Erika's Brithday Card

Well Today is Erika's Birthday. She is now 15 years old, I can't believe she is so grown up now. Just seems like yesterday she was my Little girl who love to sing & play with her Barbies. Makes me sad to know I am missing out on these special times with her.

Anyway I made her a few cards one of which I posted about a week ago. I made this newest one which I love on the 13th & 14th. But I forgot to share it with you.

I made it a 2 sided card. One side has Birthday Greetings, a MyGraficO digital Stamp, &I stamped her name... the other side I stamped her name & lots of flowers then accented it all with lots of glitter. That way she could display it or have it framed if she wanted to.
Griffin colored her a picture inside, hopefully she will appreciate it.

Bears go to the SuperBowl LO

Hello Again, I have been busy with a few Challenges from the groups I run on the Scrapbooking & Crafting Friends NING site. For the Sports Mania Group the challenge was of course a project that was sport related and it had to have the color Orange. I know the color Orange is not the most popular color out there but it so happens that it's the Chicago Bears color ( well one of them anyway) and our Local schools colors... and not only that but it's October and it's a Halloween color. I have been meaning to get this LO done for FOREVER... I mean it was a few years ago and I had bought some really cute stuff for it ... I even saved the cupcake toppers for my LO! LOL....
Of course There are no pictures of me with Griffin on his first ever Super Bowl and the bears were playing which made it even more special.. but I did get a few with Daddy that day so I am happy.

For this LO I had 3 pictures that I wanted to use. I prefer to make double LO's so that when I put them in a book I have matching pages... I set about making the mats for the pictures and then deciding on how I was going to use the Patterned Papers I had , Ultimately I decided to only use the Football Phrases paper and the Football textured paper for the LO's along with the solid Paper. The rest just kinda worked there way to where they are ... free form .

Don't you just love the texture of this Paper! It is just like a football! I saw it at Hobby Lobby and had to get it... for 2.00 a sheet.

The die cut chipboard Letters are covered with Grass paper and some football paper. I made a book marker for Brad then decided I liked it to much and wanted to use it for my LO... Guess I should make him a new one!
Thanks for Looking !

Decorating for Halloween...

We picked up the materials at Menard's and headed home earlier this month to stuff the bags full of plastic bags and Packing peanuts, the ghost heads were stuffed with McDonald's napkins, and the tombstones were placed with the utmost care in a row....

Happy Halloween! That's what Our House says to people as they drive past... We have decorated the yard with some fun plastic bag pumpkins , a Graveyard and even some ghost! hopefully they will survive for a few seasons ... if not I have a plan ready for next year, just need to mark my calender so I have enough time to make what I need.

Brad took a picture of Griffin & I together when we got done decorating the yard. I'm a sweaty mess even though it was in the low 40s...

Griffin really was excited to show Daddy what we did to the yard. He Loved the tombstones and so did Daddy...LOL

Griffin had a great time helping Mommy stuff the Pumpkins . He Loved helping me with the placement of the Pumpkins & was delighted to bring the ghost I made to daddy. This was the first Year he has really wanted to help or was even interested in the Holiday. Next year will be even better because Rory will be big enough to join in the fun!

I'll be posting more pictures of some of the projects we have been doing in the next few days so be sure to check back!

I finished this LO the other day and I LOVE it. If you have never been to the Wordle site then you should check it out , It gave me some inspiration to make my own wordle type design with word and the MyGraficO digital stamps I received for the design team. I am pretty happy with how it came out though my favorite part of the LO is the Paper flower I made from scraps , a button and some stickles! I was inspired by a LO that was done by Rita S. a member of the group . Of course it is not exactly the same but the basic inspiration is obvious and I thank her very much for the beautiful design idea.
For the rest of the LO I used a corner punch, a leaf punch, felt ribbon, stickles, some paper scraps and some ink on the edges.
As always Thanks for looking at my Devilishly Delightful Designs! =D

Imagine Hybrid Card

Hello again! I made this card the other day for a few Challenges for the groups I run & the Design Team that I am a member of.
The Butterfly is a Digital stamp from MyGraficO
I really love this set I have been able to do so much already with it and I am just learning how to digital scrapbook anything.
I used Stickles, Prisma markers, I inked all the edges & used lots of scrap paper... some of which I made into a really cool paper ribbon trim, I also used staples (for the first time).
I just love all the texture on the card.
Thanks for stopping by my Devilishly Delightful Designs!

Thanksgiving card.

Hello Again Everyone, Thanks for stopping by.
Here is a Thanksgiving card I made yesterday. It was for a Challenge for one of the groups I run on . The challenge was to use Burgundy/Red so I felt it called for a Fall inspired Card. I love thanksgiving... all the food and family. Nothing beats that right?!
For Stamps I used Clear Acrylic stamps from Michael's Dollar spot section and some Martha Stuart Clear Acylic Leaf stamps. I also used Stickles & some fiber that I recived in a fiber swap a while ago... all I know is it is for knitting and I should go buy more... =P I also used a few paper scraps and inked the card with some Stampin' Up inks.
Thanks for looking!
Stay tuned for more of my Devilishly Delightful Designs!

Design Team Challenge creations

Good Morning to you all! I have been busy making cards the past few days and want to share then with you all. Now I have to admit I am not one of those people who makes fabulous looking cards that make you think your not worthy of even trying to make one. I am not a card maker (though I am really starting to enjoy it & have gotten better as I go) So you will not be amazed... But hopefully you will still enjoy. Thanks for looking!

All the cards were made with MyGraficO Digital Stamped Images with the exception of the ASL ( American Sign Language) Thank You card..
