I’ve done it! I’ve finally had time to craft a little!!! Woo Hoo!!! LOL.

I’m here today with a card for the PTI July Blog Hop. 🙂 Here is the beautiful picture inspiration,

July Blog HopAnd here is my card,

14I just love that little fox 🙂 I was inspired by the flags and the doily in the picture. I was going to use flowers in place of the fox, but when I came across this stamp set I thought the fox was just too adorable so I die cut and water colored the little cutie. 😉

Hope you like it! And hopefully more crafting will be coming soon! 🙂

Ok, so the recital has had me running around like crazy! I haven’t had a whole lot of time to craft, let alone post anything 😦 But it should be getting better soon because the recital is the weekend after Father’s Day. So things should slow down then…hopefully 🙂

I do have a card to share today for the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch,

I die cut the “you” four times, glitter up the top one, and then added the others to the back so that it would pop off the front of the card. 🙂

Hope you like it!

So, I’m a bit obsessed with my new Building Blocks stamp set from PTI. It’s really so versatile! At first I was like, “hmmm maybe I should throw this in my cart, I don’t know…” and then when it got to my house, I just couldn’t put it down! There are, literally, TONS of things you can do with this set. Plus the sentiments are soooooooooooooo cute. 🙂

Anyhoo, I have a card today for the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. Here is the awesome sketch,

CTS_Sketch77And here is my take, although I have to warn you, the picture isn’t very good as we have a pretty gnarly storm going on right now (Tornado Watch, anyone? 😦 Boo.)

8I used my Beautiful Blooms II set for the circles, and… you guessed it! Building Blocks for the sentiment. 🙂

PS: Here is a card I made a while back, can’t remember where I got the inspiration from…but I hesitated to share it because there is something off about it…I think maybe its the placement of the circle and heart. They make the eye draw a funky shape…I don’t know….what do you think?

9Have a good day!

So, today I have a card I made for two challenges. I didn’t get one made Friday or Saturday because we were getting ready for my Hubby’s birthday party yesterday. I swear, one of these weeks, I am going to get a card done a day, LOL! It’s still my goal! 🙂

So back to today’s card 😉 It’s been awhile since I’ve joined in the PTI Monthly Blog Hop. Aqua and Melon are such gorgeous colors together. And I have been thinking about the CASE Study muse card a lot and so the two just sort of melded together in my head. Here is the Blog Hop graphic,

May Blog HopAnd the CASE Study muse card,

192Just love that layout, don’t you? Here is how I meshed them,

4I am love love loving my new Building Block stamp set!!! So stinkin’ cute! It was perfect to make that layout work with just stamps and very little embellishments. I only used some iridescent sequins. 🙂

I know, I know, I said a card a day, lol. I really did make this card yesterday. I just didn’t have time to post it! 🙂 So here is my take on the Make It Monday Artsy Watercolor Background technique:

3Pretty sure I was inspired by a Maile Belles card. 🙂

Have a great day!

So, I think I’m going to give myself a goal of at least one card a day. Well, for the next couple of weeks anyway 🙂 I have a little bit of extra time during the day since my choreography is done and we are a month out from the recital. When the recital gets closer I have a feeling posts will be few and far between. But then after, I should be back to at least one card a day, LOL. 🙂

As the title suggests, I have a card to share for the Muse challenge this week 🙂 Here is the lovely inspiration card,

68Love that CAS. I started out with something simple in mind, but it sort of morphed into this:

50I think I got a bit carried away…but I like it none the less 🙂 Loving my Delightful Dahlias and Wonderful Words: Thank You at the moment 😛 Super fun card to make, loved the Muse’s layout, so I stuck with that and it took off from there! This card had a mind of its own, LOL.

Have a good day!

Another CASE Study, WOO HOO! I’m (sort of) getting back into my groove 🙂 Here is the card to CASE this week:

191Wida is amazing, isn’t she?! Such an elegant card 🙂 Here is my take:

48Those reddish pink flowers on Wida’s card made me think of watercolor so I pulled out my Delightful Dahlia (love love love that stamp set and the additions!) stamp set and got to work watercoloring 🙂 I also liked the white on white sentiment die cuts so I put mine half on the flowers and half off, the best of both worlds 😉 They are hard to see in this picture but there are vellum butterflies with solid rhinestone stickers in the middle of them on the flowers. Here is a better shot:

49I adore CAS, and one layer stamping, but look at all that luscious layering! LOL! Ok, that’s a lot for me! I tend to over do it when I try lots of layers, but sometimes it works out. 😛

Hope you like it!
