Having a Great Weekend!

Wow is it HOT today! I spent some time outside with my grandson & my bulldog Lucy as they played in the water, I even stuck my feet in for a bit. 😊 
I also got to spent a little time at my desk making a few custom orders. I am patiently waiting for my Stampin' UP order so I can finish this one with the Baby First Dies.
I am really enjoyed creating these for new mommies so they can hang them in the nursery. This Retro Fresh paper is retired but works perfect with the colors in The nursery. 
I will have More projects tomorrow to share!

More Clean & Simple Cards For My Beginners

Happy Friday! It is going to be extremely HOT this weekend, and we don't have our pool anymore so I guess I will be sharing with my Little Lucy, not very big but it will work. 

I am working on finishing my last few cards for my beginners class I hold each month. I really enjoy getting together with these ladies and sharing my love for crafting and showing them anyone one can do it. This is my favorite class because I get to watch them grow and move up to my other classes so I am always looking for Newbies :) (wink,wink, contact me to join in the fun)

I created today's card using the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch, I could not decide which stamp set to use at first since I only like to use one or two sets for the class so I can show the many ways it can be used. I have not used Geometrical very much so I thought it was time, this is what I came up with.
Supplies Used: 
CS: Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie & Whisper White
Ink: Night of Navy, Pool Party & Pumpkin Pie

Clean & Simple Fab Friday

Happy Thursday almost Friday! It has been a wonderful week, the weather is amazing I get to leave for Stampin' UP Convention in 5 days, I am so excited.

In my last post I talk about not having any of the current designer series paper on hand and how tough it is for me to come up with a card so I spent way too much time on Pinterest as usual and found a few great sketches that I like and went to work. Today card is inspired from Fab Friday 45 & also saw the Pals Paper Arts color challenge. I know that I did not use Daffodil Delight but I wanted to use the Chevron Ribbon so I changed it up and used Crushed Curry. I will be making this card in my beginners class on the 3rd Thursday of the month, we will be focusing on Manly cards this month.
Supplies Used:
CS: Night of Navy, Whisper White & Crushed Curry
Ink: Night of Navy

Today I have am finishing up my swaps for convention, I can't believe it is in 2 weeks, I am so excited, this will be my first one! I decided to make 100 swap cards so I wanted it to be a clean and simple design that would be easy to duplicate, many times! I have chosen to use the Work of Art stamp set and this is what I came up with but I will be using our Thick Bakers Twine instead of the ribbon.
Supplies Used:
CS & Ink: Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana
