Many thanks!

Hi again!

I'm back with a card this time.  I did this as a thank you card for my daughter's soccer coaches.
I used the Home Sweet Home stamp set from Lawn Fawn and I coloured in the images with copics.   

I used CTMH daisy white card stock along with Recollections teal colour paper (Sorry it came in a pack with 3 other colours and I can't find the sleeve for the name).

I stamped the little red bird directly onto the card stock first and then again on a scrap piece, colour it in and then cut it out and popped it up on foam tape (Z1151).  This way I didn't have to worry about cutting out the tiny little feet!

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!

Happiness enclosed!

Hi everyone!

This is the first card I made when I received my SSS CKOM Happiness inclosed.  I absolutely love the sentiments in this set as well as everything else.  

I used a CTMH die cut card and the patterned paper that the envelope is on is from another SSS CKOM.  The little hearth I punched out from the MS heart punch that has the different sizes and I used Momento tuxedo black ink.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

You make...everyday amazing card

Hi everyone,

Here is a card I did just after I watched the video from Kristina Werner for SSS.

I am very pleased with how it turned out.  I had finished the card without the lines framing embellishments and I thought of adding dash lines but then thought of just a hand drawn line.  I thought about it for a while as I didn't want to go that one step too far but I am super glad I did because I think it just made it that much nicer.

YOU MAKE...everyday amazing!

About the card,  I used a die cut card from CTMH and cut it down because I just couldn't make it work with what I had in mind so I cut the card down to about 3x4 and it makes the perfect size for this card.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Thanks for stopping by!
