More like 10 minutes before the deadline, lol! I've had these two cards done for a whole week, but haven't gotten around to posting them....then I realized the challenge is ending tonight! Anyway, my first card clocked in around 8 minutes. It's just white embossed and then colored with Distress Inks. Super duper easy!

Long time no blog! Oooh, the summer has just flown by! I can't believe the kids go back to school next week. Sad, but I have to admit, they've driven me a bit crazy, especially these last couple weeks :) In any case, I've spent the last few days playing around in my craft room, contemplating submitting some of my work for a DT call. I've never submitted anything (other than online challenges), so I'm a little nervous, but I just may do it. Better make my mind up soon though - my work has to be turned in by tomorrow!!! When I woke this morning, I was surprised to find that Papertrey's MIM was "garlands". I just completed a card yesterday afternoon that totally fit the bill! Here it is....hope you enjoy! Have a great week!!!!

Hi there blog peeps! I've been MIA from my blog for a bit. I've recently had a spurt of creativity, so I have a few cards to post! I think the more stuff you accumulate, the more daunting creating things can be. And you know I like to accumulate, lol!!! I had a chance to make some cards this week, and I focused on my kids' teachers, since the end of school is just three weeks away. I was able to use some honeycomb paper that my son picked out for me for Mother's Day. It's pretty cool stuff! Enjoy!

Today was another challenge day on the PTI blog - this time to create interactive cards. My first card uses a new item called Action Wobble Springs. I ordered them from Amazon last week and I just checked over there to link them for you, but they are out of stock already :( These are really cool. You just peel and stick to the element you want to wobble. The frog on the lily pad looks super cute wobbling around! I highly recommend these little guys if you can find them!
My second card is one I did for my daughter's birthday. This one is a shutter card. Not sure it's exactly interactive, but I think it qualifies. This one took some time.... The ribbon, cardstock and felt flowers are PTI. This one turned out so cute, it was worth the extra time!
Here's a video showing the frog wobbling! Love it!

Today's challenge was to find an inspirational picture on Pinterest and make something based on it! Fun! I'm in the Valentine's spirit, so I thought these cute conversation hearts within a heart were just the thing.
I used some Twinery twine and popped up the negative die cut with foam dimensionals. The hearts were cut from (mostly) PTI paper and stamped with the Tag-It's set....#11 I think? The sentiment is one from the Think Big Favorites series. I had to add a little glitter to the sentiment with a Spica pen, but it doesn't show up well in the picture. Oh well! I keep meaning to get some pictures of my craft room when it's clean to put up here on the blog, but everytime I think of it, the room is a mess again....one of these days!

Well, in a way I am a day late and a dollar short! I started this card for a contest that was running yesterday but didn't get it finished. Todays contest had us use a choice of a few cute digi stamps from the Papertrey design team - and what do you know! Dawn McVey's cute digi matched the colors I chose for "yesterday's" card perfectly. So, the two have been rolled into one! I was really hoping to get more cards done today, but between work, he gym, an ortho appointment for my son and a pediatrician appointment for my daughter, this is the only one I could get done.....thus the super-simple nature of it!!! Wish me luck :)

Here's a card I finally got around to making! I signed up for Online Card Classes' "Clean & Simple Cardmaking" class and this card uses the technique from Day 8 - mirror image stamping. I think it turned out pretty cute! I'll probably give it to the hubs for V-day. I've also been working on my daughter's Valentines for her third grade class. They are turning out cute as well - I'll post a picture when they are all finished.....
