i have new trees…

I ordered a new stamp set from Close To My Heart a few weeks back and it has been sitting on my table very patiently waiting to be used.  I finally broke that out and created this cute little card this morning. I love these little treetops.  It is such a versatile set.  I decided to use the 2 sketches 4 you sketch this week.  I kept this one pretty clean, as I usually do.  I used up some scraps as well.  I went through my pile and found the blue cardstock had already been ran through my swiss dots …

Mojo Monday #89

Time for another Mojo Monday sketch.  I bought a new set of K & Company paper and figured it was about time to break the seal and use it.  I think the paper is very fitting for summertime. This was actually a pretty quick card and used minimal supplies.  Just some patterned paper, a few punches and a stamp.  Then added some bling to the butterfly and tied a little floss to the flower patterned paper. For those of you wondering about the buckets in the background… they are for our dogs!  My husband was giving them a good scrub …

Sweet Sunday Sketch #20

So, I have been working on finding my mojo.  It is really annoying when you just can’t seem to find the time or the motivation to sit down and create.  Last night I just needed to do something.  So I turned to one of my favorite bloggers, Karen Girdon, for a sketch challenge… Sweet Sunday Sketch #20.  She has some of the greatest sketches and they fit my style so well. So here he is… my little owl is back!  Gotta turn to the old favorites when you wanna get your mojo back.  He is just so darn adorable, how …

Color Inspiration #53

So my first attempt at a challenge this week led me to Kristina’s Color Inspiration #53.  These are really bold colors and make me step outside of my box.  As I tend to do, I went to my stash of patterned paper to see if I could get some sort of direction for this card. Luckily, I found a Die Cuts With a View stack with the red and yellow patterned paper, plus solid blue cardstock to match.  The bird is also cut out from some paper in the same stack.  I used some Sakura Glaze pens to add a …

Oh deers…

A few weeks back, I did a challenge and used the cutest little deer.  Well, he is back with his momma.  I think they are so darn cute I just want to pinch ’em.  Reminds me a little of Bambi. This is for the CPS sketch challenge #116.  I decided to go very simple with this one and let the deers shine.  I like how the pattern paper doesn’t overwhelm them.  And I found a perfect shade of teal for the butterfly and a matching chipboard bird for the accent.  Most of the supplies came from the Colorbox Friendly Forest …
