PRS ~ Design It Monday

Hey there! I'm up on the Precious Remembrance Shop blog today with a Design It Monday Valentine project. I would love for you to stop by and let me know what you think!


TCC106 ~ Love

Hi friends! Popping in for a quick minute to share my card for The Card Concept challenge. Their pretty inspiration photo caught my eye a couple of days ago and this is what I came up with.

I think this falls under their clean and layered category.

I was inspired by the pink flowers, gold flatware and the little bows on the fortune cookies. See that sweet polka dot napkin under the plate? Brace yourselves, I swapped it out for some heart PP ~ gasp!! 

Thanks for taking a peek. Have a wonderful weekend!


Sending a Hug

Well hello there, long time no see! I've been a little under the weather since Christmas and have't had the mojo to craft. But I'm finally getting back into the swing of things. And hey...guess what!! I'm guesting with the fabulous design team at Fusion today! Yep, that's right, my long time blogging friend Jen Mitchell (I create) sent me an invitation to join her for their anniversary celebration! I decided to jump into the challenge with both feet and fuse the sketch with the inspiration photo. 

When I saw the colors on the beautiful butterflies in the inspiration photo, I remembered this patterned paper (MME) I had. I used one of my favorite PPP dies to cut them out. If you look closely, you'll find a trio of vellum butterflies fluttering about too. And hey Michele, buttons...just for you!
Thanks ever so much for inviting me to join in the fun sweet Jen. Happy Anniversary Fusion!


Happy New Year's Eve! The girls at The 12 Kits of Occasions are starting the party early today with our final kit of 2018. Michelle is our hostess this month and she's delivered us an amazing kit full of prettiness and sparkle! Brace yourselves for what the team has created with her {Periwinkle Party} goodies!

This is a bittersweet post as we're saying goodbye to our sweet friends Michele and Jessica. Our little group is like a family, it pulls at our heartstrings when anyone leaves the team. We're going to miss them more than they know, but we understand that life is ever changing. We love you ladies and, of course, will continue to stalk your blogs!

Never fear though as today we're welcoming a new team member to our 12 Kits family, the fabulous Marcia Hill


Let's get this party stared!

I added a polka dot embossed panel for a CAS look here.

An embossed panel (gifted to me from sweet Michele!) provided the perfect elegant backdrop for this one.

More dry embossing on this sentiment tag.

I couldn't resist adding more polka dots behind my PTI die cuts.

I suppose you can tell I enjoyed the sparkling gemstones from this kit. They made their way onto almost all of the cards!

And finally, how about a shaker to ring in the new year! 

Thanks so much for spending a bit of your day with me. I'm grateful for your visits. I wish each and every one of you a Happy New Year filled with many blessings!


2018 favorites

Hi friends! As I've done in the past, I thought I would share my favorite cards from the past year. I've picked one from each month. There were fewer cards to sort through. Our renovation this spring and early summer took a big chunk out of my crafting time. Hopefully 2019 will bring with it a little more time for card making! 

 January ~ new products from PPP.

February ~ polka dots and pretty little hearts.

March ~ cards for lil' Sweet P to give mommy & daddy.

April ~ love everything about this one. 
The feather paper, chickadee, sentiment font and those tiny IO flowers!

May ~ PRS sweetness! 

June ~ leftover items from 12 Kits of Occasions {My Little Chickadee} 

July ~ gotta love PTI's Meadow Greens.

August ~ this one is not only my favorite from August, but my favorite of the year!

September ~ I do have a fondness for PRS's Fall Colors set.

October ~ a 12 Kits card created for Sweet P.

December ~ a different color choice for Christmas, but I love it!

Thanks for sticking with me for this extra long post. 
I'll be back tomorrow with our final 12 Kits of Occasions post of 2018.
