I'd like to hug you....

Hey there my crafty friends!  I am sharing a new card I created with you all-- I find this sentiment super hilarious :)  haha!  And it works perfect with this short armed t-rex cut from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  The sentiment is from Pretty Cute Stamps-- I decided I would create a card to use for the challenge on the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog and it was to use a button-- so i did :)  Enjoy!

Are you kitten me?!?!?!

Hello my crafty friends!  Today is my design day with my friends at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and I have a super fun card to share with you all today!  The inspiration for the kitten card came from the lovely and talented Mary at CardzTV Stamps--if you don't have any CardzTV Stamps... you should get some... as you can see they pair amazingly well with the super awesome cut files from Lisa at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons!  Hope you enjoy :)

If I Only Had A Brain....

Hello my crafty friends!  Oh how I wish I was better at sending cards... on time... ya actually get them written out and put in the post... oooops!  Maybe that will be my goal for 2016! Haha I won't hold my breath!  But anyhoo-here's a card I created and is off in the mail to a friend who has a b-day is on Saturday... so I didn't quite forget... I'm just a bit behind!  I decided it was time to start inking up some unloved stamps so this set popped to the top of the unused stack!   This set is from Jaded Blossom Stamps and it's called "Yellow Brick Road."  I also decided since it's a scarecrow and that screams fall that it would be perfect to use it for a "Fall Colors" challenge over at Jaded Blossom September Challenge and for the SVG Cutting Files Anything Fall Challenge :)  Enjoy!

Sentiment is from Jaded Blossom Set "Yellow Brick Road"

Hello my crafty friends!  Happy Friday!  I hope today finds you well :)  I know I must sound like a broken record most days but where oh where are the days going?? Yikes--- I can't believe it's the 18th already-- and fall is most certainly coming... well maybe today it feels like it but yesterday certainly wasn't fallish here in MN!  I hope you enjoy the card I have created for you all today.  There is a brand new challenge over with my great friends at CardzTV and the 3D design team is all about creating fabulous 3D cards that are all about Fall-- so I most certainly had to join in on the fun!
