Four Leaf Clover

I love Changito. I love the saying on this card! The inside says "hard to find and lucky to have!" .. So sweet! I like that it is not necessarily a St Patty's day card, since I hardly ever send any St Patty's cards out.. Enjoy!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Ok, so it's not a card, but it should be on a card!!!! I found this at work and had to share.. This article was found HERE.

Over The Rainbow Challenge

Here is another challenge card from Nichole Heady's blog. The Challenge was to use 4 colors similar to the ones she displayed on her blog

From SU I used Wasabi, Caribbean Blue, Saffron CS. Also used are the same color inks including Ruby Red. The background was cuttlebug'd with swiss dots. I used Guava for the heart punch in the middle. The sentiment was stamped using Baja Breeze and a stamp cut out of the set So Many Saying from SU... These were some tough colors to use!

Bitty Dot Sketch Challenge

Here's the card I made for this challenge. I have so much decorative paper and I never use it all... The DP is from 3 bugs in a rug. The stamp is from the set Friendship Blooms. The border dots are from Paper Trey's Faux Ribbon set. From SU I used Pretty in Pink and Choc Chip CS...

Monkey Love

I love this monkey from Whipper Snapper! I dug out my cuttlebug folders and found this vine-like one. I don't know the name!! Anyway, I thought it turned out cute. The ribbon is from May ARts. It is so pretty in person. It is variegated and has gold strands throughout.
Also used are SU CS--Wasabi, Celery, Cocoa, White. Bazzill CS, LI brads, Cuttlebug Folder, and corner rounder. I suppose you could use it for V-day, but that was not my intention! Hope you like!

I put together this card yesterday for my Sister-in-law's birthday. This one is really different from anything I normally make, but I thought it was cute! I love this cupcake set from Stampendous. It was a limited edition set I believe. You can put whatever face you want on it and this one fit perfectly for my SIL. I think the only thing from Stampin Up on this card is the CS (Elegant Eggplant), and orange ink. Other supplies I used include: Lasting Impressions paper, Sizzix candle dies, prismacolor pencils, stickles, Cricut Embossing Folders, White gel pen...
