Find Joy....

I purchased this butterfly stamp last Summer while in Wisconsin for a wedding and this is the first time I put ink to it.  Not sure why I didn't do this sooner, it's a very nice stamp :)

I took inspiration for my card from the Fusion Challenge sketch this week.  I added some red to the butterfly to accent the photo for the fusion challenge:

Glad you stopped by, hope you find some joy in the ordinary today :)

Wish Big!

Well, why not?  If you are wishing you might as well Wish Big!!

I keep trying to break away from the colors I always go to, blues, greens and pinks.  I'm making progress, only used a little bit of blue and green on the butterflies :)  

I'm entering this card to 2 challenges this week:


Thanks for stopping by today, enjoy!

Gnome Friends

Gnomes again, can't get enough of these cute little guys.  I just got a kick out of this whole My Favorite Things "You Gnome Me" stamp set that I recently added to my stamping stash.  

I am going to post this card to the My Favorite Things Facebook page and to the challenge over at Virginia's View - layers & dimensions.

Thanks for stopping by today, Gnomes Rule!!

Sketch #182 over at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge blog is very clean & simple (CAS) this week.  Since I'm in a "Spring state of mind" I put flowers and a butterfly together for my card.  The little hello and butterfly dies are from Memory Box.  Here's the FMS sketch:

So glad you flew over to my blog today :)

Pawsitively Awesome

This little girl and her dog stamp from My Favorite Things is so darn cute.  This could be me when I was a little girl.  I've always had dogs and can't imagine life without them.

I am entering this card into 2 sketch challenges this week:

Happy Spring

Springtime in the Rockies, beautiful.  We always have some rain, some terrific thunder and lightning storms, 70 degree days, 40 degree days, and it goes on and on.  I LOVE SPRINGTIME!

I am going to enter this card in 2 challenges:

Virginia's View - Layers & Dimension
Simon Says - April showers and/or Spring flowers

A very Happy Spring to you :)

Runway Inspired #81

The inspiration for this card comes from a fun dress by Jeremy Scott at the Runway Inspired Challenge.  I love the colorful dress (see below) and was inspired to cut scrap paper into pieces for my card.  I glued the pieces of paper together, added a circle sentiment, a feather and a sparkly gem.

Here's the dress:

Happy you stopped by my blog, get colorful today and have fun :)

A thank you card...

Predominantly Black is the color challenge at Less Is More this week.  

I needed a thank you card and this card fits the bill perfectly.  You see, I recently stayed at a friend's house while out of state and every morning I was awaken by the sweet chirps of little sparrows who had made a nest under the window.

So glad you stopped by, Happy Easter to you and yours.
