SNSSDC - Dessert Anyone???

Hello there. Today we have a new challenge for you over at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge. Our challenge this time around is Desserts. Grab a digi with a dessert theme, and show us what you made. Here is my dessert creation... Sorry the photo is so dark. I tried to lighten it up, and it got all discolored. I started my new job a few weeks ago (it is just a temporary one, but it is something for now), and been working everyday. That is a little different for someone who hasn't worked outside the home for almost 5 years now. Plus, I am running our school auction that is only 16 days away!!!!! PANIC MODE has totally set it. So needless to say, I didn't get to work until late into that evening last night, and the lighting was terrible by the time I got to the camera. So...anyway. FOr my card, I used the Cocoa's Sundae digi from SNSS. I colored with colored pencils and gamsol, and layered onto some cherry PP from the Target $1 spot. The sentiment is cut out from one of the other papers in the same paper set. I added some stickles to the cherry so it was sparkly like the ones on the PP.
Well that is all...I am off to work very soon, then spending my entire weekend working on auction stuff. be sure to head on over to the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi challenge blog and see what the rest of the DT ladies have created. Also check and see if you are the lucky winner from last week's blog hop!

Ok...this is only the 2nd time I have made and easel card, and I really like them. They really are very easy to do, and look soooo cute! What a great card idea for someone that you know will display the card on their desk or table or mantel. For my card I started with the little coffee and donut image from the You & Me digi set. That is right...SET of get a whole bunch of these adorable little images including sentiments...and the best buy them now, you use them NOW! Well, after getting my image colored, I couldn't find the right PP to use with my card. SOOOO....I made my own! I simply copied and pasted the digi image and printed on some pink CS. I love the way it turned out. I layered my homemade PP onto the card base. Next i added the colored image and the sentiment. The sentiment is also from one of the new digi release sets called True Friends. This is a complete set of great friendship sentiments. I know you will see some of them featured on some of the other cards in our hop today.

Balloon Hearts

I thought I would share a cute kitty card with you today using the Balloon Kitty Stamp from Eureka Stamps. This super cute image is available in 2 sizes as well as digi format! I used the larger one, stamped it off and colored with watercolor crayons. I trimmed it down, and layered onto some PPs from Echo Park. I added some purple ribbon, and a sticker for the sentiment.

Well that is all for now...have a fantastic Monday!

Happy Birthday Balloons

HI there! I hope you are having a wonderful Monday. Today I wanted to share a very CAS card I made for using the Balloons stamp from Biblical Impressions. Since we celebrated my middle DD's birthday yesterday, I thought it would be fun to make a birthday card. I stamped the image and colored with watercolor crayons. I used my CM cutting system to cut the oval. I also cut and oval from the purple PP from Echo Park. I layered onto a purple CS base, and used the Happy Birthday stamp from BI along the bottom.

Like I said...very CAS, but I thought it was cute for a kids party card.

Thanks for stopping by!

SNSSDC - Monochromatic

Hi we have a new challenge for you at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge. Our challenge this time is Monochromatic. So...with Valentine's day coming up, I decided to go with pink/red as my color. Here is my card. I decided to start with the adorable Cupid Rhubarb Digi. I colored him with colored pencils and gamsol, then I added some glitter to his wings and the "feathers" of the arrows. The PPs I used are all from a stack I "borrowed" from my I loved the papers and kinda "borrowed" them from her. I added some little heart brads to the corners of the card too.

Now head on over to the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Blog and see what the rest of the DT gals have created for your inspiration. Then play along!

Biblical Impressions Winter Blog Hop

Hi there...welcome to the Biblical Impressions Winter themed blog hop. If you arrived here from Sarah's Blog, then you are on the right path...if not then head on back to the main Biblical Impressions Blog and start the hop from the top! Our theme this month is winter...not that we have had much of it here in WNY. We usually have at least a foot of snow on the ground by now, and well...I see my grass right now. My daughters are so upset...since they love to ski. Well here is the card I came up with for the hop. I started with the Patchwork Glove Stamp from Biblical Impressions. I stamped it off and colored with watercolor crayons. Next, I layered onto some PP from Echo Park. I added some ribbon, and some little gems to the corners. I wanted to go "winter" without the holiday reds and I went with the mint color for my card.

Well that is all from me, head on off to your next stop on the hop...

Eureka Stamps - Valentines/Love Blog Hop

Hi there and welcome to the Eureka Stamps Valentine's day/ Love themed blog hop! If you just arrived here from Ceal's Blog, then you are on the right path. If not, then head back to the Main Eureka/QKR Stampede Blog and start from the top. Here is what I came up with for this "love"ly themed hop. Isn't this dragon so cute????!!! I think he is adorable. This guy is called Sm. Hearty Dragon. He is also available in a larger version, or a digi. I stamped this guy off, and colored with watercolor crayons. Now most dragons are green, but I really liked the idea of a pink and brown theme for this card. So I went with pinks and reds, and a brown body. I layered him onto some PP from SEI, and then stamped the Happy Valentine's Day stamp on the bottom. Last I added some little pink gems to the corners of the dragon image.

Now I must send you on to your next stop on this hop...

Thanks for joining us!

A Recipe - SNSS Digi Style

Hello...Happy 2012! I guess I have been slightly MIA over the past month. First off, I have been having something "issues" with my seems to have fallen off the face of the Earth to begin with. Also, been a lot of stuff going on around our house. Of course like everyone, the holidays are just crazy in general, then add on some other life stresses happening, and you have no creativity from Anyway, I am really trying to refocus and get back into my stamping, mostly because it really calms me down. So today I wanted to share the card I made for this weeks Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge. Our challenge this time around is a recipe challenge. Ok, so I have to admit the first time I saw a challenge blog post a "recipe" challenge, I thought I had to cook...and I wasn't sure how that related to But thankfully I now know what it means. So here is our recipe challenge for you...

1 - number element

2 - embossing

3- colors of your choice.

Now here is my take on this "cooking" challenge.Sorry the photo isn't the greatest. It took my until the sun was down to get this card As a result the stickers I used show more then they do in real life too. Anyway...I used 1 - number on the adorable Cheerleader Cookie digi. 2- I used 2 pieces of embossed pink is hard to see from the photo, but the base CS is embossed as well as the small pink rectangle behind Cookie. 3 - Three colors - pink, green, white!

Well that is all for now...head on over to the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the DT gals have created. Then play along...or should I say "cook"
