Happy Friday everyone! Today starts another challenge over at Sketches by Carly. Below I have used the sketch. Do you recognize the image I choose to use? If not, you need to hop on over to Carly's Cuties!!! This summer Carly has add girls to her stamp sets. Through the month of September they are offering a free matching digi paper to go with these fun sets. These little young ladies are perfect for the preteen. This little cutie is called Birthday Allison. I paper pieced her shirt and balloons.

Ever feel this way on your birthday? Probably from eating cake or pie and ice cream not cheese. This is the Quirky Mouse from Doodle Pantry. I added his birthday hat, balloon, and sentiment from the Birthday Accessories set. Looks like this little fella had a great birthday! It makes me smile.

The Ants at Doodle Pantry are at it again. This set has them making a gingerbread cookie - and one is helping himself to a bite. The Doodle Pantry stamps are always so much fun and this is that too. The set is called Gingerbread Ants.
I'm so excited today to announce that I have joined the Try Stampin' On Tuesday Design Team! WooHoo! I always enjoy their sketches and was excited to be asked to join them. The card I have below is using the sketch for this week. I hope you will come on over and join in the fun and play along with us!

This afternoon I made this treat box for Halloween. This adorable little bear in his Halloween costume was an image I won from Robyn's Fetish. This cutie is titled "Bearly A Pumpkin". The die I used to make this treat box is from Stampin' Up. This will be a cute little gift to give to my granddaughter in her Halloween bag.
Below is a side view of the box.
I don't like to make sympathy cards at all, but who does. I need one right now for a cousin who's boyfriend was killed in a car accident. I used the Christian Sympathy digital stamp set just released this month from Clear Dollar Stamps. The butterflies are also from Clear Dollar Stamps. That is an acrylic set called Beautiful Butterflies it is an old set.

I'm gonna admit to officially being out of control of my own crafting. I have to tell you this card started out as a clean and simple card. I just can't stop myself. Junky is officially my style - I admit it. I used a fabric flower that I made months ago for a swap. It is made with denim and tulle with a pearl and ribbon center. I found the tutorial on you tube. The sentiment is the one that I just received from Crackerbox Rubber Stamps as a prize and it went perfectly with the fabric flower.

Hehe! Don't you just giggle at Bugaboo Stamps. I made this card for my mom and dad. Their anniversary is Monday. They will be married 46 years. High School Sweethearts. Awww! I just got this stamp and sentiment from Bugaboo so I could make this special card for them. The ribbon is velvet - gotta dress up this couple. =) They will get a kick out of it.
I haven't been able to squeeze any creative time this week so I really enjoyed my time this afternoon. Isn't it funny how you long to get crafting! =) This beautiful friends sentiment is from Crackerbox Palace Rubber Stamps. I won the stamp! Yeah!! The stamp is called Friends Like Flowers. Hop on over to the Crackerbox blog. All you need to do is comment and they pick a random person to win one of their stamps. The layout is from the group Stampin' Friends that I am taking classes right now and this is a sketch challenge they are hosting.

It's a fun day for me. I was chosen as the guest designer over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday. Yeah! This is our sketch for this weeks challenge. My stamp is from Stampin' Up from the Countryside set. I am a huge apple lover - I think it is the red I love.

Are you ready for a fun blog hop? For the month of August our theme for the Clear Dollar Stamps hop is Sentiments only - no images. Have you come from the wonderful blog of Jen? If so, then you are in the right place. If not, you will want to start over at the Clearly iStamp blog. You won't want to miss out on any of these wonderful ideas! To make my card I used the new digital set just released from Clear Dollar Stamps called Birthday Celebration. I made a shaker box with gold glitter inside to match the glitter and sparkle on my paper (which is hard to see in the picture). Inside the box says "make a wish" and inside the easel card says "Happy Birthday may all your wishes come true". I thought that was perfect for a fun birthday easel card.

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday. Today at Send A Smile 4 Kids we are starting a new challenge. This challenge is "anything for kids". That opens things wide. Our sponsors this challenge are Robyn's Fetish and Saturated Canary. I used an image from Saturated Canary. A back to school boy. I thought he was so cute that look like "really school time already".

Today starts a new sketch over at Sketches by Carly. This is sketch #63. I have used the sketch below for my card. Make sure you read the information on the sketch blog because you don't have to add the flowers if it doesn't work with your card. We are being sponsor by Sweet 'n' Sassy this challenge. My image is from them. This is a darling little mouse, maybe because he is flat on the paper and not running around. =)

Hope your day is going wonderful. We have cooled down a little so the weather is wonderful here! Today my card is made using the digital stamp set called Oranges and Cherries from Doodle Pantry. The paper is all from the Authentique Gathering stack. This card made me hungry for an orange. =)

You are not too late to join but hurry! This project is for one of the challenges and made using the project for today as inspiration.

This is the card from the side.
Yeah, it's digital release day at Clear Dollar Stamps! I always get excited about this day of the month! The first card I have to show you today uses a set called Back To School. I just loved this fat pencil. This is a fun set and lots you can do with it!

I'm not trying to wish summer away but with all the heat we have had this summer I am really going to enjoy fall. I love the smells of fall. This card reminds me of that so much. This is a digital set from Clear Dollar Stamps called Sweet and Spicy. I printed the image on the polka dot paper and cut out the cup. This would be a fun mug to drink hot apple cider from for fall.

The card I posted yesterday is also using one of Lisa's sets. Go on over and check her out. She is very whimsical. I have always loved her creativity in her cards and now her stamps are just the topping on the cake! I'm always excited to see what she comes up with next!

This isn't my style at all but I did have fun making this card. I have to tell you though those orange dots are calling for pearls to be placed in the center of them. I guess that's how my cards progress they call to me. =) I used several Stampin' Up items that I purchased a while back for this card. I used the stamp set Family Reunion for the sentiments. The flower pots and leaves are from the stamp Packed For Mom. I also used the Adorning Accents Edgelits and the embossing folder that goes with it. The flower buttons are also from Stampin' Up. How fun to use the stuff you have been holding on to.
