Miss You

Sunday is my rest day from working out, my PASSION, and the day that I have more sitting-around time to think about things. Today I started thinking about my best friend from back in Indiana, and how much I miss her! Then she sent me a text about a project she was working on and I missed her even more! So I decided to make her a card. I used the sketch challenge from Paper Craft Crew and the color challenge from Color Throwdown.

I decided to pull out my Stampin' Blends to color with today. I hardly ever use them but I just ordered all of the new ones this weekend so I figured I better use the old ones so I felt less guilty about my purchase! 🤣 I don't know how to do shading correctly so I need to watch some tutorials, but I did have fun playing with them! I used Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin' Blends and Gray Granite ink.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

Post-Vacation Blues

We just got back from an amazing beach vacation, and I have to say, I have the blues! Not necessarily because I didn't want it to end, but more so because it means that summer is nearing an end!  I enjoy having the kids home from school, not worrying about homework and bedtimes, and being able to spend more time together as a family. I'm sad that in just over two weeks we are going to be back to schedules and busy days. Such is life though, and we are going to make the most of these next few weeks!

Today is the first time in a LONG time that I've sat down to post a card! I've made some cards, but just haven't taken the time to share them! I really love the card that I made today though, because it reminds me of our beach trip. I made this one for my friend Jennifer who was so kind to take care of our cats and get our mail for us while we were away. I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the picture inspiration from TIME OUT Challenges


This is the first time I have inked up this High Tide stamp set from Stampin' Up! and it was really fun to play with!  I used Crumb Cake, Balmy Blue, Blueberry Bushel and Early Espresso ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock.

Thanks for looking! Have a great day! ❤
