SHHH! Shes Sleeping!

This is a card I made for neice who just had another baby girl last month. Kati and I made a really cute fleece blanket for her also.
The image, sentiment, ribbon and white flowers all came in one of the card swap kits I recieved. I didnt use the papers because they were all baby boy colors. Very nice papers tho.
I colored her with copic markers. She was also made with the following challenges:
Little Red Wagon - Butterflies
Magnolia Down Under - sketch but I am a day late (again!)
Magnolicious - Easter colors
7 kids college fund - pink and flowers
Thanks for looking and

Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge!

Heres my card for this weeks challenge over at Fussy and Fancy Fridays blog challenge. This week we were offered images fromRobins Fetish Digital Stamps. I liked this bird. So I added a sentiment and also make some musical notes because he looks like he is singing.
We were supposed to add a zipper or feathers. I didnt add any real feathers, just the ones on his little tail.
So if you have extra time check out the rest of the design teams cards and also if you want some fun digital images, check out Robyns Fetish Digital Image site.
The ds paper for this card came from the wonderful paper pack I purchased a few weeks ago at Michaels. I just love the papers. I cant believe I used Blue 1st but there was a design just like this one in Pinks. It is BEAUTIFUL. The pack is from DCWV and called The Blossom Song Pack. I just LOOOVE it!

Peddlers Pack 2nd Runner Up!

This was my second runner up for the card kits at Peddlers Pack they asked me to do. Joyce asked me to design a card and make 35+ kits. This was the 2nd option. My hubby liked it because he always wants yellow on the card. This one definately has yellow.

The Sweet Stop Sketch!

Here is another Peddlers Pack card I made. This one is for kits I am making at Peddlers Pack. I was asked to design and make 35 kits for their make n take in a few weeks. I came up with two different cards all using the same supplies and this is the one that was picked. So I will be making about 40 of these. I have been super uber busy with kits and samples for Peddlers Pack and loving it.
For this card, I again used the April Showers papers from Three Bugs in a Rug (sorry, I have been calling it Lttle Yellow Bicycle all this time and its not). I used a Martha Stewart Punch and the stamps are all Peddlers Pack of course.
I used the sketch from Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge. They have some great sketches and challenges so if you get time go check them out.
Happy Stamping!

I got most all of these supplies from Peddlers Pack. If they are not in stock, they would be happy to order them for you. I combined them with su cardstock.

Twisted Easel Card!

Here is my twisted easel card. You might have to click on the card to get a closer look. Its pretty big so hard to get a bigger picture.
I made it for a couple of challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - sketch
         and also
Color and Create Challenge - greens - olive green, cream, brown and black
I didnt want to add any black paper so my black is the black ink. I made all the flowers on this card. So this card took me a whole day to create. The ds paper is from Me and My Big Ideas, the cs is cream, chocolate chip from SU and some light greenish bazill. Also su Old Olive. My stamps are from Peddlers Pack, both the sentiment and the bunny. I added some brown ribbon and dew drops. Colored the bunny with copic markers and added some glitter.
Happy Stamping!

Congratulations on Your Swell News!

I made this card for a co worker. His wife found out she was pregnant a few weeks ago. I didnt want to make it too girly since it would start with him and then go to his wife. So I used papers from Nanas Baby Boy Paper pack from DCVW. I also used a retired Stampin Up set. I have had this for years. I think this is maybe the 2nd time I have used it.
For this card a used the sketch from Saturdays sketch challenge.
Happy Stamping!

Recipe Card Swap!

I joined a recipe card swap at the Magnolia Yahoo Group. You make 7 recipe cards with Magnolias and get 6 back. So I made 8 and kept one for myself. I found this recipe online. Its for Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cupcakes. It sounds yummy. I cant wait to try it. So I used this Tilda with a cupcake. I had some great cupcake recipe from Little Yellow Bicycle or something like that and then the pink paper with the words. Not sure where that is from. I wanted the paper to show on the bottom as much as possible so i put my recipe at a diagonal. It still was a tight squeeze so I cut the ingredients apart and added it separately. The little cupcake at the bottom is something like a Jolee goodie and the Title is from the new 4 frame set from stampin up that matches the stampin up punch. It will be a sneak preview next month for the new catty.
Thanks for looking!
and Happy Stamping!

Challenges and New Keke Picture!

Edited: I totally forgot until after I posted this card that I used a sketch challenge to design the card.
You can find it here. It is the CLP Challenge Blog!

