The greeting farm:)

I made this simple card for one of the monthly card kit swaps i am in. Its one of the last ones, then i am taking a break for the summer, although i am sure i will miss them!
My cardstock is Chocolate Chip and Regal Rose. The dsp was with the kit so i have no idea what it is.
The image is from the Greeting Farm, but i don't know the name. I coloured it with copics.
I finished off the card with some CTMH bling. I like to keep swap cards simple because i have to make 6 at a time and i don't want to much on them for mailing purposes!
Well i hope you have a great day!!

Squigglefly Challenge #8!!

So todays Squigglefly challenge is to make an ATC...i haven't made one of these in years!! So i pulled out some old stuff and went to work.
I wanted to make a different ATC so i made a tag pull out one. The colours are bordering blue and brocade blue. The dsp is old SU paper (sorry don't know the name, it was a little scrap i found). I used the free Hummingbird from Squigglefly and printed him out pretty small, so small he fit in a 1 1/4 inch punch:) I layered it on a square scallop.
The Thanks is Heartfelt Thanks by SU and the little flowers is an old SU set that i only kept that stamp from so i have no idea what it is:)
I used the tab punch and some old SU organdy ribbon i got through wish rak! The button is also from SU
Be sure to head over to the Squigglefly blog to see what everyone else is up to:) There is also a 2 day blog hop coming up...so be ready!! Lots of fun prizes to be won!!

Oh Canada.....

Today's challenge over on the Corrosive Challenge Blog the theme is Patriotic. Make a card with the colours of your flag, or something to do with your country!
I bought this stamp from High Hopes forever ago and haven't even inked it yet! Its a really big stamp so i had to make a 5.25 X 5.25 card. This was the only nestie it would fit in too. (and some stuff got cut off, poor beaver!)
I coloured the image with copics.
For my layout i did my own and don't like it at all...ugh...i used Chocolate chip and the dsp is rockabilly by SU.
I used some Real Red ribbon and buttons and finished off the card with some SU corduroy buttons. OH and i had these photo corners left from another card so i used them too. The inside reads " greetings from Canada"
Make sure you head on over to the blog to see the rest of the amazing cards the DT made!!!

Ok so i have had this Gorjuss Girl coloured since i got her...and she was sitting ther collecting dust...i figured it was time to put her on a card!

I coloured her with copics and cut her out with nesties.

The dsp is mounted on Chocolate chip, the orange is My Minds Eye Bloom & Grow and the red is Rockabilly by SU.
Both were scraps on my desk, so was all the Chocolate Chip! I seem to be using a lot of it lately!

I used some bling i had lying around the sentiment is Bitty Birthday from SU.

HOpe you have a Gorjuss Day:)

Its a Scrappy Frogs Challenge Day!!

Well this was a tough challenge for me because i am not good with the whole pirate thing!! The challenge was to use this Pirate ship background to make a card! I decided to download the free Dragon too (because i need him for another project anyway!).

I coloured the Dragon and Background with Copics, it was fun to colour them:) I tried to make the wood look old on the deck, but i don't think it worked! lol

My colours are Green Galore and Baja Breeze. The stripped paper is from Piggy Tales.

I cut out the dragon and placed him in the middle. Oh i also used Mojo92 for this one as well!
The greeting is from the SU set On your Birthday and i punched it out with my SU punch.
I finished off the card with some corners and some bling (because every dragon needs bling right??)
So be sure to head over to the Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog to see what the prize is and what the rest of the DT came up with:)

The card base is certainly Celery with a piece of DSP from my stash on top.

I wrapped some white satin SU ribbon in the corners and some bella dew drops in the corners.

I coloured Bella with copics and cut her out with Nesties. This is also an old Amy sketch i found on my desk! Sorry i don't have the link or picture!!

Ok so who wants a free Digi Stamp??? Lindsay is giving one away and its this great 80's bass guitar (would i have Lindsay draw me anything else???)

I coloured the guitar with copics and used my gelly roll pen for the tuning pegs and pick ups. Then i cut it out with my nesties.

Christmas Monkey Style....

Over on the sketch and stash challenge blog this is the great sketch!!

I have had this Changito monkey coloured for a while now and thought he would fit perfect with the sketch!

I coloured him with copics, a jelly roll stardust pen and some liquid applique to his hat and boots.

I used my snow dots Cuttlebug folder for the background on top of a layer of Chocolate Chip Su paper and some PTI white as a base.

The ribbon in SU chocolate chip with a layer of some ribbon from my stash on top. I layer Changito on Chocolate chip.

I used my SU Photo corner punch and put some CTHM bling on them.

The snowflakes are Martha Stewart punch with CTMH bling in the middle.

I love the colours of this card!! I sooooooo miss Cool Carribean!! SU needs to get it back!!!

Well have a great day!! :)

Happy Apple Day....

Man this huggabugg is wayyyyyyyyyy too cute!! I just wanna smoosh her!!

This is my card for Bellariffic Friday!! I have been dying to use this paper because glitter apples rock!!

I coloured my huggabug with copics and used my white gel pen for the accents. I coloured the wings with my gelly roll pen. I then cut her out with nesties.

My card base is PTI white with green galore. I don't know what the paper is because i cut it off! i know duh...i think i got it from Stamping Bella though.

I then just used some strips of real red and green galore cardstock and tied some ribbon on them.

Great sketch Nicky!!

Here are some Father's Day pictures!! This is my dad with Abygail:)

Morganna looking all cool in Shannon's shades!

Abygail takes Morganna for a walk!! lol

Its a Squigglefly Day...

