Sweet P!

Our beautiful little Sweet P has her first tooth!! 
Can't believe this munchkin is already six months old.
She's got a bit of a cold right now, poor baby. 
It doesn't slow her down though, just a precious as ever!!

Have a blessed day friends ~Lisa


News to Share!

Hi friends, I have some happy news I've been waiting to share! I've been invited to be a guest designer alongside the talented design team at the Paper Players! For the next six months I'll be joining the team in bringing you some inspiration for the weekly challenges! I'm so grateful for this opportunity and look forward to my first challenge with them in June!

I couldn't share this happy news without sharing a card! Their current challenge is from Jaydee. It's a CAS "Girly Thanks."

This little sweetie pie by Stamping Bella fits the bill! The DP is from a 6x6 pad I picked up at Tuesday Morning a few months ago for $2.99!! This pretty die cut border (Stitched Borders 3) is one of the newest from PPP.  And finally I added a few Strawberry Burst Sequins for just a little pizazz!

Thanks so much for visiting! ~Lisa


cQc #292 ~ Thanks a Bunch!

Hiya! Ready for a new palette from ColourQ? This one is bright and fresh, so perfect for a pretty little floral card. Little as in 4" x 4"!

And what better flowers than polka dot ones! I wish I had a garden full of them ~ wouldn't that be dandy!! These, along with the sentiment, are all from the Reverse Confetti set called Petals 'n Posies. I added a sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow Sequins (4mm & 6mm) for a bit of zip. Super cute, I like the way it turned out!

Please remember to stop by the cQc blog to see what my amazingly talented teammates have to share. We would love to see your card in the gallery this week! Be Blessed ~Lisa


FMS #186

Hi there crafty peeps! Are you having a good weekend? Today has been a quiet day for us. The sky has perked up, so I think we'll grill some burgers a little later ~ yum! I carved out some crafty time and put together a quick card using the latest Freshly Made Sketches challenge for my inspiration.

I didn't stamp a thing here, being a tad lazy I suppose!! But I did use some pretty elements to pull this card off. I thought this paper (Simple Stories) and the embossing folder paired well together. I die cut the tiny post card piece with a PPP Stitched Tags die. Two strips of the DP were cut with a PPP Stitched Borders 2 die. The jury is still out for me on the butterfly wings (PTI) I added to the tag. Maybe it's the positioning of them, could have been a bit higher I think. But it's still a fun look. And finally, to finish things off, I added some 4mm & 6mm Metallic Gold Sequins from PPP.

I think that does it for me today. 
I'm off to pick up some buns for those burgers! ~Lisa

My first card features the Stitched Banner Duo 2 dies, Stitched Borders 3 dies, 6mm Strawberry Burst Sequins & 4mm Metallic Gold Sequins. My stamped images are from Precious Remembrance Shop. The blooms are embossed then water colored. I added some pretty Chevron Twill Ribbon to finish things off.

This one highlights the new Enchanted Garden Embellishment Kit!

When I saw this pretty kit, lilacs came to mind immediately! I created a little shaker using one of the Stitched Labels dies. It's filled with the flower sequins & 4mm sequins from the kit. I added a few of the flower sequins to the stamped Lilac (IO) image as well. I love this new Stitched Borders 3 die. Doesn't it look pretty in polka dots! To highlight the silver sequins a bit more, I embossed my Precious Remembrance Shop sentiment with Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

That's a wrap from me today friends. Your next stop is new DT member Yuki!! Enjoy the hop and have a great day ~Lisa



cQc #291 ~ Sorry to Hear...

Tuesday greetings! I'm here today to greet you with a new palette from ColourQ! This one is bright and fun with a super nifty inspiration photo. I went with the colors alone today. Didn't have a chicken, so I used a frog. No connection there whatsoever LOL!!!

Anyway, this little fella (Art Gone Wild) is super fun and always gives me a smile when I ink him up. I colored him in with colored pencils. Touches of glossy accents on the puddle and his froggy eyes. This sentiment (PSX) pairs well with him, don'tcha think!

Now come on and get inky with us. We would love to see your card in our gallery! Hop on over to the cQc blog to check out the amazing variety from the team. Have a splendid day ~Lisa
