Kids Birthday Cards

My girls have had a lot of birthday parties to attend lately, so I thought I'd share a couple of the cards that they gave their little friends. This top one was for my oldest (10 year old) to give to her friend. They have a little band at school where they sing at lunch and recess. The call themselves 'The Pop Rocks'. Cute, eh? Anyway, I kept this card simple, and just blinged it up to finish it off.

This one was coloured by youngest (8 year old) and designed by her, too. She made this for her little friend for their spa/fashion party. She even decided to add all the bling on her dress, I think she did a great job! That's Mommy's girl! :)

I have another DT sample project to show you for the newest challenge over at The Stampsmith Challenge, so soon so stay tuned on Feb 1st! Until then, it's not too late to join the current one! This month, the theme is 'Tags' and you have until the end of January to submit your project. So, what are you waiting for? ...come on over and join us for a chance to win a full sheet of rubber from The Stampsmith!

Ooh la la Pin Up

I thought I'd create a fun card for my hubby, Jim, for his birthday this week, so I came up with this fun pin-up card for him. I used a photostamp from the Pin Ups sheet by The Stampsmith.

The sentiment, Ooh la la is from Pink Cat Studio. A fitting saying to go with this knock out! I figured he'd get a kick out of this birthday card and may actually keep this one as apposed to throwing it to the wayside! lol :)

Puppy & Smiles

I have an early Valentine's Day card to share with you today. My oldest daughter loves puppies so I thought I'd make her card using this sweet little pup from the Puppies stamp sheet by The Stampsmith. The sentiment, 'Your smile lights up my heart!' is from the Say It Like It Is stamp sheet, also by The Stampsmith.

We have a new challenge going on over on The Stampsmith Challenge blog. We're doing a Tag theme for the current challenge - I hope you decide to play along in the fun! You have until the end of January to submit your tag creation using at least one stamp by The Stampsmith in order to be eligible for a chance to win a new sheet of rubber of your choice from Estelle! I look forward to seeing all your creations!

TSC26: Tag Art - Marilyn

It's challenge time again over at The Stampsmith Challenge. We all took a little break after the holidays, but we're now being challenged by Lynne with some tag art. I'm not one to make many tags, as I sometimes find it hard to create projects on a smaller scale, but I enjoy making them once I get into them.

I've used a fun 'Marilyn Flying Dress' image and embellished it with some ribbon, lace and bling to finish it off. My project measures 3.5" x 5" and I actually decided that my tag is going to become a magnet. One of my colleagues loves Marilyn, so I thought she might like this for her fridge or maybe on the corner of a metal picture frame.

I hope you decide to play along with us this time around for a chance to win some new rubber from The Stampsmith! You have until the the end of January to submit your creations. Pop on over to The Stampsmith Challenge blog to see some eye candy from the rest of the Design Team.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year, Everyone!

I'm back from a little break over the holidays, but mostly because I've been recovering from Pneumonia and have just had a set back from getting a cold. Hopefully, this additional round of antibiotics will do the trick to fix me up soon.

I used the Coffee Gal stamp from The Stampsmith for my card. I really like this vintage image and I thought it was fitting since she looks like she might be saying, "Cheers" or "Happy New Year!"

I wish you all health and happiness in 2012! I'll be back soon!
