Love Is In the Air

Michelle has a special give -a- way over at 

Hello and welcome to the 12 Kits of Occasions for June!

Michelle Is our host for the month of June, not sure how she put the kit together as she has so much going on in her life right now.
Michelle, you did it! 
I woke up early one morning and made all five cards in a row as I enjoyed this kit so much!
I took the pictures a little early in the morning and they are kinda dark, sorry.

I cut some of the cardstock included in the kit with Halfsies Diamond Die from the Greetery! I cut the patterned paper down and added a bit of glossy accents.

For the card above I used Papertrey Ink Wood grain impression plate, cut and added the included gold embossed tree!

 Don't forget to stop by :The 12 Kits of Occasions  for a list of supplies and the links to the designers for a peek to what they made with the kit. 
Thank you Michelle !

Peace be with you all my friends!

Keeping Christmas

Hello, I hope you are having a happy day!

 I was so busy last month, the time to post just slipped my mind.
I made up for it with seven Christmas cards ready to mail!
This Christmas group is a group of card designers trying to get ahead of making Christmas cards before we get too busy with all the Holiday preparations.
Hopefully we can inspire you to get ahead as well, trust me it feels nice!

I used the Bountiful Wreath stamp and die set from The Greetery!
Its more of a fall stamp set but I think stamped with different shades of green and red it works pretty well. The sentiment is from Poppystamps
The inks I used are all pictured above. I tried many red and I always end up going back to Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy. I also added Glossy Accents to each berry.

Please hop along and be inspired!

Quilted Thank You Card

In all fairness, I did make this card before seeing the photo
(not a back link) 
I am linking it because both my card and the photo are summertime fun and red, white and blue.

Hi there ! Hope all is well with you. 

My husband had a week off so not much crafting. We were blessed to spend a few days at our daughter and her husband's lake house in beautiful Lake Arrowhead.

A few weeks ago I received the most beautiful patriotic quilt from my sister (brother's wife) . I made this card to say thank you. 
I used the Papertrey Ink die ( that I use often) to cut material! It was almost perfect until I changed last layer of the frame to a lighter in color and fabric, material. I do love how easily the material cut with the die and a metal shim.
I will try post a picture of the quilt that I was given on July 4th.
Thanks so much for the visit !
God bless!

Birthday Blooms and a Quilt Top

CAS(E) this Sketch #376

Hello,  hope you are doing well. 
 I have been quilting lately as I have a brand new sewing machine! Trying to learn my new machine has taken a lot of time, as classes cannot start until next week. ( 🦠 )
This beautiful stamp came last week and I couldn't wait to use it, so I got up early this morning and made this simple card. I guess I chose orange ( usually go pink) because I wanted it to look like a California poppy ( state flower)

Just a peek at the quilt top. I made a few mistakes 
but I have learned from them so they stayed in the quilt.

Take care sweet friends ! 
God Bless
