Don't worry ,Be happy ! !

Baaaahaaaa...doesn't this guy just crack you up! I just love it.There's alot of sentiments that can work for this fella.
I wanted bright and fun and I think I accomplished that using BoBunny's Peacock paper.I wanted his eyes to be really buggy so I added a couple of layers of glossy accents.here's a close up...

The picture isn't the greatest ,I wish I had done a side shot,cause he's really BUGGY!LOL.Not to mention the circles are 3D' as well.

Mojo Monday # 145

It's Mojo Monday and HOLY COW I've got it done on Monday!!!It took me foreeever trying to get the colors right ,but by golly it's done.Here's the sketch...

As you can see I chose to go SQUARE..the circle thing was NOT happening for me.I'm so glad that people cannot hear me when I'm working on my cards.lol.My kids although can..It's not pretty.

As you can see I continued using my CosmoCricket Paper for this card.This adorable little dragon is from High Hopes by Dustin Pike.Makes ya wanna throw a steak in the grill eh?
the sentiments is from Hampton Art Set BBQ.It's perfect.I plan to use that set again  in the future..heehee.
Here's the inside..

Simple Pleasures

I couldn't help myself,I had to buy this cutie!She is a MoManning.I combined her up with CosmoCricket.My household is full of kitties at the moment and she reminded me of my daughter playing with our very unamused cats! I attempted to add some stripes to the kitty,they are subtle but there.

Well I thought I would finally participate in a challenge.I'm gonna certainly try and participate in many more as well.I really liked this sketch from Friday Sketchers.It's not exact but I think it works.So here is my take on the sketch......

I used a new image from High Hopes by Dustin Pike.I couldn't help but giggle.
The PP is from SEI's Jocelyn.Of course some Prima flowers.I used Basic Grey brads for the centers.The ribbon,ooh that fab ribbon..is from Webster's Pages.
Here's a close up...

Ok this picture frame took me forever to make.I fiddled and faddled with it.Ok I don't know if faddle is actually a word or if it is ,if it's actually has the right meaning.I made this for my mom.I hope she likes.Let's see what the recipe is for this puppy..hmmm...I used alot of products.
Pattern Paper- Prima, Ribbon- American Crafts, Pearls- Prima, Flowers- Prima/Wild Orchid Crafts,Butterfly,Bird &,Heart- MayaRoad, Fence- Quickutz, Stamped Sentiment- Cornish Heritage Farms, Felt Stem- Prima, Key & Distress Ink- T!m Holtz , Glimmer Mist and Stickles, Frame- Creative Imaginations.

Wheew!!That was alot of product...Enjoy.I took a few close up and views for ya!!

Congratultions Grad

I made this quick card for my nephew (as you can tell) who graduated.I wanted a very grungy and manly look.I believe I accomplished that.
The background paper is from DCWV. I embossed it with Qickutz embossing folder "Stars".Then I "grunged" the whole thing with distress ink.Gotta love T!m Holtz.
I'm not sure where I found the sentiment from..I stamped,embossed and cut out the hat & scroll.As for the inside,I added  my little "cutsey " touch.

Gotta love Changito ! ! ! ! ! Enjoy TTYL

Quite a catch Dad!

Just a quick post..
I made this card for my Dad for Father's day.I'm actually on time .Holy crap!!I just love this fish,I can't help but laugh.I hope he does.The PP is from Basic Grey,I think Obsc..?
OK I had to go check(I hate not having the right name)It's Offbeat,wow glad I checked caused I wasn't even close.lol.It suits this guy!!
I added some Bella Baubles for bubbles and Bella Dots for bling.Yes that's right.. BLING on a man's card!!Oh yes and I added some Spica touches on the fish!

I've been wanting to post this card but the recipient follows my blog!LOL.So now she has it and I can share...
I love this monkey by designer Dustin Pike for High Hopes Stamps.He just screamed for this sentiment and I'm sure many more that your thinking of..
For the patterned paper,I used an old collection from Scenic Route called Grafton .I've had this for some time and loved how it worked perfectly.\
Your just gonna love the sentiment on the inside..It made me giggle!Great,eh??

This was a quickie! Hee Hee.I 've been itching to use this stamp so ...I JUST did.LOL
The stamp is from Hero Arts,which I stamped on acetate in stazon and adhered onto some gorgeous KaiserKraft paper.
I then stamped out the butterflies again and colored them with copics.I cut and 3d them onto the acetate.I tied some ribbon around and added some pretty pearls.
I will be away for a few days ...we're off again to our monthly visit to Children's Hospital for my daughter's treatment.It just wipes me out going so it'll be a few before I post again.This gettin' old thing..it's not all that it's cracked up to be ?!LOL

A+ Teacher

I needed to make teacher cards for my daughter and by golly I'm on time.Well quite frankly,I'm never on time,so I guess there is a first for me.LOL. My daughter is in Grade 1 and has 2 teachers so here they are..

This little sweetie is from CC Designs.I thought she was perfect for a teacher card.I matched her up with October Afternoon Paper.Of course she is colored with Copics.

This next little fella is from Whipper Snapper.I  got to use some of Basic Grey's Origin's.I used some Prima flowers and that great leaf from Prima.......love it!!Some Basic Grey brads in the center of the flowers.
On both cards I used a stamp saying "You're special " instead of the norm "Thank you" I usually use.
Because let's face it,you gotta be special in order to survive all day and 5 days a week with my child!LOL.

Vrooooom.......Riley !

My attempt at a manly card.I needed to make a birthday card for my Dad so this is what I came up with.I really HATE doing man cards.It would be so much easier if they just liked flowers and bling and all that pretty stuff!Am I right or what??Boy you men would probably get a hundred more cards a year than the usual "have tos".
So as you can see my featured image is Riley.He is mounted on some corkboard and surrounded by the fabulous "Old guys rule"paper from Creative Imaginations.I had to make this card bigger than the standard because I wanted to show off that paper.I hope "Papa" likes!! lol.

I colored it with copics,even attempted to make grass.lol.The background paper was from a script stamp by Hero Arts.The pinkypeach paper is from.....,huh,actually I can't remember.Oops Sorry!
I added some ribbon and pearls.The sentiment is a clear dimensional sticker by Cloud9Designs that I adhered to that ??PatternedPaper.Again..sorry!lol.Still don't remember...hmmm it'll come to me sooner or later.
