Congrats on your boy

365cards The challenge today was to only use 2 colors. I thing my baby blue and brown go well together. Although the pic looks more of a teal for my paper. It is baby blue!

Your so cute together

Guess what? Another card for 365cards. One may never have seen this coming. I am really getting into this card thing, and these challenges. For this card I was worried about the sakura star dust pen not showing up in the kisses very well. My camera picked it up beautifully. A perfect time for this challenge. My youngest brother in law is going to pick out a ring for his girlfriend, or baby's mommy, this weekend. Their son is only 3 weeks old so they have a lot on their plate. They have lived together for a while, so I think I already know the answer.

Eye can see clearly now

At 365 Cards here is the challenge.
Day 87 - The "Eyes" Have it Sounds like a strange challenge, doesn't it? Use the word "eye" somewhere on your card.
I read this and said no way, today is not for me. Then a couple of hours later the card just flew into my head and I got to work on it.

Kindergarten pictures

The link Here. I used this on a collage of my daughters photos that grandpa took to get the lighting right before some seniors were to arrive for there pictures. Needless to say these photos look like Senior Portraits.

Get Well Soon

Here is todays card for 365 cards. Have your primary color purple and use at least 5 circles. I think the circle brads count as my circles, at least I hope.

Good Luck

This card is for 365 cards. I distressed and inked the edges and followed yesterdays formula for the card. The good luck and the white swirly thingy is rub ons.

As if one is not able to tell that I use this mat a lot. LOL. I am hopeful that someone will be able to use this file. Although I personally will be sending it to a friend for one of her daughters.

Happy Day

The challenge over at 365 cards was to create a 3x3 card and use 1 flower, 1 brad, 1 piece of ribbon and 1 stamped sentiment. NO PATTERN PAPER! Here is what I came up with. It is down right simple but follows the rules.

Hang in there

Here is a card that I made, I love it when things just seem to go so right. I have fallen in love with this card. I know it is simple BUT I just love this little monkey. Once again this is a digi stamp from here . Once again I also used the brayering technique from here . I used copics and prismas to color him in and embossed him with a clear embossing powder.

Mothers day

Well this is what my mother-in-law will be getting for mothers day. The card actually says For You. Inside is where it says happy mothers day. Even though the colors do not look like they match, they do. For some reason, lighting, camera, or maybe me, some reason it does not look like it. I used my scrapbooking supply on the picture collage. The picture frame actually says
These grandchildren hold their Grandparents hearts in their little hands.
Now she will have a special frame just for her grandchildren.

Aim High

The Aim High part is actually a total different set, so it can be used with or without the rocket. I personally just glued mine together because I liked it.
Well my schooling is now done for the summer. I decided I needed that much needed break. Oh my do I deserve it. Hopefully now (unless something else happens -- hold breath) I should be able to start doing what I like again.
