Life's A PICNIC...


Happy Monday crafty friends. I am starting out this week creating with Lawn Fawn and lots of it. Today's card was created using Crazy Antics stamp set, Palm Tree Border die set, Outside In Stitched Scalloped Circle dies, On the Beach stamp set, Quilted Backdrop die, Perfectly Plaid and Spring Fling paper pads.

Mixing it all up today. 


The images are colored with Copic sketch markers and I cut all the images out using my Brother Scan n Cut machine. Yes, I took it out of the closet and used it. Gives the images all an even edge. I embossed the sentiments and well that is it.

I had a different vision of this card when I started creating it, but it did not work out. I am pleased with the outcome. Funny how it does not always come out like you image. It just shows you that our creative mind is going in loops and can easy get off track. LOL

That is all for today.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Just Like YOU...


Happy Friday blog friends. I hope you all have had a great week and have something fun planned for the weekend. I don't have anything planned yet but I hope we can think of something to do. We try and do outdoor stuff so we don't have to wear a mask. When it is hot outside wearing a mask is just suffocating. I pray everyday that life gets back to normal. I pray for a cure and that no more business have to close up due to all the closures. The world is a strange place right now.

Well enough of that. Let's talk about this card I just created. I created it using Reverse Confetti: Ice Cream Social stamp set, So Many Sentiments stamp set, Love Note die set, Under the Umbrella and Fun Times paper pads. Lots of Reverse Confetti.


So many stamps too create with I sometimes have a hard time choosing what stamps to ink up. Weird problem to have... right? I mean that should not even be a complaint. HaHa..

I colored these sweet images with Copic sketch markers and hey I had the coordinating dies... I know a miracle right? I used some foam tape to give the images some dimension. TOTALLY SIMPLE card to create. As you can see not much going on, but don't you just love those sweet little critters?

Well I hope you all have a weekend full of fun.
Thank you for stopping by.

Birthday Rainbow...



Happy July 8th. It is not a special day but I am happy because it cooled off today. LOL We have had our air on for three days and today the ocean breeze is in the air. But the heat is coming back this weekend. WHY so hot?.... ok, I'll get on with it now.

So today's card was created using all sorts of My Favorite Things.... Drink Up the Sunshine stamp set, Sunny Vibes stamp set. Beary Special Birthday stamp and die set, Spotlight Sentiments stamp set,  Rainbow Whimsy die-namics and Party Patterns paper pad. Mixing it all up today.


The images are colored with Copic sketch markers and I used all sorts of fun polka dot paper. Yay for polka dots. Oh yeah I almost forgot the Star Celebration stencil in the background. See lots of MFT. I used some foam adhesives to give some of the images some dimension. 

I would say it was a totally simple card to create with all my favorite colors. Let's not forget all those polka dots... I mean come on they are polka dots. I love me some polka dots. But if you follow my blog, you must already know that. 

That is all for today.
I am off because it is almost coffee time.
Thanks for stopping by.

Good Times Roll...


I am back with another card. I colored up these cuties for The Daily Marker Day 6 color challenge. I have not been doing that well keeping up but with this new week, I am going to try and do better. Coloring is always fun so it should not be so hard... RIGHT? LOL
I just got this new Avery Elle Peek-A-Poo Coaster stamp set in the mail and well just had to ink it up. My husband and I LOVE roll-a-coasters. The thrill of the fast right is so fun.


I colored the images with Copic Sketch markers and did a little fussy cutting. Again too cheap to buy the matching dies. LOL  I used some misc. designer paper to create my background. The top part is from Elle's Studio and the bottom well is pieced together with scraps, sorry I don't know who the paper is from. 

Of course I added some fun polka dots, they just make me happy. I used foam tape on the coaster cars to give it some dimension and finished up with this fun sentiment that I heat embossed on some misc. card-stock. Not a difficult card to create but totally fun... right?

That is all that I have for you today.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Sending you all a big SMILE.

Best Times...


Yay today I am on the Evelin T Designs blog and I am sharing a card that I created using Best Friends Fur-Ever! stamp set


These stamp sets are so fun to create with. The entire new release is full of cuteness. You can see it all HERE. Just in case you missed it. LOL

I colored the images with Copic sketch markers and fussy cut them out. I wanted to add some dimension to my card so I did that with the images and the frame. I used some already cut out dies that I had. It is the pile that I did not use before but am now because it was perfect for this card and not the last one I create it for. LOL I am sure you all have that extra pile too.

For more fun Evelin T Designs inspiration make sure to follow her blog HERE.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day!

Let's Flamingle....


Happy July everyone. Who ready for a new month of fun? Today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE and I am getting crafty with some of the June release... Let's Flamingle stamp and coordinating die set, Layered Rectangles A& dies and Pastel Dreams paper pad

If you have not seen the new release well you should check it out. It is full of summer fun. You can see the entire release HERE.


How pretty is this paper from the Pastel Dreams? I love stripes and dots and pastel colors... well I am hooked. I had fun coloring up with pretty Flamingo. It is a simple color combo but I love the art and creative detail in this stamp. Finished up with stamping this fun sentiment directly onto my card base. Totally simple card to create. 

I hope you all have a wonderful start to this new month. The 4th of July is right around the corner. Fireworks are illegal where I live but I am sure there will be show somewhere. Well let me take that back because who knows with the way things are these days. I really do hope they do... we will see!

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day!

like, totally....


Yay for Friday, who had a great week? Mine was ok, but it sure did go by fast. Today I am on the Pink & Main blog and I am sharing the newly released My Jam stamp and coordinating die set. If you grew up in the 80's this might just bring back some memories. I used to love going to the roller rink and skate to all the cool 80's music. 



I stamped this cool background using WFC ink pads and colored these cool skates with Copic sketch markers. I added them using foam adhesives and finished up with stamping this Totally RAD sentiment. 

That is all that I have for you today. I am going to work in my yard today and maybe go to the beach later. 

Thanks for stopping by.
Have an awesome cool weekend!

Paddle Your Worries Away...


Happy day everyone. Today I created a card for the Newtons Nook Design challenge. I seen Amy T. create a card for the challenge and loved the sketch so figured I would play along too. Thanks Amy for inspiring me. 

This card was creating using NND: Winton's Lake House stamp set and Sea Borders Die. 


I love this little sentiment but I would in more situations say Pray your worries aways. My husband and I actually love being in a boat. So this card was fun to create. I colored the images with Copic sketch markers and used a little foam adhesives to give it some dimension.

You can play along too with the Newton's Nook Challenge #126 HERE.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have an awesome Wednesday!
