[1.31.2016] Assemble This! Sketch No. 1

Assemble This! Sketch No. 1 Hi!  So, I’m kinda excited about something.  For my long-time visitors, do you remember Wanna Sketch?  It has been on hiatus for quite a while… a year to be exact.  Well, I’m ready to play with sketches again!!!  They have been kinda absent from my crafty process this last year and I’ve come to realize how much I miss them and really love that part of my creative process.  So, I’m bringing them back, in a different way. I’d like to introduce you to Assemble This! Sketch!  I’m going to combine my two faves, a sketch, …

[2.9.2015] sweet elle

Sweet Elle There is just something about a little elephant that makes my heart smile.  Young and old souls alike would appreciate receiving this little birthday cutie.  I think I have mentioned I have a hard time with cards for the little tikes.  But I think sweet elle will help me out tremendously.  And this simple design is perfect for bulking up my stock of cards. This little elle is watercolored with paints.  I stamped first, then watercolored, dried completely (with the aid of my hairdryer) and then die cut the shape.  I finally found my crochet yarn, geez, that …

[1.8.2015] unity thursday – pitcher us together

Unity Thursday Time for some more THURSDAY fun with the Unity design team.  If you haven’t been hopping along, all the action starts on the Unity blog.  There’s always fun stuff going on. I’m sharing a tag I’ve created using the current stamp of the week. Sooooo cute!  I can’t help be a little bias towards this week’s stamp, it is my little design.  Nothing better than a pitcher of beer with my hubs.  I thought it would make for a cute little stamp.  Now, this could be a pitcher of anything really… beer, sangria, lemonade, kool-aid.  Your pitcher can …

[11.17.2014] wanna sketch no. 22

Wanna Sketch no. 22 Wow, November is more than half over.  Yikes!  If you are like me, your remaining weeks in this beautiful 2014 are jam packed and filled with TONS of plans, celebrations, good food, chores, shopping, crafting and drinking.  Not in any particular order.  Ha.  ‘Tis the season. I have a feeling I’ll be sharing a Christmas card using this sketch in the next couple weeks.  I have an idea brewing.  But for today’s kick off, I have a very springy type card (surprisingly).  It is not quite fall or winter in Arizona.  It is how it goes, …

[9.29.2014] happy national coffee day!!!

Coffee and stamps… Two of my favorite combinations.  Throw a doughnut in and you have totally made my day.  I’m excited to join in on a HUGE and fabulous blog hop today.  Some sweet crafty friends have engineered this event for the love of coffee and stamps.  All the details can be found at Chaitali’s blog.  I’m just one of many, so going to try to keep this short and sweet. I’m using some Unity Stamp Company stamps this week.  The coffee stamp I’m using is the Coffee Side by Side itty bitty. Plus a few others mixed in. My …
