Did I hear "Cupcakes"?

Marlene, from Disguised as a Grown-Up, drew this stinkin' cute chef which was the freebie this week at The Digi Shack. What a gal! She can crack me up, make awesome cards and now she creates digis too.
See that cute paper in the back ground. I snagged it from my daughter's stash (after asking of course). Boy it sure felt good for the shoe to be on the other foot - usually she is digging into my crafting stash.
Well it's getting late and I need to hunt down something to satisfy my sweet tooth since we don't have any cupcakes in the house.
Thank you for looking! Have a great week end!
Challenges for this card:


  • Image: Fat-boyardee from the Digi Shack
  • Papers & CS: DCWV The Sweet Stach, Bazzill Basics Carob Cream, Neenah solar crest, Stampin' Up white CS (blue was made by coloring the edges of white scraps with my Prismacolor marker)
  • Inks: none
  • Tools & Embellishments: Prismacolor, Bic, & Copic markers, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Stampin' Up oval punches, sentiment created in Word

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
