I've got a couple to share with you today.

Out on a Limb

Hello!

Last week I ordered a few new goodies from the MFT release and I was thrilled to have two days off in a row this week to get inky!

I can't seem to put this Out on a Limb set down ;)

Here are a few cards I created over the past couple of days using it.

This first one was created for two challenges. The Sweet Sunday Sketch and the Paper Players theme of a masculine birthday.

This next one I created for my husband who's my rock and always there for me

This next one is from the SCS sketch this week.

This last one uses the Freshly Made Sketch. I used a circle rather than a tag for my focal point.

Happy September!

Well hello and happy September!

Sorry it's been so long since I last posted. Thank you to many of you for the emails asking if all was okay and letting me know you missed seeing my cards.
Those emails totally make my day!!

I'll share several cards that I've created over the past month. 
Not a lot of free time to stamp but I've managed to sneak into my craft room a few times :)

First up is a card I created for a Paper Players Challenge - Kids birthday and I combined it with a SCS challenge - stencilling.
Stamps: Birthday GreetingsPaper: Mixed Media Paper, BlackInk: Distress inks, Black

Next is a card I created for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch.
Stamps: MFTPaper: White, Black, MME dpInk: Memento black, Pool PartyAccessories: Copics, Dimensionals

Now a card that I created for another SCS challenge called Spritz or Spray.
I created my background by squiggling distress markers on a clear block then misting with water before pressing it onto my watercolour paper. I also sprayed water directly on the paper and used a piece of paper towel to pull of some colour.

Celebrate Your Special Day - Dare To Get Dirty

Hi :)

I love every summer when Splitcoast Stampers hosts the Dare To Get Dirty Challenges.
This year I was too busy to participate along as a member of the Dirty Dozen Alumni :(
I still can't believe I was ever chosen to be a part of that team back in 2008!
Wow so long ago!

Anyway, I was able to make the card below for SIX different Dare To Get Dirty challenges.
I'm having so much fun with my distress inks lately!

Always Believe In Yourself

Half way through summer :(

Why does this season feel like it zips by so quickly? LOL!
Wish I could slow it down a little!

Last week I had a few minutes to play along with a MFT sketch and I used a colour palette that I'd come across on Pinterest a little while ago.
Such a fresh colour combo!


Stamps: Chalkboard Greetings TooPaper: Natural white, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Green, BrownInk: BlackAccessories: MFT dies, enamel dots, sewing, dimensionals

You

Hello!!

Gosh it feels like forever since I've posted. Things have been super busy around here but that's summer right? 
We are having such fabulous weather this year. It's hard to stay inside.

Once fall comes winter is right behind and that's when I spend most of my time indoors stamping ;)

Today is Chloe's 15th birthday and we are thinking of heading out to the parks to enjoy the sunshine while hanging out together!

Here is a card I created a few months ago that I found had not been posted here. It was from the Deconstructed Sketch #150 in early May.


Here is a card I created for the MFT sketch #185 a couple of weeks ago.
Stamps: Just The Way You ArePaper: White, Echo Park DPInk: BlackAccessories: Copics, Circle Nesties, Dimensionals

A Rainbow Is A Promise

Happy Tuesday!!

I haven't stamped in ages or at least it feels that way. Work really has been getting in the way lately. Bummer.
Maybe tonight or tomorrow I'll sneak into my craft room.

I used a variety of cardstock scraps and dies to create this fun card!
