Ahoy There!

It's time to share the latest sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Now I'm not gonna lie, I didn't know what I was going to do with this one!! But then my Stampin' Up order arrived and I realized I now had the perfect stamp set!

I used the fun Seaside Shores stamp set and paper from Stampin' Up along with the Whimsical Waves background stamp by My Favorite Things. Love the color combo, perfectly beachy. Now I'm ready for a little rest and relaxation that only the beach can provide!! Please join our fun challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Baby Shower Cards

This week at The Outlawz the CAS team is challenging you to share a "shower" card. I was inspired by the baby shower I was at just a week ago! And of course I had to make a boy and girl version of the same card!! The die set is the Baby Shower Dies by Paper Smooches. The cute little chickie is sparkled up using a wink of stella pen.  

And here is the girl version. Both make use of some scraps...gotta love that! The diaper pin on this one is also glittered up with the wink of stella pen. So fun and quick & easy to make. Now join us this week at The Outlawz for some April showers!!

Hello -- well now I have that Adele song stuck in my head!!! It's time to share an "Oldie Bug Goodie" Bugaboo image today and I went with the adorable Sew Sunbonnet - Thimble.

She is quite the seamstress, and I know a lot of people are missing her and all her alteration skills.

New Release From Bugaboo

Today is new release day at Bugaboo!! Have you checked out the new store yet? You really should, it's fantastic!! Here is Dino Birthday, perfect for a fun card to celebrate. As soon as I saw him, I knew I had to make him purple. Does anyone else remember Barney the purple dinosaur? My oldest absolutely LOVED him!! Sorry to say but boy was he annoying!! I stamped the sentiment from a Paper Trey Ink stamp set called Keep it Simple: Birthday Mini. Bright colored scraps helped me finish up this project. Be sure and take a look what other DT members created using this image over at Catch the Bug, talk about talent!!

You're Special

April is autism awareness month and Kristy from Imagine That Digistamp has released a new digi set called Autism Awareness Kids. It's such a sweet set. My youngest son is autistic so of course I had to use the boy image on my card!!! The paper also comes in this set. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches - Sentiment Sampler. Everyone would keep telling me I have a special needs child (don't you think I know that!!!!). I finally spoke up and said no, he doesn't have special needs, he's just special!!! No comebacks after that!! You can get your own set of Autism Awareness Kids from Imagine That Digistamp HERE...included is a badge to display on your blog with pride!!

Hello Friend

 I did a little stamping "just for fun" over the weekend. I ended up making 4 of the same cards, just different colors. I stamped the background (an old Stampin' Up background stamp) then die cut it out using the Postage Stamp infinity dies by Hero Arts. The sentiment comes from the Bloomin' Cute stamp set by Paper Trey Ink. Super simple and perfect for making multiples.

Here's the pink one. I also made one in yellow and one in peach but they were dropped off into the mailbox before I realized I didn't get a picture taken!!! Oh well!!

Have a Great Day

Today's Clean & Simple challenge at The Outlawz is to use a map on your card. I found an old Basic Grey paper pack with a map of sorts in it so I went with it. The bike and sentiment come from an old Hero Arts set called Joy Ride. As you guessed it, this card was a snapped to put together...once I came up with the design!!!! Hope you can join us at The Outlawz for our CAS challenge.
