Where We Live

I am very fortunate to live in an area where people spend money to come and visit. The charming town of Flagler Beach still has a nostagic feel of old Florida to it. That is part of why we love it here but it sure can get busy in the summer. A few years ago Southern Living named Flagle Beach one of the Top Ten Best Kept Secrets of the South. Ha! Well the secret is out But we still love it here. For this page I used the Day 14 sketch from Paper Issues Stay Sketchy challenge'

I am also entering this page in the Lasting Memories Word Play Challenge #495
R -- rectangular photos
A- aqua colored paper
I -- ink on the journaling card
N -- Nuvo drops

I am entering this page in the Simon Says Stamps Anything Goes Wednesday Challenge as well.

That is it for now....thanks for popping in.

You're Awesome

I recently took advantage of an awesome sale at Sugar Pea Designs and ordered this fun sunburst cover plate and a stamp set that this sentiment "You're Awesome!" is from. I am entering this card in the Sugar Pea Designs Mix It Up Challenge 66. 
I was inspired by the colors on the inspiration photo. The sentiment is stamped in green with some green enamel dots as embellishments.

That is it for now. I will be back later to share some more craftiness.
Stay healthy, stay safe, stay home.

Missing You During This Social Distancing

This adorable image was a free download recently from Stamp Anniething. I printed it, colored it up and it is now on the way to the midwest with a series of 6 graphic novels for my 12 year old granddaughter Abby, I sent out a load of packages to the grandkids yesterday to give them something to occupy themselves during this stay-at-home time. I am sure they are all driving my sons a little crazy. I had the girls for a little over three weeks last summer and knew I had to plan something everyday to keep them busy. Boredom is not easy to deal with for anyone.

I used these colors (my favorites) for my card:

Happy Birthday, Friend

I have a dear friend with whom I have been friends nearly 50 years. Her birthday is coming up and I wanted to make sure that I remembered it with a card. Newton's Nook has a fun Inky Paws

Stay safe, stay healthy, stay home.

I had a lot of fun creating this card. I was excited when I found the avocado paper in my stash since I had a brand new stamp from Paper Smooches with an avocado on it. I hope my friend Suzanne likes avocados because this is on the way to her for her birthday nest week although it would work perfectly as a masculine birthday card also.

The current challenge at Paper Smooches is to create something happy. That is easy-peasy with their stamps because they always make me smile. I am entering this card in the Happy Challenge

Happy Birthday Sheri

I recently found a fellow card maker/crafter and lover of all things Lawn Fawn in my area and she and I have quickly become friends. It is her birthday today so I wanted to make a card for her and of course it had to be a Lawn Fawn card. I used 3 different stamp sets and Lawn Fawn paper (the pretty plaid paper) and the current sketch challenge for this card:

That is it for now....I think I will take the puppy out for a walk and then spend the afternoon in my craft room. It needs a good straightening up and I am feeling rather creative today.

Heartfelt Thanks

I have a good friend who is a nurse in the Detroit area at an assisted living facility that has been hard hit by the Covid-19 virus. I wanted to send her a card to thank her for all she is doing.

Check out their April 3rd blog post to get yours.

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Add Some Texture Challenge. I ran the orange cardstock through my Big Kick with a Swiss Dot embossing folder for texture and visual interest.
