Warm Birthday Thoughts

The weather here has been so cold this winter.  Snowy and cold.  Heck it's just been plain flippin freezing forever it seems.  Twenty degrees below the norm and not warming up for a couple more weeks they say.  Plus we've got more snow coming in a couple days.  Where oh where is Spring?!?!?!???  

I decided to think warm thoughts and put a touch of Spring into this birthday card by using an adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil. 

...oh, how I can't wait to wear my flip flops again...
Stay warm peeps!

3D-Cake Gift & Candy Box

I love this cute little cake box design by Snapdragon Snippets!  It has alot of potential and is fun and pretty easy to assemble. 

I've made this box before and kept it very simple, but this time I added some adorable pompom trim and fun springy balloons to give it a little extra pizzaz.  Someday I'm gonna make one and go crazy adding tons of bling!

My favorite part about the design is that there are two hidden compartments.  I'm using this as a gift box and I filled the bottom part with candies and tucked some birthday spending money tied with a ribbon into the top part.  It will be fun to see how long it takes the recipient to figure out how to open and find their gift, lol!

Love is the key

Dabbling a little bit more with my Distress markers and another of my sweet Penny Black images...

I wish I could remember the tips and tricks and techniques that my high school art teacher gave me for water coloring, but I'm just having fun winging it and so far I'm pretty happy with the results.  These markers are simple to work with and I absolutely LOVE the color palette.

Time to Celebrate

 This Hambo Stamps cool cat is ready for a birthday celebration -

but unfortunately my dear hubby is not.  Instead of celebrating like a cool cat he was tucked under the covers and sick as a dog on his birthday :(

Why do they compare cats with being cool and dogs with being sick anyway??  Hmm...I guess it's just one more reason I'm thankful I'm a cat person, lol!

Happy birthday babe and feel better soon!

Happy birthday to "ewe"

Oh Miss Diaaaaana... I had to make a quick card today and was inspired by all of your irresistible punny cards.  ;)

It was also a great chance to try out my new Distress Markers.  Not much coloring to do with the adorable Penny Black stamp so I could be comfortably timid while getting the hang of them.  Can I just say I think I LOVE them!?!  Maybe not as much as my Prismas (yet), but I think once I can find some bright white water color paper I will be well on my way.

You're a Hoot!

I'm back!  It's been a little while, eh?

Valentine's Day is a week away and guess what?  I'm ready early!  Look at what I've been busy making with my new Stampin' Up owl punch!!  Forty yummy valentines for my daughter to share with her friends, classmates, teachers, and bus driver.  There may even be a few feathered cuties stashed aside for a few special peeps/peepettes....   ;)

Did you ever ask an 8 year old to sign her name 40 times?  Try it sometime and see what expression she flashes in your direction!  LOL!!!
