Deer Little One

Hi friends!  I hope you are having a great day!  I'm blogging on the My Thoughts Exactly Design Team Blog and thought I'd share my creation over here too.    

Today, I've decided to make a baby card because I know SO many people who are having babies right now.  It's such a joyful thing, isn't it?  I've noticed that a lot of my baby sentiments are the same and I was so happy to find this "Welcome Little One" sentiment in my More Mini Thoughts set.  The fonts on this set really lend themselves to any style of card making.  For this card, I decided to go with a more vintage look.  The image is from Wilson Designs.  The paper is Crate Paper and the lace tape is from Love My Tapes.  I used burlap string from May Arts and added some pearls, a doily, and a button.

Have a great day friends!

Birthday Dino

Hi friends! I hope you are having a wonderful Friday!

I just wanted to do a quick post for the Pumpkin Spice DT Call. The theme for the call is things that make you SMILE! You know what makes me smile? My boys. Did you guess right?! ;) You know my kids love right now? Dinosaurs! And what's cuter than this smiling dino? Not much I tell ya! This whole Mr Boy collection from Bella Blvd is pretty adorable. I added some other things that make me smile like Blueberry Divine Twine and a sentiment from Wilson's Designs.
Keep your fingers crossed for me, friends! Have a fabulous weekend!

Sail Boat

Hi friends! I hope you are having a great day! I am super busy getting ready for a craft fair. Gah! And I'm still under the weather. This is just a hard week.

Today, I'm sharing an old card because quite frankly, I've been so busy that I haven't taken pictures of all the projects I've made recently. So, here's an old Father's Day card using some Wilson Designs Stamps and some October Afternoon paper. The mist makes it looks like it's raining so this card is so confused. LOL! What can you do?
Have a great day friends!

Wilson Wednesday

Hi friends! I'm back again. I totally forgot that I was going to post a Wilson Designs Stamps card every Wednesday on my blog while I'm guest designing for them. Kim doesn't require this but I thought it would be fun, plus the stamps are so cute!

Here's my card for this week. I'm a bit slow on joining the mustache trend. I know, where have I been? I love this super cute Simply Silhouettes set! I decided to make a clean and simple card that can be used for almost any occasion. The patterned paper is from Imaginsce.

Have a great rest of the day!

Masculine Card Set

Hi friends! I hope you are having a fabulous Tuesday! We've had a laid back day today but the sun is shinning so I really couldn't ask for more. :)

I'm super excited about my new stamps from Wilson Designs, Nauti-cool. I decided to make a masculine card set to enter in the Moxie Fab World card set challenge. I really like this nautical theme for man cards! These cards are really simple just some embossed background paper, layered Nesties, burlap string and stamping.

Have a great day everyone!

Circus Birthday

Hi friend! Happy Friday! I hope you're having a great day! We had lunch with friends and I got happy email today so things are going well! Nothing planned for this weekend, so that's nice too!

Here's a card I made for a recent call that didn't get picked up. I used some super fun GCD Studios paper called Fun House. I punched the images out and then I fussy cut the banners. And the sentiment is from Wilson Designs Stamps from the set Everything's Owlright.

Have a great weekend friends!

***I'm blogging on the Paper Maniac blog today, if you would leave me a comment, I would really appreciate it!***

Hi friends! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! We had a very nice weekend and everyone is on the mend from being sick so I hope this week is a better one. :)

I've been doing this CRAZY thing where I stamp just for the fun of stamping. I know, outrageous right? Here's a card I made with my very favorite Wilson Designs Stamps set, Gnomebody Like You. I used my pal Tiff's sketch that you can find HERE. I combined coloring with paper piecing. A nice balance when you don't want to spend all day coloring.
Have a fabulous day everyone! Ohhhh and did you see this: There’s a new challenge blog in town with articles, swaps, interviews, videos, challenges, great prizes and MORE! Check out Lily Pad Cards!

Gnomes Abound!

Hi friends! I hope you are having a good weekend! Yesterday, we had a relaxed day. We ran some errands and had lunch then spent the rest of the day at home just hanging out. It's WINDY out there! I'm hoping the trees all make it intact out of this storm!

I got my order from Wilson's Designs Stamps this week for their new release, Gnomebody Like You. This is one of my favorite sets so far! I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the puns! :D They make me happy!

My first card was made for Jen del Muro's SFYTT for March. The strips of paper were a bit intimidating at first but I think they turned out quite fun. I used Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers for this card. Even though this line is geared toward pets, I think the woodsy color scheme goes perfectly with this stamp set. And a little inking of the edges which I neglect to do sometimes.

Then I decided to give some love the the girl gnome in this set and make a little girlfriends card. This card uses the SCS sketch that was posted last Wednesday. Again, I pulled out some woodsy papers to go with these fun gnomes. This paper is Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg. I really need to pull out older papers more often. I get pretty caught up in the new stuff.

Have a great rest of the weekend, everyone!

Girly Birthday

Hi friends! I hope you are having a great day! We are enjoying the sunshine today so it's a very nice day! :D

Here's another reject card from the recent Paper Crafts call. This was for sketch 42. I think the sentiment is too hard to see and I should have re-thought that if I wanted to see this published. Anyhow, here it is.

Did you know that my friend Kim Wilson has her own stamp company? I met Kim at CHA last year and she's the sweetest! She owns Wilson Designs Stamps and they are having a new release right now that I'm super excited about. This silhouette and frame come from her stamp set, Simply Silhouettes. Aren't they gorgeous?!

Have a great day everyone!
