I'll Be Your Umbrella-Paper Nest Dolls

I've been having way too much fun with the new Paper Nest Dolls release from April, and I couldn't help but make another card using one of the other FABULOUS images released this month!! 

Here is Avery in Rain Poncho....and if that isn't just the cutest....would you LOOK AT THAT DUCK!!

I paired Avery with some super bright and colorful cardstock in Orange Fizz(MFT), Banana Split(Bazzill), and Blu Raspberry(MFT). I added super cute buttons, ribbon, and brads and spiral clips...cause, it's what I do. The striped border was actually cut out using the Wavy Stitched Border CutUps from The Cat's Pajamas, but then I covered most of it, so yeah, there's that. 

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work, and have a great day!!

Wonderful Wednesday-Coffee, Coffee, Coffee

Hey there friends....It's Wonderful Wednesday time!!  I sure hope you will play along with us....there's really no reason not to. Why you ask? Well....it's ANYTHING GOES!!  Break out your Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and get krafty!!


My card today showcases the super fun new set A Bit Smart Assy 2.....and if you know me at all, well, I'm definitely a bit Smart Assy. I've also started training myself to be a real adult, and go to bed at a decent time, and get up at a decent time, so coffee and I, well, let's just say we're bonded. I need it like I need air.

I also need to start using a face mask, so I can look like this chick....do you think it will make me skinny, too? It would have to be easier than counting carbs, because good lort that is exhausting. It's working so far, but seriously....why can't diets be FUN and EASY?

OH yeah, my card...Doodlebug paper, ruffled ribbon, bright colors, button buttons buttons, brads brads brads, spiral cliiiiips....and to make her house slippers the best ever, GOOGLIE EYES!!! Of course, like all good house slippers, they are old and worn out, so one is missing an eye.....which I thought was hilarious, but that might be the lack of sleep talking. I think I should shut up now.

We want EVERYONE to be able to play along so your submission can use ANY stamp and can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item....you name it!!  It must be a NEW creation and you can enter on this post until May 3rd at midnight!  At the end of the month one random winner will be chosen from all the submissions for the whole month and will receive a $20 Gift Card to the shop!!!  What do you think.....wanna WIN??  Let's see your krafty stuff!!


Well, that is it for me for now! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work, and have a great day!!

Spring TCP Peeks- Day Two!

I don't know if you checked out yesterday's peeks, or Alma's post on The Cat's Pajamas Blog, but we started our peeks with a new set called My Hero yesterday. She designed that set with me in mind, and I am so incredibly touched by her kind words, and support of me and my struggle....she makes my heart so full!!!

Today, we have some AMAZING accessories that go PERFECTLY with a superhero set, and on their own! They are new Comic Balloons CutUps and BOOM CutUps!! We are also peeking a new Sun Cutable, which you will see along your way as well.


I paired my CutUps with an Echo Park paper pad(Circus), and used Black Licorice(MFT), Wild Cherry(MFT), and Banana Split(Bazzill) cardstock. The CutUps cut out two layers, and I hand cut out the black layer in the background to give them a little extra bang! I added a sentiment from the new My Hero set, and then jazzed the whole card up with my normal buttons, brads, and some ruffled ribbon!

And here are the products I have used:
