Baby shower card

Now this isn't my typical idea of a baby shower card but I love how it turned out.

I was asked to make a card for a friend at work who had to go to a baby shower at the end of the month, so originally I planned on using a little bear for it. After showing her an image she saw my Ebony card and wanted something like that.

Well, I have never really done much altering but all of a sudden it clicked (don't you just love when that happens LOL). Cupie baby from Bugaboo Stamps was just the perfect candidate for this project, he got a shirt and boots added to him along with the skull on his t-shirt (apparently the mom loves the skull and bones theme). From there the sentiment came along (with a little help from Jennifer Woodbury....thanks girl!!).

So here is the final card, what do you think?

Valentine's card for my Hubby

I was blurfing today and found a link to Victoria Case's art design website and had to go check it out since I am a huge fan of her stamps (wish I had more and more time to play with them :(). Anyway, as I was checking out her her various stamps and digital stamps I came across her Pinup section and knew instantly I wanted to get one to create a Valentine's Day card for Brian. I got "XOXO pin-up" and made the card tonight. I still haven't written anything inside but I have to do some thinking on that.

These are pictures of the outside and inside of the card. (sorry for the darkness of the second pic, I was trying to get it done before Hubby came into the room)

New Release Day!

Today is Bugaboo Stamps new release day and Jodie has once again out-done herself. This is just one of the great images that is being released today. I'm sure you know who this guy is :) Mr. Sock Monkey can be found here.

For this image, I created a tag. I really didn't know what I was going to do with him but really wanted to use him for this week's post.

Hello Chickadee

Chickadee's have to be my favorite bird out there. I just think they are the cutest little things around :) So when I saw this image from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, I had to have it. The image is called Chickadee and can be found here. Now this isn't something I would typically gravitate towards as I always seem to not know what to do with it but I think the card came out pretty good. I used this week's sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches as well for this card.

Also February is customer appreciation month at MyGrafico, the more you have spent in the past the more you will save this month. See this page for details:

A little fantasy

can go a long way. Once I saw this stamp set from Lindsay, I knew I had to use it. The image is called Carousel and can be found here. I also used this week's sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches for the layout. I didn't want to over-shadow the image so I went very simple on the whole card. I really liked how it turned out and made another card somewhat similar (see my next post).
