Good friends stick together!

My craft room had been empty and sad and lonely lately.  This card has taken me more than a week to finish!!!  But I finally got 'er done!!

On the 1st, my card used just the "Li'l Scare" image.  But this image with all 4 characters is so fun!!  The colored image and sentiment come from the Doodle Pantry Li'l Oz - BUNDLE plus.  (It has all the individual characters as well as the combination, plus it's on sale right now!)

Aren't they cute??

~Doodle Pantry's Li'l Oz image and sentiment
~7 Gypsies "journey" DP
~Spellbinders Fleur de Lis
~Spellbinders Petite Ovals and Petite Scalloped Ovals
~white gel pen
~ribbon, hemp cord, button, and adhesive pearls from stash

Paper Playtime #15 - patterned paper
Die Cuttin' Divas #125 - "Twice is Nice" (I used 2 Fleur de Lis cuts for the corners)

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #208

Good morning to you!   Time for another Tuesday Morning Sketch!!   We've got a great sketch and a great sponsor, so please come and play along with us!!

Our sponsor this week is CC Designs...


Our sketch is an older one we are revisiting...

Here is my card...


~DCWV 'birthday wishes' DP
~'Girly Girl Cookie' stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy
~Spectrum Noir markers
~Spellbinders Ovals and Petite Scalloped Ovals
~MS border punch
~button and twine from stash

After getting this together, I regret using the birthday DP because though this would work for a birthday card, I doubt I'll use it for that.  Speaking of birthdays, our oldest turns 17 on Thursday!  I just can't believe it!!   My kids are growing up waaaaaay too quickly for me!

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the rest of our DT...


We'd love to have you come and play along with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Summertime new releases at McMahon Five Designs!

Good morning to you!!  Are you enjoying your summer?  We are!  In June, our family went on vacation and had a wonderful time!!   We loved the Bronx Zoo, the 9/11 Memorial, the Liberty Bell, Six Flags Great Adventure, and the kids had fun in the waves of the Atlantic one evening until the lightning and thunder!!   We've been busy since being back, but we were able to finally get our pool cleaned out and filled and went in yesterday for the first time.  It felt so good!!

Enough about me... today you can find some fantastic new releases at McMahon Five Designs!!   To see them all in one place and some great creations by the DT, click HERE for the post at McMahon Five Designs Blog.  

We saw lots of turtles and tortoises at the zoo so this image just jumped at me when I saw it!

My card is made using Kris's Beach Girl set and At The Beach digi papers. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!  Please stop by the BLOG to see all the wonderful creations with all the great new releases!!

Christmas in July :)

Tomorrow is Friday!!  :) :) :)  Actually, I don't really care what day of the week it is... there is always something going on!!  And July is going by waaaaaay too quickly!!

So after complaining about time flying... what kind of card do I have to show you?  A Christmas card!!!   After all, it is only 167 days away! 

This doesn't have the traditional look to it, but I was pleased with it!   I made this using digi image, paper, and sentiment from Doodle Pantry.  These are some of July's new releases.   The Vintage Lamppost set is FREE with any purchase until July 24.  The Holiday Greetings set is FREE if you play along with Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #36 this month.

Once it was all printed out, it was easy to cut everything with my Spellbinders and finish it off with a touch of ribbon, a button tied with hemp cord, and some adhesive pearls. 

The Paper Players #153 - Christmas in July
Merry Monday - month long "anything goes" 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Doodle Pantry COLOR releases

I hope all my American family and friends had a wonderful Independence Day!  My husband is a pastor and a few years ago we started having a picnic at our house for our church family.  We had a bit smaller crowd that usual yesterday with just under 80 folk here.  It was hot and humid but we had a great time!!

There are some more "new" products for you over at Doodle Pantry!!  Laurie has colored some more older products.   These are fantastic for getting your projects done quickly!!!  And she has added a great digi paper pack!!

My card uses Orange & Cherries Color plus

Great set!!

I cut my image with Spellbinders Fleur de Lis.  My BG paper is from fancy pants "summer's end."  I embossed a piece of vellum with Swiss Dots and used Fiskars Threading Water border punch on it, added a bit of ribbon and a small bow to finish it off.

Be sure to visit Doodle Pantry to see these additions!! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
