Hello! I hope you're having a wonderful Saturday!
I'm back as promised with another Puddle Jumper Card!
This time I've used the adorable Mary Jane; who just happens to be one of the January releases at Claudia & Company.
For Mary Jane's card I really wanted to use the Basic Grey Olivia paper. I have been ooooing and aaaaaaaawing over this paper ever since it was available. I think it's one of my absolute favorite color combos. In addition to the BG papers, I've also used ribbon from My Minds Eye, a beautiful Prima flower and done some bordering with the Martha Stewart hydrangea punch. The sentiment is a rub on from Melissa Frances (Heart & Home Collection).
I hope you like it! Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hello! Happy Friday!
I'll be back tomorrow with another Puddle Jumper card, but until then, I wanted to sneak in with a little card I made last month for the swap group I'm in (affectionately called the Sisterhood).
The challenge last month was to create a color blocked or monotone card using a favorite color. Well, as you can see, one of my fave colors is orange and I don't often have the opportunity to use a lot of orange, so I was super excited when our sweet Donna presented us with this challenge.
I got out my old Tart and Tangy stamp set from SU, matched that with a sentiment from Papertrey Ink and paper from K & Company and voila. Can you smell the oranges? :)
Thanks for popping by today and I'll see you back here tomorrow!

How's your week going?
I thought I'd pop in with another fun Puddle Jumper card for you today.
For this one, I'm featuring PJ Todd that was released this month from Claudia and Company. And since this stamp is in digi form, I decided to play with the sizing a little bit. There's so much you can do with digi stamps! :)
And that's what's up for today...well, except for a trip to the dentist too (yikes)!
Hope you have a great one!
