O Baby!!!

Good Morning Everyone!! i'm playing with my fonts and sizes. What do you think? to big? keep it?
Today's card features a image from High Hopes. Guess what I didn't use on this card??? can you tell? Nope I used stickles so not that...hmmm ...LOL!
Ok so I used DP from Little Yellow Bicycle called Baby Safari, well it comes in a scalloped circle so my first thought was it would be cute with buttons all around and then my next thought was i'll sew them all down, so yes, there all sewn down. I have the two extra pictures to show you a better close up of the buttons and the image itself because I put stickles on the pacifier. The rhinestones and little flowers are from CTMH and so are all the buttons. I hope everyone has a good weekend!
Thank you! Come Again!

Good Morning Everyone!!! Yay! it's Friday!!!
Today's card features a image I got from my friend Tammy (thank you) she's a DT member for The Greeting Farm.
The DP is from DCWV travel pack, isn't it the cutest? I used bazzill solid red cardstock under the flowers and punched out the scallops with my SU punch. Guess what??? I used STICKERS again! the bottle and shaker box picture frame are from Jolee's. The flower that's on the corner is a pop dotted embellishment, i'm not sure from were. I added a sticker sentiment ALOHA on Bazzill red.... I so wanted to put stickles on Anya's flowers but thought you guys would get tired of me always using stickles. LOL! but Anya is cut out and pop dotted on the corner (doing her thang) hehe..
So what do you think???? I likey :)
Thank you!!! Come Again!

I'm Bringing STICKERS back!!!!

Good Morning Everyone!!! Ok so i'm bringing stickers back. LOL! this card is made with the idea of the dino stickers in my head. Yep! so all the dino's are fuzzy stickers. The image is from C.C. Designs. I used DP from Basic Grey and Dew Drops... What do you think?? does it work? be honest.... :)
This card is made using a 8x8 piece of cardstock with Cosmo Cricket DP. The image, ribbon and brads are all from CTMH. This is such an oddball size card (hence oddball Thursday) but I like it! I think i'm hooked. I'll be making more in the future and you know what the other cool part is about this size..it fits into a business envelope..yippee..
So tell me what you think...Like? don't like?
Thank you Everyone!!

Two --- Ferssss...

Of course DEW DROPS..LOL! they add so much I think :) ..The green paper is paper pieced next to the DP.. That's it! I like this card and it was fun to create...
The second card has an image from WOJ, I love Charlotte! The DP is Basic Grey, ribbon is MISC. The Hardware is from SU and the sentiment is from ..Hmmm I don't know..LOL! I can't find it. Sheesh I better clean my stamp room...But this is another fast, fun card. I love the colors.

Spring Christmas...

Good Morning Everyone! Hope everyone's weekend was fun!
Today's card features a image from High Hopes. Don't you just love this image? They have one that's a cowboy, O man I have to order that one. I heat embossed my image colored it in with my markers and heat embossed over it again to set the ink, I cut out the image pop dotted it. The rhinestones are from CTMH. I also paper pieced around the red paper. The paper is from Cosmo Cricket. I used twine around the paper and put an embellishment (charm) hanging from it. I love the paper clips from Making Memories so I used them again :) So this is my Spring Christmas Card.....
That's it..
Thank You! Come Again!

Lay Down For Some Ice Cream........

Good Afternoon Everyone!! Today's card features a image from House Mouse, isn't it adorable.The Ice cream itself I used a pink Souffle pen to add dimension, so it's textured...
The solid Bazzill paper under the image, I adhered together and added the making memories paper clips. I wanted the look as if it was a hanging picture :) I also added twine to the clips and the buttons on the bottom. The DP is glittery and it's from I think Mind's Eye or DCWV.. I was playing with this photo last night and I thought I lighten it up ok but now looking at it, it looks kinda washed out, sheesh sorry! Im trying... :)
Have a great day today!! Thank You!

Circles, Circles and more Circles...

Good Morning Everyone!!!
Today's card features an image I received from my friend Tammy. This image is from The Greeting Farm. She's a DT member for them, you need to check out her blog is fabulous http://funpapercandy.com.
The Dp is from the new PP called Baby Safari from Little Yellow Bicycle. It's to cute! I played all day with this paper, so you'll see more of this paper soon. The flat brads surrounding the paper are from CTMH and I used Taylored Expressions jewels on the top of each of them. I used my new Nesties for the green paper and used a white gel pen on the spikes of the green. The image itself is pop dotted and I used Shimmerz to add sparkleys to the paper. The ric rac is also from Tammy, Making Memories makes it. In the picture it shows the right hand side a bent side but in real life it doesn't look bad :) LOL!..Well have a great day everyone! I'm off to the beach to freeze my pa tooty off, it's so cold. yikes!
Thank you! Come Again!

