Chocolate Cow

That’s what I used to tell my son where chocolate milk came from, a chocolate cow! He would laugh. This is my DT card for 2 Sister’s Challenge Blog. Our theme this week is Birthday Fun, and our sponsor is Digital Delights, and I used an image called Claudia Cow. I colored her in with my new Pro Markers, which I am loving! I just need to get their bleedproof paper now! But this one isn’t too bad, has almost a watercolor look! The papers are from Lily Bee Designs, and the sentiment is from an {ippity} set. Hope you’ll join us this week! Thanks for looking in!


Mornin’ Sunshine!

It’s so nice to have the warm sunshine in the morning again! That is one reason why I used this {ippity} set called Farm Fresh for my DT card at Get Hippity with Ippity! Our theme is Things with Wings, and although the chicken isn’t as pretty as a butterfly, she’s still cute! Plus, my son loves my MIL’s chickens that she has, and always tries to catch one when he’s there! These are perfect down on the farm stamps, with a tractor and barn and other fun stamps to go along. I stamped my image and die cut it with a Spellbinders die, and stamped another chicken from patterned paper. All from DCWV. I wanted some type of sun rays, so I added some vintage rick rack around the top. There are only a few days left to enter this challenge! Check the links above to enter, or purchase this cute set from our {ippity} chick Aletha!

Envelope Card

I found this fun criss cross envelope card tutorial on youtube, and Cheri who is sponsoring this week’s Chick Challenges {with ippity} has made one herself. It’s very simple to do, and I love that it is something different than your ordinary card. I left the pull out card open for writing a little note. I used 2 Ippity sets on this one, Now and Always(my favorite!) and the sentiment from Regal Greetings. The pretty papers are from Pink Paislee, and an Ek Success and Martha Stewart border punches. Thanks for looking in!

Mini Album

I decided to do another page of my mini album for the Lawnscaping Challenge this week. The theme is Inspired By, which you are to make something inspired by another. I am always inspired by Eva Doblias. I love her style, color choices, and ability to layer wonderfully! Click here to see what I chose to from her as inspiration. When I saw her card, I knew I could use alot of Lawn Fawn’s cute bird stamps, as well as the pine tree for my page. I always have to remember to leave a spot open for pictures! Which I will add ones of my husband and son later. I used 5 different Lawn Fawn sets on this page, which are listed below, as well as the papers used. Lawn Fawn is the sponsor this week, and are giving away a free stamp set!! I know I have a few on my wish list! Thank you for visiting!!
Materials used: Lawn Fawn sets: Jessie’s ABC’s, My Silly Valentine, Critters on the Farm, Critters in the Forest, Bannerific. Papers from: Pink Paislee, Lily Bee Designs, Basic Grey. Music note stamp from Unity Stamp Co. Memento and Ranger inks.

Little Bunny

Happy Saturday everyone! Time for another challenge at the 2 Sister’s Challenge Blog! Our theme this week is Spring, and we have 2 sponsors, The Digi Garden and The Crafting Boutique. My image is From The Crafting Boutique and is called Hello. What a sweet little bunny he is! He’s colored with my pencils with some green and blue chalk for the background. Martha Stewart leaf border punch and Stampin Up punches were used. My new Stampin Up lines embossing folder, flowers from my stash, and Cosmo Cricket paper. Come join us this week, since we have 2 sponsors, there will be 2 winners!!

Happy Anniversary!

I made this card for my husband for our 5th wedding anniversary today! Yesterday we both thought it was our 6th! lol Shows how much we pay attention! I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at Chick Challenges {with ippity} I used quite a few Unity and Ippity stamp sets on this one. The large heart is from ippity’s Loads of Love, and the small heart is from ippity’s House a Home. The label stamp is from a Simple Stories itty bitty from Unity, and the sentiment I got from a Unity grab bag. Papers are Pink Paislee, and embellishments from my stash. Hope he likes it!

Paper Piecing

That is the theme this month at the Flashback Friday Challenges. This was my first paper pieced card that I posted just a little over a year ago. You can see the original post here. I used my favorite ippity set Now and Always, and pieced these flowers at the bottom. It’s hard to tell in the pic, but they are layered with foam tape for dimension. Go enter this fun challenge yourself!! There is a $15.00 gift certificate from Paper and Such online store as the prize!!
