Snow Day :)

Today was a snowy, poor driving day. So, my business partner and I decided to reschedule our jobs and take the day off! I have done NOTHING useful all day, so to avoid the kitchen, I decided to get back to stamping. I made a Spring-like little girl's birthday card using my new stamp "Daisy" I bought from Funkykits. She is coloring did not do her justice! I need some better colored markers. It seems I always need something! I used a decorative paper and used pink, yellow and green cardstocks, yellow ribbon, a yellow rhinestone and a pink heart shaped paperclip. I used a tag and stamped the sentiment on white and colored with markers. The corners are punched using a circle punch. This was not a challenge card, but a just for fun. Thanks for stopping by :)

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge

Hello...Here is a birthday card I made yesterday for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. I used the Whimsy Stamps Polar Bear for the image. I used some designer paper in red white and blue paisley and coordinated my cardstock to match. The CB paisley folder and some flowers and jeweled brads perked up the design. I colored the bear with white ice stickles to make him pop. I used red organdy ribbon and a star ribbon folded into a bow. That's all for today!

Stamp Something and PTW Challenges

Hello...two posts in a day! I like to try to combine 2 challenges for an added challenge. Today I did the "Recipe Something" challenge on Stamp Something and I made it using the Papertake Weekly challenge sketch. I used a mocha colored base at 5.5". I then cut 3 strips. One in chocolate brown which I ran through the CB folder "Traffic Jam." The next two strips were a designer paper with a brown brick wall pattern which I cut in different directions. I cut a dark brown piece and a smaller white square which I drew lines in blue and red to resemble an index card. I then stamped that piece with SU So Sweet chocolate chips in SU close to cocoa. I wrote the recipe for Candy Bar Brownies in dark brown pen. I mimicked the look and stamped the sentiment using a mini alphabet set and framed it with a brown sueded frame. For the embellishments, I used a jumbo paper clip and stamped the chocolate saying and punched with the SU tag punch, set a brown eyelet then tied it with hemp twine. I stamped and cut out the chocolate cupcake and decorated it with ice stickles. I think that's all...LOL! Thanks for checking me out :)

Whiff of Joy Sketch Challenge

Hello there! I had a slow work day today so I was able to catch up on paperwork and now I'm just stamping! Here is my submission for the Whiff of Joy Challenge this week. My friend, Denise, sent me some WOJ images to use in challenges. So I colored her with some markers and used gold Stickles on her wings. I used some designer paper from a pack and coordinated the ribbon and cardstocks to match. The sentiment is from the SU Noteworthy set. I finished the card with freehand squiggles, a Prima flower, a button and a few jeweled and button brads. Thanks for looking!
