Thank you , thank you Jessica for passing the purple torch over to me which I will hold proudly for the month of December.

A few more Birthday cards for this year!

enter here !

Okay, so here's a few more birthday cards that I did before year end, and if surprises pop in between then I'll go ahead and make for those unexpected ones.... I did a repeat on TGF stamp (Cheeky Cherry Pie), apparently one cousin hinted that she wanted the same stamp on her card because she saw her cousins card that I made for her.. So again she was inked up with copic sketch markers, stickles, glossy accents, ribbon, papers from DCWV latte stack and sentiment from Hero Arts.

I'm also enter this card in the following challenge:
Craft Challenge - Challenge#128 - Cute!

She also requested for a red strawberry color pie! Yummo or what?

Second card is for another relative whose turning 7 years old in a couple of weeks and for seven years old his very studious he enjoys working with numbers so I did  a card that would focus  on school.  This was a digi image and inked it up with copic, MS markers, I wrote in Happy Birthday Matthew, the sentiment All Star is from Autumn Leaves, pop up dots, spellbinders wonky rectangles and papers from stash.

And my last card is for our SGD who will be turning 3 years old soon, and I used  C.C. Designs (Birthday Gretel) and she was inked up with copic and MS markers, stickles, gems, glossy accents on the balloons, sentiment from Hero Arts and papers from stash.
Now, hopefully I can concentrate on finishing off my Christmas cards...
Until next time, thanks for stopping by and taking a peek~

Happy Birthday Farmer Ryan!

SIGN UP HERE UNTIL 11/15/11 midnight!!!

Here's a birthday card that I  made for our SS whose birthday is coming up this month, I'm trying to get caught up with several birthday cards in between of Holiday cards....For his card I used a digi and I think it symbolizes perfectly for who he is.   It was inked up with MS markers, glossy accents on the buttons of his coveralls, baker's twine, button, computer generated sentiment, Martha Stewart picket fence punch, papers from stash, and spell binders label one.
My next card is a money holder card and this is part of those Sizzix box-carry all that I made here well it's Bethy's birthday party this coming Sunday so I made it to match her party theme....The stamp is from C.C. Designs (Ice Cream Birgitta) inked up with copic sketch markers, sentiment is for IS(Island Scrapbooking) laser cut, spellbinders ovals, papers from stash, glossy accents to give that ice cream a pop effect and Martha Steward border punch.
Entering my card in this challenge:
Birthday Sundae - Challenge #34 - Sponsored by DT Tracey!

Doesn't that look yummy!
And for my last  project I ended up drifting  making 10 more money holder cards for Christmas since I was already in the mood.   These were fast and easy and one way to get rid of those odd scrap sizes too.  I used the clear stamps from Studio G and Imaginisce, inked them up with copic sketch markers, ice stickles, glossy accents, Marvy Uchida oval and scallop punches, papers from stash and Martha Stewart border punches.
A closer up look!

You Make Me Smile!

Anything Goes Card Swap
Closes on Nov. 15th
Click here for deets...

Happy Friday everyone!
Gee, did the week go flying by!!! I made a new card that I tried , it took me at least several attempts before it came out the way I wanted it to be... I changed up the measurements a notch after playing around with some junky papers first.... It was a breeze doing it after three attempts and I think I will make more of them... It's so super easy too... Great for any occasions  and I think I will do some Christmas cards with this style too.  Yes, I will have them posted when I'm done with them.....I ordered some new copic sketch markers and they finally came in yesterday... So I got to change up my hair coloring on both of the cards...And I really think I like this shade alot.   So for my new card it is called the Sliding Window Box Card and I used the TGF (Elena) inked her up with copic markers, paper pieced her cute play outfit, papers from stash, spell binders label one, gems and sentiment from Hero Arts.

And for my last card I also used TGF (I love Stamps) and she was inked up with copic sketch markers, added a swiss button with baker's twine, papers from stash and spell binders oval scallops..

Oops on the lighting of my pics - my battery was running really low when I took them.
Thanks for taking a peek!
Have a great weekend...

Happy Birthday!


Here's two cards that I created this morning, my first card is for a member in my family that will be having her birthday within a week..  As a matter of fact November is one hectic month in our family lots of birthdays coming up... So you might see replicas of the same image but created differently....
What I try to do when I know that I'm going to be working on a particular stamp I will ink up the images all at once and then I'll put them in a file "To Do", then in between of other projects I'll break and pull out my folder and work on coloring up my images..... For me, it saves up a bunch of time I don't have to take them out of their packages and I'll just ink up at least 2 sheets of each and I always have them in my file... It works up perfectly for me!!!
Anywho back to my birthday card, I used TGF (Cheeky Cherry Pie) she was inked up with copic sketch markers, stickles, glossy accents, spellbinders ovals, scallops and banners sentiment from Hero Arts, pop up dots.

Entering this card in the following challenges:
Birthday Sundaes - Challenge #33 Birthday Card
Lollipop Crafts - Challenge #55 - Anything Goes
Pollycraft Monday - Challenge #117 - Anything Goes (Marit)

Doesn't that pie - looks delish!!!!!
My next card is from C.C.Designs - Honey (Teacher) this was a last minute thing I decided to do got inspired by a dear blogger friend in entering a paper piece challenge... So this is what I came up with, she was paper pieced with scraps from stash, colored with copic sketch markers, papers from stash, sentiment from Hero Arts and added a ribbon.
I'm entering her in this challenge:
Pixie Dust Studio Pixie Challenge- Challenge #99 Paper Piecing

Year of the Dragon - 2012

November 15th!

Here's a poster calendar that I did  since early this morning, I went to bed last night and dreamt about how I was going to create this poster calendar.  I wanted something to hang in my craft space  on the wall.  This is a new stamp from Sister Stamps and I really like this image alot.... Because it has the firecrackers this suppose to symbolize chasing all the bad out and bringing in the good.  The images were inked up with copic and memento markers, added gold stickles to add sparkles from the firecrackers, gold paper from S.E.I (moonrise), spellbinders wonky rectangles & ribbon banners, computer generated on 2012, red cherry blossoms from Wild Orchid, leaf from I/S (Island Scrapbooking laser cut), pop up dots, and hot glue... I'm still starring at it and debating on how to add my gold ribbon on the top for hanging yet.....I didn't want to over power this poster.......
Now, my hubby and DD want this same thing to hang on their office wall.  So I will have to work on their request and post those up later when I get them finished.... Right now my mind is over whelmed with tons of projects that I need to finish up.....
Thanks for taking a peek....
Hugs to you all~
