Yee Haw

Hello Bloggy Friends,
      Today is our last staying in shape challenge over at The Cuttlebug Spot. This weeks shape challenge is, stars. Here is my project...

Is this not the cutest card!? I bought this cut file from SVG Cuts, it's called "Happy Trails". I am not even into western stuff that much, but this is a must have file so many cute 3D objects and cards. I embossed the star using a Darice embossing folder and added some bling. I used some Chocolate Chip Timeless twine, to go around the hat after I inked it with Tim Holtz distress ink. My Sentiment is from the "Boy Crazy" stamp set by, My Pink Stamper. I can tell you one thing, my son will be having a cowboy themed birthday party, at one point in his life cause this would make a great invite !!
 I hope you all can find time to join in on the challenge and thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!!

"Happy Valentine's Day"

Hello Bloggy Friends,
     I am here with my second post for the day, can you believe it !? I am so excited to show you all this card!! I got my new Peachy Keen Stamps in the mail on Friday and I am finally getting to play with them. This set is so stinkin' cute, well who am kidding all of Peachy Keen Stamps are cute !! This week the challenge over at Peachy Keen is a sketch challenge, I will also be entering this into a couple other challenges. I will list them at the bottom of post. I rotated the sketch as you will notice in my photo. Here is the card I came up with.....
I am just loving how this card turned out, don't you!? My card base measures at  5.5x5.This card took me a little bit longer than most cards take me. I first cut the SVG file out of the bear using my Silhouette,then stamped the image. I colored this adorable Teddy with my Spectrum Noir markers. I added some glossy essentials to the eyes and the nose of my bear. The Ribbon is hand dyed by me,this is probably what took the most time to do. I added some Prima Roses and some glitter tape by American Crafts. You will also notice that I added a couple of heart stick pins and some glitter to the heart on my bear and heart in sentiment.
Challenges Entered:
Peachy Keen: 13-2 Sketch
Pause Dream Enjoy: Use Ribbon

Thank you all for stopping by

The little tag, is from My Craft Spot "Tiny Tags" along with both sentiments . The circle die is from Die-Namics, that I bought from my local craft store,"Memories for The Making".
