It's been two years since I started this blog.  I've met TONS of new friends, participated in many hops, events, and design teams.  Not only has my business grown, but I have grown also.  I want to thank all of my followers for sticking by me... through bad jobs, injuries, deaths in the family, and also during the good times these past two years, including the big move I'm making in two months!  I could always count on you, my bloggy friends.

So to celebrate and to THANK you, I'm giving away some candy!!!

Madison Ave stamp set, perfect plum, baja breeze, so saffron ink pads, stampin dimensionals, and 10 fabric flowers from GGsupplyshop on etsy (love them!)

New Challenge at Lia Stampz! Food!

Hey guys!  There's a new challenge at Lia Stampz! This fortnight, we want to see food on your projects! FOOD FIGHT! :D

The winner of the challenge an awesome digi called cupcake (you can get it at Whimsy Stamps here). I used this digi on my card here:

Inked up the cutie patootie in Copic markers.  Popped him up on some die cuts.  Paper is from the Sweet Stack from DCWV.  The tag stamp is from an old retired Stampin Up set.  Satin ribbon and linen thread also from Stampin Up!

Can't wait to see what you guys create!

New Challenge at Scribbles Designs - Multifold Card!

We've got a new challenge over at Scribbles Designs!  This month, we want to see your multifold/easel cards!  Here's my project:

Our multifold card instructions was provided by our fellow DT member Shirl of Creations by Shirl.  I'm giving this one to a little friend of mine, named Ethan. :)

Here it is opened with the belly band.

Two side panels and the middle one folds up into an Easel.  The image is called Dump Truck.  Inked it up with Copic markers.

The sentiment is just computer generated.  Paper by K&Co.

The rules have changed a little this month: YOU NO LONGER NEED A SCRIBBLES IMAGE TO PLAY!!! :)  If you do use a Scribbles image, however, you can enter as many times as you wish.  Go here to play with us!

Wanna get the Dump Truck digi or any other of Scribble's designs? Check out the Scribbles Designs store! 

Can't wait to see what you guys create!

Lia Stampz - Birds, Nests, and Eggs

Hey guys!  There's a new challenge at Lia Stampz! This fortnight, we want to see birds, nests, or eggs! 

The winner of the challenge an awesome digi called love birds (you can get it at Whimsy Stamps here). I used another digi on my card:

I sponged a sky background using Stampin Up Bashful Blue ink and a stampin' sponge.  Then I colored the image with my Copics.  Just popped up on some textured pink card stock and added a Stampin Up sentiment and punch, and I was done!

Can't wait to see what you guys create!
