SSS Wed.Challenge


Hi Friends, I finally had a chance to stamp a new to me Avery Elle Stamp set I bought called "Happy Camper". Super Cute! I thought it could qualify for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge called Lets Go Wild. Camping out under the stars in the wilderness is a form of Wild, right?

This week I watched Kristina Werner make a cool sky using Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Seedless Preserves and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks so I gave it a try. It came out cute and matched my pink accents on my camper. I used the tree dies from another Avery Elle set called Snow much fun. 

And these stars! Oh so cute, from Pretty Pink Posh. I see lots of card makers using them this week. 
That's it for now, Is it beastly HOT where you live? It's unbearable here. 
Thanks for visiting.

Case this Sketch 183


Hey Friends, I'm loading up a summer card today that doubles as a birthday card. I'm playing in this week's Case this Sketch 183. As I was trying to design a totally different card with the flip flop stamp from Simon Says Stamp, the CTS sketch popped into my head and I saw flip flops in place of the hearts. I quickly switched gears and made up 2 of these since I needed a couple of quick birthday cards. 

I'll be in a big push now to use my summer stamp sets before time gets away. These were a snap to make with the Simple Stories Snap paper. I stamped the flip flops, cut them out and adhered them to a Lil Inkers stitched rectangle of white card stock. After stamping the sentiment I added small gems and they were done!

 Thanks for stopping by. See you soon!

CAS Shark Card



Hi Friends, I'm playing in the CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge-184 challenge to complete a masculine birthday card. 

I had gotten this adorable Avery Elle "Hello Chum" set recently and need to ink up the cute shark. I love the punny sentiments in the set! I colored my shark with Copics and fussy cut out. 

Following the sketch I simply cut a SSS stitched circle and backed it with a piece of card stock. I then layered some Simple Stories PP on the card base, added thin strips of red cs and added the center panel with foam tape. I will add some sequins or enamel dots later because it's a little plain. 

Anyone who's seen the movie "Jaws" will know this play on words from the famous movie line "we're gonna need a bigger boat!" 

Some other challenges this fits are:
AAA Cards Stitching
The Paper Players  Tic Tac Toe -I used masculine, red & die cut

Color Throwdown and Freshly Made

Hi Friends,
I'm playing in a few challenges today. One is the Color Throwdown 403 and I used the Freshly Made Sketch 247 to put this clean and simple card together. 
I had so much trouble getting this card made. Mr. Mojo made me fuss and throw away all kinds of paper trying to come up with a layout for the adorable Simon Says Stamp Unicorn. I got it free as a birthday gift from SSS. 

I'm rusty since I haven't made a card in two weeks. It's so hot but I have been enjoying summer. 

As you can see I sponged a distress ink background on water color paper and added some glitter paper stars and sequins. The inside sentiment says "filled with rainbows and something". Haha. I'm not home so I can't look it up and Google can't find it. 

Some other challenges:
Cardz4Gals -No Patterned Paper
In the Pink Challenge -Rubber or clear stamp and pink
Seize the Birthday -Pink&Brown or Anything Goes

Thanks for visiting today.

Retro Sketches 222 and Merry Monday


Hey there Friends, I have a Christmas card today. Did you know that you can link up any Christmas cards you make this summer at Merry Monday Challenge Blog?
They are closed to challenges but allowing us to link up all summer for a chance to win a gift card. I'm just playing because I gotta get some cards made! 

I'm following Challenge 211, make a blue, white gold and silver card. This is blue, really! Just teal blue. I put it together using Retro Sketches 222 loosely. 

This card was much prettier without the gold elements. I regret putting them on there. I have a saying I always say. "I crapped it up" by adding the gold. ANYWHO, here it is. :)
Thanks for visiting!

December Daily 2015





Hey Friends, This post has my December Daily 2105 album. I used Becky Higgins, Heidi Swapp Oh What Fun, Value kit. I finished it in January but hadn't made a video.

 My video is not the best but you'll get the idea! It was VERY time consuming to complete in the month of December but I'm happy I have it now. Thanks for visiting!
