Beary Best... MFT Stamps: Clean & Simple

Happy Saturday everyone.. today I had the best time at the Lawn Fawn/Kathy Racoosin coloring event. What a great time with lots of crafters. It was awesome.

I created this card yesterday for the My Favorite Things SuperStar 2019 Card Design Challenge. Maybe this is my year, we will see. 

First up we have the Clean & Simple card design. As you all know I am not really a clean & simple card designer so this challenge is really a challenge for me. I always want more and more on my cards LOL.  So this makes the challenge fun doing something you don't normally do.

This card was created using My Favorite Things: Beary Big Adventure and the Star Celebration stencil. The images are colored with Copic Sketch markers and the stars in Ranger Oxide inks. Like I said simple today. This is one of my favorite stamp sets. I just can't get enough of this cute bear. I gave this image some fun white gel pen action. You know me and my gel pen. I will not tell you how many of these pens I own. teehee..

I leave you with a few photos from the event today....

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great rest of the weekend.

YAY it is Friday.... who excited? I know I am but then again I always say that. Hey who doesn't love the weekends, I mean come on. These are the days you get to do whatever you want. I mentioned it yesterday but I get to go and hang out at the Lawn Fawn warehouse with lots of crafty people. I can't wait to see Kathy Racoosin and Kelly. 

So I am ending the week with a fun Halloween card. I just got this Hello Bluebird: Halloween Fun stamp set and just had to ink it up right away. I also used one of there dies and Bella Blvd: Spooktacular paper pad. Lets not forget the Oxide inks... of course, Right?

Lot of coloring with Copic Sketch markers and lots of foam adhesives to give all the fun images some dimension. I just kept adding more and more to this card. AND I did not even use all the colored images that I thought I would. Should have made the card bigger. LOL

Well this will be all until next week. I hope to have lots of cards from my crafty fun this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a wonderful and blessed weekend!

Happy Spooky Halloween...

YAY it is almost Friday and again I have Halloween on the brain thanks to Reverse Confetti. I seen this new challenge yesterday and well got to stamping and inking and this is what I came up with. 

Don't you just love these little Halloween cuties? I love that this set had some spooky trees and a cool spooky fence. Totally fun to create with. I fussy cut all the images as I wanted the trees and fence to have all the openings cut out. My hand was shaking when I was done, I think it was from holding those little scissors. LOL 

Well that is all for today. I hope you all have an awesome weekend. My husband and I was going to make a big decision this weekend. I will share later.... stay tuned.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have an awesome day!

With Sympathy...

Happy Hello everyone.. today I am on the Pink & Main Blog HERE and I am sharing a card I created using the newly released Pink & Main: Forever in My Heart stamp set, Sentiment Strip Die set, Lakeside and Salon Sparkle Sheets, Kindness Floral stamp set (previously released). I am loving the new release so many fun ways to create with it. Who doesn't love some great sentiments. I could use it for days and not run out of fun sentiments for my cards.

First time posting this week. I have been spring cleaning, although it is not spring I am calling it that. LOL It is always good to get rid of some old stuff that is just sitting around and taking up space. I will admit that I have a decorative pillow addiction. My husband is always like another pillow and I am like YES they are pretty.

Well I think that is all for now. Make sure to head on over to the Pink & Main Blog HERE and leaving me a lovely comment.

How has your week been going? As for me it has been good. I started working out every morning. I am doing aerobics at home. Yes aerobics... does anyone do those anymore? That might give my age a little. It feels good to be working out again. I have been lazy and well I am not getting any younger. I always tell my husband that I need to work on my wobbly bits.... he just laughs and tells me he loves me how I am. What a great husband right?

That is my excitement this week.

Have a fantastic rest of the week!
