Ahoy There!

It's time to share the latest sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Now I'm not gonna lie, I didn't know what I was going to do with this one!! But then my Stampin' Up order arrived and I realized I now had the perfect stamp set!

I used the fun Seaside Shores stamp set and paper from Stampin' Up along with the Whimsical Waves background stamp by My Favorite Things. Love the color combo, perfectly beachy. Now I'm ready for a little rest and relaxation that only the beach can provide!! Please join our fun challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Baby Shower Cards

This week at The Outlawz the CAS team is challenging you to share a "shower" card. I was inspired by the baby shower I was at just a week ago! And of course I had to make a boy and girl version of the same card!! The die set is the Baby Shower Dies by Paper Smooches. The cute little chickie is sparkled up using a wink of stella pen.  

And here is the girl version. Both make use of some scraps...gotta love that! The diaper pin on this one is also glittered up with the wink of stella pen. So fun and quick & easy to make. Now join us this week at The Outlawz for some April showers!!

Hello Friend

Just a quick card to say hello to a friend using Foxy Thang and Woodlands digital paper from Imagine That Digistamp. I have been so busy lately with "family stuff" that the quicker and easier the better when it comes to card design! Now be sure and get inspired by more wonderful creations by the Imagine That Digistamp design team at the Creative Playground

Hello -- well now I have that Adele song stuck in my head!!! It's time to share an "Oldie Bug Goodie" Bugaboo image today and I went with the adorable Sew Sunbonnet - Thimble. This will be perfect for my mother-in-law who is rehabing following a knee replacement and stroke. She is quite the seamstress, and I know a lot of people are missing her and all her alteration skills.

As you may know, Bugaboo has a new shop. Jodie is working non-stop everyday adding image files (over 3500 in total!!). If you don't see an image or did not receive an invite via email to reactivate your account, please send her an email - Meanwhile, take a moment to look thru the store, bet you can find images you never saw before...I know I did!!! Also, be sure and check out what other DT members are creating this week at Catch the Bug.

Missing You

Thursdays over at the Creative Playground mean inspiration from the Imagine That Digistamp design team. Today I created with the recently released set Pierrette. So many wonderful images in both outline and colored (beautifully may I add!). I kept my card very simple, using some digi paper from Beary in Love and linen thread.

Speaking of releases, there's a new one from yesterday called Retro Waitress. IT IS ADORABLE!!! Be sure and check it out. Also don't forget to join our monthly link-up challenge HERE at the Creative Playground. Use an Imagine That Digistamp image and receive the featured set Rainy Day Fun free!!

New Release From Bugaboo

Today is new release day at Bugaboo!! Have you checked out the new store yet? You really should, it's fantastic!! Here is Dino Birthday, perfect for a fun card to celebrate. As soon as I saw him, I knew I had to make him purple. Does anyone else remember Barney the purple dinosaur? My oldest absolutely LOVED him!! Sorry to say but boy was he annoying!! I stamped the sentiment from a Paper Trey Ink stamp set called Keep it Simple: Birthday Mini. Bright colored scraps helped me finish up this project. Be sure and take a look what other DT members created using this image over at Catch the Bug, talk about talent!!
