I hope you feel beautiful today

Hi y'all!
Long time no see, hope all is well?!...

I apologize for my quietness, lately. In all honesty, I have somewhat stayed away from social media and other things. It just seems like my feeds get the most with everything going on in the world and people pointing fingers, etc., rather than all the beautiful creations and stories out there. (Which I understand what is going on, but I just can't worry or stress about all that. Perhaps. I'm one of those 'rare ones' that don't get worked up or panic about things like this?...Who knows.) What happened to enjoying life?...Enjoy each and everyday?...The little things?...Where are all the positive things?...Life is short and while you're here, you might as well enjoy it! :)

And on that note, 'I hope you feel beautiful today'!



Well, this card took me some time to make. lol A little bit ago I ordered Altenew's watercolor brush markers and managed organize them the way I wanted. lol Yeah, organized them and then just stared at them. lol After watching some videos and practicing on different watercolor papers/cardstocks, I finally felt comfortable enough to use them to make a card. Let me just say, I actually think I grasp these brush markers more than the pan watercolors?!...I don't know what it is but they seem to just work for me. (or at least I think so) ;)

*Party Time*
Also, it's my birthday today!! And well, my 'fancy' birthday outing is going to the dentist to get a tooth pulled. lol Fun, right?! lol Since I can't have much of the birthday today, how about I celebrate with you?!!...I haven't done a giveaway in awhile and well, it's time to have one. So, how about a $25.00 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp?!!...Just leave me a comment on this post and you'll be entered. That's it. Simple, right?!... :) *Note: I will leave the giveaway open until 12 pm EST on Sunday. Please make sure I have a email to contact you if you are chosen. I will contact and announce the winner on my blog, as well. Please, please, please, make sure you contact me back! If I don't hear back from you (the winner) in 48 hrs. I will have to pick a new winner. 

Well, that's all for me today.
I'm going to hop around the blogs and check out Instagram for some beautiful creations and inspiration! :)

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

Succulent Hello

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

I'm swinging in to share a simple card I made for the current Paper Smooches Challenge. Which happens to be 'Anything Goes'...fun, right?! :)




Just a succulent stencil and a stamp is all I used for my card. It doesn't get much easier than that, right?!...I started with the stenciling and then after I used a green colored pencil to add a little darker shades (or shading) to each section of the succulent. Once done, a simple 'hello' stamped on using black ink. A simple one layer card, yeah?!...

Well, that's all for me.

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

Crafty friends...

Hey y'all!
Happy Friday!! :)

I sure feel like it's been forever since I've done a blog post that wasn't for a DT post! lol Seriously, what have I been doing?...Guess things have been just that busy. ;)

Anyhow, I'm swinging back in today to share a card I made for the current Gina K. Designs March Monthly Mix Challenge. This challenge is 'new to me' (I know, where have I been?! lol). And I have yet, to put to use the little handful of Gina K. Designs stamps that I have, so what better than using them in a challenge. ;)


March's challenge is all about rainbows and who doesn't love rainbows?!...


Of course, I kept things CAS. ;) I used a couple smaller stamps from a Gina K. Designs stamp set and inked them up in a rainbow of colors. After, I simple stamped on the sentiment using black ink and that's 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! :)
