Waffle Flower Challenge

Hey y'all! Happy Monday!



Today is a brand new challenge at the Waffle Flower Challenge!

Check out the photo..



Isn't it pretty?!!

So, here's what I came up with.



I focused on the rug. Which I instantly thought of Waffle Flower's doily die. I was trying and going to use the whole die cut, but things just were working for what I was thinking. After some more thinking and playing around, things finally started to come together and work for me. I ended up trimming down the doily to fit inside the circle die. And after, before adhering down my doily, I stamped on some light pink 'stars'. Once done, I then adhered my doily and added my butterfly to the center. Sooo, what you think?!...

Be sure to swing on over to the Waffle Flower Challenge and see all the DT creations! Hope to see you there?!!...

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

congratulations

Hey y'all! Happy Thursday...almost Friday! Yay! :)

Lately, I seem to be on a roll with making cards (knock on wood)! ;) So today I'm back sharing a card I made for the current Casology Challenge and for the current Little Tangles Challenge.



Here's what I came up with.



Once again, I did some shopping! Which seriously, I really need to stop buying more stuff!!! Somebody needs to slap me, if I buy anything more! lol ;) However though, I just couldn't resist some of the things out there! And you know what's gonna do me in again?...The new Lawn Fawn release coming up! Yeah. Problems, I tell ya! Problems! ;)

So, I used Miriam's 'Hoop die' (and 'Gardenia Blooms' set) from Neat & Tangled. Which, I'm in love with! If you don't have the hoop die, I recommend getting it! It is awesome! (This is just my personal opinion. I'm not told to say any of this. ;))

For the flowers I just did a little masking with them. After, I used some distress markers to color my flowers with and added a light/faint blue background around them. Simple, yeah?...

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

You matter to me



Hey y'all! Happy Wednesday! :)

Already the middle of the week! I'm counting down the days until my kids are out of school...come on end of the month! ;)

Anyhow, I'm swinging in to share a card I made, which happens to fit for the current Uniko Studio Challenge. I have followed their blog/challenge for some time now, though have never played! Well, that is until now. ;)

Grab button for Uniko Studio Challenge

Here's my card.



Now, I don't have any Uniko Studio stamps (and I need to change that!), so I went on using an older Jane's Doodles set I have (which I think I may have only used it once, if even that!) and for my sentiment I used CAS-ual Fridays Stamps 'Lovely Greetings' set.

I did some masking with my flowers and left them 'black and white'. Then, did some coloring and cutting to make one of my flowers pop. ;) Simple, yeah?...

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

wishing you...



Hey y'all! Happy Monday!

I've been waiting for my sunlight to come back for some photo taking and I'll be, today I got some! And good thing, because I have some DT stuff that's due pretty much now! lol ;)

Anyhow, my card today is for the current Little Tangles Challenge. I'd like to think it's right up my alley, too! ;)
Here's my card.


Keeping everything nice and simple, I chose a light grey and white pattern paper for my background. Then stamped on some waves and did a little coloring for my sailboat. Added my sentiment and called it good. ;) So, what do think?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Guesting at The Card Concept!

Hey y'all! Happy Wednesday! Hope you're having a great week so far?!...

Today, I have some fun and exciting news to share! I recently was asked by Tracey, if I'd like to Guest Design at The Card Concept for May...of course, I said yes! Yay!  :)


Thank you so much, Tracey!


So, here's what I came up with.


I focused on the woodgrain and 'flowers'. I chose a woodgrain pattern paper and then stamped on my flowers, which I added just a 'hint' of color to the center of them. After, I stamped my sentiment and added some twine. Simple, yeah?...I'd still consider this to be quite CAS, even though I used some pattern paper and twine. ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to swing on over to The Card Concept, to join in on the fun and to see all the DT creations! :) Hope to see you there!...

Enjoy your day!

Life is beautiful

Hey y'all! Happy Monday!



Today, we have a brand new challenge at the Waffle Flower Challenge! :)


Isn't that inspiration photo so pretty?!...

Here's what I came up with.


Yep. The whole photo certainly inspired me. :) I used the circle doily in a light grey ink, for my background. After, I did quite a bit of layering with my flowers, though hopefully it looks like a little bouquet?...And at first I was a little stumped on what to do for a sentiment. But then chose to stamp 'life is beautiful' across my card, towards the bottom. So, what do you think?!...

Be sure to swing on over to the Waffle Flower Challenge and see all the DT creations! While you're there, I hope you'll join us?!!... :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
