STB#, MTs 133, Sail Away With Me!

Although we don't own a sail boat, I love the idea of sailing away for a day and just enjoying the water and peacefulness that seems to go along with sailing :-) ~ my little birthday cards gives me a sense of peace and calm in the midst of the storms that we seem to be facing lately!

I loosely followed the sketch from Match the Sketch (hope that's okay) and my favourite birthday site, Seize The Birthday challenge. I have been committing to sending out birthday wishes this year and doing pretty good with keeping ahead of it all (although, this past week and a bit, haven't been done) ~ belated cards, here we come!

What a fun day of creating for me ~ I guess this really has become something to sing about...figuring out my creating without a studio in our new Condo ~ LOVE IT!!!  This forces me to stay organized and tidy as I go...quite a feat for this gal!!!
Here's a view of the sunset the other evening ~ and of course the pictures jus don't do it justice AT ALL!!!  Painted by the very Hand of God!

I needed a new Birthday card pronto, so I got to work this morning, found some challenges that I wanted to join and had a blast playing along! Seize The Birthday (Anything Goes), Freshly Made Sketches and a wonderful color challenge at IN(K)SPIRE me, is where my inspiration was birthed!




there is still time to play, so why don't you join in the fun!

Here's my birthday card ~ I actually don't own Blackberry Bliss or Lost Lagoon (shocking, I know), so I used rick Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay ~ hope that's okay!


I think I went to little too stamp crazy on my Sahara Sand CS, now that it's complete, I'm wishing I would have stamped a little less with my colors ~ I know my brother will love this though!

Four Challenges, One Card!

What a fun day of creating I had today ~ I can't believe I finally inked up my Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set ~ I've had this sitting in my cupboard for months...today was the day...I was determined to use it and found my starting point with these fabulous challenges that I played along with... I started with Color Throwdown, loosely followed the sketch from Sugar Pea Sketch 47, found inspiration at The Card Concept and because this is a birthday card for a friend, I jumped in at Seize The Birthday!  Join in the fun and come create along with everyone!!!



I used Old Olive and Tempting Turquoise on my Whisper White Panel ~ it's almost hard to see the white with all the stampin' & sponging that I did...but it's there!!!


As I said previously ~ I very loosely followed this sketch ~ love the sketches found on this site!

 My inspiration came from seeing so much going on in the photo, so I followed #5 ~ Free style Collage ~ lots of sponging as well as a lot going on Whisper White panel


Wow...and lots going on with all this...so onto my birthday card ~


~ thanks so much for popping by ~ I hope you enjoyed your time here ~ 
 ~ Have a wonderful day ~

TSOT#261 & STB

I've been having so much fun creating in my new small quarters ~ our second bedroom is working out quite nicely ~ I've gone from an 1800 sq foot studio to a regular size bedroom. It has a sofa bed (grandkids/guests sleepover bed), big screen TV and a lot of my toys nicely stored in the closet!  So it really isn't about how much you have, but how you make the most of what you have :-)

I love creating masculine cards...not an easy feat, but this sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday was absolutely perfect for my card.


although I don't have a sentiment on the face of my card ~ I did create this as a birthday card, so I'm hoping that the lovely gals at Seize The Birthday will accept this an an entry for their current challenge ~ do come and join in the fun with these fabulous challenge blogs


Onto my card ~ what do you think?


thanks so much for popping by, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask ~ have a wonderful day!

File Folder ~ Are You Serious!

I have a friend who wants to have a friend gathering, featuring a mini album...and so I went on a Pinterest hunt, and I found the sweetest little album on YouTube using File Folders! I can't wait to teach this class ~ here's a peek at what I created...now to cut my kits!!!
This is the cover, I used a long time retired button for my closure and some hemp twine!


The two pieces that are sticking out are little slide outs for pictures 
and the back side has lines for journaling



and another page


there are twelve pages in all and 6 slide outs


I used a sponge and Chocolate Chip to give the edges a vintage look and then I stamped using Crumb Cake and various stamps to give the pages some dimension and vintage look as well ~ I'm really pleased with the outcome, hope the girls feel the same way!

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ have a wonderful day  :-)
