Shoes by Bugaboo - birthday wishes

It's me again!!

I've been crafting away in my craft room and haven't really got out to blog about it...Just took a break to show you one of my latest creations!!

I just love Bugaboo digis!! Not only do I get their freebies every Friday but I've won some and purchased some too!! They are really versatile and fun to color.

As I've mentioned before I need to make some Teacher's gifts, so far 3 for me and 5 for other people...YAY!!  So I am crafting my little heart away these days. Don't want to wait until the last minute ;))

I've made this exact same card with a french sentiment as well, since 3 of the gifts are for french teachers. I hope to show you more soon.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Challenges 4 Everybody, #6 Anything Goes
The Squirrel & the Fox, #29 Ribbon
Anything Goes challenge blog,  #79 Anything Goes

1st Halloween

Good morning everyone!!

Last night I worked on a sweet card for the little Princess in our family, we call her our "PRINCIPESSA" (princess in Italian). I've spoken about her before, her name is Giada!! Melissa if you're reading this STOP!!!  You'll see it in a few hours..LOL!!

It's going to be her first Halloween so I thought it would be a great for me to make my FIRST Halloween card..YAY!!

Here it is:

Isn't it adorable! The image is from Bugaboo Stamps Stamps, it's supposed to be three babies sitting in a row dressed in pumpkin costumes but I  cut the one out since I'm making it for one little girl.

I used a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #57:

and followed the Catch the Bug October Bingo Challenge at Bugaboo;clip_image002

I really enjoyed making this card, it's always special when it's going to someone special!!

I'm entering the following challenges with this card,

Hubby's B-day cards

TGIF Everyone!!

Today I want to show you the birthday cards that I made for my hubby last month but never had time to post!!

It's really funny!! I just love it!!

My husband thought so too! I wanted to tell him how much he really means to me and I think this does it, instead of the old fashioned sappy way..LOL!!

Here is a closer look at the sentiment, it's from Ginger's House, I just love her!!

and here is the card that I made for my boys to give to their dad...

I let them choose from my library of digis and stamps. I can see why they chose this one...their dad BBQ'd all summer long so they related to this cute monkey. The digi is from Pollycraft and his name is Chester.

I'm entering the following challenges with my Chester card;
By the Cute & Girly, Birthdays
Cards Galore, Anything Goes
Crafter's Companion, Birthdays

Thanks for stopping by, See you again tomorrow, fingers crossed!!

love & create ...with a smile :)

Craft's Meow / October Sketch

Hello everyone!!

YES I am back, well back to blogging that is!! I've never stopped crafting, it's just not easy to find the time to blog. I got a lot of BIG orders out of the way, one being a wedding favor for a friend, 250 of them..YIKES!! That was fun but I'm glad it's done. I also had many card requests and still do only now I want to begin blogging some of them again so that my customers can check them out but most importantly so that I can be part of an amazing group of crafters again...ALL OF YOU!!!

Today I worked on a sketch from The Craft's Meow, it's their October Sketch:

Here's my card, or should I say cards..

I used my Flower Garden stamp set from The Craft's Meow, I bought it a while back but it's the first time I used them..I know!! These are the first cards that will be going into my teacher's gift boxes for Christmas. I'm making a few of them actually, for other people as well. I know the teachers will appreciate these more than another candle holder or frame..LOL!!

I'm entering the following challenges:
The Craft's Meow, October Sketch
Stamp'n Doodle, anything goes
Jackson's Digital Expressions, Challenge #27 CAS - use 2 dies (this is very CAS for me..LOL) I used my circle die and scallop circle die.
