To An Old Goat

Between holidays I keep busy making birthday cards and the Birthday Farm Animals This is Life, stamp set from Simon Says Stamps enabled me to complete one more for the pile. This card is earmarked for someone about to celebrate an 'ouch, how did I get this old' birthday!

Newton's Birthday Bash

I seem to have balloons on my mind lately, maybe its because balloons are something that two year olds and cats love! For my card today I used the cat and balloon stamp from Newton's Birthday Bash set.

Critters in the Arctic - Walrus

The Lawnscaping Challenge Birthday Celebration is in honor of their 100th challenge! To play along I created a winter themed birthday card for a sweet little girl that is about to celebrate her second birthday! I used the walrus from Critters in the Arctic stamp set and Critters in the Arctic Lawn Cuts, Stitched Hillside Boarders, and Tag You're it Lawn Cuts. Congratulations to the Lawnscaping team on their success!

Bugs and Kisses

Happy Valentine's Day! My card today features the adorable Bugs and Kisses from Lawn Fawn. I used three pieces of plastic to create the jar, one for the outside and one on the inside for the ladybugs to crawl on and the third pieces was used for the back of the jar.

Jolly Critters

I love this little puppy from Penny Black's Jolly Critters stamp set but since the set was Christmas oriented and the puppy was looking up at a stocking with a present by its feet, I decided to do a little stamp surgery and free him from the holiday ornaments so he could admire a valentine instead.  I plan to enter my card in Penny Black Saturday Challenge for February: hearts!

Tickle Me Happy

There is something about purple and turquoise that is very appealing to me so I couldn't resist using those colors and Tickle Me Happy stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps. Can't image what bird the feathers could be found on except in my imagination.

Hello Spring!

I wanted to play along in the new Lawnscaping Challenge: Clean and Simple.  I used the Lawn Fawn Stamptember Exclusive Feather Friends stamps set to create my card.  Even though the lousy rotten groundhog says we are going to have six more weeks of winter, I've decided to ignore him so I'm pretending its spring and the robins are here!

Vicki's Stamp Smiles new challenge is to fill in the blank "I'm addicted to __________________ with a Love theme. It would seem that anything in the world of card making I'm addicted to especially, dies, embossing, paper and images! But most of all, I'm addicted to DOGS, any size, shape, color, breed, alive or just imagined, I just cannot get enough dogs!

You must use things from your stash that are at least one year old.  I used the digi Forgiven, from Squigglefly that sadly no longer exists. The first time I used this image was January 3, 2011 and can be found here.
