Hello ! 
Welcome to the April 12 Kits of Occasions post!
Our sweet host for the month of April is 

 Welcome to our Guest Designer: Rosemary Dennis

Beautiful photo taken by Lindsey!

Lisa sent a kit that is full of: soft colors, sweet images and 
lots of little birds. I had such an enjoyable time creating.

I love the way, the card above turned, out simply framed and uncolored! I used :
 Mama Elephant, Clearly Creative Die along with:Papertrey Ink - Mix & Mat: Flourishes

I was so happy to see And I Think To Myself  stamp included in the kit , it was a stamp I had asked
 the owner of Serendipity Stamps to create and she did!

I decided to rip the edges of the polka dot paper to expose 
some of the white, I was pleasantly pleased.

Christmas Village

Merry Monday #287
 {Colleen's Inspiration...}

Good morning !
My friend Colleen chose this fun inspiration photo for
 Merry Monday, Christmas Challenge.  

I love it when I reach for a stamp set and see that I made extras.
The houses and trees were all ready to go.

 I love making matching envelope liners, It seem to be a small addition of mine lately . This liner is from
 Wplus9 Designs 

I added some fun foam to the back panel and foam tape to raise some of the houses. I added some glue for the snow. I love the new Gina K Designs Connect ( Simon Says Stamps ) glue in the tube .... It's always ready to go...always! 

Thanks for the visit today!

Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the second hop for the month of April.
Serendipity Stamps is giving away a $20 certificate to one
 random commenter.

I used the Wedded Bliss Cling Set for my card today.
Something about how wonderfully a rubber stamp ...stamps!
I love the simplicity of this fun stamp set!

I know my picture looks almost black and white but it's not, just bad lighting for a stone and white card. 
On the bouquet I added some buttercream jewels from Pretty Pink Posh and  used Stitched Notes for the center panel.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Stitched Mother's Day Blooms

with: Michelle Leone. Michelle has her first video for Make it Monday and did a fantastic job!

Happy Monday to you! I hope your weekend was wonderful!
We enjoyed a beautiful weekend... kids baseball game, dinner and movie with some of the grandkids.
 Went to brunch ( sat outside to enjoy the beautiful mountain view) on Sunday after Mass with my guy.
  We spent the rest of the beautiful sunny day relaxing... just the two of us. It's been very busy these past few weeks.
It's the little things and time with family that means the most to me.

I pierced the stamped stem then did my stitching and added a few 
glass beads to the leaves. The back of the bookmark is covered with vellum to hide the stitching if used as a bookmark.

Thank you so much for the visit!
God bless!

I love red and white... so I just had to play along in this challenge.

I used my Snow Bunny stamp from Serendipity Stamps and sentiment is from Papertrey Ink . 
I heat embossed with some 25 year old embossing powder as I couldn't find my new one. 

Hope you have a great day!

Lemons, Limes and A Peach

you can find my chance to win post here 

Hello there! I have a quick card this morning for Papertrey Ink 
Make It Monday and:
Simon Says: Happy Birthday!
Happy 9th Birthday to Simon Says Stamp!

For my card today I used the :Make It Market Mini Kit: Still Life: Summer  and :Pen & Ink Stamp Set .
 When I stamped the outline in black it was a little bold as this outline is a bit thicker than most. I know the peach doesn't really go with all the lemons and limes but it was already stamped and it seemed to help ground the card. 

I hope you have a wonderful day!
