This is another one of Simply Betty's new release, isn't he just precious. Not sure yet if I like how it turned out or not yet.. I am NOT used to doing many "BOY" cards! I struggle with how to keep them BOYISH without being "DULL" :-)

Mason, with his Life size train

Well Simply Betty had her new release today on Digi stamps and that changed up all my afternoon plans! :-) I got all her new ones and then of course I had to go get PAPER to be able to work with them this weekend. While I was there I found this Christmas paper that I thought would look good with Mason's Christmas pictures. OF COURSE that little boy with the gifts is a SIMPLY BETTY digi stamp...  and he looks perfect on this page! Mason's Gift from Santa was this LIFE SIZE Train, so since it was his gift, it all went together really well.... Didn't want the page to "GIRLY".. LOL .. Have to get some of these pages caught up as I am getting WAY behind on my layouts! Mason will turn 2 tomorrow so we will go down to his B-day party and then I will have those pic's to get done also! :-) Just wanted to remind everyone that digi's don't HAVE To be on cards, they can go on ANYTHING!!!

DT Monday, Karber Stamps

It's Monday Morning, wind is just a blowing here STILL.... yesterday morning we lost power due to the wind and tree limbs down on lines... power didn't come back on till around 3 in the afternoon and that means I couldn't do my hair until then....not a very happy camper...
But as I have gotten up this morning to POWER I am just THRILLED!

Monday also means I get to show you another WONDERFUL digi stamp from Karber ..
This week for my card I chose Cocktel Denny, I think she is just AWESOME and very ELEGANT, so I thought the card needed to match her. I cropped her so I had a closer version of her, found this AWESOME paper from Little Yellow Bicycle (SWOON).. isn't it just perfect for her? She just HAD to have some pearls to set her off and then I got out my new spellbinder flower dies and made each of the 3 different sizes.. down in the center of each I added a pearl.

you can get Cocktel Denny here :
Got to Karber Digital stamps here:
And PLEASE go check out what the rest of the Desgn Team has come up with for this week here
I hope you have an awesome week, mine will be very busy getting things ready for my in law's 50th Wedding Anniversary party and our Anniversary Cricut Swarm....

Bride & Groom Dancing

My Mother and Father in law are getting ready to celebrate there 50th Wedding Anniversary on the 21st. We have been planning their party and I needed to get them a card made. so I started hunting...found this AWESOME Bride & Groom at decided that it would be PERFECT for what I had in mind... So I got it printed out, then got out my nestabilities and I thought this new oval would be perfect for setting it off. Went and got some black glitter paper and of course had to get a damask pattern paper as that is what we are using at the party for our tablecloths and everything..Everything is going to be black, white and red so...of course that is what I needed to stick with.... then I got my pearls out and some tulle instead of just normal ribbon. Hope they will like the card

Good Morning, I hope you all had a wonderful Easter with your family / friends / kids and or Grandchildren. We had our Grand-babies Elliana and Mason for the weekend and had a GREAT time with them..was sad to see them go back home yesterday...but we colored Easter eggs, hid them, played with with Stewie, played with toys.. they should have slept well last night, I know we did. LOL

Well it is Monday and that means another AWESOME KARBER digi stamp! For this week I chose "APPLE GIRL" and you can purchase her here :
I started with coloring my apple girl, found this AWESOME Paper which is the Jillibean Soup Apple Cheddar Collection
I took my Circle Nestabilities and figured out which size would fit best around her on my card, then placed it exactly where I wanted it on my card and rolled it through. I already had my paper adhered to the card so everything would cut through at one time. Then I picked which paper I wanted to cut my frame out with and place the same circle I used to cut through the card in the center of which one I wanted to be my frame. I placed a small piece of tape across the top edge to keep the two of them connected together so they would not move till the frame was cut. I placed pop dots UNDER the edge of the frame to give some dimension. "THE APPLE OF MY EYE" was on the backside of one of the papers in the set and I thought it would be PERFECT... I didn't have any flowers the exact color I wanted to off to my Copic Markers I went. Picked out the same Colors I used on my Apple girl and added some yellow from the paper to brighten it all up! The swirl flourish is from Make IT Crafty and is chipboard, I also sprayed it and then added some diamond stickle. I opened up my card and put on the background paper, placed my circle and I put my Apple girl INSIDE the card...

Don't forget to go check out the Karber Blog to see what the other DT Member have done and also go check out the digi stamps:
and don't forget about the rubber and clear stamps at : they are all amazing....
I hope you all have a GREAT Week!

Karber DT Monday..

Hope you all had a wonderful Weekend... WOW it is April already! Spent the weekend trying to get things organized for Easter coming up for my Grandbabies and for my in law's 50th Wedding Anniversary party...
Well for this week I picked this amazing Bella Bride, as it will soon be wedding season....Isn't she just an AMAZING Digi Stamp? I just LOVE her!!! you can get her at this link...
make sure to go check out what the other DT did for this week!
I cropped my Bella Bride digi stamp to have her closer up...
I found some gorgeous, flourish glitter paper to use as the Background and decided to stay with basic colors in cardstock for the rest! Sprayed my flowers to match my cardstock and used some tiny butterflies that had punched out from a border punch. Used stickle to give some glitter to the butterflies.. and added some sheer white ribbon. Used my nestabilites for my base of Bella..

Hope you like her, have a great day!
