mixin' it up again

I love this tree - it's from the Sept Monthly Mix - Something to Crow About. It's so versitile and I just love that you could use it for any holiday or occasion. I also love this paper - I've again been trying to use up the scraps leftover from big projects. I can never seem to use them all up! But that's ok when it's one of my fav - I just love the grren strip across this card.

I wanted to share a pillow that I made to go with this quilt. Ruffles are everywhere and I thought it would be a cute additiont o her bed - a couple more are in the works. I used a serger on the blue strips of fabric and just zigzaged the pink fabric. I was a lot of fun to make this and soooo easy!

new monthly mix!

I am loving this new monthly mix from Lizzie Anne - it has so many great images! This rooster was especially fun - a couple months ago I picked up some chicken/rooster kitchen themed paper and embellishements - perfect for this stamp. I love the chicken wire paper that doesn't scream chicken wire. if you haven't signed up yet, do it now! you won't be disappointed!

lots of flowers

when I saw this single, I knew right away that I wanted a whole row of these flowers, and I didn't want to color them either. I love all the flowers here, and they coordinate so well with so many of the other Lizze Anne sets. Buttons, of course, seem to always finish off a card lately..

A Winner

This is one of the singles that was released on August 1 - along with the football player. I wanted to do something a little different with the sentiment, I even wanted to make it girly. I love how it turned out. The background paper has lots of sparkles on it along with the flower. And this is becoming one of my favorite color combos!

Mix it up!

I am loving the Monthly Mix stamps from LAD - such a great assortment of useful stamps and you know how am I about it must be useful. I love this little bird and the colors are a bit of a departure from the norm for me - this paper is one of my favorites. I wanted to pull the brighter colors from it and the buttons helped to pull it all together. I'm finally using my 'stash' of favorite ribbon. It must be used in order to buy more! At least that is what I keep telling myself so that I will use it!

Best Wishes

When I first saw the football player, I knew I wanted to do something with him and the cheerleader - so I made a Best Wishes card. I think it woudl be great for an engagment card or a wedding card. Her pompoms have a bit of sparkle shimmery paint and his helmet got a touch of shimmerz. After all, a wedding cards needs some bling!
