Guys 70th Birthday


I had alot of fun making this card for a very special someone's 70th birthday!  I used the cutest monkey image from Meljen's Designs and some free birthday digi's I've accumulated.  I colored all the images with my copics and cut the monkey image out with a spellbinder die.  I used some red and gold cardstock - I embossed the red with a birthday folder and then used a corner slot punch so I could insert the embossed red cardstock into the gold cardstock.  I used pop dots on the monkey, the balloons and the present for dimmension.  Lastly, I used my Gelly Roll Pens to add a little bling, some baker's twine to give my birthday monkey a bow and some Fired Brick distress ink from Ranger around the edges of the images, just because that's what I do :)

Happy Birthday Guy! I'm so lucky to have you and Linda in my life and so happy you are on the road to a healthy recovery!!!!

Mummy Puppy Card


This is just the cutest image from Meljens Designs.  I had so much fun coloring it with my copics.  The backround is made from a haunted house embossing folder (which I rubbed a white ink pad over to help the image pop a bit), the bats are an EK punch, the black spider ribbon is from the 99c ribbon bin at Michaels and then I used a purple spider embelishment from Favorite Findings.

This card has been entered in three challenges:

Holiday Snowmen


Wow, a holiday card... I'm not ready to except the holidays are right around the corner!  But...I couldn't resist the opportunity to use this snowman digi from Meljen's Designs... I'm a huge snowman fan and I love this digi!  I colored the digi with my copics and cut it out with a spellbinder die.  I also used some scrap christmas backround paper, my EK snowflake edge punch, a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and a holiday sentiment stamp.
Check out the challenge  -this challenge was to use ribbon - and check out the great digis!

Fall is Here!


The cool, fall weather has arrived!  Now if we could just keep fall from turning into winter I'd be one happy camper!  I love the fall.. the leaves.. the pumpkins... making a scarecrow.  This cute scarecrow comes from Meljens - there's lots of great digis there to choose from!  The pumpkin is an old DOTS stamps from back in the day.   I colored both images with my copics, added some scrap backround paper, embossed some cardstock with my cuttlebug, some spellbinder leaves and a few added leaves from Recollection. 
Happy Fall!
