Your Next Stamp Birthday Wishes

Good morning!

Your Next Stamp has gorgeous colors for the current Sketch and Color Challenge and I thought they would be perfect for this image from the new Love Birds set!  I made a subtle background for my card using the little heart stamp on some sandy cardstock, then added a few pops of color with my colored image, a strip of hot pink cardstock and an embossed green circle.  I added the dots on the cup and bird with a white gel pen.  The sentiment is from the Whatnots Sentiments Four set.  I love that script!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you'll play along with the challenge!

Thinking of You

I have a card to share for the Your Next Stamp Sketch challenge today, made with the SO adorable Plant Some Kindness set.  Aren't those sweet little flower faces so HAPPY??  I pulled out the Doodlebug Bunnyville paper that I got for Christmas and used it for my layers, then added a heart from the new Scripty Love Die Set as an embellishment tucked into a cluster of bows and gold cord.

Along with the YNS Challenge I'm also linking this over at Word Art Wednesday.

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Hedgies

Happy grey rainy afternoon!  I think we are expecting freezing rain and ice in a little bit so I needed a cozy card to warm me up and this sweet digi by Gerda Steiner Designs fit the bill.  Aren't they such a sweet pair??  I used a sentiment from a retired set by Your Next Stamp because it made me smile and it is so me.  I think this will be my husband's valentine, along with a Hershey Nugget cake.  He's been begging for another ever since I gave him one for Sweetest Day in October. : )

Check out the Gerda Steiner Challenge and play along!

Older and Wiser

Hello again!

Well, I figured out how to get my watermark on.  Progress!! :)

I had seen this sweet owl set on Anita's blog and was excited to pick it up for myself.  You can tell that I am looking forward to spring, because I am using flowers and brightly colored papers rather than winter-y ones. :)

I made this card to enter in a few challenges, although some of them might be closed already...

Kindness is Contagious

Hi there!

I've been trying to get cards made all week and just haven't been able to concentrate.  And I haven't had time to figure out this new computer yet and how to edit and resize my pictures and put on my watermark.  Ugh.   If you have a newer Mac I'd love to know what programs you use! :)

My card today was inspired by the Mojo Monday Sketch and the Flower Challenge to use the colors blue and yellow.  I used an older retired stamp from The Angel Company for the image and then a wonderful sentiment from the Dynamic Duo set I got from Your Next Stamp in their retirement sale.  I think they still have some of this set left if you hurry!

Thank you for stopping by!

You're Fintastic!

Hi everyone!  Happy New Year!

I took a longer break from my blog than I meant to, but it was so nice to rest and relax with my family over Christmas.  I hope you had a great time as well!!

Today I'm playing along with the "new" challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  I used a new mini set of stamps from Your Next Stamp, a new set of dies from Taylored Expressions and some new Doodlebug paper.  So fun!  I also have a new computer and I am NOT sure how I am going to figure out how to edit my pictures now!  Uggh!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
