Leave It To Me....

to finally make a card for the Papertrey blog hop five days ahead, then forget to post it.  I know - the mind is the first to go and obviously, mine is gone.

This is the inspiration photo that Nichole posted.

And this is the card I made........that I forgot to post.  

I pulled a few elements from the photo for my card.  I love the combination of red and aqua, so of course that was my color scheme.  There was a lot of needle point elements, so I pulled the Stitched Sentiments set for my focal point and used the Limitless Layers 1.75 Circle Dies for my frame.

For the plaid bottom I used the Autumn Pattern Pieces.  I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line them up perfectly. As a final detail I added the cross stitch stamp from Sew Simple Borders Mini set and added some twine.  

And there you have it.  A little belated blog hop card from me to you.

Until next time,




Last Week.....

I was on vacation and it was the perfect week.  Considering it is the middle of July, the weather was incredible. I got a few things done around the house, worked outside a bit, did some reading and even spent a little time in my craft room.  I couldn't wait to play with this cute little set from PTI, Note Niblets.   I chose the patterned paper, then chose my ink palette.

Seriously, how cute is that little envelope?!  I added the cute little "hello" from the Ribbon Tails set.  It was a perfect fit.  Then I popped it up on a aqua mist die cut from the 1.75 circle dies. 

I used harvest gold, summer sunrise, aqua mist and hawaiian shores inks for the sentiment.  Once I had all of the elements in place, I had a good bit of white space......and you know how crazy white space makes me.  I pulled out sequins....then enamel dots....then small buttons....they just didn't "fit".  So instead, I pulled out some twine and it was exactly what I needed. 

And there you have it.  A little vacation ditty from me to you.

I broke the news to Sophie and Gracie that vacation time is over and tomorrow it is back to work and fun time is over.  So now we will begin to look forward to our next vacation.....whenever that might be.

Have a great week!


Happy Birthday.....

I don't know about you, but I'm quite happy that the weekend has arrived.  I have come to the conclusion that there is nothing better than the taste of that first cup of Saturday morning coffee.  I sit down, prop my feet up, turn on a Saturday morning news show, snuggle back in to the sofa cushion and then..........take that first sip of hot, creamy "get me going" juice.  Aaahhhhhh.  

So while enjoying my Saturday morning routine, I figured it was the perfect time to pop in and share this little number.  I hope you're sitting because this is two posts in a week's time.  SHOCKING - I KNOW!!  

Now, I'm pretty sure this is the card that Whitney received for her birthday.  I am crazy about these colors! Summer sunrise, hibiscus burst and "mystery" green.  HA!  I made this card back in April and for the life of me, I can't remember which green I used.  I have numerous brands of inks in my color collection and I'm not sure which ink pad I used, but isn't that green pretty?  

I used Stampin' Up's! Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to make the lined images.  I don't have many SU! sets, but I really like this one.  I used an image from Papertrey's Embroidered Blooms set at the end of each of the lined images.  Have I ever shared with you HOW MUCH I love enamel dots?!  OK, I haven't been around much in quite awhile, so maybe you don't remember me telling you that, but I do love 'em!

The sentiment is also from Embroidered Blooms.  I can't get enough of the fonts this set offers.  I wanted the sentiment to be very bold, so I stamped it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  I then added the stamped panel to a true black card stock base to really bring out those vibrant colors.

For one final touch, I added a little cluster of those images inside of the card. 

Well, there you have it, a little Saturday ditty from me to you.  Enjoy this first day of summer and I'll see you back here soon.  



Found It!

It seems as though I misplaced my blog, but I finally found it!  First, let me share a card with you, then we'll have a little chat afterward.

Now as I told you, I misplaced my blog for a while, but I didn't misplace my craft room.  Ummm, I just neglected it a bit.  Here's the process: 1) I walk in the door (take a deep breath and proceed), 2) I go through my stamps 3) I look at the colorful cardstocks for inspiration 4) I open the ink drawer (looking for more inspiration) 5) I cut some papers, stamp a couple of images and then after a bit of rubbing my temples, void of ideas, I get out of my seat and out the door I go.  A day (or few days) later, I go back and complete what I started.  If I'm lucky, I end up with a completed project worth sharing.  Now I happily admit, I loved this card. Now, don't expect a list of all items used......because I don't remember.  I can tell you that all items, aside from the ribbon, is by Papertrey Ink.  That sweet ribbon was sent to me by a friend and it is Stampin' Up! ribbon.

I soooo love the color combo.  The base of the card is aqua mist and the strip of patterned paper is also aqua mist.  I used hibiscus burst for the flowers.  I love the bright color with the softness of the aqua mist.  I used a little cluster of circles (flower centers) as a filler between the flowers and stamped them using harvest gold. And though I have been MIA, you can see that I still love my bling.  I added some bright pink bling to the center of the flowers.  I wanted the sentiment to really jump out, so I stamped it with VersaFine Black Onyx. At least I think that was the ink.  Remember, I made this along time ago.  

And here is a closer look at the patterned paper and that cute ribbon.  Isn't that touch of ruffle cute?!

And there you have it, a long over due project.  

Now for a little chick chat.  I wish that I could say that I've been gone due to wonderful travels and exciting adventures, but I really have no good reason for my long absence, other than I have not felt the least bit my craft room or in blogging.  On a scale of 1-10 on the "ambition scale"  (10 being the highest), my ambition has been at a -10.  Yes, I said minus 10.  I promise to try to do better, so wish me luck.  

On another note, you have heard me often talk about my daughter, Whitney.  Well, the girl has gone and started a blog of her own (nothing to do with crafting).  However, if you want some great chuckles, be sure to go visit her blog.  You can find her at  She totally amazes me with some of the topics she comes up with.  

Okay chickies, I'm out of here.  It is a beautiful day here in Cincinnati, so I intend to enjoy the sunshine and spend some time on my patio.  I hope you have a GREAT day!


When Last We Got....

together, I had discovered that my camera battery needed to be charged, so I had to wait to photograph some of my little creations.  So now that the camera is all charged up and ready to go, let's get to it.

This card came to be because of a few pieces left behind on my desk from another project.  I had cut out several of the flowers and leaves using the Cutting Garden dies and the Boutique Borders: Birthday.  I also had one of the Stampin' Up! embossing folders on my desk that I had not yet used.

Aren't those flowers pretty?  I used Pure Poppy and New Leaf to stamp the images.

I popped the sentiment panel using pop dots.  There's a closer look at that yummy embossed background.

And I just couldn't resist scattering a few of those pretty sequins on the card front.

There you have it.  A card created by using a few "left overs".

I hope that you've had a nice weekend.  It's been sunny, but a bit cool here in Cincinnati, so hopefully spring weather is here to stay.

Later chickies!
