You&Me Car

I created this for my husband:

Spellbinders Sunday Sunset/Sunday Drive (Expressions of Love), Spellbinders Mini Everyday Sentiments

It's a little that I'm usually the driver.

 He knows my nerves can't take another person driving. ;)

We planned an anniversary adventure within a couple of hours from us.

He took a day off from work so we could museum hop.

Birthdays Look Great On You Ribbon Cover Die

The Stamp Market Ribbon Plaid Cover die, My Favorite Things Anything But Basic Birthday Greetings, Hero Arts Cherry Blossom dies, Spellbinders Mini Everyday Expressions Hot Foil Plate

I had to create something for the following challenge: 

This cool coverplate makes room for ribbon weaving, so I used some of my ribbons that sat untouched.

Grill Master


My dad's card:

Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Apron, Spellbinders Glimmer Essentials Mini Everyday Sentiments/Super Stripes Background

Thank you card challenges!!!

I had fun with the dies here, by using the tongs to hold the sentiment ;).

Is this sportive? I hope so! ;)

If it's not, know that my dad loves to send pics of his grilled perfections to us and ask "where you stay???".

It's a Hawaii saying...but basically, he's playfully saying he misses us and wishes we could be there. :(

One day, day.....Lord willing.

Hello Pop Up Planter With Peach Highlights

Someone gave me such nice metal pieces to add to my stash, so I had to thank her with a nifty pop up planter.

The Stamp Market Pop Up Planter Die/Yucca Plant die/Sending a Little Message sentiment stamp, Concord & 9th Nectar Cardstock, Simple Stories Harvest Market patterned paper, Honey Bee Stamps Inside Thankful Sentiments

I added a "hello" message and peach colors for these two challenges~

I sent it out the minute it was done! 

I'm trying to be better about actually mailing my creations out. :)

Thanks for your visit today!


Congratulations Bridal Gown

I had a quick request for a bridal shower tag, so I pulled out a die set I have from Honey Bee Stamps.

It's been awhile since I popped up layers of a die (there's three layers to the skirt area, but this went out the door before I could take more pics :) ).

This will hang on a bag, and it seemed the opportunity for it. 

Honey Bee Stamps The Perfect Day dies, The Stamp Market Succulent & Sentiments Stamp & Die, Concord & 9th Nectar Cardstock

I just recently purchased Concord & 9th Nectar Cardstock, perfect for this trendy color challenge:

Colorful Options Challenge: Peach

3D Planter Sent Late

I have a feeling I'm going to get lots of requests for this from family and friends...

The Stamp Market Pop Up Planter Die/Yucca Plant die/Sending a Little Message sentiment stamp, Bossy Joscie Sent Late sentiment stamp, Catherine Pooler Stroke of Midnight Paper Pad


How cool is this 3D planter die that folds flat???

There's many ways to use it in a design, and I decided at the last minute to tuck a sentiment inside.

It's easy to cut a section out and add it on later.

I also added a cat charm to the leaves.

Tiny 1 & Tiny 2

So I have a friend who hopes to throw a baby shower for her daughter.

She's expecting twins (the shower is around July 4).

The Stamp Market Pop Up Planter Die, Word Document created sentiments, Damask Love Write At Home/Don't Go Bacon My Heart Patterned Paper, Clover Pom Maker

Simon Says (Monday): Not a Card

She called me for help; so far I've got sample decor that should fit well with patriotic colors (thanks to the newest Color Hues challenge)~

The newest pop up planter from The Stamp Market creates a solid base for my homemade pom poms. ;)

Thank you for your sweet visit!

Thanks a Million Coffee Shop

I created this thank you card for the owner of a beautiful coffee shop.

We rented the space for our daughter's baby shower, and she was an amazing host~

My Favorite Things Coffee Shop/Be Your Own Barista/Make a Sign/Bistro Basics, Spellbinders Mini Everyday Sentiments, American Crafts Damask Love Life's a Party Collections daisy acetate, Hero Arts Rounded Rectangles, Brutus Monroe Alabaster ink, Lawn Fawn Plan On It: Calendar Months and symbols on the larger sign

Our theme was "April Showers Bring May Flowers", so I used Lawn Fawn's Plan On It months and symbols on the large sign in the scene.

Gorgeous inspiration from the photo at Time Out; I love the subtle shine and reflective qualities of the beverage tray. 

The clear daisy acetate on my card is from American Craft's Damask Love Life's a Party.

Masculine Cabinet Inspiration

Erin Lee Creative Jeep die/Teen Slang sentiment, Honey Bee Stamps Inside: Thankful Sentiments, Avery Elle Double Stitched Rectangles


Love the multicolor rectangles and masculine vibe at this challenge prompt:

so I used it to create my husband's Father's Day card.

Lately, we've been buddies (empty nest syndrome), so the Bruh was just kinda an inside joke;).

Ya'll I've even golfed a few times in the past couple of years (not my thing, but tryna be a "friend" to hubs).

I appreciate your sweet visit today!
