Just Because ~ Make it Monday

Happy Fri-yay everyone!  Yes, I've adopted the Fri-yay!  Is it out?  Am I dating myself?  Nonetheless, it's my favourite day and I'll celebrate it old school or new school or any school! HA!  Popping in with a card I made for PTI's Make it Monday challenge, make a shadowed sentiment.  Easy enough!  I'm CASEing an older card from Laurie Schmidlin that I fell in love with last year.  I just love the embossed gold on top of the leaves.

 Be Still and Know by Laurie Schmidlin -

 Yes, I did make a second card...actually, I made 6 more!  Two in this colour (Limeade Ice), two in bermuda bay (SU), and 2 in raspberry fizz :)  They all look great with the embossing.  Hope you are enjoying your Fri-yay!  Yippee!

It's Your Birthday! PTI Blog Hop

Hello friends!  I am back creating for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop after missing it last month.  We had a house full of family and fun and there was just no inky time to spare.  Not to worry, though...there is always THIS month! My card was inspired by all the fun colours and party hats.  I was tickled to find this patterned paper in my stash and went for it!

AND...yes, expect second card!  Never one without two :)  I only had one party hat sheet so I went for a cupcake one :)

Thanks for popping by!  I can't wait to see all the yummy cards you all come up with!

Thanks ~ Create Along with Us

Hi friends!  I fell in love with Laurie's pink sensation and HAD to CASE it for PTI's Create Along with Us challenge

 Laurie - Warm Regards

AND because I need to make two cards at once, I made it in blue as well :)  I didn't have any of the stamps or dies that Laurie used, so I used what I had on hand.  I made my own little frame with a stitched rectangle die and the scalloped oval die from PTI.  The frame looked a little flat to me so I embossed it with a delicate folder.

 Thanks for stopping by!

Be Mine ~ Make it Monday

Hello friends!  Popping in to share my take on this week's PTI Make it Monday.  Melissa is challenging us to create an embossed background with a stencil.  I'm using Reverse Confetti's heart stencil and some heat and emboss powder along with some prisma glitter.  The "Be Mine" sentiment is from the all-time great "Heart Prints" set.  It's still a winner!  Thanks for stopping by :)

New Year's Mantra ~ Viva La Verve

Happy New Year, friends!  I have been AOL these past few weeks... just enjoying a house full of company, then cleaning, then reading, then having lazy mornings.  However, I am now taking some time to warm up the studio and start creating.  I found my one word for the new year, "calm."  I thought this sentiment from Verve's Winter Peace Digi was perfect to express my new mantra for 2018.  I'm using a brand new Viva La Verve sketch and some more Verve goodies to create the first card of 2018!  Head over to the Viva La Verve blog and play along this month!  Thanks for stopping by!

What's in it?
stamps: Winter Peace DIGITAL Set, Beyond Measure (Verve)
dies: Falling Leaves Die Set, Christmas Spirit Die Set(Verve)

Here are some quotes I've pinned for this year's mantra...

“The LORD your God is in your midst; he is a warrior who can deliver. He takes great delight in you; he renews you by his love; he shouts for joy over you.”” ‭‭Zephaniah‬ ‭3:17‬ ‭NET‬‬

 A clutter free life and home. Simplify. Declutter. Clutter attracts clutter. Simple living. Less is more.

Oh yes...

 The mind is like water. When it's turbulent, it's difficult to see. When it's calm, everything becomes clear.

 Don't you just love words that evoke calmness, serenity, and relaxation?

Birthday Wishes ~ Make it Monday

I am always thrilled when we get to replay PTI's Make it Monday challenges at the end of the year (or in this case, the beginning!).  I fell in love with Betsy's water colour stencil background card (challenge #282)  so much that I bought the stencil she used just because of her card.  I did my best to CASE her card and then made another one with different colours and a snowflake theme. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope your week is going well!
