Plant one on me!

Happy Memorial Day to all my bloggy friends, I hope all had a fun and safe holiday!! I want to do a HUGE shout out to all the past and present military, we would not be where we are if it weren't for you, so thank you!!
    I am here to show you a card I made a while back but haven't gotten around to sharing it. Last month I won the monthly giveaway over at Peachy Keen stamps. This card I made using a set of stamps that I had chosen as party of my prize.
This is one of there older stamp sets but I just love them. This stamp set is titled PK-229 Funny Flowers. I got the sentiment from my PKSC-16 April 2013 set. My patterned paper is by American Crafts 6x6 paperpad, Dear Lizzy. I finished it up by adding some hand dyed crinkle ribbon, prima flowers, stick pin & of course some of my favorite twine by Timeless Twine, Lemonade Yellow. I colored my sweet little image using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I hope all enjoy my sweet little card. Thank you all for stopping by and hope you have a fantastic night!!

Hello and happy Wednesday to all of my bloggy friends. We are finally to the middle of the week, and that means it's a DT day for PPPR!!
Most of you know that, I'm a pretty silly person so this card that I made is right up my alley.
I just love how it turned out.
For my card I used: Flower Faces & Layered Labels 2, cutting files
Flower Faces Cutting FilesLayered Labels 2 Cutting FilesI just think that these little flowers Lisa created are just perfect!!
I paired this sweet little flower with some Peachy Keen Stamps, I used the face from my March 2013 PKSC kit and the sentiment came from the April 2013 PKSC kit. All my patterned papers are by American Crafts and solids are DCWV. Of course no card is complete without some embellishment, I used some yummy Lemonade yellow: Timeless twine, two stick pins, pearls & a button all from my stash. So what do you all think!? If you are interested in any of the files I used for this card, just click on the names and they will bring you directly to the store. Make sure you stop back by my blog at 8:00am I will be back with a 2nd post for the day!!

FCCB DT Post: Challenge #161- Oh Baby

Hello all my bloggy friends. I hope every one's Monday gets off to a great start!? It's my group's turn to post over at FCCB. This weeks challenge is to create a project for a new baby. Since cards are what I enjoy doing that's what I went with.
I used my Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge on this card for my mat. My sweet little baby came from a Peachy Keen Stamp set called "Hey Baby", I colored her in using my Spectrum Noirs and paper pieced her outfit and headband. I added some little pearls to her outfit and also to her ears for earrings. My sentiment came from a My Pink Stamper baby set. I finished it up by adding some ribbon and some prima roses. I also used some of my favorite twine by Timeless Twine in Bubble Gum Pink. I hope you will all be able to find time to join in on this weeks challenge!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

PPPR DT Post: Life is Good

Happy Wednesday everyone, I have the day off today so I plan on getting some crafting done, if my little peanut allows it. This will be 1 of 2 post for me today, I will be back at 8:00am CST for my second post. I just love how this one turned out!!  
Here is the card I made .....
for my card I used the "Happy Rainbow" cutting file.
Happy Rainbow Cutting Files
I decided not to cut the faces, because I knew I wanted to use a Peachy Keen Face, from the April SOMK. This card was definitely a little time consuming, I individually glued all the sequences down using glossy accents. I added some diamond dust stickles to my clouds, just look at them sparkle! I randomly added some rhinestones, embossed the background and added some Cherry Red, Timeless Twine to finish it up!! I Hope you all like it? Make sure to stop by later to see my other creation.
Have a happy and cheerful Wednesday!!

 Other items used include:
My Pink Stamper: Happy Occasions Stamp set
Natural Bakers Twine: By Timeless Twine
Hand Died Crinkle Ribbon
Brown Prima Rose
Red Pearls
Chicken Wire Embossing Folder
Googly Eye
Crate Paper: Wood Grain Paper

Peachy Keen Challenge 13-17 :: Sketch Challenge

Hello my sweet crafty friends!! It's Wednesday, and once again I am pushing it close to get my card entered into the challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps. So I am going to keep it short and sweet and show you my card.
I tried to keep as close to the sketch as possible. I used my PKS February SOMK 2013 to stamp my sweet little images and sentiment. I colored the background and images using my Spectrum Noirs.
I added some Graphite Gray, Timeless Twine, around the scalloped circle and added a little bow with a button. Other things I used are Glossy accents, star dust stickles, cuttlebug embossing folder & blue rhinestones. I hope you all like my card and thanks for stopping by and taking a peak at it!!
