We may be miles apart....

Be still my little heart....I crafted today.  I did some multitasking and cooked up this multi-layered card while I was making dinner. I colored in some miniature people:

we may be miles apart...

The little girl image and flowers, sentiment, butterfly trail, and grass belongs in one set called 'In my heart' from Mama Elephant. It's an adorable set and great for friendship cards and for little girl themes.

I used some very delicate patterned papers from WP for a little background color.  I finished off the look with some cute, pastel twine!

And......to finish off this post....how would you like to see another blog give-a-way from me in the very near future?? August is my birthday month....I'll be turning the BIG 4-4.....whooooo, and I was thinking of doing a fun give-a-way!! Let me know what you would like to see....what is trending, what would you want to be included in the give-a-way? It's been a while so this will be tons of fun! Until then, keep a look out for the give-a-way post!!

Have a good week!

all smiles

Well, hello there....it's a beautiful day in southern Calif. - actually, it's been beautiful weather all week, hope you are all enjoying your summer days! I colored in these flowers a few days back and haven't had a chance to place them on a card until today:

all smiles

Once again, kind of sticking with softer, yet brighter colors like pink and yellow fused together.  The floral stamps and the yellow polka dotted pp is from Lawn Fawn! I colored in the flowers and the leaves with copics.

The leaf die cut that is placed behind the flowers is from Memory Box and is called Fresh Foliage. Such a versatile die!  The sentiment is from this Mama Elephant set called Bountiful Blessings.

I also used an embossing folder from Anna Griffin for the dry embossing to give the white cardstock a little texture. Hope this card makes you smile!

Enjoy the rest of your week. Take Care!

Butterfly Flutter

Good evening! It's Monday and I'm back with a very soft - one layer, watercoloring card.  It's super delicate and is really as soft as is shown in this photo.

Butterfly Flutter

I used this butterfly STENCIL from Memory Box. Mixed up green inks, yellows, and light pinks to color in the butterflies and the surrounding bubbles.

I stamped tiny bits of floral stamps from Mama Elephants Bountiful Blessings set.  I did some masking and then stamped the sentiment, also from the same set, using Memento inks.

I scattered some matching pink pearls to finish off the look.  That's it for today. Hope you all had a wonderful start to your week!

Stencil: Memory Box/Butterfly Flutter.
Cardstock: Neenah.
Corner Rounder.
Floral stamp, leaves, and sentiment: Mama Elephant/Bountiful Blessings.
Inks: Memento/Tangelo, Lady Bug.

And....it's a wrap....

Hi all!  I'm back with a very quick and sweet little card.  I'm so pressed for time and haven't had a lot of crafty moments on hand but just to be able to sit down for a bit today and make something simple and happy is always good....

I adore you

The pretty floral patterned paper is actually wrapping paper from Hazel and Ruby, a new, cute company with lots of yummy goodies.  Check out their blog HERE.  I took a small piece of the floral pattern and adhered to the white cardstock.  A different feel to it, since wrapping paper is very delicate, you have to be really careful with adhesive so as to not have it make the wrapping paper uneven or clumpy looking.

The sentiment is from Avery Elle and I used a small strip of paper for the scalloped edge from Simple Stories.  For my friends and family who are celebrating in the states, I hope you all have a wonderful and very safe 4th of July holiday!
