MFT Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge # 376


Good morning! Hope you had a great weekend now that the days are getting longer and spring is getting closer!

I have  a card I made for a dear friend who lost her fur baby recently. When we let a pet into our hearts they become a part of our family and the loss we feel when we lose them is profound. I made a card using this week's MFT Stamps Wednesday Sketch #376.


Have a wonderful week, come on spring!

My Weekend Stamping Away

A few weekends ago I went to a crafting retreat and made a record 17 cards! For me that is big, usually on retreats and crafty get together's I am too busy being social and don't come home with much of anything done--lol! Over the past week and the week's to come I am going to share some of these projects. A lot of them were from shoebox swaps, they are so much fun. Basically each person participating designs a card and then puts all the supplies to make that card into a box. Then over the course of the retreat you take a box and recreate the card! We had so many participants this time and what fantastic designs too.  Here are a few that I did, designs created by these super talented friends!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Jillibean Soup Designer's Challenge

This month the designers at Jillibean Soup were challenged to create cards to celebrate the arrival of spring with flowers!

As easy task says me, because Jillibean Soup has some of the most beautiful flower die cuts with their releases and it makes making floral cards not only easy but beautiful too.

Spring to me is new beginnings meaning the arrival of flowers, the sounds of the birds and people moving into new homes. I brought out the Shape Shaker Heart Tag and the Heart Birdhouse stamp and die set to create this sweet tag you could use to adorn a gift to a new neighbour. Quick, easy and cute!


Head over to the Jillibean Soup Bean Talk blog to see what some of the other designers have done this month.

Muse #257


It's time for Muse Challenge #257!

I used the beautiful Pretty Pink Posh Wild Rose, Hummingbird Thanks and Birdie Friends stamps and dies to create my scene and then coloured the images with ZIG Clean Color Real  Brush markers.


Hope to see you play along with us this week at Muse!

Winnie & Walter ReRun | Welcome to the Family


So excited today to be guesting with Winnie & Walter for this month's Rerun post!

This month the team is featuring Welcome to the Family with Evelin T Designs! This adorable set is full of the cutest images for many occasions. My card is a congratulations card for a new baby using purple as the anchor colour because it can be for either a boy or a girl. I stamped and die cut the little elephant from the set and Copic coloured it. The background circle behind the elephant was stamped using A Tree for all Seasons using Hero Arts Ombre Meadow ink.


Here is a second card I made, once again colours that could be for either a boy or a girl...


The Rerun posts are to provide new inspiration using the featured set along with a challenge through the end of the month, a sale on the featured item for the entire month and one random commentor on the blog post at Winnie & Walter will win the stamp set! Make sure you head over to the Winnie & Walter blog for your chances to win!
