Birthday Card

Hello! Busy week, but I found time to make a card to enter into this week's Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge. This was a tricky color inspiration for me, but I like the end result. The cupcake and sentiment are from the PKS April Stamp of the Month. How cute would the little cupcake be if he were on an action wobble instead? Well that's the prize this week so I'm hoping I can get my hands on some action wobbles... :)

It really does look cuter in person. My camera didn't capture the purple too well! It is not periwinkle, it's purple I promise! Some day I'm going to have to take a camera class or something...
Anyway, thank you so much for stopping by my blog!! :)

Hello Chickadee

I was super excited this week to receive some new goodies in the mail. I got a stamp set from Lawn Fawn finally and some of their Bright Side paper! So I made a card for the Lawnscaping Challenge

Sadly I don't own any embossing folders or supplies for heat embossing so I had to emboss by hand using a bone folder and ruler. I made a criss-cross pattern to represent chicken wire. I then stamped some Critters on the Farm images, colored them with Copics, then pasted that to a piece of Bright Side paper and put it on the card. I really like the effect the embossing gives the card. 

Thank you for stopping by!

Make Every Minute Count!

Time for another challenge at Peachy Keen! The best part- it's an Anything Goes challenge!
I decided to change it up and make something besides a card, so I made a tag instead. I absolutely love the way this turned out, I am going to start making tags more often. I used the PKS April Stamp of the Month. The alarm clock is paper pieced and the clock hands were fastened down with a brad. The cutest thing is that the alarm clock can wiggle around like a real alarm clock does because of the brad! And you can also change the time. I added some black stitching around the edges and then topped it off with some twine. Here are some pictures.

This is how it wiggles.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great day :)

Simple Hi

Hello! I have a simple card to share that I made for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge.
Here is the sketch-

And here is my take on it-

The cute little guy is a digi image from Paper Smooches. I colored him with Copics. I just love the way this turned out! I should do more simple cards like this. :) Speaking of simple, I'm also linking this up to the clean and simple challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

Take Time to Celebrate!

Here is a card I made using the Peachy Keen Challenge Sketch and my PKS April Stamp of the Month. I love this little clock. I colored him with Copics and added some faux stitching. The strip of numbers at the bottom is from the "What Time is It?" background set also from Peachy Keen. The white ink I have is HORRIBLE. Either that or I am stamping it wrong. Any suggestions? Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Mother's Day

The challenge over at Peachy Keen this week got me thinking! I had NO ideas for soup can projects... Until today- I thought of doing a Mother's Day gift! It's filled with starbursts :)
I used my PKS Dolly Dumplins Assortment Pack for the faces. 

Thank you so much for stopping by, your comments make my day!

Wake Up and Smell the Coffee!

Hello bloggers! I have a card to share that I made for the Peachy Keen Challenge! The challenge was to create your own background. I used the April Stamp of the Month Kit. To make the background, I just stamped the "Wake up and smell the coffee!" stamp over and over. I colored the cute little coffee cup with my copics.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I just love reading your comments :)
