Make a Wish

Hi crafters!!
Here's a quick little card I created for my post at the Joy's Life Design Team blog. I started with a sketch from the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge, then I found this super cute shooting star image at the Silhouette online store.  
I thought the Joy's Life sentiment worked perfectly, and I love that adorable little Peachy Keen face!!

Here is the list of supplies used:
Image: Shooting Star with Moon & Clouds (Silhouette Online Store)
Sentiment Stamp: Joy's Life "You're So Punny" stamp set
Peachy Keen Face Stamp: February SOTM and Erkle and Merkle
Misc: PTI True Black Ink, twine, white gel pen

Happy egg hunting - Guest Diva

Hello crafters!
I am super excited today because I was asked to be a Guest Diva over at the Die Cuttin Divas Weekly Challenge Blog.  The challenge today is to create a project using ribbon and embossing. Now I realize this should be pretty easy to do right??? Well, I have not used ribbon on a card in over 6 months or more!! I am more of a twine and hemp kind of gal. :)  It's not that I don't love the way ribbon looks on a project, it just I CAN NOT tie a bow to save  my life! As you will see on my card today!! LOL!! 
See what I  mean??
 I really LOVE my card, but that bow is definitely lacking!! :)
I hope you will head over to the Die Cuttin Divas Weekly Challenge Blog and join in on the fun!!

Here is what I used to create my card:
Card Base: Silhouette Online Store (a Lori Whitlock file) Card Kit Ornate Flower
Bunny with wagon: KaDoodle Bug Design (Kristi W Design) retired file
Peachy Face Stamp: Cute and Cuddly Asst PK440
Stamped Sentiment: My Creative Time "Color Me Happy" stamp set
Paper: Core'dinations
Kraft paper: SU
Misc: ribbon, twine, rhinestones and white gel pen

Challenges entered:
Cameo Creations Challenge Blog: Happy Easter

Welcome to the Joy's Life "Inspired By" Blog Hop!!

You should have just come over from the super talented Debbie at Bugjuiced.
If you just happened to stop by today and would like to join us from the beginning, head on over to Joy's Life.
So, for this hop, we were asked to create a project and share a photo of what inspired us. Well, I had these pictures on my computer to email to a friend on her birthday. (She is dog lover, so I thought they would be perfect!) Anyhow, I came across them a few days ago and they are what inspired my card!

Those dogs just crack me up!!!

So, here is my "Inspired By" card:
I figured with the way my brain operates these days, I am bound to forget a birthday, and probably sooner than later, so this would be good card to have on hand!!  LOL!!

I put the doggie on an Action Wobble to make it a little more festive:

And here is a close up a stamp from one of Joy's BRAND NEW stamp sets PUNNY ANIMALS:

And here is a stamp from Yummy Puns:
