Happy Birthday Crystal!

The challenge this week is Sympathy cards with flowers on them. I don't think i hit it, i think my card is too cheery for sympathy! Oh well its a card, and it has flowers on it! ha ha

This card was pretty easy. Its all SU (i know you are shocked! i am too!).

I used Whisper white paper, chocolate chip paper, kiwi kiss and Walk in the Park DSP.

I stamped the flowers in kiwi kiss ink. I then used some felt fusion 2 flowers with old olive brads in the center (and a rhinestone because i ran out of olive! damn!)

I tied the baja breeze ribbon on the bottom and we have a card. I kept it simple. I will put the sentiment on the inside if i want to use it as a sympathy card.
Today is also my friend Crystal's birthday! She is living in Red Deer now, but is coming home on June 19th! I can't wait:)

I am still doing the SOA cards! There are so many challenges, i doubt i will get them done, but i will try! lol

For my cardstock i used Kraft, basic black and PTI white. The DSP is from DCWV Asian pack, and i love it!! The little fans are darling!
I coloured Wasabi Ketto with copics and my purple spica glitter pen. I sponged the edges with creamy caramel, it was way to white.
I finished off the card with some black primas, bella dots and i used my white gel pen to write the sentiment!!

Its Bella time!!

I really need to think of better titles! ugh..... Do you like my new blog layout?? The banner was done by Nancy and the background by Michelle!! :) I love it!! thanks ladies!

So its another sketch over at the Bellariffic Blog! Isn't it a good one?? I had a bella kit to use for this! I haven't used these papers in forever!! Another reason i love kits!!

I coloured Bella with copics then cut her out with nesties.

The cardstock is River Rock, Groovy Guava and white. I can't remember what the name of this DSP is, i am sure someone will tell me though. I really like the green tea one better than this one though.

I cut the sentiment out with my scallop punch and finished off the card with some guava ribbon, a prima flower with a flower centre.

I hope everyone has a good weekend! I have to work all weekend:( yuck!

Lindsay Day:)

What a fun challenge this was!! Lindsay is now making kits! Digi kits and they are so fun and easy! This card took me 20 mins!
I first coloured the cupcake with copics. I then printed out the kit, and when i did i put it on SU shimmer white paper (this was an accident, but a good one! lol).
I then cut the paper i wanted for the background, and my scallop along the bottom. I punched out the 2 embelishments and layered them.
i finished it off with some bling. Card is done!!
So be sure to check out what else Lindsay has at her shop and what the other DT members are up to:)
Also head over to Lindsay's blog for a FREE kit to try!!

Still stampin for a cause!!

I am on a roll!! Here is my next card! Its a Verve sketch, and i love them! Be sure to head over to the website and sign up! You have until May 31st to play!

Ok this card came together pretty easily! It was a card kit for Chrissy's monthly card kit swap! I am going to be sad when its over in June:(

Anyway Chrissy sent this kit and she sent the image and paper. These flowers were so quick to colour! I used copics and my spica glitter pen for the middle.

I used my EK Sucess border punch for the bottom. I tied a piece of ribbon from my stash, added some bling and stamped Thank you on the bottom (from fresh cut by SU).

The tan colour paper is from DCWV and its the asian set, and i used Certainly Celery and PTI white for the base!

I am off today too! My BF and i are going to make t-shirts on his new machine from Michaels! I will let ya know how that goes!!

Stampin Out Alzheimers!!

Wow what a great idea!! My Nany Sorely (grandma) and Nany Easton (great grandma) had Alzheimers, although it wasn't really bad, it was still there. So i am more than happy to be on board with this great cause!! For a $5 donation you can sign up to enter challenges and win prizes! There is tons of them so be sure to check it out!!

So for my card i actually did 2 challenges ( i didn't know the mojo sketch was for it! lol). The first is the sketch and the second is called 2 by 2. You have to use 2 colours (brown and pink) and 2 kinds of embelishments (but no more!)

Well since i have to make some Christmas cards for a swap i am in i decided to use my Taylored Expressions cuppies for this card.

