Color Throwdown #452 - Get Better Soon



Hello Wednesday Friends!

Here is my card for this week's Color Throwdown challenge.  And here is the pretty inspiration photo they have shared with us:



My dies are from MFT Stamps and my sentiment is from Lil' Inkers Designs.  This would be a great card to replicate and have on hand when you need a get well card.  I think it could be copied and mass produced easily!

You can click right here for the link to participate if you would like to play along.  You still have plenty of time  because this is just day one!  And be sure to check out what all the designers have made to inspire us this week.  You'll be glad you did!

See you tomorrow!

Thanks


Happy Tuesday!

I haven't shown you a shaker card in a while, so here's a pretty in pink one.  I thought the stamped background inside the window looked like Victorian wallpaper, so I kept the rest of the palette subtle - just pink grey and white.

Have an absolutely wonderful Tuesday and I'll see you again tomorrow.

Curtain Call Challenge - You Float my Boat


Happy Monday!

Here is my card to share over at the Curtain Call Challenge today.  Look at this peaceful aquatic scene and you can't help but think, SURF'S UP.
 


I couldn't resist using the You Float My Boat stamps and dies from MFT Stamps.  It was all very tricky to get the sails, the flag and the boat stamped correctly on the die cut.  Many boats were lost to the round file, but I finally got one to work!  I may have just had an off stamping day, so I'll be trying this set again soon.

This is such a fun challenge and the team members are all so talented!  Don't forget to pop over to the blog to see what the team has created.  And join in the fun if you can!

Have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow!

Hello Sunshine


Happy Saturday!

I've been loving square cards lately.  I think it goes back to my scrapbooking days when I did 8x8 layouts.

Anyway, this little guy was made using products from Gina K. Designs.  Here is a picture of the stamp set I used called Framescape - Tropical Skies by Theresa Momber:


I used the smaller sun on the water image for my card.  This stamp set is so wonderful for building scenes, but this time I went in a different and more simple direction.  Sometimes simple is good!!

Have a terrific Saturday and I'll see you again tomorrow.

I'll be Brief - Happy Birthday


Hello Friday Friends!

Yesterday was my only son-in-law's birthday.  He is the dad of two boys.  And as you know, one of the funniest things EVER is underpants if you are little boys.  And EVERYTHING associated with underwear is fair game too!!

When I saw this adorable stamp from Lil' Inkers, I knew it would be a winner for his birthday card.  It is called I'll be Brief and it is just so cute!  Here is a picture of the entire set:


I can't wait to ink up the other characters.  All my friends should be aware that there could be undergarment cards coming their way soon!

See you tomorrow!

Color Throwdown #451 & Altenew July Challenge - Love You


Hello Thursday Friends!

Here is my card for this week's Color Throwdown challenge.  And here is the very summery inspiration photo they have shared with us:


I knew right away that I wanted to use some Altenew products to make my card.  I used three different stamp sets to stamp on the letters and two different stamp sets for the backgrounds.  Since I used so much Altenew product, I decided to send it over to their monthly inspiration challenge.  The colors were just right in the photo:
