Just Poppin' By!

Good morning all my crafty friends and Happy Monday.  I hope that your week is starting off on the right foot.

I decided to whip up a cute and quick little card for a friend of mine that I haven't seen in awhile.  With kids and jobs, its so hard sometimes to get together, or talk, as often as we'd like or used to.  I just wanted to send her a little note to let her know I was thinking of her.

I had just gotten this stamp set from Some Odd Girl called Breakfast Friends that I've had on my wishlist forever.  A recent win over at Simon Says Stamp allowed me to finally get it!  Woot, woot!  I absolutely adore this little duo and think it works perfectly to give out a shout out *and a smile, of course* to my friend!

Totally precious, right??  This little toaster and his friend are colored in Copics.  The paper is a mix of Recollections craft cardstock, DCWV blue cardstock and Paper Studio DP.  The sentiment is from the Breakfast Friends stamp set as well, and is inked in Momento's Rich Cocoa ink.  These buttons have been laying around in my stash for quite some time and were threaded with some twine before adhering to the card.  I used a Fiskars punch to give the corner treatment a little something extra.

Well I hope you all have a wonderful day!  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Happy Thoughts!

Good morning my crafty peeps!

It is rainy and dreary here in Jersey today so I had to make something bright and cheery to chase away the clouds.  This creation definitely did just that, and I'm super excited that I was able to get it done right under the wire for The Greeting Farm's FFF Anything Goes challenge!

A friend of mine was kind enough to get me one of my favorite TGF stamps, Flirty Anya *thanks girl - you know who you are!!*, so I had to ink her up right away.  She is so adorable and easy to her!

This cutie was brought to life with my Copics and I added some Yellow Stickles to the rose in her hair for some extra yumminess.  The papers are a mix of Recollections kraft cardstock, Bazzill yellow cardstock, and the American Crafts My Girl collection. The sentiment was from the Taylored Expressions Many Minis Occasions stamp collection and was inked in Momenta Rich Cocoa ink.  I used some Queen & Co. self-adhesive pearls and some resin coca roses in my stash.  Underneath the gingham panel, I used a Fiskars punch to finish it off.

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

Birthday Flowers

Good morning all my crafty friends! 

A dear friend of mine just celebrated her birthday and I thought I would use this precious CC Designs stamp to create her birthday card.   She is from the Swiss Pixies collection and her name is May Day Birgitta, which you can find in the CC Designs store by clicking here.

Swoon!! I love her little haircut and her little shoes!!  They remind of me of ones I had when I was a little girl!  I colored up this sweetie with Copics and added some Yellow Stickles to the flower centers.  On the frill of her dress, I added some Stardust stickles for a little pizazz.  The papers are from the American Crafts Color Crush collection.  I then stamped off one of the sentiments from the Taylored Expressions Many Minis Occasions stamp collection in Momento's Rich Cocoa ink.  The teal flowers are from Recollections and I added some orange seam binding from my stash to finish it off. 

Oh, and did you know that CC Designs is hosting a DT Call until October 20th?!  Woot, woot!!!  Click on the banner below to take you to the post on their site to find out all the details!  What a fabulous opportunity and I'm crossing my fingers, for sure :)  Wish me luck!

Hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
