CASual Fridays with Vicki!

Guess what! I'm a Girl Friday for a day...today! My friend Vicki Dutcher (All I Do Is Stamp) sent me the best email back in November asking if I would like to join her as her guest for a fun CASual Fridays post. No hesitation here...heck yeah!! 

The CF team will be doing one on one challenges with their guests, each pair using the same set. I even got to pick our stamp set. I knew immediately I would chose the adorable Tutu set and even bought the coordinating dies to go with them! I am so completely smitten with those little ballerinas. Well, just see for yourself how cute they are!

I knew the first card I made would be for my niece's birthday next month. We've seen her and her big sister dance in their little tutus at many dance recitals. They danced at the same studio from the time they was just wee ones until they graduated from high school. They became student teachers and then teachers there! 

I couldn't stop at just one!
After all, there are three ballerinas in the set.

This one will go to my other dancing niece, now a mommy of three beautiful baby boys! Her birthday isn't until the early fall so I reached for some apricots aqua blues and golden yellows. 

I can't thank Vicki enough for the opportunity to join in this fun. Be sure to stop by her blog for a visit. I know this set will get a lot of use for my nieces and Sweet P too. Oh my goodness, can you picture our little Sweet P in a tutu...melt my heart!!!


Twofer Card Challenge!

Did you hear that Darnell has a new challenge? Yep, she sure does! Her Twofer Card Challenge launched on Wednesday. Congrats sweet friend. I look forward to all of the inspiration that you and your team will provide! 

Feathers...hmmm...what to do, what to do. 

Break out a quartet of beanie wearing tweets and give them a fun feathered background. Yup, that's what I did!

And my twofer...switch up the design using the same image and papers with the addition of a little sheet music. 


 I wanted my cards to be whimsical and fun.
 I think I made it happen! Hope you like them.


Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Celebration!

Hi there! I'm joining the PPP design team as a guest today for a birthday celebration. Happy 4th Birthday Pretty Pink Posh!! You should be arriving here from Liz's blog. The complete hop list is below and all details can be found on the PPP blog. You don't want to miss out on this three day hop!

I fell in love with this hummingbird set the moment I saw it! Aren't they the cutest little little things!! I've used the new Pretty Petunias in the background. The sentiment is the new Hello Friends Script die. Those little hummers are colored with Copics then kissed here and there with WOS.

My companion shaker tag is filled with 4mm & 6mm Lime Sorbet sequins, 4mm & 6mm Aquamarine sequins, 4mm & 6mm Lemon Meringue sequins and Mini Sparkling Clear Flower sequins. The new Love Sentiments stamp set provided my message.

That's it for me today. 
Now head over to Keeway's blog for more inspiration!

CTS #253 ~ Happy BIrthday!

Hey there! I had a little extra time on my hands so I got crafty! I decided on something quick and simple. This week's CAS(E) this Sketch fit the bill.

My supply of birthday cards is low so I put this little number together. Wplus9's Unforgettable set was begging to be used again. A couple of vellum balloons and a sweet little ellie replaced the flowers from the sketch. I added some PPP mini star confetti to the balloons for some zip. Hope it's still CAS enough for the team!

Don't forget about my PPP giveaway. 
You have one more day to comment on this post
Winners will be a announced tomorrow!

Wishing you a delightful day!
