Dressed Up


Hello! Today's card uses another of my favorite's, Penny Black. This time I'm using "Dressed Up". He just say's Dad to me so I went with a Father's Day card. He was colored with my Prismacolor pencils. I dug thru my embossing folders to find one I haven't used in ages. Trying to break out of using only my go to favorites all the time?! That's it for today so glad you stopped by I love reading your comments! Challenges I used are listed below.

Mr & Mrs


Happy Valentine's Day! It's Tuesday so that means it's time for another new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches! Perfect sketch for the day I think?! I went with a wedding card, no stamps were used this time around just some dies. I have had this heart die from Memory Box for ages an have never used it! I paired it with my Mr & Mrs die from Kaisercraft, Love this die an I think they went together well??! Added some silver pearls to go with my silver trimmed ribbon. Think it made a very classy and elegant card. Thanks so much for stopping by! Challenges are listed below and be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has come up with.

Ladybug Love


Hello! The Penny Black and More challenge this month is Favorite Stamp. Well don't know that I could ever pick just one!! So I went with my favorite overall stamps, Penny Black. Then I decided to go with the first one I ever bought, Garden Gossip because I couldn't pick out just one this way either?! I just love all those cute little hedgehogs and of course the kitty ones too. I water colored the image an added some glossy accent to the little ladybug. Since I still had some of that pretty ladybug paper on my table from my PigWit card I went ahead an used it again. Really pleased with how this one turned out. Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check back in tomorrow for the new Tuesday Morning Sketch. Challenges are listed below.

Birthday PigWit


Hello! Today's card uses the Hogs and Kisses PigWit  from the From the Heart progressive challenge that started back up again this month. So glad for Faith's recovery! I used the plain PigWit an added a flower to his hand an made it a birthday card. The large birthday sentiment is unknown? It's a clear stamp I picked up at one of the box stores along the way an never saved the packaging? If I had t guess it maybe a Heidi Swapp stamp? Thanks for visiting the challenges I used are listed below.

Party Pup


Hello!! Today I have a cute little boy birthday card to share with you. I'm using an adorable puppy image from Bugaboo Stamps. I colored it with my copic markers. The papers are from a Studio G $1 pk. I used an Alphabet embossing folder (that I've had forever but never used) thought it went well with the number paper. Hopefully it will bring a smile to some little boys face someday! The challenges I'm entering are listed below. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, it goes by soooo fast!

Favorite Peep


Hello! My husband and I went out to dinner the other night and Hobby Lobby just happened to be across the street. I was able to talk him into going over! I usually save those trips for when I'm by myself so I don't have to rush! ;-)  This adorable little chick stamp just had to come home with me, isn't he cute??! I paper pieced the shell and paired him with this weeks Freshly Made Sketch. Although mine are never as CAS as theirs. I did end up putting the sentiment on a banner. I just didn't have a small one that worked for under the bottom panel, my Easter sentiments are very limited! Guess that means I can shop right?!! LOL Ok that's all for now hopefully I'll be back again tomorrow, enjoy the rest of your weekend! List of challenges are listed below.

Birthday Wishes


Hello!! It's Tuesday so time for another fun sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches! We are still revisiting our favorites from 2016. This week it was Patti's turn. Our sponsor this week is A Day for Daisies an I choose to use Fairy Kitty for my card. Isn't this just the cutest kitten ever??! Soon as I saw it I had to have it!! I have a all white fluff ball just like this one. She is so fluffy that I actually have to take her twice a year to get her groomed aka shaved! She looks like a poodle or lion when she is done. Has a furry mane, tail and feet only! She loves it, becomes almost unbearable to be around afterwards. She just wants you to rub an scratch all over her an she feels soooo soft. I will have to see if I have a good pictures to post/share! Anyway got a little side tracked there! LOL Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the rest of the DT's cards!
