Stamp Something for...

Hi Everyone! Happy Friday!  Our challenge at Stamp Something this week is Cute and Fuzzy!  The sponsor for this sweet challenge is Ildi Co.  These wonderful sponsors gave us some images to work with so I chose Cuddle Kuma with Present.  I colored him with water color pencils and a white gel pen for highlights.  I cut out the gift and had him checking out the flowers instead :)  I followed the sketch from Truly Scrumptious, but flipped some stuff around.  The flowers are Primas with punched centers, spacers and jeweled brads.  The sentiment is from the dollar bin at Michaels and stuck to a scalloped circle enhanced with some faux stitching.

This card fits the following challenges: Simon Says-All that sparkles, Ildi Co's-In stitches, Daring Cardmakers-Getting Punchy with it, Allsorts-Furry friends, Crazy 4 Challenges-It's all Geometric

This card is made for a special little girl here in my home state of NH.  Jaimie Cates was a victim of a horrific crime in her home.  As a result of this crime, her mother, Kimberly,  was tragically and brutally taken from her.  All of us at Stamp Something, headed up by Denise and Erin, would like to help this family any way we can.  So Erin and Denise (with help from others!) developed a blog to spread the love to Jaimie and in her honor.  Please visit the blog listed below to learn more about her story and how you can help bring joy back to a very strong and brave girl.  Please think of her and keep her in your prayers.  Thanks for stopping by today.  And please check out the rest of the DT projects as well as the Stamp Something for Jaimie.

Whimsy Monday!

Hello and Happy Monday!  I don't know about you, but it was a long weekend and I'm exhausted!  Today is a new challenge at Whimsy and we have a sketch for you!  I chose one of the newest images from the Whimsy Kids collection! Soccer Connor is colored with watercolor pencils.  I went with orange and white for the color scheme because I just love when boys wear orange.  Not sure why...but it's a great boy color!  The sentiment is a sticker from a set I got in a grab bag from The Rusty Pickle.  I am sending this to my nephew that ***fingers crossed!!!*** will find out today that he BEAT his anaphylactic allergy to peanuts!!!! My poor nephew and nieces all have severe food allergies, but Kam looks like he's outgrown it! It's such exciting news for our family :) 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Please see the rest of the DT blogs for more inspiration!  Have a great day!

This card fits these challenges:
Creative Card Crew:  Babies and children

More Halloween!

Hi All!  Today I am posting a Halloween card to send out tomorrow to my friend's son.  He's six, so I wanted it to be fun and spooky!  I used this adorable Dustin Pike image and colored it some fun colors.  I've been dying to try out this technique on a card, and this was my chance!  The technique is "Felted Cardstock."  I found these cute napkins at Joann's and followed the instructions I got from Split Coast.  I LOVE it!  I will be buying out napkins everywhere!  So fun!  I embossed the orange strip with CB Skeleton Scroll.  The sentiment is from a set.  Inside is decorated too...I wanted to add the candy corn border somewhere, but didn't want to cover my skeletons :)  So that's that!  Hope you like...but I hope the recipient likes it best :)  Happy Stamping!  Be back tomorrow with a Whimsy Card!
