"Sweet Hello" Mini Card Set

Here is my last post featuring the color combo Stone, Buttercream and Denim. Originally my mini lollis were just random circles on a card but I didn't like the look of it so I tore them off. I knew I wanted to make a gift of some form with them so I went with a card set. I'm going to make 3 more but use a 'Thank You' sentiment instead of the 'Hello' one so there's some variety. I know my friend will love them because she's always in need of mini cards and she loves twinery twine. 

So this is it for now. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your Tuesday!

Handheld Windmill Card

Here is my 2nd post featuring the color combo Grey, Yellow and Blue. I know that the whole windmill thing is probably done and over with but I decided to still come to the party, albeit waaaaaay late. Lol.  Actually I was inspired to create this when I saw that Michael's is selling 4 miniature ones for $3. I said to myself, I can do that. I definitely have plenty of paper to play with so why not give it a whirl. Any-hoo, I like it. It's a focal point and my wrist takes a break from coloring.

Yellow, Blue and Grey Card

Happy Tuesday! Here's a male birthday card I created using only dp and this color combo. I had never worked with only these colors and I really liked the look of it, so much so that I made a few other things. Ok, this is it for now. Thanks for stopping by!

Graphicat Sketch #21: Bazinga

Happy Monday! Today begins a new challenge over at Graphicat Designs and I have for you a *Smash page. I got on board with the whole *Smash craze last year. I thought it was a great idea to get back to some form of scrapbooking without the pressure of creating fancy layouts. Sadly for me, I did as much as buying the book with very few accessories and that was it. Lol.  So now, this year I want to refocus on other things aside from cards and *smashing and scrapbooking is one of them. I really want to try to record my memories, thoughts (both bad and good) and starting on a small scale will get me there.

Ok so I created a page in honor of my favorite tv show, The Big Bang Theory. I slightly tilted the sketch and used the Bazinga sentiment from Cheri's shop. I found this awesome AC ribbon in my stash that was perfect for this. Because lets get serious, you cant think of the big bang theory without thinking of comic books and sexy nerds. hehe

Thanks for stopping by!

Caution... Anti-Valentine

Happy Friday!! It is going to be gorgeous today, up into the late 70s, a great start to the fun and busy weekend that's going to happen.

Ok so it 's Feb.1st and Valentine is around the corner. Oh not a fan of V-day you say, well neither is my little grumpy ballerina. Lol. These are some fun new anti-valentine sentiments from Graphicat Designs. The sentiment here is Caution, I Dont Do Vday.

My second card is my sample for the current Graphicat sketch (#20). You still have time to play along and if you do, you'll receive the girl digi, Prisoner of Love as a freebie. Cheri is giving it away to all participants. She looks a little pathetic but that's whats so great about her. Lol. The sentiment on this card is Happy Unimaginative Day.

Well that's it for me. Have an amazing Friday. Thanks for stopping by!
