I was playing at the Gina K release party last night and saw this sketch challenge. I really liked the sketch but was too beat to play last night. Tonight, I jumped in. I was having a rotten day so I reached for the set that always improves my mood. This pig (and his animal friends) are really cute. They are going in my stash of cards for emergency use. You never know when a pig card will be needed!!

Hope you like them!!

paper giggles and a muddy puppy thank you note

So the last pink cards helped with the cheering up, but some frowns are tough to removed. Here are two more. How can these silly monkey's not make someone smile. I mean a monkey with a sparkley banana on his head would make me smile :)

What about a monkey holding flowers?? In case the monkey was not enough, I put instructions on the tag.

Also, this is the last week of Delilah's doggy school. I am in charge of picking up the "teacher" gift. I figured I might as well make the card. Delilah was a muddy puppy this morning, so that inspired this muddy puppy thank you card. What do you think?

Have a great day!

Pretty pink smiles

I have a couple of friends that are having a tough time. I decided to make two happy cards for them. They are both girlie girls so it was all pink for the day. Some coordinating paper, the cuttlebug, and the markers make it all good.

The first one is made from some stamps from Micheals. I love them, especially that little giraffe.

For the second, I wanted to see if I could pull off a card without an image stamp. I just used my curvy words get well stamp. I think I like it.

It has been a while since Delilah made an appearance. She needs a haircut. Poor thing. Still cute though. Those big eyes always make me feel better.

Have a good day!

catching up

So, I have been AWOL for a while. Lots of cards to catch up on and some blog surfing to do. Surfing will have to wait until tomorrow. Tonight, I post!!

Here are some pics from a stamping day with the girls. I was playing with pun fun from the new SU catalog. I LOVE it. Such cute images for some really happy cards. It is all SU with some watercoloring and cuttlebug additions. I tried to make subtle differences with the pairs of cards.

The next set is a set of cards for a variety of reasons.

The first two are friends birthdays. I really like this first one. Simple and cute. That embossing made all the difference.

The next was for a 50th birthday. I decided to avoid the tendancy for all black and dark and go playful and happy.

This one is a simple sympathy. I love the elegance of the Lovely as a tree set. The black and grey was a nice elegant solution to a somber card.

The last is a card for a friend who deserved to know how much he has helped me. A simple masculine card. Not my favorite of the batch but good.

The last two are all about the pink. A happy birthday and a thank you. Bright and fun.

Now you have seen my stash. I hope you like them. Any favorites or feedback. I am trying to work on taking my cards to the next level. Feedback is welcome.
What would you add or change? What do you like?
