Best Friends

I just loved the Magnolia Stamp of Edwin with the bike so much, I added the Tilda with bike and decided to pair them together for one card. I used some Basic Grey paper for the background. I used a plethora of Nestabilities for the ovals, circles, etc.!! I also played more with my air compressor!

Boy's Best Friend

This image from Magnolia Stamps is so cute! I used some of the paper from Basic Grey (June Bug collection) with the cute doggies on it and decided to play with it a bit. I cut out some of the images (dog and bone) and popped them up on the card. I wrote "best friends" on the bone. I used my air compressor for the background. What fun that was!

Code Monkey Birthday

This card reminds me of my brother...He is a computer guru and we used to laugh at the scene from A Christmas Story when Ralphie comes down the stairs in his bunny suit! Since my brother works from home on a computer all day, I thought this would be the perfect card for his recent birthday! The stamp is from Stampendous and is one of the Changito line.

Lighthouse Birthday

I made this card for my mom to give to my brother for his birthday. I forgot to take a picture of it before I sent it, so I had mom scan it so I could post it here. I had the image all colored up and it was mom's idea to add some actual sand from the beach on the card. We glued some sand and a tiny shell we found on the beach to the card to give it some depth! I think it turned out really nice! Stamp by Stamps Happen, Inc.

Campfire Kids

I think this new digi-stamp from Hambo Stamps is a scream! I wish you could see all of the sparkle in the flames of the fire! The background paper is one of the new Basic Grey papers from the fall collection and I thought the tree branches in the top looked like more fire coming out of the image. The sentiment is also from Hambo Stamps, but I cut it apart so that it would be in a line. You might not be able to see it well, but I put a little brad above the one boy that says "Boo!"

Wishing Well

This cute stamp and sentiment from Hambo Stamps would make a great get well card, or just to simply wish someone well. I adore the cute bunny peeking out from behind the well. This one was fun to color. I love the look the little brads gave it, but they were a bugger to get in the ribbon. They ended up MOSTLY straight!

Leaf Pile Piggy

I am so glad that Fall is finally here and the temperatures are getting cooler! I LOVE this time of year!!!!

It has been a while since I last posted. I had a lot going on and last week I went on vacation to the Outer Banks. Boy was that fun and relaxing. I did quite a bit of coloring with my Copics, so now I am playing catch-up creating cards with the images.

This cute card features stamps by Hambo Stamps (both the image and the sentiment). The patterned paper is from the new Basic Grey fall collection. The papers are so yummy...
