Totes Ma Goats


Happy Holly-Day Monday!

I guess Totes Ma Goats means being overly excited and trying to act cool, lol.   Well there is one thing for sure, this little goat is ADORABLE!!!  I used to live on a farm in Oregon when I was a kid, for a spell, and we had a goat who gave birth to a kid.  I thought it was very cute, but my Sister absolutely loved these goats.  So I thought I would make up a whole mess of cards from this set just for her.

SugarPea Designs - Totes Ma Goats
Doodlebug Design 6x6 - Springtime

I don't think Laura has added the newest SugarPea sets, but I do know she is ordering them about once a month, so if you shoot her an email and ask her to add this set, I'm sure she would be happy to order it for you when her next order comes in.  This means it might be a couple weeks or so before you get it, but you will get it.   This is what the complete set looks like.

I have seen some seriously cute cards made with this set, so I was happy to pick up mine in a hurry. 

There is still one more day to play in our Fancy Folds Challenge.  I have seen some amazing folds that I cannot wait to try out!   You may also want to check out the New Items in the store!

Thanks for Looking in on us today.

Dance Like No One is Watching!


Happy Saturday Friends!  It's  Marcy here to share some inspiration for you all today!

Here is my card...


This card features the adorable Dancin Mae from Some Odd Girl!  Isn't she so adorable? I love how she is grooving to some tunes and her happy expression!  I've always been a big fan of SOG and was so excited when Laura decided to carry this line at the store!  They just have the sweetest characters and are super fun to color!   So I colored up cute Mae with my copics and then kept my design pretty simple by just adding layers of these beautiful papers by Echo Park called "Beautiful Life".   I added some Recollections bling in some multiple colors for a fun touch!

Here are the Supplies Used:
Dancin Mae - Some Odd Girl
Beautiful Life  - Echo Park
 Victorian Velvet - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Black Tuxedo -Memento Ink
Be sure to stop by the Loves Rubberstamps store to see the items used on my card and to see all of the Some Odd Girl Stamps!  They are all so adorable and there are many to choose from!  Hope to see you back here tomorrow for the fun "Sensational Sunday" blog hop!

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
Marcy

Loving Spring!

Happy Friday Friends!

It's Athina here, happy to be back to share a little inspiration with you!  I am so glad it is Friday!!!  Do you have any big plans for the weekend?  We are planning some more yard work and planting some flowers for spring.  I read somewhere that if you put newspaper under your mulch it will keep the weeds away and it will degrade in time.  So I have saved my newspapers and I am going to give it a shot.

Well, I realized after I made my card that I used the same colors that I used for the challenge on Tuesday.  It must be my favorite right now.   I used   Magnolia - Tilda with Daffodil image colored with Copics.  The background papers is by My Minds Eye.  Let me tell you a little trick.  I did not have ribbon to match the card.  So I took white ribbon and used my R85 Copic to color the ribbon.  It now matches perfectly!  Great trick.  You only have to buy white ribbon when you have copics!!!





Make sure to come and join our Fancy Fold challenge this week at Loves Rubberstamps!   I promise you it will be lots of fun!  Also make sure to check out the store for some fun new Random Fan images that have been added!

That is it for me today! 
Blessings until next time...

Some Bunny Loves You!

Hello, It's  Marcy here and I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!   Since the Easter holiday is tomorrow, I thought it would be the perfect time to share an Easter card I've made for my goddaughter.

Here is my card...


I used the adorable Marci from La La Land Crafts for my card.  They have the sweetest images and I just LOVE Marci and Luka images.  This one is called "Marci with Bunny" and I thought she would be just perfect for this Easter card.  Isn't she so adorable and that little bunny is so sweet too!   I colored her up with my copics and then added some stickles to the flowers on her headband.  I also decided to add some grass to have her sit on which was fun to do!  The pretty papers I used are called "Flower Box" by Doodlebug Design.  I am so addicted to these paper pads lately and want every collection!  They are just so fun and bright!  Behind cute Marci, I used a Spellbinders called "Beaded Circles".  Finally, I added some colorful enamel dots randomly on my card to give it some additional interest.

Here are the Supplies Used:
Marci With Bunny - La La Land Crafts
Beaded Circles - Spellbinders
 Victorian Velvet - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Flower Box - Doodlebug Design
Enamel Dots - My Mind's Eye
Black Tuxedo -Memento Ink
Be sure to stop by the Loves Rubberstamps store to see the items used on my card and to see all of the latest La La Land Craft stamp and die sets!  Hope to see you back here tomorrow for the fun "Sensational Sunday" blog hop!

Have a wonderful Saturday and Happy Easter to you all!

Hugs,
Marcy

Happy Easter! Inspiration by Athina

Happy Friday Friends!

It's Athina here, happy to be back to share a little inspiration with you!  Hopefully a lot of you have today, Good Friday, off work.  I will be working, but many people are out of the office, so it will be a good day to get lots caught up.  Do you have any big plans for the Easter weekend?  We are having a family dinner and Easter egg hunt.  It is always lots of fun and great to spend time with my family.

I made a cute little Easter basket cut out with the Silhouette.  I have some handmade goodies to go in the basket, but I can't share those with you just yet.  So be sure to check my blog next week to see what will be inside.  It is for a very special lady in my life.  I hope she likes it!!!  I used   Magnolia - Tilda & Her Bunny, a perfect image for the basket. I finished it off with a ribbon, charm and some Wild Orchid Crafts - Flowers.  The sentiment is by C.C. Designs - Be Happy.  It was so simple and fun to put together. 



Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Copics
C.C. Designs - Be Happy
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Stormy Sky 
Wild Orchid Crafts - Flowers

There you have it! It goes right along with our fun challenge this week at Loves Rubberstamps, spring or Easter.  So come on over and play with us!  I promise you it will be lots of fun!

That is it for me today!  Have a blessed Easter weekend and we will see you back next week.
Blessings until next time...
