The Sweet Stop SKetch114

I am so thankful for the ability to get instant digis at any hour of the night or day.  My card for this weeks The Sweet Stop Sketch SSS114 took a wrong turn after working on it off and on for most of the day and at 1:00 AM I decidied to give up and work with what I had done and find a new image. Look at this adorbable little Faith Lamb I found HERE at Sassy Cheryl's. It ended up working out perfectly if I do say so myself and it didn't take me anytime to color.  Technology is awesome.  I did change the sentiment to a flower since I already had one on the image.

ATS Digi Monkey Preview

Hello and welcome to a fun new preview of four adorable new Monkey digis by C.C. Designs Christine Wooden.  These will be available Friday at All That Scraps.  The first one is Latte Monkey...aahh a monkey after my own heart.  I thought it would be cute to make a coffee cup shaped card and then decided to Google the idea and guess what?...someone already came up with the idea and HERE is a tutorial.  A little secret about me... I am horrible at following written directions so I kind of winged it and changed a few things such as rounding the bottom of the cup.
Surprise it is a gift card holder, isn't that fun?  The sentiment is from C.C. Designs Amy R Autumn Sentiments.
Paper-The Paper Studio Cute Blue Stripe, SU Cardstock

A Happy Hello

Hi everyone!! Please don't adjust your computer screen...I have a really big card to show you today.  I just had to make it longer to get these cute sea creatures all together.  Today I used one of my favorite new stamp sets from Sweet 'n Sassy called Happy Ocean Friends not only does it have all of these cute little creatures but it has so may adorable summer sentiments, you will love them!!
 I tried to follow a sketch that I found on Splitcoast TESC140 but I was set on using these papers from my stash that just weren't long enough so I had to come up with a little different layout.
I used a 1/2" circle punch to mount the images on which is the perfect size for these little guys.  I colored them with Copics and added a coat of Crystal Stickles for a little shimmer.   I hope you have a wonderful day and find some time to get crafty.

The Sweet Stop Sketch 113

I am sorry I am a little late getting this post up today.  I stayed up until 3:00 AM getting it done and completely forgot I didn't type up my post...ooops:) Today I am in Houston visiting my brothher after watching him play in his band at The House of Blues last night.  Today we will be spending the day in the pool since it will be a 102 degrees today..yikes!!
Now the reason I am here today this weeks  Sweet Stop Sketch.  It's the 3rd Saturday of the month, and it means it's Sketch with a Spin and PRIZE time. The winner of this week's sketch will receive a $15.00 gift certificate to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.  So get ready to make those Circle cards.
I apologize my coloring is not my best , time got away from me and as I said it was so late when I finished and I just couldn't seem to get things to work out the way I wanted.
I just love this cute stamp from Tiddly Inks called Going Swimming she looks like my girls.   The sentiment is from C.C. Designs Amy R Summer Sentiments, the wave punch is from Fiskars and the paper is Echo Park Summer Days and you can find it Here. I added the water drops from Recollection.  Since I am away from home I don't have the Copic colors with me but it you would like them leave me a comment and I will get them to you.

SC337 Bluebird Song

Hello!! I hope everyone is having a great week.  Today I had a chance to play with the Wednesday Sketch Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers SC337 and Sweet 'n Sassy's very own Korin Sutherland is the sketch hostess this week.
I kept everything CAS for my card so that this beautiful image called Bluebird from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps would be the main focus.  Since I didn't add any embellishments I doubled up the wings and a few flowers to give it a little extra.
Paper- My Mind's Eye Stella Rose
Copics- Bird B02, Bo1, B00, B000, YR02, YR01,YR00,E30,E33/Flowers E42,E41, YG93, Y21/

Let' s Get Tutti Fruitti with My Partner In Crafting Crime

Hello!! How was everyone's weekend? Nice and hot here but we actually didn't do much of anything except church this weekend..boring I guess you could say.  With it being summer we don't actually have to get everything done on the weekend if you know what I mean.
It is time for a new challenge at My Partner In Crafting Crime and the theme is
#29 Tutti Fruitti 
We want to see fruit some where on  your creation.  With it being a 100 degrees here I think my card is very fitting or should I say refreshing.  Sorry I can be a goof ball sometimes:) I used a coat of Glossy Accents on the lemons and lemonade but it just didn't show up in the picture.
Stamps- Taylored Expressions-Chillax (sketch TESC38 sort of)
Paper- DCWV Citrus Stack,, SU Cardstock
Accessories- Glossy Accents, Ribbon
Now it is your turn to use some of that summer fruit for your chance to win a prize and be featured as one of The Most Wanted at My Partner In Crafting Crime. Have a great week and I will see you soon!!

Love You Loads and Loads-The Sweet Stop Sketch 112

Hi everyone!! It has been the first week of summer vacation here and it has been basically adjusting to no school and swim lessons.  I am finding it hard to get cards made with everyone home and I lost my night time energy some where so if you find it please let me know:)  Here is my card for this weeks The Sweet Stop Sketch SSS112 and yes, I know I have done this color scheme before but I love this paper from My Mind's Eye called Hattie.
So next week me and my husband will be celebrating our anniversary and I spent forever trying to find a stamp for the occasion and couldn't find the right one.  So this is what I ended up with showing my domestic side:) I came up with the sentiment and just typed it up on the computer.  I kind of messed up the masculine theme with the flowers but I love it and I did use a button instead of a paper flower so I think that makes it better.
 The stamp is from The Greeting Farm called Laundry.  I just love how her curls turned out, so fun to color.
Now it is your turn to join in this weeks sketch challenge at The Sweet Stop and don't forget to take a look at the Sugar Babies gorgeous creations.  Have a great weekend!!

The Sweet Stop Sketch 111

How is everyone doing? School is now out for summer,  I can't believe how fast the year has gone.  I am looking forward to fun times with the kiddos and then will dread seeing my Riley start Kindergarten. I try to remember to to appreciate every  moment while they are little because I already see how fast they grow up.  Today's card is one I made as a "Thank You" to one of the wonderful ladies that works in the office at school. I used this weeks sketch at The Sweet Stop SSS111 and I hope you can join us this week as well.
 I made these little apples for gifts as well filled with special presents using my Cricut and Apple a Day template from My Time Made Easy.  I loved these and will definitely be making them again.

What's Cookin With Cocoa?

 Today I have a fun little gift set that I altered to share with you.  If  you have followed me for awhile you know I occasionally like to change things up from doing cards.  I think it is such a nice touch to make a personalized gift out of things that don't cost that much.

 I found this cookbook at my local craft store and loved the pattern on it.  I then remembered the great cooking Digi's that Sweet 'n Sassy has to offer so I started by using Pie for Cocoa colored him with Copics and added some ribbon to the cook book, cute and simple.  I then used the Recipe Card Digital Stamp and  personalized the corners by adding Pie for Cocoa  along with one of the Kitchen Sentiments Digis.  These recipe cards are so versatile.. think of what a great gift idea these could be.

I thought this giant paper clip would make a great recipe card holder while you are cooking.  I am forever losing my recipe ... problem solved. Don't forget to laminate your stamped image for easy clean up. I used Chef Cocoa  and added the Kitchen Sentiment to the hat.  That is one of the many great things about digis, you can personalize items even more.
I hope you enjoyed my little project and I wish you a great weekend with time to craft.
