A happy thank you!

This card was made using the Paper Smooches Sparks blog challenge to use this sketch: 

Here's my take on it, using Material Girl papers by Cosmo Cricket and Paper Smooches "FOLKal Poinst" stamp set.

I love the little stitches stamps that  come with this set.  Cute!  I finished it off with a bit of baker's twine.

Happy Stamping!

You color my world

Just another quick card I made last night... love kraft paper and baker's twine...  and my new Paper Smooches stamps! :)

Happy Stamping!


Sweet Baby Card for Cas-ual Fridays and Twisted Tuesday Challenge

I created this card for my friend Amy, who greeted her second daughter, Della Rose.  This is also for the Cas-ual Fridays #57 of using something clear and keeping it simple, and the Twisted Tuesdays challenge of using something clear and your favorite thing (mine is the color purple!).

Thanks for stopping by!  The baby carriage is from my Stretch Your Imagination Cricut cartridge.

Happy Stamping!

Gingham card for SSD #131

I {heart} gingham.  I have oodles and oodles of retired CTMH gingham ribbon that I just can’t part with, unless it’s part of a card! I am using the Skipping Stones Design Sketch #131

This card is using a Hero Arts stamp set, and is also my take on the Moxie Fab World challenge to use Gingham. 

Makes me smile.

Happy Stamping!

Damask Challenge

I created this card for the Moxie Fab World challenge of using damask.  This is an older sizzix folder that I’ve never used before…. along with a piece of core’dinations cardstock.  I love that stuff!  It doesn’t take much sanding at all to make the complementary color shine through!  

Sentiment is by Wilson Designs.

Happy Stamping!