I used PTI white and chocolate chip for my base. The patterened paper is by Dream Street papers and its called forever family.

I coloured the cuppie with copics and inked the edges with chocolate chip ink. I then found this cool pink and brown ribbon in my stash and used it. I stamped Very merry (from short and sweet SU) in chocolate chip and finished off the corners with some bling.

It was a pretty easy card! I love these cuppies!! I need to order more!!

Well i hope you are having a great Tuesday! Sorry i didn't post yesterday, i was pretty busy! I will be super busy this week too with Salad training at work (McDonalds are getting some amazing salads! yum!). Wish me luck!!

Its black, red and kraft time (or white)

Over on the Corrosive Challenge Blog today! This is my fave colour combo!!

I used a card kit i had for this because i wanted to try out this image. I think its rubber romance! Anyway it was fun to colour! I used Amy's sketch to start.

I coloured with my copics and spica glitter pen. I cut the lady out with my nesties, she didn't really fit, she was a big image! So she kinda got cut off a bit.

I then layered some of the dsp from the kit, it was all black and white. So pretty!

I finished it off with some bling in the corner. Oh and some velvet black ribbon!!

Make sure you check out the blog for the great cards by the rest of the design team, next week is their last week!! So them some love!!

Magnolia Only Sketch....

Over on the Just Magnolia Challenge blog there is

a great sketch! I am down to one magnolia kit! Crazy!!

This was a kit i had, and i love it actually. Its perfect for a man/boy birthday!

I coloured Edwin with my copics and cut him out with a nestie. I then coloured the edge with a copic because this was the biggest size on this set.

I then coloured the life savers and cut them out to use as my embelishments. I used both sides of the dsp and put a square in each corner.

I then used the eyelets in the corners and finished it off with the brads on top and the soft sky ribbon.

The Happy Birthday is from a SU set called On Your Birthday.

Hope you are having a great Saturday! I am working all day... yuck!

Its Fairy Time!!

I started off with TECC68, it was perfect for this image. I have no idea where the image came from, it was in my stash! She is cute though:)

Everything i used is from Taylors Key Ingredient Kits. I just love these kits, i can't wait for my next one to come in!

I coloured the fairy with copics and a spica gel pen for the wings. I cut her out with Nesties.

I finished it off with some ribbon from the kit and some prima flowers. I love how everything matches so well. I also put some bling in the center of the ribbon flowers.
Be sure to get over to the challenge blog and see what kind of cool prize there is!!!

Welcome Ellie the Elephant!!

Happy Lindsay Day:)

I started off this card with Jen's SFYTT and i loved the circles! i knew that Ellie would fit perfect in a circle!

Guess what?? I didn't use a card kit at all for this card! Can you believe it?? LOL

The DSP is Walk in the Park from SU, i had some scraps lying around and knew the Basic Grey would go with and elephant.

I printed Ellie out twice, once on the DSP and once on the white PTI paper. I then paper pieced Ellie, i think all elephants should have flowers on them ;)

I finished her off with some corduroy buttons and a piece of whisper white SU ribbon!

Pretty easy card! If you haven't tried these Digi Stamps yet you should! Lindsay's Stamp Stuff

Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has been up too!!

Its my Bellarrific card:)

This week over on the Bella Blog the challenge is a wonderful sketch challenge!!

You are going to be surprised that i didn't use a bella or my copics! I know shocking!! :) I got this image from karenabella when i was visiting. Its on water colour paper so i had to use my blender pen and ink. I love the way it looks though!!

I found some Basic Grey paper i had in my scrap drawer that i got through wish rak on SCS. I love how they all matched so i used 3 different ones! I think they are from the Gypsy line of papers ( i think they are older). I matted all the dsp with certainly celery. I also used a piece of celery ribbon in the middle.

The sentiment is from SU and is called Many wishes and More. I finished the card with some bella dots and some bling for the flower on the shoe.

