Hello everyone and welcome!

I created a card for a friend of mine that will be hosting a 4th of July BBQ.
The cute sentiment is from Joy's Life That Tastes Punny stamp set. 

The girl is from the Cricut Playtime cartridge, the flag is from the Stand and Salute cartridge, and the spatula is from the Country Life cartridge. 

Your next stop is Laura's blog, Laura's Crafts and More

Thanks a melon

Hello everyone! 
I know I've been MIA lately, but I'm taking summer school classes and each one is FOUR hours long! :O Anywho, over at Joy's Life DT we are sharing projects with watermelons since Summer is here. :) 

The sentiment is from the Yummy Puns stamp set. :-) This stamp set always comes in handy! 

Stop by the DT blog to see the rest of the DT's projects. You'll love them!

Have a fun, crafty day!

Rock on!!

Hello everyone and welcome to another Krafty Girls challenge

This week's challenge is to create any paper craft that has a musical theme. I created a card that I plan on giving away to a friend for her birthday next month. You can never start too early, right? :) 

This awesome rocker chick is from the Rock Princess cricut cartridge. I had forgotten how much I love, love, love my cricut. 
Her rockin' face is from Peachy Keen's Laughy Taffy stamp set. 

I'm not sure if you can tell, but I added glossy accents to her "bracelet" :) 
 The crinkle ribbon is Goblin Green from 3 Girl Jam's Spooky Bundle.  
The twine is Honeydew from The Twinery.
The green faux stitching is from a Sakura Souffle Gelly Roll pen. These pens are amazing on black paper! 

The sentiment is from Pink By Design's Rock On stamp set. 
I blinged out her boots with Icicle or Crystal stickles. I mixed the bottles and couldn't remember which one I used. :( 

Thank you so much for stopping by and don't forget to join Krafty Girls

Have a fun, crafty day!

Made Especially For You's 2 Year Blogoversary Blog Hop!

Welcome to Made Especially For You's 2 Year Blogoversary Blog Hop!

If you've come from Eileen's blog, The Scrapping Actuary, you're in the right place! If you just came across the hop, please start at the beginning over at Made Especially For You.

When Ashley asked me to be part of her 2 Year Blogoversary Hop I was honored. I've known Ashley for about a year. She allowed me to be part of the Made Especially For You Design Team. She truly is a genuinely nice and caring person... don't forget insanely talented :) 

Instead of having a theme for the hop, Ashley put together a bingo board full of some of her favorite crafty things and we were to choose at least 3 of them and create a project.

 I chose crinkle ribbon, twine, and pearls and made a card. :)
Who says we can't use doilies and pearls for manly cards? Nooot me. 

I created the sentiment from My Creative Time's You're My Best Buddy stamp set. The sentiment mat is from My Creative Time's Just Simply Live. For the pearls, I used Liquid Pearls in Bisque and Platinum Pearl

The twine is Chocolate Truffle from Trendy Twine. The crinkle ribbon is Antique White from the Pink & White Bundle from 3 Girl Jam.
 I used Amy Tangerine thickers to spell out "dad". 
The chocolate pattern paper is from Echo Park Paper.

Today I'm sharing a 3x3 Thank You card I made. It was super easy and quick to make. I stamped the word pattern background stamp with only Versamark ink on Kraft paper. The sentiment is from My Creative Time. The scalloped card and its layered heart are from the Doodlecharms cartridge. I added some Crystal stickles to the doily.
