Ana's Anya Card

So there is/was a contest for kids over at Anya land and this was my daughter beautiful entry. I reluctantly let her use my copic ciao's but she did a wonderful job and was very responsible with them, it thrilled her to no end that I let her use them too :D. I love how her card turned out!

Minnie Mouse

So here is a little something I came up with on accident recently. I think they are super cute!! The middle swivels open on a brad and it has a clear plastic window in the middle. What do you think ,would they make good birthday invites?

Father's Day cards

So I made a plethora of cards this year for father's day, but none of them really felt inspired, though oldest daughter's card was very sweet and heartfelt inside and really made her dad's day :).

Drive In

Last night we went to the drive in with the kiddos, it was so wonderfully cool outside that we got a bit chilly by the end of the night, not something you can usually say the end of June in the Valley of the Sun. Usually its so hot, even at night, that you don't want to leave the house, much less spend 4 hours at the drive in.

We watched Night at the Museum and it left a lot to be desired if you ask me, and the second feature was not for kids, X-men, but they slept through it anyhow. It was fun just to go out together and is probably our last day/night of cool weather the rest of the season...

the cheese master, who had already enjoyed to much soda and candy, in case you can't see it all over her shirt.

and this is what happens when you take pictures in the dark and don't hold still ;)

and here is a picture of the sunset on the way to the drive in

Anya black and white challenge

Details to come later today, but for now here is the card I made last night, which clued me in to the fact that I need to buy vellum adhesive so you aren't able to see my glue under the vellum

Cupcake Box and Matching Card

My neighbor had a birthday this week, I made her a breakfast muffin and used the tutorial here to create a cupcake box for it with the scor pal, I added a matching card and had a cute, affordable and appreciated gift!! The scalloped border and circle are cut with the nestabilities dies, the tip of the box has a piece of clear card stock to keep the muffin from drying out. The flowers are done with simple paddle punches and the buttons are attached through a button hole punch I made in the paper flower and tied on with scrapbookers floss. The stamped flowers are colored in with copic spica markers. The sentiment stamp and flower vase stamps from just rite stamps. The balloon and enjoy today stamp are from verve stamps.

A Graduation Card

A Grad card for the daughter of an online friend. The hat and gown are popped out and the hat has 6 swarovski cyrstals, the diploma has the sides punched with edge punch, the flowers are punched, glued together and then have a swarovski crystal on top. The black background is embossed with the numbers cuddlebug embossing folder. The seal was made by hand cutting the edges of the round punch out and then colored with a gold paint pen. The honors cord is a some fiber I had bought in a bunch off of an etsy seller, and of course the Anya digi stamp was colored with my copic ciao markers, the hair was a challenge Im sitll perfecting my blending, and trying to match the graduates hair color was a challenge, I had to do it twice befor I was happy with it.

Little Red Riding Hood's Get Well Card
