Doggy Christmas Card

Hello all, 


I made this quick and easy card tonight for another challenge.  I am trying to get as many challenges done before I have to pack up my stuff.  Our house sold and we close on the 10th of December.  So, lots of packing to do!   I am going to wait till the last minute to pack up my supplies.  I know I will buy a few things on black friday.  I so want the plum color cricut at Walmart.   Also, the lites will be $20 each and I want a few of them.  We will see if I can scrap up some money for it.  I fill like I've been so selfish lately buying stuff for myself and I have three kids I need to start shopping for. 
Anyways here is my card for BBT2 challenge.  The challenge is to use the dog from "Create A Critter".  I just got it in the mail Saturday and couldn't wait to use it.  I laid everything out in my Gypsy.  I think I made the dog a little big for my Peachy Keen Stamp and the hat.  Oh well, I wasn't about to cut it again. I still really like the card and hope you do too.  The sentiment is from C.C. Designs, set is called winter.  I just love their sentiment stamps.  Although they have to be cut.  


Thanks for stopping "bye".

Spooky Tree Card: Jitterbuggin Challenge

Hello all,
It is like challenge crazy out here in the craft world.  I have a list quite long of challenges that I would like to enter but not likely going to happen.  I did however do this card for Jitterbuggin Challenge.  It was three requirements: A sketch, add a tree and add something yellow.  I think I'm the only one still in halloween mold because almost everyone has Christmas or Fall trees.  I have been loving this tree since I got the "Happy Haunting" cart.  I sponged the background to look like a  fall night at dawn.  I put little bat's in the corners.  I think the card is cool.  I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping "bye".

Sets of Cards for Family!

Hello all,
I have been very busy this week making cards for my Mother-in-law and my favorite cousin.  Cards are the gifts that keep on giving.  My mother-in-law loves the stamp of the lady holding the martini glass.  I knew I had to make a set with her on all the cards.  They are all over the place in colors and styles but I know she'll love it.  My cousin said that she would like shades of pink and teal/aqua so I knew that would be fun.  The cards are all so cute.  I didn't have enough memory to take pictures of them individually, so you can see them as a set.  I hope they like them.  Thanks for stopping "bye".

M.A.G Challenge

Hello all, 
I made a card for M.A.G first challenge. Their challenge is to use Celebration cartridge page 92.  That's cool but it's only balloons.  I am in the process of making a gift set of cards for my cousin's birthday and thought why not.  She wants her cards in shades of pink and teal/aqua.  I have quite a few Peachy Keen stamps and only used them twice so this was a great way to use them.  Quick and easy card....I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping "bye".

MPS: 30 minute color Challenge

I watched the video of Robyn and Karlee late Friday night and got right up, timed myself and made this card.  I just figured out how to upload my pictures from my new camera.  It was so much fun trying to think of something easy and quick.  I'm in full Halloween mode so I knew I had to make a Halloween card.  I love it! There can be pink in Halloween, pink is not one of my colors so the card is mostly purple.  Purple is my favorite color like Karlee.  I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping "bye".

Hello Kitty Card

Hello, today my daughter and I finally got around to making a card together. She has been wanting to make a card for a while now and she saw this Hello Kitty sizzix die I got for $2 a long time ago. I had never used it or any sizzix die for that matter. I am not a fan, I guess the cricut has spoiled me. My hat is off to those of you that have been doing this in the pre-cricut era; you all have lots of talent and patience. I hated cutting it out over and over to get all the colors I wanted. But, my daughter loved it and we had fun, of course I did all the work except for the glue on the backs. I also had her stamp the sentiment. It was supposed to be a quick card but not with all the pieces you have to cut and peice together. However we loved how it turned out. I hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping "bye".

Think Pink...Cuttlebug Spot and Creations with Christina Challenge #2

It's breast cancer awareness month and I have been wanting to make a card for sometime. My husband's aunt was just diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer, so it's very close to home right now. Do a self breast exam, it's very important to catch it early.
So, here is my card for two challenges. This was my first time paper piecing and it was fun to do. I love how it turned out. I used Stardream metallic paper for the back ground. I embossed it with the swirls and swiss dots cuttlebug folders. I used spellbinders labels nine. The stamp is from a inkadinkado set.
I feel like it's card making month or something. I got so many ideas in my head for cards. Can't wait to make more cards. Thanks for stopping"bye".

