Hello fellow crafters..
I really miss playing in my craft room and participating in challenges but more than that I really miss looking at all the creative cards you all come up with..
I spent a good part of my Sunday today blog surfing and the day went by so
I have been really busy working a lot of OT at my new job and also I have finally gotten myself back in the gym but it leaves a small window for my crafting......but I will get better.
This past week I have been searching for a way to get rif of the stray cats in my area.....they have never really been a problem until recently....usually they poop in the yard and every now and then....they get into the trash but this last week they have decided to rip up all the seat cushions on my pation furniture so now they have to go.... I have been looking for an organization that will come capture them for me,,,,,if you all have any ideas....let me for now I am not able to sit and enjoy my backyard....cant afford to replace the cushions
So even though it was a pretty day today I stayed inside and worked on a card...
The image is from Tiddly Inks and this was my first time coloring it....
it was kinda hard for me and I think I will try this one again soon. but here you go....

Charlie's Angels from Greeting Farm

Hello fellow crafters,
What a nice long weekend...hopefully you all had some good BBQ because I
My new job is super busy and my team has been working alot of OT but I did not go in this weekend and now Im glad I didnt....I had a great weekend and today I played in my craft room all day.
I worked on two cards but I finished one.
This card is for Dejua, my little niece has been in the hospital with HLH for a while now.
I get her little gifts every week....but this week I made her this card....
The images are from Greeting Farm.
I really have a hard time finding different paper, I only have micheals and Joann fabrics in my area and they seem to have the same paper all the time, so last week... on my way home from work I found a new craft store and bought this paper stack by GCD Studios called Spring in husband said it was too busy but I like it and I think Dejua will too.

I miss Everyone

Hello fellow crafter,
Today is one of the first days that I came home from my new job and didn't shower and fall asleep
I hope that I am finally adjusting to working again.
I have also been working alot of over time so I haven't had time to color or even go to the gym but I am working on getting both back in my routine.
Chanel has recovered perfectly from her little grooming accident and she is running and jumping all over the house again.
I really miss following all the blogs and soaking up the fun and inspiration....I really feel like I'm missing out on all the new stamp releases...I am also working on getting a tablet so I can jump online on my lunch
anyway I will figure it out cause I miss my card making:)

bye for now

Scrapbook Expo 2011

Hello fellow crafters,
Yesterday I went to my first scrapbook convention and it was FANTASTIC! of course I have nothing to compare it to but I thought it was great...there were so many vendors with different paper crafting things and ideas....of course I spent all my money within the first 40 minutes of being there...I couldn't help it.
There were tons of DP and embellishing flowers and to top it off....there was a booth selling Copic markers for 3.99!!!!!!!
I bought as many as I could
Unfortunately I didn't sign up for the workshops so I think I missed out on the best part but next year...I know what to expect and I plan of signing up early.
So today was going to be my day to play but I didn't get a chance to because Chanel was getting groomed this morning and the groomer accidentally cut a piece of her ear, so we spent a good part of the day at the Vet.
I do have one card to post this week, its an image from MDP for the easel challenge.

Back to work for me

Hello fellow crafters....

I have been sleeping in for the past 6 months and playing in my craft room or going to the gym....basically just doing whatever I want....NO
Anyway....I am trying to adjust quickly, today is the first day I didnt come home, shower and stare at the TV.
So I am sorry If I am not able to follow everyone as much as I have been but I promise to to keep following.
I have a card to post that I made this weekend for my husbands boss....his wife is having a baby boy soon.
I also made a little box to put the card in.
The image is from Digital Pencil....I love this  little sleeping angel...
 I found a tutorial on how to make the box on Paper Crafting in Cocoa...Iris is very talented and there are lots of beautiful projects on her blog

Second gel card attempt

Hello again,
I had to try another gel card, as fun as the first one was...I was not happy submitting it for the Tiddly Inks Challenge....and I learned alot from my first card.
I think I did better this time.
I cut out my snow globe with my cricut (I think it was doodle bug cartridge)...not sure because I used my Gypsy.
I inked my snow globe with Tim Holtz distressed inks.
I used a smaller plastic baggie and much much less hair gel.
I put Martha Stewart fine glitter in the gel and stamped a sea horse under the gel ( on the first layer of my hopefully  he looks like he is swimming happily under the
I used a Sugar Plum stamp image for my mermaid...and this is what I got.

