You Make Me Happy, Ellie


Hi friends! I finally got some time today to play with some new goodies and at the top of my list was this Ellie stamp and die set from Avery Elle. I had also recently picked up two new Distress Markers: Cracked Pistachio and Abandoned Coral so I new some watercoloring was in order! I added in some Pumice Stone for Miss Ellie and her bunny friend, topped it all off with some Hello Sunshine 6x6 papers from Pink Paislee and the fantastic Stitched Duo 3 die from Pretty Pink Posh and finished up in time to play along in the latest Avery Elle Challenge. I hope you like it!


Also linking this up to the super fun The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge, which I've been so enjoying!

Fun With You - Lawnscaping Challenge #102


It's Monday morning - time for another Lawnscaping Challenge! This time we're all about Distress, and I decided to get down and dirty with mine! Lots of distressed edges and inking and even muddy pawprints! 


I used Lawn Fawn's Critters At The Dog Park for my pup, paw prints, and bones and a sentiment from Love You S'More. I hope you enjoy it. Huge thanks to Lawn Fawn for sponsoring us with a FREE stamp set of the winner's choice!


Please head on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog to check out the other amazing cards the design team has created. And don't forget to link up your own distressed projects and play along!

Card Collab with Kari of KWCardDesign


Hey friends! Happy Saturday! Today I've got something extra fun to share with you. My dear friend Kari of KWCardDesign and I decided to do a collaboration video and it was SO MUCH FUN! I love collabs because they're like a little mini challenge to see what each person's take will be on an idea. 


For our collab, I got to pick the stamp set we would use and Kari chose the color palette. I chose Lawn Fawn's Gleeful Gardens because it was my favorite full-sized set from the new release and I'd been dying to use it! And isn't the color palette Kari picked out just gorgeous! It looks like spring candy colors to me. 

I hope you enjoy the video! Click on the YouTube icon at the lower right corner to watch there in HD. Please don't forget to like, comment, and subscribe! At the end of the video, and in the description bar, I'll have a direct link to Kari's video as well, so be sure to check that out and subscribe to her channel if you haven't already. She's an amazing crafter and the sweetest person! I'm so grateful to call her friend.

Guesting With TAWS Part 2


A blessed Sunday morning to you! Today I'm doing my second guest stint of the month over at The Alley Way Stamps. For this round I was given the set Mustache Mania. Masculine cards can be a struggle to create, but this set made it so easy. So easy, in fact, that I needed an additional challenge. So I decided to see if I could make two very different cards using the same supplies. Stamps, card stock, patterned paper, everything.



I think I succeeded! Please hop on over to The Alley Way Stamps blog and leave them a comment letting them know if you enjoyed my projects! I hope you have a fantastic day!
