Getting Girly

Well, it's pink and sparkly this week for sure!  The challenge at Fab N Funky this week is an easy one - girly!  Don't forget to check out the FnF DT - we have a few new members, so be sure to leave them some love!

I had fun making this card, although I'm not 100% sure I love it yet.  The 2 mice are actually separate images and I'm thinking I should have put them a little closer together.  Oh well, they are cute! 

On a side note, I found I was rather bummed today as one of my co-workers scooped up several of my latest cards.  Have you ever made a card and then not quite wanted to give it up?  Sigh...I know it's silly, but I would've have liked to admire it a bit longer!  However, now I have a few more $$$ in my pocket for more stamps so it all works out!

Challenges:
Sketch - Unscripted Sketches
Girls, Girls - Bunny Zoe's Crafts
Things with wings - Craft Your Passion
Mermaids and Fairies - Always Crafting
Winged Things - Fashionista Challenge
 Happy Birthday - Celebrate the Occasion
Anything Goes - Party Time Tuesdays

Walk the plank!

Oh, I so had to have this stamp when I saw it - despite the fact that neither of my boys likes pirates!  I just love that poor little dog's face!  This is just one of a whole bunch of stamps I got back in May that I still haven't touched yet, so I thought I better get cracking.



Looking around for a sketch and I thought I'd take a second crack at the DT call for Sweet Sunday.  I haven't played as much as I like, but I do love her sketches.  I did shift things about a bit this time, I think it's still recognizable though!

Challenges:
Sketch - Sweet Sunday
Flags/banners - Stampin' Sisters in Christ
Fave embellishment - Let's Ink It Up (Hope this counts, but diecuts!  Seriously, I use them all them time to dress up cards and layouts and the more I use them the less they cost!)
Anything Goes - 2 Sisters
Dies to Die for - Allsorts (MFT flags and tab)
Boy Attitude - Fussy and Fancy

A dragon of a day...

Whew, it's hot here!  Around here, we call this weather stumid - as in 'it's so humid I'm stupid'!  Crafting does tend to take a back seat to trips to the beach (thankfully across the street) and lying in the dark watching re-runs when it's this hot!

I did manage to create this fun card, and I thought this cute Bugaboo dragon was rather apropos for the heatwave.  I used some cheery MME papers, a little bling and some stitching for this colourful card.  Oh, and course the challenge for Fab N Funky this week - Polka Dots!
And just in case you noticed, yes this is a different photo than the one on the FNF blog, I popped this card up on my desk today, and after staring at it for awhile, I realized I'd forgotten the balloon string!  All fixed now...

Challenges:
Sketch - Sweet Sunday (Karen is having a DT call, yea!)
Bright colours - Crafty Sentiments
Things with Wings - Paper Makeup Stamps
Bold and Bright - Stamp and Create

Lazy Sunday...

Good morning all!  Sitting here in the sun on a lovely sunny Sunday morning and wondering if I have the energy to get up and cut the grass.  Nah...
I do have to get moving though, I am doing a card class for a group of moms and kids - so fingers crossed that goes well.  I think it will be fun and I managed to get everything packed last night, now I just have to get myself ready.  Lazy Sunday indeed!


This card I made well over a week ago - I went a bit nutty colouring up my new Newton stamps.  Unfortunately, I haven't done anything since (including FnF this week, sorry about that) so hopefully the mojo will return soon!
Oh, one more thing - 201 followers! Thanks so very much for joining me on my crafty adventure, I do appreciate it!

Sketch - One Crazy Stamper
Ice Cream Colours - Allsorts
Birthday/celebration - Craft Punked
Pearls - Just Add Ink (whoops, read the rules after I entered, just delete mine!)
It's a Girl Thing - Crafty Anne's

Super Dad!

 
Welcome back to another Sunday at Pile It On.  This week, it's all about Dad.  And buttons.  Can't forget about the buttons.  I knew right away when I saw this 'super' image from A Day for Daisies that I wanted to use my Superhero paper from CTMH.  I do wish I had a 'super Dad' stamp, but I think this stamp works pretty good too.

Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch
Card Mad Fairies - Inspiration Photo (red, white and blue)
Fairy Tale Challenge Blog - Boys/men
Glitter Geeks - Super Heros
Polka Doodles - 'Regal' colours
Stampin with the Dragon - Heros
