One more entry for the Hero Arts Stay Crafty "By The Sea" Challenge. I'll have to give my youngest daughter a big hug for letting me borrow her cute stamp and die set. (Course she know where all my stamps are too....wink). Thanks for stopping by on this very hot day in Alabama...Remember to stay cool...I'm heading out to the pool in a few minutes with a good book!

My youngest daughter recently bought this cute Hero Arts stamp and die set at Tuesday Morning's. She was sweet and let me borrow it for the new Hero Arts Stay Crafty challenge of "By The Sea." I had such fun with it, I ended up making four different cards with this set. This is the first one I made with it. I cut the waves and sun with my Silhouette Cameo and patterns from their design store. I hope you are staying cool and enjoying the summer. I have lots of beautiful flowers blooming but with this heat I'm having to get up EARLY each morning to water all of them. Thanks for stopping by and have a cold drink on me!
Enjoying the air conditioning in my craft room today since it way too hot to be outside. The new challenge at Jingle Belles is called "The Man With The Bag." The Belles want a card with Santa on it. Back several months ago, I caught a great clearance sale at Hobby Lobby with dies and stamps over 70% off. I got a Santa and word die set by Momento which was perfect for the Santa challenge. The stamped sentiment is by Concorde & Nine. Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay cool.

The new Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge went up yesterday. This one is "T is for Tags." I used one of the sets I selected when I won a gift certificate from Topflight Stamps during the Spring/Summer Coffer Lovers Hop. How fun the Miss Dee images and sentiments are by AALL & Create! I love during funny cards and they are perfect! I used the set called Cougar Dee.
Don't faint but I have not been in my craft room in over a week! It's not that I didn't want to either. (Wink!)
I've been too busy with summer activities plus unexpected overnight guest (which meant extra cleaning and cooking). Finally managed crafty (or should I say therapy) time and created a card for the current Jingle Belles Ombre' Wonderland challenge. I have to confess the Ombre challenge gave me a hard time! I finally dug around in my box of paint chips from various stores and found a pretty one in greens. I was lucky and had two of these so I could die cut the squares plus the wavy die cut borders. I also found the clear Christmas sentiment stickers in my stash (are a Hobby Lobby brand package). So BAM, I had a card done quickly and one less to worry about when Christmas rolls around. Hope your day is going well and thanks for stopping by. Remember to stay crafty plus get outside to enjoy these pretty summer days! :)

After trying to get in my craft room all week, I finally managed to spend time in there today. Yay! I didn't get to "play" for very long but I did manage to relax, have fun and make a card. I am joining a few challenges with this card and used them to get my creative "mojo" going. The floral photo at the Inspiration Station Challenge really inspired me with the beautiful flowers. I used stamps (and dies) by Reverse Confetti. Here are the challenges this card will be blooming at:
