Happy Mother's Day

Are you all ready for the holidays?! I'm getting there...a bit more shopping to do and packing!

I was able to get together with other DC-area (and beyond!) Papertrey Ink fans for fun and crafting at Cheryl's house. It was a blast!

Lovely Miss Jenn shared her new release goodies with us and I made this card!


The card was made with Rosie Posiea and Happy Day, love these sets!

Below is the gorgeous bag that Jenn made to house her white elephant gift. I was the lucky reciepent--isn't that stamping amazing!! I had to share, it's just so pretty!


Thanks for coming by!

Card Caravan Challenge #8

It's my turn to host the next Card Caravan Challenge . Since today is both my mom and my brother's birthday, I decided on the theme "two".


For my "two" project, I made two similar cards. They use gorgeous digital paper from Sugarplum Paperie's Comfort and Joy .


I cut the papers, inked the edges and stitched them together in blocks. I couldn't bring myself to cover any of the front, so the sentiments are added on the inside.


The ribbon is from Paper Source. I hope that you'll take a look at our Challenge , and play along!

Merry Merry Merry

Hope you're having a great weekend!

After die cutting all my card fronts from this post , I had a bunch of words cut out. So this card was born.


Super simple and easy. I popped up the words with foam tape, tied a little twine bow and added some Pure Poppy buttons.

Thanks for taking a look!

'Tis the Season

Another Christmas card!

This one uses Bells and Boughs from PTI for the focal image and sentiment. I created the embossed background by stamping an image from Waltzingmouse Stamp's Faux Fun and heat embossed it with gold glittery powder.


Have a great day!
