Uuumm...Candy Good

I have a little more Halloween inspiration for you today even though it was 101 degrees here again.  It seems Fall is never going to come...maybe by December.  I used this cute digi image from By Lori Designs called Frank.  The sentiment just came to me and seemed perfect.

The Sweet Stop Sketch 127

***Please scroll down for the By Lori Designs Birthday Hop***
Wow, I don't know about you but it has been a busy and fast few weeks since school has gotten back in.  This is my first year to have so much running and after school activities, I had no idea how much work it would but as long as we are having fun:)  Today's card started out being for my daughter's new friend's birthday but it turns out that I might have to keep it for my littlest princesse's big day that will be coming up soon...oh and make a duplicate for Riley. Here is my take on this week's sketch at The Sweet Stop.
The Sweet Stop Sketch 127
 I have mentioned before what big fans we are of Rapunzel in this house and yes that includes the boys too, Sawyer has a thing for blondes.  This image is from Disney's Tangled and was a free coloring page that I found here.  The Sentiment is from C.C. Designs Amy R Magical Wishes , paper is DCWV Pocket Full of Posies, and the butterfly and flower punch is from Martha Stewart. I colored the flowers on the ribbon to match.

Inky Recipe Inspiration

 If you visit me often you know how  I love working and coloring with cute childresn's images and oh my, does Nicole at Inky Impressions have a bunch of cuties to choose from  right HERE.
For so long I have wanted to get my recipe collection organized.  You should see the mess I call a cook book, yikes!! We all love making cards but lets face it we have a huge stash and then give some of our favorites away.  I think adding a favorite stamp to a recipe card is a great way to not only be creative in another way but also have a fabulous looking recipe book.
I will say it was a bit hard for me to remember to keep it CAS because it is a recipe card after all and a lot of embellishments just isn't practical.  I used this a adorable stamp called Lili's Sweet Treat from Inky Impressions along with this fun paper from Doodlebug called Kitchen Gadgets.  I typed up my recipe which, is super yummy by the way and then added a few doodles around the edges.

  I am going to try and keep up doing at least a few more recipe cards a month..fingers crossed.  That time thing can sometimes get the best of me though.  Don't forget about the Inky Impressions Challenge Blog we would love for you to join in.  Have a great day and I will see you on Friday for the BLD Blog Hop.

Foto Friday-Lilly

I am going to try to start doing something a little different on Friday and that is to join in with the wonderful Lori Boyd's Foto Friday.  Every Friday Lori shares a picture and you can link one of yours to share with others.  Well, I promised pictures of our new Fur baby so I thought this would be a perfect time.
This is Lilly our new Maltipoo  (Maltese/ Poodle) she is a toy and weighs 1lb. but she is a fur ball of feisty.
My three year old brought her in the other day and thought it would be fun to roll her around in her brother's roller skate..yikes!!!
I hope you will join in on Foto Friday I think it is fun way to get to know a little bit more about our crafty friends. I will see you again in a few hours for The Sweet Stop Saturday.

Inky Impressions Dressed to Impress & DT News

Hello my crafty friends!! I am so happy to share that I am a new Design Team Member for Inky Impressions.  Inky Impressions has the cutest rubber stamps and they are made of the best quality rubber that stamp beautifully.  Today there is a new challenge starting at the Inky Impressions Challenge Blog
Dressed to Impress
We want to see you add something extra to your cards.  Whether it be a little or a lot of embellishments it is all about how you dress up your card. 
 For my take on the challenge I used Joseph and Lynette's First Day it seemed a perfect fit.  I thought the paper from Echo Park Happy Days is so cute by it self but to Dress it up a bit I added  a little bit of bling, swirls and ribbon along with the cute cherry charm that you can find here

 With that being said I used this cute Digi called Spring Ride from one of our two sponsors Bows & Berries.  Our other sponsor this week is the fabulous Glitterbabe Digis so I hope that you will play along for your chance to win.
I kept my card clean and simple this week and just let these fun papers called Blossom Soup by Jillibean Soup and the cute digi take center stage.  I made the sentiment and tag my self and used my Martha Stewart punch to add the flower details.

ATS "Tweet" Release

Hello!! How is everyone today? The nights have turned a little cooler which means the days aren't sweltering and we have actually been able to go outside and enjoy it.  Now if we could just get some rain  to help put out the wild fires.  Today (Saturday)All That Scraps has two new digis by C.C. Designs.  These little birds are just so fun!!
For my first project I used Tweetie Fall Digi and the sentiment was one I made up.  I created the bird house by taking  5"x11" piece of card stock folded in half and then cut two 1"x4 1/2" strips of paper and crossed them to make the the roof.  I then added my pattern paper and glued the roof down and cut the remaining corners off to create the shape.  I then added the oval Nestie to create the bird hole and decorated away. I was pretty happy with the way this turned out.
Shopping Our Stash- #16 Birds, Bugs & Beasts- I went with the bird part of the challenge and all of my paper and punches were pulled from my stash.

 For my next project I used Batty Tweetie and sentiment digi.  I have a few of these Halloween envelopes and I am hoping to create some more to make a little scrapbook.
And last but certainly not least Riley has made a card to share with everyone.  
 The ATS Digi Team has created some wonderful projects and you can find them HERE and the stop by the ATS Store and pick up Tweetie.

The Sweet Stop Sketch 125

Happy Sweet Stop Saturday!! How was your week? Busy as always here. The after school activities have definitely filled up the week and then crazy Mommy decided to get a new puppy, like 3 kids and a big dog isn't enough...heehee. I will try and show some pictures later in the week. 
And now on to some crafty business.  Here is my card for this weeks sketch at The Sweet Stop.  Yes once again I have done something a little different than my normal style.  I am just wild and crazy like that:)
As I am looking at this picture I realize that I lost a lot of the shadows that I added around the flower.  One day I will spend more time on taking pictures and get it figured out.  The stamp set I used is from Sweet 'n Sassy called Poppies & Sentiments and the paper is Laced Grace by Glitz Designs.
 The Sugar Babies
I hope you can find time to play along with us this week and don't forget to stop by and share some love with the rest of the Sugar Babies.

CMC Challenge Guest Designer- Fall Fun

Happy Labor Day Weekend!!! I am so excited to share my project today that I made as a Guest Designer for the CMC Challenge Group.  If you haven't already you really should join in on the fun,  There are great challenges and always great prizes to be won and you too could be selected to be a Guest Designer.

Challenge #26 FALL OR HALLOWEEN Theme using YOUR COPICS, COPIC REFILLS OR COPIC AIRBRUSH SYSTEM (Or ProMarkers if you have them).
 This weeks sponsor is The Stamp Fairy and I was given this adorable Chubby Scarecrow 1 to work with..love him!!  I used this great new fall paper by Bo Bunny called Forever Fall along with The Upsy Daisy & Dizzy Doily Die-namics by MFT to create the fall bouquet. I loved the unexpected "pop" of color this paper has so I played off of that.
Here is a close up of the bear so you can see the added touch of raffia to his sleeves and hat.
