Tag You're It #75 - Hello


Hello Saturday Friends!

Here is my autumn tag for the current Tag You're It challenge.  I love the inspirational fall tag they have shared with us this time:


I made my tag from little bits of this and that which were laying out on my desk.  I love when I am able to pull together a mishmash and make it into something fun!

Enjoy your day and I'll see you again tomorrow.

Curtain Call Challenge - Love and Hugs to my Favorite Person


Happy Friday!

Here is my card to share over at the Curtain Call Challenge today.  The theme is "cuddle" and what could be more cuddly than this bunny giving out hugs?


My little bunny is from MFT Stamps and the sentiment is from Avery Elle.  I think they pair up nicely.

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 they have created.  And join in the fun if you can!

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

Color Throwdown #465 - Thank You


Happy Thursday!

Here is my card for this week's Color Throwdown challenge. I love this color combination!


I used stamps from Altenew and also PaperTrey Ink for my focal image.  Then I added the thank you die cut sentiment, some enamel accents and twine to finish up my card.  I have lots of thank you cards to send right now, so I may be making new thank you cards for quite some time to come.

You can click right here for the link to participate if you would like to join in the fun. This is only the second day, so you have plenty of time to create.  Be sure to check out the designers' work too because as usual, all of the inspiration projects are beautiful.

See you tomorrow!

Inspired by All the Little Things #68 - Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Wednesday!

This week at Inspired by all the Little Things, the graphic for challenge #68 was a little tricky for me.  I finally focused on the burgundy and green in the flowers and just a bit of the blue from the dress.




I always enjoy participating in this challenge and I hope you'll find time to join in too!

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

Gina K. Designs Inspiration Blog Hop - Day 2


Hello Tuesday Friends!

Welcome back!  It's day two of our Gina K. Designs blog hop!  Yesterday we showcased two very talented ladies, Melanie Muenchinger and Theresa Momber.  Today, we will share gorgeous artwork designed by Beth Silaika and Chris Dayton.  As an extra treat, we will show you our new incentive set too

This is Beth's set called Noelle Mouse:


Here is a close up of the card I made using this set.  I masked my image just a bit so that my sassy little mouse could hold a candy cane.  That led to me using the beautiful Radiant Red Fancy Foils and Gina's Ornamental Holiday Foil-Mates to create some red and white striped paper!  Even though it is hard to photograph foil, I think you can see toward the bottom how much sparkle is happening on that paper!




Next we have Chris' set, Purrfect Christmas


Her set seems retro to me, so I tried to portray that in my image coloring.  Not sure I did it, but I like the card anyway.  I masked the bottom of the tree so that I could place the ornaments underneath. I think it's a fun technique!



Nor for our incentive set.  You can have this one for free with a $75 purchase.  What a great set!


I used the Merry Christmas sentiment on this tag and I love how dainty the font is. I think it is really great for cards AND tags - just the perfect touch.

Gina K. Designs Inspiration Blog Hop - Day 1




Happy Monday!

What a great day to start a Gina K. Designs blog hop!  Today and tomorrow we will be featuring the newest sets from our wonderful illustrators.  On this day we have the pleasure of showcasing two very talented ladies, Melanie Muenchinger and Theresa Momber.

This is Melanie's set called Fabulous Holiday Labels:


Here is a close up of the card I made using this set.  I love bright red and light blue together.  And this set offers so many ways to use multiple color combinations!



Next we have Theresa's gorgeous set, Peaceful Holidays


I used one of the smaller images for my card and I absolutely love how it came together.  I am totally committed to white, green and pink with a splash of black.  I would use that combo for every card if I could get away with it!
