Hi Everyone! 
Today I am sharing a card using Pink & Main stamps.
I used the stamp that is *FREE* with a $30 purchase 
for this month.

Isn't he (or she maybe?) just a cutie?
I stamped the background with the key, 
lock and heart from the set.
I colored that cute raccoon with copic markers and popped him up on a heart die cut over a strip of ribbon. I used a sketch for the current scrapbook.com February card 
sketch challenge.


After that I added some red stickles, Wink of Stella clear glitter and glossy accents.
I added this panel to a red card base.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Have a wonderful day!

Hi Everyone! 
This month the Trendy Twine Design Team is featuring Krafty Red Trendy Twine and Metal Rim tags. The tags are available in 3 sizes - Petite, Regular and Biggie.

I decided to try out some heart string art for my card. 
I recently saw this inspiration and made my own pattern.
I added a bow with a Metal Rim Kraft tag- Petite size, I added the sentiment with some red ink. Then I added a sentiment to the bottom of the panel and added some doodles around the edge. I rounded the corners on the panel and card base. Then I popped up the panel with some foam tape and added it to the card base.



I made another card using a similar pattern with a smaller heart and I stamped the sentiment inside the heart shape.
I also rounded all the corners and added faux stitching.

Hi Everyone!
Today starts a new challenge over at 
The theme is Love!!
So let's see all your love projects!! 

Here is my card using the new 
"True Love stamp set and Love die set."





 For my card, I used the negative cut from the Love die.
I put some of the teal dots paper behind it and popped it up with some foam tape. Then I added the sentiment to the front panel. Next, I added some punched hearts and sequins to finish the card off. I wanted to make the card clean and simple, so that I can give it to a guy if needed.

Hi Everyone!
Today I am sharing some cards 
for Pink & Main Stamps.
For my cards, I used the new Easter Peeps to make some fun square cards. These can still fit into an standard A2 envelope because they measure 4.25 x 4.25 inches.
I made 4 cards using each little chick from this set.


For my cards, I followed a card sketch featured this month on a Scrapbook.com challenge.


I decided to make the cute chicks the focal point of each card.
I stamped them out then colored them using Copic Markers.
Then I added some accents with stickles, Wink of Stella, glossy accents and a white gel pen.

Hi Everyone!
Today I am sharing a card using the new "Hello Sweet" stamp set from the January Pink & Main Release.

Hello Sweet





I made a shaker card with a purple theme. 



How fun is that Twine lollipop? My best friend, Stacey made that for me and I've been waiting for the perfect project 
to use it. I just love it! 
This card was fairly simple to put together. I wanted the sentiment to be the star. The font is just gorgeous! 
I started by cutting my frame with two stitched rectangle dies then cut a piece of standard vellum to fit. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments. I filled the shaker portion with several different sequins, regular, hearts and stars.
I added a few to the outside of the shaker portion to embellish. Then I added my fun lollipop to accent the sentiment. This is all attached to a pre-made card 
base from Pebbles.

Hi Everyone! 
I'm back today to share a card for a 
few challenges going on right now.
The first one is the current 

Aren't those colors so fun??

The next challenge is the current My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge #264.

Awesome sketch, right?

Here is my take on the sketch using The Whole Herd again!
I just love this set, can you tell?? :)



Love that super cute little pig 
and how fun is that sentiment??
This card was pretty easy to put together. I stamped and colored the pig with copic markers then I cut the patterned paper and die cut a circle window to fit the pig. 
I heat embossed the sentiment in white and added some natural twine. Then I finished the card 
with some white faux stitching.
Thank you so much for stopping by today 
and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Hi Everyone!
Happy Hump day! 
Today I am sharing a card I made for one 
of the current card sketch challenges over at
Scrapbook.com for January.


Here is my take on the sketch using some of the 


First, I heat embossed the sentiment and the background (the snowflakes) then I took some scraps from the kit that I had from previous cards and adhered those down in the pattern.
Next, I added some snowflakes, also in the kit, with a few clear rhinestones.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!!

Hi Everyone! 
Yesterday I saw several cards from my crafty friends using the current My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch 263. So I thought it would be fun to play along. 
The challenge ends today at Noon EST. 
Nothing like last minute huh?! 

Update: I posted this just a tad bit too late.

Here is the sketch:

I had a few of these cute chicks stamped out on my desk from yesterday's Card Harmony project so I thought these would be fun to use. Of course, from The Whole Herd 
from My Favorite Things.



The cute mama Chicken and her chicks were stamped with MFT Hybrid Black Licorice ink and colored with copic markers. The background of the card is a Chicken Wire stamp from Peachy Keen stamps that is no longer available. I sponged the card base and chicken panel with Vintage Photo distress ink. Then I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment in white. 

Everyone knows I love my chickens, all 19 of them!! 
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day!

Hi Everyone!! 
Today I am sharing a project for 
the Trendy Twine design team.
I am sharing some DIY Pocket Scrapbooking (Project Life style) cards using several of Annie's Paper Boutique Planner stamps. I made three cards, two of the "Weekend" one because I thought it would also work perfectly in my MAMBI Happy planner.





I took the Stitched Journal die (Lawn Fawn) and for my cards but first I added the borders, using the Speech bubble border die (Lawn Fawn) and the Stitched Borders 1 die (Pretty Pink Posh), then I added some stamping to each card using the stamp sets. I heat embossed the "Today I'm Feeling" with white embossing powder to make it pop on the Melon Mambo cardstock. I used the Check It Off set for the lines, 'To Do List' and Notes. Then added some Totally White Trendy Twine with a bow for a little decoration and a strip of washi tape on the other cards. I think these will be perfect to journal on or just as filler cards and to punch and add to a planner.
