Hello and thanks for the visit to my blog. I did some paper piecing on these simply stamped images and popped up a few fussy cut pieces. The background  is patterned paper . My “relax’ die is layered a few times. I had a water colored paper siting on my desk, and used that for the die.

You should have arrived from Karen Amidon’s blog and next on the hop is Miriam Napier

Bright and Happy!

 Kelly has been so kind to take the time to do our kit photo since our sweet friend 
Kara has been away (always apart of our group)

Thank you Tracey, I had so much fun making my cards this month.

Happy Birthday! Stamped With MISTI

 by Lizzie

 I am also entering this in the Time Out  Challenge #29
‘You can't make a Rainbow without a little Rain'
I chose Rainbow 

 I want to wish a very sweet and dear friend a Happy Birthday: Lindsey from Occasional Crafting
She got her card a little a month early:) not this card.

I was happy to see that Lizzie used a lot of stamped backgrounds  for today's MIM . Last night I mad the birthday date box that I saw Jennifer McGuire made, only I used all Papertrey Ink products even the edgers dies to make my tabs. I love the way the balloons turned out. It took a while but fun to make, so today I made a card.

This set:Graceful Greetings was an after thought when I placed my order this month, I was so pleased that Papertrey Ink let me place another order and then reimbursed me for the new shipping. My order still came in less that a week. Thanks Papertrey Ink . So happy I bought it even my girls love it!

Glued Lines

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop
Good morning! 

I know this looks like black in the photo but I cut NAVY strips of card stock and glued them down.

Sorry for the dark photos , I made my card last night and took it in the very early morning . I embossed my cup with large dot folder from cuttlebug.

A New Tag Challenge

Our beautiful inspiration comes from Jen Mitchell. 

I decided to make two tags the first one is made with To The World from Serendipity Stamps I sponged a few colors over the white embossed sentiment fro a bit of ombre. Sentiment is Type Strips Stamp Set from PTI

The tag below is made with a die from Poppystamps :Elsa Butterfly Branch. I also sponged a few colors for an ombre background.  

Both tags were made from

Happy Mail!

Lexi had some fun new ideas and I wanted to give it a try.

Hello sweet friends. I have a quick post for tonight. 
I decided to use this older set that has not been used much. Part of the mail truck idea was from Christina of Papertrey Ink DT.

You know we all love it when we see and hear this truck ! Poor guy is always being stocked by me, and I think its safe to say YOU!
I received my Papertrey Ink order in 7 days, that was nice.

God Bless!

Chance To Win A Stamp Set

Hi there! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
I have a card up on the Poppystamps blog and you have a chance to win a stamp set just by commenting......HERE

Still Time For Tag You’re It!

Good Saturday Morning to you! 
I have been wanting to make a tag for weeks now. My dear friend Jeanne has the inspiration tag up and the time is running out. I woke up early this morning and found the time. Yay!
 Jeanne didn’t add a bow to her tag but I made a Jeanne bow anyway.

As you can see I did not follow the colors, I did try to combine some pattern papers and follow the design like Jeanne. You know, the way Jeanne layers is not easy It’s a gift ! I tried to add a feather but I just couldn’t get it to work. I don’t have that gift :)
You have a bit of time left to play along, winner gets to be Guest Designer. 
Have a wonderful week!

Every Act Of Love

Hello, and thank you for stopping by. This time I was asked to use a verse as the focal point of my card. Hope you can play along for a chance to win a 20$ gift certificate to the store. 

Under the very top layer of my card, I added a die cut piece of  “fun foam” to raise it up. Or you can just use foam tape. All I did for color was blend three different shades of ink, going from dark to light with a sponge. Easy to do and who needs colored paper :)

I love any quote from Mother Teresa and I really love the font of this one. I used my favorite simple solid butterfly , fussy cut it out and added a bit of clear Wink of Stella . God Bless!

Pajama Party!

Welcome to the  WMS Pajama party! Jeanne Jachna and  Cathy had a big hand it getting this party ready. Thanks girls!

When I made my cards I knew exactly what went where, when I came to post, I was a bit askew, think I have it straight now.

Challenge No.1 - Shower with Gifts 

Challenge No.2 - Gift Card It

To make my umbrella I used an old memory box die then used it again to cut out the circle from Pretty Circles Die set and added it to the top. Very versatile die!

This is the inside of my gift card.

Challenge No. 4 - Bedtime Story Sketch

Keeping it short as I have a few post today and you have lots to see. Thanks for stopping by!
