Hope Your Day is Fabulous

Today our sweet niece Renee celebrated her 8th birthday. Can't wait to see her and her family in January when they'll be over from Australia. I was a bit late sending Renee's birthday card, so it didn't arrive on time for her birthday. Hopefully it will arrive somewhere this week.

Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Hawaiian Shores, Stamper's Select White) | | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Beautiful Blooms II, Background Basics: Houndstooth, Signature Greetings, Dot Spot) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Orange Zest, Spring Moss, Hawaiian Shores), A Muse Studio (Buttercup), Versafine (Onyx Black), VersaColor (Celadon) | Ribbon: Papertrey Ink (Hawaiian Shores Saddle Stitch) | Button: A Muse Studio | Twine: May Arts | Tools: sewing machine

Oh....and I've been working on a new mini kit that goes up for sale in my store Cards & Wishes very soon. Here's a little sneak peek...

Until next time.

Got Sketch? Card Team Member

I've been a contributor to the Got Sketch? blog for quite a while and some weeks ago Valerie Salmon asked me to join the Got Sketch? Card Team. Accepting a new position may sound a bit weird as I gave up some of my DT positions recently, but I feel that this card team is a great fit. Valerie's sketches are great to work with, and always inspire me.

Today's card is based on the sketch that went up on the Scrapbooks Etc. blog yesterday. Fleur asked me to make a card for one of her teachers who was a substitute for three months while her other teacher was on maternity leave. Her teacher was really pleased with the card and the gift bag filled with delicious cookies.

And my new A Muse ink that I like a lot...

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Kraft) | Patterned paper: Crate Paper (Random) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Big & Bold Wishes) | Ink: A Muse Studio (Currant) | Felt: Papertrey Ink (Autumn Rose) | Button: A Muse Studio | Twine: May Arts | Adhesive dots: Zva Creative | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Doily Details, Beautiful Blooms II #1 Die Collection, Sending You Die Collection, Large Scalloped Border Die), We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper), sewing machine

Thank you for stopping by. Until next time...
