Just Us Girls #644



Anyone who knows me, knows that I love to make butterfly cards.  Just had to create a card for JUGS
this week, as the word is butterflies.  It's been quite a while since I have made a card for Jugs and would love to get back into a routine to join my favorite challenges.


I used a technique from Gina K. where she scribbles Zig markers on a page and then spritzes water on them to blend the colors.  I used Bristol paper as that is the best paper for me to get Zigs to move.  Then cut out the butterflies with Rubberneck's Butterflies are Free dies.  And a branch from one of Gina's sets.  I had a lot more butterflies in this color and a green color but had 3 little munchkins in my craft room and they seemed to disappear. (not the munchkins, the butterflies.)  These were the only 2 left.  Lol
I used Gina's Fizzy Stencil in Applemint for the background.


Thanks for stopping by.

Florida Vacation with the Triplet Family

Just got back from a 12-day trip to Florida, to Ramie's hometown of St. Petersburg.  
Her family has a home on the Gulf of Mexico. Her grandad passed about 10 years ago, but still wanted the family to use it. The home was built in the 60's and is a trip into the past.  It still has the wallpaper, turquoise stove and oven, purple bathrooms and kids rooms still decorated with their stuff.  You can see bits and pieces in the pictures.  Lol

Tyler (boyfriend) and Avery

Ramie's sister and family

Justin and Mom

Connor & Anna
St. Pete Beach
Storm is brewing

Wickie Wachee wading pool.
This is one of the many Spring Water Parks they have where the water is a nice 72 degrees instead of like bath water in the ocean.  I loved it.  So, refreshing.  I didn't get any pictures of the spring itself.

Anna was the little water baby.  

Little miss daredevil and the boys coming down the slide normally.

Anna, Connor and Grandma

We went to see the Little Mermaid show at Wickie Wachee, with real mermaids and of course Anna saw this Mermaid dress and had to have it.  Justin picked a shark and Connor an alligator.
On a Dolphin crusie.  If you look closely, you will see a dolphin behind the wake on the other boat.

Ramie bought a bead kit for the kids to make bracelets and necklaces.  Avery is helping out.

Anna & Dad fishing.  She actually caught one

Brad caught a small baby shark.  He released it back to the ocean but was so excited to catch it.

Visiting with blogging friends is so much fun.  
You may recognize, Nancy Kearn Leppek,
She took me to this cute cafe, called 2D cafe in downtown St. Pete.  

I know this was a very long post, but hope you enjoyed pictures from our trip.
Felt so good to be back in the PNW where it is cooler in the morning and evening.  Or course today it is supposed to get to 97.  UGH.



Thanks for stopping by.

CAS Christmas July 2022



This month Barb would like us to use a Santa on our cards for CAS Christmas.
Come and check out all of the inspiration created by our team.  Remember, Christmas is only 6 months away.  Yikes, it seems like we were just decorating for Christmas.

Welcome to our wonderful Guest Designer



This is a set that I got from Col (my  Bff) for Christmas.  I was happily surprised when I opened the stamp set and found an envelope with a bunch of colored images.  Yah! cause I am leaving the end of June for vacation and I should have had these done already.
