My image and sentiment  is from the itty bitty set  " Day full of happiness "
I used PTI winter wisteria ink
I used copic markers my EK success scallop  and circle punch Martha Stewart edge trimmer and I fussy cut the wheel barrel out.

Hi Friends,

Is it wrong of me to be happy on Tuesday, if I was happy on Monday?

I hope your day is off to a good start.  I'm back to my usual busy on Tuesday routine.  So I will be visiting you all a bit later. I have another fun water color background card for you.  I used another color from my palette that I like, it is called vermilion (Windsor Newton), when you use it full color it is a vibrant orange. I diluted it quite a bit here and it has a very soft coral hue. I heat embossed Don't worry be happy with Creative Inspirations platinum deliquesce embossing powder.

For my flower I used Jenni Bowlin chewing gum, PTI classic Kraft , and winter wisteria and then die cut it with the coordinating die from the "Happiness in Bloom" set. For the leaves I used Jenni Bowlin stick candy and PTI ripe avocado for the centers, I fussy cut the leaves and the adhered them to the back of the flower and then pop dotted it onto the stampers select card stock. I then, rounded the corners and added it to the PTI classic  kraft card stock base.

When I think don't worry be happy I think of spring.

Hi Friends,

Mojo Has a new sketch and it comes with a tall and skinny look.

Don't you love it?


I cut my paper 8 x 7 then folded it in half to give it a finished size of 4 x 7 which will fit in an A7 envelope.
I also wanted to make a card that would be happy and have a nice spring look to it.
So here is what I came up with.



I did this from memory I was not looking at the sketch. My friend Kim gave me this kaisercraft "spring bloom paper for Valentines day. I also used Verve sentiment stamp celebration of Thanks I do love this set because there are so many ways to say Thank you.
I like the way it came out I hope you do to.

Hi friends,

BBTB2  has a great challenge going on right now use a die cut as a stencil.  From the moment I bought my machine I have wanted to do this, so I am doing it today. I printed and cut a bunch of birds from Lori's garden  (an Imagine cartridge),  I will be using these for mini cards, but I am using the stencil part as a background for my card. I used viridian green which is my absolute favorite watercolor color . I painted the background on PTI stampers select white card stock, let it dry. The, I embossed with creative inspiration deliquesce platinum , then  tied a vintage cream PTI ribbon underneath the bird stencil and then pop dotted my birdie on top of the ribbon and the stencil to give it the look of a shadow. Then, I adhered it to PTI vintage cream card stock.




 Fantabulous cricut challenge is having a use your favorite color Challenge.  I'm in.




Here are all my little birdies aren't they adorable?

Here you can see where I have painted over the stencil.

I was saving up stencils and I don't know how many I had and I finally just threw them out a couple of weeks ago, only to make one and then use it. I am loving today. I hope this inspires you to go over to BITTEN BY THE BUG 2 and enter a piece.

Hi Friends,


 I have been doing something the last couple of weeks that I haven't done in a while, so I thought I would let you in on it. I wanted to build up my jewelry section in my ETSY store, so I have been going through my supplies and I found quite a stash of beads. Some may be crystal, but I did not mark them so I am going to just consider them glass beads.  I don't know if any of you have been over there lately, but I do have a lot of stuff in there.  I really have been having fun with these What do you think? I have more in my ETSY store.







I have had all these beads for quite some time, I am not even sure what they are. All I know is they are pretty and they are now earrings.

Hi Friends,

 I was so thrilled last week when my friend Kim had a Kaiser craft Paper pack with embellishments and die cuts ("Spring blooms") and said "May I give this to you for Valentines day?"

"Of course" was my reply.  It was so thoughtful of her she was on vacation and thought enough of me to buy me some beautiful paper that just came out for this spring.  It made my day. This paper is so happy and cheerful, it just made me happy looking at it.


I just had to make a Thank you card...


Base 4.25 x 5.5 PTI stampers select
the banner, the pink flower the birds and the arrow are from the stickers that came with it
my black border is cut from  the Cricut Cartridge CTMH  art Philosophy using AC card stock
The Thank you is from Verve celebration of thanks stamp set inked with black onyx versamark ink.






Hope you like my card

Two years ago I dealt with the invasion myself, but this time I called the bug guy!!  I probably should have made a post about an ant, but that wasn't the challenge so I 'm doing a non-traditional colors Birthday card  with stripes



All my solid colors are from PTI  vintage cream, craft and Harvest gold with dark chocolate ink and the DP is Carta Bella "Devoted"(I am determined to use this paper pad up) I fussy cut the little hearts out. and then stamped and die cut the larger heart out.  All of the stamps I used are from My Creative Time "100% sweetness".

I hope you like my card

Good Morning Friends,
I hope you have a wonderful week!!



I really like the simplicity of this sketch, how about you?  I left all my scraps out last night and in my mind I was thinking the color scheme was with the harvest gold instead of the scarlet jewel color, so without looking at the color scheme I went with the harvest gold. So I made the switch I like it. The today is an old rubber stamp from a card kit I bought years ago, it is "big" and I love it. All my products are PTI except for the big stamp
