Super cute! Thanks for coming by and taking a look!!

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge


MFTWSC543: Time to play in the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge and this one is a nice one! I love how easy it is but how you can still interpret it however you'd like! I found a card by the awesome Lucy Abrims from Lucy's Cards HERE and I just had to copy it. I don't know if her sequin is really big or she used a small paper pad and not the 12x12 size I did, but I just love how it looks and I wanted to do the same to add some bling! Mine doesn't look half as good, but I think card turned out nice enough to post on the sketch challenge. Thank you so much for coming to take a look!

Patterned paper: Echo Park 'Welcome Baby Girl' 
Yay paper: from Michael's Recollections 'Memory Explosion Box' paper pad
Die: MFT 'Perfect-Fit Balloon'

Shaped and Die Card Challenge


Shaped cards and using dies: I have been MIA lately because I have had a hard time being able to scrapbook because of my 18 month old daughter. She doesn't have much patience when it comes to me being in my scrapbook room and crafting. I have tried everything including snacks, special toys and even a TV to watch Bubble Guppies. No luck. 

For this card I used a rainbow die I've had stored away and made a simple card. I am going to enter it into the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge whey they would like you to use dies and also I'm playing along on a new challenge site called A Blog Named Hero. I don't have too many Hero Arts stamps but I'm slowly growing my collection. Thank you for stopping by and taking a look!

Simon Says & Daily Marker Challenges: Sending Hugs

Simon Says and The Daily Marker Challenge: I've been playing in the 10 Day Coloring Challenge by and I've been having a great time making some cards that try to make me use new ideas, stretching my stash , and trying new color combinations. For todays card I'm playing in the Simon Says: Sending Hugs Challenge. I tried using Copic Markers which I'm still very much learning and trying to blend. I only have a few but I'm slooooowly growing my stash. I have the full collection of Caliart markers and I like how they blend; not as nice as Copic of course, but still a great starter marker set. 

For today's card I'm using an old My Favorite Things stamp and die set that has adorable bees! I added some Stickles to the wings and made a scene with a older die I had. I colored the girl with Copic and I think I did an ok job lol. Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look!

Simon Says and Lawn Fawn #98 Challenge


Simon Says Layers and Lawn Fawn Spring challenges: Today I'll be playing in two challenges; one with layers and the next with spring! I am obsessed with rainbows right now and I just love making cards with them. For the Simon Says Challenge, you need to use layers and the Lawn Fawn Challenge is all about spring! Nothing says spring like rain -- which brings rainbows! 

For the words, I used some older dies from Simon Says and used the negatives to spell out 'smile' and positioned it every little bit so that when I spin the card you'll see different rainbow colors of the word 'smile'! I am in LOVE with Concord and 9th's rainbow dies and sentiments so I have been having lots of fun with making cards with them. Thank you so much for coming and looking at my cards and blog!!

Patterned paper: Hello Sunshine Remix paper pad by Lawn Fawn, white dot paper by Doodlebug

Dies: spinner die by Lawn Fawn, rainbow die by My Favorite Things, cloud die by C&9th, smile die by Simon Says Stamp

Simon Says and Lawn Fawn Challenge #94

What's the Weather? and Whatever the Weather Challenge: Wow! It has been a very long time since I've been on this blog - YEARS - and a long time since I've made any cards. Sometimes, life just get's in the way and that's what happened to me! I've had babies, moved, and just lived life. I've been trying to get back into scrapbooking and making cards - especially since I had another baby and I would love to scrapbook some pages for her like I did for my first one. 

For this first blog post, I am joining the Lawn Fawn Weather Challenge and also the Simon Says Monday Challenge called Whatever the Weather.  I got an instant idea when I aw this challenge and I think the card turned out better then what I had in mind. I am NOT good and guessing what the colors mean except that blue is cold and red hot. I just got it off the internet so forgive me if the map isn't right lol. I think the smiles the stamps have make it really fun and I just love how it turned out! I wrote the message in the speech bubble. Thank you so very much for viewing my card and blog! More cards to come!!

Simon Says: Recycle


Simon Says Challenge: I am excited about this Recycle Challenge because awhile ago I made a Reduce, Reuse and Recycle card and I never could figure out how to use it or to give it to anyone. So I'm at least glad I get to finally show it off lol. I have no idea where I got the 'reuse' metal word so I'm sorry that I can't tell you. But it was just perfect for this challenge! Maybe I'll send it to some one for Earth Day. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Simon Says: A Bit O' Green

Simon Says Challenge: This card isn't very St. Patrick's Day-ish but the rainbow is a great representation of it I think! I have always loved rainbow cards and always wanted some dies and stamps but just until recently I've never had any - just always saved the cards because I loved them so much! But when I saw Concord & 9th, My Favorite Things and Tailored Expressions had come out with some rainbows and awesome dies, I just had to finally get them! 
So, here is my card with a splash of green. I don't know where I got the little flower brad but I thought with the rain - it was a good idea to have it on there to show that "April showers bring May flowers". Thank you so much for stopping by and looking at my card!

Stamps: Concord & 9th 'Brighter Days' stamps
Dies: Concord & 9th 'Brighter Days' dies
Ink: Heidi Swapp Archival Dye in Mint & Navy
