Sweet Dreams : Market Street Stamps

Good morning! Today is my day to share over on the Market Street Stamps Blog. I thought I would used this super cool Dreamcatcher designed by Miss Brenda Weaver. I LOVE the feathers she used in this set, but you have got to check out the other awesome images too!

I thought I would go for a fun, bright theme here. Normally, when I think of dreamcatchers and stars, I am thinking about bedtime. But for this card, I wanted to go with a "Go out and chase your dreams!" kind of theme. I wanted to make a statement, and "hopefully I pulled that off here ;)
Well, I hope you enjoy the rest of your day and I will see you back here soon!!

I'm late, I'm late!

Hello and welcome back for another Saturday challenge from 365 Cards! Today's prompt is "It's not too late!" Create a belated birthday card.
The stamps I used are from Peachy Keen Stamps' Happy Hour and With a Cherry on Top! sets.

It's kind of  hard to see, but I stamped a candle behind the sentiment in a pale pink. It is much more visible in person.

I am off to watch the big one at swim sectionals, wish us luck!!

Wild and Free

Just popping in quick again with another Market Street Stamps Market Mini that was released earlier this month called Wild. This one was also designed by Miss Stephanie Washburn.
It didn't show up in the picture very well, but I love, love, LOVE the sentiment that comes with that very pretty peacock feather: All good things are wild and free.

You're Fangtastic!

Just wanted to pop in quick with a spooky cute Halloween card!
This was made with another newly released Market Mini from Market Street Stamps called Fangstastic. This little cutie was designed by the very talented Miss Stephanie Washburn, fellow design team member over at Market Street Stamps.

Right now they have a special going on that only runs through the end of the day today.

Hope you all enjoy the end of your weekend!!

If the Broom Fits...

Hello! I hope you are all having another wonderful Saturday! I finally have some free time where I am going to craft away the day and then go have some fun tonight with a group of friends!! 
For today's project, I am here with another 365 Cards challenge. The prompt is  Letter of the Day: B! Use three things (images, items, colors, etc.) that start with this letter.
I chose to go with buttons, burlap and a broom!

I used the newly released set "Witching Hour" from Market Street Stamps, My Mind's Eye's "Lost & Found Halloween" 6x6 paper pad and "Lost & Found burlap trim, and Teresa Collin's Vintage Finds decorative buttons on the card.
I am also entering it into the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, Over the Edge.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!

You Rule!

Good morning all! Today I am back with a new challenge from 365 Cards. The prompt today is ATC 123: Create an Artist Trading Card (2.5"x3.5") with a school related theme.

The notecard background and the pencil are both stamps from the August Stamp of the Month by Peachy Keen Stamps. The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye's School Daze 6x6 2 Collection.
I hope you all have a great day!

Thinking of You

Hello! Hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday morning. I will be spending my day selling concessions and then helping my biggest little get ready for her first Homecoming dance. I can't believe how fast the time has gone by!!
Well today is a brand new Saturday challenge over on the 365 Cards blog. This is a super fun one!! Missed Opportunity: Look back on a challenge that you haven't participated in that you wish you had.
I chose to go with Day 186-Super Sketchy Sunday. I love to play with sketches, but never seem to remember to play along, or just get so wrapped up in other things that it just doesn't happen.
I used some super cute stickers from our sponsor this week, EAD Designs. They are from the set  Fall Friends.

The sentiment is from Market Street Stamps' Simple Salutations.

Peachy Keen Stamps: Anything Goes Challenge

Woohoo! It's another great challenge over on the Peachy keen Stamps Challenge Blog and this one is always a favorite!!

That's right! You can enter any kind of project you want with any kind of theme you want. 
I stayed up late last night working on my Copic coloring skills trying to squeak out any sort of mojo that I could for this challenge, but it just wasn't happening. The coloring isn't my best, but what can I do? It's practice makes perfect right??
Well, I tried with renewed spirit this morning for the rest of the card, and this is what I came up with. I am just loving this turkey! He just screams "Stick a fork in me, I'm done." to me, heehee!!

Don't forget about the October release party over on the Peachy Keen Connection tonight starting at 6pm CST. You get to see all of the new releases, check out what the design team has been up to with the images, and maybe even try your hand at some more challenges to try to win some pretty great prize…

Peachy Keen October Sneaks Day 3

So happy to see you again! Glad you made it back for the third day of sneak peeks. Peachy Keen Stamps' October release will finally be fully revealed tomorrow night at 6 pm CST over on their blog. You can join in on the release party over on the Peachy Keen Connection also and have a chance to win some fun prizes.
Now, on to my project for today. Again, I used both the October Stamp of the Month kit and the Peachy Picks kit, and made these wood harvest blocks. 

The cardstock, patterned paper, trimmings, buttons and bling are all part of this month's Peachy Picks kit, and the images are from the Stamp of the Month kit.
Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check out the other sneak peeks over on the Peachy Keen blog!!!

Peachy Keen October Sneaks Day 2

Welcome to day two of the Peachy Keen Stamps October Release Sneak Peeks!!!
I am having so much fun playing with this month's kits!! Both the Stamp of the Month and Peachy Picks are awesome beyond belief! I am going to be sharing some projects that are pushing past just the normal run of the mill cards that I normally produce for the sneaks, so keep your eyes peeled for the rest of the week.
I know that the Peachy Picks kit is sold primarily as a card kit, but there is so much more that you can do with this!! If you have been a follower of mine, you know my things run on the simple side for the most part, so these kits really jut go a long ways for me.
So sit back, relax and enjoy what is coming your way in the coming days!!

Also, don't forget to swing on by the Peachy Keen blog to check out some more great peeks!!

Peachy Keen October Sneaks Day 1!

Hello and welcome to the first day of sneak peeks for the October release of the Peach Keen Stamp of the Month and Peachy Picks kits!! All this week there will be sneaks and peeks of the new stamps and papercrafting kit that will lead up to the big reveal on Friday night at 6 pm CST over on the Peachy Keen Stamps blog and the Peachy Keen Connection.
Can you believe Thanksgiving is already coming up next month? I can barely believe it's not Summer anymore! Though the days are getting cooler, I am loving the earthy smell in the air and the warm bright colors of Fall in the trees and on the ground.
Here is a layout I made of last year's trip to the local corn maze. The papers and embellishments in the Peachy Picks kit work perfectly with the Stamp of the Month kit as usual. Doesn't Kathy do wonders with these stamps?!?

Here is a close-up of the colored corn I added to the layout.

And I also made a card. I love this raffia that is included in the Peachy Picks! It makes beauti…
