Live Out Loud Chick

Happy 'Avengers Age of Ultron release day' Eve!  Wow, that's a mouthful. Lol. I can't wait to see the uber sexy Chris Evans aka Captain America, along with the rest of the avengers, kick some ultron ass. Swoon!

I used the Kraftin Kimmie WW April Sketch and the B/W Challenge

Today is my day over on the Quick Creations Blog. I'm showcasing a Kraftin Kimmie stamp along with some beautiful Bo Bunny paper. I created a mother's day card for my friend that is one of the least conventional mothers I know :). Her favorite band is Metallica, who she has braninwashed to like :) and loves creating and crafting in black and white. So inspired by her, I went for this look. It was the first time creating this look with markers. I'm not great with markers so I hardly use them but I need to practice to not be fear them. lol. All items have links to the Quick Creations Shop. While there, make sure you take a look around as QC is having a sale. You get an extra 20%off on top of her low prices. This is the time to stock up, so go on over and check it out. Thanks for stopping by!

Hang In There

Hi there. I wanted to quickly share a CAS card I created for a kitty friend that needs a little pick me up. It's not much but I know from experience that something as simple as a card with a few words can bring a smile to one's face. In those times, when you are unable to be there physically for that person, a simple token of friendship can help. It's also nice to send out thinking of you/hello cards to your friends and family that aren't having a hard time, they'll love the surprise and gesture. So if you haven't sent out a card/letter lately, give it a try :) 
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello. Happy Monday! It was a beautiful spring like weekend here with light rain and wind. Since it isn't typical weather for us, its always nice when it pops up. In honor of our weather, I created this card. I wanted my little bunny to be sitting among a bed of flowers, enjoying the breeze and sun :)

My Currently Album
Hi there! Before we get started, I just wanted to remind you about the QC sale happening. You get an extra 20%off on top of her low prices. This is the time to stock up, so go on over and check it out. 

Happy Thursday! That means its Big Bang Theory Day and today we get to hear Bernadette utter those 6 horrible words to the guys, "Why don't you call tech support?" Lol. We shall see what happens :)   Today is also my day over on the Quick Creations Blog. I'm showcasing a Frou Frou stamp from The Greeting Farm and Simple Stories paper. 

I created a scrapbook LO for my CURRENTLY album. My 'Currently' album is my version of a Project Life album. I really like the concept of the BH system but its hard for me to keep up with it, so this year I opted for this version. Every Sunday I create a mini 6x6 LO for my Currently card of the week , which is a card for me to journal on and write my current likes etc. (The Currently card comes from rukristin, click HERE for her blogpost). This time, I created a page to hold my 4 cards for the month of April. Since I fell behind by not writing down my info on the cards for the past few Sundays, I decided to play catch up. My theme for the month is all about Enchantment, Fairy Tales, Love and Dreaming, so this stamp and paper pack was perfect. All paper used (the envelope, embellishments on the LO and on the journaling cards) come from the same paper pad. That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by!

Rock On, Rocker Chick!

Hey there, Happy Friday! I'm here to quickly share a Rocker Chick card. My cover girl is pretty bad ass and her companion is bad ass as well who reminds me of Jem. For those that don't know Jem, shes an 80's cartoon icon that had amazing pink hair and star earrings that transformed her to a mega pop star. I would say that definitely qualifies her as bad ass :) I'm regretting not coloring Rocker Chick's hair purple, turquoise, pink or even rainbow ;) but oh well, I can experiment next time.

I used the Kraftin Kimme April Sketch for my card along with a mix of papers and embellishments.

Hello Dollie with Kitty

Hi there! I'm here to share a card featuring the new Dollie with Kitty from The Greeting Farm. She is completely adorable with those ringlets and that look of contempt. She reminds me of a girl (somewhat spoiled) that adores her cat but not so much you. Lol.
I was inspired by the theme of clouds, blue, Alice in Wonderland, fairy-tale (wow that's a lot of inspiration, lol). Ok, Thanks for stopping by!
