It's your birthday....

Actually it's Artful INKables second birthday and it's all about celebrating.  It's also my very first post as a member of their design team and I can not be any more excited.  If you have never seen AI's stamps, I HIGHLY recommend you buy at least one set (I know there are some Twilight fans out there, well Kristin has two sets based on the Twilight Series) and try them WILL NOT be disappointed!  The stamps come in an awesome slim case for easy store (a huge benefit for me), already mounted on rubber (just cut away) and when you stamp, the images are always clean and clear!!  What more can you ask for??  (If you're thinking, low prices well guess what you can get most, if not all stamps for under $20!!!)

This weeks Think Ink challenge was to make a creation with a birthday theme.  I used one of the cakes from Birthday Best.  I loved the look of this cake and all I can think of while coloring it in was that it looked like something Buddy from Carlo's Bakery would I went elegant (just like Buddy).  What do you think?

I won!!

I can't believe I almost forgot to tell you all.  Last week Piggy Tales was having a comment contest on their blog where the winner can win a $100 gift certificate to their store. Since I LOVE their papers I figured I give a shot.....well this morning I work up to find out that I WON!!!!  Now what a perfect way to start out the day.  I just love the quality of their papers and now I get to go on this awesome shopping spree!

Now to put this perspective...that is 125 sheets of paper!!  who wouldn't be excited :)

All right, now I'm off to bed but make sure you all come back tomorrow it's my first post for Artful INKables and I have a very cool card :)

Oldie But Goodie

Thursday's mark "Oldie but Goodie" day at Bugaboo.  Now none of Jodie's images are really "old" but there are some out there that need some more love since all of the great images she keeps releasing each week.  This one is Skelekinz baby, isn't she a doll.  I've had her colored in for so long waiting for just the right time and when I saw the Crafty Ho's Challenge this week, I knew she was going to be used.

This week the challenge is Black and Pink, what do you think??? 

Make sure you come back tomorrow cause it will be my first post with Artful Inkables!  In the meantime hop on over to the blog and take part in this week's challenge!

Just Cute Bears challenge

I found this challenge blog the other day and thought it would be fun to try it out.  The name of it is Just Cute Bears.  This week's challenge is to use all white and of course a bear :)  I pulled out this image of Jesse Bear from Bugaboo Stamps.  I've had him colored in for a while now but just couldn't find the right card to put him on but I LOVE how this turned out!

Lindsay's Stamp Stuff

 Happy Monday!

This week Lindsay challenged the team to make something with envelopes.  At first I really didn't know what I was going to do but then came up with this idea.  I probably should've attached each of them together as well as to the front and back of the chipboard but I'll definitely remember that for next time.

This cute little "case" can hold gift cards, little 3x3 cards w/envelopes, etc.  The image I used for this one was from Bird Branches and can be found here.

Make sure you check out what the other design team has created.

A quick post

I'm getting ready for bed so I thought I'd post this real quick.  Last night I went to a friend's Stampin Up! party and we made these three projects.  I can't even remember the last time I've gone to one of these but I can tell you something, I am LOVIN' the unmounted stamps and cases....I may be in trouble LOL

(ignore the baby monitor in the background LOL)
