Had fun making this card even though I did not color! All the images (the ice cream part) are paper pieced. Love images with the smileys! DP is Echo Park 'Sweet Day' and used images by Lawn Fawn and sentiment by C.C. Designs. I got the layout idea from the card I saw here. Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments!

Just made it for this challenge too! Made this magnetic calendar for one my co-workers using these super adorable neko cats by KittyBee Designs! Again, got these when I was in Hawaii! I remember these cats sitting in restaurants and stores, etc. for good luck in Hawaii but it's been awhile so I actually had to Google the colors of the cat! :) Thanks again for stopping by and have a great day!

Made it in time for the sketch challenge at Fetch a Sketch! Wanted this to be super CAS to show the cute Taj stamp I got when I went to Hawaii last month! They are supposed to be animal popsicles...just had to have this! And I thought of this image when I got this sentiment from Paper Smooches! Have a great Sunday!

Made a CAS card using a cute Lawn Fawn image and sentiment is by Paper Smooches. DP is Echo Park 'Hello Summer' and used the sketch from here. Colored the ice cream with Copics. I tried to blend the 3 colors to look like rainbow sherbet...something my family loved to eat in Hawaii! Hope you're all having a great Sunday!

A quick post to share a birthday card I made for my stash! Used 'Birthday Chloe' from Sparkle Creations. Used the fun sketch from here. Sentiment is by Verve and DP is Echo Park 'Everyday Eclectic'.
I needed a new calendar by my computer so I made this super simple stand up calendar. Embossed the background and used the cute image by The Cat's Pajama's!
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Made this fun card using an oriental embossing folder, cherry blossom paper punch and washi paper! I cased my card from here. Good way to use my washi scraps! I kind of messed up on the design of her kimono. I wanted to do white dots but it wasn't showing up too well so I went over with black. I left it because I already colored everything else! :( Oh well...I still like everything else. Thanks so much for your visit...and sweet comments!

Got a head start on a Valentine's Day card. (or just for love in general) Got to use this cute Sweet November stamp from the 'Love Bug Fun' set! Too cute to pass up!! I paper pieced the heart using DP by Martha Stewart and background DP is We R Memory Keepers 'Love Struck'. Sentiment came with the set and paper punched the two little hearts. Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!

Made this card using a cute stamp from the Meoples 'I want Candy' C.C. Designs set. Sentiment is also C.C. Designs 'Sweet Treat Logos' set. I'm glad to get back to crafting...very relaxing! Colored with Copics and used DP Echo Park 'Hello Summer. Used the sketch from here.
Now that I'm back from Hawaii...I wanted to share some simple projects I made...
Simple cards using Spellbinders and image is Meoples by C.C. designs and did an emboss resist technique...
Close up...I also added Stickles around the border...
For my gifts, I waited til the last minute and ended up rushing to make these bags! Had to think of something easy so I just paper punched the DP (Recollections from Michael's) and put a sentiment in the middle.
Happy New Year everyone and best wishes in 2013! :)
