This is the wonderful kit that Amy sent.
This photo is from Renee. Thanks
I normally would not overload the tree, but I kinda had to
cover up, because I kept changing my mind.
Dont you love this impression plate. I had to have this one.
                                                             Lil’ Inkers Designs Frame

I love the way this turned out , look closely at the hanging
tag. Love the JOY, from Lil Inkers. And PTI Die
This card is different , but I like it!
The bell comes with the Joy dies
Lil’Inker Designs
The holly is from Lil Inkers and the sentiment is from
Waltzingmouse Stamps. I love this sentiment and had to use it!
This was so simple and fast to make, like the others.
Add the stamp,  the tree and some bling!

Cas-Ual Fridays # 58

CAS-ual Fridays challenge
I am having a bit of trouble with my camera.
This is one of the new Memory box dies I bought last week . So I decided to make a few cards with it, while I wait for my PTI order to come in. I cut apart a few of the flowers added some foam tape , to pop some of it up,  added a pearl, stamped the sentiment and done. This weeks challenge is to use pink, think I got that covered.
 We had another busy weekend. Friday we went to a blueberry farm in Temecula with one of our daughters and her children. Picked berries then watched a movie outside on the owners  beautiful barn.  We all had a wonderful time.  Saturday BBQ at our son in laws parents house,  swimming then games. We love to play any kind of game, cards, board game , poker you name it we play it.  Take care, and thanks for stoping by.

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #102

Edna Morrisedie
This is a better picture but without the added center of the flowers.

This is with the added center of the flowers but a poor quality picture.

Good morning!  This pretty sketch is from Edna Morrisedie over at Waltzingmouse Stamps. I used one of my favorite stamps sets, Earth Angel. At the bottom of the card  I used French Country, stamped in Versa Mark so it would be light.  The flower banner the angel is holding is made with a small punch and I just glued many tiny flowers together and bunched them up, then added a tiny little sparkle thing ( not sure what its called) I bought in the cake section of a Michael's  craft store.
Always, thank you so much for stoping by.

Stamps : Waltzingmouse  Earth Angel, French Country

It was hard not to add flowers or something but I wanted to keep this one clean and simple.
Sorry photo is a bit blurry , just couldn't get a good one.

 Good morning! Hope you all had a  nice weekend.  Mine was busy ,getting ready for Fathers’ Day. All four of our children and their familys were able to spend the day with us. We swam and just had a blast . My husband said it was a perfect day with all our children with us. I got up early and made a ...thank you... card for the blog hop. I got my inspiration from the far left of the photo only. That was my favorite part . Love the creamy trim and wall. I love this set from Waltzingmouse Stamps: Join Us

The Reel Challenge

Click Here
With the stamp I have, I just had to play this one

 I have never made a card for the Ribbon Reel Challenge. When I saw two friends make a card for the challenge and their gorgeous cards, then the inspiration photo…. I knew I had to play . I think I have the perfect stamp for this photo.  I know its more about the color and not the stamp. Since I saw both Jeanne's and Cathy's card I'm sure they inspired me in some way so I want to give them credit. The flower is from Jeanne and I am so glad she didn't listen to me and stuck some red flowers in the bunch she generously gave me…  I love all the gorgeous cards the DT made also , and what is not to love about strawberries and cream…….
                                                    Thank you for all you kind comments

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge

Click Here

I have been wanting to make a weathervane for
as soon as I got the set French Country. I think it
finally came together for me. With 4 stamp sets.

I added Glossy Accents 

This is  for my husband of 36 years.
 This is an anniversary card for my husband of 36 years…. I married young!  I wanted it to say thank you on the front of the card because  he has given me 36 wonderful years. God sure has blessed me with a good honest, hard working man. He treats me like a queen. Oh and how he can make me laugh! 
The mountains have always been due north of any home we have lived in , my husband is also my due north… HOME to me. Even though we are older, I still fill the same way about him as I did when I was dating him. 
When my husband saw my last post ( the baby card)  he said you're not going to post that one are you. I laughed and said I did already. 
Onto the card, I used many stamp sets to make this. Waltzingmouse: Join Us, French Country, Michael's craft store for the letters, The dotted round circle is from Denami Design. Spellbinders dies Twisted Metal  Tags and Accents… ( That I had to have after seeing it on Jeanne cards, she also told me that Cathy gave her a great tip when using S. B. dies … use wax paper… the best idea ever !) SB Banner Ribbons and circles.  Papertrey Ink cardstock . Below is the sketch for the Waltzingmouse challenge.
My guy!

Make It Monday # 70 Puffed Fabric Accents

Hope you all had a nice weekend. I did, it was a bit busy, but I like that. I have many blogs to go visit and make comments on. Hope to do that soon.  Erin from Papertrey Ink, had a fun video on how to use  puffed fabric on your card. So this is the one I came up with. My original idea was to use Sweet Baby Dies but then realized it needed to be a single die. So I just grabbed the heart die that was on my desk. I know I did not line up my gingham die to well , but I am just going to pretend it's the fabric not the stamping. :) The bow is meant to be more of a collar not so much a bow.

Stamps: Papertrey Ink Gingham and Rhythm and Soul
Die : PTI Shape Up Series Onesie, Double Sided Banner
Paper and Ink: Papertrey Ink
