CASE Study Challenge #150

Hi all! Hope that you are weathering the high temps! I am hiding out in my nice, cool basement while creating for the CASE Study Challenge #150! I love Jocelyn's bright colors, the circular pattern, and all of that lovely white space.... although, my version is a bit softer!

CAS(E) this sketch #36

Hi all! Since the temps are soaring here, I'm staying in and doing a bit of crafting (and laundry)!
I always enjoy a good sketch so I'm joining in at CAS(E) this sketch #36. Take a peek because there are so many beautiful examples!

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Feeling Nautical!

I am ready to set sail on my first Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge! Although I do not have the Verve "Feeling Nautical" set that the DT (and what an amazing team it is...WOW!) has used, I am still testing the waters with my new Reverse Confetti "Happy Harbor" stamps. Oh... puns abound! Happy Monday!

Hey There Sailor!

Happy Sunday! Just tryin' out my new Reverse Confetti stamps....they are oh so cute! I've got a Vineyard Vines/Lilly Pulitzer vibe going on here, I think. Using my Hero Arts mid-tone inks, which do very well with the solid stamps-love em'!

Wplus9 MMB #16, plus CFC #109

Oh...... those lovely Wplus9 Monday Mood Boards always get me goin', but then I come up with, um, nothing!  Some days it's so easy, and other days I could stay down in the craft cave all day (and I do mean ALL day!) pushing paper and ink around and still not have something that I am proud to share (like today!). But, I do so love those soft lilacs and yellows. And I will keep trying 'til I get one right! Oh, and think I'll jump on the CAS-ual Friday polka dot band wagon too (thanks Darnell!).
P.S. I used a My Favorite Things die on both cards ("Peek-a-Boo Dots")!

You Party Animal!

Isn't this just the cutest little stamp set? It was a freebie from Avery Elle Stamps- oh so generous! AND, love, love the AE sequins (great size and color assortment in each package)! I am now in girly/super sparkle-y/party mode!

Happy 13th Birthday!

Let the wild rumpus begin! Our goddaughter, Julia, will be turning 13 in just a few days and I wanted to make her card to commemorate this auspicious occasion! I used my new mini bow die from Clean and Simple Stamps and some older patterned paper from Making Memories. Oh, how I love periwinkle with the perfect green!
Happy Birthday Julia!
