It's time for a new challenge at Craft Your Passion. Wow! The entries last week were awesome! This week's a bit tougher though. The theme is
Let's Play Dress Up
Create a project with an image that's dressed in a costume. Just like when you played dress up as a kid, your image get's to play pretend. Stampfairy (this week's sponsor) generously donated Lenny Ladybug for me to use. Isn't he just so cute?!
I love any excuse to use my ladybug ribbon. Every time I see the roll, I giggle. Be sure to stop by Craft Your Passion this week and leave the rest of the DT some love. Their projects this week are so creative. I love how even though we used the same image, the cards look so different.

It's Crafting with Cutters day at My Paper Crafting. This week's theme is Father's Day inspired. The theme is
For Men-Masculine Projects
Check out this stud in my scrapbook page:
Yowza! He's so hot! Sorry ladies, he's taken. Ha ha, he would be mortified if he knew that I was talking about him on my blog. So let's change the subject, hmmm? I used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. The paper and stickers are by K&Co. Get some more masculine inspiration from the rest of the DT HERE. Thanks for dropping by!

I just love any excuse to get out my TAWS stamps and play. Their Be Inspired challenge gave me a great reason to have some fun crafting.
I was inspired by the mint and yellow colors of the ice cream, the dark brown of the cola, and the retro feel of the whole picture. I found some retro paisley and floral paper that I've had for a while. I hesitated before I cut it up because I didn't want to use up all my pretty paper. Does anyone else have that problem? I've had that paper for around 5 years and still wanted to keep hoarding it. There needs to be a 12 step program for paper lovers...
Last night, I dreamed that I was at the circus and watched a seal balance things on its nose. So I tried balancing the sentiment on his nose on the card. My next card will have him balancing birthday presents!
The seal is from Castaways and the "for you" is from Jibber Jabber.
After the seal, I was on a roll. Plus I noticed that the paper was double-sided and I definitely needed to showcase both sides (since I forced myself to cut it up). So here's a bonus card using Bird Brain and Jibber Jabber.

It's Monday. Time for a new challenge at Craft Your Passion. This week's theme is
I made a card for my dad from my husband and I. My hubby and dad are really close so I figured the "two" sentiment worked for the card. We sometimes cause my dad some gray hairs, so when I saw this image I had to use it. Plus my dad loves dogs and I love cats-it's been a compromise my whole life.
Here's a better look at the sentiment.
Can't wait to see what you made for the men in your life.
Just having some fun with digi stamps this week. Well actually I made this one last week for Digi Haven's butterfly challenge, but never uploaded it to my blog. Luckily, their challenge this week is Anything Goes, so it still works!
The paper is by Jillibean, image by Birdie Brown, and stamp by My Favorite Things.
What have you been working on this week?
