Text Me!! Part 2

EDITED TO ADD THESE TWO!  I made two more cards for Jingle Belles Rock!! 


used scraps for all, stamped sentiment is Stampin Up Alphabet Soup.  Homemade dots and buttons from stash!  That's three for the week!  I'm on a roll!  Can't wait to see what the pile looks like in December!

Text me!

This week's prompt at Jingle Belles is "text me!"  Simply put, use some text!   Letter stickers, dictionary pages, word patterned paper or just have your sentiment be the star!  My entry uses a recycled Christmas card and some "texty" paper!


Thanks for taking a look!  Hoping to make another this week......

Love you more than cupcakes!

When hubby goes out of town, I get to craft more often!!  I've made several cards so far this week, and more to come!


Submitting this for a "Kraft/Birthday" Challenge at Unity Show & Tell FB page.  I used this stamp for their last challenge....not realizing that I would be using it again!  It was already inked and sitting out on my craft desk, so what the hey!  It's a great stamp!

I'm also entering it into the MFT Sketch Challenge for this week.  Although it's another brand, I love their sketches and use them as a go to for most cards I make!  Love their sketches!

Here is the sketch for reference:


Thanks for looking!

Three Kings JB:18:02

Another Christmas Card for jingle belles!  This week's challenge is called "Three Kings."  Which of course references the three wise men visiting the baby Jesus, but in this case it's to include something in multiples of three on your card! 


Lots of scraps used on this one!  I used the Stampin Up Petite Petals punch to create the poinsettias.  The twine and stamped sentiment are from Bella Creationz  and everything else is stash/scraps!  

Thanks for visiting!

Happy New Year 2018! JB:18:01.

Happy New Year 2018!  I'm embarking on another challenge to myself to get organized!  I've subscribed to jingle belles and their challenge to make at least one Christmas/Holiday card each week to have a stash by next Christmas!  Here's to week one! 

My MIL gifted me some washi tape and sparkly cording.  These cards use all of those!  I didn't care for the gold and silver together so I made two!  One for Christmas giving and one for Hanukkah giving!  Thanks for looking!


gold stars are from Bella Creationz, cream stars punched from cardstock.  Stamped sentiments are from Unity Stamp Co.

thanks for visiting!

Tiddly Inks DT Call Time!!

It's that time again.....Tiddly Inks DT Call time!!  I'm throwing my hat in the ring!!  I love Tiddly Inks images!  They are fun and whimsical and so awesome to color!


The image I used I found through a Pinterest search.  I think it was a freebie way back in the day (2013).  She's called Wryn-Blooms.  Hope it's still an eligible image to use because I absolutely *love* this sweet girl!  I also found this awesome sketch on Pinterest!


Pinterest is a crafter's best friend!  If you get stuck or in a rut, just do a quick search to get those creative juices flowing again! 

Without further delay, here she is!!  I love how it turned out and the colors just pop!  I used a watercolor technique with my Tombow Art Markers to color her.  The stripped paper is from My Minds Eye Happy Day.  All else is from scraps!  I will also be entering this little lovely into the current challenge.....make it rectangle!




Thanks Tiddly Inks for the opportunity to be apart of an amazing company!  Fingers crossed!
