A couple dog cards

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

I'm swinging in with another evening post to share a couple cards for the current Twofer Card Challenge.


Certainly another fun challenge and so many choices on this one! I thought about it for awhile, I was thinking maybe a llama or sheep or fish...like I said, so many choices. In the end, I went with a dog. Go figure, right?!...lol 


'Dogs Rule...Have a pawsome day!' for a friend who loves dogs. And 'You have my heart'...a simple love card. 

On my love card made a fun background with the bones, rather than keeping everything white. Then when I got to my friendship card I added just a touch of bones in the lower right corner/side. I did a little fussy cutting with my dogs and colored them with colored pencils. Overall, just kept things simple. 


I used an older Neat & Tangled set for my cards. I haven't used this set in a long time and when I was going through my stamps, thought I should put it to use. Older stamps need love too, right?!...

Also, I normally would have posted each of my cards separately as well. But for the love of me, I could not get my editing straight! lol Seriously, I got the one photo edited good then when I went on to my next photo I couldn't get things right! I tried several different ones/times and finally said I'm done. lol Sometimes that editing just gets me...Something so silly, yet it can get me all worked up! lol Anyone else get that way?!...No?...Yes?...Please tell me I'm not alone. ;)  

Well, that's all for me tonight! 

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

Enjoy the journey

Hey y'all! Happy Tuesday!
Hope your week is going well so far?...

My kids have been testing this week, so things have been a little crazy trying to work around their testing times and whatnot. But tomorrow will be the last testing for this week and then they won't have anymore until a couple weeks. So at least they get somewhat of a break from it all. ;) Other than that, things have been good here. :)

I'm stopping in tonight (it's about 8:30pm or so, here) sharing a card for the current PinkFresh Studio April Challenge.


I went with using the card sketch (somewhat loosely) and used some of the colors as well. This was a little bit of a challenge for me to figure out exactly how to put my card together. Though, after quite some days passed by things came to me. At least I think they did?!... ;) 


Well, that's all for me tonight! 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Our love story

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

Half way through the week already! Things just don't ever seem to slow down, do they?! ;) Things still have been good here, just busy, busy, busy.

Anyhow, I do have a card to share and it's for the current Altenew's April Inspiration Challenge.


I tried my best to capture the colors...

I recently (once again) caved in and bought a few new things from Altenew. lol I honestly try my hardest not to buy anything new for awhile and then something happens to come along and well, I just can't always resist the temptation! lol ...sigh...


I actually did some stenciling! Yay! :) I kept my background on the lighter side but still wanted something, so thought stenciling would do the trick. ;) After, I stamped on my images using some inks that were close to the inspiration colors. And to finish things off, some white twine. Simple, yeah?!...

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

AJVD post-Party

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

I apologize for my absentee, lately. Things have been busy but then I came down with something and that took me out. I don't think it was quite the flu but something close to it. Thankfully, I'm doing much better. All this happened while my kids were on spring break, too. They still enjoyed their break even though mom couldn't do much with them. However, I did manage to take them out for ice cream when I felt good enough to get out for bit. So they were happy and content with that. ;)

Anyhow, today I'm up on the A Jillian Vance Design blog sharing a fun card. Here's a little peek...

Adventure Awaits

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

Today, I'm sharing a card a made for the brand new PinkFresh Studio Challenge!

March Monthly Challenge 

Now, I only have one PinkFresh Studio stamp and die set. The inspiration photo shows some beautiful flowers, though my set doesn't have any flowers. So my focus was using just the colors...hopefully, that works for the challenge?! ;) 

I was eyeing this set when it first came out and I finally caved in and bought it. Seriously, is this set cute or what?!...


I kept things clean and just did a fair amount of coloring. I did use the matching dies for my little teapot and balloons, as well as the larger cup and balloons. The little clouds, birds, and sentiment I just stamped on my card itself. Sweet, yeah?!...

