Well first Thank God It's Friday!!!!
I have been trying to get over this sinus infection this week and on top of that my girlfriend across the street is having a yard sale so she talked me into doing it with her......Of course I have plenty of stuff that I no longer need......Why is it that I feel the need to hold on to everything.....i will never know....So this has been my chance to "clean out the closets" which were in desperate need......So I am letting go....Yea....Anyways that is why I have not been around.....Of course I still have been able to find a little time to craft.....But still have been unable to take pictures and that whole process so maybe this weekend I will get some stuff done.......Oh yea I got my new Sugar Nellie stamps and I just love them.....Can't wait to get some of them uploaded....Well back to this card.......I made this card for my girlfriends birthday.....I just love this Tilda she is to sassy and cute......She is also another favorite of mine........Well maybe they all are........Enjoy and have a great weekend.......Happy Stamping....

The Shabby Chic Fence & Tilda

As you can see I am still using up this SU pattern paper.....So last week I was at Ben Franklin and they are discontinuing the fabric and all the trim and lace so it was 50% off of the already marked down price.....And for the entire roll not per yard....So of course I had to buy plenty or should I say all....Also they had put the Maya Roads metal tins (perfect for a mini album) with chipboard flowers on clearance so they came out to be like $2.00 so of course I had to also pick up a few of those....So back to the card....The flower is chipboard covered with pattern paper, a circle punch with the sentiment, CB flower and prima flower all nested together.....I used one of my favorite Tilda stamps and finally put some ink on my cutest shabby chic fence which I just love and now want to make more cards with it......Mostly the card was using up the scraps of paper from my previous cards....I colored with copic markers.....I just love this stamps she is so cute.....Well I guess that is about it for this card....Enjoy and thanks for stopping by....Have a great day!

Blog Candy Sketch

I found Trina's Timeless Treasures blog and she has a wonderful sketch up to win some blog candy.....I liked the sketch and her card that she made so I thought I would give it a try....This is what I came up with....For this card I used SU pattern paper and cardstock, Sugar Nellie Stamp, Making Memories fabric label, copic markers, prima flowers, CB embossing folder and a few small buttons.....This was a fairly easy card......Not to much to putting it together....I am really enjoying doing these sketches it sure seems to just make the card some together so much faster even if I change the sketch a little to work better for me....Enjoy.....I love you hear your thoughts and comments about my cards.....Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping....Love Love

Adorable Sweet Precious Moments

Sorry I have been away for awhile.....I have a sinus infection which is never a good thing....So my head has surly been hurting.....So I thought I would post a few cards that I have been doing....Precious Moments.....I have always loved Precious Moments and I was lucky enough to have been given several really cute images from my friend.....Although I hate to admit that I have not yet stamped them all but I do just love them......This image isn't my stamp but when I went to Kellie's I stamped a few....As always I wanted to come home and color which I did....But after coloring the stand did I realize what color am I going to color the dog....Well I colored before I made the card so not exactly happy with the result but was able to use up a small card I had originally made for somehting else but never used....I used my SU oval punches, small prima flowers and SU cardstock....Pretty simple I will say....I need to color more of these images.....Hope you all have a nice weekend and happy stamping....
Thanks fr stopping by...

Sugar Nellie

My stamping Buddie Camille came over on Friday and she had new stamps that I stamped and then I had to order a few for myself.....Oh I cant wait till they get here....Just love coloring these images....Well the story behind this card is actually kind of funny....I had the card base made since a long time ago....but that was as far as it got....So I used that as the base and I added a few stamp images of a small grass stamp that made it go off the page and then I colored with my copic markers and that was about it......It was done........And I so love these images....Did I already say that....Well I need to get back to my craft room and finish up a few other things....I hope you enjoy this card I sure did.....Thanks Camille......Thanks for stopping by....

Aloha Magnolia Sketch Challenge

Thank you Claudia for this great sketch challenge and for making such great magnolia cards.....You are such an inspiration....I used the hula Tilda and tree since I do live in Hawaii and I have yet to make a card with her....I colored her with copic markers and the copic glitter pens which make the tree and her lei stand out....I used Blossom alpha from quickutz to cut the word aloha....The card size is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2....I should have made it a little larger I think...
I don't think you can really see the glitter pen show up it was after 5P.M. when I took my pictures and the lighting wasn't all that great....Also this is the first Magnolia card that I didn't cut off the wings.....I have such a hard time getting them to look like all the other ladies do...
I used SU dimensional pop dots to pop up Tilda but again I don't think you can see that to well....I would love to hear what you think.....Thanks for stopping by....Happy Stamping....

