Crafty Card Gallery Design Team Challenge: Water

Happy Day all!

Today I am sharing my challenge project for Crafty Card Gallery. The theme this month was water and I just LOVE the ocean and the creatures that live in it (ok maybe not sharks so much). My children love nautical creatures and I needed to make a graduation card for my daughter (graduation was yesterday btw). I would have loved a sentiment that said "Whale done" but "Love you Tons" works too. Of course my Cameo Silhouette helped out on this one! Here it is:

I drew in the seagulls the way she used to draw them when she was little. Actually even the whale reminds me of her early art. Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful day. Until next time....

Crafty Card Gallery's Blogaversary Challenge

Greetings and Salutations all!

Can you please we are already in the month of June? I know I am amazed and have some exciting things coming down the pipe. Today I want to share is a card that I made for Crafty Card Gallery's Blogaversary Challenge. The challenge was to use a digi stamp from Blue Moon Creations. Well, I decided to us the Potted Flowers digi. I made a swing card:

Now for the sentiment I used a stamp from the Buzzing Bees set. I will either be stamping a little bee from the same set or using a little sticker before I mail this. I cut this tag with my Silhouette Cameo. I am so glad you stopped by and please go show  Crafty Card Gallery some love. If you are on Facebook, you can find the Get Inky Stamps! fan page and Crafty Card Gallery's also. Until next time....

Some Important Creative Memories News

Good evening all:

I just had to share this information because I do not want anyone to miss out. You all know that the Border Maker System is my favorite tool. Well, there are several of the cartridges that are being retired to make room for some new ones (click the links to view them):


As some of my followers may know, my Dad has terminal cancer and this has set me to think a lot about preserving the memories of our loved ones and commemorating those special events. Fast and Fabulous albums are the easy way to do this and you don't even need to be a scrapbooker. With Graduations and new babies coming, this is the perfect way to remember these special days. For our digital scrappers, there is an option for you here. Have sports fans in your family or kids in baseball, soccer, football or wrestling? Well the Total Sports EXCLUSIVE Cricut cartridge is the one for you. There is also the Sporty 12 x 12 Stack Pack and the Sporty Title Stickers as well.

The current monthly specials are: Host and Save (you can earn some amazing products), The Shape Maker Bundle (if you have the shape maker the Limited Edition Shape maker cartridge, Circle Tag Maker, is a must have), Create More and our Rewards Club (who doesn't like a discount?).

Want to see all the new products? You can view or May/June Mini Catalog right HERE

Later this month, I will be hosting a virtual Creative Memories party. For each order that I receive, I will be entering your name in a special drawing (more details later). This will be a great prize so you do not want to miss it. Until next time....
