Happy Name Day, Dimitrios!

Today is St. Dimitrios' Name Day - so, to all the Dimitrioses out there, Happy Name Day! This shout out is especially for my wonderful husband :) Happy Name Day - love you!

I made a couple cards because I couldn't decide which Fluffles image to use and which Taylored Expressions sketch design to use. The only thing I did know was that I wanted to use the Manchester DSP - it's very masculine in colors and they are surprisingly current colors even though the DSP is retired.

I colored the Fluffles images using the colors from the DSP: Baja Breeze, Always Artichoke, and Crumb Cake. I added a couple more colors for the flowers. I also used some buttons, brads, and some punches as well. I had to accessorize, but was careful not to use my beloved ribbons ;)

Anyway, thanks for looking and have a great day too!

Look what my sister gave me! Isn't this the cutest little Halloween treat box? She gave it to me last weekend and I just had to post. I love the glittery mask on this kitty and all with punches - so purrrfect!

For more info. on this adorable little box, hop on over to her blog here. TFL!

Hoppy Birthday

I love this little image - it makes me hoppy :) When I did the last craft show, I had some ladies ask for frog and turtle images. I found this Penny Black image and it was so cute, I had to get it. I used the Diva Coffee Break Designs color challenge #196 and Stampin Royalty sketch challenge to make this card. I am really liking the new SU! In Colors (pear pizzazz and concord crush). Since I always need birthday cards, I decided to make this one a birthday. I used SU! stamps Burst Into Bloom and Party Punch for background and sentiment. I also added a couple pearls to the cut out flowers.

Thanks for looking and have a hoppy day!

Not done, but almost!

I started this card for the Mojo Monday (#149) sketch and the colourQ (#43) challenges, but somehow never quite finished it! But, I like it this way and will add a sentiment when I find the right person and occassion to use it :)

I have a hard time with the round cards, so I tend to stick to the square and rectangular cards. I love the ribbon accents and I didn't make a bow for once!

I love the pearl accents that everyone is using now. It just adds the right touch to so many things!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Sweet Sketch

Good morning! I had made some cards a while ago, but my computer was being updated and you know how it goes ;)

I made this card using the Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC87) found on this blog. I love the sketch and can't wait to make more cards with it. I didn't even stamp on this one....love DSP! I used my still favorite Cottage Wall while I wait for new inventory :)

Have a great day and week! Thanks for looking.
