I could sure use some sun...

I think that is why I just can't get enough of this line from My Mind's Eye. I think I have officially used up every last bit of it that I had. It has done nothing but rain, rain, rain and rain a bit more here. I am over it. Spring seriously couldn't come fast enough for me.

Sit back and get ready...lots of cards to share with you in this post. Here we go...

Products: Star die Spellbinder's, metal clip Tim Holtz, Stamp Papertrey Ink, Metal studs Basic Grey

My daughter had a case for these owls...I can't wait to sneak it in her lunch soon.

Products: Floss DMC, Dies Spellbinders, Glitter stickers Sassafrass, Tree branch hand cut

Products: Glitter tape Scor-Tape, Stamps Studio G

Check out the doily on this next one. That is cut using a die from Papertrey Ink. Such amazing detail huh? I will be using the heck out of this one!

Products: Ribbon American Crafts, Die and Stamps Papertrey Ink, Ink Jenni Bowlin, Pearl Prima

Products: Felt and stamp: Papertrey Ink, Brad Bo Bunny, Jewels Doodlebug Inc., Floss DMC

and the last one for you today...the ribbon isn't this bright in person, but dang it is BRIGHT here! ack!
Products: Stamps and Dies Papertrey Ink, Doily from craft store (you can't tell the difference between this doily and my die cut one above can you?)

The good news??? I'll be seeing sun soon. Next week is the Spellbinder's Design Team retreat in Arizona...ahh life is good, and to make it even better I'm heading down a few days earlier with my daughter and we'll be spending some time with my parents and staying a little later to spend more time with them. My daughter will be staying with them the whole time I am with Spellbinder's. Oofta, she'll be getting so spoiled and loving every minute of it!

I should have one more post for you this weekend before I leave. See you then!

I'm in love...

with My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy boy line right now. I've now made two layouts and four cards with the line. One of the layouts I shared with you in the previous post, in this post I'll be sharing two of the cards with you. One layout and two of the cards will have to wait until the next post as we are on Spring Break right now and even though I brought my camera and computer with me, I forgot to bring the connection cord with me!

This first card I made for a sketch challenge over on the My Mind's Eye blog...

Had some misting fun on this one, used some die cut Spellbinder star dies as masks. The die cut label and stamp (aqua polka dots) are from Papertrey Ink.

This next card was just for fun...

Background label was from a Papertrey Ink die and the felt star and paper stars were cut using Spellbinder star dies. 

Off to enjoy some more bonfires and baseball with my family!

I'm still alive....

Sorry for the long absence! A couple of weeks ago we flew to New Orleans spent a day there, then headed out on a 7 day Western Caribbean Cruise and then spent another day in New Orleans. Since then I have just been playing catch up. It was such a fun trip, so much more fun than I had anticipated. We weren't sure how four kids on a ship for 7 days would go...but it went great. I think the kids all being 5 and older now has made traveling so much easier for the parents.  We've already been scoping out what ship and itinerary our next cruise will be. The kids are eyeing the NCL Epic and who can blame them when you see the pool/slide area. Even I would have fun on that!

I have a little Clear Scraps to share with you today. It features an XL Scallop 12x12 Clear Scraps shape and some yummy My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy! Oh, and yes......some GLITTER! My all time favorite embellishment. I know many hate or are scared of glitter....NOT me. :)

I adhered the glitter using a 1/4" Scor-Tape. 

Other Products:
teal letter stickers: Sassafrass
number stickers: October Afternoon
Transparency: Glitz Designs
Jewels: K&Company

Thanks for taking a peek. I have a handful of cards to share with you on my next post.

Enjoy your day!
