More Pink Birthdays

I don’t know why I keep making so many birthday cards… Probably because I have much bright pink paper out right now and it always makes me think Birthday…


This card is sort of a redo of my AHSC card from earlier this week. I love this sketch as a square card more then I like my rectangle version.


Notice the little heart type flowers in the foil circle background there remember those they’ll be important later.



Look I found a stamp that kind of matched so I used it to decorate the envelope and the inside of the card!


And the black flap of the envelope.

Happy Halloween and Using an old stamp set

I haven’t used this stamp set in forever! I was excited to pull it out again! It’s just so cute!


I haven’t used my Copic markers in forever either seeing as I’ve been going through a bit of a colored pencil phase and decided to break out the markers again.


Oh look more ink smudges… I really need to find my sand eraser…

Christmas Season Preview

I wasn’t planning on doing a Christmas project yet and having one more week of fall and Halloween projects but this Christmas one snuck in to just give you a preview.


A couple of things about this one before I share the separate card and envelope pictures  This card is actually a little different. It’s actually 4 X 5.5 but I actually really like the way it looks. Also a little Scan N Cut note. I used the pre-loaded holly image to make the little holly berries… I’m not really a fan… I like the Cricut better for these preloaded image type things. There’s no “Shadow” feature for the scan n cut so I couldn’t just match up the pieces… I had to figure it out myself and I just am not a fan of how it came out.


And the back


and the envelope

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #183

Now that things have slowed down at work lets try getting back into this blogging thing.

It’s Monday and you know what that means! Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge time!!!

I actually struggled with this sketch a bit… So I hope you’ll join us this week so I can see what you come up with!


And now what I came up with.


Really cute and simple. I have another try at this card scheduled for later this week and I actually think that one came out a little better although my mom likes this one.

And the back.


I even made a matching envelope!

You’ll ignore the ink smudge right…. Just pretend it isn’t there….



I don’t even now where that smudge came from…  I have one of those sand erasers…. But it’s a little MIA at the moment…

And the back flap of the envelope.
