Thanks for the Lift

I can honestly say that this has been a pretty crumby week.  Sigh!  Going into my little craft space is like therapy for my soul.  I haven't had the mental energy to even walk by it.  I was looking through all my regular blogs and was inspired by a certain stamp set that is my FAVORITE.  Ok, maybe one of my tops.  On the Cards Blog, the challenge was to make a card using a kite.  I slowly crept to my little crafty desk and sat down.  I could use a little "lift" at the moment and came up with this.

Stamps:  Up, Up, and Away (PTI)
Paper: Vintage Cream, Spring Rain (PTI)
Ink: True Black, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse, Spring Rain (PTI)
Other: Copic Spica Markers

Thanks for looking!!

Back to School

I am participating in The Digi Shack Sketchbook Wednesday.  I had the idea to have the kids give the teachers little back to school gifts and thought this card would be perfect.  The only hang up - my two kids have 7 classroom teachers between them plus a music teacher and a P.E. teacher.  So, I will be making cards for a while.  :)  Enjoy!

Paper: Lemon Tart, Pure Poppy, Simply Chartreuse (PTI)

Doggone Great

It is Sketchbook Wednesday at The Digi Shack.  There have been some new releases and another right around the corner (*wink*).  So, you should head over to TDS and check out all the things that have been happening.

Here is my take on the sketch:

Stamps: Digital Dog by Brian Lock (The Digi Shack), Tiny Treats Valentine (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Black Pattern (The Paper Studio), Orange Dots (MME), Aqua Mist (PTI)
Other: Copics, True Black Ink and Aqua Mist Ink (PTI), Orange Zest Buttons (PTI), Black Stitched Ribbon (Hobby Lobby)

Thanks for looking and commenting today!!  This summer has been a little more hectic than I ever realized.  This is my first actual summer because my kids were in school this year.  WoW!  I never knew it would be this crazy to have them home all day everyday - after all, I have always stayed home with them.  One day was the same as any other before they were in school.  So, thanks for bearing with my somewhat neglected blog at times.  I still love making cards more than ever; I'm just not able to stay consistent while the kids are needing my EVERY waking minute.  :)
