To a deer friend

Hello There I've got a very fun card to share with you today.  I love how this card turned out! I created a scene with the super cute Lawn Fawn stamp set "Toboggan Together".  I just can't get enough of Lawn Fawn these days, so cute and I'd love to create with every stamp set.

So I finally got around to using this set which is new to me and was able to create this fun scene. I don't usually create this detailed a scene but I've been so inspired by other crafters cards and wanted to try.  I blended the background with My Favorite Things "After Midnight" Hybrid ink and the moon is My Favorite Things "Banana Split" Hybrid ink.  The two dear from the stamp set are colored with my copic markers.  The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.  For the grass I used My Favorite Things grassy Fields Die-namics.  Last but not least to create the trees I recycled a Kleenex box that had this pattern on it.

Thanks "Penguin Style"

I'm excited to share this super cute card with you that I created with the set from My Favorite Things "Penguins in Paradise"  I used some MFT hybrid ink as well to create the blended circle background. I used three different colors which are Banana Split, Chocolate Brown and After Midnight. The Palm trees are from Lawn Fawns "Critters from the Past" stamp set.  The sentiment is die cut from an older sizzix die. The penguin and sentiment are colored with my copic markers and I added the sparkle with a clear wink of Stella pen to finish it off.

I made this card in my mind for my Husbands grandparents.  We just went on vacation to visit them and they live on the lake. So I gave this card to them as a thank you for letting us visit them and stay with them.  I thought it was fitting and cute as they live on the lake. I said to them "if a penguin came to visit you it might look like this". Fun times. I hope you're having a great summer, be safe and soar up the sun as summer's almost coming to an end.

Happy happy birthday Gerber daisy

Hello there I recently made this card for my husband's grandmother on her birthday.  I love how this card turned out with the red. 

Unfortunately I was unable to find a link to the stamp used but Simon Says Stamp sells another great Gerber daisy die from My Favourite Things that would work great to create this look too.

Happy Birthday to YOU! *Action Wobble*

Hello I've got a recent card to share with you today on the blog that I made for a friend's birthday.

I had a lot of fun making this card.  My friend and I have an inside joke where I give him gold stars so I created this birthday card for him with more gold stars. The giant middle star moves with an action wobble.

New Home

Hello and Happy Thursday to you!

 I made this card recently for some friend's of ours who moved into a new home.  I love how this card turned out.

I loved building the home and creating the scene with Simon Says stamp love makes a home stamp and dies.  I used my copic markers to color in the house I created.  The sun is from a random stamp I had in my stash and the new home key sentiment is also a old stamp I had in my stash.

I really need to post more on the blog.  I've made a lot that I haven't posted yet. I really want to be more active and participate in challenges again and post more regulary.  I am making cards but I am also working on several other crafty projects too. My newest project is a busy book for my son Riley.  I'll have to post pictures of that when I'm done.  

Love Makes a Home

The best friendships are steeped in love

This is a fun card I created just for fun.  It features a sentiment from "My Favourite Things" Pure Innocence steeped in love set.  The die cut is from cottage cutz I'm not sure if it's still available. I love how fun and sweet this card turned out.

Graduation cards 2016

I made these back in June for high school graduation time.  These could also be used for college graduates that finish up their schooling in April.  Though there might also be other school programs that finish at other times.  I just wanted to get them posted though so they were not forgotten.

I'm going to try and post Moreno here for sure and stay up to date.
