Baby Beckham

Hi everyone! Just stopping in with another card for the baby! My mom always wants names on her cards and I'm always faced with a long name like Beckham that won't fit on a regular card. So...I decided to make the card a Hallmark card size and then pick up a store bought card just for th i used my new script alpha dies from Papertry. Soooo cute and easy to use. Check it out:

Thanks for stopping in!

Retro Sketch - Baby

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday. So far, mine has been great. Just came from my monthly massage and hubby is grilling brats. Then, in an hour or so I have a Premier jewelry party to go to and then hubby is cooking dinner. This day should be sweet! :)

So, this morning I decided to play along with the Retro Sketches for this week.
I have a baby shower to go to tomorrow, so I thought I would go ahead and create a card for the little one. I still haven't decided whether or not I am going to make a matching bag...I guess that depends on the type of gift I get...which I have yet to do. LOL

Here is the card: 

I have had that stamp set from SU for years and years. It is still my favorite baby set. I think it is called A New Little Someone. JUst love that bunny and the little booties,too! 

Thats all I have...I hope you have a great weekend!

Papertrey Blog Hop!

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog. I've been away for a bit, but managed to find my way back. I am joining in on today's Papertreyink blog hop. The challenge was to use black backgrounds, etc on your card. I decided a guy birthday card was in the works since that's something that's always sneaking up on you. Anyway, here is my card:

10 minutes, eh?

Hello! Last week I started seeing posts about a 10 minute challenge. I thought, " hey, I can do that". I found the challenge on Paulina's blog: Pretty Pink Posh

So, I got my supplies together and had at it. Here is my card: 

Ok, let me just say that 10 minutes comes way quicker than you'd expect. This card took 9 minutes 37 seconds. The longest part was embossing the grey circle. Not sure why I thought that was a good idea, but there it is. :)

I hope you're having a great week! Laters!

My thoughts

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday to ya! I just got to work and grabbed a cup of coffee. You know, work coffee is either good or really bad. I had a cup last week that was heavenly and today I feel like I am drinking liquid mud with cream. Grr.

Anywho, today's card is for two challenges. The first one is the Pink Elephant challenge.

That just looks scrumptious, right? I decided to make a little "thinking of you" card using my Verve "Always on My Mind" set.

This card also uses this week's Mojo Monday Sketch:

I flipped it on its side a little and came up with this:

I just love that Trendy Trees set from Papertrey. Just adorable! Well, have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Make it Monday

Hello! This is my second post for the day. I wanted to play along with this weeks Make it Monday challenge over on Nicole Heady's blog.

This weeks challenge was to emboss in layers. So embossing over embossing. I have a very limited supply of embossing powders, so I knew pretty quickly that it was going to be clear, white, and/or I thought I would try my hand at a sympathy card. Here are my results:

I am also using this card for this weeks JUGS color challenge

I love these colors together! Have a great Monday!
