Best Fishes Card

This card really makes me laugh. I told a friend I would make her a fun card to give away to someone. I hadn't used the Smiley Card cartridge yet so I picked out this funny kissey fish. The fish was cut at 4.5 inches wide.  I cuttlebugged the light blue background paper as well as one part of the fish. I stickled the lips with diamond stickles, eyeliner with black diamond and added a little sparkle to the fins with a light blue.  The fish was attached with a action wobble and the MUAH was popped up with small pop dots.  The inside sentiment is from My Pink Stampers line of stamps called More Punnylicious.  I love this card because it makes me laugh!!

Be sure to leave me a message on my previous 100+ Followers Giveaway post. I will be selecting a random winner from the comments in a couple of days!!

As a special thank you to the 100+ followers on my blog, I am giving away one of my favorite Cricut cartridges.....PAISLEY!!! I fell in love with this cartridge when I first saw the little zebra driving the car. And if you know me at all, I have loved paisleys since I was in grade school (I think it's because I love Prince).  So I have a brand new, in the clamshell Paisley cartridge to give away to one of my followers.

Doggone Cute Card!

A friend asked me if I would make her a card for her vet. Her dog has been under the weather and her veterinarian has been really gone out of her way to help them out. I was excited to use my FAVORITE cartridge, Create a Critter for this card. While browsing some blogs during the weekend I came across a "Love Your Pet" blog hop at Scrapbookaholic by Abby. Did you know that the month of April is the "month against animal cruelty" and ASPCA encourages to "Go Orange" to show your support. So this was my inspiration for her card. I am submitting this card for Abby's challenge #3.

I used a brown base cut at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. The orange background paper is cut at 4 x 5 1/4 and the dog was cut at 3 1/2. I tied a little orange ribbon around the background paper and of course I added a little bling with my iRock on her personalized collar and word Ruff. I added Black Diamond stickles to her eyes and nose and donned her with a purple hair bow to match her purple collar. The inside sentiment comes from my newest stamp set Fabulous Phrases from none other than My Pink Stamper.

Thanks for lookin!!!

Also, it looks like I will be doing a giveaway real soon to celebrate 100 followers. As of today I am just one away!! Yippee!!

My Pink Stamper Birthday Challenge - Karli turns 4!!!

My gal, Robyn, over at had a blog hop this weekend with a birthday theme. I never posted any of my daughter, Karli's 4th birthday pics, so even though I didn't do the banner and goodie bags over the weekend, my challenge was to get them up on my blog for my friends to see!! So here it is!!

I made this adorable banner using the Mini-Monograms cartridge. Poor cartridge hadn't been used in forever, but it was perfect for her ladybug themed birthday party!! I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More for the popcorn box to hold party favors and used Paisley for the ladybugs.
