Wishing you luck, peace, and happiness

Hey y'all! I'm just stopping on in, to share a card with you! :) I saw the current Casology challenge and thought 'hmmm...'


Well, I was able to whip something up!


Garden...I think of a lot of things, when it comes to the word Garden. Talk about a having a wide range of ideas! ;)

I recently ordered some FUN and AWESOME (in my opinion) stamps from Altenew! I knew I needed to ink these babies up! So, when I started to look at my sets, this one stood out. I saw the 'humming bird' and was like 'yep. This is the one to use'! Then I had to think of 'how' I wanted to use it. Then I saw some Cas-ual Fridays Stamps sitting there and 'oooh, yes. The little petal flowers will be perfect'! And why not throw in a use of an Gelato?!...And that's how my card was created. :) I would love to hear what you think about it!?!

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Note...

Hey y'all! Happy Good Friday! :) I've been a little under the weather lately. Though, I'm slowly starting to feel better. And yesterday, I stayed relatively quiet because it marked one year since my Dad  had passed. I thought I was doing okay, then when I was making dinner everything just sort of came at me. In the mix of emotions and tears, I happened to look out at the backyard. I was looking at the ground and was trying to figure out why there were 'wet spots' everywhere. The more I looked, the more I kept seeing them. Then, I looked up and out to my right and said, "oh, it's sprinkling!" (if you even want a call it that, really just a very light mist). Once, I noticed that I stepped outside. And long behold, a rainbow was in the sky! My kids and I stood out in the light sprinkle for a bit, to admire it. It brought a smile to our faces and it helped me somewhat 'breathe' for a minute. It was very nice. And that pretty much summed up my evening.



Now, today I'm stopping in to share a card. This time I'm playing along with the current Casology challenge! Such a variation, of what can come to mind with this weeks cue card. ;) So here's my card!


Not exactly sure how this came to me?...And I somehow had energy to make this! lol For my 'notebook paper' I used my stamp with two ink colors, then 'spritzed' it with water, before stamping on my paper. I added the 'holes' with a punch and viola, notebook paper! I then used a dark blue ink for my star image and black ink for my sentiment. Added some sequins, DIY enamel dots and a wood veneer arrow. So, what do you think?!...

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

happy birthday happy birthday happy birthday

Hey y'all! Happy Sunday! And you know what time it is?!...It's time for another CAS on Sunday challenge! For this challenge it's a 'birthday to die for', meaning you must use at least one die on your card. How fun is this?!...


So, here's my card!


Oooooh, I had to do some thinking with this card! It took me several tries, to finally end up with this. I actually made this card late at night, without hardly any light. Though, I was happy about it and I was actually lovin' it! ;)

So, I used my star die on the base card, having it hang over the edge. Then I used my big star die with the little star die on the inside, thus giving me the star with it blank in the middle. Then added it to my base die cut on my card. Then to top everything off, added a little star, some DIY enamel dots (Thanks to my crafty friend Katie, you can read about her DIY enamel dots here) and sequins. And along the bottom, repeatedly stamping happy birthday. So, what do you think?!...

Are you ready to play with us?!...The winner for this challenge will have a wonderful opportunity of being our Guest Designer for the next challenge! How sweet is that?!...

Don't forget to swing on over to CAS on Sunday to show some love and see all the DT creations!!! ;)
