Birthday Wishes for Somebuggy to love ☺

Hiya! My friend Drew asked me to make his wife a birthday card, and here it is. I can share it now because yesterday was her birthday and she got her card. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TERESA! ☺ I know it pretty much looks like a Valentine's day card, but after I saw what he wanted me to write inside, I HAD to make it super "lovey"!!! I cut the "lovebug" and the birthday hat from my Simply Charmed cricut cartridge. I ADORE this cartridge! Just too cute!
I stamped the faces with the Christmas Character Face Assortment from PeachyKeenStamps.com. Yep, Christmas faces on a lovebug and birthday hat! The birthday wishes stamp is from PaperTreyInk.com and the sombuggy to love is from My Pink Stamper. I hope you're having a GREAT day! ☺

Hog Wild

Hi Ya'll! ☺ For today's card I used the Country Life cricut cartridge. It has some super cute images on it, and when I saw these pigs I knew they NEEDED PeachyKeen faces! So, I used the Critter Faces Small for their lil' faces. And I decided the sun needed a face too! I used the Cutie Pie Face Assortment for it. 
The "Hog Wild" sentiment is from the Punny-licious set by My Pink Stamper. I hope you like my lil' card for today.  Hope you're happier than a hog in mud!

♥ Nikki ♥

Hey there guys and gals! I think you're all super groovy in a far out way! For today's card I used the Hippie Surfer Van die from The Scrapping Cottage. It actually has super cute flowers and a surfboard too, but I chose not to use those this time. I wanted my van to be more 70's rather than surfery. Ya dig? I just kept this card really basic, but I just ♥ that cute little van!
I used silver glittery glazed brads for the hubcaps. I hope you're have a great day...and that ain't no jive turkey! ☺☺☺

Whooooooo loves you?

Hello! I have been DYING to post this card for a long time! I made this for my Uncle to give to my Aunt for her birthday and her birthday has come and gone, so I can post it now! ☺ Actually her birthday and my husband's were both on Sunday. I would post my hubby's card, but there was an unfortunate diet coke explosion on our road trip over the weekend...and, well, the card kinda bit the dust! LOL...But I digress...back to this card! I was able to make it really bulky because my Nana drove the card back to Illinois with her so it could be hand delivered. I used my fiskars scalloped border punch to punch a strip of paper. I then scored in between all the scallops and did an accordion fold with the strip. Then I busted out the hot glue gun and put glue in the center to make my very own medallion. I think it turned out pretty darn cool! ☺
I cut the owl from the Hoot 'n' Holler cricut lite cartridge. I stamped his hootin' adorable face with the Critter Faces Small from PeachyKeenStamps.com. Well, I hope you like my card...It's actually one of my favorite cards EVER!

PeachyKeen Challenge # 35

Hello! It's challenge time again. For this challenge we have a sketch and a color combo to follow. I have to admit that I goofed and used orange rather than apricot. OOPS! We all make mistakes, right?! ☺ I flipped the sketch vertically for my card, and here it is.................
For my card I used the Cute Kitties stamp set. I just LOVE that set! I stamped the paw prints from the set with versamark ink and then used ultra fine clear embossing powder to heat emboss my own patterned paper.

I hope you will hop over to the Challenge Blog and play along with us! There will be one judged winner this time and that lucky person will  get a $30 gift certificate to PeachyKeenStamps.com. ☺

Happy Stamping!

♥ Nikki ♥

p.s. I used my FAV circle and scalloped circle from Winter Woodland. ☺
p.p.s. The sentiment and all paper are from PaperTreyInk.com

where flowers bloom, so does hope

Hiya peeps! Here is another card that I will be donating to my friend's breast cancer fundraising event. I used Simply Charmed for the flower, and it would have been cute if I had just used the face the cartridge cuts...but it is ADORABLE with the addition of the super cute PeachyKeen face! ☺ This face is from the Basic Paper Doll Face Assortment.
Sorry for the quick posting, but I gotta get back to my card assembly line! ☺ Hey, these cards aren't going to make themselves! hahahahahah

Kindergarten Card...and Coloring page ☺

Hello all! The UPS man brought me the new cricut cartridge called Simply Charmed yesterday and boy is it CUTE! My friend Trina's lil guy is starting kindergarten soon, so I made this card for him. ☺ The crayons are from Simply Charmed and the kindergarten sign is from the Locker Talk cartridge.
I popped up the top layer to the crayon box and also did two score lines to make like a little flap. Just kept this one pretty simple, but I bet lil' Mason will get a kick out of it! Geez I remember being TERRIFIED on my first day of kindergarten, and the pictures I have are solid proof of my memory! LOL

Have a GREAT day! I'm off to PLAY! ☺

♥ Nikki ♥

And PLAY I did! I picked up some cricut markers a while back and decided to give them a go. So, I designed a coloring page in my gypsy to go with the kindergarten card. I bet Mason will enjoy coloring it in! ☺
The faces I used are from the Fun Kiddie Face Assortment from PeachyKeenStamps. I just ADORE these sweet little faces!

Ok, bye again! hehehehehe
