Some Saturday goodness:)

Happy Saturday!
I'm visiting my mom and childhood home this weekend because my youngest son has been at "grandma camp" for a week. I miss him so much when he's away! 

I've been having fun with my Casual Friday stamps though, now that I don't have an 8 YO wanting my attention every time I get a free moment ;)

Stamps used:
Casual Elegance
Zigs & Zags
Wonderful Words
Truth Is

For the second card, I did doodle a bit on the flower from Wonderful Words, before coloring it in with Copics, and I drew the leaves myself before cutting them out. I've been in a colorful mood lately and I think it's showing in my cards! *grin*

Craft Dash!

I'm playing along with the 20th Craft Dash today and boy is it fun!
I did go over the 10 minute time limit a bit, so perhaps that disqualifies me, but maybe they'll let it slide just this once:) It's harder than you think to get everything done and in place in less than 10 minutes!

Aren't the colors fabulous? Grey, tangerine, and hot pink!

It took me 10:11 to create this card, but it was fun every step of the way!
I love the Tropical Drinks set I have and it only took a few simple swipes of some Copics to add the color. The hard part was guessing what colors to grab and doing it quickly!
The sentiment was a no brainer as well! *chuckle*

If you want to join in, remember that the prize up for grabs is a $20 GC to Denami Design!

Thanks for stopping by,
Have a good one!

Monochromatic Birthday

Hello everyone! 
My life has been a whirlwind of activity lately, so I apologize for the few and far between posts.

This card was made for the Denami spotlight happening today. 
We are showcasing the Starry Burst
It's on sale all week for 10% off.

I know it's perfect for the 4th of July, but I wanted to make a birthday card, because after all, we deserve stars on our day of birth just as much as on a day of Independence, right? *smile*

Supples used:

Be sure to check out the Denami Blog for even more ways to use this fun Starry Burst stamp!
 The DT has lots of eye candy for your viewing pleasure:)

Pin-spired fun!

Here there! 
It's time for another round of Denami cards inspired by a photo on Pinterest:)

I LOVED this photo and took not only the color scheme as my inspiration, but that skull and crossbones made me think of pirates and that, in turn, made me think "nautical."

Supplies used:
