Paper Smooches Giving Thanks Challenge

Hi everyone!

Today I created a cute little card for this month's Paper Smooches Giving Thanks Challenge.

Paper Smooches Stamps truly have "the" cutest critter stamps EVER!
I love coloring them up and using them on my cards....
Today I used this adorable little deer stamp.
My color scheme for my card was inspired by the colors I chose for the deer.

All patterned papers by October Afternoon

I combined two different Paper Smooches Stamps sets to create this card:

Thank you all for taking a look!
And the happiest Thanksgiving to all my American friends!

Make A Wish....Batty Birthday Card

Hello lovelies!
Today I am sharing with you a fun little card I made for my friends birthday.
I am just getting to know this beautiful soul, but I still wanted to create her a personal card.
She has a tattoo of bunch of bats on top of her shoulder and up her neck, so I used this as inspiration for her birthday card. Hopefully she will like it!

Both the bat and the "make a wish" sentiment are from Paper Smooches.
I also stamped "happy birthday" inside.

Anyways...thank you for stopping by and looking at my little creation.
Happy Tuesday!

Layered Paper !! Paper Smooches June Challenge

Hello all!
When I saw what this month's challenge was over at Paper Smooches I knew I HAD to participate....
Layered paper....ummm.....I am the queen of layered!
At least it is something I love to do...mix and match and layer up....

So here is my take on the challenge...I chose to layer up using the Foliage die....
it helped me create this pretty little whimsy card :)

More than coffee....

 Hi everyone!

I've been very slowly getting back into my creative mode....
I did make some cute Christmas cards, but I didn't blog them....and now here I am making a single Valentine card.....a bit sporadic...but I think that is how creativity can be sometimes...ebb and flow.

Anyways, I wanted to share my card with all of you...hope you like it :)

The basic design came from an inspiration sketch from a facebook group I am a part of :

And of course I dug into my Unity Stamps. I used 

And for the sentiment I used the June 2012 KOM

I used the "I like you more than ice cream" stamp but I masked the "ice cream" part off so that I could change it to coffee to personalize my card....
a great way to get even MORE versatility out of you sentiments.

Anyways, there you have it! 
My V-day card....
Happy love month to all of you!
