every cloud has a silver lining

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

I'm swinging in to share a 'just for fun card', no challenges or anything. ;) I actually put to use some Neat & Tangled sets (anyone else miss Neat & Tangled?), as well as a little hot foiling and coloring. 

This card took me a few days to finish and not just because of my slow coloring. lol But I couldn't figure out a background! I was almost tempted to go to one of the craft stores to see if anything would 'grab' me, but decided with the stuff I have, there had to be something. I went through my scrap pile and came across the heart cut out panel I made and just never used, guess it was meant for this card. ;) Once finding that, things then came pretty easy. Don't you love the foiling for the 'rain'?!...Hopefully you can see all the glimmer of colors?...

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

I think you're amazing

Hi y'all! 

Hope you're enjoying your Sunday! :) I'm taking it easy today and relaxing...maybe even a little crafting. ;) 

I'm swinging in to share a card I made for the current Unity 'show & tell' Facebook challenge. In all honesty, I was actually just in the mood to do some coloring and used a Unity stamp set. After thinking about the challenge because I haven't played in quite some time, to my surprise it was all about florals. If that wasn't good timing I don't know what is! lol ;) 

I did not color this in one day...more like 3! lol I enjoy coloring and I think because it is soothing to me, I tend to just take my sweet ol' time with things. After my coloring was done, I added a mix of splatters in brown watercolors and then stamped on the sentiment. Pretty simple, right?!...

Well, that's all for me today.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your day! :)

Mini slimline

Hi y'all! 
Hope all is well?!...Boy, oh boy, it's been a little while since I've posted anything. lol I thought summer would give me a lot of extra time to craft! While I've had time, it seems to get filled with family and outings. I'm not complaining at all because family time is always good. :) Just my crafty time will have to be a little bit 'here and there', at least until school starts back up for my kids. ;) 

Today, I'm sharing a card I made for the current Taylored Expressions challenge on Facebook (#TEMakerChallenge) and thought I'd share it here too. 

I kept things simple and did some coloring with colored pencils. After, I added a few paint splatters in a deep pink color. To finish things off, I added a 'hello' which I layered a few times in white cardstock and then added a gold glitter cardstock on the final layer. Then a touch of clear drops. Easy, right?!...

Well, that's all for me. 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your week and see you soon! :)
