couple of cards




A couple of cards...  I made the top card with the CAS(E) this sketch inspiration and the bottom card was just playing with new PTI stamps.

adventure cards



So I knew I was in trouble when I saw the travel stamps from PTI's latest release...  there's a trend on in my crafting-- coffee/camping and occasional flowers and something wine related once in awhile.  So here are three CAS cards I made with the new stamps... the card below is a loose take on the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.

this girl runs on coffee




Just a little pick me up....  Who can resist a coffee-centric sketch?  Thanks Retro Sketches for the inspiration (and ~amy~ for the head's up).

happy camper





Okay, I lied when I said I was done playing along with the PTI Stamp-a-Faire... (I'm procrastinating from some bookkeeping...).  So two more entries, a starry night card (with a fun Happy Camper sentiment on the inside) and me for a fond farewell, in my very messy craft room showing the 5 cards I made (oops, I forgot the gold one, b/c I mailed it to a friend today!).  Okay, off to tackle a few bills... always fun to see other folks inspiration.

sip on this.....



Happy Monday!  It's time for another PTI Blog hop and I've got a great track record of playing along, so I didn't want to miss out.  This month Nichole has challenged us to use the photo from Classy Clutter as an inspiration and I think you might see where I took the various elements and used them on my pillow box tag.  The sentiment is from Clear and Simple, ribbon from May Arts, pillow box from Reverse Confetti and all the other stamps and dies from PTI.  And because I had the coffee stamp set out that ~amy~ gifted me, I couldn't refuse using the sentiment on a coctail tag for one of the PTI Stamp-a-Faire challenge, gilded in gold, life is always better with gold embossing powder.  We'll see if I can squeeze in time after work to play along with the rest of the challenges...

life happens after coffee


Because I'm me.... I didn't want to miss this week's PTI Make It Monday, so I spritzed the PTI mat stack background and made a coffee card :)

more Stamp-a-faire fun


Happy Sunday crafty peeps!  I found some time this morning, before work, to tinker in my craft room, so I've got three more cards for the PTI Stamp-a-faire fun and games.  The first card is for the color blocking.  The second card is for the drips and splatters challenge.  And the third card is for the watercoloring challenge.  We'll see if I can squeeze in some more time to play along with more challenges....

just a note


Happy Saturday!  I have just returned home from a fabulous river rafting adventure in Oregon and while I'd love to say I'm going to make it through all the PTI Stamp-a-Faire fun, I'm not sure I've got enough time with work to dos.  So, here's a a CAS card for the Pointillism Challenge, what a great technique!  I used a PTI flower and sentiment and a Hero Arts background.

you make me a happy camper




Playing with pieces on my craft desk...  inspired by the CAS(E) this sketch challenge.  I used the Hero Arts trailer and sentiment, PTI tree die cuts, Lil Inkers dotted line die cut and some pieces of paper from my stash.  I posted this photo on Instagram yesterday which was my source of inspiration.
