Have you ever doodled on a project before? It's not my forte, but it's really fun....I did some doodling on the top portion of this card, around the fun looking tree, and the smoke coming out from the car:
So, are you a doodler? Me, sometimes....here and there. I draw sometimes freehand but no major illustration skills. Try doodling on your next card and see what you come up with. Have fun!
Just thought I'd share some cards that were published in the February issue of CARDS Magazine. I used Basic Grey and Making Memories on this card below:
(All Photo Credits: Northridge Publishing).
Lots of Echo Park and Authentique on this card:
And this one has some yummy Hero Arts stamps:
That's it for me for today. I will try to get some new cards up for you soon, I've been battling a cold/flu for a few weeks now, getting better but not really 100% yet. I've been trying to rest my body but don't think I've really been 'resting'...lol! Summer is just so busy, isn't it?
A card I made that I haven't shared yet, I'm always on the look out for new products I haven't tried yet, this was one of the first cards in which I used yummy products from Glitz Design:
Ofcourse, they have come out with some new lines at Summer CHA, haven't looked into it closely yet, I think I just saw glimpses. So what is your favorite 'new' line or product that you have dived into, or want to try? Hope you enjoy the card!
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics and Neenah Solar White.
Patterned Paper: October Afternoon.
Silhouette Sticker and 'Beautiful' Sticker: Glitz Design.
I was looking through all of my photos on my camera and phone.....and I noticed that I have a million of them taken with Christopher eating icecream. I thought to myself, how can that be?? Does he really eat icecream that much? And after much consolidation of all the photos, I came up with my answer, "Apparently so":
Even in the winter months, he is eating icecream with a coat on. Amazing!!! On one of the journaling spots that listed the 'MONTH' - I thought it would be funny to list JAN. THROUGH DEC. - literally.
I listed his favorite flavors on the journaling bit to the right side of the layout. So next time you look through all of your photos, which theme tends to come up the most? That would be you capturing those everyday moments that you may not be aware of!
So I was at Target the other day and I saw the shelves lined with school items...backpacks, pencils, folders, crayons....wow! Didn't we just get out of school? lol. Actually, I know the east coast starts school much earlier than the west coast. We don't start again until Sept. 6 for our district. Anyways, here is a little school themed card that I made a while back:
The little envelope is from K & Co.'s SMASH series. I used real crayons for a fun look and the personalized sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's alphabet set called Claire's ABC's. A little twine and some alpha letter stickers finish off the look.
Sharing a tiny little card with you today, you ever have a die that has been sitting around for a while but have never used? This pennant die from Spellbinders finally got some love:
With very little space to work with, I added a sentiment sticker right to the middle of the cardstock and some flower stickers, and a big button with twine. Hope you are all having a great day and are keeping cool!

I have a baby layout to share today, it's very delicate in color and please excuse the graininess of the photo, I had a very troublesome photo shoot today, sigh! But, you get the idea of it all...baby...softness, etc.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!

I never showed this layout before, seems like eons ago when I made it for a call, super fast layout and literally I made it under 20 minutes, so fun!!
The papers are from Bo Bunny and I just simply adhered multiple strips horizontally and used my Cuttlebug to cut out various sizes of circles and plopped them onto the page. I didn't really want to do any journaling, just wanted the fun colors and the existing words on the paper to do the talking.
Hope it puts some color into your day, or night...lol....I'm off to bed in my part of the world...Nite all!
Bo Bunny, EK Success, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Cuttlebug.
My card for today, I needed something pretty and feminine, my day wasn't all that great and I needed some serious paper therapy, so this card makes me feel better! My new favorite thing to do is wrap a big doily around some cardstock, instead of over it, I wrap it underneath some paper and leave the flaps slightly open on the ends. I really love the frilly look it gives. Wishing everyone a very happy 4th! Enjoy.
