You are the best chapter!

Hi everyone!
How is your Wednesday going so far?

I wanted to share a card that I made for a couple of challenges. 
They are:

(Anything Goes as long as it includes hand coloring)

Here is a look at the card that I created:

I received this stamp for my birthday earlier this month and was so excited to use it! I've been wanting it for awhile now lol! Anywho, I stamped the books and then masked them so that I could stamp the chair behind them. I used my Scan N Cut to cut out my image and then I colored everything in with my Copic Markers. I stamped my greeting with some VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with some white embossing powder. I popped up my image with some foam tape and added a couple of puffy heart stickers (left over from Valentine's), added some blue baubles to the top right corner and called this card done. I adore how it turned out and how cute would this be for an Anniversary card? I love it!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!!

I decided to pull out some patriotic papers and do a few cards for the upcoming July 4th holiday.

Here are a look at the sketches and the cards I made to correspond with each sketch.

Here is a look at all four cards together:

Ok so last month when I played along, I posted where I was at in each of my three PL albums. I thought it would be kinda neat if I kept myself accountable each month by posting my progress. Here are my stats that I posted last month per album (album year/month currently on):

 2015: November
2016: June
2017: March

I managed to work in a couple of my albums!! Yay!!! My 2015 album is now DONE!! I am also halfway through March 2017. Not much but it's something right?? haha! 

I'm so happy that I was able to get these cards done! I always seems to get them done with just a couple of days to spare each month lol! I used an older Authentique 6x6 paper pad for my patterned papers and I love the vintage/distressed look of them.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a great crafty day!!

FCCB #304 Patriotic

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #304-Patriotism
Make a project about patriotism in any country!

This Weeks Sponsor

Dreaming Tree SVG's

The winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

Here is my project-

I kept my card pretty simple so that awesome greeting could be the star of the show. I made an A2 card base from some dark blue cardstock. I layered a piece of white cardstock on top that I embossed with my Swiss dots embossing folder. I also wrapped it with ribbon before I adhered it to my card base. I cut out that awesome saying from the Independence Day - Freedom Cricut cartridge and sized it to where it covered the majority of my card front. I added a bow to my ribbon and the card was pretty much done. I love how it turned out! Being a military family, I love all things patriotic!

Be sure to stop by the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to see the projects that my design team sisters created! I hope you will power up that Cricut and make a Patriotic project for the challenge! I would love to see what you create!

You Octopi My Heart

Hi crafty friends!
Happy Friday!

Today I have a card to share with you that I made for the

Here is a look at the card that I made for the challenge:

I used some distress inks as watercolors and colored up a background of blues, greens and purples. I then used the Stitched Journaling card die to cut out a piece. I stamped out some cute octopuses and used more distress inks to color them in. I love using those inks for watercoloring :) I stamped my greeting and used a banner from the Bannertastic set to frame it. I fussy cut it out and popped it up onto my image panel. I attached some ribbon to my card base and layered my image panel over it and finished off my card with a few random sequins. I think it came out so cute and i adore the soft feel of it! 

I will also be entering my card into the following challenge:

A Embroidered Hello

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous Saturday!
Today I am back to share a card that I created using some fabulous stamps and dies that can be found in the Dies R Us Store

I love sending happy mail but needed to stock up on some Hello cards. When I saw the Lawn Fawn Embroidered Hello die, I knew it would be perfect and make a unique card.

I ran the die through my big kick and was left with a bunch of holes. These holes are where you do your stitching. I picked out some embroidery thread (DMC Floss) that would coordinate with my card, taped the thread to the back of the panel and started stitching. It was so super easy! I also stamped some flowers from the Lawn Fawn Fab Flowers stamp set and die cut them out with the coordinating Lawn Fawn Fab Flowers Dies and arranged them around my stitched hello.

Here is a look at my finished card:

I popped up my floral panel onto a light pink A2 pink cardstock with some foam tape. I finished off my card with some doodling.

Here is a quick peek (with links) to the products that I used on my card today that can be found in the Dies R Us store:
