A Turtle-riffic Birthday!


Turtle-riffic Birthday

Still got this cold but have a little more energy today so since it is the LAST day to enter Deedee’s Digi of the Month challenge I dragged by bottom into my scraproom and came up with this! Not bad for having to blow your nose every 5 min!

I did a mixture of using the pre-colored digi (the base of the turtle) but then colored the shell and balloon in photoshop and glued them on top of the base. Then I printed the hat out on red cardstock and cut it out.


1) Deedee’s Digi of the Month – Make a project with the stamp provided and next month’s image will be FREE!

2) March Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites Category – Use a sketch or card you have saved in your favorites as inspiration. I used Sketch Saturday Sketch #294.

3) Simply Create Too Challenge #56 – Shop in your stash. This is my 2nd entry…as I said I need to “shop in my stash” a lot!! Everything from my scrap drawers except for the green diamond paper…but I bought the pack last year sometime. The punches had forever!

4) Seize the Birthday Challenge – Anything goes – no topping this week. This is my 2nd entry.

5) Card Makin Mamas Challenge #81 – stack it up! 3 layers or more.

I have two new stamps to show you since it is June’s Release Day of some very cool digital images at Clearly Digi Stamps!

First with the sun out nice and bright lately this digital stamp – Summer Fun will come in handy.


I found the saying on the internet and thought it was perfect!! This card took on a retro look all on its own….that wasn’t planned!! I love how this card turned out.

I used the sketch from Seize the Birthday #18 Sketch



1) June Card Challenge on scrapbook.com – Theme category – summer.

Now with lots of times on their hands it is time to let the kids imaginations run wild with Make Believe fun!

My husband designed this set for all the kids that dress up and play!

Encourage someone to use their imagination with this Make Believe Digital Image.


I made mine a birthday card! I just love how fun and colorful this little mermaid is.



1) June Card Challenge @ scrapbook.com – Sketch Challenge – they picked MOJO Monday Sketch 238

Digital Stamp Day at Clear Dollar Stamps!


Yep, it is the 15th of the month so it is time to release some really cute images that I’m sure you will love as much as I do!

For my first card I used Tulip Wreath Digital Image

As soon as I saw the stamp my head started swarming with all the different card ideals I could do with this. I actually have another one I would like to try soon if I could ever find the time. This card was inspired by Laura Bassen at CASE Study Challenge….. check out her amazing inspirational piece that was the focus of Challenge #80. This was also HEAVILY inspired by my friend Stephanie!! I’m so glad God brought us together. She challenges me and inspires me ALL the time and she still isn’t tired of me yet!! Thanks Stephanie!!

You can’t tell but the flowers are pop dotted off the white cardstock to give them more dimension in real life!

My second card I used Friend in Need Digital Image

I decided to make this a Congratulations type of card. The inside sentiment is “Follow Your Dreams (they know the way)” which I got from Ginger’s House (Jan 6, 2012 post) I love her word art and she also cracks me up with her funny stories! She has the gift of writing that is for sure. Check it out….and if you want a funny store read the March 12, 2012 entry but I must warn you it WILL CAUSE YOU TO LAUGH OUT LOUD!!!

I was struggling with a design for the card. So I went to Splitcoast Stampers and found the perfect inspiration at  bmbfield gallery  Check it out super cute card! Thanks for the inspiration.

There is a TON of CUTE releases so check them out at Clear Dollar Stamps!
