I used the Imagine stamp from Market Street Stamps newest release. 
I was messing around with some of my Distress Ink Stains from Tim Holtz and came up with this:
I will share how I did it soon, but have to get all settled from our vacation first.

Have a great day!!!

Let it Snow!

I don't know about you all, but I am ready for a nice cooler day! {Not snow, but maybe a good 10 to 20 degrees cooler ;)}
So this was supposed to be posted yesterday for the 365 Cards Saturday Challenge, but apparently that never happened and I didn't catch it until late.
This week our sponsor is DRS Designs.
The prompt for today is COLD

Today is another wonderful challenge day for 365 Cards!  Today's prompt is My Girl: Create a card ideal for a little girl using at least 3 images or items that you might associate with being "girly."
What came to my mind right away when I thought of "girly" was pink, flowers, and jewels!

Market Street Stamps Sneak Peek Day 1

Tonight I get to share a sneak at the newest release from Market Street Stamps. I am overly giddy with this month's release! Market Street is introducing a brand new line of stamps featuring art from Kim Geiser! You can learn more about Kim on her blog, Persimmons Studio.
Kim is bringing a whole new flavor with this her line, and I am having so much fun playing around with these stamps!!! I have for surely stepped out of the box, and I am loving it! They are making me think in new {new for me!} ways!!

It's a Peachy Peek!!

I hope you all have been enjoying your sneaks so far of the Peachy Keen Stamps Design Team!
 Just in case you might not be familiar with what I am talking about, I will give you a little synopsis!
Every month Kathy, the owner and illustrator of Peachy Keen Stamps, designs a fabulous 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheet of stamps that includes faces, images and sentiments. And she really knows how to deliver! Month after month the sets just keep getting better and better!! But not only does she design just the Stamp Kit if the Month, she also designs add-on sets that mesh perfectly with the main kit. These can be purchased with or without the main kit, but who wouldn't want them all?
We also have a wonderful card kit that is coordinated around these stamps called the Peachy Picks! Each month the kit consists of a 6x6 paper pad, 9 sheets of 8 1/2  x 11 inch cardstock paper, at least 3 yards of trim and various embellishments.
Both of the following cards were made using the June Stamp Kit of the M…

Hey Good Lookin'

Hello and welcome back for another Saturday Challenge for 365 Cards!  This week we have been sponsored by Heidi Stock Designs. We has some pretty awesome digital patterned paper that she sells in her Etsy Shop. The pack that I am using on my card is Beachy Chic.
The prompt for today is Sketch in Reverse. I designed the card and Pam designed the sketch from my card. 
That's one of the great things about this craft. You can draw such inspiration from other people's work without just copying it item for item!
