It’s A Good Day To Be Happy~

challenge_graphic-650-october2

Sometimes all you need to be happy is a hug from a friend.

My card~

Bunnies

I used the adorable bunnies from the Mama Elephant Honey Bunny stamp set to create a simple card to send a friend who hasn’t been feeling well.

A close-up~

Bunnies-Close

Hopefully today is a good day for YOU to be happy too.

You’re A Real Princess~

Have you been coloring during October?

challenge_graphic-650-october2

I’m joining in when I can, but it’s not as much as I would like.

I’ve even spent some evenings coloring, but I haven’t found the time to post my pictures.

There’s just not enough time in the day.

And it’s hard to get a good picture after dark. Sigh.

But, here’s one of my evening’s work~

Princess

Even on a completed card!!

How about that?

A close-up~

Princess Close

The little princesses from The Greeting Farm Ever After set are so cute and fun to color.

And perfect for a real princess’s birthday.

Birthday Bear Wishes For You~

Have you missed me?

I will admit that life has gotten a bit out of control with us trying to enjoy every last moment of the Summer.

Need I mention school started yesterday?

So I thought I’d pop in here with my card for Kathy from The Daily Marker Pop Up Challenge: It’s All About Lines.

My card~

Bear Birthday Wishes Line Challenge

I used Washi tape to form my lines of varying sizes and simply blended two colors of Distress Ink into the white spaces.

Once I removed the Washi tape I had a perfectly striped or better yet lined background.

Keep an eye out for more Pop Up Challenges from Kathy at The Daily Marker.

I know I’ll be joining in!

I used~

I Knew When I Met You~

That an adventure was going to happen.

I love that sentiment.

Almost as much as I love the Petunia Gets A Piggy Back image that accompanies it.

My card~

Bee Friends

You just have to smile looking at those two together.

A close-up~

Bee Friends Close

It reminds me of a certain little girl running around my house. He he.

I used~

I Like Big Mutts~

And I can not lie.

The family and I saw that phrase on an animal clinic sign the other day and laughed about it for the rest of the day.

Of course, I had to explain it and the song to the kids. Sigh.

It also meant I had to use it.

My card~

Mutt

I used the adorable two sided hanging puppy from the My Favorite Thing’s You Make My Tail Wag stamp and die set.

A close-up~

Mutts

Not only is my puppy peeking at us from the front, but when you open the card you see his big…

Mutts-Inside

He he.

And the sentiment~

Mutts-Sentiment

Silly I know, but it makes me laugh.

However, probably not my best idea since my five year old is now singing the song repeatedly. Sigh.

I used~

Happy Father’s Day!!

This little guy just makes me smile.

Meet Milton from Stampingbella.

My card~

Favorite

I colored him for Day 19 of the 30 Day Color Challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker.

30 Day Color Challenge 2

For whatever reason I thought he’d be perfect for my Father’s Day card for my Dad.

A close-up~

Favorite-Close

Especially when paired with my sentiment.

The inside~

Favorite-Inside

Funny, right?

At least I think so.

My sister, Amy, might not agree.

I saw the phrase somewhere online Friday.

I think it might have even been a stamp, but I can’t remember where I saw it or even find it now.

So, I simply used Photoshop and my printer to create my version of it.

Underneath Milton is a printed paper from Simple Stories I Am collection which lists many of the qualities that I think my Dad instilled in me.

That makes my card a little sweet and a lot sassy.

Just like me.

Hello Graduate!!

I can hardly believe that our good friend’s daughter has graduated from High School.

Where has the time gone?

I can still remember the day she was born.

Aww…I’m getting all teary eyed just thinking about it.

My card~

Graduate

I used a Wryn Graduate digital stamp from Tiddly Inks that I colored to match Morgan’s actual gown and sash.

Luckily I had just watched a Sandy Allnock video on coloring white images.

A close-up~

Graduate-C

Not too bad I think.

Except for where I thought her hair was the stash and colored it blue.

Sigh.

Anyway blue hair or not I know that this graduate is going great places.

Just to note that it’s Day 20 of the 30 Day Color Challenge.

30 Day Color Challenge 2

Amazingly enough I’m keeping up.

Yippee!
