Their is an abundance of inspiration and fun prizes from over 80 sponsors. You have until Friday May 29th to link up a coffee/tea themed project or two to be eligible for the prizes. Why not join us?

I am also entering this card in the Tuesday Throwdown Tic Tac Toe Challenge

I went right across the middle and used green, a die (to cut out my little piggy) and a stencil.
Tic Tac Toe challenges are one of my favorite and I loved playing along with this one.

Happy 52

This is my last project as a guest design team member at Lasting Memories. The challenge was to use geometric or icon paper, 3 or more photos and circles. In April we celebrated Dave's quarantine birthday with a nice ride in our hot rod(which lives in the garage most of the time) and take out lunch down by the beach. It is a birthday we will both remember.

Thanks for checking in with me....I will be back in a bit to share a cute card I made.

Life Happens

I look forward to the Coffee Lovers Bloghop twice a year. There are so many awesome, inspiring projects....I can sit for hours just looking at all the eye candy. But I also spend time creating my own cards/projects for the hop because, well....prizes. And there are a lot of awesome prizes to be had. This is actually my 4th card for the bloghop....for the other 3 check out my Instagram account 

I used the sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap for this card. They are having their 8th birthday bash with loads of sketches....a new one everyday. I just LOVE their card sketches. You cannot see it too clearly in the photo but I added Glossy Accents to the ice cubes for texture and a little realism....take my word for it, it looks great in real life. 

I am offering a little giveaway to someone who comments on my coffee themes projects this week. I picked up this fun bag tag in Hawaii when I was there earlier this year before the pandemic brought everything to a screeching halt.

I will post the winner on Sunday May 31 and I will be adding some other fun items to the winner's package.

That is it for now.....thanks for stopping in and checking out my blog. Stay healthy and safe.

You cannot beat Paper Smooches for the cuteness factor. I just love this image.....this birdie looks like my Quaker parrot Max who passed away nearly 2 years ago now. I miss that little rascal. To see all the cute stamps and dies from this awesome company click HERE

I am entering this card in the current Paper Smooches Thank You Challenge 

That is it for now. My husband is off today making this a four day weekend for him. So we are going to go out and take a ride down the coast. Take care and stay safe.

Bears Family Day

Here is my third page that I created as a Guest Design Team Member for Lasting Memories. The challenge all month has bee Three Things. The three things that I had to use on this week's challenge was gingham/checked or plaid paper, hearts and one or more tags. I loved making this monochromatic page featuring my son and beautiful granddaughters using REALLY old papers from my stash that coordinated perfectly. Don't you love that peach ombre background paper? It is a nearly vintage sheet from Studio Calico.

I used this sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap:

That is it for right now....I am hoping to get into my room and be creative today but I have spent WAY too much time online this morning. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Hi.....Miss You

I realized that the deadline for this challenge was midnight tonight so I got in my craft room this afternoon and after finishing a layout that I will share tomorrow I worked on this card. I am so happy with how bright and cheery it turned out. I seem to be making and sending a great number of missing you cards lately.....this social distancing is hard on me. I am a very sociable person but I am terrified of this virus so I stay home as much as possible. I will be glad when there is a safe and reliable vaccine available.

I made this card for the Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge

Paper smooches has the most adorable stamps and can check them all out at

That's it for now.....time to freshen up the place before the hubby gets home.
