There's a MOOSE on the loose!

Hi there!  It's Lawn Fawn release day and there's a moose on the loose!  Oh my gosh, I am so excited!  The wait is over and it's time to load up my cart with Lawn Fawn goodies from the winter release!! I was lucky enough to get my hands on the new Critters in the Arctic stamp set a bit early, and I couldn't wait to ink up the adorable moose!  Gahhhh, I just can't get enough of him!!

I pulled out a bunch of my other Lawn Fawn sets for this card too.... I used the santa hat from Hats Off To You, the tree from Sweet Christmas and the little birds from Making Frosty Friends.  The sentiment and banner are from the Winter Gifts stamp set.  That's one of things I love most about Lawn Fawn images... you can mix and match them all so well!  Don't you just love that bokeh patterned paper?  That's from the new Snow Day 6x6 paper pad.

That's all for now... off to go shopping and load up my cart!  If you are shopping today, make sure you put Critters in the Arctic in your cart too... you won't regret it! ;)  

Thanks for stopping by!

Mama Elephant & Me Challenge


Hi there!  Today I have a card to share with you for the Mama Elephant & Me Challenge.  This month's challenge is Watercoloring and Birthdays.  I am loving watercolors lately, and I just got the adorable new Carnival Cupcakes and Carnival Toppers and couldn't wait to play along! 

I wanted a soft pastel watercolor wash for behind my images, so I took some Distress Inks on an acrylic block and lots of water and brushed on light stripes of color and let them dry.  Then I cut out the panel using the Femme Frames die set.  I stamped, colored, and fussy cut the images, added some Wink of Stella pen and glossy accents to the cherry, and adhered it to my card base.  This card is being mailed, so I had to keep it more flat than I normally like, but I think it turned out cute.  I can't wait to play with these images some more! :)

Lawnscaping Challenge #88 - Texture Anyone?

Hello there!!
WAHOO!  It's Monday!  Why am I excited that it's Monday you ask?  Because today is the first day of school in our neck of the woods, AND it's time for another Lawnscaping Challenge!!



Challenge #88 is all about texture!  We are sponsored this week by the super fabulous Lawn Fawn!


For my card this week, I pulled out a few sets that haven't seen ink in awhile... You've Got Mail and Flying By.  To add texture to my card, I started off by running a white card base through my cuttlebug with a Tim Holtz embossing folder, then I sponged over it with a few different shades of distress ink.

Sending Love

Cat's Meow Halloween {Papertrey Ink}

Hello there!!

I know it's only August, but in a effort to prove to myself that I don't need any more halloween stamps, I pulled out my favorites and wanted to get some cards made.  I make very little for halloween usually, and I figure if I can have my projects finished before I stare at new halloween releases long enough, I won't cave and order them. LOL!

If you've followed my blog for awhile, it's no secret that Papertrey Ink's Tremendous Treats series is one of my favorites.  The scale of the images is perfect to go with the Cat's Meow set, and they are both such cute and whimsical sets that they compliment each other so well!

The spider in the Tremendous Treats set was a little too big, so I pulled out my Tiny Treats Halloween set and they were the perfect size.  And of course, I couldn't make a halloween card without the Spider Web dies! :)

Hello there!  Just popping in with a quick card!  I was perusing the Jane's Doodles store after seeing lots of cute pins on Pinterest, and saw on their blog that they were offering a free digi and sponsoring a challenge.  I think the little crab is adorable!  I paired the digi with a sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Life is Good stamp set. :)
