Oh Hi!

Yep! It's a late night post! I wanted to get a card in for the latest Timeless Twine  Challenge.  I am going to get to the point and show you my card.

I got crafty real quick! I started off with my tag, ripped up some scraps that were laying on my table, colored up this cute cat from Newtons Nook Designs.  Ran some acetate through my Cuttlebug with an cloud embossing folder and made it the front of my card. 

I also hand made the cute little tassel out of twine! 

Happy Scrappin!

You're Great!

Hey-o! Today, I am playing in the CAS-UAL Fridays Challenge 110.  I don't think I have ever participated in a CAS-UAL Fridays challenge before.  I really liked their choice of using a my brain just worked away trying to figure out a cute way to incorporate a number...well my first thought was really cute, but didn't work, my number was to large and my image was too small...yadda...yadda..yadda..  

Any-who, this is what I came up with.....

I thought it was ironic that I used the number eight and octopus have eight legs.  Super cute...huh! Great thinking! I know! haha   My original plan was to have the eight sideways like glasses on the octopus.....but they were to large and octo is too small.  Err..... oh the problems a scrapbooker would say.  :-)

A Double Dose!

Hello Crafty friends!  What's a better way to start of the week than an double dose of challenges? Unskripted Sketches and Dynamic Duos,  and New Challenges to me at that!  I was able to get scrappy this weekend with my bestie Sam.....a bonus it was her birthday! She got my package while we were Skype scrapping and it was awesome to see her open it up LIVE.  With all that inspiration flowing I was able to create this card.  


I hope you enjoyed my card for today. Simple and elegant and perfect for a new couple to be!

Happy Birthday M'erica!!!

Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope you eat many hamburgers and hotdogs and blow stuff up! :-)  We're not big on going to see firework displays, so we stay inside, mosquito free! Some crazy person in the neighborhood will have the huge fireworks that we should be able to see. 

Any-who, I really made this card for my friend, her birthday is this weekend and I realized that the stamp I got at Stampfest Orlando was PERFECT! So, I decided to play along with the Retro Sketches #70.



I just couldn't resist this dino stamp. They are ridiculously cute!  Happy Birthday America!!! I hope you all have a safe and happy 4th.

Need a Little Saving?....I do!

Today, has been a very rough day on our household. One of our fur babies crossed the rainbow bridge. It is very hard for us since he was like our child.   Last night was the last night I had to craft with this card I made is purrfect for today and

I only own two sets that have anything to do with Ocean from Paper Smooches.   I stared at my sets and  "wham" the idea popped into my head.  What if I can get the Life Saver around the cute little turtles neck?  That would be amazing! I know, your thinking it too!



I hope you enjoyed my card today.
