Monkey biz!!

hey everyone..
so I am still slowly working on my dd - Cuba trip book and have been trying to get into my craft room not just to complete DT things...
Here is a LO I did for Sarah's book and because the challenges inspired me..
excuse the first photo... wow... I promise I was not drinking when I took it.. lol 
I used the Bo Bunny line - Zip a dee doodle paper, thickers for the letters (rain boots), my one and only large folder to emboss in my cuttlebug and and my cricut for the large circle (art philosophy from CTMH)
And some close ups...


As promised here are the challenges that inspired me:

Today my daughter and I are heading into Toronto to visit with family. I love family time.   We also have another great challenge for you today at pile it on... Here is my inspiration for you
A day for daisies is sponsoring and I love this cute little bunny!!
I coloured him with my Copics, embossed the back layer with my ctmh striped embossing folder
Misting and dripped with differnt inks that I had in my stash, and my newest thing... Gelatos embossed paper and rubbed them along to get the pattern.  Wow this was a super messy card for me. Usually I am a CAS kinda girl but I do like how it turned out and love the colours!

Hoppy chicky Easter

Hi everyone...
I have an Easter card that I would like to share with you all.  
Made with my new embossing folder from CTMH - stripes - which you can purchase here.
This cute little chick and flowers are from the set "hoppy Easter"
I used my left over paper from the Sarita pack - the card is easy as I made it for a group of ladies that don't have much experience yet... but I am working on them ;)
and a side view
Of course the challenges that inspired me to create - now what would I do with out you all!!

Thanks oodles!

Hey everyone...
I have been busy with a couple of card classes last week and of course I drew on the inspiration of the challenges out there...
here is one of the carding using the new stamp set from CTMH Oodles of Doodles which you can get from me if you would like to purchase. 
also if you join CTMH this month you will receive a free cricut cartridge!!!  
Seriously how cool is that!!  If your interested please let me know.
ohhh back to my card... here it is 
and a side view... the little smudge of black was not there before the class!
One of the cute little "young at heart" ladies must have had the black in a bit too close to the sample!  lol
The little circles and banner was cut with my cricut art philosophy and all using scraps!  yeah me!
