Fun In The Sun

My BFF and I spent the weekend at a cabin enjoying the water, sun and her family.  I took a whirl at paddle boarding.  Although I did not stand up, I did not tip or fall eaither!!  We filled the days floating on the water and the evenings around the campfire

So. I recreated our weekend with stamps and ink.  Hope you enjoy the beach scene!

American Butterfly

It is getting grungy around here as we create a new species of butterfly.   The American butterfly has made it's debut for the fourth of July!

This card was so fun to make.  The butterfly stamp has veins in the wings and the veins had to be masked off.  Then the stripes had to be stamped.  Paint was used for the vibrant colors.  Stars and grung were stamped and if needed, embossed.

Hooray For The USA

July 4 bromgs BBQ's, my son marching in the parade blowing on the tuba, love for our country and a tribute to my mother as it was her birthday.  Besides. birds are always welcome at your backyard BBQ, right?

So this card had to be special and include all the festivity of July 4th.  It has stars, stripes and birds for my mother.

Have a happy July 4th and enjoy that corn on the cob!!

Wear A Crown

For the love of pineapples and dentist appointment cards!

Be a pineapple, be sweet on the inside, stand tall and wear a crown.  My sister loves pineapples and how appropriate to make her a pineapple birthday card!

I recycled my son's dentist appointment card, not because of a shortage of patterned paper but because the colors matched!  It has the months of summer in different fonts.

'Thanks for stopping by and be a pineapple!

On The Case Of Becca


Today I am on the CASE of Becca.  Is there anything more bright and cheerful than to CASE your niece's art?  I love the different mediums and ideas Becca has and she gives me tons of inspiration!

How bright and cheerful can a road trip be?  I love getting in the car with family or friends and seeing new destinations!

Cheerful Snails

 Today I am using an Inspired By photo inspiration.  Now the only thing I think of with a snail is slow or sluggish...which I am this week because it is just hours before the card has to be submitted and I just finished it.

 Inspired By

I found this great panel in a paper book.  Adding some googly eyes and splatters to my snail shells, the goofy snails look CHEERFUL and ADORABLE!

Thanks for stopping by!  Because these cheerful snail are so beautiful, I am also playing along with:

On The CASE Of Chris


Today I am on the CASE of Chris!  I love the background she created.  The stenciled area on top of that yellow is so pretty.  Then add in the black and the whole card pops!


I went with the For The Birds die cut and this fantastic sentiment from STAMPlorations.
