Congratulations SC133

This week we have a sketch for inspiration:


Here is my take:



One of my talented crafty friends (Kimberly, former SC DT member) brought this make and take to our last crafty day.  Isn’t it pretty!  That watercolor background really softens up the edges of the heart and to me makes it look like it’s floating.


Thank you for stopping by and I can’t wait to see what you create!



Happy Birthday Amy!


I’m lucky enough to get to craft with some very sweet talented friends on a regular basis and let me tell you it is awesome, they are all very inspirational to me.  Today we are celebrating Amy’s birthday!  Amy is one of those special people in the world that everyone loves being around.  She is always smiling and laughing.  She is kind and supportive.  She doesn’t sleep much and comments on lots and lots (and lots) of blog posts which makes everyone whose blog she visits happy. I am very blessed to call her my friend.

We are taking Amy on an amazing trip around the world to see some of her favorite things!  While I should have thought of colombia for a nice cup of coffee but I thought of the next best thing which was to take her to one of my favorite places to visit which is Florida.  I have only been a few times but fell in love and it is never far from my mind.  It has a lovely climate and surrounded by water I don’t think paradise could be better than warm sand and the ocean.  It is also the only place in the country where you can see the beautiful flamingo in the wild!

I was inspired for the card by a pin I came across by the very talented Vanessa Menhorn.

You should have arrived here from Kate’s blog your next stop is the fabulous Vicki! 


Amy, wishing you a super happy birthday and a fabulous year ahead, surrounded by family and friends with lots of love and laughter!  

Thoughtful Things You Do SC132

This week we have a these pretty photos for inspiration:

Here is my take:



I totally CASED the pamphlet that was in the Paper Pumpkin kit last month!  This card took less than 10 mins to make once I decided what to make.  I love the colors and layers in this set.  If you are looking for quick cards to make that look like they took a lot of time check out the monthly Paper Pumpkin kits as they come with everything you need to make beautiful cards and home decor!


Thank you for stopping by and I can’t wait to see what you create!
