Doodled Baby

Today I am playing with some Paper Smooches, this is an older set, but still one of my favorites. Today is Day 21 of the 30 day coloring challenge at The Daily Marker. I am also entering this one at Less is More where the challenge is to CASE a DT member. I decided to CASE Anne because I loved her doodled border.

You Amaze Me

Happy Monday!
Today's card share is for Day 20 for the 30 day coloring challenge at The Daily Marker and Online Card Classes Day 7 of Stretch Your Dies. This is a technique shown by Kathy Racoosin and I loved it, it's a subtle, but yet dynamic way to use your dies. The stamp I used is Pleasant Poppies, I stamp it with versa fine black ink and watercolored it with Koi watercolors. For the YOU, I used the Die-namics By The Letter from MFT Stamps. The greeting is from the set Crazy About You from Stampin Up

Playing Catch Up From A Busy Weekend

My weekend was busy but it was super FUN, It started with leaving early Saturday morning for a IKEA trip with friends and not returning home until late Saturday night , of course since we were in Denver, we hit several other stores as well, including the Container Store. Sunday after church I was on the road again to Denver, this time with the Hubs for a steak dinner and a phenomenal, epic concert (an early birthday gift) put on by Garth Brooks and his lovely bride Trisha Yearwood. We did not get back home until after midnight, so that left me with little crafting time, so I will be playing catch up on the 30 day coloring challenge at The Daily Marker and for my Online card Class, stretch your dies. This card is for Day 19 of the coloring challenge. I actually colored it yesterday before I left, just didn't  put the card together of get a post ready until today.
I used a new release from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Mini Flower Blocks 2 and an older companion set to it Flower Blocks 2.

Springtime Melodies

Happy Sunday! 
It's Finally here, I am going to see Garth Brooks in concert tonight, but I thought I would share a card first.  Today i am playing with some CAS-ual Fridays stamps. I love how Michele designs her stamps where you can use them all year long. This set is a Valentines set but I used it to create a Springtime Melody card for the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.
I loved this weeks sketch at Freshly Made Sketches
so I decided to use it again, along with my scraps from Fridays card

30 day Coloring Challenge - Day 16

Late night card for Day 16 of the coloring challenge at The Daily Marker. This is also for Day 4 of the online card class I am taking Stretch Your Dies.  Today's focus was mini dies and Jennifer Rzasa taught how to make a background out of them. I loved her card, so I made something similar. I used the mini party hats from Lil Inker and the Mini Balloons from Avery Elle. I started with Watercolor paper and Tim Holtz distress inks and ended up with this ombre look. The greeting is from a SU set, From The Herd.
