Inspired by Card Sketches

Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by. It has been a while.

Here we are in a new year. Happy New Year! I’m always yearning to get creative but don’t always make the time. January feels like a fresh start to make time.

Well, I love the idea of card sketches. Thank you to all creators of these sketches. They inspire! So, I was inspired to play along with Freshly Made Sketches #417 – A Sketch by Judy

Here’s my version:

“Cam & Chloe” stamp by Hampton Art, Inc.

Here’s Judy’s card sketch:

Thanks again for visiting. Happy Day!


Making time

Hi! Thx for stopping by. Hope all’s well. Haven’t posted here in what feels like forever. Anyone reading this doing #the100dayproject? Today marks Day 56. Typically, I get on with my day and hope to craft or create at the end of the day. Rarely goes as planned. So, I take time to be creative at the beginning of each day. Right after a long walk at the crack of dawn with my bestie and my sweet dog. I’m loving it! May joy come your way! Today’s card was inspired by #freshlymadesketches 389. #thankful #altenew #cardmaking #cardmaker #coffeelovingcardmakers


Happy Valentine’s Day! ♥️

Happy Day 14 & Happy Valentine’s Day! ♥️ Today, I hit the “nooks and crannies” as @kathyrac encourages us to do. #thedailymarker30day Hmm. Interesting compared to yesterday. Whatever the outcome, I thoroughly enjoyed the journey. May you enjoy your journey and feel extra-loved and cherished today. 💕 #lovetocolor #thankful #lovefromwithin #prismacoloredpencils #coloringcommunity


Happy 30 Days of Coloring & Sharing!

Happy 30 Day Coloring! Hi! While I haven’t posted for #thedailymarker30day until this 13th day, I’m so thankful for the encouragement to color, something I love to do. I’m coloring a little every day, even when I feel I don’t have time. 😊 So, Thank You! I love seeing what you all are sharing, too. Wish I could see & love it all, but…deadlines. 😂😊 Here’s to finding time each day for joy. #thankful #altenew #prismacolorpencils #stamping #coloringcommunity #coloring


Happy Saturday! How is your new year? 2019 has been good so far here in that I’m making time every day to be creative. Even if it’s super-simple like this #simplestamping of a sentiment on patterned paper.


I lovingly hoard paper pads, so I have been working on #loveitchopit – thank you @kyliebertuccisudemonstrator for encouraging us to chop & use our beloved paper. I finished off this #basicgrey 12×12 pad, which was tough because it was down to some of my favorite sheets. I does help to know I’m not alone. 🤣😁 May you find many moments of joy. For you. #thankful #handmadecards #patternedpaper

Painted by Nature

Hello! It’s been a while since my last post. 🙂 Happy Day! Every year, these huge flowering vines along a nearby trail fascinate me. Datura? Perhaps invasive & considered pesky. But, beautiful. Of course, had to do #invertedcolors; final image is the bigger picture. Thanks for peeking! 😊#artinnature #natureinspires #thankful #datura

Day 20 Coloring

Happy Day 20 of #thedailymarker30day! One quick layer of water & a bit of color and another lovely @powerpoppy #digistamp. Joy! Will add more another day. The paper surprised me as it’s not watercolor paper, but #cansonmiteintespastelpaper. Here’s to sweet little surprises. ☺️ #thankful #coloringtherapy #watercolor #coloringcommunity
