For the friend that is receiving this card, she adores really bright colors including hot pink and orange! Hope she will like this one!
I used some wonderful textured papers from K & Company. They aren't anything fancy but they definitely have that extra touch of textured lines that can give a little more life to your cards.

I could stamp this little guy all day long and color him in!! This is a small card approx. 3.5" x 3.5" - love these sizes and it's so super simple to make and enjoy!

Check out the link above and you will see some amazing cards! And it's only Tuesday, I can't imagine what she has in store for the rest of the week!
I thought this colorful card might cheer her up and her family as well. I know as a little girl, I would have wanted this little hula doll....she's so cute!

I think this card would be perfect for mass producing too.....if you just needed a whole bunch of cards to mail out....this is simple and easy to make.....and yet effective too....maybe you could change up the sentiment and the flower just a tad on each one...I still think it would be perfect to make 10 of these all at once! ;)

We first took off for some seafood...one of my fav restaurants....DH and I shared this fancy little california crunch roll dish, it was sooo good...I always love how they fancy up the plate, so aesthetic looking:
Then I just had to have my Atlantic salmon dish...can't live without my fish:

Loved working with hot pink, black, and white.....and I used my favorite Heart Winged Butterfly stamp too.....I played around with the design and the butterfly for awhile before I knew what I wanted to do with it.... and decided it would be neat to fold them in half, and add a little dimension by folding the wing gently with the tip of my finger.

I love the vibrancy of this purple ribbon:
I love the HA digi floral papers....the falling leaf is on one of my favs, I simply just cut out two of the leaf shapes and adhered them to my makeshift stem - which was cut out from an HA green notecard.

I paired this stamp with a soothing color of patterned paper and stamped some leaves onto the white background with a very light shadow ink.
I really liked how the color of the acorn turned out, wasn't sure at first which 'brownish' color to use but I ended up with this smokey color:
Don't forget, that all of these stamps I've been using for the past few days are from the Sept. Monthly Mix Set from Lizzie Anne Designs.....check it out and become a member now in order to begin receiving these sets at a discounted price!

These apples are, once again, my play time with the Monthly Mix set from Lizzie Anne Designs. I just can't stop, having too much fun with this set!
Here is another Halloween themed card I got to play with last night using the new Sept. Monthly Mix called Something to Crow About:
I loved pairing black and yellow together for this particular card! I masked my pumpkins and the flourish stamp to make the pumpkins look like they were sitting on a group of vines.
I also gave my pumpkins some glittery fun:

Remember, these exclusive monthly sets are the equivalent of 2 Little Bits sets, so you get double the amount of seasonal stamps to play with! To learn more about the Monthly Mix sets, please go HERE!
Let's get started with my samples - some fun cards I made:
This is a witches hat that will be used as a placecard for a Halloween party. I hand cut the hat design and used the flourish, the top half of the flower, and the leaf image to decorate the middle of the hat. I finished off the look with LAD's Pupcat Alphabet set. Wouldn't this be fun at your next childs Halloween party? You could also substitute different stamps for a more masculine look for a boys name.
Next, I made a fall themed card with the tree stamp and inked it in different colors. I sponged the edges of the nestie with a delicate green ink for a softer look:

Here's a few fun photos of Chris enjoying a manual peddle train.....he loves this particular amusement park that we go to year round!!!
It's a smaller amusement park - much smaller than Disneyland, BUT he loves the rides, and has gone on just about all of them.....because they are really catered to smaller kids and they really fit his whimsical needs!! This big yellow bus is one he totally LOVES!! This child is NOT afraid of anything it seems! It's also at the same theme park and I pulled this photo from last year but this year, I finally went on the ride with him:
