{SFYTT} December 25

Back again.....with a Christmas card!  We've just finally starting getting some spring-like weather, so it seemed a bit odd making a Christmas card, but I'd rather start getting that pile higher now than in November!

I used the Reverse Confetti SFYTT #12 to make a CAS Christmas card:

I started with the Simple Stories Handmade Holiday paper pack, and set to work!  The stamps are from the Tinsel N Trim set, and the dots on the kraft flag are from the Whole Lotta Dots set, all from Reverse Confetti!

Here's a look at the inside (kept it super CAS too!):

Thanks for stopping by!

{VLV} Thinking of You

My card stash has gotten very low, so I'm in the process of getting it stocked back up again.  A process that seems to take forever!

I came up with this "thinking of you" card using this week's Viva La Verve sketch:

I also even used the optional colour palette of Gray, Aqua and Yellow!

I started by pulling out another old My Mind's Eye paper pack, and getting to work, cutting out shapes using dies from Lil' Inkers, Verve, and MFT.

The sentiment is from the Treasured Words set, by Verve.  This is one of my favourite sentiment sets, I LOVE the font combos!  The butterfly is from the Blue Skies set.

Thanks for stopping by today!

{DS149} Mom...

Good Afternoon!

Just popping in here on the ol' neglected blog to share a card I've created for Mother's Day this weekend.

I absolutely LOVE Jen's Deconstructed Sketches, and finally got the chance to play along with it!

In trying to use up some DP I've got sitting around, I pulled out this old pack from My Mind's Eye.

I started by cutting out the flag using the Jumbo Fishtail Flag Die-Namics from MFT, and the small banners with the Fishtail Flags Die-Namics.

The "mom" sentiment was cut out using a die from Lil' Inker Designs, and the sentiment is from the coordinating set.  The hearts were cut out using the Stitched Hearts die, also from Lil' Inker Designs.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Enjoy!

{DS140} Celebrate! we are, into MARCH!  Hopefully wherever you may be reading this, spring is closer than it is here!  It's still supposed to be cold and snowy for a few more weeks here!

With the wintery weather, and mostly the nasty windchill, I've been able to stay inside and get a little crafty.

February was full of birthdays in our family.  My middle son was born on the 1st, and our youngest was born on the 28th!  Throw in both my birthday, DH's and the Olympics, and February was fairly full!

I usually start out looking for a great sketch when I'm sitting down to make a card.  I came across this Deconstructed Sketch, and had to give it a try.

The colour palette was inspired by the ColourQ Challenge #230.  I started by using my NEW dies from Lil' Inker.  I LOVE these stitched dies, and they don't get put away often!

The tag was cut out using the Tag Me die from Reverse Confetti.  I then stamped the circles, from Whole Lotta Dots (also by Reverse Confetti!) in Summer Starfruit ink.  I added the stars (Lil' Inker) and the sentiment (also Lil' Inker), and the card was finished!

It's the first time I've ever tried a circular card.  I'll definitely be trying it again!

Thanks for stopping by today!

{RS98} 5!

Good Morning!

It's FRIDAY!  I'm getting all these cards caught up, and in the midst of getting parts of life back into routine!

This card I made for my middle son's birthday.  I LOVE this sketch from Retro Sketches.  It'll be a go to for me now!

I started by pulling out some DP that has been stashed away, Appleton by Scenic Route.  I'm trying to get old paper cleared out before I purchase new stuff.....which will work until I see something I HAVE to have! (wink!)

The "happy" die is a new one from Simon Says Stamp, which I cut out twice with different colours.

The birthday stamp is from Everyday Circles by Neat & Tangled.

A peek at the inside:

That's all for today!  Have a great day!

{DS137} 50!

Good evening!

I've successfully posted two days in a row.....I'm sure this trend won't last, but there's nothing wrong with good intentions!

I fully intended to make some cards and scrapbook tonight, but I've somehow managed to accomplish next to nothing!

Last week, a friend, mentor, and coworker celebrated her 50th birthday!

I started out with the Deconstructed Sketch #137, and set off to work!  Again, I used the Doodlebug Designs Take Note paper (ahem, I accidentally bought 2 of them!).

The "50" was cut out using the Tall Numbers dies from Taylored Expressions.

Thanks for stopping by again today!  Hopefully I'll be back again soon!

{VLV} Happy Birthday

Good Morning!

So, it's been A LONG TIME since I posted last!  I've been a terrible blogger as of lately.  But I'm hoping things have turned a corner for now, and I'll be able to be a good blogger for a while!

On to the good stuff.....

My DD had a birthday party this past weekend, and needed a card.  I found this week's Viva La Verve sketch, and set to work!

I had already coloured up this adorable Wrynn (Eat More Cake), from Tiddly Inks Digitals.  I then pulled everything else together using the Take Note paper pad by Doodlebug Design Co.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Hopefully I'll have a new post tomorrow!

Stamps - Eat More Cake Wrynn (Tiddly Inks), Sentiment from Verve Stamps
Paper - Bazzil White, Basic Gray (SU!), Take Note (Doodlebug Design Co.)
Other - Copics, Heart Quartet Die (Verve), Nestabilities, Banner Bundle Die (Verve), Tall Numbers (Taylored Expressions), Fishtail Flags (MFT)
