Love you!

Hey there!! I'm excited to share my 2nd post for today, the new Retro Sketch for the week!!
The sketch this week was taken from this super fun card of Arielle's! I love this sketch!! And I even made a real square card!! I know just who it is going to and that makes me so happy!! So, here is the sketch! Isn't it a goodie!?

And here is my take on the sketch!
 I started with a new pad of Dear Lizzy paper, I loved the paper airplane paper--isn't that so fun!? The "love" is from Avery Elle, and the "you" is from Simon Says Stamp. My cute little hearts are from Lawn Fawn.  I was trying to decide what to use as the little underneath layer from the sketch, the recipient will be male, so I needed a masculine option! I pulled out the red paper from the pad and it landed like this on my card--not in this exact spot, but as I saw it laying there I thought it was perfect to just have a big chunk of paper!:) 
It's that time...time to start stock piling the Valentine mail!! I am from a large family and I love getting all sorts of love notes into their mailboxes!! I think there aren't many things better than love notes in the mailbox!!! So, adding this card to my valentine card stash...yay!!
Can't wait to see what you're going to come up with!! This past week there were so many great cards!! I am hoping to get to stop by all your blogs, so link up and let us all see what you create!!

Happy Cake Day!

Well, happy Saturday to you all friends!! Wow, almost the end of January, time is flying for me!! Is it flying for you too!? I feel like I am getting into the groove of 2015, but I still can't write it out!
Today I've got a little monster party card to share with you!! The cute little red monster from TAWS is from the Oogles set, and the pennants and the sentiment are from the Cake Day set!

Thinking of party, I needed some sequins and I made a little shaker window behind the tag. I used my We R Memory Makers envelope board to help me make my bow.
I think I might need more monster birthday cards!! Have a great weekend and see you back in a couple hours for my next post, a fun new Retro Sketch!!

Happy Birthday

Good morning!! Happy Thursday to you all! 

When I found this beautiful floral paper from Heidi Swapp, I knew it had to be mine! You know how that goes, right!? I love the bold colors and the collection of flowers is so lovely!

Today I am sharing more from the Bubbly stamp set from TAWS. This bold font is so inviting!! Today I colored it in simply with copics! Easy peasy and pretty quick. I also used the Rock Solid sentiment set for the Happy Birthday. There are a few clear sequins 3mm and 4mm sized tossed on there and that is a quick and fun birthday card!!
Now, speaking of Happy Birthday, I need to announce the winner of my TAWS birthday give away!! The winner of the "Give Thanks" stamp set is Lindsey, comment #31! Lindsey, please shoot me an email and let me know your mailing address!! Congrats girl!!

Thanks to all of you for joining in the birthday bash with me!! I hope you've scored some great finds from TAWS with the discount code! Hope you have a great weekend!! Stay tuned for a few new products and a new Retro Sketch this weekend!!

Good morning friends!! Hope you are doing well! I  am popping in with a TAWS Flashback! This year the design team are all making monthly flashback cards, using sets that are older than three months! I love this and am super exited!!
My card is made with the Stomper and Livin' Fossils sets.
I pulled out some fun valentine paper, used my PTI notebook paper die and then colored my loveosaurus with copics. He is holding a little wooden heart.

I love this dino!! He was one was being released when I first started designing with TAWS, so I super love this set!:) 
I hope you have a great day friends!! If you haven't commented on this post, for the Give Thanks stamp set giveaway, you have until tomorrow night to do so!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Saturday friends!! I hope you are doing well! We have been enjoying such wonderful weather the past couple of days, it's hard to remember that it's January! I can't complain one little bit! I think the bright sunshine might have been the driving force behind my color choices for the card today!

Here is the new Retro Sketch for the week! Based on this card by Tracey!

And here is my card for the sketch!
I used a stencil and distress inks for the backgound...then made a window for my sequins! I stamped on the transparency with black stazon and then attached the yellow happy to the window. I filled the window with sequins and beads and such...a party little window!!:) I cut a few little balloons and added some gold twine for the strings on the balloons....

I hope you have a great weekend!! Thanks for playing along and have a great week!! Can't wait to see your take on the sketch for the week!!

Love you!

Is "love" in the air around your house yet!? I love Valentine's it!! I am excited to give this particular card!! I love the new Bubbly set, it has so many possibilities!!
I used some delicious Avery Elle pigment ink--and beautiful matching paper-for this card. If you haven't tried that ink, it's delicious!! And that is coming from a "non-pigment" using person!!
I paired the large chunky font with a pretty little "you" die from Simon Says Stamp.
Nice and clean and totally an "ok" guy type valentine, don't you agree!? Thanks for stopping by today...see you soon!! Be sure to stop back for the new Retro Sketch for the week!! See you in a few!

I miss your face!

Morning friends!! I hope you are well! I am excited to share a bit of TAWS joy today. I just LOVE the new Oogles set, I think you might be aware of that by now;)...
This card just kind of "happened" and it makes me so happy!! I pulled out some delicious Hero Arts inks...that cute "furry" monster image and went to town!!

The sentiment, another of my favorites of all time, is from the More than Words set.
