Meljen's Pre-Colored images are AWESOME!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Thursday, December 29, 2011 3 stamps of approval
In case you didn't know, Meljen's Designs has an assortment of pre-colored images in the shop!  These images are just perfect for quick cards or gifts and they are just oh-so-cute!

I needed a few more last-minute Christmas cards last week, so I printed up a bunch of the images and I was able to make all 7 of these cards in less than an hour!  Since my images were all pre-colored, once I had a layout in mine, these just seemed to put themselves together!

Here's Moose Lights - he's perfect for out challenge this week at Meljen's Designs challenge blog - which is to use the color BLUE!

These are just a few of the images available pre-colored!  Check out the shop to see all 23 pre-colored images and we promise - there are more coming, too!

Stamtacular Sunday #143

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Sunday, December 18, 2011 0 stamps of approval
I'm dreaming of a PINK Christmas!  There are a lot of non-traditional card colors emerging this holiday season and the Stamptacular team wants you to really use your imagination and only use the color PINK!

I've made a small set of 3x3 gift cards to go on plates of cookies that we will deliver to the neighbors this weekend.  As Hubby was writing out the greetings on the inside of my cards, he said "These are nice, but they're just a bit... pink?"  Well, at least he said they were nice!  :)

These are cute little shaker boxes with mica flakes and a touch of pink glitter.  I really think they're just adorable!  I added a scrap of pink dotted ribbon, with a pearl and the snowflake embossing finishes it all off.

We're sponsored by Kenny K this week!  You can win up to 3 free digis, but only if you play along!

I hope you like my gift cards and I hope you have fun creating something PINK to share with us this week!

Stamptacular Sunday #142

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Sunday, December 11, 2011 0 stamps of approval
Our challenge for you this week at Stamptacular Sunday is Christmas Glitz!  

For this weeks challenge you will create a CHRISTMAS card or a project that is full of glitz! We want to see glitter, bling and sparkles…AND LOTS OF IT TOO! Oh…and don’t forget to stamp! After all, we don’t call this STAMPtacular for nothing!

I've made a small set of gift tags that will be going to our neighbors with some baked yummies.  To get GLITZY, I used glittery paper and a bunch of rhinestones, and of course, I sparkled them each up with my glitter pens!  It's so hard to capture the glittery in a photo :(  But, they look so pretty in person!

Our sponsors this week are Doodle Pantry and Bugaboo!

Happy Happy Birthday, LIZZIE!!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, December 02, 2011 1 stamps of approval
How honored am I to have been asked to celebrate along with my dear friend, Lizzie this week in her very special Happy Birthday blog hop!!

I must give Lizzie cudo's for masterminding a blog hop in HER OWN honor!  I just think that's awesome, and, my dear Lizzie, is the queen of awesome!

So - there are 6 of us, right?  And, you've visited Jess already, so that makes me your number 2!

I'm a card maker... I do bake, and I've been knitting, and I've played around with a sewing machine.. but, really, when it comes down to it, I make cards.  It's what I love and it's what I do.  So, that's what I did!  But, THIS had to be a very special card!  It has to have "wow-factor".. it has to POP.. it has to be awesome (like Lizzie-Awesome, right?).. and, I've been itching to make some pinwheels lately, so here goes.... this is what I've made for Lizzie's special day!

Ok, so, what's a blog hop without prizes, eh?  Of course our hostess has a few surprises for you!  I've heard that there is a free digi drawn by hers-truly, and there are some wonderful sponsors offering prize packs for her celebration... so, what do you have to do?  If you haven't visited Jess yet, you'll want to go see her birthday creations, messages, videos, etc.. and you'll meet Christina, CarisaCass, and Krissy over the next 2 days.. leave us all some love and of course, don't forget to go on over and leave our hostess with the mostest some birthday happies as well!

Most of all, have fun!

And, Lizzie - I wish we lived closer!  Even though we've never met in person, you are an amazing, inspiring, awesome chick and I am such a lucky person to have you in my life!  Happy Birthday to you, my dear friend!!!  Thanks for thinking of me during your birthday celebration!
