Goodbye June!!

Hard to believe one whole month of our Summer is already gone!!  I haven't done half of the things that I wanted to accomplish!!!  Time to get busy!

Today I am sharing a quick boy card that I made with an image from The Greeting Farm.  I never seem to have extra boy cards on hand, and I really should pay more attention to the little fellas!!

This little basketball cutie is from the Roll Call Kit, his name is Dylan.

Curly hair is so tricky!!!!  This isn't one of my best attempts, but I
tried to give it some body???  lol!!
A lot of the embellishments on here are from my Paper Issues
Swag Bags.  I love these monthly bags, such a great mix
of items to use!!

Well, I am off to clear up some crafty space for Maddie!  We have decided to dip our toes into the sewing pool.  We made a little pencil pouch over the weekend that ended up being the perfect size for her IPhone and she is over-the-moon happy with it!!  Have a great Monday!!!

Get your Friday on!!!

It's Friday again, and June is practically over!!  Where the heck did it go!!??

Today I am sharing a card with a very old and retired stamp from The Greeting Farm.

This is Pretty Hat Anya.
I love her classy, elegant style!!

I was really happy with the colors I used to color her,
but had quite a challenge when it came time to find papers!!  lol!
Most of the patterned paper came from an old Basic Grey pad.
I had considered chopping off the little dog, only because
I am not so great at coloring animals, but I am glad I left him on!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Annndddd now it's Tuesday.

Just a quick post today of a little Saturated Canary image I have colored up and put on a card!  This little darling is Violet!

I was very lucky to have crocheted these
flowers some time ago, they matched perfectly!!
(I am a sucker for variegated embroidery floss!) 


Her skirt can be a challenge to color, but definitely worth it!

That's all I have for today!!
Thanks for stopping by!!

Good Ol' Saturday!

Happy official first day of Summer!!  A little cloudy here, but my family is determined to go swimming anyhow!!

Today I have a card I made with an old The Greeting Farm stamp that I haven't colored in forever!!  Her name is jade, and she is part of the Roll Call Kit!

Love this kit!!!

Love this hair combo!!
R24, R29, E18.

I had a lot of fun putting this together using
several items from my monthly Swag Bag

This was super simple!  I only used one star die, and the
rest was pre-cut from my swag bag!  I love sequins and I 
could find a place for them anywhere!!!!!

Have a great Summer weekend*****

A Card and it's Box!

Happy Friday everyone!!

I spent some time on my Cameo yesterday, and I remembered that I had two files that make perfect boxes
for A2 cards!  My cards tend to end up on the bulky/thick side, and sometimes an envelope just won't do!

Here's a card I made with A La Mode stamp Picture Perfect!

Both the stamp and flowers on the card and box are

The stitched oval is from Lil Inkers.

The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's 
Hey Girl pad.

I used foam tape to pop up my image a bit, and this flower is kind of tall, so this box was the perfect answer!!

I think I will spend the day whipping up some boxes to have on hand for those bulkier cards!!

Thanks for stopping by!

So Bright!

I am slowly, but surely trying to get back into the groove of things after a bit of an absence.  I had a lot on my plate for a while there and thankfully things are smoothing out a bit.  If you haven't heard from me in a while, please don't take it personally!!  I still love all of my stampy/bloggy friends out there, and hope to catch up with all of you!

Today I am sharing a very bright, kind of 80's vibe card that I made!


This is a Saturated Canary image Jules.
I am not super happy with how her hair turned out,
but she is still pretty cute!



 I also made a bit of an abstract birthday card-

I love the circle shape that came from my Cameo!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Post Father's Day Post

Thought I would post the simple card that I made DH for Father's day.  I think this dino is quite cute, and couldn't resist the sentiment!!

I heat embossed the sentiment, and I had a few darn stray
specks show up afterward!!  (ugghhh!!!)
I used YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, and E41.

I am using this for the Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge!  I love me some Paper Smooches!!
Hope you all are having a wonderful Summer!!
Thanks for stopping by!
