Hi All!

Here is my take on the sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary this week. I love these sketch challenges and seeing everyone’s interpretations of them. You should join in the fun!

Happy Birthday Wishes1

For this card I used Night of Navy card stock with Flowerpot Designer Series Paper. The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs set.

Close Up1

The Whisper White card stock was a bit too white so I stamped first using the cool honeycomb looking stamp from the new Butterfly Basics set first in Lost Lagoon and then I stamped “happy birthday wishes” in Night of Navy.

The flower is from the Flower Frenzy Bigz L die. I love what this thing can do. Doesn’t that flower look full? Only took one spin of the Bigshot! I just layered two small pieces of cardstock  onto the die and ran it through. I like to use it on scrap pieces of card stock. You can never go wrong with a flower!

Can you tell a difference in this last picture and the first? Something was driving me crazy and I finally decided what it was and made a switcharoo. Tell me if you can see what I changed! 😉


Oh Happy Day

Happy Day


Hey Hey, Happy Day To YOU! This card in my rendition of a cute card I found on Pinterest by Chiaki Haverstick.  Naturally I made mine pink! I used the Delicate Doilies stamp set and I added a vintage designer button and some bling with the rhinestones.  In a previous post I mentioned missing the scalloped ribbon. Boy howdy, I sure do. Luckily, I am a hoarder and have a stock pile! 😉

While most of the things aren’t in the current catalog it doesn’t stop me from using them! I enjoy every craft tool, paper, ink, and embellishment that I have! Just ask my husband! ha! 😀

Hope you have a great St. Patrick’s Day today!

Hey Hey, guess who had some extra time to play today?! I’m playing along with the Techno Stamper Lunchtime Challenge (

For this sketch I used the stamp set Itty Bitty Banners along with the coordinating framelits. Naturally I went with Melon Mambo as my base. The belt in the middle is a layer on top of the Basic Black and Modern Medley DSP. The picture doesn’t show that it’s layered for some reason. Photographer error I’m sure! My flower is from the Blossom and Pansy punches and dazzled up with a Vintage Faceted button.

OOOPS! Forgot to mention the card stock is embossed with the Modern Mosaic folder. I think it ties in nicely with the DSP. Again, the detail is not pictured very well. I’m going to have to have a talk with my photographer. Tee-hee! 😉
