Mornin' hens!
And yet ANOTHER baby card!  See I told you there were a bunch of them!  You thought I was kidding didn't you?  LOL!  And I still have one more to make!  Yikes!  

Oh well, I have to admit, I do like making cards, so I'm happy for any reason to make one.  Not to mention, I've been wanting to ink up this little guy for the longest time!  And don't you just love those stitched clouds?  Love, love, love stitched dies!  Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  I hope you hens have a GREAT day and WONDERFUL weekend ahead!  {{{hen hugs}}}

Purple Onion Designs New Release & Giveaway!

Mornin' hens!  
Today I'm participating in the new release from Purple Onion Designs!  Stacey Yacula has done it again!  I'm in LOVE with this little bear.  He's so STINKIN' CUTE with his little nose pointing to the sky!  LOL!  I had been wanting to do a few patriotic cards with Memorial Day, and the 4th of July coming up, so Michele couldn't have had better timing when she asked if I wanted to play along with this new release.  So whatcha think?  I did pretty good, huh?  The photo doesn't do this card justice because the fireworks are SUPER sparkly in real life.

The night sky and ground were completed using distress inks.  Then I stamped and embossed the fireworks in the night sky with silver, gold, and red glitter embossing powders.  Next, I adhered Bubbly (Bear) onto the card with some foam tape.   Uh, ...did you check out that shadow?  Cool huh??   That was super easy, I just laid the bear face down and outlined him with a pencil.  Then I filled in the outline with a gray Copic marker.  Woot-woot!!   

Now, for that GIVEAWAY!!  
I'll be giving away Bubbly (Bear) AND the Fireworks stamp to one lucky person who leaves a comment on this post.  The deadline for the giveaway is Friday, May 29th.  
I'll post the lucky winner's name here on Sunday, May 31st.    
Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  Don't forget to stop in over at the Purple Onion Designs blog HERE and check out all the AWESOME eye candy the POD design team has for you.

Sweet Baby!!

Mornin' hens!  
I made this little card for my cousin's daughter who is due any day now.   Seems everyone is having a baby all of the sudden!  No worries here, I don't drink water!  {{{snort!}}}  

Another CAS (clean and simple) card with just a few elements.  Love it!  This image is from the Baby We've Grown set available from Stampin Up.  I colored the image on some Neenah Solar White coverstock and fussy cut him out.  I embossed the sentiment with some white embossing powder and colored the inside of the word BABY with a matching Prismacolor pencil.  To finish, I rounded two corners, tied a bow with some white twine, and adhered a few sequins here and there!  Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  I hope you hens have a GREAT day!!  {{{hen hugs}}}
