Freebie Sentiment set

I made this sentiment set a while back for some cards I was making.
I hope you can use it , This set is my first attempt to make sentiments like this...
   Normally I just find someones Else's freebies
but I couldn't find what I was looking for so made my own.D
 Free & Available here till Wednesday's am post then it will be gone.
 Let me know if you like them , Thanks!

Freebie Sentiment set
Available from 8/8/2010 - 8/10/2010

just click on the image & right click on it to enlarge and copy.

This will fit on your 8.5 x 11 Standard  paper for the printer.  I would double check with a print preview just to make sure it is correct before I printed it out but it fits mine perfect. and I have made it so you cut it in half and then you cut each sentiment out separately...( at lease this is how I did I anyway)

Thanks for stopping by my blog hope you enjoy !

Robot Birthday card

Happy Saturday...
Today's  I am Sharing a Birthday card made 
( just click on the link to get to the Tiddly Ink store)
this is only 2.00 !
Such a cute image sure to be used many many times.  
I can just imagine adding a bow or a butterfly to the robot 
& TaDa its a girl robot!

I used some grey card stock & some turquoise scrap card stock
hehehe... yup some of that pile of paper from Walmart once again...
I will make my way through it if it kills me!
I used the blender pen and made the surrounding outline blurred,
 added white gel pen highlights to the robot ( they are a bit harder to see in the photo)

The Nuts and Bolts are from the Sara Paris Style robot stamp set..
It's a super cute set with a few cute extras.
The Circle Happy Birthday is by DDDivas ( sorry no link as it was a freebie during a challenge)

I used my new circle cutter to cut the whole image out
 (2.00 at a garage sale, I love when I find something scrap worthy at one!).

I like it, very clean and simple card for a guy.. 
Which as we all know Guys can be super hard to make cards for.
I think the guy ( or Boy ) who receives this card will like it.

I hope you do, let me know what you think !
Thanks for stopping by!

Freebie alert !! Freebie alert !!
Freebie coming tomorrow!!
Make sure you come back to see what I have for you!

Pretty Pretty Princess card

Last weekend was CHA and I was busy around the house trying to get stuff done before I left. So I didn't get as much done as I would have liked but
I managed to make a few cards but never got to take pictures till today...(Yikes)
( I will make a separate post about CHA and all my goodies,
It was alot of fun and now I know what to do so I won't miss out on a thing! )

I made this Pretty Pretty Princess card, I was going for a bit more Clean and simple style but still have the pretties... I think it came out pretty good.

I had been looking for a sentiment to go with it but couldn't find anything I felt fit the card. 
I made one but then  decided not to use it.. LOL Ok I forgot to add it in my haste to finish the card ... but I don't really miss it to much..  and this way I can add something later for the correct occasion.

Please don't mind my rough edges ... the blade is shot on my trimmer and I needed to get a new one.. but had been putting it off.. then Rory the little guy Shoved it off the table  and broke on of the sides then did it again  and broke the other now it is really broken.. Blah.. =D at least now I really NEED it! LOL..

I added some pretty roses in various sizes and some Jewels in various sizes to one side of the card and of course added lots of stickles to the dress, crown, and scepter..  I colored with Prisma markers and copics, and the paper is various scrap... ( but I know it was all bought some time ago at Walmart) 
Do you ever feel like you  have to get throught the old paper you bought before you can get to the new stuff? ... LOL I do and I swear I bought a huge stack of papttern paper and I am never going to get through it. its just so much.. I use it all the time though..  so maybe one day.. =P

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
 I have more so stay tuned! LOL I am setting up the schedule for them to post themselves...
 I am super busy getting ready fo Griffin to go back to school, getting ready for a road trip ( from IL. to Tx. To FL.)  with my sister! and I am getting ready to have a yard sale.. So much to do.. so little time.

I just love this set the flowers are so lovely...

A Great perk to this set is that they are also Brushes! Whoo Hoo!
Love, love, love... that!


Here is my Card... Hope you like it!

I distressed edges slightly with charcoal ink &
 distressed the orange cardstock with the Tim Holtz tool.

I used my copics to color the stamped image
 and then to get the mottled sky I used a blender pen and
dotted the area I wanted to be softened.
This is a very forgiving technique that anyone can do.

I  stickled the flowers and the sentiment is from TLC Creations.. link to store...
