Have a purr-fect birthday

Hello and welcome! I created today's card so I could play along with Newton's Nook Inky Paws Color Challenge. I used stamps from Newton's Birthday Bash and Newton's Birthday Flutter. I didn't have background paper that suited me so I made my own using a ruler and copic markers!

With Love and Sympathy

I wanted to play along with the latest Lawnscaping Challenge, Try a New Technique. Since I recently added Zig Clean Color Real Brushes to my stash, I thought I would try them out.  Let me first tell you though that when it comes to watercolors, I am hopeless! Try as I might, I'm just never satisfied. To create today's card I used a mask to create the floral focal point and stamped it with Petite Florals and added a butterfly from the Critters in the 'Burbs stamp set and its companion Lawn Cuts. Lastly the sentiment is from Scripty Sayings.  After creating my card, I feel more confident!

Bringing Back Sexy!

I hope you had a terrific Memorial Day weekend, and as a public service announcement, here's a reminder for you that until Labor Day, it's safe to wear your white shoes without fear of being stopped by the fashion police! But now it's time to get back to the business at hand and that business is Bringing Back Sexy! I don't want to do this all by myself but if I must, I will! So all you sexy senior citizens reach for those grannie panties and uplifting bras then wear them with pride! If you really want to mix it up, throw them in a load of wash with a new purple towel!

Buggin Out

Today's card features the Buggin Out stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps! Hopefully by now this fun card is in the hands of the young woman that operated the light board during the show! Without her masterful hand, the actors would have performed in the dark! I say bravo to her for a job very well done!

Apple Blossom Birds

Today's card features Apple Blossom Birds and I am entering it The Digital Stamp of the Month Challenge that From the Heart hosts every month.  I think it is so generous that From the Heart provides me with a free image each month to play in their challenge! Definitely a win-win for me!

Wow! Its hard to believe I haven't posted in over a week but I've been busy enjoying my time at the theater! Now that the show has closed sniff-sniff,  hopefully I can back to my routine of creating and sharing what I've made with you.  For my card today I used the Penny Black clear stamp set Good Day! Seems like time off hasn't changed my love for critters!

Let the Cat Out of the Bag

Hello, hello! I wanted to share the card I made for Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge. Today is the last day to enter the challenge so I better get it done. To create the card I used the fun Newton's Birthday Bash stamp set. In my opinion you cannot have too many cute critters stamps, I love them all and always want more!

Below is a picture of my Newton, a/k/a Henry O' Chestercat! He often helps me make cards but when it comes time to take a picture in my DIY light box, he's always the director!

A Tweet Thank You

Thanks so much for hanging in there with me! Its been crazy busy! My youngest daughter is a cast member of The Addams Family, a ridiculously funny musical and I am helping back stage! But for someone that has a confirmed 8 o'clock bedtime, going to bed after midnight six nights in a row is putting the hurts on me, big time! But I love the theater and I'm so glad to be part of all the magic that can only happen in live theater.

My card today features one of the stamps from Bird Crazy by Tim Holtz.  All of the birds in this set makes me laugh, which is a very healthy exercise!
