Bonus Post!

 I have a bonus post for you!!!! I actually have a backlog of goodies that I have made and haven't gotten to post yet! Some were submissions but I scrapped two layouts and 4 cards last night while skyping with my friends! How fun is that!?!?!? Here is a very special card that I made that will be headed to a very special lady soon. It is for the Viva la Verve Sketch and the Color Throwdown #124 - which is honoring Katie Renz who was diagnosed with Cancer - to read more and or participate please check out the Throwdown Blog HERE. So here is the color challenge
I don't actually have Melon Mambo or Early Espresso so I had to make do! (Side note I really need to buy the new SU colors or at least get swatches so I can match!)
The colors reminded me of my new Basic Grey Hopscotch paper so I went to that for inspiration.
I also decide I wanted to try out some rolled paper flowers since I keep seeing them everywhere! Being mildly lazy and unconfident in my cutting skills I went on a search for a cut file and found it! YAY! So here is what I came up with.
The embossed panel is CB Floral Fantasy which I hadn't used in a while and just seemed to fit with this! I cut the oval out with Nestabilities and inked it with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. I cut 3 flowers of 2 different sizes out - rolled them up and added them! YAY! So quick and easy! They are spritzed with glimmer mist too. Here is a close up of the flowers.

 I used Verve's Plain Jain of this scripture, I hope it's ok, appropriate for someone with cancer - I just don't know! I can't imagine what Katie and her family are going through!
Thanks for looking (again) today!


  1. What a great card for Katie! Love those flowers! Thanks so much for playing along in this special Color Throwdown!

  2. Love this card! The colors are great and the flowers are so cute! I might need the hopscotch paper now!

  3. Tessa, this is stunning! I am sure that Katie is going to love it!
    I was thinking that same thing when while I was working on a card for her as well. But I think or I hope any way that just her knowing that we are praying for her and keeping them all in our hearts and minds that she will find comfort.
    I can't imagine either.
    I think I will post the card that I did for her this weekend.

    Thank you for sharing!

    Blessings and Hugs,


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment! It makes my day!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
