Little Miss Muffett Stamps- GDT

I told you I had lots going on this month...

I was asked to guest design for Little Miss Muffet Stamps by my so very sweet blogging friend, Faye! These images (both stamp and rubber) are cute as can be- how could I say no?!!



Last week- my nephew went on a 5th grade science camp with his school. To keep them from getting too "homesick" (no parents were allowed- just teachers and camp advisors) they encouraged family to send them cards and letters. So on to my card...

I thought this cute Swings 'n Slides Spring Morning image would be just perfect for him!

Hello Camper

Stamped the background with my favorite woodgrain stamp (MFT), colored this cutie with my copics, and finished it off with the sentiment from Winnie & Walter!

Be sure to check out the Little Miss Muffet shop for all of their adorable images- I want them ALL!

Happy *almost* Friday!

Paper Sweeties October Inspiration Challenge #24- 'Happy Fall'

I'm SOO excited to share with you all that I was invited to join the Paper Sweeties DT!!

I had such a blast with this sweet images back in August when I guest designed for them!

So I'm kick starting this FIRST day of October with a Happy Fall Challenge!



I *wish* we had these gorgeous fall colors like these here in AZ! I used the Sweet Scarecrow stamp to create my HAPPY FALL card!

Make it Sparkle!

Back again to share an ADORABLE new digi release over at Tiddly Inks!  This week we're debuting some SUPER cute pups! AND It's also time for the new Tiddly Inks Challenge too: Make it Sparkle!

I chose to combine the new release with the challenge and had so much fun with this Spooky Pup!
Trick or Treat: Tiddly Inks Make it Sparkle

I colored the pup and pumpkins with copics (of course!), masked off my colored image and used some distress inks to create my background. I also added a few drops of pearly water for some more sparkle.  Paired with some glittery paper from my stash and thought that it was just the right amount of sparkle! :)

Hope to see you play along- and don't forget to check out the other cute pup images in this release! Crossing my fingers for some extra time this week to play with them!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy *almost* October!

What's Perking... again!

I'm back again with another card for the Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

I couldn't help but make another card for this awesome blog hop!



I still had the sweet Beanie Ian stamp (available as a digi now) out on my desk and decided to make a boyish version of this card I made a few weeks ago!

What's Perking?s

I made a simple one layer card, colored him in copics, and made a quick swap of his marshmallows for some yummy mocha whipped cream using liquid applique. I wanted to add a bit of dimension so I tried stamping on some wood veneer pieces in my stash!

I'm off to top off my coffee and check out the other fab java-themed cards!

Keep Calm...

and grab your cup of COFFEE- It's time for the Coffee Lovers Bloghop!



You can definitely call me a coffee lover- can't start my day without one!

I made my first card with some bits and parts of a couple Hero Arts stamp sets...
Keep Calm...
and what's a coffee card if it's not on kraft cardstock right?

The inspiration for this card came from a stamp in the Glow Girl set, the original stamp says, "Keep Calm and Glow On" but with some masking changed it with the Need Caffeine set (& used it for the background too!), finally the mug is from What's Perking!

Hope to see some of you play along- there's a list of some fantastic prizes and sponsors- you can find them all on Chaitali's blog!

Be back in a few with my second card!
