My first card in two weeks!
I’ve been working in my room a lot organizing stamps and pulling stuff out for Fall/Halloween use next month. I was supposed to craft on my days off last week and got sidetracked by several things. Yesterday I ended up purging part of my scrap closet which resulted in piles all over the room and other parts of the house. I am hoping to get my room in order by the end of the week so I can craft a bit easier.
Tonight I made this card for my mom and stepdad’s 27th wedding anniversary. Since they live up the street, I got to make it a bit lumpy because I was hand delivering it 🙂 I used the current color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary. Calypso Coral is one of my favorite SU colors so I had to do this challenge!
I got to use new stamps and paper on this card! In my last order I got the Number of Years stamp set and dies, and A Little Foxy dsp. The colors of the challenge are in this paper pad and the heart paper was perfect to use on my card! I also got the new Layering Circle framelits, really love these! I can see me using them a lot.
I am really happy with how this card turned out, despite not giving myself much time to get it done lol!
Have a great night!

Tonight I made a card for the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge while watching the Olympics. I used lots of new SU products that I got a few weeks ago.
I stamped one of the birds from Best Birds in Island Indigo on Whisper White cardstock. I mounted the bird on a Whisper White circle stamped with another image from the set in Sahara Sand. The pretty papers are from the new Blooms & Bliss dsp and I added some new Blushing Bride stitched satin ribbon. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set and I added a few Sahara Sand candy dots. The only non-SU product I used is my beloved MFT Stitched Circle Stax dies.
Here is the sketch~
Have a good night!

I made this card on Friday and mailed it out to a friend to say hello today. I used the sketch and tic tac toe challenge at the Share Joy Challenge.
I used one of my favorite summer sets from Taylored Expressions, A Day in Paradise, for the main image and sentiment. The splatters were created using a stamp from SU Gorgeous Grunge and Marina Mist ink stamped off once.
I chose the first line for the tic tac toe portion of the challenge – wood veneer, stitching and ink splatter.
I just love how this card turned out!
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy August!! I’m a week late in saying that lol…I have created a little but haven’t been blogging anything. Not sure why…is blogging losing its appeal or am I just too busy? I use my mobile devices so much more and find it hard to make time for the computer (which is so much easier when adding graphics/links and such for challenges!)
Anyways, I have about 15 minutes left to get my card entered for the sketch #459 at Mojo Monday! I used my new MFT BB Beary Special Birthday stamp set. The bears in the set are so cute!! I paired my bear with It’s My Party paper from Stampin’ Up!
Here is the sketch~
That’s all for tonight!
