You're Kind of Amazing...


Happy Saturday! Sorry my blogging has been so out of sorts lately... (lots of sickness going around my house right now- blech!)

I've still found some time to get crafty while participating in Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge! I've been 26/26 days so far (with a few make up days).. I've been posting them on Instagram and on my Facebook page, I'd love for you to follow me! :)

Anyway onto my card for today, I colored this a few days ago (Day 20) for the challenge and thought it would make a perfect birthday card for my husband! It also happened to be a perfect match for the latest sketch on CAS(E) this Sketch!

I used the super adorable giraffe from WPlus9, Party Animal, and thought it would be fun to put the giraffe IN the balloon!

Amazing Giraffe

I mounted my tag (from Pretty Pink Posh- my favorite!) onto the polka dot embossing background by We R Memory Keepers and called it done!

Thanks for stopping by- Enjoy your weekend!

Love You x2

February is the month of LOVE right?

Feels like that's been the general theme of my post recently :) Either that or I just have a lot of nieces to make valentines for!

These last two cards are for my oldest 2 nieces that live out of state, I wanted to wait til they received them before I posted (I post on Instagram- and they follow me on there, I didn't want to ruin the surprise!)

I turned to one of my favorites- Amor Anya from The Greeting Farm!

Love You (Pink)

Love You (purple)

My two nieces are in their teens, so I tried to make the cards a little more hip and appear like they would be selfies that they would post on Instagram! I also made the cards smaller and square-ish, it's a 4.25" x 4."

 Ok, that's it for now... thanks for stopping by!

Thinking of You

It's Tiddly Ink Tuesday!

Which means it's time for another new challenge! This week, the theme is "Thinking of You."

I used this sweet Shy Violet (Wryn) image that I had sitting in my colored stash... I've been participating in Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge, it's totally helped me build up my stash of colored images- all I have to do is pull together pieces for the card and Voila!

Thinking of You

Please check out all the details on the Tiddly Ink Challenge blog and see the other fab creations by the design team! Hope to see YOU play along!

Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine Kids


Popping in quick after spending the afternoon at the zoo with my hubs and kids to share the cards I made for MY own kids for Valentine's Day! :)

I used this' new to me' set from The Greeting Farm- OA Special Delivery`, I picked it up pretty recently during a sale they had!

First, this one for my daughter's FIRST Valentine!

Valentine Amelia

And this one for my son.  I'm also entering this one into this month's Touch of Red challenge at The Greeting Farm!

Valentine Oliver

Silly me, I created this one off this sketch over on CAS(E) this sketch too, only to discover I was a few days late from the deadline- OOPS!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back again with some more to share!

Happy Valentine's Day!

It's Valentine's Day!  Hope you're spending it with your someone special ♥

I pulled out this super sweet Sweetie Bean stamp from The Greeting Farm to make some 'non-traditional' colored Valentines for 2 of my nieces since they're not super into pink.

This first one is for my niece that LOVES orange...
Orange Valentine

and here's the other that I'm entering into The Greeting Farm's Touch of Red challenge!

Sweet Blue

I'm loving the red and blue color combo and thought it would make a sweet valentine! ♥

Wishing I snapped some better photos of these cards... but I was in a rush to get out the door yesterday to get these to them!

I have 2 other valentine's to share.. but will wait another few days to share as they are still on their way to two more nieces via snail mail!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Great Chemistry!

Happy Tiddly Inks Tuesday- it's time for a *NEW* challenge!!!

This week's theme is LOVE! Just in time... Valentine's Day is right around the corner!!

I pulled out some oldies (but always goodies) Chemical Love for my card today...

Great Chemistry

I printed these two scientists together and thought they made some Great Chemistry together! (I made my own sentiment using word). They were looking a little plain, so I decided to mount them on some glitter cardstock and die cut a small heart in between them to show that *spark* of love. ♥ I also found the patterned paper in one of my (ahem...many) 6x6 stacks of paper and thought they looked like little atoms and bursts of chemicals and a perfect match to this perfect pair! :)

Be sure to check out all the details for the challenge and I hope to see YOU play along!
