Another Sunday post

Hey y'all! I'm swinging back on in today, to share a few (yes, a few) cards with you!

You may remember me telling you, my husband got me a new camera for my birthday (which isn't until April) and that I was gonna wait until my birthday to open it?...Yeeeeah, that didn't happen! LOL I really did try, but so hard to resist when it's sitting right in front of you! ;)

Anyhow, I'm playing around with it today and trying to figure out the settings, etc. So, I had some cards I made and thought it was perfect to test out. And my lighting isn't the best today, so here goes nothing. ;)

Oh, and my 'cupcake card' is for the current The Card Concept Challenge which again, I'm cutting it close!


Card one.


I have not used a cupcake in awhile! lol I found an older cupcake set, that I had buried in a pile of stamps. I think they're actually quite cute, so who knows why I had them buried so deep?!...I kept my card nice and clean. I just did some coloring, added a piece of pattern paper peeking out from my cupcake and topped it off with some white cord. For some reason, I've been wanting to add this cord/twine to everything! lol Nothing special about it. Guess I'm just feeling it. ;) 


Card two.



Card three.



So, I would love to hear what you think?!...And please don't judge my photos too hard, as I'm still learning. ;) Feel free to give any pointers, if you like. I'll take all the help I can get! lol ;) 

Thanks for stopping by! 
Enjoy your day! 


5...happy birthday

Hey y'all! Happy Sunday! :)

Today, we start a new challenge at CAS on Sunday! And this time we're all about a 'number(s)'.


Here's what I came up with.


I just love the 'three amigos' set from Mama Elephant!...So cute! (I also used some Waffle Flower sets, as well.) ;) And yes, my raccoon is a blue/gray color. I just was having fun with things and thought it would cut to do something a little different. After, I stamped a 5 and added a bright pink hat. To finish things off, added my sentiment and a few sequins. So, what you think?!...

Be sure to swing on over to CAS on Sunday and see all the DT creations! And while you're there I hope you'll join us?!!...

Enjoy your day!

howdy

Hey y'all! Happy Wednesday! Hope all is well?!...

My kids are on Spring break this week, so my time has been filled with some fun and craziness! ;)

I'm quickly swinging on in to share a card I managed to whip up, late last night. This time I'm playing along with the current Lawnscaping Challenge, which I'm cutting it close on this one! ;)



So, here's my card.


I recently won an online distress inks class (which I am soooo behind on). Though, I'm having fun learning different techniques and not too mention, all the inspiration that comes with it! ;) So, what I did for my background was using my distress inks directly on my paper. I chose two colors and just held the paper in place and ran each one across it. Easy, yeah?...Something so simple, yet it never even crossed my mind to do that! ;)

And I couldn't resist putting little googly eyes on that cactus! lol I think it adds some character. ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

BABY

Hey y'all! Happy Monday!



Today, we have a brand new challenge at the Waffle Flower Photo Challenge!


Isn't that such a sweet inspiration photo?!...

Here's what I came up with.


I wasn't really aiming for a baby card, but that's what I ended up with! lol After some playing around, it all just started to come to me. I did some watercoloring for my 'cloud'. Then added some deep blue stars and a gold moon. After, I stamped my sheep in a soft pink and did some cutting. Once done, I added it to my 'circle' die cut piece. Then, I used the Waffle Flower 'Cat' die and just trimmed off the tail end and head. (Thought, it worked perfectly for a banner!?!) ;) And after added my 'baby' sentiment to it. Added it to my circle with a mini staple and added a touch of white twine. So, what do think?!...

Be sure to swing on over to the Waffle Flower Photo Challenge and check out all the DT creations! And while you're there, I hope you'll join us?!!...

Enjoy your day!

Sailmate

Hey y'all! Happy Monday!
Hope you're off to a great start of the week?!! :)

I'm just quickly swinging on in, to share a card I made for the current Little Tangles Challenge. Being it's 'anything goes', I'm having way too much fun! ;)


So, here's my card.



Simple and sweet, yeah?!...Keeping everything 'one layer', I did some masking with my sentiment and water. Used some fun ink colors and called it good. :) Let me know what you think?!...


Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

every cloud...

Hey y'all! Happy Sunday!



Today, we have a brand new challenge at CAS on Sunday! This time we're all about using a 'sketch'.


Here's what I came up with.



I decided to flip the sketch, for my card. I kept things nice and clean. I just did some simple stamping and cutting. Then to tie everything together, I used a mini staple to hold my clouds together. Added my sentiment, along with some twine and sequins. That's it. What do you think?!...

Be sure to swing on over to CAS on Sunday and see all the DT creations! While you're there, I hope you'll join us, too! :)

Chocolate

Hey y'all! Happy Saturday! :)

Hopefully, Spring has come your way?!...Been nothing but sunny and humid, here. Mid to upper 80's...it feels oh so good! ;) (I'm really trying not to rub it in. lol)

Anyhoo, I recently went on a little shopping spree (again)! And I bought the new Verve Stamps chocolate set and die. I couldn't resist, especially knowing that Chaitali illustrated it. ;)

This is a 'just for fun' card.


Seriously, when making this card, I was smelling chocolate! lol I kept sniffing and sniffing..."like, am I really trippin'?!" (yes, I talk to myself like this. lol) Well, I'll tell you what it was (or at least what I think it was)...it was that new stamp smell! lol Guess that smell, along with thinking 'chocolate', had my smelling chocolate! If anyone else has this set, please feel free to let me know if you're smelling chocolate, too! ;)

But really, this is such a fun set! I've only made this card so far, but I'm gonna continue to play around with it some more. I kept going back and forth with the added twine at the top. I thought leaving it off, it looked to bare up there?...So, I added it back. But now looking at it, I'm thinking I should have gone the other way?!...lol...Sometimes I do these last minute decisions, which don't always go in my favor. Let me know what you think?!...

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your weekend! :)