I am a shoe girl, but different than most i would guess. I have shoes with flames, cow print, union jacks, and more! They are my rockstar shoes from when i played in the bands! :)

Hope you are having a great day!! Its suppose to be nice and warm all week and i am off for a few days!! YAY:)

Here is it:)

This is my first Squigglefly card!! I thought the turtle was soooooo cute:)

I started off by using Mojo87, i am excited i got to play on time this week:) I also pulled out Taylors march Key Ingredients kit for this one.

I punched the border with an EK sucess punch, i love this punches and they fit so nice in my punch drawer!

The saying is from SU called Full of Life. I stamped it with Chocolate Chip SU ink. I coloured Mr. turtle with copics and used some bling for the centre of the flower. I inked the edges with chocolate chip ink as well.

I finished off the card with 2 red blings and a red chipboard heart that i got from my friend Karen in NZ. This card also qualifies for the Squigglefly challenge for the week. 2 DSP, 3 embelishments and one chipboard.

Hope you are having a good day. Its so nice out but i have to catch up on my stamping! I am off tomorrow but i have physio and Abygail needs to get her second set of shots. So i will be busy! No worries i have a post for tomorrow:)

I used the sketch and stash sketch this week. Its a good one. I just flipped it to make it work. I coloured with copics. The paper is from My Minds Eye. I used my sizzix folder in the middle peice. Then i used my EK Sucess punch on the bottom of it.

I finished it off with some ric rac and a button.

Happy Victoria Day!! Heres a new picture of Abygail:)

Lets ROCK:)

WOO HOO!! i love this challenge so i am glad i came up with it ;) hee hee It really gave me a chance to use my rockstar Hanna stamp! The only problem i had was she was too tall for any of my nesties:( So i decided to cut her out:)

Both papers are from the rockstar pack of paper i have, and i bought the prima in the US last week! I had too its leopard print (i also bought zebra print ones too!). I also bought some with skulls on them!! Very cool:)

I used an old SFYTT, and kept the layers simple. I coloured Hanna with copics and a zig zag silver pen.

So hop on over to the challenge blog and see what the rest of the team came up with! They are GREAT!!

Here is a picture of Abygail trying to get on the table to steal Trentons food! LOL For a little dog she tries to get on everything!! She is one brave puppy!
Poor Morganna has been so sad all week! She is really jealous!! I hope they get a long one day:) Abygail runs up to her and kisses her on the nose and runs away, its so cute (well Morganna doesn't think so! ha ha )
Happy sunday! Fireworks tonight at my sisters house! Its always so cold this weekend every year! YUCK!!

I started with SC227 over on SCS (sorry i didn't save the picture!). I popped the coffee pot and coloured it with copics.
I punched the sentiment with my oval scallop punch. I finished off the card with some brackets and some black dots.

Card kit time:)

Thank god for these card kits, i don't think i would get any cards made without them!! I think i need a sitter so i can get something done. lol

So for this card i used Sc228 from SCS, i think Riley fit well in it:)

I love this dsp! The colours are a lot of fun! I wish SU had a minty colour!!

I coloured Riley with copics and the cherry with a spica glitter pen. I cut him out with a nestie and put some photo corners on there and did some stitching with my white gel pen.

I finished it off with some buttons that were in the kit and some chocolate chip satin ribbon.

Another easy card. Once i get a sitter i will take more time to get some good cards done:)

Merry Christmas:)

Oops wrong month ;) When i first got this Taylored Expression card kit i thought of Christmas because of the reds and greens. So when Lindsay let us use this deer i thought of a reindeer!

I started off with Taylors sketch and Taylors kit (these kits really do rock and you really should subscribe!!) I picked my papers from the kit and then printed out my deer (did you know that you can resize these to any size you want?? that is the great thing about digi stamps!!) and coloured her in.

I used Liquid Applique for the tail, spots and snow. Not much colouring to this really.

I then layered up my paper and finished it off with some ribbon and a cute buckle that came wtih the kit.

Also just so you know for every $5 you spend in Lindsay's store you get one free stamp!!

Happy stamping:)

hugs from abygail:)
