When Did That Happen?

So my last babygirl is flying the coop guys.

Pray for me.

I'm all kind of feels every day leading up to that big day.

This particular Happy Hopper image hit me and I matched it with an apropos sentiment ~

Stampendous Happy Hopper Diva Hopper, The Ink Road Stamps Dark & Twisty, Avery Elle Wonky Stitches, Copics, Distress Inks

 My daughter has had to grow up like NOW 

(you can click if you want the deets...I can't go down that emotional path today).

I know God's got her and I know that she will grow into those shoes eventually~

Thanks to these challenges, this card got done:

(sponged edges and Copic speckled background)

How's them shoes and purse I Copic ombre'd?

I would LOVE that matching pair IRL. ;)

Thanks for the visit!


That Hand Which Bears All Nature

Here's another one of those girls~

 Santoro Gorjuss Little Fishes dies, Sweet n Sassy Stamps God Is, My Favorite Things Stitched Clouds

 Thanks to this nautical beauty, I was inspired to put her together:

 Both the sentiment and clouds are no longer, but I listed above in case you can find it somewhere~

Chocolate S'mores

I came back from vacation and there are piles of this and that on my table~

My easiest cards come from these piles!

I would never think to match up all the elements that find each other on my desk~

Doodlebug So Much Pun, The Rabbit Hole Designs Sassy Sentiment, Clearly Besotted Leafy Flourish, My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Circles

The s'more and sentiment were the only things I had to search for but the rest was on my desk.

  This photo at Inspired by Laurel was my inspiration~

Cupcake Photo Inkspirational DT

It's time for another challenge at Inkspirational!

This time it's a delightful cupcake photo, so I created my own version of "cupcakes".

Sweet n' Sassy Vintage Baby, My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Circles/Square Frames, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Doodlebug Sprinkles

Pastels led me to a baby card, and I could always use one in my stash!

I got as close to pastels as possible when shading the "cupcakes".

If you leave the die on while sponging ink, it will create a crisp border~

 Click on the photo to see what the rest of my talented team has come up with and
