Rubeena is such a super talented crafter and such an inspiration!! If you do not already follow her make sure to do so, you will absolutely fall in love with everything she creates!

I was very excited to create something to share with you in honor of this celebration. I began with two fun cards with some crafty friends in mind. I was inspired by two previous "Disney Themed" cards I had created using Lawn Fawn products. The first one was actually created for Rubeena's birthday. It was an Alice in Wonderland themed card. I recreated it in honor of her hop but this time I used the fun Shadow Box die.


I wanted to create an area to write a note in for the recipient of this card, so I 
created a mini card on the back of my shadow box. 


Here is the inside of the card: 




I used the same Copic markers as I did for the first card with this theme.
Please feel welcome to check out that post here

For my second card, I used the beautiful 
Magnolia Clear Stamp by Avery Elle.
I ended up creating a set of cards with the gorgeous image from this set.

I used Daniel Smith watercolors to color the flowers in. 
For the background, I used Gouache paint. 






Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by today! 
I hope you will join us tomorrow for Day 2 of this amazing hop and celebration!!! 
Wishing you a wonderful and blessed day!! 

Up next is the super talented Keeway Tsao!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Favorite Place ....

Hello everyone!! Happy Sunday! 
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
We had a super busy weekend planned, yesterday was lots of fun celebrating 
one of my adorable nieces 2nd Birthday. Today we were planning 
on building our gazebo (part of our backyard remodel). We were ready to spend the whole 
day... in the heat, lol ( wasn't too excited about that part) when we found out that we could not 
place the gazebo onto the freshly laid turf we had just had installed. We ended up having a nice 
relaxing Sunday.  It was a wonderful surprise, I was able to do a bit of crafting just for fun. 

For my cards today I had a completely different idea on what I was going to create, but since it was the last day to join the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge # 34 Favorite Place I ended up minimizing the design I had in mind. I still had so much fun creating for this theme. 


For my first card I was inspired by our first trip last year to the San Diego Zoo and the Safari Park,
we absolutely loved it!! 
We also recently visited the Oakland Zoo and fell in love with the new exhibits they have. 
As you can see from the card one of my favorite places to go is the Zoo. 




For my next card, I had to create a Disney theme card. LOL...Yes, had to!! We love our Disney trips. 
And you know me and Disney themed Lawn Fawn cards, lol. 
This one was a different version of a previous card I had created. 
Please feel welcome to see that post here. 
I used the same Copic Marker combos to color these images in.


I also added my version of Winnie The Pooh on the bottom left corner. 






I hope you enjoy the cards I created to share with you today! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day! 

Challenges 4 Fun~

YAY!!! HSN Crafty Day with Derwent Inktense Color Pencils..........

Hello everyone!! Happy Wednesday!!
I am super excited to share the cards I have been working on recently. 
I was invited to design a couple of cards to be part of today's HSN crafty day!!! 
I am very thankful for this wonderful opportunity!!! 


For my cards, we were showcasing Derwent Inktense Colour Pencils.
I admit it was my first time using these pencils. 
It was interesting to see how they work. 
I love the fact that you can add multiple layers to get different intensity of color.


I used Avery Elle, Reverse Confetti, Concord & 9th, Mama Elephant, Hello Bluebird, 
WPlus9, Altenew, and Ellen Hutson for my cards. 






















I can not thank you enough for taking the time to stop by!!

Hello Bluebird August 2018 Release Sneak Peek.......

Happy Sunday everyone!! 
Sneak Peeks. 


This is such a fun release! 

I created three cards to share with you today. 
I used the Ghostly Greetings set and the coordinating dies for my first two cards. 
It actually would have been three, lol I ended up using the first card I created as an envelope 
insert for the following two cards. 


I began by taking the CUTE candy corn image from the Ghostly Greetings set and stamping it 
all over to create a background. 
I then added a couple of the stars from that same set to create a pattern. 


I then colored in my candy corn images using  Copic markers in
a fun combination of pinks and oranges. 


I then colored the images from the Halloween Party stamp set. 
I thought they would go great with the candy corn images. 
These cards were inspired by the sentiment I used from the Autumn Gatherings set. 


 For the bunny card, I used Distress Oxide inks to create the base. 

And the brand new die as well. I love the edge of this die set!! 


For my third card, I used the adorable Autumn Gatherings set and the Birch Tree Dies. 
The images and dies in this set are wonderful for Fall/Autumn themed cards!! 


I hope you enjoy the sneak peeks we are sharing with you!! 
This release will be available on August 15th!!!
