Summer fun

Hello everyone.
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I have had a nice day in my crafty place today. These are a few of the creation I have come up with to share. The first card and tag are from Kraftin' Kimmie stamps. Of course I had to fit some summer stuff into the day. And I actually noticed today, I make a lot of mermaids. I am not sure why I love them so much, but I just can't get enough of them. For the card, I added some extras from the sponge bob cricut cartridge and the tag has some really fun glitter paper along with some more scraps. My fairy card is made with some new graphic 45 paper I picked up at Archivers the other day. I just took some of the images and glittered them up and put it all together. It's one of those that is prettier in person.

"hi"~squiggles style

Hello everyone.

My day today for the Squiggles blog. I hope you get a chance to come over and see all the fabulous projects the wonderful design team has been coming up with! Today I used and image part of the Liliputs collection. I think these are my favorite..she is so fun a whimsical! Her name is "chatty girl" and you can pick her up for yourself just by clicking here! My skunk is a fun little embellishment I picked up and thought he was just too cute. It only took me a day before I had to fit him in somewhere. I just thought he was adorable and couldn't resist. My paper is wild wasabi and baha blue from stampin up and I just cut out the tree free hand and added some grass borders with a border punch. The "hi" itself is just some thickers I added to a piece of cardstock. I hope you love it and head over to see the squiggle blog. If you are intersted for a chance to be on their design team, click here for more details. It's a lot of fun if you have time to commit to the team.

Kind thanks

Good evening bloggers!

Today I have two cards to share. The first one I used a sweet stamp from digi stamp boutique. She was one of those I just thought was too cute to pass up. You can grab one for yourself here. I figured I am always needing teacher cards so now I am ready all in hand when I need one :)

The second card is made with an old stamping up set I have called fishy friends. This is one of those sets I grab over and over so it was fun to take it out again.

My paper is peach and pear from SU and some leftover DCWV pattern paper. Finished up with a little ribbon and some bling.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and we are getting closer to the weekend!!!

Summer Bookmark

This is just a fun bookmark I made for a swap. I used an image from Digi stamp boutique name Kira mermaid. If you like it, feel free to grab one for yourself here. My paper is from core-dinations and coloured with my copics. Added some glitter to the starfish and jelly roll metalic to the fins.

Have a good day!

Beach Babe

Hello everyone..

Can I just say I love this image! Sometimes I feel just like it on a summer day..though I don't have a nice beach nearby to relax with a cocktail, but I can dream :)

The image is one of Mo's digital designs and you can grab one for yourself here. My paper is that fabulous paper from Armerican crafts call hello sunshine. My cardstock is SU crumb cake. My flower is just a handmade paper flower I put together. I added some ribbon, a little crystal effects on the glass and sunglasses and just a little glitter on the polka dots.

Enjoy and I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Happy Fathers Day!

Happy fathers day to all the fabulous dads out there who give every day to their kids!

I made this one with the "all in the family" set from stampin up. I had to make my hubby a long card because our family is so big, but it was lots of fun trying to fit everyone in there. Just in case you can't figure it out, left to right..Barney, Tugger, Kirsten, Kimberly, Kayla, Dad, Maddy, Me, Katarina, Kitty, Katie and Betsy.

My paper is soft suede and some extra scraps and coloured with my copics. Just added a little ribbon and not one speck of glitter! I really wanted to add it, but I thought since it was for my hubby, I would lay off the glitter today :)

Have a wonderful day everyone!!!!!

Wedding bliss!

Good morning everyone! My day at the squiggles blog with another super fabulous squiggles image!

I have to say this was was totally inspired by my own anniversary I just had last Friday. My dear hubby and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary and it really seems like yesterday. This wonderful stamp called true love couldn't be more perfect for my card. I used some scrap papers and ribbon and added a few flowers and a stick pin. The white dress is hard to see but, I used a glitter pen and shined up the whole thing! You know I can't get enough glitter :) Super simple, but I love it. The sentiment is computer generated and fit our lives perfectly!

I hope you love my card and head on over to squiggle stamps to stash up one for yourself.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Another scollop today!!!

Wow..I tell you I have missed my blogging!!!

I have been enjoying a fun time in Niagara falls with my cutie pie hubby. It's our first vacation together since my first daughter was born almost 21 years ago. We had a fabulous time and just catching up all week and I got to play today!!!!!!

I made this cutie for a swap I am in for summer birthday cards. I thought it would be nice to do a little different card for everyone..Plus I got to play with all the fun stuff I have missed that way. You can find him yourself at bugaboo stamps if you wish or look around for some other fun stamps she has. You can find this crabby guy in the critter section. Lots of charactors to choose from!
Have a wonderful day evening everyone and I will be playing to make up for all the time I lost :)