Mondays are squigglefly day!! I made this card to be a guest designer for Sheetloads! We were given the sketch and had to make a card. And then everyone votes to whose they like the best. Guess what?? I was in the top 5 so i will be on Sheetloads Ezine for July!! woo hoo!!
The card base is Kraft, then a layer of Chocolate chip. I used my scallop border punch all the way around it.
The next layer is a piece of Urban Oasis DSP by SU. I matted the little squirrel on some old DSP by SU, i think it was in a mini and it was a Christmas set...not sure of the name though.
I coloured the Squirrel with copics. The sentiment is a piece from another squirrel stamp i have.
I finished the card off with some ribbon from my stash and a SU button with some twine in the middle!!
Be sure to check out the Squigglefly blog for all the fun challenges!!

Elzybells Christmas card:) Challenge #17!

This card was made for a Christmas swap i am in. The them for June was a different fold...so here is mine:) I like the gatefold because its easy when you have to make 4 cards! Its also for the Corrosive Challenge Blog today as well, make a card with a different fold!

This card was so easy!! I used my Scor-pal. Then cut the panels (everything on this card is from Taylor's May Key Ingredients kit!)

I coloured the deer with copics and then cut them out with my nesties.

I also tied a ribbon to the bottom for something different.

And that is it:)

How about an Abygail picture?? Can you say AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW:)

CAS cards....

I made both of these cards for monthly card kit swaps i am in. I wanted to keep them simple for mailing purposes. Its so expensive to mail cards now a days!!
So this is SC231 over on SCS. I used Close to Cocoa as my background and the DSP came with the kit.
I coloured the mice with copics and layered them on some Pretty In Pink (i am waiting on my pink pirouette to come in!!)

Next is Nurse Nellie. I started with SC232 for this one.
I coloured her with copics and used my scallop square SU punch for the corners.
The background is Brocade Blue with a strip of the DSP that was in the kit.
The saying is a SU hostess set called Best Yet.
I finished off the card with 2 silver brads that were also in the kit.
I think i am almost caught up on my swaps!! Only a couple more to go and we are done for the summer! :)

Isn't Ian soooooo cute???

I got this image from my friend Dana. I am using it for a Greeting Farm Swap i am in. Its only a 4 card swap, so it worked out great!!

I started with a sketch i had on my desk from Verve Stamps, but its an old one. So sorry i don't have a link for ya!

I coloured Ian with copics and just cut him out (no nesties, i know shocking!)

Since its a swap my card base is Whisper White, with a layer of Chocolate Chip and the dsp is from Piggy Tales. I think it works great for a boy card:)

I finished the card off with some Chocolate Chip ribbon and 3 SU buttons! Easy as pie....ummm no wait i can't make pie....so easy as a card :)

The Little Birdie...

Happy Thursday everyone!!

For this weeks Lindsay Card i decided to use this birdie again, because i have him printed out already. Oh and he was coloured already too ;) I like to colour images while i am watching TV, then i feel productive:)

I started my card with Taylor's Sketch. Oh and i also used Taylor's April kit for this too! I really do love these kits!!

Ok so back to the card. For the half circle i used the biggest circle nestie i had. I should have put another colour on top of it for a layer, it kind of blends in with the paper. Oh well....

I then took a piece of ribbon and wrapped it around the card. To finish off the card i placed some primas and bling from the Taylor kit on a piece of orange card stock.
Be sure to check out all of the DT blogs today as there is a freebie hiding amongst them!!! :)

Something a little different...

I made this frame for Krista for her wedding:) I hope she likes it!

Her colours were hot pink with orange accents! This is the same paper i used on her card.

For the frame in the middle, i first used the inside cardboard to cut a frame, i then used the orange piece and traced the inside square, Then i cut out the middle and ended up with this cute frame effect.

I cut a strip of orange for the top and the bottom. I used some ribbon i got at the paper source in Boston, it matches perfectly!

I coloured Hitchedafellabella with copics and some dazzling diamond dust on her dress. I used my black spica glitter pen for fellas shoes and buttons.

I finished off the frame with some rub ons and some lovely prima flowers i got from Karen when i went there. I used some pearl backs for the center. I think it turned out pretty cute:)

This next frame is for my BF's mom since she is the one who bought me Abygail:) I was waiting for my stamps from Cowtown Stamps to come in. They have soooooooooo many doxie stamps:) I think i bought 6!! I want them all though!! ha ha

The paper is Urban Oasis i think from SU. I also used Chocolate chip for the frame and the sizzix swirls.

I used Prima flowers and bling from my stash in the corners.

Her name is done in rub ons:)

Well i hope you like my frames, they are at Michael's for $1.50! I have lots still to use, but i love them!! :)

Last weeks Bellariffic card!

Last weeks Bellariffic Challenge was a lovely Sketch by Jen! I love her sketches they are so easy to work with! This card is also for the Bella Show and Tell over on the SCS forum. I was going to use Rockabella (since the theme was tell us who you are) but i decided to go with the puppy thing:) I love dogs, all kinds of dogs! When i get my own place i want lots of dogs! :) I would love to own a shelter or something one day!

Ok so my card! I used Puppy Bella (i can never remember names!). I coloured her with copics and cut her out with a nestie.

PTI is my base and the rest is Taylor's Kit for May! Her kits rock! Really takes the stress out of making a card!

Really that is it! Nothing more to say about the card! So how about some puppy pictures???

This is her sleeping between 2 pillows with a pillow on top! LOL

Have a great day!
