BIG News!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday & are enjoying some special time with family and friends!

I am SUPER excited to announce that I am one of 5 fabulous ladies that make up the "Farmers" at The Greeting Farm for 2014!!!  I am *beyond* excited to be apart of The Greeting Farm again, and can't wait to show you what is coming to the Farm!

I just about fell out of my chair when I saw the cuteness for the new releases coming January 1st! Today I'm sharing with you "Miss Anya Night Out."

Since one of my nieces (who absolutely loves the color purple!) has her birthday right after the new year and I knew Miss Anya would be just perfect! So enough chit chat here is my card...
Miss Anya Night Out

Isn't she just the sweetest?? I found some 110lb Neenah Solar white cardstock and couldn't wait to play with some Clean & Simple one-layer cards! (I made another card  for the CAS(E) this Sketch #58 challenge too!)

Warm Fuzzies

Hi all!

Are you ready for Christmas?!?! I can't believe it's only 4 days away!

Just popping in with a quick post to share my latest PeeWee Designs card with you!  She's one of the newest additions to the PeeWee family for December!  Beary warm wishes... a sweet girl who's got a little spunk :) she's got her warm winter hat and has her hands pulled into her sweater! Keep your eye out for PeeWee Designs in 2014.. a little bird told me some fun stuff is going on! ;)

Warm fuzzies

Totally made me think of one of my nieces.. for her birthday she really wanted a Flippeez hat, and not just any one she wanted the one that was a green monster! LOL (have you seen them? They're super cute hats that have a little pump in the tassel that make the ears flap. So cute that I had to get one for my son too- he LOVES it!  I colored the bear to match her hat... just might have to tuck this one into her Christmas gift! :)

Kept the card clean and simple to play along with CAS(E) this Sketch's last challenge of 2013 too!

Taking a short break from wrapping Christmas presents to pop in to share my Chi Chi Memories card!

This week I decided to use an older digi set called "Winter Fun" I just thought this penguin was too cute! & look more wood veneer embellies! Woohoo!


I hope you are bundling up and staying warm like this sweet penguin all wrapped in his cozy scarf.. it's definitely not scarf weather here- it was 80 degrees today!

Be sure stop by Chi Chi Memories and check out all the fab works of the rest of the design team too!

Christmas is a week away.. are YOU ready?

Holiday Cheer

"The best way to spread Christmas Cheer is to sing loud for all to hear!" One of my favorite quotes from the movie, "Elf"!

& here to spread some more Christmas cheer is this sweet girl from Chi Chi Memories! She's apart of the Joyful Season December release!

Holiday Cheer

What's your favorite Christmas movie?? It is getting so exciting to be able to share Christmas traditions and start new ones now that my son is a little older (19 months) this year! We've put up our tree, set out decorations inside and outside, and watched a few Christmas movies... What are your favorite family holiday traditions?

Merry Holiday

I was super crafty {late} last night... 2nd post today!

As I said before, once I found these wood veneer pieces I can't stop collecting them!

Once I saw the mini Christmas trees this idea totally popped in my head & paired with the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #56 it was perfect! :) AND it fits with the CAS-usal Fridays 122 - Out on a Limb Challenge too!

O Christmas Tree

Happy 15th!

My oldest niece turned FIFTEEN Friday.. I still can't believe it!

I took advantage of a sale over at The Greeting Farm last week and just *had* to pick up this adorable Anya image (and a few others!) This sweet image is just perfect for my niece!

I used Deconstructed Sketch #129 and came up with this...
Happy 15th

And I'm finally getting around to using the wood veneer pieces I've been hoarding! (shh.. I just bought more today too!- I'm addicted!)

Monday was my niece's EIGHTH birthday! (& my sister's!) Happy Birthday!

I made her this card with this super adorable image from PeeWee Designs, "Jump for Joy" & played along with the CAS(E) this Sketch #55 (I turned the sketch on it's side...)

Hooray It's Your Birthday

 isn't she just the sweetest?! I am just loving all these cute PeeWee Designs girlies! :)

Thankful for...

I have a lot to be thankful this year, a wonderful family, fabulous friends & all of YOU loyal readers & new comers too!  I started this blog a few years ago not knowing if I'd get many readers- but I totally get a kick out of seeing visitors from all over checking out my lil' piece of blogland!

This was another recent 'freebie' from Chi Chi Memories (find her here!) and with Thanksgiving coming up next week here in the U.S.  I thought it'd be just perfect to share this week :)

Isn't she just the cutest with her freshly baked turkey?

