A Gift Box

I so love Tickled Pink Stamps and I loved this challenge - this is a box I cut with my Cricut on Tags, Boxes, etc.  cartridge  I wanted to make something other than a card!  This was cut using a pattern paper and a gingham and a scrap as a mat and then my image cut with my nestabilities - I went simple with a bow on top and on the side!  The cricut cut has holes for a handle like a box so I decided to tie a bow.   I colored her with m Copics of course and added a few little colored bubbles - they were the same color as the box itself and so I thought - that's it!  Fun!  Thanks as usual and I hope you enjoy! 

Anything is Possible with Just Some Lines

Well, today is my day to be at the helm for Just Some Lines Blog
I decided I would use Jehanne's garden catepillar.  I think she's too cute!  Well, she has little flowers so I'm assuming she's a girl and so I made her with pinks!  I decided to use my 
Anything is Possible image from Bugaboo - I think it's perfect because I envision this catepillar as having some issues getting around!?!?!  Tee Hee!  Now - head on over to Just Some Lines Images.  There are even some freebies to get you started.  The images are reasonably priced - so come on - go get one and have fun!  


Hot Fun!

This is a summer challenge at Phindy's - well, I purchased this little guy - He , in my eyes, is the epitomy of summer fun!  or ..... hot fun!  I decided to make a pizza box for this challenge - I get tired of just cards.  I'm thinking of doing scrap pages with my images - I've never done that!  Anyway, I cut the box in red solid and didn't use any pattern paper - wow!  I just realized that!  hmmmm...Cards for men - challenge is no dp!  Wow - didn't even plan it like that - funny!  Anyway - I colored this little guy with my copics, did some inking and that's it!  I do hope you like him - I do!  Now, who will this box go to and what shall i stuff it with???

Oh - the tutorial for the pizza box - Pizza box tutorial.  I always like to add those in - just on the off chance someone hasn't made one!  Have fun!!

He who has hope...

Well, I printed this guy a little while ago and kept forgetting about him - my friend on one of my design teams gave him to me....Well, I saw the challenge this week - I started following Sew Many Challenges.
This week's challenge is CIRCLES.  Well, I bought the nestabilities with the little scallops and thought - I have to use this!!!  So....I threw in some bits of this and that!  A little Cuttlebug and actually my heart is from my Imagine!  Man I gotta get that out again!  You can find my little mouse at Digital Sew Many Cards.  There are some really fun images!  Thanks Tanya for getting me hooked!  Anyway - have fun and get those circles out and join in!


My first Lori Designs!

This is my first Lori Boyd digis and design challenge.  I like her images and found her through Sparkle Smith.  I really like Sparkles stamps and she always does Lori Boyd challenges - so I thought I'd give it a try!  I bout this little girl with her dolly!  I put the little dolly on top of the ribbon and border I cut with my EK Success punch.  The mats are scraps and I cut the sentiment and the corner with my Stampin Up label punch.  My little girl is colored with Copics and Sakura pens and her necklace is silver pearls glued on.  I so think she came out great- I hope you enjoy stopping by!


Lori Designs Challenge

Baby, Baby


One of my favorite songs by Amy Grant - Baby, Baby is my inspiration.  It's more for a partner but I like to think of these words for my children also.  She's got some great Christian music - I hope you enjoy my post - This is a Stroller from "Stamping" Cartridge and the sun is from Doodlecharms (talk about an oldie!)  The challenge at Lollipop Crafts this week is to use a song as an inspiration so....as any artist knows inspiration can take on so many facets!  I love this little Bugaboo image.  They are our sponsor this week - They are currently on sale - so .... if you're feeling froggy - go get one!  They also always have a freebie - gotta check 'em out - here's a little about them.  Bugaboo stamps found here at Bugaboo Stamps.com  They have some great images - so many it's hard to chose and every Friday they have a great freebie - not just a so-so one but a great one!  I love 'em.  She 's got some hilarious ones also.  So, go check 'em out and remember - you could win 7 of 'em if you just give it a try!  You have until Saturday evening to get your post in!  Don't wait - you don't wanna miss out!  Now go get the Friday freebie and try this week!

