Sending Love....FMS571


I used blender brushes to create a simple shaded panel to use as the backdrop for my Valentine mailbox.  We all should have pink mailboxes on Valentine's Day!  The beautiful DSP added a colorful splash of flowers.......always welcome on Valentine's Day!

I created a mini slimline card (base is 5 3/4 by 3 1/4) using Jen Mitchell's wide open sketch this week!  Have fun with it at Freshly Made Sketches!

Stamp Sets: Mailbox of Love (Colorado Craft Co), Love Garden Greetings (SSS), Get Grounded (Ink Blot Shop)

Ink: Memento Black, Copics, Distress

Paper: Sweet Sorbet, Country Floral Lane DSP

Green Day! FMS570


A bit of soft stenciling behind the shamrocks was the perfect backdrop on my St. Patrick's Day card.  March will be here before we know it.  Hopefully we will be seeing some green by then.  Right now it is still pretty white around here.  Miss Emma built this little guy just from the snow on her porch!


Making a batch of these cards because when your name is Callahan you have a few Irish relatives to wish a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Jen Timko's sketch made my card a breeze!  Hope you join us at Freshly Made Sketches!

Stamp Set: Lucky Clover

Ink: Just Jade, Distress - Scattered Straw, Pink Lemonade

Oh Happy Day! FMS569


Who could resist a flower from this little charmer?  I love all of the critters in the new Playing in the Rain Set from Stampin' Up!

And who could resist an invite from this little charmer to come on into his new clubhouse......although visions of Jack Nicholson do come to mind........

Will turned four this week and we had so much fun celebrating his birthday.  And yes I went into the fort!

So many possibilities with Jacquie's great sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Hope you join us!

Thanks A Bunch ~ FMS568


Just had fun stamping with this new carrot set from Stampin' Up!  Love all the different images to add layers and dimension.  And then I added a tiny bit of bling because it entertained me to add some carats to the carrots!

I squished the squares on Judy's fun sketch into rectangles because technically squares are rectangles anyway....right?  Hope you join us at Freshly Made Sketches!
