Fish Story

I just love this little guy from the TAC Wonder & Joy stamp set.  Well, I love all the stamps in that set.  I cut the fish out on the Cricut to put somewhere else on the card, but then decided it should be the catch of the day.  The cardbase is TAC cardstock, the brown patterned paper is from Hobby Lobby and the blue patterned paper was on the clearance rack at my local scrapbook store.  Stamp was colored in with Copics.

Birthday Mouse

This is a simple card, but I like how it turned out.   The image is a digital stamp from Universe Shatam.  The red cardstock is by TAC, the blue is from Michael's and embossed with the Polka Dots Cuttlebug folder.  Colored the image with Copics.   The set that the sentiment stamp is from was not labeled, so don't know the name of it.   I also stamped the "for you" on the gift tag.

Easter Cards

I set out to make Easter cards to send to Operation Write Home and then realized I missed the deadline.   Oh well.  I have a craft sale coming on April 16th, so they will be displayed for that. 

The image on the first one is from Digi Design House.   Colored it in with Copics, the white cardstock is from Georgia Pacific, and the purple is Bazzill Smoothies.   Used the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug folder.  Sentiment was made on the computer.

The digital image on this card is by Universe Shatam(She is French.)   Also colored in with Copics, the "patterened paper" is a pdf document that my best friend, Christine, created.  (She ROCKS.)   The white cardstock is Georgia Pacific, the brown cardstock is Bazzill Smoothies, and the purple is from Hobby Lobby.   I did stamp "Happy Easter" near the cross, just forgot to take a new picture.

Catch a Bug?

This card is very fitting for me right now.  Felt the cold coming on last week and by Saturday I did not have a voice.   Have my voice back now, although it sounds kind of funny.

Thinking of You

Doesn't this chair look lonely?   This card could work for a Miss You card too.  The image is a digital stamp from The Digi Shack.  I can't find them online right now, otherwise I would have linked them. 

Colored it with Copics.  Inked the edge with Colorbox Chalk ink.  The paper was from the clearance bin at my local scrapbook store.  The brown cardbase is from The Angel Company.   The sentiment was computer generated.

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Years ago I used to work with a girl who was Irish and her whole family always participated in the big St Patrick's Day parade that was held in the Twin Cities.    When she would talk about it, you felt like you had been there with her.   The funny thing is, I don't think her favorite color was green. 

The layout for this card is from StampTV's weekly sketch challenge and the theme of the card is for the TAC "Seeing Shamrocks" blog hop going on now.  Find them here.

The sentiment was created on the computer, the stamp is from a retired set from TAC called All Season Swirls.  The card base is Bazzill Smoothies, the white is Georgia Pacific that I embossed using the Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder, the polka dot paper is from a Designer Collections TAC paper series called Country Cottage (I think retired).   The ink is by CTMH. 

(hmm, the picture looked clearer at home, sorry about that)

Perfect for Spring

As I sit here the temperature is still cold, snow is in the forecast, and I'm wanting to move south.   So this digital stamp of Daffodils is perfect for spring.   The stamp is from Designed2Delight.   The paper is from my scrap pile and the sentiment is from CTMH (retired).  I paper pieced the pot the flowers are in, gives it a nice look.
