Enjoy the little things

  Hello, Happy that you stopped by. Happy Spring to you all. As some of you know I am in a facebook craft group and most of us sends out happy mail to one another. 

A member named Kim sent me some dies and she also sent me a stamp set. She got them from the Dollar Tree. Who ever thought the Dollar Tree would sale stamps and dies? Not me, anyway wanted to share with you the card that I made using them.


The flowers, bumblebee and the sentiment is all from the stamp set and the clouds and black border are from the die set. 

I didn't think it turned out to bad for the dollar tree. I cut out the flowers and bee. Colored them with alcohol markers. 

I will be sending this card to Kim along with some crafty goodies. I'm sure she will like seeing what I made with the goodies she sent me. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Ukraine You're on my Mind

  Hello, So glad you could stop by. If you seen my last post, I had created a card to show my support for the people of Ukraine. So for today I have created another card. 

This Image is a freebie over at  Ink Blot Shop. Thought it was so kind of them. I have seen so many wonderful cards in support to Ukraine created in our awesome crafting community.

In case you don't already know the Sunflower is Ukraine's national flower.

I  colored the flag and sunflowers with different brands of alcohol markers.

I sponged the sky with S.U. Bashful Blue Ink (retired) and I also used a stencil from Stamplorations called Clouds. Sponged the grass with S.U. Ink Wild Wasabi (retired)

The sentiment stamp is a retired set from S.U. called Upsy Daisy.

I watched a video of a woman named Yana on youtube that I follow where she showed how to do a blend free way of shading with alcohol markers so I did that on the sunflowers.  

Yana is from Western Ukraine and has been keeping us updated on whats going on. I know that she is scared and it just breaks my heart. 

Please keep her and the people of Ukraine in your prayers. If you would like to follow her on youtube. Her name is Yana Smakula.

If you create a card showing your support on any mainstream media please add #cardsforukraine to your photo. 

I think that will be all from me today. Thanks for stopping by, God bless!

Hello Card

  Hello crafter's So glad you had a minute to stop by. Today I am sharing a card using that awesome stamp set again, Friendly Hello.


I have to say I am really enjoying this stamp set. I haven't used the paper yet that goes with it. But I will be.

Used alcohol markers to color in the image and cut it out with a stitched circle die. Also used a scalloped circle that was cut out with my Cricut.

The Thank You sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy called Poppies and Greetings.

The pink cardstock is from Stampin Up called Pixie Pink (Retired). 

Embossed it with an embossing folder called Paper Lace 2.

I have been focusing on using my embossing folders since I have been entering the Challenge blog where you have to use embossing heat or dry.

 I still have some embossing folders that I have never used. So my goal is to use everyone of them.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a super day! Until next time,

Stay Safe & Stay Crafty!!!

Freindly Hello Card

  Today I have another card share for you. If you seen my last post you seen that I had received the Friendly Hello Stamp set for my birthday. 

So I wanted to make another card with it. So here is my card share for today.

I stayed with the same colors as my last card. I really liked the blue and coral together. 

I stamped the flowers with Calypso Coral Ink on to Calypso Coral cardstock. Stamped the leaves in Old Olive Ink. 

Fussy cut the flowers and leaves out. It would be nice if this stamp set came with matching dies because I really hate to fussy cut. 

I also added some Wink of Stella to the center's of the flowers.The sentiment is also from the stamp set. 

Spotted this embossing folder and thought it would be perfect for this card. The folder is called Scroll Frame.

Thanks for stopping by. Stay Safe and Stay Crafty
