wine a little...

My fabulous friend Lynn sent me the SugarPea Designs stamp set about coffee... so I used the fabulous Adulting is hard sentiment and turned it into a wine card!  I used the Sugar Pea Mix It Up sketch as a source of inspiration, added a MFT sentiment, Reverse Confetti wine glass and some MFT wonky dies.

a trio of cards

Playing along with a few challenges... the first card and second card uses the CAS(E) this sketch for the inspiration.  The first card also uses the Ellen Hutson Mix It Up Challenge, combine Ellen Hutson and Reverse Confetti goodies.  And my third card was inspired by the MFT Sketch Challenge-- we got new marshmallow flavors at the campground... YUM!!!

Tag You're It Challenge

Welcome back to another Tag You're It Challenge, this month we've got a fun spring tag by Lindsay to help get the creative juices flowing.  I'd love to see how you're inspired to play along.

Starting with this challenge, #71, Tag You're It is moving to a monthly format. That means that you will have at least four weeks to participate!

You will still be getting lots of inspiration from our team, every Friday to be exact. The big change here is that the entire Tag You're It Design Team will be participating with every challenge to inspire you. We hope that by having a longer time to complete your projects that you can find more time to create--even more than once if you like! Our Guest Designer will be sharing inspiration with you on the 1st and 3rd week of the challenge.

The new challenge will start on the first Friday of the month and the link up will close on the last Wednesday of the month. The winners post will always be one  hour prior to the new challenge each month.

Camping Cards

Playing along with this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge to use sentiments in the background.  I  used the Technique Tuesday sentiment in two different PTI ink colors and some PTI dies to create this card.  I had another sentiment, but it got too busy for me....  And my second card is another take on the MFT sketch (I turned it upside down) with the new Sweet Stamp Shop sentiment (perfect!).  My project combines MFT dies, PTI dies and Simon Says dies.  The camp store at the Inn Town Campground is going to have a great collection....  I love that Lynn spotted some cards last week on my Instagam story, probably a good enough reason to update the photos of the store.

I couldn't resist the new Sweet Stamp Shop Motorhome set... I own a campground, it made perfect sense to me....  Happy Sunday, better get back to work.

wishing you happiness and more

I teach a monthly card class and every month (no joke) I leave the planning and the prepping to the last month, so on Tuesday evening my girlfriend came over and we picked a few cards to make-- and go figure, I couldn't find the original card, so I made another one.  

And finally.... thinking about camping cards and using the MFT Sketch as my inspiration.  I've used a Flora and Fauna VW die, Papertry Ink dies, MFT die, PTI water color paper and a Lil Inkers die.

Adventure fun....

Happy Tuesday crafty peeps.  I tried to get my normal Monday PTI Make It Monday agenda yesterday, but I had a big work project that took up that window and before I knew it the day was over...  So my first card uses the Watercolor Wash background idea...  I stamped a bunch of different PTI sentiments on this piece of craft card stock and then used watercolors over it.  I kinda like the more vibrant look of Laurie's projects, something else to try.  My card also uses a MFT die, PTI tree die, Flora and Fauna caravan die... can you spy the sentiment I accidentally did upside down?

Playing along again with the CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

And the Mojo Monday sketch, truthfully this card isn't my favorite, but I'm always intrigued on how to add all the pieces for the sketch while staying true to my CAS style-- so it's a good challenge.

flora and fauna adventure cards

You know those enabling friends of yours that find you the perfect stamps sets?  Thanks Jen for the help on buying more stamps!  Flora and Fauna just came out with a camping set-- for the girl who owns a campground, I just "had" to have these stamps....

this girl runs on....

TGIF crafty peeps...  First up a CAS card inspired by the current CAS(E) this sketch, anyone at all surprised my mind was thinking abut coffee?  And I'm really excited to share that I'm joining the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Design Team.  Some of you may know the #amymademedoit hashtag (that enabling friend of mine!), so it's an honor to be asked.  And because the DT wanted an Instagram link (and I have some very active IG use, but only via my work agendas-- Outside Inn, Inn Town Campground and VisitNevadaCity) I finally caved and added my crafty hat to the mix.  So, as of this morning you can find me on Instagram for my greeting cards.
