New Baby Boy Tag w/NJC

Not Just Cards badge

It’s time for a new challenge over at Not Just Cards!  As always, anything goes!!  I got to play with this cute image, “Mom Loves You” by MilkCoffee.

IMG_2602

So initially, I wanted to make a tag and put it on a gift for Jʻs cousinʻs baby shower… they were due with a boy in April.  WERE.  haha.  He decided to come a few days ago instead (happy and healthy btw!!)  so this is still going on a gift for them but now really for a baby and not a shower!!  haha.

Swing by the challenge… there’s a ton of wonderfully generous sponsors which means tons of prizes to win!!

Puppy Love w/FAE

header



I’m blogging over at Faery Ink today!!  First off, HOW CUTE IS THIS COUPLE??  This is “Arielle and Ian Puppy Love” and I LOVE THEM!!!  haha.  And I realized while coloring up this image that I absolutely love coloring jeans.  And guy shirts.  Maybe it’s just a guy thing… maybe I just like coloring guys because to me, they’re so much easier to color up!

That’s it for today, I am off to bed so I can get up early to finish up cleaning… we’re hosting my grandmother’s 94th birthday dinner tonight!!

Magical Mousey Birthday w/WD

 

Whimsie Doodles Banner

I’m blogging over at Whimsie Doodles today!!  Itʻs been over 2 years since we last went on a trip and Iʻm getting a little bit of a traveling itch!!  Can you tell where Iʻm itching to go???  But Iʻm not sure how I feel about the rate raise… if I heard correctly itʻs $99 per person (10-yo+) per day so for us thatʻs $400 per day.  YIKES!!  And then when Baby Z is old enough to need his own ticket… TRIPLE YIKES!!!

IMG_2595

Anywhoo… I was happy to play with this super cute image, Balloon Lizzie, and knew I wanted to pair her with some paper from a Disney stack… but didnʻt want to be overwhelmed with mouse ears, so this stripey paper was perfect!!

Hope everyoneʻs having a wonderful weekend!  Can you believe itʻs the end of the month already?!?  February just flew by in a wink!!

Love Spells w/FAE

It’s time for a new Faery Ink Facebook Challenge!!  This month’s challenge is “Sparkle, Shimmer, and Shine!”  I chose to work with this image, “Bella Love Spells” and chose her because I wanted to color up her smoke wisps and bubbles!!!  haha.  And yes, I made this when I was in my ‘Valentines EVERYTHING’ mode.  But it’s not too Valentines-y is it?? haha.

Hope you come join us over on FB… it’s always a fun challenge!!

Up in the Air w/OMF


OpenMindedCraftingCharmTitle_zps4b5c5f42

It’s the second week of our current challenge over at Open Minded Fun Crafting Challenges!  The theme this challenge is “Up in the Air”.

I was fortunate to play with this beautiful image from A Day for Daisies, Dragon Gifts.  Where’s my pet dragon to bring me flowers??  I have 3 stinky boys, so I guess that’s a good enough trade off!!  haha.

IMG_2533

Do you recognize those cloud clumps??  haha.  It was from my mess-up sheet… I cut the paper I stamped on much bigger than I intended and couldn’t trim it down without cutting off words and too much cloud… so instead I put it aside thinking I could use it for something else… and I did!!  haha.

Swing by the challenge… there’s a ton of wonderfully generous sponsors which means tons of prizes to win!!

I have to make it a short post today… I am determined to enjoy my weekend and get over the mess that this past week has been!!  So that means time with the hubs and the kiddos and getting out of the house and taking a breather!!  Happy Saturday, friends!

Date Change for AOLP!!

AOLP banner

It’s a new month over at Anya, Oddies & Others Linky Party!!  I know we’ve been launching our new link-ups on the 1st of the month but since there are so many different challenges/new releases that happen at the beginning of the month, we’ve changed our link-ups to start on the 20th of the month!  So you will have until March 20th to link up!!  This month I stuck with just one card… lol.  This is Blossom Love by Jillibean Soup by (for?) Unity Stamps.  It’s an old set I got on clearance ages and ages ago before I knew what I was going to do with it!!  It was just too cute and I had to get it!!

Unity’s options: color blue, sentiment, wood embellishment, ribbon.

IMG_2530

 

I went with just the blue and sentiment options this month.  It was hard to find motivation to craft this week… it’s been a rough one!!  These are 2 separate cloud stamps – I used the masking technique again to clump them together!  And whoops again for the crooked sentiment!  I forgot the word “gray” hangs lower than the rest of its line and tried to make the stamp itself straight when I was stamping… haha.  Now I know!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!  It’s cold and rainy here in Hawaii but it sure beats the hot and muggy we’ve been having, and I wouldn’t trade it for the snow and blizzards some of you are having out there!!  Stay warm!!  See you soon!!!

Giraffe for All Occasions w/CCM

CCM_Badge_May2013

I have a card to share today for ChiChi Memories!!  This is “Cute Giraffe,” another super cute animal from the latest release.  This little guy is super cute and so perfect for a lot of different occasions… I can see him on a baby card, a birthday card, and so much more!!  Even the card I made was supposed to be occasion-neutral!

IMG_2377

 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you’re having a wonderful week!!  On another note, today is Big A’s 11th birthday… I cannot believe my baby is 11… and I cannot believe that I am old enough to have an 11-year-old!!! haha!!!  We will be off celebrating!!!

Pool Fun w/OMF


OpenMindedCraftingCharmTitle_zps4b5c5f42

It’s the second week of our current challenge over at Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges!  The theme this challenge is “No Pink or Red”.

This challenge we’re sponsored by:

This was a super fun challenge, as I am slowly but surely getting pink/red/Valentines’d out!!  I got to play with an image from Bugaboo this time… can I just say that they are one of my all-time favorite digi companies?  Not only are their images super cute, but they’re easy and FUN to color!!  It’s a nice break from some of these gorgeously intricate and detailed digis!!!  This is Summertime Peekers – Swimming Pool.  We are just WAITING for the weather to warm up so we can get back into our pool!  Big thanks to the hubs for cleaning the pool and keeping it swim-ready for us!!  And those buttons are ORANGE.  They look kinda red but they’re just a dark shade of orange… the picture doesn’t show their real colors!
