Over at the wonderful Lawnscaping Challenge they are getting all textured up! So I decided to join the fun and use 4 types of texture on my card. First, off the cotton twine is so soft and sweet! Second, the boarder of birds are clear heat embossed for a shiny look. Third, I added Stickles for some spark! Finally, I flocked the little belly of the bird and in some of the spots on the background. I used my new Jenni Bowlin inks, that I got for Christmas. I have been wanting to try them out for a long long time. :-)

I wanted to start a challenge for myself recently. That was to recreate the 25 days of holiday cards series by Kristina Werner. I love all her creations she is so talented. I hope I can make most of them with the supplies I have on hand. I am not entering these in any challenge just for myself to see if I can be dedicated to get them done (and mailed out to my family and friends!) before the 25th! Here is my version of Day 15 in the holiday card series by Kristina Werner.
In my family this is the time of year when all the birthdays start to fall conveniently with holidays! It's tough this time of year...we end up eating A LOT! Birthday, Thanksgiving, Birthday, Birthday, Christmas, New Years, Birthday and Birthday! Whew, it finally ends in February with Valentines Day.
Welcome to the Young Crafters Unite! Masculine Card Blog Hop. I would like to say masculine cards are my specialty. I like to buy any stamp or paper that has cars, motorcycles or scooters on them. I am around guys all the time so most of my cards have to be masculine. We all know how hard it is to find masculine scrapbook items.

A Last Minute Paper Piecing for the Lawnscaping Challenge! I got all crafty tonight!! It looks like a craft war zone hit my office. I can say 1 Christmas card down, who knows how many to go! I am the kind of person that makes 30 individual Christmas cards each year. I can't mass produce them it's not as fun. I only send them to my closest family and friends.

I finally got back into the crafty spirit! I had caught the flu bug that was going around and was out of commission for a week. Also, down here in Florida the car show season has arrived so every weekend I am booked with a show to attend for work.
I absolutely fell in love with Whimsie Doodles Save the Hooters Digital Stamp! I am walking in the American Cancer Society's Walk this Saturday in Orlando. So, in the spirit I just had to create a card with this image and the proceeds of the digital stamp go to Relay for Life.

Over at DeNami Design the challenge is Animals. And since DeNami's animal stamps are super cute I decided to participate! I used the adorable little penguin holding the balloon, except I cut off the balloon. :-) I colored the little penguins with my copics and used a new paper pack I got at CKC Jacksonville, from My Minds Eye, Lime Twist, Fly a Kite Collection.
Check it out!
