Happy Birthday times 2



Happy Monday!  Playing with the PTI Create With Us, inspired by Amy's birthday card.  What I love about these challenges is that they inspire me to use stamps I already have (I know, I should buy that fabulous PTI balloon set, but low and behold, I already have a Lil Inkers Designs balloon set....).  But I used the PTI Happy die and birthday sentiment and pulled out one of their edger dies.  My second card is for the MFT Color Challenge, I combined some MFT dies with Concord & 9th stamps.

love live snail mail!



Playing along with this week's CAS(E) this Sketch!  Super honored to have gotten a shout out for last week's challenge.  And below is my new favorite card for the Ellen Hutson Mix It Up Challenge with Concord & 9th.  I'm over on the Coffee Lovers Blog today with another card for the same challenge.

camping card




Playing along with the SugarPea Designs sketch with some dies cuts from them (the trees and tent).  I'm a bit low in my camping themed cards inventory at the campground, so I should probably put away the coffee cup stamps and get cranking....

We're more than just friends...




This month Where Creativity Meets C9 challenges you to use your fist Concord & 9th set, I think I got these two stamps in the same order....  I made this card this morning before the gym and gave it to my crafty work out buddy....  Her husband would probably love to send me the bill for all the enabling I have done for her crafty addiction.

Wine bottle birthday card



Happy Wednesday crafty peeps.  Playing along with the new MFT Sketch Challenge, I used a MFT background stamp, dies and wine bottle and tiny star dies for my card.  Birthday cheer.... for someone (you know if I actually sent someone a birthday card!).  Hope everyone is having a good day.

Let the Adventure begin and more


Happy Monday!  Playing along with the new PTI Make It Monday, to use stencils with embossing.  I went for the embossing paste and some glitter and made a delightful mess.    My second card is for the CASology "encouragement" challenge using a Unity stamp I got from Lynn.  Perfect for the friend going through breast cancer chemo.  And my final card, b/c you know how it goes around here, it always ends up back at coffee.  So I'm combining the MFT sketch and color challenge.

Just a little lovely...


A mix of procrastination and motivation... today's card includes 2 cards I made for this week's card class, plus playing along with the Ellen Hutson Mix It Up Challenge (top card with Ellen Hutson and Concord & 9th), the PTI Make It Monday A La Carte Challenge, the Inspired by all The Little Things Challenge.  My final butterfly card isn't for a challenge, just playing with pieces.... Although, that being said, this week's Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is "Something new" and I used my new-to-me butterfly dies from Lynn.

3 sketches



Happy Saturday!  I got back in my craft room this morning after a few days away.  So I got inspired from some challenges.  The first card is for the My Favorite Things Sketch, still playing with felt hearts.  My second card is for the Fusion Card Challenge and the third card was inspired by the CAS(E) this Sketch!  My second card uses a new to me Simon Says Stamp set (it's a holiday set), so I'm entering it in the Simon Says "Something New" challenge.  And because Time Out Challenge theme is "Thankful" I'm going to add the final card.

thinking of you tag


Today, over on Tag You're It Challenge, we're showcasing a few of our favorite tags from the challenge.  Many, many thanks to Tracey for inviting me to be a part of her tag fun.  I played along with the challenge longer then I was on the design team, but I'm confident that I will continue to play with my robust collection of tag dies.

Happy Birthday



Playing along with the new January Altenew Inspirational Challenge, making a birthday card I should probably mail.  I didn't mean to heat emboss the two in white, but grabbed the wrong color embossing powder... oops.
