Happy to be Friends

a new stamp i got recently after seeing it used so beautifully all over the blogosphere lately! (my favorite was a card I saw Kimberly Weiner had made....I can't remember what card it was, she has so many beautiful ones! but i HAD to get this stamp set!!!) 

I made this card for a few challenges:
1.  CASology week 141 NEWS  the flowers are wrapped in newspaper!
2.  Casual Friday #138:  Krafty bouquets  
3.  Freshly made sketches #181
4.  AAA cards, game 37, it's springtime!

i apologize for not having the graphics for the challenges. i had to take my contacts out they were really dry and hurting, and i have an eye condition that prevents me from being able to wear glasses...without my contacts im pretty blind!  im typing this as quick as i can and hoping it looks ok!

Thanks for visiting my blog despite my abreviated post! and thanks kimberly for inspiring me to buy that stamp set!

MUSE #112

This is my take on MUSE #112, by Vicki Dutcher....

I didn't use a bird....I used the color scheme, and overall layout of the card. I also made this card for my loving fiance for his birthday earlier this week!!!

thats all i got for this card.....a few more cards in another post! thanks for visiting my blog!

MUSE #111

I make cards for the MUSE challenge almost every week,  I just usually forget to post them! One day I will have time and post them!!!  This time, I'm getting it in! Here is the inspiration by Kristie Goulet:

I used the colors as my inspiration.  I inked a background piece with the blue orange and red, stamped my bird and then cut him out!  It is hard to see my colors are the same, Im not good at photo-ing my cards!!!

This is my last post for tonight....kid free house, want to lay down, snuggle with my fiance and catch up on Game of Thrones....I'm on season 2!

Thanks for visiting my blog!


Another new stampset I can have fun watercolor stamping with!!!  I had a few challenges in mind when I did this one...which is all stamped using distress inks, water spritz and watercolor paper.

1.  Time Out Challenges # 28,  CASE with a twist!  This is the card we were CASE-ing:

a beautiful card by Kim! I chose to use a whte background, and put my flowers in a different corner. 

2.  AAA cards, Game 36: Easter colors
I only used light blue and orange....but I still see them as easter colors!!!

Happy Easter to everyone by the way....hope everyone had a great holiday!
thanks for visiting my blog!    2 more posts to hopefully get done before bed tonight!

Watercolor Thank You Card

I have I think 4 cards to share from this weekend/week! I'm going to make separate posts...I think that makes it easier for the design teams I'm entering them in to be able to figure out what card goes where!
I got a giant order of Close to my heart and Stampin Up stuff the other day, and I just LOVE this flower!!!!!  I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

1.  CASology Week 140, Spring

2.  Fusion: Cupcake Inspiration

I used the sketch and the yellow from the cupcake!

That's it for this card.....but I have a few more posts to make! Thanks for visiting my blog!
