Another My Pink Stamper Challenge!

Over at my pink stamper we were to make something for Fall or Halloween.  I cut this wagon from Dress up paper doll and the pumpkins and ghost are from Peachy keen.  The Loads of love sign I just stamped the words on an piece of Orange card stock and cut it out.  The stamp is from Loads of love stamp set from stampin up.  Don't you love this time of year?????  I used my stmapin up markers to color the ghost and pumpkins. If you like what you see I would love your comments.  Hope you all have a great evening and if you haven't checked out peachy keens web site they are having a blog hop with some great giveaways!  It looks like they are also having a great sale.  Also over at the pink stamper she is giving away her Spooky Puns stamp set.  And My Creative time is offering a discount on her video.  So lots going on this weekend.

My Pink Stamper Challenge. Make Something with a Bird!

 Joy did a slider card over at Every Day Cricut so I thought I would give it a try.   This bird house is from Stretch your imagination.

This bird is from Create a Critter.
 The face stamp is from Peachy Keen and I just cut a piece of paper to make the funky hat.
 I used the top part of the sheep on From My Kitchen to cut out the scalloped oval.   The stamp is from MY PINK STAMPER.  I am really liking the way these stamps work.  They are high quality.  I also like the way they are displayed.  It is very easy to quickly read them and see what one you want to grab.

I hope you enjoy.  This was pretty easy to make. It was a little time consuming.  I am going to try to make one with a princess and frog on it for a friends little girls birthday.

My Creative Challenge "Old School!"

Hi Everyone!  If you are  new to my blog Welcome.  I am really enjoying the comments that I am getting.  They are very encouraging.  I started this blog at a time in my life when things were not going very well and I needed a place in my life that was all positive.  This has been an incredibly positive place and I am loving it.  The Paper Crafting World is full of amazing, upbeat people!  WOW this weeks challenge was to go old school and get out those stamps.  NO CRICUT ALLOWED!  What, are you kidding????  Anyway it was fun getting the old scissors out and cutting everything.  Not to mention the stamps.  I haven't used this stampin up stamp set in awhile and it is one of my favorites.  The Halloween ribbon is some ribbon I won on a challenge at More than favors.  I think it is a fun ribbon and was a good fit for this card. Well, I am off to start another project so check back later and see what I have to post next. 

God Bless,

My Pink Stamper 9/11 Challenge

 Here is the card I made for the 9/11 Challenge at my Pink Stamper. I just want to point out a few things about the card.  I decided not to put the ribbon or the picture straight.  I wanted this to symbolize that things were out of the norm.  Second I did not add a sentiment because I believe that nothing could be said.  I wanted the cute Mice singing at the top of there lungs to remind us of the freedom we have. I hope you all enjoy my card.  Please take a minute to look around my blog and if you like what you see join and/or leave a comment.

Here is the challenge colors and shape for Challenge #36


This was a fun challenge because I just received my order from Peachy Keen and got to use one of my new stamps.   Here is my order.
This is going to be such a busy week that I won't have a lot of time to spend in my Craft room :(  but I will try to play as much as I can.  I also have to get my projects ready for my trip in October.
Here is my entry into Peachy Keen Challenge.  I hope you enjoy it.  I used my Cricut DS to alter the pigs house to make into a birds house.  I used my stampin up scallops punch for the top and I used my new stamp Winter is for the birds for the bird and for the saying.  I used my cuddle bug to emboss the snowflakes.  I hope you enjoy.  Please take a minute and look around my blog and let me know what you think.  I love your comment!

Two Kits made for Big Cardmaking Weekend. Kit 1 & 2

 Ok so I have 2 kits ready to go!  Here if the first one.  Ok so I know I was going to do all Christmas but when I came across this I just had to make it for a fall card.   This is from Pooh and Friends.  It was a fun card to make.  I am now ready to make 5 more.  I used stickles on the branches.


My next card is this cute Christmas card off of Hello Kitty Greeting.  I cut it at 3 1/2 and then used brads to make the ornaments.  I used my white jell pen to do some outlining as well as some other markers.  I used stickles on the bow and star.  Happy Holidays is Stampin up Warmest Regards.  I know have 8 of these cards ready to make.  Well its a start.

A couple updates and then on to crafting!!!!!!!

I am so excited!  My peachy keen order is now in Texas!  Amarillo to be exact at least they were at 2 am.  I really hope they come tomorrow.  I have also FINALLY placed an order and ordered 3 of the Pink Stamper stamp sets.  Hopefully I will have them by next weekend!  I love getting stuff in the mail!  It's like Christmas over and over again.

What I am up to.... Well I am going to my sister-in-laws house the weekend of October 9th to do some card making and hopefully my other sister in law will be there.  We try to get-together sometime in Sept/Oct to work on Christmas stuff.  So this year I am going with a plan!  I know for those of you that know me this is coming as a shock.  But I need to make about 175 Christmas cards and I need a plan.  Usually I make all the same card but there is nooooooooooo way I'm doing that this year.  So my plan is to make card kits to take with me so that I can have lots of fun and just put cards together and finish the details.  There will be no thinking involved!  Just lots of fun.  That means between now and then I have to get busy designing cards and getting all the cuts done and put them in zip lock bags ready to go.  I may try to do a video to show you the process I go through.  I think I may also work on some of my Christmas presents as well.  I sometimes sets of cards to give to people as well as some other things.  We will see.  I also have some scrapbooking I need to get down but when????????? 

Remember there are a lot of giveaways going on and some challenges so get blogging!


Hopefully soon to return with some cards to post.
