Celebrate & Wish Big

The August PTI Blog Hop is underway! Nicole Heady chose a beautiful inspiration photo. I LOVED the lid of the little suitcase and ran with it.

Wouldn't you like to pack up this sweet suitcase and go read for awhile?

I recently found a quatrefoil svg for my Cricut that I used for a background. I have lots of plans for this beauty. Can't wait to try it as a stencil or with vinyl. If you want this free svg, here is the link - Quatrefoil svg.

The flower stamp is from Iconic Images. The sentiment is from Half & Half. I'm still waiting on the dies. I thought I had ordered them on release but alas I was mistaken so now I'm stalking the store.

Happy Hopping Everyone!

Way to Go!!

This is my favorite card that I made using PTI's Make It Monday #26: Decreasing Apertures challenge. I went UP and DOWN!

The star prints/dies and the limitless layers were the perfect choices for this fun card.

Friend (SHIP)

Another HOT day in Texas! We reached a 110 degrees yesterday. We are still in the midst of remodeling but I managed to play along with Verve's 1st August sketch challenge

Can I just tell you I'm happy with this card. I tried a couple of new techniques for me, mixed the colors up a little, and had fun. 

I love 'friend" embossed behind the ship and then rubbed with spring rain ink.

I used the impression plate above and below my score line. On the next picture I added the friend tag. Which way do you prefer????

I'm off to get some sweet tea!! Stay cool friends!
