I made this card for my sisters. When I saw the tiny Lil’ Grumpies on my newest Smeared Ink set, I knew I had to make them a card featuring these crazy little creatures.


Growing up, we 3 each had our “own” color. I was blue, Pam was green, and Monica was pink. Our rooms were in our color, if our mom bought us 3 of something, it was in our color, etc. So, of course I had to color in the Grumpies in “our” color as well!


I also tried to pick the Grumpies that I thought was most like each of us! And my sisters definitely thought that I picked the right ones!


They are colored in with colored pencils. And the “Sisters” is from an Alphabet set by Time Flies.


I added this to the inside. This sentiment is from the Lil’ Grumpies set. I love the sentiments that it comes with!

My family thought the card was great. Which of course makes me very happy! But, I may have to make one more of these so they don’t fight over the single card! Have an inspiring day!!!


How cute!! Love the story about the colors.

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
