My Times 20/Pink Cat Studio

I got to use my new Q T Owl stamps to make this card for the Pink Cat Studio challenge on Paper Craft Planet. I used the Saturday sketch from Lauren's Blog. The PCS challenge was to use Pink, Critters, and Scallops. Get it? PCS.

Ismake003/High Hopes Challenge 14/CC202

Well I have found that I can get more challenges done if I combine some of them. I used the sketch from Ismake 003 and the colors from Splitcoast's Color Challenge 202 to make my masculine theme card for High Hopes Challenge 14. I used scraps of old papers from CTMH to make the card and then used the stamp Bear-ly Warming Up.

Sugar Bowl Challenge 2

The second challenge for the Sugar Bowl this week was THREE. Use three design papers, three embellishments, and as a bonus use three Sugar Nellie images. I used Maggie, Hamish, and Angus for my three images. The design paper is SEI Retrospect and my three embellishments are flowers, rhinestones, and ribbon.


Aren't these little cuppies just the cutest thing ever? This card is for the Cupcake Challenge 51 on Taylored Expressions. The stamp is also by Taylored Expressions from a set called Love Is Sweet. The paper is a mixed of CTMH cardstock and K& Co. design paper. I added some rhinestones that I picked up the other day at Michaels.

Bellaholics Anonymous Sketch 4

I got a chance to participate in the sketch challenge on the Yahoo group Bellaholics Anonymous this weekend. On the second Friday of each month they do a sketch challenge. I used Topiarybella from Stamping Bella.


I used my birthday/Christmas money to buy some stamps from Taylored Expressions and this is from the set "Sweet Celebrations." Aren't these cupcakes just so yummy! The sentiment says, "It's your birthday, eat something cute." I made this for our friend's daughter who turned 6 today. The sketch can be found at

Here is my card for Mojo Monday 69. I used Kissy Face Frog from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. The sentiment inside says, "You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your handsome prince."

SC210 and CC200

Both of these cards use the sketch from Splitcoast Stampers. The image is Flutterby Huggabug from Stamping Bella. I used my Cricut to cut the hearts.

This card uses the new stamp set from CTMH called Reach for the Stars. Having two boys, this was a perfect choice for me. The paper is also new paper from CTMH.

Top Chef Challenge

Taylored Expression is hosting a Top Chef Challenge using the stamps from their January release. The card above uses the new set Love Is Sweet. Don't you just love these little cupcakes!? I am in love with their other new sets of calendar cupcakes called A Year of Sweets 1, 2, and 3. They are on my wish list.
