Doodle Pantry AIMP


There are only 86 days until Christmas.  Can you believe it?  I just thought I'd mention it because one of my friends announced at lunch yesterday that she is done with her shopping.  It just seems unnatural (I say in a jealous voice) But I'm not showing you a Christmas card; I made a card for my SECOND favorite holiday.  Yay, Halloween!

And ... I just noticed that this is the second card I made using this orange paper.  I must REALLY like it.  Yay for being old and forgetful!

But I didn't forget that today is the first of the month.  That means it's time for the monthly Ants in my Pantry Digital Challenge over on the Doodle PantryBlog.  As always, it's an anything goes challenge. Remember, you must use a digital image to win.

I'm using the Doodle Pantry set, Candy Corn Ants COLOR.

I'm also participating in the Mojo Monday sketch.  What a versatile sketch.

SS432: Best Fishes On Your Birthday


Good Morning Peeps.

It's Saturday and that means it's time for another challenge over on the Sketch Saturday blog.  We have a fun new sketch and the return of a favorite sponsor: it's Samantha from Sami Stamps.  Our prize this week is a voucher for $12 to use in the Sami Stamps Etsy shop.

I'm actually using a Christmas stamp for my card.  The image is called Mistletoe Mermaid, but she works beautifully for a Birthday card too.

Please check out the rest of the DT's creations and give them some love. I hope you will give the sketch a try!

(Sigh) Seriously?!!


I was running late this morning.

So I asked the oldest child to wake the youngest.  The next thing I know, I hear shouting.  Apparently the way that he chose to wake his brother was to bounce a large rubber ball on his face.  Really?!!  Raising boys has confirmed my belief that boys are just plain stupid until they are in their 20s.

To commemorate the "Morning of the Bounce" I decided to ink up my runner (get it, because I was "running" late?!!)  Hah!  Anyway, this image is "Don't Sweat It" from Art Impressions.

I'm using the sketch over on the Your Next Stamp blog.  My image is a bit too big to place the sentiment on the side, so I moved it down.  Still works.

SSW2-99 Fresh Brewed Designs


Happy Wednesday!

Time for another sketch challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  This week we are sponsored by Heather from Fresh Brewed Designs.  Heather is offering up three free digis to our winner.  Heather has some super cute digis on her site.  I'm using "Bob" on my card.  Isn't he hilarious?

I made my card for the love of my life.  The inside of my card says, "Just kidding ... there are sharks in there"  He will love it since he knows that my biggest fears are sharks and spiders ... and maybe snakes.

Hope to see you join in the fun.

Gerda Steiner: September

Happy Fall!!

Get it, it's Autumn and this little piggy is falling?!!  OK, I thought it was hilarious.  So funny that I actually put that inside the card.  I'm sure that whichever family member gets this will groan at my silly pun!

Using the progressive image from Gerda Steiner.  Since I'm making a card with her darling When Pig's Fly image, I will get next month's image for free.  Yippee!

I'm also using Try Stampin' On Tuesday's sketch.  It's a fun one.

TMS 370: Booos!!


Making my first Halloween card of the season.

I'm ignoring all the cleaning projects that I need to get done today (I need to bake too), and instead I'm coloring.  I wanted to play with my newest AI stamp: Old Bat.  Isn't she a riot?!!

I'm using the sketch over on the Tuesday Morning Sketches site.  It's a fun one too.

DP: Pile it On!!

 Happy Sunday!!

Today is my BIL's birthday: Happy Birthday Steve!  And in addition to THAT amazing thing, it's also a day where Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the Pile It On blog.  Their theme this week is Autumn/Fall.

I tried to keep my card CAS so that Laurie's cute image would really shine.  I'm using Nut Costume Ants.  Aren't they silly?  Why don't you join in the fun this week?
