Hello crafty friends!
I hope you all are having a lovely week so far! Over the weekend, I was able to get some crafting time in. Yay!!! I love it when I get to craft! Hopefully, within the next couple of days, I will be able to share those cards with you. I am really hoping that the weather today or tomorrow will consists of sunshine so that I can have some natural light to photograph the cards to make my card sharing a little bit brighter and nicer. :)

A New Style

Hello crafty friends!

Happy Friday! I hope you all has fun plans this weekend! With all the driving and lots of activities happened last weekend, our plan is just to relax and chill at home and hopefully get some crafty things done along with a little cleaning around the house.


Today, I have some pretty cards to share. This is rather a new cardmaking style that I am loving. I'm not sure what's it called, maybe shabby chic? Whatever it's called, I love it! I love the fresh look of it. I love the doilies. I never know what to do with them and now, I found reasons to use those doilies. I drew the color inspiration from the jars that are part of an old paper pack collection called Dear Lizzy Neapolitan. I love these lovely jars and I think they're perfect for this style of cardmaking.


I used the flower from Avery Elle Petals and Stems set and stamped in Mint, Buttercup and Apricot inks. The flower centers was stamped in Dark Storm ink and the leaves were stamped in Lemongrass. The jars, flowers and leaves were all fussy cut by hand. I know, you must think I was crazy to cut all these by hand, but believe me, the results was so worth it! The doilies are part of a gift to me from SpiegelMom Scraps for guest designing for her. She's amazing and so generous! I used the sentiments from Lawn Fawn So Much To Say set and stamped them in VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

Once everything was stamped and cut, I die-cut some stitched panels in Simon Says Stamp Mint and Lemon Chiffon Cardstocks using Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. Then I ran the panels through an old Stampin' Up! Flourish Textured Platez. Everything was adhered to some white card bases and the blooms was popped with foam dimensional adhesives.

That is all for me today! I hope you love seeing this style and hopefully I inspired you to give it a try if you haven't already! As much as I love the cute and whimsical style, I think it's nice to go out of your comfort zone and try other style. You never know, you might like it! :) Already, a storm of ideas is circling in my head and I can't wait to put them all on papers! :D Well, wishing you all a lovely weekend and be safe, friends! :)

SpiegelMom Scraps Guest Post

Hello friends!

I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend! My husband and I drove down south to visit our friends in Springfield, IL over the weekend. It was a five hours drive both ways and boy, I was starting to hate sitting in the car! The husband and I did play some made-up celebrity name games to help pass the time. I also brought some magazines to read, but every time I took it out to read, I kept dozing off! Lol! We did had a lot of fun with our friends though! I guess sitting in the car for 10 hours was pretty worth it!

One of the things we did there was touring President Abraham Lincoln Tomb, his home and how he lived. We also saw President Lincoln big bronze head on the way to his tomb. So, I rubbed his bronze nose for good luck! Actually, I was too short, so my husband and our friends had to lift me up to touch it! That was quite a funny sight if you were walking past us! Lol!


Anyway, enough about our trip. I wanted to stop in to let you know that I am up on the SpiegelMom Scraps Blog today sharing two cute cards! I was supplied with some awesome embellishments and I really do hope I showcased them well. If you have time or get the chance, please stop there and check out the two cards I shared over there! I appreciate everyone who stopped there last week and even taking the time to leave me some bloggie love too! It was really nice to read all of your sweet comments! They really made my day! Thank you so much! 

Well, that's all for me. Sending hugs, until next time!

Lawn Fawn: Masculine Get Well

Hi there, crafty friends!

Just popping in to quickly share a super CAS card that I made for my Father-in-law who just had a shoulder surgery this morning. I was thinking of him all day and decided to sit down this afternoon to make a little something to cheer him up. He's still pretty drugged up, but my Mother-in-law said the surgery went well!


This card is pretty self explanatory, so I'll save you the time of reading (and me writing) the step by step description. I had a pretty good idea of how I wanted this card to look like so, I didn't have any problem putting it together. Also, I pretty much create this in under 20 minutes! I love that! :)

Well, I better go get dinner started before the husband get home! Thanks for stopping in and enjoy the rest of your week!
