PDE Linky Party Challenge Any Animal

Hello everyone,
Today, starts another challenge at PDE Linky Party.
My card today was inspired by a card that I saw on Nichol Majouirk's blog.
I really love her style. Instead of just looking at blogs all day, I should do more of caseing and using ideas that I see because I think that's sort of the point!

Anyway, here is my card for the challenge and I hope that you will all join in the challenge.

I used my hearts cuttlebug folder and cut my sentiment out using my Cricut. I think the Art Philosophy cartridge. The cute hedgehogs were colored in with copics.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Use Pink

HI everyone,
I have two posts today! So be sure to check them both out. This is just a quick post because I wanted to join in the Greeting Farm challenge to use pink. Here is my project:
I used some scrap paper and some roses from my stash. I also used copic markers and did some paper piecing for her outfit. Basketball just ended but we are gearing up for the baseball season and we have a little breather from dance competitions but there is no rest for the weary in this house. Thanks for visiting.

Sprinkles Shaker Card

Hi everyone,
I have a super fabulous shaker card today. Using the Make it Market kit from Paper Trey Ink.
I gave this card to Lily's competition dance "buddy" as a good luck card. Now you can make a shaker card out of almost any die around but these are designed wonderfully.

I also have a video for you all so that you can see it shake in action!

Super Duper

Hi everyone,
My card today can be used for many occasions. I used it as a Valentine's Day card but really it was also a friend card too. I am very lucky to work with some really super fabulous people who are not just co-workers but I consider close friends and so I gave a couple of those friends a special card and a dark chocolate Godiva bar. Yum! This care I just love. It is a case of a card I saw by Nicole Majourik.

The stamps are from Mama Elephant, except for the skyscape which is from Paper Smooches. It's also a shaker card. Be sure to watch the video for the how to and also to see the shaker in action.

Amor Anya

Hi everyone,

I have a card that I created for The Greeting Farm Fresh Friday Challenge. This is my first time joining in this challenge but I just got the new Amor Anya stamp set and wanted to ink it up.
The paper is from Lawn Fawn, trying to use up that paper pad and I am so close! I used my copics to color her in and of course my stickles and some gel pen action on her dress. The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom and the doily was cut from a Spellbinders die. The pink flowers are from Michaels and the white flower is a Prima flower.

I had a super busy weekend. My daughter had a dance competition and my boy had basketball and baseball practice and a basketball game. I was lucky to spend Valentine's Day with the loves of my life, my sweet children. The children went to their father's for President's Day and I got to spend the day crafting. The first time in I can't remember how long so there will be some new projects coming soon and videos too.

Thanks so much for visiting me today.

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!



Challenge #244-Use the color red

Bugaboo Stamps




The prize is 7 digital stamps!

Create a project inspired by RED
 
After I got my digital image, I completely forgot about the challenge to use red so I had to add some red sequins to make sure that I met the challenge, even though there is red also in the patterned paper.
 
 
The sentiment is from My Creative Time. I also used my copics, stickles and Wink of Stella. The paper pad is Doodlebug from last year. I also can't forget my sequins which is a combination of sequins from my stash and from Pretty Pink Posh.
 
I hope that you all have time to join in the challenge.

Hello Friend

Hi everyone,
Today's card is another shaker card. I consider it part of my shaker card series, even though there is no video for it as it was one of the first ones that I made, kind of trying out different methods. I used the exclusive stampember Simon Says Lawn Fawn set and Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

This was another Dance Competition weekend, the last for a little while. Thank goodness I have Monday off for President's Day!

Anyway, on to the card!
Aren't those little birds the cutest? I thought that it would make a cute Valentine for one of my co-workers.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

I also made a video for you, part of my shaker series. Be sure to watch it to see the shake!

CardzTV Challenge "Hearts"

Hi everyone,
 That's right it's time for another CardzTV card challenge. The theme this week is hearts. Be sure to visit Mary's blog to see all of the projects and join in the challenge. You could be the winner of a set of CardzTV stamps.

For my project this week, I decided to try my hand at a shaker card. They are super trendy right now and I can see why as they are fun to make and fun to play with! I used Mary's method of cutting out multiple die cuts and stacking them on top of each other to create enough depth for my sequins. I used a window die from Taylored Expressions. I also used a cute little birdie from Lawn Fawn.
My sentiment is from the CardzTV stamp set Birds and Bees.

I have a super busy weekend planned but I hope to get some crafting in! Thanks for visiting and happy weekend everyone.

PDE Linky Party ~ Kids Challenge~

Hi everyone,
The challenge this time is to use a kid on your card. My cousin's little girl just turned one and so I thought that it was the perfect time to make a card for this challenge. I used the Baby Steps Cricut cartridge and a cute Peachy Keen face. I think that it was from the Garden Faces stamp set. I don't know if you have heard, but Peachy Keen won't be doing stamps anymore which is very sad because I use their face stamps all of the time!

To join the challenge be sure to visit PDE Linky Party.
Here is my project:

I also have a video for you all:




The birthday party was really fun. My cousin's baby was too small to go into the ticket machine at Chuck E. Cheese but my niece who just turned 6 had a birthday a couple of days before and she got to do it instead. It was hilarious and wonderful because she was excited and she actually picked up the special ticket worth a 1000 tickets!
