*Insert Title Here*

Well, hello there and thanks for stopping by! I didn’t have a snazzy title for my post so if you’re reading this, you can choose the title. I don’t suppose it really matters anyway whether this post has a title or not, am I right? I have a few cards to share that I made recently.  The first one up is a cute shaker card that I made for Cas-ual Fridays’ challenge CFC183. I decided to do a large panel shaker and matched the sequin colors to that of the plaid paper.

friend shakerNext up is a card for Lawn Fawnatic’s Challenge #13. The warm fall colors inspired me to use this yummy plaid paper found in Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid (Fall) 6×6 paper pack.

LF Challenge 13I colored the cute pinata from LF Year Seven with Copic colors to match the plaid. I added just a bit of sparkly glitter to the pinata too…after all, it IS a party! It’s hard to tell from the photo but the pinata is mounted on a mini action wobbler (I love those things) and the cheers sentiment was cut and stacked (four time) for added dimension.

Last up is a card for Sugar Pea Designs mix it up challenge SPDMIU#35. I went with the color combination (pink & green) portion of the challenge and included an arched edge on the floral portion to mimic the door and window frames in the image.

I used SPD Talk is Chic stamp set and embossed the sentiment using Versamark and Hero Arts white embossing powder.

Challenge x3

It’s the end of another week and I’m winding down. Back to the grind tomorrow. The weatherman got it wrong today…instead of 85 and sunny it turned out to be 70 (maybe) and cool AND RAINY! It poured rain all night and a good portion of the morning. It was okay though because we had no plans to go out and I did get some new goodies in the mail over the weekend. Perfect day to hang in my craft room and play.  I did make a few cards including a few challenge cards.

I’ll start with a card for the Color Throwdown Challenge ctd439. This week’s colors are: Red, Orange, Purple and Yellow. The bouquet in the challenge photo is gorgeous!


This was one of the new stamp sets I got…it’s called Message in a Bottle from Create a Smile Stamps. Aren’t those little germs cute? I colored the image with Copics then fussy cut the bottle and covered it with SU! Crystal Effects. I used a memory box stencil to add some color before adhering the bottle with foam tape.

Lastly, I made a card for the Casual Fridays color challenge CFC172: Pink, Navy and White.


I used SU! markers to color in the letters. The MISTI makes it super easy to change the letter colors. I also used my MISTI to stamp the bottom half of the sentiment on a curve.
