Reverse Confetti SFYTT

Loving the sketch for this month and I just recieved the ballons set in with some goodies I bought from Simon Say Stamps. I love these balloons and happy to say I have a few birthdays on the agenda and many of them will be getting cards with these awesome balloons on them :). Here is the sketch for this month.

And here is my card based on the above sketch. I am loving these birthday papers from Echo Park and very excited to see RC bring out patterned paper (of which I am a bit of a hoarder) Oh and inks and cardstock too :)

Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge

Sunday, September 4, 2016

For today's card I opted to go with the tick tack toe option and used the Ribbon Red and Scallops to design my card with. Here is the sketch and tick tack toe chart for this week

This card is going to a friend for her birthday and she loves roses so I had to be using the beautiful Rosy Posy Set of course. Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day goes well.

A heartfelt Thank-you for a dear friend

Today I made a card for an amazing friend who has been a rock to me since the passing of my husband. Friendships are the most precious of gifts and my father was so right when he told me that true friends are like diamonds...............rare and precious. I am loving water colouring and Penny Black have so many beautiful new releases that lend themselves to this :). Today I used my distress markers to water colour this beautiful floral stamp. I can see this one being inked often.

I am entering this card into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge September Nature
and the Simon Says Anything goes challenge as well

Share Joy Challenge

Tuesday, August 30, 2016

I am so excited for the new release coming up at Taylored Expression in a few days and I can smell the smoke off my credit card already LOL. It has been a little while since I played in the Share Joy Challenge but it is one I love and I really enjoyed putting this card together today. I chose to play along with the sketch.

For this card I used the Oops a Daisy Stamp set (love this set) and some gorgeous papers from Heidi Swap called favourite things...........the papers are all so scrummy. Thanks for dropping by today!

Reverse Confetti August Sketch

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

I am trying to get a few more masculine cards in my pile as I often fall short of them. I adore the seaside stamps and dies that were released prior to August and thought I would use them for the sketch this month..........Here is this months sketch

I love this set and know that I will be making more cards with it, especially since KaiserCraft just recently released some amazing nautical goodies which include the anchor embossing folder and paper used on this card

Viva la Verve August Sketch 2

Loving the second sketch for this month and I think it is another that I will come back to for future cards. I cannot wait for the new release to be available Friday, adore the new floral set and think it will be at the very top of my list :)
Here is the second sketch

Here is my card based on the above sketch, I love this set Poppy Birthday and often head to it especially for birthday cards. Thanks for stopping by today, may you be blessed with time to craft and good coffee :)

Verve August Diva Inspiration Challenge

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Gorgeous colours and lots of wonderful inspiration from the Diva's make playing this challenge fun. I went through my KaiserCraft paper stash and found some papers that line up with the Challenge colours. Having a Kaiser Craft outlet so close is not a good thing and I think even the best of paper hoarders would be shocked by the stash I have tucked away :). 
Thank for dropping by today and as always I wish your day full of crafting and good coffee
