This is another special request. I used my Big Shot to die cut Hello Kitty, and to emboss the Happy Birthday on the front center.  Then I created a pull out tag for the personalized Happy Birthday wish.

This is a special request for a friends grandson's first birthday.  This was the only dump truck stamp that I had.  It's from Stampin' Up's retired set called, CONSTRUCTION.

What could be simpler? The white pre-embossed card is from Michael's. Add an image cut with your Cricut. Finally, stamp the greeting of your choice and you have before you a sweet, simple card ready to be mailed to one of your lovely friends.

I used my Cricut cartridge April Showers, to create the bird and birdcage on this card.  The colors are pear pizzazz, concord crush, and crumb cake. I stamped the for you, using Stampin' Up's set called Fresh Cuts.
The layered scalloped circles were created using my nestabilities. I embossed the music notes using the Cuttle Bug embossing folder called Allegro.  The dots were embossed with the folder called Swiss Dots.
Have a wonderful weekend!

This card will meet the qualifications of two of this weeks challenges.  The sketch of the week at Skipping Stones.

The other challenge is the Color Throwdown #125,

 For this card I used Stampin' Up's Awash With Flowers, and Noteworthy.  I also used SU's embossing folder Textured Impressions.

I found this sweet little frog prince photo holder at Hobby Lobby.  He is just the most presious thing, I had to give him a new home!

I teamed  the Owls and Bluebells set from (My Favorite Things), with Stampin' Up's real red and baja breeze cardstock.  Throw in some BoBunny designer paper, a few pearls and a card is created.

  Go visit Moxie Fab World for another challenge:

I had stamped and colored a second image while working on yesterdays challenge card.  So, hating to waste a good image I created a second card.  I used the same colors and image as Katie's card, but I changed the tri-fold card to a basic card design.

This little sticky note holder was created with Stampin' Up's owl punch.  This was one of Lynnor's club projects.  You may know Lynnor better by "just add glitter".  Visit her site, she is awesome.

I stayed up late to finish this sweet little card.  I created a tri-fold card of early espresso card stock.  I then added some scalloped rows of early espresso, melon mamba, and sky blue, (The color throwdown #124)  The stamp sets I used are SU, Very Versatile (Inside verse), Whimsical Words (front verse), and The Nicest Things (front image).  This card was created for Katie , a fellow paper crafter.  See this address for more information about Katie,   Imagine how it will brighten her day to receive a card knowing someone is thinking of her. Please send Katie a card.

The Sizzix Die makes these so easy to whip out. I have a stack of memo pads that just might find themselves all dressed up looking for new homes. ha, ha, ha!

Happy New Year!

I'm sending each of you best wishes for a happy, successful, dream come true New Year ever.  2010 is behind us and I have resolved that I will take my life back, and share my love for stamping and paper crafting with the people I love.  I will post on my blog, but probable not everyday. 
I wanted to share the calendars that I made this weekend for my wonderful sisters.  I am still working on the last one, so I'll be back in a day or two to share it with you.

I'll get these to each of you ASAP.  They turned out so good.... (Sharing that love!)
