Hi everyone! The weather is finally starting to get warm here and it will actually be in the 90s today! Yaahoooo!!! It’s been a chilly and snowy Spring and the warmer air is so very welcome!
My card today definitely reflects my mood…bright, cheery, and ready to wear a summer dress! How cute are these dresses? They are from May’s SOTM (Stamp of the Month), Cutie Pie, and they are adorable! I took it a step further and did a little paper piecing for the dresses by using the Key Ingredients kit for May. The KI kit includes Echo Park Sweet Girl paper pad and coordinating Bazzill card stock and ribbon. I LOVE this combination! OR, you can subscribe to the Deluxe Kit and receive BOTH the stamp set and card stock, paper and ribbon. What I also love are the coordinating dies, how sweet is this banner die? Of course, the sentiments fit perfectly inside and the score lines are already there for you to fold.
Do you want to see more from this month’s adorable kit? The projects will knock your socks off! Thanks for stopping by!

Can I just say how much I love Taylored Expression’s July KI? This kit features Cosmo Cricket’s Tea for Two, some lovely embellishments, matching card stock, stickers and gorgeous ribbon.
I stamped Bikes and Trikes onto Choice Snow White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the image with Copics.
I finished the card with a Prima wood button and sewed a decorative border along the bottom. I love how finished the card looks with this kit!
My second card uses the same kit but has such a different look and feel to it. I love the colors in this one. I used Hangin’ Out for this card…don’t you love the little bumble bee? The mason jar is a sticker that comes with the kit and the pearl and button add such nice, subtle, details.
Thanks for stopping by and letting me share with you!

Happy Friday, everyone! I had an interesting day yesterday as I had a mass on my foot surgically removed. Everything was going pretty smoothly until my surgeon forgot to show up. Yes, he didn’t see it on his calendar. Hmph. Once they got a hold of him, he was in pretty quickly and it was over in under 30 minutes. I think the part that had me in stitches (pun intended) was when the surgeon (who did my husband’s sports hernia surgery a few months ago) asked my husband (who drove me) how his groin was. The nurse had no idea the two knew each other and the face she made (complete with her eyes popping out) was beyond funny!
Okay, on with today’s post! This adorable girl is called Cotton Candy For Me. Isn’t this the sweetest image? AND, it’s also the $2 deal...who can resist?
I used Copics to color the image and a cotton ball that I airbrushed for the cotton candy. I love how realistic the cotton candy looks…nice and fluffy and oh sooooo yummy!
Check out the rest of the images for Cotton Candy and Pony Rides…they are all adorable (you can also buy the images individually)!
Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has whipped up for you, there’s some yummy eye candy to see! Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your weekend!

After almost two days of heavy rain and thunderstorms we have a beautiful day in store for us. This beauty is so cute in her girly girl dress, blowing her pinwheel. It’s a part of this week’s release, Pin Wheels Are Fun. I used Pinwheel Princess and had fun bringing her to life. She would look great paper pieced too.
Don’t forget to check out the $2 deal for the week, Yellow Pinwheel. Hope you all enjoy your holiday weekend, happy Friday everyone!
