happy camper

Happy Thursday crafty friends.  My card above is for the MFT Sketch Challenge, it uses a MFT vintage trailer and a new sentiment I got from my friend Lindsay, who designed some new stamps for Impression Obsession, which should be out soon.  For those of you who missed the detail along the road, my husband and I are building a campground, click here for more info.    

And this card was just for fun, using Reverse Confetti sentiment and Lawn Fawn cups and some scraps of patterned paper.  I got my Coffee Lovers card swap card yesterday in the mail and I showed it to my husband and he shook his head b/c Kim wrote a comment on a post it note so that I could reuse the card and he said, "You guys are such dorks," to which I replied, "I know, I found my people and I love it."

life happens coffee helps

Playing along with this week's Mojo Monday sketch, b/c it's only been how many days since I made a coffee card?  16 (but who's counting?).  Love this Verve set...  I'm in the market for the best white embossing powder, I thought this one would be more white...  anyone have their suggestion on the best option?

birthday wishes

Playing along with the latest Muse Challenge, inspired by Jenni's card.  Her card has a bit of texture on the base, so I went for my fabulous pile of upcycled letterpress paper (don't tell the bride, but it's a wedding invitation my cousin-in-law gifted me from her place of employment).  I added a PTI flower and sentiment and kept it simple.

wine fixes everything

Happy Monday!!!  It's time for another PTI Blog Hop and this month Nichole has challenged us to use the art above by Chad Hagen for inspiration.  I think you can see how my brain worked.... colors, circles... and why not wine!  I loved getting a shout out to our campground beer-wine-coffee-whatever mug over on Instagram over the weekend, those are the fun things that make me smile, click here.  Wishing everyone a great week, can't wait to see folks' inspiration.

wishing you rainbows & sunshine

Playing along with the current Fusion Card Challenge, who can resist a fun rainbow umbrella?  I stamped the Unity stamp and then added a PTI sentiment.  I just shared my latest rainbow photo over on Instagram, but you can see more of my latest rainbow, sunshine and definitely umbrellas adventure over on the Outside Inn's blog.

happy mother's day card

Inspired By All the Little Things, yeah for Lynn being their guestie, so I used the Little Tangles stamp, some water colors, a long neglected pad of Core'dinations and a little piece of May Arts ribbon for this card.  The card also works for the current Simon Says Stamps challenge, "Make it Girlie".  Below, a preview from the super fun (and very wet) Instagram meet up last night, thanks to my friend Lenka for snapping this picture of me.  I'll have photos up on the Outside Inn's blog later today.

feel better

Happy Tuesday crafty peeps!  I wanted to play along with the new Muse Challenge to support Tracey.  And I've got a few fun video clips of our campground, here's the latest (you saw it here first!).  Wishing you all a fabulous day, my get well card wasn't inspired by anyone under the weather, but the font, so it'll go in the stash for an opportunity, thankfully everyone is currently healthy.

just a note to say happy hello and more

Happy Monday, who's got a fun week ahead of them?  I'm hosting an Instameet in my town on Friday, anyone want to join?  Back to my crafty agenda... the first card is for the new PTI Make It Monday, faux brush lettering, what a great tip!  I went for super simple, used a WMS sentiment and framed it with two other PTI sentiment, added a sliver of PTI patterned paper and called it good.

This card was just for fun....

And this card is for the current CAS(E) this sketch, I used the Reverse Confetti die plate, PTI sentiment and flower, a scrap of glitter paper, vellum, SRM sticker and some water colors.  Now if only I could motivate to send the birthday cards...  wishing you all a great week.

{thank you for you}

This week's PTI Challenge was Create with Us and while I didn't find inspiration Monday morning like I had hoped (but did take that window of time and go photograph the beautiful morning fog).  So I was appreciative of Karen's card yesterday with her inspiration, so I CASEd her card from Lizzie's inspiration, did you follow that?  I don't usually work in a very linear fashion....

leave a little sparkle

It's time for another Tag You're It Challenge and this time we've got a fun card from Carol to inspire you.  I went for a tag, adding the misting and stencil to the colored tag.  I was looking for something else and rediscovered this Hero Arts butterfly, love the detail on the wings.  My sentiment is from PTI, May Arts ribbon, PTI sentcil and tag.  I'd love to see how the challenge inspires you.
