Super Saturday Sketch #61

Happy Saturday Bloggers!
Here is my latest addition to the super Saturday sketch! When I finished this card, I have to say, I love this sketch. It will be perfect for so many different season, occasions that I know I will be using it over and over. I love when sometimes it just works that way!
My stamp is a cute stamp from Bugaboo stamps called BCrab Tubing and I added just a cute party hat for him and a snappy birthday sentiment. I used dazzling diamonds glitter on the cloud, stickles on the water. It's hard to see, but I added some crystal effects to the tube to give it a glassy look. Enjoy and I hope you get a chance to try the sketch!

Wild about you!

Good afternoon all!!!

I made this one yesterday but never got it up. Very little supplies to make this one. My background was a new sizzix folder I picked up this weekend..It had zebra stripes in it too :)
My leopard is just a 3D sticker I had. Very strange colors for me to use, but I love it!
Have a good rest of the afternoon.

Just Chicken In!!!

Hello and Happy Thursday!
One more day to go til the weekend!!! Yeah!!!!!!
Today is my day to post for the design team over at squiggle stamps! This is one of their brand new images called "feed the birds" I just love it! I have a feeling I will be able to do all sorts of fun projects with this one! If you love it, you can pick up a digital copy here in the Squiggle Stamps store! Love shopping for digital stamps. You buy them and get to use them right away..No waiting for them to be delivered :)
My papers are some super old scraps from provo craft pack river rock. This paper has been stashed for quite a while and I love the country look of it and thought it would be perfect. I am totally almost out of it, and I am thinking it's not available any longer, but I will have to look...oh does that mean craft shopping???
I sponged the ground and the sky and added stickles of course to make it sparkle. My sun is just some scraps and popped up.
Enjoy everyone and have a super fabulous Thursday!

You Sparkle!

I can't tell you how happy I am it's finally Friday. It has been a whirl wind full of craziness this week. It is nice to finally just sit and have a little craft time to myself.
Today's sparkly card comes from some brand new images from Squiggle Stamps. Her name is "miss Evie princess" and you can pick her up here in the fabulous Squiggle Stamps online store.
Since she is a princess of coarse I had to make it all girly! I brought out all my fun PINK goodies today. My pattern paper is from "The Paper Studio" philosofia paper stack and the rest of the elements are cut from my cricut.
Well, enjoy your weekend and take a peek at the squiggle blog if you get a chance..Lots of wonderful ideas popping up all the time!

Valentine goodies!

Happy Valentine's day Bloggers!!!
I hope everyone's love is giving them a special day today! My wonderful hubby gave me some beautiful flowers and we are headed out to lunch soon.
My girls were surprised this morning with these super fab Chinese gift boxes I made for them. All five boxes were decorated the same on the outside but embellished with a different valentine each on top. They were some cute Bo Bunny cut outs I picked up last year and I thought they would be fun to add to their boxes. Inside of course they are filled with yummy treats, lip gloss, little presents and their favorite..a $5 Starbucks gift card.
I think most of them were excited..some I think were still sleepy and getting ready for school. I think 6:45 to catch a bus on a Monday morning is not their favorite thing to do :)
It's so much fun having 5 daughters..I don't think boys would appreciate it the same way!
Have a wonderful day everyone!!!!!!

Thanks a bunch!

Hello bloggers!

It's my turn again to post a project for Squiggles blog! I am loving sharing my projects as a design team member there. Everyone is so talented. Everyday I walk away with a new idea for my next card/project!

Today I made a cute little 3x3 accordion style gift box and note card set. I even made fun matching envelopes. My stamp is one of Squiggle Stamps digi stamps called "picked for you" and you can pick her up here. I used some stampin up cardstock Pear and Peach. My designer paper is from My minds eye called laundry line. I had to add lots of stickles to make it all shine :)

I hope you like my box, now I just have to decide who gets it. I may just save it for the end of the year teacher gift.

If you get a chance, come check out the Squiggle Stamps Blog and look around..I promise you will love what you see!

Have a good afternoon everyone.

You warm my heart

Good afternoon blogger friends!
I can't believe it's Tuesday already. Another week somehow is just flying by! It seems like it was just the weekend and we were digging out of snow and in just three short days, it will be the weekend again. Hopefully that will go slow :)
Today's project is inspired by some brand new digi stamps I found. They are from "meljen's Designs" and are super cute. The best part is..This one was a freebie! Even better! Come take a look at all she has to offer here..I bet you will love them!
My papers today are super old designer paper from Stampin Up. I think it's called spring flowers or spring showers..not sure. When it retired I bought three packs of it because I loved it so much..It's almost finished now..I am using it sparingly :)
I added lots of fun stuff too. Cut some scrolls with my cricut "accent essentials" and added stickles of course, a Martha Stewart's edge punch and some silk flowers I picked up. Love those..just pull them off the stems and they work perfect!
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Super Saturday Sketch #58

Good morning everyone!
It's time to bring another super Saturday sketch. In actuality, this is a pretty simple sketch, but once it's mix with all different papers, I love how the side is offset..I usually don't do that :) I love it. I know I will be reaching for this one over and over.
My stamp is from Stampin Up..if the halo fits. I have had this stamp set for quite some time and I pull it out frequently. It was surely a good investment! My papers are some foil scraps I had. I am not sure who they are by, so sorry for that.
I just popped up the heart and and added some bling and dazzling diamonds glitter to finish it off.
Enjoy the sketch, I hope you get a chance to try it!

Hi Bloggers!
I hope everyone is doing well on this Thursday night. We are all dug out of our home and street, but the rest of the neighborhood is such a mess of snow everywhere. Hopefully it will clear out soon.
I just have a quick card for you today. I made it for a friend of mine who helps me smile every time I talk to her. She hasn't been feeling well, so I thought this would perk her up a little.

My stamp is a pink cat studio digi named Lily valentine ballerina and you can pick her up here.
My papers are from an old 6x6 paper stack and I just added some primas with a little stickles and bling. My ribbon is American Crafts.

Enjoy everyone and have a great evening.

BBQ Birthday

Good afternoon blogger friends!

I know I am probably jumping the gun here with a blizzard happening right outside my window, but I just had to do it! My brothers birthday is coming up at the end of the month and I just had to make this card for him. He is a BBQ guru and I felt this image was perfect for it! Just because we are in the middle of winter, doesn't mean I can't dream about burgers and sausages right of the grill :)
The stamp is from digi stamp boutique and funny enough it's called "BBQ Jim" Funny because my brother's name is Jim. If you even look carefully at the apron, I used some rub ons and wrote the name Jim on the front :) If you love the can find it here in the online store.
My papers are actually scraps. The base is more mustard from Stampin up. The tree is from cricut my community and the sun is just cut out with scraps. Being that it's for a guy..I was nice and only added stickles to the sun and a little gel pen for all the chrome.
Enjoy and hopefully we can have a cookout soon..I know the BBQ will be buried by morning, so not until a thaw for certain :)
