Hello

Hi y'all! :)
Hope all is well?!...It sure has been a minute since I've posted anything. I always think summertime (even though it's not officially summer, yet.) will slow things down some and somehow that just doesn't happen. lol 


Anyhow, I did sneak in some crafty time and made a card for the current Pinkfresh Studio Challenge. Sometimes challenges are just what you need to get your crafty mojo back. ;) 


I kept my card simple, did a little stenciling and of course, die cutting. ;) Oh, and I even did a little hot foiling! :) Pretty straight forward and easy peasy, right?!...

Well, that's all for me. 
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great day and see you soon! :)

Friend

Hi y'all! :)
Hope all is well?!...

It's sure been a minute since I've posted, I apologize about that. I'm still here, though things just got a little busy. ;) 

Anyhow, I did want to share a card I made for the current Taylored Expressions challenge on Facebook. (#TEMakerChallenge) 


I went with 'clean and simple' (as usual lol) and did a little watercolor coloring with watercolor pencils. I haven't used those in who knows how long, but they were starring at me and thought I should try and use them. ;) Pretty straight forward and easy, right?!...

That's all for me today. I'm going to try and create some more and enjoy some sunshine. :)

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

Sending love

Hi y'all! 
Happy Thursday, almost Friday! :)

I'm swinging in to share a card for the current CASology challenge. 


I went back and forth on deciding whether or not to get the Concord & 9th Painted Peony set (only because I really don't need anything more lol)...then when I saw that Ellen Hutson had a sale with Concord & 9th products, I jumped on it and I'm so happy I did! :) 


For my color scheme I was actually inspired by what I saw on the back of the package the stamps/dies came in and as well as all the projects on the C9 blog, etc. So nice when it works out like that, right?!...I kept things clean and went for an 'off the edge' look and then simply stamped on the 'sending love' sentiment. Easy peasy, right?!...

Well, that's all for me.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day and see you soon!

Treat yourself

Hi y'all! 
Happy Saturday, hope all is well?! :)

I'm just swinging in to share a card I made for a sweet friend of mine. I didn't want to share it until I knew she received it. ;) 


I'm slowly using up some more sets I have sitting around just begging to be used. Can't tell you how long I've had things 'just sitting'. lol I also tried my hand again at using the chalk pastel pencils I have and well, I do really like them, though I still need practice with them. But they're still fun to play with. That's what counts, right?! :) 

Well, that's all for me.
Enjoy your weekend! :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi

Hi y'all! :)

I'm swinging in today to share a card for the current CASology challenge. It's all about 'hello', how fun and simple is that?!...Perfect when your crafty mojo seemed to be gone. ;) 

Like I said, my mojo was a little missing and when I saw the CASology cue card, I knew something had to come to me. Or at least I was hoping it would. lol ;) I pulled out many sets that I haven't used in quite some time. Honestly, I tried using a couple other sets but it just wasn't coming together how I planned. So, I reached for one of my Paper Smooches sets and (yay!) it worked. :) 

I actually pulled out my markers!! lol It has been a looong time since I've used those and I probably need more practice with them, but I thought the result was good?! :) Pretty simple and straight forward. I wanted it to seem as if honey was dripping off the bee and the 'hi'. I colored only the 'hi' afterwards and that was pretty much it. Easy peasy, right?... 

Well, that's all for me today. 

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

The journey is sweeter...

Hi y'all!  

Happy Monday, hope your week is starting off right! :)

I'm just swinging in to share a sweet and simple card I made for the Taylored Expressions, TE Maker Challenge. (#TEMakerChallenge) 

Pretty straight forward, yeah?!...I did some coloring with the image but rather than using colored pencils, I used some 'new to me' chalk pastel pencils. They are certainly different from your regular colored pencils. But I have been playing around with them more and I have to say, they're pretty fun...definitely a learning curve, but fun. :) 

Well, that's all for me today.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week and see you soon! :)

Gorgeous

Hi y'all! 
Happy Friday, hope all is well! :) 

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


Seeing how everyone seems to be 'hot foiling' things, I took the plunge and jumped on board. I gotta say, I'm loving this whole 'hot foil' thing!! It's so fun and simply beautiful! If you haven't tried any hot foiling I definitely recommend it. ;) 

So onto my card...this is what I came up with for 'gold'.


Playing around with things, I thought I'd experiment to see if it would work to hot foil the Stitches Die in gold...and wouldn't you know, it worked! :) I wanted the background to 'shine' so I only added a couple other elements to my card and that was it. Pretty simple, right?!...

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