A Few Cards

Just a quick post with a few cards I have made recently. It feels great to be creative recently! It is most definately my "release" from work, as it has been pretty darn stressful lately!


This one is my favorite! I made it using some Practicing Creativity stamp sets - Look Up and Key to My Heart!

This one is also made using only PCD stamps!

I made this one tonight (sorry for the bad lighting). I made it using some Basic Grey paper from the Max and Whiskers 6x6 pad and some Jovial brads! The samp is also from BG and it is from their Basics collection.

Have a great night!

PCD Challenge

Wow! It has been a REALLY long time since I participated in a challenge of any kind! Between all the excitement of moving (insert sarcasm) and getting settled in our new lives in PA, there hasn't been much time for anything! So I made some time and made myself sit down and be creative! I figured that Courtney's challenge was the perfect opportunity! She challenged us to make something using any of the Practicing Creativity Designs stamp sets.

I got my inspiration from this picture I took with my cell phone driving back from Hershey one day (well, my husband was driving and I was in the passenger seat):
So here's my card made with two sets from Practicing Creativity, Look Up and Barefoot Summer

I LOVE this hot air balloon stamp! So fun to paper piece and make it any design you want! I stamped it on some fabric paper from American Crafts Dear Lizzy Collection - Firefly Festival, using StazOn ink in Jet Black...