Isnt this the yummiest cupcake picture you have ever seen? I just want to reach in and eat them up!!
So this is from Cupcake Inspiration. You get inspiration from the picture. The most inspiration I got was to add pounds on by eating all those yummy cupcakes.
Here is my take on this yummy picture:
I also made this card for a few other challenges:
Totally Tilda - Chipboard
The little hearts at the bottom right are chipboard. I colored them with pink and white smooches and made polka dots on each one with the opposite color of smooch.
The pink polka dots all over the card are for the:
Cupcake Craft Challenge but as usual I am a day late. I am always a day late for one of the challenges it seems like.
Then there is the spellbinders dies for:
Magnolia Stamp Lovers
Magnolia Down Under is two of anything. So I have two chipboard hearts and two little light pink roses.
For my last challenge it was just spring or Easter. I think this card looks pretty springy. This was for the
challenge over at Stamp and Create. Remember if you want any stamps or great embellishments and great service, you have to check them out.
And for my last picture: Keke was hanging out with me while I was stamping. You can see a little bit of my great new stamp tables in the background. They are an anniversary present from my hubby. Tomorrow is our 25th anniversary. I cant believe we are old enough for that!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, I guess you cant see much of the table after all. But if its ever clean I will take pictures.
Happy Stamping!

Tilda W/Lacy Jeans

Too Cute!
This is one of my new Tildas. I think she is so cute. I colored her with copic markers and a few glitter pens. The papers are from Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime Collection. I just love them. If you are a Beatrix Potter fan there is a design with a bunny that looks just like him.
I added some flowers and a ribbon. The border at the bottom of the middle piece is Dark Chocolate from Papertrey Ink.
I made this cute little Maggie for 4 different challenges.
Just Magnolia - Sketch
Little Red Wagon - Green
Magnolia-licious Blog Challenge - Green
Cupcake Inspiration Challenge - Picture
Crafty Catz Weekly - Yellow and Green
Creative Inspirations - Color challenge
But for the cupcake Inspiration challenge I was a day late. But if you go to last weeks picture you can see what I was going for. They have a diffent picture of cupcakes every week and you are supposed to be inspired by it to help you with your card. You should check out their picture this week. OMG, YUM! I want to eat them all!
For Crafty Catz weekly, I have just a little bit of yellow in the center of my flowers and my yellow roses.
Happy Stamping!

Fussy And Fancy Card!

Here is todays card for the design team at Fussy and Fancy Friday's challenge this week. You can hop on over and check out what great cards the other girls on the team did also.
I used one of my new Tilda's and Mindys great sketch. These papers I picked up at Peddlers Pack the other day. I think they are really pretty. I used a martha stewart punch. I found some other cool papers there too. She hadnt even opened their package yet. I cant wait to use them. They are in blues and  greens too so this pretty ribbon I used on this card matches both papers.
This card is also for the challenge over at Magnolia Stamper Lovers. Their challenge this week is buttons and bling so I added these cute little buttons and rhinestones I also picked up last weekend. If you need great stamps, ribbons or papers and live in my are you have to check out Peddler Pack. I find all kinds of great stuff there.
I just found my papers for this card, they are Basic Greys Romani collection: Pachouli, and also the yellow is from Heidi Grace. I thought these were from the same collection but they arent even the same company and they go great together.
Well, happy stamping!

Froggy Valentine!

I forgot to show this card a few weeks ago. I made it for my hubbys valentine card. I used the froggie because anyone that follows my blog or knows us knows that using frogs has kind of become a joke for us with our frog problems here.
This little guy was a punch out and then I stamped the Peddlers Pack sentiment and tried to cut it out like a lily pad. I layered it a few time and added some hearts I punched out of red velvet.
Happy Stamping!

Another Peddlers Pack Easter Card!

This was a fun card I made with a couple more Peddlers Pack stamps. I think it turned out cute and fun.
I stamped the bunny and colored it with copic markers. The cut it out by hand and did the orange background with a nesties die. The sentiment is Peddlers Pack also.
I added some buttons, ribbon and glitter. The butterfly paper is some more fun paper in the same line as the last two cards and the lower paper is from one of my DCWV stack books.
Happy Stamping!

Peddlers Pack Floppy Hat Bunny!

Here is another Peddlers Pack card. I have this cute little bunny in this size and a larger size. I got all this great paper and ribbon at Peddlers Pack also.
The Sentiment and frame behind the bunny are Justrite Stamps. This is one of the new sets that fits the spellbinders. This particular set fits an old spellbinders and a new one they have on preorder.
I added some flowers dew drops. These papers are the same line as my previous Peddlers Pack card.

Peddlers Pack Hat Trio

I cant believe its been a whole week since I last posted anything. Time sure does fly by.
I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday for the layout of this card. Also my new papers from Three Bugs in A Rug's Pretty Bird. I love these papers. They are so pretty!
I stamped the hats with Tim Holtz soot black ink and colored with copics and then added some glitter.
The sentiment is a Lockhart stamp, I punched it out with a stampin up punch and I inked around the edges with summer sun. I layered the pretty bird paper I think with Blushing Bride cardstock with a white base. Used a martha stewart punch on the sides and my nesties for the hat trio.The Yellow polka dot paper is Banana Creme (I just love that name). I have had it forever. It is from the dry embossing company that the name of just slipped my mind.  I also added some yellow ribbon and flowers.
This is one of the kits I am selling at Peddlers Pack. My kits have been going good there, so I am happy about that.
Happy Stamping!
