And it's already Friday

Man, these days are flying by way too fast.....

The good thing though is it's Bellarific Friday! This week the challenge was a's what I came up with!

I used some new rubbah for this one, Alice, another great creation of Christy Croll's for Stamping Bella. She was stamped onto Choice Buttercream paper, then coloured with copics. I did paper piece the enormous mug! I would definitely LOVE a mug that big in my house, with my name on it so no one else would use it!

The papers for the card are from my June Key Ingredients kit, by Taylored Expressions. To finish off the card I did a little stitching with my sewing machine.

There you have it! Thanks for stopping by!

Forget About the Cake...

go for the icing!

Doesn't that just about sum it up for most cakes out there?? I think it does for this one too!

I absolutely LOVE the sentiments that come with these Birthday Bunnies from The Cat's Pajamas. I had intended on doing the TCP Tuesday challenge from yesterday, but came across one I had missed from a few weeks ago, and decided to start there! This is from TCP Tuesday #131, which was to use pink embellishments. The sketch for this card is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #90.

I stamped the birthday bunny on Choice Buttercream with Memento Tuxedo Black, and coloured him with my copics. I used Espresso Dimensional Pearls for the icing on the cake, and added some Golden Rod Stickles around the candles. The embellishments are the pink and green buttons, that I tied with Scrapper's Floss.

It appears as though this post will be cut short due to the waking of my little least I got the basics typed in!

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your day!

It's Davey!!

Another post for today!

In reality....the other post was supposed to be yesterday...but I never seem to get this blogging thing organized! So today it's a double!

This is Davey, one of Lori Boyd's adorable Puddle Jumpers. They are available from Die Cuts R Us.

The sketch for this card is the Mojo Monday Sketch #161. I can see myself using this sketch again!

Davey was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream, and coloured with copics. He was cut out with Circle nestabilities. The cardstock, ribbons and buttons are all from the Taylored Expressions October Key Ingredients kit. The colours in this kit were perfect for the Claudia & Company Challenge #5!

Wedding Bells are Ringing...

This past weekend we attended a friend's wedding. A few of the cards you may have seen up here last week were Thank You cards I had made for them as a wedding gift. Keeping with the theme of their wedding, and their gift I created this:

This card is so very simple, but I absolutely LOVE how it turned out. The image is one I purchased from I printed it onto Choice Buttercream paper, and cut it out with my Circle Nesties.

The paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Mr. Campy line, and to finish it off, I used some Chocolate Chip saddle stitched ribbon, and some machine sewing.

It's a Blast from the Past!

I can't believe another month has's already time for another Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop. This month, Taylor has challenged us to create a Christmas card. I don't have any of the previously released Christmas sets, but I thought that I might be able to create one with Beary Special!

This is what I came up with. I had planned on using Sankari's amazing sketch, but ended up moving panels around to make things fit.

I stamped the bear and presents onto Choice Snow White, then coloured it in with my copics. Then I paper pieced his feet, ears, and a patch on his belly.

I machine stitched the layers on, added the ribbon, then the sentiment! It all fell together nicely!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I can't wait to check out all the fabulous creations everyone has! The full list of hoppers is at the end of this post!

Thank You..

Happy Thursday! Man, this week has flown by! Maybe because it has been so busy!

I have a friend getting married in a few weeks, and as a wedding gift to them, I am making their Thank You cards. I am nearly finished...hoping that will be tonight!

This card was inspired by Taylor's TESC #131. Taylor was so right, this is a GREAT sketch, and I can see myself using this many more times!.

The image is an iStock photo I purchased, then resized and printed onto Choice Buttercream. The DP is Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy. The 'thank you' is from the Thankful Accents set by Verve, one of my most favourite Thank You sets!

Enjoy the rest of your day! Thanks for stopping by!

Think Pink!

Good Monday Morning! Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadian bloggers!

It's the TCP Think Pink Customer Blog Hop, and since I am the proud owner of my first TCP stamps, I thought it was more than fitting that I participate!

For my card, I used Birthday Bunny. I totally fell in love with these adorable bunnies....they got me hooked! I stamped BB onto Whisper White CS, and coloured it in with my copics. I paired my pink paper with some Making Memories Black & White, following the TCP Tuesday 129 sketch for inspiration.

This is likely one of my favourite cards I have created...I was so happy with how it turned out!

Hope you all enjoy a great day today! Thanks for stopping by!

It's Friday Already?

This week has just flown by! Luckily, we are in for some Indian Summer weather this weekend, and Thanksgiving, so it is bound to be great! I also just noticed that my card from the Claudia & Company September Challenge was chosen as the winner! YAY!!

I created these cards because my baby stash was pretty much depleted! And I just got these two Puddle Jumpers from Die Cuts R Us, so it was time they got inked up!

I stamped Baby Jackson, and Baby Clairabeth onto Choice Snow White and coloured them in with my copics.

I used my September Key Ingredients Kit from Taylored Expressions for all the papers, and some hemp twine from my stash. The sentiment was stamped then cut out with Nestabilities and sponged some Antique Linen around the edges.

That's it for today...DD should be getting off the school bus shortly!

Enjoy your day!

Wednesday, October 6, 2010 style!

This week, the challenge for Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge was to incorporate your favourite Christmas movie into the card.

This Santa, who is from Bugaboo stamps, reminds me of the cartoon Santa at the opening and ending credits of my ALL TIME favourite Christmas movie, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation!

I printed Bobblehead Santa out onto Very Vanilla CS and coloured him in with my copics. The colours for this card are inspired by Stacey's Curtain Call Colour Challenge #49 - Real Red, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Basic Black.

I ran my Soft Suede panel through my Swirls Cuttlebug folder, then added some red ribbon to finish it off!

Back In Gear...

well hopefully anyways! I have had great intentions of getting some cards made and posted, but it just hasn't happened! Maybe this week I can turn things around.

This is my very first card made using stamps from My Favorite Things....why have I waited so long! This is an A la Mode, Time to Celebrate. I just LOVE them!

The colour inspiration for this card is from the MFT Guest DT challenge on SCS, to use Rasperry, Lime Green, Aqua and a touch of Yellow. The Cosmo Cricket DeLovely paper works so perfectly with these colours, it was meant to be! The sketch is Jen del Muro's latest Sketch for You to Try!

I stamped this sweetheart with Memento Tuxedo Black, and coloured her in with my copics. I paper pieced the cake, and used Espresso Dimensional Pearls for the icing. I used the new Borderlicious set from Taylored Expressions for the faux stitching, and finished off the card with a button and some ribbon from my stash!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
