Here's my first official card with this 

I've used Emu Adele and sentimen stamp

This sweet bird has me smiling!  It's such a fun image

so I decided to be fun with the coloring, too.

background that twinkles just right when it hits the light.

Stand by you!


Hi friends!

Today I'm flying by with a bright and fun flamingo card!

Where you flamingo, I go! :)

There's just something about bright, fun, whimsical

 colors that brings me such joy!

I created this one after a wonderful family vacation

and captured the view I saw in my memory.

The sunset, the colors, the flamingos!

This card features Lawn Fawn 'flamingo together'

along with LF designer paper.

I've also added in some watercoloring behind the birds

and distress ink waves under them!

Thanks for stopping by!

Like at the lake pier!

Hi friends!

Today's card is a trip to the lake!

By now I've already made it to our last vacation before

our busy family has a return to college 

and a move to a new home!

We are so excited for the big changes happening in our family

and know that God's blessings always surround us :)

For this card, I'm channeling Lake Life!

This is one of my favorite Hero Arts kits (June 2023)

paired with an older stamp set pier at the lake.

It was recently the anniversary of my dad's birthday in heaven.

Not a single day ever ever never goes by that he doesn't cross my mind.

And I channeled him when I was creating this card - in the best way!

I have such fond memories of living in North Florida 

and he took us often to the neighboring lakes to fish, snorkel

and even attempt to water ski behind our boat!

We would often see these exact sunsets as well :)

Using distress oxide inks, I blended a background in sunset-y colors

and stamped out the images fussy cutting some, die cutting others!

I'm SO in love with how this card came out -

much like the memories I hold dear to heart!

Thanks for stopping by!

Lots of love!




Get Well Soon!


Hi friends!

Today's Get Well Soon card is for a dear friend 

and I needed to make her a card Toot Sweet!

I made this one AND got it in the mailbox in under 10 minutes.

Before I continue, I wanted to share that my friend Toni and I

have a YouTube collab every Friday called #funcardfriday and

Here is the link to my channel and we've love to see what YOU make!


Ya'll know me by now - my cards are pretty packed 

and I rarely make a CAS card.

NOT that I don't love 'em - I do, I do!

I just tend to go for the gusto and pile a lot onto a card 

and to do anything less looks like I didn't try (in my eyes!)

So I grabbed my Pure Innocence from MFT Stamps

and inked it up and colored it with my copics.

I added another mftstamps sentiment from a prayer set.

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Lots of love,



Let's hit the beach!

Hi friends!

Today is a fun day ~

It's a beach day!

This card is for Week 5 of the Summer Inspired card hop

organized by The Kellys!  

(That would be my sweet friend Kelly on Instagram and moi!)

How it works: 

Each week, we have a summer theme where you chose

1 or the other OR combine both if you'd like.

For Week 5, Kelly (the other one!) has chosen BBQs or favorite activity.


One of my favorite things is a trip to the beach!

I could be there all day every day if i could! :)

There's something so incredibly relaxing about a lounge chair 

under the shade of an umbrella watching the waves.

Add in a good book and it's absolute bliss!

This random photo I took outside while photographing cards

shows our gorgeous Florida weather!

The sky's are crystal blue and everything here is so green.

HOT HOT HOT but that's typical here :)

Wishing you a day filled with all of your favorites!

Lots of love,

3M: Friends at first sip!

 Hey friends!

Today's card is for the 3M card group,

also known as being the 3 Musketeers and that would be 

Barb, Jeanette and myself!

We take turns every 3 months being a hostess,

stamping and mailing an approved image to each other

and we all create a card based solely on that one image.

This month - for August - Jeanette was up

and she sent us this darling coffee girl!

I paired it with a fun backround stenciled with watercolor

and added a sentiment from MFT stamps.

Be sure to see what Jeanette and Barb 

created with this same stamp!

Thanks for stopping by!

Lots of love,


Scuba your way through summer!

Hi friends!

It's almost the weekend ~ yasssss!

Today's card is a fun-in-the-summer scuba card

that I'll send to my son :)

You can see the video here on my YouTube channel:

This was such a fun card to make!

I started with a watercolor panel background using Altenew half pans.

While it was drying, I stamped/die cut the images from

a couple of Lawn Fawn stamp sets to create this under the sea scene.

And those cute little clouds tucked into the corner,

it was the view as if looking up :)

I used my copic markers to color the images

and just love the bold, whimiscal colors this beholds.

That's it for now!

Lots of love!
