Cute girl with flower pot

Yes that is a very strange title for a blog post, but I couldn't think of anything else.  lol    I love this stamp set from The Angel Company.   It is called Wonder and Joy.   You can find it here.  The patterned paper was "borrowed" from my mom's paper stash, so don't know the name of it.   The teal cardstock is Bazzill, the orange is from Hobby Lobby and the blue scallop circle came out of my friend's scrap pile!!   I colored in the image with copics and pop dotted the legs of the girl.   I realized after I attached everything that ribbon would have been great on this card, oh well.

Any Hero Card

I love rubber duckies and had fun paper piecing this cute little guy.   The duck is a digital stamp from a company that unfortunately is not in business anymore.  The camo is paper that I added and I colored in the hat with CTMH markers.  The cardstock is by CTMH.  The stars were cut on the Cricut and the sentiment was created on the computer.

Flowers and Frogs

This image on this card was so cute, I decided not to give it a sentiment.    The digital stamp image is from Designed2Delight.   I used their "white fill" PNG file format and placed it over digital patterned paper (that I got free online, but can't remember where) and printed on my printer.   The papers used on the card are from Bazzill.   Colored the image with Copics.  
(Sorry, picture quality is not good, something is wrong with my camera.)

Thinking of You

Got the idea for this card from my friend Melissa.   It was fun to make but since I usually make 6 of each card, by the 4th card, I was getting tired of these little squares.  lol   The card that Melissa sent me had the edges of the little squares inked which looked really nice, but I knew I wouldn't have the patience to do that on all 6 cards. 

The patterned paper is a retired set from Close to My Heart, the purple cardstock is also retired CTMH, the sentiment is CTMH, and the ivory brad is from my local scrapbook store.

Ladybug friends

I love this image from Designed2Delight, the ladybugs are so cute.   This was part of their weekly challenge, if you play along you can get a free digital stamp.   Find them here.

This digital stamp was one of their new white filled .PNG files.  It is great for merging with digital paper.  Check out their blog post here that explains it. 

The cardbase is Bazzill, the white is Georgia Pacific, the red and yellow cardstock is scraps from Hobby Lobby.   The "patterened paper" is digital paper from Free Digital Scrapbooking
I inserted the digital stamp over top the digital paper in Word, made the size I needed and then printed.   Cut the shapes out with the Cuttlebug and Nestibilities set Labels Three.  Ribbon is from Michaels.   Stamp is by Close to My Heart.  Colored image with Copics.

Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you Kari for the award.   You need to check out her blog, she has great style!!

Now I guess I am suppose to tell 7 things about me.  Hmm. . . .

1)  I still have my teddy bear from when I was 2 years old.

2)  My brother's birthday is 04/30/70 and mine is 04/03/73.   (do you think my mom planned it that way.  lol)

3)  My boss is 9 years younger then me. 

4)  I have never watched Titanic.

5)  Told my mom I was going to see Fried Green Tomatoes at the theatre but saw Dirty Dancing instead. 

6)  When I was a kid, my horse stepped on my foot and broke my little toe. 

7)  I'm a very neat crafter, when I'm done with a tool or stamp set, I put it back right away.  I can't have a mess around me when I work.   (I'm strange, I know.  lol)

Now I get to pass on this great honor.   Here is my list:

Christine - Christine's Creative Therapy
Pam - Airborne Wife Stamping
Laurie - Soap Box Creations

Have a great day and wondering holiday weekend.   HE HAS RISEN!!!!

Pinwheel Birthday

I saw the tutorial for this card on the Stars and Stamps blog of OWH.   Find them here.   This card is fun to do, but what was hard for me was finding the right paper for the pinwheel.   Both green cardstocks are from Bazzill Smoothies, the paper was from a paper pack by Die Cuts With a View.  And the white is Georgia Pacific.  The sentiment is a stamp by CTMH.   Don't tell Christine, but this is the card I'm going to bring for our next card swap!!

A Boy and his Bear

Okay, this isn't crafting related, other than I plan to scrapbook these pictures, but this kid is too cute not to share!!! 

This is my 3 year old nephew, Noah and his beloved friend, Pooh.   These pictures were taken Saturday morning, April 16th.   For some people getting 3 inches of snow in mid April is not unusual, but for extreme Southeast Minnesota, it is very strange.   Enjoy!!

Wedding Cards

I have a craft sale coming up on Saturday so had to restock some of my card supplies.  Wedding cards was one I was low on.   I find them hard to make, since wedding colors vary so much, I struggle with making neutral colored cards look nice.   The first card is based on a card I made at a card swap.   I discovered after making these cards that those decorative scissors are nice, but boy do I wish I had an edge punch.  

Black cardbase is TAC, the gray is from the scrapbox, and the white is Georgia Pacific.  The stamp is was not marked with a company name. 

Navy cardstock is TAC, the white is Georgia Pacific, and the patterned paper is from Michael's.  The stamp is by CTMH.

Mice Day

If you didn't know, I like mice.  Not the real ones that can run through your house, but the cute ones like in this digital stamp by Designed2Delight.   The blue cardstock is from Stampin' Up, the green is from Bazzill Smoothie.  The white is Georgia Pacific.   Used the Cuttlebug folder, Polka Dots.   Copics colored the image.

Birthday Butterfly

My wonderful best friend, Christine, made an awesome butterfly card (seen here) using a digital stamp by Digi Design House.   And I had to copy it.    I used a digital stamp from Tiffany Doodles, and made mine a birthday card. 

The cardbase is Bazzill Smoothie, the blue patterned paper that is used as matting is from Making Memories, and the white cardstock is Georgia Pacific.   The white ribbon is from Michael's and the brads are from a long time ago, so can't remember where I got them.   The sentiment was computer generated, printed at the same time I printed the digital stamp.  Colored in with Copics.
