You're Too Sweet - Tiddly Inks Fabby Friday!


Hi there! It's time for another Fabby Friday at Tiddly Inks!  Here's my super sweet summertime card using Sweet Treat Wryn! I don't know about you, but I am ready for summer! This little cutie has got all of the best things about summer...flip flops, mini skirt, tank tops and yummy ice cream!

I added lots of bright colors with this fun ice cream paper, an ice cream cone brad, some dimpled ribbon tied in a knot and a few colorful sequins too!

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

Tiddly Inks Challenge - May Flowers!


I hope you are ready to see some of the cutest images ever...starting with this one! Here's a new release Tiddly Inks image called Wryn - Scooting By! She is ready to scoot anywhere with her pot of flowers. And speaking of flowers, today's new Tiddly Inks challenge theme is May Flowers! You can find all the details on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.

You could say this one took me a little longer to make! It has been colored and paper-pieced, shaded and shaded some more, then fussy cut all around. I added six die cuts...fence, grass, rolling hill, fence in distance, a little cloud, my sentiment and a sweet butterfly! This card is full of polka dots too - my favorite!

Take a look at the challenge blog to see more beautiful cards by the DT. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Tiddly Inks Fabby Friday!


Hi there! I am so excited today! It's my first Fabby Friday post as a member of the Tiddly Inks DT! I have always loved Tiddly Inks stamps and couldn't resist the opportunity to try out for another DT again. I was so surprised I made it! But, let me tell you about this sweet stamp...Wedding Bells!


This beautiful stamp can be used for engagements, weddings, even prom! I colored with Copics and added layers of dimension with die cuts and ribbons, roses and lots of confetti! Be sure to check out the rest of the new DT's creations at the Tiddly Inks Blog!


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Have a Royal Birthday!


Hi there! I just popped in here before work to throw my hat in the ring for the Tiddly Inks April DT Call! I have decided to get back to doing what makes me happy, so here I am. And, here's a TI Sweet Tooth cutie called Let Us Eat Cake! She's adorbs and I love making cards for little princesses!

I paper-pieced her girly dress and added a lot of bling to this card! Sequins, gems and glitter do the trick! I added a die cut banner and changed up the patterns! This sweet little girl is going to make my friend's daughter feel like a princess on her birthday! Who wouldn't love to get this big butter cream cake on their birthday too!?!

Wish me luck! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

You Are Always on My Mind

Hi there! I promise, I really haven't dropped off the face of the earth! It's been a busy year for me so far and with an upcoming high school graduation, college visits almost 7 hours away, my company being purchased after 73 years in business...there's a lot going on!

I did sneak in some time in my oh-so-messy craft room to create something for the Power Poppy Power & Spark Challenge. This month's theme is a Pop of Pastel! Here's the Azalea stamp set all decked out in pastels...

I went pretty traditional on this one. I wanted to take a simple layout and build layers on it, adding just a few touches here and there!  My sentiment is popped up for dimension and you know I love me a sparkly sheer ribbon and some gems!. There's even more sparkle if you look at the detail pic...I added some Stickles to the ends of the flower stamens and some Glossy Accents to the vase! 

Yep, I went old school on this one! This is my comfort zone and I needed some of this therapy lately! It was nice to sit and focus on something other than the zillion life decisions we have been making lately! 

I'm planning on spending some more time in the craft room (to make it a little neater), but that will have to wait until after this weekend's college orientation.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Let's Chat!



Hi there! I had a little time to squeeze into my craft room (it's pretty messy) and it felt so good to sit down and play along with the SugarSketch Challenge over at SugarPea Designs.

I colored this sweet little girl from the Tin Can Chat stamp set and paper-pieced and colored her cute polka dot dress adding some sparkly Stickles to the dots!

Now, I don't recall ever attempting black curly hair, but after putting this card together, I felt there was no other choice and I'm glad I made the attempt. I did add a few curls here and there to fill in and even added that little curl over her ear, but over all, I think it works!

I didn't get too fancy with embellishments...just a black button with some twine tied in a knot and frayed the edges. And, it looks like I didn't color the tin can, but the light shading I did with a cool gray disappeared when I adjusted the lighting on the computer. I wanted it to be white anyway!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope to be here more often!

Sending You Sweet Holiday Wishes!


Hi there! I'm back and I made a card! It's been a while...a long while...but, I'm not going to bore you with details.  I'm just so happy to be sharing a card with you today. I purchased this sweet Frosted Gingerbread stamp from Power Poppy some time ago and it just happened to be the first thing I saw when I sat down at my craft desk after a long break, so that's what inspired me...that, and candy!

I haven't colored in forever and it was so much fun to start again! It's not that I haven't been getting crafty...it's just been for my daughter's cheer squad. Let's just say I have seen my fair share and then some of red, black and white everything lately!

I hope you like this super sweet holiday wish I made for you. I'm sharing it at the Power Poppy Peep of the Week post...here!  Have a great day!
