She looks so happy and so warm with that humongous scarf around her neck… I wish I was that happy and warm!!! haha.  I mean, it is pretty warm now that it’s summer, so that just makes me wish for the cold weather again!!  And I figure it’s never too soon to start on the Christmas/holiday cards… I’ll be ready for the holidays this year!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Come check out the challenge!!

May New Release w/WD

Whimsie Doodles Banner

It’s new release time at Whimsie Doodles!!  There are so many SUPER CUTE new releases this month… no surprise though, everything Melyssa draws is adorable!!!  I chose to use one of the new Unicorns digis… Unicorn Leaping in the Unicorns set on the What’s New page of the store!!

WhimisieDoodles-UnicornLeaping-kelAThis one is super simple… I wanted to stick with solid colors because I really couldn’t pair it with a PP that I liked.  And I think I like that he stands out… I popped him up on 3D dots to make it really look like he’s flying!!!

I am sorely lacking in mojo recently… I just took my Korean Language final yesterday and am starting to unwind for summer break.  Woo-hoo to that!!  I mean, I still have a ridiculous class load with my summer school classes but they’re all online, and my ASUH (Student Government) stuff will be pretty much on hold until the end of the summer, so I’m totally looking forward to that and getting back into the more fun crafty things!!  Big plans including moving all my stuff around in the room and doing an end-of-July purge to kick-start my online store… it’s FINALLY getting done and I will definitely have it up and running soon!!  In the process of adding more stuff and making it pretty.  Although by ‘pretty’ I really mean ‘pretty simple’ because I am not that knowledgeable with my computer techie skills!!

Have a wonderful weekend… I know I will!! haha.

Beary Best w/SwS

ss-2016-logo

SweetStamps-BearyBest-kelA-WM

This is the Beary Best clear stamp set in the Sweet Stamps store.  He is just too cute.  I wanted to keep this card on the masculine side so decided to keep it really simple and without a lot of patterns or embellishments.. just a simple baker’s twine  bow around some solid colored banners to keep it all together!!

Thanks for stopping by today, hope to see you again soon!

It’s A Boy CAS w/D2BA

weblogolabel

I’m blogging over at the Dare 2B Artzy Blog today, sharing with you a super simple CAS baby card.

For this card, I’m using the “It’s a Boy” sentiment from the Twinkle Lil Stars clear set and papers from the Artzy Doodles Variety Paper Pack (the light blue paper).

Dare2BArtzy-TwinkleLittleStars-BoyCASFlags-kelA

I used an off-white background for this card… I wanted it to stand out against the white base but not by too much!!  Super simple but oh so cute!!  I think I need to try this again with some girly colors and make a baby girl card next!!  haha!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Hope to see you again soon!!

Cute Bugs Midway w/SD

sd challenge badge

It’s time for the mid-way reminder for the current Scribbles Designs Challenge!!  The theme this month is Cute Bugs and I stuck with the bee theme this month lol!!  This beauty is #648 – Heart Tulips in the  Scribbles Designs Store.

ScribblesDesigns-648-HeartTulips-kelA

I think 95% of the time I make cards, I color first and then find paper to match after.  Sometimes I have papers in mind when I’m coloring but most times I just color what I think works in my mind.  And I definitely thought that this red and yellow color scheme would be perfect and easy to match BUT IT WAS SO HARD!!!! hahaha!!!  I really struggled with this one, but luckily I found this scrap paper in my stash.  Happy when things come together!!

Hope to see you in the challenge, see you again soon!!

Sketch #410 w/SkSat

Sketch Saturday

It’s time for a new challenge over at Sketch Saturday!  This week we’re working with sketch #410… but it’s actually a 5th week Saturday of the month so that means you can choose to use any previous sketch between #215-409!!  Oh and this week, we’re sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.

I chose to play with sketch #380 this week, here’s the Sketch…
380

…and here’s my take on it!  I got to play with Critter Balloons – Dog by Bugaboo.

SketchSaturday-410-Sketch380-Bugaboo-DogBalloon-kelA

I flipped the sketch around on accident actually… I traced a line on the backside of the stripe paper to cut the angle… completely forgetting that when I flipped the paper back over it would reverse it.  Whoops!! haha!! But it still came out super cute, I love this little pup!!

Hope you come play along with us this week!!

StarStampz-Snowflake-kelA

She was so pretty.  I wanted to give her some super pretty blue hair and am really happy with how it came out… I’ve never tried to do this kind of a blue hair combo before!!

Hope you come join in the challenge!!!

Bear Hugs #2! w/OAK

OakTree Header

I’m blogging over at the Oak Tree Stamps Blog today!!  This is another card using the Bear Hugs clear set in the Oak Tree Stamps store!!

OakTreeStamps-BearHugsClear-Diagonal-kelA

This time I went with a more subdued color scheme… I just adore the teal and brown color combo!!  Hmmm… I might remake this one with a baby sentiment… I think that would be super cute too!!

And if you remember, a couple weeks ago I posted another card using this Bear Hugs clear set and mentioned that I was going to restart one of my blog series-es-es “What It’s Worth” where I make as many cards as a stamp set is worth, each card = $1.  So this is officially card #2!  Whee!!  I’m on a roll!!  haha.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!!
