Bebe' Card

This card I made to send to my hub's business partner, who is from Spain but working in China right now! (yeah, follow that!) It's a blue card with periwinkle cardstock that I punched a border edge on. Topped that with a striped paper that I embossed with Swiss Dots, and chalked the edge. The onesie I cut out from Cricut's New Arrival with shadow. Stickled the stars on it and added tiny star buttons. I cut out the scalloped squares and the rounded squares from Cricut, chalked the edges, and added white rub-on letters and more tiny star buttons. I attached these with pop-dots. I then finished it off by adding larger star buttons and accenting the edges and letters with my white Sharpie and some more Stickles.

Wings Swap

I made this card for a swap. The theme was "Anything With Wings." I stamped the border with my fabulous peg stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry. I also faintly stamped a butterfly background. I added the Prima flowers with rhinestones and leaves. Then finished it off with 3D stickers with glitter and rhinestones. I do love the bling!

Father's Day

I made this card for my dad for father's day. He likes to fish (obviously). It is actually a 3D image, but can't really tell from the pic. I stickled the letters too.

Elephant Post It Holder

This week's BBTB challenge was to use the elephant from Zooballoo. This was fun because that elephant is so cute! I used ribbon to frame the design on cardstock. Pearl brads in the corners and letter stickers. I had the post-its from Target. Check out the other designers concepts, they are great!

Sweet Land of Liberty Popsicle Card

The latest BBTB Challenge was to use the popsicle from Doodlecharms. All I could think of was the "rocket" pops we used to have as kids that were red, white and blue. I tested several inks before I decided on the red and blue that I chose. It had to be just right! yummy. It just makes me think of summer, and it's been really hot here lately! We went to the store to get popsicles last night!

Miles of Smiles,


I made this sympathy card for my aunt, who just lost someone very dear to her. It's a very simple card, but I think sympathy cards should be understated.

Dad Birthday Card

This card I made for my dad's birthday. He enjoys fishing, and my brothers and my hub took him deep sea fishing over the weekend. It didn't turn out how I envisioned, but oh well.
