Balloons! {Unity Thursday}

Hi friends! I am posting a card today I made with the KOTM Hey Girl and my Tim Holtz Distress Markers. LOVE this stamp so, so much!
I wanted to keep the card super simple, so the only added element is a Simon Says Stamp die cut balloon stamped with a Unity sentiment. 

And that's all today, folks! Be sure to keep hopping along, you know prizes are involved!


Sending pawesome mail

Morning, folks! I wanted to post a card here super duper quick that I made the other night...just for fun! Yep, just for fun. Love doing that.
I am LOVING my Simon Says Stamp card kits! They are awesome and I've been consistently happy with each one I get. I combined last month's with the new puppy and pawesome die to create this card.

I hope you are having a fabulous day! I'm back at noon with my Unity post, too.

Lil' Inker Designs July Release: Day 3

It's always sad when this release comes to an end, but it definitely won't be the last time I reach for these new products by any means! Of course, I had to make a dream catcher with these amazing new feathers.
I watercolored the feathers and created the dream catcher ring with the Stitched Circles, placed down together on the cutting plate. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment onto vellum to create a soft look.

These are the Lil' Inker products I used for this card:

10 years. Always have, always will.

Rarely do I get personal or mushy on my blog. Usually, I keep it strictly craft-related. Not today!

Today, I am celebrating 10 years of marriage with my amazing husband. He has been my rock, my motivator and my support. He has stuck by me literally through better or worse. We have shared so many laughs, tears, hard times, arguments and memories. I love him dearly, and look forward to the next 70 (or so) years of wedded bliss with him.

Here is the card I made for him. Our wedding colors were royal blue and white, so I thought it would be fun to use blue flowers.

Celebrate Gold.

Hi there, friends! I wanted to share I card I made a while back using some awesome Lil' Inker products. So easy and fun to whip up. You know me and gold....
I watercolored the frame and heat embossed the side of the card as well as the flower and sentiment. I sure do love this stitched quilted cover up die! 

Have a fab day.

Wish big unicorn.

Ohhhhh how I adore this stamp and die set from Paper Smooches. Squeeeee! I knew I had to have this as soon as it released a few months ago. My daughter loves My Little Pony and I have reached for this set so many times for her little friend's birthdays. This card is no exception, it is headed to a sweet girl in Kansas for her birthday!



I am entering this card into the Paper Smooches Challenge.  Yayness!
