Going on a Picnic! LOL!

Just a quick post to share a picnic basket that I made yesterday to my bloggy buddies that don't have FB.   I seen a picnic basket yesterday morning that my bloggy buddy Nana  from My Crafting Channel posted on FB and I really love  how cute it was.   So I quickly googled around and found a tutorial to make one.   I love doing my own cut outs and figuring out things, I don't need a Silhouette or Cameo to do it for me.  LOL!  I'm old school and will never part with my Cricut, she is to precious and I really take good care of her.  hehe!  So back to this picnic basket, I couldn't believe how quickly I had this cut out and put together.   I say within an hour my basket was done.    It was just the perfect timing too, by bestie called me early yesterday morning and wanted to take me out to lunch.  So this is how this picnic basket came into play.  I've never been to Spoonful Cafe, gee I was amazed how tasty the food was.  Now, mind you I bought my digital camera with me, but without double checking my battery life on it, as soon as I had  snap the picture of our dishes the camera went kaput "low battery".   No pics to share.... how disappointed I was.
But we had a nice chat over lunch and I surprised her with this picnic basket in between of our lunch.   She was stoked and gave one loud laugh that the owner of the restaurant came over to our table to see what was going on.    She asked me next time you come back here to eat, can you make me one.  I will display it on my counter....  That was so cute of her to say that.... 
Well here is that picnic basket~ 
Is this a cute gift to make some one smile or not!

Bright Colors!

It's already another new challenge for the challenge team over at Milk Coffee Stamps!
Our theme for this fun challenge is using" bright colors".    I created a small scene for this digital image "Lisbeth Sleeps".   She is resting peacefully leaning on a tree stump after reading her book.   I over did the mushrooms a bit by coloring them with some deep purples.  I drew in some grass so she would have some padding under her, added some stamp flowers, butterfly's, bubble and sentiment  from Peachy Keen Stamps PK-1372.  Added a gem from Taylored Express to her wee flower that is on her ear, gave the butterfly's some star dust stickles to make them sparkle and also added gems to the center of the flowers.  The cloud die is from My Creative Time, it really didn't show that much on the picture, but in real it's pretty unique.  I added snowtex to them to give them some puffiness, added a 1" offray ribbon to complete my card.  My markers are all from Stampin Up love this set that I got that was given to me from a friend that got  it free from an estate sale from some collector that never used them... Boy did I score on this! 
Don't forget to hop back over and check what the rest of the DT members have for your inspiration..

Graduation money holder!

I've got another graduation money holder to share with you all, did this one with my We R envelope punch board.   A close friend of ours requested one of these money holders since they will be attending a relatives graduation in Kauai Hawaii.   She specifically wanted the school colors which are in red/black/white.   She was stoked with it when I gave it to her yesterday.   

Got more of these in other school colors to make,  and if you take notice they all want in the same style patterns.   LOL!
See ya back here soon~

My Spotlight!

It's that time again to be on the spotlight at Kitty Bee Design.  Hope your Easter was great, it's one of our family's favorite get together every year.   We always get together and do a potluck luncheon, this year it was over at the in-laws gee we had so much food, looks like I won't have to be cooking all week long, yeh!  LOL!
Well back to my card, for today's spotlight I'm using Emilee the Elephant!


I did my own checker board pattern for this card, it's so simple and gives it a different effect to the card.. I kept it CAS - no designer paper!  Colored Emilee with some copic and Shinhan twin markers, added gems, my sentiment is from Peachy Keen PK-192 stamp set and added some washi tape. 
Don't forget you can get Emilee and all the rest of the cutest digital or clear stamps at Kitty Bee Design here!

Prepping my Graduation Money Holder Cards!

Graduation will soon be around the corner, and I've got lot of request again for this year to make graduation money holders.   So I'm starting to work on different ideas and will be posting them up as I get them completed.   Here is one of them and I went with the school colors of Green/Yellow as a replica color for Honokaa High & Elementary School here on the Big Island.    I also used my envelope punch board to do this money holder, I didn't receive my number die on time so I used my Die-Namics stamp for this one.   So I finally got my happy mail in and received my order a day later, but now I can do mass production since I have everything I need to complete them.   LOL!   For this sample that I made I didn't take a pic of the Velcro sticky back that I have for the inside flap will show it on the next one.  

Thanks for peeking in - enjoy your crafty moments..
See ya soon!
