I used a sketch on the Stampin Out Alzheimer's site. The sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps. Now, not only can you pick up these cute designer rain boots tomorrow, but you can also grab these cute images being released.
This is I Totally Support You...check out what the DT has done with this image... she's very versatile! My DDs and I say this all the time with our arms wide open...I thought of that immediately when I saw the image...this will be a great card to praise them for something I'm proud of very soon :) This sentiment is my very own creation! I think I've finally figured out how to make them pretty LOL
And this scrumptious guy is Mr. Devil's Food Cake...make sure you have a look for his wifey, too :) Come back tomorrow for the last creation I have for this big release with Modern Sugar and don't miss out on your chance to win the entire new release...all you have to do is submit a card made with any MSB image!

Again, this card was a bit of a cleaner upper...the CB panel was already done and I used scraps for some of the mounts & the punches...and even the main image! The colors are Kiwi Kiss, Elegant Eggplant, Pink Pirouette and Rose Red this week's challenge at Riley's Color Dare.

This card was for the inspiration challenge, based on a Vegas wedding cake that was blue fondant with white accents. I heat embossed Baroque Motifs on Bashful Blue...took about 15 minutes to make this one...which was nice because it was nearly midnight for me by now.This was for the CSI Challenge... to use a frame on a card. I had these Unity Stamp Co sentiments from the Canadian Express Image Swap and it just seemed to be the perfect thing to frame. The chipboard frame is K&Co from last year's Christmas collection, and I just highlighted a few words with SU markers. EZPZ Lemon Squeezy :)
You still have time to play along today if you'd like. You have until tomorrow night to get your cards uploaded. Check it out!

When I saw this ant on the High Hopes web site a few months back I near FREAKED OUT! My sister and I have a history with the High Hopes ant & song... when we were kids we used to have to share a room when sleeping at my grandmothers and one night we got to giggling over this song so hard and long that we got in trouble :) Lucky for me, this stamp was a new release coming out and I just got it the other day! And they've come out with some other ants that I'll have to get soon too.
So now that I have a few (well, I couldn't buy just one stamp, now could I?) High Hopes stamps, I'm going to participate in their weekly challenges. This week we were to create a card for the guys... so I chose guy-like colors, but I'll probably send this one to my sister :) I seriously need to practice my watercoloring, tho... I didn't get the shading quite like I'd hoped.
I liked this color combo so much on that stamp set that I made another card! This one is all Stampin Up!

OK...on to two cards. I did both of these in about an hour tonite while DH ran out to do a couple of quick errands. I knew when he came back he'd want to watch a movie and I wouldn't get any more crafting time today, AND the drugs were kicking in pretty good, so my throat wasn't too bad right then, so I scurried around to put these two goodies together.
This is another entry into the Digiments Challenge Michelle is having. Have I mentioned that I LOVE this concept? This card was sooooo quick. I just printed the digiment on a quarter sheet, trimmed it down, stamped Lovely as a Tree in Creamy Caramel, added some mats & ribbon and VOILA! A quick and simple and perhaps even MASCULINE card! Would you believe I just got Lovely as a Tree last week? It was one of those sets I knew I should have, but just never seemed to order. I have sooo many plans for it, you're gonna be sick of it in a couple of weeks :)
Now this card is for the PaperMakeup Stamps Release Party Challenge (you can find all the challenges in the Forums on the store site). This challenge was to use the colors Black, Grey, White and a soft blue. They suggested Baja or Bashful blue, but I found this beautiful toile paper in my stash and it called for Bordering Blue, so that's what I used. I also had to go with Vanilla because printed paper was Vanilla, not white...but I still think I qualify. This card wasn't at all what I planned to do for the challenge...but I quite like it. I'm going to try to do another one with the REAL colors because I think it's just a beautiful serene combo.
Katie (thanks for all your kind words and more this week especially)
Dawn (for the constent encouragement)
Michelle (for the kind encouragement for the future)
Michelle (just for making me giggle on a daily basis)
Rachel (because I think she needs a little love right now :) )
Check out the Modern Sugar Blvd. STORE and BLOG today for new releases and a challenge. The Design Team all used this cutie pie image, a sketch and a color combo to make our cards and you wouldn't believe how different they all look! Make sure you check out the deets on the blog later...I'm on the far east coast, so it's not up quite yet :)
