Thank You Card and Announcement!

Hey everyone!!  I told you a little while ago that I had some fun news to share with you, and even though it is a bit late, here it is: I have been chosen as an ambassador for ADORNit!  

WooHoo!!  I love their crafty products and clothes.  I was sent a fabulous box filled with fun things like paper, wood pieces, Art Play Paintables, and many yummy items that I can't wait to share some of them with you.

First up is this fun water-colored card that I made from some Art Play that I have had on hand.  I just love the quality and texture of these Art Play paintables.  They are perfect for adding color from so many different coloring mediums.

I used watercolor crayons and the yummy pink polka-dot paper is also some paper from ADORNit.  Here is a closer look at the card image.....

So, what do you think?  Isn't this a cute little card and I had so much fun coloring that image.  I hope to have more to share with you this next week, so stay tuned!

Autumn Greetings!!

Hello everyone!!  I am here to share a fabulous autumn themed card with you using yummy bakers twine from The Twinery.  There is a fall/themed week over on The Twinery blog and if you are looking for inspiration in that department, head on over and check out what the other designers have been working on.

Today I worked with some Cappuccino bakers twine to accent my Autumn Greetings card....

The pumpkin images are cut out with my Cricut Explore and I used the Piles of Smiles from My Creative Time for the sentiment.  I used the yummy Cappuccino bakers twine from The Twinery to tie around the stems of the pumpkins and then wrapped it around the top and the bottom of the cream cardstock as a border.  Here is a closer look......

For added depth and texture, I used some ink for shading the edges and also some pen accents.

What is your favorite thing about fall/autumn?  I have lots of things I love about is my favorite season (well, that and spring).  I can't decide if I love the cooler sweater weather better or the changing leaves.  How about you?

A Birthday in the Bag featuring SRM Stickers and The Twinery

Hello!!  This week I got to post on a fun feature on The Twinery blog using SRM Stickers.  I was sent some beautiful and yummy SRM Stickers with a birthday theme and here is what I created with them.

I used the We’ve Got Your Sticker/Happy, Labels by the Dozen/Bright Blank, and Sticker Stitches from SRM Stickers along with the 4x6 Kraft bag.  The twine is a soon to be release over at The Twinery.  It will be in limited supply, so be sure to get your hands on it when it goes live.  Here are some closer pics of my project.....

So, there is a quick and easy gift idea for someone in your life.  Hop on over to The Twinery blog to see all the wonderful SRM Sticker/Twinery combinations this week.

Apple of My Eye Mini Card Set with The Twinery

Hello, hello, there anyone out there??  Well, I wouldn't blame you if there was no one out there.  Postings have been rather sparse lately.  I have been busy with lots going on including getting the new school year started, kids activities, and some fun news I will announce later this week.  I did have time to break away and get this super fun little card set created to share with you.

I used some yummy Peapod bakers twine from The Twinery on this card along with the first stamp set I bought from the Unity Stamp Company called Hodge Podge of Happiness.   I stamped, colored, and cut out the apple images, stamped the sentiment directly on the card and then adhered the apple with foam adhesive.  I wrapped a few layers of twine around the bottom of the card.  Here is a closer look......

The cards measure 3 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches.  The perfect size to slip into a lunch box or bag before my kids or hubby leave for work or an outing to let them know that I am thinking about them and that I love them.

If you enjoy my project today, please leave a comment below letting me know and then hop on over the The Twinery blog and let them know how much you love the look of their twine on projects.

Have a great day!!
