Happy It’s almost Friday Day!

Over at PaperPlay Challenges the Design Team has challenged you to create a card with the sentiment as the main focus…..and hmmmm…another card out of my comfort zone. I did a bit of die cutting on my Cameo, stamped my sentiment and used foam adhesive to pop the top layer up, giving the card bit more dimension. The butterfly is from the PTI’s Pretty Peonies set and the sentiment, also PTI is from the Half and Half stamp set. My flowers are of course, Wild Orchid Crafts and the paper is from my stash.

OK…so that’s all from me today! Make sure to pop over to the Paperplay Challenge for the rest of the design team inspiration AND to enter of course, because this week we are being sponsored by Whiff of Joy!

Thank you for visiting!!

Sometime...you just have to go for it.


The challenge for The Little Darlings Design Team this month has been to inspire you with something other than a square or rectangle card. This challenge really gave us all the opportunity to jump out of out comfort zone and have some fun, so….I did! Smile
After cutting my card base and all the round layers out on my Cameo, I simply folded the card base in half, making my card base into half circle. From there I just layered my card with some fun papers sent to me by
Angie! She’s a sweetheart, isn’t she?! I ended with sort of a half-circle-tent card.
It was such fun coloring the LDSC image Windy Day!! These images are AMAZING to color and and a dream to stamp!!

Additional Supplies:
Card Base ~ PTI Cardstock
Flowers ~ Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon from my stash

Kraftin’ Kimmie Animal Challenge

Kraftin' Kimmie ~ Calliope


Happy Saturday to you all! I hope…where ever you are the weather is fine. Our Kraftin’ Kimmie hostess for the week is the amazingly talented Angie…and she has asked us to create a card with an animal or an insect. I chose to use the sweet Calliope and Calliope is a mermaid and a mermaid is an animal, right?….Right? Well, If nothing else, she’s half fish, so…at the very least, I’m half right.
Also, our Kraftin’ Kimmie hostess, Angie chose to use the bears from the Lots of Love 2 set. Typically, Kimmie gives the stamp that the hostess uses on her card away to the winner of the challenge….BUT…not this week. Nope. Kimmie, who is always very generous, is feeling even more generous today!!  She’s giving the entire Lots of Love 2 set away! Is that Kimmie fabulous, or what? So..now I know you want to enter the challenge, just be sure to use a Kraftin’ Kimmie image so you’ll be eligible to win.
On top of that, Kimmie’s daughter Emmy has chosen a bunch of her favorites stamps to be on sale for the weekend too!

Totally out of my Comfort Zone…

P1040724

Hello crafty peeps! Today, Paper Play Challenges is asking us to create shaped cards. Easy, yes? Well yes…but…that was not the hard part for me. HA! The hard part for me, always…is trying to make a clean and simple card. NO matter…how hard I try…it just doesn’t happen. What can I say…I’m just a fussy girl. LOL
I used my Silhouette Cameo to make my shaped card,  and even created a few layers too. My sentiment and stamped images are all Papertrey Ink.

So now…the challenge is yours.  Join us over at Paper Play Challenges, create a shaped card and make it as fussy and fancy as you want! Winking smile

I hope to see you there! Thank you so much for dropping by!!

Kraftin’ Kimmie Out of the Box Challenge

P1040846 copy
I’m just going to come right out and say it. I LOVE LULU.
Isn’t she so precious..Just look at that face!
So, our hostess with this mostest, Kerry had requested that we use the Out of the Box technique on our cards for this week’s challenge. Since so many of the Kraftin’ Kimmie images lend themselves to this technique so well, this should be a walk in the park.
For my card, I just stamped Lulu from the Lulu on the Move set twice, snipped off her legs (shudder) and added a second set, so that it would look just like I’d successfully attempted the Out of the Box technique. Winking smile
Alrighty, scadaddle over to the Kraftin Kimmie Blog to see more of the Design team’s inspiration…and be sure to enter a card into this week’s Out of the Box Challenge. If you enter the challenge AND use a Kraftin Kimmie image you can win the very same stamp that Krafty Kerry used on her card!!
Thank you so much for visiting!

Happy Birthday Princess

7 Kids College Fund has such a fun challenge for you this week…and while laying in bed one night, pondering what I would do for this challenge..nothing came to me. That happens quite frequently! HA!
However, while scouring the shapes in the Silhouette store…it hit me! I found this darling Carriage and thought Princess Tilda would be perfect for this little carriage!
