You make me SMILE...

Happy Memorial Day!! Today's card is one that I made for my C.A.T.S. partner, Brenda, and it fits into our Lollipop Crafts challenge this week to make a card ...

My DD was listening to this song, SMILE by Uncle Kraker, the other day and thought it would be perfect for this! SN Penelope is the perfect image...surely to make anyone smile! Find out all the deets on this fun challenge at LC!

My awesome C.A.T.S. partner for May is Brenda! The theme for this month was to use Orange, Pink, and Yellow. Look at the adorable card and tag she made!
 Thanks Brenda!! and for the extra goodie too!
I'm behind on sharing some of the awesome projects from my April CATS partner and all my Secret Sisters! So stayed tuned, hopefully I can get them all posted soon!!

Summer Bling

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Can you believe it's already the end of May and summer is just around the corner!
Today at Lollipop Crafts, Kris is hosting this week's challenge...BLING IT!!
How easy and fun is that? My card today features Fleur Anya, she is so pretty and easy to bling her up!

Used gold Stickles, pearls, and Sakura Clear Star pen to bling up my card. The paper is from Me&My Big Ideas paper pad that I bought soooo long ago. Never thought I would use this particular pattern because it seemed so busy...but now I just love it! Perfect for summer themes... like FFC's Summer Lovin' challenge!
Be sure to stop by Lollipop Crafts for more BLING inspired projects, and all the deets to win a fabulous prize from our sponsor this week, Digi's with Attitude!

Time to Sit and Relax...

how I wish it could be more often!! The card I'm sharing today is a birthday card with a masculine theme. Background paper (from MME) looks kinda pinkish here, but IRL it's more red. Anyway... it's something different than what I've done before... using objects as the main focal image. I followed a fun sketch from The Sweet Stop, used a Hero Arts stamp set that was part of my prize package from Lily Pad Cards, and sentiment is also from another Hero Arts set. I also joined the Basic Grey challenge to mix and match different BG products... the two panels from Oliver paper pad and brads from the Olivia set.
Enjoy your Sunday...find a moment to "Sit and Relax!"

Make it work...

Today at Lollipop Crafts is Sponsor Spotlight on Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps. There's more info on this wonderful company over at LC. For my card I chose the adorable Christie Angel...
The paper is from my old stash that I never used, can't remember who it's from, but everytime I see this pretty paper I couldn't make it work for me. So finally, I colored my image to match, found a sketch to follow, kept it simple, and wah-la! Like it? Stop by Lollipop Crafts to join in our fun challenge this week, there's still time left to play for a chance of winning some cute images from our sponsor!!

Surfer Anya at the Lily Pad

Hi all! Where do the days go??? Is it because we spend it with good friends & family and time just flies when you're having Surfer Anya! She was one of my lucky wins from TGF, and finally got to ink her up!

She's ready to ride the waves in her cute board shorts!
The dp are from another win at Amy Y.'s blog... I've been hoarding them cause they are soooo cute!! Gotta find out who the maker is! Sentiment is from Inkadinkado "just saying" set - it was a bit too big, so i cut off one outer pattern on the circle - perfect! All the edges are inked with Colorbox brown to give it a touch of distressed look. The border punch is from MS and ribbon from Michael's (one of my fave running out soon...oh noooo!)

Thanks for stopping by! ;D
