Ok so I did share all my cards from last week and here is one more card I made. I used a stamp from The Stamps of Life. The sentiment was from Papertrey Ink. I was trying to do a more masculine card since this was a birthday card for my god father. But they are so hard to come up with for me.
I was unable to make a layout since I have ben really sick lately. I have no energy either. I will do my best to try to get to my craft area this week. But no guarantees. The good news is the reason for all this sickness is...
I am Pregnant!
Hope to post something soon.

THE SWEET STOP CHALLENGE
Over at The Sweet Stop is challenge SSS42. The challenge was to make a circle card. I got mine from the Sweet Treats cartridge. The girl is a stamp from The Greeting Card named Ruby. I colored her clothes with my Stampin Write markers and used chalk for her hair and face.The sentiment is stamped from Papertrey Ink which I absolutely love. I punched pink cardstock added ribbon, flowers and light green rhinestones to my flowers. I like the way she came out even though it looks lopsided. It doesn't as much in person. Oh well. That just means hand-made right.
Here is a close up.

Okay here is my version for the cuttlebug challenge. These are for my kids for valentines day and then I filled them with candy. So much fun. I hope they like them.
Daniel gets this frog one of course. I embossed the circle with swiss dots folder. Then I cut out a frog on the designer paper and popped him up on one side of the circle. The other side I used two stamps from The Stamps of Life the says I Love You in a circle and then in the middle I place an XOXO stamp from the same set in the middle. The big from on the front was cut out with my new Paisley cartridge that I absolutely LOVE! Isn't he adorable. Then I gave him some googly eyes. He is popped up as well. The ribbon was just random ribbon in my stash.
For my baby Isabella who is almost 2 I made her this. I cannot remember the brand of paper I used but it is gorgeous paper and soo thick. I cut out the little paper doll girl and stamped her face as usual with Peachy Keen Stamps. The scalloped heart is from a random cricut cartridge I have. I then placed an I from my stash as well. Hope you enjoyed.

Here is my layout of the week for my son. 50% mom 50% dad 100% cute. You thats him. I stickled some stars. The stars were punched out with my Stampin Up Stars Punch. The circles and the letters were cut from Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. Enjoy
I cannot get a good picture of my card :(
I stamped my Stampin Up medallion stamp with versamark, then embossed it with blue embossing powder. Then added pink and white pearls. I used the white pen from Stampin Up to draw the lines on the top and bottom of my ribbon. The bow is pink and white like my pearls.
I have not stamped a sentiment on it yet. Do not know what I am going to use it for yet.
