Happy Birthday, Nancy!!!

Hi there, blog friends! Loll Thompson is hosting a Linky Party for Nancy Littrell who is celebrating a milestone birthday. Happy Birthday, Nancy!!! I'm excited to be joining everyone for the celebration and will be sending this card off to her in the mail ~

I rarely create floral cards, but I couldn't resist these beautiful blooms from Altenew. I used their inks - 2 shades of pink and 2 shades of green, then I heat embossed the sentiment in gold EP.

Loll's Linky Party will be open for 2 weeks, and all are welcome!

Happy, Happy Birthday to you, Nancy! May all of your birthday wishes come true!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Stamps: Altenew - Wildflower Garden; MFT - Happy Hummingbirds (sentiment)

Enjoy the Adventure

Hi there ~
I haven't played along with CASology in quite a while, and since my mojo has taken flight, I thought it would be fun to kickstart my creativity with their latest prompt ~ Vacation! 

I wouldn't mind spending time on a sailboat like this one, especially after the crazy year we've all had.

I started by stamping the waves in two shades of aqua, then die cut the (new to me) sailboat. I embossed the sentiment in gold to match the sails, but I think the flash on my camera is making it difficult to see. I also stamped the seagulls with navy ink to match the boat and card base...and that was it!

Since the sailboat is new, I am also entering this card in Darnell's NBUS Challenge #18.

I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy! Thanks so much for stopping by,

CAS Christmas Challenge - Reminder

Hello, friends ~ Just a reminder that there is still time to link up your card for the September CAS Christmas Card Challenge. Colleen is hosting this month and she has chosen ‘Christmas Tree’ for our prompt.

This charming little Christmas tree is an oldie but goodie from Papertrey Ink, and I thought it would be fun to ink it up in rainbow order with a gold foil star on top :) I used the Venise Lace Border die to add interest and popped it up on the red card base with foam tape.

Christmas will be here before you know it, and my teamies have created some beautiful cards to inspire everyone ~ Come on over to the Challenge Blog to check them out, and play along with us if you like! You have until the 24th to submit your card!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Polka Dot Parade #9; MFT - Snow Globe Greetings
Dies: Papertrey Ink - Polka Dot Parade #9; Spellbinders - Venise Lace Borders
Misc: DCWV - Gold Foil cardstock

CAS Christmas September Challenge

Hi there, blog friends! It’s time for the September challenge at CAS Christmas. Our Hostess is Colleen and she has chosen ‘Christmas Tree’ for our prompt. Our Guest Designer is Steph from My Paper Corner 

This lovely Christmas Tree stencil was a gift from my dear friend, Loll...I think she must have known that I would love the swirls in the design. Thanks, Loll! I used DOX inks and blended Squeezed Lemonade with Fossilized Amber to create gold for the star. Once dry, I added sparkle with Glimmer Paste...and that was it!

We hope you’ll stop by the Challenge Blog and check out all the beautiful Christmas cards by our DT and Guest Designer...the challenge ends on the 24th, so you have plenty of time to play along with us.....It's a great way to get started on your Christmas cards! 

I hope everyone is doing well ~ Thanks so much for stopping by,

Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Ornamental Style
Stencils: ARTplorations - Christmas Trees
