Sundae Funday!

Hi friends! I hope you're enjoying your weekend. I'm popping in today with a card for Freshly Made Sketches. Squeezing this one in at the last minute!

I was looking at paper to use for another card challenge when I came across these strips. October Afternoon for the reds and Basic Grey (I think) for the blue. Hmmm, the perfect size for FMS.  I had one of those light bulb moments and this card was the result! They went onto a vanilla base with a little ric rac. I stamped, Copic colored and die cut this cutie little CC bunny and I was good to go!

Speaking of good to go, this better go to their gallery before I run out of time! Thanks for visiting!


Somebody Loves You ~ Just Us Girls #715


Hello sweet peeps! Our new challenge is up at Just Us Girls. It's time to break out those stencils and have some fun! 

Before we get to my card, I want to give a shout out to our wonderful February guest designer, Denise Morgans. It's been a pleasure having you with us this past month!

I used a heart stencil, then die cut the panel with a PTI postage die. I just love this cutie little bear with his bouquet of flowers! A whimsical floral paper from my stash was the inspiration for my colors. Simple and sweet!

What stencil will you choose to share with us? 

I can't wait to find out!



Hey there! It's my turn to post over at Poppystamps today. I hope you have a minute to head over and check out what I made with these fun products. It's something unexpected!



Our Friendship

Happy President's Day! I'm popping in this morning with a sweet little pair of bears for The Paper Players challenge. CAS and Forever Friends are Ann's required elements this week.


This one is pretty simple. The MFT set was stamped, die cut, Copic colored and attached to a card base that has a few stenciled clouds. And finally, a sprinkling of PPP tiny gold hearts to add to the playfulness. That idea came from a movie we re-watched this weekend. It Could Happen to You with Nicolas Cage and Bridget Fonda. At the end of the movie they release oodles of paper hearts from a hot air balloon!

Okay, off this one flies to the gallery. 

I hope your week has gotten off to a good start!



You Are In My Thoughts

The snow and cold showed up again for our weekend so I snuggled in and made a card or two. This one is for the Color Hues challenge. Stef picked the lovely combination of Lilac and Mint. I never met a lilac I didn't like so I was in!

Now someone correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't this look like lilacs? I used the Ready to Bloom cover die from The Stamp Market. It was smooshed into some ink then the single blooms were layered onto the panel of those that are connected on the die cut. Mint Julep cardstock from PTI was used for the leaves (TSM) and scalloped panel (ME). The lovely debossed panel is by SSS and my sentiment from Pinkfresh

All of those companies played so well together!

I hope you're warm and cozy this weekend. 

A pot of homemade soup is on my agenda for tomorrow!
