Thanks for everything!

Good morning friends!! I hope your weekend is going well! We have had all sorts of fun...and glad to have a day to rest today!! Today is sneak peek day #2 for the new release over at TAWS!! You are going to love these new stamps...today I am sharing a set called Tickle Me Happy! A fantastic feather set...I have made a bunch of cards with it already, and can see many more in the future!!
I used a chevron stencil, and added a bit of light squeezed lemonade distress ink to make my background....love that color yellow!! My feather was stamped in Avery Elle raspberry ink...I also love that color and ink!!:) A bit of white thread, some clear sequins from PPP, and there you have it!

Be sure to head over to TAWS blog to see a few more samples with this stamp set...and stay tuned or the Blog Hop that will take place Tuesday...free stamps are always fun!!!

Take care and have a great one friends!!

Morning and happy Saturday!! I'm popping in with a new Retro Sketch!! Can't believe how fast time goes from one sketch to the next!!:) This sketch is based off a great card of Erin's...look how awesome! Isn't it a beauty!? So, here is the sketch...

And here is my card!
I wish I was a better photographer...the string behind the "Thanks" turned out SO cool..but was super hard to capture on the camera! I loved the paper...where I usually start for inspiration! It's from Maggie Holmes...then some pretty steel looking sequins...yum! The sentiment is from Savvy Stamps.
I hope you get a chance to play along with us over on the Retro Sketch blog!! I'd love to see what you come up with ! Take care friends and thanks a bundle for stopping by today!!

Happy Birthday!!

Morning friends!! Happy to be popping in for another Be Inspired Challenge today!!
The inspiration photo is awesome...right!?
I loved the colors--dark chocolate and mint--YUM!

I used a few images from the Stomper, Livin' Fossils, and Rock Solid stamp sets for this card! I a I thought it was fun to have a little egg hatching as a birthday card! I seem to always be running low on thank you cards and birthday cards, so this will help the stash!!
Come play along with the challenge this week!! We love seeing what you are inspired by! Take care and see you tomorrow for another new Retro Sketch!

Wish Big...

Good morning! Hope your day is going well! Happy hump day already!? Amazing!

I am popping in with a little birthday number...have to say, I LOVE this little Dino in bright pink!! Isn't it amazing what a difference the color of ink makes!? It's been a while since I've colored with these brights...LOVE them!!
This fun Dino and wish sentiment are from the Livin' Fossils set. I used some Echo Park paper strips...only have a few strips of that great stripe pattern left. Oh, how I love it!!

Take care friends! I've been busy with some new stamps so there are some fun things to share in the coming days...yea!! Stay tuned, thanks a bundle for stopping by and see you soon!!

This is my second post for today...if you'd like to see another really fun TAWS Dino....scroll down the page a bit..:)

Morning!! Happy Saturday! Wow, what a week! I can't believe today is Saturday already! I feel like it should maybe be Tuesday, or Wednesday...it went SO fast this week!!
Saturday means another new Retro Sketch! This week is another fun one...as always!! Based on a card, from Arielle. So, here is the sketch for the week.

 And here is my card! As usual, this card started with some delicious paper!!:) I was walking through Michaels for a few minutes this week and found a great Maggie Holmes Collection--a "best of" and let me tell you...it is delightful!! All sorts of awesome inside!! 
So my paper is from AC, Maggie Holmes, my thanks...isn't that die a delightful delight!? It's from Savvy Stamps. It was picked up at Impress the other day...and I can tell you, it will be making it's way here a bunch!! Such a fun script font!!
Any whoot, have a great day!! Take care and enjoy our last few days of September! I can't believe how time is flying...is just because I have a baby?! Or is everyone's time marching super fast!?

I LOVE you...

Happy Weekend!! It's a going to be another fast one...where does the time go!? I sure am thankful for the weekend, although it goes super fast, I love us all being together!!

Today, I used my Stomper Dinosaur. I have to say, I really love having SVG files for TAWS! It is so great to have my silhouette working and make me a bunch of cuts and then just have a bundle in my stamp sleeve..it's the little things that make me happy!! I colored him nice and bright with copics. I used some distress ink and a stencil for the background. My sentiment is from the Stomper set also, I just omitted some of the other parts of the bigger sentiment. I used a tiny heart die from SSS for my little pink heart!

Take care peeps. Be safe. Love on your family. I have another post today, for the newest Retro Sketch!! Stay tuned!!
