Inspired By #193 ~ Friends "Fall" Together



Hello lovelies! Are you ready for a new Inspired By challenge? I have a Thanksgiving card to share. I was inspired by the big acorn!


My friend and teammie, LeAnne sent me this die cut acorn a long time ago. This seemed like the perfect time to bring it out! I've paired it up with some PTI Sprigs and Sprays, a wee DeNami Design sentiment and a sprinkling of rhinestones. 

There are so many wonderful items in our IB photos this week. What will inspire you?


'Tis the Season!


Hi friends! Did you have a good weekend? Ours was a lazy one. Just the hubs and I. Saturday Mass, take out followed with more laziness and some old movies on Sunday. Sometimes you just have to chill out and do nothing!  So today I got it in gear. Made a pumpkin pie, chicken pot pies and then a card! This one is for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge

I went right down the middle with a sparkly red ornament, embossed and die cut holly. My ornament is Top Dog Dies, remember them? I'm loving this sentiment set from The Greetery. The script font is so pretty! Then of course I had to bring out my favorite PTI Holly Jolly dies. Quick and easy, hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!


Sending you warm winter wishes


What a late afternoon we had yesterday. Phone alarms going off with tornado warnings, tornado sirens blaring from ours and neighboring cities, Sweet P and mommy sheltering in the hallway of the school since they stayed after for mommy to catch up from being out sick the day before! Holy smokes, a nail biter for sure! Happy to report that all is well. No tornado, no damage, just rain and some wind. Needless to say I needed a little happy this morning. Enter the ever sweet Birch from POD!

I had him already stamped and colored, he just needed a place to go. This week's Freshly Made Sketches seemed a good fit. I picked out a playful patterned paper then toned it down a bit with some vellum. I popped Birch into place with a trio of PPP snowflakes and sentiment. Sweet and easy. Hope you like it!

Have a great weekend!


Inspired By #192 ~ Who's Your Boo?



I have a certain little boo that my card for this week's Inspired By will go to. 

Check out what I made for Sweet P!

I was inspired by those pastel buildings. Aren't they fun? After die cutting a PPP story book die, I stamped my images then added background colors with Copics. The storybook panels are popped up with fun foam. They're a little hard to see, maybe if you zoom in, but there are clear embossed bats flying around in the background. Gloomy days make card photography tricky sometimes! 

Okay peeps, it's your turn! You know you can't resist this cute inspiration photo. Lets see how fast we can fill up the IB gallery.  Ready...  set... GO!


Merry Christmas!


The Color Hues challenge is looking for red and kraft, a combination I happen to love! Some ancient Jillibean Soup scraps were just what I needed to bring this card to life.

Be still my polka dot loving heart! With careful placement, I had just enough paper for a gorgeous big Altenew poinsettia and a partial little one. Some coordinating striped paper helped to pull the brick red, kraft and white together. My Magenta sentiment was stamped in white then clear embossed. A good sprinkling of PPP Marshmallow confetti finished things off. 

Hope your day is a beautiful one! Thanks for visiting!
