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™‚

hello! I have a pile of cards I have yet to share that I made over the summer. So today, I’m popping in to share this group of funny cards and a lil’ bit of fall….

These stamps are super funny to me, especially this first one. Everything is better in a cape! Cracking up!! πŸ™‚ Full disclosure: The reason this chick is colored so awesomely and skillfully, is because my friend Jen colored it and let me have it. πŸ™‚ Or did I just take it? ha–Just kidding! πŸ˜‰ I did color her cape and make the rest of the card though. Ha!

So fun! This is Taylored Expressions Sarcasti-Chick and her Halloween Closet. Just. So. Funny. ❀

Next up, I have this very ON POINT hair humor card. Hilarious. These are also stamps by Taylored Expressions–from the Clearly Planned called Super Sweet. I colored all of this one. πŸ™‚

Because it has been soooooo humid here! πŸ™‚

And then, we get to the sweet Thank You cards for Fall. I made a handful of these, but forgot to take a group picture, so here’s just one. πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care– Jill πŸ™‚

Autism Awareness Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to my stop on this awesome route to shining a light on Autism Awareness. To start at the beginning and not miss a thing, you’ll want to head HERE to Veronica Zalis’s Blog. You can find out all the details about the hop, making a card, the sponsors, prizes, etc. there. Veronica has put together another awesome hop this year and I’m proud to be a part of it. Autism Awareness is especially close to Veronica’s heart and I’m glad I can do a small part in spreading the word and ❀ .

First, I’d like to share a link to Autism Speaks. This hop is a great opportunity for me to read/link to the latest on research and information there, and I thought I’d share it with you too. ❀


Today, I’m sharing two cards. This first one uses Taylored Expressions Autism Awareness set called Look With Your Heart and 25% of the proceeds are being donated to the Autism Society. I’m happy TE reached out to let us obtain this set early and use it today. πŸ™‚ Taylored Expressions is also a sponsor on our hop today and offering a lovely prize. Be sure to read about that! πŸ™‚

I love Taylored Expressions felt! ❀ You should see the tiny little pieces I cut these flowers from. I use every last little smidgen of this stuff up. πŸ™‚ This flower die is Taylored Expressions lil bits die

Goodness, I just adore this sweet sentiment. ❀

Here’s an image of the entire set: Look With Your Heart.


Next up, is this sweet card I made using a new favorite die from Technique Tuesday called Pieces of My Heart . Technique Tuesday is also sponsoring today’s hop and offering a great prize too. Be sure to check that out on the TT Blog HERE. πŸ™‚

For this, I blended on some Distress Oxide ink and scored the base panel to give it some texture. I then added the Heart and lovely awesome sentiment from the stamp set Being Unique.

I just ❀ this sentiment so. Gah! πŸ˜‰

Thank you to Veronica for all her hard work to get the hop organized and to the amazing sponsors for taking part! Again, be sure to head to Veronica’s Blog HERE to start from the beginning! πŸ™‚

ETA: Here’s the updated FANTABULOUS list of designers, sure to make you smile! (Hopefully all the links are working.) πŸ™‚

Souper Soon!

We have a pretty good stack of snow here and it is currently snowing! I don’t mind if we have nowhere to go.. However, today we are heading out during a lull, I think? Ha! We’ll see! πŸ™‚

Anywho, I thought I share a card I colored with Copic Markers for The Daily Marker’s 30 Day Challenge yesterday! Day 26 already! Wow!

These little cuties are from Taylored Expressions called Souper Soon….and they make me smile! Hopefully this will cheer up someone who may need it! πŸ™‚

I think they are adorable, and of course, I had to add a couple of googley eyes. I created the background masking and using Distress Oxide Inks (Salted Ocean and Lucky Clover) and a black pen. I thought it turned out fun! πŸ™‚

I used both 80lb and 110lb Neenah white cardstock and stitched it all together. πŸ™‚

Alrighty, that’s all for today. Thanks for stopping by and I hope your weekend is warm and cozy!

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚
