 Here is my Project for the hop I was given the Farm-Critters



I chose to make some cute little cards with the farm animals. Can't go wrong with animal cards,

I cut all the card bases with the Cricut Explore and DS, All of the farm animals were colored in with markers and hand cut. I used scraps for the different pattern pieces.




I traced around the cut out owl so the owl design is on the inside. 









I then wanted to share with you a card I made using the FREE SVG you get for hopping along and leaving comments and also following everyone. Just the cutest file.





So I guess you should be hopping on over to Tammy's page to see what animal set she had. Her project is going to amaze you.

Happy Anniversary - young love- sunsational stamps






Good morning world. How are you on this fine Friday in February? This is our last friday in February, next thing you know it will be March.

I am here to share with you a card I made my parents for there 42 anniversary. I really loved the Young-Love file so I chose to use it.



Let me explain a little about my parents. They have been together since mom was 13 and papa was 15. They got married (right before my oldest sister was born) and after a while divorced. They then
re-married each other (right before my baby brother was born) so they celebrate 2 anniversaries. The first one is February 24th (my sisters age is the years of the anniversary.). The second one is January 20th (my baby brothers age is the years of the anniversary) .

So we just celebrated there 42nd anniversary 2 days ago. Its customary papa and I take mom out for frog legs for both anniversaries and her birthday (February 9th) , we all enjoy it . I'll share a few photos of the night below.


My papa thought he was funny and told mom to pack up the frog leg bones because I can craft with them. So I guess I need to figure out what I am doing with these here bones.
 

The place we go to for frog legs is Garys Oyster Bar right here in Polk county, FL . The food is delirious. Staff is great.

Now that I bore you let's get onto my project I have for you today.

I took the forever young couple and colored them in with no specific marker and pen. I cut the hearts out separate so they could be placed where-ever. I used a blank card base I got from Michaels. The back of the card is pink. lol Front is flowery. I then took a small paper doily and inked it in Tim Holtz distress ink.





So there is my anniversary story and project.

Make sure you stop by Sunday February 28th for our February stamp release, You won't want to miss the new stamp sets.

February layout


Evening friends. how are you doing on this chilly night?  It is 11:34 PM here and currently 40 degrees. That is cold for the sunshine state.

Anyways I wanted to share with you a double page layout I did with a Creative Kuts file. I know , I know February is over but I am certain you have a few projects from then, as I do.

I made this double by using 2 red pieces from DCWV Immortal Love Stack. The photo mats are from my stash. They was 6x6. I put the designer paper on top of light pink scrap card stock. I print the files and colored and cut them all out by hand. In my photo my pages are backwards. lol The girl should be on the left and boy on the right. I painted the girl cupids finger and toe nails. lol . I also used glitter ink pens on some of it. Inked around the mats.

Whelp on to my photos.












I hope you enjoyed my double .  Have you used creative kuts files and made a creation? I'd love to see it.

Until next time.

I'm linking up into the following challenges:

happy valentines elephant - sunsational stamps.

Hello, how are you all doing on this chilly morning? Can't believe they say 6 more weeks of winter. Spring can't get here fast enough, I tell ya.
Anyways it is Friday and that means it is my day to post for Sunsational Stamps.

Today I am sharing my card I made for my Auntie whom loves elephants. I used Lisa's Ella Elephant from Sunsational Stamps.

I colored her in with random markers (there is no specific brand in my stash) and gel pens. Behind her I placed a 2 inch doily. Coloring it with markers and pens also.  I used a heart I cuto ut of scrap card stock, colored it pink and wrote on it with glitter gel pen. Also outlined it in the same glitter pen. The heart is pop dotted up so its 3-d.


Here is my goto random marker and pen collection. I also have a box with small size glitter and gel pens in that I use for alot. 
 


Have you used any of Sunsational Stamps yet? If so which one did you choose to play with? If not why not go and give them a try? She also has SVG files you are going to love.

Angel card-Sunsational stamps

Hello, how are you all doing on this chilly morning? I can not believe how cold florida has been this year. Can't wait for spring.

Anyways it is Friday and that means it is my day to post for Sunsational Stamps. 

I really enjoyed working with this beautiful angel . It really can be used for ANYTHING. I didn't have any particular theme in mind. I made this for a angel card swap on FB. 

I used scrap paper for background, mini doily colored in with markers, a digi sentiment off google. and markers and pens to color her in. 

I really am liking how she came out.





Have you made anything useing the svg's and digis from sunsational stamps ?  If you haven't, whatcha waiting for? If you have how did you like them (i love them all) I'd love to see something you have created using Lisa's stamps.
