Hey y'all! Well, that sure didn't take me long, to come back! lol I, myself am surprised I made it back so soon!

Now, I'm sharing a card I whipped up for the current The Play Date Cafe challenge! I was stumped for a bit, on this challenge!

Four colors!!....Four colors to use!!...That's a good amount of colors, to use! lol And these are colors, I don't normally use much that made it a bit harder on me, too! But...I think I managed to do it?!

Thank you again, for stopping by and enjoy your day!! :)

Well, hello everyone!!

Hey y'all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas?!....The New Year, is right around the corner! With everything being so busy, I finally found some time to make a card!! :)

I was just playing around for fun. No challenge or anything, for this card! I did get some new supplies and was wanting to play with those. And that's what I did.

lol I knew what I did, after the fact. My blog address is: not what you see in the picture. lol Leave it to me, to do something like that!

Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoy your day!! I should be back before the New Year....but if not, have a Happy New Year! I wish you all, happiness and health in the New Year! :)

Make a wish

Hey y'all! I'm back today, to share a card I made for the current Casology challenge!!

I really got down to the wire, on this one! After seven (yes, seven.) mess ups, I finally got my card right! One thing about being a perfectionist, is I don't let little things slide. So, when I see the slightest crook in something, I keep fixing/trying/start over until it's straight to me (I'm that bad)! And that's what led me to waste seven cards...I couldn't get my sentiment straight...until now (my eighth card)!!

So, I saw "star" and thought about it. What came to me, was a twinkling star. You ever look up in the sky and out of all the stars, you find that one that seems to stand out, from the others?....Well, I always seem to find it that way.

For my card, I used some refill ink on a paint brush and flicked it onto my card for a bunch of stars. I then added my one little 'stand out' star. To make it stand out even more, I added a little rhinestone in the middle of it.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!! Merry Christmas! :)

Hey y'all! Just wanted to quickly, stop in and share a couple cards! Both cards I'm sharing today are for PSA Stamp Camp DT.

First up: Believe!

For some reason, the golden ticket in 'polar express' kept coming to me. Then I remember "believe"....From that point, I was set on figuring out how to translate 'that', into a card. I'm still not sure if it's exactly what I wanted it to look like?...Though, I'm happy with it. :)

Up next: Christmas Wreath!

I was having some fun with this card! I went for something festive! I really didn't know the outcome of this card, when I was making it. It was one of those 'go with the flow' type of things.

All the stamps used can be found at PSA Essentials. Also, you can find great deals on stamps and frequent giveaways at PSA Essentials Facebook page!

Thank you for stopping by and have a Merry Christmas! :)

Hey y'all! I just was stopping in real quick, to share a card. I made this card for the current, Casual Fridays Challenge!

So, here's my card!

I kept very CAS. I scored three lines down, on my card. Then added my {Congratulations}, which I used a few different inks on.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Hey y'all! Happy Friday!! What a crazy busy week.....and I have a feeling, next week is gonna be even crazier!! I'm sure it'll calm back down, after the holiday's. ;) I just have to wait, a little bit longer.

So, I'm here to share another card I made! I'm lovin' the fact, my creativity is back! :) My card today, is for the current Casology challenge. I missed last week's challenge because of my creativity issues. I sure wasn't gonna let that be the case, this week!

Once again, this card just came to me. I was thinking "gift" and gonna go off the whole "box present" thing, then something else came to me.

When I was little I always wanted a tricycle...though, I never got one. I had plenty of friends that had them but unfortunately, it was out of my parents budget. Then I always heard my mom tell me, my legs were too long and they would hit the handle bars. That I would grow out of it too fast and not be able to ride it for long. So, as I grew....I still never got a tricycle, but I did get a bike with training wheels! Those training wheels never really worked mom would hang on to the bike for two seconds, then she would let go of it. Eventually, I learned how to ride my bike. Though, it seemed like "stopping" took longer to learn, than riding the bike itself. I also, worked my way up to a banana seat bike!! Hey, for me that was like the cadillac, of bikes. You could get your friends on there, with you! lol :) Good times....

So this is my gift, to you! If you never had a tricycle either, you do now!! :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the weekend!!

At last!

Well, hello everyone!! At last....a card I'm finally happy with!! :) I can't tell you, how good it feels to have some creativity back!

So, this card I'm sharing today is for The Play Date Cafe challenge!! I saw these colors and was in love, with them!

And how 'bout my card!

This is the best picture, I'm gettin' today! We have nothing but clouds...

