Luckily, I had this card, Hedgie the Hedge Hog already made so at least I have something to share today.  You can purchase Hedgie here.  Sorry this is short and sweet, but it just is one of those times
in life where you are just trying to fit everything in that life demands.

Today my card is featuring Heidi's newest creation Ballooon Birdierun to the store and check it out, I can wait.  I used some glossy accent on the balloon but I am thinking it was the old bottle I had, I think I might have tossed the new one, and it kinda came out cloudy but I guess its OK since it is in the clouds. har har.

Well thats it for me this week, so have a GREAT Halloween

Birthdays *really* Are Best

Happy Sunday everyone! So glad to be back after a minor procedure a week ago. It seems to have sucked the mojo out of me! :-) It's hard to do anything when you feel exhausted after doing anything. On Thursday, I did go with friends on a Carolina Shop Hop; boy did that ever just knock me out! We went to 5 stores in South Carolina (we never made it to any NC stores). It was a fun day, but I think it was too soon after my procedure and really took me til yesterday to recuperate! Anyway, birthdays are on my mind, especially with mine coming up in a couple of weeks. I thought this image by 2 Cute Ink would make an adorable birthday card.

Stamps - balloon birdie (2 Cute Ink); birthdays are the best (AMuse)
Cardstock - green, peach, yellow (stash); Cafe Mediterranean (DCWV)
Copics - YR01, YR02, YR12, YR14, YR15, YR24, G40, G43, G46, Y21, YR31, Y35, B0000, 0
Ink - tuxedo black (Memento)
Other - Spellbinders dies, yellow gems, pop dots

That's it for now chickies... Have a great rest of the weekend and a wonderful week! I'll see ya again next Sunday. :-)

Hugs, Margaret

Happy Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!

Halfway through the week, and it is flying by for me.  So much stamping to do and not enough time.

For today's card I used 2 Cute Ink's digital stamp "Happy Birthday Penguin".  Makes a great  birthday card for just about anyone!  I have to tell you though, in person, my pink card stock really goes well with the polka dots.  On the computer here, not so much.  Colors just don't always translate.  Oh, well what can one do.  You'll just have to trust me LOL.

You can purchase Happy Birthday Penguin, HERE.  Thank you for stopping by and have a great rest of your week!!   Sandy

Pretty Paisley

Happy Fall Y'all! 

 Today I used 2 Cute Ink's digital stamp, Black Birdie. It's the perfect image for this time of year. I chose fall colors for my papers that reminds me of all the beautiful leaves that are changing color.  I love driving around my area looking at all the trees. 

Hope you are enjoying the colors of Fall and incorporating it into your cards.

Happy Stamping!     Sandy

Goodbye All

Well this is a sad post for me as it will be my last for 2 Cute Ink. I have decided to step down from the design team as family life is taking up so much time at the moment and I just don't have much time for crafting. I have however created a farewell card so here it is:

I have used the brand new image Black Birdie from for this card. Now I will admit I have cheated a bit as the card has been created in Craft Artist from various digikits. I have then just printed it out, coloured the image with Promarkers and stuck it onto a white card blank. I find making cards this way is great if you need a quick card but also for when you have to post the card.

I would also like to thank Heidi for letting me use her fab images and the rest of the design team for being lovely people. I have had such a great time working with you all and wish you all the best for the future.

Goodbye all and happy crafting

Pirate bird

It almost time for a new challenge but first i am here to inspire you with my friday creation.   This week i am showing you priate bird which you can pick up at the 2 cute ink shop.

Have a good (Thurs)day...

As October barely starts I've had the time to look back on my fun September. I've met some amazing ladies, and created some really cute cards, just like this little fellow, Monster Balloon. With all the fun I've had, however it is time for me to bid adieu to 2 Cute Ink. I will desperately miss the ladies I've worked with and will continue to pester them at 2 Cute Ink FB page.

I would like to say THANK YOU to Heidi and the girls for such a great time, and for helping me figure out who I am in the world of card making - for that I will never forget my time there.

