head outdoors and more...

Happy Friday crafty peeps....  A couple of cards... I was inspired by the MFT sketch with this CAS card using MFT dies.  My second two cards are for the Creative Blueprints... but I'm just now re-reading the challenge- I used the dies and the directional elements... but I didn't use the blueprints sketches... oops.  And my final card is for the CAS(E) this sketch using all Hero Arts goodies..

Hope Your Day is Bursting with Joy

Hello crafty peeps.  Finding inspiration online...  the top card is for the new Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights, the pink tree caught my attention.  I used an Ellen Hutson sentiment, PTI tree stamp and MFT die.  My second card is for the CASology challenge, "sorry" being the theme.  I love the tiny sentiment and little heart on the big white canvas.

gone glamping

Happy Wednesday crafty peeps!  I'm back with a new card for the new MFT Sketch Challenge...  more camping themed goodies.  We're hosting a Girl Camper weekend at the campground this weekend and I want to make a few more....    Are any of you crafty ladies interested in camping?  I'm trying to come up a giveaway for my Instagram account...  open to ideas and suggestions.

you make ME a happy camper

Playing along with the SugarPea Designs sketch, using the SugarPea tent die (and PTI dies and a Hero Arts sentiment).  The card below-- I thought the PTI challenge this week was going to be to CASE one of the new release cards (it wasn't), but I made this card below from inspiration here.  And my final card is playing along with the Viva la Verve sketch and the new fall leaves set.

Happy Halloween

Today's PTI Make It Monday is build a wreath and truth be known, I probably never would've made this card without that challenge...  too many layers?  Too many small pieces?  But-- the short answer, is that I kinda like the card.  I used a super vintage PTI set for the circle and pumpkin stamp, PTI Mat Stack dies (which I should dust off more often), a banner (I think it's Reverse Confetti), a happy die I got at Michael's (no brand name attached to it), May Arts ribbon, Lil Inker woodgain die on the card stock and a Waltzingmouse sentiment.  So hoping today is less eventful than last Monday!  The weather here is so beautiful-- fall is one of my favorite seasons.  You can see a few more fall colors on my motel and campground Instagram feeds.

you make me a happy camper and more!

Hello campers...  still feeling the aftermath of all the fires in California, my heart goes out to so many people.  We had a number of folks at the campground this weekend who were seeking better air, so even those who didn't lose their homes are being affected.  Here are a few cards I've made to make myself feel better.  The top card uses the sketch from Fusion Card Challenge.  The second card is for the Muse Challenge and I took a hint from Tracey and combined Altenew and Ellen Hutson for her Mix it up Challenge.  And the third card uses the current Reverse Confetti Sketch.

Always remember....

Happy Friday crafty friends.  This week has been so stressful in California, and while my house and and family are fine, the effects of the wildfires reaches far and wide to so many people.  I had three employees evacuated from their homes this week, friends who had their loved ones lose everything in the Santa Rosa fires, friends who have been sheltering animals, air quality issues.  So this tag, inspired by the new Tag You're It Challenge, is to remind all of us that hopefully these traumatic experiences will make us stronger...  We can only hope, right?   And since I've mentioned that I make cards to channel what I'm thinking about, the card below is another card for the current Where Creativity Meets C9 and CAS(E) this Sketch for my friend who had breast cancer surgery yesterday.

And one final card, because camping/glamping consumes a lot of my life at the moment.  I used the MFT Sketch Challenge.

# adventure begins

I'm not sure what I think of this card to be honest....  I used the new MFT Sketch Challenge as my inspiration, a recycled National Park map, MFT dies, PTI patterned paper and an Altenew sentiment.
