It's Paper Sweeties 4th Birthday!

Hi! It's Paper Sweeties 4th Birthday and how sweet of my friend Debbie to ask me to be a part of the celebration!  I do miss hanging out with all the Paper Sweeties and being on a design team, but this lets me be a part of the team for a very happy occasion! Here's my card for the blog hop...

I paper-pieced my umbrella with a sweet rosy paper and added sentiments from three different Paper Sweeties stamp sets...Showering You with Love, You're Invited and Hello Friend. I can use this sentiment for so many occasions...two of which I will need very soon!

I layered up some coordinating papers, a little LOVE die cut and tied it on with one of my favorite black gingham check ribbons. The black card base makes it pop too. There's a few 'raindrops' courtesy of Paper Sweeties Cupcake Sprinkles!

You're next stop on the hop is Tracey Kelly. If you get stopped there, head on over to the Paper Sweeties Blog to see what the rest of the designers have in store for the big birthday celebration!  Have a great day!

Missing You is Real Ruff!

Hi there! I know, I know, it's been three months since my last post! I can hardly believe it myself. That doesn't mean that I wasn't being crafty though. I've been busy working a lot and to be honest, my craft room was not something I wanted to face. It was such a mess that I could barely get in there!  But, I won't make any more excuses and I'll get to this cute card I wanted to share today! It fits with the SugarPea SugarSketch 41!

  My daughter is 7 hours away at college and I miss her more than anything in the world! It's real ruff! And...I love, love, love these adorable puppies from the SugarPea Hot Diggity Dog set.  She's been missing her dog too, so this set was perfect for the occasion!

I paired it up with a Mama Elephant sentiment, well, because it was really just what I wanted to say! I added a little sparkle on the dog tags and around the heart. A black button and twine ties it together!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to get back here a lot sooner!

happy holidays...

Today I'm playing along with a challenge for the first time...The Lawnscaping Challenge! I picked up this adorable stamp set called Toboggan Together by Lawn Fawn and I can't get over how cute it is! I love reindeer and penguins and so this set had my name all over it!

I used a die by MFT to create my shaker card top and perfectly placed sentiment! Lots of sequins in there seperated with a sweet polka dot sheer ribbon and bow with a Santa hat brad! I added shimmer with Stickles to the snowflakes stamped in the shaker card and topped off a few sequins with it too! 

Here's the graphic for the Lawnscaping have to use something you haven't used for a while. Well, since I haven't been here for a few months, everything is my "in with the old"...especially the Santa hat brad! 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a great holiday!

Hello Friend!

Oh my...can you stand it!?! I've been gone for months and now two posts in one day! I have neglected so many of my stamps and I couldn't just watch this one sit there any longer.

I'm playing along with the super uber talented group at Power Poppy! I love everything about them! This month's Power and Spark challenge is Embellish This! And, that I did... using ribbon, stick pins and Prills!  I used the Simply Camellia set and colored this sweet image with my faves...pinks and green (and a little gray). This just happens to be the same colors of the Color Throwdown #368 so I'm joining in on the fun there too! The red is there, I promise! See it on the stick pin! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!


Whisking You a Sweet...Holiday!

Hi! I know I haven't been around on this little blog of mine, but I'm still here! I've been pretty busy... I sent my daughter off to college, changed jobs after 21+ years and we've been busy cleaning out and remodeling the basement for my son to move into so he can save money for a house! But enough about that. The truth is I have missed my craft room terribly and it has been the room where we just put everything temporarily...needless to say, it's a mess! I carved out a little path to get to my desk and there I sat last night, crafting away while hubs was at poker! I loved it!

I just got my new Sugar Pea stamps too, so it was the perfect combination. How cute is this little chef in the Whisky Business set!?! I had to have it the minute I saw it. It's just so sweet! I decided to play along with the Sugar Pea Designs sketch challenge too! 

These are not your usual holiday colors, but that's what I love about them! A little coloring and I was back in my groove! I did a little paper-piecing, added a die cut snowflake for the holiday and a few gems because we all love a little bling! I think it's very "me!" Not too much, not too little...just right!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. I've missed this so much! I even made a second card for another challenge, but I'll post that one later! Have a great day!

I {heart} you - Tiddly Inks Fabby Friday!

Hi there! It's time for my final Fabby Friday as a member of the  Tiddly Inks Design Team! I can't believe how fast the term has gone by and I'm really going to miss the DT and getting an early peek at Christy's great images! 

This sweet little girl is Danni and she is only part of the image called Danni and Danny.  I colored her up with Copics and layered my daughter's favorite color combo together along with some fun flowers and leaves. I added a Lawn Fawn sentiment and a few gems in the flower centers for a little bling! Maybe this one will find it's way to her college dorm soon!

Don't forget to stop on by the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and see what the DT has to inspire you with  today! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
