Good Day!

I still haven't found any time to get inky but I do have a card from last week to share :)

I used the Freshly Made Sketch and combined it with the SCS Ways To Use It Challenge - Watercoloured Backgrounds.

This is a SU! only card created with this awesome tree stamp! I love trees!

Hey! I Miss You Already


I haven't stamped in days but I plan on changing that this week. Trying to get more in a routine. Brian hooked up my tv and digital box by my stamp table so in the evening when he's busy on his computer in the basement, I can be down there with him! Fun!

Here's another card I created using the pretty colour combo from last week's Paper Players Challenge #240 and also Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #264.

Bloom & Grow Mojo393

Ahhhh it's almost the weekend!

I'm off Thursday(but working for a few hours) and then work Friday.
Hitting the highway.....southbound for the weekend! Yeah!

I do hope to be home early enough on Sunday to watch the race and stamp though ;)

It's been a very very long time since I last played along with the Mojo Sketch.
So happy to ink up some pretty Verve stamps again!!!

I used the wonderful Bloom & Grow stamp set from Verve.

Hello :)


Feels like I've been down and out for weeks and it's only been two days of feeling yucky!

Hopefully I'm back to myself soon and can continue organizing my new craft space.

Here is a card I created for two challenges:

I'm in love with these SU! colours and stamps!
I was a little late to the party as these are retiring colours in just a few short months :(
I will be stocking up on all three of these for sure!!!
HereI used the new to me set called Flower Patch and Hi There along with the Flower Fair framelits.

Thanks for stopping by!

Mixed Media Canvas

Happy Thursday!
Or is it? LOL!

This is my late day and for some reason I'm always wide awake at 4:30am. Sure makes for a LONG day!
Plus this is my full weekend to work. Monday seems so far away. While most of you dislike Monday morning, I'll be jumping for joy LOL!

Yesterday Chloe and I got crafty together. Not often does she like to get involved in anything artsy.
She's the reader and writer in our our house.
So when she said she wanted to do something with canvas, I thought, what the heck! Let's do this!

She doesn't want me to show what she's working on but I'll show you what was completed yesterday.
I started with a blank canvas and added a layer of Gesso.
After that dried I added some hexagon shapes with a stencil and modeling paste.
Rubbed some Baked Brown Sugar ink over it and added some swipes of aqua colour paint. Thinking it needed to be muted a bit I rubbed more of the Baked Brown Sugar ink on the entire canvas.
I die cut some MFT flowers and leaves and sponged them. Everything was attached with a glue gun. Afterward I decided to spritz the entire canvas with some pretty Angel Mist. 

Thanks for stopping by!

The Rainbows of Life...

Happy Wednesday!

I'm so excited to be off today because Chloe is on Spring Break and we have some plans to get crafty together!!
She rarely likes to get inky but we are going to give some mixed media and canvas a whirl later today. 
Should be fun!!!

Here is a card I created last weekend using the Freshly Made Sketch #180 and also for the Paper Players Challenge #239 - Die Cuts
Look at all that white space! A card like this used to freak me out but they've grown on me :)

Hope everyone had a nice Easter!

It was a quiet day for us. Some much needed R&R time.
I was able to get into my stamp area and do some organizing and then stamping!

I created the card below for the Featured Stamper on SCS and also for the Paper Players Challenge this week to use die cuts.
I chose to CASE Stef's card here.
I really wanted to use some of the tools that Brian had gotten for me over the past several months.
So I got busy with some distress inks and my paint brush. Once that dried I reached for some modelling paste and a stencil. 
I forgot how fun it is to get messy! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!

Honey, I love you

Hello and happy Easter weekend!

It's Good Friday and I'm working. That's retail life.
It's going to be busy with everyone coming in for a ham or turkey or fish today.
Looking forward to the busy times actually :)
Makes my day go by

The card below was created using the Freshly Made Sketch and was chosen as one of the favourites this past Tuesday :)

I'm loving these cute new stamps from Reverse Confetti!!
This one I made for Brian and left for him on the front seat of his truck when he left for work in the morning.
