Happy Birthday Bella Sistahs!!

I made a variation of this card for the 3 girls on my Bella Birthday list! I sometimes get behind on sending cards to these girls but I am ahead of myself for May. The inside is a white piece with Birthday Wishes stamped in cocoa in the corner. I had not used a DP for the main card base and it was a bit of a challenge but it worked out OK in the end. Still scanning my cards at this point, but I really need to find my camera as my pics are a bit disappointing!

As always I am so glad you popped by and I would love to know what you think!!

April Blog Hop Bombshell Stamps!

This month the challenge was Pretty in pink. I love pink and love making cards with it! I also began my SS challenges with my blogging group Design DIVAS (check out their blogs on my side bar!! They are all amazing!!) and the first one was to make an envelope card. I followed the provided instructions and came up with this card. I think it covers the pink requirement and showcases my Bombshell girl and also I can check off my first challenge for the SS exchange! :) The flap of the envelope part is held down with a velcro piece and the top piece actually tucks inside. You will have to forgive my bad photo. I have a camera MIA and had to scan. My scanner never seems to want to pick up my lightest copic pink either!

Here are all the stops on our hop...

Angie<-You are here.

Thanks so much for coming by today and have fun continuing on your blog hopping this Wonderful Wednesday!!

As always I would love to know what you think!

Christmas in April... Cards anyways!

I never made my quota on cards for March and I am a bit behind for April, but my goal is to catch up on those. I made 3 of these cards for my Apr cards. I followed a card from the front of one of my Cardmaker mags as a sketch guide. I was pretty happy with it.

Thanks for stopping by this Monday and as always I would love to know what you thinK!!

Thanks for all you do!

I am certainly no hockey coach, and so I wanted my DS to showe his appreciation to his coaches this year for his hockey team. We had the wind up on Sunday and he passed the coaches out cards. I just got an ice image off of the internet and printed it out as my background. I was pretty happy with the end result! You have to forgive the picture quality. My camera is MIA right now and I had to do my best to scan it...

Another Vintage Creation

I loved this image! I also used a smaller version on my DIVA challenge card for the beginning of April. I loved how it turned out and wanted to make another variation with a bigger image. This is the result! I love the vintage feel and the colors. I also used a rub on, which I have not done in quite a while.

Here is another card I made with some of the Magnolia images I received from Cabio. I just love this little girl! I think I will also make one that has a saying about kissing a lot of frogs before finding a prince or something! lol... I used stickles on her wings and colored her with copics. I am pretty happy with this card. I think it could use something but I didn't want to play and overdo it. Maybe I could have inked the edges of the image or something?? I am not sure.

Thanks for stopping in today! I am really making an effort not to lag this month in my blogging posts like I did last month. I would love to hear what you think!

See you soon!

I got a pad of DP from my Leprechaun - Kathy Curry - for the St. Patrick's Day RAK exchange last month and just re found it cleaning my stamping area. I loved the colors and was inspired right away to use it. I stamped out my newest Gorguss Girl stamp and got busy! I also used some stick on flowers. I colored the images with my new in color markers and I am just loving how this card turned out!

Bellarific Friday Challenge

I made this card for the bellarific Friday Challenge over at Da Bella herself posts challenges every Friday and this week was a sketch challenge. I used an image I received through Wish RAK at splitcoast stampers. I had a ton of fun making this card, and I love the new DP I got from SU! that I used for the first time on it.

Thanks so much for stopping in and as always I would love to know what you think!

Vintage, baby!!

Well, i am back to my usual more simple cards. I used another image I got off of this site. It has so many wonderful vintage images you can print off and use. I thought this baby was so cute and I have a friend who is due in a couple weeks. I am hoping this is generic enough in case they have a boy. I colored it with my copics and added these tiny buttons to finish it off. I also used my favorite ribbon - tafetta! I just love it!

So I think this turned out pretty cute. I am happy to send it off once my friend has her new little one.

I got an awesome surprise in the mail yesterday from my virtual friend Cabio!! It was 3 pages full of different Magnolia images! I was so excited I already colored 3 of them and can't wait to finish them up into cards! I did manage to make one up to start. I tried to switch up my usual style by some off layering and trimming out my image. I wanted it to look like she was sitting on the edge of the one layered section. I put in a birthday saying, forgetting I had the perfect saying that I had got from an SS in the fall. Oh well, I have another image of her so I will likely use it for another card.

Thanks so much for stopping in! I had fun making this card and would love to know what you think!

Vintage DIVA Challenge for April

This is the card I made for my DIVA blogging sisters April challenge. It was to use images pre WW2 vintage style. I found this image on a link Vicki provided:

I really struggled with this one and I am not sure why it gave me such a challenge! Vicki also challenged us to layer the image, so I popped up the girls hats. I stamped a friendship saying on the inside. I think it turned out OK, but I still think I want to try tackling this again.

Hoppy Easter!

This is one of the cards I made for my family for Easter. I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I am just putting up a quick post for you just because I am so behind!!

Thanks for stopping by!

This week I am going to post some of the Easter cards I have been working on. I again have lost track of time and suddenly it is over a week since I have posted! A lady at work wants to buy 5 of them and I need several so I have been working on a bunch and I will let her choose the ones she would like. This one is using Wagon Full of Fun. I used a knife to cut the slats out on the wagon and have it carrying a little egg.
