Angel Blog Hop "Little Cupcake"

This Angel blog hop theme is "Little Cupcake" a brand new set from The Angel Company. It's a great set for birthdays, or any other occasion you want to make a "sweet" statement!
So here are the projects that I created, I made a quick birthday card using the cake image, quick and easy to color, and I added a little stickles to the frosting for some extra zing!
My next project is this cute little cupcake holder (there is this great little bakery here in my town and they put their cup cakes in these little containers, too cute) I added some patterned paper and one of the cup cake images, some ribbon. For the topper I added a felt flower and button from one of our embellishment jars! All I need now is a beautiful cup cake to put inside and I will have a great gift for someone special! What do you think?
Make sure you stop by and take a look at all the other Angels who are joining in on this blog hop, you are sure to get lots of inspiration!!

Share Your Art!!

I was over at Barb's Blog while hopping around, and I think that this is a fantastic way to share our art! The first 5 people to respond to this post will get something made by me! Could be a card which I am really pleased with, a piece 0f jewelry I made, or something else all together LOL! My choice!

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make although I hope you do!
2. What I create will be made with you in mind so you won't get something I already made unless I think it suits you to a T.
3. It'll be done sometime within the next 2 months.
4. You have no clue what it's going to be.
5. The catch is that you must offer this blog candy on your blog! Re-post this on your blog, offer something you make - your choice - to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog (then come here and post). Oh wait make that the first 4 people cause I am #1 {giggle} Yep be sure to add my name to the #1 line on your blog post - I am the first participant and I am already offering to share. When you create your give-away you will be the #1 spot for players 2-5 on your list. The first 4 people to post this on their blogs and leave a comment here telling me they did (I will go to your blog to check that you have this posted) will get an art share handmade item from me. Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it! SO ...................who will be next????

Colored Eggs

I made this card last year for the Winger Design Team, on Paper Wings. I did not have any Easter stamps last year, so I thought about what I did have and this is what I came up with! I used an Angel Company set called "Running Stitches" to create
a series of lines, on water color paper. Then I punched my 'egg' out with my oval punch, ta-dah instant egg! I used water color crayons to color it in, I love the effect of water color crayons. The other eggs are just plain colored card stock, also punched out with my oval punch, that I chalked to give a little depth. I used a square punch and some free hand cutting to make the 'carton'. The sentiment is also from the Angel Company, by has since been retired. I still love how this turned out, what do you think?
Hope you are having a great day, thanks for stopping by!

"Blissfully Ever After" Angel Blog Hop

This months Angel Blog Hop is using the set "Blissfully Ever After". I don't actually have this set, but another Angel was kind enough to send me some images so I could join in the fun! Thanks Barbara!

Here are the 2 cards that I created, all the images are from "Blissfully Ever After". The sentiment on the second card is from "Elegant Sentiments", also from The Angel Company. Make sure you stop by to see all the other girls creations, it is so fun to see all the different ideas and ways to use the same set!
Have fun and let us all know what you think! :)

One Year!

The other day I got to thinking, and I couldn't remember when I started my blog. So I checked, and wouldn't you know, I missed my 1 year blogavesary!! It was last week, and this is the card from my very first post. It was not really an actual post, it was an attempt to get a photo uploaded, an attempt that actually worked,( thank you Kemi for helping me!) and then I didn't know what to say so I left it blank! :) How funny is that?
I just want to say a big THANK YOU to all of you that stop in regularly, or from time to time. (WOW! I just checked my counter, there are a lot of you!! :o) I really appreciate all of the very kind comments that you leave for me too, so BIG cyber ((((((hugs)))))) to you all!
I hope this next year does not fly by as fast as this last one. And I hope that I will gain some much needed computer knowledge so I can do more with my little blog here!
Have a really great day!!
Card Info: I made this card for a swap on Paper Wings. One of my first attempts to really color with my Copic markers! All stamps are from The Angel Company, the sunflower is from "Flowers and Holly", the sentiment I believe is retired and the swirly flourish was a gift with purchase stamp from the last catalog. Paper is DCWV yellow, and white card stock.
