Happy Birthday

Have you seen the new Monday Mood Board hosted by Dawn at Wplus9 ? Here is this week's gorgeous photo:

I really love these colors together! Navy and coral are beautiful together. Here's what I made, and it reminds me of my Mom's Willow Pattern china.

I used two images from Wplus 9's Chantilly Trim to stamp the background using A Muse studio's Navy ink. The tag was stamped with Embroidered Bouquet (also Wplus9).

Thanks for stopping by!

Wonderful Friend

I had so much fun making this card! I used Wplus9's Chantilly Trim and heat embossed the lace image. I then stamped and cut out the floral images, and stamped the sentiment onto the Winter Wisteria layer before impressing it with the coverplate.

This card is off to a super sweet friend!

Thanks for taking a look!

thank you Friend

Happy Monday!

Yesterday I had a marathon card-making was so nice! I made a card to play along with the new RetroSketch.

I used Wplus9's Embroidered Blooms and heat embossed the image onto Royal Velvet cardstock. The sentiment comes from the same set.

Souhaits Sinceres

I had some time to make a card for this month's Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party! The theme this month is doilies, so I dug one out and got crafting!

I stamped the rooster and sentiment from WMS's French Country and the paper is from My Mind's Eye.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sending you

Hope you're having a great weekend!

I pulled out an oldie but goodie stamp set, Big and Bold Wishes, to pair with some pretty digital papers by Wishing Well Creations called Aflutter.
Our latest challenge at The Hybrid Chick is a card of cheer. Maybe you can play along!

Thanks for taking a look!

With Sympathy

A simple sympathy card today.

I was inspired by Maile's first card in this post . I used Beautiful Butterflies and the sentiment is from Birds of a Feather. For the inside, I used a line from Healing Touch.

Thanks for checking back in with me...I wish I had more time for stamping, but I hope that I'll get back in a groove soon!

Live, Laugh, Love

I'm playing along with the latest Cloud 9 inspiration challenge. Here is this month's photo:

For my card I stamped the background with Chantilly trim. I die cut some of PTI's Tiny Tags and stamped some hearts and sayings. Latestly, I added enamel dots to each tag.

With All My Heart

So when I shared my card yesterday, I had also made this card at the same time. You'll notice that I used the same papers....and that this card has two smaller hearts cut out of the bigger. It was not on purpose, I decided to use smaller hearts so I die cut again, but I die cut them perfectly centered and just knew I had to use these on a card!

The sentiment is from PTI's With All My Heart and I added a bunch of enamel dots. The paper is Fourteen by Crate Paper.

Hope you have a great week!

Happy Valentine's Day

Crafting time is scarce! But I was able to make a few cards today. This one is for the newest RetroSketch

I used some patterned papers from Crate Paper's Fourteen. The sentiment comes from Happy Day (PTI) and the Impression Plate is also PTI.
