It’s time for the weekly Wednesday blog hop with Focused on the Magic! Check out all the entries HERE!




I couldn’t decide on one attraction to share, so I selected an attraction from each park that makes me happy.

Hi There with All Abloom



Tonight I made a card for the sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary. I used the A Happy Hooray stamp set and All Abloom dsp. I added some Gorgeous Grunge splatters to the card base because I couldn’t bear to leave it blank lol.


2014 Card 117 - SU A Happy Hooray


First I added the Hi There to the card and it looked lost, so I grounded it with a Fun Flower punched from Pistachio Pudding cardstock.


Here is the sketch~

Freshly Made, Color Throwdown Mashup

Here it is, the last card from yesterday.  This one is for two challenges,  the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and the Color Throwdown challenge.


This color combination is so rich and pretty, but I didn’t want to overwhelm the card so I used each one sparingly. I saved the darkest color for the focal point, the Beautiful Bunch flower. I like white space but I don’t like it to be plain lol,  so I embossed the panel with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder.


Here is the sketch ~



and the color challenge~

Good morning!!


Here is another card from my card making frenzy yesterday.  This one is for the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.


2014 Card 114 - SU Occasions 4 you


As evidenced from yesterday’s cards, I still can’t get enough of this Park Lane dsp! I think I may need another pack of it lol. The sentiment is from Occasions 4 You. I added a flower from Petite Petals and a few candy dots to finish off the card.


Here is the sketch~



I’ll be back around noon with my last card from yesterday.
