What Does the Fox Say?

That is a very popular question lately and I think I've found the answer. I will reveal it at the end if the post.
I made a quick and easy Valentine's card using my Cricut, the Wild Card 2 cartridge, and some My Mind's Eye paper. I have to admit, that little fox is what sold me on this cartridge. 
I used some core'dinations cardstock for my base and sanded it to bring out the embossed design. I then cut the heart and the adorable little fix out of different patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye  6x6 pack. I finished the card off with some faux stitching and some googly eyes.
Now to answer everyone's question, what does the fox say?
Happy Heart Day of course, it's almost Valentine's Day!

Birthday Time

As soon as the new year starts, so do the birthdays in my family. I always try to start on them early so they're ready to go when I need them.  
I made this card with some masculine papers from My Mind's Eye. 
The little elephant is from Create a Critter 2.  He's holding a couple of balloons attached with some floss. I can never find sentiment stamps when I need them, but I think it's pretty obvious this one is for a birthday. 
Thank you for stopping by and looking at my card. Don't forget to stop by the store and see all the great stuff Kim has for you.

The 12 Days of Christmas

The Cutters Creek Design Team is hosting a 12 days of Christmas party. Every day for the first 12 days of December, one member of the design team will post a Christmas project. So, here is mine. I've had this stamp in my collection forever and not used it. I decided this was the time to break it out and get it inky.

The image I used is from House Mouse. They have so many cute images and they're fun to color. I colored these little guys with my Copic markers. I used Liquid Pearls to add some snowflakes. All the paper I used is from My Mind's Eye.
I hope you have enjoyed the projects so far and don't forget to check out the remaining ones.

It's Beginning to Look...

It's starting to look a little bit like Christmas. I'm ready to start shopping and put up my decorations. One great way to get in the Christmas spirit is to get started in your Christmas cards. I decided to challenge myself on my first one and deviate from the my usual bright and cheery Christmas colors. 
This paper pack from My Mind's Eye is soft and muted. I tried to match it with my copics as best as I could. I popped my image up from the burlap strip with some 3D adhesive and added a paper poinsettia to the corner. This card was quick and simple to put together. I didn't want to overwhelm myself on the first one.

Giving Thanks

This time of year we all think about what  thankful for. It's easy to be thankful for the big things like family, friends,  and our health, but sometimes we forget about the simple things that make us happy every day. When I found this sentiment stamp from House Mouse it made me think about how thankful I am for simple things like having the time to craft.

I think this image of Tilda playing in the leaves is perfect for this sentiment.  I colored her with copic markers and added some Flower Soft to make it look like she's sitting in a pile of leaves. I love how sweet she looks. I kept my papers from My Mind's Eye simple as well and didn't add any embellishments. 

Take some time this holiday season to remember the simple things in life that make you happy.

Trick or Treat

I've been spending a lot of time trying to get my scrapbook room organized and put everything in a place that makes sense. In doing that, I've become reacquainted with things I haven't used in a while or, even worse, forgot I had. I found this little Tilda holding a pumpkin and knew I wanted to color her. 
She's so cute and perfect for Halloween time. I colored her with copic markers to match the colors in my favorite My Mind's Eye paper. It's hard because the colors in the paper are so muted. I matted the image with a couple of rectangle nestabilities and then finished the card off with a Cutters Creek gardenia.

I guess it's time to put my Halloween images and paper up for another year. I've had a lot if fun playing with some old friends.

Think Pink.

October is breast cancer awareness month and you sure to see a lot of pink. We're honoring breast cancer with pink projects all month. I chose this cute image from La La Land Crafts that I've had forever and never inked up until now.
I colored Marci with my copic markers to match the colors in the Echo Park paper. The frame around the image is a nestabilitie and I sanded it to make the polka dots stand out more. I finished the card off with some silk flowers and a cutters creek gardenia. 

Remember to think pink this October and  protect yourself.
