How cute is this?

Today the challenge over of SCS was to make this adorable gift card or money holder.  It was easy and I think it turned out super cute!
I already have orders from my husband to make some for the girls at his office.  This one was not perfect but, now that I know what I did wrong I can fix it on the others. 
Thanks for stopping by today!

Holy cow!!

High hopes challenge is to make a card 1,2,3.  3 flowers, 2 brads and 1 saying. Here is my card for the challenge. I hope I made it in time for the challenge. I received this image this summer , it just makes me smile! The saying is computer generated and I made the background paper to look like cow hide.
I had a hard time placing the flowers, so I had to ask my 12 year old for help! This is his reply,  "Mom where do you like them? " 
Me" not sure Nic."
Nic " you know Mom!"
Me" No, I don't Nic!" "do you like it here, here, or here!" as I move the flowers around the card.
Nic" Mom you know where you want to put the flowers."
At this point I gave up because I knew he really could care less!
The only reason he came was because I called him.  All he wanted to do was get back to his video game!  I picked the three spot that you now see, What do you think?

Winter cardinal

Today's card was for the MMTPT and for Wednesday's sketch challenge.It has been a long time since I got to make a sketch challenge card and I was very happy that I could combine the two challenges. I had uploaded this card Wednesday and by Thursday afternoon the card was gone.
This is an FYI, make sure you name your cards something unique when you upload to SCS.  It will get deleted  if another card has the same name.  Be careful!!! you could lose your card like I did. 
    I just love cardinals and believe it or not I did not have one stamp with a cardinal on it. I know,  GASP!!! I had to go to Michaels for a school project, got to love school projects that parents have to do too, and I pick this pretty guy up. I think I have to make a few more of these for Christmas time.
Oh.....what do you think of the bow?? Some of you know I have a bow handicap, I have the hardest time making them. Well, I got myself the bow easy and I just love it!  I just had to figure out how to use it and follow the directions. I have it down now and it makes  easy beautiful bows.
Thanks for stopping by.

A gift for you!

I found this adorable image at a stamp store by me. I had to drop my daughter off at a party, which was quite a ways form my house.  I remembered that I was close to one of my favorite stamp stores and had not been there for a while, So.............. Why not? I had 2 1/2 hours to kill.

I was so glad  I went because I found so many wonderful,  cute and fun  stamps. This is one of them, It is a Penny Black cling rubber stamp called a "slapstick". I used my Copic markers to color it in and lots and lots of glitter. Are these guy just the sweetest little hedgehogs? I fell in love! I knew I could not go on with out this stamp. It is a sickness!  All of the stampers have it, and sorry to say, there is no cure. I don't think I want one! *Grin*
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

This is for the featured stamper over at SCS.
The person featured is Dawn, AKA: Treasureoiler. She has a treasure for her gallery,  such beautiful work.  I fell for this card because for the fun color, she used Bermuda bay, I picked Tempting turquoise.  I told myself I was not going to buy the in colors this year.I am just not to crazy about them. I used a gray copic marker to make the boarder around the snowmen. just colored on the turquoise paper.  
Thanks for stopping by my blog and have a wonderful day!

Today's card is for a co-worker, it was her birthday today and I wanted to play with my Mo's digital pencil image.  I saw this image and it just put a smile on my face!  Is this little guy just the cutest?  Mo's  images are all so cute and very fun to color. I still need to get the hang of printing out the digital images and how to use my computer but, I still love them!!!
. I entered this in the DP2 challenge site, the challenge this week was to make a card that "glitters". I have two glittery flowers and the frosting on the cupcake also has some stickles that is sparkly. Thanks for stopping by and have a good night!
