Happy Anniversary!

Happy Tuesday all!!  Today I have a card that I made for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary *Ü*  I used one of the new releases from Doodle Pantry and this one is ‘Cozy Gazebo’If you stop by the Doodle Pantry blog, Laurie has a tutorial on how she colored this gazebo.  So helpful, thanks Laurie!!  I used the image without the bushes and trellis and added some flower soft to make the bushes.  Then I sponged in the grass and added some blades of grass and sponged in the sky a bit.  The sentiment is computer generated and the pearls and little pink flowers in the bow are from McMahon five Designs.  (A Christmas pressie from my sweet sis). 

Thanks for visiting my blog today!  Have a great week =)

Old Boots & DD27


Good afternoon stampers!  How’s everyone’s Monday going?  Mine’s going fine now that I’m home from work, hehe!!   Today I would like to share with you a card I made for my FIL’s Birthday this week.  It’s also for the Double Delight challenge Kris and I have going right now.  First let’s get to the challenge..

1.  Use any free image from Becky’s Place (she has so many cute images to choose from that you’ll definitely be able to find something for just about anyone!!)

2.  Make a Birthday card with it! 

So for my card, I picked the OLD BOOTS!  I thought it would be fitting to use this image for a guy.  I paired it with some tickets I found and I believe they’re from scrapdictive.  The sketch I made up myself and used dp from DCWV.  I think that my FIL will like these boots, now I need to find a sentiment to go on the inside…HMMM!  Any suggestions?? 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great week and enjoy creating *Ü*

Falling in Love Bear & a cupcake!



Hello stampers!!  My sister Kris and I often have sister challenges, so we decided to do one with the new image from Designed2Delight and pair it up with another older d2d image.  As you can see, I used the Falling in Love  polar bear.  This is the new challenge we have going over at Double Delight Challenges.

  We are both entering the Card Ideas challenge from the Designers of the Designed2 Delight Team. The challenge is to make a card/project with a Christmas/ winter color combo.  You must use any Designed2Delight images, use blues and purples with white or black being the neutral color, and any embellishment that seems “icy” to you…glitter, glossy effects, clear coating, etc. The deadline is this Friday so you still have a few days left. 

Here is the newest freebie from D2D…if you participated in last weeks challenge, you got this sent to your inbox.   If you missed last week, then you can purchase it in the store.  Isn’t it a cutie!!       

So that’s about it for me today..Hope you have a great week!!

Thank you cards!



Good afternoon stampers!!  Happy SundaySmile  Today I made 3 cards for 3 special ladies I work for and I wanted to show them how much I appreciate them. I made 3 of the same kind.  I used an old SU set called Wreath of Roses.  I didn’t want the card to be to fussy or busy so I went for the CAS look, then I used the MS lace punch and added some ribbon to finish it off.  I know they will enjoy this card along with some flowers Red rose.  

That’s about all for me today,  no challenges to enter this into just wanted to let you see what I made today.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week ahead!!

Ewe are Sweet!!

Good Evening stampers!!  Today I have a card I made for the Designed 2 Delight challenge.  It’s a progressive challenge that you can get freebies just for playing.  This weeks image is this cute li’l sheep set.  Isn’t it the cutest!!

Happy Birthday Darling Hubby!!



Good Evening stampers.  I made this card for my DH.  His birthday is next week and he loves to fish, so I thought this image from Doodle Pantry would be perfect.  He’s always saying how he hopes to catch the 50 pounder one of these days.   Well one of these days his wish might come true!!   Anyway,  I added one of the sentiments that came with the set on there as well and don’t know how it got all crooked, but let’s pretend it’s not ok??  LOL!!

Laurie has so many cute digi sets available in her shop and if you’re new to digis, she has so many freebies for you to try out.  If you do grab a freebie, why not enter the challenge going on now,  all you need to do is use one of Doodle Pantry’s images.   You have til the 19th to get your entry in and the best part is you get a free set just for playing along…how cool is that.  Plus, one lucky player win a $20 Doodle Pantry gift certificate.
