Dear Ones~
Well, hello strangers! It's been quite some time since I have done a post, or made a card for that matter. Life sometimes gets in the way - but you all probably know that. Grandbabies, trips to Midland to see my folks, art festivals, etc., etc., etc. It feels oh-so-good to get back in my craft room.
Today's card has been made for the Mod Squad Challenge and the MIUM Challenge over at StampTV. The Mod Squad Challenge is being hosted by my dear friend Nancy this week. She's uber talented, I love her work. Check out her blog by clicking on her name. She has provided us with a sketch to use. Love sketches - all the work is done for you, and you get to just have the fun of picking out papers and stamps. The StampTV Challenge is to use at LEAST 7 layers. No challenge for me at all, love me some layers.
Here is Nancy's sketch:

And here's my card:

I just got this new die set by Papertrey Ink called Circle Scribbles, and I couldn't wait to use it. Isn't it cute? There are three different sizes - lots of possibilities. I think I'll be using it a lot.

Here are the supplies I used:

Gina K Designs Cherry Red and Turquoise Sea Card Stock
My Mind's Eye Collectable Patterned Paper
Gina K Designs Charcoal Brown for Greeting
Circle Scribbles Die by Papertrey Ink
Flower Punches by Paper Studio
Ribbon from my Stash

So that's it my friends. The Hubs is outside mowing the lawn, and I'm getting whiffs of that wonderful fresh cut grass smell. The sun is shining and it FINALLY feels like summer. Life is good! Thanks for stopping by - oh, and happy Memorial Day!!


  1. Love reading your blog...your a gifted writer! Love that cool die cut too...endless possibilities with that for sure! Your colors are beautiful and those flowers look great with the die base! Thanks for your continued support and being a good friend! Thanks for playing with me at Mod Squad too! :)

  2. So glad to see you back in the craft room. All of the fun that you had with the grands and going to visit others is great, but always nice to be home. Wow, love the die too. I don't have much PTI and I would like to enter some of their challenges, but alas, no products. Love the bright colors on this one. Those flowers that you created really go with the BG paper too.
