Always a Rainbow!

Hello! Popping in today to share a card I made yesterday in a few moments of Mom time–DAY CRAFTING! What? I know. (Technically, it was early evening but daylight! ha!) I thought the same as I was making it.Β  Ha!

Love this little turtle from Lawn Fawn so very much and I had to use him!

Eeep –he’s the cutest! I used the sentiment from this set and another to say exactly what I wanted!

I love the addition of the felt hearts. Taylored Expressions felt is my super fave!

The current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge is Pet Love and I thought I’d join in the fun! I haven’t been able to play along in quite some time, so I seized the opportunity. My brother and I had a teeny pet turtle when we were kids. We ended up letting him go, but we really liked him while we had him briefly. Check it out HERE:

I had to make this one for a friend and get it in the mail–STAT! πŸ™‚

Lawn Fawn goodies: Get Well Before ‘nΒ  Afters (and dies HERE), Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters, Really Rainbow Petite Paper ( ❀ ), and Valentine Borders.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks to Lawn Fawnatics for keeping the challenges coming! πŸ™‚

Take care– Jill πŸ™‚

Rainbows and Cuteness!

Happy Day to you! I just wanted to pop in and share a stash of cards I made a couple of weeks ago… they make me smile and I hope they brighten your day too!

Isn’t this little Lawn Fawn Rainbow just the sweetest little ditty?! It’s called: Rain or Shine Before and Afters.I always love the smiling faces! The background paper is Lawn Fawn’s Really Rainbow Scallop. Love it!

Then I colored another Lawn Fawn rainbow and colored him in too. πŸ™‚

For this one, I stenciled on some clouds for the background. The little background scallop is Lawn Fawn’s.

And lastly, I had to commit this cutie Doodlebug sticker to a card. I wanted to hoard it, like we crafters do, but it just wanted to be on a card. πŸ™‚ I likely won’t mail this one, but that’s neither here nor there now, right? πŸ˜‰

It is a smiling typewriter with smiling paper!!! This makes me so happy! πŸ™‚

The stenciled background I made with Altenew’s Halftone stencil.

Thanks for stopping by! Come by tomorrow for a special blog post and VIDEO!! What? I know πŸ™‚

Take care– Jill πŸ™‚

The Best Ever!

Happy Wednesday!

I’ve have had this little Lawn Fawn Caramel Apple and die for so long and finally got around to stamping them! πŸ™‚

Adorable! I colored them with Copics, die cut them out and then stamped the sentiment from the Reveal Wheel Sentiments after scoring the card base under the circle. To finish this off, I added some stitching, some Stickles and a little hemp twine. πŸ™‚

Gah, I can’t take them with the googley eyes! πŸ™‚

The current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge is all about bling and sparkle–check it out HERE. Check it out:

Be sure to check out the challenge and join in! I haven’t played along in so long and I’m glad I finally could! πŸ™‚

Have a great rest of the week!

Take care– Jill πŸ™‚

Batty Tags!

Hola! Just popping in with a handful of treat tags I whipped up for teachers and staff. (And one little dude’s lunchbox πŸ˜‰ ) ❀

For these, I used Taylored Expressions Gone Batty,Β  Paper Smooches Tag Stitched Dies, Paper Smooches Teeny Stars, andΒ Lawn Fawn’s Reveal Wheel Sentiments. Fun!

❀ !

Eeeeeeep! Love that little bat.

I backed this patterned paper with cardstock for heft. Otherwise, just colored all with Copic Markers, added a few splats, googley eyes (of course), a few felt stars and done! Ready to give.

Halloween treats before everyone is inundated with sugar. Ha!! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care– Jill πŸ™‚

Swinging by to Say…

Sometimes you just need to Monkey around, right?! πŸ™‚

The current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge is a Color Challenge and I wanted to join in the fun! Check it out HERE: So I made this cute little monkey card. I have been loving the retro vibe lately, so I went with that. πŸ™‚ You just gotta love the 70’s and 80’s! πŸ™‚

I colored the cute monkey from the Lawn Fawn/Ellen Hutson setΒ  Love Ya Bunches (limited time set) with Copic markers. I made strips from scrap cardstock and then used an Avery Elle frame to cut it all out. I adhered all the bit down with foam tape. To polish it off, I scored the card base and added some stitching. Fun!

The sentiment Hang in There is from this Lawn Fawn setΒ  Slow Down and Enjoy! I stamped that a little too close to the Swinging by bit, but…. well at that point, I had to run with it! πŸ˜‰

Such a fun and sweet encouragement card to send! Loving these challenge colors! πŸ™‚

Have a great and safe Fourth of July!!

Take care– Jill πŸ™‚
