To the Moon and Back!

Rabbits and hippos and bears, oh my! 
Are you ready to get your cute on for Inspired By this week? 
I was, here's where it took me...

There's not one thing stamped on this card. It's all patterned paper, dry embossing, a little die cutting and some sweetness from felt and buttons. I'm thinking this will find it's way to our little Sweet P!

Okay, now it's your turn.
C'mon, you know you have some cuteness in your stash!



We've enjoyed a few beautiful days of summer weather. Not too hot with cool nights. Seems that's ending this week as the heat and humidity come back with a vengeance. Hey, that's summer right! But you came here for a card... not a weather forecast! How about this one, I made it the other night for Freshly Made Sketches.

This paper reminded me of a circus for some reason, so I reached for this little lion from Stamps by Judith. Someone took a Polaroid of him since he's so cute! My dies and sentiment are all PPP.
Thanks for taking a minute to visit, I love it when you do!


Will it be easy?

Hey there, I'm back this weekend with another guest design post at Just Us Girls! This week we're looking for a die cut window. 

I decided to create a window opening for my sentiment with a Spellbinders label die. Two of the dies layered together created trimming for that opening! I thought all of those little frames or windows in the background paper worked well with this week's challenge. With all of that business I added just a couple of rolled roses, leaves and a button. All of my patterned paper is from MME.

The hardest part of this card? Rolling those paper roses, felt is so much easier! 

I'm off to see what the DT ladies have created. 
Care to join me?


Good Times!

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A. !!

How's that for the ear-bug of the day ~ haha!  Check out this Inspired By photo, pretty nifty huh. Not everybody has gone surfin'. Check out my little Elton boys parading on the beach!

These little fellas (100 Proof Press) remind me of my hubby and his four brothers. Truth be told, they would be more staggered in height due to age, but it still works for me! Don't let their cuteness fool you though. See the three pink items being marched along? They swiped those from their three sisters!! Yep... good times!! 

I have a feeling this is going to be a fabulous gallery. Just look at those gorgeous sunset colors! What are you waiting for, you know you want to join us this week!


I Love You!

Hey, guess what... I'm guest designing with the team at Just Us Girls! Yep, I get to design along with those talented ladies for the entire month of August! Lets get this ball rolling shall we. First up is word week and this is where it took me.

I remembered I had this little suitcase and sentiment left over from a long ago 12 Kits of Occasions kit. When I was digging around for some patterned paper with the right shade of green, I came across this cute scrap. I'm thinking it's Cosmo Cricket? The piece was just big enough to use my Spellbinders postage die and I cut the sentiment with a PPP tag die. Those little tickets along the bottom are Jenni Bowlin, remember her cute doodads! 

Okay, get your thinking caps on and 'travel' along with us this week!
