Cute bird from Home Decor

I've been wanting to use this cute little bird from Home Decor... finally had an idea.. though my inking technique needs some work....I can't seem to keep it just on the embossed part... but hey, I'm a work in progress! lol

Decided I better try some of those cards that the Pink Stamper enabled me to buy the cartridges for.... lol

Quack me up...

Here's a card I made for a friend this morning. I was very simple, but I kinda like how it turned out.

Playing around the the Bind It All

I finally got around to trying the Bind It All that's been sitting here unopened for a few months. Not too bad for my first try.

Playing around the the Bind It All

I finally got around to trying the Bind It All, I've had a while but never actually used it.. here's what I made.

This one I scraplifted.. but I thought it was sooo cute

Got this one from the Cricut Message Board. I don't remember the name of the person who created it, but I had the stamp and made it almost the same as hers...

Guess who Loves you

Here's one I just did this morning. I am so loving this stamp set from Stampin Up! Bet ya couldn't tell, eh? lol

Older cards

I've been under the weather for a week or better, so I haven't had a chance to create anything... I was looking through my photos though and I found some of the first cards I made...I was so proud of I tend to stick to very basic cards (mostly inspired by videos by the Pink Stamper)... but for what it's worth, here they are.

Made this card this morning. I found an awesome deal on a scrapbook package that was on clearance for $6 including an album, embellies, ribbon, etc.. regular $25, I didn't particularly like the album, but it had some really cute paper and whatnot. All of this is from the kid except the green base cardstock.

My Daughter's Mother's Day Wish

My daughter is in Florida for a short vacation and couldn't be here for Mother's Day, but she sent me this today... I thought it was so cute!

Betty Boop

Mardenz from the Cricut messageboard was nice enough to share a .svg file of Betty Boop... I was so excited!  I have a huge Betty Boop fan in the family.. I made this for her.

My Version of Pink Stampers "Cherry Card"

Here's my version of Pink Stamper's Cherry card.... I totally don't have the paper or the stamp... but as close as I could get with my stash

A card for a friend

ok.. tore it apart... rearranged.. better but still.. ?

I just made this card... It looks better in person than in the photo..but it's still missing something... suggestions helpful! ????

Izzy had her babies!

Hey everyone.. I'm such a dork! My kitty, Izzy, had her babies last night. She had two of them about 12:30 last night, I stayed up with her... they were so cute.... I thought she was done.. but when I got up this morning there were a total of SIX!!!! Good lord, I'm really becoming the cat lady.. I've got two dogs and now NINE cats! I certainly hope some of my friends (six of them to be exact...LOL) want a kitten in about 6 weeks. Here's a photo.. I'm like a proud grandma.. can you imagine what it will be like when I actually have grandchildren!?!?!

Prom 2009

I'm not at all liking this layout... I'm just not on my game today.  I hate that.  I have the day off, I wanted to scrap.. but everything is just not clicking.. I think I'm trying too hard.  I did remove some of the bling from this layout.. I think the photo corners are too much on the left hand page... maybe just put them on one of the main photos?

My son just went to his Junior prom with a good friend of his.  His whole group of friends went together, there were 24 of them at the restaurant before the dance. They are a great group of kids and I think all but two couples just went as friends.  I love the colors of the girls dresses this year.   Alex looked soooo handsome.. of course I'm not biased!!  lol   I think I OD'd on the bling but it was all black and silver.. I thought the layout needed some color.  Let me know what you think.

Challenge #9

I don't like the "y".. it needs to be bigger.. and now I'm thinking it should've been "Backseat Drivers".... you ever tear apart your work and redo when you have a better idea later?

Here's my mix up your font challenge

Here's my #5 Challenge following the page map.

Pink Stamper Challenge #3

Challenge #3 - create a kids project.  I did a scrapbook page from a spring break my kids spent with their grandma.  I actually found another picture to fill in that yellow part of the circle, but I didn't redo the photo.   

Pink Stamper Challenge #2

For my "try something new" I made a tag to incorporate into a scrapbook page.  The photo is one of my daugter's Senior pics.   I've never made a tag before... it's a bit plain, but I like it.

Pink Stampers Challenge #1

Here's my Brown and Pastel project for the Pink Stamper's Challenge #1....  I'm just learning to water color crayon..... need some work on the blending.  Thanks for looking.
