AHSC 272: Celebrate your day!

Such lovely layers in this week's sketch!  I grabbed a pretty stack of papers and began to choose solids and prints for the various layers and went to work die cutting:  Reverse Confetti Edgers, PTI Heart, MFT Stitched Flowers and Mini Scalloped Rectangle.  The gorgeous sentiment is from Verve's Poppy Birthday.

Thanks for visiting.  Hope you find time to play along at AHSC!

Starry Birthday

I was blessed to win a prize from My Favorite Things,  and this sweet image was part of my order.  I had fun experimenting with the image using watercolor markers, pencils, and paper piecing.  I settled on this version which includes colored pencils and paper piecing.  Thanks, MFT, for the happy mail!

MFT Sketch in Red and White: Birthday Wishes

I certainly am enjoying this little window of summer that allows for crafting like crazy!  Soon, school preparations will begin, and card making time will be precious.  I am glad, though, to enter the school year with a well-stocked stash.

This card fits the MFT Sketch and Simon's challenge to use red, white, and/or blue.

Thanks for stopping by,

You Fill My Cup With Happiness

In this post, Lisa Bzibziak gives an opportunity to show a little love to the Coffee Loving Card Makers sponsors.  I won this set, Time for Tea, from the sweet Kathy Schweinfurth and am thrilled to have an opportunity to say thank you!


Inspired By Vintage Linens--Birthday Wishes

I love vintage linens, and this photo is SO gorgeous!  The envelope fold on the pillow called for Reverse Confetti Edgers Dies and RC's Rose Garden made the perfect bouquet.  The beautiful greeting is from Verve.

So grateful for the inspiration and for your visit,

MFT Summer School---Symmetry

Today's lesson from MFT's Summer School is Symmetry.  Yep!  Sounds  like geometry, and it was hard for a gal who was born without the "make things straight chromosome".   This card has lots of fun layers and lots of products:
PTI Mix and Mat Heart Die
Reverse Confetti Banner in Bloom
