Art Impressions launch of Windows to the World!


Hey everyone!! It's time for a new challenge at Art Impressions Blog, and we're also celebrating the launch of the new beautiful 2015 Windows to the World stamps! These are so gorgeous and so quick and easy to color! You're going to love them!! This one is PERFECT for me. I so love being around the water. Plop me down on an ocean beach with good loud waves that break against a rocky shore, and I could stay there for the rest of my life and never leave except to buy food and alcohol. LOL! One of our favorite places in the world is Pacifica, CA. That's my true heaven!  Ok...enough of that! So the new challenge at Art Impressions is Spring Colors!



I used Pleasures Window (sku 4588) colored with Copic markers.





I'm going to do my best to list the markers I used here. I put them away before I realized I hadn't written them down. DOH !!   YG91, YG93, B41, G21, G24, E31, E33, E23, E42, YG13, YG17, C1,  C3. I can't remember the golden colors I used for the tall grass. I'm sorry!!

So please be sure and pop over to the Art Impressions blog to check out all the gorgeous creations by my teamies, and then we'd love for you to show us your spring colors for a chance to win an awesome prize package of Art Impressions Stamps!! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon. Hugs!

Papertake Weekly - A Cut Above

Good morning!! It's time for a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly, and this week the theme is A CUT ABOVE! This includes die cutting, fussy cutting, or punches.  We are being sponsored this week by Dawny herself! She is offering up a fabulous voucher to Lili of the Valley!  Thank you Dawny!!

So today I'm showing you the cutest little bunny treat holder that was die cut with the Silhouette Cameo! Super cute and super easy!! I simply added a pink bow and it was done! These would be so easy to make a bunch for the grandkids classmates! I must say those little Easter eggs that are pictured below are long gone now. :)

This week, Dawny is asking for the word "happy" in your sentiment. So it could be Happy Birthday, Happy St Patrick's Day, or your own version of happy. You can see I just used the word happy. We are sponsored by or very own Mary and Andrea over at The Ribbon Girl!! WOOHOO!! LOVE their shop!! there is so much yumminess!

For my card today, I've used one of the adorable images from SQUISHY HUGS from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I must say I ADORE this entire set and will no doubt use it lots!  This set contains three images and seven coordinating sentiments!!

Papertake Weekly - Mum's the word!

Hi and happy Tuesday!! It's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly. This week, Mum is definitely the word! As Mother's Day is coming up, Dawny is asking for you to make something nice for Mum, or for any female if you prefer.  We are sponsored this week by Paper Nest Dolls.

I've been wanting to make one of these 3D cards from Lori Whitlock at Silhouette for a long time. So I was finally able to cut one. They collapse down flat for mailing too! Then you can just pop it right back up to put it out for show! 


Please be sure to pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out all the gorgeous creations by the DT, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
