Flappy Birthday

Hi everyone!  Here's my card for September's From the Heart Stamps Digital Stamp of the Month Challenge.  The cutie image I used is from this month's set, Flappy Birthday

I colored the image with Copics and merged a sentiment from the set on top of a digital border from SU!/MDS.  Kept my design simple and only added 3 chevron die cuts with a button embellishment.

Thanks for your visit and enjoy the rest of the week!

This was a fun card to make.  Isn't the monkey the cutest!

HAPPY Halloween

Hi everyone!  I'm back today with an easy and fun card which was inspired by the Outlawz Greetings Card Challenge (GCC0908).  The theme is 'use happy in the sentiment'.

I combined different elements from SU!'s Seasonal Snapshots Project Life to create my card.  The ghost was fussy cut, layered and adhered with dimensionals.  Punched bats were also added to embellish the card.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

Holiday Mini Mazes -- Tree


Hi everyone,  So sorry I haven't been around lately.  It's been a hectic few weeks with life getting in the way of blogging.  Hopefully things will calm down and I can get back to posting on a more regular basis.

I finally have a card to share using another fun maze from Doodle Pantry's Holiday Mini Mazes.  I swear these mazes are addictive!  This time I combined the tree maze with the fun cookie jar from Everyday Jargon.  So happy to be able to add another Christmas card to my meager stash.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra -- Anything Goes (must be Christmas)

I hope everyone has a wonderful day.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Doodle Pantry Release

Happy Labor Day to everyone in the States!  Hard to believe September is here already.  With the new month comes a New Release from Doodle Pantry; and I am delighted to share two cards today showcasing two of the new sets.  For my first card I used the new set, Holiday Mini Mazes, to create a snowy scene using the snowman maze. What fun!  I included a copy of the path of the maze on the inside of the card.  The background digi paper is from Snowman Pile-up and the trees are from Happy Trails Camper.  The sentiment is from SU!/MDS.

Next up is a card I made using the fun set called Yard Yabber.

This set is perfect for creating those hard to make masculine cards... In fact, the card above is one I made for my husband's birthday.  Love the sentiments in this set, and couldn't resist adding a candle to embellish my card.  

Be sure to stop by Doodle Pantry to see all the new goodies that were added this month.  In addition, don't forget to stop by the Specials Page to see this month's Special Products and get your coupon code for the 30% off sale going on now through September 6.
