Summer Lovin'

Good Morning! I made this card using the following recipe for Monday Mania over at Club Anya & Friends. Last week MM was hosted by Margie using the following recipe was to use kraft cs, use green, one dp, and 1 embellishment +/- ribbon. Here is my take on Margie's recipe. I used kraft paper for the border, sand, and tree also on the coconut but color it brown with my copic. For the sand part I actually sprinkle some real sand on it, to make that effect. Got the coconut tree using my cricut. My embellishment is the beach mat it's actually a piece of cloth and added a ribbon on it. I use Cheeky Rockabilly and altered Dylan and Paul but added flip flops from HG-Sing. This card is for my hubby we are celebrating our anniversary today. Sentiment state You & Me and inside of the card I put "paradise". Since we dated during summer time we spend our summer mostly on the beach as he loves the beach. Also entering this card for Diedrich Dare -photo inspiration (summer theme). Well that's all for now. Have a great day!

TGF.... Dads & Dudes Contest

Hello all and Happy Sunday! Hope you guys are enjoy the rest of your weekend. Well last week TGF was hosting a contest for Dad's and Dudes in honoring Father's Day. Anyway my son always like to help and join in the fun just as long as he is spending time with me. He likes when I'm doing crafting with him. It was hard to convince my hubby to give it a try. Finally he wanted to participate in it. So he spend the day coloring with my son on Wednesday since we had a BBQ party at his parents house. The rule is that they need to case one of the cards that Jessica 's boys had created. My hubby likes to practice using the pens and what was so special about these copics pens. I told him that this was great for blending. He practice on a few images and finally got the one he wanted was this image Skater Ian. He did a great job blending and he really see why I love using my copics and how fun it is to color. BTW he case #1.

Here is my son card and he case #2. He is 7 years old. He made this card for my hubby's mom birthday coming this week. He chosen the color paper and DP. He knows Mama loves pink and shiny stuff to make it pretty.
Well I'm so glad they had fun and hope they do some crafting time again. Thanks for stopping by.

FFF sketch - Cuddle Anya

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Can't believe how fast the weekend is over and time to start another new week. I was off on Friday due to Kamehameha Day but I had to babysit my 22 month old nephew and my son was over at his grandparent's house. Can't do much when I'm babysitting, just when he takes his nap which he didn't. I had him from 5:00am - 3:00pm. Oh well here's a card I did during the weekend. I finally got a chance to do a challenge for Farm Fresh Friday's sketch. I just got a bunch of new Greeting Farm stamps and wanted to color this adorable image called Cuddle Anya. I use acetate overlay design sheet made from Anna Griffin under it is a caramel brown card stock. Use MS double loop punch but cut off the bottom layer. Added a prima, ribbon, and a teddy bear charm.

Here's some pictures I wanted to share with you folks my son just got a sulcata tortoises turtle as his new pet. This turtle will be like the ones we see at the Honolulu Zoo. The turtle will grow about 3 feet and will weight about 70-100lbs maybe in another 8-10 years. My son named the turtle Mika.

And here's some pictures of my nephew. He loves to play in my brother's room and play with his hats. Look at the picture below, that's right his daddy had piece his ears and he has a earring. Isn't he adorable. Hope you all had a fun weekend. Have a great week!

Hello Kitty & Transformer Note Books

Hi everyone! Sorry I been MIA, there's just so many things that was going on. Well here is what I made for my son's last day of school. I made note books for the kids. Hello Kitty for the girls and Transformers for the boys. The HK is a die cut using my Cricut and so is the Transformer but there's no Transformer cartridge for Cricut so I use my new software Make A Cut. I seen it on Eunice blog on how this program is easy to use and create anything with the Cricut. I made a total of 22 notebooks, 11 notebook for girls and 11 notebook for boys. I didn't take a picture of all the boy's note book it was already late that night and my camera ran out of battery and was to lazy to look for the charger. So this was the note book I made for my son. He had to get also a notebook for himself. But he was so funny he doesn't want to use it since I work hard on them and all night I made them. He wants to just save it. I told him he can do anything with it since it's summer I wanted him to do a journal and draw some picture in it then he said mom what if I make a mistake on drawing and I told him that simple the page are easy to tear up, then he said I think I might tear up all of it because my drawing is not too good. He makes me laugh I told him just try your best and draw what you can. Well that's it for now. Hope I can try to post a regular base, I do have lots to share. Thanks for taking the time to visit. Enjoy your day!
