I start off the day with...

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

*For my AJVD post, please scroll down.*

It's been good here, busy and somewhat tiring, but good. My husband has been out of town for the past week, so it's just been me and the kids. Though, he gets back in later today! Needless to say, we're excited to have him back home! ;)

 I didn't really craft much at all while he was gone, until today that is...(I might have done some shopping though. lol)

I'm sharing a card I made for the current Unity Stamp Co. mini Facebook challenge, which is all about rainbow of colors. I was going to just share it on there, but thought I'd share it here too. ;)


So very simple of a card, yeah?!...I used some watercolors and painted them directly on my stamp and then stamped it on my paper. I did quite a few panels because every time you stamped it on the paper you get a different look. Which I love, some were darker with the colors, some more 'blotchy', etc. ;) Once done with my watercoloring, I simply stamped on a sentiment in the middle using black ink and then topped things off with a touch of burlap twine. Easy peasy, right?!...

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

every birthday needs confetti

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

Of course things are still busy here, but things are good. :)

I'm swinging back in today to share a card I made for the current Altenew April Inspiration Challenge.


Such happy and bright colors, yeah?!...Gotta love the photo, too! ;) 


I kept things very simple. I used the all the colors for my confetti and then after stamped on a sweet sentiment in the middle. I was going to leave things as it was, but then thought a frame would look nice around it. ;) So I made a frame using a couple dies and then used some foam tape on the back of it, to give it some dimension. Easy peasy, right?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great Friday and weekend! :)

You're TURTLEY awesome

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

If you been following and reading my blog post, you know that the past little bit has been rough on me. I apologize if some of my posts sounded like a 'debbie downer' (nobody wants to be a debbie downer...don't be a debbie downer lol) (sorry, had to do that). However, I do want to say that I while I still have some things going on, I, myself am doing good. :) I even had a ladybug land on my hand today, so that must be a good thing, right?! ;)

Today, I'm sharing a fun card I made for the current Paper Smooches April Challenge.


You think a sketch challenge would be so easy, but I haven't done any in awhile so this took some thinking for me! But I had fun! :) 


I had bought some 'Nuvo Bursts' awhile back and have barely put them to use. (I am so good at doing that. lol) So when I saw this sketch I thought they would work perfectly for a background. ;) After, I did a little coloring with markers for my turtle and then added on my sentiment piece. Easy peasy, right?!...

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

It's the little things...

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

Just when I thought things were looking up, new things hit. I don't want to go into details but let's just say things are somewhat out of control right now and I'm just looking for a break. :( I have an appointment to go to today and hoping that it will give me some much needed relief and hope. I am so ready to feel good and have things back to normal...so ready.

Anyhow, trying to block some things out and stay busy, I did make a card. :)


I saw the current PinkFresh Studio April Challenge and just knew I wanted to play along! It's been awhile since I made a shaker card. ;)


As you can see I kept things nice and simple. :) I used the big paisley die with a dark blue cardstock to make my shaker. I filled it with some gold, clear, and white sequins. And for my background or 'back of the shaker' I used a rainbow patterned paper. To finish things off, I stamped a tiny sentiment on white cardstock and then made a little 'flag/banner' and added it to my card. Easy peasy, right?!...

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