Tilda With Broom

I made this Tilda with the broom yesterday and she is super cute....I love these colors....I started to use a sketch from Katharina's sketch #4 but I added the sentiment circles and it came out really cute.....I really love her sketches and have found lately that they make it so much easier to put together a card....I also used the sentiment stamp from Hanna Stamps domestic goddess set which is another favorite of mine....So what do you think....I love to hear your thoughts and comments.....Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend....

My New Stella Images

My dear blogging friend Lynn did a image swap with me.....I have been admiring her Stella cards for a long time but I have no Stella stamps so I decided to ask her is she was interested in doing an image swap with me....So I sent her some Magnolia images and she sent me these cutest Stella images......I just love them and she also sent me this cute card....She does some super cute work....Thank you Lynn for sharing with me and for the awesome card I just love it....Thanks for stopping by....

Magnolia Card Mingle

Our magnolia group did an August Card Mingle....So we signed up to send a card and then Susan assigned us with our partners and I was lucky enough to send to a gal here in Hawaii...How awesome is that.....And possibly for the very first time in my life I actually got it mailed out on time....I wasn't late....I know hard to believe huh....So I used Tilda with vine and basket and CB embossing folder, SU ribbon, hardware & cardstock...I had a lot of fun making this card and yet again I didn't want to give it away....Why is it that sometimes I want to keep my cards for myself
For the inside of the card I used my Fancy Pants clear stamps and stamped the lined flower image in brown on cream cardstock and the used my blender pen to pick up some ink from my ink pad to add some color to the flowers....I also stamped Summer on the paper before I wrote her a little note.....She told me how much she enjoyed the card and that makes me feel so good...I love for others to get happy mail....Well thanks so much for stopping by and happy stamping...

How exciting for Katharina to be starting her own stamp company and to have just hit 100,000 hits....So we all have the chance to win the Whiff of Joy Guardian Angel Collection by Elisabeth Bell wouldnt that be so super exciting....So stop by her blog and leave a comment to be entered....Good Luck....Thanks for stopping by.......Happy Stamping

I actually made it back to post one more card....She is super cute and I would normally use these colors for something for a boy card but I thought they would work and I wanted to use the cute green woven Merci label....Well I'm off to bed now...Thanks for stopping by......

Happy Birthday Card!

Jared had a birthday party this afternoon so I had to put together a card pretty fast....I love the Tilda images but with two boys I knew that I needed the Edwin images.....This one was just perfect and it matched the Basic Grey Paper.....With bright colors.....I used the SU word window and SU Happy Birthday from gosh I don't remember what that set is called.....It is one of my favorites....I have a few other cards in the works but somehow I seem to get side tracked with another idea or paper....I am trying to make some cards with the My Mind's Eye paper pack that I bought at Costco last year......That was a lot of paper and I still have most of it....So that is my current mission....I might try to post again before I go to bed tonight but we will see......Hope you had a great weekend.....Thanks for stopping by.....

I'm Back!

I have had so much going on lately......Why is there not enough hours in the day.....My hubby just had his birthday and gosh we are getting old.....I got together with the girls on Tuesday for our little stamp morning.....We had fun as always and of course Camille made wonder gifts again....She is so good.....I only made this card which I think came out so cute.....She s one of my favorite Magnolia stamps.....I have been trying to play with the whole white gel thing and it's getting better.....I did learn one thing for sure I need to color the flower on her pants before I color the pants......I think this will help.....The thank you stamps are Heidi Swapp acrylic stamps....Haven't used in a long time.....I seem to always always be happy with my cards and they come together super easy when I use pink and brown.....I want to work on some baby blue and brown.....I sent out two packages this week with images for a few friends and I can't wait for them to get it....I didn't really work on a nice card to send them in but am trying to get a bunch of RAK cards made to send out.....Finding the time is a little hard because this is a crazy month....So many birthdays and our anniversary is the 25th....So exciting....My husband is home so that's also fun he was deployed last August.....Maybe he has something planned....Probably not (he is a man) but I can hope cause sometimes he does surprise me.....Well let me get this posted and get to bed........It's way to late for me to be up.....Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping....
