A Quick Birthday Greeting

Hellooooo!   🙂

My nephew’s birthday was last week.  I thought I’d share a quick little card I made for him.   I don’t have a lot of “young boy-ish” stamps, but after digging through my stash, I decided on this cute koala from Whipper Snapper.

Let’s Party


I recently went through my ridiculous amount of patterned paper, deciding what to keep, what to give away, what to toss.  Within that WSDLPINmess, I found a few pieces of Bella Blvd “Super Stud” (lol) paper that I thought would work well with this little guy.  Nice bright colors without being girly.  🙂

I used more of the striped scraps on the inside and left plenty of room for everyone to sign (and draw silly pictures).

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I’ll be back Saturday morning with a Kraftin’ Kimmie challenge sample.  Have a great day!

Stamps:  Whipper Snapper Designs “Party Koala”; Cornish Heritage Farms “Birthday Bash” (Kim Hughes Collection)  Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black  Cardstock: Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate, Stampers Select White  Patterned Paper: Bella Blvd “Super Stud”  Accessories:  Copic markers (E33, E35, E57, B24, B29, E08, YR23, YG93, YG95, Y0000), Prismacolor pencils, brads, dimensional boosters.  Finished size 4 ¼” x 5 ½”.

Party ’til You Melt!

TGIF!  I’m just popping in quickly before running out the door for an appointment…and I have to hit the Starbucks first.  🙂

I’m still trying to plow through some of my unused stamps.  I’ve had a little pile of Whipper Snapper sitting in front of me for … a while.   (Reminds me of “How long have you been 17?”  “A while.” 🙂 )  

Party ’til You Melt


I thought this little guy was cute, all flattened out on the ground, a little concerned friend on his back.  🙂 

I’ll be back tomorrow morning with a sample for Kraftin’ Kimmie’s weekly challenge.  Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Snow Balls/Jingle Balls

I’ve been playing a bit with some new winter images I recently received.  I liked the sentiment so much on this one, I decided to stamp it twice.  Come on, sing it with me!  (Hee, hee, hee.)

Jingle Balls


These little guys are Jingle Balls from Whipper Snapper Designs.  They have tiny brads for buttons and glassy jingle bells. 

My friend, Joanne, made me buy that border punch so you’ll be seeing a lot of it.  And I used her little buttony bow too.

One final note, all Martha Stewart and Inkadinkado products at Jacksonbelle Embellishments are on sale for 40% off.  Once they’re gone, they’re gone.  Also, with every order placed through November 30th (no matter the size), you will be entered into a drawing for a nice give-away valued at over $100.   (HERE‘s the loot.)

I’ll be back tomorrow (with a Kraftin’ Kimmie card 🙂 ).  Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

Bippity Bopitty Boo to You

Hi everyone!  I have a couple of quick Whipper Snapper Halloween samples I thought I better share before the month gets away from me.  (I can’t believe it’s the end of the month already! Gads!)

Bippity Bopitty Boo


Here I’ve used Chicken Witch.  Anna’s images crack me up.  Really, who else would think to give a chicken a witch hat and a broom? 🙂  The sentiment is from Anna’s Spooky Expressions cling mount set.  The paper is new-ish Pink Paislee from Jacksonbelle Embellishments.

Happy Halloween


This little guy is Moon Balloon Ghost with sentiment from Anna’s Hocus Pocus cling mount set.  The fun Halloween paper is from Basic Grey‘s Eerie paper pad.

I’m gearing up for a very busy next couple of weeks with lots of fun new releases from Kraftin’ Kimmie and My Favorite Things!  I’m really excited about both!   …Beginning Thursday!  🙂   🙂   🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Pink Elephant

Hi everyone!

My post today might be the shortest ever.  I’m feeling better, but have to get the kids ready for picture day.  (I anticipate lots of arguments with one of them…I may have to pay her to wear what I want her to wear.)

Let’s Celebrate


This is Huckabee, one of Whipper Snapper’s newer images.  She was fun (and quick) to color.  I added some simple layers, a bit of stitching and a button.  Done.  🙂  (I like when things come together quickly. That doesn’t happen often for me.)

Ok…off to primp and hopefully not battle.  Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Hocus Pocus

Hi everyone!  It’s almost the weekend!  🙂

Hocus Pocus


This is Whipper Snapper’s Halloween Grocery List.  **giggle**  That’s such a cute name, isn’t it?  I especially like the little spider.  Don’t get me wrong.  I hate spiders.  They can do their thing outside, but I do not want to share my living environment with one (of any size).  Ick.  But this one is cute.  And it’s not real.


After coloring the image, I colored over the crossbones and skull using a clear 3-d glaze pen (and you can see the cute little spider a little better.  🙂 )

The paper is new Pink Paislee from Jacksonbelle Embellishments.  This was the first time I’ve used it and I already know I’ll need more.  It’s gorgeous!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

With Sympathy

Hi everyone!  Last week seemed to be the week of sympathy cards around here.  I made three, and my husband came home from work yesterday asking me to make another.   This is my favorite so far.

With Sympathy


It’s been ages since I watercolored on watercolor paper (or at all).  I had forgotten that patience is required.  Stamp the image.  Wait.  Lay down the first color. Wait.  Add more color…  I prefer the instant gratification of using Copics, but I like the result here.  I really should try it more often. 

I used Anna’s Blossoms and Butterflies and Blooming Expressions by Whipper Snapper.  Such pretty flowers in this set. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!  🙂

Wish You Were Here

Hi everyone!  TGIF!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted some Whipper Snapper, so I have a cute little critter to share today.

Wish You Were Here


This is Swiss Miss.  (I think I colored her more like “Mr. Swiss” but I suppose it could go either way.)  She’s one of the many images from Whipper’s last Fall/Winter release.  

I’ll be posting more cards using Whipper Snapper very soon.   I promise.  🙂

And speaking of “Wish You Were Here,” here’s a little something about me that you probably don’t know.  My absolute favorite song …Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd.  I could listen to this all day long.  🙂

YouTube Preview Image

Ahhhh…… it!  🙂  Unfortunately, this recording is not of the song in its entirety (and yes, it is a very long song but sooo great).   I wish I were THERE.  🙂

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!  And let’s take a moment to remember…

Birthday Rats

Yes, rats.  Eek!  

This is an “older” Whipper Snapper image, but I still love it.  Look at the expressions on their faces.  Hee, hee, hee.  🙂

Have a Great Day


I needed a birthday card for my nephew, Rane.  He turned 13 last week.  I can hardly believe it.   It doesn’t seem all that long ago that he was toddlin’ around with a pacifer in his mouth.

My supply of stamps (which is quite extensive) is sorely lacking in the “teen boy” department.  I hope rats were ok for this year.  (He liked it.)

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Count your Blessings

Hi everyone! 

I have another new Whipper Snapper sample to share today. 

Count Your Blessings


This is Bebee.  Isn’t she cute?  I stamped her onto one of the solid “patterned” papers from Basic Grey’s Lemonade paper pad, added some tiny rhinestones to the flower centers and Star Dust Stickles to her wings.

The sentiment is from Anna’s Blooming Expressions.  (That set was a “must have” for me.)

That’s it.  Another short one.  🙂   Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
