Shell-Ebrating YOU

Hello and Happy Monday Crafty Friends!
How have you guys been??? As you know
I was on Spring Break all last week and I
had plans to stay home and craft! Well...

That just NEVER happened! We ended up
running around every day last week... Finally,
 on Sunday, I was able to sleep in and just rest
after a crazy busy week. So now I'm trying to
play blogger catch up with all of you --

I'm hoping for Easter break in about
a week and a 1/2 that I'll be able to stay home
and maybe get some crafting done --
That is my goal... so we shall see!

In the meantime, I did have fun, Vegas
was a blast for the Hubby & myself
we got to visit with Family & friends
we hadn't seen in awhile and I got to
eat at Giordano's (my FAVORITE) Chicago
Pizza place! I knew they had one Downtown
 and we've eaten there... But going Downtown
was not something we wanted to do again...
We lived in Las Vegas so downtown is more
for the tourist which we are not! So...

While out and about getting ready to grab Brunch with
our oldest son I noticed they had opened a NEW
Giordano's Pizza off of Charleston & Rampart
I was screaming with excitement and my hubby
was totally on board with us eating there
for his Birthday Dinner... We met up with one of my
Good close friends and enjoyed the BEST PIZZA
in the world!! - Which made for an Excellent
Birthday weekend!! 

We'll be heading back to Vegas in April
for his Dr. appt and trust me when I say
Giordano's will be at the top of our list
for eating Lunch or dinner while we're there!

Anywho... Enough about my crazy week -

I do have a card to share - I made it about 2 weeks
ago and thought you might like to see it --

Isn't it just ADORABLE?? 

Remember when I made that Christmas
card with the stencil background & Penguin?? CLICK HERE to SEE IT
I told you I made another card using that fun stencil and colors
Well... this is the card!
I think it turned out so cute and just plain old FUN!

SumMore Fun - Mood Board Challenge #24

Hello & Happy Friday Everyone!
Today... starts another FUN Challenge over at: 

 YAY! I know how you
guys enjoy a good Challenge!

Our Mood Board is - 

 You can use theTheme, pictures, or color combo
 You don't have to use
a stamp from SumMore Fun if you don't have one!

All the rules for this fun challenge are RIGHT HERE!

Here's what I created to inspire you --

Isn't this just darling???

I went with the colors, bunny image & eggs
in the mood board --

I'm using the Bunny with Egg Stamp from
Victorine Originals and Doodlebug Papers
I added some Rainbow Mixed Jewels as well

I stamped my bunny on some Pink Doodlebug paper
and cut it out with my Scan in cut Machine
Then I stamped another bunny out with some
Polka Dot Doodlebug Paper and Fussy cut the
Egg and the tiny feet circles ---

As you know, I like to decorate the inside just a tad -
So I stamped the (You're some "bunny" special) sentiment
from a Victorine Originals Stamp and I had some
Small Bunny Dies and thought they would be perfect
for the inside of my card along with a strip of
Doodlebug paper --

I hope you guys can join us --

Jingle Bell Rock....

Hello & Happy Friday Crafty Friends!!!
The weekend is here and that means I get
to Start my Spring Break Vacation!! Yipee!!!

We are heading to Vegas today to celebrate 
my Hubby's Birthday - 
He turns the big 5 - 0 tomorrow!!
I have plans to get some balloons that
say Over the Hill and maybe get some 
Black flowers too!!! I've done this for my family
when they've all hit that milestone! It's just
plain old FUN for us! :)

We're only staying the weekend, so I'll
be home all next week crafting (I Hope)
Maybe get some Spring Cleaning done???
Nawww... that's just CRAZY talk right there!! LOL

Anywho... I just wanted to share my
Christmas card with you-

The foil background I made last year when I tried
foiling for the first time (Gina K. Designs) - and the penguin trio
is from Lawn Fawn which I also colored last year
 The Penguins (Here we go A-waddling) are colored on some
Tim Holtz watercolor paper using my Zig Real Brush Pens
They were die cut out with my Scan N Cut Machine
I added some dots to the scarf, hat, & Earmuffs with
a White Gel Pen

The Rectangle Stitched Die and Happy Holiday
Circle die are both from My Favorite Things

And the Stitched Bracket die in vellum 
is from KasierKrafts
I used some Fun Foam to pop up the
Foil rectangle and added some
Ice Cube Jewels from Lucy's Cards to finish it off!

I thought it turned out pretty cute!

The inside has the sentiment from the same 
Lawn Fawn Stamp set and it says
Hope your Christmas (Jingle Bell) Rocks!
Simply FUN!

Have a FANTASTIC Weekend Everyone!
See ya on Monday!!!

From one Chick to Another....

Hello & Happy Wednesday Crafty Friends!
Today I've got a super quick post since
I've got lots to do before my Spring Break Starts!

I thought I would share a Sweet Easter Card
that I made over the weekend...

This turned out sooo cute! I just LOVE it!

I colored that sweet little chick last year, it's in my
large pile of colored images and I pulled out my
Scrappy Mom Stamp Set called (Paint the Town)

And I just used some Distress Oxides in
Squeezed Lemon, Worn Lipstick, Peacock Feather,
& Wilted Violet
Not only do these Oxides blend really well together
but they stamp just as well too!!!

I just stamped those paint swooshes on to a piece
of 110lb. White Recollections paper and then
Stamped the sentiment in Black Ink

Then used my Heat tool to make sure it
was completely dry before running it through my Big Shot
with a Wonky Stitch Die

I adhered it to some Fun Foam then adhered it
to my Purple Cardbase - I added some
Lucy's Cards Ice Cube Jewels and It was done!

The Sentiment & adorable Chick stamp are from
the Pink & Main Stamp Set called (Easter Peeps)
Colored on some Spectrum Noir Ultra Paper using
my Spectrum Noir Markers

Thanks for stopping by!

Rondelle Birthday....

Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends!
I hope your week is off to a good start!
Mine certainly is since Spring Break
Starts next week! YAY!! I get a week off
and the weather is supposed to be in the 70's!

So for me... Friday can't come Fast Enough!!!
In the meantime... I thought I would share a 
lovely Birthday Card I made for another Teacher at School.

I'm using the Digital Prima Paper Collection called Rondelle
I just love the Peaches & Yellows in this collection -

I used a Stitched Rectangle die (3 3/4x5) and I used 
a WeRMemory Corner Rounder punch (1/4") - 
I wanted my sentiment to be elegant and Pop, 
so I'm using the Jaded Blossom (Simple Sayings) stamp that
I heat embossed in Fine White Embossing Powder
Then die cut out with a Banner die

I added some Fun Foam for Dimension and the
yellow flower is popped up with some dimension as well
I also wanted a little Sparkle... So I sprayed some of my
Sheer Shimmer Sparkle spray on the flowers & Leaves

Thanks for stopping by!
