Hello! Squeezing in a little crafty time today to play along with Tag You're It. My sweet friend and 12 Kits teamie Kim Heggins is the featured artist for challenge #70. I pulled several elements from her design, but changed up her bear for my favorite little pup.

I stamped, colored and fussy cut my mini schnauzer stamp (Bugawumps) to look like our handsome little Max. I miss our sweet boy everyday. This stamp makes me smile and brings back memories of him getting excited over a treat. He would perk his little ears up, look bright eyed and happy with that tiny tail going a hundred miles and hour!!

My tag base is a PPP Stitched Essentials with the grassy area (cut with Scallops Borders die) layered on. I've used a sentiment, teeny heart and underscore from my Sweet Pea Stamp set. 

Thanks for popping by! 


Wishing You Happiness!

Hi there! I have a card to share today for PTI's Make It Monday challenge. This one took some thinking, but I'm happy with the results!

I knew I wanted to use one of the hearts from the Limitless Layers set for the die cut opening. When looking through my  sets to fill it, I came across my Bells and Boughs stamps and knew the bows would be perfect! I die cut the large version of it for my focal. Pretty Peonies blooms and leaves completed it. I sprinkled on some PPP Sparkling Clear Sequins (4mm & 6mm) to kick it up a notch and coated the large bow with WOS. The sentiment is from Mat Stack 4.

Have a wonderful weekend!


Happy Birthday!

Yes...it's me...are you shocked! It seems like forever and a day since I've made and posted something. But here I am with a card for this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge!

I followed the sketch pretty close, just a little change with the added borders. I think that's the rust showing through and lack of mojo. Some ancient paper fit my mood today along with a pretty little butterfly button I had on hand. It's threaded with some gold twine to compliment the metallic gold (4mm & 6mm) PPP sequins. My favorite Stitched Borders 2 die from PPP was used on the gingham paper. The sentiment and banner are by RC. A sweet simple card to get me back in the game!

Have a blessed day friends!


Tag You're It Challenge Reminder!

Hello, hello! You still have time to play along with Tag You're It challenge #69. I am honored to be their guest designer and have another inspiration tag for you! 

Once again my inspiration comes from Joyce's fun pompom topper. For mine, I used a length of tiny pompoms to create a flower center. The flower petals are PTI's Beautiful Blooms II. The tag is made from a Spellbinders postage die, MME paper and a little cat from a previous 12 Kits of Occasions kit. I had to put my tag on a card this time around...I sort of ran out of room for the sentiment...oops!!

Pop over to the Tag You're It blog to see more inspiration from the team. Thanks so much for stopping by. Your visits mean so much to me!


Many Thanks!

Hiya! I missed the boat on last week's PTI's Make it Monday  and didn't get my card entered ~ shucks. Lexi's challenge was called "Stamping Outside of the Box". I liked what I had made and thought I would share it anyway!

I've used the polka dot image from Mat Stack 4 along with Polka Dot Parade #6. The little dot comes from Beautiful Blooms II and those teeny dots stamped in Classic Kraft ink are from the Rustic Wreath set. My little patches of grass came from Love Lives Here. The other inks used are Berry Sorbet, Harvest Gold, Pale Peony and New Leaf. 

Have a delightful day!
