Taking flight!

Hello! Happy Monday and Blog Hop day at Papertrey Ink ! I started my blog
many years ago with the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

What a blessing it has been, so many amazing and wonderful 
blog friends! I am truly grateful!

I layered the happy 4 times

I was not too sure what I was going to do for this photo and then then, 
this came to my mind when I sat down. 
I guess you could say I CASED myself with this CARD.  
My order from Papertrey Ink came in 5 days so I was able to use my
 new butterfly stamps and die!

I love Mondays! Enjoy the Blog Hop!

Have a Ball

Hello! I decide to play along in the MFT challenge. I have so many other stamps but I need a guy card. 
I created my own sentiment with the computer. I used an older set called All Star Die from MFT, 
the banner and trophy came with it. 

 Hope all of you on the East Coast stay safe and warm.

I have fun foam under the top layer.

On this card I made a frame using the Storybook 1 Die 
to create a window.
I sponged ink over the stencil I created with the balloon die.

I sponged some ink and then added my 3 layer balloons on top.

This last card was made after all the other cards were completed.
I'm going to say my stripes are the three Stitched Borders 1 :)

Hello Valentine

 Happy Monday!
 Lexi shows us some adorable matchbook valentines and how
 to make them on the Papertrey Ink blog

I used a few sets to make my little book that holds a tea bag. 

This was so much fun to make! I used some washi tape that I got from Hobby Lobby .
 I masked off my valentine sentiment to go with the “hello”.

I mentioned I was going to see Dick Van Dyke, we saw him Saturday night. Wow he is amazing at 90, 
we had wonderful seats and we could see every smile line he had! He told so many personal stories. 
Such a sweet man, wonderful voice and amazing dancing!

I hope you have a great week!

Party 'Til the Cows Come Home

Papertrey Ink 

I chose my inspiration from Ashley’s beautiful pink card. 
I wanted to use my Barnyard set, so the pink turned to red :)

Hello and how are you? 
I wanted to use my farm set for a while now, so even though we are having friends over this evening and I should be cleaning, I went into the craft room. I lightly sponged some yellow ink on the sun rays and used a bit of wink of stella on the trees and tractor.

Back in the summer, I bought tickets to see; Debbie Reynolds at our local Cultural Center. ( 4 miles down the street) We were notified she is not feeling well. I was Kinda bummed but guess who offered to take her place:  Dick Van Dyke, not too bad! 
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Tag You’re It #38

Hello and welcome to a new year with Tag You’re It! 
Tracey created this adorable ellie tag, and I knew right away I wanted to use 
this adorable Unforgettable  stamp and die from Wplus9 . When I was looking up the link 
to the stamp I found out it is their best selling stamp set. 

I very lightly sponged some ink Hawaiian Shores ink from Papertrey Ink in the background .
 I used this adorable  Papertrey Ink - Tag Sale: Quilted Die I think it’s NBUS

I kept it CAS with only coloring the red balloon.
 Thanks for the visit and I can’t wait to see your beautiful tags, I am telling you it is so very hard to vote. 

 I am also adding this to 
CHALLENGE: Throwback Thursday #10
