Happy Thursday!

I've got a jawdropping card,
a bit of housekeeping news,
and an exciting announcement!

Where should I start???

Girl!!  Diane has completely knocked my socks off with this!
I adore the double negative cut and then the inlaid die! Squeal!!
She used our Heart Board Fri-Dies and some awesomeness from our
Calling All Sistahs collection: Sistahs Fri-Dies and Hope Ribbon

I could look at that all day!

Now for the housekeeping...
My website provider is doing a little migration tonight.
I don't know if that means they are flying north for the summer or what,
but there is a better than good chance that my website may be down
starting now through about 6am tomorrow.
Don't worry, it will be back :)

Last but not least...
Set your watch to join us at 9 am eastern on Saturday!
We will be joined by the Imagine Crafts team
for a fantastical blog hop featuring
CAS-ual Fridays and Imagine Crafts products!

Woot Woot!!

Happy Wednesday!

Today's card is from Girl Friday Julia.
For those of you who don't know, Julia packed up ALL of her crafty supplies about 2 months ago and moved to a new place for a really big work project that was supposed to be taking all of her time for a few months. Well, you know how those work projects got delayed, she got bored and ended up creating a new small stash of crafty goodies for herself to pass the time.
She's creating with limited supplies to that's pretty cool. Check out what she did...

She created a one layer card using our Pretty Posies!
Look how perfectly awesome it is!

I'm especially loving the bright pop of color in the center of this flower
and the soft gray shading around the edge.
It's the little details that make things, don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Tuesday!

Have I ever told you how much I love sequins?
Have I ever told you how much I love shaker cards?
Girl Friday Nora combined the two and created a really happy encouragement card.

She made her own stripes with ink-love them!
and dressed up them up with Wallflower stamps and 4 Petal Fri-Dies.
I love the little flower bouquets she made!
That awesome sentiment embossed in white is from our Dream Then Do

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Sunday!

Girl Friday Shona is here today with a delightful card.

She stamped Tin Roof on a Scallop Tag Fri-Die and layered it with another tag cut from a coordinating color.
The big fun smile is from our Smiling Fri-Dies and
the cute little banner sentiment is from Pretty Posies.

This would be a great encouragement card!

Please join us again tomorrow when we announce the winners from our

Happy Wednesday!

We are halfway to Friday folks! Hang in there, the weekend is coming!!

I've got a fabulous card for you today from Girl Friday Lydia.

Ohmygawsh is that super pretty or what?
She embossed the big flower from Pretty Posies over and over in white on white.
Now that alone looks really pretty but then she washed in some water colors and bazinga!

This totally makes me want to run to my studio and make one!

Happy Tuesday!

I've got some exciting news that I just couldn't wait to share with you.
We've got a new Girl Friday joining the Ink Squad!!

Now you won't see much of her here until after she moves to a new state next month, 
but it's too hard to keep big secrets that long so I'm going to let her spill her beans now instead!

Please give a warm welcome to...

I guess you classify her style as Clean And Simple but
she is not afraid to follow or challenge her mojo 
so I think I'd call her more Clever and Cool :)
Laurel is always up to something in her craft room 
trying new products, new techniques, and sharing them 
both on her blog and youtube.
She also runs a super cool facebook group called
that has lots of inspiration shared by her and her members. 

Here's a little teaser of the kind of fun you can expect from her...

She got inky with Butterbows.
I love the range of color she created and the fun pattern she made by stamping the butterfly rainbow image twice.
This is such a fun set of cards, each featuring a different sentiment from Butterbows.

I'm so excited to have her here 
and we can all look forward to her inky creations 
once she gets her craft room unpacked later next month :)
In the meantime check out her links above and get to know her a bit :)

Happy Saturday!
Raise your hand if you thought the weekend would never get here.
***raises hand and stands on her tippy toes***

I am looking forward to a couple days of sunshine
and it starts with today's card from

It's so simple and so perfect!
She used the negative cut from a past project with the Smiling Fri-dies.
She then used repeated stamping with various colored inks with her misti to achieve a gradient look on the sun from the Sunbeams set. 

I love how this looks!!
Have a super weekend!
