Happy Friday, peeps! The last few days have allowed me very little stamping (or computer) time, but I did squeak in a card for the Make it Monday challenge from the Kraft Journal which was “Anything Goes Winter” as well as the “house” challenge from Merry Monday:
I still have some Crumb Cake note-sized envelopes in my stash, so I made a really simple card using Lost Lagoon and Whisper White cardstock on a Crumb Cake notecard, die-cutting my houses with the Memory Box Country Landscape die:
I stamped a sentiment from the retired SU set called To You and Yours on a diecut banner from the Circle Card Thinlet and added some sequins and snowflakes:
I kept it simple….didn’t even add any glitter!!! Thanks for visiting!
We had a wee bit of snow yesterday and Cassidy insisted on going outside to make snow angels. I told her there wasn’t enough snow, but she proved me wrong! She made them at the top of the driveway:
Halfway down the driveway:
And on her tummy!
She even drew a head on each one (with eyes!).
Enjoy your day!

Happy Wednesday, peeps! Just a quick card today…I am in the throes of a sinus thing, feeling a wee bit washed out! The colors from the ColourQ challenge cheered me up…this inspiration photo cracked me up, actually:
and I paired it with the sketch from Technostamper:
to make a little thank-you card for a customer:
I have a 4 1/4” square card base in Crumb Cake on which I stamped the Dictionary stamp in Sahara Sand; the image is from the SAB set Lotus Blossom, stamped in Strawberry Slush and Rose Red and mounted on some SS DSP and the Best Year Ever DSP from the SAB catalog. I just love the vintage vs. fresh look! My sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, and I stamped a little background from A Fitting Occasion and used the Itty Bitty Framelits to cut it out:
My Chocolate Chip scallop is from the Circle Card Thinlits…that little set comes in handy, there are lots of cool dies in there!
Doing some artwork with watercolors and crayons!
She was quite intent on it, too! Enjoy your day!

Happy Monday, everyone! We had a soggy weekend here in PA, and I got to do a wee bit of creating! Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card, and I had some scraps already on my desk, so I searched for a challenge to get me started and found the As You See It challenge for this week:
Yikes! But I was up for the challenge, and here is my card:
I had the embossed hearts already done but didn’t use it for the original intent, so I made a tag from it, grunged it up a bit and popped it up on the front; I did some stamping on my background DSP (a misc. piece from My Mind’s Eye, as are the others) with the Everything Eleanor set, then made a banner with the sentiment from Thoughts and Prayers:
I used shades of Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Soft Sky for my background stamping, and Basic Gray for the sentiment….I guess technically that’s four colors, hope they don’t throw me out! I also colored some rhinestones black and placed a few strategically around the card.
Thanks for visiting today!
Lining up the letters and numbers….in her Santa jammies!

Happy Friday, everyone! Today is our 16th anniversary, so I made John a card using SU’s new Moon Lake and the spotlight technique:
First, I diecut and embossed the edge of my Crumb Cake card, then stamped the image in Crumb Cake ink, along with some Gorgeous Grunge. Then I stamped the image again on Whisper White cardstock in Stazon ink and watercolored it. I punched it out with the 1 3/4” circle punch and aligned it over the first image:
This reminds me of our little dinghy; we use it to get out to our sailboat when it is on its mooring….unfortunately, we didn’t sail at all last year, so it’s actually sitting in our backyard, LOL! I added a little banner sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, along with some Linen thread for an accent, then I adhered a cool piece of matching DSP from the Adventure Bound pack on the inside and added a sweet little sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts:
I didn’t write all my lovey-dovey stuff on it yet, saving you the embarrassment! But I am entering this in the Kraft Journal challenge 206 this week:
I actually got everything except the ribbon, glitter and snowman!! Cool challenge! I also used the sketch from Mary Jo’s Technostamper Monday Lunchtime sketch:
Thanks for visiting today….we will be going out to dinner later tonight, something I am looking forward to VERY much!
I am looking forward to spring, so we can take these things OUTSIDE!!!
