Funky Ovals

Happy Thursday! I couldn't sleep so I thought I would do a little crafting in between working. I wanted to make an oval card, but wouldn't you know I couldn't find any of my actual plain oval die cuts. So I just used what I could find. LOL! Super simple and all glitter! LOVE it! I've been hoarding the glitter papers forever!! Love them!

Have a great day!
Hugs & Smiles!

Stamps: NONe

SC483 | Quilted Heartfelt Thanks

Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone is have a blessed week! Tonight my hubby and little guy passed out at the same time! LOL! So I decided I would go ahead and try todays SplitcoastStampers challenge! :) Wednesday's are sketch challenges so I decided it would be fun.

I have been obsessed with the quilting technique Dawn McVay shared with us... I believe it was earlier this week. LOL! My brain is gone. I decided to try it with 1"x1" squares and on a smaller scale. I love how it turned out!!  A super fun technique that is simple! :)

I hope you have a lovely evening!!

I couldn't sleep last night so I got up and checked on the SCS (Splitcoast Stampers) website to see if todays challenge had been posted. Sure enough the color challenge was there so I decided to try and stamp myself to sleep. LOL!!! I ended up creating two cards for the challenge. :) I hope you like them!!

A True Friend

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!! As a photographer my weekends are always crazy and filled with amazing sessions! :) So Monday is a time for relaxing or sleeping in my case today. Maybe it's the rain that has made me so sleepy today. LOL!

I stamped this card a few days ago and thought I would share. I found this huge flower stamp in my old Stampin' Up! collection! I absolutely love it! I stamped it on kraft cardstock in white ink. Then used my brightest copic markers to color in the image. I also added some wink of stella glitter pen to the top of the image to make it extra sparkly and beautiful! The sentiment is from Mama Elephant!

I hope you love it! Have a great week!
Hugs, Ash-

Butterfly Beauty

Happy Friday! I decided to go through some of my very old favorite stamps. I found these beautiful butterflies. Honestly I can't even remember what this stamp set is called. LOL! It is from back in 2004 by Stampin' Up! I can't believe I've been stamping for over 10 years! Crazy! The beautiful sentiments are from Mama Elephants stamp sets. 

I used some new inks by Studio Calico! They are amazing at generation stamping!!! :) 

Have a great day!! 

Hugs, Ash-
