  2.  Dies: stitched circle (My Favorite Things), fish (Fintastic, Lawn Fawn).
  3.  Stamps: fish (Fintastic, Lawn Fawn), sentiment (Summer Grumplings, Taylored Expressions)
  4.  Paper: wave cardstock (Sunkissed 6x6 pad, GCD Studio).

U is for Umbrella






 Woo Hoo! Today I'm a guest designer at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge this time is "U is for Umbrellas". Since I love making funny cards, I came up with this idea-





When given the challenge, my first thought was of umbrella drinks-hmmm, maybe I shouldn't admit that? I cut this Pina Colada with my Cricut (Mixed Drinks) with scraps of cardstock from my stash, and added the sentiment from Artistic Impressions Wine Diva's set. The background paper was from my stash, and have no idea who it is from.

This will make a great birthday card for one of my girlfriends.

Have a great day!

Hello! Today is my Spotlight day at Kitty Bee Designs, and here is my project-

  1. Image: Cow Barely Over The Moon (Kitty Bee Designs), colored with Copics.
  2. Stamp: sentiment (Viva Las Vegas Stamps), Versafine Black Onyx ink.
  3. Dies: stars (Spellbinders Star Five, Spellbinders Star Circles).
  4. Paper: silver mirror cs, Strathmore watercolor paper.
  5. Other: Friskit.
Thank you for visiting!

Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Zig Zag Challenge

At the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, its a Zig Zag Challenge!

Here is my project I'm entering-


 So, I dug through mountains (OK, mole hills) of papers and found this cool cardstock out of the White Ginger DCWV paper pad. The lady is from Artistic Impression Wine Diva set, colored with Copics (I even made her dress Zig Zag!). The sentiment is from Artistic Impression also, but a stand alone stamp. I used MFT stitched rectangles and fishtail banners for the image and sentiment. I even found some ric-rac in one of my sewing stashes!

This will go to a friend who is having a hard time aging, from her friend who is having a hard time losing weight! LOL.

Thanks for visiting!

DT Spotlight at Kitty Bee Designs

Hello! Today is my Spotlight day at Kitty Bee Designs, and here is my project-


I just love this pup! I've used this image so many different times, but everyone has been different!

Here is a list of materials I used for this card-
Paper: Cosmo Cricket (OLLLDDD!) My New Years Resolution is to use up my patterned paper, or donate it to a good cause.
Image: Cupcake Suprise, Kitty Bee Designs, colored with Copics.
Dies: stitched inside out ovals (My Favorite Things), woof (Little B).

The "woof" sentiment was cut three times and layered to give more dimension. The red panel was also popped up to add interest.

Thanks for visiting!

At Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, this weeks challenge is "Farm Life". Here is a card I made:



In a couple of months, I will be helping a friend of mine show her Murray Gray cattle regional cow shows. The Murray Grays are really dark gray with beautiful dapples. They produce more meat on the hoof, on 1/3 of a normal cow ration! I've made a couple of these for her to use when she needs a Thank you card. The whole card was actually inspired by the tiny cowbells I found in a drawer! Here is the recipe:

  1. Country Life Cartridge-countryside (cut at 3"), cow (cut at 3 3/4")
  2. Artiste Cartridge-clouds (cut at 1 1/2" & 3/4"). I printed the sentiment (Drygulf font) onto white cardstock, then used the Center Point feature to cut the large Cloud.
  3. Tie twine around cowbell, then attach to back of cow die cut.
I really like this card-I hope she does too!
