A Card For Me

I’ve been struggling with headaches everyday now for about 3 weeks. And today, this one just won’t go away. I went into my craft space to try and take my mind off the pain, and realized I haven’t entered the Chick Challenges With {ippity} yet this week! So I made a card following their sketch, and when I went to decide on the sentiment, I thought a Get Well one was fitting. For me anyway! I used three ippity sets on this one, Now and Always, Friends are Priceless, and How You Doin? Time to go link this up, and then lay down for awhile. Thank you for stopping by!


Clean and Simple {ippity}

The challenge theme this time over at the Unity Opportunity blog is CAS. So I got out my ippity stamps and made a quick anniversary card. I used 2 stamp sets, Just wanted to Say, and The Simple Things. I used Stampin Up markers on the flowers and stems, and the sentiment I inked with Gathered Twigs DI. Check out the link above if you’d like to enter, or just see more ippity creations! I finally broke down and bought a mini tripod for my camera. Yay! No more blurry pictures!! 🙂 Thanks so much for looking in!

Happy Tuesday to you all! The Fantabulous Cricut blog is celebrating their 100th Challenge Me Monday! They have a special color challenge to follow, the colors of their blog! How cool! Purple, Turquoise, and Green.

I am celebrating along with them this week, and made a card from the Give a Hoot cartridge that I just got. So many cute images on this cart. I’ll be using it often I’m sure! I made another scene card, and am really happy with this one! The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn. Come join the celebration!

Craft Stix and Stamp Storage video

Happy Monday everyone! I’ve made a quick video today! Although it took over 2 hours to upload to youtube! Goodness sake! Anyway, hope you enjoy! At the end of the video I forgot to mention that movie store DVD cases won’t work for stamp storage, already tried that. You can’t remove the CD insert, and some of them are a weird textured plastic, and the stamps won’t cling to them. Here it is:

The Greeting Farm

Hello everyone! We have two sponsors this week at 2 Sister’s Challenge Blog!  The Greeting Farm, and The Digi Garden! The theme is Anything Goes!! I have used a Greeting Farm image called Huey Birdhouse. I think he’s too cute building the birdhouse and all! The first one is colored with markers(roseart and stampin up) and made him into a fox. The second card is colored with watercolor pencils, and I made him into a skunk! I’m pretty sure he’s a fox, but he makes an awfully cute skunk too!! Go check out the challenge blog, I’d love for you to enter!!

It’s Friends With Flair Day!

Happy Friday! It’s time for Unity’s FWF! I got a head start this time around, and made this tag last night. I used the Simple Stories itty bitty Year o graphy Best Day. I masked off the calender and inked around it, love how it pops off the tag! I just wish my picture taking skills were just as good! I have a nice Nikon camera, but just can’t get a good pic, there are so many settings on the thing, it drives me crazy!! Anyway, The stamped flowers and sentiment are from the ippity line, and the punched flowers have two coats of UTEE on them. I’ll keep this tag for my Mom’s birthday. Thank you for stopping in, enjoy the rest of the FWF!!

A Scene

This is my first real attempt at making a scene on a card. I’ve seen some really cute one’s around blogland, and thought I’d give it a try. Over at the Lawnscaping Challenge, the theme is distress mania. To distress your project any way to see fit. Mine is done with inks. Every image I used Distress Inks on, and the blue card base is distressed as well. Lawnscaping Challenge is based on Lawn Fawn Stamps, but not required to enter. I used 5 different Lawn Fawn sets on my little scenery card. Critters in the Forest, Critters on the Farm, Critters in the Snow, Bannerific, and Jessie’s ABC’s. It was really fun cutting out all the little animals and arranging them. Everything is stamped on patterned paper except the banner. Check out the link above if you’d like to join in the fun! Lawn Fawn is sponsoring the challenge this time, and is giving away a free stamp set! Yay!
