Ha! I've been waiting to use that title ever since I bought some flock a few weeks back!! This was a card for Tracy's sketch challenge this week. This colors on this card remind me of McDonald's, the fuzzy red hair on this bird doesn't help much either.
I used the Sakura glue pen for attaching the flock and it actually stuck really well. The other glue I used didn't really work out too good for me!

I couldn't stay away from my A muse stamps too long! This was a another quick birthday card for one of my co-workers. I stamped the cake on another piece of paper and popped the cake off the image to give it a 3D look.
I got to travel a bit this past summer and found a new show to watch on the flights. I got up on three seasons of 'How I Met Your Mother' and thought it was hilarious! It's starts tonight so I'm off to catch up.

Here's a quick birthday card for my SIL. I used my glue pen to add glitter to her wings and added Stickles to any empty spot.

About the title, the party was supposed to be a surprise party but am I unable to lie to my husband. It's a sickness. I turn into a 5 year old and he can see it all over my face that I'm not telling the truth. So the cats out of the bag!

I needed another baby girl card this week. Women are taking over the world one birth at a time, this is the fourth baby girl card in the last 3 months. I used the rectangle nesties, which I totally love but I think they have me in a rut. Hopefully I'll have time to play with some other layouts sometime this week.

Happy Wednesday! Just a few days closer to the weekend. Life is fairly quiet right now which is alright with me. This card is for the addicts weekly challenge, create a sports card or use your fav team's colors. So living in San Antonio I bleed silver and black for the San Antonio Spurs! They are such an amazing team and great role models for the kids here.
My little stars were stamped with versamark and then covered in A muse simple stick. After that was heated I added glitter and voila super shiny stars! Though I'm still trying to get the glitter off the floor of my craft room. I did the same with the moon and added the a quick sentiment on the bottom right of the card.

Still working on sketch challenges to keep me busy! This another one from Tracy at Eat, Sleep Stamp. I went a little crazy with rhinestones, I added one to the center of each flower. This was also the first time I used the cool shadow marker to highlight around the image!

On to the card, this idea was floating around in my head and I'm 100% sure if I like the end result. I wanted to use the angel and devil from the most recent A muse release as the typical good/evil situation. Obviously the bandit chose the latter! To make the bank I used the Surf Shop and masked the surfing supplies. In the end I might try to rework this later with a little more color.

This card was a CASE by Julie HRR. A friend of mine was celebrating her 29th birthday and was taking it pretty hard. She felt like the fun of her 20's were gone so I wanted to do something goofy to make her laugh. This did the trick!
I goofed a bit on the some of buildings so I covered it with my super woman. My favorite touch is the little green sticker as an olive in the martini.

So here's the first card, this is for a new baby girl. For the first card I created my own background paper with a clear stamp from A muse. I've been experimenting with glitter and different glues. I think I found my favorite, it held up the best after drying. I think it's called scrappy glue. I may try another glitter brand to see if that's my problem. For now this stuff works!
