Black ink only

Today's quick card & post is a challenge from Sharon Johnson to make any kind if a card...but the only ink you can use is black. This is easy as long as you don't stamp an image you feel does not need coloring. If you go to her blog you can also get the link & keyword for SCS & see all the other beautiful cards.
The green paper is from SU & the pink & black is from PTI...I love this color combo! so bright & cheerful. The ribbon is from CKC last year. the thank you much circle is PTI & the large circle is from SU. The flower in the center is also SU.
That is all I have time for today as tomorrow is my DD's BD & we are going shopping! & then out for BD tonight. The weather is soooooo nice here today!! about 80 and a little overcast!!
hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!

coloring with glitter

I can not believe this weekend is almost over already!!! I do have to work tomorrow even though it is a holiday. I'm sure many of you have the day off!!
This card I made with Taylored expressions Friday cupcake sketch. For the Bella & her cupcake I colored the whole thing with my little glue pen & then glittered every bit of it. Anything glitter is always so hard to photograph...but I promise you!! it is really pretty in real life :) I love her little black party dress. All other paper is SU, and the Happy Birthday is Inkadinkado. The little diamond bling is from Michael's & all the glitter is from Martha Stewart.
Thanks for the visit!!

PTI contest

I'm sure many of you have been playing along with all the fun & games over at PTI!!! This is the first chance I am getting to actually participate. This challenge was to create a card with one of the color combos created by Design team member Dawn Mcvey. I chose this color combo from day 6. I used the new sympathy set add on for loss of a pet. Her combo looks much better as I used a green from SU....& now that I look at hers guess I should have added a touch of white..oh well this is it!! better get it posted & get back to my valentine ;)

Thanks for today's visit!!!~~~~~~~~~~~Gwen~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy Anniversary

Happy 51st Anniversary Mom & Dad!!!
I made this card for my parents anniversary. I love this DP but with such a large embossed image I really didn't think I could use it on a card...but I gave it a try....and I love the way it turned out!!!!! The inside is all pretty too! the stamp is an old one from the dollar bin at Michael's & the paper is from a big stack book by Me & my big ideas. The bling I got at my local SB store. Very quick & easy card!!!!!
Thanks for today's visit!!! See ya on the weekend!!!!

baby shower card

Well the baby shower was a huge success!!! I had to admit something to myself yesterday..I am NOT a good baker!!! Just because I took a few cake decorating classes does not mean I can actually BAKE a decent cake or cupcakes!!! The first batch of cupcakes I made ended up in the trash :( So had to start over with a second batch that turned out good enough to use at least!!! so that put me far far behind in getting a card done! So I quickly went though a bunch 0f old sketches I had & this is what I came up with....very quick & easy!!! Sorry I can not remember who's sketch it is to give credit but it was really an easy one for me!
Today I am working on a few last valentine cards so I can get them in the mail!! It is really cold & rainy here today so it's a perfect craft day!!!

Thanks for todays visit! Happy crafting!!!

It is made of rolled diapers & stickers, SB paper & ribbon. So fun! so easy!!! If you google diaper cakes there are lots of tutorials on how to make them. Well better run...still have a card, glass charms & 24 cupcakes to make & decorate all before this afternoon!!!
