 Don't ask me why I chose the alligator, not sure other than I like it a lot! :)

Sorry I couldn't get a clearer picture for the life of me, posting it anyway! 
We have been so busy around here, not much craft time.
The sentiment is from Concord & 9th :Kindhearted

Two Cards and a Few Challenges

Create Along With Us: June 2017
Happy Monday to you all! 
I made two cards, one this morning and the pineapple card over the weekend. 

Challenge #10

For my layered pineapple card I used:

For my mostly green card, I used Pen & Ink Stamp Set

I used the card above from Nichole, for my inspiration.
I love the all green in Nichole's card!

 I stamped the flower cluster in all greens, then last minute added the printed top bloom 
to soften the look of the cluster! I could use this flower cluster over and over and over again :)

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have a blessed week!
Thank you for the visit today!

Happiness is Homemade

Photo by Lindsey
Welcome to The 12 Kits of Occasions !
Our wonderful host for the month of May is : Birgit Norton!

We also have two new guest this month... Welcome

I added a bit of shimmer, dots and Glossy Accents to the strawberries and middle layers.

 I used Lawn Fawn stitched layers and  Papertrey Ink - Mix & Mat: Flourishes Die to frame the card above .

Birgit had this darling apron already assembled, times 14 !!! 
 This card pretty much made itself! The one below too!

The card below went to dear friends, of over 25 years and they are moving away! They have always been there for me and my family, the kind of friends you can call last minute and meet for dinner lunch or come over and play cards, etc! I know we will keep in touch but they won't be close by anymore :(

As you can see , Brigit sent out... one amazing kit! Many of my cards made themselves thanks to all the hard work Brigit already did!  For more info and to see what the rest of the design team created please stop by 

Thank you!

Papertrey Ink Hop and a Friend

Kind of a long post for the hop.
May 2017 Blog Hop Inspiration

 Hi friends! I have another felt backed material ( The Felt Pod) coin purse for the hop!  Some of the felt from Papertrey Ink .
I thought the colors were almost spot on. 

 Just giving you a little idea on how I do the zipper,
so easy! Hope this helps!

The coin purse above is the one I did a few weeks ago,
the one below is for the hop.

Look who came for a quick visit : Darnell!!! We have been trying to get together for sometime now and something always came up. Darnell is, just as I thought, even better! We kept hugging and jumping from one topic to the next.  We could have talked all day! Darnell is a sweetheart and I am so glad she looked me up, to see how close I was, to her nieces graduation. What a blessing to meet such a wonderful blog friend in person!

Take Care!

Masked Watercolor

Video: May 2017 Inspiration Challenge –
Watercolor Lotus Card
Hi there friends!
When I was looking at the Altenew mini ink cubes
I saw this challenge and decided to give it a try while I wait for 
my new inks to come. I sure need help with color shades 
and the new inks are sure help me.

I know it's a bit messy but I was not really trying to stay in the lines, and not crazy about my blending. Cant wait for my new inks!
I masked my flowers like in the video, I used an older set 
Persian Motifs Stamp Set from Altenew ,  the sentiment: Pen & Ink Stamp Set from PTI.

Thanks so much for the visit!
God Bless!

Felt Flower Headband and Some Mistletoe

Lizzie has some great tips on how to make some beautiful felt flowers.

I mostly sew my felt flowers but is sure was fast and easy to 
use the hot glue gun. I did sew the flower to the headband.
Sorry the center of the flower is not clear.

Merry Monday #249 {Mistletoe}
 Yay one of my first few Christmas cards!

I heat embossed in gold then colored in with my distress inks! The holly is layered 3 times . I was going to use a different stamp then remembered this could also be mistletoe. 
Thanks for the visit today!
