Keep On Rockin'

Hey folks!

I have a quick post today to share a masculine, CAS card *gasp*!  My daughter's boyfriend is celebrating his birthday today, so it was time to put aside those girly and cutesy stamps for something boyish.  So challenging for me!

Her boyfriend is into guitars so I thought it only fitting to use the adorable digi stamp from Some Odd Girl called Guitar Kody, which you can find in the SOG store by clicking here!

I used the current Sweet Sunday sketch and the current challenge on the SOG facebook page which is Stars and Stripes as inspiration for my creation.  I stamped off a sentiment from the SOG Music Mae stamp set using Frost White Colorbox Pigment Ink.  The papers were a gift from my friend Gina.

Thats it for me today!  Hope you are having a wonderful day!

A little hello

And when I say little, boy do I mean it!!

The challenge over at Tiddly Inks this fortnight is anything tiny like an ATC or a gift card holder, or a tiny card.  So, being as tho I have not done an ATC in ages, I decided to try a 4x4 card thinking that it would be an easy task.  Ha!    What was I thinking?  Well it definitely challenged me, thats for sure!!

Here is my creation:

I colored this cutie patootie with Copics!  The papers are from the Simple Stories/ Summer Fresh collection and I just love them to bits!  The sentiment is from the Taylored Expressions Many Mini Occasions stamp set and is inked in Momento Rhubarb Stalk.  I decided to round the corners with my Making Memories corner rounder and then slapped on some cute Washi tape to finish it off!  Simples yet totally adorable, don't ya think?

Hoping you'll join all the fun over at the TI challenge blog!  There's plenty of time to enter your creation!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  Hope you have a wonderful day!

Many Thanks

Hey my crafty friends!

Its been hard to find some time to craft with the kids home from school , but I managed to make this card in piece mail, and finally finished it up in time to play along with the challenge underway over at Some Odd Girl's facebook page.

The challenge is called Wings and Things.  I decided to drag out my SOG Fairy Magic stamp set for this one.  She is still one of my all time faves, and I never grow tired of coloring her up.

She is colored in Copics *of course, tee hee*.  I used some papers that I won in a RAK and added a Wilton doily behind her.  The beautiful pink flowers are from Prima and the metal roses are from Momenta.  In the upper left corner, I adhered some metal finished pearls from Queen & Co.  I used a punch to create the tiny butterflies and the metal sentiment is from Momenta as well.

The challenge runs through Monday, July 22nd!  Hopefully we will see you over there with your fab creation!

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a peek!  Have a wonderful day!
