You Can Do It - Apron

I made this image card using From My Kitchen and my Gypsy. I don't mind saying that I need practice on welding images together. This card actually opens backwards and for some reason, I could not get the sizing all the same with some of the layers. Needless to say I have a lot to learn but I had a lot of fun as well. I did stamp - You Can Do It from one of the My Pink Stamper stamp sets- on the inside. This card goes to my mother as she is about to face a challenge next week.

Challenge for My Creative Time

I made this card for the Throwback Thursday challenge at It is fitting that this is the very FIRST card I made with my Gypsy. Luckily, I've had Emma's videos to get me ready for how to put everything together. I thought the purple leopard print was kinda funny for a cow. My DH did say - Holy cow, that cow is so ugly, he is pretty. As I drive past farmland every day and see cows, I felt the need to have my own designer cow. I'll be giving this card to my sister-in-law. I used From My Kitchen cart as I don't have many carts with animal images.

Father's Day Card for MPS Challenge

I made this card for my father and for the MyPinkStamper Challenge. The challenge is to use green, yellow, and brown for the card. It is hard to tell in the picture but I DO have yellow - so saffron. I used the Pagoda Cart to make all of the images. A word of caution - the little flowers on the branches take forever to glue on. I think if I use the branches again, I would probably do some kind of stickels instead of glueing on the flowers

NSD: MyPinkStamper Challenge - Teacher Appreciation Day

Loved this image even though it was simple. Cheers!!!
This is from the Hello Kitty Greetings Cart - super simple. It is the card function. I cut out sparkly paper for the apple and books and used a white gel pen for stitching.

NSD: MyPinkStamper Challenge 6 - Kid's Craft, Too

I did not make this card with a kid; rather, it is for a student who helped me during my National Board Process. She was wonderful to let me write about the work she completed in my class.

NSD: MyPinkStamper Challenge 10 - May Day

I have had a blessed life this past month. Many friends, family, and co-workers have helped me complete my National Board Certification. So, I find that many of the cards I've made for the challenges have been thank you cards. This one is for Vicki (Thanks Karen for the tip on how to put together the flower).

NSD: MyPinkStamper Challenge 11 - Colors of the Rainbow

This card is for my brother's upcoming birthday. I'm not a fan of primary colors, so it took me a bit to figure out what to do for this challenge.

NSD: MyPinkStamper Challenge 12

I love this little panda. I wish I had the google eyes for him. A principal at my school did me a big favor and I thought this would be the perfect card for her.
