This is a card that my son Caleb received from his cousins. He was invited to a Little Pumpkin Party and this was the adorable invite for it. I believe that this is a Niki original. I really liked the layout and the way that it's opens, I thought it was pretty creative. So kudos to you Niki, love the invite. If you would like to see more creations from Niki click here. Click here for the Recipe for this card! Thanks for invite and we will see you there!

I love Halloween I think that it might actually be one of my favorite holidays! I love seeing all the little kids in their costumes especially the infants and toddlers they are just so darn cute. Plus who doesn't love candy! So I was excited when I saw these cute little treat cups in our mini catalog, I had to get them and try them out. This was my first creation using these cups I thought that I would make a card with it rather than a favor which I've been seeing alot of in the cyber stamp world. What I really love about these cups not only are they cute but they don't take alot to fill which is great especially if your giving it to little ones. I filled my treat cup with Reese's Pieces {mmmm... maybe I will have to eat what's left in the bag! yummy} Drop me a comment and let me know what you think!!

Here's the Recipe:

Paper: Black, Perfect Plum, Whisper White & Cast A Spell

Stamp Set: Sweet Centers (mini Catalog)

Ink: Old Olive

Accessories: Sweet Treat Cups, 1 3/8" Circle punch, 5/8" Grosgrain black ribbon

Good Morning All, I hope that everyone is enjoying their weekend. The weather here in California has been a little on the hot side. I'm definitely ready for cooler weather. Today's post was a a copy from my cousin Niki you can find her card HERE.
I did however change the card just a bit as far as color and turning it into a scallop square. I liked the fact that her card was very simple and cute. So be sure to stop by her blog. Thanks Niki for helping me out with yet another birthday card.

Here's the Recipe:

Paper: Whisper White

Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay {marvelous markers}

Stamp Set: Everything Nice

Accessories: Scallop Square Die Cut, Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon

Yes, that's correct another birthday card! This card was made for one of my little sisters who recently turned 11! I just think these little bots are so darn cute, but I wanted to change up my bot and make her a girly one so I hope that I achieved that. I tried to take a picture of my bots belly to show that I popped it up but the picture didn't show it very well. TIP: Dimensionals do not adhere well to watercolor paper so try using pop up glue dots. Drop me a comment and let me know what you think!

Here is the recipe for this card:

Paper: Melon Mambo {love it}, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Water Color Paper and Razzleberry Lemonade DSP

Ink: Dusty Durango, Melon Mambo and Black Stazon

Stamp Sets: Lot of Bots & Look Who's Turning

Accessories: Scallop Square Die, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon and Pop Up glue dots

First off I have to say I absolutely love the "Branch Out" stamp set! It is one of the easiest 2~step stamp set that I own. I also love how you can change the tree for all the seasons and it still looks so cute as well as using it for so many different occasions. Today's card as you can see from the title is a card that I made for my dad. If you are anything like me then you know how difficult it is to make a masculine card. I just seem to struggle when making them, but I like to think that I am getting a little better at it. I always ask my hubby for his opinion, to see if the end result is masculine enough, I figure he would know best plus I think deep down he wants to be stamper! {teehee}

Card Recipe:
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Autumn Meadows DSP{holiday mini pg.13}

Inks: Chocolate Chip, Taken with Teal, Really Rust and More Mustard

Stamp Set: Branch Out and On Your Birthday

Accessories: Top Note Die, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Chocolate Chip 5/8 grosgrain ribbon and Jumbo Eyelet Brad

Thanks for stopping by!

I wanted to just update my status from my last post. My Internet issues have still not been resolved. I am sad to say that I have had to cancel my relationship with AT&T and start a new one with Comcast. I am hoping that I can get back to posting again on Tuesday, that is if all goes well... let's cross our fingers. Thank you so much for baring with me during this down time. Let me say what ever did we do before we had the technology of computers because I am going completely insane without mine. Thanks again and I hope to be posting again soon.

So today I came over to my father in laws house to post. It's difficult to come here on a regular basis with my little one being that he likes to get into everything right now, but I wanted to make sure that I updated my readers and followers of my absence. I thought that once my Internet and phone service was transferred to my new home that I would be back in full swing posting on a regular basis, but much to my frustration I have not been able to, I've been having alot of problems with my Internet connection since I have moved. My service is with AT&T and much to my dissatisfaction they are taking there sweet merry time to resolve my Internet connection problems. So I apologize for not having anything new for sometime now. Please bare with me during this time and as soon as I have my Internet connection again I will be back with my most recent projects. Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope to return with posts very soon.
