Having some fun clowning around.


I hope everyone is having a good night. This one was created for TGF, I took a picture of a circus tent, used it as a template, and this is what I came up with. I had a hard time with the background due to how busy the paper was. I then took Ballerina Anya and made her into a clown. My 3 year old did not like the nose, but I think she looks kind of cute.

Have a great Tuesday,

Farm Fresh Friday Sketch 6


Every time I make a card, my eldest asks if it is for her. She loves mermaids, so I bought Mermaid Anya for her to stamp and color with, and made this card for her too. She felt very special, and the smile was worth a million bucks.

I wanted to use ribbon some how, and this is what I came up with. Check out the sketch challenge over at The Greeting Farm. You can enter their sketch challenge, which is open until Wednesday, September 2, 2009.

Happy Sunday everyone,

Mom's Workshop


My Mother is doing her first workshop and I am helping her come up with some make and takes. This is what I came up with. I left out the stitching and went for the clean line look. I tried something new with the ribbon, and I have not decided if I like it. This layout is from the Stampin Up catalog on page 97. I made some minor changes, but I did leave in the folded up corner on the left edge of the leaf paper. A minor detail that I thought was a really cute look.

Happy Saturday everyone.

Whiff of Joy Challenge #44- CJ's Birthday Card

Thanks to Whiff of Joy for helping me come up with a card for my sister's 15th birthday! I really had fun with this one. The only sad thing is I don't know who the paper or the brad belongs to as it was in my stash from goods bought a long time ago, pre-children. They were screaming to be used, and this is the final outcome.

Have a great Monday, more posts to follow this week.

Aaargh! A Pirates Life for Me!

As promised, here is a picture of the cupcakes I made for Jayme's Party tomorrow. We will set sail on the pirate boat at 11:30am and search for treasure! We hope to make at least one pirate walk the plank. Check out what is in store for us here.

I actually ate one, without the treasure chest on it, and I got an instant sugar headache! The cupcakes have fruit filling in them too, and of course they are chocolate. I can only hope the children eat a couple of pieces of candy in the treasure chest, eat a bit of icing, and then leave the rest. I am not looking forward to the sugar crash! But they were so fun to make, and birthdays only come once a year.

Have a great weekend everyone. I am working on some cards, so hopefully come Monday I will have more posts. I will have to include a post of my girls all dressed up in their costumes. Too fun.

Mojo Monday #99-A card for my sister

My sister turns 13 on August 20th, so I used Mojo Monday sketch #99 for the layout to create her birthday card. This was one of the hardest layouts for me! I love the end result though. Thank goodness she keeps everything because I will have a hard time giving this one away.

Happy Sunday one and all. I am back to work tomorrow, after being off for three weeks, so it will be quite the transition for all of us here.

Have a great week, and I hope to post some more things as it passes by.

Mojo Monday 98

Here is the card I made for my daughter's 3rd birthday. I used Mojo Monday #98 layout for the pattern.

Of course this little girl looks like mine, so I had to use her for the card.

Happy Birthday Jimmer Jam! We love you.
