Birthday Girl


Birthday Girl - no name.jpg

My friend needed a birthday card for her granddaughter’s 6th birthday. We looked through images and she liked this image from Free Dearie Dolls. The original image had different colored dress and hair on the girl. I emailed Mary Ellen and asked if she could put straight red hair on the girl and she did! Then I colored the dress and hat in Photoshop. The other part of the image was pre-colored by Mary Ellen. I used the sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch for my inspiration.

The granddaughter’s name was below the image (I whited out most of it)

Poppy Mouse – Thanks


Thanks Mouse

So I bought this image several months ago to make a thank you card for some co-workers that saved my butt! They re-arranged their schedule to help me and I wanted to let them know how much I appreciated them. Well life got in the way and I hadn’t been able to make the card till tonight. I saw the challenge at Cute Card Thursday – One Word Sentiment. The challenge is being sponsored by Di’s Digi Stamps and this is one of her digital stamps so I had to play along. I thought sketch #2 at February Card Sketch Challenge @ would be perfect for this. I had the hardest time finding paper that I liked and could make it work with this sketch. I’m happy with the outcome! This also fits the Photo Inspiration Category at the February Inspirational Card Challenge @

Original sketch is a Skipping Stones Design. Found it here:

Rockin around the Christmas Tree

Rockin Around Christmas Tree

I had a request for a guitar themed Christmas card. I found this SVG/digital stamp file. The original has the “as” partial on the guitar. Any way the way the guitar was in my cutting program there were way to many little pieces. So I asked my husband to separate guitar so I could just print it as one piece and add it to the cut out letters. Since all those letters were cut on the cricut I only made one card. If I can figure out how to do differently I make more!

I have been studying for a promotion at work for the past 3-4 months so I only crafted orders that had to be done. I didn’t even have time to post them. So I hope to do that as life is finally calming down and going back to normal.

I made a birthday card for a dear friend of mine. I’m late on making it and sending it as time has not been on my side. Better late then never…I did text her on her birthday so I didn’t forget! I showed it to a customer and he ordered one for a friend of his that loves to garden.

Watercolor flowers

I used Stella Says Sketch Challenge #510 for my inspiration.

1) October 2017 Inspirational Card Challenge @ – Product Category – wood. The image has a wood crate and then I used a wood embossing folder on the kraft piece.

Cabin with chair


Cabin with chair

I had an order for a lady that works in NY but has a cabin she lives in when not working. She loves to go to cabin and enjoy nature. So when I found The Great Outdoors Kit (or cheaper version is Camping Kids) at Imagine That Digi Shop I knew it would be perfect. I added an extra tree to my scene. Pop dotted the fire wood stack, chair and the knobs sticking out on the actually cabin to make it feel more real. I still haven’t quiet figured out how to make my grass longer than the die without leaving that little mark…if you know the secret please do tell. The lady loved it and has it displayed on her work desk to reminder her of “cabin life”.
