Personalized Kitty Cat Birthday Card

Hey friends, I'm back today with a new video showing you how to personalize your pet images to make a custom card for a friend or loved one. This Mama Elephant Perfect Pair makes it so easy to do!
I combined it with the Carnival Toppers and Lawn Fawn Baked With Love to create a cute little scene. And added some glitz with my Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen.

Images were colored with Copic markers. All colors are clearly shown in the video. I hope you enjoy it!

Hello, friends! Welcome to my 10K Subscriber Celebration Video Hop! This is such an exciting day for me.

Please scroll all the way down to the bottom of the post for the complete list of hoppers and also how to be entered in the prize drawings.

I made a super fun pop-up card for my video today, using supplies from all my hop sponsors. But rather than talk about how I created it, I'm going to let my video speak for itself and instead talk about YOU! I want to thank all of you who have followed, liked, commented, and subscribed to me along this amazing crafty journey! I seriously could not do it without you. You ladies (and gents) are such an encouragement to me, and your support means more than you'll ever know. So thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Dreams Come True - Lawnscaping Challenge #138

Hello friends! We're off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz! Lol. Today I am super excited to bring you a card that I've had in my mind for a really long time! I don't know what took me so long to make it. Maybe I was afraid I wouldn't be able to pull it off. But Lawnscaping Challenge #138: Geometric finally pushed me to do it. It was the perfect time to pull out Lawn Fawn's Interlocking Backdrops to create my yellow brick road.

Happy Harvest allowed me to recreate my favorite scene from my favorite movie, when Dorothy comes upon the Scarecrow in the cornfield in The Wizard of Oz. I totally watched a clip of "If I Only Had A Brain" on YouTube to help me get inspired! Stitched Hillside Borders and the Picket Fence die helped finish things off.

I hope you enjoy the video! Click the YouTube icon at the bottom right corner to watch it there in HD, and please don't forget to like, comment, and subscribe. Also be sure to come back Friday for my 10K Subscriber Video Hop! It's going to be so much fun!

Huge thanks to Lawn Fawn for generously donating a FREE stamp set of the winner's choice for our prize this round. Head over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog to check out the other amazing design team samples and don't forget to link up and play along.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have an amazing day!

Make A Wish, Ellie

Good morning, friends! Today I wanted to share a card using the adorable WPlus9 Unforgettable stamps and dies. This set is still one of my most favorites, because I just adore this sweet little elephant. She'd bring a smile to any face!

I gave her a little hat and balloon to hold and some bird friends to really make it a party! Images were all colored with Copic markers.

I also wanted to just let you know that one week from today I'll be kicking off my 10K Subscriber YouTube Celebration Hop! I've got lots of special guests and some awesome prizes to give away so be sure to stay tuned for that. 

I hope you all have an amazing weekend! It's Friday! Yay!

Jump For Joy - Lawnscaping Challenge #137

Hey friends! This is my second post of the day. If you are looking for Laura's 10K Subscriber Hop, CLICK HERE. Otherwise, welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #137! This round is all about adding texture to your projects, whether it be dry embossing, like I did here, or heat embossing, embossing paste, adding ribbon or fabric, you name it!

I was so excited to ink up my new Lawn Fawn Jump For Joy stamp set for today's card. I colored my images with Copic markers and created a little scene with them that would highlight my dry embossed trees on my card panel. I hope you like it!

Please head over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog to check out the other amazing design team projects. And don't forget to link up yours to play along! The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate donated by the lovely Ellen Hutson, LLC.

Have a great day!
