I saw this MFT image and thought it would make a great card for my hubby since he is a huge music lover. I wanted to make kind of a masculine card so I pulled some scraps from my desk to go with this Ala mode called Rock Star and the Mojo Monday sketch for this week.
I colored my image with copics, cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals. Then added a bit of red bakers twine and some red crystals all to match her cute red high tops.... The dp is just scraps I had on a pile on my desk. I like to pick through it every so often cause I find some real great stuff in that pile!!!
Well this one is going into hubbys lunch tomorrow. Hope he likes it!!!
Thanks for stopping by today.

My mom called requesting a handful of Birthday cards for her to have on hand so I went and pulled out some fun sets that I had not worked with in awhile. I tried to make these kind of simple so that they would not cost too much to mail but I am a big layer person so they tend to be heavy anyway.
Thanks for stopping by today. I am off to create something for the MFT weekly challenge.

Created my "weekly" holiday card to add to my stash for this year. I have been motivated by my bud Karen and her consistency so I jumped on her bandwagon for the once a week holiday card.
This card today is called Warm Wishes and is created with one of my FAV winter stamps from Verve called Winter Mittens. Being Jewish, I like to create a generic holiday card so I can use them for everyone. Not just Christmas and not just Chanukah.
Along with Winter Mittens I used paper from MME Signature Xmas. The dies I used were MFT Dainty Doilys and Monarch Border.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you enjoy your Monday.

This set, Love Monsters, from Taylored Expressions is just adorable. I do not have "little" kids anymore but I was just so drawn to the cuteness of these little monsters. I used the set with a MOJO Monday sketch #225 and some pretty scraps of designer paper from my desk. I am going to send this to my little niece for Valentines Day!!
So does anyone have plans for Valentines Day?? When it is during the week the way it is this year it seems to really get lost in the shuffle. I will just treat my kids to something extra sweet to eat. I buy these awesome brownies from a local caterer and they wrap them up beautifully for the holiday. As for DH....I have not even made him a card yet!! :(
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a great Friday
Stamp: Taylored Expressions Love Monsters
Paper: Scraps from Desk
Accessories: TE Layered Doily, TE Heart Border, MFT Prima Donna Petals Die

I thought I had better post last weeks MFT Sketch Challenge card before I started this weeks new challenge huh?? Well if you know me at all you know that this sketch really scared me. Those wonky angles and all but I do like the end result and how can I go wrong with this adorable image from MFT called Blowing Bubbles. I paper pieced and colored with my copics and cut out my image with rectangle nesties. My dp is new from MME and I accessorized with flowers made from the MFT Scallop Rolled Flower and the leaves are made with a SU sizzix die called Little Leafs then a few pearls here and there and I am done.
Thanks much for stopping by. Have a great day!!!!

I really enjoyed the Sweet Sunday Sketch for last week so I pulled out one of my fav Verve sentiments called Enjoy Today and got to work.I am so loving these colors together and the yummo new MME Miss Caroline Howdy Doody Paper along with some Authentique Splendid. Finishing things off today is a flower made with MFT Prima Donna Petals Die which if you have not already noticed I am in love with. :)
So our Superbowl party was a success and of course you know the Giants won so we had a great time.

Hi All!!! Happy Superbowl Sunday. We are excited here in NY because of the Giants playing so there are people "Hanging Out" all day today!! We are having company for the game also.
Another exciting event here in my town is the Annual Polar Bear Swim. We live at the beach and every year on Superbowl Sunday the Polar Bears take a plunge in the ocean to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation. It is a HUGE event here in our town and alot of money is raised every year. This year my kids have decided to take the plunge too. I personally will stay home and wait for my caterer to deliver my food but there will be thousands of people watching this event and participating. Fun stuff.
So it seemed appropriate to post this card I made last week for the Bella Sketch Challenge. I used one of my fav Bella Stamps called Hanging Baskets and I pulled out some older paper called Pixilicious. This stamp reminds me of the 70's with macrame basket hangers. Does anyone remember those or am I dating myself now!!!
Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy you Sunday..

A good friend of our family is having a surgical procedure tomorrow and I wanted to make a card for her to send with a small gift certificate from a local restaurant so she does not have to cook while she is recuperating. She LOVES her tea so I pulled out my CreativiTEA set from Taylored Expressions and created this card using the sketch CPS252 from Card Positioning Systems. It is simple but will be easy to mail.
So does anyone have big plans for Superbowl Sunday? We are having a party. Not huge but enough that I had to order some food. My croc pot only holds so much chili!!! LOL...but I am looking forward to it. Any excuse to get together with friends right!!!
Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy!
Stamps: TE Doctors Orders and TE CreativiTEA
Paper: Basic Grey Hopscotch
