A day with you...

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

*for my AJVD post, please scroll down.

I'm swinging back in today to share a card for the current PinkFresh Studio August Challenge.


I didn't really have a plan for my card, though I knew I wanted to use some of the new goodies that I got. ;)


I kept everything light and simple...
I started by coloring in my buildings and then built a scene with the other images. I was going to color in all my images but then thought I liked the look of just the buildings colored. So I left it as is. To finish things off, I added some gold jewels and my sentiment/banner. Simple, right?!...

Well, that's all for me today!

Hooray!

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

Things have been busy here getting my kids ready for school on Monday. Though, having them homeschooled does make things a little easier on me...and I'm sure them too. And by easier I mean, not having to worry about their backpacks, packing lunches, walking them to school, etc. ;)

Anyhow, I do have a card to share today. Another just for fun card and saw Honey Bee Stamps current Facebook challenge, so thought I'd play along too.


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

To my favorite...

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

I am sooo happy to say that all is well here, now! Everyone seems to be back to normal and feeling great! :) We still have a couple weeks left to enjoy summer before school starts back up, so needless to say, we're gonna soak up as much sun and surf as we can!

Anyhow, I have a 'rainy day' card to share. Well that's what I'm calling my 'just for fun' card, today. lol I had this card edited for a little bit and was waiting for a good time to use it. Since it's been nothing but rain and thunderstorms here, I thought it was fitting. ;)


I tried my hand at some coloring again with colored pencils. It may not be the best coloring, I don't know?...But I'm still sharing because I do like the card.

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

Be the reason...

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

Well, here I am again and I'm happy to say that my kids are pretty much better! But, mom and dad woke up this morning and felt not so good! Ugh. I really thought things were done. I haven't pushed myself too hard today, even though I'm taking care of things around the house. heehee...call me stubborn. I'm refusing to think or say I'm sick. lol Crossing my fingers for a good nights sleep and tomorrow will be a better day. 

Anyhow, I have a just for fun card to share...SMILE. :)


I had some fun making different backgrounds with inks. I made a few different ones but really liked the colors on this one. I wanted my background to do the talking but also my sentiment to be the focus, so I chose a nice big sentiment. Easy peasy and sweet, right?!...

That's all for me today.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

There have been times...

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

Well, the sickness is still in our household. :( This bug doesn't seem to want to go away and I'm not sure how much more I can possibly disinfect our home?!...My poor daughter seems to have the worse of everything. I had to take her yesterday to the emergency doctor and come to find out, she has an ear infection and she popped a blood vessel in her eye which happens to be the same eye she has pink eye in and all this on top of the coughing. Feel so bad for her...she is on antibiotics now, so hopefully she gets some relief soon. This is not how we planned spending the summer.

Anyhow, enough with my rambling on about having a sick household. (lol) I do have a card to share...yay!

I made this for the current Altenew July Inspiration Challenge. I actually saw the challenge when it first started but nothing was coming to my mind nor working for me...until today. ;)




Well, that's all for me today. I'm off to make some dinner and maybe try to whip another card and/or some blog visits, etc...honestly, I just don't know. lol Hoping I have the energy to do so. ;)

Rainbow of watercolors

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

Just when I think I'm getting back on track of things, I end up with another sick kiddo. I'm hoping this will be the last of whatever 'bug' this is...certainly, it is no fun. And we still want to enjoy the rest of summer before school starts back up in August. So, fingers crossed. ;)

Anyhow, I do have a card to share today. Yay! I made this for the current PinkFresh Studio July Challenge.


I just had some good ol' fun making this card! I used a 'rainbow' of inks and then spritzed some water onto my stamped image and that's it. I just let the watercolor paper and water do the work for me. ;) Simple and fun, right?!...I played with this technique a few different times, just to see the different outcomes and then chose which one I liked best. To finish things off, I added a sweet sentiment and foam tape on the back before adhering to my card base. Easy peasy, right?!...

Well, that's all for me today.

Live Laugh Love

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

I've been recovering from the 4th...lol Every year we throw a big gathering and this year seemed to have topped all the other years. There were so many people that I couldn't even keep track of half of them! I told my husband that we need to go back down to having only exclusive invites. lol I think also it's a sign that we're not as young as we used to be. lol Not sure how many days I was dragging feet for?!...But feeling back to myself now! ;)

Anyhow, I do have a card to share. Yay! And it's a just for fun card. Still working through my pile of 'have yet use' stuff. ;)


Well, that's all for me today. I'm going to do some blog visits/commenting and try to fit in some crafty time, too!

Friend...

Hey y'all!
Hope all is well and you're having a great week so far?!! :)

Things have been busy with summer activities, here. Just some fun in the sun at the beach, spending time outside, celebrating birthday's, and all the other daily things around the house. I still have been crafting away, though that has been happening later in the day and/or at night. ;)

I do have a card to share with you today! Yay! :) It's another just for fun card, no challenges or anything.



Well, that's all for me today. I'm gonna do some blog commenting/visits here soon and try to create some more cards I have in mind. :)

Thank you

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

I'm swinging in with a short and sweet post, today. I have a sick kiddo and I'm hoping it's a quick little thing because tomorrow is his birthday! I'm also crossing my fingers that nobody else ends up sick. Other than all that things are good. ;)


I do have a card to share and it was a just for fun card, but after making it thought it'd be great for the June Altenew Inspiration Challenge, too! :)


Well, that's all for me! I'm off to do some commenting/visits and try to craft a little bit more. ;)

Thanks a bunch

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

I'm quickly typing up this post as we have some severe storms rolling in...
I just wanted to share a fun shaker card I made. No challenges or design team work, just for fun. Annnd I got a new background piece for my photos and tweaked a few other things, so hopefully my photos will look better and be more consistent...keyword, hopefully. lol ;)

You are magical

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

Somewhat a lazy Saturday, here. Just a little bit of crafting, gardening, and cooking. :) 

Anyhow, I do have a card to share. Yay! I'm playing along with the current PinkFresh Studio June Challenge.


