Thinking of you

Hey all. Quick post today.
sharing for the 

The image for this card came from Etsy
I think
I'll change it later when I'm able to look it up. 
Simple card
so I bought the image a while ago,  but haven't used it yet. I wanted to use it for this challenge,  but my printer is on the fritz. I, instead,  traced it and added bits of color.  Adorable right? 
That's about it

Baby celebration

Participating with
I decided to use this challenge to get my mojo going.  I'm supposed to be creating some baby shower prototypes.
Here one I created.
Cute right?
random mini clothes pins
hand drawn 'it's a' celebration
I still have the dies uncut from each other, so I used them as my background for the card. I just die cute the alpha pattern & the letters stay in place because the papers pretty thick.  I've seen this technique done before on Danielle flanders blog.  I watercolored the background a bit.

The stars are random punches I have.

Live for Adventure/ Love the Moment explosion boxes

 Sharing for a second time today.   I haven't posted any explosion boxes in quite some time.  I make them frequently for the craft show's we do.  they actually sell very well.  Recently, it popped into my head that the boxes I make from Teresa Collins collections normally sell well.  The coordination and uniqueness of the patterns, colors, themes, etc. really stand out.

Below are two boxes that I've made several variations of, and I just love them every time.

This box uses the nine and co collection, and actually a sheet of the Tinsel and co, because at the time I couldn't find the gold sheet that comes in the nine and co collection. 
The color combo is the funnest.  That's not a word right?  I'm using it anyway.  Lol.   
This one has pockets, in the front for tags/photos. I usually put them in the back of the box.  I created the pocket with vellum.  with ever box, I try to incorporate something different than the last, especially since some are the same materials.
This box below is made from the Teresa Collins Memorabilia collection.
Another one I'm in love with.  The colors and patterns... Awesome.
Pretty much the same concepts, different colors/ theme. 

Congrats Grad

 Quick post today.  I've been super busy with orders lately, no time for the real fun stuff.  random crafting.  anywho.  This quick card is for
It's that time of year.  Graduations are upon us.

Happy Mother's day SSS anything goes challenge

Well, good morning to ya'll.  Sharing today for 2 challenges.
So, I bought a flower die set:
When I saw the dies, I absolutely knew I had to have them.  I mixed and matched and came up with the below card.  Love love love it.  there's normally no plan or template for color, or anything with my cards, I just fly by the seat of my pants.

Simple enough, I just water colored the leaves, left the flowers (off) white watercolor paper.  Some of the leaves we're white white (2 different papers).  I actually like the mix of white/ off white. 
Oh, & the large dots are from
I wanted to use the teal & black from the models dress, but got green... lol, but I guess it worked out.


Thanks for stopping by

Grace of God

 Just sharing quickly.  Yesterday's message at church was "Prove the Grace of God in your life"
Very good message.

So when I got home, in an effort to continue to practice my hand lettering, I whipped this up.  Love how it turned out.  Since I'm not adept at actual calligraphy, faux is perfect for me.  script, then adding thickness to the down strokes of the letters.  Anywho, there it goes.
