Gosh, I can't believe it has been so long since I posted.
I have to blame it on not getting pictures of the cards that I make.

I think this will be my new priority starting the new year.
Taking pictures as soon as the cards is done. 

Here is a card that I made some time ago and never got to post it.

Got to love the dress. I made it at Robin's card class. 
I changed a few things, but it still kind of looked the same. 
I think it was gorgeous. Love it Robin. 
The Bodice was embossed with black embossing powder. Black lace to divide the waistline.
It was made with the new Lattice and Dots Embossing Folders and the Blossom Flower, Label and Oval Stampin Up Punches. Vellum paper for the bottom of the dress. A small flower punch.

Hope you had a fabulous Halloween.

When Times Are Tough

Again, it has been a long time away from my blog, I guess my life didn't slow down as much as I wanted it to.

I wanted to show you a card I did not to long ago.
Just the love colors.

Gorgeous colors and so cheery. Love the hearts, it adds so much to the card.

Sentiment and Umbrella die cut is from My Favorite Thing.
Heart punch is from Martha Stewart.

So glad you stopped by for a visit. Hope to get more active on this blog.
Please keep checking back for more cards and creative things.

Thinking of You

Sorry for being away so long. 
Having several card parties, canning tomatoes and Salsa, just no time to keep up with thing. Hopefully things will slow down a little. 

Got to love Red and Beige together. 
So simple, yet so pretty. 
I used one of the dotted embossing folders to make the red background. I love this folder, it makes a great background. The smaller dots is just as pretty. I thought the larger dots would make the flower stand out more than the smaller dots. 
The flower and the leaves are from My Favorite Things and they are a die cut. I put 2 flowers together and rotated them a little to make the flower fuller. 
Then I punched a small yellow flower with a Stampin Up punch. 
Added a large brad in the center and wow, makes a fabulous looking flower. 
I stamped the Thinking of You on beige Bo Bunny Design Paper. 

Have a great day and come back again soon.

Sometimes it's just one thing on top of another

Love this stamp, it is so cute with the little boy putting his pants on top of his head, and his shirt on his legs. Super cute.

I'm not sure where it came from, maybe Cat's Pajamas or a Bella stamp, it is a cling stamp. That is the only problem with the cling stamps, if I don't write down where I it got them, later on I don't remember.   
Great sentiment from Great Impressions.
I colored the image with water color pencils and markers.
I used the Spellbingers scallop circle and classic circle for the image. I punched a border to put behind the design paper.

thanks for checking out my blog...

Be Happy

I found this lighthouse stamp in my stash, new, never been inked. So I thought what can I do with it.

This is what I came up with:
I stamped the image on shinny paper with India Black Ink. This is the best ink for shinny paper.
I sponged the sunset colors on the shinny paper and them colored the roof tops of the light house with a Tombow Marker.

I have no clue who made this lighthouse stamp, it is on cling and no names anywhere.

Last, I added the Be Happy stamp from Endless Creations on the Modern Label Punch from Stampin Up.

Gorgeous card I think.

Hello Baby

Isn't this the cutest card.
Did you notice the bird in the tree? So cute. Adorable baby clothes hanging on the line.

This is from Flourishes, they have the most unique stamps. Some of them are very classic flowers and others are super cute. Their line of Christmas Stamps are gorgeous. Love them.

I used so saffron satin ribbon from Stampin Up. 

I colored the image with Tombow markers.

Thanks for visiting my blog today and hope you come back again soon.

Happy Anniversary

Back again with a gorgeous card for you.

Well, I think it is gorgeous anyway.
Just love the color and the sponging.
I punched out the heart on the pink paper, 
then stamped vines on a piece of scrap paper.
I glued the vines behind the open heart.
Added some rhinestones, ribbon rose and some twine
and perfect for anyone.
Border trim is punched with the lacy Stampin Up border punch.
Then sponge it with pink ink.
Makes a pretty border.

Stamps: There She Goes and Great Impressions
Paper: My stash
Punches: Stampin Up

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope to see you again.

Best Wishes

I needed a card for an elderly lady, and I like the vintage look. This is what I come up with...
Don't you think these colors are perfect for the vintage look? 

You can't go wrong using the violet and olive green for a Vintage Card. 
I added the butterflies for accents.  

Paper from my stash, love the news print and the lacy look of the purple. 
Stamps are from Stampin Up
May Arts Olive sheer ribbon
Best Wishes from a sticker sheet
Punches from Stampin Up 
And the border punch is from Martha Stewart.

Hope you enjoyed stopping by and come back again soon. 
Thank You

There is so much to be grateful for in this world today. 
The first thing is your family and then your health. Hopefully everything else will fall in place. 

The wheat stems are so calm and peaceful. Really an awesome stamp. From Stampin Up. 
I tried to get the wheat the right color, so I used a Zig Marker that was named wheat, so if it isn't the right color, I will blame it on the Zig Marker. 
I love the stripped paper, and the brads add to the little flowers. 
Gorgeous bluey-green color on the vase/pail. 

