Smile, Family, & Joy




We got back about a week ago from visiting my family in Hawaii.


I've missed them so much!!!!


Mom and Dad look great and so do my sisters and their families. ;()

There were lots of smiles~so grateful the Lord let us travel to see them.

 Mom and Dad went over and beyond in hosting us...so I was inspired by the latest challenge at Simon Says Stamp.




 I've wanted to mix up my stars and florals for some time now, and this challenge pushed me to try it!


I've got two great sets of stars from My Favorite Things (featured product) so I hope to get at least one more done in time for this challenge~


Thanks for stopping by~

FOCUS



I don't know about you...but focusing is a struggle!


I multi-task wayyyy too often and unnecessarily.

The Lord leads me to prioritize.


If not...I'm gonna lose it, people.

 😆

 
One day at a time...


 This day, I chose this challenge...

Celebrating With Patterned Paper



I have a niece who is celebrating her birthday~

The yellow patterned paper was a left over piece that I framed the birthday character with.

 I built up from there~


 I hope you are making the most of the day and squeezing in a bit of crafting time!

I have a ton of things to do...but I wanted to get some "me time" in~plus I needed a card!

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. :)


Thanks for stopping by~

Pantone Chip Inspiration





hosted by Lexi


If you have the tiniest bits of solid cardstock pieces saved~this is the challenge for you!

I was inspired to create three cards from my solid cardstock remnants.



(SNOWFLAKE CARD: Papertrey Ink What the Doodle Snowflakes/A Thrill of Hope
NOEL CARD:Papertrey Ink Make It Market Tinsel & Tags/In the Meadow/Spruce & Sprigs
AFLOAT CARD:What the Doodle Waves)



 Two of them are CHRISTMAS guys....I'm super super proud of myself for looking ahead. ;)

I'm patting myself on the back for the masculine card too...
 I can almost hear the roar of the crowd's applause!!!

 😆
 

Okay, I'll end my lap around the arena now. ;)

 Thanks for stopping in~

Always True




Sometimes I just want to stamp and have at it...


(stamps: Winnie & Walter In Bloom:Eva's Favorite Flowers/True)



I followed the lead of this inspiration...using the colors and designing floral "stripes" with black highlighted details.
