Using a Tiny Bit of Felt

Hello! Happy August to you! We have a new challenge: just use fabric!
As you can see I only used a tiny bit on my card today.
 You have a chance to win a $20 to the Serendipity Stamps store, 
all you have to do is add fabric to your card and one Serendipity Stamps product .

I couldn’t make up my mind what card I liked best ,
so I added them both.

I stamped the Christening Gown in pink, then added some felt flowers. 
 I used the tiny things from the Little Critters set, 
All I did was pinch and sew to make the flowers.

Many Products Today

Muse Challenge #176 by Linda S
 Couldn’t wait to play along with my friend Linda !

I had to share these little house I made then filled with crystal beads for crafting inside. 

The tree in the background is from Concord & 9th Take A Bough Die
That was my first try and I will be making many in all colors.

I stamped MFT Fall Florals while I was at Joyce’s house, then fussy cut them out at home, I love that set and need to buy it! I layered it over  MFT Gingham Galore Paper Pack, the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Just Desserts Stamp 

Had the best time with  Joyce and Kim 
 yesterday, never enough time!
Kim made that blouse she is wearing!

Thanks for the visit, sorry it’s such a long post today.

Still Playing Along with Stamp A Faire

Hello !I hope you are all having as much fun as I am
with all the amazing things we are learning from
the awesome Papertrey Ink Designers! 

I couldn’t wait to color block like Lexi!
 Family came over last minute and we all went swimming (very hot here)
when I went back in to finish my card I messed up, not a lot of time to make a new one. 
I cut the bad half off and ended up with this. I know only the bottom half is color blocked.

I had so much watching Kay’s very first video, and like most of you I hope it is the first of many!
 Kay you sound as sweet as you are. I made this early this morning and it came together very fast. 
I couldn’t resist using that gold liquid pen for my splatters. 

Take care and God bless you!

Stamp-A-Faire with Papertrey Ink

Hello and welcome to Papertrey Ink STAMI-A-Faire!
I will be keeping it short as I will be posting a lot of cards 
in the next few days.

I was going to post this earlier in the day but had to leave the house 
right before I was ready to finish this post......

Master Color Recipe Challenge

All the stamps, dies and inks are from Papertrey Ink 
I used the Deco Color liquid gold pen on the card above 
and a silver pen on the card below. 

 I kept mine just like Amy’s

I had so much fun creating this starry night, very much out of my comfort zone. 
Cant wait to give this one a try again when not so busy.

 My card below is for the Gilded Gold.
 I used my liquid gold pen  that I bought over a year ago. It works just like the gold in the  jar.
Love this stuff and no mess. Deco Color Premium-Prime.

Thanks for the visit , hope you don’t mind me posting a lot in the next few days.

Praise Him In This Storm

Melissa made some beautiful cards today on her MIM video by spiriting with water.

Hello dear friends! Busy week for me and then just not feeling like blogging. As I look at my card and the busy waves , I guess you could say thats kinda how my brain feels now and this past week.

I spritzed my stamp with a fine mist then stamped with my MISTI