Today & Always

I'm always up for a challenge- I seem to shy away from "black & White" + another color!  I love black, white and red, but everyone does that so....I always try to do a different color.  Last time I did Orange.  This time - green.  I enjoyed doing it - not sure what everyone will think - I do hope you like it - I love the freebie this week!  Head on over to A Day for Daisies and grab this freebie - A Day for Daisies Stamps then head over to their challenge at A Day For Daisies:Challenge.  They also have some great projects from the design team!  That design team is amazing!  Anyway - I had fun making this card.  I went pretty simple and am happy with the outcome!  My sentiment is from Stamping Ups "Heard from the Heart"! We have a monthly stamp club so if you need a demonstrator- I got your girl!  Now give it a go!


I don't do Mornings!

Anyone who knows me - knows - I don't do mornings!  I'm such a night owl -typical night last night 2am.  I got to sleep in today - decided it was going to be my - "I ain't getting up for nothing mornings"!  So, I got up at 10am - even staying up late - I don't normally do that - Friday I went to bed at 2 am and got up at 8am!  Anyway- on to the card - I so love this image because I so resemble her!  This stamp is available at All That Scraps and this is specifically for her challenge at Wednesday's Challenge.  Head on over there and check out her stuff!  You'll be hooked right away!  Her challenges are a lot of fun also - different!  This week was "use felt"  At first I went, WHAT!  and then thought I can do this!  I cut some felt flowers and leaves with my nestabilities dies and the border is a felt border I won here!!!!  Yay me!  Anyway- I had fun and thank you for keeping it interesting and different!

Another Fav!!!

Ok- you can't tell me you don't just love this guy!  I thought he was perfect for the balloon challenge - so I attached these "freebie" balloons from Stamp Fairy.com.  They have some great freebies and regularly as well.  Anyway, the challenge at Stamp Fairy Challenge is "Balloons and Let's Party".  I decided to combine them - I was going to do the cricut - it just didn't seem to gel!  So....I took another road!  I thought I'd do blues and greens instead on reds and "LOVE IT"!  I also love when I can use my "cheapy" $1 bin ribbon from Michaels!  Here it is in all it's perfection - Bees!!!  So...thanks as usual for stopping by and leave a little lovin!

Fruity Tooty

Take a look at this fruity card!  I really had fun making this card - I used a rubber stamp for the cherries, digi images for the Pixie Dust image you can find it here and my wonderful Cricut for the banana!  Oh, my cuttlebug with a sizzix swirl, copics - Wow a little of everything!  Anyway, I thought it was fun to use the cook since it's all these fruits and dreaming of what you can conjur up is a great thing for a chef, eh?  I don't know too well - I cook but only out of necessity!  I do hope you enjoy looking at my card - I enjoyed this one very much!

I just love the game of Bingo - as a matter of fact, we haven't played in quite some time.  In fact, I remember - it was 3 years ago night before Easter at my Mom's house!  We were decorating eggs and I always bring something for the kids to do - Well, Pollycraft Monday Challenge is playing Bingo - I am using their little girl (I never remember the names) and I put a cap on her on a stack of books on a box!  Wow! This image has a cupcake but I cut a diploma out on my cricut and now she's got a diploma instead of a cupcake!  Funny!   I added a few embellies - 3 of which are on the bingo card - button, charm and sparkle/bling!  Pollycraft has some great images - check 'em out here They usually have some freebies - go check 'em out!   They have some really fun and different challenges!  Try 'em out!  Anyway - hope you likey!

Thanks Big Time!

