Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge 3/11

Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge

Head on over to Getting Cricky with K Andrew Design and enter the challenge!

The challenge is to make a project using green,white, and one other color!

Here is the project that I made:
Stamp set is Winged Things! It's one of my favorites (shh...they all are really!)!
It's VERY versatile though. I stamped a bee on the sunflower as well as the word "sweet"!
The digi stamp is Garden Nellie Lil Dollies by Sherri Baldy!

Be sure to go check out Getting Cricky and see what the other design team members made as well! :)

Seuss Imagination Blog Hop 3/2

“Think left and think right and think low and think high.
Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!”
― Dr. Seuss

Don't hop on pop but hop on top of the Dr. Seuss Blog Hop, where a bunch of talented people came up with their own interpretations of the wonderful imagination of Dr. Seuss. The skies the limit when you have an imagination like Dr. Seuss and talent like those in this hop. Our hop today is hostessed by Jearise in Lorby's World- http://lorbysworld.blogspot.com and that is were to begin if you've happened here by chance otherwise continue on my friend.

Jearise in Lorby's World (link to http://lorbysworld.blogspot.com) has some fun blog candy for this hop. She has a stuffed Cat in the Hall and a fun Thing 1 and Thing 2 craft plus a $10 gift card to Michaels. I know they're silly but doesn't that follow in the steps of Dr. Seuss?


 This is a graduation card that I've made for my son. I plan on adding brads to the right hand lower corner but my room is going through changes so they are no where to be found! I think "Thing 1" and "Thing 2" may be busy fooling around with them! Oh my!
I am also going to buy him the book when he graduates in May and stick money between the pages, that will show if he actually even opens it. hehehe.
I even have a graduation cap that goes with this theme that I received at my college graduation party!
I'm Dr. Seuss through and through!
Enjoy!

Thank you for joining us because...


“You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So... get on your way!”

Kristal's stamp sets are perfect for cards, layouts, and so much more...

For my project, I'm featuring the Pirate Party Image and Art Philosophy Cartridge.......
K Andrew Designs

Supplies Needed:
K Andrew Art Set, even a set with sentiments would work
Art Philosophy, again any cartridge with tags would work
2-3 sheets of 12x12 paper
Ink

I made a game of Go Fish or you could even take out some of the cards and play Memory

I found a tag I liked and set it to cut at 3".
I set it to cut fit to page and it cut 18 tags to one page.
You will need a total of 40 tags to make enough Go Fish cards.
I was able to turn the paper to get extra tags so I didn't have to use 3 pages.
Make sure all your paper is the same color so the game will be able to be played correctly!
There is the paper turned.
There is the stack of 40 tags! :)
You then stamp four tags with one image. You do this with ten sets.
Here they are turned around so you can't tell which is which!

Rules for the game:

And remember you can play memory as well. Enjoy!

Now you can hop on over to your next stop: Debbie!
