Sea You Around

What a day!!! This morning was a little crazy and a whole lot stressful...but it's over with and now I can breathe. I wanted to share a card that makes me happy - yes, I know, it uses purple!!!! The image is from the new release at Doodle Pantry called Carousel Seahorse. I absolutely love the color combination, and I love the chevron digital paper also included in this set. I wanted to make use of some new dies I just got from Technique Tuesday called Flair Maker. Love the banners with the cutouts...I decided to inlay the hearts back in, just in a different color.

Challenges I'd like to submit my card to include:
Melonheadz Friends - Things with wings or tails
The Crazy Challenge - Die cuts and punches
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes / add a sentiment twist 
Fairy Tale Challenge - Use a digital stamp

Happy Birthday to You

Having fun with my dies and stamps. And here to share the latest CAS challenge over at The Outlawz. Our theme this week is "Diamonds and Pearls." Actually any shiny sparkly bling will do. I used some sequins, a rhinestone, and a metal dot. My stamps and dies all came from Simon Says Stamp - Hello You, Wide Stripes Background, and Big You Die. Clean and simple and oh so fun to make.

A Merry Little Christmas

Another snowman card...told you I am a huge fan!!! This card is for the progressive challenge over at From the Heart. The stamp set is called Winter Friends and can be purchased HERE. I let the colors of a new holiday paper pack I just got be my guide so gray and green it is. I had to pop in a touch of red with the bird...I love seeing bright red cardinals against the white snow. Quick and easy, just my style.

Merry Christmas!

Eeeek, there's only 152 days left till Christmas!!!!! And now I've got one more card to add to my collection! The moment I saw this set from Imagine That, I knew I had to have it!! After all, I am a HUGE fan of snowmen. This set is called Snow Mice and can be found HERE. I used the color version (but of course!!) and once again, kept it clean simple. Fridays are the weekly inspiration day of the Imagine That design team and guests, so be sure and check out their projects HERE. Have a wonderful weekend.

Summer Fun!

I FINALLY got this simple card done today...too many interruptions!! It's to remind you of our latest challenge over at the Fresh Brewed Blog, By the Sea/Summer. We were at the beach this summer for vacation, so that summer fun is still fresh in my mind (and I sure wish I was still there!!). I used from Fresh Brewed Designs the digital image Beach Ball. I printed it off 3 times, even flipping one of them horizontally so it was facing the opposite direction. And this fun embossed and shiny paper was a stash find, perfect for the summer/sea theme. Sure hope you can join our challenge at the Fresh Brewed Blog, you have till Aug. 5th to play along.

Deck the Halls

We have a fun challenge for you for the next two weeks at Holly Jolly Christmas...Deck the Halls. When I saw this fun image from our sponsor QKR Stampede, I knew it wasn't halls I'd be decking...it would be a cactus!!! The image is called Christmas Cactus and can be found HERE. I added a bit of sparkle with the Wink of Stella pen on the lights, ornaments, and star, just wish you could see it. Sure hope you can join us at Holly Jolly Christmas for our Deck the Halls challenge.
