Tent Topper Card

Todays sketch challenge was to make a tent topper card.

The base of my card is 4.25 x 4.25. This will fit in our standard envelopes.

This is Fixafella. Isn't he cute? I'm going to give this card to my brother for helping out with some stuff around my house.

The card base is out of Bashfull Blue SU! Cardstalk. The dp is from MME!!

I used my Primacolor Pencils and Gamsol to color him in!

I think its cute!! I hope he likes it!

Fabulous Pink Olives

Todays color challenge was to use Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, and Regal Rose. Piece of cake if you ask me!! I loved this combo. I decided that I wanted to pull out Fabulous Flowers since I haven't used it yet. Isn't this set awesome?? I love it! I have been thinking about this layout for a couple of days. I seem to be really liking to panel lately. I used my dauber to ink up all the edges. The flower is layered 3 times.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday. Its 4:30 am here. So I will now go back to bed, lol.

Gotta brag for a bit.....

So I've been sooo excited this week that my landscaping is just about DONE!!!! With everything that is going on right now its really calming and nice to know that I'm able to get my landscaping done. It isn't cheep WOW!! Thank god I have the best daddy in the world to help me!!! Its not done yet, but since everyone is gone today and the plants were just planted I had to show it off to my stamper friends!

When I designed my house I just KNEW I had to have a courtyard. I always wanted a grand entrance to my house full of flowers and beauty. Well that isn't so easy in the desert so I thought If I build a courtyard around the front of my house it would help with rabbits, etc.

Here is stepping outside into the courtyard from my front door!

This is my front yard looking at the courtyard. The sod is suppose to be delivered Monday morning at 4 am I believe. Then the rock will be delivered Tuesday. The rock is going to go from the sod to the street!

I special ordered two palm tree plants that should be in next week to go into the two planters that you see here!! Ahhh I can't wait! I'm soooo EXCITED!!!!!

Inspiration Card

Todays Inspiration Challenge was awesome. I got to use TWO of my new sets. Priceless and So Many Sayings (I can tell I'm gonna use this one ALOT). The colors I used were SU! Bravo Burgundy, Regal Rose, and Whisper White. I used my window punch to make the tags.

Thanks for looking!

NO embelishments WHAT???

Toady's limited supply challenge we had to use Monocromatic colors, but NO embellishments. This was so hard for me!!! It turned out to be a simplicity card which is good. I'm gonna give this to T. He's a simple guy!!!

I used Taken with Teal, Cool Caribbean, and Night of Navy SU! Cardstock. The set I used is from So Many Sayings! I love this set!!!! I used my SU! Window punch for the "missing you" and the "so much"

Thanks for looking!! TGIF!!


Toady's challenge was to decorate your corners. With the new SU! Photo Corner punch coming out I just knew I had to use it!!! I then added a brad to the center. The flower is from Stampendous!-Fresh Bloom. I colored the flower in with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I used Riveting for the Enjoy Your Day sentiment and punched it out with the 1-1/4" punch. I then attached it to the Designer Label Punch out.

I used Pixie Pink, Temping Turquoise, and Apricot Appeal SU! Cardstock. The dp is from MME.

I used my corner punch for the scallop edge. I then pierced each edge!!

Thanks for looking!!!

Sketch Challenge.....Revised

So I was totally bummed when I saw the sketch challenge today. I so need to get something that cuts circles for me! I have an oval one, but it SUCKS! LOL. Anyways, I still wanted to take a try at the challenge so I decided I would just use a flower instead of a circle! Hope thats okay.....

The flowers are from Big Blossom. The dp is MME!!

I misplaced my camera charger!!! ECCCK!! I had to scan it!! Its looks way better in real life, but what can I do!!

My dad is the BEST!

So here lately, my dad has been coming over and fixing some stuff for me. My dad built my house so I owe him a lot for it!! I'm so thankful to have the best dad around. He's got a real heart. He comes over almost everyday to check on me and make sure the house is doing okay. Even though I tell him everyday I love him and thank him for everything he does for me I thought I should make him a card. I try to stay away from this though because he tends to cry, lol.

Anyways, todays color challenge was to use, Real Red, Temping Turquoise and Green Galore! The set I used is called Power Up! Its perfect for my dad!!! The sentiment is from Curvy Verses.

New SU! Cake ATC Swap

Background Paper Stripes!

WOW I posted two days in a row!! hahah!! I know my schedule has been a little off lately, so I haven't been all stamp crazy like I was. I am going to try my hardest to get back in gear!

Here is a fast card I worked on yesterday during my lunch break. (see I am trying) The challenge was to use scrap paper and make a stripped background. I dug in my scrap basket and pulled out some Petal and Paisley dp and Office O dp! I cut the Petal and Paisley dp in 1/4" strips and glued them on to the OO dp!

Vases in Vogue

Here is a card I made for the ribbon challenge on SCS. I love this new Hostess set! There are so many different ways to use it.

The colors I used were Apricot Appeal, Regal Rose, Basic Black, and Whisper White. The ribbon is Rose. I put a brad in the middle of the flower. The flower is colored in with primacolor pencils. The vase was cut out from Apricot Appeal CS and put on with a dimensional. I used a paper tagger for the take care sentiment.

I love the way this turned out. I think I may use this card for an upcoming swap.
