Want to cuddle

Hey y'all! Happy Wednesday! It's a stormin' crazy! I snapped my photo just in time. I have nothing now but dark skies, wind, rain, and plenty more comin'!

I'm sharing a card a made for the current Casology challenge.What a fun challenge this week! I was trying to think outside the box on this cue word, though nothing came to me but and animal. So, I just went with it!

This may just be me?....It could be something on my screen?....I haven't gotten that far yet! lol Though, after loading my card up, there seems to be dark 'smudges/spots' on my card....Please no my card is SOLID WHITE, no dark spots on it! 

Isn't this little guy cute?!.....I colored him in with some 'spectrum noir' markers. Now, I have never used these markers until now. I will say, they are different from copics but I think they work great too! :) Hopefully, my coloring is on par?....I was gonna chose some browns for the fur, but wanted to go with something a little different to make him stand out more. I also cut this little guy out and added some foam squares on back, for some added dimension. Then, added a little 'bubble' with my sentiment inside. Simple, right?,,,,, :)

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Capture Life

Hey y'all! I'm back with a second post!....Whaaaat! Two posts in one day?!! lol I'm surprised myself, that two cards came to me! ;)

So, this one I made for the current Simon Says Stamp challenge. And yeah, I was getting down to the wire on this one, too! This week's theme "Take a picture". What fun, this card was! :)

Really, I was just having fun! I didn't know if it would turn out to be something I would like or not! But I must say, I do like it!

Using some washi tape, throwing down some ink mist, and adding some sequins. How can you go wrong, here?! :)

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

You made my day...

Hey y'all! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend?! Nothing to exciting here, just took it easy and enjoy the company of our neighbors. :)

Today, I'm stopping in to share a card a made for the current The Play Date Cafe challenge. And yep! I'm down to the wire on this one....but thankfully, I made it in time! ;)

Don't even ask how I came up with this one! lol Starting to think that 'nights', work in my favor. :) Now I normally, would have used black ink for my leaves outline. Though, once I colored it in, I actually liked it with the green outline. Maybe I'm wrong?....But that's what it is. :) And for my little birdie, I used a wood veneer and then 'flocked' it.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!

The good life

Hey y'all! Happy Sunday! Today is a brand new challenge at CAS on Sunday! Oooooh, and what a challenge this is....make a masculine card!

I think we all know how hard masculine cards can be?! I really had no clue where to start. Though once again, something came to me! :)

Yep. This is it! The good life. What man doesn't like fishing?! ;) I used some Hero Arts shadow ink for the background of water. Then added my fishing pole and fish. Which the fish I stamped a little off the edge. I was wondering to myself if my card needed something more....but decided that it was perfect how it was. :)

So, are you ready to make a masculine card?! If you do, you have a chance to win a wonderful prize from Iva Nova Chest!

Thank for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Hey y'all! Happy Friday!

Hey everyone! Yeah, it's been a minute since I've posted anything...Sorry about that.

This week has been quite 'interesting'. On Tuesday, my youngest swallowed a penny. Which led me to take him to the ER because of how he was feeling. Once there, we found out it was lodged in the middle of his chest. After that, they transferred us to the children's hospital by ambulance. Once there, it was another waiting game. They were gonna put him under and remove the coin, but the doctor didn't want to have to do that because of the risks involved. So, they ended up putting a tube through his nose and pushing it down, into his stomach. Now were home, though it's another waiting game. He has 3 days to pass it, otherwise we have to go back. If we end up going back, I have no clue what they'll do. I'm crossing my fingers.

So you can see, an 'interesting' week and this all happened the night before the last day of school for my other kids. I did get my other kids to school, for the last day. Though a lot of running around for me and not really any sleep. The fact it's Friday, I don't even know how it's already here!

Okay, enough rambling. ;) I did stop in to share a card too! I'm not feeling the best today but somehow I manage to get a card made. I made this card for the current Casual Fridays challenge! It's been far too long, since I've played with them! I must try and keep up with things! ;)

Here is my card!

