My Creative Time DT Call !

Hello! Hope all of you are enjoying your Saturday night!! Man oh man! When I saw Emma at My Creative Time had a design team call I was BEYOND excited! I have been a using her stamps as soon as I found them! Needless to say, I ♥ her crafty projects! Great, great inspiration! I kept thinking day after day about ideas, but by Friday I had "so many" I couldnt create one :/ anywhoo... I was about to just let it go, buuuut Im so glad I have a wonderful, encouraging husband that insisted I do it! Enough of that, and here it is :) So today, I whipped this baby up and JUST finished!

 My 12x12 layout includes two 4x4 photo mats.  The 12x12 paper is one of my fave's from the DCWV Mango Frost stack (also the photo mat paper). The yellow scalloped is from We R Memory Keepers Textured cardstock stack. The rest, were "extras" :)
 Me, drinkin' my coffee just like every other morning ! hehe
"You bring out the happy in me!" is from the "Turn That Frown Upside Down" set.
I head embossed the coffee mug onto my dress. The coffee mug is from "My Favorite Sayings"

The "kiss me" is from the "You Had Me at Chocolate" set.

Good morning! I know I mentioned this already, but I havent posted on here for a LONG time... so what have I been up to? ... well I've been handling work, lost puppy, and life in between -all while trying to craft in those free moments. Recently I was turned on to Tim Holtz Distress Inks and I have to say, I ♥ THEM! I have also been learning new techniques, styles, and forms of crafting, etc.. but more of that later! :)
I made this "tall" card for my bff, obvious? ;) [WARNING: I'm a novice distresser lol]
If I remember correctly I used: Victorian Velvet, Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick, and Dusty Concord for the background.
The stamp is from the Inkadinkado "Friendship" stamp set, which I stamped with Vintage Photo distress ink.

Trying to get the hang of this distressing, but heyyy, gotta start somewhere!

Thanks for looking!

Hello there :)

Hello and WOW! Has time gone by in a flash or whaaat! I cant believe that it's been over TWO months since my last post :(  to all of you that have remained followers, a huuuge thank you ♥
Today I want to share with you two banners [same concept/different colors] :)

 Up close, for the flowers I cut two flowers and put zots to pop them up and give them dimension.
The base for the banner is from Twinkle Toes and the font is from Base Camp.
