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.

Camp Create Shaker

Hi friend, friend, friend! I need to post all my cards from the MFT Camp Create. I have one last one to finish up to do all five days and it's been so fun!  This card is for the first day's challenge to make a shaker card. This die is the only MFT word die I have, so I worked with that I had. :) I think it turned out fun and cheery. 

It has been so hot here today. I had to run a few errands and came home just exhausted from the heat. My poor garden is a garden of weeds at this point because it's just too hot to be out there. I try here and there, but they grow so fast. We have had a lot of amazing butterflies lately though, so at least the flowers are being visited. 

Have a great weekend. Do something fun and crafty!

Camp Create: Watercoloring

 Oops. I am behind on blogging all my crafts. It's been a bit crazy the past two weeks. I did get a card made every day in July though. :) It was a miracle. lol  Now I'm playing along with the MFT Camp Create challenges. The second one is watercoloring and I tried. It's hard for me, but I powered through it. I love the little bears in the Cool Day stamp set. I had to use the big snowflake die I recently got as I love it. 

I bought a size 2 round brush before I tried to color my image and it works much better for me to have a small brush. I may actually try it more often. I used my distress inks and just smooshed them on my silicone mat to get some ink to color with. 

I hope you're having a great week.
