Coffee Lovers, bloghop!

 For my Poppy Sketches post, please scroll down. 

Hey, y'all! Again, Happy Monday! :) Today, also marks Nation Coffee Day and with that being said, why not celebrate it with a blog hop?!...I'm joining in on the fun at Chaitali's blog! :) If you haven't checked it out yet, be sure too! There's a lot of fun going on over there! ;)



So, here's my card!


Once again, I'm playing with Lawn Fawn! I think this set works perfectly, for a coffee lovers challenge...don't you?!...

Nothing but a short and sweet post. ;)  I'm going to be doing some hopping! Though, I also have one sick kiddo, today. :( So, I'm doing a bit of juggling around with things!

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!



Happy Halloween

Hey y'all! Happy Monday! Today, we have a brand new sketch at Poppy Sketches! And another fun one it is! ;)



So, here's my take on it!


Keeping things fairly simple. I focused all my colors in my 'character'. I actually, pulled out some Copics for that! ;) Then, did some cutting. For my sentiment, I stamped it 'running down' my card and added the lines with a black pen/marker. To finish things off, I added a few black enamel dots. Simple, yeah?!...So what do you think?!...

Be sure to swing on over to Poppy Sketches to see all the DT creations! Sure hope you'll join us?!!...We have another fun sponsor, Starving Artistamps! (the sentiment and little character above is from them.) Hope to see you join us! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

believe...you've got this

Hello, friends! Happy Sunday! I'm swinging on in because we have a brand new challenge up at CAS on Sunday!  And another fun one it is! ;)



So, this time we want you to 'case' this card.


And here's my take on it!


Trying to keep things nice and simple. I decided to make a tag, rather than having a strip of paper. And I was going to die cut my tag with a word or even a design, but after some thinking decided not to. So, I went die cutting my word in gold metallic paper and adhering it at a slant. Then, the rest just sort of came together. :) So, what do you think?!...

Be sure to swing on over to CAS on Sunday and see all the DT creations! And if you join us, you have a chance at being our Guest for the next challenge!...How fun is that?!!...Hope to see you there! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

For you...tea and cookies

Hey y'all! Happy Wednesday, we're half way through the week already! And I'm still not sure where the time is going?!! ;)

I'm swinging on in, to share another 'little' card with you. No challenges or DT work, here. Just for fun.


I am LOVING Lawn Fawn's new releases!!! They are just soooo sweet! :) (and this is all just 'in my opinion')

So, playing around. I ended up using the stamps and dies together. And mixing two different sets together. I started with my cookies and plate. Then, thought of 'wood'. Yes, wood. I think I was along the lines of thinking 'picnic table' or something. ;) So, after going through my scraps of paper, I found some wood! lol (does that even sound right?...) Anyhow, did some trimming with my wood and decided to let one side slightly over hang my card. (and I'm sorry, but I'm about dying from laughing over here about my post! lol Please forgive me, maybe you'll have a laugh too?!...This wood thing is just not sounding right.) Okay. After I laid my wood piece, added on my plate, cookies, and tea on my card (though, I did NOT adhere anything, yet). I placed everything so I could see where to stamp my sentiment and steam at. Once figuring that out, I stamped on my sentiment and steam (and my steam is very light. So, hopefully you can see it some?). Then adhered my wood, cookies, and tea. So what do you think?!...

And hey! I could have sat here and probably change my whole post, but why not have a laugh or smile?!...Hopefully, I'm not the only one that found my post to be somewhat funny?!...It could be time for another cup of coffee or maybe I had too much?! ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

The SRM Challenge

Hey y'all! Just swinging on in, to share another project I made for the current The SRM Challenge. This time I changed things up a bit. Went from making a card, to making a gift bag. ;)


So, here's my project!


Keeping my bag nice and simple. I used some felt to make the apples. Which I used a circle die and then did some 'free hand' with my scissors to form an apple, All the leaves and stems were also cut 'free hand'. After all the cutting, I assembled each apple together and adhered to my bag. For my little banner, I used an SRM muslin bag and just cut a banner from it (which I did pull some of the 'threads' from the edges of it). And to top things off, added my sticker to the banner and one little gold sequins. So, what you think?!...

Be sure to swing on over to The SRM Challenge to see all the DT creations! You can also see what's up for grabs and all the info you may need! Hope to see you there!!! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

sweet wishes

Hey, y'all! Happy Thursday! :) Hope all is well?!...I'm swinging in today, to share a sweet little card. And when say 'little' I do mean little. ;)

I was also going to enter this into the last Casology challenge, but time got away from me (and not to mention the weather). So I wasn't able to get it uploaded in time. :( Though, I'm still gonna share it because I think it's too cute, not to! ;)


Honestly, I was just having fun with this card. I have some of Lawn Fawn's new stamps and still need to put them to use more! So, I'm starting now! ;) When I saw the last Casology challenge being 'three'. I thought, a cookie, a glass of milk, and a plate. There's a good three, yeah?!...But then I also added little groups of three sequins, too. So what do you think?!...

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

I'm thinking of you

Hey ya'll! Boy, oh boy, it's a busy day on my blog! ;) Okay, if you missed or are looking for my first post from Waffle Flower, please scroll down. So, I'm back today because we have a brand new challenge up at Poppy Sketches! And another fun one it is! ;)


So, here's my take!



Once again, sticking with things nice and simple. I used my feathers with the three colors and stamped them on my card. Added my sentiment in black and to finish things off, added a few clear sequins to my feathers. I also did decide to flip the sketch. Instead of having my placement on the right side, I went for having it on the left side. So, what you think?!...

Don't forget to swing on over to Poppy Sketches to see all the DT creations! Our sponsor for this challenge is Stampendous. Which I used on my card. ;) ...Hope to see you there! ;)

Thank for stopping by!
Enjoy!
