Just for you!

I thought everyone might be in the need for something lighthearted and fun today. Sound good? I put this one together for Freshly Made Sketches.

This little fella from Art Gone Wild fits the bill. I fussy cut him, added him to a PPP tag, then to the card base that was decorated with some Pebbles paper. Easy peasy! He's about to pull into the FMS gallery, wanna come too?


Have a good one!


Thank You

It's that time of year for teacher thanks you gifts! I wanted to give a little something to Sweet P's three preschool teachers on her graduation day. They were always full of smiles and big hellos on the days I would pick her up. She would come running to me saying "gramma, gramma!" but was always sure to give each of her teachers a hug goodbye. So cute!

When I saw the tic-tac-toe challenge at The Paper Players, I knew this would fit!

I bought the MFT lip balm die a looooong time ago and had not used it yet. This was the perfect opportunity! I dressed the top of the tall tag die (MFT) up with snippets of ribbon and trims from my stash along with a button. The sentiment was heat embossed with Versa Mark ink and clear embossing powder.

Off it goes to the gallery falling under the diagonal line of flowers, die-cut and embossing. Have a great day!


For our little graduate!

Hey there! As promised, I'm sharing a pre-school graduation gift I put together for our Sweet P. Here ya go...

I created a graduation cap topper for a mason jar! It's made from Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock with a felt tassel. There's a layer of polka dot vellum, some circle die cuts, a felt bloom and a button to jazz it up. Then I personalized the hat band with letters spelling out Sweet P

She'll get her favorite mini M&Ms and a little money to tuck into her piggy bank. She recently saw the Trolls movie, she LOVES music. Says she wants to be a rock and roller!! I was pretty excited when I stumbled upon this Crayola set at the grocery store and I think she will be too!

Thanks so much for stopping by. 
I hope you have a day filled with happiness and blessings!


All the Details

Our new challenge at Inspired By is about {all the details}... yeah, I'm down with that! I LOVE wrapping gifts and making packages look extra special, cards and tags too.

Our little Sweet P is graduating from pre-school on Saturday ~ can you believe it!! Sadly, they won't get to have the traditional ceremony for the kiddos. But they're making the best of it. Each of the little ones has an assigned arrival time. They'll hop out of the car, receive their graduation cap and diploma then have their picture taken. Still a big deal for a five year old!

Gramma had to whip her up a pretty little card!

You didn't think I would let that colorful polka dotty package banner get by me did ya? My eyes also went to the text rosette, the dimensional blooms and even the little safety pin!

I used our sketch this week too!

What's a pre-school graduation without a special gift?
Pop back by tomorrow for a peek! 

Oh yeah, I can't wait to get a peek at your card in our gallery!


Thinking of You

We're starting our Memorial Day weekend off in a soggy rainy manor, how about you? It doesn't feel like Memorial Day weekend though. No picnics or family gatherings, it's sad. But we're healthy and safe and that's certainly something to celebrate. I could use a cheerful little card as a pick me up, you too? I put this one together for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.

This sweet mouse is from Purple Onion Designs. I've colored her with Copics and grounded the image with a PPP die cut border. I thought the whimsical font of the DeNami Design sentiment went well with the image and couldn't resist adding a trio of rhinestones. 

Off to the CTS gallery she goes!
