Another Moxie Fab Challenge!

Congratulations! is what this is all about...there are SO many different events to make a Congrats card for my head was spinning with ideas when I landed on a baby card :) The sentiment I have on this card can work for any event really, I am always on the look out for stamps and sentiments that have multiple uses! Anywho...here is the newest addition to my baby cards!

Very CAS design, used my Slice, Noteworthy and Animal Crackers carts for this. PP is Heidi Grace. Ribbon is Ribbon Boutique and buttons are from my stash!

Have a good one!

Moxie Fab: Glitter is Glam!

So I made a few cards for the Moxie Fab: Glitter is Glam Challenge and it's the first of many I hope! I love the Moxie Fab World and just haven't had the time to get involved more! I always marvel at all that is going on! Anywho...here are 2 cards with a bit of glitz to them!

Oh how I have missed these Doll House Challenges

So I finally had a few minutes in this hectic world to create for FUN....so I did some of my beloved Dollie's Challenges! I felt a bit rusty, but managed to wiggle out dome craftiness...

For the fabulous sketch by Kristy {I am in desperate need of getting photos printed before I can actually scrapbook again, hence the card not a LO}

And for Leahs yummers color challenge I whipped up this, not so fantastic, but I was definitely challenged with it, card...LOL, I so wanted to do a LO but I just have NO PHOTOS...

Make sure you go check out the DELISH DT samples that they have over there for these challenges...share some love!!

I'm a terrible blogger

Ok, I know. I haven't blogged in weeks. I have just been so busy and now I am MOVING...WHOO HOOO...For the zillionth time, the exclamation, acutally ALL the keys in the number line on my keyboard are broken thanks to my darling daughter "cleaning" them with a cup of water. So unless I post from my phone, there will be no exciting exclamation points, just boring old periods LOL.

I promise to blog some scrappy goodness AND PICTURES once I am all settled in at the new apartment.

God is GOOD, let me tell you...we couldn't have done this without His love and encouragement

Dollie's Sketch 6/24

Loved the sketch from last week at the Dollie's! found this picture, after I found the papers I wanted to use for it, and had at it! I really love how it cam out, simple but FUN, bright and cheery, just like Emma! Perfect for the memory!

Have a great day guys!!

Friday, June 25, 2010

Grey and Yellow are not easy...

Color combo over at the Dollie's was a toughy for me! So I racked my brain and after a epic fail the first try I came up with this CAS card...

I didn't have grey ink so I stamped the flower with my black StazOn, then stamped it again without re-inking it. I also didn't have a yellow pearl so I used my Copic to color it. Inked the edge of the grey cardstock and whaa laa...CAS easy!

Design Dollie's Color Challenge!!

The 80's called...

And said that Punky Brewster needed to go home! Hahaha, she was most definitely my inspiration for this card I made for the Some Odd Girl challenge blog! So here is my 80's inspired card (and please give me some credit, I was only around for 3 years of the 80's!)

I used Ellie who is so freaking cute, and added a little tutu! Short post today girls! Hope you like my card!

Saturday, May 15, 2010

Has it been too long?

I'd say! JEESH! What's wrong with me?? I guess I forgot I run a blog, you know along with all these other life things getting in the way like 2 toddlers, a husband who broke his foot, a mild case of mental breakddown....EEEP! Trying to get my grits together!

I am sure I have SOMETHING to share! Although I haven't been to busy crafting, but more designing...with pen and paper that is. Watch out, here I come! With my own line of digi stamps!! YES...it is happening! Am I excited? To say the least!! Thanks to my absolutely most wonderful and amazing crafty friends at SSC and KRISTY from the Oddies and the Dollies, I am finally doing what I feel extremely passionate about! So there's this panic, excitement, terrified, EXTACTIC little girl bouncing around in side me just begging to come out and share with the on-line crafting world. So yes, watch...and wait for it. It is coming...promise:)

NOW, for something FUN...(pshh like all THAT wasn't fun!)

This is one of my favorite images from Some Odd Girls! Got Mae with Bouquet as a freebie last month...definitely need to head over there and check out this months freebie (HELLO??? it's FREE...what are you waiting for??) And their challenges...LOVE them, and the whole blog...just like awesomeness threw up all over them:)

Let's see if I can hustle up some more to share...

This bad boy..or should I say girl...was for a challenge at Simply Scrapping Crafts! May's first Color Combo challenge!! You can STILL play along too, you have the WHOLE entire month!! Superrrrrr fun!

OH and here is the second week Color Challenge for May!

Gorgeous right? I meant the color combo, not my card...I'm not THAT conceded!!

Ok, well I have lots more to share, but plan on actually BLOGGING again in the next day or so, so will share more then!! Love you goosies!! Muah!
