May your glass always be half full....

I love this.  I am one of those people who always likes to find the best in things and also always try to understand both sides of any issue but keep up beat as much as possible.  That is one of the reasons I love this stamp set so much.  Ad of course I love wine too--so that helps! 😁

Today's card uses the same set as my last post but in a little different way.  I mixed the wine glass  with some of the new Share What You Love Specialty paper..which by the way is amazing paper.  My favorite ever!  Thick and stunning.



Isn't this a fun card?  I love the mix.  I used  an older I spy sketch for the layout.  I love sketch challenges and have not had much time to play along with them lately.  But I do pin the ones I love and look back--when I remember!  😉






Here are the supplies used on this card--in case you want to recreate it yourself.

A card for my wine business partners....

Just making up some cards for my friends and team mates in my wine  business!  This card is specifically for a friend who joined the club but not my team (yet).  The cool thing is  if you join the club and get two friends to join your wine is FREE!  Sounds crazy, but it it is true.  This friend is a red wine lover so she chose to have all reds delivered to her home each month! You can get half and half or all white or all red.

Anyway, back to the card.  I had  so much fun coloring these images with my stampin  blends.  I just love these fun markers.  So worth every penny!  I love that there are so many new colors in this catalog!



Don't you think this is a fun card?  Couldn't be much easier (unless  that was designer paper--that would be crazy easy)


I hope my  friend enjoys it.  Want to make it yourself?  Here are the supplies used.  Product List

Now this is what I call RELAXING!

I could literally sit here in this chair all day long.  I combined my favorite chair (remember from yesterday--Colorful Seasons stamp set) with the fabulous Waterfront stamp set for this awesome scene.  I want to be sitting in that chair NOW!  What is your favorite way to relax?


I actually love the frame around this scene.  It was actually just a scrap of paper that was sitting on my desk!  It was perfect for what I had in mind.  I am a bit late to jump on the Waterfront stamp set  wagon--it has been out for a while and there are so many amazing samples out there.  Today I learned why everyone loves it so much--it makes these scenes so easy.  I will for sure get my moneys worth out of this set!

Here are the supplies for today's card...

A different Take Two Tuesday!

Yes, I do  know that it is Tuesday and that I normally share my Take Two Tuesday challenge card--you know, where I take an old card and remake it with current products and supplies.  But I am just struggling a bit getting back on track so I decided to post a second card with the same set I used in my last post--Colorful Seasons.  This really  is a great set and it kind of can fit a Take Two Tuesday--just a bit different, lol.  Forgive me???😏

I actually made a three cards with this set so far--and I absolutely love it!  So versatile!  You will have to wait until tomorrow for the other one though.  Here is  today's share.  In case you do not know I just love sunny warm weather--water and relaxing, a little wine goes really good with it too.  This is what I was feeling/thinking about when I created this card.



I just want to sit right there and read my book and enjoy a nice glass of wine.  So serene feeling.  I crated the background with an aqua pen and ink pads on a piece of watercolor paper.  The chair is stamped on regular whisper white and cut out.  The sentiment is stamped several times used the stamparatus to make sure it is nice and dark on the watercolor paper.  Wanted it to pop!  This chair is the whole reason I was drawn to this set!  Love it!

Quick and easy card--but I love the feel of it--going to send it to a friend who struggles with this time of year and all the chaos of the end of a school year.  So many exams and other things to worry about with our kids.  She can use the reminder to......

Just Breathe!

See you tomorrow!
