Come and play

Hey y'all!! Happy Thursday! What a BUSY week and it's not even over, yet!! I'm really looking forward to the weekend! :)

Today, I'm sharing a card I made for the current Casology challenge. This is a fun, one!

So, I decided I would go 'old school' with my game.

Who didn't love marbles, as a kid?!! I remember always being fascinated by that big shooter marble. How they had colors inside, mixed up/around one was so cool looking at them, trying to figure out how they did that. Even to this day, I still think marbles are cool! :)

For my shooter marble, I added some different inks together and then used glossy accents, to cover it. I added my circle, using a white gel pen. And then for my little marbles, I used plain old regular pearls.

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

with love (x2)

Hey y'all! Happy Sunday! It's a beautiful day here in Florida! The sun is shinning...the sky is clear...the temperature is nice...what more, could you ask for?! :)

So, I wanna stop in real quick and share a couple cards. I saw this week's Casual Fridays challenge and wanted to play! Now, I don't always use much of markers. But have have Copic's that have been sitting (for way too long) and figured I needed to put them to use. So, here's me card(s)!

I'm only entering in my 'purple' heart card. This was the first card I created, for the challenge. After I was done, I thought it needed something else?....So, I then created a second. Pretty much doing the same thing, though adding some pattern paper. After being done with my second card, I thought my first card looked better?....So, I decided I'm sticking with my first card! Though, I'm still gonna share my second card. :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Thanks a Latte

Hey y'all! Hope you're all having a great week, so far?!! My week has been nothing but busy! Thankfully, my husband has tomorrow and Friday off! I'm looking to really escape! ;)

Okay, so today's card! It's a fun one, if I might say so myself! :) I saw this week's Casology challenge and was wanting to play again! I thought about this one. I was just gonna simple and do the whole drink on a card thing....but oh, nooooo...That would have been just too easy for me, right?! lol Well, here's what I did!

No die cutting, here! Nope! I used my paper cutter and somehow I managed to get my 'cup' right, the FIRST time!!! That really is a first, for me! If only you knew, how many pieces of cardstock I go through!

So after cutting my cup, I somehow managed to cut my white 'lid' and 'sleeve' to fit! Yeah, that's another first too! lol I added my few stamps. Colored in my coffee beans with colored pencils. Then added some ink around the edges of my sleeve.

I can't even believe my vision, came together! Yeah, that's somewhat a first too! lol

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

Hey y'all! Happy Monday! I'm here today, to share I card I made for the current 10 min Craft Dash!!

Now, I haven't played in awhile. I saw the colors and instantly, was in love with them! These challenge are always fun! Though, I'm always a wreak because of the time factor!!

So, I figure the best way to go is CAS (though, don't I always do CAS?! Really, this should be a piece of cake, for me. However, being the perfectionist that I am....some of these CAS cards will take me FOREVER!! Well, this card didn't and here it is!

This card took me 5 min. and 7 sec. to make.

Yes! These colors made me think of "love". Maybe the softness, maybe just the hint of pink with grey?...I don't know, it just did. :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!!

Hey y'all! Happy Tuesday!! :) Today, I'm sharing a card I made for the current Casology challenge!

Oh my! A blueprint! Yep.

This was the best light, I could get today. Have some clouds, floatin' above. :)

I've been eyeing some blueprint stamps for quite some time now. Though I have yet, to buy any. So, what's one to do??...Make their own, of course!!

I used three different blue inks. I used a house stamp, along with some fine line stamps. Used a pen to add my numbers and 'ends' to my lines. This card was fun! :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Just saying hello.

Hey y'all! Happy Monday!! Is it really only, Monday?! I don't know why but it just doesn't feel like a Monday, to me?....I could be just so tired, that I really have no clue as to where I even am?!! lol Just one of these weeks!

Okay. So, I'm sharing a card I made for Retro Sketches challenge! This is another fun sketch to work with! Though, it did take me a minute to come up with something. Here it is!

Just wanted to show an up close shot of the,  pattern paper and wood buttons. :)

Going off the sketch, I kept it simple. For some reason this card calls out "tropical" to me?! Not sure if it's the colors, wood, or it all it wrapped up together....but that what I see! :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Happy Life

Hey y'all! It's my second post, for the day...woohoo! :) So, now I'm sharing a card I made for the current CAS(E) This Sketch!!

Now normally, I wouldn't do black hearts (I just always feel, they should be some sort of red/pink/teal/etc.?...). Though, I'm really lovin' these black hearts! I glittered them up, twice! I wanted them to stand out and I think I accomplished that?!! ;)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!!

You did it!

Hey y'all!! I'm just stopping in to share a card, I made for Casual Fridays challenge! I had A LOT of fun with this card! :)

Normally, challenges seem to get me somewhat in a bind, at times. My mind isn't always clear on what to do...or even how to do, certain things I'm picturing in my head. Well, that has changed! Especially, with this card!

I used only ONE stamp! And that was my sentiment. I got a little creative....For my green circles, I used the top of a pencil eraser. For my black 'slashed' circle, I used the top of a lid to a bottle of flowers. For my pink 'splashes' of ink, I used a mini mister, which I added water to with some drops of ink. I mixed it up, and on a scrap piece of paper, sprayed it down (which I didn't press all the way down) and then held it there and pressed again (over my card), leaving me with tiny slashes, rather than a whole lot of 'splash'.

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

Happy birthday

Hey y'all! Happy Monday! By now I think most kids are back in school or are about to be?....My kids go back tomorrow and so do I! lol I have to volunteer tomorrow and on Wednesday, so what a busy week it'll be! I'm not sure if I'm ready for all that?!....I've been enjoying my time home. :) Though, I guess thing's will fully be back to normal...and very soon!

So, my card I'm sharing with you is for the current Retro Sketches challenge!! Such a great sketch (as they always are)...Here's my card!

I went with some soft colors and actually made this for my cousin's daughter. Her birthday's coming up and figured this would work perfectly. :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!!

CAS-Thank you

Hey y'all!! Hope you're enjoying this lovely Sunday?!! :) I just wanted to stop in real quick and share a card I made, for Casual Fridays challenge!

I went for showing off my "white" again. Added some embossing and a tiny rhinestone to my "o" in "you".

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

Something, a little different....

Hey y'all!! Happy Saturday!! Today I'm sharing a card with you, that I made for The Play Date Cafe challenge!

I saw the challenge colors and of course, these were colors I wouldn't normally use together! lol
So, this card is a little different for me. I usually stay doing CAS cards and show off the "white". However, with this card I somehow explored a little. I really don't know how this even came to me?!......Though, I do actually like it (a lot) and I do consider it to still be CAS (maybe just with a little more humph?!?).

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

Embrace a new journey...

Hey y'all! Happy New Year!! It actually feels really good, to be starting a 'New Year'! I wish you all happiness, health and everything more in 2013!! :)

Now, on to my card. I'm sharing today, a card I made for the current Casology challenge! The fact, I thought up of a card today, amazed me. I put on my thinking cap, for this challenge!

When I saw the cue card being 'new', I wanted to do something outside the box again. So, this is what I came up!

Embrace a new journey! I think each year, you get a new journey and why not, embrace it?!! :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the New Year!!
