Hello stampin' friends!

I'm excited to share with you, that I was offered to join the Tic Tac Toe Challenge Team and I graciously accepted. 

Jumping right into the is this weeks #TTTC115 challenge board....

I chose the diagonal column - DIE CUT, TWINE/RIBBON AND TEXTURE.

My card is featuring a retired Stampin' Up Set called Thoughts of Father. The image was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers. Next I used the Spellbinder Label 18 to cut out the main image. The sentiment was created with the JustRite DIY Times New Roman Font Set. For the "texture" I added the corrugated DP. At last I added the Ribbon, Button, Twine and small Silver Pearls.

Please swing by the Challenge Blog to view all the other fabulous creations the team has crafted! Hope we have inspired you to play along?!?

Wishing you a wonderful day! ~SL~

My inspiration came from the flowers and colors.

This card came together super quick...I stamped the gorgeous Flourishes - Hydrangea Set with Momento Ink before coloring it with various Copic Markers. I matted the main image with the PTI - Amethyst Allure CS. The sentiment is from the PTI - Thinking of You Mini Set. At last I added some Silver Pearls...voila!

Hello and happy day!

We are back with a sweet Inspired by Challenge theme....


I was inspired by the colors, the circle flower blanket and the big sentiment.

I just love using my Painted Petals Turnabout Toolkit from Concord & 9th. It's super versatile and it's perfect for this weeks challenge. I started out by scoring my card base. For my flower colors I used SU - Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette and Cool Caribbean plus PTI - Green Parakeet. The big "Hello" and "friend" sentiment are also from the Turnabout Toolkit. At last I added a few Silver Pearls...voila!

Hope you'll have a chance to play along? Thank you for stopping by! ~SL~

Happy Day!

Hope you are well and ready to craft with us, as we are featuring a brand new Inspired By Challenge....


My inspiration came from the lemons and the yellow color.

I had to surge high and low for an image.... and came once again across an old Flourishes Stamp Set that featured some "lemons". I decided to match it up with the fun PTI - Fruit Salad Sentiment Set. For a bit more interest I sparkled up the lemons with some SU Glitter.

Now it's your turn to dig out your fun stamp set to join us! Wishing you a wonderful day! ~SL~

 Hello and happy May!

We are back with a new Inspired By Challenge...

With Mother's Day right around the corner it's fitting that this weeks inspiration theme #IB173 is called"Celebrate Her"...

I was inspired by this weeks sketch, the flowers, the colors and the beautiful quote.

I dug once again through my beloved retired Flourishes stash and pulled out this beautiful flower bouquet "Summer Blossom" Set. I colored it with Copic Markers that matched the inspiration photo. I matched it up with the Flourishes - Motherly Love sentiment

Hope you will have the chance to celebrate this week with your mom and family!?! Enjoy :) ~SL~
