Fun Friday!!!

Hey everyone!  It is Fun Friday time at Your Next Stamp!  Check out the YNS blog for the sketch and colour combo and to see all the dt cards.  You can use them both or pick just one it is totally up to  you!

I have used both the sketch and colours (or tried to use something similar) for my card today along with the super sweet Sweet Baby set.  A friend just had a sweet little baby boy and I thought this would be perfect for her.

YNS Fun Friday!

Hey everyone!  It is the first Fun Friday of July over at Your Next Stamp and there is a brand new sketch and inspiration photo!  As always you can use one or the other or both!

A very close friend had her baby this week and I decided to use the sketch and a couple of the colours from the inspiration picture to make her a baby card using King of the Crib and the Stripes & Stitching sets.

Baby Boo Shower Hop!


Hey everyone!  All the girls over at The Greeting Farm decided to through Jessica a little Baby shower hop to celebrate the upcoming birth of her little baby girl!  I know that I was so excited for Jessica and Chris,they are both wonderful people who I just adore, and are wonderful parents!

I am the last stop on the hop so you should have arrived here from Maria’s blog, if you want to hop along the hop it starts at the TGF blog, let me say the girls have gone above and beyond for this hop!  I love all of their cards!

Okay, so it is obvious that they are having a girl so WHY did I use cute little fish?!  Well, Jessica’s husband and I have a little running joke about fish so I thought this paper would be perfect for the card today!  Chris if you are reading this with Jess…  BLOOP!   🙂

Drunken Stampers Challenge #6 ~ Inchies

Happy Saturday!  This weeks challenge at the Drunken Stampers is inchies!  Now I have never made inchies before, but isn’t that what a challenge is all about?  A little push to try something new and get that mojo movin’!  I had fun with this card, I stamped, coloured, masked and airbrushed it before I cut it all up! 

Argh!  I swear I had all the little suckers on straight and even, but I just looked at the picture and I noticed the bottom centre square is slightly off!  Oh well, I will have to fix that before I send this out to my step brother and his wife next week.  😀   

I even finished the inside of this one,  something I rarely ever do.

Paper: Bazzill, October Afternoon  Stamps: Amy R Stamps, Autumn Leaves  Ink: Memento, Copic markers  Accessories: Ribbon, Button, EK punch, DMC floss.

I can’t wait to see all the creative inchie creations this week at the Drunken Stampers!  Have a great Saturday and thanks for stopping by!


Happy Thursday!   Today’s card is for Lisa’s Scrap Shack.  We were given a monochromatic challenge, and this is what I did.  I’m sure that this card will be put to good use in a few months!  Congrats!

Well, school is almost over for another year and there are many fun field trips and events for the kids right now that my days seem like they just blend together.  I haven’t had time to stamp for a couple of days, but I hope that I get a chance today.  I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