I cannot wait for all the yummy food to be consumed next week... my mom makes the BEST sticky rice w/Chinese sausage, BBQ pork, mushrooms & other delicious ingredients (it's not exactly a 'traditional' Thanksgiving food the pilgrims had, LOL!, but it is a tradition for our family!)  and it's always a big hit! YUM! :)

So what's your favorite Thanksgiving dish?

Back again sharing another SWEET image from PeeWee Designs!

This time I used super sweet Sprinkles! Isn't she the cutest?  I just love coloring all that hair!

So Sweet

Oh, and I experimented with some "new" skin color combos- what do ya think?

Happy Hump Day! :)

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Just flying by..

Did ya see the new freebie at Chi Chi Memories?

Oh! and did I mention I'm the newest member of the Chi Chi Memories design team? (Shhh.. not officially starting next month) But this adorable freebie was just too cute to pass up! Check out the challenge blog here too!

Fairy Bunny

The sentiment is actually from a Hero Arts Halloween set- but I think it fits perfectly for this sweet fairy bunny too! :)

Happy Birthday Emi!

My sweet sweet niece turned FIVE on Thursday and we're celebrating today!!

I was so excited to be asked to showcase some SWEET digis from a newly launched PeeWee Designs digital shop! I just couldn't wait to get these colored up!

The first one I made I chose to use on the birthday card for my niece, Emi!
Bday PeeWee

This cute girl is Smile! Love how excited she looks (& she reminds me a little of my goofy niece too) :)

I'm also joining the Reverse Confetti's November sketch challenge!

Happy *almost* Friday!

I'd seen this photo-inspiration card over on the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge blog a little while ago (can't remember why I didn't play with it before...) but this idea jumped to my mind when I was reminded of it.  I love these frames and colors together!

And here is what I did with it...

I just LOVE this little bee! (find him here)

Thanks for stopping by!

Popping in with a quick card with this cutie pie image from Chi Chi Memories.. just had to squeeze another Halloween card in! :)


Happy Halloween! Stay safe and eat lots of candy ;)

Wednesday, October 30, 2013


I just recently discovered images by Chi Chi Memories and OMGoodness they are the cutest!

This was a recent freebie(*edited to add: you can now find him here!), (there's a freebie every month!) and I just couldn't wait to get it colored and on a card.. pretty sure he's going to go in my son's Halloween scrapbook page as well! I used Deconstructed Sketch #124 & joining the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp too!


Are YOU all ready for Halloween tomorrow?

Friday, October 25, 2013


Happy Friday! I'm back again... seriously bitten by the card making bug this week! (& totally not complaining ;))

Officially made my first Christmas/holiday card of the year! I saw the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch and absolutely had to play along!


I just love this little reindeer.. I think I feel another card idea coming :)

Thursday, October 24, 2013

Love you

I'm on a bit of a roll this week!  FOURTH card this week (another to share later...)

In my blog hopping/twitter following I discovered this blog-

Where have I been that I've only found them now?  They even have freebie digis! (found here)

I decided to play along with the current challenge-a SKETCH! & if you don't know me by now... I love me a good sketch! Quickest card I have ever made with *gasp* no coloring (shh... don't tell my copics!) I also pulled out some sequins that I've been waiting to use too!

Love You

Think I'll need to sneak this one somewhere for my hubby! ♥

Thanks Doc!

My sister had asked me to make a thank you card for a specialist my niece had to see for awhile (no worries- she's 100% healthy!)

I knew this Pink Cat Studio Dr. Billy image would be perfect!
Thank You Dr.

I followed Deconstructed Sketch #123 too! I love these sketches! :)

Celebrate With Style!

Ok.. a little later than I intended, but I lost sunlight before I could snap a pic!

I've had this idea to do with this stamp set since I got it... and finally someone it'd be perfect for- my sister!

Celebrate with Style

Who doesn't love shoes??? Happy Birthday Sis- ♥ ya!

My 1st Lawn Fawn!

I received some Lawn Fawn stamps a little while ago as a RAK (Thanks Ivy!), and can't believe I'm only now just getting around to playing with them!

I love this little gnome guy! (wonder if a little gnome girl is in the works??) I created this quick and simple card to add to my stash...

Gnome Sweet Gnome

Today's my sis's birthday too..be back in a few to share the card I made her :)

First Year

I've realized that I haven't shared the scrapbook that I've been working on for my son.  A few sneak peeks here and there ... but there are SO many more pages- I just haven't photographed them all yet and still trying to get caught up!

I recently have been reviewing my pins on Pinterest (find me here!) to remind myself of projects and things I want to do- I 'repinned' them for a reason right? I rediscovered a couple of layouts by Susan Weinroth I had pinned... These layouts she had done for her son's first year specifically. Awesome right? Totally inspired me and I wanted pages like these in Cayden's book.. so these are my take on them! Hope she didn't mind me "CASE-ing" her layouts!

