Worm at the Beach

 On Friday I was able to stop and shop at a "local" stamp store- well ok it is a 45 minute drive but well worth it.  Wasn't looking for any thing but little bitty bug eyes which she didn't have.  Well no problem - I found a darling stamp set Little Worms by leanecreatief.com so I came home and had to make a card.  

DP from my stash - bit of bling Amuse - colored with copic markers.  Sentiments - in my stash.  But what a fun card to make - I fussy cut everything by hand popped up the goofy worm - cut out a circle and did some blending.   Note - see his SPF 30 - just a note wear your sun screen when out. 

This will go in the mail next week to my young tween boy chemo buddy.

Sneakers Cards

 Masculine cards are always a struggle for me despite the fact that I have several masculine stamp sets.  I have a younger preteen chemo buddy - so I have been trying to make a few for "tween" boys that aren't too juvenile.  Here are a couple using sneaker stamps.  


Love the red tennies - made this at a class - so the die is not in my collection, but it comes with the little bitty eyelets, shoestrings, and star.  The first card is in my collection - no die but I fussy cut them out - not as much detail as the red ones but I like the way it turned out and is ok for a "tween", teen, or....a younger male. 
Which one is your favorite?

April Birthday Cards - Envelope Flap Card

 I have already posted the 4 other cards we shared this past week when the "girls" got together to celebrate April birthdays.  

I wish I could take credit for this card but I have to give the credit to Karen Titus and when she says easy - it truly is a 5 minute card (depending) on how much you add.

I used StampinUp Playin in the Rain - and the matching DPs.  The dies cut out the fun characters which are part of the DP so it was easy to get 5 kits together quickly. I can see me making some masculine cards using this design as well - well the possibilities are endless.  I have made a couple of masculine ones which I will be posting later.  

My gifties were not handmade but I thought they fit the occasion perfectly. At each place setting I placed:


I was truly happy that everyone was here and I liked that the saying flipped over to say Home sweet Home.  Everyone got to take theirs home for their craft room or island  or where ever they chose to put it.
