Stamp Stash Saturday-Have a Pawfect Birthday

**I had hoped to post this first thing this morning but I just didn't get it done in time! It's still Saturday though! **

Several weeks ago an online friend, Carissa, started a series, Stamp Stash Saturday, on her Youtube channel that I thought was so fun that I've been wanting to join in!! Another online friend, Jessie, has also been playing along on her Youtube channel.

The idea is to use a stamp/stamp set that you haven't used before. I know I have tons of those!! For this first Stamp Stash Saturday I decided to ink up a set from My Favorite Things called New Best Friend! Such a cute set! I also used my Doodlebug Kitten Smitten 6x6 paper pad that I've been hoarding too!



I am struggling lately with the layout/design of my cards so I used the current Freshly Made Sketch for this card. 



Have a happy day!!

Gerbera Daisy

One of my most favorite stamps that I own is from TAC (The Angel Company, now closed) called Gerbera Daisy. It just makes me smile!


I haven't done any Sweet Sunday Sketches recently (I'm on a quest to do them all in order) so I thought I'd use one today. This is #20



Thanks for stopping by! I'm super excited that a friend/coworker has agreed to give me a ride to work until I'm able to drive so I get to go back to work on Tuesday!! Yay! I can't wait to see everyone!

Have a happy day!

Polka Dot Pals Kyree

It's time to share some inspiration from Little Miss Muffet Stamps!! Don't forget about the challenge too!! You still have time to enter and it's anything goes so super easy!! Click HERE for all the details!!

It's also Customer Appreciation Day!! Be sure to check it out HERE!!

Ever have one of those days when you're crafting? Well that's what happened to me! I started with the cute, fun new release, Polka Dot Pals Estrella but as you can see, she didn't make it here. I swear my coloring looked like something between a mess and a disaster! So then I decided to color up the fun Polka Dot Pals Kyree. I'm still not thrilled with my coloring but she's so cute that I had to get her on a card!!


I had fun with all the different colors for the background of the card. A great way to use up scraps!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day!

Wednesday Wings

If you are a long time follower of my blog then you remember I use to run a challenge called Flutter By Wednesday's. Each Wednesday I'd post a creation with a butterfly or fairy. I enjoyed hosting the challenge so much and as crazy as it is, I still miss it. 

I thought of reviving the challenge but then decided that isn't really the best choice. Flutter By Wednesday's ran it's course and ended on a high note so there really isn't a reason to bring it back.

But... I still have so many "winged" stamps and I still love creating with them so I decided to start Wednesday Wings here on my blog. Each week (maybe not each week but most weeks) I'll post a creation on Wednesday that features some sort of wings~fairies, butterflies, birds, etc. 

Without further ado, here's my first Wednesday Wings creation using a digi from Faery Ink. I got her free in their Facebook group and she's called Fable Summer Night Fae.


I am still trying to find my groove so another super simple card that just showcases the image!

Have a happy day and thanks for stopping by!!

Polka Dot Pals Odelie

Even though I really, really don't like crutches (I use my scooter as much as possible!), I thought this cute digi stamp, Polka Dot Pals Odelie, from Little Miss Muffet Stamps was too cute to pass up! 

Be sure to check out and play along with the new Little Miss Muffet Challenge that started today!! It's anything goes so easy peasy! Check out all the details~ HERE!

I am very thankful that I didn't have this surgery in the summertime. Although it would be easier with clothing, I'd be so embarrassed with my hairy legs as shaving is something that just doesn't happen! LOL!



I feel a little rusty with making cards so this is a super simple one to help me get my groove back!

I'm entering this into the following challenges~
