Happy Birthday BFF

So sometimes my camera takes very clear pictures and sometimes not?!  I took this picture at the same time as I took the my last post picture (with the exact same settings) and this one came out so much more clearer.  I promise I am working on getting a newer camera and some classes!

Anyway the same friend that asked for the last card asked me to do this card for her BFF.   I just happen to be in Micheal's (again) and saw this BFF stamp in the $1 bin and thought it would be perfect.  I just loved playing with MFT rolled roses too and the DP paper is one of my favorite sets.

Hope you like and thanks for stopping by.  PS its still raining so I guess I will just have to craft all day! :)

Mojo Monday 209

A little late getting this up..... its been a busy busy week, closing on a place for my grandparents and the painting begins but has now stopped due to me being sick.  Yes a place not lived in for about a year is a very dirty place and not good for your sinuses.  Ok but enough about that :)

I made this card for a friend for her daughter's upcoming birthday.   She will be 21 and her request was anything with a lot of purple in it.   I think I managed that :).   I used the Mojo Monday 209 challenge for the layout and my Stamping Bella Stamp- Cakeabella as I thought she was fabulous enough for a 21 year old.  
Enjoy your Sunday :).

Halloween Treats

It is raining cats and dogs out there.   So it was a perfect day to stay in and craft.   I spent the day with some fabulous ladies making some Christmas cards (yes I said Christmas).  Each year I attend a workshop called "Stamp a Stack" that is held by Stampin UP Demonstrator Beverly Scott.  Its held in her amazing studio and we are asked to bring a snack. 

I decided  to bring turtle caramel apples and craft them up a bit making this really cute tag.  It was my first tag!  I bought the bags at Michaels and just added my crafted tag.  Well Happy Halloween it will be here before you know it (and yes so will Christmas).  Thanks for stopping by.

Double Harvest Duty :)

What can I say I really like my PTI Vintage Picnic stamp set :).  I combined two challenges into one card this week.  I played along with the KinderStampO Sketchy Wednesday  and the CR84fn color challenge.  Just love Jess's cute card layout and these color combo's together.  

I have wanted to incorporate newspaper or book page in a project for a while and couldn't get creative enough.  One of the fabulous Design Team Members for KinderStampO - Celine Regnier just completed a card using a book page that caught my eye and I sorta cased her project on my card.   To check out her card click here. Her card is so spooky cute!  

Well thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week.

Mummy Dearest

I really love this time of year and now that we are officially in October, I am so excited to craft away for Halloween.  I have seen so many great projects with this stamp set from MFT.  It's called Who's your Mummy?    I made this card for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.  I hope I did it justice :).

Speaking of MFT,  they recently changed their website layout,  you should stop by and check it out and see the "brand spankin new" section, as always Kim has super cool stuff.
