Yes, it has been forever..........

Here are a few cards I made the other day, just messing around with my stuff.

It's not that I haven't made any cards but when I did they were made quickly and given to the intended recipient without taking time to take pictures! Fortunately, the photography business has been extremely busy so haven't had much "play" time.

This is the card for TECC #61 (in case you hadn't figured that out from the title!) ;-)

I used "Two Scoops" paper from Basic Grey and my Changito monkey colored with Copics. I added some crystal stickles here and there for sparkle, especially on the large brad in the center of the flower and 3 robin eggs. Inside I stamped "Thinking of You."

My mom came over and we made several cards on Thursday. It was a fun "play" day!

House Mouse Monday Challenge #30

This challenge from the House Mouse Challenge Blogspot was to make a shaped card....well, in all honesty, I don't think I have ever made a shaped card! After looking at some of my House Mouse stamps, this is the one that made an idea pop into my head. I was pretty happy with how the card turned out!

Black paper is from PaperTreyInk. The clear acetate is from Cornish Heritage Farms. Believe me, this is tough stuff. I had a hard time punching out the openings with my punch! The stamps, besides the House Mouse one, are from Stampin' Up. Hello and the stars are Stampin' Up RubOns. The "cord" was made by rubbing some Elmers School Glue on a piece of black cord and wrapping it around a pencil until it was dry. The phone receiver was stamped with Stampibilities White Emboss Ink and then embossed with Stampin' Up clear. I cut the Mouse off the phone's receiver and then stamped it again in brown. I colored the mouse with copics and cut him our and stuck him back on the receiver.

Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #60

This is my take on the sketch this week for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge. Lucky for me I had some precut ovals I bought on eBay as I don't have anything that cuts or punches oval....I know that's hard to believe!!

I used a mix of paper. The pink background is Sweet Blush Perfect Match from Papertrey Ink. Some of the other paper is Basic Grey-Two Scoops. I colored the cupcakes with my copics, added a bit of sparkle with some Spica's and some white from a gel pen. I tried to get a bit creative with the's not as smooth as I wanted but not too bad.

Today's Creativity...not so much!

I made another card like the one yesterday, but for a baby boy this time. I intended to make several more with this layout but had other things come up that I needed to do such as design a wedding book.

I also had a photo order come in so I needed to "pretty up" my wallet packaging a bit for a senior girl's order. You can check out my photo blog or my website.
Thanks for checking in! I always appreciate comments!!

A Baby Card

I made this baby card based on some cards I saw a while back on Michelle Wooderson's blog. I check her blog often for inspiration!

The patterned paper was Nana's Nursery from Hobby Lobby on Kraft paper from PapertreyInk. The stamp is from Stampin' Up set "Polka Dot Punches" and the heart was punched out with the Stampin' Up Large Heart Punch. The sentiment is from Bitty Baby Blessings from PaperTreyInk.
