Enjoy the Ride

Off to a new week, can you believe it's the last week in June.  Talk about flying by, this year seems to be moving at almost warp speed!  I'm so happy to be back today sharing more creations using the wonderful Frantic Stamper dies!  Seriously, I have so enjoyed playing with this release.  

My first card uses the new Ferris Wheel die (FRA-DIE-10215), Tickets (FRA-DIE-10223), Stitched Rounded Squares (FRA-DIE-10232) and the little banner and "grass" was made with Stitched Double Fishtail Labels (FRA-DIE-09735) -

The second card uses a the wonderful Ferris Wheel die (FRA-DIE-10215) again which works well with this fun Echo Park paper A Fair to Remember.

Thanks so much for stopping in.  If you have any questions please let me know.  Be sure to check out the Frantic Stamper Facebook page and their web page here to keep up with all the fun happenings!

Love You To The Stars And Back

Mandy has a very fun challenge for us this week at Little Red Wagon.  It's a perfect opportunity to use one of the many fab techniques to create you very own galaxy or night sky.  I would think stars and moons would be cool to use too.  I decided to use distress ink, water and embossing powder to create my sky.  I even managed to get it a little Northern Lights effect and added a few tiny PPP stars.

Here's my card using Mama Elephant's Bear Hugs -

I certainly hope you'll have time to play along with us at Little Red Wagon.  Seeing what the Girlfriends have created would at the very least be suggested.  You know their stuff is going to be worth taking a look at.

Happy Hump Day, thanks for stopping by!

Oh, Baby!

Hi, everyone.  Happy weekend!  I'm kicking off my Saturday by sharing a couple of baby cards I made with the new June Frantic Stamper release, Summer Carnival Fun.  When I saw this little Performing Lion, I could just see him sitting in a baby's crib all cute and cuddly.  Here's what happened -

I couldn't stop with just one and made another card using Performing LionStitched Rounded SquaresDouble Stitched Fishtail Label and the sentiment is by Mama Elephant.  

Thanks so much for coming by.  I pray your weekend is full of all the things you love!

#468 Playful Kitty

Happy Saturday!  If it's Saturday, that means we have a great new sketch at Sketch Saturday.  Gloria created this rather CAS and definitely fun design -

Our generous sponsor this week is -

Here's my take on the sketch using a darling freebie (yes, really, it's free, check it out) from our sponsor, Playful Kitty -

This is such a wonderful sketch and such a sweet digi.  I colored the kitties up with Copic markers to resemble by beloved, Shammy Cat, a lilac point siamese I dearly loved.  The papers are by Nitwit Collections and the double bow was tied using my Bow-It-All.

As always, I hope you will have time to join us this week.  You can go here for more details on the challenge.  Remember there is a prize up for grabs from Scrap N' Dipity.  I also want to remind you of the DT call and encourage you to give it a try.  This is a great, easy going team with fab sketches and wonderful sponsors.  Check here here for more information.

Thanks for stopping by!
