I have finally done a stair step card after spending hours drooling over all the gorgeous ones on SCS and now at Nextlevel blogspot I decided to try one.
Nextlevel had a challenge to do one so this was a perfect time for me too finally give it a go. I don't know about you but once I post my cards on line I see a million things I could add or change. That holds true for this card I might go back and add more sentiments . I know I will definitely be making more I have a ton of ideas for these cards. Thanks for stopping by.

What a fun sketch over at www.thenextlevelchallenge.blogspot.com and their design team did some beautiful cards with it. I was in need once again for a grad card just when you think you have made the last one Oh no!!! you need one more. I used a precious moment image colored it with water color pencils. The paper is from a DCWV pad I believe the Citrus pack. I used the Dr. Seuss book "Oh the Places you will go" for the sentiments it is so perfect for grad cards.The card is a shutter card which makes for a fun card to open.

I don't think I have ever made a slimline card before it is a interesting shape to work with. This weeks Mojo used a slimline card for it's sketch challenge it was a nice change of pace from the traditional square card. I used some DCWV citrus paper and a clear $1 stamp for the image and sentiment. Thanks for stopping by

Over at next level the challenge was to use the ribbon border technique to make a card. This technique had been on my to do list for weeks so this was the push I neede to give it a try. I wish I had put more layers on the card but I guess a simple card is better for this technique to show off the ribbon. I am a ribbon lover so I love the chance to use ribbon in different ways.

This is my second post today if you want to see the cutest post it note holder with Magnolia images look here or scroll down depending on how you got to my blog. Okay now for my Mojo this was a quick and easy design once I had my color combo picked out . I used all scraps so had to adjust some elements to fit my scrap sizes. tfl.
Well I have a double post today first I have the Magnolia post it note challenge. I love these images unfortunately I don't have any Magnolia images but I was fortunate to have received a couple of stamp images from someone else so I could play along. I plan to give this as a gift to a friend who has a little girl and boy. I used BG paper and colored my images with water color pencils because I wanted a softer look than what you can get with markers. Thanks for stopping by hope you enjoy.

Well I needed a bunch of Father Day cards and masculine cards are my least favorite to do. I like doing childrens cards and female cards with all the glitter,bows ,bright colors and fun so I did sneak some fun into some of my masculine cards. The sleepy bear is a digital image from Dustin Pike he has tons of cute images. I used his Noahs Ark image on this card for a baby shower.
I love using digital items for the freedom you have with resizing. If you would like to see even more of my Fathers Day cards checkout this challenge on the Tally Scrappers Gallery.
