Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! I had a lot of fun with Halloweenies on this card. I was inspired by my friend Heather's card HERE . I've been busy downsizing and moving my craft room in prepration for the new little guy on the way. Now I have a craft center perfect for me and my kids! Love it! Lots of cards on the way...

A Bunch of Apples

Happy Monday! I haven't participated in a Hero Arts challenge in FOREVER but I love love working with sketches so I had to jump back in the fun this week. The sketch I used was square but I decided to centered the sketch on a standard size card. I paired a few of my favorite Hero Arts stamps together ( Graph Background  & Four Apples ) and am happy to have a teacher card ready to go!

Sugar Rush for Boys

Hi Everyone! Well, I told you I made a lot of cards using the Paper Smooches Sugar Rush stamp set, right? Here is the last one I'll be sharing for awhile. :) This time I put a boyish spin on things. Although this could easily go to a female I thought I should have at least one birthday card in my stash with no pink in it. ;) Off to get a little crafty tonight...

Celebrate Your Day!

Hi Everyone! This is a card I created for the last Paper Crafts call that wasn't accepted. I think this is one of the first cards I've created using my Silhouette. It was long overdue and so fun! One of the best things about creating for magazine calls is the way it gets my brain moving in a new direction. Love that! The Silhouette image I used was Woman's Profile by Hero Arts. The sentiment is from Signature Greetings by Papertrey Ink. Thanks for stopping by today!

Sparks Challenge

Happy Sunday! I'm really enjoying the Sparks challenges over on the Paper Smooches challenge blog HERE . This weeks inspiration photo was this sweet Etsy onsie. My two cards again take two different inspiring elements of the picture. The first card uses Perpetual Bliss and Sentiment Sampler . I loved the little pop of green in the inspiration photo and tried to carry on to my card. For my second card I took those super cute pink ruffles on the onsie and added a few scallop rows to my card. I really love the way this one turned out! Thats why these photos are so fun! The stamps I used in this card are from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler  and Sugar Rush . Thanks for the fun challenge Kim!
