You're Cherry Sweet - except for Google

Good day - cripes, I was almost locked out of my blog.....gotta love google.

The current sketch at Reverse Confetti and the beautiful colours at Color Throwdown were my focus today for my card - sketches and colours - thank you for making this card an easy one!

I stamped and diecut using the cute stamp set from Reverse Confetti - In a Jam - along with the matching Confetti Cuts.

Using the sketch and colours I assembled my card and stamped the sentiment along the bottom - that is from Fancy Word Coordinates.

Short post today - Google has me frazzled!

Thank you for visiting today - I'm off to clean up the yard so we can head south in a couple of weeks - dang winter is coming yikes!

Sweet Treats!

Good Morning!  The Card Concept has a couple of days left to enter a creation for their challenge - so I was up for the game!

Look at this delicious-ness!

I just love Suzy Plantamura's watercolour sheets so I pulled an image from the Suzy's Birthday Notes group and, using my Zig Real Brush Markers, I watercolored to my hearts content!

This just happened to be my grandson's birthday card too - all yummy and fun!

I backed it onto some Papertrey Ink patterned paper and then added a few clear baubles for fun!

Thanks for coming around and check out The Card Concept won't you?!

A Fond Farewell

This is my last official week of designing for Cas-ual Fridays Stamps.  I have been so fortunate to be a part of this amazing company - I am truly thankful to Michele and our fabulous team!!

It is bittersweet that I am stepping down - we winter in Florida and I just don't take the time to stamp as much as I do at home where my permanent stamping area is located.  There is just too much to do with hubby!

I put together a watercolored thank you to mark the occasion using the leaves from Pretty Posies.

I stamped the leaves with Versamark ink onto white watercolour cardstock and then embossed them with white embossing powder.

Using my Zig Real Brush markers, I watercolored the leaves using various shades of green, pink, and yellow.

After it dried - you really have to wait for it to dry completely. completely. completely - I diecut a stitched rectangle from the watercolored leaves.  I popped that up onto a panel of Mint Julep Swiss Dot patterned paper which was adhered to my card base.

I fussy cut a flag  and popped it up onto the front and added a strip of the patterned paper.  I diecut the sentiment from white cardstock and adhered it to the flag.  I finished it off by adding a few Sparkly Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!

There is another Cas-ual Fridays release coming up soon - so stay tuned!!

I'm entering this card into the Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog which has a Totally Resistable theme this week!

Blessed by Flowers!

There is a new challenge in town and it is called The Flower Challenge - disbelief - these are my most favourite things!  There is a new theme every week but flowers are the must!

The beginning challenge is Anything Goes - how simple right?!

I used Reverse Confetti products for my floral creation today.

I diecut the pretty new Lacy Scallop Frame Confetti Cuts from white cardstock and using the largest frame, adhered it to my white card base.

I stamped a few of the blooms from Blooms 'N Buds and placed them in what I think is a pleasing manner. Do you ever really know?  I am such a symmetrical person that when I go all willy-nilly my brain pretty much explodes.

Using the Grateful, Thankful, Blessed Confetti Cuts, I diecut with patterned paper and then trimmed the word 'Blessed' so I could use it individually.

After adhering the sentiment, I embellished with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins!

Check out this beautiful new challenge using flowers - you will love it!!

What is Nature(ally) Done in Love!

Inspired by All the Little Things has a beautiful back to nature inspiration photo....Love it!

I immediately thought of my Paper Clippings - Done in Love die from Papertrey Ink - perfect!

Here is the inspiration photo:

and here is my take on this fun challenge!

I love everything about this card - I die cut the main image from Papertrey Ink patterned paper - Don't Forget to Write Refill paper - it all comes out in one beautiful piece!  

I adhered it to a piece of wood plank patterned paper using Tombow adhesive - just a dot here and a dot there. Nothing is easier than this!

I added a little bit of ribbon and more paper clippings to the top of the card, attached with a clothespin - more natural-ness is good!

Go on over and link up your naturally fabulous creation!!
