Card Recognition

thank you




A CAS card for this week's MFT sketch challenge, I love that I have this little voice in my head that says, "Of the 3 MFT stamp sets you own, I think there's a circle..." and low and behold, it was right!  It's the wine set.... and look, no wine?! (See yesterday's card).  My older son was looking for a thank you card in my stash the other day and he said, "All you have are coffee cards and birthday cards, I need a thank you card..."  I think he may have a point.

wine fixes everything, with love



Wine fixes everything... I keep joking that I've been making myself pep talks via my greeting cards (there's a theme if you look back) and I'm thinking today's projects fit well into the creative subconscious trains of thoughts.  My first project is for this month's PTI Blog Hop inspiration from just the bee's knees, while I certainly love ice cream and popsicles, wine is certainly at the top of my list at the moment as we get to the final push to open our campground.  I die cut out the PTI alphabet dies with foam, which gives the card an extra dimension.  And my second card is for the latest CAS(E) this sketch using some new Altenew goodies.  Look forward to seeing other people's inspiration for both of these challenges.

you make me a happy camper



Happy Thursday crafty peeps.  I think there may be a trend over here, anyone spot it?  Campground building is consuming my being, so why not spend my creative time working out those trains of thoughts?  I love that the other day my husband said that he does a good job processing problems while using the tractor.  So, we're both working through our business agendas with different tools.  Today's card was inspired by the MFT sketch, I used a MFT sentiment and PTI dies and trailer stamp.  Off to edit the rest of my fun glamping tent photos....

home away from home


So...  I think many of you have caught on that we're building a campground right?  I made this tag this morning just for fun.. b/c it feels like the Inn Town Campground is our home away from home at the moment.  And my fabulous glamping tent photos just make me smile.

thanks a latte


Thanks a latte...  playing with coffee goodies over here.  The top card uses the sketch from the latest Fusion Challenge as inspiration, with a mix of goodies (Verve sentiment, The Ton coffee stamps, Hero Arts background, PTI notebook die, May Arts burlap string).  And the below was me playing with goodies floating around my desk.  Yet another pep talk to myself while we race to the finish line with campground building.

we don't camp we glamp





Two cards inspired by the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge.  The top card uses a tent from the Roughing It stamp set and a sentiment from somewhere that ~amy~ made me buy...    The second card uses a Verve coffee cup and a MFT sentiment.  For those of you who read my blog on regular basis, here's yet another example of giving myself pep talks through greeting cards... drink lots of coffee, finish building campground...  I'm super excited to be able to continue to photographing some of our glamping tents today, promise to share more photos via Instagram when I'm done.
