Inspiration from Momo

If you haven't come across or heard of MadebyMomo in the blogosphere you don't know what you are missing! You can check her out here and on YouTube. Anyway, Momo has asked her followers to create something in which we have drawn inspiration from her creations...(I hope that makes sense); not sure if I worded it correctly : ) But anywhoo here are my creations; she has inspired me to just use my cartridges more; to think outside the box and to really get my creative MOJO flowing!

The card was made using the create a critter cartridge of course; the gator was cut at 2", the birds were cut at 1" and 1 1/4" and the larger one was flipped, the phrase was cut at 1 1/2' and 1 3/4". The pictures are on page 45 and 39 for the phrase. The designer papaer is from the Animal crackers matstack by DCWV...

In Memory of Reshard

These roses are in momory of my son who was killed in a car crash along with 2 of his friends a few years ago;(actually the anniversary is coming up May 5th). We planted this rose as a memorial and there is also a cherub underneath which we call a guardian angel. These pictures were taken 2 days ago and they are still beautiful today......

Have a scrap happy day!

New Father's Day cards

Here are a few cards I've made so far for Father's Day; I am in the process of also making some for Mother's Day and I will post those later ( I have 10 orders for those already) : )....

I found this shirt pattern from youtube; I will post the creator/link when I come across it again. The letters were stamped, cut out and filled in with glossy accents.

Hope you are having a scrap happy day!

What do you think about this?

After viewing all the great videos on youtube re create a critter, and others; but especially create a critter. Today was a veg out day for me (only left the house once; and didn't go to Michaels or Joanns). Anywhoo....I cut out several animals from the create a critter cartridge; so I thought it would be a great idea to cut out sevral of the same size critters and place them in envies with the size they were cut out at.....what do you all think about this idea?

Are you in the mood for a challenge?

Check out madebymomo; she is challenging us to make a card with an animal on it. I you have that very popular "Create a Critter" cartridge now is the time to get can also check momo out on youtube! See you there. Here is the link for more info on the challenge;

Great Crop Night at Michaels!!!

Wow did we have a blast tonight at Michaels.....instead of trying to tell you about it let me show you some of the fun.....the first three pictures are my card creations....

The pictures actually start from the up; I didn't realize this until they were all downloaded! But anywhoo; you can tell when the night started by looking at the first few pictures and how clean the tables WERE!

In the pictures where someone is holding the pink star wand is the person that finished a project; then you held onto the wand until someone else completed a project or the timer went off. If the wand was still in your possession when the timer went off you WON a prize! I won 2 prizes tonight......LOL..again we had a blast and can hardly wait until next time.
