(anything but a card) This cute little mouse image is called "Hang in there"- This could be used so many ways to give someone a "get well"- but - with it being Summer I thought a quick cute little gift bag or party favor would come in handy!

Tag Tuesday and the Cuttlebug spot=embossed tags

Okay- Well I TOTALLY love tags and never get time to make them as much as I want to! I stalk the Tag Tuesday ( Kard Krazy) site and love all that I see there! Also- since I LOVE my CB (cuttlebug spot challenge blog) and embossing , I HAD to do these challenges!! I used some paper scraps from BG and 7 Gypsies and embossed a few with my cb folder. Then, I got to use my NEW CB folder= Caged Bird and cut out a couple. Tag Tuesday is asking to use a postage stamp - these I had just picked up at the local antique mall (German stamps). NOW best of all- I got these VERY COOL stamp images from Estelle at the STAMPSMITH...Arnt they the coolest?? he he he! They are called "Balancing Act". I colored them just a little with my Copics ofcourse! The sentiment is computer generated! TFL! :)

S2G Thurs challenge with a twist...Pink

The challenge this week for Shirley's 2 Girls is to use the color Pink on your card. Since we are thinking babies and brides this month- I colored up this sweet image called "Mother knows Best". She is sitting on some very old dp I had that I LOVE...not sure but I think it is from Provo Craft. I also got to use a my new MS punch- Optic Dot and I sure like it alot. I did a little scoring on the dp and punched out the little tab. Funny cuz this image makes me think of me pregnant with my first born. I read every thing I could...made all his baby food and read to him ALL the time...yes..everything for this boy was only theeee best...ha ha! " Earth mother"...that was me...well..things kinda changed with the 4th kid! We wont "go there"...but he is a good kid..I will leave it there.... :) Get over to the challenge blog and check out the cute cards by the dt- maybe it is time for you to win some candy! tfl!
