This is my second post for today so scroll down to see the first please! I am so excited to enter my first JUGS challenge! This week is a template challenge and I was super excited to play along with the Shutt-erfly template from My Time Made Easy. Lauren is like my hero, her designs amaze me and I always know that each one I purchase is going to have so many uses. Here's my take on this challenge, hope you like it!

Easel card

I found a tutorial for the easel card and thought it was such a cute design that I had to try it myself. My husband's aunt's birthday is on Tuesday so I made her this card for her birthday. I'd love to hear what you think.

Two for you today

I have two cards to share today, the first one is a baby boy card and the second one is the valentine for my husband this year. I'm really happy with how they both turned out and would love to hear what you think. I finally was able to get my hands on blending stumps and odorless mineral spirits yesterday so I could actually use my Prismacolor pencils that I bought months ago. These two cards are my first attempts at using them so keep in mind I am definitely still learning how to use them.

Supplies (all PTI unless stated):
Cardstock: Enchanted Evening, Aqua Mist, Lemon Tart, White (from my stash)
Patterned Paper: Joann's
Stamp: Sailboat (Dustin Pike) - digital
Other: Cricut Expression, New Arrival Cartridge (Provocraft), Apron lace punch (Fiskars), Fresh Snow satin ribbon, Prismacolor Pencils

I also found out after creating my valentine that Dustin has opened up a challenge blog as well and guess what? The first challenge was to create a Valentine's card using one of his images. SCORE. I'm excited to get to participate in this challenge - especially since my card was already made :)

Supplies (all PTI unless stated):
Cardstock: Scarlet Jewel, White (from my stash)
Patterned Paper: Throw Me A Line (
My Time Made Easy), Pure Poppy bitty dot basics
Stamps: Heart Bear (Dustin Pike) - digital, Mega Mixed Messages, Heartfelt Basics

I'm really trying to get myself to make time so that I can start building up my stash of cards so I settled down last night after putting my son to bed and started to work on a card when I realized what I really wanted to work on was a card for my best friend. She's been my best friend for over 20 years and is currently serving in the Navy so she's been out of state the last few years and we rarely get to see each other. I wanted to make sure she knew that even though she's all the way across the country I still think about her all the time so this card is for her.

Don't mind the shadow at the bottom of the inside. The sentiment is computer generated everything else is Papertrey Ink unless otherwise stated.

Cardstock: Plum Pudding, Lavender Moon, White (from my stash)
Patterned Paper: Joann's
Stamps: Mega Mixed Messages
Ink: Plum Pudding
Other: Darling Daisies (MTME), cricut expression, cream button, rhinestones

First post & color challenge entry

I think it's only fitting that my first blog post be my entry into Dawn McVey's color challenge considering I have stalked her blog for the past year and love her style. I've never participated in any challenges before and I've never uploaded my cards before either but it's a new year and I want to start doing things I haven't done before. I do want to say though, that I've only been card making for about 6 months so I am definitely still learning but I would love your feedback whether it's good or bad. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies all PTI unless otherwise noted.
Paper: Dark Chocolate, Aqua Mist, Lemon Tart, Cream (from my stash), Aqua Mist bitty dot
Stamp: Mega Mixed Messages
Ink: Versamark
Other: My Time Made Easy Pretty Pieces (butterfly), Cricut
