Coffee #flockstar

Hello! Hello! :)

Time somewhat got away from me for a bit! I've been trying to work on birthday cards for next month, as well as trying to keep up with where these days are going!?! Seriously, the time needs to slow down some. ;) 

Anyhow, I know the Coffee Lover's Spring/Summer Hop is in full swing and I just had to whip something up for it! :) 

How about a coffee #flockstar flamingo?!...I have had quite the few Rabbit Hole Designs caffeinated sets for some time now and well, I felt I should pull one out and use it! I did some simple stenciling for my background using an Altenew stencil and then added some paint splatters. To color my flamingo I used some colored pencils. Then topped things off with a simple #flockstar sentiment. Simple, right?!...

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

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

I'm just swinging in today to share a card I made for the current Taylored Expressions (#TEMakerChallenge) on Facebook. 

As usual, I'm keeping things simple. I pulled out some TE popsicle dies (that I had forgotten about lol) and made a couple chocolate cover vanilla ice cream with sprinkles. Hopefully, you can see the tiny white cardstock behind the 'chocolate' peeking out...I wanted to be as if you really bite into a dipped popsicle/bar. ;) For my 'chocolate' I used some brown cardstock and then did some ink blending with a couple other shades of brown. Then after, I added some sprinkles. To finish things off, some patterned paper, a sentiment, and a touch of twine and clear gems. Fun, yeah?!...

Well, that's all for me today.
Have a great day and see you soon! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

CASology Guest Designer!

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

Today, I'm guest designing at CASology! I won the last challenge and was asked if I'd like to be a guest designer for this challenge and of course, I said yes! Woohoo! :) Thank you to everyone at CASology for having me! :) 

For this challenge it's all about 'luck'. Here's what I came up with...

Yes, things are very simple. ;) I mixed and matched a couple different brands/sets. For my lotus, I stamped the image on vellum and then colored it using colored pencils. I have actually never done that before, but I must say I do love the result. ;) Then I used the matching die with it and a few little foam squares on the back to make it 'pop'. (I had to strategically place the little foam squares so it couldn't be seen through the vellum.) And to top my card off, a bold yet simple sentiment stamped in black ink. Simple, right?!...

Hope to see you at the CASology challenge! :) 

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