Sweet Caramel Apple

As a kid, I used to LOVE Caramel Apples! Every year at the Calgary Stampede, that would be our treat to take home with us.... yummmyyy!!!! Of course we HAD to take it home cuz we were literally SICK with JUNK.....corn dogs, french fries, cotton candy, corn on the cob, mini donuts, lemonade, rootbeer....LOL....ugh!!!!!

So when I came across this template at My Favorite Things, I had to print it out and give it a try!!! The paper is Real Red and Creamy Caramel (SU) and the DP is some scrap SU paper. The image is a C.C. Design stamp which I got from Simon Says Stamp Superstore. It was really easy & really fun!!! And, it is a nice change to the regular A2 cards!!!!

Thanks for popping in!!!! AND THANKS sooo much for leaving a comment!! I appreciate it more than you know!!!!

I will be starting up my table at the Farmers Market again in May, and it seems that Sympathy cards go as fast as birthday cards!!! So I need to stock up again!!!

Paper: Pixie Pink; Pretty in Pink
Ink: Pixie Pink

And a side view to show the butterflies popped up!

Paper Sundaes Challenge blog....

ETA: I was having blogger issues so I emailed my entry to Paper Sundaes...hope it still counts for the challenge!!! EEK!!!! Bad Blogger!!!

I just discovered a GREAT challenge blog, with AMAZING prizes!!!! You really should go check it out....actually, no don't, cuz then I won't win!!! LOL It is called Paper Sundaes and it looks very fun!!! So, I am joining in for this weeks challenge! Squeaking it in at the very last minute!!! LOL

The theme this week is Make a Scene, so I made this Pirate scene using Dustin Pike images, High Hopes sentiments and the new Pirate Edwin and Pirate Tilda. I forgot to take a picture of the inside...but inside there is a Treasure chest overflowing with jewels and coins and a pirate map. The sentiment says "May your birthday be brimming with treasures". The pirate ship, message in a bottle, the barrel and the sword are Dustin Pike images (as is the treasure chest & map inside). The Magnolia stamps can be purchased at Simon Says Stamp!!!

I am also entering this into the Magnolia Stamp Lovers challenge blog, they have a theme of Create a Scene too! LUCKY ME!! Thanks for the heads up Mindy!!!

Also, Paper Sundaes is having a Blog hop to celebrate all their amazing sponsors - it started on the 11th and is running until the 30th so you still have time to participate!!!! I am off to hop now!!!! You can get up to 7 (yes, I said SEVEN!!!) entries to win a hAnglar & stAnglar stamp. I don't own this one, so it would be a GREAT addition to my little collection!!!!

Thanks for stopping in Matey's!!!!! Have a grrrreatttt day!!!!


The Corrosive Challenge Blog - PAPER PIERCING

I love paper piercing and quite often I forget how much it adds to a card! Sometimes it can make all the difference!!!! This card is for The Corrosive Challenge blog and I have paper pierced around the label shape. The cat is a die cut from Die Cut Dreams, I just added some shading with my chalks and a white gel pen. The sentiment is from a sentiment set from Simon Says Stamp. The flowers are from an SU flower punch and the rhinestones are from my stash.

Now, pay close attention to the Cuttlebug is called Forest Branches....isn't it great?? You're thinking...OK, ya what is the big deal?? Well, let me tell you...THIS particular CB folder..... my HUBBY bought for me!!! ON HIS OWN, without me asking...he just showed up with this one and a set of borders folder...neither of which I owned (which is hard to do!!) LOL Tim NEVER buys me crafty things because he says he doesn't know what I don't' have (k, seriously.....what does that say about my craft room?? LOL) but he did this time, and he did AWESOME!!! I LOVE HIM!!!!

Just thought I'd share that with you!!! Have a great week!!!
