Thinking of Mew

I love Newton's Nook Designs and I love playing along in the Inky Paws Challenge which is currently a sketch. To create my card, I used Newton's Antics stamp set that I received for winning the last Inky Paws Challenge. I also used one of the sentiment stamps from Newton's Sick Day. The folks at Newton's Nook Designs are very kind and generous and I'd like to thank them for the awesome stamp set I received and well as their patience with me.

Happy Christmas

Don't get nervous! Rest assured, I have not started making Christmas cards already, that doesn't happen until December. I am participating once again in the From The Heart Digital Stamp of the Month Challenge featuring the adorable August image, Candy Cane for Snowman! Thank you Faith for the sweet digi!

Love You Tons!

The current Lawnscaping Challenge is embossing.  For today's card, I used an embossing folder for the card base and for the mommy elephant I used Critters in the Jungle stamp set and the baby elephant and sentiment is from the Love You Tons set.

Hello, hello, hello! I decided to take a blog break and enjoy the summer! But I'm ready to get back to posting. I'll be around to visit everyone soon. In the meantime, to create today's card, I used the duck from the Make it Crafty Hiding Deer and Duck digi set.  Somewhere in my travels across blogland, someone made a card very similar, I apologize for not making note of the blog or their name.

Happy Birthday

My youngest daughter recently had a birthday! If you know her, you know this card suits her well, she loves purple and sparkles! I love my fuse tool and I love my daughters, all three of them!

Nom! Nom! Nom!

To play along in the Inky Paws Challenge #23 - Summer Lovin', I used stamps from the Shark Bites set from Newton's Nook Designs I sent the card to a good friend vacationing in North Carolina not too far from where the shark attacks have occurred in recent weeks. I hope it serves as a reminder to stay out of the water!

I Chews You!

When I watched Jennifer McGuire's tutorial on how to make a clear shaker card, I fell in love and had to try too. So I pulled out my fuse tool and set to work.  The front of the card was created using one of the adorable labs from Newton's Nook Designs, Fetching Friendship stamp set.  I attached the sentiment to the back of the front panel to hide the telltale signs of using copics! Such a fun and different way to create a card!

Calories Don't Count in the Summer!

I'm so glad I get to play along in From the Heart's Digital Stamp of the Month Challenge for July since I participated in June! This month's super fun image is Inter Tube Birdbrain along with several fun sentiments! I sure hope there are no sharks in the water!

Happy Summer

Time for me to play in the Lawnscaping Challenge - Sparkle and Shine. To create my card I used Tag You're It and Puffy Cloud Borders Lawn Cuts, and the super adorable Happy Summer stamp set, featuring ants and watermelon from Lawn Fawn! Every summer I have an ongoing war with black ants and at the moment, I'm ahead in the battle. I've discovered by sitting the cat's bowl of food in a dish filled with water, the ants cannot get to the food. However, if I place something on the counter that I plan to cook, all bets are off and an battalion of ants appear. My answer, no cooking, easy!
