Just BITE ME! Haha!!! Sorry, I was having a silly moment! ;) I just received my new Simply Betty Stamps from a couple weeks ago. But I wanted to ink it up wicked bad... I love the image, but not sure whether I like the layout, I feel like it's missing something. Maybe I should start twirling in my chair... maybe some ideas will come along.

Blog you later!

ISS blog hop!

Welcome, welcome to the InStyle Blog Hop!

If you are arriving from the amazing Jodi's blog, you are on the right track, if not, you can start from the InStyle blog.

Here is the order of the hop:

I hope that you are hungry... when I think of summer. Smiley from millan.net 4th July, summer fun, and BBQ comes to my mind. Yummm... How about some calorie-less burger? How funny... while I was creating the card, I also had the TV (food network, love that channel!) on. I was watching an episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives about some yummy burgers... no extra condiments needed... just good beef patties! So, I got inspired. Here is my version, just a couple sheets of patriotic design paper from Reminisce picnic plaid and a simple sketch. Hope you like it!

Your next stop is our very sweet Raquel.

Happy hopping!

CCM News...

TGIF!!! It's time for CCM News...

Check out this super cute Summer Fun set!!! Aren't they the cutest? I was so excited when I first got them. It's available at the Chi Chi Memories.

My card:

I used one of the new digi paper as a background from the new Delighted Line set. And of course, the cute image is also from the Summer fun set. And the sentiment is from Amuse art stamps.

CCM gone 3D!

I used the first set of CCM digi that I brought and fell in love with. This is the Spring is here set. It's available in both digital stamps and clip arts (in this case, it would be perfect for this card, just cut it out and go... no coloring necessary!)

I hope you like it and have a wonderful day!
