Butterfly Hugs

Hi Angels!

Another quick card tonight inspired by the bits & pieces on my worktop. Today & tomorrow busy errand days.

I did grab my new Simon Says Stamp Pinpoint Starlets 3D embossing folder to add some interest to the background but everything was pre-cut or pre-stamped from previous projects.

I hope you have a blessed day tomorrow!

Let’s Celebrate Slimline

Hi Angels!

I hope your 4th of July has been blessed with celebrating our freedom, family & friends!

A quick card tonight from the infamous Bit’s & Pieces box. I had tried this background from StencilGirl for another project & it didn’t quite fit so grabbed it & it’s matching layer to create tonight’s card.

I used a scrap of the handpainted backgrounds from last Monday’s class for the sentiment which is a retired My Favorite Things Die-namics. A few sequins & it’s ready to bring a smile to someone.

Have a Fabulous Week!

Gloriously 60 Day 54 – Nature’s Hello

Hi Angels!

I think I’ve finally got through the side effects of my knee shot & the knee seems to calming down, Yay!

Since I had a couple of errands today & we couldn’t miss the new episode of The Chosen tonight, I dug into the infamous Bits & Pieces box for today’s card.

Most of these die cuts have been hanging out in the box for about 3-4 years and when inspiration strikes made this great card. I cut the hello about a week ago to try for another card, it was too small & has been hanging out on my desk. Sometimes a little bit of this & that come together just right.

Tomorrow I get to tidy up the studio as the granddaughters get to hang out Friday. Hopefully they will enjoy coloring & painting or just hanging out to play.

Gloriously 60 Day 50 Art – Keep Smiling

Hi Angels!

Spent part of the day working/planning some home projects and finishing my Father’s Day cards, which I will start sharing tomorrow.

For tonight’s card I dug into the infamous Bits & Pieces box.

A fun butterfly card and a reminder to keep smiling & sharing joy throughout each day. What the camera & the light box capture is always interesting. In real life the sequins aren’t quite that bright blue but in the reflection of the light & lens they seem to stand out more.

Have a Blessed Father’s Day Sunday!

Gloriously 60 Day 43 Art – Sweet Flowers

Hi Angels!

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend! We had lovely sunshine after a quick storm rolled through in the wee hours of the morning.

Today’s card features some leftovers from my desk before they reached the infamous Bits & Pieces box.

I’m in the process of cleaning up my worktops so it made sense to create some from the bits of recent cards & a scrap from the patterned paper file.

This card is sweet & simple & will make someone smile. The best kind of card to make.

Gloriously 60 Day 42 Art – Adventure

Hi Angels!

It’s been a long but fun day as I had the granddaughters today. So I dove into the infamous Bits & Pieces box & the scraps for tonight’s card.

This neutral design is great for the guys. The train was leftover from a class last year using Whimsy Stamps Enjoy the Journey set & the sentiment if from Unity Stamp Co Scout Adventure set.

Off to get some rest.

Have a Fabulous Saturday!

Gloriously 60 Day 34 Art – Purple Birthday

Hi Angels!

I was finally able to catch up with a few things today after our trip including some much needed rest.

I dug into the infamous Bits & Pieces box to create today’s card.

I watched a couple of short art videos & one inspired me to dig into my Bits & Pieces box. Everything was already pre-cut, I just added a hint of stenciling to the white oval to give it a little more pizzazz. Fast & easy.

I’m hoping to spend a bit more time creating tomorrow. Hubby is still home on vacation so sometimes what I plan doesn’t match up with what he plans.

Have a Fabulous Weekend!

Gloriously 60 Day 15 Art – Birthday Wishes

Hi Angels!

Some days depending on the projects I am working on, it’s a grab what’s on your desk or the infamous Bits & Pieces box to create. Today it’s what was on my desk from another project.

This card took about 15 minutes to put together.

I probably don’t play with patterned paper as much as I should and this Dandelion Dreams paper from Creative Expressions is just beautiful. I’m glad I ordered extra with the Simon Says Dandelion Messages kit.

I used Unity Stamp Co. Say It Big Sentiments dies with the SSS Dandelion Die from the card kit and an older die for the wishes. To add a bit more sparkle, I dotted an outline around the dandelion with a Star Dust Gelly Roll pen.

Thanks for stopping in!

Gloriously 60 Day 7 Art – Dandelion Joy

Hi Angels!

A quick card tonight as we are enjoying a visit with the granddaughters.

I used the Sizzix Dandelion Wish 3-D embossing folder with a scrap of handmade background and a sentiment from the infamous Bits & Pieces box.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend especially if you are celebrating Mother’s Day.

Thanks for stopping in.

Dragonfly Scrap Delight

Hi Angels!

I had to make myself stop creating or I could have easily pulled an all-nighter as I was in the zone on one of my projects.

I did take a few minutes, scrounged up some scraps and made this quick card.

The background is an extra from several years ago when I shared my ink pad swirl technique. The borders are small thin scraps from other projects with watercolor backgrounds and even the dragonflies are punched from a similar scrap. I just die cut the sentiment & put it all together.

I hope your weekend has been wonderful!
