Hello and Happy Monday! I adore this stamp set from CTMH called Everyday Life.  I've got a few more Valentine's to complete and get in the mail this week!

All papers and stamps CTMH!

Peace & Luv,
If you don't know what else to say on a card, how about this?  I've always liked this set of papers from CTMH, and have been coveting them since you can't get them anymore.  I discovered several CTMH blogs and ideas, and my inspiration for this card is here.  It's time to use up the great papers I have to make way for the all of the fantastic new products in the catalog that just came out!

All papers, cardstock and the stamp set are from CTMH!

Peace & Luv,

Hello and Happy Monday! I found a tutorial that I just had to try and I'm very pleased with the outcome.  At work we had lots of crayons donated and so I was on Pinterest (of course), and found how to melt them in a silicone baking pan.  It worked like a dream and I was able to make 6 of them with a box of 24 crayons, glitter, and twine.  The plan is to sell these as a fundraiser.

Here are the rest of the colors:

I'm not sure how that little bit of purple got in there, but I'm glad it did!

Thanks so much to Heather at WhipperBerry and
Have an awesome Day!

Peace & Luv,

Another quick you ask?...15 minutes...bam!!!
I used pretty much all of the same things I did yesterday, except I added a corrugated star from Close to My Heart, some twine and a button.  I'm on a roll here, but now I need to get in the shower and get to work.  I hope it doesn't bust my mojo!  Have a great day!

Peace & Luv,
Ok, so I'm in a blue/green mood this week...anyway, I found in my stash this pre-glittered card, and then I found the sketch contest over on Mojo Monday.  So basically I used the card, one piece of paper of the Whimsy Stack from DCWV (cut very strategically), and one piece of cardstock from Stampin' Up/Tempting Turquoise.  I added the rhinestones, and I used a couple of circle Nesties, oh and the wish sentiment is a stamp from Heidi Grace.  Easy, sparkly, and simple, ya?!

Peace & Luv,
Happy New Year!  I wanted to make a New Year card for my honey and I also went to see The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and so the two thoughts came together to make this!  I read the books and saw the swedish versions of all 3 of the books, and so I naturally couldn't wait to see what Hollywood did with it.  I wasn't disappointed, and even though it was 2 hours and 40 minutes, I still didn't want it to end.  If you get the chance, and you like that kind of film, you're going to love it.  Looking at Daniel Craig wasn't hard on the eyes either!

Cardstock: Bazzill

My Favorite Thing: The sweet dragon!
