Snoopy and Hello Kitty...

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a good weekend! It sure went by fast!! Today is Lollipop Crafts new challenge ... ANYTHING GOES!! an easy one where you can be as creative as you want!

Over the weekend, it was my niece's birthday and her theme this year is Snoopy, but she's a BIG Hello Kitty lover! So I decided to have them both on her card...
I used a step card base and added a panel on the last step. The back has a little pocket where I put a larger tag with a birthday message. Snoopy, Woodstock, and Hello Kitty are from coloring pages found on the internet (sorry but forgot to mark the link). She's turning 7, so I added it to the cake Snoopy's holding. Her name is computer generated and cut into little blocks.

Here are some more close-up pics...

have a wonderful day! ;D

Girl Princess...

Hi all! Are you surprised to hear from me again so soon? heheeee! I sure am!  Lately, my mojo's been either really detailed cards, like the one here, or CAS cards like the one today...

Got a fun sketch from Raise The Bar, and they're celebrating their 100th challenge! It's a pretty fun one too, see how it resembles the number 100? The stamp image is from TGF Build A Onsies Girl set, and I have the boy set too! Finally got a chance to ink it up and thought it would be fun to make a few small gift cards (4x4 size).  So far I only made this one... LOL! The Farm Fresh Friday Challenge is to use classic patterns paper, so I chose "argyle" with fun colors! I'll be inking up my boy Onsies set soon, but there's some birthday cards I need to finish for this weekend! I'll be sharing those with you soon!

Card Supplies:
Image - TGF Build A Onsies Girl set (TGF clear stamps)
Paper - MME (Life of the Party), DCWV (colored cardstock), Recollections (kraft base)

April Showers...

Happy Saturday everyone! I've been kinda lost this week... why? because my computer crashed... HARD!! All I could think of was all my pictures of family events for the last year and a half... birthdays, vacations, graduations, christmas!! LOST... GONE!! ;{  Luckily, I was able to transfer out all my data with another computer, but it gave me quite a scare! and a real good lesson for not backing-up regularly! You bet I will from now!!

So since my computer time has been limited (sharing with my daughter), I've had some time to come up with this card...
Using one of the new April release from All That Scraps, it's Rainy Day Birgitta. She so adorable  taking cover from the rain with that giant leaf umbrella! All the new April releases are now available at the ATS store! I used scraps from BG Kioshi pack, a half used doily, and stenciled in some clouds.
The double tag has a hidden message on the second tag...
just lift the top one...
I'm sending this out to a good friend...
hope she'll be surprised when she gets it!

A quick reminder... All That Scraps' current Wednesday Challenge is Anything Goes... there's still time to play, just link up by April 24th for your chance to win 5 CC Design digis of your choice.
