Do all things with love

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

Things are pretty good here. Just soaking up some sun and getting some crafty time in here and there. ;)

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




I kept things simple and sadly no matter how many times I took photos and edited things, I couldn't get the dry embossing to show up. :( So it just looks like a solid white background, though there is indeed some blooms the spread over most of the background...sigh...

At least for the most part, you can see (hopefully) what I was going for?...I layered the floral circle die cut a few times, to make it pop out some from the background. Then did some coloring with the hummingbird and then used the matching die with it and added it to my circle/card. And lastly, added a little sentiment and some jewels. Pretty simple, right?!...

Well, that's all for me today. I'm off to do some blog visits/commenting. :)

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

Real friends always share cupcakes

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

Things are going okay here. Trying to soak up the last little bit of Summer before my kids start school again. They start back up in August and we all know how fast time goes, so we got to enjoy it, yeah?! ;)

Anyhow, I'm swinging in to share a fun card...no challenges or anything, I just wanted to practice some coloring with markers.


Again, I'm no expert with my coloring skills. But I sure do have fun and enjoy it...that's what it's all about though, right?! ;) I did a little masking with the cupcakes, the image is nice and big, so lot's of playing around you can do with things.

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

Altenew-June2019-Inspiration

I'm swinging in to share a card I made for the current Altenew June Inspiration Challenge...at the last minute! lol I still have some hours to spare, but talk about cutting it close! I actually wanted to play along from the start but just couldn't get anything to come to me. Until today, that is. ;)


Keeping things simple, I did some stamping on kraft paper and then added a little bit of shading using some colored pencils. I know you may not be able to see much of the red and yellow pencil, but it's there...I promise. ;) I kept everything one layer and actually made two of these cards. So perfect for mailing. That's always a bonus, right?!... ;)

Well, that's all for me today.

Hibiscus hello

Hey y'all!
Happy Friday! :)

*For my AJVD post, please scroll down. ;)

Once again, time has gotten the best of me...with it being summertime and all the other family matters going on it continues to be a roller coaster. And I had a strange experience today. While I was driving, I happened to look down at my phone that was sitting in a little tray, that sits somewhat under the radio. I noticed a little tiny feather on it. Like it just flew in and landed there. I didn't touch my phone and just let it be. When I got home the feather was still there, so I picked up my phone carefully and was going to show it to my husband. Now I saw it on my phone up until my husband opened the door, then suddenly looked down and gone! We looked everywhere for it and nothing. Perhaps it was only meant for me?...Maybe something from my dad?...I don't know but very strange. There's was no feather even in our car to begin with and for something to fly through the windows, I would have noticed that. And for it to be perfectly sitting on my phone for where I had it at...it was something else, I tell you.

Anyhow, just thought I'd share that.
So now onto my card...


I originally was planning on doing some no-line watercoloring. Though, that was just not working for me. So while I was sitting there trying to watercolor, it came to me 'why not do no-line coloring with pencils?'. Being that was calling my name, I switched gears and pulled out my pencils. I still had no idea how that was gonna go, but went with it and stuck with it. I actually enjoyed things so much, I'm planning on doing another card (or so), doing the same thing. ;) I'm no expert at all, but I had fun and it was relaxing at the same time. Please excuse my 'shading' techniques if they are off/not in the right spots...I was just going with the flow. ;)

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