It's a salty penguin party!

 Hi friends!

Happy Fri-yay!

We made it to the weekend!

Today's card will be heading to my granddaughter

so I combined two things:  something fun and the color pink!

I love love LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this background!

I did some watercoloring one evening

 and just made a ton of backgrounds.

This one includes the background sunset and the sand,

both textured with watercolor and salt.

{talk about a Hot Mess!}

This sweet little penguin is holding a yummy cool treat.

My cardmaking friends on IG had a theme this week

 of weddings or ice cream so I went with the later.

It's a cherry creamsicle - that's mah story and I'm sticking to it! :)

I usually dress up the inside of my cards as well

and just never show them ~ but this one was too cute not to share!

Speaking of heat and melting,

be safe out there!

It's sooooooo hot - I hope you are staying cool and staying safe!

Lots of love,



Christmas in July!

 Hi friends!

I have a quick post today!

 I'm juggling cards, social media, work and packing luggages! Whew!

What's more fun that Christmas?

Christmas in July!

Because it means we get the holidays TWICE!

Here's a card I made for a super duper fun IG hop with crafty friends!

The theme was ornaments ............

as you can see, I follow directions REAL GOOD! :)

(In my defense, there ARE ornaments on the card - LOL!)

I used the adorable Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp

Stamptember set with a watercolor background.

I love these adorable little sloths.

I learned last week that my little granddaughter is starting

a new preschool and they have adopted a sloth from Australia!

They will watch it on the monitor and receive mail from the center.

So cuuuuute!

Thanks for stopping by!

Lots of love,



You're Mermazing!


Hi friends!

I hope you are doing mermazing!

I'll be running errands and picking things up this week

for our big trip - woohoo!

I'm swimming by with today's card that

has so much creativity 

in all the stitches, nooks and crannies.

The background ~ watercolored with Simon Hurley Creates lunar paste!

Watch for the video on my YouTube channel this week ~

Wow, what messy fun that was!

The images are from Neat and Tangled and

colored with copics for a SHELL-a-bration theme.

I'm in an Instagram card hop with some fintastic friends

and the theme is: shells!

I used a watercolor panel to stamp/die cut a bunch of shells

and layered them on the ocean floor.

I have to save, I'm slightly obsessed with the colors and design

of this card and pleasantly surprised how much I like it!

  Thanks for stopping by!

3M: I'm FELINE meow-tivated!


Hi friends!

I have a new card to share with you on the start of a fresh week

and I'm FELINE meow-tivated to craft!

I love LOVE puns and fun play on words 

and this one from Newton's Nook is no exception :)

This is my card for the 3M (3 Musketeers) card group

which is Barb, Jeanette and myself.

We have been crafting together with the 3M since November 2014!

Here we go!

We create a card based on the same image.

1 image = 3 different takes!

This month, Barb was the hostess and sent us this adorable

Newton's Nook Crafty Cardio which I just think is so stinkin' cute!

I really wanted to use the crafting is my cardio sentiment

but my die cut slipped so feline meow-tivated it is!

Going forward, my cards will be on my blog (and my Instagram)

and I have a catch up post on 2023's 3M creations as well!

Be sure to stop in Barb's blog and Jeanette's blog 

to see what they have created this month.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lots of love,



Season's Tweetings!

 Hi tweet friends!

We are offically half way through 2023 

which means the holidays will be here like that *snap!*

I'm trying my very best 

getting ahead on my Christmas cards this year

one card at a time!

Here's my YouTube if you want to *hear* this post :)

This week, my Instagram friends and I 

are creating cards for Themed Fridays.

Our cards are based on a weekly theme

 and week 1 is:  Rainbow Christmas!

This one through me for a loop but I perserved

and got out my Lawn Fawn Season's Tweetings stamps and dies,

Ranger distress oxide inks and blended a vibrant background.

Once that was finished, I colored the birdies and branch

with my Copic markers and added a matching sentiment.

You can see more on my Instagram here!

It's definitely a "Kelly card" - vibrant colors and whimsical!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Lots of love,

Happy 4th of July!


Happy 4th of July to my USA friends!

I hope your day is filled with wonderment and memories

and, of course, yummy food!

I forgot to post my 1+12 card yesterday

so that will be up tomorrow :)

Today - I'm sharing a festive July 4th inspired card

that I created for my beautiful granddaughter.

She's 4 so I kept it super simple!

                     The cute stamp is Stacey #celebrate and 

she's from Stamp Anniething.
