It's A Guy Thing

Two posts in one day, I am getting a bit crazy here! So the current Wednesday Challenge theme over at Simon Says Stamp is "It's a guy thing" which is a real challenge for me but I thought I would give it a go and made a boy card for a change.
I am loving my new Stampin' Up Cheerful Critters and thought a little bear would be perfect. The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp set and I decided to use woodgrain and grey card as my base to keep it feeling masculine. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Lucy Loo Song For Tears

The last week has been a whirlwind and while I have been making some cards I haven't had time to sit down and do any blogging (I really need to make better use of my new planner!).

Today there is a new Lucy Loo release over at The East Wind  and I cannot even tell you how much I love this image! It is called Lucy Loo Song For Tears and she is just so pretty.

Here is a card I made using her:

As I said I love the image but I wasn't sure how I was going to use it, I was thinking an art journal page but when I was glancing around my desk I spied a little I MISS YOU stamp and it all just came together - I love it when they happens. I even had the pink heart pre-cut and decided to utilise that.
I wanted to add some interest around the edge of the card so I use a stitched die from Lawn Fawn to finish it off. I really love how this came out.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Wishing You Joy

Today I made a card for the new Muse Challenge #99. The muse card is from a lady called Vicki who has made this beautiful card:
I took my inspiration from the circle and also the shaker component for my card. For the sentiment I used by brand new Simon Says Stamp - Wishing & Sending Stamp Set. 

At the moment I only have a plain circle die so to add a bit more interest to the white card I dry embossed it with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.

I am also entering this in the Color Throwdown Challenge #324 which is why I decided to incorporate the black base, I think it makes the card very striking. 
Thank you so much for visiting,

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - New

Today I made a card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is "Something New"  (and I also used it for a challenge at Splitcoast Stampers).

I just got a whole slew of new goodies from SSS and have been stamping my heart out. Here is my card:
The little penguin is from Mama Elephant and I have used the Simon Says Stamp Sending and Wishing stamp, such a fabulous set and I know I will use it lots. 

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have a nice weekend.
