Surf and Sun

With Laurie
Laurie shows us how to color block, sharing three beautiful cards. I chose to color block with ink blending on watercolor paper. Using the new Papertrey Ink set:On the Wagon Stamp Set and die set.

 Of course, I smudged my wood panel after it stamped so perfectly ...ugg! I wish I didn't use the black for the birds and kept them light like my sentiment. Its such a fun set that I know I will be playing with for quite a bit.

God bless you!

Market Street with a Prayer

With Ashley
So happy I decided to get this kit!

 Internet was out in our area for a few days so I was only able to post this on Instagram just now posting it on my blog.

Hello, hope you are enjoying your weekend! We were blessed to spend some time with the the grandkids and and family. Always nice when two of boys, hockey games are back to back. I cannot believe our first grandson is now, quite a bit taller than me now.... and I am tall.

 I normally don't show gifts I get from crafty friends, guess I don't ever want anyone to feel bad. I just had to share this amazing travel bag made by a dear friend that I call Martha lol Kim Heggins!!! Not only does she make beautiful cards but she can cook and sew anything , she just warms my heart! What a blessing to be on the receiving end of this beautifully hand crafted gift ! Thanks again Martha/ Kim! She even made it red , white and blue!

A Day at the Beach

Create Along With Us: July 2017

Hello there! I chose this card by Nichole from Papertrey Ink . 
I tried recreating her card with products I already had,
 but I can't wait for the mailman to deliver this to my door!

This was so fun to make! I blended the ink on the palm trees and last minute added a bit of sky!
For my circle I used Memory box Pinpoint Circle Frame.
 Papertrey Ink : Petite Places: Happy Camper and Petite Places:
Nativity Scene It Bethlehem ( for the palm trees)

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great week!

Red, White and Blue

 with: Betsy It's a great video!


Hello!  Just wanted to pop in and post something for the fourth.  I made sure I only used red,
 white and blue on my card! Lets kinda pretend the red plant stems are fireworks :)

I used the new Make It Market Mini Kit: Herb Garden , an older sentiment I had from:
 Operation Write Home fundraising.
PPP-Stitched Notes Dies from Serendipity Stamps .

I always start my blending with a soft brush then go over with the sponge dabber,
 it seems to help keep it more even .

Hugs and God bless !
