Hello Love!

Hey there! I'm popping in tonight with a few feathered friends for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch and Twofer Card Challenge. Take a look...

I just love this little hoot from Purple Onion Designs!
He's tucked into a PPP photo frame.

I had so much fun coloring him that I decided to switch it up for a twofer! 
I must say, I do love this blue eyed pair.

Thanks for taking a peek!


CAS(E) this Sketch #338

Hey there! I squeezed in some inky time today to make a card for this week's CAS(E)this Sketch challenge. 

I've used a sweet little nativity and sentiment by Rosie's Roadshow. A little inking provided a warm glow for baby Jesus. There's a very soft flourish (DeNami Designs) in the background too. And finally some PTI holly leaves with rhinestone berries. 

Off this goes to the gallery. Thanks for visiting!


PRS ~ Design It Monday!

Hello! Sorry for my absence lately. We had a busy holiday weekend running here and there. And sadly our sister-in-law's mother passed away, so my brother was in town for a few days. Then there was the grandparent's tea at Sweet P's pre-school. The week ended with my hubby taking a couple of days off. Busy busy but I'm back with a card on the Precious Remembrance Shop blog today. I hope you have a minute to check it out!

Here's my best girl! 

She gave me a tour of her classroom, showed me the class mascot's cage, (Bonk, the rabbit didn't attend the festivities!), read me her favorite book - Grumpy Pants, built a hospital out of wooden blocks (all because the first block she picked up was in fact a hospital sign and that's the way she rolls!!) and took a few trips down the slides on the playground. She didn't want the cookies and lemonade they served. Instead she wanted to have a snack at gramma's house. She requested her favorite cheese stick (actually she ate two of them!) and cucumber sticks (AKA: power sticks because well, you just you never know when your super hero powers might be needed!!) That's my girl!!


Happy Labor Day weekend to all of my US friends! The 12 Kits of Occasions team is celebrating with Michelle's {End of Summer Soiree} kit!  Let's jump right in...

I love this patterned paper to bits!

I didn't want to do too much here. 
This floral die cut is so pretty!

I die cut an opening for the cake with a PPP tag die.

Then made a coordinating tag with the leftovers and some vellum!

I like the elegance the gold adds!

This one is my favorite! I'll save it for our son's next birthday. Did I ever tell you he once wanted to be an Air Force pilot? This mama is so glad he changed his mind! Let's just say that his veterinary clinic is a much safer profession.

I made a coordinating tag to go with it. Isn't the red paper nifty. It's what Michelle had her kit wrapped in.

Thanks for spending a bit of your day with me. 
Enjoy your weekend!


Cherish Every Moment

Hello lovelies! I'm playing along at Freshly Made Sketches where they're celebrating their 400th sketch! 

I hope they don't mind that I used an oval instead of a square. But to me, it worked better with the image I used. I dug into some old Authentique paper for that horizontal panel. Then I die cut (PPP) the opening to frame my sentiment (PRS). It's stamped on vellum. Next came the focal image (IO). And there you have it. My card for their milestone gallery!

 To all of my US friends, have a safe and happy holiday weekend!
