You're so tweet! by Debbie features Toucan Party and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
I recently purchased the Toucan Party stamp set. These toucans are so much fun to color!  I decided to add a bright polka-dotted background to make the black pop. I added the large tropical leaves to add some tropical accents. Finally I used  the Frames & Flags die set to create the frame.  

I hope you will ink up and join in, and if you haven't seen the new release, I highly suggest popping over to the Newton's Nook shop to check them out!  They are so fun!

Create a project featuring Under the Sea!

Here's my inspiration:
For my card, I used a Newton image from the Newton's Costume stamp set.  The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn's Fintastic Friends stamp set.  The frame dies are also from Newton's Nook Designs.  I used the Frames & Flags set, the Framework set, and I also used the Sea Borders die set.

Life is better with sprinkles!


I wanted to play with this fun sketch from Your Next Stamp. While looking through my paper stash, I spied my Good Eats stack from DCWV.  I pulled out the donut papers!  Then I remembered the sentiment from Newton's Donut stamp set. My stamp collection from YNS is not nearly big enough, but I thought this sweet monster from Silly Monsters2. This cute monster looked like she would love a donut!  Once I assembled everything, I have to admit it made me smile!  

Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Debbie

Root Beer Fun

The tags include stamps from Newton's Nook Designs--Pug Hugs, Love Bites, Newton's Costume Party, Little Lilies, and Cameo Frame Die.    

This year I was blessed to have a para educator in my classroom!  She is an amazing person, so I wanted to give her a little thank you gift.  She LOVES root beer, so I found lots of root beer items which include:
Bottles of root beer
Root beer barrels
A & W singles to go
Root beer flavored Twizzlers
Barq's root beer lip smacker
Root beer float pie (not shown)
Root beer queen tshirt (not shown)
Womens Root Beer Queen T-Shirt - Funny Food Humor XL Cranberry
and Root beer homemade cards.
My students also made little thank you cards that were the shape of a root beer bottle. 

Here are the cards I made her:

This root beer themed card features sweet kittens from Newton's Nook Sweetheart stamp set. 

This card features a darling pug from the Newton's Nook Pug Hugs stamp set. 
The root beer bottle is from Fresh Squeezed Stamps, which unfortunately is no longer in business.

This card features Newton from Newton Loves Cake.  I cut out the cake and replaced it with a bottle of root beer.

When life gives you lemonade by Debbie features Freshly Squeezed by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook

I created this fun summer card using the retiring Freshly Squeezed stamp set and the Frames & Flags die set for the background and banners.  I used Distress Oxide inks to create the background. I found some pattern paper and card stock that match wonderfully. I stamped and colored the lemonade stand using the same color scheme.  I took some liberty with the sketch.

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Card #5


Here's my 5th coffee-themed card. I have Winston and his friend on the beach enjoying a nice iced coffee.  These darling bears are from Newton's Nook Designs' Winston's Lake House stamp set. I am a bit jealous of these bears as I would love be in those chairs sipping a nice brewed drink!  Thanks for stopping by!
