Well ahoy matey!! Isn't this darlin' simply adorable?!!! She is part of the digiset of the month at Imagine That. The set is called My Sailmate. The paper is from a set with an underwater theme that can be found HERE. There's also a Nautical themed paper pack that I just must have to buy as well. Love the colors and designs on that one!!! I'm so glad I got this one done in time, I can hardly wait to see what cutie will be coming my way next month!! Check out all the inspiration using this set on the Imagine That blog.


Just a Wee Little Note

Here I go again, waiting till the last minute to get my progressive challenge cards done! You wouldn't think I had all month to do them in! Guess I work better under pressure. Say hello to Hamlet Pig Wit Being Shy, the stamp of the month at From the Heart. He is such a cutie pig!!! Now, as always, I can't wait to see what May's stamp of the month will be!!!

Welcome to the latest Clean & Simple challenge at The Outlawz. Our theme this week is a card or project with lips as the focal point. Why you ask? Who knew, but today is Remember Your First Kiss Day. My really big lips are the color version digi from a Doodle Pantry set called Kissy Lips. I cut them out and popped them up on the die cut circle and frame. Quick and easy, especially with a pre-colored digi!! Join us for some lip service over at The Outlawz.

Here We Go

Oh my goodness, I had so much fun making this card!!!!! It's for the Virtual Retreat over at Stamp Nation. The challenge was "travel" and I immediately thought about this stamp set and coordinating die, Here We Go, from Reverse Confetti. Is this little car not adorable?!!! Seems like I really gave my Big Shot a workout also cutting out the stitched rectangles from Lawn Fawn. So much fun!!! I think I'm getting my mojo back...finally!!

Challenges I'd like to submit my card to include:
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - Die Cuts
QKR Stampede - Guy cards
Simon Says Stamp - Clean and Simple
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything goes

Happy Birthday Cutie Bug

Just a quick reminder post for the SO CUTE challenge going on this week at the Fresh Brewed Blog. I had this image from Fresh Brewed Designs already printed so I put it to use. Say hello to Cutie Bug Ice Cream Cone. I used several rectangle stitched dies for this layout and a bit of scrap pattern paper. That's why this cutie is colored aqua, to go with the paper!!!!! Usually I color an image first then try to find paper that will work with it! For once I was thinking ahead!! Hope you can join us at the Fresh Brewed Blog for some SO CUTE fun.

Coffee Solves Everything

Former SSW design teamie and sweet, sweet lady Jeannie of Dragonfly Journeys, is holding a weekly challenge on her blog. I missed last week's dragonfly challenge but knew I had to play along with the current coffee challenge. I printed up from Doodle Pantry, Coffee & Biscotti. But of course I used the color version along with the digital paper included in the set!! Fun and simple, my kind of card!!!
