I love cherry pie.

I have this friend. Her name is Maggie, and she can do everything. I'm not joking. Every year on my birthday, she makes me a cherry pie, from scratch. And when I say "from scratch", I mean she actually picks the cherries herself, preserves her own pie filling, and of course, makes the crust herself. I wouldn't be surprised if she makes everything from memory and doesn't measure anything. She's just that good. The best part? She acts like it's no big deal. Here is my thank-you card for this year's pie (I was so excited to get WMS "Blessed By You" so I could use that pie stamp!):
...and cherry pie for breakfast is the best thing ever!
Paper: PTI White, Pure Poppy
Ink: SU Creamy Caramel, Mellow Moss, Real Red marker
Stamps: WMS Blessed by You, PTI Everyday Button Bits, Everyday Classics
Other: Nesties Labels #1, PTI Pure Poppy Satin ribbon, buttons, dimensional tape

Birthday Card for My Sister

I made this birthday card for my sister, and I love how it turned out.  This large stamp is from Concord & 9th, called Hello, Lovely.  I colored it with Altenew's new markers, then added touches of a gold Wink of Stella marker.  I didn't want the sentiment to compete with the image, so I embossed it in gold on vellum.  Beautiful stamp!

Lil' Inker Designs Mini Release Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  So glad you're here, hopping with us.  (Go here to see the full blog hop order.)  I am excited to show you this brand new stamp from Lil' Inker Designs, which is part of their May Mini Release.  Leave comments on any of the blogs in this hop to enter to win one of the new stamp sets, the new cover plate, or the angel pets goodies!  Details on the Lil' Inker Designs Blog.

This stamp is called Never Regret Being Kind. (Keep hopping, and you'll see more!)

One of the things I love most about this hobby is that it is inherently kind.  So what could be better than a stamp that encourages even more kindness?  Such a great sentiment!

This stamp is easy to use as the focal point of a easy, in fact, that I made 4 right out of the gate!  Each one uses a different technique--this stamp is so versatile.

For my first, I heat embossed the sentiment in white on steel grey cardstock.  I then colored over the embossing with my Copics for a multicolored effect…

Fresh Cut Poppies

I love poppies.  Every time I see a poppy stamp set, I am drawn to it.  I've had my eye on this set from The Ton for a while, and I was lucky enough to borrow it from a friend.  It is really easy to line up the layers, and I love the realistic look.
The sentiment is from Right At Home, and I happen to really love the quote and its author

He really did.  I'm so glad.
