How's everything in your Bowl Card!

This card was totally inspired by the stamp by Studio G. I had been dying to use it! Well I had just started making the card when my 6yo nephew arrived at my house so I had to rush to complete it quickly before he got a hold of them. So this is what I came up with!TFL!

We make a "Rad Pear" Card w/ video!

You know what? I love paper!!! For many reasons but mainly because I am many times inspired by paper and this is definitely one of those times! I was trying to design something on my gypsy and I just didn't like what was coming up on the screen. So I turned it off and thought I was in a phunk. So I started skimming through my Basic Grey Paper and lo and behold I run across this paper in the Offbeat paper pad! IT inspired me to make this card! A combo I would've never thought of on my own! But they do make a cute couple!

Jack in the Box Card!

I love the B is for Boy Cart, I can't stop using it! For this card I used the adorable little Jack in the Box as the focal point of the card. I just love all the toys that are on the cart like a yo-yo, xylophone, jack in the box, etc. Since no other carts have those it's nice to have them all together. Here's my card:TFL!!

Under the Sea Classroom Card!

The B is for Boy is just giving me so many ideas for cards! Like this cute little octopus! He looks so sophisticated with his little bowl hat and bow tie:) He looked so teacher like. He reminded me of a computer game I used to play when I was younger called Freddi Fish where a starfish was the teacher. Well anyways I made a little under the sea classroom with sea creatures from different carts. Hope you like it! TFL!

Wooing Porcupines Card!

The moment I saw this porcupine in B is Boy I immediately thought of the cute girl porcupine in Create a Critter! It looked as if he wanted to give her that little leaf. So I brought them together in a Sunflower Garden so they could meet. Now you know the Background story of this card:)

I think it came out pretty good and it was surprisingly easy to assemble.Oh and it was cut at 11 1/2.TFL!

Picnic at the beach card!

I was so upset the other day when the new update for the gypsy didn't work since I had I just gotten the new seasonal cartridges. I just can't design without my gypsy,LOL. So I cut out this little girl from H20 and made the rest of the scene with stickers and some die cuts that came with a paper pack I recently bought. TFL!

Relax in the tub card!

I had seen so many of you use the tinkerbell cut to make a tub card I was just dying to make one. So I finally got the cartridge for a great price on ebay and was able to make this card. I used my Tim Holtz Lost and Found Paper(Which I love!)I used the walnut stain distress ink around the edges so it would like as if someone were dreaming about it kind of like a memory of some sorts or when they put those thought bubbles in cartoons. Ahh, I hope you get what I'm getting at! Anyways, Thanks for looking!

"Homage to the U.S"July 4th Card

This 4th of July is kind of extra special than the others I've gone through.This past year I've learned the entire U.S History and I loved it. I feel more connected to where I live now that I know the toil and trouble it took for Americans to get this far. My parents are from Cuba and came here 38 years ago to escape communism. I am still proud to have Cuban roots but am also glad to have been born and grown in this beautiful country. So this card is just paying a bit of homage to the good ol' US of A:)
