Colorful Smiles

I am so glad I decided to get the Color Theory Suite on pages 146-147 of the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. The colors and designs evoke a colorful calmness. So what better way to send a little Thank You note than with a relaxing drink and a lounge chair? Hunter selected Berry Burst and I decided to add a touch of Crushed Curry pop of Basic Black and I think it’s a lovely color combo! The new Mini Dimensionals are awesome – I used one little one on each drink to pop it up. So nice to not have to cut a regular size Dimensional into smaller pieces!

Anchor Greetings

I apologize for the length of time since my last upload. Things have been chaotic around here, to say the least. Life marches on, however, and the clock was ticking down to get my swap cards out. I knew I wanted to participate in the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge. It’s the first time I planned to contribute…the perfect challenge to join in on. It’s the WWC116 – Kath’s Masculine “Anything Goes” Challenge. Unfortunately, the challenge closed yesterday evening. That’s ok, though, because sometimes we just need a little nudging to get our creative juices flowing, right?  So here’s my “Color Challenge” to inspire you:Dapper Garden MarinaSometimes the hardest part of putting a card together is just deciding on colors. I went with a few of my favorites…blues and green. Once I picked my colors, the rest of the card came together quite quickly. It was nice being able to just stamp for an hour.  The die used to cut out the sentiment is from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits collection. It is a perfect fit – with just enough room for an enamel shape! Between the enamel shape and the Burlap Ribbon, they are spot-on embellishments for a masculine card. And I love the finishing touch of adding the anchor to the envelopes, too!

Anchor Greeting

Stamp Set:  Guy Greetings
Cardstock:  Dapper Denim, Garden Green, Marina Mist, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Garden Green, Marina Mist
Lovelies:  5/8” Burlap Ribbon, Subtles Enamel Shapes

Proud of My Best Guy Ever

I had a wonderful 10 days with my son. It went by way too fast. I’m so proud of all his hard work with Nuclear training with the NAVY and the man he has become. I made this card and slipped it into his suitcase for him to find when he got back to his base. Mission Accomplished!

Wisteria Weather and Reminiscing

We’ve been getting hit with so much rain today, that I thought it would be the perfect time to use my Weather Together set with the matching dies. I just love thunderstorms. I remember when the children were itty bitties and scared of the thunder. I would take them outside onto the porch, all of them trying to sit on my lap, and we’d sit there in silence together…watching the lightning and listening to thunder. Bittersweet memories…
