Masked Heart

Hi there and happy Monday to you! I spent MLK day at our two of our granddaughters soccer tournament today, 
as it was near by . We had a beautiful sunny day and I was very grateful!

Melissa shared in her Make It Monday video how to make a darling masked heart card. 
For some reason my computer wouldn't let me share her card but you can see it in the link above.

I am working with a new computer and for some reason when I edit my photos they look great then when I post them they change......... Hope to figure it out soon.
I may have stamped way too many large green leaves and not enough small blooms.

I created this card this morning and didn't have a chance to post until tonight! I used the Papertrey Ink Make It Market Kit: Don't Forget to Write stamps on this card , the die is the same one Melissa used ,Papertrey Ink - Limitless Layers: Heart Stitches Die and the sentiment is from Serendipity Stamps Love You Small. Thank you for the visit!

Playing Along With Papertrey Ink Make It Monday

Make It Monday #271: 2016 A La Carte

Make It Monday #245: Color Isolation

Hello! Hope you are enjoying your day! 
We are getting some much needed rain here in CA! 
I love the rain but often worry about those that are not safe and warm.

  Ashley's Card

I chose Ashley's Make It Monday technique to create with.

I didn't have the Papertrey Ink Noted Scalloped Vertical die so I used a frame die from Mama Elephant, that I already owned and turned it into a folded card by just moving up the top edge so it would cut on the fold.

I took the Best Wishes stamp, masked the lines and stamped the image over my card using Soft Stone ink , then adhered the top layer with foam tape.  I added Nuvo Drops then lightly sprinted some fine glitter on top.

God Bless You!

Prayers and Flowers

CAS(E) this Sketch #203
The Card Concept #64- Pretty Things 
Hi there and thank you for all your prayers , kind words and thoughts at the loss of a very dear friend!

I couldn't sleep so I made this card at 3am this morning.

I knew I wanted to use the Watercolored Anemones from Wplus9, this pretty patterned paper from My Mind's Eye,on trend 2 that was part of a Christmas gift and my brand new Poppystamps; Tailored Stitches #1788.  I lightly stamped my sentiment using Soft Stone from Papertrey Ink using the Prayer stamp from Simon Says Stamp.

I love these new Tailored Stitched Dies it's one long strip and this one comes with 3! I just placed it where I wanted and then again on the other side, so you can totally make your own design.
I love the flowers from Wplus9 when I showed my husband he thought I painted them :) I told him its all in the stamp.

I am also entering the two Simon Says Monday and Wednesday Challenge

Merry Christmas

Hello! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
I’ve been quiet on my blog, with so much to do for Christmas.
Just wanted to pop in and say hello.

When I saw my sweet friend Michele from I Card Everyone use this adorable stamp set from WPlus9 I just had to have it! I loved the cards Michele posted on Instagram, made with the black sky. As soon as I received this stamp set a few weeks ago I made some cards very similar to Michele’s, I didn’t have the same sky as her so I lightly rubbed my Papertrey Ink white snow ink over the embossed panel . The stitched hills are from Mama Elephant, I used Zig pens, Copic markers and more:)

 Merry Christmas to you All!

Prayer and a Pompom Wreath

My second post today First one is Bless You!
Create Along With Us: December 2016
 Dawn’s Card 

Hi friends! Hope your December is a good one for you so far! I took a bit of a break from blogs and created this wreath. Sorry I know I have been missing all your beautiful projects, sorry!

A few weeks ago jennifermcguireink shared that she was making lots of pompoms, well I had to get in on it too! I had so much fun making them and kinda knew all along I wanted to make a wreath. I wish you could see this in person, I am SO in love with this wreath! I used different kinds of yarn, some thin, thick and fine. I wanted slight variations of cream to white This is so addictive and not a good idea to get into with so much going on before Christmas.
 Now all my girls want one, they will have to wait.
I also made many just to put on Christmas gifts and will do the same for Birthdays etc.
 How many of you got hooked after seeing Jennifer’s post on Instagram, like me?

Simon Says: Let There Be Snow

Ok, quickly back to my card for Papertrey Ink, I recreated Dawns
 card using the products I already have. I did some embossing and used my Zig pens right on the stamp.
