Let's Party!!

Good morning!! Today is the fun TAWS blog hop!!!
 
It will be SO much great stuff...you will love this release!!
 
I saw these cute birds in the Flap Happy set--isn't that the greatest name!!?? --and thought how fun it would be to put them sitting all together on a wire...So I drew a wire, stamped all the cuteness, colored and then added the fun sentiment from the BIG time set.

 
Here is a little close up of the details on the birds....a bit of glossy accents on the glasses, and some on the beaks too!! And what bird is complete without a bit of shimmer!!?

I know you will love the release and it will make your heart so happy!!! There are more details on the TAWS blog today, so head over and start hopping!!!

You make me Smile!

Hello!! How are you doing today!!? I hope you are doing great!
 
I am excited to share a sneak peek with you today!! This awesome set is called Big Time. It's an awesome big font set! It's seriously fantastic!
 
I stacked the images in rainbow order....be still my rainbow loving heart!!! I used Avery Elle pigment inks...they are so beautiful!! I also used my MISTI to help with the placement and to ensure I got a good stamp each time. 

 
I know just who I am going to send this one too...and I hope it makes her smile too!!!
 
Take care and see you for the TAWS  blog hop real soon!!!

Hogs and Kisses!

Hey there friends!! Good morning! I hope you are doing well!! I am happy to be popping in today!! We've been in a bit of a whirlwind the past month...my husband accepted a new job and we are relocating our family!! It's been a super fast move, today our house is being packed and by the weekend we'll be on our way down to the Portland, OR area!! It's been a whirlwind...we will all miss the many people we've come to love like our family...oh, my heart!!! BUT, we are thrilled and SO excited about our new adventure. My husband accepted a position with one of the three companies he has always wanted to work for!!! So, all is good. All is crazy.
 
Ok, onto the reason you stopped by today! I've got a question, HAVE you ordered your 
Penguins on Parade yet!!?? I seriously can't tell you how many hours these Penguins have been busy at my house!!! My girls will NOT leave them to rest!! They've been really busy making as many different combinations as they can...oh, the fun!!!
 
I pulled the sentiment from Oinkers... I figured the muddy pig....had to do it!!!

 
Have a good one dear ones!! Thanks a bundle for stopping by!!!

Just a note...


Good morning!!! Happy Saturday again!!
I'm excited to be stopping in with another new Retro Sketch! The summer is skirting by...just days remaining until we "get" back to usual!;)
 
Here is the new Retro Sketch for the week!!

 
I decided to grab these beautiful blooms from Julie's Essentials by Ellen line. I used a bit of gold foil on the blooms...oh, be still my heart!!!  I used some gold foiled cardstock at the top and bottom of the card. I have to stay again...I LOVE the beautiful fonts of this stamp set...don't you love it!?
 

I hope you have a great weekend and I can't wait to see what you do with this sketch!!
Have a great weekend and see you over at Retro Sketches!!



I miss your face


Good morning and happy weekend!!! Are you some of those that have started school already!!? We have a couple more crazy weeks and then we'll be back to the school bit. My kids have a lot of mixed emotions about school this year!!
 
So, I needed a card to send to one of the menfolk in my life and that is sometimes a struggle for me!! So, I pulled out Penguins on Parade and the fun Everyday's a Holiday set that added some fun detail to this handsome little fella.
I think he will be just perfect to send a little happy mail!!!
 
I can't tell you how much fun these penguins are....oh my word!!! Have you ordered yours yet!?
 
Take care and see you soon!!

What's Moo??

Hello!!What's Moo?
 
I got such a kick out of that sentiment!! I have this ready to hit the mailbox...and the recipient is going to get a good giggle. I have to say, I've been really trying hard to get more and more of my love notes in the mail. Knowing that I sent my dear friends and family happy mail makes me happy!! It is why I started getting into making cards to begin with....many moons ago!! I have just had a renewed determination to get more cards in the mail and it has been feeling so great!!!
 
So, for this card, I only used the Penguins on Parade! You know there really are loads of things you can decorate your little 'penguin' with!! My girls were playing with the stamps and had created 32 different variations!!! They had a ball, and I know we will keep having all the fun with these
great stamps!!
 

 
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Take care and I'll see you soon!!

Thank You!!

 
Good morning!! Happy Saturday once again!!!
 
I'm back with the new sketch for this weeks, Retro Sketch!!
Here is the new sketch for the week:
And her is my card!
You know that day you're just walking through Target--minus any children to distract you;) and you see that there are new Heidi Swapp products!!! You all know now that I love her dearly....sweet in person and her products always make my heart happy!!! So, I grabbed this fun new pack of paper and got my "making pretty stuff" on!!  I love the detail in the paper, the gold foiling is so pretty!!
 

I paired the paper up with a bit of gold confetti...because really, who doesn't love confetti!!? I made a quick window/frame and this cute shaker was born!!! The Thank you sentiment stamp is from Impress...picked it up the day I hung out with Amy and Julie!!
 
I hope you'll play along with us at Retro Sketches this week!!! It's always so fun to see how everyone takes the same sketch and makes such awesome projects!!!
 
Take care, enjoy these late summer days!!! See you soon!!
