Feelin' Groovy?

Feelin' a little groovy?
Need to get into the groove?
If you answered YES to either of these questions, then you must have this new stamp set
from Ippity
 It's just been released today, so inquire about it if you don't see it listed in the stamp shop.

For my card I decided to do something a little different, although you really can't tell too much just from the photo.  I dusted off the 'ole coloring pencils, gave them a sharpen and went to work!
You know me, I cut out the image, flecked it with a bit of brown spritz and popped it onto the card with foam dots.  I wanted the baker's twine 'bow' to resemble the actual bow...for this, I stitched back and up (twice) the length of the bow runner and then tied into generous loops at the top.  A small dab of Zig glue holds down the ends of the baker's twine nicely.  Finish it off with a few colorful buttons and you. are. done.
Quick & Easy!
We're expecting up to 8 inches of rain over the next few days...much needed, but like everything else:  just wished it wouldn't all come at one time.  God has to be asking Himself "are these people EVER happy?"
So, if I don't float away, I'll be back in a day or two :)
Be Blessed


  1. What a groovy card...I love the car and how you wrapped twine around the top. Cute little buttons add such a great touch. Great design Shellye!!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
