Carnival Time!

Sorry I'm late!

Popping in to share my latest Chi Chi Memories card...

This week I used the adorable Cute in Glasses girl- something about her made me think of going to a carnival or fair...

Carnival Girl

I pulled out these ticket stamps from a set, Life is a Carnival, from The Craft's Meow (unfortunately, the store is closed) to create my background and for some quick & easy embellishments!

& did you see Chi Chi Memories is having a DT & Guest DT call! Check out all the details on the blog!

AND don't forget to play along with the CCM challenge- hopefully you were able to catch the sweet freebie yesterday (if not you can find her in the store here!)

Thanks for stopping by!

April Freebie!

It's mid-month and that means is freebie time at Chi Chi Memories! This month's digi is so cute!

CCM April Freebie

Who does she remind you of?? The second I saw her, she made me think of Rapunzel from Tangled!

Be sure to rush over to the Chi Chi Memories blog and grab her while she's free! & while you're there join in on the fun and play along with the monthly challenge!

FFF: Color Inspiration

It's time for another Farm Fresh Friday Challenge at The Greeting Farm!!

This week Jodi is our hostess with the most-ess, and she chose to do a photo color inspiration challenge! The photo she found is just so fabulous and fun- I couldn't wait to create! Check it out...

I totally love this color combo! Especially since I've been on this bluish-aqua mode lately. I used Anya Celebrates and had to give her some fun PINK hair! :)

Make a Wish

I kept my layout pretty simple to play up the fun, bright & bold colors!

Please head on over to The Greeting Farm blog and check out my fellow design team's wonderful creations! (pssst... I'm not the only one that had pink hair! :))

Stenciled Easter Egg


So last night... late last night, I had an idea pop into my head and I just *had* to put it down on paper- literally!

I decided to make another Easter card using 2 stencils to create my giant egg- an oval nestie diecut to make the shape of my egg and this chevron patterned stencil (made by prima)!

Playing along with Virginia's View Challenge #2: Stencils! and the CAS-ual Fridays: Good Egg

Happy Easter
Made an ombre effect with picked raspberry and sugar spun distress inks and finished them off with one of my favorite new sets from Winnie & Walter (The Big, the Bold, and the Happy), & the Easter sentiment and the lil birdie are from Lawn Fawn!

Thanks for looking! :)

Happy Easter

I couldn't wait to get the new Chi Chi Memories April digis colored when I first saw them.. SO stinkin' cute!

This week I'm sharing one with you just in time for the upcoming Easter holiday- she would just be perfect for Easter cards, or even on some Easter basket gift wrap! She's a super cute Bunny Girl...

Happy Easter

Using my circle punch I punched out some teeny lil 'Easter eggs' from some washi tape- what's an Easter card with some eggs?

I'm also playing along with the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge: The Good Egg too!

Thanks for stopping by!

April Showers bring...

Water puddles??  LOL I thought that might be a fitting title for this fun & quick card I put together for the Some Odd Girls FB Challenge- "April Showers"

I got this Stompin' Tobie image specifically for my son because boy does he love water- puddles, playing with the garden hose, bath time.. you name it anything that includes water and he's there! He received a pair of rain boots for Christmas I can't for it to actually rain so he can give them a try! :)

April Showers

I kept it pretty clean and simple, & I knew I had some scraps of this holographic wave paper that would make a perfect puddle!

You're Tweet!

It's not very often that I post more than once a day (so please see my 1st post of the day here)

But I couldn't help it when I was doing my usual blog reading catch up and I found this new-to-me company, Newton's Nook Designs! There's a sketch challenge going on (& you know how much I ♥ a sketch!) and they even have a couple of freebie digis up for grabs- so I just HAD to play along! :)

I'm trying really hard to put a dent in my scrap paper pile and thought this lil birdie would look super sweet paper pieced! Added a bit of twine and I called it done! :)