Honestly, I'm not sure if I'm lovin' this card or not??....I feel like my creativity is in some other place! It took me card after card, just to get this result. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day?....Let's hope so! :)

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Friday! :)

Happy Sunday!

Hey y'all! Happy Sunday! I just wanted to stop in quickly and share a card I made for the current Casology challenge.

Talk about cutting the time close...and having stormy weather on top of it, I didn't know if I was gonna even make it time! But, I did!! :)

I real just was having some fun with this card. I didn't know if or how it was gonna turn out....though, I must say, I do kind of love it! ;)

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

I Miss You.

Hey y'all! I hope all is well with everyone?! I'm doing okay. Just staying busy and still trying to get my creativity back! Things are going to be a little rough for me the next couple of days. Tomorrow, is my Dad's birthday. I have no idea how I'm gonna feel and I really still want to celebrate it somehow...just haven't figured it out yet.....I'm sure it will come to me. Then, on Friday I celebrate my oldest son's birthday. Which he will be 7! Boy, kids sure grow up quick! ;)

Anyhow, I'm really stopping in today to share a card I made for the current 'Less is More' challenge. I have never played with them, until today. So hopefully, I have things right (if you know what I mean)! ;) Here is my card!

Use a colored base card (other than white/black/kraft/ivory). Well, I did that! And as many of you know, I kept it CAS! So, I think I'm good....It just comes down to my stamping. I used not one, not two, but three completely different stamps! None of them even went together, nor did I even buy them together! I actually have had all of them but the sentiment, for quite sometime now. Just putting some 'oldies' to use! ;)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day! And please excuse my moment of silence, for the next couple days....I will be back soon! :)

Celebrating you today....

Hey ya'll! Happy Sunday and Happy Mother's day! :) Hope you all have a beautiful day! I just wanted to stop in and share our new challenge over at CAS on Sunday! :)

This time 'round, you need to use 'pastel' colors. And here is my card!

Now, I had somewhat a hard time with this card. I know what 'pastel' colors are. Though, for some reason I have a hard time putting those colors on paper. It may not look like it, but I did and do! I tried pastel colored base cardstock and it didn't seem to work for me (at least I didn't think it did). So, then I just thought of pastel ink colors. Even after I fished my card I still wasn't sure if my colors were 'pastel'! Though, after asking for opinions, I came to realize they are. :)

I think pastel colors are always gonna give me a hard time....I do love them, but I'm not sure if they love me?...... ;)

So, if your ready for the challenge...head on over to CAS on Sunday and join in on the fun! :) There's a wonderful prize from Iva Nova Chest up for grabs, too!

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Hexagon (miss you)

Hey y'all! Boy, time just keeps flying on by!....Where have I been?! lol I've been in a crafting slump, that's where I been! Well, I'm no longer in my crafting slump...I actually made a card I'm happy about! :)

The card I share with you today, is for the current Casology challenge! I sure have missed the last few challenges and hopefully I don't do that again...I miss playing with them every week! ;)

Oooooh, keeping it simple and putting to use some good stamps, I ended up with this!

Nothing too hard about it. I stamped on my hexagon, then 'masked' it off and added my image on the inside. Then stamped on my sentiment. And for an extra little 'pop', I added some clear gemstone accents. :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Little sweet pea

Hey y'all! Happy Saturday! :) I've been trying to create and trying to take photos....Though, my weather lately has been nothing but storms. Warm but cloudy and we're right around the corner from our 'wet' season. So, I'll only have limited hours in each day to snap some good photos....If I'm lucky. ;) Anyhoo....enough about weather, on to my card!

I made my card for the current Runway Inspired Challenge. I had to think about this one for a minute. I wanted to something a little more 'fancy' for this card. Here's what I ended up with! :)

Talk about a 'time consuming' card....I couldn't even tell you how long this card took me! The 'time consuming' part came in, when I was having to peel the back off the glitter tape. Not so much the strip of tape, but those little circles of tape! What was I thinking??!!...Though in the end, I'm pretty happy with my outcome. :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!
