HHH - make mine a double

since I was able to do both Hip Hop Challenges yesterday you are gettin a double dose of Unity in my HHH post!!!The first challenge I did was to use Gel Pens on your card.
Well I own 2 gel pens a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen and a White Gel pen!
So the Sakura it is - I immediately thought of cupcakes cause I always use it on the cupcake liners!!!! I used Unity's Cupcakes a'la Yummy and the Limelight Challenge sketch for the week. The papers are from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie. I stickled the tops as part of the Limelight challenge to use pink bling! They are Worn Lipstick Distress stickles!

The second and far more difficult challenge for me anyway was to TILT your main image! YIPES! I like things nice and straigh - so tilting sends me into a tizzy! Somehow I
managed to survive! I was also able to create this for Dutch Dare's Card Challenge which
is being sponsored by Limelight! It was to create a Valentine
using NO pink or red. Yes there is a tiny bit of pink but hopefully
it will be overlooked/forgiven!
I used the birds from Giggle Grove and did some reverse stamping to make them
face each other. Colored them in, drew a little heart and handwrote Love Birds.
The paper on this is also Basic Grey's Urban Prairie - lovin this stuff!
Thanks for looking!


  1. These are both so pretty. I love the pp on both. I know what you mean about tilting-it freaks me out.

  2. Love these tess! that pp on the bird one is great!! love the cupcakes too!

  3. Cute cards! Love the way you faced the birds (I always forget about being able to do that!)

  4. Super cute Tessa! I love them both!

  5. Fabulous cards, Tessa! Love the birdie one! Urban Prairie ROCKS! :)

  6. How beautiful thing in your blog! I am making several cards with the stamp Magnolia. I had several diary 2009 decorated and sold to my friends. You use it diary?
    I do not know how you call it, is not diary record of what happens in our day to day, but to record the day to day commitments.

    Have a nice end of week!


  7. Gorgeous, fabulous cards Tessa! I loved how you used the birds for the tilted image- it works so well! And, I love that paper, just bought some myself :)

  8. Love those cupcakes. They are all pretty and shiny! I like the bird card, too. I know what you mean about straight. I have been forcing myself lately to break out of the lined up thing a little. It's hard for me when something isn't straight, too!

  9. Cute card - the cupcakes look so yummy!

  10. Love your love birds! Love your paper too! I fell in love with BG!

  11. I love both of these! The cupcakes are sweet and sparkly and your offkilter birds are great - love that paper!

  12. Beautiful cards! i have that Basic Grey patterned paper and LOVE it!

  13. They are both so pretty! I love the sparkly cupcakes and those birds are adorable. Love how you reverse stamped them.


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment! It makes my day!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