I normally, wouldn't think of using all these colors together. But I have to say, I really like them together!

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!!

Ho, ho, ho

Hey y'all! Happy Saturday...I hope you're enjoying this beautiful day?!! With all the craziness going on, I figured I better pause for a minute and try to get back on track! I've been wanting to make cards, so bad!! Unfortunately every time I try, nothing comes....I think that's a sign, I have too much on my plate right now?!

So today I'm stopping in, to share another one of my PSA Stamp Camp DT cards! Being all in the Christmas spirit, this card is perfect! :)

Gift tag

Hey y'all! I hope you're enjoying, this lovely Sunday?! :) Today, I'm sharing a gift tag...yes, a gift tag! I saw Casual Fridays challenge and thought I'd go for it!

I don't do many gift tags, so this was a little bit of a challenge, for me. I wanted to keep it CAS and somewhat "soft". After going pulling out some dies...I thought of the tag, as an ornament.

I think I did okay?! :) I didn't put a "to" or "from" because sometimes I think a tag, is just nice by itself.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Happy December 1st!!

Hey y'all!! Wow! December already??!! The last month, of this year?!! Oh, my....times just keeps flying on by!! I'm so ready for Christmas, I already have the movies starting!! :) As I'm typing, it just occurred to me, I should really start making my Christmas cards!!....I haven't made any, yet! They need to get in the mail, and soon!

Well, now on to my card. I am sharing a Christmas card, though it's for PSA Essentials Design Team! :) Perfect for the holiday's! Having some fun with my stamps, I did some long thinking. And somehow managed to come up with this!

To dress up my card some, I added little rhinestones. Used some flock for the snow. And cut out the little hat and added a foam square, on the back of it.

Celebrate, good times

Hey y'all!! I'm back real soon, with my second post of the day!! :)

This card I'm sharing is for the current Casology challenge! The cue word is "time", which doesn't seem to hard...but then again, it had my thinking!

Here's my card!

Wanted to show that my "picture" is a silver color, not black. And I added a couple tiny rhinestones to the "bubbles".
Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your Friday!

Just a thought

Hey y'all! This week sure seems, to flying on by! Where is the time going?!! :)

Today I'm sharing a card, I made for the current The Play Date Cafe challenge! I just received some new stamps and I couldn't wait to use them! And when I saw this challenge, they were gonna be used!! lol  I LOVE new stamps!! :)

Okay, so here's my card!

I sure hope my light, considers having enough "splash" of color?!! You know, lately I've been "winging it" with my cards and this shall be another!! lol I'm not sure if I just have too much on my plate?...or If I'm just completely out of it?! But I do think whatever it is, I believe it has some pluses on making cards! :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!!

Hey y'all! I just was stopping in real quick, to share a card I made for Casual Fridays challenge!!

Lately, I've been doing nothing but struggling with using certain colors, for challenges!....This card was no easier for me! It took some serious thinking....and thinking....and thinking! I hope you, enjoy! :)


Again, how did this card ever come to me?....I'm starting to think I really have no clue anymore, as to what I'm doing?!!! lol I couldn't even tell you, where to begin!

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!!

Hey y'all! Happy Saturday! Did everyone survive, Thanksgiving and Black Friday?!! :) I honestly, still feel stuffed from Thanksgiving! Though, I've been eating leftovers! lol As far as Black Friday goes....It's just not my kind of thing, to do.

Okay, so I saw The Play Date Cafe challenge and wanted to play again! :) However, I didn't really know, if I was gonna be able to get something whipped up or not...with so much going on and then, the colors for the challenge, were getting me stuck again! I don't know why, I keep having such a hard time with color challenges?...Hopefully, it starts to get a little easier for me! :)

So, here's my card!

Please note: The clip is actually a soft pink. For some reason, my pinks always look more red?...

Yep. I struggled, like last time. Then once again, something came to me! I was going through my papers and came across this lined paper. I thought it would be perfect because it pretty much had all the colors in it, but the slate. Can you tell, I was trying to make it somewhat easier on me? Then I was onto thinking. How was I going to use this paper, in my card?...Well, the lines made me think of notebook paper. So, I added a few holes to the side of it. Then I felt, something was need at the top. I use gonna use a folder tab, of some sort but wasn't feeling it. After going through my stash of goods, I came across this little heart clip. I thought it was a nice little touch. :) And just for another little 'pop', I added a tiny light green rhinestone, to the inside of the heart.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!!

