Summer Camp!!! Summer Card Camp that is! – Day 1


Hi Everyone!  Well, I’m excited today because Summer Card Camp 2 has started!  Unfortunately I didn’t participate in Card Camp 1, but I know I won’t be disappointed as I have LOVED every onlinecardclass that I have EVER taken.  I’ve tried others, but I just love the way this one is set up and so, if it’s not broke, you don’t fix it!

Anyway, I’m still a bit under the weather, but I was able to watch the entire class AND make a card as well.  I had high hopes of making more than one, but well… there’s this thing that gets in the way, it’s call … WORK.  We haven’t won the LOTTO, so off I must go.  I really enjoyed the class as usual.  Unfortunately I can’t share too many details with you other than my card itself, but, I highly recommend you check the class out.  Go… go right now!!!  Wait… check out my card first and THEN go check it out by clicking right here.

Here is the color palette I used for my card:


And here is the card that I made.  Have I told you yet how much I adore this stamp set by My Favorite Things?  Oh right.. yeah.. I have!  😀



I hope you enjoyed my card today!  I’ll catch you again tomorrow!

Peace Out!

Who Loves a Parade? – A Card Parade That Is!


Hello everyone!  Well, it’s been one of THOSE kind of weeks in my household.  BLEH!  On the very same day, my kid came down with a fever and I came down with an earache.  Anyway, before all that happened I was looking for inspiration for my card making and decided to call on my Facebook friends/family for help.  Knowing that Operation Write Home had 179 sketches to choose from, I asked my Facebook friends/family to choose a number from 1 to 179 and that I would create a card based on the first response.  Well, of course you know I had more than 1 response and how could I say no.  So, off I set to make the cards.  Fortunately I was able to make MOST of the before I got too ill.  Yeah.. 6 days of an ear infection.  1 Doctor visit, 1 ER visit and 1 ENT visit and I’m not all that much better… BLEH!  Soooo here we go!

Who loves a parade?  I love a parade and well, so does Melissa as I first read about card parades on her blog.  You ought to go check her out.  She makes the best cards!!! And well, I kinda love her.  😀  She’s great and has been very helpful to me on my little card creating venture.  So, let’s start this parade!  Dontcha hear the marching band? No? Yeah… me neither. LOL!  First up…


My cousin Pamela O. picked this number as her very cute, adorable, baby boy was born on 12/10.  Here is the OWH sketch that corresponds this number:


And here is the card that I made to go along with the sketch.  Not bad eh?



Here are some of the main supplies used for this card:

Next up we have:


This was chosen by the lovely Tracy P!   The OWH sketch that corresponds to this number is:


The sketch itself is kinda on the eh… simple side, but I do think I did it justice.  Here is the card I made from this sketch.  Isn’t she lovely?  😀



Here are some of the supplies I used on this card.  The paper was received as a gift, so I don’t know the manufacturer of it, so if anyone knows, please let me know and I will edit this to add to it.  The digital stamp is from Pink Cat Studio.

Next in our card parade we have:


This number was chosen by my coworker/friend Christine W. or Christine F.B.W or just Chris!  😀  The girl has more names than anyone I know.  😀  Here is the OWH sketch that corresponds to the number:


Now, I didn’t have that exact shape for the middle of the card.  Yeah, I know… I’m surprised too!  Anyway, I chose something similar and off I went.  Here is the card I made:



Cute huh?

Here are some of the main supplies used for this card:

Next in the card parade is:


My long-time friend Mark O. picked this number because well… he’s just bad and anyone who knows him knows… he’s just bad!  LOL!  So, I rolled with it and here is the sketch that corresponds to this number:


So off to my stamps and markers I went and here is what I came up with.  It’s cute, right?



And once again, here are the main supplies:

So, of course Jack had to get in on the parade and he chose the following number for Highway 101 in Ca!:


Here is the corresponding OWH Sketch:


And here is the card I made using this sketch:


Once again, I used paper given to me, so I don’t know the manufacturer, but here are some additional supplies I used for the card:

Now, last, but not at all least in the card parade is:


Another long time friend Marni picked this number and well, I won’t tell you WHY she did, but uh… let’s just say, her and Mark would make a great pair! Birds of a feather, ya know?   LOL!  Here is the OWH sketch that corresponds to this number:


And here is my final card for the Card Parade!



Here are the main supplies used for this card:

I really hope you enjoyed the parade as much as I enjoyed it!  To my friends/family on Facebook – Thank you!!!  I’m certain these cards will make the family of one of our Great Heroes VERY happy!

Peace Out!

Can’t help it… I love it!

Hi Everyone!  If you look on over to the right hand side of my blog and down a bit, you’ll see a new badge – “10 Minute Craft Dash – FAVORITE”!!!  Woohoo!  Yes, I’m excited to say that I earned the “favorite” badge from and I couldn’t be happier.  I often question how I’m doing as a paper crafter.  I only have a small handful of followers (which I’m thankful for), so comments are few and far between which causes one to wonder… Is it me?? LOL  😀  Anyway, I’ve gotten a lot of feed back on the card I submitted for the 10 Minute Craft Dash #20 and I’m thankful for it.

I have to tell you.  I just love that stamp set by My Favorite Things.  So much so that I had to use it again for my next card, which I’ll be entering in the Moxie Fab World – Tuesday Trigger: Scene in Tangerine!  This is my first challenge on this site and I’m pretty excited about it.  Here is the Tuesday Trigger which inspired the card:

Scene in Tangerine

I have to admit, the inspiration for me was the colors.  Very summery & bright.  So here is what I created with my inspiration:



Aren’t those roses just gorgeous?  It’s really a great stamp set!  And the Technique Tuesday – Loving Words sentiments are perfect!

I’d like to be a little cheesy here, if I may… 😀  and dedicate this card to all the wonderful paper crafter’s that have come in to my life the last couple of years, some of which have become good friends (you know who you are).  I am thankful for each and every one of you!  I hope you enjoyed my card.

Peace Out!
