Featuring the Pear Die

Look at this gorgeous new Serendipity Stamps Pear Die !

12 Kits of Holidays

Sharron is the host this month. Look at all the goodies she sent ! I had so much fun and so much leftover to use later.

This is what was in the beautiful kit we all received.

I so enjoyed this fun kit! I almost colored this sweet guy in ,
 but then decided to just let him be.

 I loved this ribbon it was thick and had a bit of wire
 in it to keep the shape.

 See I colored in a few!
On the one below I did add my own sentiment,

Sharron sent out this great kit! Thank you so much! I will post the supply list later other wise it will be on Sharron’s blog.  Keeping this short as there are 11 other blogs to check out. Please stop by and see what all the other girls have made. 
I know I cant wait to see.
I needed to post this a bit early because I have a Serendipity blog hop for the am. with a prize! Please check back.

Make it Monday Perfect Pearls and ColourQ

 Have you ever heard of Perfect Pearls? Well, I have not!  After watching Nichole’s Make It Monday Video I thought to myself……. hmmm…. wonder if I could use my bare Minerals 
highlighting eye shadow?…..Yep …..I could and that is just what I did!  Now after trying this I might go out and buy the Perfect Pearls. This was lots of fun! I wont be using my bare Minersals eye highlighter anymore as it is on the pricy side , I only needed a tiny bit though. Wonder why I have never heard of this before!
Hope you have a great day!

All products are from Papertrey Ink but the Limeade cardstock.

Waltzingmouse CASEd Flower Show

WMS Flower Show competition

This is the card I CASEd
I know….. why mess with perfection!!!

 I have one small layer of felt under the very center flower.

 Waltzingmouse invited some wonderful guest designers to make some flower cards! Then we were asked to CASE one or more of the cards . I chose Anne-Elise I love everything she makes and would never even try and make a card like her until today. For this challenge only! I only had a few of the flower stamps , I love the Camellia  and would have done that one as well. I did lots of embossing on vellum , I didn't do any stitching like  Anne-Elise . Well, this is my version, if I could have, I would have made it just like hers. As you can see I had some photo problems. 

I fussy cut all the layers. For the small flowers and leaves I stamped vellum , heat embossed, and then used a tiny punch. I found it easer to use the punch after all were embossed , that way they did not blow all over the place with the heat gun. 

Thanks for stoping by!

Make it Monday and CASology

by Ashley

Quick post as one is almost ending. I struggled for days to come up with a card not sure why. I think I have been glued to the news for too long. It has also been very beautiful outside. We went to some of the grandkids baseball games yesterday, that was so much fun. Nothing like watching your grandson  up at bat 4 times... each time hitting a home run! I know that was a bit braggie… but I think we can do that as a grandparent! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Four Of A Kind

My prayers are with all of Boston and those at the race.

I am the new kid on the block of the  four of a kind group!
( ok,…... grown up!)

This is the beautiful kit that Kim sent out!

 I love the papers and colors Kim sent out!

I have 12 grandchildren so I placed 12 birds in the trees.
That is a lot of little ones fluttering around and nothing, could 
be better!

 This is just paper I scored 

Is this not a gorgeous die! Its all one piece!

A few of my friends are in a group called 4 of a kind! One of the girls Renee: ItsAPatchworkLife  had to step down because of other commitments. I was very happy that Cathy asked if I wanted to join. Of course I said yes. Well, I was so excited when Kim sent this kit out around the beginning of March…. I thought... wow I better get busy… and that I did. Thinking it was due for the middle of March.  Then I learned we would not be posting until the middle of  April. Well, look at me I was ahead of the game. Kim sent out so many fun things to use . It was very easy to come up with these cards and one magnetic book mark.
 I am sure the girls will be missing Renee , I can only hope to fill her shoes.  Well, Im over 5’ 9”so my feet probably wont fit in her tiny shoes anyway. But I can try!
Please stop by and see what the other California girls made. I know I cant wait to see what they came up with.
