Driving Me Quackers

I have been fighting my Mojo lately and it is making me NUTS! My great friend, Cindy, is always such a sweetie and gives me encouragement to get back at it. I got into a couple swaps, which I haven't done in a LONG LONG time, ( since my mom passed) and was forced to make a couple cards. This is one of them. I think he turned out adorable, and when Cindy said she liked it, I was THRILLED!
This little guy is part of a set called Cute Critters by Clear Dollar Stamps.  The footprints on the DP is also one of the stamps in the set...kinda cute, eh?  I will be sending this off tomorrow and will enter it in the following challenges:
Crafty Calendar - Things with Wings
Simply Create - Fly with Us
The Crafty Pad - Bold/Bright or Soft Pastels
The Corrosive Challenge - Slippery When Wet
The Poodles Parlour - Come Fly With Me

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you all had a WONDERFUL weekend!

Gimme a Little Kiss

This week at Come and Get It Challenges, we are doing a Technique Challenge....KISSING! No, not smooching with your lips ( though, that is FUN, too) but kissing with your stamps! HERE  is a fantastic Tutorial done by Splitcoast Stampers, and Leslie has one posted on the Come and Get It Blog, as well.
I used Stampin' Up's Best Blossom set, inked with Pretty in Pink, then kissed it with a swirl inked with Melon Mambo. To be honest, I have never done this technique, and once I found a set I could use ( I figured I have over 3000 stamps, and VERY few solid ones...geesh) it was SO FUN! I LOVE the look, and will be doing it again, I am sure!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Please come play our Kissing Challenge with us at Come and Get It Challenges  this week! We would LOVE to see how you would kiss it up!  LOL

Get Well Sketch Challenge

Happy Father's Day to all the Daddies out there! I am a total Daddy's Girl, so not being with my Dad today is hard, but I do thank God I still have him, and was able to call and wish him a Great Day!
This card was made following the Sketch Challenge over at Come and Get It Challenges. It is a totally versatile sketch, as you will see by the various DT cards. I just LOVE how one sketch can have so many different looks~
There are a couple of  other Challenges out there this week that I will enter my card into:

Another one for Daddy

I am SO NOT  a good masculine card maker, but I have been having fun with the last couple I have done. This card I have done for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. I thought it would make a really neat Dad's Card. The sentiment is exactly how I feel about my Daddy. He and Mom married when I was 3, and he has been Daddy ever since...that is a LOT of  years...LOL!
There are so many other challenges out there this week for Father's Day and special men, that I will enter this card into the following as well:

The Crazy Challenge - Father's Day
Lexi's Creations - Father's Day or Man's Card
There's Magic in The Air - Masculine
The Paper Variety -For The Guys
Stampin' Royalty - Celebrate Dad
Fab 'n Funky - Magnificent Men

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope your week is going great!
