welcome baby

Hello there!

It's a fine morning to share with you a little "welcome baby" tag.

Another friend of mine had a gorgeous baby girl this past weekend, and i needed a tag for her gift.

The heart background image from Got It Covered, was the perfect backdrop for this too cute little teddy bear. The sentiment is from Priceless Joy.


For more inspiration from this month's release, 
head on over to the TAWS blog.

And, don't forget to check out the Be Inspired Challenge, where you can play along for your chance to win a free TAWS stamp set. 

I hope you are having a wonderful week so far!

Yesterday got a little exciting for us because our little man just up and decided to walk!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!


Good Morning, again!!!

Today I have a super simple but cute card using the Avery Elle Happy Spring

There are so many adorable images, but this wreath caught my eye, as did the little top hat.

I used some Avery Elle pigment inks as well, Celery and Lemongrass.

Head on over to the Avery Elle blog for more inspiration!

Enjoy life!

Good Morning!

This is coming a bit late because my internet has been down the last couple of days. Boy, it's kind of sad how lost I felt with out it!!

Today I'm sharing a card I made using the new set Small Talk,
which is the Free With $40 purchase mini set.

I also used the Tag Alongs set for the little chevrons.

shake shake shake!

Good Morning!

I can't even remotely express in words how happy I am this week is over!!
Time for some much needed relaxation,
and family time.

It is also time for a brand spankin' new RetroSketch challenge, 

and this week's sketch is based on one of mine. 
You can see it here.

I actually really enjoy this sketch. 
I think it can be a great way to showcase your favourite patterned paper
 or use stamps, 
like I did here, to create your own fun background.

This card uses images an sentiments from the TAWS set

Head on over to the RetroSketches blog to see more inspiration with this week's sketch from the rest of the DT.

I hope this card adds a bit of brightness and warmth to your day!

I used Avery Elle's new set Simply Said: Hello set, and matching die.

Simply Said Hello 4" x 3" clear stamp set  Our Simply Said Hello 4" x 3" clear photopolymer stamp set and coordinating die will be a staple in any crafter’s collection.

BIC #49 and RetroSketches #104

Good Morning!!

It's an exciting day for me because I get to combine 2 FABULOUS challenges into one. 


This week's sketch is based on this absolutely GORGEOUS card of Arielle's.

Now when you look at my card it will be sort of hard to see where the inspiration came from!!

But for some reason when I saw this photo it made me think of hot air balloons. I can't explain myself but there it is!!

I used Lighter Than Air for the balloon and Speak Easy for the sentiment.

Head on over to the RetroSketches blog to see some AMAZING samples from the rest of the DT. 

And head on over to the new Be Inspired Challenge blog for all the details on how to play along.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
