June Guest Designing

Hello there and Happy Friday! Today, I am guest designing for the very talented Mariana Grigsby! If you haven't checked out her website, you should! She is A-mazing and many of her projects will blow you away!  I first got to know Mariana in the Hero Arts Flickr group and our love for Hero Arts products back in 2009.  She's always been an inspiration to me and I hope to meet her someday.

Here is the inspiration photo that I was to work with:

Isn't it a great combination of colors and love the manly theme.  Check out her post to see the card that I whipped up from this inspiration photo!  Great fun and a great challenge!!

I'll be back next week with some more fun coloring! Until then, have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

Spring Tulips

Hi all! Hope you are all well and happy! How's your summer going? Most likely just as busy and crazy as mine. ;)  I did some coloring today on a Taylored Expressions stamp set called Spring Tulips:

Friends are flowers...

Oh, how I wanted something so simple and yet, delicate at the same time.  I initially was going to color the tulips in yellow but decided at the last minute to change it to purple and match with its complementary color on the yellow cardstock.

I gave the floral vase a light bluish hue for the water.  I'll definitely be experimenting with these tulips in other colors. See you....time for me to go cook dinner and finish out another busy week ahead. (Oh, and speaking of food...all my foodies out there, if you have any great ideas for summer recipes, send/email them over to me, would love to hear what fun dishes you make for these hot summer days).

I'll be back with a manly card soon.

Cardstock: Notecards from Lawn Fawn (Sunflower).
Tulip and sentiment stamp: Taylored Expressions/Spring Tulips.
Black ink: Versafine Onyx Black.
Markers: Copics.
Pearls: Kaiserscrapbook.

Rounding out the year....a little break...and other mentions

Hello friends! I'm back with a little post....seems like forever since I've written anything on the old blog-o.  Life has been super busy, I must are you all doing?  Most of you have finished school?? We still have 1 more week to go...then summer school will start for us shortly afterwards.  Regardless, I am always spending my time with this little dude and loving it:

Anyhow, I haven't had a lot of mojo for craftiness lately, hence the lack of projects... so just popping in today to share little tidbits here. We had our Spring Concert which occurred today. Yay! It was so much fun! I love watching this guy of his strengths, and he loves music class and chorus:

He looks like he is in pain in this pic really, I think he just wants the camera out of his face....ugh.... ;)

And this photo makes me *giggle*, the stayed tucked inside for no more than 5 min. :) Boys and their chemises and ties....priceless.

I will be taking a short break from blogging to accomplish some other things but will be back on June 27 with a little something fun!  Until then, you know where to catch me...most likely hanging around on Twitter or IG!  Have a good one, everyone! See you in a few weeks!!  Take care!
