Happy Wednesday. It's hump day and are officially on our way to the weekend! I have a card for you today - clean and simple - using Merry Moose from the new Stampin' Up catalog. Except, it doesn't feature the moose - just the tree stamp. I was inspired to make this card for the As You See It challenge - and it's a speed stamping challenge! I made this card from start to finish in 9 minutes... a record for me. I used the tree from the Merry Moose set and stamped it with a darker green in the... Read more →

Happy Tuesday! I have a quick post for you today featuring Katzelkraft's Les Jungles. I've had this set for quite a few years and I always enjoy inking it up.

Happy Sunday - again :-) I was in a clean and simple frame of mind in my craft cave yesterday.

Happy Sunday! It's the fabulous Anne Marie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and it's sketch week! When I saw Anne Marie's hand drawn version of the layout on our private PP blog, there was a big smiley face next to it. I laughed out loud, because I swear that smiley face was meant for me. These days layers and layers are just not in my wheelhouse and REALLY take me out of my comfort zone. So, I decided that I would pull up my big girl panties and stop whining and embrace the layers. And,... Read more →

Happy Saturday! Where has this week gone? I had a couple of cards to share this week, but the time completely got away with me. However, I did spend some quality time in my craft cave today and am feeling rested and relaxed and somewhat recovered from what has been a very long week. I made this card for one of my besties. She is so excited as Starbucks has finally opened in her home town and they can now go back to Saturday morning coffee breaks! I used the sketch across at Freshly Made and items from the inspiration... Read more →
