Aloha Hello Kitty Wall Hanging

Sorry it's been awhile since I posted a project. I ran out to Gettysburg, PA for a quick trip and have been catching up on the house ever since I got back.

It's nice to be able to work on some paper projects again. I modified this Hello Kitty cut so she'd be an Aloha HK complete with surfboard and hibiscus flower. She's large...approximately 12" and hangs in my hobby room. The cartridges used for this project two of my favorites...Life Is A Beach and Hello Kitty!

This project is being entered in Scrappy Mom's Terrific Tuesday Life's A Beach Challenge!

Hope you enjoy it and are enjoying your weekend.

Part of the Link Up Party is to post a pic that is your favorite from your blog. I have to say that this Weather Girl card from Lettering Delights has to be my favorite project. I had fun weaving paper to make the large flower behind her.

Thanks for stopping by! If you feel like it, please leave a comment and become a follower! I read all the comments and appreciate them!

Inky Antics Honey Pop Rubber Stamps

When I first saw these stamps Inky Antics stamps in an ad awhile back, I thought I didn't need them. Visiting my local craft shop, I noticed that they were in stock. There was a display board full of honey pop cards and they were soooo cute that I couldn't resist!!

The items you need are the rubber stamps and the Honey Pop paper which comes in several colors to choose from. The card was pretty simple to assemble. You just have to remember that you need to score a channel in the center to accomodate the thickness of the honey pop paper.

I think it came out super cute! I'll be making more of these!!

Happy Birthday Card

Here's a Birthday Card created using only the colors pink, green, and black. Despite the fact that I've been battling a headache today, I've been trying to challenge myself to make some projects!

This is being entered in My Pink Stampers NSBD Challenge #11 - Use the above colors

The sentiment is from Hero Arts. Thanks for stopping by!

Chihuahua Birthday Card

Here's a birthday card I made using my Imagine. This could have been a Valentine's card but my sister loves Chihuahuas but I thought it would make the perfect birthday card for her, instead!

All the background papers were printed from the Imagine and the die cut is from Four Legged Friends.

This project is being entered in My Pink Stamper's NSBD Challenge #10 - Layout or card with a pet

Hope you like it! Comments are always appreciated!

Father's Day Card

This Cricut car die-cut was appropriate for a Father's Day card I wanted to make for my husband's dad. Quite a few years ago, he built a car from a kit and painted it metal-flake red. I hope he likes the card and it takes him down memory lane!

I'm entering this in My Pink Stamper's NSBD Challenge #9 - Use Glitz, Glam and Glitter

Glitter paper is from Doodlebug and the stamped sentiment is from Inkadinkado. Hope you like this simple but snazzy card!

Scrapbook Layout

I think I've set a couple of personal records today. #1 Projects finished and #2 First Scrapbook layout in years!! I guess NSBD is good inspiration!

This is for Pink Stampers Challenge #7 - Create a scrapbook layout

It was a pretty simple project which I am usually not known for! Let me know what you think!

Another Mother's Day Card

Just finished this quick Mother's Day Card. The saying inside is of course "From your little stinker!" I love this skunk! He's one of my favorite images from Create A Critter. The paper used is actually the cover sheet of the Summertime Echo Park Paper Pack. It was a quick way to create the background! I believe the saying is an old Hero Arts rubber stamp.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

My Pink Stamper - NSB Day Challenge #4 - Mother's Day Theme
More Than Favors - Wacky Wednesday #37 Mother's Day Theme
My Craft Spot - Monday Challenge #6 - We Love You Mom!

Hope you like the card! Thanks for taking the time if you feel like leaving a comment! I read them all! :)
