Egg-stra Special

Good morning. Today is my day to post over on the Markerpop blog. At the end of the month we get a "Freebie" Day and can post about ourselves or a crafty project. Whatever we want. I normally bore everybody with some photos from one of my travels but decided to not do that this week! So Instead I am sharing a card I made using my one of mhy fav Stamping Bella Uptown Girl images.

It's no secret, I totally have a thing for the Uptown Girls. I would have every one of them if my pocket book would allow!! Each release I get all excited....they are so cute!

I used copics to color, the paper is from Simple Stories (fabulous).  The tab die is MFT as is the ribbon and twine. The cardstock is Bazzill cardshoppe.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful Easter!

{TSG} New Release - Lucky Duck

If it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck…well, it’s probably a Lucky Duck!! Ok, that was corny, but this SUPER cute set by Torico will make you squee with delight…could it get any cuter? Lots of ducks, and stamps to build the perfect scene, it’s so versatile.
Lucky Duck is a 4x8 set that includes a total of 24 stamps and will sell for $18.00.
While brainstorming the sentiments for Lucky Duck, as always, we took a turn for the dark side…..what else can I say besides this set is ducking awesome.
Hooked on Quack is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 7 stamps and will sell for $9.00.

I am all about those sassy sentiments so of course I had to incorporate one of them into my card. I thought the sentiment went perfectly with these 2 ducks faces! That adorable sitting duck looks so annoyed by the others singing! It reminds me of my husband and I. He swears that I sing/speak all the time! LOL  He is right though, I do tend to do that OCCASIONALLY!  Ha!

This past weekend I had the pleasure of hooking up with some amazingly talented stampers.  I had anxiety when It came to creating anything....seriously. I don't know if it had to do with being around all that talent or just not being in my little crafty room with all of my things. lol  I did manage to get a couple of things completed an this was one of them. I love how it came out.

This is from the Down on the Farm set. I LOVE this set, and you will to! The sentiments are so sweet too.

I used some paper from 2 differen't paper pads. I had to improvise because I wasn't at home and didn't drag everything with me.  The paper is from MME and Farmhouse. The scallopped border is an MFT die, the lacey oval is also MFT.

This was my first attempt at making clouds using my copics. Normally I just sponge on some color using a cloud template. I do like how they came out.

All the Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests listed below have lots of super sweet designs to show you, so be sure to hop over to each of them! And while you're there, be sure to leave a comment because we are giving away one of EACH of the new sets!!!

SOG - Watering Can

Good morning!! It's humpday for most  but today is my Friday!! So excited!  I am taking off for a couple of days and lucky me I get to spend it with some AMAZING ladies. Some of which, you probably stalk their blogs like I do!!
Today we are sharing another of the latest digi releases from Some Odd Girl. This one is Watering Can Tia.

Tia is colored with Copic markers.  The paper is from my favorite Tangerine by MME paper pad. The day I was making up a bunch of cards I think I grabbed it most of the time!  I didn't add a sentiment as I'm not sure just yet what I will use this for.

Be sure to come by the SOG Blog to see the rest of the release and all the DT's fabulous creations!!!

Happy SOG

Well, hello! I hope you weekend was great! Mine went by way to fast. More birthday parties and then I volunteered at a concession stand for a METS Springtraining game. The proceeds were going to the Honor Flight.  What a cool program. If you have never heard of it and you know somebody that is a WWII Vet, you should look into it!  You can find information on their website - They fly them and a chaparone up to Washington, DC for the day and it's a red carpet event for those guys. They have doctors and nurses that go along as well just in case anything happens. I helped with sending them off last year and the entire thing was pretty exciting.

They loaded up on the bus that takes them to the airport around 4 a.m. and they had people in cars and bikers follow them the entire way.  There were people all along the roadways waving flags. It was a touching event and I was more than happy to volunteer some time to raise money for them this weekend.

On to my card.  We are sharing the latest digi release from Some Odd Girl this week.  Today's card is featuring Happy Gwen.

I used my favorite Tangerine papers by My Minds Eye. I actually pulled out some OLD prima flowers, which I rarely use anymore. I love this card though, the colors make me happy and excited about spring and summer coming up!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thinking of You.....

Good morning!! It's Friday!! Are you doing the happy dance? I am!! I love my weekends, although it's another busy one. I have Bday party tonight for my brother.  Tomorrow I will be volunteering at at a Mets Spring Training Game all day. Hopefully I will find a little bit of time for some crafting as I have a couple deadlines coming up!! 

It's the first of the month and that means there is a new challenge on the Some Odd Girl blog!  We have a sketch for you too...

I used Sweet Thinkin' Mae.  Funny thing, I colored her all up, put my card together then went online to do my blog post. I go into the SOG store to grab her link and noticed a VERY similiar color pattern!!  It was NOT intentionally! LOL  Just a total coincidence!  I have a stamper friend and that happens to us ALL the time. It's kinda funny. I will post something and she will text me with a card she did but hadn't posted yet that is almost identical. Or vice versa. Crazy!

By the way, don't forget there is still 2 days to get in your application to join the SOG DT!
