A sketch and two cards

Good morning everyone.. :) In yesterdays post, I mentioned that I was cleaning up my Pinterest "Likes" board, and was either saving pins for later, or get inky right away with some of the creations that I had saved.. well I noticed that I had saved a few cards that have the same sketch, and decided to go with making those cards considering the sketch was "calling to me".. :) It is a simple sketch, with lots of possibilities, here is my first card-

 Another card that we will be making at my club this month..I used the sentiment Congratyoulations from the set Bravo, found in the main catalog.. perfect for this sketch,  as was this other tall image -

Case Creations

Hey Everyone.. I have a been busy in the sunshine, getting the yard cleaned up, as well as some spring cleaning too! While we are on the subject of cleaning, I decided to clean up my Pinterest "Likes" page also. I went through all the pins, put them on a board for later, or got to recreating what was pinned.. I had a few cards that I knew I wanted to Case.. So I decided that was going to be my launching point for this board clean up.. Here are my Cased Creations -

I cased myself for the card using the same layout and stamp set, just changed the colors and a few elements, and cased Inge Groot for the mini treat sack. Both of these creations are going to be made at this months club meeting.. I know the ladies will love them and it helps them get a card and gift packaging done for the upcoming Spring/Summer occasions.. :) OK, back to cleaning.. this time its my stamp desk.. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Hey Everyone! I have been busy with getting Easter cards made and sent this past week. This year is going by so fast, and my to do list keeps getting longer..On that subject, on my "to create" list was to make a pop up box card..A lot of them were floating around the inter webs a few months ago, and I simply never got around to it.. Well... I can now check this off my list. Whoop! I decided to make an extra special card for my Mom considering I was not going to be spending the holiday with her, and this kinda of card filled the bill. I followed the tutorial from Splitcoaststampers for the how to, and went to work.. 

Kinda of hard to get a good picture of it.. sorry.. I used a retired set called Everybunny.. one of my faves, and most of the images had yet to see ink, so it was about time. here is a closer view - 

I used my Blendabilities and Copics to color the images.. it was super fun to create and I love how it all came together. I know my Mom will love it too! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Happy Easter Everybunny!

Hello DC

Hey Again Everyone! A few days ago I mentioned that I had been busy completing my Scrap Album from my recent trip to Washington D.C...and.... I said I would share.. So that is what I am doing today. :) if you have been following me for awhile, you know my issues with scrapping in general. Now don't get me wrong, I love to scrap. My problem is that I get lost is All there is to scrap at times.. ;) I was determined that this time I was not going to make this too hard on myself.. it was a 4 day trip.. how hard could that be? I decided to use the So you Project kit form the Occasions mini. The perfect size, and everything is there for me to complete the album in one sitting, OK maybe two.. Whoop! The project kit coordinates with a stamp set, also from the Occasions min, called So You.. Love it! Here is the front of my Album-

A big bonus with this kit, there are sample layouts right is the package.. with step by step instructions for those layouts.. So if you are new to scrapping, SU took care of all the guess work. Perfect for even the seasoned scrapper, with all that is included in the kit! Here are some of my favorite pages -