It's still a big Thanks!  I had made these for "stamp" night with the girls!  I cut 12 of 'em.  They assemble and stamp them - I just cut things up and put them in bags for the girls!  This is my project for next week so...I thought - why not bang out the "peachy keen' challenge.  You just gotta love these!  This is the set I won - wide eyed children!   Aren't they ever so cute!  Everytime I get a new one - it's my new favorite!  I'm fickle that way!  I used my doodlecharms cartridge to cut this apple and Create a Critter for the worm.  I think it has a teacher flare but it's fun!  I made all those other teacher cards for my daughter to take today - last day of school and guess what - YUP!  You got it- she left them in her Dad's truck!  So...I got 5 or 6 thank you teacher cards!  Oh well!!!  That's Life!  Anyway - I so hope you like my card! and...I hope the girls like it also!



Ok - the title seems simple enough!?!?!  I already used the boogers were friends quote - so.....I thought....hmmmmm..I know - Lunch?  In other words - do you want to go to lunch?  not I'm gonna pick you lunch!  My 11 year old said - that's just gross mom!  I thought it was cute as can be....but you know how sometimes you don't wanna give out your favs - well, this just might be one of those.   I have a 22 year old and a 25 year old - may just sent this to them!
Well, I'm getting off on a tangent - Our challenge at Digi's With Attitude is to use a child's image/card.  And as you would assume- this is one of Digi's images!  You've just gotta love her - I had a couple of major booger pickers so I can so relate.  This is fun and you just gotta check out our Digi's at Digi's With Attitude.  You know you wanna make a card like this.  Also, the tag/banner is from Cuttlebug - I found this plate they make - tags are not small but they are sure fun - I've been eluding the scrapping but this size tag would be perfect!  Now, they always have a freebie on site - Go check it out - take it and try this challenge!  You know you want to??  If not - go buy this image - they are very reasonable and easy to use!  Go check out the incredible mojo of these girls - I guarantee you - you will chuck when you check out their work on this challenge!


I love my Teacher

Well, 3 of my favorite digi image companies - Bugaboo, Meljens and Tiddlyinks .  I had one last teachers card to make for my daughter - tomorrow is her last day of the year.  No more school til August!  Yay - no more homework!  I'm doing 6th grade for the 3rd time.  You would think it would be a breeze by now - but NOPE!  So...I'm glad it's done!  Anyway- I combined all 3 companies digis and just love the way it came out with all it's implicity!  I thought about adding more but said - Juel - back away from the table!

A Gentlemen's Read

Well, I decided to make a young man/gentleman's Book marker.  Ok - guys don't always have to do the barbaric thing - they don't have to bend the corner of the page!  Let's try using a book markers other than  a napkin or piece of random paper!  let's be gentlemen, eh?  Anyway - I thought this mad hatter from Tiddlyinks was so cute - I printed another image but had him sitting there and thought - e's going on this page!  I used random scraps to make the book marker!  and cut the read out on my cricut from "a child's first year".  Real simple and I like it!


Christmas in May

I thought I'd do a simple card!  I know I said I'd keep up on my Christmas cards - but that died out in February!  I just got "burnt"!  So...at first, I thought- No thanks!  Then I said - Do it!  So....I bought a new digi because that makes it more fun and then made this simple card!  I had the flourish already cut and the Christmas Stack from DCWV is small enough to keep around all seasons!  So....I made a Christmas card in May - Yay me!  You can find the image here at Phindy's Images .  And don't forget to check out her Random Surprises!

Cowgirl Up! - A Birthday Invite

This is just for necessity - My daughter and I were trying to decide about her theme for her birthday - well, I was doing something for her group project and we used the wild west cartridge and we saw Cowgirl Up!  She said that's my theme for my party!  So, Madison really likes her stuff fairly simple so we used wood paper, a hat and her saying - I had to add the bling and she let me - It just so happened that this fit the More Than Favors Color Challenge - brown, beige, teal and pink!  I'm sure I'll find other challenges for it - but as of now - it'll do because I had to made a boat load of them - It's a slumber party and she wants 13 girls!  Well, they're sleeping outside in a large tent!  I'm ok as long as none of them sleep walks - she'll end up in the pool!  LOL!

