I’ve Moved!!

Please join me at the new home for my blog, over on Blogger! For those of you that subscribe to me via email, I think there is the same option over at Blogger – you’ll just have to change it up a little bit! Sorry for any inconvenience!

Blackberries Nestie Frame

PAD_NestieFrame_tbuOk, so check this out — are you ready?? Pez-aDoodle Designs has this frame for Nesties 2 available for $1.99 as a digital download!!!! How fabulous is that? I really am loving that more and more companies are offering digi stamps — they are so cool! You get the image in two different size, so it is like a two-for-one deal!

I cuttlebugged my two layers – the Memory Box dp and the Pink Pirouette cardstock. I added a bit of handstitching at the bottom, and a pretty gold edged organdy ribbon — I really wanted the frame to be the focus. My sentiment is from SU.

Sorry for the late post today – I’ve been in a whirlwind today trying to clean my craft room (I finally got enough off the floor to vacuum!!).  Have a wonderful day!!!!

InStyle Stamps Wednesday Challenge!

ISS_Ariel_tbuThis is Ariel, a digital image from InStyle Stamps. Isn’t she adorable? I sized her large, so she could be the main focus of my summer themed card.

She is colored with Copics, and then I painted Shimmerz on her top and he tail. So she is quite sparkly in real life!

I didn’t do much else, except use little bubble self adhesive thingies in the corner. I had some random dp that reminded me of the ocean, so I used that. My card base is River Rock, and my matting layer is Blue Bayou.

Head over to the Instyle Stamps blog for all of the details on our challenge, what the prize is for playing along, and how you can get in on the action! Also visit the blogs of the other Design Divas – their links are on the right sidebar.

Pez-A-Doodle Wednesday :)

PAD_StudioG_tbuThis Studio G card was made using the Sketch Tuesday card over at Christian Papercrafts Magazine. It was a challenging sketch for me, and I’m still not sure I love the card.

I used Studio G Stamps I purchased from Pez A Doodles Designs, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. The card itself is pretty simple. My base is Bordering Blue, then a layer of Lovely Lilac, then a layer of dp from a big stack of Me & My Big Ideas papers that I got for Christmas.

God Bless the USA

LAD_GodBlessThe USA_tbuOhmygosh! Have you SEEN the new Stars and Stripes digital paper and stamp singles of the month from Lizzie Anne Designs???? I’m in love!! For this sweet little card, I just printed out a piece of the patterned dp, and a piece of the solid red, which is designed to make matching totally easy (and it does!). I stamped my image on GP White cardstock, and layered it a red mat. Then I popped it up on monstrous pop dots, added a star for some bling, and a mini clothespin for cuteness.

I must say, Lizzie Anne is really getting me into digital paper. I was skittish at first, but I love the way it turns out! You should definitely go check all of their’s out – they are so much fun!

It’s Color Monday Time Again!

CPCM_CM08_tbuThis is for today’s Color Monday challenge on the Christian Paper Crafts Magazine site. I love this combo of chocolate, navy, and ivory!!

For my card, I used a base of Chocolate Chip, a layer of Not Quite Navy, and a layer of Very Vanilla. I topped it off with a pice of Basic Grey dp, from their Periphery line. I stamped my cross, from Our Daily Bread Designs, in Chocolate Chip. I stamped my sentiment in Not Quite Navy, and used Nesties to cut everything out. At the top, I added Not Quite Navy brads, and under the sentiment (from Stampin Up)I put two pieces of chocolate grosgrain ribbon.

Happy Birthday to the Queen!!!

QKD_BirthdayBlogHop_tbuIt’s Vicki’s birthday today, so we all thought we’d get together and do a birthday blog hop for her! Thanks to everyone who joined me from Nina’s blog! Now, if you’ll join me for a rousing rendition:

Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday , dear Vicki,

Happy Birthday to you!!!!!

We sounded great, didn’t we? Ok, I may have been a little off key, but I tried hard, lol! I made this card for Vicki’s birthday because the crown is what she wears (She is Queen Kat after all) and she is a wonderful person :) Mean as heck if you make her mad, but truly one of the sweetest people I know! Be sure to head on over to Tina’s Blog for some more Birthday Hop goodness, check the QKD Blog for more fun shenanigans, and go to the store for an amazing sale!