I am enerting this card if the following challenges:
Tiddly Inks Gel Card Challenge
Crafting for all seasons sea challenge
Try it on Tuesday beach challenge Spnsored by Once Stop Card Crafts

My firts Gel Card

Hello fellow crafters
Its a very pretty Saturday morning and Ive decided to post the card I made 2 days
I'm going to give you warning.....its a hot mess....but its my first gel card and i spent two days on this card so I'm posting
Anyway there is a challenge at Tiddly Inks for a gel card and I had no clue what a gel card I checked out YouTube and watched a few videos then I was off to the dollar store to buy some hair gel...
This card came out horrible but I did have fun making it and I think I learned how to make it better for the next attempt....
Next time I will cut the window smaller and I will use less gel.teehee
Since I used a regular snack sandwich baggie, when I folded the bag to fit in my card....gel spilled all over the what a mess but here is my finished card.

Tickled Pink Feather Challenge

Hello fellow crafters, I have a card I wanted to post for the TP Challenge # 31
The challenge was to use feathers.
I happen to have these  yellow and orange feathers ......and I dont remeber why I bought these colors....I think I just liked the colors and they were cheap....anyway I had to make my card to match the feathers...
I dont think I would have chosen these colors for this image but it ended up working out.

Challenge Card

Hello and good day!
Im working on a few different things, first of all I want to make bigger cards. When I first started trying to make cards I learned from MPS to take 8.5 x 11 inch card stock and cut in half and thats the size of the card.
As I learn more and more about card making, I realize that is not big enough to add details and back ground so I am working on different sized cards now.
This card is 4 x 6 completely by but I liked having a bigger base to work with.
The Theme of this card is GONE WITH THE WIND
I am entering this card in the following challenges.

Tiddly Inks Reel me in Challenge # 57

Fun in the Sun

Hello again....I had to do one more post today....I was so excited about this card I made....
I got the Idea to make my own card stock from a wonderful website called....
I found Melissa's blog during the stamp release for Tiddly Inks and Make it Crafty....and I have been stocking her blog every since....she has beautiful cards and she makes her own cardstock I decided to try my hand at this.....I love how this turned out!
I started with white cardstock and stamped it all over with a 1.00 stamp I purchased from Joann Fabrics...I used Memento ink....Then I just started coloing in the images with my copics....then I topped it off with some Martha Stewart  fine glitter.....not bad for my first try...
The main image is Moes Digital Pencil called Umbrella....I love her....she is chilling enjoying her cocktail....Im sure I will use this image
Oh yeah and I found this website that gives free sentiments HERE and another one HERE...pretty cool.

I entered this card in the Stampinsanity summer challenge.

Happy Sunday

Hello and good day...
I am playing in my craft room today and I have a couple of things to show you.... I purchased  a Clip it up organizer from Walmart...I think it was 55.00 and only available online in my area....I am using it for my stamp actually bigger that I thought but I think I'm going to get alot of use out of it.....also there is another piece you can buy an add to the top so you get two racks.
I also made a card today...I thought it was for a challenge but when I was done...I forgot what challenge it was oh well....still a fun image to color.

Kenny K Anything goes Challenge

Hello and good day!
Yesterday I finished another great blog hop over at Kenny Ks Kraft Girls blog, another great bunch of talented ladies and I really love the Kenny K of my favorites was The Big O....too cute and of course I have already purchased that Digi.
Well I had to make a card to go along with the blog hop so I picked one of my other favorite Kenny K Stamps...this one is called bling baby.
This is the first time I tried picking my CS first then coloring my image to match the paper I had chose.
I think this may be a better way to start a the past I would color my image first....then scramble to find CS on hand that matched...anyway here is what I created.

Whimsical Wednesday Challenge # 12 Lets get Patriotic

Hello and good day fellow crafters.
I had such a hard time using the red copic markers for this challenge...I actually colored this image 3 times and when I realized I wasnt getting any better I gave up...LOL ....for now at least.
I only have a couple red markers so the next set of 12 markers I get  ( I buy 12 at a time on ebay for 51.00)
I will try some different shades of red.
No matter what method I tried....the red color bleeds out of the lines...I have not had that problem with any of the other dosent really matter as long as we have fun....right?
I still like my card as long as you look at it from a the challenge was to use a brad or bling or a button...I thought I would try to use all 3 but could only make it work with a button and always...THE BLING!!

Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge # 54

Hello and good day!
Today was a little mini Christmas for me because I received some new Stamps.
I really like the convenience of the Digi stamps get your stamps but for some reason....I cant figure why.....I just like having the rubber stamps in my
I like having my image in my collection....its probably because I am not a computer person so I am always fearful that I will delete the digi images by accident or something.
So today I received a couple Tilda stamps that are soooo cute I couldn't decide which one to use first.
I was able to practise my copic coloring and also cutting the image one your done coloring is not so easy for me.....but I say it all the time.....its fun trying!
