Blessed Week

I'm having such a blessed week! :) Yesterday, I received a cute RAK in the mail:

It is from Sandy from Scribbles by Sandy. :) She is such a sweetheart!  She said she saw the Hello Kitty stickers and had to get them for me. What a great happy mail day! Thank you so much, Sandy!  If you haven't heard of Sandy, she is an AWESOME artist and has her own line of digis.  Check her out! I used her work on THIS CARD here. 

Another cool thing was I won a Krafty Kreation award from The Krafty Girls! What an honor!  I won a shiny new badge for my side bar. :) I love those!  My STEAMPUNK CARD won that one. :)

I also have MORE news! :) But that's going to have to wait until later. :)

Thank you all my bloggy friends for supporting me every step of the way.  Love you all!

Entering this into the following challenges:
Simon Says - Sporty or Patriotic

Saturday Stampin Class!

On Saturday I had my 1st June Stampin Class (this Saturday is my 2nd!).  I have to split my classes into two because I live in a tiny place and my dining table can only house 4 people.  Just wanted to show you the pictures cause we made a lot of cute stuff! 

Me and my gal pals.  That's my bestie on the left. :) First time crafting for her.

We made a simple 2-4-6-8 box.  Filled with chocolates, of course!

More candy! LOVE these cello bags from SU!

We watercolored a bit and did the crinkle ribbon thing...

This CAS card gets a ka-pow! with the super 3D flower.

Something a little more masculine so that gals could use it as a Father's Day card, if they wanted.

So that's it for the Saturday Stampin Class!  I'll post more pictures for the next one. :) 'Till next time!

Steampunk Birthday Card

I've had Lady Victoria by Kenny K in my files for eons now and I've kinda forgotten about her... until one of my friends asked me if I knew what "steampunk" was last week! LOL! It instantly made me want to her color her and put her on a card and think of all things steampunk!

Lots of distressing with my Tim Holtz distressing tool, ink and stamp by SU, gold embossing powder (birthday stamp, polka dots stamped on background), torn lace, staples, brad, and grommet eyelet.  The cajun colored piece also has flocked circles.  And hooray, all of these papers were in my scrap stash! 

Inked her up with Copics.  Added Crystal effects to her boots, her goggles, and the "glass piece" on her cane.  

Entering this in the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Love to Create - Recycled (the lace is torn from dress trim)

Simple Stampin Up Father's Day Cards

I've been having a hard time sleeping lately.  I go to sleep super, super late and then I wake up super, super late.  It messes everything up!  I really need to keep busy during the summer so this doesn't happen, because my body goes a little haywire when I'm not at work.  Any falling asleep tricks you guys have?

Anywho, all these masculine card challenges made me realize that I better get crackin' on Father's Day cards!  While in my zombie-insomniac stage last night, I whipped a bunch of these cards up using my scraps.  My pile is getting a bit too robust for my liking...

Used my stamp-a-ma-jig to keep the owls neatly in a row.  And LOVE the new foam stamp pads!  No more arm cramps just to get some decent coverage!  The owl is from a retired set and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  In clear mount!  I've been holding off getting the wood mount and I'm glad I did!  The new catalog features every stamp set in clear mount now (as well as wood mount)! Yippee!

Here's another one with different scrap paper.  Sorry about the kitty cat eyeball in the background.

He didn't wanna move from his chair arm!  He was digging the Hello Kitty blanket pillow and the husband's first aid kit as an arm rest.  Spoiled kitty.

Entering the first card in the following challenges
Kaboodle Doodle - All Manly Men
Love to Create - Special Guy in your Life
Clear it Out - Father's Day
Penny's Paper Crafty - I Love you Dad
D.L. Art - Card for a man
The Stamp Man - Make it for a Man
The Poodles Parlour - Father's Day/Male Card

'Till next time!

Ice Cream Graduation

A friend's little sister graduated from high school recently and I needed a card to house a Cold Stone gift card.  Here's what I came up with:

Used the SU bird punch, ribbon, and card stock.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms.  Lol, the husband had to help me tie off the little diploma.  I couldn't do it on my own! He held and I tied.

Used the retired SU slit punch to hold the gift card.  Then hand wrote the sentiments. 

Entering this in the following challenges:
The Shabby Tea Room - Teal, pink, brown
Krafty Girls - Mission Impossible (the husband had to help me tie the little diploma!)
Little Miss Muffet - Rainbows, clouds, or wings

'Till next time!
