Wear Denim Card

It has been a while since I created with the Snarky Stampers but the new challenge "D is for Denim" sounded like fun.  I remembered a DCWV paper stack I had which only had denim themed papers.  The only problem was I couldn't remember exactly where it was.  But as luck would have it, I found it without having to search too long.  I found a quote I liked  and stamped it using Hampton Art alphabet stamps except for the word denim.  I used a font and my Silhouette Cameo to create the word diecut (love the weld feature on the Silhouette).  I had a sheet of vintage cowgirls printed out from Lunagirl cause you know how I love to make those vintage images "speak."  ;)  Thanks for stopping by and remember to "stay cool."  I had to take my dog out a few minutes ago and nearly melted.  My opinionated cowgirl is going to join in on the fun at:

Craftaholics R Us -- Anything Goes
Cut It Up Challenge -- Use Your Favorite Color (My favorite is red!!!)

CARD RECIPE:
Alphabet Stamps -- Hampton Art
Ink Pad -- Clearsnap (Strawberry)
Vintage Image -- Lunagirl (Cowgirls #2)

A Note of Thanks Card

After doing my early morning walk (to beat the heat), I felt like creating a card!  It was the first time in a while because this summer has been a busy one.  Plus it has a hot one which seems to drain my creative mojo.   I did want to enter the fun challenge at Cupcake Inspirations though because it reminded me of a new stamp set I had by Sugarpea Designs called Class Act.   I'll also enter it at Send A Smile 4 Kids where the theme is Anything Goes.  Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay cool (which means you have to get up pretty early here if you want to go outside....wink).  ;)

Ink Pad -- Clearsnap (Wicked Black)
Markers -- Copic and Spectrum Noir
Word Die Cut -- Silhouette Design Store (Thanks by Echo Park)

Cactus "Grow" Card

  This summer is turning out to be a very HOT one in my neck of the woods.  You would think this means more time spent in my craft room but sadly this is not the case.  I did manage to enjoy some card making time after lunch today though (all the while basking in glorious air conditioning).  ;)  Cactus like lots of sun and warm weather so the potted cacti on my card are flourishing!  ;)  They want to join in on the fun at the following challenges:

"Stuck With Me" Birthday Card

You know it is bad when you feel like you are sneaking in your craft room to create a card.  ;)  I'm still working on getting my house back in order after the stripping wallpaper and paint job project upstairs.  I sometimes wonder if I will ever get everything clean and back in place.  I wanted to join in on the fun at AAA Cards Clean and Simple Challenges because they are celebrating their fourth birthday.  I had a new image stamp by Hampton Art which I was wanting to get "inky" and decided to use it for a birthday card.   Thanks for stopping by and guess I better get back to work cleaning and putting things where they go.

I'm linking this card up to the following challenges:

Be Happy Coffee Card

I have a final card to share for the Spring + Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  I love the stamped sentiment on this one by Riley & Company.  Only my sentiment should read "Get Up, Get Coffee and Start Cleaning Up Sheetrock Dust.  (Wink.)  Yep, still at it....afraid I will be doing this for weeks.  You think I am exaggerating?  Nope.  I keep telling myself the end result will be worth it....I do like the wallpaper gone and walls painted but not the huge mess it created getting that way.  Feel welcome to grab a vacuum and visit anytime.  ;)  There are some beautiful coffee themed cards at the blog hop.  I'm enjoying looking at them at the end of the day with my feet up (after cleaning, cleaning, cleaning).  Go check them out!  Already looking forward to the next one and you can be sure I won't be painting.  ;)