Now...on to the card! So, this guy Monster Balloon is one of 2 Cute Ink's most popular images, and I totally understand why. Here I made him more of an everyday Birthday card, but he could be used for Halloween or maybe a "Monster under my bed" kind of thing for kids.

He is colored in Copics, fully utilizing my YG's (YG03, YG06, YG11), while the balloon is my ProMarker Sky Blue and Lilac. The papers are very old, I've had them for so many years that I don't even know exactly which Mat Stack they belong to. They look great though, especially for a young boy (and I know just the one!).

I'll be back next week with my final card. I hope you stop by then and hopefully wish the new DT member good luck!

Don't forget that tomorrow 2 Cute has a New Release and Challenge. I hope to see more faces in there!

Happy Birthday

For today's inspiration card, I decided to take Birthday Froggie image and make it into a tag. From the tag I designed the card. I used Cuttlebug Swiss Dot texture folder on the card base, copic markers, flower punch and Stickles glitter glue (my fav). Who doesn't love glitter? You can purchase Birthday Froggie HERE. Click Birthday images. Be sure to check back Friday for new images in our shop. Have a great day! Sandy

Fathers Day!

So I have to apologise as I'm not feeling 100% this week and haven't been able to find the inspiration to make my Tuesday 2 Cute Ink Card.

Luckily I had a back up image with my fathers day card I made a couple months ago, using the adorable Penguin Doodle image:

Hoping I'm gonna be feeling on better form next Tuesday!

Love Kt x

Hippo Birthday!

Good morning and happy Sunday everyone! Today's post is using the another cute digi from 2 Cute Ink... the birthday hippo. I love the thought of this image because as we all know, a hippo is way to heavy to be floating on top of a balloon. On one's birthday however... *anything* is possible!

Cardstock - blue & yellow (stash), pattern papper (DCWV All About Boys Stack)

Ink - Memento tuxedo black, SU ballet blue
Other - Spellbinders reg & scalloped ovals, cloud template (Rosie's Roadshow?), pop dots

Here's a side view of the card. The image is popped, but the sentiment is popped higher to stand out from the busy background paper. :-)

Don't forget the new challenge and digi releases at 2 Cute Ink going on every other Friday. See the Design Team's cards and get yourself inspired! When you enter your card, you could possibly win 6 digis of your choice in the 2 Cute Ink shop!

What a Monkey

Hi everyone

I hope you have all had a good week. I have a little inspiration for you today using Monkey Cupcake so here it is:

I have coloured this cute little monkey with Promarkers. The backing paper and gold card are from my stash and the ribbon was a freebie from a magazine. I have handtyped the Happy Birthday sentiment and then used peeloffs to add Nennie. This is going to my little boy's Nan who we call Nennie and as he is our little monkey I thought this would be perfect.

Have a great week all.

Halloween is a real treat..

The title says it all, "Halloween is a real treat" and boy do I agree! The last couple of weeks we have certainly been showing off some amazing images Heidi has drawn in celebration of the best holiday ever, imho. :)

This great image is one of the images from this last week's newest releases. It is called Vampire Owl and totally one of my favs. :) He is colored with Copics and die cut using Sizzix framelits in circles and ovals.

With all the Halloween images I hope you are as inspired as I am! I've been busy making my cards to cross the pond here in a couple of weeks so that my family actually receives them for Halloween.

Just a reminder, you can still get the cutie Night Owl and enter into our 2nd New Release Challenge!

Monday Monday

Jenn here for your dose of Monday inspiration.  I hope your weekend was WONDERFUL, but as my Mom always said (usually when we were watching TV) all good things must come to an end. 

 My card today features a cutie, and a great one for Halloween, Ghostie Sucker. I just put a embellishment I had (from where I don't remember) and put it in as the sucker. 

A quick reminder also, don't forget a new challenge started last Friday, and the theme for the challenge is a great sketch HERE so make sure you get your cards in.  This is a great way to win some images.

That's all for me today, have a great week
