Owl You Doin? with Sweet Stamp Shop

Happy Memorial Day!

We are back from vacation and we had a great time!! It is always good to get back to our routine though... so it is good to be home.

We have spent the last few days working on our garage. It is like the project that just won't end! :) I had hoped to be done with it before we left for vacation but that just didn't work out. I think by the end of the day.... we will be mostly done other than a few odds and ends that we can work on later. The main thing we have been trying to do is get everything back in and organized that we had put into a storage unit. We don't want to pay another month for storage! As I type this post... we have one more load to bring over so I hope we will be done with it pretty early and can enjoy the rest of Memorial Day! I have been washing everything as it goes back in... our garage has never been so uncluttered and clean! I love it!

On to the card..... this card is on the Sweet Stamp Shop blog today!

I used the set called Melvin and Vernie.... super cute...

You can find all of the Sweet Stamp Shop stamps here in the store.

Well... that is all for me today! I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day!

Peace and Love!

I've Been Thinking with Avocado Arts

Today the Avocado Arts Pit Crew are sharing creations using a sneak peek of the June set called Let's Catch Up!

I used the current set also on my card. It is called Thoughts and Smiles. I love this set! So much fun to play with!

My card is super simple... I just stamped the images from Thoughts and Smiles and the sentiment from Let's Catch Up onto my card base. I rounded the corners and inked the edges with distress ink. I applied buttons to the flower centers and then adhered pearls to the buttons for extra dimension.

You can visit the Avocado Arts site here to check out all of the fabby AA sets... and to read up on joining the kit club... here.

Make sure to hop along with the rest of the crew for more inspiration!

Paper Crafts Magazine Presents: Card Creations Vol. 10 Blog Hop

Happy Friday!!

Today I have the privilege of participating in a celebratory blog hop in honor of Card Creations. This volume is volume number 10... Happy 10th Birthday CC!! You have been good to me the past few years! :) Thank you!

In keeping with the 10 theme of the party... I decided that today I would show 10 projects that were not accepted into the pages of a Paper Crafts magazine! The magazine is the ultimate goal but hey... a Paper Crafts blog hop is the next best thing, right? :)

All of my projects are holiday theme since those have been the recent calls. I know it is spring but I felt like it was still fitting to show holiday projects since Card Creations covers so many holidays and themes! Plus... if you have known me long enough... you have heard me say on more that one occasion that I don't like holding projects in folders on my computer for six months until I can post them... it bugs me! :) Win win!!

Soooo.... Lets get started....

Paper Crafts has generously offered to let us give away a copy of Card Creations Volume 10. Make sure to leave me a comment to be in the running! You have until Tuesday, May 15th at 6pm CST (on my blog) to comment to win. I will post the winner soon after!

Don't forget to hop along for more inspiration and chances to win!

Peace and Love!

You Make Me Smile with Avocado Arts

Happy Monday!!

Today a few of the Pit Crew get to share projects using the May kit from Avocado Arts. The kit is called Thoughts and Smiles and it is one of my favs so far!

Check out the kit and the digi cut files...

If you aren't familiar with Avocado Arts... you can go here to learn how to join the kit club. Of you can just go here to shop!

My card was super easy... just stamping and a little paper piecing of the tag image. I used the hanger for the frame... as a hanger for my tag... on the frame. I love that so many of the pieces in these kits are separate... lots more creative freedom!

Make sure the check out these other ladies... they are so creative!!

Eat More Cake

Just popping in real quick to say "HELLO"!!

I hope you are having a great week so far!

This month is really really really busy for our family so I plan to schedule my 'work' (if you can call it that) posts in the next day or so ... for the month. I am not sure that I will be around a ton in between.

I am hoping that things will settle down some in June!

I am working on my Project Life and will share that at some point... I am loving it!!

Today's card is one that I made a very long time ago. You can tell by the fact that I took the photo of it outside. I don't have the actual card in hand so I can't retake it in my light box.

Have a great day!!

Peace and Love!
