Happy TGIF!

My creative juices were flowing with the newest Inspired By Challenge - Pumpkin Spice #145....

Here is the inspiration photo.....

My card was inspired by the wooded background and the colors using gray, kraft and the yellow.

The main image on my card is from "The Greetery" - Mimosa Musing Set. The sentiment is from the Speed Tagging Christmas Set and I'm using the matching Tag Set and Die Set. I distressed my card on the edges and added the Ribbon along with some Sequins.

Happy Hump Day!

I love that it's Fall....the cooler mornings, the low humidity and warm afternoons are my favorites!

The beautiful display of colors from the Color Throwdown #613 inspired me to play along...

I bought the Lovely Leaves Set last year and I didn't even had a chance to ink it it came in handy for this challenge. I matched it up with the sentiment from the PTI - Giving Thanks Mini Set.

Hello friends!

Long time to no see and talk....

Hope you all survived the holidays and had a great start into "2020" ?!?

Ours was a whirl wind of sad, fun and very exciting events...first we had to put down our beloved boxer boy "Luke"... (he was almost 12 yrs) it was heartbreaking for sure :(.....

On a happier note, our youngest daughter Miriam celebrated her 15th birthday, our oldest daughter graduated early with her BBA in Marketing, then it was Christmas and before we knew it, our oldest daughter had a job offer that will be taking her to Houston, TX - which is about 4 hours from the meantime we have done lots of driving....finding an apartment, furniture etc. and now we are in the last phase of finally moving her into the new place!

Needless to say that my crafting has once again taken the back burner...but it's all good and I finally had a little "ME" time!

When I saw the fabulous sketch from CAS(E) THIS SKETCH #355 I knew I had to play along...

For my card I used a mixture of older stamp sets from PTI, MFT and Stamping Up. The DP is also from PTI and at last I added some Clear Sequins.

Thank you for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful day! ~SL~


It's time for a new Inspired By ... Here is this weeks #IB297 inspiration photo along with a sketch... I was inspired by the beach (san...
