Being Creative :)

Hi!! I am working on using as much of my 'older' stuff as I can possibly use. I still LOVE this stuff (which is why I bought it to begin with :) but for some reason, I have a tendency to save stuff for the PERFECT time to use it........ does that ever come? So, I'm trying to use my stuff because it's pretty and I like it!

So today I used K&Co's Berry Sweet line :) The first two cards are for SplitcoastStampers Sketch Challenge. I think I like this first one with the larger flower best. Which one do you like best?

These cards are based on a card by Amy Rysavy. I LOVE the angled panel. These cards add Doodlebug Paper Frills to the mix of materials.

Our quote for the day: "Don't define your world in black and white because there is so much hiding amongst the greys. "

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Card Pattern Sketch and Inspiration

Hi - Well the best I can say is that is hasn't been a whole year since I posted.......
My friend Teresa has been inspiring me so much with the cards she's been making using challenges. She used the Card Patterns sketch for today, so I went over there and checked it out.

These are the two cards I made with the sketch. I have so much stuff!! I know you know what I mean. So I've been trying to use what I have instead of going to buy the newest, latest stuff. I don't have room for it!!

Most of the things I've used here are from KI Memories.

Birthday and Operation Write Home

Today is my son's 19th birthday....I just can't believe it was that long ago that I held him in my arms for the first time! He amazes me on a daily basis and I love love love having him home from school for a while. I forgot to take a picture of his card before I sealed it, but I have others to show you.....

This one I cased from Sandy on the Operation Write Home blog. If you haven't been to the OWH site before, you should go. It's all about making cards to be sent to our heroes who are away from home. They use these cards to send back to their families and friends. Go check it out!

I finally posted!

Hi! It's been a really long time since I have posted...and a ton of things have happened....but I won't go into all that. I have been making some cards, but haven't been posting them. I really miss it though, so I'm going to try to get back into posting more regularly :)

First thing I have to share are two cards I made based on SCS Sketch Challenge. I haven't been using my die cuts very often, so my additional challenge to myself was to use die cuts. I couldn't decide which one to use, so I just made 2 cards and used them both :)

Paper: Crate Paper -Little Sprout Collection, kraft cardstock

Other: dew drops, Quickutz owl dies
