Happy Almost Summer Friends!

I am writing with a wee bit of a sunburn but I LOVE it! This week is another fun sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary. I gravitated towards Blackberry Bliss this time. Here is my take on the sketch:

Heart

My sentiment is from the Petite Pairs set. Most of the card stock I used on this card is from my scrap pile, including the punched flower and top square on the left.  I tell you, I save EVERYTHING! It was already embossed from prior projects and I just put the pieces together.

Happy Hump Day!

Hello fellow crafters! I’ve got a new card for you. I finally got the Hardwood background stamp and was itching to use it. I stamped it in craft white and applied it to the new Blackberry Bliss card stock. The sentiment is from the Something To Say stamp set and the flowers on the tag are from the coordinating punch set.

I LOVE the burlap ribbon. I am such a pack rat and save every scrap. I had a tiny piece of ribbon that was really too small to use (this did not stop me from keeping it!) so I tore it in shreds and tied it around the Hello Honey ribbon.

The flower on the bottom right was made using the Pansy and Petite Petals punches. Think I’m flower happy? Oh yeah! 😉

Happy Memorial Day. It has been a nice and relaxing weekend but my family and I know and remember why we celebrate this holiday. We thank all that have served and are currently serving. What a privilege it is to be an American!

It has been awhile since I joined in on a challenge and I thought I’d try the Pals Paper Arts. Here is the sketch Challenge. You can join along at: www.palspaperarts.com.

Anywho, I started with the three strips of paper on the right added my sentiment and then decided that I hated it! So I started to rip the strips up and I sat back and thought “wow, those really look like the noise makers you see at birthday parties”… So I decided to roll them up a little further and voila! I left them. I thought they went with the sentiment of the card. A wee bit of a celebration. 🙂 The Gorgeous Grunge under the sentiment reminded me of confetti and I just went with it!

I hope you like it. I am really enjoying these new in colors!

Sneak Peek Goodies! YEAH!!

Alas, the new goodies are here! Of course I dove in right away. I do believe that the Blackberry Bliss is my new favorite in color. There is just something about that deep purple! It seems to change color when the light hits it. If I had to guess, I would say this color is going to be big this fall.

For this card I used the Moonlight DSP stacks. There are 48 sheets in each stack and it is ONLY $6.95! The stamped image and the layer behind it are from the same paper collection. There is a wide variety of color and patter and they’re all cute! The sentiment is from the new Say Something stamp set. This set really has a little something for every event and it has a coordinating punch set which I used for the flowers on the banner. Look for the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack when you get your catalog.
