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!

Hi again!!

2nd post of the day.. (scroll down to see my first post or click here)

I had some free time today during my son's nap to squeeze in some craftyness! It's been a little while since I played along with the Paper Smooches Sparks Designer Drafts challenge!

Paper Smooches

I thought what a better excuse to play with my new (to me) Chubby Chums stamps & I thought they'd fit perfectly with the sketch...

Here's my take:

As I mentioned before, I used the Chubby Chums stamp set, I added the 'celebrate' from this Birthday Words dies set as a branch for the owls to perch upon! :)

Happy Day!

Oh happy day... It's Friday!!

Popping in quickly to share a card I made this week for Tiddly Inks!

Happy Day

I was in a purple-y kind of mood, and thought this Annabelle Puppy Love image was just the cutest!

Thanks for swinging by! Have a FABULOUS weekend!

I'm popping in to share a card I made for the new Sparkle and Shine Challenge! This week's challenge was a sketch... and you all know how much a love a sketch! :)

I've also been playing along with The Daily Marker (Kathy R's) 30 Day Coloring Challenge, which makes it so nice already having images colored and ready to go!

I colored this sweet elephant (yes another elephant!) from WPlus9's Unforgettable set! They are just too cute & fit perfectly for my take on the sketch along with the tag die & sequins from Pretty Pink Posh...

Hello Ellie!

It's easy to say that I have found myself completely OBSESSED will all these cute elephants that have been released lately... they newest one from Avery Elle just arriving in my mailbox over the weekend- I couldn't wait to play with her!

So, I'm squeezing in just under the deadline for the Stripes Challenge at AEI♥U challenge!

With some washi tape, I masked off some lines, used distress inks to create a stripe pattern and stamped the little flower from the set in create a random background, added some more patterned washi tapes, and die cut the tag shape at an angle...

Baby Girl Ellie

Added the sweet elephant and sentiment, also from Avery Elle's We R Family and called it done! (oh, and we can't forget about the sequins too of course!)

Origami Birthday

There are 3 birthdays in March in my family (including mine!)... so we celebrate all month long! This past week was my dad's birthday!

He taught me how to fold origami when I was little, and I still love figuring out how to fold new things, so I just knew that I had to use this new (to me) Mama Elephant Origami stamp set on his card!

Origami Birthday

I paired it with the new Happy Birthday border die cut from Lawn Fawn to keep it as simple & "manly" as possible!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Weekend!

I decided to ink up this cute Up Up Bean, and pair her up for some fun Springy colors to join the fun for the new Farm Fresh Friday challenge @The Greeting Farm too!

Hello Spring

Tag die is from Pretty Pink Posh (again..), Cloud die is MFT (no longer available), & sentiment is from Mama Elephant.

Hope you are able to enjoy some SPRING weather today! Thanks for stopping by!
