You're The Coolest!

Just wanted to stop in and share this little card I made. He is a Sassy Cheryl cutie pie called
"Penguin  Panache". I just couldn't pass him up. I have always loved her snowmen but this little guy is too stinkin cute and skated right onto this card.

Love One Another

Happy Friday! 

I am here to share a quick page I started in Bible Journaling class and finished last night when I got home. In such a crazy world, it is so therapeutic to sit with others and talk about God's love for us and to be creative at the same time.  

1 John 3:18

18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

A Day Without A Friend

Hi Blogland! Tomorrow is Friday and we have reached the end of another work week. Wahoo!!
I'm here to share a card I made with one of Stamping Bella's adorable Stuffies stamps. I saw it and just HAD to have it. It jumped right into my shopping cart! Who doesn't love a mischievous bear?
I was thinking about a wonderful friend of mine while I was coloring this cutie so I will be sending this her way via snail mail.

Don't Tell Anyone...

I have had this cutie in my digi collection for quite some time. Isn't it adorable?!?
It is a Mo Manning image called "I Forgot". You can purchase it for yourself HERE.
She has been colored on my craft desk just waiting to be used for about a month, poor thing...
I FINALLY got some crafty time and had to give her a home.
I will probably keep her in my stash for the next time I forget something, which
probably won't be long. HeeHee
I did a little "research on the Forget Me Not flower and found that they are blue or blueish purple.
It doesn't go too well with the color scheme of my card but it fits the theme.
I think it stands out nicely.  
I am entering my card in the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #266, Anything Goes.

Ain't Nobody Here but Us Chickens

Good Morning Blogland! Up early playing in the craft room today.
This is just a little Birthday card I made. Don't you just love this adorable Penny Black stamp?
I saw it and knew it had to come home with me, so much fun!

While I was making this card I had this song stuck in my head and couldn't stop singing it.
BEWARE: Before you click the link below, just know that it might be stuck in yours today too.

Purrrrfectly Awful!

Hello Blogland! Hope you are all well. I'm here to share a quick card I made
for a card group swap. I thought it would be a good one for someone to keep on hand.
This card is super clean for me, but I thought Tim Holtz's Crazy Cat was
speaking for himself. Lol! Look at that pitiful face...

The sentiment was just typed up in a Word document. I framed it out with the same paper
I used on the little tag on the front. Easy Peasy!

Stamp: Tim Holtz - Crazy Cats, Avery Elle - Sentimental "hello"
Paper: Fancy Pants Designs - Park Bench

Happy Campers!

Hello and happy Wednesday! I have a little camping combo to share with you today. It was my camping buddy Paulette's Birthday so I wanted to make her a card and a sweet treat.
I used the "Camper Crazy" stamp set from Close to my Heart. I paper pieced this little cutie!

Once again I was sucked into Pinterest and found this cake and had to duplicate!
Chocolate, chocolate & more chocolate!!

Triple Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes!

I got cheffy in the kitchen on Mother's Day and made these DELICIOUS cupcakes.
I found a recipe on Pinterest and had to try it.
NAILED IT!!! (lol)
I tweaked it a bit and added my own touches but stuck with the recipe for the most part.

Hope I have inspired you to get in the kitchen and try something new.

Heard You Were Dragon...

Hi! I just wanted to share a little something I made this weekend.
Before boxing up my craft room and moving it into it's new home I had a few projects "in process". This little guy has been colored up for about 3 years and just waiting patiently to be made into something. I finally pulled this little card together and put a smile on his face.

Let Them Eat Cake...

I wanted to share a cake I made for my daughter's Gender Reveal Party. 
This is my first attempt at the "Pulled Dot" decorating technique. 
It was very time consuming, but it was fun. I like the result but I can't wait to try it again.
Practice makes perfect, right?

Dying to make some more ribbon...
(pun intended)
It's been quite a while since I played in Blogland.
Honestly, I haven't had much to share... sad huh?
My crafty friends Kim, from Oak Pond Creations and Linda, from Turtle in the Sand 
came over last weekend and we had some fun dying seam binding ribbon.
Why haven't I done this sooner?!?!

A Couple of CASE's!

Sometimes when you need a card quick or if you are having a mental block it's nice that there are SO MANY talented card makers out there!! I am sharing these today to show off some of those crafty card creators. ( Just a couple, I know TONS more! )

This card is one I made when I was in need of a QUICK Twin Boy card for a friend to give a friend.
You can find the original inspiration HERE.

This card is one I made when I was having the worst block and lack of crafty juices! I needed a card for my dear friend Kim's Birthday, what to do?!?!?!? I headed to Pinterest and found some
inspiration  HERE,

Hello! Long time...no post. Hopefully this wont be the case anymore. I have gotten my "Happy Place" relocated and I am in craft heaven! Maybe I will post some pics soon.
Anywhoo...I was searching my old blog land stomping grounds to get the juices flowing and came across one of my favorite blogs; the Tiddly Inks challenge blog. They had just what I was looking for, some #Tiddlyspiration! I just love Wren!
I made this card for my Great Niece, Bella. She is a cute little "ginger" with the spunk to match her head of hair. (just like her mama)
