Stronger

Hope you are all having a spectacular Memorial Day weekend!! We are supposed to be getting some pretty good storms today, so I will let you know in a few days how mine was. ;)

Today I am sharing my card from the 365 Cards Saturday Challenge. The prompt is 
Sing Along Saturday:
Select a song that you listen to that makes you feel good and even motivates you to get things done. That will be the inspiration for your card!

I chose the song "Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson.

Unique You

Hello! It's my turn to share a project on the Market Street Stamps' blog today.

Market Street really has some great sentiments in a variety of amazing types and they are spread out in so many of their stamp sets. I made two sentiments from the Hippie Chic into one main focus of the card.


For this card I was inspired by the Moxie Fab Worlds' Splatter Technique Challenge. I think I have only done this technique once before, and I really liked how it had turned out, so I thought I would try it again.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget that there are two giveaways from last week that you have until tonight and tomorrow night to enter into. You can find them here and here.

It's the Big One!

Tonight is the last night of the week long Giveaways, and I think I saved the best for last. A special little mini kit for one of you out there!


Thank you all for all of the the kind words that you have continually given and especially last night for my baby girl. I am truly blessed!

Leave your comment below, and on Friday, one week from today, I will draw the winner. And, don't forget the giveaways from earlier this week. You can find those post here; Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Again, thank you so much!

Handmade by Abby, and ANOTHER Giveaway!

Hello to you on this fine Thursday evening! I feel like I have been running like crazy all day today, and I pretty much have been ;)

My littlest has been asking for a while now if I can post a card that she has made, and I finally decided to give in. She has gotten the crafty itch from me, and it's pretty nice, seeing as the oldest one almost has to be dragged kicking and screaming to to anything artsy {though she is coming around a little bit lately.}

As I was looking at what she has made, I have realized that I really must be rubbing off on her with the whole simple and clean thing. I know I am prejudiced, but I think I love this card!!


Now, for tonight's giveaway, I have gone back to a little something from Market Street Stamps. How about a Punched Tin background stamp and a So Happy set!!


You know the drill! leave your comment below and I will draw for the winner next Thursday. Here are links to the giveaways from earlier this week; Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday

And make sure to stay tuned tomorrow, for the last and biggest giveaway of the week!!!

You Simply Sparkle!

*** Go here if you are looking for my Market Street Stamps Paint the Town Color Challenge.


Okay, so it is night three of the Week of Giveaways, but I wanted to share another card before I show you what the next prize is. 

Here is another really simple card using very little. I have come to the conclusion that these are the types of cards that I am meant to make. Once in awhile I will step out of the box and delve into something more complicated, but for the most part, simple is just who I am!


I just started on the journey of making these beautiful fabric flowers, and I have some kinks to work out yet, but I really love how this one turned out. I think I am gonna be a flower making machine for the next few days!!

Now, on to the giveaway for tonight is some sweet Peachy Keen goodies. Before I ever became familiar with this company, these turtles made my heart skip a little beat. And what would a momma turtle and baby turtle laying on their backs be without the pretty clouds floating above them.


So make sure to comment below for your chance to win the stamps and I will draw the winners next Wednesday.

Don't forget to comment on Monday and Tuesday's prizes also!!

See you back here tomorrow!!

Chillaxin'

Hello! Today is a brand new Paint the Town Color Challange from Market Street Stamps and the colors are gorgeous!! Make sure to hop on over to their blog and join in the fun for your chance to win a great prize.


Here is my take on the swatch:


My melon color came out to be more like orange in the photo, but that's what I get for taking the picture at night and not with natural light, right?

I really had a lot of fun with this card! I imagined being on different beaches and taking neat shots of my flip flops in the sand. I also had a lot of fun with all of the doodling around the edges!!

Trick! Or is it TREAT??

So, I really, really, really love Halloween, and when all of the publications were calling for their October/November submissions last month, it gave me the perfect excuse to feed my obsession! Neither of these cards obviously got picked up, but that just means I get to share them sooner {even if Halloween is still months away!}


And now for the best treat of the evening, here is giveaway #2!! A collection of my very favorite inky things!


Make sure to leave a comment below for tonight's chance and don't forget about last night's prize pack. I will draw for each prize one week from when it was first posted!

Why yes, I did say GIVEAWAY!!!

Okay, so since I have been such a slacker lately here on the blog {and I just really love to give things away} I have decided to do a week long give away!!! 

Each day until Friday, I will post a new giveaway and then on the correlating day next week, I will announce the winners. Does this sound good to you? 

Just leave a comment below and on Monday, May 21st, I will draw a winner for the pictured prize below:
6 Market Street Minis!!!


I will see you back here tomorrow with another prize pack and a project!!