Follow Your Bliss

Well, the challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Girlz is "White on White".  I haven't done that in a while - I do love it - it's a cool look - at first I thought - no color?? What are they thinking - but it's a great look!  I so love his digis, they are too fun!  I thought I'd use this retro lady!  I can't remember her name - she's definitely one of Kenny's girlz!  Definitely go check out his images at Kenny K's Downloads and remember as many do - He offers a freebie every month for you to give it a whirl - so What are you waiting for!  Go try it out and submit a project - I'm up for the competition!  I don't win too often over there - but I love doing it!  He's so fair - he does the random,org thing - I'll get it - the odds have got to be turning the tide!  LOL!

Ok - 2-5-7-10 Box!  I know - but I love that box - I've put the hyperlink there so if you haven't gotten it from me - well, there it is!  Now, you really have to try that technique - it's simple and I love it - it makes a great little box for treats or a small gift!  I put in small bracelet, necklace, candies, it just depends and everyone loves getting them!  Who wouldn't?  It's fun knowing someone took the time to make something for you!  Anyone can buy a box - but make it!  Give it a Go!  Anyway - it was "not a card challenge at Patties Creations.  I love her images and have been a bit remiss in participating as much I'd like!  But - here's my "cowgirl up" image!  I do hope you like her as much as I do - but I'm a bit of a redneck so no surprise I like her!  Go join Pattie's Creations and have fun people!

Happy Birthday Dude!

Well, I was sitting here ready to post this card and I thought - I love these images!  They are my fav.....then it hit me - Everything is my favorite!  What's up with that?  I just started using these digis more and more - I've had a couple for a while but been buying them!  The challenge this week at Some Odd Girl was to use a scene!  Well, I always use my bugs when it's scene or something background-ish!  So, I decided to hit the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge also.  I used my Celebrate with Flourish cartridge.  The grass is the good ole Fiskars grass punch!  Can you say PUNCHAHOLIC?  Anyway - that's it -- simple -- but i'm liking it!

Bubble Bling!

Well, they said "Bling It On" over at the Lollipop Crafts Challenge and I thought - I can do bling - I printed my image quite some time ago and just never seemed to get around to coloring or using it!  So....this was perfect!  Of course, who does it remind you of - my sister and her infamous "tubbies".  This is the epitomy of my sis!  The bling and the tubby!  She likes to do everything to the "ninth" degree!  That's my sis!  I'm more of the simple - fly by the seat of my pants kinda of a gal!    
Enough ramb;ing - this challenge of the week is "Bling it On".  Now you can do that in so many ways - All ya' gotta do is try!  Our ever so generous sponsor:
has generously offered us images for the first prize and it's chosen randomly so "we all have a chance", now get out there and give it a go!
Oh, don't forget Digi's with Attitude also offers a freebie every month so if you wanna try out one of their digi's head on over there and grab one!  Don't forget they are here!
Also, don't forget you have until Saturday evening to "get 'er done"!  So, first go to Lollipop Crafts Challenge and check out the Design Teams Incredible Creations and then pop over to Digi's With Attitude and grab a digi to play with!  I'll be watching!

It's a Sassy Thank you!

Ok - I've had some Sassy Studio digis for a while and this is the first time I'm using them!  I've been wanting to but I get in such a routine!  Yikes!  Well, today I decided to try them out!  I've had them printed for a while - so what was my problem!  Well, the details on their faces are just incredible.  Now, if you know Sassy Studio images - this young lady is supposed to be on a dredel - that's how long this has been printed - shame on me!  Anyway - I've also had the chimney printed for quite some time!  I decided to cut off the dredel and use her!  I have another waiting - but i'm going to wait for the next challenge!  I just love how she came out and loved combining the different dp.  Hope you enjoy her - I am loving these digis!  


