Let Them Eat Cake


Hey Hey! It’s that time again… SKETCH CHALLENGE at Create With Connie and Mary. Yeah!  It is a fun one this week. You can twist it, turn it, flip it; anything goes! Come play along!! Here is my take:


I needed some Melon Mambo in my life. There was a time in the distant past where I would of never paired pink and orange but those days are over. I really think they compliment each other without fighting for attention!

See that beautiful butterfly?! I am going to miss it dearly. If I had a top 10 list of things I am going to miss most the Beautiful Wings Embosslits would be on there. I have used that thing too many times to count!


Thanks for stopping by! Hope you get a chance to get creative this week. Stamp yourself on over to Create with Connie and Mary here!

Good Ol’ Betsy


Happy Spring Everybody!

As I type this I am sitting in the backyard trying to soak up some rays while they last! Aren’t the colors on this card springy?! This is a CASE card that I just love.The original designer is Amanda Mertz (www.didyoustamptoday.blogspot.com). I just changed up some of the colors, sentiment, and ribbon.

I kept with the Crumb Cake but used Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, and of course Melon Mambo! I used Sassy Salutations for the sentiment and popped it off with the Daffodil Delight Stitched Ribbon.

At my next event our guest star will be none other than the lovely Betsy… Betsy’s Blossoms that is. We are going to be focusing on good ol’ Betsy, so my next few posts on here will be made with that stamp set. Stay tuned for more! 🙂

Mellow Yellow


To me this card screams spring and sunshine and I could sure use it on a cold and dreary day like today! I decided to play along with Mojo Monday (http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/).

The base of this card is Basic Gray and I used three shades of yellow, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry. The DSP is Polka Dot Parade and the sentiment is from the “Oh, Hello” set. I’m loving the rhinestones and velum butterfly! And I went old school, that crackle stamp under the sentiment is a SU background stamp from 2005!
