4th of July!!

I love the 4th of July and the colors red, white and blue! I made this patriotic card using a Gecko Galz image which I fussy cut and then layered with sheet music and a piece of Gecko paper called Patriot. I added a banner, inked flower and metal #4 (Tim Holtz) from my stash.

Uncle Sam

I wanted to make a layout of Rocco wearing his Uncle Sam hat and so I used Momenta papers and stickers. I just love all the stars and stripes in the papers and Momenta's patriotic stickers are just wonderful!! Momenta products used are: American Pride clear layered sticker (the eagle), Puffy Message Seasons sticker (the 4th), Papers from the Family Outings 12 x 12 paper pad, red cardstock, cardboard, letter stickers & July calendar from my stash.

New tag

This tag is made by paper piecing a cupcake digi image. The image is part of a set called Ice Cream & Cupcakes (by Sherri Baldy) and is available at Scrapbook Stamp Society. The set also has a larger cupcake, an ice cream cone and a swirly lollipop. I cropped and enlarged the smaller cupcake in Photoshop. Then I paper pieced the image and added it to a tag, a die cut and a doily. I used rhinestones for sprinkles and added the Happy Birthday saying. I love paper piecing - it's such fun!! Visit the SSS blog to see all the great digis!

Retirement gift

This is a frame that I decorated for a friend who retired this year. She likes the illustrations of Tasha Tudor, so I tucked a few little "Tasha" girls in amongst the flowers. The images are available at Gecko Galz.

Today is Skull Appreciation Day at the Smeared and Smudged blog. Some of the design team girls for Scrapbook Stamp Society are in the hop. We'd love for you to join us! My card is the Voodoo Priestess digi from Heather Valentin. I used markers to color her. Isn't she "to die for" - lol!!!
