Cocoa and Birthday

Hello.  How is everyone doing today?  I didn't get in my craft room as early as I wanted but I am here now. 

I wasn't going to do the challenge at Curtain Call, but then I saw someone using Cocoa from Sweet N Sassy.  I just had to make a card using him.  He is just so cute.  I decided to use pink as my main color because I have so much pink paper.  Pink and Blue, you will be seeing a lot of those colors over the next few months.

The next problem was coming up with a sentiment.  It then dawned on me that I had several Stampin' Up sets with cupcakes so I started looking and I found the 'Have a sweet celebration!'.  Then the card was easy

Also my sister went to a stamp convention a couple of weeks ago and she picked both of us up a Bow-Easy, so I used it to make my bow.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Curtain Call - Donuts
   Connie Can Crop - Sweets for the Sweet
   613 Ave Create - Birthday
   Creative Card Crew - Birthday w/ Sentiment
   Pile It On - Sketch
   In The Pink - Cute

I will be back later maybe.

St Patricks Mouse - KaDoodle Bug

Hello.  Just one card for you tonight.

It is using one of KaDoodle Bugs new designs.  The mice are so cute.  This file cut so beautifully.  The files are put together so well.  All I had to do was trace the pieces and then cut them.

It is hard to tell in the picture, but I covered the clover on the bottom with glitter.

Hopefully tomorrow you will see another one from this file.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Papertake Weekly - Bingo (Die, Free, Glitter)
   Sketch Saturday - Sketch
   Sparkle & Sprinkle - Anything Goes
   Cupcake Inspiration - Cute Critters

Have a great evening.

Last One

Hello again.  This is the last one for the night.  I really wanted to get at least a few cards done today and I did do that.  Maybe tomorrow I will have more time.

I was surfing the blogs the other day and I saw that Di's Digitals had some new images.  Two cute St. Patrick's Day images.  This is one of them.  You will probably see the other one tomorrow. The clover in the top corner is too big.  I may change that on the other cards. I used the Sugar Sketch from SugarPea Designs. And as a final touch, I added a texture to the clover.

I am using it for the following challenges...
   Simon Says Wednesday - Add Texture
   Crazy Hazelnut's - Anything Goes
   Scribble & Scraps - Anything Goes
   Crafty Calendar - Anything Goes
   Sugar Pea - Sketch #20

Have a great night.

Winter Time

Hello.  It is still cold and snowy here.  We are in a wind chill warning.  Cold cold cold.

When I cleaned off my table today, I found some images that I had printed and not used.  I fell in love with the snowmen from Doodle Pantry.  Just so cute.

I thought while my dinner was cooking, I would throw a card together for Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Their sketch was really easy to work with.  I added shimmer to the snow.

I am going to use this card in the following challenges:
   Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch
   Crafty Sentiments - Bling It On
   Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Anything Goes + Die
   ABC Challenges - D is for Die Cuts
Have a great evening and stay warm.

Play Time

Hello.  I finally got my craft table cleaned off and sat down and made a card.  I went with a St. Patrick's Day card.  I don't make a lot of St. Patty's  cards but I will make a few.

This is from Silhouette Online.  Just cut the pieces and put it all together.

I am going to use it in the following challenges:

I will chat with all of you later.

Cut It Up

Good morning and happy Friday morning.  I hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend.

It's time for another Cut It Up challenge.  This week's challenge should be lots of fun.  The theme is Exotic Pets.  No cats or dogs.  Make it fun.  Let's see what you can come up with.  I look forward to see lots of cuddly bears, or what about bunnies.Then there is birds.  I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

The challenge is sponsored by Meljen's Designs so I decided to use one of her cute critters.  I picked these fun loving cubs.  They look like they are having so much fun.  They're little cubs so they could be pets, right?

You will have almost two weeks to make a project.  So let's have lots of entries.

Have a great day everyone.

Last one tonight

Ok, this is the last one for tonight.  I really wanted to do the Die Cuttin' Divas' challenge, but I just don't have the time.  Next time for sure.

