Happy Birthday PIE!

Happy Wednesday bloggy friends! We are up with a new challenge over at A Random Fan and our theme this time is                            


I'm not too much of a cake person and at my office when we celebrate birthdays we do it with pie instead of cake, so this cutie little image was just perfect and so much fun! 

I used a large range of copics from the E family and used BAKER ARIE, this is a little bit smaller card measuring at 4.25x4.25, I love the mini's for a change and think she was perfect to use with this color scheme and smaller size.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Glitter N Sparkle Challenge-Use Some Flowers
Sentimental sundays- Use Kraft cardstock plus a sentiment
Artistic Inspirations-Baking or Cooking
The Pink Elephant-ATG
Open-Minded Crafting Fun- Autumn or Fall (colors and baking and pie!!)

Ms. Claus

I made this card featuring Ms. Claus from A Random Fan, we are highlighting this adorable image this week and would love it if you popped on over to A Random Fan to check out the DT projects. She is the perfect image to use to get started on your Christmas cards for all those fabulous females in your life!

Here is my card, isn't she just so adorable!?!  I used a bunch of scrap paper and a frame that I had cut out along time ago.  I tend to cut out a bunch of frames and borders whenever I have Make the Cut open and am using it, just so that I have several already cut elements to choose from. The star and pinking circle are from My Favorite Things, and I just added white glossy accents and line work.  Hope you like it!!

Bike Ride with Monet

Hi everyone, we are up with a new challenge over at A Random Fan, it's easy.....Anything Goes!!!

I've used Monet's Bike for my card, colored with copics, added some borders from scraps of paper, the butterflies are from a punch by Martha Stewart and the clouds are a SVG from Miss Kate Cuttables which I then stamped on.  I left off a sentiment until I know who and for what occasion I will send this.  

Hope you like it and will come join us over at A RANDOM FAN!

Another year......

I just finished this card for a few specific challenges and for my good friends birthday which is today.  She doesn't check my blog, so I'm good to post it before I give it to her!

The image is called Flappy Birds and you can find it over at From the Heart Stamps, they just had a blog hop with fabulous DT projects and tutorials, I used the tutorial that Calypso posted on the cloud background, I've struggled with clouds before, so the tute came at the perfect time!

I am entering the Blog Hop challenge at From the Heart which is to use one of the tutorials from the hop.... (cloud background)

Hi everyone, I'm here with my final project as my guest design spot over at Your Next Stamp, I have had such a blast playing along with the challenges, the featured post and the big birthday bash at the beginning of the month, wow, what fun!!!

I am leaving with an 8x8 layout, using the camera, insta love, and we click image and sentiment from the INSTA LOVE stamp set.  I really love this set, I think it's perfect with all the instagram pics and Project Life/pocket pages that are available now...just so fun!  I used papers from Simon Says Stamp 2012 card  kit and the gold "crushing" and stars are from Heidi Swapp....LOVE the gold!  I paper pieced the camera, added some stamped polka dots, a couple different papers and elements from the kit.

This is one of my fav pics of me and the husband and is the first layout I've done in over a year.....maybe two, it's been a long time!  I really love how it turned out and now I've got the itch to start back into my Project Life and scrapbooks, yay :D
