Love the Monkey!

This monkey is awesome!  I love the smile on her face (I decided it was a girl since she has a bow in her hair).  The sentiment is perfect for the monkey's behavior. LOL 
Thanks for looking! Have a great day.

Rrrrribit....Means I love you in frog.

This is the card I made my husband for Valentine's Day.  I love the frog back ground paper.  I embossed the solid blue paper with cuttlebug embossing folder, then tore the edge of the paper.  The sentiment was typed on my computer then cut out and inked.  The frog is a Cricut creation. 

Thanks for looking.  Have a great day.

Missing You-- Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge

 As soon as I saw the Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge I *knew* I had to be an owner.  I mean really, how freakin cute is this??!!  I'm not crazy about the faces but I recently bought some Peachy Keen face stamps, I still need to play with them.  I hope my next batch of Paper Dolls will turn out even cuter with stamped faces.  I cut my paper doll body out in white paper then I colored her with my skin white copic marker. 

Thanks for looking!  Have a great day.

I adore you.... Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge

I'm really liking the color coordinating of this card.  The blue eyes of the sheep really shine through with the blue pattern paper background.  I used the cuttlebug to emboss the pink strip.  One of my favorite things to do is to tear my paper, which I did with the solid pink strip and the sentiment.  I inked the sentiment in my favorite Chestnut Roan colorBox ink.  Totally LOVE that for inking.  I ink just about everything in that particular color. 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

A Nifty Fifties Creation-- Hey there!

I have been using this particular fish like crazy on cards!  It reminds me of the mounted singing fish from a couple of years back that were so popular.  Especially with the big googlie eye!  It looks like it could burst out into song at any moment in time.  The fish was cut from the Cricut cartridge Nifty Fifties.  The red strip of paper was embossed...sort of looks like air bubbles from a fish tank!  I added a simple "Hey You" sentiment.  This would make a great guy card!  Crafty, yet masculine.

Thanks for looking!  Have a great day.

Cricut Nifty Fifties Happy Birthday Card

Doesn't this ice cream sundae look yummy??  This is one of  my favorite cuts from the Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge. 

I embossed the solid green cardstock, added a stamped Happy Birthday sentiment that was colored in with colored gel pens.  I used stickles on the cherry for additional sparkle.

Thanks for looking.  Have a great day.

Sparke Creations Rubber Stamp Challenge #30 entry

Time to post my weekly Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp Challenge #30I used my Swimming Lucy stamp by Sparkle Creations.  I colored Lucy in with copics.  I actually used blue chalk on the bottom of the stamp thinking it would make it look like water.  The theme of the challenge was to paper piece.  I went into my big stash of scraps and found paper to piece together.  I also found my brayer inside that stash of paper, LOL.  I used the brayer on the background paper.  I also used a border punch on the left edge of the stamped image. 

Thanks for looking!  Have a great day.  I'm looking forward to seeing everyone elses entries into this challenge!


Watercolor Pencils Card

This is a fun stamp!  I used watercolor pencils to fill in the colors then blended with a blending pen.  I didn't add a sentiment, but easily could have stamped "happy Mother's Day" or even a thinking of  you. 

Thanks for looking!  Have a great day.

In my thoughts Card

I absolutely adore the background paper of this card!  I added a Cricut critter with googlie eyes and a stamped sentiment.  I didn't want to cover up the background paper so I simply left it with these two elements.

Thanks for looking! Have a great day.

Another Sentiment Card

Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much....good advice, don't you think??  I stamped the image on white paper that I had cut with my Cricut, along with a black shadow.  Sorry, I don't remember the cartridge it came from.  I used a copic marker to highlight the yellow.  Placed two flowers together and added a big brad in the middle.  This is another card going to Operation Write Home to send out to the troops.

Thanks for looking!  I appreciate your comments.  Have a great day.

**My favorite Sentiment stamp**

I was window shopping at JoAnn's one day when I came across this stamp.  I was at a cross roads in my life and was not sure what was going to happen and what direction I would soon be heading.  As soon as I read this quote, I took it straight to heart.  I took the first step, a second step and a third step....finally the whole staircase came into view.  To me, this is more than a sentiment, it's a way of life.

Thanks for looking!

I used the Once Upon a Princess Cricut cartridge for this card.  I used my copic markers to color in her skin and the word Believe. 

I placed an order for Peachy Keen face stamps, I'm eargerly waiting for their arrival so I can play with different facial expressions for these Princesses. 

I emblossed and tore the solid pink strip.

Laughter Card

I love this card! It's very simple, but the sentiment is awesome and the big flower is eye catching.  I added a blingie brad into the center of the flower.  I used a white gel pen to dash around my sentiment.

Simple Happy Birthday Using Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge

I've been playing with my Cricut.  This image came from the Birthday Bash cartridge.  I embossed the background paper, added a strip of black paper with brads attached and it's done.  I really like the distressed look to the striped paper.

Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #29

This is my second entry into one of Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenges.  Last week I was the lucky random winner of one her stamps!  Woo hoo, I'm looking forward to a new stamp to play with!

The challenge for this week was to create a card based off of a fun sketch.  My background paper is from a past Junkitz line that I had around.  I used my Cricut to cut out the scallop and the "hot stuff" is a Piggy Tails rub on. 

Thanks for looking!


More Operation Write Home Cards-- Mother's Day themed

I made these cards for Operation Write Home to use as Mother's Day cards.  I used the same stamp with both cards, I just used different colored copic markers.

I also used different embossed cardstock behind the stamped image.  The vase image was stamped, colored, then cut out and raised up with pop dots for a 3D effect.

Thanks for looking!

Happy Birthday Birdie cards- From Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge

I made a number of these cards with this birthday birdie.  I used a different embossed background and color to make each card look a bit more individual.  I cut the birdie at 3 inches and used a white gel pen to make the dots on the legs.  I used pop dots on the party hat to make it stand out more and added googlie eyes.

Buster & Belle playing around

After taking five pictures in a row I struck gold when they both stood still and looked at me for this shot.  Belle was playing with her favorite toy, a $1 plastic squeaky bone from Michaels.  Whenever I tell her to go get her toy, this is what she'll come back with.  She loves to play fetch outside with her toy and me.

I need to scrapbook this picture!  =)
