Purses for Mothers Day & Blog Candy Giveaway

So I was stumped with what to do for my Mother's day cards this year. I came to the conclusion that I really don't have a lot of Mother's day stamps, let alone anything that says 'Mother' or 'mom' on it. A secret sister swap I did a few months ago gave me these adorable K&Company purse popup embellishments, and I thought. Hey, why don't I make purse cards! So I used the only real Mother's day type stamp set I have have with it. I created the sketch for these cards, and decided to use the same sketch and layout idea for all of the cards, just with different colors and papers, to match each of the purses. I started with the square card, then remembered I didn't have many square envelopes left, so went to the standard card size. Anyways, These are all the cards I made. (scroll to the bottom of the post for Blog Candy info)

Now on to the individual cards for their own spotlight each. I guess I'm putting them in order of which ones I like. haha. The square one is for my Mom, then the rest are for Grandmothers.

My mother-in-law will get a different card, because I don't want to give her one with a pin sticking in it, since she is blind and I'm afraid she's prick herself. Here's her card. It's all fuzzy-wuzzy.

See below for the blog candy info.

One Layer Card challenge

Ok. So I am big fan of KWerner's Design blog. And on her blog-o she is having a One-layer card challenge. So on Friday I finally got some time to do some cardmaking and I gave it a shot. I managed to finally get some kraft stock to play with, so I decided to use a stamp set I had gotten on sale after the holidays for it. I don't know if adding ribbon and a button doesn't officially make this a one-layer card, but I just had was calling for it. So if it works officially for the challenge great, if not...well I tried. 1 layered cards a realllyyyyy tough! Anyways enjoy!

Now my next post is all the Mother's day cards I made, so stay tuned.

Week #0 Argyle: Papertrey Chicks challenge

Here is the other post from me posts in one haha
Anyways, this is for the very first Papertrey Chicks challenge: Argyle.

 The card I made I gave to a friend of mine, as a "you rock dude!" since he finally proposed to another friend of mine. I however, could not bear to use pink on a guy card, so, I didn't follow it to a "T"....sorry. I used green instead of pink....I know...I stink at this whole challenge thing. Maybe I'll make another one to fit better
Anyways, enjoy!

Blog Candy and Cutie Critters 1 now in the Frenzified Store

Ok, so it is 1:52am here, and I am happy to announce without futher ado...Cutie Critters 1, is now available in the Frenzified store! So hop on over there, check out the new images and sentiments, and let me know what you think (or just buy what you love!)...both work for me. hehe
This new theme set is special, since it is the first time that you will get a .pdf file and a .jpg file of each image or sentiment. Basically you purchase a .zip file, then when you download it, then unzip the file, you have both a .jpg and .pdf file of our purchase! In previous sets, I have gotten many people asking about a .jpg format also, so I hit two birds with one stone, by making it available for everyone!
Below is one of my favs. The kitty cat image. Also shown is the matching sentiment set for the kitty cat image that is available for purchase over at Frenzified. :)

Another big change with this theme set, is in each sentiment set there are circular sentiments! Each circular sentiment also has a cute little icon that you can use to either put inside the circular sentiment, or just use to match your image and sentiment (such as the fish bone icon to go with the Kitty Cat sentiment)! So many possibilities!
I will post some card/project demos using the new set when I get a chance later, but for right now, be the first ones to see the new set available over at Frenzified!

And now to the blog candy time!
If you comment here, you will be entered to win a gift certificate to the Frenzified store for a free image and it's matching sentiment set!

Bunnies and flowers

So this Easter hasn't been extremely eventful, but that's ok. I like just relaxing. We are prepping to dye some eggs and already ate some chocolate and jelly beans. Our original plans of Easter dinner kinda fell through, so we're going to try and find a place to eat later.
Anyways, here is the card I made for the hubs and the cards I made for my Friday night Card Club's April card: flowers and spring theme. Enjoy!

I just loved this little word bubble saying. Too cute!

Another thing I got done and ready was my new paper rack my Mom got me for my Birthday. It's been sitting in my craft room waiting to be put up, and I finally took the time to organize my paper into it. I have the solid paper by color and the designer paper by month/theme.

Have a very Happy Easter everyone!
