I purchased the daisy PP to use for a gift back in April. I liked it so much I bought 2 sheets of it. I stamped the sentiment from a SU set with green ink to go with the center of the daisies. The bottom squares are images from another SU set. I stamped with pink ink, and colored them in using the aqua painter and the same ink pad. I also colored the center green with the aqua painter. I used my cricut to cut the "congrats" out of the same PP. Well that is it...very simple! Now...I need to start thinking of wedding invite ideas...she wants me to make them! I am sooooo excited. I have a couple ideas, but need to start putting together a few to show her. Any ideas from you guys are greatly appreciated! I am thinking vellum and ribbon and flourishes. Just gotta put it all together now. As I come up with ideas I will probably be sharing with you, and asking for thoughts. Thanks so much!

We thought the bookworm would be super cute as a bookmark. The image is from High Hopes Stamps. She colored with marker, and we added some crystal effects to the glasses. The flower PP is from TAC, she really wanted purple on the there somewhere (that is her favorite color). We added some purple CS to the top, and a red ribbon. Thanks for checking out her creation. The girls just love playing in my stamproom!
She used this adorable digi image from Whimsie Doodles called Flowers for Leah. She colored with marker, and wanted to add LOTS of glitter...lol. I think she almost used an entire bottle of stickles...ha ha. She also wanted some brads, and wanted it to say USA. Not too bad for a 5 year old! Thanks for looking, and if you get a chance...feel free to leave a comment. My girls pride themselves on getting more comments then mom...lol.
Well, now head on over to the Creative Belli Challenge Blog, and check out what all the other Belli girls came up with. Don't forget to play along with us. We love to see your versions of the sketch and challenge too. Just add a link to your creation to mr. linky on the bottom of Challenge 94 so we can hop over to see what you came up with. Have a great day!

This week's Sweet Stop Sketch also includes a twist...which is to decorate the inside of your card. Well I usually don't do that, but I thought it would be fun to play along with the twist, and here it is.So...just a little info about the card. I used all pinks and cream as my colors for this. I stamped the cow image (from TAC) with pink ink. I used some pink CS scraps and added the cow spots to them (image also from the TAC set). I used a scalloped eyelet punch from SU on a lighter shade of pink. The sentiment is from QKR Stampede. Last I added some pearlized pink and cream brads, and some liquid pearl to the ice cream, bow, and tongue. For the inside, I used some strips of CS that I trimmed off the front pieces, and added a pink ice cream cone from another TAC set.
Well I think I covered it all...lol. Have a great day!

I used this adorable turtle stamp from QKR Stampede called In Love. I colored him with colored pencils, and trimmed him down. I layered him onto some solid green CS, and layered that onto some green and white PP. I added some green twill ribbon, and 3 green flower brads. WOW that is a lot of green...lol. I stamped the sentiment with staz-on ink onto the ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by!!!!

She is using this card for:
Kona Kid Krafter's Challenge #2:July 4th/and or Red White & Blue (the colors and theme)
Little Hands Do Craft Challenge #7 : Bling it Up (she used stickles/glitter)
Children's Challenge Corner #6: Use Flowers on your card (she used a couple silk flowers)
Thanks so much for looking at her card. She loves to know people are seeing her projects that she worked so hard on!
I used this boy fishing image from TAC, and colored it with colored pencils. Like I mentioned before, I am trying NOT to buy stuff, but to use up what I have. So...I used some PP's from my 7 year old stack. I layered the blue onto a white base, and added the green PP to that. The buttons are from "The button tin". If you have never heard the button tin story...long story short, most of the buttons are older than me...lol. I "inherited" these buttons from my mom when she moved a couple years ago. I figured it would be a great way to use them up too. I used a white gel pen to make it look like there is thread on them. There is actually 2 ribbons on this card too. I layered some cream ribbon onto some brown sheer ribbon. Ok, I think that is all the details...lol. I am a little scatterbrained this week.
Oh, one last thing. I am so excited, my oldest DD's card made it into the top 3 over at Kona Kid's Krafters this week! I am so proud of her!!! I can't wait to show her when she gets home from school.

