Peace on Earth

When I saw the sketch at Fab Friday... I knew I was going to use some of my new goodies!  The papers, stamps and die will be available from SU! on August 1st!

I love the look of white on black cardstock so I embossed the sentiment.... it has been awhile since I did that too!  I created the background on the white cardstock using the Playful Backgrounds.

I die cut the trees from white cardstock, added adhesive then sprinkled with glitter.  They are then mounted on foam squares.  

Here is the sketch:

No worries....

I knew immediately when I saw the TGIF challenge, which papers I wanted to use... this is making me really excited for our cruise... just 5 more days until we leave!

I used the No Worries collection by CTMH, don't you think it suits the theme perfectly?!



I just layered different parts of the pattern paper, then added some stickers from the collection.  I didn't think it was complete without a drink so I used a sentiment and drink from the Beverage Bar set by SU! Finally a die cut sentiment from PTI.

Any cat lovers out there?

Hi everyone, where are my cat lovers?  I purchased the wooden Pretty Kitty stamp set from SU! as I thought my grand daughter just may like to play with them... of course, I had to give them a go :)

When I saw the Fusion challenge, I was drawn to the letters.... so I created a couple of different cards based on the inspiration photo.

First up, a clean and simple one.  See that ribbon?  When did I last use ribbon?!  LOL  I stamped the kitty that was in the flower pot and then just cut him out as I thought he would be cute holding and envelope.  The envelope die is a retired SU! one.

The background label is from the Label Me Pretty bundle set.  I can see me using this set a lot.

Then I decided to be more 'me' and have a go at some pattern paper ;)  I used the Pick a Pattern paper and played.  The background die and pocket die are both from MFT (I think).  
Once again, just stamped the kitties on cardstock and cut out.

Campfires and Marshmallows

I was in the mood for s'more ;) plaid paper so I dug out my Jack Collection by CTMH and played.


A simple card for me, but I love how it turned out.  I just used some dies and a stamped sentiment both from MFT.

Live the life...

I played with some Crate Paper and Reverse Confetti today :)


Lots of layers, some fussy cutting of the roller skates and stamped sentiment, stitching, staples and twine... that feels more like my card, LOL!  I did have fun with this one.   I used the Tall Tag Trio and the Posted Note Sentiments, both from Reverse Confetti. 


I was inspired by this sketch:
