Hello crafty friends. Welcome to a new week and a rainy day here in NC. I can’t complain though, it has been so hot and dry the cooler air and rain for the plants has been a welcomed relief. Today, I have an AnyHero card that I made using the Viva la Verve sketch for July week 3 which is a sketch AND inspiration challenge:

(A2: Stamps:  Verve (American Hero); DSP: SN@P  (Short Stories); EF: Cuttlebug; Die: Taylored Expressions; Cut files: Silhouette Studio)

I am trying to get this box of cards shipped to Operation Write Home this week, so I want to make sure I have plenty of AnyHero cards for it! I dry embossed the base white panel. The stars were cut on my Cameo and the little dotted, scalloped border is from Taylored Expressions.

Thanks for stopping by!

Here is a link to the challenge so you can join in the fun!

Happy Crafting!!!

Hello my Doodle Pantry friends! This week, DP is sponsoring the challenge at Pile it on where the theme is “Summer Fun”! I chose the July release Carousel Seahorse and used the pre-colored version. Here is a bit of inspiration to get you started!

(A2; Digital stamp set: Doodle Pantry (Carousel Seahorse); Die: Spellbinders; Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon)

Carousels always make me think of summer and this seahorse has my mind on the beach so I think that qualifies as summer fun! I fell in love with the colors Laurie used and decided to show you those. The DSP and sentiment are also from the set. I’m seriously in love with blue, green and purple now!!!!

Now be sure to go by Pile it on and show us your creation!

Hello to all of my Great Impressions friends! Welcome back for more inspiration from the Great Impressions store! It is the third Saturday in July, so you have plenty of time to play in our July Challenge: Animal Friends! OK here is my card. Hopefully it will inspire you to enter your own creation in our challenge!

(A2: Stamps: Great Impressions Stamps (Up Up and Away – H256, Just Floating - E648); DSP and cloud embellie: SN@P; Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon)

I have always wanted to go up in a hot-air balloon. I don’t know why; maybe because they are so beautiful and look so peaceful. This new stamp from Great Impressions is no exception! It is just gorgeous and so much fun to color, and I just love the sentiment!

Thanks so much for stopping by for a bit of inspiration from Great Impressions. Be sure to check out the current monthly challenge and don’t forget to link your GI creations at our CUSTOMER GALLERY!
