Ismaki 40

I used the Ismaki challenge sketch for this card. The stamp is from Sugar Nellie called Rory. He is just the cutest little lion. This is from their new line of stamps called Home Grown.

Papertake Challenges/CC193

I combined the last two Papertake Weekly challenges to make this card. Last week's challenge was a sketch challenge and this week's was called "snow." I used the snowman from Sugar Nellie as my main image. The colors were from the color challenge on SCS. I used my new snowflake punch to make the snowflakes for the corners. They are punched from this really cool (no pun intended) glitter paper I found at Target. They are very sparkly in real life.

High Hopes Challenge 8/Mojo 61

The High Hopes challenge for this week is Brads and Buttons. I used button brads and clear buttons to make this baby card. I used the sketch from Mojo 61. This baby dragon stamp is from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I just love these little guys and cannot wait to get some more. Hopefully soon!

Bellarific Friday

Today I dusted off some old Bellas and got to work. I used the sketch from Bellaholics Anonymous for this card along with the colors from the Bella Color Challenge on SCS. I have had this Knitabella image forever and never used it. It was a dreary rainy day in NJ today and I would have loved nothing more than to cover up under an nice knitted blanket and watch old movies all day, but no such luck.

This next card is Tinkerbella. I decided to use this stamp for the Taylored Expression Cupcake Challenge because it reminded me of our trip to Disney. I got a shirt from Disney World that has all of the characters and princesses on it and my youngest son, Dylan, loved looking at Tink.

High Hopes Challenges 5 & 7

I have been wanting to do the challenges on the High Hopes blog for quite a while now, but I only had a small amount of stamped images to use while I was waiting for my stamps to arrive. I got my first order of stamps yesterday and wasted no time in inking them up. I used the sketch from HHC5 to make the card. It also fits for HHC7 since the theme of that challenge was Sparklemania. I used Stickles on his wings and spots, as well as rhinestones for the flower centers. This stamp is Gavin the Giving Dragon. I just love all of the new dragon stamps from High Hope and cannot wait to get more!

Back from Disney World

We got back from Disney on Saturday night and it was a great week away. Above is a picture of the boys with Mickey. Jaymes asked me last night if we could go back to Disney World this weekend. Wishful thinking!

Below are some of the card I did yesterday. I am trying to catch up on all of the challenges I missed while I was away. I hope to be caught up by the end of the week.
