Hello!  Playing along (for the first time) with the PTI Transformation Tuesday Challenge.  The top card is my re-do of the card below.  The card below was for one of the Stamp A Faire challenges, click here for the original post, and I made a stained glass window for the leather challenge.  It's too heavy for me, so I swapped out the background for an embossing paste background with a PTI stencil and added the notebook die instead of a tag to give it a little less bulk.  I also didn't like the white flower on the kraft card stock, so I die cut the flower onto kraft this time.

coffee love

Hello... I'm a little late to my own party.... My fun card above is up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today (I'm only 12 hours late posting this).   And keeping with the coffee theme, I made this latte card for the current CAS(E) this sketch challenge.  Better late then never, right... now off to find some wine.

you can do this

Do you know that I make cards that are like self-help agendas?  You can definitely read between the lines on my card... it's not usually very subtle.  My first card is a CASE of one of the PTI release cards, I thought they were going to do a Create With Us challenge, but I was wrong... still like the card thought.  My second card is for this month's Altenew Inspiration Challenge, it's a bit too purple for me, but I gave it a friend for her birthday... so it's being loved.

a.larm clock

A super CAS card to send to a friend who recently had a baby.... playing along with this week's CASology, challenge "parent."  Went for the most beautiful spring walk today, I have more photos, but here's one on Instagram.

happy birthday

Playing along with this week's MFT Sketch Challenge, my card uses Lil Inker balloons and sentiment, but I used 3 MFT dies to finish off the CAS card.  Now, who's birthday am I forgetting?

40 and fabulous!

One of my near and dear friends is turning 40 this week and being my main pen pal (in addition to seeing each other in real life, we've been writing each other regularly for 20+ years)... so I've sent her a few birthday cards.... this one is in the outgoing mailbox right now.  I'm playing along with this week's PTI Make It Monday "Graffiti Word Art" I decided to use the same ideas for numbers.  For the drop show fun I just used the layering PTI number dies.  I loved the inky fun and then clear embossing powder tip- the numbers have a bit of texture to them.

Coffee & Love

Hello.... I'm back!  Our family went on a road trip for spring break, so I've been away from my very messy crafty desk (funny how all the supplies from this month's card class did not put themselves away?).  Playing along with this week's My Favorite Things sketch.  I combined a Papertrey Ink circle die with MFT coffee and heart die.  The sentiment is from the digi set from Graciellie Designs die cut out with a MFT die and the background is the Lil Inker woodgrain die.  Now back to the stack of paperwork that has my name on it.... TGIF!
