A little chuckle!

Happy Hump Day!

Hopefully, your week is going well & you are ready for a little chuckle!  The older I get the more I appreciate a good chuckle & today's card should certainly provide that! I have had this Art Impressions stamp for years & still enjoy using it!  I always pair it up with another Art Impressions stamp that says "Happy Birthday....from one glamorous babe to another!"  I have several stamps I use this sentiment for & will share another one tomorrow.

I paper pieced the couch she was sitting on.   This just looked like the type of couch she probably has.  ha ha

Are you someone who loves a good chuckle with your cards or do you prefer a more serious one?

Thinking of You!

Hi, there!

Well, you know how much I love Stamping Bella stamps & this one was on sale so.......(the devil made me do it!)  ha ha  I love their Tuesday sales! You can pick up some of the most darling stamps for about half price. I cut them out with Lawn Fawn Stitched Square Stackables & Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Stackables.

What a great way to keep in touch with an old friend! You can leave the inside blank & do a handwritten note to catch up on news.  Emails are great, but it's always a bigger treat to get happy mail in the mailbox instead of junk mail.

Dies R Us Challenge - Kids Kards!

Hello, everyone!

Are you ready for another fun challenge?  This one is a really fun one! Today's theme is Kids Kards!
We all need those, don't we?  And how fun they are to make!

I decided to go with bright primary colors for my card since kids all relate to those!

All kids like to go to the park, and I think they all love cats & dogs! I had a lot of fun putting this fun scene together and these are the dies I used: Taylored Expressions Balloons, Impression Obsession Bench, Impression Obsession Plane With Banner, Lawn Fawn Stitched Tree Borders, Impression Obsession Cat Set, Impression Obsession Ddog Set, and Lawn Fawn Spring Showers.

Be sure to join in and submit a card for this fun challenge! You could well be the next winner and receive a gift voucher to the amazing Dies R Us Store! If they don't have what you are looking for, it doesn't exist!

The link to the challenge is here!

I can't wait to see what amazing things you come up with!


Of "Corsets" your birthday!

Hello, again!

I love this cute corset die.  I got it from Cheapo Dies which is a company out of Omaha, Nebraska. I first became aware of this company when Dies R Us offered some of their dies.  The other die I used was a Spellbinders Elegant Ovals set.  Another set you need to add to your collection!

How cute is this for a gal's birthday?  The sentiment inside says Of "Corsets" your birthday! which is just perfect for this die.  A simple black bow finished it off.

Back tomorrow with a couple of Thinking of You cards.  Be sure to scroll down to see the second post for today, the Dies R Us Challenge for the fifteenth!

A bicycle built for two!

Back again!

Since I have been sharing wedding cards, I thought it would be nice to include an anniversary card as well.  This was an easy card to do.  I grabbede a Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Oval Stackables and a Memory Box Bicycle Built For Two die.  I cut the bicycle in white & colored it in with markers.

I decided a bike built for two would be perfect for an anniversary card.  Afterall, riding one of those would be much the same as day to day married life.  You have to have a lot of cooperation & teamwork to be successful on your journey.

Have a fun birthday card to share tomorrow.

Wedding bouquet

Hello, again!

As promised yesterday, I'm back with another simple wedding card.  This one was made with a Marianne Design Circle Frame, Flourishes & Flower set and a Tutti Designs Wedding Bouquet die.

I grabbed one of my square embossing folders & embossed the front of the card for extra interest.

I'll see you tomorrow with a simple anniversary card!

QKR Stampede Challenge-Anything Goes

Happy Friday, ladies!

You know what that means! It's time for the weekly QKR Stampede challenge and this entire year the theme will be "Anything Goes" so grab your favorite stamps and join the fun!
I chose Digi# 24150-Astronaut for my card.  This makes such a cute little boy's card and we always need those for our stash don't we?

Kid cards can be tricky.  But I've learned they like bright colors & goofy animals so this should be a winner.

Be sure you enter the challenge & if you use a QKR digi, you actually win 3 free digi stamps. 

See you tomorrow!
