May Bumper Card's Friday....woo hoo! Not a whole lot going on for me this weekend. I have lots of house cleaning to do, YUCK!! We have a big graduation BBQ coming up next weekend, so I want to get things sparkling ;). This is my bumper card for May over at the A Muse group. I really had a lot of fun making this card for my recipient for the month, who I happen to of had last month too. :) Hopefully she doesn't mind receiving cards from little ol' me two months in a row. Sorry for the poor photo, the weather has been a little gloomy around here, so I wasn't able to snap a photo outside with some decent light. I used an A Muse notecard. I'm not sure what the color is but I think it may be Jasmine. The DP is from Memory Box. I used Spica Glitter pens on the flip flops to add some sparkle. I think the "Flip Flops" was one of my first, if not the first, A Muse stamp in my collection. Who knew it would grow into the obsession that it has today, LOL!! Happy Friday to you!!

Happy Birthday Brother

This is a card I made for my brother's birthday. He's turning the BIG 40 this year. I'm quite sure he doesn't read my blog so I think it's safe to post it here since I know it has not arrived to him yet in the mail. I have a REALLY hard time with "masculine" cards but I think this one turned out somewhat masculine. The A Muse "Birthday Builder" set makes it really easy to make quick & painless birthday cards & it is perfect for milestone birthdays or any birthday for that matter. If you don't own this set, I would highly recommend adding it to your collection.

ATC Peek #2

Happy Friday to you! Are you doing anything fun this weekend? The weather is a little gloomy around here, so I'm not sure what we will be doing. I thought I would share my ATC for the Memory Box group for Kristina's swaps. I kept it really simple. I colored the image with my Twinkling H2O's. The striped dp is by Memory Box. I added a little twinkle to the top of the cupcake with my Stickles, but it is hard to see in the photo. I hope everyone has a safe, fun, & relaxing weekend!!

ATC Peek

I hope you are having a nice weekend so far. The weather is HOT, HOT, HOT here. A little too hot for my taste. It was over 100 degrees yesterday. It is supposed to be slightly cooler today, but still very HOT! I thought I would share a peek of my ATC's for Kristina's ATC swaps. Tracy (HEY GIRL!) shared a SUPER cute peek on her blog yesterday, so I figured I might share a peek too! So if you want to be surprised, do not scroll down. :) This is for the A Muse group. Kristina let us choose between an A Muse, Elzybells, or Missy Ballance image & I went with this cute little shopper Elzybells image. The sentiment is by Stamping Bella. Enjoy your weekend!!

ETA: I had a question in the comments section if Copics were used & if so what colors. Yes, Copics were used. Here is a list of colors: I used E21 Baby Skin Pink(skin tone); Y38 Honey(shopping bag), YG95 Pale Olive(shopping bag); B95 Light Grayish Colbalt(dress); E27 Africano(purse, belt & shoes); E37 Sepia & YR24 Pale Sepia(hair). HTH :)

Here's a close up pic.

Happy Mother's Day!!

Hey friends! Happy Mother's Day to you! I'm just getting in a quick post today of the two mother's day cards I made recently. We just returned from camping this weekend, so I'm a little pooped...... lots of catching up to do. It seems like I was rushing at the last minute to get these made and in the mail (nothing like waiting until the last minute), so I didn't really get to whip them out SUPER FAST!! Looking back at them now, I think I would have made some changes, but oh well :). One is for my step-mom, and the other is for my mom. Have a happy day!Card Info: Notecard, Ribbon, "Duck Family" & "Oval" stamp by A Muse Artstamps; Sentiment by Savvy; Ink by Palette & VersaMagic; Copics; Misc. cardstock.
