I Have Missed You All

 Hello my sweet friends!  

I have missed you all. I have missed the friendships. I have missed the inspiration. I have missed the support. Make no mistake, I have been seeing everyone's beautiful creations around social media, and it has kept me in the loop.  I never really stope creating, but it was definitely on a low scale and mainly for Christmas and birthdays.  

The world's current events have left me with a lot of time that needs filled.  I have been working from home since the second week of March and I spent my spare time during the growing season, outside working in the yard.  When it turned cold I was desperately searching for something to take that space.  Enter me familiarizing myself again with the passion I once had for creating.

I am loving all of my new stamps, dies, and ink pads from Pink Fresh Studio.  This beautiful set is called the Daisy Wreath Layered Set. I played around yesterday with various color combos and this was the first one that made it into a full card creation.  I am absolutely addicted to this background stamp and I am sure you will be seeing it a lot.  

I look forward to reacquainting myself with you all again.  I can assure you that I am much better at posting on my Instagram regularly, than I am with blogging.  There you will see other bits of my life and passions, such as gardening and houseplants.  I have nearly 100 houseplants!!  

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Framed Flowers

Hello and Happy Saturday.  I made this card for the PTI Make It Monday challenge and posted it on Instagram, a few days back.  Unfortunately I am just now getting a chance to post this on my blog.  I used an assortment of frame dies as well as stamps from Gran's Garden as well as Farmer's Market Florals from Papertrey Ink.  

I wish I had more time in my day to craft and post, but that never seems to happen.  I stay connected to the stamping community through Instagram and post regularly there.  If you'd like, you can follow me there.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Flowers and Valentines

Hello again!  I have been so horrible about posting on a regular basis, as I've been sporadic about crafting.  We had weeks of really cold weather and all I wanted to do was crochet and watch tv on my day off.  Gone are the days when I stayed home with my son and would craft whenever I felt like it.  I work full time, have an elderly client I care for on Sunday, and try and make it to the gym 4-5 days a week after I get off work.  That really only leaves me with Saturdays, which I usually go to the gym on that day as well, weather permitting.  Needless to say that my card-making has gone by the wayside.   

Here are a few cards I made over the last month.  A couple Valentine's and a Best Wishes card for my work bestie that is leaving and going to another job.  As soon as I'm done typing this out, I am going to create some more.  Stay tuned!!  

All cards were created using Papertrey Ink cardstock, ink, Stamps, and coordinating dies.

Wishing You A Quick Recovery

Good afternoon!  I have a couple cards to share with you that I made for some of my coworkers, that are having surgery.  I used the same basic design, just varied the stamps.  

 The above card background was stamped using an MFT background stamp and PTI Lavender Moon ink.  The flowers were stamped in Lavender Moon, Lilac Grace, and Melon Berry, while the leaves were stamped in Spring Moss.  Cardstock is Spring Moss and Stamper's Select White.

The card below was made using Lavender Moon and Lilac Grace cardstock.  I stamped the sweet butterflies from Butterfly Dreams in matching ink on the Lavender Moon and Background Basics is stamped on the Lilac Grace in the matching PTI ink.  The Darling Butterfly is stamped in Lavender Moon and Melon Berry with added Stickles for some glitter.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

We Love Dawn Blog Hop

I've been using PTI stamps nearly as long as I've been blogging  and making cards.  They were the very first company that I ordered stamps from.  When they posted a Blog Hop for Dawn, one of their long time stamp designers/DT members who just had a much needed transplant, I decided that I wanted to make a card to send and show my support.

This card was made using Garden Party, one of my favorite floral sets designed by Dawn.

Sweet Butterflies

Hello, and Happy Friday!!  I don't know about where you are at, but the temps has significantly dropped and its been in the 30's for highs and teens for lows.  Brr!  I made this Thanks card last weekend but have yet to have time to post it.  I didn't make this for any particular reason other than wanting to have more thank you cards on hand.

The photo below is most true to color, the top photo has a bit of yellow cast to it.  As I have mentioned before in previous posts, I like to stamp backgrounds ahead of time.  I have a small basket sitting on my desk with background stamped patterns.  The sweet little butterflies were stamped using PTI's retired set called Butterfly Dreams.  For the life of me I can't think f the name of the set with the little polka dots.

Quick Birthday Card

Hey!  It's Friday and we've had some snow flurries!  I am not ready for snow.  Heck, the trees just started turning for fall, now its snowing.  Ugh!  I do in home care for seniors during summer breaks and on Sunday's.  I have an elderly lady that I have been working with since last June, and her birthday was yesterday.  She loves her coffee, so I thought this was fitting.

I used all scraps for this card, expect for the die cut coffee cup and label.

I am entering this into the Seize the Birthday.

Have a great weekend!
