Happy Birthday

I just finish up a Birthday card that I will be linking to Freshly Made Sketches438 and CAS Colour Sketches#373 to tie up my weekend.

The products used on this card: For the base and layer, Neenah Solar White 110#, Neenah 80# for images, Versafine Onyx Black, SU Pool Party, and Pear Pizzazz paper and for coloring the images, Altenew Striped Florals stamp with matching dies, MFT Essential Sentiments.

That's it for this afternoon. I plan on sitting on my screened porch and catching up on some emails. Have a wonderful evening and a Safe and Well upcoming week.

With Sympathy

I had some time to finish up a card that I cut on Saturday with some of my stamping friends. I was glad I held off until yesterday to put it together and add a sentiment.  I had a friend of mine from Arizona loose her husband several days ago and I needed a Sympathy card. The new stamp set by SU, Wishing You Well fit what I needed for the card.

SU Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow
Ink: SU Mossy Meadow
Stamp: SU Bloom With Hope (RET)
Pearl accent
Wink of Stella on Bow

That's it for today. I'm off to do a little more preparation for the upcoming storm. Thankfully it has turned into a CAT 2 instead of 4. Although we are about 2 hours West of Wilmington were the most dangerous impact will be, we will still get quite a bit of rain and wind. I feel we are as ready as we can be and are trusting the Lord to keep us and our families safe.

Have a great day and go do something you LOVE!

Christmas Sparkle

Today's card is just one of the Christmas/Holiday cards I will be posting over the next several months. Not that each post will be Holiday themed, but hopefully a nice sampling showcasing  several of the new Holiday SU stamps that I have.
I found this design idea over on Pinterest, but unfortunately, I don't remember the gal that posted it.  With this  CAS card, this was my interpretation of the original. 
I just have to say, I love, Festival of  Trees, and having the matching punch even makes it sweeter. The  Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper is just so beautiful and cuts beautifully with dies and the Big Shot. I'll have restrain myself for using it on to many cards.
I used Lost Lagoon and Pool Party CS, but was originally going to use Soft Sky. I had stamped the baubles prior to checking then realized I did not have ONE piece in my stash! Ok, it was onto plan B. I'm still happy with the end results and perhaps know one will notice. (smile)
Make it a great Wednesday, do som…


Hello all. I'm posting a card today to link up to Freshly Made Sketches and a new site for me,The Flower Challenge #35.

The FMS sketches are great, but keeping them cleaned-lined and fresh sometimes is a challenge for me, but this card was created fairly quick. I must have had my mojo on yesterday.

I needed a card for my neighbor who is moving to a new house and she loves flowers. Hence, a card to congratulate her on her new home. The Flower Challenge blog calls for the floral to be the main feature, which I believe this card does.


Paper: Neenah Solar White 110#, SU  Powder Pink, Berry Burst
Stamps: Altenew Garden Treasures, SU Simply Wonderful (SAB)
Ink: Memento Jet Black, Altenew Pink Diamond, Pinklicious, Fresh Leaf / Forest Glade Fresh Asparagus GinaK
Die-cut: SU  Oval Stitched Die

I hope you have a wonderful day and are able to do something you LOVE!

Blessings, Bernie
