Take 2

Okay, I'm back! And quick! ;) I have two more cards to share for today. I decided to try my hand again at watercoloring for the current Lawnscaping Challenge.

Here's what I came up with!

Okay, so this card didn't actually come together, until after I made this card below. After, making my first card, I kept looking at it. And then a thought popped into head! And that thought was 'why, not watercolor the background under the vellum'. So, I had to try it and see what would happen...I thought the end result added a nice 'pop' to my vellum scene and then I couldn't decide which one I liked better! lol So, I figure I'd just share both. ;)

Thanks for stopping by, again!
Enjoy your day!

sunshine and rainbows

Hey y'all! Happy Wednesday! Hope all is well?!...I certainly, have a busy weekend/week/month coming up! I have some family visiting this next week and then after that, I get some more family visiting! And while all that is going on, my kids (and this time all 4 of them!) will be going back to school! Yay! For Mom! lol ;) Honestly, it'll be nice to have a break. Though, I'm certain I'm gonna miss them like crazy! Not sure what I'll do with all my free time!?!...

Okay, so today I'm sharing a card a made for the current Casology challenge.

Here's my take on it!

I've been seeing felt used 'here and there' for awhile and finally, decided that I really needed some! ;) So, what better than to make a felt rainbow?!...I chose some lighter colors for my rainbow and I did a little stenciling in the background, for a couple clouds. Hopefully, you can see them? I was gonna leave my card with just the felt rainbow and sentiment. But then, thought 'sequins!' and added some. :) So, what do you think?!...

Just for fun

Hey y'all! Happy Saturday! Hope you're enjoying the weekend so far?!...I've been having some fun today. :)

Late last night, I got out my Waffle Flower stamps and tried to create some stuff. It wasn't happening. lol So today, I tried again. And wouldn't you know I ended up with not one, but two cards!!! Yay! :)

For both cards I used the 'Bowtiful' and 'Flower Circles' stamp sets. So, what do you think?!...

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your weekend and I'll see y'all soon! :)

Hey y'all! Happy Thursday! Just swinging on in to share a card I made for the current Lawnscaping challenge! Yep. I'm playing along again! ;) And this time it's all about watercolor!

So, here's my take!

Lately, I've been watercoloring right and left! So, this was fitting! ;) However, this card took me many, many, many takes, to get to this! And you know why?...Watercolor shouldn't be hard, and really it's not. Though, for some apparent reason, it was. First, my crafty mojo decided it was a good time to leave. So I was dealing with that. Second, every time I got out my watercolors, things just fell apart. Spilled water everywhere (which I was trying NOT to do that and let's not even ask how one does that). Then had different brushes lined up, only to forget what color I used for which brush (that made another mess). After all this, I figure I better just call it quits. So, I slept on it. I actually had a dream of a card (yes, I have dreams about cards). Though, only to forget what I saw!...So, really no help. You see how this is turning out? ;)

Well, needless to say, I finally came up with something. Though, I'm not sure if I'm totally lovin' it?!...So, I probably will have to play around some more!? ;) What are thoughts about it?...And yeah, for some reason I seem to stick with the blues/greens/yellows...maybe because of summer, I don't really know?...Think I may have to try some new colors! ;)

Thanks for stopping by! See y'all soon!
Enjoy your day!

Hey y'all! Happy Wednesday! Already the middle of the week. can you believe it!?!...Okay, so I'm stopping in to share a card for the current Poppy Sketches challenge! How can one resist playing, when it says 'Glittery Gold'?!! ;)

So, here's what I came up with!

Really, stuck true to the sketch. I decided to make a little faux pocket, and added little stitching using one of the stamps from the 'Bowtiful' set from WaffleFlower. The hearts were from the same set, too. Then I decided for my glittery gold, to use a 'love' die and sponge it up with Brillance Galaxy Gold ink. And to top everything off, added a little bit of twine with a glittery gold in it. :) So, what do you think?!...

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see y'all soon!
Enjoy your day!

'Merry' Monday

Hey y'all! Happy Monday...It's time for another Merry Monday challenge! And this time it's all about using ribbon and a button(s).

So, here's what I came up with!

Yep. I actually made a little shaker card! Really, I was just playing around, having fun and somehow managed to create a shaker. I added some light snowflakes for the background and a '25'. I filled my shaker with some sequins and a button. Cute, yeah?...

So, are you ready to play along?!...Be sure to swing on over to Merry Monday and see all the DT creations! Hope to see you there! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
