Lil Inkers Designs Sunny Days Challenge

I cant remember what I saved this tube from but knew I could fill it up with Martha 
Stewarts tiny beads for the pinwheel stick.

 Good morning! I made this card last night. When I saw 
 Sharron’s card with the pinwheel , I decided I had to play! I received my Stitched Mats: Squares  yesterday! 
A few weeks before that I received my  Stitched Mats:
 Rectangles and dont know what I did without them.  So I
 decided not to wait anymore and just get the squares.

 I am telling you …you can save so much paper! See the yellow paper…. well, there is a big hole in the middle, because I took a smaller square and cut it out.( now I have it for another project) Why waste the center no one can see that there is a big hole.
I didn't take pictures for this card but I did for one I made Here.

This is from another card. I cut out the center of the frame then place the white card on top , I still have a frame around the white and the cutout piece on top is saved for another project! It is so easy to do this with the rectangles and squares. It makes me happy to not waste paper. Maybe... most of you do this already , but I thought I would share for those of you who don't. 

Showing you the back side before I flip the front of the card over. 

The sentiment is from Serendipity Stamps Thanks Large 
Pinwheel and squares from Lil Inkers Design

SSBC # 12 Victory Garden

Challenge #12  Victory Garden!  Use your favorite Serendipity Stamp image to create a garden inspired project! 

We were asked not to use flowers !
Hope you find time to play along , you only need to use at least one Serendipity Stamp, could be a sentiment stamp if you have one. 

 This was an easy card to make and color! I have a lime tree that I love so I knew I would use this stamp . Its very clean and simple.  I added the smile tag because like the saying says.. rearrange the letters and spell “smile”.

 Hi ,another quick post for Make it Monday... Paper Piecing.  Most of you know how much I love paper piecing, and that I find it very relaxing. So why not give it a try and check out the MIM video. I used an older set from Papertrey Ink for this one…. Delightful Dahlia, and some old PTI patterned paper and a bit of new from a craft store. I had the glitter hearts leftover from another MIM challenge. I hope you have a wonderful week !

Waltzingmouse Blog Party , Schools Out

 Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Blog Party.  I know my last card was stars as well, but this just worked. The theme is Schools out. I made this thank you card for one of my daughters. The school colors are navy and red, they even have stars on their schools shirts. I thought this would be a perfect teacher thank you card! I die cut the Starry Die  twice on the white cardstock  then adhered a layer of red and navy under the white. The stars are not on top of the white. 
Hope you enjoy the hop!

CAS(E) this sketch!

Here is this week's sketch by N@ Ali:

Quick post for today!  Thought this was a good time to use my new Verve die” Starry" . Its fast and easy. I know this looks like white but its Vintage Cream from Papertrey Ink.  The stamp is from Uptown Rubber Stamps I have had it for a while and just love the font. I could have used this for the 10 min. dash it was so fast but I never timed myself , and wrong colors. 
Take care and God Bless!

Make it Monday Texture

 Hey there! Quick post, for Make it Monday by Heather! Click on the link above if you want to see the video . I used a comb on the stamp. It's so hot here today almost 100. Maybe that’s why I made a Christmas card, using Tree Trimming Trio Stamp Set.  Love this older set. Everything is from Papertrey Ink but the embellishments.

 I am hoping everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day! All the kids and grandkids came over, they brought everything( food) All the husbands were great in making us moms feel like queens. 
We swam all day! We have great guys!
Take Care!

These are a  few pictures from my walk the other day. Our home is  above the line of trees. It was so nice to just get out and take a long walk with Major ( Our German Shepard)

Some cacti blooms I saw on my way home. All pictures taken with the iphone  using the HDR option on the camera! Not bad !  
Blessings to you!
