Rice Rice, Bling Baby!

TGIF! Instead of Friday Faves today, I have a card to share. FF may not be a regular feature because on some weeks I am not finding anything I want to share (weeks where I don’t have a lot of extra blog surfing time…) Disney recaps will be starting sometime soon too! I’ve got several draft posts started and need to get the pictures plugged in and then I hope to share 1-2 a week.


I made this card for my friend Sally’s birthday which is today. She is a sushi lover so I pulled out my Rice Rice, Baby from Sugar Pea Designs and made her card using this month’s sketch. I just love coloring and paper piecing this little penguin! I couldn’t help but bling up the card along the border and on the flower. I tend to not make my cards bulky for mailing but this one just called for it LOL!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Good morning and Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there!


I need to get ready to take my Mom out for breakfast but I wanted to share her card here first.  I used the Sugar Pea Designs sketch challenge and it ends today.


When I saw Love You Bunches in the store, I knew it would be perfect for my Mom’s card 🙂 It took me three tries to color the poor girl though lol…I was a bit rusty after not coloring for several weeks! She looks much better in real life than my cell phone camera picture…I really liked how her hair came out.

What’s Mew?

I’m down to the wire here on the Sugar Pea Designs Embellish It challenge! I got my order yesterday and I knew I had to ink up the adorable What’s Mew stamp set to enter a card.


Card 16 - April2014 Sugar Pea Designs Whats Mew-001


To embellish the card, I pulled out my ancient set of ribbon tags from Spellbinders. I ran some grosgrain ribbon through it and then added pearls to the top of the window and near the top of the card.  I added some glossy accents to the window.


That’s all I’ve got for tonight!
