Here for you...

Hey there! 

I'm running behind this morning so this is gonna be a speedy post. I'm playing along in the MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge 217 and I used this sweet I Pick You Pure Innocence for my card. Because she is holding that lovely bouquet of flowers, I chose to pair her up with the Garden Party papers from Pebbles. Cutting those pretty papers into the banners from the sketch was a breeze since I used the stitched flag dies from MFT as well. Quick and cute, nuthin' wrong with that. ;)

Alrighty, I've really got to get moving.
Later gators!

What's this? Another Greeting Farm card already? Ya know... I hadn't planned on it but when I woke up to find this free gift digi for Super Secret Stamp Club members sitting in my in-box yesterday I had to print her out and make a card. I didn't notice a name ascribed to her so I'm calling this awesome girlie Mermaid Anya II. Since the papers I pulled to go with her seemed pretty neutral I had a lot of choices on how to color her up. In the end I went with a very Ariel inspired look. Love her, love her, love her... you know me mermaids and fairies just make me happy. So thank you Marie and TGF for this fun surprise and I will be sure to sign up for another three month term on March 1st for sure!  :)

Ok, it's going to be a long day and I've gots to get myself ready for it.

O.M.Gee... how stinkin' adorable is this chubby little fairy from A Day for Daisies?! Her sassy self confidence caught my eye right away as I was checkin' out the ADFD store this past weekend and I just couldn't resist putting her in my cart and printing her out right away. She was just as insistent about getting on a card quickly as well so here she is in all her glory. I paired her up with this great jar paper from Dear Lizzy and some POW glitter cardstock to make the card sparkle as much as this fab fairy. And because there is so much sparkle and shine I'm going to enter this into the 'add some glitter' challenge over on the ADFD blog

Well, I've gotta get a move on.

Cray cray adorbs...

Hello, hello again! 

I can't believe we are starting the last week of February already. I'm giving myself these next few days to make a few more various cards because after that it will be time for Easter cards.

Today I've got a card for the Farm Fresh Friday challenge over at TGF. This week the theme is 'Pinky Pink' which leaves things pretty wide open so I went super girly. I had originally planned on using one of the SSC stamps but when I came across this Miss Anya from the Summer set something about her fun and flirty style had me choosing her instead. I paired her up with some old Love Elsie paper and embellies and these super fun sentiment stamps from Paper Smooches. I'll admit it... I've been known to use phrases like 'totes magoats' and 'cray cray' more than once or twice, so it was great getting something like that on a card. I know, I know... I'm such a nerd, LOL!  :)

Alrighty friends, time to get ready for work. 
Thanks for stopping by and I'll see ya again tomorrow!

Favorite thoughts...


I think it is safe to say that I am finally over the worst of this cold... thank goodness! Yesterday wasn't great but I got a lot of rest and was coughing less and less as the day went on. At least I should be able to function at work for the next couple of days. :)

When I sat down to color yesterday I knew I wanted something quick, as my bed and an afternoon nap were calling me. And I realized that it has been ages since I inked up one of the stamps from my Sister Stamps collection. Lovely Minako hadn't made it onto a card yet so this seemed the perfect opportunity to rectify that situation. The papers were pulled from my scraps, which always feels great though I never seem to make a dent in them. Even though for some reason Minako's kimono looks kinda peachy in the photo she really is 'pretty in pink' in person. I enjoyed coloring her up so much that it has me hoping there are some new Sister Stamps coming out soon. Since we've already gotten mermaids you know I'm not so secretly hoping for some SS fairies... they would be totes adorbs! ;)

Ok, time for me to get this day started.
Have a great weekend and I'll see ya on Monday!

A moment with you...

Hi guys!

Well... still sick. Still miserable. I'm not working today because I just have to rest and hopefully get over this dang cold. I did get a super simple card done yesterday and here it is... I inked up Gorjuss Girl Ruby with her little kitty pal resting on her lap. Such a cute stamp and I'm pretty sure that this is the first time I've gotten her on a card. One sheet of paper, a bit of ribbon, and a sprinkling of flowers and this one was done. Which is good 'cause I didn't have the energy for much more than that, LOL! :)

And now I think I'm done too, gotta get back to bed for as long as my kitties will let me sleep.
