Happy Birthday - Clean and Simple

Hello Bloggy Friends,

Not the best pictures because the light was not cooperating.
But I hope you enjoyed, anyways.
 Sticking to my resolution and yep, that's right, another "manly" card!! Yeah!!

The Sweetest Thing - sketch

Good Morning Everyone,

I have a busy day. We are out early to go to my mom's and celebrate her birthday. I need to get 2 ards done before that, so this post will be short and sweet. I created this card a few days ago using the sketch from The Sweetest Thing, and I wanted to post it while the challenge is still going on :

It's going in my stash for manly cards. I know, cupcakes aren't usually manly but I think the color scheme definitly is more manly than me usually pinks and purples.

Well, it gotta run. Hav a great day. Thanks for popping in!!

Love You So...

Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to post this little card before I called it an evening. It's been a long day, so forgive my shortness.

This past weeks challenge at CARDS was to create a project with rolled paper. I did the old fashioned paper quilling. It was alot of fun. Here is my valentine card :
I know I'm not the best quiller but it was fun to do something that I do not normally do.

You can check out the rest of the great "rolled paper" projects over at CARDS blog. Next weeks challenge os an easy one - square punch. Should be fun!!

Thanks for popping in.
Have a good night

Super Girly - Just for Fun!!

Hey Everyone,

I'm back with two girly cards for you.
This first one is one of my favourites in a long time. I wasn't thrilled with my coloring but when the whole card came together - I love it. Something about how muted it is?!! I don't know, it speaks to me...
Anyways, enough about my blabbing, let's just show you the card already :
Detailed shot :

And for the second card :
and a detailed shot :

See, I told you - super girly!!
And a rarity, I'm not playing along with any challenges for these. I just made them, for the sake of making them. Let me know what you think?

thanks, Alexis

The Sweet Stop

Hello, hello.
I thought I would grab a quiet moment and post this little card I made yesterday.
It's snowing here today and has been on and off for a few days so my daughter is outside sledding with the neighborhood friends, the house is quiet so I wanted to show you a new little card.
Here it is :
Definitly not my usual colors but I am trying to branch out and be daring!! I usually like unique colors, so I thought, why not?? I let the patterned paper do the talking. It said browns and yellows so that's what I reached for with my Copics.
I used the sketch over at The Sweet Stop.

Hope you like it.
I am going to run and make my daughter some hot cocoa so she can warm up when she's ready to come in!!

Have a great day!!
Warm hugs (especially if you are in Vancouver today!!)
