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! :)

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! :)

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

Time just keeps going on by...I've been trying my best to blog/share more and then I tend to get caught up with things at home. (And having some unexpected things happen, probably didn't help.) So while things may be somewhat quiet for now, I'm hoping May will bring flowers. ;) 

Anyhow, on to a card I made. I saw the Uniko Studio Challenge and being I haven't joined in on their challenge for a bit, I decided I should change that. :) 

I pulled out some colored pencils and went for a 'no-line' technique. If I even did that correctly, I do not know?! lol But I had still enjoyed things. :) I did some simple simple heat embossing for the sentiment, which I don't even remember the last time I even pulled out my embossing powders...lol (I really should be using things more.) To add a finishing touch to my card, I used some pearls/gems. Simple and 'springy', yeah?!...

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