Birthday Tree Party - Rubbernecker Stamps

Hi there and I hope all is well with you.  Good here as long as I stay in the house... man, it is cold, cold, cold!  I don't even stick my nose out the door when it's like this but having said that, it's hard to believe that there are many places in the USA which are colder right now so stay warm people!
I love this stamp and think it's perfect for a child's party invitation, new baby, Happy Birthday... it works for so many occasions.  I'm quite happy with how it turned out but was surprised at how long it took to colour... there's a surprising amount of detail to it.
Be sure to check out the Rubbernecker Stamps blog for tons of inspiration and also the  Rubbernecker Facebook Page.  There is also a Facebook Fan Page with lots of inspiration, updates on sales & product and a great place to post your Rubbernecker Stamps creations.

Love Never Fails - High Hopes Stamps

Tell me... where on earth did January go?  It seems like I blinked and it was gone but I guess that also means winter is flying by which makes me happy.
Anyway, I have some exciting news to share with you.  I was lucky enough to be asked to join the One Crazy Stamper design team so I will be doing a post featuring her High Hopes stamps every Monday on the One Crazy Stamper blog.  They have over 2,000 super cute stamps which you can find a full listing at the High Hopes Rubber Stamps online store or at One Crazy Stamper.
These name of this cute little turtle stamp is Leo Meets Lana and the sentiment is Love Never Fails.  Valentine's Day is swiftly approaching so I thought this would be a perfect time to use them.

Mermaid - Impression Obsession

Hi there and I hope you are well!  I'm wishing I was either a mermaid or in a warm place where a mermaid might be because as I write this, it is -27 Celcius which is around -16 Farenheit.  That's cold so I won't be sticking my nose out of the house today.
This is an Impression Obsession stamp which I just loved when I saw it so of course I had to buy it.  The sentiment is Impression Obsession also and I thought it was perfect for the image.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.  If it is winter, stay warm.  If you live in a warm place... lucky you!

Fish Group - Rubbernecker Stamps

I received this cute & fun Fish Group stamp from Rubbernecker and think it's a very handsome grouping of fish.  Aren't the expressions on their faces so silly?  The card worked up fairly quickly.  I smooshed Tim Holtz's Distress Inks Broken China and Squeezed Lemonade onto it. The fish were stamped, coloured and then I cut them out.  There is a Fish Group Die set but I didn't have it so used the trusty old scissors but believe me, by fish #2, I was wishing I had the dies.

Looking Good - All Dressed Up Challenge

Hi there!  I hope you had a great Christmas and your new year is off to a roaring good start.  It seems like it's been forever since I sat down and created a card and it actually has been.  November was the last time I made one so it was a little tough finding the mojo to put one together.  It was so busy over Christmas (busy but wonderful) and then I ended up catching a miserable respiratory infection which has knocked me flat out... I am starting to feel better now but holy smokes, having pneumonia in October and again in December has beat the stuffing outta me and I am looking forward to feeling back to my old self!
A new challenge begins today at the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog and the theme is always Anything Goes with the only rule to enter being you use an All Dressed Up image.  If you don't have any, they can be can either be purchased at the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop or by downloading one of several cute freebies offered on the blog.
For my card, I decided to use the Looking Good image which I've had for ages and now seemed like the time to dig it out and use it.
