 I tried to keep this card on the masculine side, how did I do?
I let  my cameo cut out the old goat and the tag.
Inside is the happy birthday image.
The little camera is a wood piece.

Crochet tools travel pouch

I made myself a travel pouch for my crochet tools.
I saw the pattern in an email and made it pretty quick.

I bought some fabric and a zipper and created the lining.
I don't have a sewing machine so I did it all by hand, not my favorite but I'm pretty happy with the end result.

Art by Barb progressive challenge

I was chosen to win 3 digi's from last month's challenge at Art by Barb on facebook,
I chose this mouse with heart grater, I had to make a card with him right away.


This is the image for this month.  I colored her with my pencils and added some clothes pin images.

I colored her with tights instead of her panties showing.

Beachy fun

I used Cool Cari for my card today.
I attempted a magic color slider card.  I'm not really sure I did it right, but I do like how it turned out so I'm going with it.

I love this seashell paper and will be so sad if they discontinue it.
I used a mask to cover her up and sponged the background using Tim Holtz inks.

Be sure to check out the new additions in the shop.
And don't forget our challenge!

Uchi's Design card

This is a new company I am showing you today. 
Emily had a book like this when she was a baby that we all loved looking at.  When I saw this company I got so excited!
Check out their site here after you take a peak at my project.


Here is a video of the card in action.

I was able to get 2 of the sets and a package of the acetate sheets with the grid on them.
This card is pretty simple I created 2 pull sections on each side of the card. 
I punched a hold in the acetate and tied some twine on each side to aid in the pulling.
As you move the grid, the owl looks like he's flapping his wings.


I'm adding this to the anything goes for Crafty Creations.

Get well soon

Today I'm sharing a card from Creative Kuts called an envelope card.
It's like a box card but looks like an open envelope, so cute!

 Isn't this owl adorable? I just love him.

12 months of Christmas link up




This month our theme is cute Christmas, my specialty!
I chose this adorable image to work with from our sponsor

These are the papers you have a chance to win if you link up.

Here is my card. I used a few sil files and turned them into digital image to go with my card.

 I used the santa paper to fill in the sack and her hat which I think is pretty cute.
I used my black gel pen to color her belt and buttons and the snowman's hat, nose and buttons.

Craftin Desert Divas cards

I'm sharing 2 cards with you today.  I've been collecting a lot of images from Craftin Desert Divas and finally printed them out and am getting them made into cards.

 This little cutie I colored with  my pencils and blended using gamsol.


For this card, I used the pre-colored version.
I thought the ruler paper would be cute for a baby card since they grow so fast!
 I love the buttons on the toy's wheels.  I also added a small pearl to the binky for extra dimension along with crystal effects.

I'm adding my latte card to the A bit more time to craft challenge

Graduation challenge


Today's theme is graduation.
I decided to use the School Day image and went a little differently with my card.
He's finished and heading off to start his next journey in life, whether it be college or career, I'm not sure, I'll decide when the time comes to use the card.


The background is a cutting file I have in my SIL library that I turned into a digital stamp.
I'm really happy with how it turned out.

This is the inside of the card. I added a pencil to the top.
