proud that I actually used my December SC card kit to make the card! Woot Woot for using supplies! This cute little Anya was dropped off at the post office this afternoon so she is well on her way to my friend who lives north of me! Woot! Well, thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have an awesome weekend and get all your last minute or loose ends tied up before the big day! YAY!

Well, Hello There, Gorgeous!

Seems like forever since I've blogged, but I'm planning to get back into it to this month and catch up with reading my favorite blogs and also playing along with fun challenges! Well, today is exciting because I want to share that I am designing for Pink Bow Ties stamp company and a new stamp set called Soulful Sunday has just been released! Woot!!! This stamp set is so awesome and versatile--go check it out HERE! Also, if you would like to see more of my DT projects with Soulful Sunday please check out my YouTube video HERE! Ok so like I said I want to get back into the swing of things- using my supplies by playing along with different challenges! This week I decided to play along with    The Greeting Farm's  Farm Fresh Friday Challenge- Anything Goes.

Here's the card I made using Pink Bow Ties- Soulful Sunday stamp set and also The Greeting Farm- Angel Anya!

Cards, cards, cards….

Hello! Cheers to a new fresh week of craftiness and hopefully a lot of productivity thrown in there, too! This month I wanted to make sure that I really used my scrappy stash, so like a crazy woman I have signed up for 5 different swaps!!! Somehow my plan has semi worked---I've been using my stash, yet still shopping! It's a never ending cycle- what can I say? I'm a scrappy addict! BUT----on  a positive note I received two new stamp sets last week and I have used both of them right away! For me that is unheard of because I like to hoard my new goodies for a while before using them, but in the sprit of trying to only buy things I'll really use- I went a head and inked up my new The Greeting Farm- "Twisted" kit and my new Pink Bow Ties "Social Media" set! I made this card for one of my swaps:

Entering in the Following Challenges:
Seize the Sketch (card based off this week's sketch)
The Greeting Farm- FFF (stripes or plaid)-- (acetate tag and little banner both have stripes)
Simon Says Stamp- Let's Be Clear- (acetate tag and clear Wink of Stella used on stamped images bow, bracelets and boots)
Cute Card Thursday-Pretty Papers Yep, Heidi Swapp papers are pretty darn cute!
Just Add Ink- color challenge (teal, pink, and brown)

Well, hope you have a rockin' week! I'll be back with more cards soon! :)

Well wishes...

Hello there! Just stopping by with a card I made for a friend's brother who's ill. For the past few weeks I've been making tons of girly projects with flowers and glitter, so it was challenging yet fun to leave all my girlie stuff to the side and make a masculine card! I started off with this weeks sketch from Mojo Monday

and kind of went from there….

Patterend Paper: Heidi Swap
Stamps: The Greeting Farm- Nurse Anya; 
Docerela Creations- Birthday Wishes ***love the versatility of these stamps- love the original sentiment "sending birthday wishes from across the miles", but since this is a get well card I just printed out "healing prayers" and instantly transformed it into a get well card!
Embellishments: from my stash

Also Entering:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hopefully this will be my summer of "crafts" and that I will craft like crazy to get my stash under control. Well, who am I kidding? I don't think my stash will ever be under control, but at least I can feel good about actually using my stuff instead of just hoarding! :) 
Happy Scrapping, Friends!

A new love----My Besties

Hello and happy beautiful Saturday and Mother's Day weekend!!!

Just wanted to come by and share a new find that I absolutely LOVE! Sherri Baldy's stamps called My Besties! They are absolutely adorable and it is my personal mission to collect all the ones with glasses! LOL! Well, I received my first couple of Besties in the mail this week and couldn't wait to play! This one is called  Clever Chloe Sweet Geek and she's stinkin' cute!!!  I don't know what's going on with the coloring of her hair, but it doesn't look that CrAzy in person…maybe it's the filter! Oh, well…still learning Copics but having a great time playing around! Made a little chunky bookmark to play along with the current 'anything but a card' challenge at Besties Challenge! Also entering Paper Issues current issue challenge- Mums the Word. Used spring colors and flowers for the mum the words challenge! I used Pink Paislee's line Hello Sunshine papers, stickers, and embellies that I received from Paper Issues a couple of weeks ago! Love this line! So proud of myself for digging in to new goodies instead of hoarding them! Yay! Hopefully, I'll keep creating throughout the weekend!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Happy Tuesday!

Hope everyone had a happy MLK Day! I sure did! I had a relaxing day of grabbing some of the new Heidi Swapp loveliness and creating a card right away! I started my card based on the current sketch challenge at Yumi and Fumi Handmade! Love the sketch and it also gave me a chance to open up a new heart circle die set I picked up on clearance, too! Woot! Here's the sketch:
Of course, if you've visited me before, you know I love The Greeting Farm stamps, so of course I had to play along with this week's FFF Challenge- Love is in the Air! And since I was in a playing mood, I also stopped by Mema's Crafts for her January Bingo Challenge.

 I chose to go diagonal with:
Rubber stamp- TGF Dee Dee stamp
Punches or Dies- Spellbinders Heart Circles Die
FREE space
Bling or Pearls- Doodlebug Bling

Oh, and also I'm entering the Paper Issues-Just My Type Challenge since this a Valentine  card!

So, after all that inspiration….Here's the card I made:

Well, thank you so much for stopping by today! Hope you have a fantastic week!

Cards, cards, and more cards!!!!

Hey there! I found another fun sketch to help complete my swap cards. This time it's from Mojo Monday:

I made two cards inspired by this sketch! Of course, I had to add banners! LOL! I love banners! And the card on the right is also for this weeks challenge at Anyone for Anya- use corrugated cardboard! Love the look of it and plus it's FREE- yep just cut a piece of cardboard from a shipping box and peeled back the layers! WOOT!!! Well, that's all for now! Happy Friday!!!

Happy ScrappyWeekend II

Hello Lovelies,

Just stopping by with another card for the swap that I'm participating in! This time I stopped by Artful Delight to be inspired by their card sketch challenge! I love the sketch because I interpreted the diagonal as a pocket…and I do love my pockets and tags!  So here's the sketch:

And here's my interpretation of the sketch:

Well, I really like this sketch, so I will definitely be placing it in my go- to- files! I have 5 more cards to make, so I'm sure I'll be back later to share! Actually, I may even make more because I'm having a great time and it's been a while since I've spent so much time crafting- feels good!
 Have a beautiful Sunday!

Happy Scrappy Weekend!!!

I'm participating in a swap with some online friends and, and The Greeting Farm's Friday Challenge was the perfect jump start to begin my cards!  The challenge is to use bling so I used some cute little rhinestones to accentuate the sky!

Alright, I've got to crank out some more cards! Have a happy, scrappy weekend!!!
