Hello crafty peeps. Finding inspiration online... the top card is for the new Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights, the pink tree caught my attention. I used an Ellen Hutson sentiment, PTI tree stamp and MFT die. My second card is for the CASology challenge, "sorry" being the theme. I love the tiny sentiment and little heart on the big white canvas.

Happy Wednesday crafty peeps! I'm back with a new card for the new MFT Sketch Challenge... more camping themed goodies. We're hosting a Girl Camper weekend at the campground this weekend and I want to make a few more.... Are any of you crafty ladies interested in camping? I'm trying to come up a giveaway for my Instagram account... open to ideas and suggestions.

Playing along with the SugarPea Designs sketch, using the SugarPea tent die (and PTI dies and a Hero Arts sentiment). The card below-- I thought the PTI challenge this week was going to be to CASE one of the new release cards (it wasn't), but I made this card below from inspiration here. And my final card is playing along with the Viva la Verve sketch and the new fall leaves set.

Today's PTI Make It Monday is build a wreath and truth be known, I probably never would've made this card without that challenge... too many layers? Too many small pieces? But-- the short answer, is that I kinda like the card. I used a super vintage PTI set for the circle and pumpkin stamp, PTI Mat Stack dies (which I should dust off more often), a banner (I think it's Reverse Confetti), a happy die I got at Michael's (no brand name attached to it), May Arts ribbon, Lil Inker woodgain die on the card stock and a Waltzingmouse sentiment. So hoping today is less eventful than last Monday! The weather here is so beautiful-- fall is one of my favorite seasons. You can see a few more fall colors on my motel and campground Instagram feeds.

Hello campers... still feeling the aftermath of all the fires in California, my heart goes out to so many people. We had a number of folks at the campground this weekend who were seeking better air, so even those who didn't lose their homes are being affected. Here are a few cards I've made to make myself feel better. The top card uses the sketch from Fusion Card Challenge. The second card is for the Muse Challenge and I took a hint from Tracey and combined Altenew and Ellen Hutson for her Mix it up Challenge. And the third card uses the current Reverse Confetti Sketch.

Happy Friday crafty friends. This week has been so stressful in California, and while my house and and family are fine, the effects of the wildfires reaches far and wide to so many people. I had three employees evacuated from their homes this week, friends who had their loved ones lose everything in the Santa Rosa fires, friends who have been sheltering animals, air quality issues. So this tag, inspired by the new Tag You're It Challenge, is to remind all of us that hopefully these traumatic experiences will make us stronger... We can only hope, right? And since I've mentioned that I make cards to channel what I'm thinking about, the card below is another card for the current Where Creativity Meets C9 and CAS(E) this Sketch for my friend who had breast cancer surgery yesterday.
And one final card, because camping/glamping consumes a lot of my life at the moment. I used the MFT Sketch Challenge.

Happy Monday crafty friends. The day has not gone according to plan-- there are wildfires in our county, employees who are evacuated, school closures... I started the day with one vision of how things were going to do and in the end things went very differently. Our house and businesses are fine, but my heart aches for so many Californians that lost their homes today or are currently evacuated. So with that in mind, a delay in the posting of my crafting fun (I think many of you know that I like posting my Monday morning card first thing....). My first card was going to be for my October card class (which was cancelled in today's craziness), but I got inspiration from the current The Heart Desires Challenge. My second card combines the Altenew October Challenge with the current CAS(E) this sketch. And my third card is for the PTI Make It Monday, sentiment window card, I used a piece of PTI paper, PTI sentiment and a Altenew flower.

Happy Sunday crafty friends... two cards... As you can see I used the same inked embossed panel for the two projects (done by inking up the embossing folder). The top card is for the new Ellen Hutson Mix It Up Challenge- Altenew and Ellen Hutson, what a perfect pair these two are (Ellen Hutson sentiment, Altenew flower). The dies are from MFT. I also used the current CAS(E) this Sketch. My second project is for the MFT Sketch, using MFT sentiment and leaves (colored with distress oxide inks).
