MFT Color Challenge 231

Howdy strangers. Believe it or not, I'm still here. I haven't made a card in ages, but I'm here. :)  My goal is to try and get back into crafting this year. I don't know what happened (life, maybe?) to cause me to stop, but I do miss it. I saw the cutest card my friend Lee had made for the MFT Color Challenge and thought it would be a fun challenge to jump back into. I don't have the best picture to post since I have torn my craft room up to paint, so I had to snap one with my phone and send it over. 

I hope anyone who will see this is doing well. Take care.

Lawn Fawnatics 109

 Hi friends! Are you enjoying the first week of autumn? It's been cooler here in Texas, so we have been loving it. Anything below 90 degrees feels amazing. lol I wanted to play along with a challenge and use some of my fall stamps, so I decided to finally ink up my cute apple set from Lawn Fawn for their Lawn Fawnatics challenge. I decided to go with a clean and simple card to let the red of the apples pop. 

That's it for me. I'm a Jeopardy fanatic and strangely it comes on in the morning in Texas. I gotta go get my laundry folded to get ready. 

Have a great rest of the week!

MFT Witch


Hi friends! I wanted to pop in real quick and post my entry for the MFT Design Superstar Coloring contest. I feel a bit foolish posting it now that I've seen some of the other entries, but I did try, so... 

I love the MFT watercolor stencil. It makes for such a fun background. I used some of the colors from my witch to to stencil that and then layered my images on top. This witch is my absolute favorite image to color, so I had a blast sitting and coloring. 

Things are okay here. I've been having a lot of sinus headaches lately and struggling with that. We got a cold front in last night and it's a wonderful 70 degrees this morning. I hope my head appreciates that. Have a great week.

MFT Cool Day Colors


Hi friends! Just wanted to pop in and share my card for the current MFT color challenge. I've been playing around with my gel press a bit this week thanks to the Gelli Arts ABCs of gel printing. My background is one of my prints from earlier this week. :) 

I hope you are having a good weekend. I know it's a sad one for our country here in the US on the 20th anniversary of 9-11. <3 I just don't have the words, but I know none of us will ever forget where we were that day or all the lives lost.

Cardstock Class

Hey all! I thought I'd pop in and show you some of the cards I've been making for the newest class from Online Card Classes. It is called Crushing on Cardstock and it's been super fun. There's so much packed into the four days of class. It's been so fun!! 

Things here are about the same. This week has been a mentally challenging one. Hopefully I can get myself together a bit better. I have been walking at least 30 minutes every night for the past month. I've tried to make that a part of my day that just has to happen. I think I've lost 7 pounds so yay! It's about time for my walk right now, so I'll sign off and go suit up. lol

(Andrea, I swear I saw your email and keep meaning to reply. I am not good at life, but don't give up on me. lol I'm a mess.)

Lawn Fawnatics 106

 Hi, friends. I hope your week went well. Can you believe it's the weekend already? Wow! I don't know where the week went, but it's been so hot all week that I think we just sweated our way through the days. I'm so over summer, especially now that I've started walking every evening. I end up a sweaty mess. Anyway, I wanted to share my card for the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge. They had a sketch challenge and I decided to play along I love this cute little camper set. 

Have a great weekend!

Camp Create 4/5


I am running so behind!!  I finished Camp Create days ago and need to share the last two with you today so that I can enter them. :) My first card is for day 4, Background Bonanza. I love how it turned out. I wasn't sure at first if it was going to look okay, but once I saw my finished card I loved the effect. Of course I love coloring this image. :) 

Now on to the last one, Delightful Die Cutting. 

And my last one! The sample for the challenge was a cute wreath, but I didn't have any foliage dies to make anything like that. I did have these cute sunflower dies though and I decided to use them for a my card. I put them again a simple background I made using distress inks. Simple but I like it. It's cheery and happy. 

And that's a wrap! :) I hope you are having a good week.

Embossed Roses

 Happy Saturday, folks! Back to share another card from MFT Camp Create. This is day three, emboss resist. and I used one of MFT's awesome background stamps. I used my distress inks in oranges and yellows and then diecut my friend sentiment again. Pretty easy card. :) I love the effect of emboss resist though. It's so fun. 

I have two more cards I'll share with you from this event. The next one is my favorite of the group.
