Just Us Girls #500!

When I saw that Just Us Girls was celebrating their 500th challenge, I knew I had to join the fun! To be perfectly honest, they had me with the challenge graphic. The theme is circles and that says polka dots to me!!

I started with a scrap of white cardstock that I randomly stamped with circles/polka dots (Hero Arts). I die cut the bottom edge, along with some vellum, using a PPP border die. After adhering these pieces to the card base I added more circle. Aren't these stamps by Rubbermoon sweet! 

Congrats on 5oo challenges Just Us Girls, that's awesome!


PRS ~ Design it Monday!

Hey there! I have a card to share on the Precious Remembrance Shop blog today. It features the School Days stamp set that's just so happens to be on sale!


FMS ~ I Love You!

Are you joining in the fun at Freshly Made Sketches? I am, they're celebrating their 400th sketch ~ SHAZAM!! I got busy putting together this little number.

I've had the cute turtle and PP made into a shaker element for quite some time. They were left over from a 12 Kits of Occasions kit. This was the perfect opportunity to use it. It's filled with the Sweet Pea sequin mix and heart confetti from PPP

I cut a rectangle of polka dot paper, die cut a cute piece of daisy PP and embossed the PPP sentiment in gold. I opted to use a wooden flower instead of a heart. But I did add a trio of teeny golden hearts for those three little dots in the sketch.

I love the way this turned out. 
Hope the FMS team does too!


Where flowers bloom

Hello and welcome! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. I found a little time to put together a card for this week's CAS(E)this Sketch challenge. We have a wedding to attend on Friday so I designed a card for the happy couple.

The sentiment was a leftover snippet from one of my 12 Kit's of Occasions kits. I added a couple of PPP wood roses with golden seed bead centers and a shimmery PPP border die cut for one of the banners. 

Light, airy and summery! Hope you like it!


Why is it that winter lasts forever and summer zooms by at the speed of light? I can't believe it's the last day of July already! But, with that thought in mind, you know it means it's 12 Kits of Occasions time right? Right! 

Marybeth is our hostess this month. Her {Best Summer Ever} kit was full of everything bright, happy and summery. I made three floral cards. There were four, but... well... we won't go there!

I thought my doily embossing folder (Maggie Holmes) went well with this cute mason jar.

Adding the gingham paper to the back of my shaker on an angle seemed like a fun idea. But it sure made getting all of the layers straight a little tricky. I can't tell you how many times I measured and remeasured. My eyes were going bonkers!!

I jumped way out of the box for this one. But you know, I like the way it turned out!

I'm happy you stopped by today. I'm sure my teammates would enjoy your visit too!
