Got a little a card to share with you today.
I was feeling the need to get inky so I made this guy!
I created that rainbow background with the Crosshatch stencil. I just plopped the stencil down (so to speak) onto cardstock and then started sponging on the ink. First red, then orange, then yellow and then green. You get the picture.
A funny little story about that circle. I originally planned not to have it there. I stamped the phrase and (… sigh with me, peeps… ) rocked the stamp and dropped it. Yes, yes. You feel my pain? It was a stampy mess. Thus, I went in for the save. I cut the circle, stamped a new phase and adhered it to the card …. tightly! ;)
Short and sweet today. Be back again later, gators.

Just something fun today! I’ve got a little giveaway, courtesy of Technique Tuesday.
What’s up for grabs? Well, it’s this.
This is the Planner – Thanks stamp set.
This stamp set is one that features some doodles,
chicken scratch words and stuff by me. It was designed to work most of the planners out there so you can document what you are thankful for. But is also a darn good one to use on scrapbook pages and to make cards with. (Did you see what Tonya Dirk did with it to make a card? So cool! And check out how Candi Billman used it her planner! Not going to lie. I was like, “OH MY GOSH! I can’t believe you used it! DUDE!” My friend, Julie, used it in her planner too.)
So if you’d like a chance at winning this stamp set, just leave a comment on this post by midnight EST on 11/28/15. I’ll announce a winner on 11/30/15.
Once again, big thanks to TT for providing the stamp set for this giveaway.
Got a couple simple stamped projects to share with you today. Both were made in the spirit of Thanksgiving.
Meet Fancy Made Thing #1.
And meet Fancy Made Thing #2.
I had made a bunch of leaves awhile back with Autumn Acorns stamp set and coordinating Autumn Acorns dies from Ellen Hutson. I used them on a couple projects and still had a few leftover that I didn’t just want to trash. So yeah. I whipped these guys together.
Thought the tag would make a nice addition to a bottle of wine to take to a friend. And the card would be enjoyed by another friend on Thanksgiving Day.
Be back again later, gators.
Just stopping by quick today.
I’m up on the Simple Stories blog, sharing a peek inside my Carpe Diem Planner.
Here’s a little peek for you.
You can see more from my planner over there. I’d be tickled if you’d check it out.
See you again soon!
Just here with a quick card to share with you today.
I created it with some of the products that My Favorite Things is retiring. All the retiring stamps and dies (and some other cool retiring products) are 50% off right now. They are going incredibly fast.
I cut the white base panel with the retiring Office Supplies Die-namics. And then I cut the world and words into it. I just used scraps of cardstock behind the openings. If you could flip that panel over, you’d see it’s kind of a hot mess of cardstock scraps. ;)
I stamped the paper background with the Writing Tablet Background stamp, which is also retiring. I’m sure going to miss it. Always love the look of notebook paper.
Alright, that’s what I have for you.

It’s Creative Challenge time again with the My Favorite Things Design Team.
Our challenge this time? To think out of the box and apply non-traditional colors to our Christmas crafting projects.
So I went bold and I made this card.
Ta-da! Ok. It’s a lot bold. ;)
An orange, pinks and black all together with a bit of white.
I created the background striped piece with the Stripes Cover-Up. I cut the panel three times and then layered the panels on together, letting the bottom two layers peek out just a bit.
To make the “joy” word stand out, I die-cut three times and then stacked up the dies. I felt like it just needed that extra bit of pop against the bright bold colors.
To see more takes on this challenge, stop by the MFT Stamps blog. Lots of links to be found.
