Bunny Love

Hi friends!

I'm here today to share my latest challenge card with you. I have decided on only 4 challenges to play along with, mostly they are with blogs I was lucky enough to be a DT member or friend of. Today happens to be a lady I was on another DT with. Sasayki Glitter Digital Stamps can be purchased at Etsy (click here for the adorable images!)

Her blog, Sasayki Glitter Challenge Blog is full of great DT projects and tips for her digital images. Did I tell you already her images are super sweet?!

Okay, so for this monthly challenge, I decided to use this cute digi image!  I used paper from  ...... YES, you guessed it! My scrap basket! It's just there are so many adorable papers in there I can't help myself!! I  created the braided cad spine from a tute I watched on YouTube, VERY easy and super fun.


BTW, the challenge theme is "red" so I used pops of various shades of red throughout my card, I used my Copics to give this little bunny some life. I then added Wink of Stella to all the colored areas. Sooo, the little "white" spots you see in the ink are actually little bits of glitter reflecting my camera flash. Finally, I used creamy colored seam binding to tie a flouncy bow for the top of the card. Another fun challenge and I think I'm getting back into the creative swing of things. And, I promise, this card with this color combo looks so much better in life than it does here as a picture. It's funny, the more I look at it - the more I think it's a color combo mess! Yikes!

Luv Ya' Bunches

I'm such a happy camper ~ I unpacked my Cricut today! I then spent some time downloading a few cut files I needed and a few I didn't. Then I put together a card for a swap I'm in at Splitcoast. I totally CASE'd this card from the lady I purchased the digis from (info below.)



I cut the lattice overlay with my lovie Cricut. The patterned paper underneath is retired SU. The veggie images and sentiment are digital and from MHKDesigns. I added a decorative brad and there you have it! My swap card.

Love on the way ~

This sweet image makes my heart smile. That's why I will be sending the card to my daughter who lives in Virginia. I miss her a great deal. She keeps all the cards I make and send. That makes me happy.


I decided to create this sweet little card for the current Kitty Bee Designs Challenge.  This challenge happens to be a color challenge, very soft pretty colors no less. I created a top fold card and embossed the white base layer. The pattern papers are from a sweet little 6x6 card pack I picked up last year while at Hobby Lobby. The crocheted flowers are retired SU embellishments. I added a glitter covered brad to the center. The image is a Kitty Bee Designs image that I colored with my Copics. I hope Sissy likes her new card. =)

Early Spring or Longer Winter?

Hi everyone!

On Groundhog Day this year, Punxsutawney Phil sadly predicted 6 more weeks of winter weather for the north. But, here in the south (Georgia to be exact) General Beauregard Lee did not see his shadow therefore we are to have an early spring! I love living in Georgia! It does feel and look more like spring as our daffodils (one of my fav flowers) are in full bloom.

I created this cute little guy for just this event. Scribbles Designs is hosting a monthly challenge celebrating Punxsutawney Phil's prediction - Baby it's Cold Outside. I will admit spring here in Georgia can be crazy. In the morning we can have temps as low as the 30's but by afternoon we can be in the 70's! AND if that's not enough, we've had our worst snow storms in the month of March!


So, for my card I embossed the cream card base but I used the debossed side up. The pattern paper is (like almost always) from my large scrap basket. I used a Scribbles Designs image. I inked him up using my Copic markers and I added a bit of bakers twine too. And there he is! Sweet little guy isn't he??

Peeking Bunnies

Hi again!

Yeppie - my 1st challenge in over a year! I've decided to try a new card base, this is a tent window card. I saw the tutorial here at Splitcoast Stampers. I have so much fun trying new to me things! I decided to make a little scene card for spring for my submission at Cut It Up.


All the pattern paper is from my scrap basket. I stamped the SU images and colored them with my Copics. I used my circle dies to cut the window and the frame. I fussy cut the grass and stamped images.

Hello from the land of the lost!

Well hello said the little lost girl.

I had to take some time off to move our home (again) not once, not twice but three times over the past year and sadly we are not done yet. It's icky and I'm not looking forward to our next move ~ BUT ~ this upcoming move will be our final move (come hell or high water!!)

So, I had a blast working as a Design Team Gal for a handful of absolutely wonderful paper crafting companies. And maybe once we are truly settled I may decide to throw my hat back in the ring, but for now I am going to participate in a few special challenges on a regular basis. I've not been able to do much paper crafting at all for the past year and I have really missed it.

I was able to work on my cross stitch and have been working on a zombie and Minecraft wall for my son's bedroom. Truth be told, I love zombies too! Maybe I'll post a pic or two later, but for now I think I'm gonna go to crawl into bed.

Thanks for stopping by!
