A little catch up!!


Well my idea of catching up over the weekend didn't happen.. We had some beautiful weather and it was go outside and stay for as long as you can. We've been cooped up inside with all the snow that we will take any nice days we can get at this point. There are still a few more snow days before it's all over I'm sure. 

I had a project for last week's MDS Monday I just never got it posted.. There's till time to play along with the fun card sketch challenge.. The Linky is open until this Friday @ 11:55pm EST. 


We're are using the above sketch and the Color Match tool.. The goal is to use only colors on your projects from the DSP you select. I created my own text panel with the sentiments from the Endless Birthday Wishes kit and some of the stamps.

Up next is the Mid- Month Sketch challenge at Stampin' Celebration! The Montly Inspiration challenge is still open as well.. Both challenges end on the 28th of April. 


I needed a Masculine Birthday card and I haven't used the Lovely as a Tree set yet so I thought this was the perfect sketch to give it a try. I love how this card came out.. All the colors and textures created with the Stamps and Ink. And the rustic look to it. 

All SU Supplies Unless Noted : 
Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Old Olive card-stock, Soho Subway DSP 
Chocolate Chip & Olive Ink/ Markers 
Lovely as a Tree & Hardwood Stamp Set, Birthday Balloons set (Simon Says Stamp) 
Twine, Designer Naturals Buttons, Sponge Daubers & Stampin' Dinmensionals.

I created some fun Easter Treats for my Youngest Son's class last week. I used a bunny from the Silhouette online store and some SU card-stock. He's class loved them.. each one had a chocolate covered marshmallow egg inside. 


A few weeks back I had a class a few hours away for my Aunt's club.. and we created this fun Gum Holder. Using the Happy Watercolor Set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. 


Thanks for stopping by.. I hope you are all doing well!

  1. HI
    I just wanted to leave you a little comment to let you know that I CASEd your Lovely as a Tree card for an upcoming class I am having. I have had that set for a REALLY LONG time and have not inked it in years. Your card inspired me and I was happy with my card. I made a few changes, wish I could post a picture here for you. But mostly I wanted to say thanks for the inspiration and I love your card!
