I love the Under the Stars set!
That bear is tooooo cute!
I found this similar idea with Margie.  I did case the stars and smores on the outside of the box, it really gave it the finishing touch!

Totally Tools!

This card took a little bit of time to color in all those tools, however, I feel it was worth it!
The Wood Grain Background stamp was used on the card body and a Wood Sheet ran through the Big Shot with the Top Note Die makes up the focal point!
Stamp the tools with Jet Black Staz On and color with markers and a Blender Pen!
I added just a few Brads and some twine to finish it off!

Mikey Moose and the Ladies!

Today's Paper Pals gathering  was all about TEAM WORK!
What a better way to work together than a little competition! 
Each team of two needed to work together to.......
Make a pair of Moose Antlers! 
They were given 6 balloons and a pair of panty hose!

Meet the Teams!

Here we have Yvonne and Bonnie!

And here you can see Loretta and Linda!

And here we have Rhonda and Liz!

If you look in the left column you will see a poll.  Under the poll is a picture of each one of these ladies sporting their "mINKy moose" spirit!
Please vote for your favorite!
On the 16th I will reveal the winner!

Todays fastest working duo was:........

And of course we can not forget........

Mikey Moose!

While, I have to admit he is cute, he is exempt from the voting!

Is it a Full Moon?

Love the Nature Silhouettes set!
The Full Moon was done simply by masking!
The night sky?.....you guessed it!  Saran Wrap stamping! (One of my favorite techniques!)

Extreme Guitar....brayered 2!

While I think the blue one of these is still my first choice;
I still think making this card with Green Galore is fun!
While Blue definitely fits Tyler's taste better, this one would be Alex's preference!
Same card, but the color definitely changes the overall tone of the card.

Extreme Guitar...brayered!

This Extreme Guitar stamp was another have to have!
Again, both of my boys have guitars, however, it is my youngest that constantly plays!
If they would have had Extreme Drums, I would have had to have that one too. 
This card was made using the Bouncing Brayer Technique!
Very fun to do and is quick!