Well, what a smorgasbord!  It's Tiddlyinks music, Pollycraft image, Inkadinkado Rockstar stamps!  a little Martha Stewart punchand some DCWV paper!  I thought it came out fun!  I hope you like it!  It's funny - I'm sitting here posting this listening to my daughter (11 years old) and her soccer teammate singing their hearts out to High School Musical!  They are always poopooing it and now they are rocking out!  All I gotta say - good thing these girls are great students!  Tee Hee!

Give a Hoot!

I so love my CRICUT!  I am trying to use it at least once or twice a week for cards!  This is the silouhette from Give a Hoot cart.  I bought it from a friend and I've not used it much- it was one I wanted but now that I am actually using it - it's awesome - the leaves are from there and from my Stampin Up bird punch!  I used my Fiskars punch also!  Remember - I'm a punchaholic!!  i used a couple of rhinestones to be the "stopper" for this easel card!  I do hope you like it - It's simple and I wasn't sure of a sentiment - so....it didn't get one_ So There!  Ha! Ha! 

Hi Cupcake!

I didn't realize how difficult this 3 embellishments was gonna be!  it seems that we're always trying to add more and more - the more the embellishments the better!  Whenever I get beat out in a challenge - the winner usually has a tremendous amount of embellishments!  Well, I thought I'd go simple - these bears are just too cute and I added 3 things - a flourish, a butterfly and the corner doohickey!  I don't think the negative out of the corner doohickey is number 4 - i stuck it on the sentiment.  I used some glitter glue on the cupcake frosting and I love the cherry and get a hold of that fork!  Anyway, I used a Stamp Fairy image for their challenge.  Their images are way to cute!  I love the simplicity!  They color quickly and are very forgiving for those of us who make "boo boos"!  Anyway- hope you like these guys!

Stamp Fairy Challenge

It'll go for 2 weeks (biweekly) so you have plenty of time to get your project done - but don't wait - we all know how time flies!  You have until midnight June 3!  Don't wait!  Oh ----don't forget to make it a graduation theme!  Duh, I thought that was obvious - but then, maybe not - - so don't forget -- use your high school colors and make it a graduation theme!  Now come on - go check it out and remember there are some freebies if you'd like but have fun!!  We'd like you to use a JSL image but not necessary!

Tickled Pink Challenge

Sending Thanks to You!

Well, been a little looney to say the least this week - i thought I'd posted this card - I sent it to Lollipop but then dropped the ball!  I've had a loss in our family this week - my dear incredible aunt - we called her "Titi".  That's spanish for aunt.  She was/is an incredible woman and the good lord took her home this week!  She will be sorely missed.  We are preparing for her funeral and I've decided to take on pictures and making a little something for the girls - gotta be simple because i'm making 3!  and....I only have until tomorrow when we head down south - anyway- Life goes on and my challenge at Lollipop Crafts this week was my host - "Thank a Teacher".  I think they have a difficult job- yes, they get paid - but it is a difficult and incredibly important job!  They are forming/molding the future of our country!  Those children will be running this world one day!  We need them to be on their game!  So....Kudos to all you teachers out there!!  We do appreciate you!  We may not always show it - but THANKS!!

Oh Joy!

This sentiment is perfect!  These ladies (I'm imagining) are my sister and I just getting out of the gym and we got on the scale and we lost a few lbs!  We're jumping for JOY!  Ok - well, my imagination is running a little crazy - I don't seem to lose any weight and I don't imagine I would jump like that if I did!  But- this is a Karen's Doodles image and she have some really fun images - some of my favs are the babies upside down - as a matter of fact- I need to break that out!  They are digis - so you know what that means - instant gratification!  We all love that - that is the wave of the generation - NOW!  Anyway - The challenge over there is BOLD and BRIGHT!  So, I hope this is bold and bright enough - I personally would never wear anything this bold or bright to the gym!  I'm about as plain jane as you can get to go to the gym - It ain't no fashion show! is my attitude!

Congrats Grad!

