Have an ice day!

Good morning friends! Hope you are doing well!!

I've got a quick little number to share today!! As you may recall, we've been on a bit of a penguin kick in my house!!! This month's release is keeping that alive!! The Waddle Pals set is SO cute...and with all the different penguins..there is just a load of fun to be found!!

I pulled out a Heidi Swapp stencil for the "icy" background and some blue distress inks. The little ice berg is from the Chilly mini set, which happens to be free this month with orders $40 or more!! 

I hope you are doing well and not too chilly!! We've been enjoying the most glorious weather!!! We are getting a little rain today, but that is to be expected in our neck of the woods!!!

Take care and see you soon!!!

Love You!

Good morning!! I hope today finds you well!!

I love, love, background secret there. BUT when you pair a background die like this beautiful Quatrefoil card panel from Frantic Stamper with GOLD cardstock!??? Well, I'm in love!!!

I thought this beautiful background would be perfect with some of my new flowers--sorry, can't stop with them!!!--from Maggie Holmes. One package of flowers has SO many beautiful blooms...hard not to use them on every card!! I finished the card with a pretty Love U sentiment and there you have it! I know just who will be receiving this in the mail!

Take care and see you soon!!

Good morning and happy day!! We have been having THE most beautiful weather ever!! October 1st my kids were playing outside at the splash pad!! Who would have thought!? Not a cloud in the sky, 78 degrees and just pure beautiful weather!! In October!? Well, we'll keep it!! I think the best part is that we are getting a little chilly in the mornings as the kids leave for Fall has arrived, but it is just bringing sunshine and blue skies!! 

I have a fun little penguin love today! I used the cute little guys from the Waddle Pals set. Oh, I think they are super cute! I colored them with some copics and easy peasy was done!!

I used some circle dies to make the windows for each of the penguins--I did put acetate and foam behind the front panel too, so there is some fun dimension! I love this hello sentiment too!!! It's from the Lite Brite set, oh, you know I love that one!!

Hope you have a great one friends!!! Take care and see you soon!!

Here is my card!! I just finished an order for a bundle of birthday cards and this is the one I made for the "little girl" cards! I pulled out some Avery Elle goodness! I just love this little balloon dog!! Isn't she so cute!? And with a bit of glossy real life she looks beautiful and glossy!!

I used the Rounded Diamonds stamps and dies, and that cute sentiment is also Avery Elle!!

I hope you get a chance to play along with us at Retro Sketches!!...the gallery has been full of such fun cards!! Take care and see you soon!!

You make me Smile!!

Good morning! And happy weekend! 
Can you even believe that the end of September is looming!!? That is so incredibly hard to believe it just floors me!! I must say we are loving the little tiny bit of fall that has started to fill the air!! I sure do love the joy of seeing your breath in the mornings!! I am all for sweaters and layers and I am just ready to pull them all out!!!

I used the fun Big Time set for this card again. I tell you, it's an awesome sentiment set!! It makes quick and easy cards..

I simply used a stencil and distress inks for the background, then added the black sentiment! Easy peasy...oh, and let's not forget the delightful sequins!!

Take care...tootles for now and have a wonderful weekend!!!
