Today’s post is a special one. I am joining in a blog hop for Autism Awareness. My friends Veronica Zalis and Tenia Nelson are keeping up with this great idea in support of their children. I could not agree more with helping to shine a light on Autism Awareness.
I encourage you to check out Autism Speaks. It is a great website full of information and educational links to various resources.
I hope the world can learn to be more patient and considerate to those affected by Autism. I know for certain it is always appreciated.
Ok, on with my card, made with blue love….
This little cutie skater is from Mama Elephant, along with the sentiment. The backgrounds are My Favorite Things. The clouds are Avery Elle, along with the hill and panel die.
This came together with some fun little accents I “borrowed” from a friend. ❤️

Big hugs to Veronica and Tenia for organizing this hop!
Hop back to the beginning for the next stop!
Thanks for stopping in and I hope you’ll spread the love 😉
I am popping in today, to share a card I made for Ellen Hutson’s Mix It Up Challenge! I am so glad I snuck this in! I enjoy combining products I like so much!
For this card, I used Ellen Hutson’s All Inside and Avery Elle’s Hello Stamp. I’d venture to guess, this AE set is long retired (?), but it is a fave of mine still! 🙂
I stamped and used my Zig pens to watercolor in an ombré sunshiney look! It’s not quite as smooth as I’d have liked, but I decided if I messed with it anymore, I’d have watercolor outside the lines! 🙂
I scored the panel, and stitched it on a card base with a paper clip. That was about it! Lots of simple sunshine to mail!
I’m entering this in the Ellen Hutson January Mix It Up Challenge: Avery Elle. It’s about over, but if you run, you can sneak one in too! 😉
Thanks for stopping by!
When I saw this Love Puffin from Avery Elle, i just knew I wanted to stamp them! 🙂 So stinkin’ cute! I am going to share three different cards I made over the course of *two many* days… 🙂 Watercolor drying is painful sometimes.
I think this one above might be my favorite? I puffy heart you. I just ❤ that! 🙂This one above, I did not get a stellar photo. It had to get to its destination STAT! And this one was kind of a happy accident, even though I’m not 100% sure I like it yet… 🙂
Please excuse my inked and crazy hands in the pics! Overcast days are sometimes awesome for photos and sometimes not. Yesterday, was a not.
Thanks for dropping in!
Popping in quick, to say Happy Halloween!!
These Monster stamps and dies are all from Avery Elle! Soooooo fun! I have been pining to get my hands on them, and I took the opportunity to borrow a friend’s at our recent crafty retreat! Love these little guys! 😉
I colored them with Copic Markers, die cut, and then pieced it all together. This AE Burst die though! 🙂 Top of my AE wishlist. I used it at least 10 times while there. Fantastic!
Ok…gotta blaze the day! Have a fun Halloween! 🙂 ❤
Geesh! I have not made a card in many days! I don’t know how long it has been, but awhile. Mid-August to Mid/Late September is action packed around here! It’s been fun/busy/crazy for certain, but I am looking forward to regularly scheduled programming again. Or Christmas break, whichever gets here first! 🙂
Anyway, a quick share today to freshen’ things up around here!
I made some little gift cards for my son’s friends a while back. Well, he wanted a fish birthday card too! So voila! 🙂I used Avery Elle’s super fun fish: That Bites. Of course, searching for this stamp set link, I see there are many new Avery Elle stamps that I will be adding to my wishlist! Dang. Love that peeps keep making the Awesome! 🙂
Oh, also, I used Avery Elle’s Numbered Balloons.
Here’s the fun cards I made prior (in progress, that is.):
I did actually remember to take a pic after I finished them, but no time to hunt it down now! 🙂
Ok…gotta run! Happy Birthday to my favorite little man! I love him so. ❤
Take care all- Jill
I thought I’d pop in and share the two Teacher Appreciation cards we delivered at the beginning of this fun week!
This first one’s sentiment from Altenew makes my heart warm. Especially when teaching preschoolers. I think there is a lot of love and care that goes along with teaching the youngest kids. 🙂
This stamp is Teachers Rule from Altenew, the Notebook die is from Technique Tuesday, the PP is from Cosmo Cricket and the background die is MFT. 🙂Because my son has two Awesome teachers:
This stamp is Little Minds from Avery Elle. The dies are from MFT. 🙂
Super enjoy these Teacher stamp sets. I stamped and colored these images a couple of months back, so I wasn’t rushing about this week. But guess what? Yup, didn’t get them assembled til late Sunday night. Ugh. Never fails! 🙂
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…Teachers Rock! We have had the pleasure of two amazing teachers, two years in a row. Grateful for their energy and PATIENCE! 🙂
I just received this fantastic set, World’s Greatest Award from Technique Tuesday. Another fun one for Teachers! I hope to make something later this week with my little helper, and share it after. We’ll see what pans out!
Lots of fun birthdays to make cards for! I used some awesome Avery Elle stamp sets for this one: Numbered Balloons, Party Animal, and Surf’s Up! I decided I’d love to have the dies from the Numbered Balloons! 🙂 Never fails. Haaa!Oh, to be five! 🙂
I colored the van with Copics, used Distress inks to rub over, and finished off the balloon with some Wink of Stella shine. That was a mistake bc my WOS pen is sort of on the fritz and spurts out a lot all at once. Should have waited til after I photo’d. I say this EVERY TIME I touch that pen! Grrrrr. Haaaa! Oh well. 🙂
The wonky stitch rectangle die cut is MFT. I’m pretty much using that on everything right now 🙂 The STAX set it comes from rocks! 🙂
That’s about it for today. Stay warm! I went out this morning and it was 1 lovely degree today! 🙂
