I want to be a Cowgirl

I took a lot of liberties with Jamie's sketch this week, but I really needed a card with GiddyupaBella and this is what I came up with. My niece loves horses and she is going to camp next week, so I'll be sending this to her. I hope she likes it.

A Monster Bash!

Helllooo! Did I scare you?! :)

I have such a hard time making a card for a boy, but I needed one this week, so I gave it a good shot. I combined it with this month's twisted challenge, to make a card with a Bit of Bling! For my bling, I painted the details of the image with Smooch and then added a row of Stamping Bella glitter dots. I hope he likes it!

Show Me Your Bliss

Welcome to my blog! I hope you're having a great week and that you're enjoying your summer! I haven't been able to find enough time for stamping, but things are going so well here!

Vicki challenged us to make a card that shows our bliss. I think she was looking for a hobby or pasttime that brings us joy, but I kept coming back to this image. It really is one of my very favorite stamps and I just loved the idea of pairing it with this new Basic Gray paper. What's my "bliss"? Home! Whether I'm stamping, reading, playing on my computer, spending time with my family, working in my yard, etc., I just love to be home. And, even better, I love to be in my pajamas and robe with a pretty quilt! this card does it for me! So, what's your bliss? :)

Summer Girl

Here's a colorful, summery card for the Summer-themed Challenge that Sparkle is hosting on the SCS Bella Forum today. I wanted to use all colors of ribbon so I just started tying little scrap pieces onto a piece of blue and then stapled it into a strip of dp. It kind of reminds me of those streamers of flags you see at swim meets. Hope you're having a great summer!
