Miss You...

Morning all!! Happy almost weekend! And here in the states we've got a long weekend!! All sorts of fun to be had!! I hope you have a great one!!

I saw this USA Map die, from Frantic Stamper and knew it had to be mine! I just L.O.V.E. love it! I have had this card in my mind since I got the die and am so happy to know that this card is not only finished, but it is in the mail, on it's way to a mailbox in FL!

I don't live near any of either side of our family so we miss people in a lot of different states!! My daughter went through and told me, "we need to make one with a heart in..." so we've got several more of these to go!!

I cut the die with white cardstock and then mounted it on my cardbase with foam tape. I added a couple of gold foil hearts, cut with a SSS die. The miss you is from PTI Mat Stack 3 stamp set.

Super CAS, and easy enough to make the multiples we will be sending in the coming days!!

Hope your weekend is great!! Take care!

What's Up?

Hey there!! It's been a busy week!! I was excited to finally get a little bit of time to get to my desk!

I SO love these little fish from the Gill Friend set, um, I can't really stop with them!!
I decided to use the Retro Sketch for this week again, to make my card. I lined up those cute little fish. My sentiment was from the Yappy sentiment.

I hope you all have a great day!! Take care and make it a great one!!

Missing You

Good morning again! Post #2 for me today!! I'm really excited about sharing today!! The new Retro Sketch for this week is a super fun one! I loved this sketch!!
I of course had to rotate the sketch a little....and here is my card!

I am so happy that I finally got the Altenew Vintage Flowers set!! I don't know if you love them like I do, but I LOVE them!! I have been patiently waiting for them to get back in stock everywhere--and my heart was so happy when the appeared in the mailbox this week!! They could be my favorite floral images yet....
I used a super light pink--positively pink from SU for my first layer of pink, then Hibiscus Burst, then Raspberry Fizz for the third layer of pink. Oh, I love them. It took a couple of tries to get the images lined up--but using my MISTI really helped. And, with a little practice, it got easier to line up. For the leaf images I used all SU ink--Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive and Always Artichoke. I have to say, I'm in LOVE!! I sat down and made a whole set of cards--I'll share them Monday!
My Missing You is from Altenew Label love set...stamped with versafine and embossed with clear embossing that set!!
I hope you will play with us at the Retro Sketch this week!! Take care and see you soon!

Hey there!!

Hey there friends!! Happy Saturday. Hope you're having a great weekend! I've got a fun little something to share. I needed a masculine card for a younger boy--and I thought this walrus would fit the bill!! 
 I used a super simple sketch for my card, I actually used the CAS(E) sketch for the week. I used the MFT "snow drifts" border die to make a little rocky spot for him to sit. The sentiment is from the Calypso set and the little speech bubble image is from Cake Day.
I hope you have a great weekend!! We've got some baseball and basketball today...SO fun!! I'll be back with the new Retro Sketch soon!! Stay tuned!

Eye Adore You

Hello there!! Happy Friday! Today is a busy day, the end of the school year is upon us! Assemblies, concerts, games, t-ball, gymnastics...Oh, the fun!!
I am popping in quickly with a little Flashback from the fun TAWS set Oogles!

We made this card for my daughter's teacher, who really enjoys "punny" sayings...and she loved this one!! I pulled out a pretty pink posh die, it's my favorite stitched banner die! I used a past Sweet Sunday Sketch for my layout...always love those sketches!!

I love you a ton

Hey there and happy Thursday! I've got more sea creature love to share today.
I don't know about you, but these sea creatures are taking up a bunch of space in my heart!!! I just love them!! I pulled these cuties from the All Washed Up and Little Fellas sets.
I "smooshed" my tag, with some distress ink. I tell you, being patient and letting the water color dry on it's own is SO hard....but oh, it's so fun!! After the tag was dry, I added my sentiment. I colored my images then fussy cut them. I added a little strip of patterned paper behind and then a sprinkling of sequins...
Hope you week is going well!! It's been a busy one for me! I can not believe that the school year is winding down!! Oh, my!! Take care and see you tomorrow!!

Good morning!! I hope your weekend was great--my sweet kids and husband spoiled me and helped me have a fantastic wonderful weekend!!

I am just popping in quickly to share this fun card!! I received the Calypso set from The Alley Way Stamps, and oh, my I LOVE it!!
I used my MISTI tool and my beautiful Avery Elle inks to make this lovely rainbow background...I added a couple strips of black cardstock. My rainbow panel is popped up with foam tape, so it has some fun dimension. Yes, I used that fun Congrats die from Frantic Stamper again--it's perfect for the fun kids that need a good pat on the back for graduating!!

I am also linking up to the Simon Says Stamp "Sentimental" challenge!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Take care and see you soon!!
