Let It Snow MTWC

Hello Friends
How are we all doing? I've been doing great! Just home trying to get my crafty spce ready and organized for the new year and all the upcoming challenges out there. 
I have bben wanting to join the More Than Words Challenge but, I have felt so intimidated by all the gorgeous projects and feel, I fail in comparison. Well it's time to put on my big girl panties and jump right in :). 

I have created a Christmas layout with an older image of my babies. For the sentiment Traditions, I had the stamp in a set I bought many many moons ago and has since shut down. It is tradition to take phots of all the children with fun backgrounds at home.  The handmade embellishments are the 2 tags on the left side of my page and the poinsettias.
I must get my project in sooo, I will be back soon.

Memories Together SID

Hello Friends
Just wanted to share a card I created for the Stick It Down challenge. I pulled out my Heidi Swapp Mists and sprayed away. The chipboard sentiments are random finds from Michaels. I added a little bit of white gesso and stickles and I was done.

I fell in love with the fun sketch and jumped on it. I hope you like it.
Thanks for dropping in

Mojo Monday 468

Hello Friends
I made a card for the Mojo Monday Challenge #468. Gosh it has been so many years since the last time I was able to join. I woke up in a great crafting mood so this is what I created. I used the Great Friend set from Verve Stamps. This is my favorite set but with all the new stuff who knows it it will get bumped, lol.
I have to get it posted right away as there is only 2 days left, heehee.
Thank You For Dropping In!

Enjoying The Moment

Hello My Friends
I almost forgot to share this with all of you. I made it for the More Than Words FB Mini Challenge. I used some of the Finnabair Clear Gesso I ordered and OMG!! I love the effects it gives your projects. I first laid down a coat of the gesso to prime my page, then I stamped the sentiment down the center. I pulled out a stencil and again used the clear Gesso. Using the heat tool I dried the design, then used some Lindy's Mists for a hint of color. The sentiment is from TAC (old set), the flower is Peetaloo and the leaves are C.C.Designs Die cuts.
Thanks Bunches For Peeking.

Sweet Journal

Just dropping in to share another Journal but, I think this one is so sweet. I had trouble putting it down because I felt as though it really needed an image. I paper pieced her but, I decided to clip her wings and creat antennas from flower stems. I think she looks adorable. The paper collection is Prima's Coffee Break.
Thanks for peeking in.

Hello Friends
I really didn't I'd be back so soon but here I am, lol. How is your weekend treating you? Well, Ican say mine is going okay only because, I had time to create. Today a card is what I came up with. I spent all of thursday night sorting threw my flower stash to see what I had left. Surprizinly enough, I was able to fill 2 baskets with filler flowers. I was going to place an order with I Am Roses tonight but now I think I'll go with 49& Market. I just have to figure out who carries it, Lol.

Well, I'm off to get something done or get the heck outta here, hehehe.

Marta Inspired

Hello Friends
Here we are  speeding through another Friday. I was so looking forward to going fishing with the family but, the Hubby has work tomorrow. Now I'm stuck at home cleaning and maybe doing some grocery shopping, blaaahhh....
Well, I did realize that my last post failed until today, lol. I think I fixed it and I now have a new project to share. I was inspired by Marta to pull out my stash of Butterfly images and get to working in my Art Journal. This time I created a spread. I used some soft cool colors, something I rarely do, lol.

I tried a bit of water coloring using Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays. I'm just glad it is mixed media because, the flowers all look so different. The stamps used are Tim Holtz and the stencils are totally random from my stash. I hope you enjoyed your visit. Enjoy your weekend and we'll see you next week.

Art Journal in Blue❤️

I wanted to drop in before my busy weekend to share an Art Journal that I created. I am so in love with this shade of blue. I loved it so much that I sprayed my white Prima flowers with it, lol. I am in search of more solid black and white journals. Hoping to hit a couple of craft shops tonight. 
Well I wish you all a great weekend.

Rustic Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #28

Hello Friends 
So glad to be back with a new project to share with you. I found another site to play along with and I am so excited! I Loved visiting the Design Teams Blogs and all their gorgeous designs. Maybe you can find some inspiration here too.
Today I have created an Art Journal to keep on my desk. I got the idea to create a Rustic Design from

The Mood Board I used belonged to 

I just loved the beautiful rich colors and textures.
I pulled out my Bobunny paper pad, gesso, tree stencil, Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays and plenty of Prima & Petaloo Flowers. I also used a feather that my Son gave me over the weekend while we were out fishing. I just cleaned it up and sprayed it blue. If only I could show you all the shimmer.
I did get a little carried away and added a ton of art beads which I ended up covering up with flowers, lol. Then I pulled out the fake snow and spread a little around the edges. 
That's all from me today. I really hope you enjoyed your visit.

Hello Friends!
I wanted to drop in and share a little project I created for the More Than Words Mini Challenge. I pulled out my stash of Prima's Stationers Desk and got busy. I am just starting to get my supplies restocked. I sold all my stamps, punches, dies and Copics. I feel like such a fool, lol. That's just gives me a reason to shop😜.
Thanks for dropping in. I will return soon with a new project. If you know of any other fun challenges would you be a doll and comment the site below?
Thank You😘

Friend & Circles More Than Words Challenge

Hello Friends!
I know it has been a long while since my last post but, I really needed some time off. I lost my mojo for about a year and I hadn't realized that it had even been so long. I just hope you are all doing well and in good spirits.
Well, I coming out of retirement after finding this really awesome challenge blog,
This months Challenge is Friends & Circles. Pretty easy to and with my New Prima You&Me Collection stash I managed to put this together in a day. I used the Bubble stencil with Heavy Gesso, a little Lindy's Flat Fabio and Tattered Angels Mist for depth and Prima Dies as accents. The vine is what I like the most. It is from Prima but, the flowers that were attached just didn't suit my page so, I removed them and added New Prima Flowers.
Well I do hope you enjoyed your visit. Please stop by again.
Tons Of Hugs,
