Thank you kindly

I thought I would play along with Simon Says Stamps Wednesday challenge anything goes.

It is never too early to start dreaming of wheelbarrows full of flowers right?!

I filled this Memory Box wheelbarrow with some WPlus9 flowers. Love it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

On this rainy old spring day I thought I would play along with PTI's April Blog Hop. Here is the pretty inspiration pattern...

I wanted to try out a new kit I recently bought, Color Pop Autumn, and even though it isn't spring themed, I really thought it went well with this inspiration pattern. I pulled out inks I thought would match: Soft Stone, Bright Buttercup, Orange Zest, and Pink Blush and played around with the stencils in this kit. I love how the images really pop on Fresh Snow Linen.

I added a die cut sentiment in Orange Zest and matted the linen base on Soft Stone. I love how it turned out! I think my dad will too. He always loves my cards.

Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see all the pretty things along the hop.

Thank You

It is a rainy old day today. April showers and all that. Seemed like a good idea to play along with Simon Says Wednesday challenge, Showers and Flowers.

I inked up a new set to make this pretty bouquet thank you card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Darling

It is such a lovely spring day today so I thought I would play along with Simon Says Wednesday Spring Color Inspiration.

Here is the inspiration board...

I was inspired by the florals and the colour scheme. I created this little round tag...

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Easter!

Celebrate Today

I thought I would "Play Along" during PTI's April release. 

I have been loving all the products so far. I was excited to see a new stencil kit, Lovely Lace. Keeway's use of it was so inspiring! 

It reminded me of Color Pop Florals. So I played around with that past kit and here's what I came up with...

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Easter!

I decided to play along with Simon's Wednesday challenge this week...use more than one die. I usually keep my cards pretty CAS but I do like to use dies.

I made this card for a friend who recently rebranded her business with a pineapple logo. I figured Hero Art's pineapple set would be great! I love how nicely the layers worked on the pineapple. I heat embossed the final layers for some sparkle! I used several dies: for the pineapple, scribbled circle, stitched square and the word sentiment. 

I just love how it turned out! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Crazy Card Party-- Pocket Page

This week at Crazy Card Party, I am up and I want to see pocket pages! I have been trying to incorporate pocket pages into my scrapbooking albums lately. I find them very challenging! I think I just need more practice.

Here is one I did recently featuring one of the pretty castles we visited in Sweden in 2013.


Pretty basic, but I like the balance and coordinating colours. And acetate photo overlays are so much fun.

I can't wait to see what pocket pages the other Party-Ers post this week for inspiration!
