Laurie did this weeks MIM with a beautiful card.

At first I blended more of the leaves but was not happy
with them so I covered them up.

Hello there ! I hope your last day of 2015 will be a great one!

Watching the little ones for a few hours so this will be a fast post.

I used my watercolor pencils and then blended with water. I did keep Laurie’s design of the embossed background  and strip of paper ( something I love to do).

Happy New Year !
I have a post for tomorrow .

I used Papertrey Ink Doodlie-do Stamp Set and matching die set

a huge wonderful kit with so many options! Thank you Lindsey!

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

Hello and Merry Christmas!
A quick post for the Papertrey Ink hop.

Sorry about the shadows in the photo.

I shaded my smaller Mat Stack 7 with Papertrey Ink Smoky Shadow Ink then 
layered it on top with some foam tape. I used the wonderful free 
One Big Happy die and stamp set.  
I am making a set of cards with this design (inspired by Kay)
 so I will be using this design for a while

I will be back later to see all the cards on the hop.

Alphabet Tag

Hello! Im so happy you stopped by today!
  We are halfway through the Serendipity Stamps Challenge. 
If you would like a chance to win a $20 certificate to 
the store... just make tag 
using any Serendipity Stamps product!

I love the alphabet set from Serendipity Stamps! 
I needed to make a lot of tags for the girls, this seemed the best way to get lots done at once! I adhered the alphabet stamp with some
foam tape. I love the red and white, hope you do too!
Merry Christmas !

You can buy the whole set or individually.

Just a Note

Hi dear friends!
I chose Kay’s card to CASE , I only changed the 
flower and the color! CLICK HERE to see Kay’s cards.

 I should be in the kitchen baking but decided to make a card.... At first I  felt kinda guilty for making a card when there is so much to be done. Now I’m glad I did!

Just like most of you I find so much inspiration from Kay’s cards. This was quick and easy as the flower was already cut and stamped. All I really had to do was the blending.  

Hope you have a wonderful day!

More Go Team Go!

Hi friends, Ashley has a fun video and made some adorable cards. I wanted to make something pretty but only had time to make a card that I needed. Ive made this one often and posted it HERE,but this time the number is out of felt. 

I am born and raised in CA but my parents are both from Wisconsin, and my son in law was a Packer just for a bit.  Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers were the quarter backs he was up against! He was is great company ...don’t you think! Anyway, its always been my favorite football team! 
My son in law is now a Vice Principal of a local high school and has three beautiful children. We couldn’t be more proud of him.

Ok enough about football! I love this little set Football Frenzy Stamp Set from Papertrey Ink , it can be used for so many different kinds of sport teams! I love the way the stripes line up so easy!

I know we are all crazy busy but sometimes we just need some fun crafty time. Take care !

Edited to add one of the many chalk boards  etc. my daughter Nancy 
makes all free hand! this one was for a wedding!
 I wish I could write like that!
