You're the Icing On My Cupcake

It's been awhile since I posted a card using any of my Paper Nest Dolls images, and I must apologize...because I still love them with my whole heart! This one is no exception!!


This Ellie with Heart Cupcake, and she is one of my favorites! She was created for the Paper Nest Dolls 4th Birthday Party, and she's currently available as a digi! I paired her with one of my favorite sentiments from The Cat's Pajamas.

I used super bright colors, as always, paired with cardstock from Bazzil in Banana Split and Candy Hearts, and MFT in Blu Raspberry. My buttons are from MFT and various other vendors, and I used Authentique twine, May Arts gingham, Creative Expressions spiral clips, and Recollections brads.

Well, that is it for me for today! Thanks for hanging out with me and have a great day!

TCPTUES330-Oh Crab!!!



Hey there party people, it's time for another challenge for the Cat's Pajamas!!
This two week's challenge is to use shapes....which I do all the time, anyway, so this was easy peasy!!


For my card I used the Seas The Birthday set, which I paired with a couple different CutUps, the Framed Up 2 and Square Stamps, to create my background. I used some Doodlebug paper, paired with bright colors of cardstock, matching ribbon, red buttons, and some Bella Baubles. I even used my hot glue gun and didn't burn my fingers. It was a very grown up moment for me.

Here are the product's from The Cat's Pajamas that I have used today:





Here are the details to the challenge:

  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EDT before the next challenge.
  3. You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
  4. On the following TCP Tuesday, the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10 or $15 if a TCP product is used.



So, that is it for me for now!! I sure hope you had a chance to play along with this awesome challenge! Have a great week!

TCPTUES329-Thank You

Hey there friends and stampers, hope you are having a great day, and all that stuff.
I'm tried. Like super tired...not superhero tired, just super tired. I go through phases anymore. They coincide with migraines, too. I get uncontrollable migraines, and get so tired I can't stay awake...it's ridiculous....like, I've slept probably 60 hours in the last 72. It's ridiculous, and when I'm awake, my head hurts so bad, I wish I was asleep. Pretty magnificent.

Anywho, BEHOLD!!! I HAVE MADE A CARD!!
I am trying to be more active, and here I am with a card for the current challenge from The Cat's Pajamas. The challenge is to make a thank you card, and who doesn't need one of those around??!!


I decided to use one of my favorite sets, My Hero! I used a Thank You sentiment from Simply Stacked Sentiments, and you won't see it, mostly because I forgot to take a picture of it, but I used the You're My Superhero sentiment on the inside of the card because, even superheroes need to be thanked. I paired my card with paper from the Make a Wave from Fancy Pants, which I paired with cardstock from MFT in Orange Fizz, Wild Cherry, and Berrylicious. My ribbon is Wild Cherry grosgrain, and Orange ruffled gingham ribbon. I used brads, spiral clips, and buttons in my cardstock colors from MFT. I also used CutUps from the Cats Pajamas for my background including  Wavy Stitched Border and Framed Up 2.

Here are the Cat's Pajamas products that I used:





Here are the details to the challenge:

  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
