PRS ~ Design it Monday!

Hello and a happy Monday to all! I'm up on the Precious Remembrance Shop blog today. I hope you have a minute or two to stop by and say hi.

Have a great day!



Hey there! I have a cute little card to share that I made for The Paper Players challenge. They're asking for summer sports cards. I think this little fella works, how about you?

Isn't he adorable? I picked him up at Hobby Lobby eons ago. It's a tiny Prima set containing him and his tackle box. He's colored with Copics, die cut with an old Spellbinders postage set and popped up with fun foam. 

The more I looked at my card, the more I saw this week's Freshly Made Sketches sketch. With the focal panel popped up, the plaid border reminded me of the outer framing lines of the sketch. Especially the corners. Am I crazy or do you see it too??!!

Thanks for taking a peek!


Thinking of you

Well hello, I'm so happy you stopped by today! With all of the pre-holiday, holiday and post holiday hullabaloo behind us, I finally found some time to get inky. Today's creation is for the Tag You're It challenge, hope you like it!

I've gone with lots of old school here. The raspberries are one of my first woodblock stamps by PSX, aren't they pretty! My hubby, son and granddaughter LOVE their fresh raspberries! 

Another oldie but goodie is the woodblock sentiment (also one of my first) by Savvy Stamps.  I used to use pearls on my cards quite often when I first started card making. Then all of those fabulous rhinestones, sequins, dew drops and gems came out and my pearls seemed to go to the bottom of the pile. But they seemed a good fit here, so I dug them out!

Have a great day!


So long June, hello 12 Kits of Occasions! 

We had a very wet June in our neck of the woods, so I don't mind bidding it farewell. I'm hoping the rest of our summer is full of fun just like Birgit's fabulous {Summer Fun!} kit! Let's jump right in, shall we...

I colored this lovely image with Copics, fussy cut it then added it to my PTI die cut tag. The tag is popped up with fun foam.

This little fella chiilin' out just makes me smile!

I filled my shaker to the max with a mix of PPP sequins.

Goodness gracious is this little one ever adorable! She has Sweet P toes! She's known to move and flick her little toes about when she's playing. It's so cute!

To me, this card says summer fun!

Thanks for spending a bit of your day with me. I'm off to see what my teammates have done with Birgit's kit, why don't you join me!


Happiness Blooms From Within

Hi there! We've had a lot of dreary rainy days this month, so I was in the mood for something bright and happy. This week's CAS(E) this Sketch helped me out.

What's happier than hummingbirds whizzing about! This little pair is from Pretty Pink Posh. I've added them to some lovely hydrangeas by DeNami Designs. I like the way the thick black lines look with the colors I've chosen. H0w about you?

Now if only I had this very scene in my backyard!

 Thanks for visiting.
