Happy Belated Halloween!

 Good morning friends!  OMG it's been 2 months since I've posted, what a bad blogger.  My event is next weekend and I've just been OUT STRAIGHT preparing for it - if you'd like to check it out, you can see our website here:  This is our (my husband and I) fifth year running a local cannabis competition and tradeshow at the convention center in Worcester, MA.  It's a ton of work but even more fun!  These are the stickers I had made for our event this year:

So anyway - today I'd like to share a few cards I made for Halloween and a Halloween birthday, and this first one (image by Sami Stamps) I'd like to enter into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Any Holiday Occasion

Twisted Circus

I was SUPER excited to see a challenge with an actual THEME posted this week!  Thank you to The Sisterhood of Crafters for coming up with the fun Circus Theme challenge this week!  Having a theme helps spark my creativity.  Here's my take on it:

LOVE Flamingo Baby

 Well hello there!  I can't believe it's been a month since my last blog post - what a busy Summer!  We are hard at work getting ready for our 5th anniversary of The Harvest Cup, the cannabis competition and tradeshow that my husband and I own/run in Worcester, Massachusetts!  Check it out, it's a lot of fun even if you're NOT into cannabis!  We have artists and non-profits, speakers, vendors, all kinds of cool stuff.

Anyway, today I have a cute card that I made for my grandbaby Raerae, who loves flamingos:

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:

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:
