5 & Dime

I made this card back in May! Whoa!!  I still have some cards in my "To be Blogged" file, and am finally making my rounds to posting everything when I remember to.  I still LOVE October Afternoon, how about you? Almost everything here is from the 5 & Dime collection:

Things I Love: You

Just the scalloped die-cut is from Doodlebug.  The flower was cut out from a piece of patterned paper.

I used a bit of my own handwriting on the sentiment. Fun!  I need to write more instead of type so much! ;)

With Sympathy

With Sympathy
A CAS,  5" x 5" sympathy card today....using baby blue and soft pink papers from Pebbles and Webster's Pages.  The stamped image and sentiment is from THIS set from Hero Arts. 

The blue ink is called Soap Powder by Jenni Bowlin.  Isn't that a fun name?  I have a few of these inks, but I'm thinking I need them all, yum!  Have you noticed I'm keeping my posts much shorter these days? Just a photo and brief description.  Keeping it simple. :)

Thanks for peeking!

Summer Floral Tag

I'm not much of a tag maker, but when I do make tags, I try to have fun with the challenge of a limited amount of space:

You are simply the best thank you

Lots of Webster's Pages fun on here combined with some Hero Arts stamps. I love the little butterfly stick pin. :)  The colors on this tag reminds me to savor the bit of Summer that we still have here.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Bold Blooms

I've been wanting this Simple Frame stamp for a while now, I kept saying I would get it someday, and I finally did, yay!  I mixed it up with another stamp set called Bold Blooms, I made 2 different cards using the same sets:

i miss you

The one above is a little warmer with orange, red and yellow colors.  The next one is more dainty with just light blue and yellow as my color scheme:

You always know just what I need
The first card I did more controlled stamping and the second card was more carefree and random! I hope you like, I can tell I'll be using this Simple Frame a lot more!  Oh, and those inks....Jenni Bowlin, delicious!

You are my reason why.

I'm loving Ali Edwards/Technique Tuesday stamps as of late! The sentiments are so versatile for scrap booking and cards too!

I also used lots of pp on this card, I have so much pp that I 'really' need to use up before I buy any more....I have to start being good about that!

fluttering butterfly

hi fluttering butterfly

This little card makes me happy, haven't posted it yet before.  Birds and butterflies just seem to go together naturally.  All Pebbles, once again on this card, just the doily is from LYB.

Thanks for peeking!  I need to go find some inspiration...I've been mojo-less for 5 days straight, haven't even touched my crafting supplies, they've been sitting in the closet a little lonely.  Poor things.  I'm hoping to spark some new and fresh ideas soon, but right now, nothing comes to my head.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

The 'warmth' of Fall

I have to confess, I'm not really a Fall or Winter type of person at all! I cringe the day after Halloween, because I know what is coming....cold weather...lol.. Oh, the horrors of not being able to wear my shorts and flip flops... BUT....I do like the warm colors that the Fall Season emits....

happy Thanksgiving leaf flourish

So here is a Fall themed card I made a while back, love this  leaf flourish stamp! Have used it many times now.  I have no recollection what type of patterned paper I've used, sorry....Enjoy!

Birdie on a branch

A sweet little card for today.  This I submitted a while back, it was for a 'simple sentiments' category, but was not picked up. Almost everything is Pebbles goodness, yum!

Birdie on a branch thank you

Except for the ketchup red button and the green button, those are from Doodlebug! Aren't the rows of birdies at the bottom just too sweet? Love them papers!

As delicate as pink can be....

The title pretty much says it... I LOVE this shade of pink:

Happy Birthday

Super clean, super easy. Did a little dry embossing with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The light pink paper is from MME's Dwell collection. Yum!

It's late here, must get some sleep. Will check in w/you all later.

adore & hello

Happy Weekend! I've been playing with some new Jillibean, Crate Paper, and My Mind's Eye, three lovely combos:

adore and hello


I couldn't bare to cut my doily at the bottom there, so decided to just leave it, a little interesting, I'm starting to like things sticking off of my card. :) Anyhoo, I also used the MS butterfly punch and the sentiment is a rub-on.

I'm still loving the floral trims from Webster's Pages...gosh, there's just all sorts of stuff on this card. The colors still reminds me of Summer!

Enjoy your holiday and be safe!

Pretty Blooms

Finally was able to craft a little late last night. I played with lots of flowers on this one, because you know nothing makes me happier than flowers. :)

Thank You

I used a fun, leaf punch from Martha Stewart. I must confess, I love all the MS punches and take my time getting around to them, so I don't know how old this leaf punch is, but I love it! Punch an abundance of them and make your own vine throughout the card.

I used some scraps of paper from Echo Park and some pastel pearls. Keeping this post short and sweet. See you.
