LIM CAS Buttons & Ribbon

Hello again... today i was inspired by the Less is More challenge of "buttons and ribbons".  I knew exactly what i was going to do!  I made the ribbon is look like the road.  I like red and black together, so i used a Tim Holtz stamp in black and used red buttons that fit perfectly in the wheels.  The wording is a Hero Arts Stamp, stamped in red ink.  Thanks for looking...

Circles Challenge

Hello... Here is my latest card for the Clean & Simple Circles Challenge .  I used The Stampotique Stamp called Three in a Round.  Along with this I used two Hero Arts Pinwheel stamps.  The colors i used were Bliss Blue and Kiwi Kiss.  Wording is just hand written.  I really like this card.  I think i may be making more Clean & Simple Cards.  Thanks for looking.

Crafty Individuals July 2011 Challenge

Well here is my entry for the Crafty Individuals Pink, Brown, and Cream challenge for July.  I do like these colors.  I think the lace goes nice with it cause it's sort of a vintage card.  The background paper is TimHoltz and the wording is "Life's Simple Pleasures" (one of my favorites). Thank you for visiting...

Here is a picture of the bird right side up.  Little easier to look at now.  sorry about that...

Hello Everybody...
Thought I'd share a tag that i did (i really like making tags, 6 1/4 X 3 1/8 is the size i use)...  I used a Hero Arts houses stamp in pink and used the line from the John Mellencamp song "Little Pink Houses".  Tearing around the edge makes it look like you are peeking into another world.  Somtimes i think it would be nice to escape this world.
The second one is a paper doll Bird.  I have this fascination with paper dolls, plus i like birds, too.  So it was perfect for me!  The feet are so high because i wanted to make it look like he was sitting on the cage and his tail feathers were fluffed around the top of the cage.
Hope you like... thanks for stopping by.

Hello everyone... Here is a fishie card i made recently for my sister.  She got new goldfish, and i happen to have this new goldfish stamp.  She was surprised and happy.  Sometimes i like to do that, just surprise someone out of the blue, just because.  It makes you feel good to see them smile.  Right now i'm waiting to receive some stampotique stamps that i ordered.  I love their stamps!  i even have a journal page waiting for the stamps.  Guess i'm a little anxious.  :)  I willl definately show the page when it is done.
