My bookmark

I decided to make myself a bookmark for all my summer reading. I use my magnolia stamps that I just acquired ... I think it turned out really cute. I used my copics to colour her, my name is at the top I used Making Memories Rub ons.

High Hopes challenge 36

For this week's challenge we had to use our paper from our scrap pile. I do this a lot so this wasn't too bad. I did these for my girl's teacher and one for the bus driver! I hope they love them!

High Hopes Challenge #35

This weeks challenge was "Lotta circles". My High Hopes image has been cut with my circle template, and the background was embossed with my Cuttlebug circle and dot template. I added some buttons for extra circles!! I used my copics to colour little Anthony and added some stickles for extra glitter. I am going to give this card to my hubby for Father's Day ... sure won't be a surprise since he has seen it already ... but at least he can't say he didn't get one!!! Thanks for the ideas!!

B-day card

Here is the card I made for my husband`s grandmother. I thought she would really get the humour in it and not be offended in any way. The image is High Hopes

Birthday party Invites

I slightly re-vamped my daughters b-day invites because I didn't like how the paint looked, so here are all of her invites that are going to go out to her friends tomorrow. It is a Big Lady Theme, with a tea party, crafts and treats. It should be fun!

my daughter's b-day invitations

My daughter has a b-day coming up so I thought I would make her invites. She is turning 5, and she is having a "big lady" party where the girls will come in adult clothes (like dress up) we are going to have a tea party (with real tea cups they can take home). I am also going to do a craft and a few games like you would play at a baby shower or wedding shower. She is so excited. The image is from High hopes, the "5" was a stencil that I painted in her choice of colour (green is her fav.) using MM paint, the saying is cut from my cricut Beyond Birthday. The inside was embossed using a cuttlebug template and then I chalked the words to make them stand out more. One down ... 7 more to make!!! It was a lot of fun and I am happy to be able to make something special for her big day!

High Hopes Challenge #33

Here is a cute little Father's Day Card I made for my Father in law. I used the stamp "Anthony James", I coloured this image with my copics, tombo, and used 3 different colours of stickles. I cut the background out using my Wild Card Cartridge for my Cricut. This was so much fun to make, I really had to think of what would be best for this card. Thank you! Hope my FIL likes it!
