Happy 7th Birthday!

Hello again~

Well this is the last of my posting blast! I do hope everyone has a wonderful and Merry Christmas!

Yesterday I shared a card for a girl, and today I have a cute card for a special guy turning 7.
I had fun with lots of pattern mixing here. I love all the fun and bright colors. The airplane is from Reverse Confetti Here We Go. The 7 is a chipboard that I had in my stash. I had to photograph at night, so the colors are not coming through like I would like.
I used a background stamp from PTI to add a fun little pattern to the center of the circle. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

I am sharing over at Tuesday Morning Sketches - Anything Goes. 

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2018!

Happy 11th Birthday

Hey again,

My blog doesn't know what to do with pretty much a year of no activity and posting several days in a row and another post tomorrow! It felt good to get creative again!

I have a card for a sweet girl who will be turning 11.
The stamped images are from Practicing Creativity which is no longer in business. I die-cut the 11th and added to a pink heart chipboard I had in my stash.

I used Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine to the top of the tag embellished with a sweet pink paper rose. (I absolutely love Trendy Twine's beautiful colors)
I just love the colors and pattern mixing! 

I am playing along at Tuesday Morning Sketches-Anything Goes...this is fun for them. I think they do this once a year.

I hope you have a GREAT day!

May each new day ease the burden of your sorrow

Good day!

I woke up yesterday to find out a dear friend lost her Dad unexpectedly, so after just making a sympathy card the day before for another similar situation I find myself at my desk again for the same reason two days in a row. Sad...

I was limited on time with everything going on this time of year, so I just used pieces from the same paper pad I used yesterday and went to work.

I had this base already cut on my's a very pretty blue...I thought soft and soothing...I embossed with a folder that I felt complimented the pretty image that provided a subtle background for the focal sentiment.

I found my inspiration at Crazy 4 Challenges select a sketch. I went with 386.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Thinking of you with Deepest Sympathy


Long time no share! Life is just tracking along (faster than I care for), so it leaves no time for things that I miss so like craftying.

I do create for things here and there, but haven't posted them...unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card and thought I would pop this on here.

I used a sketch from Sunday Stamps for inspiration and this card was completed in 10 minutes which is huge for me.  I had a very small window of opportunity, so I went for it.

I love this willow tree! It's one of my favorite images and I have a lot!:))) I had scraps laying on my desk from a previous make and I used all those and it came together quickly. I distressed the edges for some added texture.

Here is the inspiration from Sunday Stamps.

I am also sharing at Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes

I hope everyone has a Terrific Tuesday!
