{VLV} With Sympathy

Good Morning!  It's a rainy Monday here....perfect for a day off from the gym, running errands, lunch with some girlfriends, and even some crafty time.

I had a friend need a sympathy card, and the Viva La Verve sketch from Week 5 was a perfect fit.

I used the new Surely Goodness set, stamping the flowers on the DP, then cut them out using the Goodness Flowers Die Set.  I am really loving how you can quickly make a beautiful flower using this combo!

The sentiment was from my Treasured Words set, one of my heavily used ones right now!  I LOVE the fonts!

The paper is from an old pack I found hiding in my pile - MME Stella & Rose Hazel.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Enjoy your day!

{VLV} Happy Birthday

Keeping with my goal for April, I bring you the Viva La Verve April Week 3 card!

I'm slowly building up my stash of cards, and the Birthday cards had been the hardest hit.

Here is the card I created:

I started out by stamping random numbers from the Calendar Countdown set in Versamark ink on my Kraft cardstock.  Then I stamped the sentiment from Treasured Words in Riding Hood Red ink, then cut it out with my nestabilities.

In a never ending battle of cleaning up older packs of designer paper, I pulled out this Birthday Bash paper by Imaginesce.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

{TPE-SC55} Anything Goes

Good Afternoon!

This week the challenge at The Pink Elephant is WIDE OPEN!  So anything goes!

I've been trying to get some wedding photos scrapped (our wedding was almost 8 years ago!).

I used an old Deconstructed Sketch as the starting point for this page.  It was pretty quick to put together too, with all the supplies coming from the I Heart You kit by Fayette Designs.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Make sure to take some time and get crafty!

Birthday Dancer

Good Afternoon!

My daughter had a birthday party for a friend at a dance studio, so we made this card for her.

My DD picked out this image, Tiny Dancer, from Tiddly Inks.  Perfect for a little girl's dance themed birthday party!

She was coloured with copics and cut out using a rectangle nestie.  My DD picked the colours, wanting a pink, black and white theme.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great Friday!

Baby Boy

Good Morning!


I'm back with another baby card.  Since I posted a baby girl card the other day, it's only proper that I add a baby boy card!

I used an old Mojo Monday sketch for this card, one I had tucked away and hadn't gotten to using.  I love the layers in this sketch and the huge number of possibilities for it.

Again, using my favourite baby images, this time Baby Boy, from Tiddly Inks.  He was printed off, then coloured using my copics and cut out.

The paper is from an old pack, I believe it is My Minds Eye.  I've really got to get these piles of paper dwindled some day!!

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a great day!

{VLV} Happy Birthday!

Good Morning!

I am back, for the third day in a row!  I decided that I was going to get back into the Viva La Verve Challenges.  I'm a huge fan of sketches, and when there is the chance at getting some Verve-y goodness at the end of it, its makes it that much sweeter!

I made a total of 6 cards with this awesome sketch.

These new dies from Verve are awesome!  So glad they happened to make it to my house!

I decided to go with a rainbow theme to the card.  I cut out rectangles then used the Starry die to create the stars.  Then I used the die to get the stars in all 6 colours - Real Red, Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron Tangerine Tango & Lucky Limeade.

I then used the Flag It die to create the flags in the six colours. To finish off the card, I stamped Happy Birthday, from Treasured Words, and added some doodles around the edge of the rectangle.

Here is a closer shot of one of the cards:

Sweet Baby Girl

Good Morning!

I'm hoping this can be the start of some regular posting.  It's been so nice to get time at my desk to be a little crafty!

I have a lot of friends who are having babies, so it was time to up the stack of baby cards!

This Baby Girl from Tiddly Inks is one of my favourite baby stamps!  She seems to be a staple on all my baby cards!

She was coloured using copics, then cut out and mounted on the circle.  The paper is so fun and bright, and the name completely escapes me!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Enjoy your Tuesday!

A card....I finally made a card!

Good evening!

As my title indicates, I really did finally make a card, and get it posted!  It hasn't happened in such a long time.  My mojo was GONE for the longest time.  I guess going back to work after being a SAHM for a while killed it.  I think things are adjusting now, so maybe I'll be able to get some creative stuff done again!

I figured a great place to start getting crafty again would be the Viva La Verve Sketch Challenges.  I LOVE my Verve Stamps, and had some new ones that needed to get inky!

My birthday card stash has gotten nearly non-existent, so I'm working on getting it built back up!

I used stamps from Dream Big and Surely Goodness sets, as well as the Scalloped Flowers and Dreamy Leaves dies.

The papers are from the Indie Chic Saffron collection by MME.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'm looking forward to more regular card making!

{TPE-SC53} Um Spring

This week the challenge at The Pink Elephant Scrapbook Challenge was to use a Spring-y theme.  It's not even close to being spring for April here, so my page has a slightly different side to it!

I used supplies from the Bloom kit by Fayette Designs to create this page.  The sketch for this page is from the Sketches in Thyme Challenge #107.  I have just found this blog, and I'll be heading there a lot.  It's always great to have a sketch to start with!

They are having a DT Call also, so head over there and have a peek!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
