Inspiration Wednesday


GOOD MORNING my sweet friends & welcome to another "Inspiration Wednesday!".  
Today is kind of a bittersweet post & I just could not find myself to do a video for it.  I "literally" just found out yesterday that a fellow design team member & friend lost her long battle with cancer over the weekend.  She was Miss Vivienne Holden also known as "Sweet Viv" & I was lucky to have met her through Peachy Keen Stamps.  Just being on the same team with her was SUCH an inspiration to me.  She was the sweetest person who was always so positive & left me the BEST comments on my blog! I remember getting the sweetest messages from her when I first started making stamps & one of her famous lines were "Another Smasher" release! :) Sweet Viv will TRULY be missed by ALL of her friends in the crafting community including myself.  I send my condolences to her family & her fur babies across the pond.

Now onto my special card today.  This card was inspired by Miss Nikki's tribute card she created for Sweet Viv HERE.  This was a set that the TALENTED Miss Kathy (owner of Peachy Keen Stamps) designed for Miss Vivienne a while ago.  So Miss Nikki thought it would be a great idea for all of us who have this stamp set to create a card in Sweet Viv's honor.  If you do not have this set & would like to also create a card,  you can download it for free in the Peachy Place HERE

This card took me almost 2 hours to watercolor!  The only reason why it took that long is because I would watercolor a section, then walk away! lol…. I wanted it to be PERFECT & I wanted to do Sweet Viv's special stamp set "PROUD".  I used my FAVE watercolors Winsor & Newton.  In addition to the "Vivienne & Friends" set, I used 2 sets of mine as well.  The sentiment is from "Treasured Moments" & the flowers are from "Window Sentiments & Flowers Stamp set".   These are not available in my store because I am in the process of revising them soon. 
I thought by adding the flowers in the background would spice up my card a tad! ;)  I also used my ruler to create a sidewalk so it wouldn't look like she was walking on air!  Last I added some shimmer from my clear Wink of Stella to her & her doll's hair bows & to her shoes.  I am very happy with how this came out! THANK GOD for skinny paint brushes because those flowers were extra small! lol….



Creating a card or project with this set is our way to honor Viv's memory and let her family across the pond know just how special she was to us. Here's the link to The Peachy Place where you'll find Nikki's card, and a link to her blog https://www.facebook.com/groups/419054411574091/
You can ALSO download for free this Peachy Keen's "Vivienne & Friends" in the Peachy Place as well.

Thank you all for stopping by my sweet friends.


P.S.  Sweet Viv….I hope I done you PROUD my friend.  Rest in Peace sweet Angel….

Tag it Tuesday!



GOOD MORNING my sweet friends & welcome back to another "Tag it Tuesday!"
First of all, I just wanted to let you all know that I probably won't be able to post Monday through Thursday like I would LOVE to :(  I am trying to balance everything in my crazy BUSY life! I will for sure post 3 times a week with the exception of release week! Like always, my AMAZING team will have something for you! :)  
So I figured the day I don't post a "new item", I'd thought I would share an "oldie but goodie" project with all of you! 
This is tag that I created last year using some FUN products!  You can see the original post to this HERE on my blog!  There is a minor change since you have seen this last!  I have revised one of the sets which was "Beary Special Thoughts revised".  The links I have in my original post are not up to date so I put the corrected links below of what I used!   If you would like to see a video on how I created this, you can see it HERE!

Do Over Thursday!


GOOD MORNING my sweet friends & welcome to another "DO OVER Thursday!" Today my team & I are recreating cards that we have done in the past that we were not too happy with! ;) 

Okay, here is my "original" version of this card!  I remember when I made this card & after I took the pictures of it, I did NOT like it anymore :(  So I KNEW one day I will try to redeem myself with this one!  lol…..


So now onto my new version of this card!  It's funny how us crafters can see how much we have grown "craft wise" over the years!  Is it bad to admire your OWN card???  Because I LOVE my newly revised version of this card! :)  I used an "OLDIE" but most DEFINITELY STILL A GOODIE... my "Coffee Break"REVISED.  I will ALWAYS remember when I released this set almost 4 years ago I could NOT get enough of it!  It's funny because when I searched this set on my blog….a TON of projects showed up using it! lol…..I guess I can't keep a secret that I do INDEED LOVE my coffee! ;)

What a Treat Wednesday!

Good morning my sweet friends & welcome to another What a Treat Wednesday! Today Miss Brigit & Miss Ruthie has the most GORGEOUS treats for you today!! Click on each name to visit each blog! 





I hope you all enjoy Miss Brigit's & Miss Ruthie's FABULOUS treats today!!!

Okay, I had every intention on making a treat for today, but Anthony had a game!  When we came back, my boys told me that they ran out of cereal & milk.  Then I realized that we needed more bread too!  So, since I make this for them...it takes a LITTLE time to prepare so I had to do my motherly duties! ;)  Of course I could've rushed to the store & picked this up, but I'd rather just make it! 

Ever since I purchased my bread machine last year, we LOVE LOVE having fresh bread! the boys LOVE having their sandwiches for lunch on this bread instead! Now, if I absolutely have NO time to make the bread, of course I will buy it, but 90% of the time I make it! Using only 6 ingredients is awesome to make this yummy bread! I use the recipe book that comes with the machine! 
I picked up my bread machine from Amazon HERE! I was surprised that it was a decent price!  Well, here is what my bread looks like & I LOVE that Bamboo Slicer  that I use to help slice the bread for sandwiches.



Next I made some almond milk which is SUPER EASY to make! All I use is 
~ 1 cup of almonds
~ 4 cups of water
~ 2 dates
~ 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 
I use my vitamix blender & mix it all up, strain it through a nut bag & now you have a non-dairy FRESH yummy milk! It literally ONLY takes 2 minutes to blend. It's best to use a high power blender! I had to put the milk in these 3 separate jars because I had some juices in my bigger milk jar! 


Last I made them granola cereal! Of course, I failed to take a picture of mine, but this is what it looks like AND this is the recipe I used! It is SOOOO YUMMY!  I usually go between 3 different granola cereals for the boys, but this one is my FAVE!  You can see the FULL recipe HERE! 
I usually have this cereal with sliced bananas & the almond milk which makes the PERFECT breakfast!  My boys LOVE granola cereals & I have not purchased any cereal from the store for at least 7 months now! FRESH is way better for you! 

Okay, I hope you didn't mind me sharing this with you! 

Thank you ALL for stopping by, have a FABULOUS DAY & I will see you back here tomorrow! :) xoxo
