Giving Thanks for the Blessing of You

I joined a swap to make fall/autumn cards and this is what I came up with. This is the first time I've used Inktense Watercolor pencils and I have to say that I really liked them. I think I'm getting to really enjoy working with different coloring mediums, although my heart will always belong to copics!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day!

Beach Bum

I was bummed when I saw the new challenge at Newton's Nook because it's a beach theme and I don't have any of their beach/summery stamps, yet. I then looked around their site and was so happy to discover they have a few freebies and one of them works for the challenge!!!

I have really been enjoying these challenges so I was happy I wouldn't have to miss one! Here's my card~

Have a wonderful day and I hope you get crafty!!

Happy Birthday!

I have several birthday's coming up that I need to send cards for so I thought I'd work on a few new cards for my stash. 

Today I used a cute set from The Greeting Farm called Little Party. I've had it for awhile and it's never seen ink so I thought I had better change that!! It really is a cute and fun set to work with and to build scenes with!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!!

May all your dreams come true

Today I decided to play along with the current Newton's Nook Challenge which is a fun sketch challenge!

I decided to use Newton's Naptime and matching dies for my card. I'm all about naptime!! On the inside it says~ May all your dreams come true.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

For You Wreath

A group that I'm in recently started posting fabulous cards made with Gina K's Wreath Builder stamps/templates. I really like the look of them but haven't gotten the stamps/templates (yet) so I decided to see if there was a way to somehow create the wreath without the template. My search led me to this video by MFT. 

Here's my first attempt at building a wreath. It's not as symmetrical as it will be when I have the template but for a first time I am very pleased. I had so much fun deciding which images to use from the retired SU Blooms & Wishes stamp set and even more fun grabbing fun SU ink colors!

I have to say I love the new polka dot tulle ribbon too!

I'm pretty sure there will be more wreath's in my future!!

Have a super day!

Thank you!

Have you ever had a card go in a totally different direction than when you started it? That's what happened with this card! It just kept evolving! In the end I think it turned out pretty cute!!

The panel with the wheat (?) was colored using SU Watercolor Pencils and a blender pen on watercolor paper. The cute girl was colored with copics. It was fun to add different coloring methods to the same card!

I also sponged ink on the embossed background to make it stand out a bit more. This was a fun card to watch come together!

Have the most wonderful day!
