Cards and Kids and Colorful Skulls

Hi there - whatcha all up to this weekend?  I've got some cleaning and laundry to do, and today I'm making spaghetti sauce and eggplant parmesan.  Yum.  I love cooking!  This morning, I'm using the leftover carnitas meat to make breakfast burritos.  So good!

Today we have a couple of reminder posts for you - first up at:

Stop by the blog to see the rest of the DT's interpretations of this fun theme and to play along with us!

Our next reminder post is at:

I am also entering this into the:


I used used O' Little Fireman, colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and I also paper-pieced his clothes and hat.  Paper is some digi paper I found from Kindred Creations, and I added some little fireman brads from my stash.  Sentiment is from TLC Creations.

And last for today is my card for the:

I used the skull from the Sweet & Toxic set, stamped in rainbow overlapping colors, along with some fun printable paper I found online.  I added some red rickrack and then tied a turquoise ribbon and a lime green stitched ribbon around it. Peace.


  1. My! You are busy! I really like your fireman and the sentiment is just perfect. I really like your Royal Flush as I am a card player (both kinds), just not poker as I overbid.

    Your polka dot background paper is gorgeous.

  2. Three great cards Jenn...especially love the rainbow skulls is so colorful! Have a great weekend!

  3. Wow! You have been really busy Jenn. I am hoping to get back on my feet and get my creative MOJO going soon. Wonderful projects!



  4. OMG, look at your AFA creation....I LOVE IT and all the rainbow skulls!

    Your ATC is perfect too! After I made mine I saw all kinds of stamps and images that would have been perfect for the challenge...but really, who can resist 007?!! I didn't have the heart to change it!

    Have fun cooking, your meals sound delicous!

  8. Jenn - this is a beautiful card - my hero wears a hat too - he is a retired policeman - I am here to let you know that Chriss is sorry she did not get her card uploaded on Saturday for the challenge - but she is doing great now that she knows the reason - I explained it to her - she has so much inside her brain that she could not get to the area that told her to get her card uploaded - she will be sure to be on time for the next challenge - enjoy your day!

  9. I want to come to your house to eat. 'K?
