almost summer!


summer's almost here! i went back to another beachy scene for today's card. i guess i'm ready for sandy toes and sunshine 😏

I used the Neat & Tangled Beach day set and a lot of masking for this card. (and I'm kind of sad that I couldn't squeeze the little hippo eating watermelon on it!)

have a lovely day!

stained glass flowers


I have a pretty floral card today using the Altenew Recollections stamp set and it turned out so pretty!
I stamped the floral arch on vellum in versamark ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder and I colored the backside of the vellum with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and it looks like pretty stained glass! (it looks even prettier when you hold it up to the light, I almost just wanted to tape it to my window and not even put it on a card!)

fabulous ladies


I have another beachy card today for the 30 day coloring challenge.

I love love love these ladies from Art Impressions and it was so fun to finally get around to coloring them! (although cutting out their masks took almost as long as the coloring did!)

flamingo beach!


I'm back in my studio making cards again after a long break dedicated to printing some of my insane project life backlog.

I'm participating in the 30 day coloring challenge again and this card is also for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge (#29)

I'm on a bit of a beachy theme kick this week.

Loving all of the pictures from the inspiration board, summer here we come! Bree has about 9 days left of pre-k until summer break starts and I'm so excited 😍

anyways, that's it from me today, have a great weekend!

Make it Monday #312

Hi there!

I have a card for this week's Make It Monday challenge today. The challenge this week was to frame a sentiment and I decided it was well past time to finally use my Cloche Quarters stamps and I love love love them! 

I used one of the bunnies and the grass border from the Simply Spring Borders set with my eggs and daffodils from the cloche quarters: spring fillers set to make my sweet little Easter arrangement and I think it turned out so cute! The centers of the daffodils show up a bit better in person, they look kind of washed out in the picture.

I'm so looking forward to this next week going by because we get to go back to Disney World next Friday night! It's one of my favorite times of year to go because the Flower and Garden festival at Epcot is so pretty and I'm longing for Spring. We've had a few daffodils open up here at home but that's it for new spring growth so far!

bicycle built for two


I have another bright card today in celebration of this Spring weather we've got going on today 😍

That's me and Jeff! (even though me dressing in a purple polka dot dress and hopping on the back of a bicycle doesn't seem remotely likely in this lifetime) I'm super excited about how his hair turned out, I'm calling this my best attempt yet at coloring black hair!

It was warm enough today that Emma and I got to go to the zoo. without any jackets!

Jeff and I had entertained the idea of not taking the stroller with us when we go to Disney World at the end of next week but one hour at the zoo with Emma and no stroller definitely made me reconsider that idea. She just wants to sit down in the middle of the sidewalk all the time. She doesn't want to walk, doesn't want to be carried, she just wants to sit. So she can sit in the stroller and we'll just pack less stuff so it can all fit in the car :)

hello sunshine!


I have a card today that's been in progress for months! I colored and cut out this hello two 30 day coloring challenges ago and then put it aside and it's been staring at me every time i walk in my studio so I'm happy to finally have it on a card and put away :)

My green turned out too yellowish  but other than that I think it's a fun rainbow blend. I really like substituting pink for red and teal for blue sometimes in my rainbows ♥

I'm deep in my happy place of spring deep cleaning and organizing/purging right now. The only problem with that is that I'm already a pretty organized person so I really have to look for spaces to clean out and organize. Yesterday I went through all of Bree and Em's clothes, sold some of them, donated others, and then packed up anything that Em will eventually wear. Then I went through my charger cords bin, my files, washi tapes and sewing drawer. I could go through the cabinet in the bathroom and a shelf in the garage, and then I think I'm kind of out of places to organize. sigh.
