Watercolor Tree Set

I got to play a little with watercoloring...

I hit the circles and added some sprinkles all over the panel~

MFT Tri-panel Sketch

I tried my hand at a sketch ~using papers I'm currently infatuated with. :)

Be proud...I tend to hoard my favorites~so it's LOVE when I share them on a card.

(stamp: My Favorite Things Pretty Poppies sentiment   dies:My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints 11/Sentiment Strips,Papertrey Ink Happy Trails butterfly  paper:Basic Grey Grand Bazaar)

I love the moving swirl section in the Blueprints 11~it's one of my favorites.

I followed this sketch~


Wish I had more to say...but Monday is my "WHAT IS GOING ON", dive into the week day...so I'm speechless and swimming fearlessly toward what this week has to offer!  ha!

Thanks for stopping by today~

Best Wishes

I was blessed to win a Simon Says Stamp challenge draw~and I bought my first Altenew Set.

I paired it with classic Verve for a Tall & Skinny light.

(stamps:Altenew Mini Blossom,Verve Love Story)

I used these beautiful colors~


Here's best wishes for a light and carefree Monday~


Treasure These Moments

I used to take TONS of pics of my girlies.

Now, I take tons of pics of my cards!!!


I don't love my cards more...they just don't mind the attention as much. :)

Not only that, the girlies take selfies and pics with friends~they just seem more relaxed when someone else has the camera.

I'm not sure what I'll use this card for...it just sort of fell together~you know how that goes, my crafty friends. :)

Thanks for stopping by~

Butterfly Stitching & Sprinkle

Kept it simple today~

(stamp:Papertrey Ink Winter Woods sentiment/The Sweet Life roses  die:Sweet 'n Sassy New Beginnings    other:We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Tool, Paper Piercer,Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets)

Be impressed...I did a 'lil handstitching. :)

I started out with a sew easy tool for straight lines, then paper pierced the holes and handstitched with embroidery thread.

I went with blues and yellow


 a butterfly inspiration...


& a sprinkling of clear droplets~


Glad I could fit in some creative "me" time today~

thanks for stopping by!

Dad's Bday

Dad's birthday isn't until July...but I'm ready!

(stamp:Hero Arts Operation Write Home sentiment  other:We R Memory Keepers Gemstone Embossing folder,Cuttlebug Diamond Plate Embossing Folder,Pink Paislee Licorice Chipboard Alphabet,About Time Travellin' Cars Rub-On)

Sister sent me FUN FUN scrapbook hand-me-downs ..rub on trucks and alphabet letters.

Not to mention, the following challenges which motivated this card...

This dynamic sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch...



Celebrations with optional twist of die cutting/fussy cutting
 (I applied the truck rub-on to black cardstock and fussy cut it and the "happy" sentiment)

(I was inspired by the chrome shine in this photo-hence the papers and embossing folders chosen)

~metallic paper~
