Flutter Bug

Hi Everyone,

I am back again this week to share a card I made using the new stamp, "Flutter Bug", from Digital Doodles. For inspiration for this card, I just set out a bunch of my favorite embellishments and papers on my working desk and decided to see how they would all come together.  I usually come up with a concept in my head before I begin working, but I was challenged by another blogger to pull out various supplies and see what happens. I kind of enjoyed the freedom to explore different concepts and not to feel worried about sticking with the plan in my head. It was kind of a fun challenge, and I think I will try to make more cards this way in the future :)  If you are interested in purchasing the cute Flutter Bug stamp go HERE.  

Thanks for dropping by today :)

Graphic 45

I am just popping in real quickly to share. Right now I am in the process of moving and everything is in complete chaos, so I won't have any new projects to share this week. But believe me, I am dying to get back to paper crafting. For the time being, I am having fun surfing the net and finding my next must-have supplies. This new collection from Graphic 45 just blew me away with it's beautiful vintage Alice in Wonderland themed paper. Lately, I have really been interested in more vintage style papers and embellishments. I can't wait to get my hands on this collection. I thought I would share it with all of you. It's called Halloween in Wonderland and it is so fabulous!  
I love the vintage feel of this pattern along with the beautiful drawings.

This newsprint pattern will work just perfectly for tags and cards.

I just love the beautiful colors and the detail in the artwork on this one.  That keyhole in the center is just the perfect touch!

Garden Card

Hi Everyone,
It is a beautiful day here in California! The sun is shining and the birds are chirping. I just love days like these, when everything is bright and glistening from the sun.  It is just a reminder that at the end of each dark road, there is a hope of a bright and happy day.  I hope you are all enjoying the weather wherever you are today.  I have a beautiful card to share with all of you that celebrates the joys and hopes of summer time.  I used the beautiful new stamp called "Garden Mouse" from Digital Doodles. It is such a fun stamp and reminds me of gardening in the summer time.  It is just the cutest stamp!  I decided to add some sunflowers to my card, because they are just the quintessential summer flower :) I finished my card  with some fun paper from October Afternoon.  You can purchase the "Garden Mouse" stamp here. I wish you all a beautiful and lovely day.

Dealing with Life

Hi Everyone,
I thought I would pop on in to explain why I have been MIA lately. I have been dealing with a serious family medical emergency. I have been struggling to stay positive in the face of the biggest challenge of my life.  This is really not the place for me to share all that I am facing, but it is difficult for me and has been a challenge for me to find solace in crafting and being creative lately. I know that this too will pass, and I will feel better soon. I am just praying for God's strength and love to carry me through. I just hope that you can all understand. I will continue to post as frequently as possible on my blog :) I do love sharing ideas and projects with all of you :)
Now on to my crafty share for today.....

I created this card for a teen girl's high school graduation. I used some older paper that I had lying around from my graduation scrapbook and I created some swirly flowers.  Thanks for stopping by today. I wish you all a healthy and happy weekend :)

Happy Bird Day Stamp

Hi Everyone,
Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I have been feeling a little under the weather and haven't felt much like breaking out my paper and creating.  But this week, I am feeling much better and I am ready to get back to crafting.  I have several projects that I am working on this week, so pop on by during the week and you might see something new :) Now for the crafty share of the day........

Here is a card I made using the new digital doodles stamp, Happy Bird-Day.  This is actually a birthday card that I created for my grandma.  She wanted me to make a card so that she could send it to my Great Aunt Rachel for her birthday.  I didn't realize, until later, that I colored the bird's hat like a santa hat (lol). Oh well! I guess I am ready to celebrate Christmas early this year :) Hope you are all having a fun week! Thanks for stopping by :)
