Bundle of Joy


Isn't he a cutie???? I thought this Verve baby elephant stamp called Emery 
would be perfect for this week's



 I know, I know...the twine bow may not be exactly what they had in mind!!!
But I couldn't figure out where to put any ribbon!!
 I also used the sketch from this weeks



I colored my elephant with Copic Markers using the technique called Pointillism featured on the MFT Academy. Michele colors the cutest little image. And I just had to try it! 


I will definitely try this technique again!

Happy Birthday


Hello! Hope everyone is doing well! 
I made this pretty card for a friend at work, who has the best taste in clothes, home decor...you name it! And when I saw Nichol Magouirk's video featuring a card with this month's Simon Says Card kit, I knew it would be perfect for my friend! So I cased it!!!!


The beautiful flower was made using the stamp in the card kit. It was stamped 3 times with Versamark  ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then layered together with foam tape.


The little wooden hearts (also from the kit) were adhered with Glossy Accents. Aren't they precious?? I must order some more for future projects!

She loved it! Yea!!!!

Shoot for the Stars!


 I made this card using this week's Retrosketch #49!


And the colors for this week's Play Date Cafe Color Challenge!


I needed another "guy" card!!!!
For a Winter High School graduation. You know how teen boys are!
So I thought this was the perfect opportunity to use a CAS sketch!

Wanna Hang Out?

I have 2 kittens. Their names are Orange & Beige! Yes, I know these are weird names, but this is how we identified them when we first discovered them in our back yard this summer! They were so cute and not afraid of us like their mama. So we just had to adopt them! We already have one cat-Sam and our precious doggie -Lucy. So as you can imagine...Sam & Lucy are not happy campers! 
Of course, Beige and Orange seem to always be asking them:

Wanna hang out???




And their answer is.... NOOOOOO!!!!!!!

I just had to get this Simon Says stamp set when I saw it!
And I felt it would work perfectly with this awesome sketch 
by Karolyn Loncon at Cas(E) this Sketch!


Maybe one day we will be one big happy family!
