Hello and welcome! I'm over at Poppystamps today with a fun springlike card. I hope you have a minute or two to stop by!


Thinking of You


A rainy day means a crafty day! After completeing a couple of DT assignments, I made a card for fun. Freshly Made Sketches had the perfect sketch for my jumping off point. Take a look...

When I saw the large rectangle in the sketch, I was determined to dig into my plethora of 6x6 paper pads to make something work! I found a 'not too in your face' lacy paper that worked perfectly with some vellum and PTI's Mix and Mat: Scallop dies. The W&W rose was cut with a coordinating striped paper. A gold embossed sentiment seemed the right fit as did a few bits of gold confetti. I like a pretty thinking of you sentiment. It works for so many different occasions!

Thinking of you and wishing you a good day!


Easter Blessings


Hey there! Sue is hosting CAS week at Just Us Girls. It's also the final week for our March guest designer, Michele Ferguson. I've loved having you with us this month, Michele and I hope to see more of your marvelous cards in our gallery in the future!

I created an Easter card using Sue's 1/3 or less guideline. I started with a little green and blue ink blending. My sweet friend Marcia Hill sent me these Crocus die cuts last year. I colored them with Copics then adhered them to the card before trimming the stems off. I love that the grass shows through the vellum sentiment banner!

We look forward to seeing your card (or cards!) in our gallery!


I'll be linking my card up at Addicted to CAS, they're looking for spring cards!


Happy Spring!


Happy spring! What better way to say goodbye to winter than with a bouquet of flowers! I'll be sending this little bunch over to the Color Hues gallery where my sweet friend, Marcia is looking for blue and turquoise.

I pulled out several Simply Graphic dies to cretae my bouquet. This flower wrap always makes me smile! Cutting it from plaid paper just adds to it's cuteness! Turquoise is a funny color for me. Is it more blue or more green? I used SU's Tempting Turqoise to die cut a couple of those flowers. It's in the name, so I guess I couldn't go wrong! The round scalloped edge blooms were cut from light blue paper with a little Copic coloring added to their centers. A Lawn Fawn cover plate went onto my card base before popping on my spring bouquet and a few rhinestones. 

That's it from me today. Thanks so much for visiting!


Hey There!



Check out this cheerful moodboard Elizabeth has for us at Just Us Girls! The team and our March guest, Michele Ferguson have oodles of inspiration for you!


I pulled a couple of the elements together to create a playful card using a cute little paintbrush from Simply Graphic.

Surgery was performed on the stamp to remove the leafy paint trail coming from the bristles. I colored them with Copics then masked off the four rectangles and colored them to coordinate. Before attaching the paintbrushes, I used a little stick stamp to add the flowers. A simple tiny tag for a small sentiment was all it needed. Kinda cute, huh! 

I did forget to add a little sparkle detail to the 'metal part' of the paintbrushes before photographing. I went back in with a glittery Gelly Roll pen to take care of it!


 We hope you'll join us this week. 

Thanks for taking a peek!
