Celebrate your fabulousness!

This is one of the stamp sets I chose for free as part of my SAB rewards. I just LOVE the sentiment "celebrate your fabulousness!"
I am off to Ottawa this weekend for Stampin' Girls convention plus my all day crop on Sunday. Busy, busy! Poor Mike, all by himself all weekend! LOL!

Wonderful Little Things...

This is based on sketch 166 from SCS. I love this paper, but I have no idea what line it is!

Baby Brown

So by now it is no secret that shades of brown are my favourite colours. I like them for my clothes, for decor, and for cards. I think these shades make great baby boy cards, too. In fact, had I had a baby, I would have decorated the room in these shades of brown. Think classic Pooh.
So here I have used Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa and Barely Banana as my palette. I am thinking of making this as my swap card for Stampin' Girls convention in Ottawa this weekend, but I'm not sure if OTHER people will like I am asking for your HONEST you like it? It is OK if you don't, I won't stop visiting your blogs or anything.

What're YOU Lookin' at?

I made this page at Auntie Em's free crop last Saturday. My mom's friend had given us the cat house and my cats immediately took to it.

Puppy Love

Another co-worker asked me to make a card for the woman who breeds the dogs he is getting his puppies from. He said she is being super amazing, giving the puppies all kinds of extras to bring home, so inside I stamped "You are Ter-RUFF-ic!" He picks up his puppies on Saturday, so hopefully she likes the card. Stamps: Puppy Love(CTMH)
CardStock: Taken with teal, real red, white
Ink: Taken with teal, real red, chocolate chip
Acc: Red grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals

Enjoy every moment

I decided to pull out stamp sets I haven't used in a long time. Here I used Enjoy Every Moment. I added a sentiment from It's Your Birthday on the second card.
I random stamped the background on both cards in turquoise, pumpkin and green galore.

Recipe Card

My co-worker gave this really retro looking paper, reminds me of the Christmas wrapping paper from when I was a kid. She is a Christmas FANATIC, so I made her this recipe card using the paper she gave me. This is the outside....
and this is the inside. The recipe is for Lemon Squares.

Big, Bright Birthday!

I never seem to have enough birthday cards on hand, and I just adore my clown set, so I took it out again! What a difference colour makes, huh? Compared to the baby clown cards I did earlier.
I LOVE Bold Brights for kids cards!

Just Clownin' Around Again.

I really like this set. When it first came out 2 summers ago, it was not very popular, but I LOVED it! It is one of the few retired sets I have kept. When done in pastels, it makes great baby birthday cards. When done in bold brights, it's great for kids.
I used It's Your Birthday to create the backgrounds on these cards. I used 4 of the stamps and random stamped all over.

Stamp sets: It's Your Birthday, Clownin' Around
CS: Cool Caribbean, Barely Banana, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
ACC: markers, brads, grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals

Nautical Birthday

One of my card buying customers requested a birthday card for his father, something "manly" and this is what I made. I think Soft Sky and Basic Gray look so good together, and I LOVE this old SU set, Set Sail.
