Girls Night is Just Rite

Well, the new Just Rite stamp sets have started arriving at I just received my new Girl Time set last week. These stamps are awesome for making cards or invitations for all your fabulous girlfriends. I couldn't wait to play with them!For this card, I stared with the doily card from the Cricut Wild Card cartridge. I then cut a circle from George out of patterned paper to layer over the card. The sentiment is from Just Rite. It is more hot pink in person. ( I know it looks a little red in the picture) After I stamped it, I cut it out with a circle nestabilitie and then matted it with a scalloped circle nestie out of pink cardstock. To glam up this girls night out card, I topped it with some ribbon and petaloo flowers. Now, I just need to set up a girls night out so my card won't go to waste!

So Simple, So Tweet!

Well, it's springtime even though the past couple of days have felt a lot like summer. The third challenge for Scrappy Frogs was to create a floral/spring themed project for a chance to win some really springy prizes! Here is my card for the challenge.

I just got this set of the bird nestabilities and I had to play with them. I cut the bird out of the turquoise paper and then matted it on the green floral paper. I stamped the sentiment- so tweet on yellow, cut it out with a circle nestie, and then matted it with a scalloped circle. Then I added a little sticker and some ribbon. This is the easiest, quickest card I've made in a while. So, hop on over to and play along with us!

challenge with a cherry on top!

It is my turn to host the challenge on the scent my cards blog and I have picked my scent - cherry! Is there anything sweeter than cherries?

So, hop on over to the scent my cards blog (it's in my blog list if the link above doesn't work) and show us what you come up with! I used Cherry Tilda again. This stamp can be used so many different ways and in so many different color combinations. I also reworked the just magnolia sketch a little for this card. I really like it the way it turned out, pink and green are 2 of my favorite colors together.

New Magnolia Card

I have absolutely fallen in love with Magnolia stamps. They are so adorable. I just discovered a new challenge blog their first challenge was a sketch challenge.
This one was a lot of fun. I used sweetheart Tilda and colored her with copics, that paper is from Basic Grey and i accented it with some prima flowers.

A couple more cards

I finally had a chance to catch up on some cards for my cuttlebug card exchange group. This is a yahoo group where we have a different mingle closing each week. You make one card, you are assigned a partner to send your card to, and your partner will send a card to you. It's a lot of fun and easy! This first card was made for the pastels only swap. I used one of my new gorguss girls stamps from sugar nellie and colored her with copics. The background paper is from Close to My Heart. The sentiment Hey Chick is from Cornish Heritage Farms.
This second card is for our April sketch challenge. I got some new Magnolia stamps from magnolia-licious ( and I just had to play with them. This one is cherry tilda you can't really see in the photo but she has little cherries on her dress. Once again I colored her with copics. The cardstock is core'dinations and the blue paper is from Close to My Heart. The cherries on her dress were accented with the copic glitter pens even though it's hard to see in the picture. The cherry ribbon I found in the $1 section at Michaels and I just had to have it.

Another Scrappy Frog Challenge

Ok, I thought this Scrappy Frog's challenge was going to be hard.  The only instruction was to made a project  inspired by the Making Memories Slice.  Well, I don't have one so I couldn't actually use one to make the project.  I thought I would just use the colors of the slice itself.  It's a pretty turquoise color with a little black and green on it.  I can work with that I thought, so I colored one of the new stamps I got from FunkyKits/Sugar Nellies with a few of my turquoise, green, and black copic markers.  I cut it into a square, rounded the corners and dabbed on some distress ink.  Then I remembered that I do have some Making Memories 
ournaling notebooks that I could use to mat the stamped image, but what paper do I have to go with it?  Well, as luck would have it, I had an entire noteworthy kit still unopened (can you believe I bought some paper and hadn't used it yet?) that matched the journaling notebook perfectly, so above is what I came up with.  All the products used except for the stamped images and the inks are from Making Memories.  If you would like to win a slice apron, hop on over to and enter your creation.  

My Sugar Sweet Paper Treat

Ok, here is my card for the first Sugar Sweet Paper Treats challenge.  Of course I chose a cupcake for the something sweet.  They're everywhere right now aren't they?  When I was looking for paper, I thought the Basic Grey Two Scoops would be perfect for something sweet and pink.  In order to fit everything on the card I decided to make my card 6 x 6. This way I 
could make the elements a little larger.  The cupcake was cut from the Home Decor cartridge.  The sentiment 2 sweet was cut from Hello Kitty font.  I also included the labels 1 nestie and some eyelet trim I picked up in the fabric department a while ago.  I hope my card isn't the dud of the group.  I really like how it turned out and I think it does look sweet.

Sugar Sweet Paper Treats

I was so thrilled when Cheryl asked me to be a part of the design team at Sugar Sweet Paper Treats. Our first challenge is due April 15th. I actually already have my project completed, I just don't have a picture of it yet. I know, it's amazing I have something done early. We had to make a project with something sweet on the project, the word sweet, and the primary color had to be pink. Go and check out the amazing projects some of the design team has already turned in. It is awesome! I'm getting nervous about posting my card now.
