"Friends are the Flowers of Life - Tiddly Inks Blog Hop".

Good morning everyone!!!!
Today is a fun day! I am participating in the Tiddly Inks blog hop! It will be a fun time jumping around to see every one's creations! I always learn so much when I blog hop! There are so many fabulous creators out there and its just great to see how different every one's styles are!
Today I uses the same stamp from the other day "Wryn-grow with love"I don't have very many of the Tiddly Inks stamps, but my collection is slowly growing. I feel it fit perfect with the theme...friends are the flowers of life and I would have to agree..everyone needs some great friends in their life and they can only blossom and bloom when you give them the love and kindness they need.
If you get a chance, head on over to the challenge blog and see if you can find some inspiration of your own. Blog hop begins at  6 pm.

Wild About You

I love when the UPS guy shows up with a box filled with goodies! Today I am sharing a fun scallop circle card I was able to throw together. Made with one of my new Stampin Up sets Zoo Review. We are always at the zoo and love it. I love the outdoors and just walking around. It seems each time we go there is something new if it's the different animals who are out or just the change of seasons.
I just added a few touches to finish this one off. A little bling and some crystal effects on the giraffe himself. The holder inside is just a grass punch bunched 3 times.
Enjoy everyone!

All Things Grow with Love

Hello everyone!
I have another challenge card to share with you today! I was playing with my brand new Tiddly Inks stamp called "Wryn-grow a little love" Isn't she cute. The challenge over at the Tiddly Inks challenge blog is celebrate. What is better than to celebrate LOVE..especially so close to Valentine's day. I am lucky enough to have many people in my life to love and it's a great thing to celebrate everyday!
I had lots of fun adding goodies to this one. I used some primas with a touch of stickles, and the butterfly is a punch from stampin up and I just cut around it to make it a bit smaller and added some accents to match my project. I hope you have some love to celebrate this Valentine's day and come take a look at the Tiddly Inks store and challenge blog. Have a great day everyone!!!

Recycle Challenge

Hello everyone!!!
Today I bring you a fun project from Squiggle stamps. This time the challenge is "recycle" and the design team came up with lots of fun ways to use your recycled items in your crafting world.
My recycle project comes from an extra piece of cardboard packing material I would have normally just thrown away in the recycle bin! I made it for my oldest daughter who is getting married this year. I wanted to use the image in a different way than a wedding so I thought I would add their original anniversary of dating each other. I love making just because gifts and this is one of those times I get to.
I covered it with some pretty paper from basic grey and added some glitter, my coloured image and lots of extras! It's really hard to see but this one is full of sparkle and shine..just the way I like it! The image is called "true love" and you can pick it up in the squiggle stamps store. There are lots of fun images to choose from if you want to try out the challenge yourself! Head on over the the squiggles challenge blog to see all of the fun goodies the talented design team has made!

Best Wishes

Hi everyone!
While I was blog hopping today I found a great site with some fun sketches. Best of all they have a challenge too! Who doesn't love a great challenge and sketch to get you motivated!
This was an interesting sketch when I started and I wasn't sure I could really do it justice, but by the time it was finished and glued together, I really loved how it all fit together!
The sponser this week is Bugaboo stamps so I decided to use my new "freebie" I picked up this week from the online store. I added the best wishes myself with a rub on. The board comes blank so you can add whatever you would like! I printed a second image in the same size so I could pop up his head. I added a little smooch to the outside of the frame to give a little sparkle.
If you have a chance, come and look at the sketches by Carly blog and try the challenge. Some amazing talent at a young age!
Have a great weekend everyone.

Eat the icing first!

Hi everyone..
Another fun card to share with you today! This one is if a stamp called "hello cupcake" from My Favorite Things. Isn't she just darling. I totally agree with her about eating the icing first! Sometimes when we go out to eat, I will order dessert first because I never have room to enjoy it otherwise. This way, I can take my leftovers home and enjoy my dessert!!!
My paper is just some old scraps from K&Co. I added a few gems and some magic on my cupcake. Lots of fun but it's making me hungry for cupcakes!
Have a great day everyone!

A honey of a day

Good morning everyone!!!
The kids are all back off to school after a wonderful holiday break and I must say, I miss them already, but I am HAPPY to have some "me" time again. I really have missed just sitting down and creating.
My card today is one of my older stamps from stampin up called "just buzzin by" and I must say..I love these cutie pie bee's. I use a 6x6 paper pack from my mind's eye "stella rose" and my copic markers to colour the hive and bees. My bees of course are cut and popped up and finished it all off with a little dazzling diamonds glitter and some smooch irridescent. The inside just finished off with another un-popped bee. I hope you love it..and back to playtime for me!
