Be a Little Shellfish.....

Hello my Crafty Friends!!!!

So trying to stay on track to make Birthday cards
I really need for my stash I pulled out this oh so cute
Lawn Fawn stamp called Year Six. 
Is this not sooo stinking cute?!?!?! I knew I had to have
this set when previews started a month or so back. I 
love all underwater theme stamps and thought
it would be cute to make a masculine Birthday card with it.
I turned this into a Fun shaker card too!!!




I stamped part of the birthday greeting onto blue vellum paper
and the other half of the greeting is on the sand and it reads
(Be a little Shellfish).

Leela Merbean......

 Hello my Crafty Friends!!!

I finished up making this mermaid card for my
friend's up coming birthday this week. This is a 
digital stamp by The Greeting Farm called
Leela Merbean.  She is my Favorite merbean
of the bunch!! I colored her up with my Copics and 
I used lots of clear Wink of Stella glitter pen all
over her fins and crown but the picture does it no 
justice on showing all that sparkly shine!!!


I started out with the intentions of making
this into a shaker card but I took a different route
instead.  I Love the way it turned out and I hope my 
friend does too!!  I have seen other people make
pull out tags on their cards and tried my hand at 
that.  I saw this random saying online and wrote
it down and computer generated it and cut it
out with my Tags A Lot die by Mama Elephant.

Happy Mother's Day.....

Thank God it's FRIDAY!!!!!!!

I LOVE Friday's and I especially 
Love 4 O'clock on a Friday!!! Because
that's when my 40 hr work week ends and I
can go have some fun.  I need to stop by Hobby
Lobby after work today as I have been working on 
these Mother's Day cards and I have run out of Vellum!!!!
I am actually excited that I am getting a jump start on 
the next upcoming holiday, Mother's Day!!!!  Now with no
holidays this month I can maybe get a little a head on some
Birthday card making too!  I won't hold my breath tho.....

for April last week and decided to play around with the stamp
set some.  I know Mother's Day is coming up so thought I 
would get a jump on it and make something for it.  This is what I
came up with:


I softened the look by placing a die cut piece of vellum
over the front of my main panel.  Most of my Stampin' Up
stamp pads seem to be no good lately so I resorted to using
my Tim Holtz distress inks to ink this stamp set up.  I like
the end result and I hope the mom's I send these out to do too!!

I am entering my card into 5 challenges:

Simon Says Stamp ~ Anything Goes
Simply Papercraft ~ #26  Anything Goes

Let's Party......

Hello............

Well yesterday was my dad's Birthday.
I wanted to make him a fun Birthday card 
using my FAVE stamp set 
I still have not bought the dies to make
this a little easier cutting out....someday. Lol
I did some water coloring on the background
using my distress inks on Tim Holtz water 
color paper.  I had just received my Simon
Says Stamp April card kit and it came with the 
black embossing powder that I used on my 
sentiment. Looks pretty cool in person.
I bought that Memory Box cloud die a few months
ago and I don't think I have ever used it.
I thought it made a Great area to put
the sentiment on.

turning 69 years old!! The picture
was taken 2 days before his Birthday.
