Blogging Friends Blog Hop

Image may contain: text

Hope you have had a good February and are ready for all that March will bring!  This month for our Blogging Friends blog Hop we are celebrating Sale-a-Bration!  The most wonderful time of the year - Stampin'UP! style. 

My favourite free Sale-a-Bration item is the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper.  If you follow my blog, you know that I am addicted to patterned paper.  I tend to hoard my favourites and this is one of them.  There are so many awesome patterns in the pack. This one is Lemon Lime Twist with lots of carbonated bubbles!  Way too cute!!

I knew I wanted to use my Bubble Over Bundle to go with my DSP.  I used my sponges to colour the bottles to make some flavoured pop.

My greeting is from my all time favourite stampset, Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Be sure to hop on through and see favourites my blogging friends love from Sale-a-Bration!

Happy Stampin'

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello there,

So glad you took some time to stop by on Valentine's day! I have a super cute card just for this special day.

I took the opportunity to participate in 2 challenges this week, a Hand Stamped Sentiments and a colour challenge over at The Paper Players.

Here are the two challenges....




 Awesome, right?  I truly LOVE this colour combination.  I have used it a number of times.  I think it is a classic!  

I used lots of layers to make this card extra special.  My Stitched Shapes Framelits helped frame this curvy heart from the Sweet and Sassy Thinlits collection.  

My sentiment is from the Flourishing Phrases stampset and the teeny tiny little hearts are punched using the retired Confetti Heart Border Punch. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the square, the heart and the sentiment are all popped up on dimensionals.  Bringing more attention to the focal point of the card.  And as usual, I couldn't resist adding a cute little bow.

Hope you enjoyed my card.  Have a wonderful Valentine's day!

Happy Stampin'

Thank you for Sunday Stamps

Hey there,
Happy Monday.  I hope your weekend was wonderful and relaxing.  We had only a few things scheduled this weekend, with three busy boys, that is a relaxing weekend.  lol
I did carve out some time to create a little using the sketch challenge SSC172 over at Sunday Stamps.  I loved this sketch that they have for us. 
I found some super cute DSP that gave me the colour inspiration and set the tone the rest of items on my card.  Here it is...
 The DSP is perfect to pair up with this little bee from the Dragonfly Dreams Stampset.  I stamped it on Very Vanilla and then cut it out using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.

I popped him up on on dimensionals and onto a stitched Shapes Circle.  My greeting is from Thoughtful Banners and stamped on a little scrap of Very Vanilla.  What do you do with all of those tiny 1/2 inch strips left over?  I like to use them for my greetings.  
I almost always add a bow to my card, but this time I let this cute little bee, be the star.
Be sure to stop on over to Sunday Stamps to see all of the cards created with this sketch as inspiration.
Happy Stampin'
