Cool Cat, Warm Day, a play on the Montly Theme



Happy Caturday!  
Today at Splitcoaststampers, Stacy picked a floral site to inspire us.  You can check out the challenge at IC637.

I chose THIS photo for my inspiration.  I wanted to play with this sweet "Sitting Here" set by SU! (demonstrator Lydia Fiedler) which I bought in the fall but had not inked yet.  My garden seating is a swing instead of a chair as in the photo and I added a few extras, like the kitty and bird!  I used the color of the flowers in the photo for the pillows and the flowers in the flower pot.  


I am also playing along with this month's Dirty Dozen theme sketch at Splitcoaststampers.  The theme this month is "Cold Hands Warm Heart".  I have a warm spring day, warm colored pillows and flowers along with one very Cool cat and a cool blue sky.  

Thanks for visiting today!

Lemony Yellow!



Today I have a super fun card to share featuring Hole Foods by The Project Bin!  

This is a fun "builder" stamp.  First I stamped the donut, then I inked up the glaze in lemon yellow.  A sprinkle stamp is included with the set but I chose to add enamel dot sprinkles this time.


I have staged my card with this very special tea set.  My sister gave this to me for my 9th birthday.  Somehow I managed to hang onto this treasure through countless childhood moves including one where we had to leave all of our possessions behind!  I can't remember if I packed it with my clothes or what but this little tea set and a doll I was given when I was 5 years old were all that made it to adulthood with me!

This week's Featured Stamper at Splitcoaststampers is (Michelerey) and I chose THIS sunny card to inspire my design!

Now here's a look at the yummy Hole Foods stamp set!

Butterflies



Today I am featuring the Kinda Sorta stamp set by The Project Bin.

I stamped this sweet sentiment then die cut it with a scallop oval to fit the center of the card but this stamp set includes two beautiful rectangle frames which can be used to frame all four of the sentiments.

I will be entering my card into Word Art Wednesday's challenge.  This week one of the sponsors at Word Art Wednesday is The Project Bin so why not link up a card to the challenge, you could win a Project Bin prize!!!



I know that this sentiment is talking about the butterflies in your stomach when you see someone you love but when I saw this sentiment I thought of hope.  I love using butterflies and the word "hope" when creating encouragement cards.  

I have received many encouraging cards and acts of kindness over the last couple of months so for me this sentiment takes on a different meaning.  So much kindness reminds me of the symbol of hope we think of when we see butterflies!

Thanks for stopping by!!!  

Here is a look at the entire stamp set!

Birdies, Hugs and a Challenge

It's February first and even though many of us are thinking Valentine's day some of us think Christmas all year long!  The February Dirty Dozen Christmas Challenge is up, I hope you will come join us!


Janeen gave me both the awesome Interactive Windows Stax and Stitched Pinking Edge SquaresDie-namics by My Favorite Things.  

I stamped the greeting from Birdies Hugs & Mistletoe by Unity Stamp Co. on the Pinking Edge square adhered it to the interactive window and added some holiday greenery.

For the inside, I added the adorable birds from  Birdies Hugs & Mistletoe kit!


The interactive window die was super easy to use and adds a little extra interest to this holiday card.  Thank you Janeen!!!
