Tag You're It #91 - REMINDER

There is still time to play along at Tag You're It for Challenge #91 - Summer Fruit!
You have until July 17th at 9:00 am EST to submit your tags!

I used my Queen & Company Fruit Basket Shaker Kit for my tag. I have been wanting to make a pink grapefruit shaker for a long time and I love the little pink grapefruit fillers that come with the kit! My background for the tag was created by blending Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks. The cute pink grapefruit shakers were made with the kit ingredients. The yellow and pink patterned papers from the Fruit Basket 6" x 6" paper pad have pictures of tiny citrus slices on them--so cute!


Have a great weekend!

Hello Friend

Hi there and Happy Friday!


I have a post up on the Birch Press Design blog today. I had some fun using alcohol ink to create a fun background for one of the mandalas. Hope you head over to have a closer look and see what I did to create this card.

Rainbow Birthday

Have you had a chance yet to check out the Avery Elle Rainbows stamp and die set?
It was so popular when it released it sold out everywhere the first day!

I was able to get it when it came back in stock and I received it the day I went in for my surgery, so it had to go into the pile of things to play with once I recovered.  I am almost there, each day I am getting better and hopefully before long I will be doing all the things I was able to do before I broke my collarbone almost 2 years ago.

In the meantime my baby girl turned 22 and I knew I had to create a card for her with this set. So over the course of many days, a bit at a time I made this card for her. I would totally recommend this set, it's so much fun and there are so many options for different designs you can make with it. I have linked to this genius stamp set and the die below with my affiliate link that you can use at no cost to you.



Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Watercoloured Daisies

I have a card up on the Jillian Vance Design blog today!

Today I made a simple card with watercoloured daisies from the Daisy Die Set. I placed them over a watercoloured Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop panel. I finished it off with a birthday sentiment from the Delightful Sentiments stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Summer Fun - June 2019

It's the last day of May and time for this month's 12 Kit of Occasions post! Birgit from Crafting While I Wait was is our hostess this month and what a fabulous summer fun filled kit she sent to each of us! This is the first time I have created since I had my surgery. One of the great things about the 12 Kits it that when we each receive our packages most of the stamping and cutting is already done. So with the help of my lovely daughter for some of the muscle work I was able to put four cards together to post today!





All of my cards together!


Don't forget to pop over the the team blog The 12 Kits of Occasions to see what the rest of the fabulous team has done and follow the hop to be inspired!

Sympathy Vine


  Hi there and Happy Tuesday!
I'm popping in today with a card for Jillian Vance Design for my regular Tuesday post.

I blended a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with two shades of green Distress Oxide inks, splattered the panel with some clean water and set it aside to dry. Once dry I cut the Swirly Vine die from the panel. Another panel was cut using the largest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dot Backdrop set and the 'with sympathy' sentiment from the Bold Butterfly stamp set was stamped on to it. The panel was adhered to the card base with foam tape. Finally I used the new Jillian Vance Design Just Glue It glue pen to add glue to the back of the main stem of the vine and adhered it to the panel leaving some of the leaves and swirls loose for added interest.


Hope to see you visit over at Jillian Vance Design!
