Busy, Busy, Busy!!!!

Well....I have not been so good at squeezing in my crafty time but I have been busy!  I have decided to open up an in-home family child care and have been working on plans and paperwork for that....which takes up much of my free time right now.   But I did manage to squeeze a little scrappy time in for myself and I have created these cards.  I think I need to go back to scrapbooking because the card thing....well....I am just not feeling it right now.  I do have to make up some samples for my sister in law as she is getting married and I am making her invites.......I need the mojo to get going on that project!  LOL

Here is what I have created in the past week or so:

The stamps are all Unity!
The paper I am not sure off most of it....I have been on a crafty spending freeze so I am using up my stash of paper which is just not appealing to me right now....but I must use some of it up before I can allow myself to buy more!  LOL

I used the sketch from over at Card Patterns for this card:

The sketch over at Card Positioning Systems inspired this card:

Now off to a few projects I need to complete for a friend and some vinyl projects I need to complete for my children (they have been asking for awhile).

A little challenge love!

I am so excited to be back in the challenge scene.  I love a good scrappy challenge!

This card is for both the Unity Stamp company facebook challenge (use an itty bitty) and also for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge.

I used the Calendar itty bitty from Unity Stamp company along with the sentiment stamp from the February 2011 Unity kit of them month club.  I love how simple this card is but yet looks fabulous.

I started with a piece of Kraft cardstock and stamped the calendar image directly onto the card.

I then went around the card with some distress ink (Walnut Stain and Festive Berries).

A little touch of Washi tape (love that stuff!).

Then I threw together a couple of flowers and this fun brad. (I took some walnut stain distress ink after the metal brad to give it a little bit of a worn look to it.  It was such a bright shining silver that just didn't go well with the feel of the card.....a little distress ink did the trick ;) ).

With a couple of pop dots; I added a few pins behind the flower and attached to card.

Throw on a few gems for that extra touch of bling.

Stamp the sentiment and voila!

Thanks for visiting and don't be shy!  Before you leave please take a moment to say hi! ;)

Peachy Keen Stamps Let's Face it Friday challenge

Hello!  Today I have a card for you that I threw together (actually two cards).  I was visiting the Peachy Keen Stamps blog and saw their new challenge and the color scheme was perfect for this cute patterned paper I have been sitting on.  It is a pretty simple card....but sometimes that is better that way.  

I used Create-a-Critter Cricut Cartridge for the cute little sea creatures and the Critter Faces Peachy Keen Stamps set for the faces.  

The happy birthday sentiment is from Stampin' UP!

Thanks for visiting! Don't forget to take a minute and leave to comment to let me know you stopped by!  :)
