Cindy Lou Christmas

Yay, got to do another quick challenge! Went to Clean & Simple for the sketch since I will make more than one of the same card! (Need to catch up on my Christmas cards for Operation Write Home). I remembered I had this cute Cindy Lou stamp from Amuse stamps and knew it would be good for this sketch! And decided to use non-traditional colors!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great 4rth of July weekend!

A Warm Hello...

is the sentiment I would use if I had it for this card! Finally had a little time to make a simple card! I usually try my best to squeeze in some kind of crafting whether it be coloring, putting together a card, etc. just because it really is therapy after a long day and of's fun! :) I actually had this Soft Pencil digi already colored.

 I also wanted to share the card and matching tag I received from my partner for June, Grace.
It's so pretty!

Can't believe July is coming up so quick! 
I'm excited for the long weekend coming up!
Hope you're all having a wonderful week so far!

June SSS

Sad I haven't posted in awhile! Life's been busy! :) Guess it could be good and bad...I miss crafting!! I had to make time to finish my Secret Sister swap for June!! Don't want to be sending it late!! I made an altered notepad following a sketch from Mojo Monday. I like how it came out even though I took so long trying to match the colors! Hope she likes it!

And here's a magnetic calendar I made for her too...

My birthday was yesterday and just wanted to share some cards I received...

Gotta keep it more day of work til the weekend! Yay!
Thanks for visiting!

Flower with butterflies...

Hmm...could not think of a more creative blog post title! :) My brain is ready for the weekend! :) Got to do another sketch challenge...yay! I think it was my first time participating at Card Patterns! There's just so many challenges I want to do and not enough time!

I decided to make a matching gift tag...

Made these for my CATS partner...the theme this month was butterflies. 
I don't have any butterfly stamps so I had to use the punch.
Have a great weekend!

Cute Little Mermaid

I found this mermaid digi by Pink Cat Studio waiting to be colored! And used a starfish stamp by Your Next Stamp. Kept my card pretty simple again...

Challenge: The Sweet Stop

Have a great Thursday everyone!

Recycled Cards

Did some cleaning this weekend...if you know me, I'm a total packrat but I'm trying not to save every little thing anymore! It just gets crazy and you forget what you already have! I used to keep every single card I got! I'm finally starting to weed them out. For some of them, I just had to recycle them to make another card! I love finding ways to be green! :)

Most of them were thank you cards but it's one type of card everyone needs anyways.
Hope your week is off to a great start!
Thank you for your visit!

Let It Snow

Decided to make another Christmas card...cause it will be here before you know it and I don't want to be scrambling! :) I was digging through the many stamps that have not been inked yet...and I saw some Christmas stamps by The Cat's Pajamas. I love their penguins! This was my second card after my trip and wow, mojo is still somewhere else. Hopefully third is the charm! :)

Challenge: Sketch Saturday

Well back to work tomorrow...had a great long weekend! 
Hope you all did too!

Birthday Girl

Finally got to make a card after returning from vacation! It was nice to go on another trip! :) I had Birthday Anya already colored so I just need to find papers to match. I think my mojo was still on vacation! :(

I also wanted to share the goodies I received from my May SS, Jayne from Michigan. 

A beautiful card she made...

and a very generous RAK...
Thanks so much Jayne!
I love everything!

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend! 
Thanks for stopping by! 

*Edit 6/15/11- my Birthday Anya card won at TGF Farm Fresh Challenge!
Thanks so much!

Sending Well Wishes

Yay, got to do another challenge! I finally made my first "get well" card! Need to make a stash of these cards grandma asked me for one the other month and I didn't have so she had to buy. Used the Basic Grey paper: Hopscotch and I practiced more copic coloring...I watched some videos on youtube. Not many good videos though. Does anyone know other places to watch copic blending videos?

Thanks for visiting! I'll be back in a week...going on vacation from work! yay!
Aloha! :)
