Season's Greetings

Hellooooooooo!  I'm so sorry I'm late with my post.  It has been a hectic and busy the last couple of days, and I never check to make sure I had set my post to auto post at the correct time.  :O(

This is unfortunately my last post for StampFairy as a Guest Designer.  I wanted to say thank you to Gerda and Jackie for making me feel so welcome!  Today starts a very fun challenge over StampFairy Challenge.  Christmas in July with a twist of making an easel card.  This is my third easel card ever and I am loving it!  I really should make more of these, right?  I used the adorable Jake Poinsettias image and fussy cut him for my card.  I used some distress ink to color the doily and I also colored the roses with my Copics to match the DP.  What do you think of my easel card?

Be sure to check out the SFC blog for all the deets on the challenge!  Are you our next winner???

Simply Betty Stamps Preview - Alex

Good morning, party people!  I'm back with another preview for Simply Betty Stamps.  This week we are sneak peeking the new Sweet Gothic Kids Christmas line and today is Alex's turn.  He is all ready to wrap up his gifties...the beautiful thing about this stamp is that you can totally use this image for birthdays too!  :O)

I used some yummy Basic Grey paper for my card...I just love this line!  He's been colored up with my Copics and I used a bit of distress ink on the edges as well. 

Be sure to check out the SBS blog to see more samples using Alex and tune in to the same place all week!  :O)  Thanks so much for popping in to say hello!

Day Late and a Dollar Short...

Hello, people!  Happy Saturday to you!  I am hoping that yours is more exciting than mine is!  ;O)  I came by to add a card I made the other day using the current challenge over Tiddly Inks Challenge - Reel Me In.  The day late and dollar short bit comes in the way of always using a sketch a day late.  I used Deconstructed Sketches #9 and they are now on #10.  Oh, well!  Jen's sketches are always wonderful anyway!  :O)

I used the Alice - Time for Tea image for my card along with some MME paper...I love, love, love this paper pad!  She has been colored with Copics and I sponged the background for her.

Oh, before I forget...I have a couple of cards that are being published tomorrow at Scrapbook News and Review's online magazine!  How flipping cool is that!  If you are subscribed, I sure hope you'll pop by take a peek!  :O)

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your weekend with me!

Good morning to all!  TGIF!  I feel like it's been a super long week!  Phew!  I'm here with a new challenge for Simply Betty Challenges this A.M.  Our challenge, should you choose to accept it, use any SBS image along with any sketch challenge!  Easy!  Super dee-dooper easy even!  I used the monthly sketch over at Graphicat Sketch's owned by our very sweet and talented DT sistah, Cheri!  Woot, woot!

I used the Max & Miller rubber stamp from the Everyday Teen Scene line.  I stamped it on kraft card stock and colored it up with my Prismacolor pencils.  I do just love the way it looks on kraft!  :O)

Come on by the SBC blog and play along with us!  We don't bite...hard.  >_<

Hi all my crafty friends!  Popping on SUPER fast to post this card I made for the current challenge over at Some Odd Girl...bright and blinding colors...before it closes.  I'm not sure if these are blinding, but they're defo bright!  I made the tag a little Tim Holtz-ish...or I tried anyway!  I hope you like it!

Good morning all!  I hope your Monday has started out fantastical and continues through the week.  :O)

I'm popping in with my 2nd Guest DT post for Stamp Fairy at StampFairy Challenge.  Today's challenge is all something NEW.  Today I used a new card technique called the side step fold.  It was easy peasy and adds an extra little something to your card.  My daughter loved it and asked that I make one for her birthday.  :O)  I used 2 different stamps from the Lenny Cupcakes collection.  Each one had another bear with it, but I chose to cut them out for this particular card.  I hope you like it!

Be sure to check out the SF challenge blog and join us...we can't wait to see what you'll come up with!

Good morning all and HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!  I hope you are getting some time with your family and friends and staying safe!

I have some exciting news...I was asked to be July's Guest Designer over at Stamp Fairy!  How fun is that?  They have THE cutest bears and other digi stamps around.  Lenny seems to be my fave and I have used him today for my first post.

Today's challenge is a sketch...I just love me a sketch and this one was so easy to use!  Lenny Father's Day was one image I knew I had to use.  I made this card for my Dad this past Father's Day.  I added some lashes and bow to the wee one to make it look like a girl and she turned out SO cute!  Whatcha think?

Be sure to head over to the Stamp Fairy Challenge blog and join us for the sketch challenge!  We can't wait to see you there!  :O)

You're Doggone Great

Oh, my word!  Guess what I saw on Friday night?  Crissy Armstrong is having a DT call over at Sundays with Crissy!  WOOT!  How you can NOT love her images?  She has fun images in both rubber and digi.  I first fell in love with her for her AMAZING coloring...she is beyond fantastical!  Then I fell in love with her for the images...I mean, seriously...dogs, elephants, unicorns, dragons?  Yippee skippee!

Today's card features In the Doghouse.  He is SO cute that I can't see him being in there for being a bad dog.  I am always awestruck when I see how Crissy colors fur, so I tried my hand at it.  I am pretty happy with it for my first time.  I used my trusty Copics to color him up and paired it with some yummy MME papers.  I stamped the little sentiment on the bone from a PTI set...perfect!

Thanks so much for stopping by, peeps!  Wish me luck!

Birthday Wishes

Happy Sunday to you all!  I'm popping in from my holiday festivities to show off a card I made using Brittany, a new release from Simply Betty Stamps, and the current sketch over at CPS-Card Sketches.  SBS is sponsoring, so hop on over and join in for your chance to win!!!

The sentiment stamp I used is from PTI...

Have a fabulous day and safe 4th!
