Happy Thursday, peeps! Poppin’ in with a quick card today for three challenges! I guess I have butterflies on the brain, because I used one yesterday as well! I am keeping my fingers crossed that the Butterfly Framelits will truly be available tomorrow! We’ll see!
My challenges today are the Color Throwdown #338:
The Can You Case It #65 clean and simple, two layer challenge:
and the Retro Rubber brad challenge:
I have been neglecting my top stampers in my WeeInklings downline, so I went to work and actually made four of these in a short time:
Technically, I only used one brad, so I hope that counts, but regardless, I had a great time making these and my daughter even said she liked them a lot! I stamped off some Gorgeous Grunge spatters in Lost Lagoon,Old Olive and Sahara Sand and made a Crumb Cake banner as a base for my butterfly, which was diecut from a Backgrounds Lost Lagoon DSP. So my brad wouldn’t show on the inside, I cut off the brad’s legs and used glue dots to adhere them. I also rounded one side of the card with a circle punch. Finally, since all my downline are fabulous, I used this sentiment from Work of Art:
Hope they like it!
I’ve been making graduation announcements and had a spool of gold sequins on my (messy) craft counter. Cassidy just couldn’t help herself; she had to play with them, and they became Rapunzel’s hair:
And yes, her hair is quite long…..all the way to the floor and then some! Here is the prince, climbing up her hair:
I’ll spare you the mushy love scene, but this is what it looked like by the time she was done playing:
What an imagination!!! Enjoy your day!

Happy Wednesday, all! Hope your week is going well! I needed a really fast sympathy card, and the ColourQ challenge colors were perfect:
I also found a new-to-me challenge, the Muse Card Club, and they also have a monochromatic challenge; you can see it here. Michele’s sample is just beautiful in blue, but I wanted to use the softer hue of Blush Blossom for my notecard:
I knew I could use the Basic Gray for the sentiment, but wasn’t sure how to incorporation the black, so I added a simple grosgrain ribbon and stamped the butterfly from Papillon Potpourri in black Stazon ink, colored it with my marker and popped it up:
Clean, lovely, simple! Enjoy your day!

Happy Tuesday, peeps! I have a Christmas card today---haven’t done the Merry Monday challenge for a while, and Nina’s vintage theme was too good to pass up!
I also incorporated Baker’s Twine, Chipboard and Embossing into my card for the Kraft Journal’s Take Your Pick challenge:
and I used the Mojo Monday sketch:
So here we go:
Very little stamping here; I used some scraps of DSP; a chipboard element featuring a 1950s vintage Santa from Bo Bunny:
and some baker’s twine from my stash along with some Tim Holtz stickers atop an embossed panel:
I did stamp a few white snowflakes on the Crumb Cake background and added a glittery swirl just for fun! Hope you enjoy it!
We took a nice little walk on Sunday, enjoying the warmer weather without the wind!
Enjoy your day!

Someone did something really nice for me yesterday and this will be going to that certain someone! I am truly blessed! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Happy Saturday, peeps! A quick card today using the Colour Me…! color challenge (love blue and yellow):
and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:
and a new-to-me set from Clearly Besotted called In Print:
My friend Ellen clued me into this cute set; there are little images to stamp over your fingerprint (or the fingerprint image included in the set) and I thought a little bumblebee would be fun! I diecut some stitched circles with my Lil’Inker dies and mounted them on some digital gingham DSP. I already had Flower Patch sitting on my desk, so I stamped some small flowers on the Marina Mist panel and gave them some centers with my chalk marker:
and the sentiment from Flower Patch fit so well, I used it too! I added a little ruffled ribbon atop an eyelet punched strip, a button, and last, I glittered up my little bee’s wings with Dazzling Diamonds! Enjoy your day!
You never know what Cassidy will show up wearing at the lunch table; it depends on what area of the garage she’s been in with Grampy!
Silly girl! Be sure to stop back tomorrow for the newest Paper Players challenge, too!
