If You Bring Me Coffee




Hi Friends!
It's Thursday and you know what that means--Deconstructed Sketch time! And we made it, we're in the 200's now, and here's sketch 201!

For my card I've used stamp sentiment from Amuse Studio and papers from MME. I was just feeling a little cheeky with this card. Such a fun sketch this time around!

Hope you'll join us!

So Proud of You



Hi Friends!
Hope your day is off to a great start!
Today's challenge over at The Pink Elephant is a GRADUATION theme challenge. All you have to do is use GRADUATION as the inspiration for your card or project and link up to the TPE Blog.

For my card I've used this retired A la mode stamp from My Favorite Things and kept it pretty simple to let the Copics speak for themselves. :)

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you'll join in the fun this week!

Anything But A Card

Hi Friends!
It's the 15th of the month and that means it's time for another DUEL with the Dueling Darlings!
This month our hostesses are Carol and April and they challenged us to make anything but a card. This is a HUGE challenge for me, as I generally don't think outside the box. But thankfully for me, Carol (our Diva hostess with the mostess), didn't challenge me to do so. I just had to THINK BOX! teehee

So I created this little thank you gift box. A great idea for any summer event to say, "thank you" to the hostess with a lil sumpthin' sumpthin'.

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to check out what the other Divas and Dazzlers have for you! (links on my side bar).

Deconstructed Sketch Rewind



Hi Friends!
It's Thursday and you know what that means--Deconstructed Sketch time! But this week is extra special because we don't have a new sketch for you, but new versions of some of our favorite sketches from the past 200!
Well, I have to say that it's been an honor to have been there since sketch 1, which made it even harder to choose just one sketch for this week! So, I decided just to grab the first one that came up in my fave past sketches folder. Kinda like and eenie meenie minie moe thing. Cause honestly--I love all the sketches!
So without further adieu, here is a rewind on sketch #54!
I decided not to even peek at my old card until after I'd created my new one. I didn't want it to influence me in any way. And I'm glad I didn't because I think they turned out pretty differently. For my new version, I used this unicorn stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and paired it with papers from Fancy Pants. I used ribbon for the cascade down the middle (instead of torn paper as I did in my original version). And this time I kept the image pretty much inside the circle/square.

And here is my original sketch 54 card from several years ago. What a fun week to go back and reminisce, as well as get to recreate with some of our favorite sketches!

Hope you'll join us!

Deconstructed Sketch 200



Hello Friends! It's Thursday and you know what that means--time for this week's Deconstructed Sketch Challenge!
And what an exciting week it is, because we've reached sketch #200!!

I decided for my card to pay a little homage to that saying, "You Only Live Once". I've been thinking a lot about that this week. It's so easy to get caught in busy life and each day looks like the next, with years passing so quickly. So, I want to be sure and live my best every day :)

Hope you'll join us this week for sketch #200!

I Freakin' Love You



Hello! Happy Thursday!

We've got another Deconstructed Sketch to get your craft mojo going! And while this one is a little unique, it's definitely up to your individual interpretation.


I had a great time creating this card. I used an old Stampin up set called itty bitty backgrounds and paired it with this fun sentiment from Amuse Studio. AND I got to use the Grand Calibur my Hubbers bought me for my bday, to create the circular shaped card! Wahoo!!

Here is the awesome sketch and links to the AMAZING inspiration from the Sketch Girls.
Hope you'll join us!

Birthday Party



Hello! Happy Thursday!

I've got another Deconstructed Sketch to get your craft mojo going!


For this card I've used some fun scribbly stamps from Papertrey Ink and heat embossed them. The lighting is a little off because the green really is closed to the sentiment's green.

Here is the awesome sketch and links to the AMAZING inspiration from the Sketch Girls. Hope you'll join us!
