Happy Birthday Nautical Style by Guest Designer Lori Hamilton

Hello! It's been a long time since I have posted anything... Some stuff going on that has kept me away for a bit. I hope to be posting a creation soon of my own but until then....I am so happy to have Designer Lori Hamilton in the spotlight today with this GREAT card she made using a Nautical Theme....I just LOVE how she stamped the image twice so she could cut out and pop up the red sails on the boat!  Her clouds are so wonderful and the textured paper give it such a nice contrast....I also love her choice of jute the red and white are perfect for this style card....and on the upper right corner the two red banners make this card full of great nautical details all over!  Thank you Lori for being our Guest Designer and sharing your wonderful creations with us....

Thinking of You Maribelle...


Hi!  Hope everyone is doing great!  So glad that its the time for flowers and spring colors!  I found this coloring page online and thought it would make a pretty image for a Birthday card I needed for a very sweet friend of mine Maribelle!  Happy Birthday Maribelle I hope you had a wonderful day!...I cut out and popped up one of the flowers for some dimension and used a couple of different fonts I found in my word program to make the sentiment right under the image...Three dots of bling were added for fun and a sheer white ribbon...I used the swiss dots folder for the pink strip behind the matted image...I hope you are having a wonderful spring so far!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Rock Star...

Hi!  I am so glad you stopped by today...I wanted to share a card I made using one of Birdie Browns Digis...I am so glad I found her before she closed shop for her adorable images...On this card I did some serious fussy cutting, which I love to do but is sometimes time consuming...I popped him up for dimension and added some red glitter for sparkle on his guitar...I LOVE using the red glitter glue!  Its so sparkly!  I did find that it easier to use a toothpick to get into tiny spaces more so then the glue top...Some punched out music notes were added for fun...Thank you so much for coming by today...Have a great weekend!

Valentines Day Snoopy Style...

Happy Valentines Day!  I have had so much fun making Valentines cards this year.  On the card I am sharing today I used a Snoopy image I found online that I saved long ago and finally got around to use it.  I am loving the red glitter I have been using by Studio G.  This was another card for the SCS challenge to use red.  I did a clean and simple style so I left a lot of white open space around Snoopy.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day!
Supplies: Snoopy image, Paper by SU, Red Glitter and Pop Dots

Sending my love...

Hi!  Today I am sharing a CAS style card I made for the challenge over at SCS to use "Red"  I made an small envelope then punched out a heart and put a bunch of red glitter for sparkle, tucked it inside the envelope and printed out the sentiment in a Segoe Script...If you get a chance stop by SCS and get in on the challenge!  Its a great one to get you started on that special Valentine card before Friday gets here!  Have a great day! Thanks so much for stopping by....

Happy Valentines Day!

Well almost....I wanted to share with you a card I made using another adorable image from Whimsie Doodles...If you havent ever been over to their site you need to go check it out! They have lots of cute digi images which is fast becoming one of my favorite ways to make cards...You can size them anyway you want and they dont take up space like standard stamps do and you dont have to use ink pads so you get a nice crisp image everytime!  On this card I cut and popped up the I Love You she is holding and added some red glitter which is something I dont usually do but LOVE the way it looks so will be using alot more of it!  Scalloped scissors were used to make the border on the matted image...I want to give a shout our to a SWEET lady I know and tell her I am blessed to have met her...She made my week by casing a card of mine and saying kind words on her blog...Her card is adorable!!!  Go by and check her out over at The New and Improved Nutty Cardmaker...She is an angel....Hugs to you Peggy!!
