Great News


Yes, I am doing a Happy Dance!
I got this in the mail yesterday.

And this is what was on page 107

Oh you can't see what is says.

Here you go.
Yes that is me!

This month they have a stiletto as the template to decorate. Now that will be fun, don't you think?

Here is a video of me bragging even more. LOL 

Boy I really needed some good news this week.  It was a ruff one.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful crafty day.

Raisin Boat Challenge #12

It is time for another fun challenge over at the Raisin Boat Blog.  This month, our challenge is to make a Fourth of July card, decoration, invitation or party favor.  You have until July 12 to link your creations below.

For this month's challenge, you can again use any stamp set you have (you don't have to limit your entry to Raisin Boat stamps). Use any stamp set you wish for this challenge, but if you use a Raisin Boat stamp set, it will count as two entries. That gives you twice the chance to win a stamp set of your choice!

Why not let Raisin Boat help you make your special party and celebrations more festive with something homemade by you?  There are many sets to choose from. Two of my favorite sets are:

Red White and Blue
Red White and Blue
And remember, you can either buy OR rent Raisin Boat sets -- no guilt in using a set for just one project, such as this Fourth of July project!

We look forward to your Fourth of July project for this challenge!

Here is the card I created for the challenge.
The stamp sets I used are  Red White and Blue, and  Corrugated Box.  I stamped the Corrugated Box with Memento Danube Blue ink on BHC Red Delicious cardstock. The stars are white embossed with Zing white embossing powder on BHC Varsity Blue cardstock.  The ribbon is Organic Cotton Strip Ribbon.

Be sure to link up your creation at the Raisin Boat Blog  Challenge #12. I look forward to seeing what you are creating for the 4th of July.

Happy Crafting,

Tuesday Morning Sketches #202

Hello There, I found a new challenge blog. Well the gals at Raisin Boat found it for me. It is called Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week Raisin Boat is sponsoring the challenge.  I have been so busy I didn't get to this until today and I really needed to make a Father's Day card for my husband. 
Here is the sketch. I know I will use this again. 

Here is my card.

Products used:
Raisin Boat Stamp: Get the Net
Raisin Boat Cardstock: Urban Blue, Varsity Blue, Sky View, Brighton Beach White
Accessories: Memento Ink Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers, and Viva Decor Perlen Pen Magic Transparent.

All the products can be purchased at Raisin Boat. I really love that Perlen Pen Magic Transparent. It is a lot of fun to use to make water. The waves were cut with my Silhouette.

Head over to Tuesday Morning Sketches and check out all of the wonderful sketches.

Thanks for stopping,

YPP Flower for June

Hello, Boy it has been too long since I have posted. Life has gotten in the way. I am counting down the days until my MIL's house is sold. Only a few more weeks.
Anyway I joined 7 swaps this month at Your Paper Panty. I have finished 4.  the tage swap was quick and easy. Just 3 styles and 6 of each. It was really fun.

The next picture is of the flowers for the flower swap. This was really out of my norm but I really had a lot of fun. We were to make Fluffy Flowers and I loved making them.
Here is the video of how I my the flowers.
The first flower was inspired by Vicky from TryHeart67 on YT. She has a great tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by!
I would love to know what you think.