Now head on over to see what SARAH has in store for you. Thanks for stopping by!
I recently learned how to make these folded shirts. I have seen them before, and think they are just adorable. If you wanted to try them I found THIS tutorial by Maria when I did a google search. I used a piece of SU PP that I have had laying around...this works best with double sided PP. I layered the shirt onto some yellow CS, and a green CS base. I used some twill ribbon to make a tie, and added a little yellowish button to the bottom of the shirt. The twill tie reminds me of the ties my brothers used to wear when I was growing up...lol. I stamped the sentiment onto cream CS with Mellow Moss ink. The sentiment is from the QKR Stampede Set called Happy Birthday. It comes with 4 sentiments...happy birthday, happy anniversary, happy mother's day, and happy father's day. Like I said...simple, but cute!

So...the image is from the newly release Sweet 'n Sassy set "So Sweet Cocoa". I stamped and colored him with colored pencils. I layered him onto some striped PP, and layered that onto some polka dotted PP. The blue with the scallop is actually the back of the striped paper. I then added my 3 embellishments...ribbon, stickles, and some blue gems. The sentiment is from QKR Stampede.
That is all for now...be sure to stop back tomorrow...I have a cute simple Father's Day QKR Stampede card to share with you.

Sorry the image is a little dark...I had a hard time getting her to move out of the light while taking this picture. She was just so excited about her card. She used a dark purple for the base...since purple is her favorite color. We used some PP from the DCWV Guy Stack, and layered a white square on top of that. She then used some stickers that I had, and thought would be adorable for a father's day card. I think I got these at a make-and-take party I went to last summer...about time they got used. I let her put the stickers however she wanted. On the bottom we added a white CS rectangle with the Father's Day sentiment from QKR Stampede. She used the little screw stickers to look like they are holding the sentiment in place. And of course she had to add "Turner" the screwdriver (she is a Handy Manny fan too...lol). Last, she wanted to add some BLING...she added some shiny silver brads around the main image square. Mom thought they looked like shiny new nails...lol. Well that is it for this card. They are already looking forward to the next kid's challenges!
She used this adorable digi image from Sweet 'n Sassy called A Donut for Cocoa. She colored it with colored pencils, and cut him out. She layered him onto some flower green PP...which she chose because..."I want daddy to know how much I love him with lots of flowers". She stamped the sentiment on cream CS using the QKR Stampede image which is part of a 4 stamp set called Happy Birthday. Last she added some BLING! She picked some shiny gem heart brads, and some sparkly butterflies. My DH is going to be so proud of his girls' creations!
If you have kids between the ages of 3-17 , have them play along with this challenge blog. There also have Blog Candy!!! What little kid wouldn't like to receive a box of goodies in the mail?!

Isn't this cute!!!!!??? I used my Cricut and deep cutting blade to cut out the apples from chipboard. I then layered red CS over the apple, and green CS over the leaves. For the cover I used some sticker CS letters for "2nd Grade" and hand wrote the teacher's name. I added the date to the leaves/stem. Now...the hand print stickers have a sentimental value in this case. I know they look a little bit too much, but...every year the kids in the class paint their hand prints somewhere on the walls of the classroom. For 20+ years the teacher has been doing this, so I thought it would have a great sentimental meaning. For the inside pages, I will be starting with a class photo and adding some nice poem or something to go with that. Then on each page I will put a photo of one of the children and I have pre-cut lined paper for them to write why they like their teacher or why they like 2nd grade. Here is my daughter's page (I don't want to share any other ones since I don't parent's permission to do it.)I scribbled her name off for the photo...that is what that black is under the photo. Isn't this adorable! I will be going into the classroom, and having the children fill out their little journal boxes. I have asked each parent to send me in a wallet size photo too.
Well I certainly think this will be a great memory item for this amazing teacher. Now I just hope I can keep it a secret from her until the end of the month...lol. Thanks for stopping by!
