SUO...Happy Birthday


Happy Tuesday Peeps!!

It is time for a new challenge at  

This time we are all about BIRTHDAYS!!

I have a co-worker/friend whose birthday is the 3rd of July and
I wanted to make her a Patriotic Themed Birthday card.
She loves all things Americana like me, so I went about figuring out
what to use to make my card.

I decided to make my card with red and blue flowers, shocker, I know..lol!!

I am using a flower stamp from the Inspiring Iris set.
I stamped the three with Black Stazon ink and colored with
Real Red and Night of Navy ink pads.


I fussy cut them out and added them to my die cut circle with dimensionals.
My sentiment is from the retired All that You Are stamp set.

The base of my card is Night of Navy card stock.
I followed that with a piece of Whisper White.

Next I used a piece of Real Red that I embossed with the Corrugated EF.

My DSP is from the Everything is Rosy Product Suite.





I cut a piece of Night of Navy card stock and
ran it through my Big Shot using an embossing die in the
Stitched Nested Label dies and added it across the
card between the embossed red and he DSP.
I finished up my card with a few little red rhinestones.

Be sure to go over to the SUO Challenge Blog and join in
the Birthday Challenge, we would love to see you creations in our gallery.

Thanks for stopping by!

Ride With Me



Happy Sunday Peeps!!


Today I am sharing a couple of fun little trucks I made with 
the Ride With Me stamp Bundle.

I love these little trucks and I was 
super excited when I saw this Bundle in the new
catalog. 

I got this on my first order and immediately made a truck when my order
arrived. My first one was a bit disheartening, not hard but
definitely a bit fussy putting it all together.
I sit aside and hadn't tried again til yesterday. I am glad I gave it a 
go again this time it came together much better for me. Still a bit tedious to put ttogether
but I absolutely LOVE the outcome.


I made these using Real Red and Pacific Point, for the 4th of July.

The balloons are a stamp that come with this set and are so cute. 

I colored them with the same colors and left a few plain white for my 
Red, White and Blue theme.

Here they are lined up for the 4th of July parade...


Thank you for sopping by!
