Monster Hugs

Good morning everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend.  I know we did!  :O)  It's time for another round of Anita Be Stampin Challenges!  This week we're going with Layer It On as our theme...EASY!

I used the super cute Monster Hugs set for my card and embossed him with white embossing powder.  I layered and layered...there are 11 layers of paper on this baby...not to mention the layered flower!  I added some Divine Twine in Green Apple.  :O)  I used my awesome buddy, Cheri - aka Graphicat's May sketch for this little cutie.  Doesn't she make fab sketches?

Be sure to join us at the ABSC blog...you now have 2 weeks to play along with us!  Woot!  Check out the other teamies creations and see how you can be our next prize winner!  :O)

Sunshine on Fairy Wings...

Hey everyone!  I know you were missing my Anita Be Stampin project on Tuesday...we decided to have the challenges on the ABS challenge blog go 2 weeks for a while to give our fearless leader less to do while she in the process of moving.  :O)

I made a layout of my sweet daughter, Ariel, posing for me just before heading out to her Spring Fling.  I used the Ariana digital image and colored her in Photoshop CS2. I hope you like it!

Preview Day 2 at Simply Betty Stamps!

Hey, hey, hey!  Good morning everyone!  I hope you all had a fantabulous Mother's Day yesterday.  I'm here with Preview Day #2 of the brand new Teen Scene images at Simply Betty Stamps!

Today we're showing off Louie and Lola.  This one was my daughter's fave of the new line, so I decided to make her a bookmark.  She's been after me to make her one for a few weeks, so what better time, eh?  I'm not much at making bookmarks since you can't really add much girth to them, but she loved it.  :O)

I hope you'll be back again tomorrow...more cuteness to come!  :O)

Anita Be Stampin Blog Hop

***Please scroll down for my Simply Betty Challenges post!  Thanks!***

It’s time for another Anita Be Stampin Digi Release and Blog Hop day…woot woot!  All of the new digi images are available NOW at Anita Be Stampin, and we are celebrating by having a blog hop filled with inspiration.  Be sure to visit all of the stops on the blog hop today, because one lucky winner who comments on EVERY blog along the way will win the entire digi release.  You know you love that!

Here is my first card using the brand new Tad digi image…I made this one up for my dear son who will be graduating the 8th grade this year!  I used an EK Success border punch along with some Divine Twine in Lemon (found HERE in the ABS Shoppe!)  I used the cute little bus charm from my stash and the sentiment is from PTI.

 My next card is using Valerie.  I had lots of fun with this one...volleyball is my fave!  I didn't have any paper to use for it, so I made my own in Photoshop.  You like?  :O)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  The next stop on the hop is my fab buddy, Linda.  She will have some projects to knock your socks off!
Remember to leave a comment on every blog on the hop by Sunday, May 8th at 12:01 am CST for your chance to win all of the ABS digi images released today.  Here is the list of all of the stops on the hop today, just in case you get lost along the way:

Happy hopping!

Good morning and happy Friday to you all, bleeps!  It's time for another round of challenges at Simply Betty Challenges!  This time it's all about Mom!  Use any SBS image and make your projects all about Mom to win.  The winner will receive any 2 Sweet Gothic Kids digis...woohoo!

I used Tilly from the Sweet Gothic Kids Easter line.  I colored and "pieced" her in Photoshop.  The layout photo is of my Mom, Daughter and myself having a girls day.  We went out for mani/pedis and to lunch.  :O)
