Pretty in Purple!

HELLLOOO Friday! & WHEW what a week it has been!  Only post for me today... I think!

It's time for another Farm Fresh Friday Challenge over at The Greeting Farm! This week my teamie, Kristina is hosting and she chose to her favorite color as the theme... PURPLE!

I colored this sweet girl from the Winter Greetings set that I surprisingly hadn't colored yet since it released! I had to remedy that quick and those she would look SO cute in all purple! :)

Pretty in Purple

I used various shades of the BV-copics to color her outfit and once again hit up my trusty-ole BOX of scraps to find some matching papers... oh an of course some washi tape- there's always room for some washi tape! :D

Be sure to check out the other fabulous inspiration by the rest of my TGF teamies on the blog and hope to see you play along!

Happy Weekend!

HBD Cheeky Monkey!

Guess what? I'm back again! (2nd post today... please keep scrolling or click here for my 1st post!)

This time to share my latest project as a guest designer at Little Miss Muffet Stamps!

I just love these adorable images- I really want them ALL! Especially these sweet Swings n' Slides. My card today uses Swings n' Slides Cheeky Monkey! He's such a cutie, I might just have to save this one for my son's birthday next year!

I kept my card pretty simple, adding just some woodgrain washi tape and the birthday sentiment (Lawn Fawn Quinn's ABCs & Happy Everything)

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Sweeties Release Rewind!

Back again sharing one more project I made with this month's release from Paper Sweeties!

PSSST... all October release products are available in the shop NOW!!

I used the new Stand Add-On Scarecrow Sweet Cuts die paired with the coordinating stamp set. Bringing myself back into the Fall after all those fun Christmas cards I created for the release... because I have to admit I and *so* not ready for Christmas yet! LOL

Paper Sweeties Scarecrow

I just love the look of copic on kraft! To create my pile of pumpkins, I stamped and masked to create the look that they were neatly stacked ;) added in the sweet scarecrow- I really think he's my favorite! & finished it off with more coordinating patterned papers from my scrap stash! (sentiment: Lawn Fawn) 

Finally don't forget to check out what the rest of the team created!

Halloween Macarons!

(ok, this one is even a surprise for me- but there's so much fun stuff going on I can't keep up! THIRD post of the day! Please see my Paper Sweeties post here, and Chi Chi Memories post here!)

If you haven't noticed yet, I've been a little obsessed with tags lately... that's not a bad obsession right?

Especially since I got this one from Pretty Pink Posh! So when I saw that the challenge over on Avery Elle was to use tags- how could I not join in on the taggy fun??



Paired it up with the color coordinates from the Wednesday Challenge on Simon Says Stamp and I was set!


I colored the macarons in orange, purple & green and matched it with some cardstock scraps that I can never seem to find the end of! & added the sentiments from a Hero Arts Halloween greetings set.

Ok, that *SHOULD* be it for me today....



until tomorrow! :D


Halloween FREEBIE!

It's a busy week- please scroll down for my first post or click here!

It's the 15th of the month which means is freebie time at Chi Chi Memories & and time for a new challenge! This month's freebie is just perfect for Halloween- it's *just* around the corner!

Halloween Boy! Hurry go grab him while he's still free!!

CCM Boo!

I paired him with some more Halloween paper scraps that I had in my stash to match the sketch for the challenge.

& I can't forget about another one of the sweet October release digis- I made this card using Shy Girl
CCM Shy Girl

I kept this card sweet and simple, but fancied it up a bit by adding the die-cut words with the inlaid technique. Along with some shiny sequins & washi tape!

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Sweeties Release Day!!

The day is HERE.. all of the new October stamps sets and sweet cuts dies are available in the shop NOW!

My card today shows another of the Joy Sweet Cuts paired with the Trim the Tree stamp set (as well as the Sweet Cut die too!)

Paper Sweeties Day 3

I thought the tree and sentiment would look elegant in some glitzy gold! The tree is stamped and gold embossed while I diecut Joy from some glitterly gold cardstock. (& yes on another tag...) I also got some good use from the patterned paper scraps in my stash- anyone else a scrap paper hoarder?

Check out what the rest of the design team created today!

Best Witches!

(2nd post of the day please scroll down or click here for my Paper Sweeties post!) 

It's Tuesday and time for a NEW challenge at Tiddly Inks! This week we challenge YOU to make a Halloween card using Non-Traditional Colors!

I thought this Witchy Wryn would be perfect for some non-Halloween colors...

Best Witches

Had to add a *little* black in there just for fun ;) She still looks Spooky (but in a cute way..) with her pink hair and blue witches robes right?

Check out all the deets on the challenge blog and more fabulous inspiration from the design team- hope to see you play along!
