Arrgh Matey!

I apologize for not posting or keeping you up to date. I just became overwhelmed and couldn't enjoy stamping. I would spend time in my scrap room and just stare and everything or organize it but I just couldn't make anything. On the rare occasion that I would make something I just couldn't bring myself to blog about it. My goal this year was to start blogging again. I've done it! I don't know how long this will last but this is a start for me.

February is a big birthday month in our family actually Feb to July is but most birthdays fall during Feb to March. I made 5 cards in one week and that's a big thing yay!

My card today was for my nephews birthday he turned 7 on the 11th he was having a pirate birthday so I pulled out my pink cat studio stamp set billy and used the pirate I colored him in with my copics and sponged around with my inks using my label 1 nesties as a mask so you could see the white edge. I colored in the sword with my sakura gel pen. This ribbon was beige I used my copic to color it blue I thought it turned out pretty cute. Well tell me what ya think and have a great day.

What I used

Stamps-Billy plate 1 (pinkcat studio)
cs-crumb cake night of navy whisper white(stampin' up)
dp-all about boys( dcwv)
embellishments-brads(ctmh), ribbon(ctmh), sakura gel pen , copics, labels 1 nestablitiy's(spellbinders).

Love is in the air

This weekend Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is celebrating their customers by having their first Customer Appreciation Blog Hop (a list of blog hop requirements is at the link). The theme is Love is in the Air. Every participant who posts a project on their blog will receive a FREE digital stamp and it is so cute. In haven't posted in almost 2 years and this was just the motivation I needed to get back to posting again.

For my card I used sweet 'n sassy stamp so sweet cocoa he is just the cutest little guy. I colored him in with my copics. I paper pieced the cupcake wrapping. I then cut the image out with my square nesties. The cute saying came with the stamp set too. I don't even know what to say it kind of hard just jumping in again it's been so long, I hope I can keep it up. I do have more to post maybe during the week I can sneak in another post.
Thanks for stopping by.( I should get better at this after I remember how to do everything again.)
