Happy Birthday to My Li'l Monkey

Today is my little girl's birthday... she's so outrageously into monkeys (still!) so I used this Dustin Pike cupcake stamp and made this tent card. I found the instructions at the Just Magnolia blog HERE and it's also the challenge this week at CRAZY 4 CHALLENGES . (I didn't have any jump rings so I used some coordinating wire and wrapped it into a coil and poked one end through a li'l hole in his hand so he's hanging from it.) These are lots of fun to make! Here's a look from the side. Happy Birthday, Sweetie!! Thanks for stopping by ~ happy inking!

Hello Friend

Just poppin' in to say "Hello" to all my blogger friends out there today *Ü* Hope you're enjoying the nicer weather? Which reminds me... graduation is coming up and I have 2 cards to make for them. My nephew is graduating H.S. in a few weeks and my daughter is graduating 5th grade. Yep... they actually have a 5th grade graduation, can you believe it?? She also had one from Kindergarten. But this marks a turning point in her life I suppose... starting Middle School next year can be quite nerve-wracking, but she's an excellent student and makes good choices so I have faith that she will be just fine. ANYWAY! Lol... I wanted to ask if you know of any graduation digis out there? If so, please leave me a comment and let me know. I've gotta get started on some cards soon! ;)

LOC Milk Carton Giftbox

Here's a little giftbox I made about a week or so ago using 3 different stamp sets from Layers of Color : Flutterescent , Nature Walk , and A Touch of Elegance . You can find directions for this milk carton style box on SCS here .

Here Fishy, Fishy!!

Happy Thursday!! It's an awesomely nice day out today... sunny and 72 degrees! *Ü* Needless to say I'm not inside crafting, but I wanted to quickly post this card I made last night, using Fancy Fins , ( McMahon Five Designs ) along with this cat stamp (Eureka Stamps ) I've had for years.  The cat's head is flat on the polka-dot paper and the green layer with the fish and paws is popped up with dimensionals. I added crystal effects to the bubbles, and dew drops to the corners of the green.  Thanks for looking!  Hope you get crafty and Ink Something :)

Another {Sweet} Cowgirl LaLa Page

If you saw my last scrap page I posted on Wednesday then you prolly guessed that another was coming huh? Especially after my daughters saw how cute that page was, my other DD wanted one, so she picked out the colors and this time I used Sweet LaLa and added the same cowgirl hat and boots that I drew. I finally found a use for the Red Glitter Flock that my friend Lisa sent me for my birthday! I used it for the trim on the hat *Ü* I also used some red glitter gellyroll pens to highlight her belt and boots. This also fits this week's LaLa Challenge , which is to alter an embellishment. Granted, I altered the same thing as my last page by making twine into a flower, but this time I used black instead of natural. I also wrapped some red twine for a lasso and put in her hand. Here's a close up of Sweet Lala as a cowgirl. I have a ton of other pictures of my girls on horses so I'm sure I'll be finding other fun LaLas to add a hat and boots to! *Ü* Another li'l bi
