Best Buds Birthday

Here is another card I created on this past rainy weekend.  I was in need of making a masculine birthday card up and when I came across this boy and his dog, I knew this would be a great one to send to my brother-in-law for his birthday.
The Best Friends Luka stamp is from La La Land Crafts.  Stamp coloring was done with simple color pencils.   Designer papers were taken from the packet of Perfect Vacations Paper Pad from American Crafts except for the solid colored paper which was part of my stash of unknown named papers.  Sentiment is part of a pack of stamps set  I got at Michael's Store and it is done in a light blue embossing powder.

Puppy Love Birthday

Rainy weekend was a great time to stamp up some stamps which I have not yet had time to work with.  I fell in love with this cute little boy and his puppy getting ready to hang a celebration banner.  Cute as can be!  It was driving me crazy that I had not yet had time to do anything with this one yet.    So I took my opportunity and ran with it so to speak....so, here it is....

   This stamp is called Puppy Love from The Greeting Farm.  It is colored with colored pencils.  Card layers consist of white cardstock, a design paper from my stash and topped off with the Darice Happy Birthday designed embossing folder.  The embossed background is colored with glitter gel pens.  The picture seems to have a discoloration in some spots that do not appear on the card itself . Or at least not that I could physically see what the camera made it look like.  Oh well what can I say.
Thanks for stopping in for a view.  I hope you have a great day!

Splish Splash

Here is a fun card I put together this past weekend.  Rainy weekend is great time for some much needed craft time!  Well it kept me out of trouble too.  Lol.  I didn't want this no sun weekend to be a no fun theme for my card.....so when I happened to come across this little guy it brought a smile on the face.  This little guy is great for a Fun in Sun kind of card. 
This little guy is Summer Luka from La La Land Crafts.  Stamp is colored with my colored pencils.  Background is a Darice embossing folder titled  Palm Tree and Wave which was also colored in with colored pencils and a bit of odorless mineral.  Embellishment is something I got at Michael's but cannot recall packet nor company name it's from. 

Under The Weather


I had an opportunity over the rainy weekend to work on some cards.  Gotta love those rainy days for indoor activities.....makes for a great excuse to put in some crafting time.  Rain, rain and more rain.....what better time than to make a card with a rainy theme and then combine it with a get well theme to make  a great themed card for someone special who just gone through with a major back surgery.  Ouch!  Even just saying or writing it makes it sound painful.  Yikes!  I cannot even imagine what its like to go through that type of surgery.  God bless those that have gone through that. 
I love the La La Land Crafts!  I am addicted to those cute stamps.  I chose to use Marci With Umbrella stamp and colored it with colored pencils.  Some areas were blended with some odorless mineral.  I had found some pretty in pink polka dotted design paper that I thought might make a cute colored rainy affect for this card.  I thought the flowered design paper might make it look like she is in a flower garden.  Well that is what my thoughts were as I was planning it out in my mind.  Lol.
 I put it together on a plain white cardstock.  Sentiment has been white embossed.  Sentiment is also from La La Land Crafts and came with the Marci with Umbrella stamp.   
Thanks for stopping in for a viewing.  I hope you enjoyed it.  I hope you have a happy scrappy day!

Spooky Greets

Hope every one's Labor Day Weekend was good.  I had a quiet weekend and took advantage of the down time by making up some Halloween cards for my Grandchild to use to give everyone in her class.  I set up an assembly line, and went to town so to speak, to kick out some simple spooking cute cards.   I will show all the samples just because I could not really pick the spooking cutest one to post this morning.  Without rambling on and on, here is my latest creations.  I hope you like them.
All the following stamps are part of a Spooky Stamp Set from The Greeting Farm. The sentiment stamps are also part of the Spooky Stamp Set.   Aren't they spooking cute?!?!?  Stamps are colored with color pencils.  Design papers are from My Minds Eye's Every Day Tango and Heidi Grace Designs' Candy Corn/Jeepers Creepers paper, along with some other papers and colored cardstocks that I had in my stash collection.  Embellishments are alittle bling on the first card, Trick or Treat and Happy Halloween ribbons on all cards, and used a La La Land Spider Web Die to decorate several of the cards.
