Easter Cupcake

Hello!! It's Tuesday so that means it's time for another new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week it's my turn/sketch. Hope you like it and can play along with us! When I saw this cute bunny cupcake stamp I couldn't resist getting it! I've colored up an cut out a bunch so I'm sure you'll be seeing more cards with them in the future. I added some stickles to the nose but it doesn't show up so well in my picture. Thanks for stopping by an be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has created.

Congrats Grad!

Hello! I attempted another CAS Freshly Made Sketch today. CAS is so hard for me! I have a hard time with less is more. This one turned out ok I guess?? My picture is kinda crappy though. No stamping again today. The hat and sentiment were some stickers I found on clearance at M's sometime ago. The stars are from a Little B stitched stars set I bought off Amazon (That Amazon Prime gets me in so much trouble!!). I finished it off with a few silver pearls. Thanks for stopping by, the challenges I'm entering are listed below.

Mother's Day Wreath

Hello! What a gorgeous week we have had here in south central PA this week! Forget Spring Fever I have Summer Fever! But I know it's not here to stay.....yet. Anyway todays card involves no stamping! Found this pretty paper an Hobby Lobby and thought it would look good with a wreath. The wreath is Memory Box I believe, or Poppy Stamps too lazy to get up an look?! The Mom die cut is Simon Says Stamp. I added some premade flowers I also found at Hobby Lobby an finished it off with some pink twine. Quick and Easy! Thanks for stopping by an have a great weekend!!

Toad-ally Awesome

Hello! Time for another great sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. We are sponsored this week by Sami Stamps. I have used the Toad-ally adorable Frog Glasses 2 on my card. I flipped the sketch so that I could use this Rubbernecker sentiment I found in my stash that I thought went perfectly with this little guy. I should have printed my image a little smaller but it still works. I added 3 little buttons to finish it off. Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has done. Challenges I'm entering are listed below.

Mr & Mrs

Happy Valentine's Day! It's Tuesday so that means it's time for another new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches! Perfect sketch for the day I think?! I went with a wedding card, no stamps were used this time around just some dies. I have had this heart die from Memory Box for ages an have never used it! I paired it with my Mr & Mrs die from Kaisercraft, Love this die an I think they went together well??! Added some silver pearls to go with my silver trimmed ribbon. Think it made a very classy and elegant card. Thanks so much for stopping by! Challenges are listed below and be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has come up with.

Ladybug Love

Hello! The Penny Black and More challenge this month is Favorite Stamp. Well don't know that I could ever pick just one!! So I went with my favorite overall stamps, Penny Black. Then I decided to go with the first one I ever bought, Garden Gossip because I couldn't pick out just one this way either?! I just love all those cute little hedgehogs and of course the kitty ones too. I water colored the image an added some glossy accent to the little ladybug. Since I still had some of that pretty ladybug paper on my table from my PigWit card I went ahead an used it again. Really pleased with how this one turned out. Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check back in tomorrow for the new Tuesday Morning Sketch. Challenges are listed below.

Birthday PigWit

Hello! Today's card uses the Hogs and Kisses PigWit  from the From the Heart progressive challenge that started back up again this month. So glad for Faith's recovery! I used the plain PigWit an added a flower to his hand an made it a birthday card. The large birthday sentiment is unknown? It's a clear stamp I picked up at one of the box stores along the way an never saved the packaging? If I had t guess it maybe a Heidi Swapp stamp? Thanks for visiting the challenges I used are listed below.

Party Pup

Hello!! Today I have a cute little boy birthday card to share with you. I'm using an adorable puppy image from Bugaboo Stamps. I colored it with my copic markers. The papers are from a Studio G $1 pk. I used an Alphabet embossing folder (that I've had forever but never used) thought it went well with the number paper. Hopefully it will bring a smile to some little boys face someday! The challenges I'm entering are listed below. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, it goes by soooo fast!

Favorite Peep

Hello! My husband and I went out to dinner the other night and Hobby Lobby just happened to be across the street. I was able to talk him into going over! I usually save those trips for when I'm by myself so I don't have to rush! ;-)  This adorable little chick stamp just had to come home with me, isn't he cute??! I paper pieced the shell and paired him with this weeks Freshly Made Sketch. Although mine are never as CAS as theirs. I did end up putting the sentiment on a banner. I just didn't have a small one that worked for under the bottom panel, my Easter sentiments are very limited! Guess that means I can shop right?!! LOL Ok that's all for now hopefully I'll be back again tomorrow, enjoy the rest of your weekend! List of challenges are listed below.
