Hi crafty friends!
I hope your Thursday is off to a terrific start!

Today I have a card to share with you that I made for the sketch challenge over at
I played along with sketch #98 which is:

and here is a look at the card I made based on the above sketch:

I recently purchased the stamp set with the telephone a few days ago and was happy to pull it out and use it so fast! Normally I just hoard new stamps and never use them haha! The stamp/die set is actually meant to be used as a shaker element but I decided to just pop up all the center pieces with foam tape and give it another look. I also had this fun patterned paper in my stash that coordinated perfectly with the telephone stamp so everything came together rather quickly. I love when that happens lol!

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

May Project Life Cards

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a wonderful Tuesday!
It is rainy and stormy here so I'm staying inside and getting some crafting done.
I managed to make some more Project Life cards for a future PL layout using the May sketches from Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style Challenge Blog.

I pulled out some fun Polka Dot cardstock and a couple of old sticker sheets to create my cards and once again I had a blast making these cards. If you guys are into pocket style scrapbooking, you really should check out the Sketches In Thyme PL Style Challenge Blog, I love their sketches. 

Here is a look at each sketch and the pocket card I made:

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

Well, I did not work on any of my albums so I have no progress to update. I am hoping there will be a change next month. Fingers crossed!! lol!

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!!

Stick It Down May Card Sketch Challenge

Hi crafty friends!
 I hope your day is off to a marvelous start!
 Today I am here to share a card sketch with you from the Stick It Down Challenge Blog
Stick It Down is a monthly sketch challenge blog. They provide sketches not only for a card once a month, but also for double and single page layouts! Cool right?? The sketches are normally posted on the first of the month with reveals of the design team's interpretations throughout the month. Today the card team designers are showing what they created for this month's card sketch.

Here is another peek at the card sketch for May 2017:

Here is the card that I created based on the sketch:

When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of a long/tall card. I created my card base out of a piece of 7.5" x 9" cardstock. Once folded my card measures, 3.75" x 9". I stamped that cute little Penny Black image onto some white cardstock and colored her with my copic markers.  I stamped my greeting with some chalk ink and drew some lines around the border with a purple micron pen. I popped up my white panel with some foam tape. 

I hope you will stop by the Stick It Down Challenge blog & take a peek at what my design team sisters created with the sketch. I hope you are inspired to join us! I would love for you to link up so I could take a peek at what you created :)

Christmas Card Challenges #13

Hello crafty friends! I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday :) 
Today marks the beginning of another challenge at
Christmas Card Challenges!!

Here is a look at my wreath card:

I used some stamps from Concord and 9th to create my wreath and then I fussy cut it out. I popped it up onto my card with some foam tape for a little added dimension. I added some red stickles to the berries for some sparkle. Can never have too much sparkle on a Christmas card right?? lol!

You Are Out Of This World!

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 have been seeing a lot of Galaxy type backgrounds lately and I thought it would be fun to give it a try and create a card with this technique. 

I started out by gathering all my distress inks that I wanted to use.

The colors of distress inks that I used were: Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, Mermaid lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot. 

Next I stamped my images from the Lawn Fawn Out Of This World stamp set and colored them in with my Copic markers. Please forgive the dark pictures, it was night when I was creating this card.

Next up, I used the coordinating Lawn Fawn Out Of This World dies to cut out my stamped images.

They line up perfectly!

Here is a look at my finished card:

To create my moon, I free hand cut a domed shape and used a hole punch to cut out some "craters". I placed some cardstock behind the moon a little bit darker so that the holes had some dimension. I popped up my astronaut and planets with some foam tape and added a bit of shimmer to my vellum for just a bit of sparkle. 

Here is a look at the Dies R US products that I used on my card today:


Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge BlogThere's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.
