Panty Raid

ok so I have this friend who has a b-day coming up and she is quite the kick in the pants (pun intended!) So when fair time rolls around in the very small town that she lives she like to lat her hair down and enjoy time with family and friends so she went online and found her a pair of

"party Panties" They were quite cute and had a little martini glass on them and they said "I need a stiff one" Now I have just heard the story and have not seen the panties so I am not sure that mine even come close but I made her this pantie card for her upcoming Birthday.I used the bathing suit bottom form PDDU and cut the ties off, I did this on CDS and just made them so big that it would not cut the ties. Then put it together with glue. The paper is for DCWV rock star Now on the inside I printed (now this is not for the faint of heart)

" Its your Birthday...

So you deserve a stiff one...

and in those pantie I am sure you will get one!"

Crabby thank you

We had a party for my husbands birthday this last weekend, and he got a crab trap from his brother and sister in-law and so I thought that he should send a thank you and I have this cute little crab punch and I was going to make a crab trap but that was a little to much for me this week so instead I went with a window card and "trapped" the little crabs in between. I made this using DS ( I am becoming such a junkie ;) I then added a little tag with a studio G stamp

Special order baby card

Ok I had a blast with this little guy I have a good friend that needed a baby card for a good friend they love all things western so this was a natural choice.

I layered all this out on the DS (man that is a time saver, paper too!) Used PDDU and NA then I inked every thing and stamped the face (peachy keen is there any other?) ran the hat band, kerchief, and diaper through the CB. Then heat embossed the boots to give them a little shine. I covered some chipboard with the same paper and stamped with these great little wood stamps I got at Craft Warehouse for $1 (per set upper and lower) They are great but a little hard for a control freak like me cause it is harder to get them straight like clear stamps not quite sure where I was stamping :p. I then added some ribbon and a boot from the collection of Jewelry that I do not wear any more (think of it as recycling ;) Then I I made a pocket on the inside for a gift card.

Live Laugh Love

This is something that is hard for me to do I am not good at sympathy cards it is such a hard subject. So I thought that I would go int eh direction of celebrating life rather than the loss of it. I know some might think that is not the right sentiment but i know for me that is the way that I try to look at loss. tho think about what that person meant to me rather than focusing on the loss of them. This is an 8 1/2 by 3 1/2 tri-fold card (my 1st!) I used the birds & swirls embossing folder, some ribbon, and a few lace hearts that I cut and hung on a ring from the ribbon. I used the MS lace punch, then I stitched along the inside dots for a little color.

Cards for River Fest

I have been very busy trying to get up a good stash to take to River Fest with me here are some cards I did over the weekend I would love to know what you all think!

I have seen this Owl card done by many others before me but I just could not help making one of my own! I used DS for the card and the envie. It is hard to tell from the photo but the brown paper on the owl is flocked and looks really neat in person. The inside says "Woo loves you baby"

I just love this cut from HEA so I used DS to make this card any little princess would love to get. I used the Martha lace punch on the envie

Ok so I decided that I needed a few shaped cards! I love my Big Bug and figured I should use some of the great things on some of these carts that I have. I made this using DS and PDDU it is hard to tell from the picture but "Mr. Bones" is cut out in the front and the patterned paper that you see is on the inside of the card. Happy Haunting is a rub on. I also made the envie from DS

ok I have had this little guy laying around for some time now I made him for a project that never quite happened. I made the baby using NA and the fireman outfit is a sizzix dress up die. the inside says " I know how much you like a guy in uniform. Happy Birthday"

Love these girls you can just do so much with them! the hat is a rub on the pumpkin is a brad. I used the treading water punch some ghost and chip board stars that I inked then added UTEP to. the sediment is a stamp

Ok I just love Lola Rose and her Sister I am really wanting to get another download of these girls they are just too cute! I made the greeting using word art and a dollar stamp. the metal charm is one from a card making set (it is suppose to stick to the card but I used my handy little crop-a-dile to make a hole then used the paper tagger to adhere)

This was just one that was to fun to pass up I am trying to get some variety in my cards and this is just too cute
I always for get how much I love the PP cart until I cut something from it I really like how this one came out. the inside says "wish you were here"

This is a fun little birthday cards that I did using PP. the inside says " I hunted and Hunted for the best dog-gone birthday gift around, but i had to settle for the best dog-gone card instead Happy Birthday"

Girly Bithday set

Ok I loved the box so much that I just had to keep making them. Then I hit a snag something went crazy with my CDS and I had to remake the box that I had saved for my first 2 projects. The up side though is I think I like the new box better! I Used Lilly and Lola Rose for this set (I just can no get enough of these images!) I also used my new boarder punches two of them are from Fiskars and the 3rd is a Martha Stewart one. I used the computer to print the insert for the 2 cards with writing in them the one that just says happy birthday is a CM sticker, which there are a few of those on the fronts of the cards as well
Thanks for looking!

Halloween card set

This was a fun set to do to play around with some Halloween paper and other goodies. I made the box using CDS (same as the glasses card box). I used DCWV for the paper with a few others mixed in there. I am not sure who makes the brads, I am one of ;those who put everything in other containers when I get it home to store it so I sometimes forget who makes what. I did use a few Prima's on the out side of the box. The pumpkin shapes are from PDDU cart. Thanks for looking
