Love this Christmouse!


So excited about all the fabulous inspiration happening at the Timeless Twine blog this week in our Lil' Inker Designs and Timeless Twine Cross Promotion!  So excited with the ADORABLE image sent to me by Lil' Inker Designs that I just HAD to make a second card!  Really, I HAD to!

Check out what I did with some Basic Grey Aspen Frost paper!



I used some gorgeous Timeless Twine in Key Lime Sorbet paired with the Lil Inker's Snow Mouse Stamps and the Stitched Scallop Border Die.  That FABULOUS doily is from Bella Creationz.  You should check out all the yummy goodness there.  That happy little mouse just makes me grin....I can't stop stamping him!

Go SEE what the rest of my Twine-Ista teammates and what the Lil' Inker Designs team did TOO!  Go SEE!

Craftily yours,

Karen

Happy Birthday, Donna!

My 3 Girl JAM DT sistah is celebrating a VERY special day today.  Oh ya, it's her birthday!  And it's a VERY special day!  This lady has lived, loved and experienced 50 beautiful years!  Such a sweet and beautiful soul, she is.

Donna, this one's for you!  If your day is half a century as wonderful as you are, then it's going to be really great!


Craftily yours,

Karen

Jar Full of Christmas

I really love Christmas, don't you?!  Have you started your cards yet?  Only about 4 more months until Christmas.  Avoid the rush!!  Join us for our embossing challenge at Christmas Card Challenges.  The challenge is optional, but the fun is not!


The embossing folder I used is from Spellbinders (I think!), and the stamp is from Unity Stamp Company.

Craftily yours,

Framing Daisy

I'm excited to be showing a project on the Cut at Home blog today with the LO below.  I used a picture of my MIL's bull mastiff (and my husband) to create a lay-out.  (The dog's name is Daisy!)

For this project, I used Tim Holtz Ideology Wallflower Stash paper (which is seriously GORGEOUS!) and the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Eight, but most any of these fabulous nesting dies would work.  Here's a close-up of my project.  Full details, a video and more close-up pictures can be found at the Cut at Home blog.

I'll give you my heart

Today, I'm sharing a card on Linnie Blooms blog that I made using a pennant and a heart inked up through a couple stencils with TH distress ink.  These shapes are from the Linnie Blooms - Set of Canvas Dies - Shapes.  Since it's Friday, I'm also linking up with Friends with Flair!  Happy Friday everyone!



I had finished with the card and was stamping the sentiment when I bobbled and rocked my block.  Oh NO!  I ended up swiping on some black ink around the image to hide it, and I actually like the look.  It sorta gives it movement!  The paper is from PB&J from Basic Grey, and the stamp is Unity Stamp Company {Sense of Wonder}.  I finished it off with some 3 Girl JAM lace and ribbon.  The inside of the card says, "I'll give you my heart."  I gave this card to my husband for our 6th anniversary earlier this month.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  If you have a minute, check out:

Flower HI!

ToDaY, I'm sharing a sweet card on the 3 Girl JAM blog that fits right into this month's 3 Girl JAM Challenge to do something for back to school or to use a writing instrument w/ ribbon.  I chose writing instrument!

I used papers from my scrap-pile, some yummy 3 Girl JAM flower ribbon and a stamp-set from Paper Smooches {Just a Note}.  I finished it off with a doily and some UmWow Studio confetti circle chip covered with Liquid Pearls.



Did you know that you can purchase 3 Girl JAM goodies for a cool 10% off using code KN10?!  Or win some if you join our challenge!

Craftily yours,

Christmas Caroler

This week's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges is a color challenge.  I decided to finally open my Tim Holtz carolers die that I won at a retreat in March.  Love the image combined with this pretty paper from Echo Park (This and That).

Always, at Christmas Card Challenges, the challenge part is optional.  We just want to see all of your lovely creations!  Join us, won't you!?

Craftily yours,

Karen
