Bright and cheery!

Hi!!  Thanks for stopping by!  I have a card to share with you today.  This is one that we stamped at my Friday Night Stamp Club and my Tuesday Morning Class this month.  Love how bright and cheery it is!

Inspired by Chiaki Haverstick.  You can see her card HERE!

Colors are Whisper White, Tangerine Tango and Old Olive.  DSP is Summer Smooches.  Sentiment is from Petite Pairs (if you don't have this set, what are you waiting for???  Love it!!).  The rhinestone on the flower adds the perfect little touch!

My parents have been such a huge help to me and my husband this summer!  They have been helping me with RJ while I work during the week.  I only work 3 days a week, but they have been picking him up from Summer Camps in the afternoon.  I wanted to treat them somewhere special, so I took them to the charming little town of Kimmswick, MO.  One of my favorite little stores is The Christmas Haus!  And right now, they are having their Christmas in July Sale!!  Score!!  After we did a little shopping, I treated them to lunch at The Dough Depot.  It was so good!!  We really enjoyed it!!  For dessert, I had one of their mini funnel cakes!!  Only $1.50!!  Again, score!!!  If you get a chance to visit Kimmswick, be sure to stop by!  Thanks Mom & Dad for helping us out this summer!!  We greatly appreciate your time and generosity!!  You are both the best!!

Have a great weekend!

Soft and pretty flowers

Hi!! Who knew watercoloring on Kraft paper (I know...Crumb Cake!) would be so pretty??

This is one of the cards that we stamped at my Friday Night Stamp Club this month.  I saw some similar cards on Stampin' Connection (on-line community for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators) which really caught my eye!  I love how soft and pretty it turned out!

I stamped the image from Bordering on Romance with Versamark, then heat-embossed with white embossing powder.  I then took my Aquapainter and reinkers and watercolored the image.  I first used the Whisper White reinker to soften everything inside the image.  Then I went back and added some Rose Red and Old Olive.  Give it a try!

Hope your day is going well!

Wish Big with pinwheel!

Simple and clean!

Hi!!  Here is a card that I created because I saw a very pretty card on Pinterest that I wanted to recreate Stampin' Up! style!

Stamp set is Just Believe.  Image is stamped in Kiwi Kiss and the sentiment is stamped in Basic Grey.  The texture on the front Whisper White cardstock was created using a Texturz Plate.  The cardstock is then popped up on Dimensionals.

Have a great day!

A just because card

Hi!!  Hope you all enjoyed your holiday yesterday!!  We saw some fireworks the night before the 4th that were spectacular!!  What a show!  And yesterday we stayed home and cleaned our screened-in porch and worked a bit outside!  My husband made a great mister "car wash" out of PVC pipe for RJ to run through.  It turned out great!  RJ loves it and he sure gets soaked!!  Thank you Pinterest for the great idea!!

Here is a card that I created just because!  No reason for this card.  Just playing around in my stamp room.  Although this might be a good card for my Friday Night Stamp Club swap!  :)

Have a great day!!  Stay cool!

A Cheery Get Well!

Hi!  I saw a cute card on Pinterest with a great layout!  So I created my Stampin' Up! version here.  Isn't it a cheery card?  And I love the font for this sentiment, which is from the Delightful Dozen stamp set.

Colors are Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, & Tempting Turquoise.  DSP is  Pawsitively Prints II , which is retired.  The flower is from the Blossoms Party Originals Die and the sentiment is stamped on Whisper White cardstock that was cut from the Apothecary Accents Framelits.

Have a great day!  Stay cool!
