Mother's Day - Thinking of You

Good evening - Barb here - sharing a Mother's Day card. My mom is a flower lover so I knew she would love this flower ribbon - with a touch of pink in it. Pink is her favorite color. I Brake For Digis has a wonderful assortment of floral digi designs for you to use. A little glitter was added to the ribbon and the flowers.

Everyone have a wonderful evening. I hope that the sun starts shining in Wisconsin soon - so our flower can grow and bloom.

Wishing you all the best...

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a great Easter Sunday.  We had a busy day filled with lots of food and family :)

I love having masculine cards in my stash, and this Lighthouse from I Brake for Digis is a great image for that purpose.  I colored it with Copic markers and then went back and added highlights to the water with a white gel pen.  I thought the red bakers twine fit the nautical theme and buttons and twine seem to be my go to masculine embellishments.

Thanks for visiting and have a great crafty day!

Easter Sundae

Hi, Lisa here to post a project today.  I went for a sweet looking Sundae, yum. Very appropriate for Easter Sunday!

As ever, it's Promarkered, with added Stickles for bling! The border punch is Martha Stewart and it's all tied together with some cute pink eyelets.

You Rock

Good Tuesday evening Barb here - cold and rainy and snowy in Wisconsin - Mother Nature has some issues right now - it feels more like October than April.

The card I am sharing tonight for a special person fighting a big battle. I send a card each week and I thought this card would bring a smile to his face. Freddie the Frog - have you seen all the great Freddie the Frog images on I Brake for Digis - there is one with a walker, a motorcycle, happy hour, etc. I think you can find a Freddie that could fit any occasion. Freddie also does holidays. I want to try a Christmas card with one of the Freddie Christmas images.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card.

Cupcake Trio

Hi Everyone,

It's Karin posting today's card, and I used this adorable Cherry Cupcake from I Brake for Digis.  I simply copied it three times and added a doily and baker's twine to compliment the bakery theme of the card.  I kept it sentiment free, so that I can customize it when the time comes.  I love having that option for my personal card stash.

You can see all of the food themed stamps at the I Brake for Digis store by clicking right here.

Hope your day is a three cupcake kinda day!

Lisa here, and I'm still on ATC mode! Here's Bob.

I love this fishie digi. He's Promarkered, stickled and the background is made with chalks (haven't had those out for a while!). Now I just need to pack him up and post him off to a swap!

Hello Sunshine

Barb here today and I am so glad to be here - thought I was having computer issues and was going to have to replace the old machine - but it was my modem - I wish I had known that several weeks ago - I would have been so less frustrated.

Today's card is using the digi image "Sun" from I Brake for Digis. We had a taste of summer last Sunday and a couple nice spring days on Monday and Tuesday but today we had to get out our winter coats again.

I have highlighted the sunshine rays with glitter and popdotted the sun and then also popdotted the face for a little more depth. Don't you love the background paper - when I saw the cloud paper with the little suns on it - I knew it was perfect.

I hope your day is filled with Sunshine.

Bon Voyage

Hi Everyone,

It's Karin here at the blog today, and I Brake for Digis came through for me when I was desperate to make a card for someone who was leaving to vacation in Hawaii.  I had no travel themed stamps, and then I remembered this Brush Jet digi from the store.  Guess what?  It's a FREEBIE!

If you've never tried digi stamps, or just need a travel themed stamp, drop by the I Brake for Digis Store and grab yourself a freebie or two!

Have a great day!

Mmmmmmm cookies!

Hi! It's Lisa posting today with another food centred project!

I've copied this box from one I won in a raffle. It's a very simple design, but quite effective. I've filled it with a little bag of chocolate chips and a chocolate chip cookie recipe, hence the cookie digi on the front! The cookie has a bit out of it, so I just layered up a couple to cover up the bite marks so that it looks like a cookie stack. 

Last year I made notebooks for my children's teachers, this year they may all be getting cookie ingredients!!!! Hop on over to my blog for more details.

How about something different

Barb here - I needed to redo my pumpkin bar recipe card - it was so splattered, grease covered, etc that you could hardly read it anymore. I decided to make a 6 x 6 recipe page for the bars. I used the pumpkin digi image from I Brake For Digis to decorate my page. I cut out one pumpkin to place on the other side of the page to balance the design. I had a large brad there but I did not like that and the small pumpkin seemed perfect to me.

So remember you can use your digi images for other things besides cards.

In case you can't read the recipe - here it is -


2 C. Flour 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp. baking powder 2 C. sugar
1 tsp. soda 1 C. salad oil
¼ tsp. salt 4 eggs
2 tsp. cinnamon 1 c. nuts (opt.)
16 oz. can pumpkin

Mix from pumpkin to flour and add nuts.
Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees in a
12 x 15 x 1 jelly roll pan.


3 ounce pkg. cream cheese
¼ cup margarine or butter
1 tsp vanilla
About 2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp milk

Beat and frost bars when cool.

Spring Time Bunny

Hi Everyone!

It's Karin posting a card made with this sweet bunny digi from the I Brake for Digi store.  I love tulips, so this image called to me immediately.  I added lace and pearls, because they seemed to fit the dainty look of the card.

Visit I Brake for Digis and see the great stamps available for spring and Easter!

Have a good day!

How many candles on your cake?

Lisa here to post today! I've had this cute candle coloured and waiting for a project for a week or so. I needed a card for a man of a certain age, so I thought the candle would fit the bill!

The potty background is vellum, attached with brads, and the wording is printed out from the PC. I wanted to keep it nice and simple- the recipient isn't one for fussy things! Now I'm wondering what I could do with a forest of smiley candles!!!!!
