Yay, got to do another quick challenge! Went to Clean & Simple for the sketch since I will make more than one of the same card! (Need to catch up on my Christmas cards for Operation Write Home). I remembered I had this cute Cindy Lou stamp from Amuse stamps and knew it would be good for this sketch! And decided to use non-traditional colors!

is the sentiment I would use if I had it for this card! Finally had a little time to make a simple card! I usually try my best to squeeze in some kind of crafting whether it be coloring, putting together a card, etc. just because it really is therapy after a long day and of course...it's fun! :) I actually had this Soft Pencil digi already colored.
I also wanted to share the card and matching tag I received from my partner for June, Grace.
It's so pretty!
Can't believe July is coming up so quick!
I'm excited for the long weekend coming up!
Hope you're all having a wonderful week so far!

Sad I haven't posted in awhile! Life's been busy! :) Guess it could be good and bad...I miss crafting!! I had to make time to finish my Secret Sister swap for June!! Don't want to be sending it late!! I made an altered notepad following a sketch from Mojo Monday. I like how it came out even though I took so long trying to match the colors! Hope she likes it!
And here's a magnetic calendar I made for her too...
My birthday was yesterday and just wanted to share some cards I received...
Gotta keep it short...one more day of work til the weekend! Yay!
Thanks for visiting!

Hmm...could not think of a more creative blog post title! :) My brain is ready for the weekend! :) Got to do another sketch challenge...yay! I think it was my first time participating at Card Patterns! There's just so many challenges I want to do and not enough time!
I decided to make a matching gift tag...
Made these for my CATS partner...the theme this month was butterflies.
I don't have any butterfly stamps so I had to use the punch.
Have a great weekend!

Did some cleaning this weekend...if you know me, I'm a total packrat but I'm trying not to save every little thing anymore! It just gets crazy and you forget what you already have! I used to keep every single card I got! I'm finally starting to weed them out. For some of them, I just had to recycle them to make another card! I love finding ways to be green! :)
Most of them were thank you cards but it's one type of card everyone needs anyways.
Hope your week is off to a great start!
Thank you for your visit!

Decided to make another Christmas card...cause it will be here before you know it and I don't want to be scrambling! :) I was digging through the many stamps that have not been inked yet...and I saw some Christmas stamps by The Cat's Pajamas. I love their penguins! This was my second card after my trip and wow, mojo is still somewhere else. Hopefully third is the charm! :)
Challenge: Sketch Saturday
Well back to work tomorrow...had a great long weekend!
Hope you all did too!

Finally got to make a card after returning from vacation! It was nice to go on another trip! :) I had Birthday Anya already colored so I just need to find papers to match. I think my mojo was still on vacation! :(
Challenge: TGF Farm Fresh Challenge
I also wanted to share the goodies I received from my May SS, Jayne from Michigan.
A beautiful card she made...
and a very generous RAK...
Thanks so much Jayne!
I love everything!
Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

Yay, got to do another challenge! I finally made my first "get well" card! Need to make a stash of these cards too...my grandma asked me for one the other month and I didn't have so she had to buy. Used the Basic Grey paper: Hopscotch and I practiced more copic coloring...I watched some videos on youtube. Not many good videos though. Does anyone know other places to watch copic blending videos?
Challenge: Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge
Thanks for visiting! I'll be back in a week...going on vacation from work! yay!
