Can You Smell The Lemon

I chose both the sketch and the photo.

Hello! I made this card Friday morning after seeing so many beautiful yellow cupcakes, I had to make one of my own. Didn’t get to post it because my husband surprised me and came home early to take me to Disneyland for the day. We always have so much fun , just the two of us .... and a very large crowd. :)

Hope you have a great weekend.

Tag You’re It!

Our beautiful inspiration comes 
from the very talented Nancy Penir. Nancy knows how to add many layers to her cards and tags and that is not always easy to do.
Cant wait to see what tag you will come up with.

Welcome to our Guest Designer and sweet friend: Kara Lynne. I love everything Kara makes!

So many beautiful tags last time, its always so hard to choose.

I used the colors Nancy had on her tag and I also added a strip of music 
patterned paper to the lower edge of my tag. I didn’t go to far from Nancy’s tag  design as I loved it just the way it was.

Take Care!

Foam Puzzle & A Card

Happy Monday to you all! Over the weekend I made a puzzle and thought I would share it with you, 
along with my MIM card.

Danielle Flanders showed us a beautiful card she made mixing patterns , 
we were asked to use at least mix three patterns. 
This is my attempt. Danielle made it look easy , not so much for me.

I will also be adding this to retrosketches #157...

My granddaughter loved placing foam pieces back in the negative that I had laying around.  I decided to make it a more fun and puzzle like. So I covered the fun foam pieces with stamped card stock images. She loves it and its very sturdy and easy to take with in your purse for when you go out to eat.

I cut a piece of fun foam 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 could be any size you want. I wanted it to fit in my  Clear Envelopes  from Serendipity Stamps.
You can glue or use two sided tape to adhere your images to the foam. I stamped all images before adhering them to the foam . Then I placed two pieces of Kraft card stock to the back to make it firm.  The foam the pieces come out and go in so nicely!

I’ve mad a few of these already but my girls took them home before I could photograph. You could use any stamp and die. My granddaughter( Ellie) is only two and she loves playing with this over and over. I can’t wait to make more! Thanks for the idea Ellie!

Have a great week!

The World Is A Better Place Because You Are In It!

Our granddaughter Delaney Beth

Just wanted to pop in real quick and share that it is :National World Down Syndrome Day! 
Keeping it short because I am ready for church and if I talk too much about how much I love this little girl I will start to cry and all the much needed make up will come off. :)

This was the first time my husband held Delaney Beth and I know his heart wanted to burst !
We are blessed and the world is a better place because Delaney is in it!

 Hello, I have a card posted over at the Poppystamps  blog. Hope you will take a look. 

Thank you!

I love doing this cluster stamping!

Good morning, I made this card Monday night and I had so much fun making it! I love the

Christmas With A Little Bit Of Beach

Hi! Hope you all enjoyed a great weekend. 
This card has quite a mix of products on it. I woke up early and then had to wait to take a picture because the sun was so bright in the room I take my photos in.
I layered my bow with the tiny bow that comes with the Baby Bootie, from Serendipity Stamps.

We had a beautiful day at Malibu Beach on Saturday for our granddaughters birthday. It was unseasonably warm. Our GD got this huge paddle board for her birthday. While she was in the water close to the shore this baby seal tried to climb on with her. ( it did scare her a bit at first)  The baby seal decided to stay on shore for several hours by the time he went back in the water his fur was dry and fluffy . It was a great day, we saw whales, seals and dolphins.

Little Bit Of This Little Bit Of That

Hello! I have a card and some Petite Places Church globes to share with you that I made in a hurry. 

I don’t think I could have stamped these so nicely and fast  without my MISTI. I realize the eggs are not proportionate to the size of the church , but the kids will love shaking the large colorful eggs. 

I used a lot of fun foam under many of my cut images.

I loved this sketch byGayatri!

The card above is the first card I made, then when cleaning up I thought I would add some fun foam to the piece I cut out and add it to the card. Not sure which one I like best.

 I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, it’s going to be a warm one here in California. We will be spending the day at the beach as our first granddaughter turns10. Its seems like only yesterday she was born. After the beach we will all go out to dinner at Dukes on the beach. 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have beautiful weather wherever you live.

The craft paper was left over from one of the 12 Kits Of Occasions Kits
