Warmest Wishes


It's time again for a new Anything Goes challenge at our 7kids Challenge blog.
I chose to use the new SugarPea stamp set called Have An Ice Day
I love how it has a Birthday sentiment with it. I have a hard time making winter Birthday cards that don't look like left over Christmas cards, so this set is great. It is very versatile because  It can also be used for Christmas.
I hope you will be able to join us for the challenge, we love to see your creations.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Card Making :)

Christmas Tags


Merry Day after Christmas.  I can't believe another Christmas has come and gone :(  It went by too fast!!!  But as fast as time flies there is always a last minute gift to give and I  made these tags for those  last minute gifts. They were quick to make and I used up my scraps too which is always a bonus.
 I hope you enjoy your Holiday weekend and are able to relax a bit. See you next year!!!!

All Occasion Masculine Card


Happy Halloween everyone.  While I don't have a Halloween card to share with you today, I do have an all occasion masculine card to show you.  I always need a good masculine card but seem to never have one on hand.  I made this card by using the Come Away With Me 8X8 Paper Pad by Graphic 45
and a few items I had in my stash. It was so quick and simple that I made a few extra to have on hand.
Hope you have a great  Halloween and are able to recover from the sugar overload over the weekend. LOL

Snow much fun with Mama Elephant


Here's my card for the new anything goes challenge going on at the 7kids challenge blog.
When I got this fun stamp set, Up and Away Clear Stamp Set from Mama Elephant 
and the landscape trio dies, I had the idea of one of the cute animals riding the umbrella down the snow covered hills.  And this is how it turned out. What do you think?  I always love to use a stamp that's not for a Holiday to make a Holiday card. That way you get more use out of your favorite stamps. Hope you will join us for this challenge. Happy Card Making :)

Care package using SugarPea Stamps

I really need a new camera. LOL I was also in a hurry to take these pics  so I could get this care package sent to my daughter.  So The color isn't the best. Oh well at least I remembered to take the pictures huh?  I just wanted to share a few of the items I sent to her


I really thought I was clever of me to pair a lint roller that I decorated with the rice rice baby stamp set from SugarPea designs



After all, with the saying Just Roll With it, it was begging for me to make something that would roll.
 SugarPea has such fun and creative sayings to go with the stamps. You could use the Just Roll with it saying so many different ways. The possibilities are endless.


 I got this great idea for the tissue holder from one of the Design Team members at SugarPea Designs You can check hers out on her blog Lisas life lines .  I think it was very clever of  Lisa to use the You Blow Me Away set for this tissue holder.

On Top of The World


Happy Friday everyone!  I am here to share my card this week for the 7kids store blog.
I was so excited to finally get my hands on this stamp set called  On Top of the World Simply Gorjuss Cling Stamp by Docrafts.  I've been wanting to make a card for my Daughter who's favorite band is Imagine Dragons and they have a song called "on top of the world".  She is also leaving for South Korea on Monday the 22nd and I thought it would be cute to send it to her. I'm hoping she will always stay on top of the world while she is clear across the world from me!!!!!

I hope you all have a great weekend. Happy card making :)

Travel Journal


 Hello everyone, we have a new anything goes challenge going on at the 7kids challenge blog.
This time we have put an optional  twist on it and if you want you can "get wordy." All you need to do is use a sentiment on the card. I made this travel journal for my daughter and I guess you could say I went over board on the wordy-ness. LOL.


Here are some of the items that I used. They can be found in the 7kids store
