Happy Little Stampers Sketch - August 2015

Hello....You are going to love this month's sketch at Happy Little Stampers, it is so fun, like a party on a card with the streamers zig zagging across the card.  As soon as I saw the streamers I thought to use this fabulous stamp set from SSS, Build a Snowman and it is a NBUS. I love those strands of lights and colored them with my new Ziggies (I stole Joyce's name for the Zig Clean Color pens), they were so much fun to play with. I hope you will find the time to play along with us, I always love seeing your amazing cards.

The 12 Kits of Occasions - July Edition

It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year....I know it is only July 31st but there is no time like the present (no pun intended) to get a head start on your holiday cards started! Cathy from Empty Nest Crafter is our incredible hostess this month and WOW....what a kit, it was really like Christmas in July! So many wonderful little goodies and I will be honest with you, I am hoarding some of the supplies, they are just so amazing I could not bring myself to use them and then no longer have them 
to look at. 

I do love Christmas and always celebrate in July too and made this sweet little canning jar mug into a gift for a dear friend. When I saw the wonderful straws Cathy included in our kit I had to find a use for at least one of them.

Be sure to check out our 12 Kits blog and to take a peek at all the wonderful holiday creations. Cathy has invited Lisa from My Paper Tales to be our guest this month. Lisa is so incredibly talented and what an honor it is to have her with us this month. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy your weekend.

Muse #126

Hello again...just a quick post with my Muse #126 card. I love Tracey's sweet penguin card and had to play along. I pulled out my trusty Lawn Fawn Winter Penguin and tucked his wee skates behind my little island. I was quick and easy to make and I used my new stencil from Memory Box called Waves. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy your week!

 Tracey's inspiration card...

I had to share this sweet little personalized label with you. My sweet sister had these made just for me and all the way from France too!!!  I just have to fold them over and stitch them in the seams. I tell you I have the sweetest sister on the planet!!!! I can't wait to make something and share what it looks like and will be sure to share.
