Wee Memories Challenge – Anything Goes!

Woohoo  – its the weekend! It has been a looong week, so I’m very happy to see Saturday :-) 

I’m here today with a brand new Wee Memories challenge – this week the theme is Anything Goes. We are joined by fabulous sponsor Artful Delight who are generously giving one lucky winner a Card Kit – you won’t want to miss this one!

For my card this week I used a strip of Lucy Patterson Washi Tape – this stuff is gorgeous. The tape is based off real vintage kimono designs – the designs are stunning. These are on sale right now – a great stocking stuffer!

Hope you have time to play along this week – the challenge ends Friday December 9th!

Fun Felt Tag

Hi Blogosphere!

Just popping it for a quick post today to share a little felt creation. It was inspired to break out some felt for the Fabulous Felt Challenge in Moxie Fab World and used a sketch over at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog for my inspiration. Unfortunately, I missed the deadline over at Waltzingmouse…This is also for the Anything Goes challenge at A Passion for Papertrey – I used all PTI felt.

Anywho, here is the little tag I created entirely out of felt (and 3 buttons!)

Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend!

Chevron, Butterflies, & Doilies, oh my!

There is a whole lotta stuff going on in this card today – patterned paper, stitching, doilies, felt, butterflies, chevron stripes…

The sketch is based on the Card Patterns challenge for this week and the colors are another entry for Totally Hues #7. I definitely associate chevron stripes with a more modern look, but I think they look nice as a subtle background in this somewhat vintage-y card — so this is also for the Chevron Chic Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

Thanks for stopping by!

Butterfly Birthday Wishes

Happy Monday!

Hope everyone’s weeks are off to a good start. I’m sort of having ‘one of those days’, but hoping to squeeze in a wee bit of crafty time tonight to end it on the right foot ;-)

I’m sharing a very cheerful little card today for the new Cupcake Craft Challenge & there is so much fun stuff going on over there this week. First, the challenge is ‘In the Garden’ – how great is that? The options are endless…I had so much fun with all this bright felt.

Also, this week we’re lucky to be joined by our newest cupcake, Jane, and to celebrate The Ribbon Girl is offering a gorgeous stash of Baker’s Twine (I’m in love with this stuff!). To be eligible for this great prize, head over to Jane’s blog and leave her some love. The winner will be chosen randomly from this blog entry.

Is it the weekend yet??

Wow! What a week – I have been super duper busy! Made this card recently to cheer up a friend and I think it is perfect for the middle of winter…
I got to use my yummy new Basic Grey Hopscotch papers, as well as some new Papertrey Ink Blueberry felt for the rolled flowers.
This card is for the current sketch over at Card Positioning Systems, the Make Your Own Embellishment challenge at Simon Says Challenge and the ‘Live, Laugh, Love’ challenge at the lovely Wee Memories.
Thanks for stopping by!

Warm & fuzzy hearts

Wow, what a crafty weekend I’ve had! Between keeping up with the latest celebrations over at Papertrey Ink & trying to do some magazine submissions, I have been one busy stamper. Doesn’t get much better than that ;-)

A quick Valentine’s Day card tonight – its for lots of different challenges – Sweet Inpriation over at a Passion for Papertrey, Hearts Gone Wild at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, and Love is in the Air over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge. The colors were inspired by the current challenge over at Off the Wall Craftiness and I managed to put this together using just scraps – so, its also going into the scrap challenge at Wee Memories.

Here is the gorgeous inspiration photo from Off the Wall Craftiness:

Thanks for stopping by & to all my American friends enjoy the Superbowl!ο»Ώ

Short & Sweet

A super quick post tonight – just about to head out for a date night but no restaurant booking, so its not looking good for 7:45pm on a Friday night. Oh well – we’ll be spontaneous!

Anyway, wanted to squeeze in this card I whipped up for the current sketch challenge over at Card Patterns. I thought this sketch would be very difficult for me, but found that this came together much faster than usual. I also haven’t jumped on the rolled flower bandwagon yet – not that I don’t love them, just haven’t ventured in that direction. I decided to give it a try using felt for this card & I really liked the result – not perfect, but a decent first attempt! One of my fave color combos as well – red, aqua & kraft.

Thanks for stopping by!ο»Ώ

More Valentine’s Day fun

Hi Everyone!
Hope you all had lovely weekends – went too fast for me as usual and not very much time to get inky! Oh well – hopefully I’ll find a spare minute sometime this week.
I did come up with a few Valentine’s Day Cards for friends & I thought I’d share them. 
I have been really keen to ink up my new Lawn Fawn goodies and they are so fun! The first one is more of a ‘scene’ than I usually create (thus being entered into the Passion for Papertrey challege!). 
The next one is inspired by a card in the Paper Craft’s Color Inspiration for Card Makers magazine that featured a string of hearts – I loved the idea for Valentine’s Day. Here is my take:
Finally used my new Papertrey Ink Heart Prints die & also my Tiny Attacher – what fun!
