Here is Ami's sketch which was an easy one for me this week, especially when I am running out of time. Everything is pulling me in ten different directions.

Sorry my card is uber simple but again it was a time restrained creation.

Hope you like anyway. Plus check out everyone elses great cards.

Another Birthday

It's this chicken great? I love it , but I should probably pick another image from this set to use. Especially since the others are just as cute. This set includes a cow, pig, lamb and of course the chicken. Or depending on how you look at it this could be a rooster. LOL!

There is also a coordinating phrase set that is just way to funny. Check it out at my angel website: http://maria.ismyangel.net

Inside read: Yeah, sure whatever.

Here is my sketch this week, simple and sweet.
Here is Julia's fab card. Leave her a comment too.















I did my card with the More Mimi soar with it collection. I also love this Spunky Sprite Girls set. The sentiment says it all...My dog likes you. Now at my house if my dog likes you that means you have slobber on you. LOL!

August Vintage Set

On this card, I was not happy with the outcome. The saying came out very blurred since I over inked the set, then I embossed it and it kind of looked like icing so I kept it. It reads holiday greetings.
I enjoy using the Reece SWIC, I keep every little scrap to use.

Vintage Stamp of the Month

This card is made with the Vintage Stamp for August. I used the bat from the set. Then I used the linear sentiments set to create a patterned paper. I used the mini bet set to create the Boo!. I love being able to create any word I want. Oh, and I also used the running stitches to frame the bat.
I know it is a little early for Halloween, but this set has so many possibilities. If you want to get your hands on this wonderful set contact me.

Wishes!


Some times you wish that all our dreams could come true. Then you look back at your life and realize you are exactly where you are suppose to be. I often refer to a poem I read once that said every person comes in and out of your life for a reason. I often think that is how life is and why we follow a certain path. I feel his hand guiding me in these decisions that I make and the paths I choose.
My life is filled with wishes (blessings) that have come true. I pray yours is too!

Some Bunny


I love this brown cardstock that the Angel Company carries it is so luscious! I added a little embossed circles with a pencil eraser, versamark, and Transcendence embossing powder. This is the great greetings and some bunny stamps.
Hope you like it.

This week's sketch comes from Angie, and I thought wow! When I saw it I was trying to coordinate in my head what stamps, cardstock and patterned paper I should use.
Then it hit me we have a new stamp of the month that would work so great. It is So Squirelly and I paired it with the Willoughby cardstock and Soar with it design collection. Well, ladies let me know what you think.

Another Wishing you Happiness Card

I love simple cards, they often speak to me. I not telling what they say...LOL! I again was playing with the Wishing you Happiness set, this time I paired it with the script background and I just love the effect. I actually copied the design from a card that I received at Christmas time from my friend Julia H. she does amazing work. She knows that my favorite color is pink so she sent me a pink Christmas card even had a pink tree. :o)
It really makes me happy when someone know exactly what I like, and then makes it for me. She even made me this fabulous clip board that I use all the time.
Still love it!
