Tweet vactaion is almost over

so I am still stamping with furry. I really want to work on doing challenges this next year and I also want to send cards so I stocking my stash as it is pretty much out. Here is what I worked on this morning before Maizie got up.
I saw Curtain Call Color challenge {act 62} and thought I could go for this. It is adorable in fact these are some of my favorite colors.
I gathered my Close To My Heart papers; Crystal Blue, Sweet Leaf, Cocoa and White Daisy.  I also had this cute pattern paper. I forget what level 2 paper pack it is from maybe emporium.

I stamped a little with this cute new Basic Grey set I got yesterday at Hobby Lobby...super fun it is called Basic Notes. I also was playing around with CTMH's cute set Hot Diggity I started with the forg but ended up with the bird. I couldn't come up with a good layout so I went to one of my favs....Mojo Monday. I looked at some old sketches and found one I like.
I just love this little bird. I have never made a card that I didn't like with it. I love the little music notes. fun fun fun. I wanted the bird to have an orange bill and orange feet so I pulled out sunset ink and inked up the feet and beek and did the rest in Crystal Blue. I also stamped another bird totally in Crystal Blue and then cut it out and popped it up

the little worm below cracks me up...under the worm is that basic grey set and in tiny letters it says Bla bla bla. so funny.

I also always like to finish the inside of my cards so I used the stamp of the month from March 2010

Home Sweet Home

I love a good patwork card. I would say that this is one of my go to designs. I think it stems from my love of one of my favorite books when I was little Patwork Puppy. I could never seem to get enough of that book I loved all the patterns and colors. As you can see I am still playing with the We R Memory Keepers Tiffany line. I do love it so...brigth playful sweet patters everywhere you turn.  
I continued on the inside as well.

Here is another view of the house you can see that I pieced it together and popped it up. I also like the way the fence turned out in the background.

Mojo Monday on Wednesday :)

So today's mojo monday card is just a quick simple hello.

Cardstock is some more left over is all Bazzil so it has some texture to it. The stamp is from PTI Fillable Frames 1. I have also had these flowers laying around forever and ever and finally found a great way to use them.

Wow 2 in 1 day?

Can you believe I am posting again? I sure am. I am on Christmas break and so I have a lot more fee time than normal. I have been making cards cards and more cards and had just enough to make a scrapbook page. For some reason the colors turned out a little funny in the main photo but it looks better in the close up's

I saw Becky over at the PageMaps blog was having a contest with a sketch I thought it was a cute sketch. I flipped it and then they layout really started coming together.

I used up the very last paper from my February kit from Personal Scrapper. Again the line is Tiffany's from We are memory keepers. Super cute and girly.

Here is a close up maybe you can see all the sparkles on the papers.

Here is the way to do it....1 wear your pull up on your head. 2 get a good book 3 use the potty.

Another shot where you can see the popped up layers.

Friends are like good books

Here is a card I made using the All Booked Up set from Papertrey Ink. I have had this stamp set and the for quite some time and when CHA was in Chicago this summer I bought the cool die. Ok so back to my story I have grabbed this set to play many times but just have not found a way to use it on a card until now. It is just something quick and simple. I thought this would be good to send a friend who could use a little pick me up.
Here is another view. Funny side note to the story. The scallop circle is one that I have had laying around forever and ever. I got married in 2007 and my friend and I were just punching those out chatting and laughing when all of a sudden I realized that we didn't need it to be in celery but in chocolate! I have about 20 of them so I am glad to finally be putting them to good use. I found that they fit perfect behind that die. The nesties are a little small  or a little big but the Mavy Punch is just right.

This is officially the last card that I made with my Personal Scrapper February 08 kit. I am both happy and sad to see it is gone. I do love this line of papers.

Consider it Cased 2

Well I am back with what I hope to make a regular thing. I have been on a stamping frenzy and making fun cute cards while still using up my February 2009 kit from Personal Scrapper. I finally broke out this adorable little girl from My Favorite Things. I got her at CHA this past summer and have not really had much of a chance to play with her. I googled Best Medicine and saw this card. I loved it so much that the only thing I really changed was the paper..

I used my Copics to color her in.

Close up...don't you love the sparkles in the paper. Adorable!

The inside of the card. I love to finish them too.

Another thing I learned a while back when coloring with the Copics is to layer the colored in part it give the image even more depth.

I hope you enjoyed today's card. I also wanted to let you know that a friend of mine is having a blogaversary over at her blog. I hope you enjoy all her cute projects.

Luv Bug

So I mentioned in my post yesterday that I was using up some paper...well here is some more. This little car was pretty fun to make. I just paper pieced the car and for the headlights I only had clear sparkles so I colored them in with my copics. I love doing that it makes my options so endless...

There really isn't much else to tell about this card. I did just kind of made up the ribbon with left over
It is popped up as you can see here.

and the inside. Not to fancy.

The best thing about this card was it was simple and fun.

That is what the sign says that I made for a co-worker who recently retired. For the past 7 1/2 years we have worked together side by side. For at least half of those years I have been telling her to retire, she deserves it and will love it. She loves to quilt and so when we decided to make banners for her party I knew what I wanted to do. Make a cool banner that looks like a quilt. After many false starts with all sorts of different papers I finally went with A Perfect Day and the word Enjoy.

After I decided which quilts to use I marked out my grid and cut all my tiny pieces. Mmmm...who's idea was this anyway. Haha
I found my quilts online and used real ones as a guide of where to put what pattern paper

Making progress

Some of the bits hung off the edge but I knew I was going to cut it with the Top Notch Die from Stampin Up

Ok here are the individual letters. I hope you like them.

In the end I decided to put the banner up and down so that if she wanted to she can hang it in her sewing room.

Materials: Perfect Day from CTMH, Die from PaperTrey Ink Mat Stack 2, Buttons and Waxy Flax from CTMH, Cocoa Cardstock, Juniper Cardstock, Tulip Cardstock, Chipboard Letters Stampin Up

Let it snow let it snow let it snow...

We have been getting a lot of this lately.
I don't know where the time has gone but I have been working on a banner for a party that is comming up. I will be able to share it next week you are going to love it! It is gorgeous and bold and for a co-worker who is leaving us. Tonight I am going to get busy on some cute Christmas tags for a shoebox swap on Sunday. I hope you are all well and have been getting lots of scrapbooking and cards made.
