Just Say No to Cannabis Arrests!

Good morning everyone!  Today is my day to post on the Oddball Too Cute to Spook blog and I decided to play with this adorable image called Big Eye 420 Girl with Sentiments/Princess of Pot No. 388.  I love these papers from Jen Hatfield - they go perfectly with this image, don't they?


I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:


I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and some alcohol markers.  I fussy cut the images and then just used the images and papers to create the card, very simple but I love how this one came out.  Hope you are all having a great Summer!  Peace.

Get Over It!

 Well good morning and happy Saturday!  We're on, like, day 42 of rain or something ridiculous like that but at least it doesn't rain alllllll day.... just enough to make it impossible to make any plans at all!  LOL  Luckily, I have card-making to keep me busy when I'm stuck at home! Today is my day to post on the Oddball Too Cute to Spook blog.  I love this color combo - image is from the CCC #151 Life is Yummy set, colored with Blick alcohol markers then fussy-cut and adhered with some dimensional foam dots:

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Love to Craft: July Anything Goes

PolkaDoodles: Anything Goes

Creative Fingers: Anything Goes

Digi ChoosDay: Anything Goes

Real Mermaids Smoke Seaweed!

 Hello friends!  I wanted to pop in quick with a card I made using a members exclusive image from Oddball Art Co., she's colored with Blick alcohol markers and paired with the 420 stamp set and a cannabis leaf die cut from Ink Road Stamps:

I hope you all had a happy & safe 4th of July weekend!  Peace.

Sunny Days!

I spoke too soon.  *sigh*  LOL   Looks like our 4th of July weekend is going to be full of clouds and rain!  That's OK though - we're still going to my mom's to celebrate and I'm sure we will have a fabulous time!

Today I'd like to share a pair of coordinating Summer themed cards I made using the scraps from my cardstock.  The digi images are from All That Scraps (no longer in business unfortunately!).  I colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and some Blick markers. papers are from Doodlebug Designs (my favorite!) and then I added some random stickers and embellishments from my stash: 



I'd like to enter these (if I have to choose one, I'll enter the boy) into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday: Anything Goes

Paper FunDay: Anything Goes (optional: Sparkle/Shine)

Oddball - You Are a Star!!!!

Hello friends - HAPPY SUMMER!  I have been battling anemia for a couple years now, which makes me have a hard time regulating my internal body temperature.  I'm almost always cold.  Unless I'm in the throes of night sweats, which is great fun (ha!).  I am not a huge fan of air conditioning, so I'm really loving the 75-degree weather we've been having the last couple of days! But I'll be ready for the HEAT next weekend, can't celebrate the 4th of July if it's not hot out! LOL   Well, I mean, you CAN, but it's not the same.  We are going to spend the holiday at my parents house, something we haven't done in a long time.  I am trying really hard to take care of myself and not overdo things (something I tend to do), so I'm not hosting a 4th of July party this Summer for the first time in a very long time.  I have mixed feelings about it but I know we'll have a great weekend anyway.

Today is my turn to post on the Oddball Too Cute To Spook blog, and I wanted to get everyone into the spirit for our 4th of July holiday here in the US so I decided to color up my images in red, white, and blue.  I used Big Eye Beauty Whimsical Dreams Sally's Stars #292 and Hand Drawn Stars and Bubbles #343:


I used some fun patriotic papers from Doodlebug Designs and I fussy-cut the image and applied it with dimensional squares so it would "pop".  I added some Rangers Stickles to the stars and bubbles, finished it off with a ribbon tag and a sentiment sticker "you are a star".   I'd like to enter this one into the following challenges:

The Sisterhood of Crafters: Anything Goes

Paper FunDay: Anything Goes

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday: Red, White, or Blue

Hope you are all enjoying some sunshine and fresh air! Peace.

Always Room for S'more!

Hello friends!  Today is my day to post on the Oddball Too Cute To Spook blog, and our theme for this month is SUMMERTIME!  I decided to use the new Digital Creepy Cute S'Mores Collage Sheet #495:  


I wanted the focus to be on this pretty sentiment, so I fussy-cut the S'more image and colored it with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and added some shimmery white Pops of Color liquid to the marshmallow.  Papers are from Doodlebug Designs Inc., along with the little chocolate chip stickers. Topped it off with a ribbon - I love this card!  Hope you are all having a lovely Summer and that you make lots of time for sunshine and S'mores!  Peace.

Alice Screws Up!

Good morning friends!  Well, today I have a card to share that I was super proud of.  I am on the Oddball Art Stamps Design Team and today we are sponsoring the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge blog - the theme is EASEL CARDS  but I misinterpreted it because they had requested the Alice image, so I mistakenly assumed the theme was Alice in Wonderland!  LOL  So anyway, here's my Alice card which SHOULD be an easel card but is not:


I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Love to Craft: Anything Goes

PolkaDoodles: Anything Goes

Paper Funday: Anything Goes with Optional Twist Sparkle/Shine

Happy Little Stampers: Anything Goes with Dies

Papers are from Doodlebug Design, paired with a die cut potion bottle, viewfinder, and heart. I added some gemstone stickers and a ribbon tag to finish it off.  Alice is colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits with a bit of red marker. Peace.
