thinking of you

Boy has this weather been so weird lately, it's definitely keeping us on our toes here in California from Hot to cold to windy I just wish Mother Nature would make up it's mind and let us get on with some nice weather.

This is another card that I made for our summer mini preview that I had with my demo sistas. I really love this stamp set "On the Grow" it's great for water coloring and so simple. I'm really liking this color combination, I'm not always good with stepping out of my usual go to colors so I've been really trying to challenge myself. So i have really been relying on my trustee color coach to help me with that. Great go to tool! Thanks for stopping by but I must run it's time for family time with my 2 boys! Have a great holiday weekend and be sure to stay safe!

Springtime BUTTERFLY

Happy Saturday! I hope all of you have great plans for the weekend and are going to enjoy this great weather while we have it that is if you are in California. I have my Stamp A Stack Class today and I'm looking forward to seeing all my ladies! We have so much fun together. So I will have to be brief with my post.

I love, love, love this card so much that I had to go out and CASE it. The first time I saw this card was out our mini preview that a handful of us Demonstrators got together for. My up up line Karen Flores made this card to be honest I'm not sure if she came up with this or if she saw it somewhere my guess is it's hers! Look closely the large blue butterfly is our Springtime Vintage Fabric yep that's right our fabric. I applied our adhesive to the back side of it and just ironed it right on to my card stock. Talk about all the different ways that you can use our fabric so if you loved this DSP as much as I did and was sad to see it go I hope that you will give this try it so simple and gives your card that much more texture. Thanks Karen for the great idea. Stay tuned for another card using our fabric. I have to run now as I need to get ready for my class. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Perfect Adventures

Don't you just love this scooter. I have to say that this stamp set was at the top of my must haves when I first saw the mini! That adorable scooter sold me right from the start not to mention its a great water coloring set. I think this stamp set will definitely kick me into gear to practice my water coloring technique. Love, love, love this set. This card layout was inspired by a Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge which are wonderful they are great for new layouts especially if you want to change things up a bit or if as I call it have no creative mojo for the moment! As much as I hate to admit it I do get those moments every now and then, Don't you? Thanks for stopping by and drop me a line I would love to hear from you!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you mom's out there, I hope that you have a wonderful day being pampered and spending time with your families. Here is the Mothers Day card that I made, I had seen this card sometime ago in a Stampin' Success magazine that Stampin Up! demonstrators get monthly I really liked the different use of the embossing folder with the added touch of the textured card stock. I sponged the reverse side of the embossing image which allowed the image to pop. You can see another view by scrolling down. Gotta run I'm off to go enjoy my Mothers day. Enjoy your day and have a great rest of your weekend!

WELCOME Baby Frankie

Good Morning, I'm super excited to announce that my good friend Jen W. had her precious little baby girl Frankie yesterday. She is absolutely beautiful and we can't wait to meet her! Momma and Baby are both doing well and are healthy. =D

Which brings me to my post, I altered these onesie's for Baby Frankie. I'm really happy with the way they came out considering this was my first sew project. I have to say though my mom helped me out a lot. Thanks MOM! I made 3 different ones using our Springtime Fabric I just love this fabric design and was sad to see the coordinating DSP go but at least we still have the fabric to play with, right. I also used our Fabric adhesive to keep my image in place and then sewed them to the onesie, I don't know that I had to do that, being that they were ironed on but I was a bit nervous that they would fall apart so that's the reason I decided to sew them too! Drop me a line and let me know what you think. Scroll down to see each onesie individually. Supplies: Butterfly Die and retired button from the latest SAB aka sale-a-bration catalog

Supplies: Hearts & Brackets Die and the Regals Buttons

Supplies: Fun Flowers Die & Regals Buttons

This one turned out a little different than I had invisioned but I think it turned out pretty cute nevertheless!