Hello Again...My Pink Stamper Challenge

It's been a long time since I posted something. I have to say, the ladies that post everyday or every other day with multiple children are awesome. I have been prepping my house for sale since July. With all the repairs, painting, decluttering and staging I have just not wanted to do anything. Plus I have been doing invitation, menus and programs for a 10.10.10 wedding. I can't wait for this to be over so I can make cards again. My daughter is ready too!
Ok, so enough of the talking about my absence. I did make a card today, I was so excited about the RAK I joined for cartridge cuts. I don't have "A Childs Year" and wanted some of the cuts and GrammaJ on the MB did them for me. So, I couldn't wait to do a card with them. I won a stamp set from Pink by Design called "A Haunting We Will Go" so I couldn't wait to use them also. I like my card I used one of my favorite Martha Stewart punches and some Martha Stewart pattern paper. Quick and simple, I went to My pink stamper blog today, as I do everyday and saw today's challenge and thought great timing. So, here it is....

Throwback Thursday challenge #60...

Hello all, here is my card for this week's throwback challenge over at My Creative Time (very last mintue). The challenge was to use Zooballo but, if you didn't have Zooballo, make an animal card. I have Zooballo, so that's what I used on the waves and the Narwhale. I tried something new this week that was inspired by Theresa at Crafting the web. I just love her artistic work. She makes all of her own back grounds with her inks and sponges. I tried my hand at inking my back ground and let me tell you it's not easy getting the sponge look to come out right. I like the way mine turned out. I did make a few mistakes but that happens. I tried to layer my waves like Jeannie at A place for my cards, and it turned out nice too. I hope you like my entry. Thanks for stopping, "bye".

BBT2, Mojo #146, C4C44 and The CuttleBug spot Challenges...

So this week I tried to fit 4 challenges onto one card, needless to say that was not the best idea. I'm not totally happy with my card. BBT2 challenge was to use the Going Places cat or dog. I picked the cat becuase I was making this card for my cousin(not giving it to her now). Mojo Monday challenge is always a sketch, that is were I got the layout. Crazy for Challenges was to use two ribbons: I used a paw ribbon and a teal/blue ribbon. Last was The Cuttlebug Spot challenge and you were to use a 2x2 folder or die cut. I used a 2x2 flower. This is the last time I do too many challenges on one project...LOL

Old Project with ZooBalloo...

So, today at My Creative Time Emma's "Throw Back Thursday Challenge" is to use ZooBalloo. I will be making a card tomorrow for the challenge, but today I wanted to show a project I made with ZooBalloo for my little cousin. This project was to create a habitat: I thought immediately about penguins and how easy that would be to make. It has been changed quite a bit, by my cousin and his mother, but here is the project I created for my cousin. My ZooBalloo "Habitat".

Favorite stamp...

I am just loving this sexy lady.  I will make this style card many times over.  I don't use copic markers at this time...I've bought a few promarker sets and love them.  They don't have as many colors as copic and don't have the brush tip but they do have a smaller tip I love.  They are alcohol inks and blend well! When I get all the promarkers I will move onto get some copic markers.  I hope you like the card.

Thanks for looking!

The kids and I made cards for fathers day...it was so much fun!  One card was inspired by a card Emma of Creative Time made.  I wish I had a gypsy, I have DS but the computer it's on is soooooo slow.  I hope you enjoy the cards.

Thanks for looking!

HELLO



I have a blog! WOW! I've been wanting one for some time, but I’ve been too scared and very busy doing my research for my stationary business to ever start one. I have fallen in love with soooooo many blogs since I got my cricut.
 I rented a cricut from a local scrapbook store last year, to cut out some balloons and 30's, to make some cards for my friends and just had to have one. Then I found Robyn's (My Pink Stamper) videos on youtube and the cricut message board and a MONSTER was born. That was last July! I have close to 50 cartridges and still want more. I have gone button, ribbon, rhinestone, border punches, stamps, markers, adhesives and paper CRAZY in one year.
 I started the research for my business last year and got so sidetracked. When I did all the details and stationary for my cousins wedding I knew I had to do that for a living. The way it made me feel to see everyone’s response was AMAZING. Well hello Blog world I'm here and ready to show off my new addiction to card making.
