Wishing You Sunshine


I've been lucky to have quite a bit of stampy time this weekend!
If the weather wasn't so nice I'd be down here stamping non-stop but it's nice out and the fresh air is awesome!

I just finished this card for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #270.

I used some fun Reverse Confetti Stamps and Dies.

Just A Note


This week is half way through for me and I cannot wait for the weekend!!!
I have a few plans on Saturday morning and then the rest of the weekend is all about stamping!

Last week I created a card for a couple of challenges.
The Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS - Flowers and also Jen's Deconstructed Sketch Celebration #200.
I chose to use an older sketch #35

Yesterday my SU! box of new sneak peek goodies arrived!
I only ordered a few things and am not yet convinced that the newest In Colours are something I'll reach for very often.
Of all the colours I think I like the Cucumber Crush the best. It's bright and fun!
I created this SU! only card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch.

The balloon was created using washi tape from the new Cherry On Top design to match the designer series paper.
The sentiment comes from the Celebrate Today stamp set.

I was so excited to have a few minutes to play along with today's CAS challenge SCS.
Created a thank you card for Chloe.
She spoiled me this past weekend for Mother's Day.
I truly am SO lucky to have her as my daughter.
Here's a shot Brian got of us laughing about something. My eyes are half open but I still love the photo.

Hey! I Miss You Already


I haven't stamped in days but I plan on changing that this week. Trying to get more in a routine. Brian hooked up my tv and digital box by my stamp table so in the evening when he's busy on his computer in the basement, I can be down there with him! Fun!

Here's another card I created using the pretty colour combo from last week's Paper Players Challenge #240 and also Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #264.

Bloom & Grow Mojo393

Ahhhh it's almost the weekend!

I'm off Thursday(but working for a few hours) and then work Friday.
Hitting the highway.....southbound for the weekend! Yeah!

I do hope to be home early enough on Sunday to watch the race and stamp though ;)

It's been a very very long time since I last played along with the Mojo Sketch.
So happy to ink up some pretty Verve stamps again!!!

I used the wonderful Bloom & Grow stamp set from Verve.

Hello :)


Feels like I've been down and out for weeks and it's only been two days of feeling yucky!

Hopefully I'm back to myself soon and can continue organizing my new craft space.

Here is a card I created for two challenges:

I'm in love with these SU! colours and stamps!
I was a little late to the party as these are retiring colours in just a few short months :(
I will be stocking up on all three of these for sure!!!
HereI used the new to me set called Flower Patch and Hi There along with the Flower Fair framelits.

Thanks for stopping by!

Mixed Media Canvas

Happy Thursday!
Or is it? LOL!

This is my late day and for some reason I'm always wide awake at 4:30am. Sure makes for a LONG day!
Plus this is my full weekend to work. Monday seems so far away. While most of you dislike Monday morning, I'll be jumping for joy LOL!

Yesterday Chloe and I got crafty together. Not often does she like to get involved in anything artsy.
She's the reader and writer in our our house.
So when she said she wanted to do something with canvas, I thought, what the heck! Let's do this!

She doesn't want me to show what she's working on but I'll show you what was completed yesterday.
I started with a blank canvas and added a layer of Gesso.
After that dried I added some hexagon shapes with a stencil and modeling paste.
Rubbed some Baked Brown Sugar ink over it and added some swipes of aqua colour paint. Thinking it needed to be muted a bit I rubbed more of the Baked Brown Sugar ink on the entire canvas.
I die cut some MFT flowers and leaves and sponged them. Everything was attached with a glue gun. Afterward I decided to spritz the entire canvas with some pretty Angel Mist. 

Thanks for stopping by!
