and my title is 
Hop on over to check it out with a mini picture tutorial.
I would love to hear what you think!


Design Team Spotlight for Kitty Bee Designs

Happy Aloha Saturday!
If you're stopping by from 
If you're a regular...MAHALO 
for coming back!!

On to today's card...

I was going for an Easter themed card,
but quickly realized I may not get it out in time, so 
I decided to change the sentiment to something a bit more general ;o)
The sentiment was die cut from
 Penny Black's Words of Gratitude.
If you've been following my blog you'll know I've been obsessed with 
Deco Foil and you can see my VIDEO HERE and HERE.

I used some American Crafts Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic pattern paper,
with a that fabulous rainbow washi tape up the side.
The Kitty Bee Design Bun was colored with Tombow markers
and a blender for a watercolor look. 

I think you can see the foil shine better in the above picture.
I think the muted background helps balance the colored image, rainbow washi
and that bit of color in the banner to tie everything together.
That's it for me!

Aloha Friday Challenge with Kitty Bee Design

Happy Aloha Friday!
Today I'm playing with the
with the theme
sponsored by the sweet images from 

I have a lot of great childhood memories 
of Easter with the family and hope to carry on the
tradition with my kids.  We still do Easter egg hunts
in the same backyard that I did when I was my kids' age!

For today's card I got to play with

In the true spirit of Easter I went with a lot of color!
I printed Amalia out (2x) and die cut her a little off center using the
Avery Elle Finished Frames die.
I then stamped the sweet 
I masked both images and used distress inks 
to create to colorful background.
I removed the masks and used copic markers to
color the images and create a bit of shadowing on the ground.
I finished off the top corner with a banner die from Lawn Fawn
and stamped out the sentiment on top, then glued to the panel.

So that's it for me!  
I hope you'll join us for the challenge.

I am super excited to be a part of this fabulous 
blog hop in honor of all those that have Autism
or touched by someone who does.

This is my precious goddaughter, Rooke.
 She was diagnosed with Classic Autism around the age of one.
Rooke is now 6 years old and loves her iPad and EVERYONE elses!
She is a whiz with all things electronic and loves hugs and kisses.

This card is in honor of her and everything she has taught me
and my entire ohana/family.

Lawn Fawn for Studio Calico Future Is Bright, Lawn Fawn Stitched Scallop Border
Lawn Fawn ink in Deep Sea, copics, Lawn Trimmings, Glossy Accents, Wink of Stella pen in Clear Glitter

Here's a closeup to catch the shine of the bulb in the glossy accents
and Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.

It's hard to tell, but the bulb was colored with copics,
fussy cut and attached with foam tape.
Then I added the glossy accents.

Hope you all continue blog hopping and be sure to link
up if you would like to contribute!

A BIG MAHALO to all our generous sponsors...

I WHEELIE need more birthday cards!

I am having a blast crafting today!
It's amazing the things you can do when both kids are away!!
Any of you going to be a part of True Stamp 2015 on Saturday?
My entire family knows it's my personal day off to craft to my hearts content.
Today was a bonus!

In my efforts to make more birthday cards, 
I've opted for this Lawn Fawn mini set.
They have a bunch of them perfect for any occasion
and to make quick cards with sweet sentiments!

Let me show and tell one of the cards I made...

Lawn Fawn I Wheelie Like You, Lawn Fawn Sophie's Sentiment, Lawn Fawn year Two,
Lawn Fawn Clark's ABCs, Lawn Fawn Happily Ever After, Hero Arts Ombre ink 
in Pool to Navy, copics, Chickeniddy enamel hearts

I quickly stamped a background in Hero Arts Soft Sand ink
and used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Square for a panel.
The rest was colored, die cut and assembled.

For inspiration I used the latest

and since this also fits the 
of  Anything Goes...I'll link there too!

Again in an effort to make more cards I've decided
to make tags with the same stamp set.
That way I can either quickly pop it on a card
or add it to a gift bag!

I'll be back with more so stay tuned...
MAHALO for stopping by!!

More to Love!
