Joy

Hey y'all! Happy Monday!
Hope your week is off to a great start?!...

I know this week for many brings a lot of cooking, running around, and time with family. My kids only have tomorrow for school then they're out for Thanksgiving break. Which I have to take my oldest son for some blood work on Wednesday and then there is a lot of prepping and dessert making for Thanksgiving day. Granted it's only us for Thanksgiving (and this year we invited our neighbor over to be with us because she doesn't have any family) though we love to have turkey sandwiches for leftovers. And how doesn't love to have pumpkin pie and/or pumpkin roll for breakfast the next day?! lol I know I do! :)

Anyhow, I'm swinging in to share one of the Christmas cards I'll be sending out to family/friends. I actually made 4 cards with this style. I'm trying my best the get all these Christmas cards done, so they can be mailed on time!! Last year, I was late! lol Though, better late than never, right?! ;)


I wanted things to be a little 'rustic' feel so I went with using a woodgrain background stamp on kraft cardstock and then some quick and easy coloring for my poinsettias. Pretty simple, right?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by...I'm off to do some commenting!
Have a great week! And if I don't see you before Thursday, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!! :)

AJVD post-Peace

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

Just quickly swinging in today, as in it's quite a busy Friday for me! Doctor appointments for two of my kids, grocery shopping, pay bills, etc. Oh, and we're gonna try to go to the zoo to see the dinosaurs!...Busy but some fun in there, too! ;)

Anyhow, I'm up on the A Jillian Vance Design blog sharing a Christmas card. Which for this card I went way out of my comfort zone! Here's a little peek...


Be sure to swing on over to the A Jillian Vance Design blog to see my full card. And while you're there, I'd love it if you would leave a comment there too! :)

Enjoy your Friday and see you soon!

Pumpkin spice...

Hey y'all! Happy Wednesday!!
Hope all is well?!...

Oh where, oh where is the time going?!!...lol Seriously, things just keep flying on by and I can't believe next week is Thanksgiving, already!! Ack!

Anyhow, I quick stop in for me today. I'm sharing a 'just for fun' card. No challenges or DT work or anything else. I was browsing the Unity Stamp Co. store and as much as I wanted to buy some more stamps, I refrained from doing so. I mean, I do already have some and actually haven't even used some of those. So let me start at the 'never ending pile of stamps that I have yet to use' and ink some up...again. lol (If you remember I did this same thing in the past but obviously never finished my pile. Who really knows if I ever will. lol)


As you can see, I kept things simple. And no no-line watercoloring this time, just some simple coloring with colored pencils. I wish you could see the card in person because there is a touch of a very light cream color of my cup and lid. (I just can't get a photo to show it!)


Well, that's all for me today. I'm off to do some commenting and maybe even find a little time to craft... :)

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

Practically Purr-fect...in every way

Hey y'all! Happy Sunday!
Hope all is well and you're enjoying your day?!...

Nothing but a somewhat lazy Sunday here. A little bit of cleaning and a perhaps a trip to the grocery store...then some crafting (if I can sneak in some time). :)


Anyhow, I'm swinging in today to share a card I made for the current Little Tangles Challenge. Once again, it's been waaay too long since I've played along, so I'm quite happy that I finally got to! Yay! :)


Yep. Some more no-line watercoloring. I'm telling you, I just can't get enough of it right now! I also figure the more practice the better I'll get with things?!...Hopefully. lol


Well, that's all for me today! I'm off to do some commenting...

Watercolor bear

Hey y'all! Happy Friday!! :)

So I'm back today sharing a card for the current CASology Challenge! It has been waaay too long since I've played along with any challenges, as well as blogging (for something other than DT stuff)!! Lately, I've been taking little breaks from working on DT stuff to create a card or two. Which (knock on wood) it's been working for me so far, so hopefully this is the start of me getting back on track. ;)


Anyhow, I've been practicing the whole no-line watercolor technique and I'm sharing another card I've done with it. The other cards I made using this technique was for my DT, so you may not have seen them?...But at least you'll see one now. heehee :)


I can't say I'm the best at it but I do love the technique! It's very relaxing and I'm hooked on the end results of it. ;) I decided on not adding a sentiment and honestly there was two reasons for that. 1. I couldn't decide/figure out where I wanted it to be and 2. I didn't want to mess anything up and have to start over. lol Also, you should a bunch of 'tiny' little things on my card?!...Flowers, berries, a little birdie... ;)


Well, that's all for me today! I'm on my way to do some much needed commenting and visiting, so I'll see you soon!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your Friday and weekend!!
