HM in a teacup

I did this card for the House Mouse Monday Challenge a while back, but I forgot to submit it. Duh! Do you love House Mouse? If so, you need to check out that site. Lots of inspiration, challenges and blog candy. Yahoo!
I colored this cutie patootie image with my Copics. I used the Morrocan Screen cuttlebug embossing folder for the background. The sentiment is from Stampabilities.
I used blue and lavender gems around the inner scalloped circle. Another quick card. Love those quick cards!
See you tomorrow!

Cupcake Love

Here's a quick and simple card for Valentine's Day.
I used the big cupcake called "frosting only" and stamped it on two different types of cardstock and simply paper-pieced it. Cuttlebug swiss dots background. "Much Love" stamp is from Michael's dollar bin.
I love pink and black together. What is your favorite color combo for Valentine's Day?

No pantyhose!

These two stamps crack me up. If I have to wear pantyhose, I'm not going. haha! This woman looks like how I feel sometimes. Don't you just want to SCREAM sometimes????
This card is made from another of Kerry's sketches. She is the master of sketches and I appreciate all she does. Yes, Kerry, I do! This was a super simple sketch. Stamp the same image three times. Mount on a strip of cardstock. Stamp your sentiment and then mount on cardstock (or not). I chose to mount. Duh.
I have no idea what occasion I'd use this card for, but it's kind of fun. I'll put it in the bin of cards for sale at work.
Thanks for coming by today. See you tomorrow!


I've been getting a lot of spam comments lately. Some not so nice. Sorry about the word verification thingy. I know it's a pain.

Some dancing ladies

Well, I'm back. I've been away from papercrafts for awhile because I've been onto another project or two. I've learned to knit and it is all-consuming right now. I love knitting. The projects on my needles right now are 1) sock, 2) handwarmers, 3) a cap and 4) a scarf. What can I say? I like to start projects! I'll be posting my knitting projects once they're done. On to cardmaking... I've had these three images colored for ages. I do that a lot: color images. I store them in the same folder as I store all my uncolored stamped images and when I want or need to make a card, I reach in there and pull out something appropriate. Tonight, I wanted to do something colorful, so I took out these ladies. They are from a special edition kit by Odd Bird Planet. The stamps are kind of like paper dolls. You choose a head then a skirt, then some boots. It's really fun. I colored these images with my Copic pens. Please don't ask me what colors I used. :) The yellow area was stamped using a big background stamp by Odd Bird Planet. I used a sketch drawn by Kerry. Once you look at her awesome cards, scroll down to the bottom of her blog and see her sketchpad. There are some very cool sketches in there. Just what you need for a little inspiration! That's what I do when I can't make a card - I get a sketch! Well, thanks for stopping by today. I'll have another post tomorrow and the next day and the day after that and the day after that for quite awhile. I've been busy. See you tomorrow!
