John Deere birthday card.

Hello and welcome to FRIDAY!! 
Hooray, hooray!

My friend asked for a card for a soon to be 2 yr. old little guy in her life.  He totally loves tractors and that's what she wanted as a theme for his birthday card.

I don't have any tractor stamps so I created my own through paper piecing.  

Don't bother asking...I probably couldn't recreate this if I wanted to...nothing was measured, everything was free-handed.  I know he's only two but I hope he likes it!


I love this verse from Stampin' Up for cards for young people.


I made the cool back tire using a Spellbinders scalloped circles die and then trimmed off the tip of the scallops.

New Ai People Launch!! Yay! My favorite!!

Hello Ai fans!

Today over at Art Impressions there is a new release!  They're here!  The new Ai People and what fun they are!  I'm lucky enough to be sharing the Birthday Love Set (sku# 4529).




I decided that she'd be perfect to give as a gift to the tennis lover in your life.
I also used  WC Cloudline (Sku#H2724).


Don't forget to play along with the Ai Challenge this week...Humorous or Punny cards.




Here's a close up of the tag before I attached it.
This is the verse that comes with the set.

I hope you like her as much as I do.

You're Spectacular!! from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!  

Today I'm sharing a Congratulations card that could be used for many different occasions.
This would be great for a graduation, maybe for a teen who made a sports team or accomplished something academically or an adult who received a promotion etc. 

This stamp set is called  Spectacular Set (Sku#4290).


I absolutely love puns so this set really spoke to me.
"Spectacular...get it??"


I thought that stars worked really well with the theme of this card.

Art Impressions Note-Ables release! I got TEDDY!!

Hello Ai fans!

Today over at Art Impressions there is a fun new release unlike any they've had before.  These are the cutest little critters you've ever seen.  They're called Note-Ables and they're made to have their hands "hold" the bottom portion of your card or tag closed.

I've used the Teddy Note-Able for my tag.  I have a co-worker who is pregnant with a girl and I'll use this on her gift.



In this set you get the Teddy Bear and the Hugs to You! verse.


Don't forget to play along with our Fancy Folds challenge this week!

My Backyard Boss! By Reneé Matarese

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a masculine card. (I actually made this for my husband)
I used a stamp for one of my favorite Art Impressions line, the Ai Heroes.  This one is called Backyard Boss (Sku#4377).

Fittingly, I photographed the card in my backyard.

Wear it in style!

Hello Ai fans!

There's nothing better than a new release from Art Impressions is there?
This week we saw some new Christmas images but today I'm sharing one of the Ai People.  These fun images are some of my very favorite over at Ai!

 The set I'm sharing is the Wear it in Style set.


She's fun isn't she?  I think we all know someone like this.  For me,  it's a crazy co-worker.  When you work in an elementary school some people take full advantage of any holiday or event to deck themselves out.  I can totally see her showing up like this when she turns 50! (that's her next big milestone)


Here's the inside of my birthday card.