That's all for me today. I'm off to charge my laptop and then will be back later for some much needed blog visiting and commenting! :)

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

Thanks and YOU amaze me

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

It feels like I haven't blogged in forever, minus posting my DT stuff! Things have been good but still so busy. And if I didn't have enough things going on, today our dishwasher decided to die on us. I swear, if it's not one thing it's another. Anyone else feel that way?!...The plus side, I'll have a shiny new dishwasher soon. ;) Today also is the start of my kids Spring break. So I'm hoping to have much more crafty time and blogging done! Yay! :)

Anyhow, I have two cards to share...that's right, two cards. I'm playing along with the current Twofer Card Challenge.


Honestly, it took me a bit to come up with these. I tried a few different things at first and wasn't really feeling it, so left things alone and went back to it the next day. Then this is what happened...


This card makes the perfect 'friendship' card, don't you say?!...I kept things simple and just did a little bit of masking with my flowers and leaves. For my yellow rose, I decided on a bottom corner placement along with a branch of leaves at my top corner.


Then we come to a simple 'thank you' card. For my pink rose, I went for the center on my card and added some black outline roses for a background.


Both cards have the same two stamp sets used. A rose set for my roses and leaves and another set for my sentiments. Simple and sweet, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Feel better soon

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

Things just keep on staying busy for me! I think it's partially because my husband hasn't had a day off in almost a week and things are catching up to me...Mama needs break. ;) Hopefully this weekend things will mellow out and next week will be less busy. Anyone else been feeling extra busy lately?...

Anyhow, I do have a card to share today! :) I made this for the current March Inspiration Altenew Challenge.

Altenew _March 2018_Inspirationphoto

Such pretty inspiration, right?!...

I focused just on the colors and seeing the blue dome in the picture, I thought that my blue should 'pop' out some from the other colors. 


I kept things pretty simple. I just randomly stamped on my flowers and then colored them in using Altenew markers. To finish things off, I added my sentiment and a touch of gold glitter cardstock. Easy peasy, right?!...

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

Be wild and free

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

It's like I want things to slow down some and it's just not happening! lol Lately, it seems like there's always something that needs to be done. And it's already March, where did February go?!...Seriously, is it just me?!...

Anyhow, I do have a card to share today. Yay! :) I bought some new paper to color on with colored pencils (other than the white I have) and what better way to put it to use with making a card?! ;)


I kept my card nice and clean and just added a little bit of color here and there. I haven't used this stamp set in quite some time, so thought I'd put it to use. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your Friday and weekend...see you soon!

My heart beats for you...

Hey y'all! Happy Tuesday!
Hope your week is going good and all is well?!...

My kids have a lot of testing and whatnot going on this week and the upcoming months. So things have been busy with all of that. Though at the same time I get somewhat of a break for a bit because of them testing. And you know what that means?!...crafty time for mom!! lol :)

Bummer...I made this card for the current CAS-ual Fridays Challenge...BUT I completely missed the deadline!! Ack!


Well, there's always next time and I'll be sure to note a reminder to myself for the deadline. ;) Though, I'm still gonna share my card here.

Happy Sunday!

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

Things have been good here, just somewhat busy. ;)

I thought I'd swing in today and share a just for fun card. Once again, I dipped into my husbands wallet (lol) and bought the new Ornamental Flower stamp and die set from Altenew. Something about that flower that I just couldn't resist! Then again, I think I say that every single time. lol Seriously, who doesn't love their stamps?!...


Now I should say, I did not use all the layers for my flower. I actually only used the last two layering ones. I did make another card using all the layers, which I'll share at a later time. Though, I was just having fun and decided to try a few different things. ;)

That's all for me today. I'm gonna do some more photo editing as well as making some blog visits...so I'll see you soon! :)

Two cards, one challenge.

Hey y'all!
Hope your week is starting off right and all is well?!...