Thanks for visiting. 
Hope you liked my card. 
All your comments are very welcomed

What's the Buzzz?

I have a quick post for you today.
Love the beehive...
The card base is a different size than usual, I wanted to make it a square, but the scallop die is just a little bit bigger on the length than the width. But I think it is cute just the way it is.
The sentiment is really cute and the bees are adorable.
I used a new die from Memory Box. It is the black circle behind the image. It is called "Whimzy Circle". Memory Box has a lot of gorgeous dies. I can't wait to get my hands on some more of them. I sell the dies if you are interested in them. You can go to Memory Box's web page and check them out. ( ). 
Well, that is it for today, hope to get some more cards on here soon. 
Thanks for visiting my blog and come back again soon.

Here's the dirt

How about a PINK pig?

Not one of my favorite animals. But this pink pig is a cutie. And the sentiment is totally awesome with the pig.
"Here's the dirt."
And the inside sentiment, is 
"A little birdie told me it was your birthday."
So cute.

So perfect that Great Impression had so many cute stamps this month. Let's hope next month has some great stamps too. If you're interested in purchasing some of these stamps from Great Impressions, let me know. I would be more than happy to help you out. Just email me and let me know.
Below is the stamps that were released for July.

Check out the new stamps for July 2012

Gorgeous stamps this month. Well, I enjoyed stamping with them.

Miss You

Here is another great card from the card party I had last weekend.

Love the mail boxes and the little snail, he is a cutie.

I colored them with pencils and blended them with Gamsol. They were so easy to color and I thought they colored great. I used a darker color around the mailboxes to match for a shadowed look.

I used a EK Success border punch to make the holes in the border.

Adding the "Miss You" for the sentiment. Goes well with the mailboxes.

Design paper is from my stash and the stamps are from Great Impressions.

Thanks for checking out my blog and come back again soon.

Give me the Simple Life

Another card from my card party last weekend. 
I had an awesome party, lots of fun and a most creative day for everyone. 
I want to Thank You to all of you who came and made the cards.  

I made this card as an easel card, I really think this style is so nice. 
It stays up right where ever you display it. 
The milk crate looks very old and the bottles, well they sure match the crate. And look at the super cute label on the crate.  
I colored the image with prisma pencils. Love the browns and orange flowers. It could be used as a Fall card with these colors. I used the square bigz die from Sissix. Along with some drywall tape for the layer behind the square. I then pierced the corners with holes. 
I used the label punch from EK Success for my sentiment layer. Popped it up to hold the front of the card up so it would stand up. 

Stamps from Great Impressions

Stop back in tomorrow for another great card using stamps from Great Impressions.
Thanks for stopping by.

Pocket full of wishes

Great, this is the second day for posting, hope I can continue and post everyday. 

I made this card thinking of all the family that I need to send a card to and I thought it would work for anyone. 
The flowers are so bright and cheery to fit any kind of event. 
This one is for a birthday. 

I colored the pocket and flowers with prisma pencils and blended with Gamsol. I stamped an extra pocket and used a foam pop dot to make it off the original pocket. Love the layering. The lacy bottom border is from a Martha Stewart punch. The lacy layer is really a teal color and the camera really made it look a green. 

Stamps are from Great Impressions. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Breezy Summer Days

Isn't this the cutest, love the bibs.
The gorgeous clouds are perfect for the bibs hanging on the line. 

The stamps are from Great Impressions, 
I used prisma pencils to color and Gamsol to blend them with. 
The card has a red base and it is from Spellbinder. 

Thank you for stopping in to visit my blog.
 And if you comment, it will be greatly appreciated. 

So sorry I have been gone so long

Gosh, I can't believe it has been so long since I have posted. 
I guess that is what happens when you don't have a good camera and a light box to take pictures of your cards. 
Well, I have a new camera now, still don't have a light box, but hope my picture-taking will be okay. 

Hope I can remember how posting is done, since it's been so long.

Happy Birthday (Flowered Heart)

Just wanting to post a card so that I could let you know that I am still trying to get some cards on my blog. 
Some how I am having a hard time adding the cards that I make. This time it is TAXES and card parties. Just to much things going on at one time. Sorry that it is taking me forever to get my cards on here when I make them. 
This Birthday Heart card I made a while ago. I thought it was so pretty with all the colors in the heart. I added Happy Birthday that is a gold sticker. 
I like making the easel cards, I think they are so pretty. 

The watermelon colored ribbon and flowers makes the card very colorful. 

Stamp from Great Impressions. 
Paper from Bo Bunny 
Punches from Stampin Up

The bottom border is from a Martha Stewart Punch.

Stamps and the flower punch are from Stampin Up

Almost Easter Time

Here is a card I made a while ago. 
Love that monkey, 
and I wanted to share it with you. 
Don't you just love the bunny hop border. (Martha Stewart punch) 
I used watercolor pencils and the brown just didn't work like I wanted it, 
but I still wanted to share it. Maybe I will give that brown pencil another try later. 


                                                                    Inside of the card.

Thank You for stopping by. 
Have a great day and stop back in again.
