Foxy and some Blog Candy!

Here is a simple card I made for card club. The fox is from imaginisce the twitterpated collection. I think he is so cute! I didn't have a good saying stamp so I left it blank and figured they could add whatever saying they would like.

Now for the blog candy. Go here to enter for a chance to win some blog candy. I found it by way of Heidi's blog. I just love looking at blogs there is so much creativity out there in the world!

My oldest Daughter is Graduating from High school this week! I made her announcements, I ended up adding the oval class of 2009, after I took the picture of the example I made. I had some of the pretty argyle foil paper left over so I put together a card to go with her present.

Good Friends

My stamping friend Kristine always has the greatest card ideas, so for this card I cased one of hers. If you look closely, you can see the definitions for girdle, girl, girl-friday, girlfriend, girl scout, and girth, right on the dress form! How clever is that! I was thinking you could apply this to almost any shape, just pick your shape and find a good page out of the dictionary that works for that shape.

May the waves...

I cased this card from a stamping buddy, 5treasures, she makes the most wonderful cards. She used the seaside stamp set from Stampin up, and I used the seaside stamps from Crafty Secrets. This is one of my favorite sayings. It just makes me smile. I had a hard time taking a good picture, the sky sponging doesn't show up very well. I added stickles to the sand, and used the masking technique for the little girl.

Card Club at my house!

I belong to this wonderful group of stampers, we meet once a month at a different group members house where we do a monthly card swap, then we do a few projects that the host has come up with. Tonight I am the monthly host for my card club. I decided to keep it easy and did a spring card for one card and then a tile technique card for the other. I hope they enjoy both of them.

see ya later alligator

I have been trying really hard to use what I have on hand in my card making. I can't say I haven't spent any money on my addiction, but I can say it has been significantly less. For this card I used some ribbon that I got in a secret sister swap over a year ago, the alligator is from a Close to my Heart set I purchased well over a year ago, and never used. I used my cuttlebug tiny mosaic EF on the green paper. I have a beach set of stamps I have never used, and that is next on my list, but it looks like I will have to buy a lt. blue and a lt. brown stamp pad to make the card I want. Drats!
