City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 268 ~ Let's go Nautical

This week at

We have a new DT

Please hop over to CCCB and welcome our new DT

And the theme for this week set by Samra is....

Let's go Nautical

this gotta be the fastest card I ever made...

well, I was making my blog post and realized that the project I intended for this week doesn't look so good, and it was less than 2 hours before this post should go online, so I ran into my craft room, found a ready cut cover plate in white (I used the cut out stripes for another project last week), and found the red anchor, another piece intended for other project but end up in the bin

layered them on a piece of blue denim patterned paper, stamp the sentiment, tada.... all done

now hop over to 

and join in the fun

PTI June Blog Hop Challenge

Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop Challenge

Here's the inspiration photo

Here's my card......

I started with this cover plate, cut them twice, once with white cardstock and the second with black

I lined the stripes on the smaller piece of white cardstock, layered it with vellum to tone it down and then stitch the four sides

the burlap flower was cut with the above flower die, paint it the day before and let it dry before I pair them up with another handmade flower

 the sentiment is another die from PTI

I really like it, do you?

Our Beautiful World 102 ~ Tiny

This week at

The word is.....


I planted some Zinnia weeks ago....

it was awesome to see some TINY sprouts peeking through the soil....

some of them grow......

bigger and bigger by the day.....

and some of them did not.....

for the ones that not sprouting after 2 weeks or more, I dumped the soil back into my big pot of potting soil mix.

one day.....

I was surprised to see some TINY green in that big pot of potting soil mix...

wow, pretty amazing that these TINY little seeds are strong and determined to be alive.

Please hop over to

and join in our TINY fun!
