I love sketch challenges and, I will usually try them if I like them. I found this one on this blog. I thought it would work well with my coffee stamps. I hope you like it! -Jen

Seize the Cupcake!

I love this sock monkey stamp set! I paper pieced the monkey with paper from the sock monkey line. He really has so many possibilities! I need to get the extra accessories set that goes with him. I made this card for my dear friend. We have an ongoing joke about the saying!

Some days you're the dog...

...and some days you're the hydrant! I think that is so true! I got the idea for this card from a friend awhile back and just now got around to making some. The dog, paw & hydrant stamps are from SU, and the saying stamp is from TAC.

Happy Turkey Day!

I know what your thinking, it's not even Halloween yet! But, I have to say I LOVE Turkey Day! It's not the turkey, it's everything else, the time of year, being with family, football, and all the side dishes, sweet potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, and of course my famous pumpkin bread Yum!
So now that i have explained myself, here is the low down on the turkey! I got the idea for this turkey card from a really old paper crafts magazine, November 2004 to be exact. It was an idea for a scrapbook page, and I thought it would make a great card. I hand cut and chalked the turkey, then embossed the squares behind the turkey with my polka dot CB embossing folder. I inked up some of the edges, then stamped "Happy Turkey Day" and used my SU tag punches, and tied the tag on with twine.

Halloween Treats

These are the treats i made for my stamp club friends. I made the candy corn holders years ago when i sold DOT's now called Close to my Heart. When i saw them on SCS i remembered how cute and easy they were to make. The mummy candy bar holder was an idea from a card i made a couple of Halloween's ago.
