Birthday dinosaur


Happy Wednesday to you!! 

With "dinosaur" in the title, you may have thought this would be a boy's card, but I've got a birthday card for a little girl.  It's a princess dinosaur! :)


It's a Doodle Pantry princess dinosaur.  Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Fab 'n' Funky's challenge this week, so head over and play along.  The theme is tic tac toe.  My card was made with the middle line across... die cut, digi image, flower.

The image and "princess" are from Doodle Pantry's Kid Toys.  The "happy birthday" is a clear sentiment.   They are all cut with Spellbinders Celebra'tions Squares.  The banner is CC Designs.  All my DP is from my scrap box.  The flower is Prima.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Kitty thank you - TMS #361


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!   

I had a busy weekend!  We had the grad party for my second daughter who graduated from high school this year.  We homeschool, so we do our own grad things.  She didn't want any ceremony, so we just had a BBQ at our home.  We had almost 100 people!  It was so fun!!  I'm also enjoying family who were able to come to be here, so it's been a little crazy at my house!   But I managed to find time to make a thank you card.  (My DD is going to need a lot of them!)



Supplies...
Crate Paper "Flea Market" DP
Di's Digis "Scruffy Kitty"
Spectrum Noir markers
Spellbinders Celebra'tions Squares
CottageCutz stitched rectangles
Offray ribbon
Prima flower
OWH sentiment 

Our sponsor this week is Di's Digis!  These digis are sooooo adorable!!!  The prize is a $12 voucher!

Christmas Blessings - CCC #33


Good morning!  We've had a very hot and humid week, so while I'm enjoying summer, I am also looking forward to winter and Christmas and SNOW!!  ;)  Even though it is a little difficult to think about Christmas in the midst of this kind of weather, I persevered and have a card to show you...


This week's challenge in Christmas Card Challenges, as always, is to make a Christmas/holiday card with an optional color challenge!


I used Recollections Cozy Lodge DP.  My cardinal image is from Sweet n Sassy Stamps "Christmas Joy" and cut with the coordinating die.  I colored him with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I also used Spellbinders Standard Circles and Petite Ovals.  The stripe behind the ribbon is embossed with the Paper Studio Wood Grain EF.  The branches are a MS branch punch.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please come by and play along this week at Christmas Card Challenges!!

Happy Christmas - CCC #32


I've got a cute (IMO) card for Christmas Card Challenges to share today...


I love snow!  And I love snowmen!  This cutie is FTHS "Flurry" and the sentiment is from FTHS "Candy Cane for Snowman."  He's cut out with CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles.  My DP is Recollections Cozy Lodge.  The snowflake flourish is CC Designs Winter Wonderland die, and the snowflakes are Sweet 'n Sassy Small Snowflakes dies.  The paper for these has glitter on it and I added some shimmer to the snowflakes on the image with a sparkle gel pen. (If you click on this pic to enlarge it, you can see it a bit better. It is very pretty IRL.)



This week at Christmas Card Challenges, our word prompt is "snowman" to inspire you! (Remember that the only real rule is that you create a Christmas/holiday card.)




Challenges...
Winter Wonderland - Christmas tree and/or make it cute (I made it cute)
Dies R Us #52 - Outdoor fun (building a snowman is fun!!)
Die Cut Divas July - make it glitter (the snowflake DP has glitter)
Whoopsie Daisy July - (must use digi) Christmas in July
Cut It Up #100 - anything goes (I used CottageCutz, CC Designs, and Sweet n Sassy dies)

Purple Christmas


I've got a Christmas card... a purple Christmas card.  If you know me personally, you know that purple is NOT my favorite color!!!  In fact, I've been know to say bad things about purple. :O  If you love it, that's great.  No need to hate me.

Why am I rambling about purple?  Doodle Pantry is sponsoring CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge today and the theme is "purple."  So here's my purple Christmas card...



I know my DP doesn't scream "Christmas," but since I hate don't really care for purple, I don't have much of it in my stash.  My image is Doodle Pantry's Mini Bethlehem.  I used Spellbinders Petite Ovals and Labels 18 to cut the image and frames.  The sketch of this card is one I use often!  It's quick and easy but still looks classy.  (Even using purple! LOL)


Challenges...
Christmas Cards All Year 'Round July - anything goes
ABC Christmas Challenge - N is for No Rules (anything goes)


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Floral thank you


I wanted a masculine thank you.  I tend to struggle with masculine cards.  {{I think it's because I don't have much masculine paper.  Hey!!  Maybe I should go paper shopping!!!}}  I chose my paper and stamp with men in mind, but still am not thrilled with the masculinity of it.  Do you think it's masculine enough looking for a guy?  I hope so because it's going to be sent to one.




Supplies...
~Fancy Panty "it's the little things" DP
~Our Daily Bread  "Bird and Butterfly Labels" image
~Sweet n Sassy Christmas Tags sentiment
~Hemp
~the Paper Studio flowers
~MS branch punch


Challenges...
Our Daily Bread Designs ODBDSLC276 - Anything that Grows...with ODBD 
Scrapy Land #45 - anything goes w/ brand of die from Scrapy Land (Spellbinders) 
The Male Room #39 - use flowers (must be masculine project)

Hello - TMS #359


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  Here's my card for this week...

 

I love it when the DP does all the work, don't you?  It is Prima "Romance Novel" and the tiny "hello" is from JustRite "Greetings From London."  I tied a button to gather the organdy ribbon, and it was all done! 

Here's our wonderful sketch from Patti... so many possibilities!!

 

This week, we're sponsored by Jennifer Tomasic, CTMH demonstrator.  She'll be offering this stamp set to the randomly drawn winner... "Living in Pictures"
