Baby Shower Card and Winner

BABY CARD AND SOME WINNERS!I sill have more Baby Shower goodies to show you from the other days POST.  Of course I made a card with matching paper to the Wall Decor hanging I made.  I kept the card a 5x5 card and layered with the pinks.  The card does match "another" thing I made for the Nursery but you'll have to wait to see that post. 
I used grunge board and my Big Die Word Play for the "BABY".  Then cut again with brown card stock to create a shadow.  Using some white crackle paint I painted the letters.  The thicker the paint the more crack you get.
I stamped Scrappy Moms Stamps Special Delivery set, Sweet Beginnings for the sentiment.  I added a postage stamp for fun.
I inked all the paper and letters with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
Here is my Wall Hanging I made with matching paper.  Click HERE to see more photo's if you missed it.
I did not attend the Shower.  However, I understand they loved it.
Thanks to everyone that left me a comment o…

Mid Summer GIVEAWAY on CNS!!!!!

"Oh Baby" Nursery Decor and GIVEAWAY!!!!
I don't even remember the last time I did a Giveaway?  And you all keep coming back!  Me so lucky;)  But hey, it's time for a MID SUMMER GIVEAWAY!!!!  I have a packed summer and I want to say thanks for coming around, even when I'm not posting as often as I would like.  Details are after the Nursery Decor project!
***I am giving away 20 Digi's in 2 sets of 10 and 1 Cricut Cart.  That's 3 winners!***

My SIL's nephew is having a baby and I wanted to send a gift for the nursery.  I found out the  baby's colours and got to work!  Charlotte is due next month and I am so excited for them.  So since the baby shower is on the weekend I headed out to Michaels and my LSS for some supplies!

I picked up one large wooden letter (C) from Michaels.  I went to my LSS and found this adorable Carta Bella paper, Paris Girl. I wanted both images on the letter so when I traced out the "C" I was sure to trace the images…

Many Tags and Many Thanks

Many Thanks is Scrappy Moms Stamps newest stamp release.  This set is perfect for all those Thank You cards you haven't made yet!  I went really simple and plain for this card.  Something I feel I struggle with.  I always want to add, add, add!  I found a cute card on PINTEREST that inspired this.  Click HERE to check out the one I pinned.

I added some hemp twine and brads to the card.  I kept the card and tags in Kraft paper to keep it all sleakish (I love adding "ish" to my words).  I embossed each time I stamped.  the stamp "for being there" is on 1 stamp and I coloured each word with my marker then embossed.
I simply stamped the inside of the card with TH Black Soot ink.
I then used a TH embossing folder...the one with all the sewing stitches. Since I don't sew this is a good option for me.
Check out this great set and add it to your collection.  You can never go wrong with a good thank you set!  Click HERE to check out this set and lots more!

Thanks f…

TTC Blast from the Past

Scrappy Moms Stamps just released "Blast from the Past" stamp set and this weeks challenge is "RETRO"!  I just got these stamps (the mail is painfully slow) and so I quickly popped into my craft room and made a fun card.  The mustache is too great and I knew I had to use it!
I used my Umbrella Man die in the matching Basic Grey to the DP.  I wanted him to be subtle so the "stash" would pop!  I stamped and embossed the hand.  Seriously love this stamp!  Oops...I'm impatient and took photo's before my glossy accents dried on the mustache.
Also from SMS Blast from the Past is the sentiment I stamped on the inside, "You're Otta Sight".
I stamped and punched "Respect the Mustache!"  I folded the Umbrella Man's leg back as if he's kicking it back.  Just to make him a little more whimsical.
Check out the NEW Blast from the Past and Many Thanks from SMS!  ClickHERE...


I'm still here and running late helping my FABULOUS DT Scrappy Moms Stamps announce "Blast from the Past" and "Many Thanks".  These awesome stamps released on Friday and are ready to be stamped.  Mine just arrived and I have yet to get ink on them!  But I will be playing with them this week! Love the Boler and Mustache on this set!

You can never have to many "thank you" stamps!  I have plans for these!
I've been in Yellowstone/Grand Teton for the past 10 days and we had a blast!  We saw thermal pools, wildflowers, grizzly's, buffalo and so many furry animals! 
The Grand Prismatic Pool, Yellowstone.

My First Canvas

Sympathy Canvas Sometimes a Sympathy card just doesn't seem like enough.  At least that's how it was for me when my Grandmother passed a couple weeks ago.  I felt like I needed to do more for my Mom now that both of her parents are gone.  Instead of planning my trip home to say my final good-bye's, I was  planning this.  I really had to put myself in a different place to create this with my box of tissues at hand.  I spent all my summers with my Grandma, just the 2 of us.  Although she was hard to get along with she was my grand and I loved her.  I found this 12x12 canvas at my LSS.  I felt I wanted to do a canvas but having never made one I didn't know where to go once I had the canvas.  But then I saw the new TH Distressed Doily die and it all kinda fell into place.

I started with my favorite photo of my grandss on their wedding day, she was about 17 and he was about 20.  I changed the black and white photo to sepia and printed it out on normal printer paper.  I then…
