Cupcake Bites

It's my daughter's third Birthday today and she picked these cute cupcake bites for her special treat...

They are a complete copy of Bakerella's. LOVE her blog :)

and I had a few that wouldn't fit into my container so I packaged them up. I plan to share with somebody sweet!
It won't be long now for the BIG 2S4Y contest!! Getting excited?!
Have a great day!

Sketch This #86~Tribute to my brother and my Dad!

I adore these new 'boy' papers from Cosmo Cricket!! I made two cards this week following sketch 86:

This one I sent to my brother for his Birthday...he loves cars. In fact, one of his hobbies is rendering concept car models....not sure if I stated that exactly right.... You can check out his work here if you are interested. I am well aware that I may be a bit biased, but He ROCKS!!

and I made this one for my Dad for Father's Day...shhhh! He loves planes...he is a pilot and his favorite hobby has always been 'poking holes in clouds'. :) Anyway, everything about that image and even the 'howdy' sentiment completely reminds me of my awesome Daddy!! So fun.

Supplies for both cards: Cosmo Cricket PP, May Arts ribbon, WRMK grommets, AC and Melissa Frances Rub ons.
It's my son's Birthday today so we are headed into an evening and a whole weekend of fun!! Looking forward to all of it. Hope you have a great long weekend too!

hello girls!

have you heard the BIG 2S4Y news?! Laura and Kazan are hosting what's sure to be a fabulous 5 week cardmaking challenge! How fun does that sound?! It all starts on June 1st so mark your calendars :) To read more about it, and to see the BIG prize, head over to 2S4Y!

I made this quick little card yesterday with some scraps I had laying around. When I saw the scalloped paper, I was inspired to use Kazan's sketch 26 again from last week :)
Supplies: American Crafts PP, Crate Paper rub on and Melissa Frances buttons.
I'll be back again tomorrow with my card for Sketch This! See you then.

Supplies: Kraft CS, American Crafts PP, Stampin' Up ribbon and Daisy Bucket Designs stamp.

It was my Birthday recently and my awesome hubby (and kids) got me a cricut!! I am so excited and a little overwhelmed with all of the possibilities. It is so fun, though, I love it!! So, here is my first card using the Don Juan cartridge...I created the window card base with the cricut:

Super simple!

Supplies: AC PP and stickers, May Arts ribbon.

And, here are a few mini cards I made using the same supplies and also the cricut: thanks cut~also from the Don Juan cart (the only one I have right now).

(these three mini cards will be in the upcoming October CARDS publication).

Well, that's it for me...just a few minutes till my oldest will get home from school, so I'd better get ready for him :)

Thanks for stopping by!

One month later...

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I've posted anything! SO busy this time of year!! If anyone is still checking on me, thanks! We've had Birthdays, T-ball, and most recently a fun event for my daughter...her first "ball" (pictures are down at the end of this post). Lots of fun times for sure, but I've been slacking in the creative department ;)

A couple of weeks ago, I missed the deadline for getting my Sketch This card into Janelle. But I loved the sketch so I made this one anyway...
based on Sketch This #84

Supplies: Scenic Route PP and stickers, AC sticker letters

And this is my Sketch This card for sketch #85. Janelle just posted this newest sketch today~along with all of the fun samples :)
Supplies: Little Yellow Bicycle PP, Daisy Bucket Designs Rub on sentiment, Fancy Pants pin and Offray ribbon.

and here is my little princess and her prince charming :)

ahh, these pictures make me so happy!
This one was taken by my very talented friend Shannon of Defining Details!

I had a great surprise this morning when I saw that a card I made for my Mom is being featured on the Cards blog!! How fun!
Take care my friends! See ya in another month ;)
