Whew!! Made it by the seat of my pants!

Okay, so I have been on vacation and just got home yesterday morning at 2am.  So, that means no crafting for the past 10 days....but, I've made up for my crafting sabbatical since I got home.

Yesterday I made 13(!) ATCs (that's Artist Trading Cards for those of you not familiar with ATCs) for a swap that I'm involved in and just five (yes 5!) minutes ago I decided to enter a card in the Fresh Squeezed Stamps Squeeze-A-Palooza card challenge #8.  You might be thinking "What's the big deal about entering a card in the Squeeze-A-Palooza card challenge?"  Well, since you asked.....

The challenge closes in a little over 4 hours so I am definitely making it "by the seat of my pants"....capri pants of course, it is almost summer!  And speaking of summer (how convenient), the theme for the FSS Squeeze-A-Palooza challenge is "SUMMER".

I am also entering the card in the Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge #82 and the Twist of Faith Clean and Simple (CAS) Challenge #39. 

Alrighty - here is the card:


Supplies used:

Fresh Squeezed Stamps - Happy Hexagon stamp set
Sentiment - Kraftin' Kimmie "Little Orphan Annie" stamp set
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics (my fave)
Flower stem - Stampin' Up "Send Me Soaring" stamp set
button and twine - my stash



  1. Super fun bloom! thanks for joining in on the Squeeze-A-Palooza fun!

  2. I love hexes! I will have to check out Fresh Squeezed for that stamp set. Love the flower. Thanks for sharing!

    I saw you at WAW. Come and see what I've done lately.

  3. Adorable card, Donna! So glad you made it home in time to play along!! Thank you for playing along at Squeeze-A-Palooza! :)

  4. This is just SO darling! I love the soft yellow. The flower reminds me of my childhood when we used to pull off the petals one at a time and say, "he loves me, he loves me not"....remember that? Thanks for sharing this adorable card in our challenge this week. Your participation is always SUCH a blessing to me, Donna. God bless you as you create!
