Superheroes and Villains!  Who doesn't like superheroes and villains with the latest Marvel Comic movies hitting the theatres (I'm going to get hubby to take me on a date night to see Captain America) and more DC Comic ones in the works?

Well, Cute as a Button Digital Stamps has their own version and they are CUUUUUTE!

Let me present my versions of Batgirl, Catwoman and Poison Ivy.


You can get your own digital stamps at the Cute as a Button shopify store and... there's a special on for the next few days!

Tea Party anyone

Here is Little Miss Muffet Stamps "Fennel".  She is the progressive challenge image for the LMMS Facebook Group monthly challenge.  I saw her as a doll and then thought little girls and tea parties so... that's my story and I'm stickin' to it lol.

You can get your own Fennel for only $1.00 here

Coloured with Copics.  Cardstock and tea cup die are Stampin' Up; paper is from my stash.


I am entering into the following challenges:

Little Miss Muffet Challenges: Challenge #137 Anything Goes
Paper Crafting Support Group: Sketch Challenge #11


What makes you lose sleep?  I'm thinking my friend, Brenda, must have a lot of sleep interruptions and ah-ha moments and I'll venture a guess might even have a notepad and pen close at hand 'cause... she's done it again.

A Hershey Kiss CAT!  You had me at chocolate (well... I'm not a huge choco-holic but I do love my Hershey Kisses and always have a few hidden hoping for another Brenda-original) and then add cats...  So stinkin' cute and so quick & easy.

These would make super house-warming gifts (a basket of cute kittens anyone?), kids' party favours, cat-lady/friend or pet-sitter gifts, office gifts, table favours or... keep a few to hand out, individually packaged in a clear envelope and sporting your Stampin' Up contact info on a little collar tag?

So, you can get your own tutorial here.  While you're there, be sure to check out all the other fabulous tutorials Brenda has and if you need a Stampin' Up Demo in the States (I'm in Canada), be sure to think of Brenda.


Supplies used are all Stampin' Up.  I didn't have the Playful Pets stamp set (so cute) for the nose and mouth but pulled out my always-by-my-side Owl Builder punch and used the heart from it.  I also use some retired dsp to give some interest to the golden eyes.  Gel pen for highlights.

My second "make" is below and I decided to add a belly/body.  Which one do you like better?

Mother's Day

Next week!  May 8 in North America.

But you still have time to pick-up this gorgeous image, Mother's Day Portrait, and git 'er coloured and carded up by then [wink].  She's also perfect for many other occasions... Mother of the Bride (with that Wedding bundle - hint, hint), birthdays...

She is an SBS exclusive made especially, and only available, at Angel's Hearts and Memories.  I just love digital stamps 'cause they're INSTANT gratification.  No waiting for the mailman and tapping your foot when it doesn't show up in a week or two or three.

She can be purchased individually or she is also part of the "Mother's Day bundle" which includes the oh-so-cute Angela and Furbaby that I show-cased a couple of weeks ago (and I have another one coming [wink]).

This is a Double Dutch Fold card.
