Happy birthday

Hello, hello! 
Happy Friday-yay! Hope all is well?! :)

I'm swinging in today to share a birthday card with you. No challenges or design team work, just fun and honestly, I did need a 'fancy' birthday card. ;) Without further ado, here is my card...


This card may look difficult to make but believe me, it was sooo easy. Once again, I went with using some layering stencils (that's where the easy part comes in). I choose to do some blues, then light browns and after a splatter of dark blue paint. Since I've been seeing a number of 'postage' dies circulating around blogs/social media, I thought one (the only set I have lol) would work nicely to showcase the blooms. To finish things off for my card, a simple 'happy birthday' sentiment and a touch of gold pearls (that's the fancy part lol). So there you have it, a fancy birthday card?!... :) 


Well, that's all for me,
Thank you so much for stopping by! 
Have a wonderful day and see you soon!

Cookies (and you)...

Hi y'all! 
Happy Monday, hope your week is starting off right?! :)

I'm swinging in to share a card for the current My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge. 



Here is my card...


As usual, nice and simple. Aren't those little kitty cats cute?!...I did some coloring with Copic markers and then used the matching die with the images. After, a little quick stenciling for the background and a sentiment. Lastly, a touch of pearls. Sweet, right?!...

That's all for me. Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day and week!!

Hi y'all! 
Happy Monday, evening! I'm swinging in late tonight (about 10:15 pm) to share a card I made for the current My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge


Without further ado, here is my card...


I had so much fun coloring those cupcakes! I kept things simple and made the cupcakes the focus point because who doesn't love cupcakes?! ;)

Thanks for being there...

Hi y'all! 
Happy Saturday, hope you're enjoying the weekend?! :)

I'm swinging in to share a card I made for the current My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge.  I've been wanting to play along with the MFT Sketch Challenges for a bit but just kept missing the deadline. So when I saw the challenge this time I made sure to get something whipped up without missing the deadline! (lol)  ;) 



Nice and simple. I used a stencil for the background and then some coloring with Copic markers and die cutting. After, I stamped on a sentiment to the card and then added on the little kitty and fish bowl. Cute, right?!...


That's all for me. 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day and enjoy your weekend! 

MFT supplies used: BB Cool Cat stamp set, BB Cool Cat die set, Herringbone stencil.

Aloha

Hi y'all! 
Happy Wednesday, hope your week is going well?! :)

I'm swinging in today to share a 'just for fun' card. I know I've been a little quiet lately but I'm trying to find somewhat of a crafty schedule. My daughter works now, so I've been running her to and from work and with the mix of everything else it can be a little tricky at times. ;) 

Anyhow, without further ado, here is my card...


Aloha! I'm using up some 'new to me' goodies in my bin of new/never been used (never ending lol). I chose some blue plumeria and used a stencil to add some gold glitter in the background. Then topped things off with 'aloha' and some pink enamel dots. It may not look simple but it's a pretty simple card, especially when you have a stamp/stencil/die set. ;) 


Well, that's all of me.
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers and Pixi Dust Designs!

Hi y'all! 
Hope all is well?! :)


Today, I'm swinging in with a fun post! As part of the Coffee Loving Cardmakers design team, we are joining Pixi Dust Designs to share their new release!! Fun, right?!...Thank you so much Pixi Dust Designs for having us! So, without further ado, here is my card...or should I say, cards! 


I started with stamping several images and coloring them with Copic markers. Then used the matching die cuts with the images. Simple, right?!...I stamped on a sentiment to my cardstock base, added some of the die cut images and then topped things off with a touch of 'dots' using a black pen. Easy peasy, right?!...


Now, I had leftover colored die cut images and what else to do but make another card! 


Being I already had things pretty much done, this card went fairly quick. I used a couple pieces of scraps I had to layer for a background, then added the images. To finish things off, I stamped on a sentiment and then again, a touch of 'dots' using a black pen. Simple, right?!...


Well, that's all for me.

CCCC 27-Reminder

Hi y'all!
Hope all is well?! :)


I'm swinging in today to share another card with you for the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge

Without further ado, here is my card...


How about a coffee Christmas tree?!...I wasn't sure what I was making, but after coloring up all the cups I stamped a Christmas tree came to mind. After that, it was thinking about the background and sentiment. I used a die for the background and then stamped on a sentiment to white cardstock and just did some cutting to make it fit like the trunk of the tree. To finish things off, a burlap bow for a topper. Simple, right?!...

Just wanted to say...

Hi y'all! 

Happy Sunday, hope you're enjoying your day?! :)

I'm stopping in to share a card I made for Amy's Woodblock Wednesday feature. I'm so happy to play again with my woodblock stamps! I missed the last couple features but had some extra time and was able to whip something up. :)  

Without further ado, here is my card...

I tried some simple no line coloring and then topped things off with a hot foiled sentiment. Really, that's it. Doesn't get more simple than that, right?! ;) 

Well, that's all for me.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

CCCC Guest Designer

 Hi y'all! 

Hope all is well?!...Happy March! 

Today, I'm guesting on the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge blog! :) For this challenge it's all about the color green. Without further ado, here is my card...

I know my card may not scream Christmas to some but hear me out. (lol) How about for those that live in the desert?...I have never lived in the desert, but I do live in the tropics/sub tropics and we do palm trees/flamingos/sand castles/etc. for Christmas. So I was thinking along those lines, cactus for Christmas... :) 

I kept things simple, did some coloring with Copic markers and then die cutting. I did a little faded stencil background and then added a stamped Merry Christmas. To top things off, I added some gold 'ornaments' to the cactus. Simple, right?!...

Life is beautiful

Hi y'all! 
Happy Monday, hope your week is starting off right?! :)

I'm swinging in today to share a 'just for fun' card. No challenges, no DT work, just fun. I pulled out some older Waffle Flower Crafts goodies and just went with the flow of things. :) 


I'm pretty sure the last time I ever used those turtles was years ago. I'm so good at using things one time and putting them away. I should at least try to use things more than once...guess that'll be a goal of mine. ;) I thought I might make a shaker card, but then decided on just having things framed, which I think worked quite well?...Aren't those turtles the cutest?!...


Well, that's all for me today.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!

Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge-Guest Designer

Hi y'all! 
Happy New Year!! :) 



I'm starting the New Year off with guesting over at the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge! :) Without further ado, here is my card...


Featuring some A Jillian Vance Design goodies, I used some fun cups and a big snowflake for my card. I did a little ink blending at the bottom of the cups to add a little more depth and 'pop' to them. I also added a touch of 'snowflakes' with a white paint pen and then topped things off with 'Merry Christmas'. Easy peasy, right?!...