Well, actually - it's a Stampin up saying inside - the set is Heard from the Heart!  It says May all your Wishes Come True!  I thought I'd use some thing other than - Congratulations - that's the same ole same ole!  It works but let's venture off the beaten path - and besides - I didn't wanna dig up the Congrats that I know is in the back of the cabinet!  I used the Meljens owl along with a Cricut cut from A Child's First Year - Gosh - one of my top favs of all times!  Anyway - I used a trifold card (is that what that's called).  and put a tag inside and Bing Bang Boom!  I'm done!  pretty simple - but I hope you enjoy!!

Rough Reading

Well, funny story - my sister in law reads voraciously.  She's one tough cookie..rough around the edges - well, I was gonna make her a book marker and my brother said not one of those fairies - I said how about a female boxer?  He said Perfect!  But - I know my daughter who loves to use the punching bag may want her - we'll see - I can always make another - they are so simple - the most time is fussy cutting out my Kenny K downloads.  His images are all over the map - so....there's something for everyone and every occassion!  Go check them out - they also have a freebie every month for you to test drive! The challenge over at Kenny's is to use die cuts (my flourishes) and punches - (my border on the bottom).  Hope you like my book marker - She's gonna be given away soon!  I'm gonna' be making a few more - I've had a bunch of requests and the good thing is - they're simple!

Simply happy birthday

As you already know - I just love Simply Betty Stamps - there's something kinda' ghoulish, yet naughty about them - I was actually gonna use the bat in the stamp - but forgot - it's sitting on the counter!  Oh well, this is the crickety fence from "paperdoll dress up" cartridge for my cricut!  I thought it was perfect - I was lazy and didn't wanna get out the "haunt cartridge".  I just got a sizzix flourish die - LOVE IT!!!  I haven't bot anything sizzix for quite some time - i love my Spellbinders but hadn't found the right mix like this one - 3 dies and 4 flourishes!  Perfection!  Anyway- I colored her kinda snappy - stayed with the browns/yellow and oranges on the rest.  Always kinda fun to use a pop of color!  Love the neutrals!  I hope you enjoy my card as much as I enjoyed making it!

Best Friends Forever!

Ok - I just love these little guys!  I decided to go with the Emo Amber Alek sitting together peacefully!  You can find them here at Just Some Lines.  She has great images!  You will so love 'em!  She even has some freebies to get you hooked (I mean started)!  I was wondering what to use for the sentiment - I thought - duh????  best friends forever!  Seemed perfect and it would fit there perfectly - I used some Recollections animal print paper - I used some Petaloo flowers, EKSuccess punch, Stampin up punch, Martha Stewart Punch - As you can probably tell- I'm a punchaholic!  We have a stampin up club monthly - and I've purchased almost every punch!  I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday.  I love the mute colors and come to think of it - it's monochromatic, eh??  Well, I so hope you like this card.  Now grab a freebie to start or go purchase this one and get started!  You will have so much fun with them!!  They are perfect for every challenge out there!!  Have Fun!!

I'm sorry I've been all of a sudden MIA!  I had a family emergency with just awful decisions to make!  There is a circle of life and as you get older it seems to be more evident!  I have faith and believe that "everything happens for a reason" and things are as they should be!  I am glad to have spent the time with family during this time!  I did miss my "Blogging Family" very much!  I literally felt like I was having withdrawals - I chose to not access the computer at all!  I wanted to focus on the situation--but I'm back and missed Blogland very much!

#1 Teacher

Well, I'm still on the Teacher Cards and this week - you will see more!  Anyway - this one is for my daughter to give - she has 7!  It's funny - my older daughter (pre med student) wanted the last one I made!  She's at a Christian College - very different than when she was at a state school!  So,m I decided to use my Tiddlyinks image I purchased - ON SALE! and add my little sentiments into it!  Handwritten of course- but it's all good - a little home made touch!  I used my cricut and doodlecharms cartridge - welded it on my Design Studio - still don't use the Gypsy I bought from my girlfriend!  I love the large screen!  I used copics, a little white pen doodling and she's done!  I had fun with this one!  Hope you do to!
