Life is short...Stay awake for it

Hey y'all!

I'm quickly swinging back in (as promised) to share my daughters card for the Coffee Lover's Summer Blog Hop.


She was wanting to create with me, so I had her pull up a stool and work with some sets that I had sitting out. She choose and did what she wanted. ;) She's very much into 'Kawaii' characters/drawing/etc. so needless to say her card would feature some of that. ;)


Don't you just get a kick out of her faces?!...She hand drew all those and even the coffee cozy (which she told me she messed up on it but it was okay. lol). She even was watching me try my hand at no line watercoloring and decided she'd try her hand at it too.

Thanks again for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and see you soon!

Happy Everyday

Hey y'all! Happy Saturday! :)
Hope all is well?!...

Whew! Talk about MIA! I feel bad for not posting much in the past week or so...I'm not trying to make excuses for anything. Though, we had some family visiting and with the kids being out of school (since May) my days are filled. Filled in a good way, though FILLED. Also the weather is more back to 'normal' for us, so yes, we've been at the beach...daily. :)


Anyhow, enough with my rambling. The Coffee Lover's Summer Blog Hop is in full swing and I have some cards to share for it. Actually, I have two cards made so far and my daughter made one as well. :) (For today, I'm just sharing one of my cards and then I'll swing back in with my daughters card.)


Simple, yeah?!...I somehow managed to use patterned paper, too! lol (If you know me, you know that's a challenge for me.) I also mixed and matched some different stamp/die sets...just was having fun. To finish things off, I added a wood veneer piece and a touch of gold glitter paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and see you soon!

You are a blessing

Hey y'all! Happy Thursday, almost Friday!
Hope all is well?!...

I've managed to get my DT work done for now and had some time to play before prepping our house for company...not that our house is messy, just like to have things 'fresh' when company is over. ;)
Also, our weather has been lousy lately! Nothing but thunderstorms, which I do enjoy but usually we get them in the afternoon/evening for a bit then it clears up. Though, this all day thing...not happening. We've only been to the beach once so far because of the weather. That's unacceptable for us. lol However, after today it does suppose to be more of our routine weather forecast. ;)

Anyhow, with the little break in storms I was able to get some photos snapped and edited. So I'm sharing a card I made for the current June Altenew Inspiration Challenge.

June 2017 Inspiration Challenge – White On White Focal Point

I was inspired by the bouquet of flowers and also by Debby's card. So I based my card off of those things and came up with this...


I did some heat embossing with my flowers. (Which I used Altenew's new embossing powder for.) After embossing my flowers, I added some color with colored pencils and then topped my blooms off with a clear glitter pen. 

Wish you could see the sparkle...but trust me, it's there. ;) 

Once done, (because I don't have the matching dies to go with the set I used) I did some fussy cutting. I then layered everything together on my card, popping some flowers up with foam tape. To finish things off, I added my sentiment piece and some jewel drops. Simple, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I'm off to do some commenting...see you soon! 
Enjoy your day!

Be the reason that someone smiles today

Hey y'all! Happy Monday!
Hope your week is starting off right?!...

I have quite the busy week coming up! My mom and step-dad will be visiting us for a little while and I'm trying to get ahead on DT work so I can enjoy the time with family. So I may not be around too much but know I'm still here. ;)

Today, I'm sharing another quick and easy card with you. And yes, still using up those new and unloved stamps. :)


One stamp and done. To 'enhance' the sentiment piece a little bit more, I went over some parts with colored pencils. That's it. Overall, I just had fun and I'm sure this card will come in handy for someone. It's nice when the sentiments can do all the talking, right?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and see you soon!