I did this one about a month ago, I had a hard time narrowing down all the pictures I wanted to use!

1st Year

I also remembered having this stamp set that has the month stamps just perfect for each photo! :)

1 Year of You

More pages coming soon!

Ghostly Greetings!

I squeezed in a bit of crafting time during my lil' guy's nap time to play along with CAS-E this Sketch today!

I've been in a Halloween-y fall mood since we took a short road trip up north last weekend to a pumpkin patch! I paper pieced this ghostly owl (WHO says ghosts have to be white? LOL) this was probably the fastest card I've put together.. think it took me longer to take some pictures of it since the sun was setting on me!

Ghostly Greetings

and a little closer view to see some of the dimension...
Ghostly Owl

I have the itch now.. a little late, but I think I see some more Halloween cards in the near future :)

Enter the Dragon!

By the time my son turned one in May, I  really wanted to have his scrapbook up to date. I whipped out 2-3 pages a day- I was DETERMINED I tell ya! There are still a few pages completed that aren't quite "done" they're still hanging out there for the perfect embellishment to finish them off...Enter the Dragon

When Cayden turned one month old (its a significant celebration in Chinese culture) we had a big dinner to celebrate. Even though he couldn't really enjoy any of the delicious food because he slept through the whole party I had to have a page in his scrapbook for it! :)  Since he was born in the Year of the Dragon, I've been holding out for a perfect little dragon image/embellishment and I finally found one!  The awesome Sister Stamps came out with a dragon stamp and I was lucky enough to win it in a giveaway! Woohoo! I couldn't wait to get it colored up and add it to this layout!

Ok.. enough chit chat here it is!
1 month Dragon

and it a little closer up of the dragon...

Baby boom!

So it seems like everyone around me is expecting a baby... (no no no, not me.)

Since I still had all my baby stuff out I thought I'd make another one "just in case!" & I'm joining in on the fun at Simon Says Stamp "Use a clear or rubber stamp" Challenge!

Baby Congrats

Lil Owlets!

A few months ago I posted this card I made for a friend when she announced she's expecting twins...well I attended her baby shower this past weekend and of course had to make a card for that too!

They found out they're having girls and had an owl themed baby shower- everything was so cute!  I just had to dig out this adorable Sweet Owl stamp set just for the occasion!

Feelin' Fall-ish

Happy October!

It's starting to look like Fall around here... at least at my house, we started to pull out some of our fall & Halloween decor!

I also finally got this Hey Mae image I colored a little while ago onto a card!

Fall Mae

Oh Baby!

Seems like there's a lot of people I know having babies again... makes me miss the baby stages of my little guy- he's growing too fast.. 16 months already! (see updated pics on the left sidebar!)

I thought I'd give it another go and play along with the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge with a baby card! I flipped the sketch to make it work for this adorable Mommy Anya image.

This also fits in with the Garden Variety Tuesday "textures" Challenge at The Greeting Farm- gotta love some embossed dots and glitter! :) AND the Simon Says Stamps Wednesday "Emboss it" Challenge!

Oh Baby

Thanks for stopping by!

Tag! You're SUPER!

Time for something a little different today...

The challenge this week over at Some Odd World was to create a tag following along this tic-tac-toe grid:

I chose the center row because I wanted to use this super cute Super Tobie image!

Give it a Whirl!

I've been working on reorganizing my craft area and 're-discovered' this stamp set and just so happened to see that the Curtain Call Inspiration challenge theme is Carnival Craze!

I also used Deconstructed Sketch #115!

I can't wait for fall to come because that means our state fair will be coming to town (not to mention much cooler weather!), I haven't been in years, but looking forward to taking my lil guy and maybe winning him some prizes! :) What are you most looking forward to this Fall?

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Let's Sit & Chat

I just got some new (to me) stamps from The Greeting Farm they are too stinkin' cute I couldn't wait to get them colored!

Playing along with the colors at CAS-ual Fridays Challenge: Aqua, Green & Orange!  Not a color combination I would have come up with myself.. but definitely one I'll play with again. :)

A Fairy Hello

Happy Hump-Day! :)

Have you all checked out Some Odd World yet? It's a wonderful site dedicated to those Some Odd Girl lovers (like myself) to chat, play along in weekly challenges & meet some fabulous crafters!

This week's challenge is  "Fairy Magic!" I had to get a little creative with this one since I don't have any SOG fairies....yet! I gave Happy Gwen some wings by trimming a doily and glittered her up!

"Fairy" Gwen

She looks like a fairy doesn't she?

I also must be on an aqua kick..love this bright color with the muted kraft color :)

Come back soon!