I'm swinging in today to share two cards for the current Twofer Card Challenge #2.



I actually almost forgot about this challenge! Say, what?!...lol I played along with the first one and saw the second one but didn't think of writing anything down (which was a mistake lol). Thankfully, I was browsing some blogs and saw it come up. So glad that happened. Not that it's the end of the world or anything but I do enjoying playing along and supporting crafty friends! :) 


I actually dip in to my 'older/never been used pile' again...it's nice when that happens, right?! ;) So I changed up the layout of my cards, as well as come of the colors and of course, a different theme for each. I also kept everything one layer. Pretty simple, yeah?!...


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

Howdy!!

Hey y'all! Happy Valentine's day!!
Hope all is well?!...

I had my sweet little Valentine's...who certainly enjoyed their little gifts. ;)

Things have been busy! I've been running around here and there trying to get my youngest his birthday gifts. Let alone, trying to figure how I'm making his birthday cake. Well I should say the cake isn't the problem because I do always make them their cakes. It's the darn decorations he told me he wanted! lol His request: I want dinosaurs on top with party hats on and one of them holding a little birthday cake. Say what?!!...lol I went looking for some dinosaurs today and thought I found some that could work but once picking them up they were way too heavy! So now I'm back to square one. I have until Saturday to figure this all out since Sunday is his birthday, hopefully it'll all come together?! ;) Other than that, there's been a range of things going on, though I could be typing for hours and no need to bore you with all my chaos. lol ;)

Anyhow, I do have a card to share! Yay! :)
I'm joining in with the fun at the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge.


Well, I definitely got my fingers inky! lol 


Pretty much complete opposite from my go-to CAS style. But I had fun and that's what count's, right?!...I used two LF inks for my background and the used another two inks for my cacti. After I made some 'hills' (so to speak) from the speech bubble border die, I just cut off the parts I didn't need. Then assembled everything together, using some foam tape on certain layers and then topped things off with a splash of sequins. Pretty simple, yeah?!...

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

P.S.
I apologize for not being around as much...though, I will be catching up on my visits very soon!

Kind words...

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

Besides posting my design team projects, I feel like it's been minute since I posted anything! I apologize about that. To be honest everything has been just fine, though my crafty mojo seemed to been on vacation. lol (Some of you that follow me on Facebook, may had seen that I posted about it.) With so many cute releases coming out and all the beautiful projects I've been seeing, I've been overwhelmed by it all. Anyone else feeling that way?...

I am happy to say, I feel like my mojo has ended it's vacation and made it back to me. ;) So today I'm sharing a card I made for the current Altenew's February 2018 Challenge.


Beautiful inspiration, right?!...


Yes, I kept my card ultra clean. I thought I'd let my big bloom do the talking. Which I did a little masking with and colored with Altenew markers. Not sure if you have tried their markers, yet?...But they have been my go to from day one of getting them. I'm no expert at coloring but they do make me feel that way. lol I love them! (this is just my personal opinion) 


Once I finished my coloring I added a sentiment piece. Which after adding it, I second guess the whole thing because wasn't sure if it was 'readable' over the bloom some?...But then thought, yes it is okay?... 

That's all for me today. I'm off to do some visiting and commenting. :)

I need s'more...

Hey y'all! Happy Friday!!

I'm swinging back in today to share a card for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! It has been waaay too long since I've played along with their challenge. Seeing the inspiration board and having been just delivered to me a new set of theirs, I thought I'd better play along. ;)


I've been wanting Lawn Fawn's new Sweet Friends set since the first day I saw it. And finally after waiting a little bit, I took the plunge and bought it. :) 


Oh, what's this?!...I used some patterned paper! And look, there's even a little bit of layers to my card! lol I still think thinks is somewhat CAS, though sometimes I enjoy throwing different things together to see what happens. It's good to have fun, right?!...


Well, that's all for me. I'm off to do some much needed visiting and commenting. :)
