Flowers for you!

Hello friends!  I'm just amazed at how fast this month is going by!  Here it is another Tuesday and I'm back to share with you another card made with a fun Great Impressions Stamp.
Look at that adorable F631 Bear With Flowers!  He's bringing a pot of lovely spring flowers to the birthday girl!  I love the way the papers mimic the sky and ground with the blue and flowered papers.  I've also used the C458 It's Your Birthday stamp which I clearly love because I use it often!  I decided to mimic the dots on the orange paper but in brown on some of the other papers and I think it gave the card a fun, happy look!

Well, that is it for today!  I hope you'll stop by the Great Impressions Stamps blog to play along with our Blinged Birthday challenge!

I'm adding this to the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday - Sketch #413
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes 
Make My Monday Challenge - Garden theme, I'm inspired by the flowers in the mobile garden.  :)

Reach for your dreams!

Hello!  It is Tuesday of what promises to be a very busy week for me though I'm excited to stop in and share with you a card I made with some wonderful Great Impressions Stamps!  You may, or may not know that my youngest son is graduating high school this year so I, of course, have some graduation craftiness to make...starting with this fun card!
Don't ya just love it?  Clean, simple, and a bit abstract in the coloring, don't ya think?  I've used two GI stamps the Cap & Scroll E326, and Dreams B180.  I used a Real Red cardstock base and a white for the layer.  The grid detailing was made with t-ruler that I purchased recently.  I like the look!  It may just be one of my favorite Great Impressions cards!

Well, that is what I have to share with you today!  Thank you for stopping by and make sure you hop on over to the Great Impressions blog to check out and play along with our current challenge!

Good morning friends!  Today is Tuesday so I get to share with you a fun card made with a Great Impressions Stamp!
There are so many times that I'm just looking for a 'hello' card and this super cute image is perfect!  This is called Owllo (G553).  I thought it would be fun to use blue paper up top of the card and then I embossed it with a cloud embossing folder.  The yellow scallop is reminiscent of the sun and then of course the leaf paper to ground it a bit.

Well, thank you for stopping by today!   Make sure you stop over to the Great Impressions blog to check out our current challenge!

Listen here...

Hello and happy Great Impressions Tuesday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Thanks for stopping back by to see the fun card I made with Great Impressions Stamps this week!
Today I'm featuring a card made with a new stamp called Dog & Bird G534 and the Cloud Stencil.  I decided on no sentiment on the outside so I could use it for any purpose.  The papers I've had hanging around my craft room for awhile and are nice and bright so I thought they would be perfect!

Well, thank you for stopping by today!   Make sure you stop over to the Great Impressions blog to check out our current challenge!

Treat Yourself!

Now check out the cute card I made for the challenge:
I just think these bees are so stinkin' adorable so I knew I had to use them again with some super cute bling on the wings (that you can see below).  I've used E840 Friendship Bees and C467 Treat Yourself for this card.
Make sure you check out all of our challenge guidelines HERE and make sure you let me know you are playing along so I can be sure to visit your post to see your creation!

It's Your Birthday!

Good morning and welcome back to Great Impressions Tuesday!  Today I have a sunshiny birthday card for you that I really love!  It was also a very beautiful sunshiny day when I took the that!
This cheery card uses the following Great Impressions Stamps:  It's Your Birthday C458 and Spring Floral Border H228.   The patterned papers are from SU! and again, I happen to have some lovely yellow twine in my stash that matches so well and puts a perfect finish on the it when that happens!

Well, that is what I have to share today. THANK YOU so much for stopping by! I also would love for you to come and join our monthly challenge! If you use a stamp from the Great Impressions online store, please link it up in our Customer Gallery, too! Until next time, happy stamping, friends! :)

I'm praying for you...

Good Thursday morning all!  I hope you've been having a lovely week!  I'm out of town until Saturday but I wanted to share this with you today so I scheduled this post for you!  Yay! 
I recently applied for a position with the Imagine That! Digis by Kris Facebook team and was accepted...yay!  I've loved Kris's images for a long time (and used to be a part of her team a long time ago too!) and was eager to get back to playing with them.  I've used a pre-colored image here which is something I don't do very often but it was kinda fun!  The image, papers and sentiment are all from the Leesa's Sour Lemons kit.  The sentiments in this kit are wonderful so I hope you'll go check them out!  This time I didn't actually make this into a foldable card but more of a post card type of thing so the receiver will just flip it over to read the note.  It is fun and different that way, I think.

Well, I hope you have a wonderful day and rest of your week!  See you later!
