My Favorite Things SC217 - Dear Friend
This week between being snowed in, and having under the weather munchkins (lots of napping) I was able to get some "extra" craft time in so I decided to play with MFT Sketch #217 again! To create this colorful card I used LJD Spring Tulips with matching Die-namics.  The banners were created using the Stitched Fishtail Flag Stax and the Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle Die-namics.
If you haven't yet, I hope you will play with us this week at the MFT Sketch Challenge! Have a great weekend!

For Every Momement - MFT Sketch #216 Bonus Card


Hello friends! I am so excited today because tomorrow I am going to the Scrapbook Expo in Grapevine Tx and spending the day with my fellow MFT Challenge design team-mate, and very good friend Erin Lee Schreiner! Yay! Before I leave in the morning I wanted to share a bonus card I created using this weeks MFT Sketch:
To create my card I used the fun, and trendy Die-Namics Headphones and the coordinating Keep On Rockin' stamp set.  I used the equalizer stamp, and two colors of ink(Cherry Crisp, and Limelight) to create my
multi-color background.
I am so happy you stopped by, and I hope you play along with us this week at the MFT Sketch Challenge

Your Special Day - Stretching My Creative Wings!

I am all caught up this week on DT cards so I had a little time for fun this morning! I am playing along with the current CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge!
   This card was a labor of love for sure! My window was created by die-cutting a window die 3 times, and punching all of the inner squares out. I glued them together three at a time to create a chipboard effect. Next, using the window as my guide I glued the squares to my card base and took off the window leaving only the squares. I LOVE the way this turned out, and it can be used with so many other dies! The floral stamps are from the WPlus9 "Pretty Peonies" set and a sentiment from a PTI set. I am so pleased with the way this card turned out! Thank YOU for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Curtain Call Challenge - Donut Forget I Love You!

Happy Monday friends! I had a little fun, ok, a LOT of fun creating this card for this weeks Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.

  I just received the MFT Feb. release "Donuts and Sprinkles" with matching dies and couldn't wait to play with them! Oh my gosh they are sooo cute! I also used the new Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Flags, and an element from the new Blueprints 22. I cut out my donut twice, and stacked the pieces to add a bit of extra dimension. I love those donuts!!  I am happy you stopped by, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day! On this day of love, flowers and chocolate, I wanted to share a card I have been working on for a few weeks. Stamping a little here and there, fussy cutting when I had a chance. I finally put it all together yesterday! This card features the beautiful floral set from Altenew "Vintage Roses". This set is so beautiful. I framed my floral centerpiece using the brand new MFT Inside and Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle Stax. To create a little more dimension to my frame I lined the inner frame with vellum. I LOVE the soft look it creates. If you look closely you will see the inner diagonal embossing on the white card stock. I finished off the card with "love you" from the MFT Love and Adore You Die-namics and Black Licorice card stock.
I hope you are being spoiled today and that you will take the time to say "I Love You" to someone special. XOX
