This Happy Howl-idays Card was one of my last minute makes for one of our friends. It was supposed to be a fast and easy card, but I underestimated how long it takes me to color an image. Of course I used red and black Copic markers which, in my opinion, are more challenging to use. So, other than coloring this was a simple card. Everything was adhered flat and I mailed it the day I made it. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day however you choose to spend it.

Good day! By this time all my Christmas cards should have arrived at their destinations. I completely depleted my stash and made several last minute cards. Most of my cards are one of a kind, but I loved this Poinsettia Christmas Card so much that I made four of them. The poinsettia was a lot of fun to color and I tried to make it look like an Iced Punch Poinsettia. The papers and stamps are from Stampin' Up! and the images were colored with Copic markers. Everything was adhered flat for easy shipping and that's it. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Now onto this Meowy Christmas Card that I made this afternoon. I'll be sending it to our veterinarians office. The cute kitties and sentiment are from the Christmas Kitties stamp set by Simon Says Stamp and they were colored with Copic markers, then die cut with the coordinating dies. Snowflake paper seemed appropriate today, so I found this paper in the Winter Farmhouse paper pad by Simple Stories and accented it with some plaid by Authentique from the Solitude paper pad. Everything was adhered flat and that's it. Wishing you a warm and wonderful day!

This Cardinal In My Thoughts Card was made for my parents. After my sister passed away I started to take notice of the cardinals in my yard. I have several visit my yard everyday and I truly enjoy their visits. My mom has mentioned the representation of cardinals being a visitor from heaven, so I thought the cardinal was very fitting for this card. It's from the Toile Christmas stamp set by Stampin' Up! and was colored with Copic markers. The sentiment is retired by Stampin' Up! and the patterned paper is from the Winter Farmhouse paper pad by Simple Stories. Well, that's it. Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful December!

The image and sentiment are by Unity Stamps from the My Condolences stamp set. To color the images I used Copic markers. I added a bitty butterfly and that's it. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

This is my second card for the hop and it features my favorite coffee beverage... an iced coffee. I prefer mine without whipped cream, just to save a few calories. To make this card I started with the green brick patterned paper by Bo Bunny (Stay Awhile Collection 2017). Then I stamped the image by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous (Fresh Brewed 2015) and colored it with Copic markers. A scrap piece of paper from the first card I made was used (black coffee cups from the Coffee paper pad by Echo Park 2020). Lastly I found a great sentiment from the Coffee Break stamp set by Jaded Blossom and stamped it onto a piece of scrap woodgrain paper. Everything was adhered flat and that's it. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

When it comes to drinking coffee I love a good cold brew or an iced vanilla coffee. In winter if it's really cold outside I'll drink hot coffee and I like it dark with cream and sugar. ☕☕☕

Happy Halloween! Today I'm taking part in a blog hop called the Poisoned Apple Exhibit. There are 13 creative projects for you to view. The majority are mixed media in nature and many of them are dimensional. We would love for you to hop along and enjoy these spine-tingling creations. The hop list is below along with a photo of the prize donated by Gecko Galz.🍎 Have fun!
My creation is more cute than spine-tingling, it's as spooky as I get. I made this Happy Halloween wall hanging using distress oxide inks for the background adorned with several stamps that were colored with Copic markers and then fussy cut. The black embossed trees are made using a stamp by Whimsy Stamps called Tree Silhouette used with Zing! black glitter embossing powder. To add a little spooky the Tree Menace and Count Catula stamps by Stampendous! were used along with some cute Hello Bluebird stamps from the Frightful Little Bits and Halloween Party stamp sets. Once I had everything assembled I decided I needed to add a little toad from the Springtime stamp set by Hello Bluebird. The Happy Halloween die cut is from Impression Obsession and that's it. 👻🎃 I'm glad you stopped by and I hope you have a hauntingly fun Halloween!🦇

When it comes to making sympathy cards I rarely make them just to keep in my stash. I like making them specifically for the family of the person who passed away. Although doing it this way usually leads to crafting through tears, that's okay with me. For this card I used the retired Watercolor Wings stamp set by Stampin' Up!, a retired flourish die cut and sentiment by Stampin' Up! and the patterned paper is from the Country Lane paper pad by LDRS Creative. The layout is one I've used several times, but I really like it. Everything was adhered flat for easy shipping and that's it. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.

Good day! If you're looking for a quick sketch to make your next card then you should definitely check out this weeks Tuesday Morning Sketch. It's designed by Melissa Craig and it's very versatile. In an effort to finish my Halloween cards I made this BOO Card. I found the die cut BOO when I was cleaning this past weekend and decided it was perfect for this weeks sketch. In place of the bow I added the jack-o-lantern and used some of my older paper stash and that's it. The design team made a variety of inspiration this week using many different occasions. We would love to see your take on the sketch! Click HERE for all the challenge details and design team inspiration. Just remember to link your creation by 8 pm EST on Sunday. Thanks for stopping by! 🎃

Let's Go Nuts stamp set and Tree Before 'n Afters by Lawn Fawn. Aren't these squirrels super cute? I just adore this stamp set! So, today I decided to make this Fall Card with Squirrels. The images were colored with Copic markers and then die cut with the coordinating dies. To make the sky background I used Tumbled Glass distress ink and used the smooshing technique. The grass was cut with a tiny wavy scalloped die by Simon Says Stamp. Once everything was cut out I assembled the scene and adhered it to a piece of patterned paper from the Into The Woods Remix paper pad by Lawn Fawn. Everything was adhered flat for easy shipping and that's it. I'm glad you stopped by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Hooray! Today is the first day of Autumn/Fall here in the US and that makes me very happy. There are a few trees in our neighborhood that are already starting to change color. We usually end up with lots of leaves in our yard but that's okay. I'll just be glad when we no longer have to mow the lawn!!!🍁

To make this card I used the Christmas Like Not Otter stamp set by Lawn Fawn which was the STAMPtember collaboration with Simon Says Stamp from 2017. The images were colored with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. For the water a blue inky background was made with mixed media paper and Distress Oxide inks. The grassy paper is by The Paper Studio and to frame the otters a wavy center was cut out using a Wavy Pierced die by Whimsy Stamps. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.

Once I decided to make a Thanksgiving Card the rest was easy. I already had the image by Newton's Nook colored and die cut. All I had to do was select and cut the papers, stamp a sentiment and adhere it all together. Thanks again for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Good day crafty friends! There is only 12 days until the arrival of fall/autumn here in the United States and that makes me very happy. We were lucky enough to have a cold front push through our area and the temperatures feel like fall. Since this year has been challenging for most, I decided to send simple fall cards to family. These Fall Acorn Hi Cards are easy to make and flat for hassle free shipping. When I make multiples of the same layout I always change the papers. Rarely will I make two identical cards. The acorn is from the retired Acorny Thank You stamp set by Stampin' Up! and it was punched with the coordinating punch. I've been hoarding my fall paper pads for awhile, so the papers are from several different pads and scraps. Well, that's about it. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
