Ahoy mates!

Well hello there! I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, just lacking in crafty mojo and taking advantage of warm summer days. I've jumped back in head first with two masculine nautical cards for Darnell's Twofer Card Challenge.

First up is a ship in a bottle! I've had both the bottle (Just for Fun) and the ship ('A La Art) forever and love pairing them together.

I used some cute embossed anchors as a backing for the ship on this one. The compass and swirl images are by DeNami Design and the sentiment is PRS.


I'm on the fence about these, but I hope you like them! 
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


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!
