just DILL with it ~

I ordered this stamp last week and received it today in the mail.  I knew exactly what paper I was going to use, and of course it had to include the baker's twine too!

Quirky Qwerty ~

Thursday, February 26, 2015

I've been such a slacker this week, I figured I'd better get something on here for I pulled out an embossing folder stamped paper I had for the background, and made this simple but fun card!  My mojo is on the couch, so I think I'll go join it ;)

Today another card from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kit from August, I think.  I still have a bit more to use up in this one, and I am determined to use every piece of it!

Cherry Blossoms ~

Monday, February 23, 2015

There isn't anything that says Spring more than a cherry blossom tree, and I know some of would love to see Spring come early this year!  This card was made at sweet little Stampin' Up get together yesterday.  Thanks gals for a fun time!

All Shook Up ~

Saturday, February 21, 2015

Part of my happy Saturday has consisted of finally making the Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kit for December called All Shook Up...woot, woot!!
The kit makes 9 cards, 3 of each sentiment, and the only thing I did different was that I mounted them onto some thicker white cardstock and finished off the inside a bit more too.  I'm not happy unless my card weighs at least 5 lbs!
Such pretty colors, which just happen to be from the 2013-2015 In Color set, that are all me!  Love them!

More Symbols of February with Hambo ~

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

It's mid-February already and that means more inspiration for our monthly challenge at the Hambo Hoedown, which is "Symbols of February" which means we're looking for things like 
Purple (Feb Birthstone is Amethyst) 
Violets (Feb's flower) 
Fishes/Water (The Zodiacs are Aquarius until the 18th and Pisces from the 19th on.)

I found a free digital vintage violet download, and used the always adorable Bailey Flower digital stamp, to create a February birthday card for a co-worker of mine.

There's still time for you to join us!!

Just Dance ~

Since the cold/flu crud has caught up with me I sure don't feel like dancing, but these little gals make me smile inside so it helps just a little bit!

Happy Valentine's Day ~

My guy went all traditional red for me this year, and who can resist that?!  How about some red velvet cupcakes too...
I hope you too get to spend the day with those you love!

Valentine Subway Art ~

Thursday, February 12, 2015

A quick one on this Friday-Eve for ya today, using some subway art from Create with TLC.  She has lots of different ones in her shop over there too.  The background DP is more from the awesome set from CTMH called Heartstrings.

Have a fabulous day! 


Lola, lo lo lo Lo-la... ~

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

Such a pretty gal, and she's all ready to go out on the town!  I think I got all of the Lola images, when they were available, and I just adore them.  There are tons more things at Pink Petticoat now, and they too find a home on my computer!

If a gal likes pink camo, she gets pink camo on her birthday.  This was made especially for an awesome co-worker!

Flowers of true Friendship never fade ~

Saturday, February 7, 2015

Finally, the third card made at The Occasional Artist using 3 different stamps.  The background on the light pink was also stamped.  I did add the polka dot paper and twine to it, but this is certainly a feel good card that any friend would love!

Three Hearts ~

Friday, February 6, 2015

Here is the second card we made at the Occasional Artist this month.  This is just two different stamps (the heart stamped 3 times) but the simplicity of it and the colors sure do make for a very cute Valentine.  Of course the sparkly goodness makes it just that much more sweet!  With different colors, this could be a great wedding card too, don't you think?

Yesterday I said I'd have two cards for you today, but I just couldn't get a good pic of the third one. So that means you'll just have to come back tomorrow and visit!

Happy Friday!!!!

Road Map to Happiness ~

Thursday, February 5, 2015

I had another wonderful evening at The Occasional Artist making this month's Valentine theme of cards.  This is one of them, showing the glitter and shine framing this fabulous sentiment.  I have two others as well that I will share with you tomorrow.  Happy Friday-Eve!

Symbols of February ~

Wednesday, February 4, 2015

 It's time for the new challenge at the Hambo Hoedown and this time it's Symbols of February; Meaning Purple for birthstone (amethyst), Violets (for the flower), and anything water or fishy (Pisces and Aquarius are the zodiacs).  If you tell me I can use purple on a card, which just happens to be my favorite color, well that's just what I'm going to use!  Couldn't you just hug this adorable Beast?  Join in on the fun for a chance to win some stamps of your own!

Hello, is it me you're looking for?....haha, remember that Lionel Richie song?  Anyhoo, I've just got a simple note card today using up some vintage Stampin' Up papers.

An Old Favorite ~

Monday, February 2, 2015

I've used this digital stamp many ways over the last couple of years, and it is a true favorite of mine.  I happened to find an old one tucked in between some things, so I fluffed it up a bit, and she's ready for 2015!
