Finally . . . some cards!

Hello Everyone,

Sorry this blog has been so quiet lately . . . work and kid activities have kept me busy!  I am trying to get back to blogging and have some projects to show you from the past few months . . . .

To begin--I made some card sets for my kids' teachers for Christmas.  It was a 4 card set using Summer Fresh from Simple Stories and Lawn Fawn stamps.  I found some great inspiration on Pinterest!  So I listed the Lawn Fawn stamp sets and the link back from Pinterest as to where I found the inspiration.

Card #1:  Feel Better

Stamps Used:  On the Mend (Lawn Fawn)

Card #2:  You're Awesome

Stamps Used:  So Much to Say, Sharp Backdrops

Card #3:  It's Your Birthday

Stamps Used:  Year Three

Card #4:  Thank You

Stamps Used:  Friendship Grows

So glad you could stop by today!  Have a great weekend, and I hope to post again soon!

Newton's Nook Designs--Inky Paws Challenge #6

Hi Everyone!

Sorry this post is so long in coming . . . first there was back to school . . . then came Halloween, then Thanksgiving, and of course Christmas--it has been such a busy time in our household!  Now we are in 2014  and I am hoping to get back into posting a card or project a little more often.

So let's start off with this card I made for the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #6--a color challenge.  I found this patterned paper in my stash from We R Memory Keepers that coordinated so well, and then added in a few sequins (my new favorite embellishment :).)  So here is my card:

Loves Mew!
Stamps:  Newton's Antics (NND)
Ink:  Memento
Patterned Paper:  We R Memory Keepers
Cardstock:  Ocean Tides, Harvest Gold (PTI); 110 lb White (Michaels)
Misc.:  Copics, Sequins

I also wanted to share with you a picture of my little helper assisting with some ribbon:

Thanks so much for stopping by--have a wonderful weekend!
