I am super happy that the caardvarks challenge this week was color it. Can use pencils, markers, water color etc.... I am SICK of Christmas cards! I needed a break and coloring with pencils is a good relaxing time for me!! Both stamps are Paula's Best.

Happy Birthday Card

I was going to post my Thanksgiving cards, but I forgot to take a picture of the cards before I sent them out (opps!) So here's a newer Birthday card that I made. I really like the cosmo cricket paper and wanted a bold card. Bold paper, big ribbon and big sentiment.

My sisters Christmas Cards!

I make my sisters Christmas cards for her every year. So here is this years card. All pattern paper is cosmo cricket. Snowflake from Martha Stewart crafts. Stamp is we are memory keepers.


This card is totally copied by Kristina Werner. She made a card just like this last week. I have had this piece of paper left over from some other cards that I made and I just kept looking at the paper on my desk. Well last week I was inspired by Kristina. I used the 12x12 paper so my little monsters took up more room. I also changed the sentiment, I thought it would be a great card for my nephew when he was done with swimming class or something to be proud of the accomplishment. I did not add the flowers since my paper was already bigger. I also added fake stitching! Thanks Kristina for always inspiring!!
