Riding The Waves




Happy Monday! I'm here today to kick off a new Greeting Farm Series that is happening over at Quick Creations. Noelle is promoting the greeting farm characters and my character is Ian, so for the next few QC posts, its going to be all about him with some Anya thrown in the mix.

What better way to start off this series than with a very summery shaker card ;) Ian is riding the waves and enjoying life. I popped him into the shaker card portion so when the card is moved around, he'll look like he's out there surfing. hehe. I hope this inspires you to get crafty or get out there and ride your own waves. Thanks for stopping by. 

My supplies have been linked to QC Shop and while there make sure to check out the Sale she is currently having.

Summer Fun in the Sun



Hello and Happy Monday! Summer is in full swing, but for the past few days we have had weird weather. We've had rain (much needed), horrible humidity and and unpleasant 90+ degree temps but spending time at the beach has helped. So with that said, here's another summer theme creation for you :) Just a few more to go, lol.

Today is my day over on the Quick Creations blog/shop. I'm featuring a C.C. Design image on my card today. I used this bright and super cute doodlebug paper to bring fun in the sun look. She looks like she's ready for a stroll on the boardwalk followed by a day at the beach :)  My supplies can be found at the Quick Creations shop. Make sure you take a look around as Noelle is currently having a sale!

Now its your turn to go have some fun in the sun!!

Sending Sunny Thoughts



Hello and Happy Monday! Since summer is here, I thought i would continue with the summer theme creations - watch out, more will follow ;) 

Today is my day over on the Quick Creations blog/shop. I'm featuring a Pollycraft image on my card today. Since the treat of the season is ice cream, I wanted to use these cone/popsicle papers that are so cute and look great for this cutie that is having a great day at the beach.  Ahhh the beach, the place to be to hide from the recent humid temps. 
Most of my supplies can be found at the Quick Creations shop. Make sure you take a look around as Noelle is currently having a Summer Sale. Happy Shopping!

Enjoy The Summer


Hello out there! Summer is here!! Wow, it came fast and now it will be loooong days of sunscreen, water and lots of ice cream;) 

Today is my day over on the Quick Creations blog/shop. I'm featuring an E. Bell image on my card today, with a water-colored background. The idea behind this was for this little girl to be on a resort somewhere, enjoying her mint chocolate chip ice cream and getting ready to build a sand castle. Hmmmmm, I wish I was on a beautiful resort as well. Most of my supplies can be found at the Quick Creations shop. Make sure you take a look around as Noelle is currently having a Summer Sale.
Happy Shopping and Happy Thursday!

You Color My World

Submitting to: TGF Farm Fresh June Challenge

Hello out there! Wow, summer is coming in fast and soon it will be loooong days of sunshine, popsicles, bubbles and bbq - although it's not very different from our year round weather ;) 

Today is my day over on the Quick Creations blog/shop. I'm featuring Twirl Anya on my card with a very colorful background. The idea behind this was for it to be a very happy card to be sent to a special someone. Aww, isn't she a cutie with her pixie cut? Most of my supplies can be found at the Quick Creations shop. Make sure you take a look around as Noelle is currently having a Summer Sale.
Happy Shopping and Happy Thursday!

S'more Fun with You


Hi friends! I'm here today to show you the Lawn Fawn cuteness that I'm sharing on the Quick Creations Blog. Since camping season is upon us, what better way to invite a friend on a trip than with a card that says, "Hi friend! Join me in the woods where we will sleep on rocks, twigs and dirt while we fend off mosquitoes and roaming hungry bears. But worry not, because we will have a fire were we will sing songs, eat s'mores, stare at the stars and scare ourselves half to death with stories of a masked lunatic that wields an ax and has a thirst for killing. Oh and fyi, nature is our bathroom." 
Who knew that these happy little s'mores had all that to say. hehehe.

The products used on this card are all Lawn Fawn. Unfortunately this stamp set is currently sold out at the Quick Creations Store, but you can find other great lawn fawn stamp sets that will perfect for any of your projects. Thanks for stopping by!

SUPPLIES
Stamp: Lawn Fawn - Love You S'more
Paper: Lawn Fawn - Let's Polka, Mon Amie 6x6 Paper
Craft Dies: Lawn Fawn - Large Stitched Rectangles and Say Cheese

TGF Guest Designer: Week 4




Hi friends! I'm back with a new project featuring the cute new TGF critters. Sadly this will be my last post as their guest designer for the month but I'll still be around playing with their stamp. 

Remember last weeks tag? Today I bring you the rest of the project that goes with it. Since I recently jumped on the Pocket Letter craze I created a second one, this one, using all the critters. To see my first pocket letter click here. The concept behind this idea is to encourage pen pal activity between old friends, new friends, crafty friends, all sorts of friends :) These can be as simple or as elaborate as you like and the contents of the pockets can be changed around. 

I used most of my critters to decorate my main pocket where I will add my pen pal letter. The rest of the pockets hold sequins, planner flags, bows, an about me card, some games and other things. One of my games is a tic-tac-toe card because I thought it would be fun to play an 'Across the Country/Pond Tic Tac Toe' game with Jess. It will probably take several months to finish this one game of tic tac toe but that's just something extra to look forward to ;) 

Thank you Greeting Farm for allowing me to be your guest designer. Thanks for stopping by!
