Cupcake Honey birthday card

I needed to make a b-day card for friend of ours - he's not the kind of guy to go for frilly things, so I used this image instead of my typical cutesy digis :-)  I hope he appreciated it! LOL  In any event, the image is from Sassy Studios and it's called Cupcake Honey.  The candle background is an embossing folder from Cuttlebug.  The sentiments (inside and out) are from SU Sassy Suzie set.  The digi was colored using Prismacolor colored pencils.

 Tools used: SU Sassy Suzie, Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Prismacolor pencils

Book Review ~ His First Kill: A Short Story

I usually don't read short stories....because...well...I think they are too short! LOL But this one was filled with twists and turns and unexpected things. I loved it! It was a quick read (as I guess is the point of short stories lol) but it was enjoyable all the way through. Thank you John Brinling! It was a fun, unexpected read!

Dragon b-day card

Here's a birthday card I made for one of my kids' friend's birthday parties.  I used Dustin Pike's freebie image and colored with Prismacolor pencils.  I double matted him and put some ballon brads along the side.

Tools used: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities squares, balloon brads, Prismacolor colored pencils, Dustin Pike digi