Hey y'all!! I made it back before, Thanksgiving!! :) I really wasn't planning on it but this card was just too perfect, not to share! :)

I saw the CASology Challenge and wanted to whip something up for it! So here's my card!

I saw "Gobble" and was gonna do some whipped potatoes, on a whisk in a bowl. I had a total plan for it....and I did try it. It did look good and realistic, with what I did and used but it just wasn't hitting the spot for me. So, then I went with "Turkey". However, I don't even own one single turkey stamp!! So, then the thinking began...I ended up using all die cuts and hand cutting the, beak, feet, and waddle (I hope waddle, is what you call that red thing? daughter said the gobbler and waddle). I chose for the greeting to say, "enjoy"....I figured no matter if your eating turkey, ham, pie, fit! :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving!! :)

Hey y'all! I just wanted to stop in real quick and wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!!

I am figuring, I probably won't post anything until after Thanksgiving?!...If I somehow manage to get some cards done, you"ll know and it will be quite the surprise! :) Always around this time of year, thing's start getting overwhelming!! I still can't believe, Thanksgiving's right around the corner and then suddenly, Christmas is upon us!!...Oh, how quick time flies!

So, while my blog may be quiet...for a little bit. It's gonna be active, in my household! Especially, with all the cooking and baking, I have to do! And Thanksgiving is the day we put up our Christmas tree!! :)  Please don't ask, how I'm gonna I really, haven't figured that out yet! Though, in the end...It's all worth it! :)  In the meantime, have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy, everything about it!! :)

Thank you for stopping by and see you all, real soon!!

Shaker card!

Hey y'all! Hope you're enjoying this beautiful day!?.....Well, I'm here to share with you another PSA Essentials card!!

Today's card is a, "shaker card"! And in perfect time, for the holidays! :)

Minus the mess of glitter, I had. It was a fun card, to make! I really don't make much of shaker cards, but thought I would change it up some.

All the stamps I used, are from PSA Essentials. For my Snowman and tree, I did some masking, so my snowman could be over my tree a little. I then added some little rhinestones and colored my snowman some. For the shaker part. I added white glitter, inside. I was gonna use beads, of some sort. Though, I thought glitter would be the closet thing, to snow.

Inside of card.

Now, don't forget! You can find tons more inspiration and how to use these stamps at PSA Stamp Camp! Also, at PSA Essentials facebook page, you can find great deals on their stamps. As well as, frequent giveaways!

Casology, Guest Designer!

Hey y'all!! I'm am so excited today....because....I'm the "Guest Designer" this week, over at Casology!!! :)

The cue card, this week is: Thanks! I created this CAS card by, adding a little touch of ribbon, along with a polka dot brad. Super quick and easy! And just look at all that pretty white! :)

Please note: My solid ribbon is not as red, as it's showing. More of a fuschia color/deep pink. Hard to capture, sorry about that.

Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure to head over to Casology...So much fun and inspiration!! :)

Hey y'all! Good Monday morning!! Well, I wanna start this week off right!...So, what better way, than with a card! :)

This card I'm sharing is for The Play Date Cafe challenge! Okay, and let me be honest. I wanted to play along, from the get go! However, I was starting to think it wasn't gonna happen. I struggled and I mean struggled, with this color challenge! For some reason color challenges seem difficult for me? most people probably find it easy. Anyhoo, I managed to come up with a card!

How this even came to me, I don't know. I was using the hearts and playing around with them on some scrap paper. I was lining them up differently, swtiching the colors around, and then the whole "tic-tac-toe" thing came to me. Then I had the "love" come to mind....It was just one thing, after another. :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!

-Just a note to say-

Hey, y'all! Happy Sunday, I hope you're all enjoying this beautiful day!?! :) I just wanted to stop in real quick and share a card I made for this week's, Casual Fridays challenge!

And a "Woohoo" to me...I'm ON TIME!! lol Seeing what this week's challenge is, I knew I wanted to play and was determined NOT to make the same mistake, as last time! So, with that being said....Here's my card!

I really like the outcome, of my card! I wasn't sure on the whole "torn" paper thing but I think I made it work....I just hand tore my paper strips. I tucked my bottom one, slightly under my bird paper. And I added foam circles, on the back of my bird paper. Just enough, to give it a nice little "pop". :)

**Note: I did not use any washi tape, on my card. In fact, I don't even own any! lol It's all paper!...If I'm passing paper off as washi tape, then that's darn right AWESOME!! :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!