This is the third card for my husband.  There will be a bag of cinnamon red hots to go with it.  I have one more Valentine's Day card to make for him and then I will have them all made.  I am going to do it tomorrow.  Now I just need to get some snacks together for him.  This is the first time in a while that I have been this organized.

This image for this card is from Doodle Pantry.  I just love their digitals.   I print one more out while I did this one.  It is a winter one.  Hopefully, you will see it tomorrow afternoon.

I am using this card in the following challenges:
   Sugar Pea - Sketch #19
   A Gem of a Challenge - Lots of Layers
   Scribble & Scrap - Anything Goes
   Curtain Call - Kissing Booth

Have a great night.

Valentine's Day #2

Hello again.  This is the first time in a while that I have had all evening to play around.  It has been heavenly.  I plan on getting at least one more card made.

This one isn't going in my husband's stash.  He doesn't like the little conversation hearts so I will send it out to someone else.  The digital stamp is by From The Heart.  I just love the little birdbrains.  I am close to having all of them.  Just too cute.

I used the From The Heart sketch for this card.  It makes a quick and easy card but really cute.  The background paper is digital paper by Happy Heart Studio

I am using the card for the following challenges:
   From The Heart - Sketch #96
   Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
   Crafty Gal - Pink
   Fab N Funky - Hearts & Flowers
   Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
   Brown Sugar Challenges - Anything Goes
   Dream Valley - Valentines
   Di's Digitals - Include a Heart

Have a great evening.


Hello.  How is everyone this Sunday evening?  I am working on Valentine's Day cards still.  This is the second one going out of town with my husband.

I just love this image from Bugaboo.  The little boy and girl are just so cute.  I used paper piecing on the love.  I don't do this often but I like how it looks.  The white cardstock in the background is embossed with hearts.  Then I added a ribbon with hearts.

I am using this in the following challenges:
   Crafty Sentiments - Include A Heart
   Simon Says Monday - H is for....(Hearts)
   Sweet 7 Challenges - Anything Goes
   Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes
   Wednesday's Inspiration - Love Is In The Air
   Cute Card Thursday - Crazy In Love

Off to work on something else.  Have a good one.

Valentine's Day card plus

Hello and good evening.  I tried to get in my craft room earlier, but I just didn't make it.  And I am probably going to bed after I post this card.  I am hoping to have a lot of time tomorrow.

My husband is going out of town next week and will be gone on Valentine's Day.  It isn't a big deal.  The only thing we usually do is have a nice dinner, either out at a restaurant or here at home.  I thought I would make him a card for every day that he is gone.  If I am going to do that.  I have to make them tomorrow.  So wish me luck.

This is the first one.  I saw a similar card last year and I wanted to make my version of it. I put a white ribbon on it originally, but I didn't like it so I went back to my ribbon and decided on this one.

I also cut a pattern for the inside of the card.  (Remember I am trying to finish the inside when I make them.)  I had to enlarge this pattern to make it fit.  After cutting out the insert, I took one of my pink Copic Markers and colored in the words.

I am going to use this card in the following challenges:
   Glitter N Sparkle - Anything Goes
   Inky Paws - Hearts
   613 Ave Create - Anything Goes
   Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes
   Creative Cutting - Valentines
   Eureka - Pink & Red
   Through The Purple Haze - Anything Goes
   Clear It Out - Anything Goes
   Cupcake Inspiration - Color Inspired #296

Have a nice evening.

Cut It Up

Hello.  I forgot to post my new Cut It Up card.  I am so sorry this is late.

The challenge, this time, was hard for me.  I don't know why but it was.  Maybe because I am not ready for flowers.  I am still enjoying the snow.  Not the cold temperatures but the snow.

The challenge this time is Romance.  It must have flowers, lace and pearls on it.  I hope every one has more luck than me. 

The sponsors are Fleurette Bloom and Cute As A Button.

Fleurette Bloom has some great cutting files.  She will be giving the winner a $10 gift certificate.  The flower is from her.  It was suppose to be a tiger lily but I made it pink in honor of Valentine's Day.

Cute As A Button will be giving away a $20 gift certificate.

I hope to see everyone over at the challenge.
