Primary Doodle

Doodle This, Doodle That...Doodle all the Day!!

I love my Doodle Factory stamps!!! They are such cute, fun, and unique stamps! They could possibly be my favorite stamps, okay they are my favorite stamps!!!

Well over at Starving Artist they are having a make a Swedish square card. What is a Swedish card? Well it's square, lots of color, lots of pattern papers, the use of chipboard, staples, and buttons or all of the above! These are really fun cards to make and look at. So here is my entry....

I call it my Primary Doodle! I used buttons and chipboard. I took my chipboard frame and stamped my glue on and then sprinkled with black glitter. I loved the bold primary pattern paper and of course I used Doodle Factory stamps.

Twice in one day, oh my!!!

I know what your thinking...twice in one day...what has the world come to...not to worry your precious head I will still post at least once next week. I know you are relieved now...ahhhh breath in, now don't you feel better! I do. I hope you were doing the breathing exercises.......:o).

Well I wanted to show my little gift sets. These have been works in progress for a little while. I would work on them and then put them away because things would come up. This first one is my berry set. I have this wonderful stamp set from Papertrey Inc. called My Punny Valentine. It is just the cutest! Well I've been thinking of this idea for a while and finally got around to making my vision into a reality. In the gift set I made 4 cards with 6 envelopes (you never know when you just might mess up an addy), a little note pad, a magnetic clip an a little strawberry just because. I had saved a plastic strawberry container to put it all in.

The next set I had gotten a wooden box with handles. I painted it and then applies paper to the outside. I had used some stamps from Stampin Up and Close To My Heart as well. I made 6 little 'thank you' cards and envelopes to match. I think it turned out really cute!

Bike Rodeo

It was that time again at school. Time for the bike rodeo!!! The girls were super excited and couldn't wait to test their skills. They did wonderful too! Lachlan had a few falls but she did great and didn't shed one tear! I think I was most proud of that in itself!!! Zoey had a great time too! She did a fantastic job! I was so proud of the girls!

Here are a few things I have been doing as well. I made this cute little clip for Zoey. It went perfect with her Hannah Montana shirt she was wearing....

And here is a card I made a few days ago...

I had made that card for my secret sister on Splitcoast. I hope she likes it!

Shame on me...

I have to appologize for not posting lately. I guess life has gotten in the way of blogging. I have been getting rather crafty lately. I need to download my creations from the camera. I plan on doing that this weekend. I have made a promise with myself. I would try and post once a week. I figure I have 7 days, that should be plenty of time, right? Between being a full time mommy, gymnastics, girl scouts, soccer and all those extra little things that pop up I should have time. So check back on Saturday and hopefully I will have some of the things I have been working on. Here are a few cards I have made since last time...
