Welcome Baby

I have this fun baby shower card to share with you all today!
Perfect for a baby boy!
Oh what fun I had coloring him up with my prismacolor markers.
I added some "stitching" with my white pen, and dug through my
wood veneer letters to spell out "welcome baby."
I just adore how it turned out,
and may have to make another one for the shop!
Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!

Lets play a round

Yes, Fathers day is this weekend...
if you are lucky enough to still have your dad,
I hope you get to spend some time with him on this wonderful holiday!
I am one of the lucky ones,
however I am not lucky enough to be physically close enough to get to spend the day with him.

This week has been full of Fathers Day Card orders,
I am going to share this one because I am in love with it!

See how the golf ball  goes around the circle?
Yep, it's "interactive,"
Simple, but effective.
I'm hoping the fabulous lady that ordered it loves it as well!

Oh oh oh AND... I made the map envelope to go with it!  LOVE this!!!

  The best thing about being able to do my own cards
is that I'm not restricted to stamps that are in print,
I can print out my own sentiments and find perfect digi's online!
Last night one of my co-workers requested this card.
I never thought I'd make a card with a mosquito,
or with this sort of sentiment,
thats what's so great about custom orders,
They let me go outside my ho hum distress box!
Yeah, you're reading that right,
the sentiment says Mosquito's are A$$holes.
Obviously this is a personal sentiment, and an inside sort of joke.
I couldn't resist using the googly eyes on the mosquito,
after all don't all mosquito's have googly eyes?
The other product that I got to use is Wink of Stella,
if you haven't found this product yet in your local scrapbook store,
you should be asking them to carry it!
I uses it on the wings, and it gives just a bit of shimmer,
and colors the white papers a bit off-white!
Hope you are having a crafty day!

Birthday card

Well, I've given in, it is officially summer, and my Air conditioner is now running 24 hrs a day!
Yep, the thermometer in my car read at 112 yesterday!
So my goal is to stay cool, and craft!
Yesterday I got some time in, and I made this fun and fab birthday card.

Yeah, I got to use my envelope maker to make a matching envelope even! 
I am SOOOO in love with the envelope maker!
If you love this card as much as I do,
you can own it! 
Check it out in my etsy shop here.
