A Couple of "Just Because" Cards

These are two cards that I created a couple weeks ago ~ they are going in my "just because" bin of cards that I can pull out to send a little note along to someone special =)

~*~ Deets ~*~
Stamp: Coffee Kiki

~*~ DEETS ~*~
Stamp: Dryabella

Sorry for the lack of details ~ for some reason I never wrote down what I used. Also, I had to scan the cards (as my camera battery is dead and the charger has been MIA since Christmas ~ YIKES!) and I'm not real wild about scanned cards ~ I think the camera does a better job =)

Sketch For You To Try

Over at SFYTT they have the January sketch posted.
I decided to ink up a new stamp ~ well, sadly enough I've had her for awhile, but this is the first time she has gotten some inky love!

Isn't she cute? I can relate to her, as I feel like all I do is laundry....it is amazing the amount of laundry three little boys can make!
I paper pieced her hair band and a couple pieces of laundry.

~*~ DEETS ~*~
Stamp: Hope & Grace (I can't find the exact stamp, but she is from that line)
DP: BG Nook & Pantry, DCWV Glitter matstack
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics (E00,E35,E37,YG00,YR23,RV02,B29,BV02,B32)
Embellishments: Prima flowers, Doodlebug jewels.
Sketch: SFYTT

Happy Birthday to Me!

Yes today is my birthday...but it isn't just ANY birthday, it is my 29th birthday (really it is!) ~ next year will be the "decade" year for me ~ I'll celebrate my 30th birthday, celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary and become the mother of a 10 year old son! Oh boy!
But how I decided to celebrate my birthday was by creating a card! I haven't had much free time as of late since I'm back in college and I watch a couple extra kids (for a friend) in the mornings, but today at naptime, I decided it was ME time!
I decided to use the sketch from Mojo (love it!) and make it really sparkly and bright (I love sparkles and bright colors!) ~ and I paper pieced the cherry and cupcake paper.
So without further ado, here is my latest and FIRST creation of the year!

~*~ DEETS ~*~

DP: DCWV glittered cardstock, DCWV Birthday Extravaganza, Bazzill "Just the Edge"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo black, Palette black, Copic (E0000)
Stamps: PMS Cherries and Sprinkles
Embellies: Diamond Stickles, Prima Pearls, Nesties

Thanks so much for stopping by!
