We have been in school for almost a month now down here in South Florida. I don't really make anything for their teachers in the beginning, but I sure hook them up at teacher appreciation week! 

I used all scrap paper for everything, and all of my dies and stamps came from Jaded Blossom! 

Please say a little prayer for my family this weekend. We will be enduring Hurricane Irma Saturday night, into all day Sunday. This will be my first hurricane, and we are a little nervous! I do blizzards, not hurricanes! LOL See you all when power is restored!

Hang Ten Dudes and Dudettes!!

I made a few different things for this hop!

First, I have this great stack of paper I bought from an outlet store...its from Me & My Big Ideas and its sort of like thick wrapping paper! I bought it for 3 of the sheets! LOL I have been wanting to fill a little spot by my desk so I made a little sign using the paper and some vinyl. I designed it & cut with my Silhouette. (sorry for my shadow in it!)


Next, I made myself a tank top! I love mermaids if you haven't noticed. Actually, I love anything related to the beach/nautical! LOL I spent a 2 solid hours designing this one and am so happy with it! Hard to tell in the picture but its a navy blue tank top
with a mint green (ish) design using HTV. 


And finally, I just started using a planner and found one I love! Its a happy planner from Me & My Big Ideas (MAMBI). I started making my own clips for it and used some dies from Jaded Blossom from one of their recent releases.



Now SURF on over to Kim

DT Day ~ Paper Nest Dolls

Hey everyone! Today is my day to post over at Connie Can Crop. I am going to share with you a card I made using a digital stamp from our sponsor, Paper Nest Dolls.


I used Fairy Emma with unicorn for my stamp. I went with our challenge theme of watercolors and colored her in with some water color crayons I found at Michaels the other day. Not a big fan of them as they are super wide and hard to get the small spots! I stamped the sentiment with a stamp from Jaded Blossom and the sequins are from Close to my Heart. 

Thanks for taking a peek!

Connie Can Crop ~ Monthly Challenge #61


Time for another monthly challenge over at Connie Can Crop! Her theme this time is water colors :) Create anything with watercolors in it! 

For my project, I created a very simple card. I don't have water color markers or paint, so I improvised. I had bought this adorable little girl in the Silhouette Design Store a while back- Her romper and hair has the watercolor look to them. 


I used cardstock from my stash. The sentiment and the bubbles are from Jaded Blossom and the girl is by Rivka Wilkins, Design ID #57067 in the SIL store. 
I used blush ink from Close to my Heart for the sentiment and I also used it for some shaded color on the cream background. 

Thanks for stopping by today! I can't wait to see what you enter!

Design Team ~ Bugaboo Stamps

Hey everyone! Today is my day to post over at Connie Can Crop's blog! 

I want to share a card I made with a digi stamp from our sponsor this month, Bugaboo Stamps. I used their Guy walking dog image. We are always on the go at different events for the kids so we rely on our neighbor quite a bit to walk the dogs for us! I just wanted a very simple card to give, since they are very simple people! I'll probably make some brownies to attach the card to as well! 


I treated myself to new markers from Amazon Prime day. They are by Artify. I don't have much to compare them to, but I love them. I want to get good at coloring/blending before I make the splurge on copics! haha! 

I also used some cardstock from my stash. I printed this paper when I had my Cricut Imagine! omg...how long ago was that?!!? 

Anyway, I hope you upload something to Connie's monthly challenge this month! Her theme is "Use your stash".
