A Cute Hello

This one was for a Technique Challenge, we had to make a Gel Card.  I have had this image for awhile and instantly knew how I wanted to do it.  After coloring two images I cut out the fish bowl on the top image.  I layered the image, gel filled bag, and then top image.  I love it!  This was a hard one to send away.  

Here's the Details:
ImagePixie Dust Studios golf fish; I colored with Prism colored pencils and then accented with Stickles on the fish and water drops.
Sentiment - printed on computer
Papers - all from my scrap basket
Extras - tag punch, large brad, silver wire ribbon, sequins in the gel

Thanks for looking!

Need a Hug? Card

 I was a little skeptical of this type of card, but it was for a swap so I had to give it a try.  This is a TeePee Card.  I had this adorable octopus colored and wanted to use him.  I do love how he came out. My partner has received and liked it as well.  What have you done lately that is outside your box?

Whip up Some Fun Penguin

 I do not realize how quickly time flies until I come to my blog and realize it has been WEEKS since I posted.  All I can say is life....it just gets in the way of my crafting sometimes:)  Honestly though, I have been busy with the end of school...I am the chair for our high school's All Night Grad Party...I did not realize what a HUGE undertaking it was and how time consuming the chair position is.  However, it is all worth it to provide a fun, safe place for the grads to celebrate.  This year's party, despite many hurdles, was a success.  And, yes, I am chairing next year:)  

Now on to crafting...this is a card I made for a swap.  the theme was "In the Kitchen".  I have had this stamp set forever and never used it, perfect time to try it out!

Here's the Details:
Image:  Inky antics - Baking Penguins set
Sentiment:  SimplyBStamps
Papers:  TPC Studio - So Delish Utensils - this paper was perfect as it was two sided!
Extras:  twine, Gelly Roll glitter pen, Zig black, orange, & blue pens, CM circle punch

I love my little penguin!  What are you crafting?  Have a great day!
