Thanks for stopping by today and make sure to check out all of the rest of the design teams will be INKspired to CREATE something masculine after seeing them!
Happy Stamping!

Bokeh Hearts

Welcome back to Monday Montage!!!  We are back with another fabulous hop and I'm glad you are here with us!

I have a very simple card today with one of my favorite techniques...bokeh.  But rather than using circles for this technique, I used hearts today. 
I started with a taped off piece of water color paper which I inked up with Rose Red, a color I don't use very often, but should!  Once it was dry I added the simple Love sentiment from fun new Hello Life stamp set and a few little bokeh hearts.  Sweet and simple!
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Whisper White, Basic Black, Watercolor Paper
Ink ~ Rose Red, Memento, White Craft Ink
Stamp Set ~ Hello Life
The next couple of days are looking to be busy...trying to get everything done that I need to get done before I head to Orlando for Leadership...YIPPEE!!!!   I'll admit, I'm a little stressed for my hubby having to deal with the whole school routine while I'm gone.  The only other time I've been gone for more than over night is during Convention, which is during summer break when our schedules aren't packed full!  It will be good for him and my boys, right??!?  
Next stop in the hop is Cathy...I sure hope I get to hug her this week!!  Or if you want to hop backwards, you can hop on back to the amazing her style!!
  Thanks for hopping along with us today!
Happy Stamping!

Celebrate with Cake ~ Quick and Easy Birthday Card

How in the world is it Tuesday already?!!?  It always seems that the weeks you wish you had more time in them are the ones to fly by the quickest!  I've been trying to work ahead on some of my stamping in addition to finishing up my swaps for Leadership AND getting my family and house ready for me to be gone as well...I need more time!!  I've gotten good at pulling things off at the last minute, so I'm hoping that still holds true over the next few days.
One thing that I was able to pull of was this quick and easy birthday card for my friend Kim, who celebrated her birthday earlier this week.  (Sorry it was late Kim...I'm a slacker!)
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, So Saffron, Coastal Cabana
Ink ~ Coastal Cabana, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron
Stamp Set ~ Big Day (SAB)
Other Supplies ~ Retro Fresh Washi Tape
I love how washi tape can add so much to a card with just a few strips.  I REALLY need to be better about using it rather than just collecting it :-)
Thanks for stopping by today!  I'll be back tomorrow with an all new Friday Mashup challenge!
Happy Stamping!

Creative Blog Hop

Hello!  I'm back again with another post today...Happy Monday!  My new stampin' friend and Friday Mashup design team member, Amy of {crazy}beYOUtiful nominated me to participate in the Creative Blog Hop.  I was honored by her request and happy to join in this hop!  You can see Amy's hop post here.  I love her style!
I had a few new goodies delivered on Friday, so I was excited to dive in and play!
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Painted Blooms DSP
Ink ~ Rose Red, Blackberry Bliss, Wild Wasabi
Stamp Set ~ Butterfly Basics
Other Supplies ~ Scalloped Tag Topper, Extra Large Oval Punch, Butterfly Thinlits, Blackberry Bliss Satin Ribbon
Part of this blog hop also includes a chance to get to know each participant a bit better, so here are some fun facts for you:
1.  What are you working on right now?
I am currently working on my swaps for Leadership.  Being that it's just a little over a week away, I better get busy and finish them up, right?!?!
2. How does your work differ from others in your genre?
Honestly, my work is probably a blend of just about everyone else.  My style of stamping changes daily based on the mood I'm in, but I always love a clean and simple card.
3.  Why do you create what you do?
I love paper crafting in every way, shape and form, but I love to create to inspire others.  My stamp clubs are my favorite part of stamping.
4.  How does your creative process work?
I am a VERY early riser and start my morning off with a run, which is usually when my creative wheels start turning.  As soon as I get home and through the shower, those creative thoughts get put on to paper and turned in to a project.
Thank you for stopping by today and for hopping along in the Creative Blog Hop. 
Happy  Stamping!

Dear Santa...

Happy Monday friends!!!  Have you all recovered from the football games yesterday?!?!?  How 'bout those Seahawks?!?!?  It's going to be a few days before I have my voice back I think!  We had lots of celebrating going on at my house last night :-)
The girls over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration are celebrating in their own crafty way with a new layout sketch! 
This two page layout was the perfect way to showcase photos from our trip to Coeur d'Alene last month for my twins 9th birthday celebration.  We gave them the choice of having a party with their friends or taking a surprise trip to somewhere fun with mom and dad.  They surprised us by choosing to take a trip with us (they still like us at 9 years old...hope this continues!) and had a dozen different guesses about where it was we were going.  They were SUPER excited when we pulled up to Triple Play, an indoor waterpark, bowling alley and arcade.  They were also surprised by a fun Christmas Light Cruise around the Coeur d'Alene resort.  The lights were amazing!!!  And the best part...seeing the excitement in their eyes when Santa read their name from the "Good List".  I love the fact that they still believe in Santa :-) 
We never had the opportunity to visit Santa this year, but they were happy to sit on {statue} Santa's lap at the arcade!
This is a trip that we will all remember for years to come, even more so since I documented my MDS!
Be sure to check out the other fantastic layouts and be sure to join in the fun!  We love to see what you create!
Happy Stamping!!

When Life Hands You Lemons... life!
I'm sure it has to do with the New Year still being fresh in my mind...goals and resolutions and all, but I've been working really hard at finding the positive in everything and not letting the little things get me down.  I love the simple little sentiment "Love Life" in the A Happy Thing stamp set, which you can earn for FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration.  Certainly some words to live by...

Happy Stamping!

Miss Ellie "Bee"

A few months ago my hubby and I were tossing around the idea of getting another dog after losing our Maggie dog last February.  Since we already have a GIANT yellow lab, we knew we wanted a smaller dog.  Well, we got a smaller dog...a teeny-tiny, itty-bitty smaller dog and I love her to pieces!  Her name is Ellie, or Ellie B, and she is a teacup Chiweenie (Chihuahua and wiener dog mix).  We got her right before Halloween, so I had to dress her up!  Every little dog has to be dressed up, right?!?! 
After I brought Miss Ellie home, my mom fell in love with her and wanted one too.  There had been one female in the litter left, but a friend of mine had taken her before my mom had made up her mind.  She was pretty bummed out :(  After a couple of weeks, my friend decided they were unable to keep the puppy because they were gone from home too much due to work and sporting events for her girls, and she asked if my mom was still interested in the puppy.  Of course she was!!!  So, on Halloween day, Miss Maddy, (or Brown Dog, as my youngest calls her) came to live with my parents and gets to spend her days at my house while my parents work.  These two tiny terrors are the best of friends and have so much fun together!  I'm so happy we have both of them.  AND my BFF has one of the other sisters too! 

I pulled my inspiration for these pages from this week's and last week's challenge over at MDS Monday.  I did alter the sketch for this weeks challenge so I could include both pictures...I just had to have both of them on the page!
Happy Wednesday and Happy Stamping!!!
