Mistletoe Gillian!




(The sentiment above was created by my generous fellow DT member over at DCD's Christmas Challenge! thanks Lynne! :))

Pucker up y'all! Isn't this image of Gillian the sweetest? She's available at Prairie Fairy Designs and is the theme for this week's challenge over at DCD's Christmas Challenge! I'm going to go hunt for some challenges-there seems to be a lot of Christmas in July contests. I hope you like-I didn't use any flowers or real/faux stitching. I just outlined it with a super fine sharpie pen! Aren't those the best? Can't live without mine! Enjoy your week-end!! xox T-Bear!:)

3-D Project for baby Hailey!




Hi gang! This week's theme at Fairy Fun Fridays is a 3-D project. Please bear with a lot of piccies!! I used the Baby Emily image from Prairie Fairy, of course, for this memory box. I made this for my friend and long-time neighbor when I was growing up, who had a baby girl in June. Inside, I added little ziploc bags for a first curl, first tooth and first earrings! te he! Did u notice the earrings on the baby?I should have put another bag for a suce (pacifier), but I didn't have any that big. Let me know what u think! Have a great week-end! xox Trisha

Kiki and Cuthbert-A Wedding Card!


Hey all! OMG! My internet was giving me major grief this afternoon, so that's why my post is sooo very late. I got asked by a friend to make a wedding card for this week-end. The wedding colors are brown and turquoise. So, I used this cute freebie from Pollycraft of Kiki and Cuthbert and I'm entering in in this week's challenge at Pollycraft(Love and Marriage), and the Beary Sweet challenge (sketch), and the Just Cute Bears challenge (clean and simple) for me it's the color palette (whites). I hope u like! xoxo

Sweet Christmas Wishes!




Happy Saturday everyone! Here is my card for this week's challenge over at DCD's Christmas challenge! The theme is "Sweet Christmas Wishes" and this is one of the images that our sponsor gave us. Iwas very excited to use the snowflake dies from Spellbinders, but I think they would have looked better embossed. Where to get an embossing mat now? I hope u like it!

Aloha Hula Kitty!





Hi gang! As you all may have guessed, my favorite stamps are Prairie Fairy, Magnolias and Pink Cat Studio's. A few months back, I made a Hula Lily card, but Pink Cat Studio has a line of hula digi dancers that I think are sooo cute. However, I wasn't going to make any cards today-I've been crafting like a mad-woman to get ahead in my DT responsibilities, but when I saw these stickers at the local dollar store-I knew that I was going to make it!! So, I'm entering Kaboodle Doodles challenge (Luau theme), Pile it on (Use banners) and Pollycraft(Birthday). I hope u like-Tomorrow-I'm going to post another cutie-stay tuned!!

Hoppy Birthday! A Recipe to Follow!



Happy Monday everyone! I've never posted this late before, but my much neglected house this past weekneeded a good scrubbing and I had tons of wet bathing suits and towels to wash and hang on the line, after a week-end at the beach! I was sooo happy today to see that I made the top 5 at Magnolia Down Under, got some new nesties and two new Tilda stamps in the mail and a Blue Cross refund cheque to boot! What a great start to the week! So, I finally had time to craft this afternoon with one child away at a B-day party! And what do I make-Another B-day card!!LOL. There's tons this month for little school friends!!The image is Billy, from Pink Cat Studio. I had to follow a recipe for this card, as is the Challenge this week at Cards for Men, ( Two Papers, One image and three embellishments-mine are, ribbon, buttons, faux-stitching!!) This was soooo hard to follow! I guess I am really big into glitter, gemmies, ribbons, and DPs, cuz this was so hard and I'm not too happy with it-It looks plain!! I'm also going to enter it at Pollycraft's Challenge this week(Birthday!) and the Crazy Challenge (boys will be boys0Enjoy your week y'all! xoxo Trisha

Arrgh matey! Pirate Edwin!


Hiya! I decided to use this cute fellow last night,seeing as my internet was down as well as our satellite for the TV because of the rainstorm. I needed a B-day card for my son's friend this week-end. So I used this cute Magnolia image of Pirate Edwin image that one of my friend's gave me. The sentiments are from Pink Cat Studio and worked well with this card. I tried to make seaweed with my Martha Stewart punch and added pearls, rubies and some gold to it. I only wish I had a cocktail sword to go between the ribbon-that would have made him cuter!! I'm entering Magnolia Down Under's challenge this week (One for the Boys) and. I hope you like. have a great day!:)

3-D Strawberry Shortcake card!




Hey gang! For the past few days, I've been feeling like "Where's my Mojo?" My cards all seem blahhh, and the same to me-maybe I'm adding too much to them or fussing too much, so this card is kind of a fresh change-no flowers involved. This cute image is a free coloring page on the web. I loved S.S. as a child and she mad a huge comback when my daughter was born in 2002. I painted flowers and made curtains to match a Strawberry/gerber daisy theme in her room. But alas, she's moved on to Bratz, Liv Dolls and her beloved DS! But Mommy still has a bond with Strawberry Shortcake and always will! LOL.I took one of her charms off an old bracelet that she never touches. Of course, I will give it back if she asks...maybe!! I'm entering Lexi's Creations Challenge (3-D) The leaf, watering can, and strawberry on hat are all raised;DU2DS (Outdoor theme), Pollycraft challenge (Sketch), Cute Card Thursday (Let's do fruity!) and Creative Cottage (Summer Surprise)! I hope you enjoy her. Send me some inspiring wishes, please and thanks!xoxo Trish