Once again, I did some heat embossing and watercoloring. Annnd I bought another PinkFresh Studio stamp set! :) I only had the one set and thought since I used it a few times that I should order one more set for the time being. ;) 

Since I don't have any of the PinkFresh Studio 'bows', I went with using the colors and adding a little bow with my twine. 


I tried my best to capture the colors and embossing with my card. Though again, it seems to be tricky for me. You know photos are already hard enough at times and these watercolor/embossing ones seem to be even harder. At least for me. If you have any tips, I'd love to hear them?! ;) So because of having a hard time, I added a couple different photos/close ups of my card. Hopefully it helps you to see everything?!...


Well, that's all for me. Enjoy your Saturday and see you soon!

Thank you

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

Once again, I've been a little MIA. My kids finished school last month and my husband started a new job after leaving a company he was with for 8 years. So it's been an adjustment for all of us. Then our dog also had a severe case of hives, which she is being treated for now and she also had surgery a couple days ago. Needless to say, things have been a little all over the place. I'm hoping that things will slow down some and get back to the usual. ;)

Anyhow, I do have a card to share. Yay! I'm playing along with the current Altenew June Inspiration Challenge.


Hold onto your seats...I did some heat embossing and watercoloring, in one! lol When have I ever done that?!...lol I think I've always done one or the other, but not both together. Well, after making this card I'll probably be doing more of it. ;) 

I tried my best to capture the soft watercolors/embossing...this card proved to be harder than I thought. ;) 

Honestly, I had an idea and my head and just went with it. Something about watercoloring is very relaxing...I couldn't tell you how long this card took me, but I enjoyed every minute of it. :) 


Well, that's all for me today.

Life happens. Coffee helps.

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

I'm keeping my post short and sweet, today. ;)


I'm swing in to share a card for the Coffee Lovers Spring/Summer Blog hop. If you haven't checked out any of the Coffee Lovers hops, you should do so! There is sooo much inspiration to be found and they're a ton of fun! (just saying) :)

On to my card.


I kept things simple. I did a little stenciling and a little coloring with colored pencils. I somewhat mixed and matched different sets for my card and just had fun with things. ;) Sweet, yeah?!...

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

P.S.
Many of you normally see me commenting away on the Coffee Lovers hops. Though sadly, this time around I won't be able to make all the rounds. :( However, I have been peeking at all the projects in the gallery and I have to say, ALL are FABULOUS!! :)

You are my greatest adventure

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

Today, I'm swinging in to share a card I made for the current PinkFresh Studio May Challenge.


I still only have one stamp set from PinkFresh Studio (I plan on changing that soon) so hopefully you're not tired of seeing the same set?! ;) Though, I did change it up a little this time and used just the balloons...heehee. 

My inspiration came from the colors and seeing all the wonderful projects. 


I did some simple watercoloring for my balloons and then used the match die with them. After I added a simple stitch around my card using a black pen. Once done, I added my balloons to my card, a little sentiment banner, and some light pink jewels. Easy peasy, yeah?!...

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

P.S.
You should be seeing more of me soon...my kids are done with school on May 31st and that should bring much more free time for me. ;)

Dream Big!

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

Things are good here and of course, things are still busy! ;) Tomorrow my oldest son will be 12 years old!?!...How in the world did that happen?!...I don't know. lol He's a little bummed that there's school tomorrow, though I promised him we'll make it up to him. He wants to go to Dave & Buster's, so Dave & Buster's it will be. ;)

Anyhow, onto my card. I'm still using up goodies that have yet to been used or only used once or so. (Still trying not to buy anything...though are there ever some things that I want! lol)

And I can't tell if my eyes are playing tricks on me or what!?! lol My photo seems a little 'fuzzy' to me?...Though, maybe I've been looking at the computer screen too long?...Or my eyes are tried?...lol Not sure how it looks on your end, but I hope okay? ;) I apologize if not...darn editing. lol 

I have used this set before, but I couldn't resist coloring another one of those elephants! So cute, right?!...I used colored pencils and kept everything pretty soft and straight forward. I also used another one of those 'storybook' dies for my background...I can't seem to get enough of those, either. ;)


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

Style. Charm. Beauty.

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

Time just keeps on flying by...things have still been busy, here. I think with trying to finish up the last bit of school for my kids, DT projects, and a mix of a few other things, it makes my time go way too quick! By the time I get to trying to blog, I'm already caught up in something else. Which drives me crazy because I'm usually pretty good with my blogging and visits. And I'll say it again, hopefully I'll be back to my normal schedule soon. It's bound to happen, right?!... ;)

Anyhow, I have a card to share today. Yay! I made this for the current May Altenew Inspiration Challenge. 


My inspiration came from the colors and flowers. Also, while looking at the Altenew store/blog many projects inspired me, as well. 


Yep. I had to pull that stencil out again for my background. ;) This time though, I used a pink ink rather than grey. Then I did some old fashioned cutting (fussy cutting) with my stamped image. And after added a little bit of color to a few of the blooms, using some 'crayons' with a wet paintbrush. I added a few different words in a aqua color before adding my 'love' in black. Easy peasy, right?!...


Thanks so much for stopping by!
