Happy Sunday friends. I hope that you are having a wonderful day in worship, with family and getting rested up for the week ahead!

And here is my card:
 A vintage yet masculine card

March D’s Stampin’ Team USA Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to this month’s blog hop with D’s Stampin’ Team USA. I am honored to be a guest hopper again this month.
We are focusing on birthdays and I love making cards for birthdays. Everyone loves getting happy mail and not bills on their special day! However, sometimes making a masculine card can be a challenge. With the fantastic images from the set Guy Greetings this is no longer a problem for me!
This layout is quick and easy using the Typeset designer series paper and the gold button adds a touch of sophistication without being girly.
Thank you so much for hopping with us! Now it is time to see what
my very BFF Nichole has in store for us!

An exciting announcment!

Hello my stamping friends! I am so excited to share with you that I have been invited to be a Guest Goddess over at Stampin’ Royalty!! I have been playing along with their challenges for the last couple of months so asking to be on the team is a HUGE honor!
The challenge for this week was to make a guy card. We know that those are always tough but with the new Going Global product suite it just got a lot easier.
The coordinating paper, stamp set and embossing folder make crafting for any guy in our life super simple, and we all know how much I like quick and easy!

A woodland Christmas

Today’s post is full of good news and cheer! This morning it was announced that the wildly popular Woodland Embossing Folder would be returning to our product line in June!!! I am so very excited about this news. This product was such a hot item that Stampin’ Up! could hardly keep it in stock and I feel that it can be used for all 4 seasons, for almost any occasion and is a great option when needing a masculine card. 
When I created this card for this week’s color challenge over at SSInkspiration the news of the return had not yet been announced. What great timing for me to be able to show you this card AND share the good news all in one post!
The challenge for this week is
As soon as I saw them I knew that products I was going to want to use. I love these as Christmas colors but I think they are also very masculine as well!
My project for this challenge

I absolutely love the look of the white trees with the Taupe background and the fussy cut ornaments really stand out against the neutral tones.. I was Facetiming with my BFF in WA State and she was a huge help in my design process because it was after midnight when I was working on this! Thanks friend!

ICS May Blog Hop – Celebrate Dad!

May’s Blog Hop is here! This month for Inspire, Create, Share we are celebrating our father’s! Welcome to those who have hopped here from Tammy’s Blog. I am so glad that you are here!


Making a card that celebrates my dad is sometimes hard. If he were here today, I know that he would love this simple card the honors the One who created us all.

My earthly father is in heaven and I celebrate him being free from sickness and pain and having freedom in Heaven with Jesus!! Loosing him was hard but knowing who he is with and where he is makes a huge difference when I miss him. It’s been 11 years this month since his passing, and while it never gets easier I am more used to him being gone than I used to be. I am also blessed with an amazing father-in-love who has taken me in as family and I love him dearly! I look forward to celebrating with him and my husband next month.


Now, it’s time to hop over and see what Tina has in store for us this month.

Its a Man Thing….

Here is it! Time for another blog hop and this month’s theme is the guy’s! With Father’s Day and so many summer birthdays we thought this would be so fitting.You have arrived here from Sherry’s blog and I hope you enjoyed her card!

My card is one that is quick and easy without much flair. Guys don’t like bling or flash on their cards *wink wink*

I chose a neutral color palate with the card base being Crumb Cake and I stamped my favorite background stamp Hardwood in Crumb Cake Ink. The banner is one of the gorgeous NEW 2014-2016 In Colors called Hello Honey. The Happy Birthday sentiment came from the May My Paper Pumpkin Kit and I {{LOVE}} it!! I used another new In Color, Lost Lagoon for the sentiment. A couple of wraps with twine and voila! Finished Man Card!

Thank you for hopping through on our June “It’s a Man Thing” blog hop! Click the button below to move on to Pearl’s blog and see her card.
