Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges #365 - Square Cards

Hi there!  So happy that you've stopped in to visit me.
It's Saturday so we have a new theme challenge for you
This week our hostess Larisa chosen
SQUARE CARDS
as the theme for all of us.  
I personally love to make square cards!
I go in spurts where I'll make a bunch of 
them in a row before I go back to regular A2
size cards.  Square cards are awesome for
larger stamp images such as Belle from 
the BEAUTY stamp set.  Here's my square card:
I had previously watercolored this panel and it was
just sitting on my craft desk waiting to be put on a card. 
The sentiment is from LOVE STORY SENTIMENTS.
I decided to keep the style clean and simple but
with layers.  I just always seem to need layers 
on my cards :o).  CAS with only one layer is 
veryyyyyy difficult for me to do -  LOL.  

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
The Brown Sugar Challenge Blog: challenge #234 Anything Goes
Crafty Creations Challenges #333 - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers Challenge Blog #123 - anything goes
Jo's Scrap Shack - Fun Friday Challenge #172 Always Anything Goes

Have a wonderful weekend ya' all!  Hugs D

Best of Cluck - SugarPea Designs Mix it Up Challenge #27

Happy Monday sweet friends!
I'm back again to share a second card
This card was made using the super sweet
Best of Cluck stamp set (and coordinating dies).
I knew as soon as I saw this set that I had
to have it!  But it has been sitting in my
"waiting to be inked" stash (very sad) for several
months until now.  I also had these really
pretty papers from the
Countryside Charm Patterned Paper Collection
in my stash as well.  I'm so excited to have
made this card and to have checked two items off
my crafty New Year's resolution :o)
and here's the inside too
Oh my gosh...doesn't that broken egg just
crack you up (pun intended)?!

I am entering this card in these challenges as well:

My design layout was from MOJO Monday #479
(now closed)

Thanks so much for stopping in to visit me today! 
Hope your Monday was fantastic and the rest of 
your week even better.  Hugs! D

"It's Your Birthday..." SugarPea Designs - Rice, Rice, Baby

Hello sweet friends!  
I found some myself with the luxury of
having some "just for fun" extra crafting time 
over the weekend so I pulled out a few of
my "yet to be inked stamps" and had a blast 
creating with them.

   Do you make New Year's resolutions?
I don't usually make them - mostly because it seems
that I inevitably fail in keeping them lol.  BUT....
this year I did make 3 crafty resolutions 
1) use more of my "yet to be inked" stamps
2) use up more of my designer paper stash 
before purchasing more (this one is going to
be the most difficult because I think I 
truly have an obsession with patterned papers)
3) get a couple of my cards published  and...
hopefully 4) be awarded a guest designer spot for a 
couple of stamp companies or blogs that I really like. 

I'm super happy about this card because it fills two of
my New Year's crafty resolutions - using an inked
stamp set called Rice Rice Baby from SugarPea Designs
and some of my designer paper from my stash.
I colored this with my copic markers.  
here's the inside too

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for visiting me today!
Hope you have a fantastic (and crafty) week!
