Facebook Friends On Your Birthday

This is a card made for the birthday celebration over at The Paper Shelter...  They are doing a blog hop and their usual card challenge, so the hop isn't a requirement, but well worth the trip!  :)  For this card I used an image called Coffee Break.  I looked all over the place for the sentiment knowing I had it, but thought it was from another company...NOPE!  It was from a fun Bugaboo stamp set called Stella Facebook Birthday.  I spent more time looking for the sentiment than what it took to make the stinking card!  LOL  That is what happens when you have something in your mind and you are dead set on using it!  haha  I used an embossing folder on the burnt orange cardstock.  All of the colors came from a cardstock pack set, and they matched so well with the pre-colored image!!  All I really added was the pink pearls and ribbon.

Thanks for looking!

A Year Full Of Smiles

This is a card made for the birthday celebration over at The Paper Shelter...  They are doing a blog hop and their usual card challenge, so the hop isn't a requirement, but well worth the trip!  :)  For this card I used a sweet winter image called Warm In The Winter.  I added some lace, a sentiment from Create With TLC, tons of flowers, some gems, leaf dies, a small amount of cheese cloth, a unicorn die and a cat die.

Awkward Holiday Chaos Days 6 & 7

Here are two more cards for the 'tis the season for awkward holiday chaos' over at the Catch The Bug Challenge Blog. 

Day 6:  What the Fruit Cake?

For this card I used all of the colors...I think.  LOL  I used the image Sassy JJ Christmas Box.  I used an oval cookie cutter die for the frame and distressed the edges of the rectangle layers.  I used three rose buds and a white bow.  I added three pearls in the other corners.




For this card I went with (Sentiment, Non-Traditional Christmas Colors and Star).  I used the Snowman Couple image.  I used a snowflake border die and cut it out so I could make it go around the edge of the circle.  I added lace and ribbon and gems.  The star was made using three stitched cookie cutter star shaped dies.  The sentiment was cut using a die as well.

Awkward Holiday Chaos Days 4 & 5

Here are two more cards for the 'tis the season for awkward holiday chaos' over at the Catch The Bug Challenge Blog. 

Day 4:  Is That and Ugly Sweater or What?

I went with option 1, 2 layers, polka dots and the color red.  I used the Nuvo Crystal Drops (pearl) for the polka dots, making it look like snowfall.  My red card base was layer one, the two images on the same page are layer two.  The two images are Winter Bird Trio and Kidz-Winter Girl.


Day 5: Smile For the Camera photo inspiration:
For this card I went with the reds and greens and the tree in the picture.  I used Little Penguin Winter Bench for my image and added my own sentiment.  I kept this pretty simple too (like the first one).

Catch The Bug Daily Challenges

This week Catch The Bug Challenge Blog is doing a daily challenge with some HUGE prizes for the winners...and there will be a lot of winners!!  It is called "'tis the Season for Awkward Holiday Chaos".  Here are the daily challenges:


I've made the first three and will post them here on this post...I hope that is ok??


I used snowflakes for this one and JJ Snowflake as my image.  I used a snowflake embossing folder, a snowflake border punch and some pearl snowflakes.  I stuck with the two colors, red and white.  I added stickles to add a bit of a shine.



I kept this one fairly simple by using Christmas Trio Block and a sweet Christmas sentiment from Create With TLC.  I chalked in some color added stickles and pearl Nuvo Crystal Drops.  I hand drew the lines down the center of the blocks.


I must admit I totally guessed and played it safe on this one since I made it last night.  I kept an elephant in mind and made a gift card holder.  The image I used is Elephant Christmas Tree.  I used chalk, pencil and gel pen for this one.  I used some fun gems all around the image to frame it in.

Here is another fun pre-colored image I got from My Besties by Sherri Baldy!!  This is Super Girl.  I used the sketch from this week's sketch challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I used a star embossing folder for the white paper and drew stitching around them, layered on blue.  I used some fun square and star punches and a triangle die set.  I added a bow to the middle one and called it good!

Magical Birthday Mermaid

I was in the mood to create a card tonight, and since it is rare that I have time to do it anymore, I jumped on the opportunity.  I just purchased this fun image from Sherry Baldy/My Besties pre colored images.  This is Enchanted Magical Unicorn.  You can get it in black and white HERE or colored HERE.  I used a few different papers...then have to wonder why since I covered them with all of the fun stuff.  LOL  I added burlap, fish beads, some dies, flowers, shells, a bottle of fun, a sentiment, some stick pins I made and a sentiment I created.




So many things to look at!  LOL  I think maybe I got a bit carried away, but it was fun!  LOL

My Super Awesome Friend

This fortnight at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is 'make your own background'.  I chose to use my Spirograph.  We have two fantastic sponsors, A Day For Daisies and Polkadoodles.  For this card I used and image from Polkadoodles called Knight & Dragon.  I love Polkadoodles fort their pre-colored images...have I mentioned how much I dislike coloring?  LOL
For this card I used a butterfly border punch (the butterflies are the scraps), a floral edge punch and an oval punch.  Hand cut out the sentiment/stamp.  The DP and sentiment is from the set too.
