Christmas Card making time!

I've found myself without a design team and see that I haven't posted in a while.  I've been busy making cards here and there......birthday, baby, wedding, teacher cards, thank you cards......and yesterday I made some Christmas cards!

They are Pinterest inspired, and I absolutely love them!



If you are in need of any custom made creations, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Tiddly Inks DT Call!

Tiddly Inks is having a DT call and I am throwing my hat in the ring!!  (Wish me good luck!!)



I had chosen 2 images to work on and see which I liked better in the end.......well it's a good thing I did!  The first one finished wasn't my favorite, but the second one I absolutely LOVE!

For the first card I used a freebie image, Awww Thanks.  I'm getting ready to send a batch of cards in a care package to a group of Coast Guard Servicemen and women who are stationed abroad.  One of them is the father to my daughter's best friend!  This one will go in with some others!


I colored in the image with my Tombow Art markers and used an old sketch from OWH (Operation Write Home), thought it was appropriate!  The paper is from Authentique Genuine collection, the brads are from my stash and the "hi" die is from Little Yellow Bicycle.

But the second "card" is by far my favorite!  My daughter is a dancer! There I've said it, and anyone with a daughter in dance will understand!  Everything has to be sparkly and usually pink!  LOL  As I am also a scrapbooker, this will ultimately go on a layout page!  

This image is also a freebie called, Tiny Dancer


I colored her in with my Tombow Art Markers, then fussy cut her out.  I started with a kraft base, cut it to the correct shape and size and covered it with the pink and white stripe paper which was in the scrap pile.  I popped her up with some pop dots.  The lace punch is Stampin Up as is the "dream" stamp.  The bling (both pink and clear), smaller craft tag, ballet slipper charm and pink seam binding are all from my stash.  Flowers are Prima, polka dot ribbon is AC, stickles in stardust and Distress ink is TH Tea Dye.  I added a little doodling around the edge and tied on the pink seam binding and MM Wedding ribbon.  I love it and so does the tiny dancer in my life!  This one is my entry for the DT Call!  

Here's to nothing!

Leave me some love if you like what you see!

Spring has Sprung!

Happy Spring!!  The next two week challenge at Clear It Out Challenge Blog is Springtime!  The Stash item is to add a flower!

Our sponsors this time are Bugaboo Stamps and Oddball Art.  My image today comes from Bugaboo.  With Mother's Day quickly approaching, I thought these tulips looked like a perfect image for a lovely Mother's Day Card!


Used my Tombow Art Markers to color the image, the paper is from a pad found on the clearance table at Joann's!!  The flowers and brads are from my stash and the stamp is from Frisker's.

Join in on the fun at Clear It Out!!

P.S. We are still looking for 3 more DT members to join us. Please email Laura (ciochallenge@outlook.com) with your interest along with your blog address. No experience required :)

The Best of 2015!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!!

This is the final post of 2015 for me!  At Clear It Out Challenge we were asked to pick our favorite card of the year........of course I couldn't pick just one!  LOL


This first one is from March and used Lacy Sunshine!  I sent this to my soon-to-be-born-at-the-time great nephew who was born in July!


This one is from April!  Using Bugaboo!  Had fun making this one!  My 8 year old daughter helped me pick out "monster colors!"

See you all on the flip side in 2016!
