Happy anniversary to me!!!

Today is my anniversary (5yrs) I made this card for my hubby. I think it looks more like a wedding card rather than anniversary so since I have all the supplies out I will make a wedding card too (I'll need it sooner or later). Well gotta run going out to dinner . Thanks for dropping by.

MojoTime and some birthday cards

Wow this has really been a busy card making week it has been hard to fit in some of my favorite challenges. I did manage to get my Mojo on today their sketches are always so fun to do. I did a square card it seemed to fit the sketch best I was tempted to add another element to the top square but I restrained myself. I seem to think every inch needs to be embellished even though I love simple designed cards I keep adding on.

I also had a few birthday cards I needed to make and to add to my stash. I have been really getting into pop up cards so decided to try a little different style. I also wanted to try a technique on my other card that i had seen I think on the cuttlebug challenge blog. It involves embossing your paper with a cuttlebug folder and then turning it over to the negative side where you have the grooves. I then took my glue pen and filled in all the hollow parts next I sprinkled my glitter into them pressed down a little a Voila! a beautiful glittered embossed image

contact info and baby cards

Well I have not posted in a couple of weeks I have been busy making cards for people.
This time of the year is always a busy time with so many things going on. Starting with Mothers Day,Graduations,Fathers Day, Weddings and Baby showers. There seems to be a big demand for cards, Today I will show you a couple of cards I made for a baby shower. I always make a couple of styles when I get a special order for a card, that gives the person a choice and the extras goes into my stash. Well I made 3 baby cards for a person who wanted a card which was netural in gender. She only needed one card but ended up buying all three(another reason I make more than one). My favorite is the Noahs Ark it is a digi stamp from DustinPike I first saw it here at Paulas Ponderings I love her coloring on this image. I colored mine a little darker ,popped the images and chalked the edges. The other two are simple stickers and cut outs. Thanks for stopping buy

Quick Mojo

I have tons of stuff to do today so I had to make a quick card. I used my formula for a quick card: 1. Keep the color simple (mono is best) 2. Pull out some premade stickers and embellishments. 3. Add interest with dry embossing. Voila! You now have a formula for quick cards that you can use next time you are in a pinch.

Hi Cupcake CCB05

This challenge from Laura is right on time I need a card for a 1 year olds party. It will be a cupcake themed party so this sweet challenge fits the bill. I used a pattern I have had for a while that I got off Splitcoast. I changed it up a little by adding vellum and the MS border punch for lace. I stamped a cupcake on the vellum and used DCWV SWEET stack for the under dress. The inside reads "Hi Cupcake Sweet Birthday wishes" Thanks for stopping by.
