Dream Big



A very dear friend of mine's daughter just committed to Wittenberg University for volleyball. She's going into her junior year of high school next year.  Of course, I'm so pleased for her so I had to give her a card along with a small gift to congratulate her.  This Verve stamp set was sitting out on my desk...and the card very quickly came together.  The school colors are red and white...thus the red butterfly.  I'm entering this over at CASologyhttp://casology.blogspot.com where the current challenge is congratulations.

I had intended to stamp more this weekend, but instead went on a major cleaning and purging spree in my craft room. I have tons of stamps and dies for sale on my For Sale page. Take a look if you're interested! I also spent time watching the Olympic trials...I love watching the Olympics and look forward to happening.

Curtain Call Reminder: Thanks


It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge! I had so much fun playing along with this challenge I had to make another card.  These pineapples are from Concord and 9th. I love their stamps and this set is no exception. The sweet little flowers that go with them are perfect.  


Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!

Thanks a Bunch



I mentioned Saturday that I had time to play along with some challenges. I also cleaned up my crafting space a bit and found this Altenew flower I stamped on my stamping weekend back in February along with the twine that came with some new stamps.  So...it was the perfect time to play along with the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge:  Thanks Twine.  I love a good, clean, crisp thank you card and my stash needs several more of these!

Just for You



Happy Saturday my friends. I'm enjoying a very lazy Saturday.  The perfect day in my book after lots of graduation celebrations for Ryan and his friends. Pat is out of town at the US Open with his brothers and dad celebrating his brother's 50th birthday.  They have gorgeous weather for going.  It's the mid 80s and simply glorious.

So I had some time to look around at the challenges and play along.  This card is for Virginia's View Challenge. Loved getting my Zig markers out for this card.  You have to check out Virginia's incredible sample cards. Her stamping and use of color is impeccable!
