Watercoloring + Markers on the Crafty Doodle Chick Blog

Hello, hello!!!!  It's been quiet over here on my blog, I'm so sorry!  I've been re-doing my bedroom at home, going out with friends and my hubby, as well as working on some secret HSN projects, that I just haven't had the time to share over here.  But.... I'm back today with a beautiful card that I've created for the Crafty Doodle Chick Blog, using several new to me techniques thanks to the awesome class that Kelly Latevola is teaching over in the Altenew Academy Classrooms.  I'm such a huge fan girl of her, and this class has been amazing!  Here is a peek of what I'm sharing...

All of the products I've used are available in the Crafty Doodle Chick Store right now!

I would LOVE to see you over there so you can see my project in full, and I appreciate any time you have for visiting!

Reveal Wheel Fun on the Crafty Doodle Chick Blog!

Hello friends!  I know it's been quite a few days since my last post, but it's summer time which means camp drop offs, workbook activities, kid crafts, and lots of outdoor time, plus I just crammed for the previous HSN show with Crafter's Companion so I slowed things down a bit for the rest of this week.  But now I am back, and over on the Crafty Doodle Chick Blog, woot woot!  And I have a super fun and cute card to share using the new Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Die, Screen Time and Reveal Wheel Sentiment Sets...

For full details make sure you hop over to the Crafty Doodle Chick Blog!  Thanks so very much and have a great weekend!

Either I Drink My Coffee, Or....

Hello!  Today I am sharing a fun coffee loving kind of card to join in the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!
I am pretty much in love with all of the Coffee and Tea products from CAS-ual Friday Stamps, but the ones I've used today are pretty much my favorite, and they include the TO GO Cup Fri-die and the Hot Coffee Stamp Set...

This card came together quickly with the help of scrap patterned paper and the To Go Cup Fri-die Set.  After I assembled my cups I adhered them to more patterned paper and added my sentiment with a dark blue ink in the upper right corner.  This sentiment is the kind that makes you actually laugh out loud when you read it!  I forgot to take a picture of the inside, but I also added " Life is a Grind, press on. - Coffee " haha!!!  

If you love these awesome products then make sure you stop by the CAS-ual Friday Stamps Store to grab them for yourself... plus I have a discount code you can use!

Happy Crafting/Shopping/Hopping! :)
