I'm still here!

... sort of!

Some of you may guessed why I've been MIA the last 2 weeks... Our baby girl made her (very speedy) arrival on April 10th!

Please meet the newest addition to our family- Madison! ♥♥♥



I hope to get back to some crafty-ness sometime soon! (I can hear my craft room calling out my name every time I walk by ;)) Once we figure out a routine that works out with this lil one and her BIG bro!

Happy Weekend!

Thanks!

A quick card to share a Thank You card my mom asked me to make...

I paired Avery Elle's Petals & Stems with the Thanks diecut from Mama Elephant, finished off with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and came up with this!

Thanks

I just love these colorful doilies I found at Michaels too, I wanted to keep the card clean and simple and the doily made it easy to throw in a pop of color!

Hope you are having a fabulous week!

Happy Spring Abby!

Still on baby waiting mode... 6 days until my due date! and my mojo is on it's way on vacation...

I'm trying to stay crafty to keep my mind busy until "D-day"... so when I saw the newest Simon Says Stamp flickr challenge is watercolor as well as the new Wednesday Challenge- April Showers bring Spring Flowers, I just had to play along!

This is my first time watercoloring a 'person' I definitely still need some more practice (and possibly some more skin tone inks!) but I love this new Abby's Spring Showers stamp set- she's so sweet!

Happy Spring Abby!

Hope you are all finally enjoying some Spring weather where-ever you are!

Thanks for stopping by!

I Ruff You!

Happy Saturday friends!

Squeezing in a bit of blogging while I still have the time.  We're officially on baby watch as I am almost a week from my due date! YIKES! So far, it doesn't feel like she's ready to make her debut yet! LOL

So just a quick to share some cute mini cards I made using some of the colored images from Kathy of The Daily Marker's 30 Day Coloring Challenge!

I recently received some new Hero Arts goodies thanks to a prize winning and just had to color them up right away. I thought these cute pups (from the new Playful Animals set) would make cute little mini cards that I could have my sister sneak into my nieces' lunch boxes- hope they are surprised ;)

I ruff you


Thanks for stopping by...

{Dino} Easter Egg Wreath!

Couldn't let this week pass by without sneaking in another Easter card!

I love seeing festive holiday wreaths hanging year round and while browsing Pinterest and my blog reader came up with this fun idea for an Easter card!

Using the Spring/Easter theme and colors from the latest Sparkle & Shine Challenge's inspiration photo



and the sketch Deconstructed Sketch No. 195



I came up with this!

Dino Easter Egg wreath

The eggs and the 'Easter' sentiment are from Lawn Fawn's Critters from the Past & Happy Everything sets, the Happy die cut is from Simon Says Stamp, sequins & die cut tag from Pretty Pink Posh of course!

I also added some sparkle using my Wink of Stella pen- hard to see in the photo above so I tried to get a better shot here...

Dino Egg wreath- sparkle

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter holiday weekend!

What She Said...

I'm having so much fun playing with some new stamps I got for my birthday earlier this month... (and there's *STILL* so much on my wishlist!)

My recent favorites include the Three Amigos from Mama Elephant! I definitely have a thing for critters and these are super cute and so much fun to color! My sister requested a (belated) birthday card for my nephew and thought this set would be perfect!

I kept the card simple by using scrap pieces of patterned paper and of course my favorite die-cut tag from Pretty Pink Posh!

Thanks for stopping by... until next time!
