Sweet Hello

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday! :) I am so glad this week is almost over, it's been a crazy busy one and I need the weekend for some R&R :) Onto my card for today.




My friend Christy (from Tiddly Inks) has created some new paper piecing patterns for My Scrap Chick. They are SO cute, I had to have the all :) My card today uses the super cute Rainy Day Donna pattern. I cut her out using my Silhouette, ran the umbrella through my embossing folder using my Cuttlebug, and then put everything together and did some doodling with my white gel pen. I put my card base and card together and then added a bow, roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, and pearls for some finishing touches. The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day! :)

Witching You a Happy Halloween

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday! :) Hope you are having a wonderful week. I'll keep my chit chat short and get right to my card for today.




Isn't this little with a cutie?!?! I got her from The Digi Bistro (you should definitely check this new store out, she has some super cute svg files. I cut the image out using my Silhouette, ran her dress through my embossing folder in my Cuttlebug, then put everything together and did some doodling with my white gel pen. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from DCWV. I added some pearls, a bow, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches. The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow :)

Candy Corn Kisses

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday! :) Hope you are having a wonderful week. I have another fun Halloween card to share with you today so I'll get right to it.




For my card today I decided to cut out this adorable image from Little Scraps of Heaven (this is this week's freebie so run over there this week and get it for free). I cut the image out using my Silhouette, did some doodling with my white gel pen, and then put everything together. I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is a mixture of K&Co. and MME. The spiderwebs in the corners were done with a Martha Stewart corner punch. I added a bow and rose from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches. The perfect sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day :)

I Woof You

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I have a new card to share with you today. I'm really pleased with how this one came out, I hope you like it :)




For my card today, I decided to cut out this adorable dog house and puppy dog from the Everday Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge. I welded the dog to the dog house in my Gypsy, then copied the design and flipped it and then welded it together to create a shape card. I then cut the dog house out twice (once for the base, once for the roof and door so I could do a different color). Then I cut the dog out, hid his face using the hide contour feature on my Gypsy, then stamped his cute little face using the brand new puppy face stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps. I did lots of doodling with my white gel pen, then put everything together. I added a little bow to the puppy's hair using Baker's Twine and I added a pink rhinestone to the dog's collar. Finally, I stamped my sentiment, which is from Studio G. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you enjoy my card. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow :)

Ghost Brew

Hi eveyone and Happy Monday! :) I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that your week is off to a great start. We had a lovely weekend here. Saturday we went out to a nice lunch and ran some errands and then yesterday, we just relaxed a bit, I did some crafting, hubby watched some football . . . it was a really nice stress free day :) I even finished a book called The Help (a movie just came out based on the book). Wow, what a fabulous book, I LOVED it and I definitely recommend it! Well, enough chit chat and onto the reason you're really here, my card :) I'm still in a Halloween mood so I have another Halloween card to share with you today.




For my card today, I decided to use this adorable ghost and cauldron image from My Scrap Chick (Hocus Pocus collection). I just LOVE this cute little image. I designed my card using my SCAL 3.0 software. I sized everything the way I wanted it, then I cut everything out using my Silhouette. Next I inked around the edges of my pieces, did some doodling with my white and black gel pens, and then put everything together. Next I created my card base using SU cardstock. My DP is actually from the $1 spot at Target. I adhered my image to my card base with dimensionals. I then used an EK Sucess punch for the swirls in the corners, then added pearls, a bow, and a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches. The adorable sentiment is from My Creative Time(All Around Halloween stamp set). How adorable is that sentiment?!?! Emma comes up with the coolest designs! I punched the image out with a SU circle punch and then backed it with a scalloped circle, also from a SU punch. I also did some stiching around the sentiment with my white gel pen. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you enjoyed my card for today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. Have a wondeful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow. Big hugs!

Too Cute to Spook

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday! I hope you all are having a wonderful week! As those of you who have read my blog for some time know, I LOVE Halloween and I love creating Halloween projects. I was able to get into the craft room last night and I have a Halloween car to share with you today :)




For my card today, I decided to cut out this adorable little girl dressed as a kitten from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. The cat is also from that cartridge. I hid the faces and used my Peachy Keen face stamps. I then did some doodling and then put everything together. The pumpkin candy holder is from the Happy Hauntings cartridge. I next created my card base using SU cardstock. My DP is from K&Co. I adhered my images to my card base using dimensionals. For some finishing touches, I added pearls, a ribbon, and a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts. My sentiment is from Studio G (I got it at Wal-Mart). What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you liked my card. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day! :)

For my card today, I decided to cut out this adorable little bear! This SVG pattern is from My Scrap Chick (LOVE their patterns!). I cut the image out using my Silhouette.

I popped her head using dimensionals for some added dimension. Next I created my card base using SU cardstock. My DP is from MME (Stella Rose collection). For some finishing touches, I added pearls, ribbon, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. The cute sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. What do you think?

Totally Nuts for You

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! :) I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that your week is off to a great start. It felt so good to get back into the craft room yesterday. I have a super simple fall card to share with you today so I'll get right to it.




For my card today, I decided to use this adorable little squirrel from the Create a Critter cartridge. The stump and the little acorn are also from Create a Critter. I designed everything in my Gypsy and then cut it out with my Cricut. Next I put everything together and then did some doodling with my white and black gel pens. I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from last year's fall stack from Recollections. I added some red swirls to the corners (punched out using an EK Success punch), red pearls, a bow, and a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts. The super cute sentiment is from Studio G (I found it at Wal-Mart, they have redone their scrapbooking section and have tons of cute stamps for under $1). What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day :)
