Birthday Card with Chuck


I like to make cards way in advance so I don't find myself staying up late the night before someone's birthday making them a birthday card. I am working on my November cards now. This one is for a co-worker who is also a friend of my daughter. He likes to tease me by telling me that he will marry my daughter so he can enjoy my cooking all the time. This week I brought him a big container of homemade chili and some homemade buns. He's a good kid and fun to work with... so I tried to make a card that is fun like him.

I use Chuck and Sparkler - Blank Flag. I use Photoshop to add the words "You Rock" on the flag. The papers are by Pink Paislee.



I entered this card in the following wonderful challenges:
Anything Goes Challenge - Anything Goes
Partytime Tuesdays - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp and Show... - Man Card

Spectacular September at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - Week 4


This week, I am your host at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge . I am challenging you to use Majestic Violet, Gala Pink and Mariner for your projects. This week the Spectacular September is "Add something crocheted".
Please use the image below for inspiration.

I used a super cute image by our sponsor, Phindy's Place, called "Lots of Luck to you". I just love this little girl and her pretty outfit. I made the crocheted flower. I never crocheted before and could not understand any of the patterns I found on the Net. So I crocheted it without a pattern or even knowing how it is supposed to be done. I did the best I could... oh well!



I hope you will join us this week at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge. Please go have a look at what my fellow DT members and our Guest Designer did for this challenge and leave them some luv. I am looking forward to see what you will do with this color combination.

Don't forget that by entering the challenge, you get a chance to win a $15 gift certificate from this month sponsor Phindy's Place; not to mention all the other prizes available at The Outlawz (check in my blog right side bar for more details).

And don't forget our 1000 member party coming up on October 3rd. You don't want to miss that!!

Cool Chuck


I made this card for my brother for his upcoming birthday. Raymond is a cool guy. He is also an artist. I have been trying to convince him to draw digistamps for me, but he is too busy. He works full time and he also hosts a radio program once a week. Not to mention all the work he does to help others. He has a real big heart. Not only he is cool... he is a great guy.

I used one of my own images called Cool Chuck for my project. The papers are by Pinkpaislee and are called Starlight.
