Miss You

Isn't this little guy just the cutest! I followed the sketch from Amy R's Friday sketches, unfortunately it is from last Friday, so if you go there today you will find a new sketch for you to try! I have her link on my side bar she has the coolest blog, and I love her Friday sketch challenges. My cute turtle guy is from whipper snapper and my sentiment is from studio G clear stamps.

I am an INK girl!

I took the plunge and applied for the Artful INKables design team and I made the team along with 9 other very talented women! I am a INK girl! I couldn't stop smiling all day yesterday. If you click on the light gray words in the first sentence you will be taken to the link where you can see the list of wonderfully talented women I will be working with! I'm so excited to be given this chance, I can't wait to get started.

Chicken Soup makes everyone feel better....

well, everyone except the chicken of course! I made this cute card to cheer up a sick friend. I had seen a similar card on a blog, and thought what a great idea for a get well card. I went in search of cup of soup packets and found these Lipton soup ones they come 4 in a box for just under $2, and are the same size as hot cocoa packets. I made my card template myself, but if you have a template that holds a hot cocoa packet that will work too. My chicken is from whipper snapper, the saying I typed up on my computer. I think this would make a great group project. Get well cards are always good to have on hand.

The Cutest Bear

Don't you agree? I just think he is the cutest bear ever. He is from CC designs stamps. They have him in several stamp sets I have the "Bear Hugs" and the "Scenery Set."
On the first card I used SU paper and when I stamped the bear sitting I also stamped him on a post it note and cut him out, to make a mask. After I water colored him on the white circle, I used the mask to cover him and sponge blue ink for a sky effect. On the second card I also did masking with his feet so he is standing on the grass.

Life is like...

...a lot of things, but I think this kid quote stamp by Inkadinkado, is one of the funniest life quotes I've heard. I made this a simple card, because I think the quote should be the focal point. I used lime ricky patterned paper by Basic Grey.

Edward and my Twilight Tuesday Challenge

This is my Edward! I have read the Twilight books, listened to them on CD, own the first movie and music soundtrack. I am really excited about New Moon coming out, especially after seeing the trailer and the way Jacob turns into a wolf. What can I say, I am a Twihard!

I made this card for the Twilight Tuesday sketch/inspiration Challenge. I love, love, love their blog, it's one of the many blogs I stalk. Right now they are doing a special challenge with The Greeting Farm and if you enter you have a chance to win a Greeting Farm stamp set. So go on over to the Twilight Tuesday Blog and check it out.

I love driving through California during wildflower season. The poppies stretch out for miles like a beautiful orange carpet. I saw this poppy stamp by stampendous and had to have it. I colored the image with my watercolor pencils and blender pen, then I applied spiced marmalade distress stickles to the flowers.

Butterfly Card

This is the card I put together for card club. I think everyone will enjoy putting it together. I used the new sizzix butterfly die from Stampin Up, an oval quickutz die for the body. I embossed the white paper with my Swiss dot Cuttlebug folder. The stamped saying is a clear $1 stamp.

Go Green!

I got this really cute set of go green stamps from Unity stamp Co. I actually copied this card right out of a card magi zine issue. I just really liked it! I did see where someone made a card with the earth stamp that said "you mean the world to me" so I think the set could still be pretty versatile. I found the twill in the trim section for sewing at Joann Fabrics, it came in 4 different colors and a lot cheaper by the yard then at the scrapbook store!
