Happy Saturday!  I sure hope you are enjoying your weekend and have some time for a bit of crafting.  This bit of crafting I made for my sweetie to give to his daughter for her birthday.  A fun one to make I might add!  I cut out the basic shape layers with my Cricut, the decorations on the front were cut with my Cuttlebug, then I added the flowers made from paper punches, the ribbon, pearly centers to the flowers.  I also inked all the edges because I thought it needed a bit more zip.  It is held shut by a small piece of velcro.

Welcome all. The very 1st thing I HAVE to tell you is that this card is a TOTAL COPY CAT! My blog friend, the VERY talented Tammy, at My Craft Central did this card and I fell in love with it. SEE IT HERE! It was absolutely PERFECT in my opinion! From the layout, image, coloring and sentiments I don't think anyone could have done a more FAB job!
I had a birthday card to make today and my mojo just wasn't working. I started thinking of things I have seen to get some inspirations and all I could see was THIS card. So I copied it and give full credit to Tammy for saving the day for me! I changed the color and the flowers are different, but it is all HER design. THANX again Tammy, 
your work is the BEST!

I love this image!  I bought it a while back and never took the time to use it.  Recently I made an online purchase of some crafting goodies and the merchant sent along a couple free goodies - don't you just love that!  One of them was this cute little stamp that says Hat-i-tude.  Of course I immediately thought of my hat stamp.  I got it out and weny right to work.  Tthis is the result.  It is colored with my Copic's, used a Nestabilities for the background frame, added a few gems and a feather.

Hope you find some time for crafting this weekend, enjoy whatever you do!

Time for another great challenge at CC&CC!  This time we are using the theme "Sweet Treats!  That covers a lot of territory and ideas.  So join in and show us your sweets!

My card is done with an adorable image given to me by this weeks sponsors, Milk Coffee and is called Charlotte and Her Strawberry Pudding.  I did an easel card.  It is colored with my Copic's, I used a Nestabilites called Beaded Squares for the background frame cut with my Cuttlebug and added some flowers and gems.

Sure hope you join us for this fun challenge.  I'm looking forward to seeing your great creation!

Aloha all!  I have been finding some time to get some card making done, hooray!  I sure miss my crafting time when life gets busy!  I did this card for a friend using a set of new stamps I purchased from Sparkle and Sprinkle.  Their stamps are really high quality.  So sharp and crisp when stamped.  This one was so much fun to color (using Copic's), though I must admit I was getting tired of coloring grapes, lol!

Hope you are doing well, and thanx so much for stopping by!

Hello!  Sorry I haven't been posting much lately, or visiting my blog friends (bad me), but Paul arrived from Hawaii and we have has so much to catch up on things we have been doing.  It's so good to have him here with me.  We took a drive up to Flagstaff yesterday just for fun and looking around.  We went to a great outdoor farmer's market and got lots of yummy goodies, a sweets and candy shop ~ more yummy goodies, and some other fun shopping.  Believe it or not, he is a man who LIKES to shop!  This pic is in a field of wild flowers that were blooming in the forest.

Now on to today's creation.  I bought a pretty bar of soap for a friend while on our jaunt and wanted to make a pillow box to put it in.  She loves ladybugs, and the soap had a ladybug design in it, so I came up with this design.

Thanx so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a great week!
