Enjoy the Journey

with Lexi Daly

Lexi Daly's darling card
Hello friends! I had a bit of time today to play along with:
 Make It Monday over at Papertrey Ink 
creating Inchie Elements.

I used fun foam to raise my panel and foam tape to
 pop up each die cut square. I smushed ink onto a surface then 
spritzed with water and placed my watercolor paper on top.
I dabbed the paper with a tissue, let dry then cut.

Thank you for the visit and all your kind comments on past 
post. I hope you're  having a wonderful summer.

Flowers in Reverse

with Dawn McVey

Hello Friends, Dawn has a simple challenge over 
at Make It Monday , Flowers in Reverse. 
I used one of Dawns sets : Farmer's Market Florals.

and the color stamped mostly only on the leaves.

Make it Monday With a Few Trip Photos

 Hello ! Here is my card for Make it Monday, 
I used Nuvo Crystal Drop : Pale Gold for the dots.

I added fun foam but left the dots open to show just a bit more of the paper instead of having it be all white.

thank you for the beautiful jewels , Colleen 
I put the card first , if you would like to see a few photos from my trip, continue on.

I had a chance to spend a few days with these dear friends , oh how much fun we had.

We needed to eat after shopping at the craft store:)  The waiter didn't believe we all just met
 ( Darnell came for a quick visit to my house last year) but for some reason he did believe Darnell when she said: 
Colleen and Linda were twins and celebrating their

 Colleen in blue: One Smile Lifts a Spirit  Linda in the middle:

First stop from airpot was this stamp store in Seattle called Empress( I had never even heard of it before) To say that I was surprised when I saw actual products that I made for Poppystamps was an understatement! I only sent Dave the owner two of the felt projects I made for the package covers ( he wanted a few for brick and mortar stores) To see them in this store was a huge surprise .

We even had a visit from Darnell's Hammy
 The girls welcomed my sister Marylou (above) to join us for the day as I spent the rest of my trip with her.
 We all had such a good time and so many laughs....
 Thank you again Linda for such a beautiful home to stay in and thank you... Colleen, Linda, Darnell and Marylou, for the great memories 

I hope your week is a good one!

Triton Shell / Blog Hop

Hi ... Happy June to you all! 
Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps blog hop where you have a chance to win a $20 gift certificate
 to the store, just by leaving a comment.

This is an old product I had 
Pictures showing front and back

I heat embossed this beautiful Shell from Serendipity Stamps using this sandy shiny embossing powder.
I fussy cut only the top of the shell and used some fun foam underneath to raise it up, that gave me just enough 
lift to add the pretty pink posh jewels.

It feels and looks like sand in-person, with just a bit of shimmer.
 Thanks for stopping by today.
