Shabby Chic Thanks

Happy Monday!  Today is a good day to be alive I think!

Today I wanted to share a recent card I made for Crafter's Companion.



This features the pearlescent cardstock Sara Davies Spring Garden collection DP and Lace Ribbon.  So pretty with those sweet little butterflies.  Also, I used the fun rub-ons with foil that were shown in the May HSN.  They are so cool and fun!   Here is another shot that better shows the shimmer of the foils. 


So darn pretty don't you think?  I just love the shabby chic feel.  

Thanks for visiting today!

On the Horizon

Hey all.  You may have noticed I took a little break from Sketch Saturday, but I am baaa-aack!  Just in time for a fun new sketch!



Now take this fun sketch and flip it on it's side, add a little Digi Stamp Boutique and BAM!




Isn't Mr. Dan soooooo cute!  I really had fun coloring this guy and his bitty bird.  I coupled him with some Authentque DP and used some star punches and woodchips to accent the stars on the DP.  The woodchips were also colored with a Copics.  The little Journal cards are from Lawn Fawn and the sentiment is from Ellen Houston.  So happy with this result!

OK, please head on over to Sketch Saturday and join us for the fun!

A little Curtain Call?

Hi again!  It is a busy posting week for me, I know kinda strange....  But I have been busy creating and I've had a few free minutes to get some blog posts up!  This one is to play in the current Curtain Call Challenge.  Here is the inspiration photo:



And here is the card I made, I threw in a few extra colors but I figured the team over there wouldn't begrudge me that because it is soooo cute!



I just can't take the cuteness of this elephant from the Neat & Tangled Beach Day set!  SQUEE!!!
This is perfectly coupled with red rubber wave background stamp that I purchased at impress.  The die is from Waffle Flower.  I love the contrast of the yellow and the blue.  The bonus are the little sunshine's in the yellow DP, perfect.   I hope you like too.

PS- My friend Lenae is guesting over at the Curtain Call with the cutest card, so you have to go check it out! 

Thanks for visiting!

Hug Time?

What do you think about today? I think today is a good day to play in the Your Next Stamps Color Challenge #68!


Do you know what else today is a good day for?  HUGS!


Here is my card for the YNS Challenge.  I used the Insanely Happy set because, well... just read the title.  These sweet things are soooo cute!  I paired "Poppy" with this fun journal card.  I used some Doodlebug DP and Enamel dots with some Studio Calico twine.  The die in the background is from Gina Marie Designs. I enjoyed every moment of coloring with my Copics.  

Now if you haven't seen the trolls movie you should, it is just too cute and it will bring you even more happiness to this already insanely happy set!

Thanks for the visit!

THD MId Challenge 14- Mermazing

Raise your hand if you are enjoying the summer?!  Me!!!  

We spent the 4th of July with family and it was HOT there.  But thankfully we got to spend time on 
the water, swimming and in kayaks. 

The Heart Desires Blog has a fun beach themed challenge to go with all that summer sun. Remember this beauty?


Super fun, super wow, super colors right?  You've gotta give it up to Toni for the AMAZING mood boards she makes!  Here is my mid-challenge card: 




For this card I started with the We R Memory Keepers Next Level Embossing Waves. I added some Distress Oxide Ink- Broken China.  I came back in with Stormy Sky and added some circles.  Next I colored this sweet mermaid from Neat and Tangled's Mermazing and finished her off with some highlights and sparkle pens. The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti.  Pretty happy how this sweet girl turned out. 

Don't forget, we are celebrating the anniversary of The Heart Desires Store and the THD Challenge this month with a hop where you could be a winner! Come join us for the fun!

True Love Blooms


Happy Tuesday!  I believe today is a good day for some color!

OK, if you love to color these Crafter's Companion Colorista Background stamps are perfect for that. I found myself in a hypnotic state when using this stamp.  I stamped it using my Misti, it was the easiest way to use this big stamp.  I then used a whole assortment of Spectrum Noir Markers to color this bad boy (including: BT3, CR3, ES9, LY1-3, OR1, LG1-2, CT1, CG2, CG2-3, GT!, HB2, BT7 & 9, TB9 and BP6).


I framed the card with a couple layers of Cardstock and added a sentiment to the front.  Perfect, easy and mesmerizing.  I hope you agree!

Thanks for the visit today!
