another Pinterest inspiration!

Hi!!  Here is a simple and pretty card!  I saw a card on Pinterest (of course), and thought it was so pretty.  I did change the colors to Wisteria Wonder because I knew the ruffled ribbon that I had on hand would work well with this card.  Check out the card that inspired me HERE.

Colors are Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz, and Whisper White.  Sentiment is from Petite Pairs.

Have a great day!

Simple cards in Crumb Cake

Hi!!  Happy Memorial Day!!  I have 2 very simple cards for you today.  Of course, the inspiration for these cards came from a card that I saw on Pinterest!!  Deb Currier created the card that inspired me.  I visit her blog frequently, so I was not surprised that her card caught my eye!  I changed my card up a bit.  I have 2 versions of this card...

We created these cards at my classes in March and April (I think!!).  Let me know if you have any questions.

You Send Me Soaring!

Hi!!  Here is a card that I created for my April classes.  The stamp set is called Send Me Soaring, and it was a stamp set in the Ocassions Mini Catalog.  It is no longer available, but I hope you will be inspired by the layout, colors or any element of the card.  I actually saw a card that had hot air balloons instead of kites, which inspired me to create this card.  There is so much inspiration out there!!

Hope you are enjoying your Holiday weekend!!

A Small Gesture of Appreciation!

Happy Friday to you!!!  I received my stamp club order on Thursday this week and look what I found inside!!!    A little stamped image saying "thinking of you"!  And on the back was a hand-written note from Dennis at Stampin' Up! thanking me for my order!  Isn't that neat?  Nice little touch to show how much they appreciate their Demonstrators!

Hope you have some great fun-in-the-sun plans this weekend for Memorial Day!!  We are cleaning out the garage!  Sounds like fun, huh??  Ugh!!!  I guess we will feel good about it AFTER it's done!  On Sunday, we are going to be with family and friends for some good food and company!  Looking forward to that!

Have a great weekend!

Bright and cheery!

Hi!!  Here is another card that Jen Sannes inspired me to create!!  The things that I changed from her card include the rhinestones and the Tangerine Tango cardstock for the card.

So cheery, don't you think??

Colors are Tangerine Tango, Pacific Blue, Wild Wasabi, and Whisper White.  Sentiment is from Happiest Birthday Wishes, and stamped with Jet Black Staz-On.  The larger circles are punched from the 1-3/4 Circle Punch, and the smaller circle is a die-cut from the Circles #2 Die.  Questions?? Let me know!

Today is our first day of summer break!!  My little Kindergartener is no longer in Kindergarten!!  He is a big first grader now!!  Where did this year go???  I really try to cherish every moment, but it would be so nice for it to slow down a bit!!  :)

Take care!!

another sweet card!

Hi!!  I came across a very cute card on Pinterest, and it was created by Jen Sannes.  I visit her blog quite frequently.  I am very attracted to her style of card-making.  I think that's why her card caught my eye.  So I recreated it for my swap at my monthly stamp club gathering, and for my Tuesday morning stamp club this month.  I didn't have the DSP that Jen used, so I had to be a little (just a little) creative!!  :)

Stamp set is Bright Blossoms, which will be in the new catalog.  Sentiment is from a retired stamp set.  Colors are Whisper White, Melon Mambo, and Old Olive.  Oh, and the DSP is from the retired Melon Mambo Patterns Pack.

Have a great day!!!  It's going to be a gorgeous day here in St. Louis!!  Enjoy!

Sweet Card - Just for You!

Hi!!  Here is a sweet card that we stamped at my monthly Tuesday morning stampin' class last month.  Such a cute card!!  Thanks to Heather Summers for this idea!!!  I pretty well copied everything from her card, even the placement of the little flowers. Heather had a white oval behind the butterfly on her card, but I actually forgot to add it.  I changed the sentiment too!

Enjoy your day!!

Simple Sympathy

HELLO!!!  How is everyone??  I've been gone for awhile from blogging, but not from stamping.  So I have many projects to share with you from the last 2 months or so.  But first, I wanted to share a couple of new cards that I just created last night.  I found a really nice card on Pinterest that I pinned.  I didn't have the supplies that they used, so I went with what I had on hand.  Love how they turned out!  They are much prettier in person.

I used Whisper White & Basic Gray Cardstock for these cards.  The stamp set is Just Believe.  And the sentiment for the first card is retired, but isn't it beautiful?

I used Stampin' Up's Notecards for this next card.  Love the size of these.  This sentiment is from Petite Pairs.  LOVE this set!  If you don't have it, please consider adding it to your stamp sets!!  It's a must-have in my opinion!!

Hope you are all doing well!!  And thanks so much for stopping by today to visit.  I know it's frustrating when I stop posting, so I appreciate that you didn't give up on me!!

Have a great weekend!!  It's a busy one for us!!  RJ has tennis lessons, a soccer clinic and 2 baseball games all in one day!!  Fun!!!   I love it!!  And Saturday is going to be a great day to soak up some Vitamin D!!
