have a lovely day

well I'm not in love with how this one turned out
I went for a nature looking card but it seems kinda.... flat?
hummm, may need to tweek this one a bit more when I have time


these are my two favorite Washi tapes
Bird & Sentiment stamps - Unity Stamp Company
Ink - Memento Rich Coca
coral colored cardstock - core'dinations
Kraft - Canvas Corp


a vintage stroll

I love love love this stamp from Stamper's Best/Deep Red
it's just so peaceful


this gorgeous paper from Authentique is called Peaceful
Distressing Ink - Tim Holtz Shabby Shutters
Ribbon, Vine & Flower - May Arts Ribbons
Metal Heart & cardstocks - misc stash

My inspiration came from Sketch Saturday #369
yep, I rotated it and traded out the tiny star for a fairly large flower/heart/vine thing

so many ways to say

Thank You

I would like to say Thank You to Sandy and all those "behind the scenes" people at
Operation Write Home
for all their work over the years!

I used sketch (#258) to create this


Isn't that paper beautiful? It's from Graphic45 called French Country
The little Bird stamp is from Unity Stamp Company
Distressing Ink - Tim Holtz Black Soot

Celebrate Life

sometime we all need a little reminder
and a little uplifting

Celebrating with Creative Chick

Big party time... TEN YEARS
wahoooooo

So Jenn asked us to CASE a creation of hers and wow! that was really hard to do, finding just one
but actually I found three and had to force myself on which to start with
I think the hardest part was I went in knowing I'd be using what I have in my paint room
not all of my crafty stash. But then once I decided,
this one came together fairly easily once I decided which sentiment I wanted


I really like how this turned out!
I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mermaid Lagoon
Heart Stamps & Sentiment from Unity Stamp Company
a little clear embossing powder (somehow I do not have black? what!)
plus a few sequins

and here is Jenn's Original Post that I CASE'd
so I discovered that I MUST have this hello stamp or something similar with "hello"
because I'd use that thing all the time

and since Jenn enjoys the kitterfluffs, I thought she might appreciate a little Checkers luvs

Mojo Monday 405


Wahoo, I played along with a sketch tonight! YES! lol
I know I sound like a crazy person but if you could see my stuff, you would understand my problems in my little card making world, don't even get me started on my lack of scrapbooking... so.far.behind. (not normal in my world)
ok ok but yay, I played along and I made this card for my very best friend in the world
we've been friends since we were 12
(a really really long time)
She got some very sad news today and her life is going to be tough for a while
but I'm here for her, just as I have always been
I'm like a rock
ok that got weird



I love the diagonal band across the sketch!



These cute & fun printed papers are from Echo Park's So Happy Together 6x6 pad

Stamp Set is Unity Stamp Company KOM 
{Warmth of Winter}

Flower from Prima

and that yellow band is actually Pearlescent Cardstock from Colorbok, gives it that little extra umph that every card should have

Ink is Tim Holtz Abandoned Coral

it's all about Love... and Unity

that would be Unity Stamp Company!
because it's Friday which means Friends with Flair, which I finally made time for again

this one had a scary-bad phase then I finally hit the OMGosh I love it stage so I stopped ;-)

I stated out with Top Boss & UTEE, topped that with Gelatos in Metallic Mint & Acqua Dolce which I smeared around with my finger, sprayed with water until it dripped then sprayed again

Last I splattered with black paint

The LOVE stamp is Unity's Big Inspiration Big Words



Last time I was at Hobby Lobby, they had Tim Holtz on 30% off sale and they had these three of his new ink pad colors so I snagged them! mermaid lagoon, abandoned coral & cracked pistachio



and some sequins to finish it off
