A Few Sugar Nellie Cards!

I purchased this stamp from funky kits but never used her for a card so it was time....I did find out what a fast easy image she was to color....The card was easily put together....I used a MS border punch, old SU simply scrappin kit, colored her with copic markers, used some trim I bought at wal-mart for 25 cents a yard, the circle stamp is Catslife Press and cut out my friend with my quickutz....My crafty friend Camille is always giving me great stuff....Every time she comes over there is something new she has brought....I'm so lucky to have her in my I made this little simple thank you card for her and she loved it as much as I did....

This is one of my favorite Sugar Nellie images.....She is so sweet....I made this birthday card for my friend Jenny that just turned 32.....We have been friends since high school which means we have been friends for nearly twenty years....where has the time gone....Being in the military is hard sometimes because I don't get to be around my friends and don't get to celebrate special days with them....But this year was different....I was able to go home for a week and spend her birthday with her....What a great husband I have....He stayed home with the kids and took them to their football games (we had snacks for one) and he even had a BBQ that we were invited too which he had to make a dish....I love when he has to be the mom even if it doesn't happen very often....He does pretty good....Thanks honey I love you....
About the card I used the sugar nellie image, WOJ sentiment, Making memories paper that I die cut with my sizzix file folder die, copic markers, and some white ribbon.....Very simple yet again I seem to get a lot done this way....Hope you enjoy my card and thanks for stopping by.....

Pink and Brown Tilda

Finally back from California and settled in....I had so much fun while I was in California oh and I ate way to much so now I'm trying to be good to make up for it....I sure do miss real Mexican food that I grew up eating in California....Hawaii is awesome but Mexican food here is just not right....I guess there's no place like home....ha ha....I went shopping at Michael's, Jo Ann's and Bed Bath & Beyond.....Oh I had so much fun and things are so inexpensive on the mainland compared to here n Hawaii....I picked up several new MS border punches for my girlfriend and I....We can't even find some of this stuff here in Hawaii....So enough about all that....I have been busy making cards and coloring images....Oh I do love this hobby....I made this thank you card for a friend and now I want to make a few more....She came out so cute....I just love this one

She is my very favorite new Tilda...How cute is her coat....I can't color her enough....I have not posted but I have been making lots of stuff....I will get some pictures taken today so I can post to my blog again....I have missed you and hope you enjoy my card.....I sent it off to a friend....Thanks for stopping by love love

So I have been MIA once again and gosh things are crazy around here....We have company in town which leave today and I'm leaving for California on Thursday.....On top of that I'm still trying to recover from Dominick's Birthday and Halloween....Although I'm sure a little retail therapy while in California will make up for all the craziness.....I cant wait to hit all the great craft stores, ikea, Target, oh and this isn't even including the food....Oh real Mexican food....I'm getting myself hungry already....ha ha....So back to the card....This is one of my very new Tilda images and she is just so cute....I have had this pattern paper for a long time and so I pulled it out and found that coloring Tilda to match wasn't hard at all....What a simple card huh....I was going to add some stitching but I have purple in the machine right now and I was just to tired last night by the time I finished this card I went to bed....I have a few more that should be coming soon....Have a great day and thanks for stopping by....Love Love

Christmas Joy!

I made this card after seeing a card on Claudia's blog I changed it a little and used a different Tilda but I wondered if it was alright to copy her card....I have been going back and forth weather should post the card or not....I made this card a few weeks ago and I emailed her to ask her permission but I never heard back from her which I'm sure she is a very busy lady....So I hope that I have not broken a rule or offended anyone that surely is not be my intention at all....Actually I admire her work so much....She is very talented....As if I could be that good right....Anyhow I wanted to share cause I just loved the way this card came out....This is the only Christmas Tilda I have so far.....I used my copic markers to color her, some vintage lace and I think the paper is Creative Imagination but I'm not sure since it was given to me by my friend Camille and bazzil cardstock....The card really is very simple but just adding a little stitching sure does make such a difference....Hope you like.....Thanks for stopping by....Love Love
