OWH Blog Tour & Sentimental Sunday's Celebrations



This is my 2nd post for the OWH S&S blog tour and I am combining it with my post for the Sentimental Sundays Challenge. (For more info on the OWH Blog Tour, click the picture or HERE.)

Before I get to my project, I want share this with you. Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs and Sentiment Sundays gave me this wonderful birthday sentiment digital stamp set to give away for the OWH S&S blog tour today. It is only available through Monday, July 5th. Click on the link below to download.
Edited: I hope you were able to take advantage of this limited time free download. If you missed it but are interested in this digital stamp set, watch for their release on Whimsy Stamps. Thank you Ann for your generosity!



Now on to my project. The Sentimental Sundays challenge for this week is "Celebrations". I actually got inky to make my card. For those of you who frequently read my posts, you know I am a digi stamp addict and rarely break out my actual stamps. I have to say it was fun and that I am going to make a point of digging them out more often.




We would love for you to join in the Sentimental Sundays challenge. Each week, Ann Vento gives away a wonderful digital sentiment set for free download. Playing in the challenge gives you the chance to win either some customized sentiments from Ann or a set of digital stamps that Ann has created for Whimsy Stamps. (Please see the Sentimental Sundays blog for all the details.) To keep the challenge fun and easy, there are only 3 simple rules: it needs to be a new project, it must fit the theme, and it needs to have a sentiment on it. Easy peasy! (Hint: You could use any of the freebie sentiments above to enter the challenge!) So stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog to get your free digi sentiment download and join in the "Celebrations" challenge with us.


Thank you for stopping by! You might want to check out my blog candy give-away on my first OWH post HERE.

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
