Sand Pail for Maddy Cakes


So my little Madison is at the beach with my parents, again. Lucky girl. Their trip is a little longer this time because they are stopping in South Carolina to visit my sister too. I'm a little jealous. Deacon and I were going to go with them to see my sister and then take a train back home after  a few days, but we just couldn't get it all worked out in time. 

Anyway, I made her a few little surprises to take on her trip. One of them was this little Sand Pail Treat Box. I filled it with little treats she could eat in the car on her long drive. 
 

The image is Beach Monkey Sand from Bugaboo Stamps.

I sure am going to miss my little Maddy Cakes but I had fun making all the little surprises I sent with her.  She'll have 2 more surprises in her suitcase when she gets there!

Beach Crab


Today there is a new Photo Inspiration challenge up on the Catch the Bug Blog. I used the adorable Crab Suntan image on my card. 


 I colored the little crab and then coated him in glossy accents so he would be a shiny crab! I added some sparkle to the sun and the hello with my Wink of Stella pen.  The hello was cut on my Silhouette, 

And here is the photo that inspired this card:


And just a reminder, there's still a few days left to get all the great Bugaboo images for 50% off! 



Stop by the Catch the Bug blog to see how the rest of the DT was inspired by this photo, then be sure to link up your own project for a chance to win some Bugaboo images, we can't wait to see what you create.

Never Too Old...



Today I have a card I made using the Skate Chick digi by Kenny K. I just love it, this would be me if I tried something like this, lol. Only I wouldn't look nearly as good as this chick does. 


I created the sentiment in Silhouette Studio (inside it says "..it just might hurt more at your age"). The flourish was also cut on the Silhouette. 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:





Aloha Friday Challenge #28

Aloha!

I'm here today with some mid-challenge inspiration for you. Our Favorite Color Combo Challenge is well under way, but you still have a week to enter.

Our fabulous sponsor this time is Dilly Beans Digi Stamps


I chose Penelope Bird Cage to use on my card, along with one of my favorite color combinations, Bright Blue and Bright Green. 



The Swing Card was cut on my Silhouette as was the "hello" sentiment. I colored the image with my Spectrum Noirs and added just a touch of stickles to her wings for a little sparkle. I colored the flowers with the same blue I used on the image and sprayed them with a little shimmer spritz and added green enamel dots in the centers. 



I think this is a really cute and bright card, I'll probably send it to my husband's Grandma along with some new pictures of the kids. 

I would like to enter this card in the following challenge:

Enter our challenge for a chance win some adorable Dilly Bean images and be sure to visit our sponsor and leave them some love too.
