Happy Easter sweetie...

TGIF my friends!

I am so glad to have the day off today. It's been a busy couple of weeks and I have a lot of catching up to do around the house. And believe me when I say that the crafty room is going to be the biggest project of them all. I sound like such a broken record but it is in a dismal state and if I have any hope of doing any crafting in it next week it has to be cleaned and organized. Currently there is barely enough free space on my desk to even lay an A2 size card down and the floor is cluttered with stamp binders that I have gotten into and not put away... oy!

Anywho... of course I've got another Easter card to share today. It has been quite a while since I've played with a SOG image so I went in search of one that would work. I don't really have any of their Easter themed stamps so I knew I would have to get creative. Flipping through the digis I have printed out I came across Woodsy Mae and something about her got me excited. With the simple addition of an egg hidden behind the stump I could see Mae looking right at home on an Easter card. I pulled all my colors from one of my most favorite papers, Carta Bella's Cool Summer cloud print. Normally I use the cloud side of the paper but this time I changed things up a bit by using the chevron print on the B-side and then fussy cut a few of the clouds as embellishments instead. I really love how this all came together!  :)

Alrighty then, time to get busy cleaning and organizing. Wish me luck and I shall see ya on Monday!

Hoppy Easter...

Hi guys!

I'm really running behind this morning so I've got to make this post super quick. My card today is for the MFT sketch 221 challenge. I used one of the bunnies from the BB Somebunny set that I got this past weekend... talk about cute, cute, cute! One thing though, I was surprised that there isn't a single Easter sentiment that comes with the set. It's all good though 'cause I just paired this sweet bunny up with an Amy R sentiment that was the perfect size to fit in the little square with her. I did omit the sentiment strip from the original sketch because I didn't need it but otherwise I kept pretty true to the design plan. 

Ok, time for me to 'hop' to it, LOL!
Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It
paper- Doodlebug (Hello Spring)
stamps- My Favorite Things (BB Somebunny set), Amy R (sentiment)
ink- Memento tuxedo black and Colorbox creamy brown
Simon Says Stamp stitched square die
My Favorite Things horizontal stitched strip die
Copic markers:
bunny- E50, E81, 0, R000, R01, YR31, YR12, YG0000, YG00, YG11, C0
background- B0000, B000, E30, E321, E42

Somebunny loves you...


So are you thinking "Second verse, same as the first"? Yep, not only do I have another Greeting Farm card to share with you today but it is another Bean card as well. I hadn't planned on making a second card for the 'Spring Colors' FFF challenge but when I was in the store yesterday getting links for my post I came across this Easter Bean digi and couldn't believe I had overlooked this cutie for all this time. So I made a quick purchase and printed her out right away. Originally the plan was to save her for a card next week but when my crafting time got super limited yesterday she was the quickest stamp I had ready to color up so I didn't fight it. More Doodlebug papers, because they always play nicely with my TGF stamps, and I had another sweet Easter card done.

Alrighty, I've got a long day ahead and I should go get myself ready for it. 
TTYL!  :)

A happy Easter to you...

Good morning!

Today I am playing along in the Spring Colors Farm Fresh Friday challenge over at TGF. I chose to ink up Hatter Bean because her hat reminded me of a crazy cute Easter bonnet. The Doodlebug paper that I paired up with her gave me a lot of color options to use and I think I used them all on that hat, LOL! She looks so proud of it though so ya gotta love her confidence. There isn't much else to this card but when you have a cute stamp and cute paper what else do you really need? ;)

Now I really do need to hit the shower and get ready for the day. 
Later gators!  :)

Peep, peep...

Hi there!

I got some new stamps from Sugar Nellie over the weekend and I was very excited to ink them up and play a bit. They carry these cute Basik the cat stamps from the Scrapberry's range and while I love the kitty, the other little critters that are included in the sets are just as cute and can be the star of the show just as much as Basik. Which is what I did on this Easter card that I'm entering into the Sugar Bowl 'anything goes' challenge. I inked up five of the birdies from the Basik and Sparrow set and colored them up to look like baby chicks. I gave them a springtime scene to live in then kept the rest of the card super simple. Heck... even my sentiment is part of that great Bella Blvd paper that I'm using once again. :)

Well, I hope your week is off to a great start. I'm looking forward to a fun day at work today so I'm excited to get myself moving. Thanks for stopping by and I'll see ya tomorrow.    
Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It

Egg-stra special...


I hope everyone has had a lovely week. Mine was busy but good and it is still going strong. Even with everything that I've got going on I was still able to get into the crafty room and make another Easter card to share. I went to my binder of CC Designs stamps for the main character and decided that Country Lula was going to get on a card this year. Lula is a favorite of mine and I paired her up with these pretty Girl Talk papers from October Afternoon because their vintage vibe seemed to suit her perfectly. As always I pulled my Copic colors from the papers... even throwing in some of that warm grey for a nice change of pace. :)

Now I really should get going... work, work, work!
Enjoy your weekend everybody!

Hoppy Easter...

Hello, hello! 

I'm running behind this morning so I'm posting on the fly... this Lil' Lolita has been sitting in my stack of printed stamps for a couple years now. I know, I know... shame on me! She is called Flower Girl Ivy and was originally part of a wedding themed release. All I had to do was stick a die cut egg in her hand to turn Ivy into an Easter morning cutie. I paired her up with Doodlebug Easter Parade papers because, just like my St. Pat's card, it makes for a fun and fast scene card. Putting this together I got a bit sad and nostalgic, I really miss Tickled Pink stamps. Luckily I have a great collection of Lil' Lolitas and I'm definitely going to be looking at them with new eyes to see how I can tweak them for all sorts of cards.

Ok, time for me to get a move on. 
Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It
