I'm Back, Pictures, and A Sale!


Hello!  Well we are back from our vacation and we had a WONDERFUL time!  It is so gorgeous up there and we did lots of hiking to the most beautiful destinations like this amazing waterfall~LOVE!!!  I have posted lots of pictures on my Facebook Page, so if you are interested you can go take a look!  If you are not my friend, just send me a request and let me know you are a card making buddy:) 

I've been busy trying to catch up since we got home on Sunday night, and one of the things I've been doing is making some projects for one of my favorite companies that I'm Guest Designing for in July!  I'm so excited and I'll be able to share my first project on Friday!  Any guesses as to who it might be for???

Finally, Your Next Stamp is having a 3 day sale in honor of the end of the Canadian postal strike~YAY!  Everything is on sale and there is no code required, so head over to the YNS Store and grab a bargain!  Sale ends Friday July 1st:)

I'm off to work on a few more projects, then hopefully I'll be able to sit down and relax and visit all of your beautiful blogs!  I've missed you guys!  Thanks for stopping by:)

Happy Father's Day!


Hello!  Well today we will be arriving at our cabin in Tennessee:)  We are meeting my Mother in Law (whom I adore) and her husband to spend the week with them!  I knew I had to have a card for my Step Father in Law, and since they are such huge outdoors kind of people, I thought this adorable Moose from Whipper Snapper Designs would be perfect!  I used this week's sketch from Splitcoaststampers for my layout and some dp from the October Afternoon Campfire paper pad. 

I hope you have a wonderful day with those special fathers in your life!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

PaperWorks Co. Recipe Challenge Friday!

EEK!  I'm running late today!  I have been running around this morning trying to get ready for our vacation.  We are leaving tomorrow to spend a week in Gatlinburg Tennessee~YAY!  My hubby and I miss the mountains so much, and we both just love hiking (especially when I know there is a waterfall at the other end:)  Hopefully I'll have some pretty pictures to share when we get back! 

We have a new Friday theme at PaperWorks Co. this term ~Recipe Challenges!  For our first challenge we are actually combining two:

1)All White Card with Colored Image
2)Photo Inspiration



Don't you just love this room?!  I do!  Here's what I came up with:


I used this adorable image from the Rachelle Anne Miller Collection called Day at the Beach.  I colored it with my Copics, and cut it out with Rectangle Nestabilities.  I embossed the bg with my PTI Picnic Plaid Impression Plate. I added a paper doily and some clouds that I cut with my PTI Cloud Die, along with some lace, ribbon, and a border punched with the Martha Stewart Daisy Border Punch.  A little stitching and it was complete!

SCRSC46~Enjoy


Hello!  I'm so glad I had a chance to play along with the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge this week!  I actually played last week too, but decided to use my card for the Dirty Dozen gallery, so you'll have to check it out on Splitcoaststampers on the 15th:) 

This week's challenge was to use your favorite color combo.  I LOVE Orange and Aqua, so that's what I went with.  Add a little green and it's perfect!  I used this cutie patootie Street Corner Josh, colored him with Copics and cut him out.  I popped him up on a square that I sponged with Aqua Mist and embossed with the CB Seeing Spots EF.  The dp is My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Fly A Kite, and the sentiment comes from the Verve set Enjoy.  Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps is also sponsoring Sweet Sketch Wednesday, so I used this week's sketch for my layout. 

Time to go start some dinner:)  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful evening!

Your Next Stamp Challenge #44~Shaped Card


Hello!  It's time for a new challenge at Your Next Stamp, and this time we want to see Shaped Cards!  I decided to pull out my Label 8 Nestabilities because I just love their shape:)  I folded some Aqua Mist cardstock in half, and cut it out with my Nestie, leaving the fold in place.  Then I cut one more single Labels 8 shape and glued that to the front of the card. 

The image I used is called Sippy.  Isn't he so super CUTE!?!  I used more My Mind's Eye Lime Twist dp, this time from the Fly A Kite paper pad.  The sentiment comes from the YNS set Handwritten Sentiments which I adore:) 

The prize for this challenge is this fun set~Rock Star Fhinn!

A New Term at PaperWorks Co.!


Hello!  Sorry my postings have been so sporatic!  I've been working on DD projects when I can, plus, now that it's summer I have all the kiddos home and they keep me busy! 

I'm excited to say that Peggy (owner of PWCO) has invited me to stay on for another term!  You can read my intro on the PWCO Blog today, and I made this card using the super sweet Rachelle Anne Miller image Whoo Loves You?  I covered the hearts on the stamp with tape, then inked it up and removed the tape before stamping.  This is a great way to cover up a part of the image that you don't want stamped!  Now I think this card is a perfect all occasion card:) 

Tonight my two best friends and I are taking our daughters to see Taylor Swift!  We are going to have so much fun!  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend:)
