Gimme Some Love!

Happy Sunday everyone!!  Rachel here, and I wanted to share the details of my current 7 Kids College Fund challenge!!!

I just had to use one of my favorite Mo Manning stamps- Love Sign.

She has the cutest little face and dress!!!
then colored her up with my Copic markers.
to create some layers, with the Bo Bunny Souvenir
6x6 patterned paper pad.

The sentiment is from the Bushel And A Peck
SugarPea Designs set.

Layered everything with some 3D Foam Tabs from
Tombow.
Finally, I finished it off with some sequins from
Sulyn.

I love to add stitching from my sewing machine
to my cards, it just gives it a nice finished look.

If you haven't joined the challenge, there is still time!!!  Make sure you use an image from the 7 Kids store, and link your image up today!

I hope this gives you a little crafty inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!!

It's Friday!!!!!!!

Longest.  Week.  Ever!!!!!!!!!

Any-who, just wanted to share a card I have made for an upcoming nephew's birthday!!

I used a different fold/card technique that I found on Pinterest here.

It's basically creating a pocket to attach to the front
of a card!
I had a lot of fun with this, and created some fun
birthday tags to put in the pocket!


This totally radical dude is from The Greeting Farm's
Creeper Crew Twisted kit.

I will definitely make more of these in the future!!

That's all from me for now.  I have a ton of things to do today, but hope to get some crafting time in!!
