Happy Baby Blog Hop Ginger!!

One of our fellow DT members, Ginger, is expecting a new arrival. We are all so happy and excited for her that we decided to shower her with a baby blog hop!!

I stated in a previous post that my favorite card to make is one with a specific person in mind. To pick the perfect image and colors and sentiment for the perfect occaision are what I find the most fun and rewarding.

So, for this card I took inspiration from Ginger's most adorable baby room. So cute right?! I used the circles on the wall, colors and elephant blanket and canvases to create this little cutie :0) The sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps.

I know you want to see some more baby cards - they're so darn cute! Hop on over to your next stop KATIE. And don't forget to stop by Ginger's blog and wish her happy baby wishes :0)

Congratulations Ginger!! Your going to be a wonderful mother! Wishing you a lifetime of love, health and happiness with your little miracle :0)

PMS November Blog Hop

It's here!! Are you ready for some serious eye candy!! The PMS DT have put together some awesome samples using this months new release. Hop on over to the PMS blog to start the journey, but if you've already done that and you're well on your way, well then here ya go . . .

I'm using the new sentiment "Christmas in the heart . . ." I couldn't decide if I wanted to go cute and simple or elegant/shabby chic, so I did BOTH!! What do you think? I love it that the sentiment is simple and generic enough to use on both cards. The first card uses the tree that is also being released this month. I just added a few heart stickers to coordinate with the sentiment. The second card uses a whole bunch of buttons I received from my MIL who in turn received them from her mom. So they are vintage to say the least! Guess who's getting this card for Christmas :0)

Having fun so far? Well then why don't you join us tonight at the PMS release party where the fun will continue. Katie promises this release will be packed with lots of freebies :0) It starts at 8:00 EST/7:00 CST in the PMS forum.

And I'm SURE you've been collecting your letters to reveal your secret code right? I've got not 1, but 2 letters to add to your list!! Double cards, double letters!!

T and Y are what you need to jot down before you hop on over to Sweet Miss Christi's blog who I'm sure has something fabulous to show you!!

Happy hopping, happy day :0)

Mood Swings and Santa Baby

It's Sneak Peek day 3 over at the Paper Makeup Stamps Blog. Today is all about the Mood Swings and a little Santa Baby! I used the new Moody for Holly image and a simple little sentiment on this card. After standing back and looking at this completed card the first thing that came to mind was Little House on the Prairie!! Remember nasty ol' Nellie? Remember all those BIG bows she used to wear in her hair? The placement of the bow on this card reminded me of those big bows that used to sit oddly out of place right on top of her head!! Oh well, I had fun coloring her. I tried to use a little different hair color this time. I wasn't trying to make her old and gray, just a little "frosty" and winter like (and to match the paper) :0)
Have a good one - it's Friday you know!!

PMS Sneak Peek - The Nutcracker Sweet!

It's that time of the month again - and rather than dreading it, I'm lovingit! Loving the cramps (in my fingers from stamping and coloring), the cravings (for awesome new images) and the "Mood-y Swings" - more on that tomorrow :0)

Today I'm showing a card I made with the new Nutcracker image that is being released. There are a lot of single stamps this month for you to pick and choose to your own liking. The sentiment is also being released this month - Love it!!

I colored the image with Copics, and popped him up on a background of sheet music paper that I antiqued with Ranger distess ink. I added lots of sparkle with snow glitter and a big snowflake that is actually an ornament I picked up after Christmas last year. For a final wintery touch I used a snowflake border punch I found in the clearance rack at a local store. I'm pretty sure it's a Martha Stewart punch. It wasn't in the packaging anymore when I bought it.

Be sure to head over to the PMS blog today to see some other images being released. And leave a comment too for your chance to win the images being shown.

Have a Happy - Sweet day!
