Snow Friends!

Howdy DDS Fans!
Well....... Winter is still here so that means we still have snow here! When I saw this cute digital image from Digi Doodle Studios called "Lucia & Icelyn", it just reminded me of the fun times my Sister and I had building our own snowmen! I always secretly hoped they would come alive LOL!
After I printed my image on Copic Xpress-It paper I decided to cut around it with a heart die to represent my fond memories. I coloured the page with my Copic Sketch markers and used papers from the Doodlebug Polar Pals 6x6 collection. I added the sentiment using the  "Snow Wishes" digital sentiment set. I don't know why my camera doesn't pick up the glitter but trust me there are Stickles on all the mint green areas! I got a bit carried away with the ink splatters LOL but hey, they are fun to do!!

Coffee Please!

Hello Ai Fans!
This poor guy sure is all tangled up, but rest assured nothing that "a coffee" can't fix! This is the funny "Giraffe" set from the "Zoo Crew" over at Art Impressions!
I am using paper from the Doodlebug "At The Zoo" 6x6 collection. I cut a piece of the paper with a Stitched Border frame and added some enamel dots for a fun element to my card! I also inked all the edges of my paper with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. After I coloured the "Giraffe", I realized he was too tall to use a die cut shape around him for my A2 card size. So I pulled out my trusty Brother Cut N Scan and used the machine to "fussy Cut" around him. Now he it perfectly on my card!

Just Married!

Hello HH & OCS Fans!
Don't you love a good Wedding! There is something about seeing a Bride that just gives me a "warm & fuzzy" feeling! This is "Just Married" from High Hopes Stamps. Off the Happily Married couple goes to start their new life together!
I decided to use paper from the Simple Stories The Story of Us 6x6 collection! I love the blacks and golds in this collection. I used the HH "Love Never Fails" sentiment on the front along with a few YNS Gold Gumdrops. You can't tell in the picture but the light grey parts on the card are actually coloured with Wink of Stella's Silver glitter pen. The bride and her flowers have Spectrum Noir Glitter pen on them as well.
I used die cuts from the SS The Story of Us Bits & Pieces set on the inside.

Featured Designer!

Hi DDS Fans!
I am beyond excited and so honoured that Dina Gerner over at Digi Doodle Studios has made me a "Featured Designer".  She created this adorable likeness of me with this digital stamp called "Cheri's Story Time"! When I opened the email containing the news and stamp it brought tears to my eyes! She has captured all the things that are most important to me! My Granddaughter Jacqualine and my 3 fur babies, Ally, Buster and Stella! Although Hubby would joke and ask where is he LOL?
With the theme of the stamp being "story time",  immediately in my head I pictured reading a fairytale to Jacqualine. I knew the Echo Park Perfect Princess 6x6 collection would be perfect for my card! I used various papers form the collection and layered them with matching cardstock. It's hard to see but all the pink things have Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen added to them. A ribbon bow and some enamel dots finished off my card!
I used more papers from the "Perfect Princess" on the inside as well.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E55, E57, E59
Pinks: RV00, RV02, RV04, RV06

 Dina thank you so much for capturing me so well and all the most important things to me! I absolutely love the "Cheri's Story Time" stamp!!

Hi Ai Fans!
Oh Poor "Madge" from Art Impressions! It sure looks like she's had a rough day and is at the end of her rope! There are days that I feel exactly like poor Madge and I am sure you all can relate LOL!
I made my card base from grey cardstock and added layers of paper from the BBP Miss Teagen Sue collection. A few coordinating enamel dots finished it all off!
I think the "Childproofed" sentiment just makes the whole card! I love the funny sentiments Art Impressions has!!

Elephant Slider!

Hi Ai Fans!
It's the 2nd week of the Ai "Anything Goes" Challenge! I decided to make an interactive card. They are just so much fun for the recipient and fun to make! This is the "Elephant Slider" set from Art Impressions. I made one card the "traditional" way using the Ai Slider die. It's so cute when you pull the ribbon as the little elephant runs to the cupcakes and a hidden message is revealed. Then I decided to use just the stamped images and create another card. That's what is great about this set as you can use it several different ways!
The slider sets come with the images, sentiments and dies to cut the images out with! All you need is the slider die to make assembly super easy!
My paper choice this time is from the Photoplay Party Boy & Party Girl collections. Super fun patterns and colours especially for birthdays!
As I mentioned, instead of making a "slider" I put the elephant on a Mini Action Wobble for a twist. Just as cute either way you use them!

Just Because......

Howdy All!
Now I am a big dog fan but when I saw this adorable Kitty stamp I just knew it would make an adorable card! Meet "Kitty's Flutter Friends" from High Hopes Stamps! My Girlfriends just got a new Kitten named Willow and oh my she is just adorable!

Of course the paper from Doodlebugs Kitten Smitten 6x6 collection was perfect for this cutie! I stamped my image and then masked it off. Using Distress Oxide ink in Salty Ocean and a cloud border stencil I created the sky background. I did also use Distress ink(Mowed Lawn) on the grass but wasn't happy with it, so I added a bunch of grass on top with my Copic markers. The "Just Because" is also a HH sentiment!

Copics Used:
C1, C2, C4, C5, C6

Hello DDS Fans!
Today is so exciting!!!! It's Release day over at Digi Doodle Studios! Dina has done it again with this Release called "Boy Crazy"!  Yippee...... some boys to go with all our adorable girls! Please let me introduce you to "Milo"! He's so cute I just want to hug him!! Don't those glasses just make him super cute!
I decided to use paper from the Echo Park Blowing Kisses 6x6 collection. Milo is just perfect for Valentine's Day but I think he also could be used for any occasion! It's hard to see in my picture but all the hearts have some Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen added to them. I also added glossy accents to his glasses so they have a real look to them.
I decorated the inside and am waiting to add a sentiment when I figure out who is going to receive this card from me! Sometimes it's nice to personalize the sentiment to the person!

Bon Voyage!

Hello Ai Fans!
Oh how I wish this was my Hubby and myself heading somewhere sunny!! I have to admit, Winter is not my favourite season LOL! This is the super cute "Pack Your Bags" set from Art Impression!
I decided that papers from the Echo Park "Go See & Explore" 6x6 collection were perfect for this travelling pair! After I coloured the images with my Copic markers, I cut them out with my Brother Cut N Scan. I popped them up with some foam squares and added a sentiment from the set to finish off my card!
Here's the inside with another sentiment from the "Pack Your Bags" set.
Of course I just had to make another card using the lady and suitcase image. The set comes with 9 different sized images and 6 sentiments! Think of all the combinations you can create with!

Sorry I Missed It!

Hi HH & OCS Fans!
I'm just popping in to share another adorable image from High Hopes Stamps! This is "Beary Sweet Sign"! Isn't he just the sweetest bear ever!!!! The stamp comes blank which is awesome as you can add a sentiment for any occasion. How versatile and what great value! I love when you can use a stamp for multiple reasons!
No matter how organized I am, I always seem to miss someone's Birthday along the way! I made this card to have on hand for such an occasion! I'm using papers from my stash this time (a New Year's Resolution LOL). A simple layout and design but cute none the less! The sentiment is from HH called "Sorry I Missed It".
On the inside I used the High Hopes sentiment "Belated Birthday".
