ABC Series 2017: A is for…#1

A is for…Alligator!


Last year I came up with an ABC series for the blog…I missed the entire first half of the year but hoping to keep up with it for the second half!


Yesterday morning I created this card using an image from the cute Newton’s Nook Beach Pals set. I used MFT Blueprints 14 to create the layout for the card. I had so much fun creating this scene.



Have a great day!

A Birthday Brew 

Here is my second cat card using Newton Loves Coffee!

This is for my stepdad’s birthday which is today. Happy Birthday, Pat! (He reads here and has gotten his card by now :))
I started with the new sketch at Mojo Monday and incorporated the Kraft + Sparkle Challenge at Inky Paws (Newton’s Nook) after seeing my friend Lynn’s card. 

The sparkle element is some Copper Sparkle paper from MFT that I just got in the mail over the weekend. I thought it worked well for a masculine card. The mugs were fun to paper piece. I was surprised that I could stamp on the sparkle paper. I stamped a few of the coffee beans from the set as well as the birthday sentiment.

Here is the sketch~

And the Inky Paws challenge~

Good afternoon and Happy December!

I made this card last night for a coffee swap using Newton Loves Coffee from Newton’s Nook and the new sketch at Sweet Sunday Sketch.


I used a newer paper pad from Basic Grey called Barista and colored Newton with copics. When deciding on the cup color, I went with red after all the controversy a few weeks ago over the Starbucks cups lol. I think it’s a nice pop of color with the mostly neutral color palette. For embellishment, I added a border die cut and a few sequins. 

Here is the sketch~

I will be back later with another cat card and I am hoping to start a few other series tonight, one being the 25 Days of Christmas! We’ll see how much I can get done though.

Christmas in July – Day 17



Good morning!


This is the 2nd card I finished yesterday. Had to wait for it to dry so I can share it!


I used the Dots & Stripes challenge at Christmas Cards All Year Round to start my card and I chose a stamp from Newton’s Holiday Mischief by Newton’s Nook.


2015 Card 73 - Newton's Nook Holiday Mischief


All the layers were cut from MFT Blueprints #1 and Newton was colored with copics. I added Candy Cane stickles to the bow and all the berries.  Simple but cute and flat for mailing!


Here is a sneak peek of Day 18’s card, it got too late to finish it last night.
