Orange you glad....



Birthday Sundaes challenge for this week is to create a birthday card using the colors orange, green, and white. At first, I was a little freaked out by this color combination, I almost made a similar version of the card I made last time, with the Popsicles because they were the right color. But after I started to think about it, I ended up making two cards - how funny! The first one is a play on the knock knock joke..."Orange you glad I didn't say bananas". I really don't like how the whole sentiment is on the front of the card. I think I'll make it again with "Orange you glad..." on the front and "...I didn't forget your BIRTHDAY?" on the inside. Orange is from the Preserves cartridge and the punch is a Martha Stewart punch, can't remember which. I'm sure some of you out there know which one just by looking. The second card I made using the sketch for CPS #226. Flowers are from the Forever Young cart and both sentiments are computer generated. Also inspired from a recent blog hop, both cards are made using only scraps!

Orange Creamsicles!

I'm so excited about this card, the colors really remind me of rainbow sherbet, which I absolutely LOVE. I can just imagine eating these two super cold orange creamsicles on a hot summer day. The two Popsicles are from Doodlecharms and are cut at 3". The card background is from DCWV The Sweet Stack and the sentiment is computer generated. I've entered this into the Tacky Tuesday and Birthday Sundaes challenge. *Also Papercutz Challenge #99 Thanks for looking :)

MIA and Baby Shower Stuff



Well it's been quite a while since I've been able to post anything. Things got a little hectic here at my house with the end of the school year (1st job is a teacher) as well as tax deadline (2nd job is an accountant), that I wasn't able to write or take pics of what I had made. I was able to make some cards for some birthdays and a baby shower I attended but no pics were taken. Recently we threw a shower for my cousin who is expecting her first baby and I asked if I could make some decorations and some favors (practically begged). I made a diaper cake as well as some simple "bouquets" and some simple party favors. All the cuts are from doodlecharms, create-a-critter, and new arrival. Color scheme was just basic blue and white with a touch of yellow from the duckies. "Grandma-2-be" wanted a very traditional "It's a Boy" feel. Everything turned out super cute and we didn't spend a whole lot. The mama-2-be was super happy as well as the Grandma-2-be. Thanks for looking and I'd love to hear what you think!
