Peachy Keen Challenge 32 – Sketch – Aug 2012

This week over at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog a Sketch Challenge is going on. I love Peachy Keen stamps, since my drawing talent is stick men and stick woman.

Peachy Keen Challenge 32 – Sketch –  Aug 2012

So here is the card that I made:

I used the Cricut Lite Recess cartridge for the little school girl sitting at her desk. The cardstock comes from Recollections Back to School collection.

I used the Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kids Assortment for her face. Then used my Sukura Gelly Roll Pen in White for her eyes and my Bic markers for the rest of the face.

The sentiment is from Pink By Design’s Simply Everything. This is a great stamp set full of sentiments for every occasion.

The Tree stamp is from a local Dollar store which I colored with Copics and added some Glossy Accents to the apple to give it shine.

The inside sentiment is from a Studio G set that I got at Michaels.

You should head on over to Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge Blog and check out the other entries, there are many very talented crafters out there.

Beetle to the Rescue!

This week on one of my adventures to Costco, I did something that was really silly. I was having rather a bad day and then… I locked my keys in the car along with my purse and cell phone. What a disaster… I can’t believe that I did that… really. I quickly ran around the car trying all the doors even the trunk but no luck, locked nice and tight. A little bit of panic set in and then I thought  I’d go to the tire center, maybe someone there can help me. No one to be found, I can hear them in the back but still no one comes out, now what???

I start walking back to my car when a yellow VW Beetle drives into the same aisle as me only 2 spots over… I wonder if they can help? So I made my way over and asked if they happen to have the number to the VW line (which is in the owners manual/which is in the locked car). Unfortunately they didn’t have the book in the car but they were members of BCAA.

Next thing I knew she was on the phone, calling them to help open my car. I can’t believe that they did that for me, I was so shocked and so thankful for their kindness. I wanted to repay them but they said it was fine and that they were glad they could help. It’s nice to know that there are still people out there that would help someone if they needed it and ask nothing in return.

I wanted to make them a Thank you card, so after I got into my car I wrote a quick note on a napkin, gave her my blog address and stuck it under the windshield blade. Hope they get a chance to see it, because I truly appreciate their generosity that day.

I made a different type of card this time, I made a twisted easel card.

I stamped my Imaginisce Vroom stamp in Memento Dandelion ink and then colored in with a yellow Copic.  I then stamped Thank you from the Pink By Design Here Comes the Bride stamp set. I added some Lemon Divine Twine and used the Beep Beep Cuttlebug folder for the tire tracks.

I used my Spellbinder’s Ovals and Scalloped Ovals and embossed the front sentiment. It is from the My Favorite Kind stamp set by Pink By Design. The inside sentiment is a stamp from Stampin’ Up.

So if you read this – here’s a BIG THANK YOU from me to you!

I will also be linking this to the Sarah Hamer’s Link Up Tuesday. Stop by and check out what everyone has been up to.

Birthday Slider Box

Just over a week ago it was the Pink By Design July Stamp Release but I was at work and had to miss it 😦

Darn work, always getting in the way …lol.

Well that night they made a Slider Box, perfect for many things. It’s fun, quick and easy to make and the only limit is your imagination when it comes to decorating the box.

 So here is my version of the box…. a Birthday Slider Box.

I used 110# Cardstock that I purchased at Staples for the slider box to make sure the box was nice and sturdy. Then added some Recollections cardstock and DCWV Birthday pattern paper.

I used my Martha Stewart Balloon punch, attached 3 together and stamped my sentiment right on the balloons. The sentiment is from Pink by Design’s April Stamp of the Month – My Favorite Kind.

I used some Divine Twine in Aqua for the balloon string.

Now slide it open and SURPRISE!!

I added some tissue paper and some candy fish  for some sweet birthday wishes!!!

Yummm. I may have had to try a few for quality control purposes only…lol.

 The inside sentiment is from Pink by Design’s Say it Sweet.

 What a great little box that you can use for any occasion, just create, decorate and fill with whatever your heart desires.

 I will be linking this to Link Up Tuesday over at Sarah Hamer’s Blog.
