A Pajama Party


I'm playing at Waltzingmouse's Pajama Party today~woot woot!!


I'm glad this is one of those pajama parties where you don't have to actually wear pajamas, LOL.


I have none pretty enough for such an occasion. ;)


I played with a couple of Waltzingmouse sets: My Island and Teeny Trees (my go-to element set) to create this one layer card.











Challenge 3:In the Background




There are still a few hours left for three of the challenges and more time for a sketch challenge if you want to play along this week.


~Have a great day friends~

Splotches of Color



It's fun to splotch in an outline image.






I took the colorful inspiration from Moxie Fab's

Tuesday Trigger:A Painterly Palette






and the bold presentation of 

CASE Study Challenge #151
Jocelyn Olson
 
 

 

to create this card.


The hardest thing was keeping the white parts white...my fingers seem to  leave prints everywhere!


oh, but it's a BLESSING to have the time and inspiration to stamp~hope you got some creative time in for yourselves!

Christmas in July



Woah...ANOTHER card...

 and a CHRISTMAS card at that.



The first one is always the hardest for me.




However, when there's a splash challenge at the Cafe~you can count me IN!







I used a Post It note for that splash of neon.



I thank the challenge at

Christmas in July With a Catch (semi-flat).


It motivated me to get one done.

Polka Dots on a Sympathy Card




Polka dots on a sympathy card?


Really?


No, I'm not trying to make a painful,sudden death light...






but rather...honor the sweet,sweet spirit of one who was taken while she still had so much LIFE left, you know?



This wasn't the route I originally planned for






however, it IS a card I had been putting off making.



To Mrs. Coast...


a beautiful, beautiful ray of light who is home.

I created this card for a friend that's been on my heart.






The inspiration hit and I ran with it.



The striped patterns married in this challenge ...







made me think of the Fancy Pants ParkBench designer paper.



It's a ready-made, pieced together look which I trimmed to fit in the typewriter die.


This represents how thoughts of her needing prayer has interjected my daily activities. 



Thanks for stopping in friends!

You Are Incredible






I created this card for one of my incredible daughters~





I was inspired by the following challenges:






 What I love about the Mixy Matchy trend, is the "one of a kind" design you get from paper scraps.


It's a paper quilt which is as  unique as the recipient!


~Have a blessed day friends~

SPONGED WAVES



I did some sponging today with my distress inks.


The sponged triangles on Lisa Spangler's card inspired me to sponge over a die cut.









The wave border on Broni's card reminded me of the wave designs I have on my Cameo.


I recently downloaded this surfer and

paired the image with Flourishes Enjoy the Ride sentiment.


 I don't sponge as often as I should...it's really relaxing to just "DO" you know?


Get a little messy and give it a try~

A CASE and a Cutie Card


I have two cards to share today.  One is a CASE...






Here is her card I CASED...




If you are familiar with Silke's creations...she uses white in the most elegant way.

I wrapped a ribbon around a panel like she did.

Instead of three shiny dots, I stamped three flowers.



The second card is for my niece.



I don't often do cutie pie cards....





but I DO love this cutie pie hedgie!!!
