The Card Concept Challenge

I decided to play along at  
this week.
The challenge was to use an umbrella.

I pulled out my Unity Hodgepodge of Happiness - 
which hasn't seen ink in a VERY LONG TIME!

Here is my umbrella card -

I've been pulling out my Copics more and more lately...
I got rid of most of mine about a year or so ago, 
and only kept my favorite colors to play with. 
I may need to add a few more to my collection.

I definitely went with the clean and simple approach with my card,
which is what I mostly stick to.  Every now and again, I'll
think outside the box.
The umbrella is paper pieced with Fancy Pants 
Park Bench designer paper.  
I'd LOVE to have an umbrella like hers, 
wouldn't you?!

Thanks for stopping by today - I appreciate it.

Hello all!  Hope you are having a fabulous week!
We had a gorgeous weekend here in PA, and now its
 currently 39 degrees!

I'm so ready for summer weather!

I've got a card today that I made for the challenge over at

I dug into my supplies and came up with this:

I love my Reverse Confetti Lots to Say!  I find that 
I'm constantly digging it out to use!  My sequins are
from Pretty Pink Posh - another fabulous place
to shop!!

Thank so much for stopping by.  I hope wherever

Challenges Galore Card

It's been a while.  
I haven't felt like doing much creating
lately, so I've been kind of laying low.
I started a new job about 6 weeks ago and I love it, 
but I'm mentally
DRAINED till I get home.  

I found a few challenges to play along with and though
I would sit down to try and play a bit tonight.  
I'm playing along with these challenges tonight:

Such fun challenges out there to play along with!
One of the ways I try to get my creativity flowing,
is to go check out blogs, or Pinterest, but heck
I look at Pinterest for everything!!!
Who doesn't??

Anyways, here is my card:

clean and simple....
I really need to build up my stash of birthday
cards, so I may just concentrate on them for a while.

Paper: PTI White
Ink: SU Summer Sun, SU Soft Sky, Versafine black
Misc: Stencil from Prima, Pretty Pink Posh sequins
