Happy Birthday!

Hey ya'll, this is my second post of the day!! Yay!! :) I love it, when I'm on a roll! Okay, so this card is for Stamp It! Cards Birthday Challenge over at the Moxie Fab World! You should play along too! :)

So, here is my card!

For this challenge, stamping is the main technique. I used a couple of different stamps for my little "birthday swirl". And for one of my music notes, I masked it. I was just having fun and playing around to see, what I would come up with...if anything at my eye's, I think it all worked out quite well?!

Thank you for stopping by today and enjoy your day!! Also, don't forget to check out the challenge at Moxie Fab World!! :)

Good food-Good conversation

Hey ya'll, hope your all enjoying your weekend?!! It's beautiful here and I'm lovin' every bit of it!! :) Today, I share a card with you that I made for Cas-ual Fridays Challenge. For this challenge, you had to use two circles.

With that being said, here is my card!

I kept it very simple and used some older stamps that I had lying around. I've actually, never even used the stamps once, until now!! Being summer and all, I kept thinking of all the BBQ-ing, gatherings,etc...Then, I started thinking of the 4th coming up....So, I stuck with using the whole "red, white, & blue" colors. :) *Note: I realize my greeting looks black but I really did use a dark blue ink. :)* I wasn't sure if my card was too simple?...So, I added little silver studs, to the sides of my greeting. Overall, I'm happy with how simple my card is. I think it would work great as invites or even just a 'dinner date' card...anything around that nature. :)

Thank you for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of your weekend!! Also, don't forget to check out Cas-ual Fridays Challenge!! :)

Greetings ya'll!!! Yes, I'm still here and back with a card!!! F.I.N.A.L.L.Y. It has been waaaaaay too long, since my last post (of an actual card)! Hopefully, I'll keep staying on top of seems my "creative" senses have come back to me! :)

The card I share with you today, is just a little something I made up. Most of the time, I try to make make for someone or some kind of contest/etc...but not this one! Just came to me and I went with it. Maybe down the road, I'll find a use for it?!!
Thank you sooooo much for stopping by and enjoy your day!! :) I WILL be back soon!!!

My, oh my...Where has the time gone?!

Greetings ya'll, I hope your all having fun in the sun?!!! With my kids out of school, it's been nothing but go, go, go with me! I've been thinking/doing everything to try and keep them busy! Though, I managed to take a little 'recovery' break this past weekend, only because I had some kind of 'head cold'. Things are looking better now. Though I still have yet, to get any cards made up!!! This is bad...I can't believe, I can't get some 'time' in and let alone, some kind of vision for a card in my head!! Oh, I hope I get out of this rut soon!?!

Yeah so, no card to share today. :( But hey, I'm looking at it like "It's summer break, everybody deserves a little vacation from things....right?!" :) With that being said, I hope you all enjoy your vacations!!! Whether, your actually going somewhere or just staying around home....there's always a way to getaway! :)

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!!! I look forward to being back real soon (fingers crossed)!! ;)

My 100th Post!!!

Hey everyone, hope your all enjoying your day!! :) I can't believe I am on my 100th post!! Wow! That's quite a bit of cards!! So, seeing this post was ACTUALLY gonna be my 100th post, I wanted to make an extra special card for it! :)

Okay, so let me be honest. The card I actually ended up doing, was not even nowhere in my head to do it! I was having a hard time, thinking what to do. I was playing around with a number of things and was gonna do something with 100 in it somehow. Though, nothing was really grabbing me nor working for me. :( Well, with a little more time and playing around....I think I managed to get something great done up! I either failed this card completely, or hit the nail on the head?!! You can be the judge on that! :)

To do my background, I just ripped up some paper and used the ripped pieces as masks. Alternating each piece and color. I used some dye ink pads and some of those cotton pieces, you put on wood block, which has velcro attached to it (you may have no idea what I'm talking about, but I can't think of the name I'm looking to say!). You can probably, even just use a cotton ball or make up pad?! :)

For this card, I added no embellishments. I usually always add a little something! Whether, it be rhinestones, pearls, etc...something! But I truly thought, what I did with the card was enough?...

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!!! :)

Play Date Cafe Challenge!!

Hey ya'll, happy Monday! I just wanted to share a card I made for The Play Date Cafe Challenge! I saw the challenge over the weekend and been thinking, I need to whip something up! The colors for me, were somewhat 'tricky' in, not the typical colors I would normally use together. So, it really did have me thinking for a minute. Hmmm.....

So, here's my card!

I really wasn't sure, if I was going to like my card?...Though, in the end, I think it came out quite cute! :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! And don't forget to check out The Play Date Cafe Challenge, to play along!!
