I made this card for this week's challenge at Less Is More, challenge #325 - Stripe.  The coffee cup is from Stampin' Up, the donut girl and sentiment are from Neat & Tangled; I just love this set it's so darn cute.  Don't know about you but I can always enjoy a cup of coffee and a donut. 


Thanks for stopping by today :)

Dogwood Branches



This week's challenge at Casology is the word Grow.  Again, I'm trying my hand at CAS cards and although I may have missed the mark this week I'm going to give it a go and enter my card in the challenge.  I used Memory Box dogwood branch stamp and stamped it twice.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.


Thanks for popping by today.
The flowers are starting to bloom in the foothills, won't be long now :)

Muse Challenge #212


It's been some time since I made a monochromatic  card and I must say I'm happy with this one.  I made this card for the challenge at the Muse Card Club this week.  This week's Muse card is by Jenni Murray, here it is:

Glad you stopped by today, have a nice evening :)

Amazing Butterflies


My card was a Featured Member this week at the Muse Card Club :)

I'm a little late with my card for the Muse Card Club challenge this week; somehow time got away from me.  For my card I used a butterfly stamp from Inky Antics and did each in 2 blended colors using my favorite Zig markers.  The Muse card this week is by Tracey McNeely and a pretty card it is (see below):

I took my inspiration from the multiple, colorful spheres on Tracey's card.

Thanks for visiting today, a lovely Saturday here in the foothills :)

Card Concept - Fresh Flutters


The photo that inspired my card is the inspiration photo for the challenge at The Card Concept this week.  I took my inspiration from the white flowers and the pretty butterflies.  I have always liked the sentiment I used on the card, it's so true and perfect for a Spring card.

Here is the inspiration photo:

Happy you stopped by today.  We are having such nice Spring weather here :)

One Layer Card - Curve


It's one-layer card time at the  Less Is More challenge blog this week, one-layer with a curve.  The stamp is from Denami Design called double Lily.  I stamped the stamp 3 times to make the curve, added color with watercolor pencils and stamped the sentiment from Memory Box to complete the card.

Glad you stopped by today :)

Altenew April Inspiration Challenge


I made this card for the April Inspiration Challenge at Altenew.  I used the small flower and leaves from Altenew's Hennah Elements set.  I smooched zig markers for the background and then splashed some blue ink with a paintbrush and water.

Here's the inspiration photo:

Glad you stopped in today and
a beautiful day it is in Sedalia :)

Muse Challenge 210



You know those stamps you have, they are in a drawer, and you almost forget about them?  Well, this cute little bluebird by Inky Antics is one of those stamp sets.  When I saw the Muse challenge inspiration card by Anita Bowden this week, I immediately thought of this bluebird with the big cherry. The inside sentiment is:  with a cherry on top :)

The inspiration I took from Anita's card came from the bluebirds and the ribbon.  Instead of embossing the background I chose to use designed paper with light blue in it.  Here's Anita's cute card:

Glad you stopped by today.  Snow has stopped and the sun is shining :)

"Surprise" Monster


Here's another new stamp I bought yesterday, CC Designs "Surprise" Monster.  As it turns out, this cute monster is perfect for the challenge at Casology this week - Icing.


Happy you're visiting today, still snowing here :)

Shiny Spring!


I bought some new stamps yesterday, Love buying new stamps, don't you?  The butterflies are from Stampendous, and I just love the way they are designed.  I made this card for this week's challenge at AAA Cards - shiny Spring.  The sequins and some stickles add the "shiny" to my card.


Thanks for popping in today.  Snow, snow and more snow today in the Rockies :)

Celebrate Everything


Celebrating the 50th challenge at Inspired by all the little things this week.  I chose to use these sweet, little, happy girls for the celebration.  I used Stickles to glitterize (is that a word?) the white on the girls cute dresses.  I focused on the sparkling white lights and touches of pink and black in the inspiration photo below:
Wishing you a happy, sparkling day!
