Small flower garden

Hubbys nieces just graduated from high school.  So I thought I'd send them a card but I still haven't.  Bad Bad  Guess I better find that address.  :)  I used old olive and DP from Bali Breeze and some stickles on the flowers and bow.   The three little dots on the bottom are cute and I got them from Michael's but dont remember what they are called.  :)  Sorry

A Tied Frog

Found this stamp on The Stampin Place.  Okay I know I love frogs but isn't it so cute?  Just had to get this stamp.  Not sure about the designer paper but.... It's okay.   The card stock is real red, bashful blue, and brilliant blue.  Try again on different paper.  

Black, White and Pink

Was playing with a stamp I got a while back but just hadn't used.  It is from RubberNecker site.  The thinking of you is a SU rub on and the white brads and ribbon are on hand.  :)

Celebrate butterflies

Lets see Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, So Saffron or Barley Banana, Real Red, and Tempting Turquoise.  These colors were all for one of Kwarners challenges.  I am gettin this posted way to late but I did it.  :)  For the RR is used a red gem brad.  The stamps are from Time Well Spent and All-Year cheer 2.

Lavender birthday

I haven't stopped crafting just haven't found the time to post.  :)  So, I am still around.  Sent a few cards without gettin a photo of them. :(  This sketch was fun.  At first I was a bit stumped but I remembered this cute chick and knew she would fit.  The chick was colored with pencils and I added some stickles and liquid glass.  The brads are purple gems and the DP is unknown.  I used SU's CS in lovely lilac and Almost Amethyst.

Baby diaper cakes

There are 44 size 1 diapers per cake in these three tiers.  Each has a onesie, blanket, burp cloth, 2 wash clothes, socks, baby wash, bibs, and teether.  The boy's also has rubber duck and beaded ring.  I used the Cricut for the bottle.  
The CS is Whisper  White, Blush Blossom, Brilliant Blue and Real Red (around the second layer).  It was embossed with red.  Girl's has a pacifier.  These were rather fun to make.  :)   Hope they like them.

Giraffe baby cards

These baby girl cards I did for SCS feature stampers challenge.  The giraffe and the baby (is a dollar stamp) is from Michael's.  The DP is from Marcella, CS is Regal Rose, WW, and Chocolate Chip.  One giraffe has liquid glass on its spots and the other has stickles.  Think I like the LG better.

Breanna's Card

Breanna's a budding paper crafter.  :)  She wanted to make a card the other day so off the the craft room (aka laundry room) we went.  She chose the colors and stamp.  If ya look closely you can see she colored in the flowers with a teal colored pencil.  hehehe  Interesting for a 5yr old.  :)  I did do the stamping in white craft ink from SU.  Flower is from CTMH's friendship word puzzle.

Paper Crafts Lift

You can find the original in April/May issue of PaperCrafts.  It is on page 113 upper right-hand corner.  There was no info on the card that I could find.  I used Pretty in pink and Sandylion's Scroll Vine and a corner rounder punch to make the scallop on the oval.  No nesties yet.  :)  The flowers and rickrack are by unknown companies just in my stash.  The sentiment is from The Stampin Place.  The bottom ruffle was a bit challenging to figure out but I got it.  I think.  :)

CTMH From Me to You Kit

Close to My Heart made this really fun kit.  Wish they did more of these.  Here are two cards I made from this kit.  The colors are Garden Green, Hollyhock, and Sunflower.  The base is umm a cream color.  The ribbon and brads came with the kit so they match colors.  I sent these out for Mother's Day so I'm postin them now.  :)


Been busy stampin and liven just not postin.  :)
On SCS last week was featured stamper Michelle (aka Sf9erfan).  Her gallery was awesome.  I had a really hard time choosing but I just loved this card so....    :)  I didn't change a lot.  I chose to change embellishment from a brad to a button and it's location,  I used Brides & Babies  flower stamp, also the sentiment is from The Stampin Place & used SU's Almost Amethyst 6x6 prints sampler paper.  Hope those three differences count.  :)  The green in there is certainly celery.  Flowers, stems, and do dads are AA, bashful blue, certainly celery, pretty in pink, and barely banana.  I also made one just like it except made it a birthday card for my SL.  It was a great layout.  Thanks for stoppin by,
