Stuffed with (Pals) Happiness


I don’t know about you, but this card has Fall Happiness written all over it!  The vibrant colors of the Color Me Autumn DSP are spot on for Thanksgiving/Fall cards.  I made this card as a swap for my Circle of Pals team’s get together and also entered it into the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 238.


The layout was a life-line for me because I had been so busy for the previous two weeks that I procrastinated until the morning of the get together to make the swap cards.  Thankfully it was only three cards.


Shari applied the coloring technique to the black and white feathers in our Back to Black DSP (133700).  It gives the paper an entire new dimension and pizzaz.


Believe it or not, this little beauty is actually the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies from the Holiday Catalog.  It’s an envelope made for mini cards, gift cards, or stash a little cash inside of it.


Va-va-va-voom!  This precious rich razzleberry makes me crave plums…LOL.  Below are just a handful of my Pals and whether you want to hang with us as a hobby demonstrator you are more than welcomed to join my Pals on our next journey.  Read more about joining my team (I WANT YOU TO) even if it’s just to get a discount on fabulous product or to go for the gusto and make some extra cash.  A Circle of Pal member isn’t just a down-line member we are friends first, stampers second!

I do have one request…visit my Circle of Pals on their respective sites (Facebook or Instagram) and leave them comments about their beautiful cards…or just leave a comment for them below.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Golden Stars

Fab Fave badge

Gold Star2

Star light star bright, the first gold star I see tonight… yes, I made this up, but just look at the vibrant yellow golden stars in all their beauty right in front of your eyes.  I’m mostly a white gold kind of girl, but the Fab Friday 50 crew’s card challenge was gold and Whisper White.  Please leave a comment below and tell me if you heat emboss or if you would like to learn.

I normally don’t do too many color challenges because as I’ve said before and I’ll say it again – I’m NOT crafty! But that’s what I love about card making, everyone Creates and Shares everything – LOL.

Gold Star

Now let me tell you how I put it together – I stamped the stars with Versamark and heat embossed it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss.  I applied the rhinestones to give it that extra sparkle that every girl loves (diamonds truly are a girl’s best friend – LOL).  I then stamped the BE MERRY on vellum paper and can you believe I adhered it with Crystal Effects!?  I dabbed on a tiny bit of the glossy lacquer behind the stamped image and it worked perfect on the vellum!   I’ve listed the items I’ve used below so that you too can replicate the card.

A Sweet Pink & Green Favor

Baby Pink Box4

I was asked for a favor (no pun intended)… LOL.  So I decided to make a dozen of these cute little favors for a party.  What better way to show off our new cute little Curvy Keepsake Box that requires absolutely NO adhesive what soever!

Baby Pink Box2

All you need is a little stamping and bam it’s done!  I’ll be making Christmas Keepsake Boxes in Real Red cardstock for a Christmas vendor fair in November.  I’ll be sure to let you see it first.

Smile, You’re On Candid Camera

Just Because

Oh My Gosh!  I’m so beside myself!  There are times when we all have to say a little good about ourselves.  I think I’ve finally found my style!!!  Wait, did I just say that!?  Yayyyyy….I’m so happy with this card and I didn’t even have to over think it!  That’s why I love sketch challenges!  Boo-ya!

Just Because

I am in LOVE with this designer series paper too!  Oh My Gosh, I keep using exclamation points all over this post!  It’s just a sign of how happy I am with the result of this card.  I’m going to share a little secret—-I often keep the cards I make because I’m afraid they aren’t going to be appreciated!

The problem with giving a greeting card is that Hallmark (my competitor) makes it easy to spend anywhere from $4.99 to $8.99 on a greeting card.  I still can’t figure out why someone would pay that!!! (yes that sentence deserves three exclamation points!)

The solution is to sign up for one of my card classes (every first and third Friday of every month) and I will teach you in under an hour!

Don’t have an hour, yet want to show someone who you care more about them then buying them an EXPENSIVE store-bought card… get a kit I tell ya!  See them here.

Kits are a win-win solution.  You pay only $1.50 per card and the kit comes with EVERYTHING you need to put it together and the recipient will love it!  Why?  Because YOU made it with your own hands!  What other way to show someone how much you care about them!!!

My wonderful card is brought to you by Freshly Made Sketches 154.  Isn’t it such a lovely design?  I LOVE it (but you knew that already). HAHA

Believe in Butterflies


Who doesn’t love butterflies?  I dare you to tell me you don’t…LOL.  If you’ve ever met me you know I am a talker!  So much that I am often referred to as a Social Butterfly.  I must admit it because I am.  This reason is why I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the Elegant & Bitty Butterflies together.  One in Crist Cantaloupe and the other in Vellum daubed with Metallic Gold.  I added the rhinestone because I well, I just couldn’t help myself. =)


The sentiment is also stamped with the Metallic Gold on Whisper White and punch with the Word Window punch.  whenever I use the Word Window punch you will see the Modern Label punch right along with it.  The pair go hand in hand like sugar is to bubblegum.


Once again, the card sketch challenge is brought ot you by Creative Challenge Club #13.  If you haven’t joined them then I highly recommend you do. They are one of my top three challenge blogs.
