The Heart Desires Challenge #10

Hello Everyone!

Today I am playing along with The Heart Desires, one of my very favorite challenge blogs! There’s still a little bit of time left to play along with this month’s challenge at The Heart Desires right here: http://theheartdesiresblog.blogspot.com/2017/03/the-heart-desires-challenge-10.html

There’s so much to love about each of these wonderful inspiration photos! So much, in fact, that I was overwhelmed in what direction to go! I was really drawn to the shape of octagon maps on the wall. How cool is that? After I made the octagon pattern, I was really stumped, and sat on this for about a month! I finally added the seagulls and shouted “Ahoy!” This card has launched! The seagulls seem to bring it all together.

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop: Good Wishes

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing another card for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! You can get all the details and link up your fabulous coffee themed card right here: http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2017/03/2017-spring-coffee-lovers-blog-hop/

Today, I wanted something really fresh and bright, so I used one of the free digi images created by Julee Tilman and Verve! It sounds like a sweet blessing from the faeries, so I added a glittery faerie and some cheerful tulips, and passed these good wishes on to all of you!

Along with good wishes comes a little treat, Blog Candy! Just leave a comment and one random winner will be selected to win this amazing bag of actual candy and a Starbucks gift card!

One winner will be selected from all of the comments left during my posts for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, March 24 – 31.

Fusion Challenge: Paris Rain

Hello Everyone!

Today I am playing along with the Fusion Card Challenge, Paris Rain! This week’s inspiration photos has been one of my very favorite! I’d love to have this on the wall of my studio! There’s still a little time to play along with the Fusion Challenge right here: http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com/2017/03/fusion-paris-rain.html

I didn’t really create any fusion; I just used the pretty inspiration photo. I loved the bright oranges combined with the shades of gray, and of course, I had to have an actual Eiffel Tower! I have a tiny collection of Eiffel Towers and prints in my house! If any of you, my crafty friends, would like to send me a card with an Eiffel Tower on it, I would add it to the collection and send you one too! We’ll spread our Eiffel Tower love art around the world!

Thank you so much for joining me today!

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the Baby Girl Blog Hop to welcome Little Miss Croghan into the world! The very talented designer Lesley Croghan and her husband Corey are going to receive a very special delivery very soon! We’d like to wish Lesley all the best with a very special Baby Girl Blog Hop! You can see beautiful baby girl inspiration and ideas from all of Lesley’s crafty friends right here: http://caffeinatedcreativityblog.blogspot.com/2017/03/its-girl-blog-hop-for-lil-miss-croghan.html

An elephant with her trunk up is a symbol of good luck and good blessings coming your way, and we are wishing Lesley plenty of both! I cut out stitched squares to form a pink and yellow watercolor background, then added this sweet little elephant, balloons, and some magical stars.

Congratulations Lesley and Corey!
