Okay Crafty Friends,
Today I have a simple card for you all. As some of you know I'm moving yet again and pray this if my final stop. My Life has felt like a circus and when I seen this "Juggling Act" stamp by Sweet Stamps Shop I know I wanted to use this one. And seeing how my hubby and I have been juggling so much I found it fitting to send him this card. I really wanted to show my thanks and appreciation for all he do for our family.  I created this card using water color papers and distress marks. I just love creating with distress markers.

Enjoy!!

Up next is sweet Miranda over at Nana's Scrap Spot

Thanks so much for joining us for such a fun day!

MCT: You Are Amazing!!

Hello Crafty Friends,

I wanted to come and share some news and my newest creations. Well the news first. Me and the Hubby will be moving from Washington Sated. Our military life has come to end and were moving on to bigger things. I loved meeting some many other military families and making friends along the way. I found two of my best friend through this journey. I will truly miss all of the wonderful people I have met. I'm going to miss you all!! But happy we have social media to keep in touch.  I'm going to miss the awesome WINTER months in WA. I know why am I talking about winter well I love anything FALL or WINTER and WA is the place to be for these amazing season. Truly loved these season and its rainy days. So now I'm back in MS and  can you believe that the girls will be back in school on Thursday!!!! Wow I wasn't ready for school to start back up but hey I got the job done and excited all in one. My oldest is going into the 6th grade (where has that time gone =( it dose make me sad that my baby is growing up and my youngest is going into Kindergartner. Excited to see her spread wings. Lastly my final share a little off topic but for a good reason =) the last few days we've had some thunder storm. Can I just say I love the sound. I haven't heard a good thunder storm in a long time and yet it felt peaceful.  Which brings me to my creations.... 

My Creative Time has this fun challenge which end tomorrow. I really wanted to use the color for this challenge. But I don't feel I capture all the colors but felt I was as close I could get with what I have. I used MCT You Are Fabulous stamp set. And as I created this card the thunder was roaring back to back and I thought I would create a pattern using this water colored stamp. I thought that it would be perfect. And I'm so excited that the weather and these color brought out a beautiful creation.  

Here's the inspiration & color challenge

For my first card I used the smaller stamp "Sun and Moon" set. I love how MFP combine these to images together. And its such a beautiful and fun whimsical set. So my first thought was to water color my images. I later found this water color paper I created but didn't use and thought how perfect it would be. I add a mat in black around the image and sentiment so they would stand out. I love that sentiment and will either stamp graduation or birthday theme in the inside. 


For my next two card I used papers by Graphic 45. The first card I really wanted to use a lot of the scraps that was left over in this pack and thought it would be perfect to help bring out all the colors in my sun. And boy was I right (not to toot my own horn lol) I love how well the colors worked together. 


Up next I really wanted to feature this cream and black pattern papers so I used it over the base of my card. I cut strips of the star paper and used the back side to which has nursery rhymes on it. I add some lace for a more elegant look and gems to set the lace off. Over all I love the look and can't say which is my fav. 



We truly thank you all for hopping along with us this week. We hope you found lots of inspiration and want to create with these sets!!!

Hello Crafty Friends Welcome Back to day Three of MFP July Stamp Release. Today were featuring a fun snowflake stamp set. I love the elegant look of the snowflakes in this set. For my first card I keep things simple by heat embossing the large snowflake in a enchanted gold embossing powered and add gems. I love love this color of embossing powder and was so happy Pinque Peacock order it for me. 


For my next card I started by heat embossing the smaller snowflakes and then going back in with a blue sharpie. I created a banner and used some cord to create a bow. I really love the way this one turned out.

For my last card I really wanted to use this oh so cute embossing folder. And I thought how perfect would this be with MFP "I Love Snow" sentiment in this stamp set. I add some blue gems and did more heat embossing in sliver. I thought the colors worked so well together. Over all another fun stamp set by MFP.
