CAS Card for Case this sketch #107

Today I wanted to share with you a card that I made for the CAS(E) this sketch! challenge. I love that it is a CAS layout. I have always struggled with white space on my cards but I am learning to love the look  now. These make wonderful cards to mass produce. You could easily change the sentiement and the hearts for any occasion.

Here's a close up so you can see the detail that the crystal effects gave the hearts!

Below you can see the sketch that I used to create my card. 

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting! :)

Valentines Note card

I am loving little note cards lately. They are so quick and easy to make and small enough to stick in my kids lunchbox or my husbands planner. I made this one to stick in my daughters lunch on Valentines day.

I think this stamp is so stinking cute. It is actually a wood mount stamp that I found at my local craft store and I had to have it.  I colored the pig with copics and added some sparkle to his wings and trunks with a Wink of Stella glitter pen. The background was also a stamp I found that same day and knew it would be perfect together.

I stamped the background stamp with versa mark ink and cleared embossed it. To finish it of I added a few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Who doesn't love a cute Cupig?  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to make little note cards for someone special in your life.

Happy Crafting! :)

Back to Blogging!

Hi everyone. It has been a year since I have posted anything on this blog site. I decided last January to try out having my own website to post my crafting projects on and to sell Stampin' Up! After finishing out the year I have decided to step down from the Stampin' Up! career and just have my blog. I absolutely love my time crafting, it is my happy place, but I have a son in the 10th grade and a daughter in Kindergarten and trying balance family, my full time job as a bookkeeper and Stampin' Up! was a bit much.

My kindergartener is 5 years old and one of the youngest in her class. She has had a bit of a challenge learning all the sight words and keeping up. As a parent, we are the ones that go the extra mile to help them feel confident and give them the gentle push right? So, I am devoting more time to her, encouraging and working with her on her school work. I am pleased at the progress she has made since Christmas!

My son just turned 16 but NO car yet. We are not in a big hurry for him to be driving on his own! He will be eligible to take the drivers test this Spring so we may start looking at cars this summer. He plays the snare drum in the marching band and also takes private drum lessons weekly so he keeps me busy!

I am looking forward to this new year and seeing what God has in store for me and for our family.

I'm excited to start my blogging back up and have a place to share my crafting inspiration. I hope you will check in again soon and be inspired!
