Feliz Navidad

Hello!  I've been digging in my photo archives for things I never shared before here on my blog. Here's one:


It was submitted to Paper Crafts Magazine, but not chosen.  I forgot all about it until recently.  The background is Punched Tin from Market Street Stamps, and the sentiment is from Verve

Thanks for letting me share this oldie with you!

Something To Be Thankful For

Hello!  Isn't this the best sentiment??  It's from Stampin' Up!'s You Brighten My Day.  (I used another cute sentiment from the set in a card on Wednesday; you can see it HERE.)  


I think the overall design has a Thanksgiving-ish feel to it, but I'd love to give it at any time of year. There truly is something to be thankful for every day.

In the background, you can see the Hardwood stamp from Stampin' Up!, a new-ish purchase for me.  Then, I layered on bits of a salvaged store-bought greeting card (the orange, red, and glitter), and a fun tag.  The tag is from a friend, and it had some buttons attached to it, though not these, and also the satin ribbon.  I strategically covered the holes with vintage buttons and the sentiment, which had been colored with Distress Ink sprays by Ranger.  Had received a bunch of them for Christmas, and this is the first time I played with them.  


Very thankful YOU dropped by today!  Enjoy your weekend!

"Yay" for a birthday

Hello there!  We've made it to the middle of the week.  YAY!


This is actually a birthday card, not a "we've made it to the middle of the week" card, but I suppose it could be for anything you want to celebrate.  I used some new-to-me Date Night / Chickaniddy Crafts goodies (from the local Tuesday Morning shop):  the patterned papers, and the big flower sticker.  The sentiment is also new, from Stampin' Up!'s Sale-A-Bration:  You Brighten My Day.  I love that set.


And, near the sentiment, a current obsession:  Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.  Oh, man, I am tempted to use 'em on nearly every card.  LOL  I need to hold back sometimes!

Thanks so much for coming by today!

Geometric Rainbow

Bet you never saw a rainbow like this one:


A while back, I had won some neat patterned papers from a fellow blogger, and in the pack (unsure of the brand; sorry!) was this woodgrain, with a bit of geometric color up top.  I thought it would make a good rainbow! The house, sentiment and cloud dies are all from Papertrey Ink (see supply list at the end).

Oh, quick note about the small cloud die:  over the weekend, I used it, and the paper wouldn't come out, so I tapped it on my table a few times.  The die bounced away from me, and I've pretty much turned the craft area upside down....cannot find that little cloud die!  I have to order a new set.  Can't use just a big cloud all the time!

Thanks so much for coming by today!  Have a terrific day!
