Many thanks

Hey y'all!
Happy Thursday, hope you're week is going well?!...

It's been the first week back to school for my kids. So my time has been with them and getting back to a somewhat normal schedule. ;) Hopefully by the next week or so, things will be smooth sailing and I can figure out when to sneak in some crafty time. Last school year, it seemed nights worked best and that's sort of what I've been doing already. So...I probably just stick with that. ;)


Anyhow, I am swinging in to share a card I made for the current PinkFresh Studio August Challenge. I also was inspired by Alice's card HERE, so I decided to CASE her card and mix it into the challenge. :)


Well, that's all for me today. I'm off to do some blog visits and commenting! :)

Best Wishes

Hey y'all!
Happy Saturday, hope you're enjoying the weekend?!...

It's been rain and thunderstorms here, off and on. So nothing but staying inside for the most part and crafting when I can. ;)

I'm swinging in to share a 'just for fun' card. I FINALLY put to use the Make A Fish die from Waffle Flower! It only has taken me a year...lol...Well, maybe not a year but a long time! lol ;) I fell in love with this die when I first saw it! And I wanted it for the longest time but things never seemed to 'line up for me' or 'I spaced it'. Then I happened to be browsing the internet, when something told me to look for it. I did and it happened to be on sale (bonus) and the rest is history. ;)


Well, thank goodness for a print out on how to assemble this fish! lol I first tried without anything and was easily lost with what pieces go with what. Not that it was bad looking, I just didn't use over half the pieces! lol Thankfully I had some sense to me to look at the die on Waffle Flower and found the chart showing everything. lol Note: I still didn't use every piece because of the direction I was going with things. But I will be making more and using all the pieces for sure. So many options. ;)

Something about me, I love koi fish and so that's what I was trying to replicate. We have so many koi fish at our zoo. There is always this one that is tucked away in a little nook (so to speak) and it is the biggest most awesome koi ever! It is white with accents of black, red, and orange. So that's what led me to my color choices. I even added a touch of silver glitter cardstock. If you really look closely at a koi fish (and perhaps most fish) I swear there seems to always be a shimmer to them!?!...So that's where the silver came from. ;)

Well, I'm sure I talked enough. lol
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your weekend! :)

I hope you feel beautiful today

Hey y'all!
Hope your week is going well?! :)

I'm swinging in today to share a card I made for the current Altenew July Inspiration Challenge. Nothing like waiting until last minute, right?!  lol ;)


I actually had this card made for awhile but it was giving me a hard time with editing it. So I kept taking a break from it, then going back to it, and on and on that went. lol But I after so many ongoing tries with the editing, I just settle on what I thought was the best photo. ;)


Don't you just love all the layering flowers Altenew has to offer?!...(There are so many I still want. It's a long wish list. ;))

I layered my flowers in the colors from the inspiration photo. Then made a background using just one part of the leaves, rather than layering the leaves. After I simply assembled everything onto my base card and topped things off with some jewels and a sentiment. Simple, yeah?!...

That's all for me today.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great week and see you soon!

Ten Thousand Thanks

Hey y'all!
Happy Saturday, hope all is well?!...

I'm swinging in to share a card I made for the current Paper Smooches July Challenge.


I was able to pick up some of their new goodies and couldn't wait to use some! I say 'some' because I just may have bought too much. lol Is there even a such thing as buying too much of stamps and/or dies?!...Probably. lol


Anyhow, as you can see I kept things nice and simple. ;) I just did a little ink blending, die cutting, and stamping. That's it! Easy peasy, right?!...

Well, that's all for me today.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your weekend! :)
