Happy National Pink Day!

Hi Everyone!

Happy National Pink Day!  As most of you know, it's my favorite color.  Love it and all of the different shades it comes in.  Had to share this card with you today, as it's fitting.




I used a digi stamp from Stamp-N-Doodle (Lynne Crosskill's) 'Summer Pippa'Stamp. I printed this one out atl east 4 years ago, and found it while I was organizing.

I used copics to color her in, and used some colored cardstock and patterned paper for the layering.  

"PINK is my signature color."

Thanks for stopping by!

"National Selfie Day"

Hi Everyone!

So happy to be back.  I haven't been actively posting as I've been taking time to organize my crafts.  I unfortunately don't get to spend a lot of time at the craft table, so my time is divided between organizing and crafting.  

Getting organized and pre-planning a bit has helped me out a lot!   I plan out my project before I get to the table.  Once there, it's all about pulling out the right items instead of having to search for them through piles, which I did for a long time.   

I've been organizing my stamps, stencils, and embossing folders, swatches for my copics, zigs, and inks, and trying to find systems that work for my other craft stuff.  Not completely organized, but getting there.  

I created this card last week and was able to post to Instagram yesterday for "National Selfie Day."  I'm waiting for a couple of items to arrive for a small giveaway.  Will post to my Instagram soon, so do stop by!   

Here is my card...



I created the background using distress inks and a stencil from MFT.  The stamped image is from Love Cynthia, and was colored in using copics.  The "love" sentiment die is from MFT.  I topped off the card with Nuvo drops.

Princess Jasmine Card

Hi Everyone!

Here is a card I made using the cute Jasmine stamp from the Sweet Stamp Shop.  I'm really loving this layout and will have to make a few more cards with similar layouts.  

Here is my card...


I created the background using distress inks and a stencil from Heidi Swapp...love this one in particular.  I went over the design with perfect pearls to give it some sparkle.  I used Lawn Fawn Hillside Dies to cut out the front bottom flap of the card.  The stamp is from the Sweet Stamp Shop, and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.

Hi Everyone!

Here is my second post and card for today.  Gift cards from Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks are great "thank you" gifts, so I wanted to make a few "coffee" themed cards using the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for February...love this kit! 

Here is my card...



I used the sketch from Mojo Monday Card Sketch Challenge #489.

"Hello You"

Hi Everyone!

It's my first day back to work, so this is a scheduled post!  I think I'll be scheduling more often, as I'm back to work after maternity leave.   I feel so blessed to have been able to be home with my babies for the last few months.   It's also nice to be able to get back to work and have more adult conversations.  The next week is going to be a long one, but I look forward to getting busy so that the days go by quickly...wish me luck!

I made another card using a "happy girl." 

Here is my card...

I again used both the sketch and color palette from the Your Next Stamp Sketch and Color Challenge #60.
