Hello everyone and happy Friday!  It's another weekend, so SMILE!
Here I even created a card to share with you, hope it will bring a smile on your face!

So I'm combining 4 challenges here, phew.
For my colour inspiration, it's from this week's Colour Me #26..
For the basic sketch, it's from CAS(E) this sketch #82.
I also added a few hearts on the card to fit in this month's CAS-ual Fridays #133.
And lastly, Simon's: Anything goes (it's a cheat here, I didn't use any American Craft products).

Clean and simple, this is the way I like.  Sometimes I wonder why I spent so much money on craft supplies simply to make clean and simple card? Funny, isn't it?!

Have Faith - using SSS Gingham stencil

Hello all!  I'm popping in to share a card I made using some SSS products.  I saw a video by Kristina Werner using Gingham stencil made a background and it was gorgeous, so I purchased this product and tried it out on this card, I have to say, I like the result and I think this stencil is just gorgeous, but I don't think I will use it very often, it's very hard when you use a blending tool, because it's so intricate, I almost dabbed the pad on to the stencil.  It took a bit of time.

For the rest of the card, it's pretty simple.  I stamped 'Have Faith' from SSS Blessed set onto a piece of vellum and stamped the butterfly with some blue/mint ink, and added some pink in the open areas. and adhered the whole thing onto the card base and added some dash lines on the top, and that finished the card.

Here is the card:

Robotastic birthday

Hello!  This is my first post at Lawnscaping challenge: Stars and stripes.  My latest Lawn Fawn order arrived last week and I couldn't wait to get my fingers inky with this Beep Boop Birthday set.  I think the robots and all the elements in the set are just super adorable.  So here's my take-on of this challenge.

Pretty simple card, quick and easy with very basic colouring and a bit blending.  I had so much fun making it.  Anyway hope you like what I created,  and thanks for stopping by.


Nautical hello

I'm totally in my Clearly Besotted mood.  Here I'm using the anchor stamp from 'Ahoy Matey' set and made some nautical themed cards.

Sorry about the embossing, I was in a hurry and didn't do a good job on it.
I'm going to submit this one to this month's CBS challenge: Anything Goes, and the current The Card
Concept#12: Use a nautical theme.

And here are some more.  I have this 'Happy hello' dies from My Favorite things, I just die cut them all and made four cards in one go.  I just love this clean and simple look of these cards.

That's all for today.  Thank you for stopping by.

Thank you teacher!

Hi there!

You can tell I've got kids right?  Because I'm making ' Thank you, teacher' cards.

Just kidding, my wee boy is only 2 and a half and my wee baby girl is only 6 months, they aren't in nursery yet.   But I was asked to make some cards by a mum for her children's teachers in our local school.  And I was really thrilled that she liked my cards.

I just LOVE CBS stamps, totally, entirely, too much.  I'd like to own all their stamp sets, so I've been saving up like crazy (hehe).

Anyway, I also would like to submit the first one to the current CBS challenge: Anything goes.  Do play along if you could, there are tons of brilliant entries this time.

See you soon!
