I Think Of You card

Hi! Thank you my super crafty friends for stopping by to check out my Design Team card for Shopping Our Stash Challenge #316 Chillaxin and Relaxin! Since August 15th is National Relaxation Day, we want you to create something that is relaxing to you!

I love the beach so of course I went with that theme! I love, love, love this old stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Sketches and use it every chance I get! This time I used my watercolor pencils and I love how it turned out!

I hope you join us this week with a project! I can’t wait to see what you create!


You Donut Look A Year Older card

Hi again, stampers! Here is my Design Team card for Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #176 Fancy Folds! I had a blast making this card because I got to challenge myself to figure out how to make a step card without using a die! I love a good challenge and I’m very proud of myself for figuring it out!

I hope you join us and do your own fancy fold card! If you want, here are my measurements to make your own step card! I donut want you to have to reinvent the wheel! (LOL! See what I did there??)

step up card measurements


This card is a regular A2 card. Start with a card stock cut to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches then cut a 6 inch slit to split the card into two sides for the steps. I like doing it 3 inches from one side but you can do it anywhere you like as long as you leave 1 inch on one side and 1 3/4 inches on the other. Then score at the 1 inch, 2 inch, 3 1/2 inch, 5 inch and 6 3/4 inch marks but only score to the slit you previously cut. Then turn the card around and score at the 4 1/4 inch mark. Accordion fold your steps and decorate!


Donut Worry Be Happy card

Hi again, Stampers! I’m back with my Design Team card for Always Fun Challenges Challenge #19 Going In Circles! The stamps set I used is from Fun Stampers Journey and is called “Donut Worry”! I just love, love, love this set!

Make A Wish card

Hello my artistic friends! Here is my card for Always Fun Challenges Challenge #18 Let It Sparkle! I love sparkle so this one was hard to do since I wanted to do everything! I got out my glitter, sequins, glitter paper, shimmer mist and shimmer pens but I had to restrain myself or my card would have looked like a unicorn barfed on it!!

To make this card I ran some cardstock through my Big Shot in an embossing folder then added touches of Distress Ink across the top! Then, of course, I had to add some glimmer mist to make it sparkle!

I hope you join us this week at Sunny Day Crafting and do your own embossing of any type! I can’t wait to see what you create!

What Christmas in August?

OMG! I am being forced to do Christmas cards before December? Ugh! Now I’m going to be ready with cards before the “deadline”! I’m always late with my Christmas cards so my Design Team card for Shopping Our Stash SOS#314 Countdown to Christmas will help me do it “right” this year! I’m actually pretty grateful to have some cards ready early since that will take the pressure off! Thank you, Teamie Donna for making this our challenge this week!! I hope you all join us and get some cards done early! Having them ready to go will make you feel organized and on top of things! Really! It does!

Do you like my “paneled” wall? It is actually Contact Paper to line your drawers with from the Dollar Tree! I unrolled it, peeled the backing off to expose the sticky back and placed it on some paper! Then I cut it down and ran it through my Big Shot in a wood grained embossing folder! Super cool and so much easier than digging out my Distress Inks!! Try it!
