Tea...a hug in a mug

Hi y'all! 
Hello Monday, hope your week is starting off right?! :)

Today, I'm sharing a card for the very first challenge at Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge! It's all about coffee and/or tea and snowflakes. 


Without further ado, here's my card...


Tea, anyone?!...I love coffee but I love tea, too! :) I did a lot of mixing and matching from different companies for my card. I think a total of four, five if you're counting the embellishments. ;) I used a big snowflake die and made a stencil with it, then stenciled it on with a light blue ink for my background. After that I added some splatters in black and set things aside. While things were set aside and drying I used a die for the cup/mug and some patterned paper. Then did some die cutting with the word 'tea' in white cardstock. (note: I layered each die cut piece twice and added foam tape on the back of the cup/mug.) Before adhering my cup/mug I stamped on the sentiment. To finish things off, a touch of pearls. Sweet, yeah?!...


Well, that's all for me.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your week!!

Simply splendid

Hi y'all! 

Happy Thursday, almost Friday! :) 

I'm swinging in today to share a fun card I made for the current STAMPlorations January CAS Challenge

Without further ado, here is my card...

Fun, yeah?!...I started with stamping on the cakes by doing a little masking to give it a 'layered' cake. After I did some coloring with colored pencils, of course in a rainbow of colors. ;) To finish things off, a few splatters in black and then a die cut sentiment in white, which I layered a few times. Nice and easy, right?!...

Well, that's all for me.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day! :)

Just a note

Hi y'all! 

Happy Tuesday, hope your week is going well?! :)

I'm swinging in today to share a card I made for the current Pinkfresh Studio January 2022 Challenge. Since the challenge is all about 'year in review' I decided to play with the 2021 March challenge-Flowers. 

Without further ado, here is my card...

I kept things simple. I started with my coloring, which I used colored pencils for. After I added some paint splatters using black paint and then added a touch of jewels. To finish things off, some quick hot foiling for the sentiment and that's it. Easy peasy, right?! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your week!

You're a great friend...Happy New Year!!

Hi y'all!

It may not be Jan.1st but Happy New Year!! May this year brings you happiness, health, and love. :) 

I'm swinging in today to share a 'just for fun' card. I bought myself some new colored pencils with some Christmas money that I had, so I couldn't wait to play with those. And what better way than to ink up a set that I had for way too long, just sitting around, you know. ;)

Without further ado...

Sweet, yeah?!...I had some fun coloring this image, even though it took me a couple days. I actually have a couple more stamped out and I just need to color them. So you'll probably see at least one more of these. ;)  I did do a little hot foiling for the sentiment, though I haven't figured out how to always capture it when editing. ;) 

Well, that's all for me.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day! :)

Fleas Navidad

Hi y'all! 
Hope all is well?! :)

It's a busy time of year, right?! ;) Things have just been so busy for me lately and I've had some unexpected things that caught me off guard. Though, all is well. But it certainly has been a 'whirlwind' for me. Hopefully things will settle down soon. ;) 

Anyhow, I did find some time to create....which felt sooo nice! :) I made a 'just for fun' card using some oldies but goodies from Paper Smooches. Anyone else miss them?...

Fleas Navidad! heehee


Cute, yeah?!...I did some simple coloring using markers. I seriously haven't used markers in who knows how long...though I thought I'd try to see how I do with them. I did enjoy coloring the cute little doggy and I think I blended things good?...I'm going to have to play with them more. I have gotten so used to colored pencils and trying to go back to markers...well...yeah, it'a a little rough. LOL 

Well, that's all for me.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day! :)

Hey there-Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hi y'all! 

Happy Monday, hope your week is starting off right?! :)

I'm swinging in to share a card I made for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Don't you just love these hops?!! :) 


Without further ado, here is my card...


Sweet, yeah?!...I kept things simple and just did a little coloring with colored pencils. I used an old Craftin Desert Divas stamp set, I actually had never even used until now! lol Seriously, why did I wait so long to use it?! lol I realized after coloring that have have a couple areas that I went over/outside the line a little but I think it's okay. ;) To finish my card off, I added a little bit of 'snow' and a die cut sentiment. Simple, right?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great week and see you soon!

Make a wish...

Hi y'all! 

Happy November 1st and Monday, hope you're week is starting off right! :)

I'm swinging in today to share a 'just for fun' card, no challenges or anything. 

Again, I love coloring but it's seems that I continue to be slow at it. lol Though, I'm not complaining about it, I think it's soothing and part of me being slow is because I want things to be 'perfect' (whatever that may be?...). After coloring, I added a little touch of splatters and then stamped on the sentiment. I was going to leave things 'as is' but then added a touch of enamel dots to finish things off. What do you think?...Sweet, yeah?...

Well, that's all for me.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great week and see you soon! :)
