Happy Trails






Just love the colors for YNS Color Challenge #6, so I had to play.  I was hoping my new YNS stamps would arrive today, but the mailman brought absolutely nothing for me! Good news, I didn't get any bills either! The other good news--I have something to look forward to next week--my new stamps!  Thanks for stopping by!  Debbie

This one layer card uses a die from Paper Smooches and several Distress Inks.  The colors were inspired by Color Throwdown. The sketch is this week's SPARKS' Designer Draft.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Debbie

http://drsdesignsblog.blogspot.com/I am loving this week's theme challenge at Cupcake Inspirations--Cherries!  I went very CAS with this card.  I used one of my all time favorite stamps from our wonderful sponsor--DRS Designs.  It's called Lines O' Plenty.   The sentiment is You Brighten My Day. I used a super fun cherry brad to finish the card (source of brad unknown). I hope you will join us this week for our cherries challenge!  Debbie

More crafting fun with my my new Newton's Nook Designs stamps.  This kitty is from Hanging in There and the sentiment is from Winged Wishes.  The fun paper is from My Mind's Eye--Lost and Found-Heirloom.  Oh the fun nestled heart dies are from Technique Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by!  Debbie

It's Your Day--Make a Wish



Here's another card using stamps I recently won from Waffle Flowers.  The set I used for this card is called On My Mark.  I am so loving this overly long kitty!  I used the colors from Waffle Flowers Photo Inspiration challenge to create a fun masculine b-day card.  I'm also entering this card in the CAS-ology challenge--Never Been Used Schtuff.  Since this stamp set was new...it's never been used. My goal is to use every stamp set before I can buy a new one, and well I just ordered some new sets, so I have to get busy!

 Challenges:


Waffle Flower Challenge-20150112

Perfect Together


I recently won some fabulous stamp sets from Waffle Flowers.  The set I used for this card is called In Every Way.  I am so loving it!  I used the colors from Waffle Flowers Photo Inspiration challenge to create a wedding/anniversary card.  I'm also entering this card in the CAS-ology challenge--Never Been Used Schtuff.  Since this stamp set was new...it's never been used.  I'm trying to use every new stamp set at least once before getting distracted and buying more!

I'm playing with my new Spectrum Noir pencils again.  This time I'm using one of my favorite bunny images.  Those enormous ears make me smile every time!  ~Debbie
