PSA Essentials - Hello Kitty Winter card

I recently found this stamp company named PSA Essentials.  At first I wasn't sure about the stamps and whether or not I would like them but let me tell you, they are really cute and interchangable.  We got Abby three of the Hello Kitty sets for Christmas but I ended up giving her the winter set now so she can use it....well mommy had to play too :)

I made this really simple card because I'm sending it to my friend in Afghanistan as a "Hang in there" note, letting her know where all thinking and praying for her.

so until I get my hands on more variety of these stamps,  you'll be seeing a few Hello Kitty cards :)

Victorine Originals - Hoppy Birthday

For today's card I used this cute fat frog with a fly coming to greet him :)  I decided to make this card monochromatic and simple.  It's fun to make these every once in awhile LOL

Inky Impressions - Christmas Challenge

 For The Greeting Farm Hop please scroll down or go here
For the Shannon's Sentiment Hop please scroll down to next post.

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I am so excited to share with you my very first post as a design team member for Inky Impressions.  The team has had so much fun so far creating our cards that we can't wait to make more :)  Also starting today we will be starting up the bi-weekly challenges again over at the Inky Impressions Challenge blog as well as monthly challenges and mingles in the yahoo group. So make sure you come join in on all of the fun :)

Today's challlenge is to create a Christmas inspired project.  Using an Inky is not required but we would to see you use them if you own some ;)  The design team was given Rachel's Gingerbread Christmas to use on our cards today and this is what I cam up with

I had this idea for the window right after I colored the image in but it took me over a week to figure out how I was going to do it :)  I used a couple martha stewart punches to make the top of the window and the tree & wreaths.  Added the bows and "snow" to make it look more realistic and added a sentiment tag I found online for free.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it :)

The Greeting Farm's Hopping into the Holidays Blog Hop

Welcome to The Greeting Farms Hopping into the Holidays Blog Hop!!
I had so much fun last year with the Club Anya All Customer blog hop that I had to participate in the hop again this year!  There were so many great projects last year that I can't wait to see what everyone does this time around :)

For the hop, there are three categories in which our creations can be entered into and a winner will be selected amongst those.  They are:
"Let it Snow"  (use snow in creative ways on your card)
"Santa, Baby" (cute Santa-inspired cards)
"Holiday Treats" (incorporate some kind of treat/goodie theme into your cards!
For my card today I used Anya from the Xmas Sweeties set and the christmas papers that is also from The Greeting Farm.  My card is suitable for the "Santa Baby" category :)


Hope you like it. Now it's time to go back to the TGF blog and see who's next.

For my project today I used Kaylee which was a freebie at one time :)  I just love her and had to use her for the hop.  I colored her in with copics and used some papers that I got at Joann's in one of those paper stacks (which I have been dying to use!!)

Your next stop in the hop is Robin's blog. Thanks for hoppin by!
