Can you believe that I farted around (Ooops, yes, I said farted!) and didnt get Valentines mailed out, in time?! Shame on me, I know!  I have a male friend to whom I ALWAYS send cards on holidays and special occasions - Unfortunately, I missed the boat for Valentine's day this year, so I've made my friend this card, as a belated Valentine's card. I've used this cutie new release image, Bugforfoxsake, from Bugaboo Stamps, The outside sentiment says "For Fox Sake." The inside sentiment, which you cant see, because, oops again, I forgot to take a pic of the inside of the card, before I mailed it yesterday) says "I'm late for Valentine's Day." I've used all papers from my stash, for creating this card.  It's a masculine card, so I've used masculine colors and papers, with no embellishments. My card layout uses the sketch at Sketch Saturday

I love children, so thats one thing that brings me sunshine and smiles, regardless of the weather or the season. So, Im approaching this challenge from this unique angle! My card uses the image, Wee One Fairy - Look Back, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers.  All papers are scraps from my stash. Oh and, Who doesn't love sparkle, right?! Little gemstone footprints and handprints have been used to embellish and add sparkle and shine.  The wings have been given some glittery shine with a Clearstar Gelly Roll Pen. I used pink and white gingham ribbon to add a handmade bow as the finishing touch to this card. The sentiment is punched using circle and scalloped circle punches.

Do You Wanna Build A Snowman



Good Morning! I thought I would show off a different type of craft today - New year, something new, right?  I wanted to show you this adorable little snowman that I made as a Christmas Gift for a co worker.  I actually made several, in different color combinations. This is just one of them. (Silly me forgot to take pics of the others. I am just now getting a chance to post the pic, now that the holidays are over and things have settled down.

This cute little guy is made entirely of different types of socks, with the exception of his face, which is made from buttons. I've also used a cluster of gold glittery balls and greenery, to embellish his hat.  I've named this little fella Herbie.  WHy? I have no idea - He just looks like a Herbie to me. :D

I decided to enter this cutie in some challenges. *DISCLAIMER* I did attempt to look over the challenge rules for each of these blogs.  I entered only in challenges that did NOT specify it had to be a paper craft or use a stamp or markers. I apologize, if I've entered in a challenge that only allows paper crafts. If that is the case, please let me know and I will be sure to mark that on my list of challenges. It is never my intention to enter challenges where the craft type is not accepted.

Bugaboo Birthday Bash



Good Morning Bloggers and Crafters! Today is the start of Bugaboo's Birthday bash at Catch The Bug! Arent you excited?! I know you are - and so am I - But, guess what, there's even more fun to add to it - Because this year, Birthday bash has a theme! Whoo Hoo! Our theme for this year's Birthday Bash is "Under the Sea!" Such an awesome theme! There are prizes to be won, too - LOTS of prizes, if you play along in our daily challenges! Every day this week, there is a different birthday challenge.  Be sure you come and play along with us, for your chances to win!

Today is the first day of our Under The Sea Birthday Bash and we are starting it off with an easy one - Any birthday card, with an Under The Sea theme.

My card, for the Under The Sea Birthday Bash kickoff, is a fun one.  I used a retired mermaid image from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers.  For my card layout, I used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I decided to dig through my stash and found the perfect fishy paper for the Under The Sea theme, don't you think?! I paired the paper from my stash with this new polka dot paper, to create a fun pattern combination. The little pennants were hand cut (I'm getting better at that, I think! LOL!) The sentiment is computer generated. Someone very near and dear to me is battling Colon cancer with metastasis. The awareness ribbon for Colon Cancer is Navy, so I've used lots of Navy in this card, for my friend's birthday, to remind my friend that there is so much left to fight for.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
