Time Out #81...Reminder...Happy Birthday




There is still time to play along with our current challenge at Time Out.  Our challenge this time is a Home Sweet Home challenge, and we have this beautiful photo for your inspiration.


I was inspired by all the butterflies in various shades of pink.  I used a Stamplorations Stamp set, generously provided to me for this challenge, called Winged Things.  I stamped an entire card front, then colored and shaded with Copic markers.



Please head over to Time Out to see more inspiration from our Design Team and Guest Designer. Our Guest Designer this week is Michelle, so please stop by her blog to see what she has created for this challenge.  Stamplorations is our sponsor for this challenge.  Details for the prize are on the Time Out Challenge Blog.

This challenge will run another week.  I hope you will take some Time Out of your busy schedule to play along with us.

CASology Week #245: Grow



Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is grow.  Lots of fun ways to approach this word.  I chose to break out some flowers I haven't played with in a while.  My image is pretty simple, but there are three different dimensions on the card, adding interest without too much fuss.





Now it's your turn.  How does GROW inspire you?  I hope you play along this week.  Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the design team.

CASology Week #244: Strong



Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is strong.  I was thinking of how much stronger I have gotten since picking up a few extra strength training classes at the gym, so I went in that direction.





Now it's your turn.  How does STRONG inspire you?  I hope you play along this week.  Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the design team.

Guest Designer....Tag You're It! #69...Never Give Up



Hello and happy Friday.  I am so pleased to be posting today as a Guest Designer at Tag You're It #69. Here is the tag I made for your inspiration.


There is actually a story behind this tag.  Remember the Woman's March in January 2017.  Here is a picture, in case you missed it.


Millions of women marching, many wearing a knitted pink pussy cat hat.  Like this one:



For months now, I have been knitting pink hats, first giving them to family and friends, and then selling them to raise money for refugees.



Of course, I had to package my hats in a cute and creative way.  I rolled them up, put then in a clear cello bag, labeled with a pompom of matching yarn and my tag.


Knitting all these hats has definitely been a stress reducer, as I have found the last 70 or so days to be very stressful.  And, the extra effort to package them in a cute way has definitely been appreciated.

I used a cat stamp from Technique Tuesday and a sentiment from CASual Fridays Hope Ribbon for my sentiment.

I am also entering this tag at Addicted to Stamps and More #236: Anything Goes.

Time Out #80...Reminder...You're a Super Star




There is still time to play along with our current challenge at Time Out.  Our challenge this time is inspired by words:

'When it rains look for rainbows, when it's dark look for stars'


I combined the idea of stars and rainbows on my card.  I used the Dangled Stars die by PTI, cut my stars from white card stock, and used Copic markers to create my rainbow.



I am entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #236: Anything Goes and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Make a Rainbow.




Please head over to Time Out to see more inspiration from our Design Team and Guest Designer. Our Guest Designer this week is Marilyn, so please stop by her blog to see what she has created for this challenge.  Uniko is our sponsor for this challenge.  Details for the prize are on the Time Out Challenge Blog.

This challenge will run another week.  I hope you will take some Time Out of your busy schedule to play along with us.

Happy Birthday and Welcome Baby



Yay--I had some crafty time today.  Here is what I made.....Make it Monday #280 challenge is 'Outside the Box' and I used some new Beautiful Berries Spring stamps as my flowers and a woodgrain background stamp as the "box".



I was inspired by the sketch at The Flower Challenge #7, and am also entering this card at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Happy Birthday and Addicted to Stamps and More #236: Anything Goes.








I was inspired by the sketch at Retro Rubber #59 and used some 4 or 5 year old Stamps from Hero Arts and Paper Smooches on my card.


My colors were inspired by the colors at CAS Colours & Sketches #217 and Less is More #322: 3 Pastels.  I am also linking this up at AAA Cards #87: Shiny Spring, where the colors are spring, and the glossy accents on the eyes are my shiny option.

CASology Week #243: Icing



Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is icing.  I immediately thought of icing on the cake, and pulled out Candles N Confetti from Reverse Confetti to make my cake.  On this card, icing is provided by colored pencils.





Now it's your turn.  How does ICING inspire you?  I hope you play along this week.  Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

Happy Birthday


I am popping in quickly to share a card I made this weekend with some new stamps from PTI.


The challenge at Make it Monday #279 was to curve our sentiments, and while I was not able to follow Ashley's instructions, I was able to curve my sentiment using a different technique.  I used one of the PTI In the Meadow snowdrift dies to create the curve on my card.

I am also entering this card at Just Add Ink #353: Just Add Critters, Color Throwdown #436, Simon Says Monday Things with Wings, and Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes.
