Life is better in flip flops



I have been in a beachy mood lately.
I guess it's because our vacation
was cancelled because of the virus.
I am living through my stamps and
wishing I could jump into these card.  lol



The stamps are all from Papertrey Ink and
the Crimped frame die is from The Greetery.

I started with the fun flip flops and
built the scene around them.
I love flip flops!

Today Is Going To Be Jawsome

We have a grandson who loves everything sea creatures.
Last year, I made a card with a whale on it.
This year, My Favorite Things new June release
had this adorable Baby Shark die.


I wanted to make it look like he was bursting through the water.
I hope that is what you see.

I used a stencil set from PTI called Sun & Surf
and Distress Oxide inks in
Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean,
Peacock Feathers & Blueprint Sketch
to make the water.

Sending Monster Sized Birthday Wishes


I love these sweet monsters!
They are so happy and ready to party.


This is a CASE of Joy Taylor's card.
I thought the design was perfect.
I changed some of the colors, the placement of the monsters,
and the sentiment.

The stamps and patterned paper are all
from My Favorite Things.

Hope Your Birthday is Epic


This is for one of our grandsons
who loves to play Fortnite.
I thought he would get a kick out of the
game controller.


This is a very simple card using two stamp sets
from My Favorite Things.
I used the Level Up set sentiments to
create the background and sentiment, and
the Game Controller die for the controller.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy Anniversary

I adore the Cherry Blossoms in the new
Budding Beauties Spring set from
The Greetery.
Don't they just scream Spring!



I used Sketchbook Roses to create the background,
Just Mason Around for the lovely layered jar, and
Budding Beauties Spring for the Cherry Blossoms.
I had a lemon and blossom from the
Lemon Blossom set that I added to the base of the jar, and
the sentiment is from the Sentiment Suite Spring set.
All sets are from The Greetery.
