Safe Journeys ....

Happy Memorial Day!

This is going out to all of the service men and women serving our country every day ... thanks for all that you do and may you have a safe and fast journey home!

This image is a freebie that can be found HERE (free until 5/31). I colored it with my copics and added some brads and twine. It is such a big and awesome image and sooo much fun to color.

Baby Buggy

Cute as a Bug

Here is another great image by Bugaboo. It's called Lily Ladybug- Stroller. I colored it with my copics. I added buttons for wheels and some flowers.

I am entering this in the Green, Pink, and Flower Challenge at Creations by Gill this week.

Red, White, & Blue

No Place Like Home

This Memorial Day please remember all of the armed service men serving for us overseas right now. May they soon find their way back home, safe and sound!

I made this card for the Sweet & Sassy Challenge using their birdhouse. I colored it with copic markers. I added buttons and bakers twine and a sentiment from a retired TAC stamp set.

Hey Cupcake!!!

Large Cupcake!

I love this stamp by Paper Source. I got it a while ago and it is a super cute and fast way to make a card. It is almost the size of a card and you just cut out the panel and throw it on a card ... cute, cute, cute. I also added a little bling (of course)!

I made this for a co-worker of mine ... not too sure what her interests are ... but who doesn't like cupcakes!!!

Hoppy Birthday!!!


I had to make a masculine birthday card and thought this image was cute, but yet masculine! It is from Sweet n' Sassy and is called Fenton Frog.

I colored him with copics and added glossy accents to his eyes. Added some buttons to the card as well.

I am entering this into Sweet n' Sassy's hop for masculine cards.


Congrats Grad!

It's getting to be that time of the year ... The time we put on these cheap (but not "cheap") satin robes and walk across a stage for an important piece of paper.

I remember graduating from Michigan State years ago and we all wore these green robes ... it was SOOO hot that day (maybe 90-100). So our green robes and hats actually turned out to be some marbled green color as sweat poured off of us.
This card was inspired by that memory ... but the robe is not marbled ... LOL!


This is a new image from Just Some Lines called Emo Grad. She was very fun to color and I added a little flower behind the sentiment.

I am entering this over at Meljen's Challenge Blog for graduation cards.

Happy Birthday Dog

I absolutely love this dog wearing a hat by Just Some Lines. I needed to make a birthday card for a woman at work and this was just perfect. She has Golden Doodles and this is probably as close as I was going to get!

I colored him with my copics, added a flower and patterned paper.

Loved and Cherished

Emo Bride and Groom

I hope everyone has enjoyed the Just Some Lines Blog Hop. I know I sure have! And Jehanne has outdone herself with all of the wonderful wedding images that she has created!!

Today I am sharing a card that uses the new Emo Bride and Groom Image. This is a very sweet image for wedding cards, scrapbook pages, invites, just about anything wedding related!

I coplored the cute couple with my copic markers and then cut out the images with a Nestability. I added the stamped setiment, a flower, a button with a floss bow, and ribbon. I love the look of grey and pink ... very sweet for this sweet image!

** Blog Note - I will be posting every other Wednesday on the Just Some Lines Blog (and that is today) ... so hop on over there and check me out too ... I love comments (hint hint)! **