Good Afternoon Everyone!! Hopefully everyone is starting off today with a good start :)
Today's card features a image from Paper Makeup Stamps this is Kirsten. I started off by distressing my Basic Grey DP, just the top triangle. The Purple DP is also from Basic Grey Wisteria collection. I used flower soft on her wings and stickles for the flower she's holding. The sentiment says "scatter seeds of kindness everywhere you go" I used ribbon from Wal-Mart and CTMH. The white paper that she is stamped on is also distressed. The rhinestones on the corners are from Taylored Expressions. That's it! :)
Well hope you all have a great weekend! Be Safe!
LOL! to the people that "lurk" LOL! it's ok, sometimes we don't have time to comment and that's perfectly understandable. I just figured I better step up my game and give you some wowie cards..hehe. So no worries but thank you for the reassurance. My kids have picked the cards to show you for this week, so stay tuned :)
Thank you! Come again!

Flutter Anya...Accordian Fold

Good Morning Everyone!! well today is oddball Thursday :) i'm calling it oddball because I normally do 6x6 cards and this is so not the norm for me. I don't actually feel I have creative capabilities with smaller cards BUT I will say I like this card, it was simple but fun two words that I usually describe for my artwork. I used my Fave for the base (guess who) .hehe. All the DP is from Stampin Up! I bought some new Nesties and OMG there so much fun..
Who doesn't recognize this image :) it's Flutter Anya from The Greeting Farm. I used Stickles on everything she's wearing and even her hair, she's very sparkly. The ribbon and buttons are from CTMH. The pearls that are in the inside corners are from Queen & CO. The clasp in the front of the card is chipboard that I covered with the same DP as the inside. The sentiment is another Misc. (meaning i've had forever and don't know were I got it from)...Well that's it!
I added a picture of the front closed and a better close up of Anya. So I hope you like it as much as I do :)
Have a good day everyone! come again!

2... day :)

Good Morning Everyone!!! It's Wednesday Yay!
I have two cards for you today but until I uploaded them I didn't realize that they were so dark, so sorry about that. This first card is Bazzill pink base. I used Basic Grey DP. The image is from Stampin Up, this was a real simple card, ribbon wrapped around the DP and I used rhinestones to accent the flowers in the image and the CTMH flowers on the corners. With one button to break it up a little.That's it easy peasy :)

This card uses a image from Paper Makeup stamps. I bought a few from them so i'll have more in the future. This card doesn't really wow me but it was fun and different. The brads on top of the image actually have this cute fuzz on them. I can't remember who makes the DP but wow it's not Basic Grey.LOL! Have I told everyone how much I love distressed paper. It's awesome..hehe. I put little Taylored Expressions rhinestones on the corners of the image and used Stampin Up's punch. The ribbon is misc. I finally got to use the decorative needles I bought from the scrapbook convention. So this card is another simple one...
Thank you for stopping by.... :)
I think I may make Thursdays ODDBALL day.LOL! ya know the cards that aren't 6x6 (shock) I actually made a couple that I liked in the last few days. So stayed tuned tomorrow will be the first day..

Super Hero Billy!!

Good Morning Everyone!!! Hope your weekend was fun :) Thank you for the nice comments yesterday.
Today's card finally features Billy from Pink Cat Studios. I used Bazzill base and Basic Grey DP (Marrakech) I also went through all my supplies and found this piece of chipboard from Technique Tuesday, well I thought hmmm LOL! I wonder if I can stamp directly onto it? well Lo and Behold.. I could! and to top it off I colored directly onto the chipboard and it did not bleed, double yay! well I thought it needed some Bling and what do I have yep you guessed it Dew Drops..hehe I love these things. I surrounded Billy with dew drops. The star in the corner is another piece of chipboard I covered with a piece of orange cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set onto a round tag and adhered it onto the star. Well everything worked (surprise!) I liked it :) The ribbon is misc ribbon. well that's it :)

Good Morning Everyone!!! Thank you for the wonderful comments yesterday! I like reading them :) remember you have till tomorrow morning to make a comment on that card for a chance to win the gift card. O and just in case you don't like Starbucks and you win you'll have a chance to pick a Target Gift card instead of Starbucks..Ok????
Today's card features a image from High Hopes stamps. I saw somewhere someone was having a challenge you had to use glitter on your card, well then this idea popped into my head when I was looking at my stash of Rubba..LOL! why not use glitter on his mane, well no one was around to tell me any different ;) so I did and I loved the effect. I used DP from The Pet Stack from DCWV. Dew Drops of course.LOL! Bazzill brown is behind the image. Ribbon Is misc. That very cute mouse hanging from the hemp string is from Making Memories. I also used Stampin Up's punch to notch out the corners of all the DP..Well I think that's it :)
Thank you Everyone!!! Come Again! Stay tuned for tomorrow's card it will feature MFT...
O and before I forget there was a question about yesterday's card from Diana. The shiny stuff on the turtle's shell was the glare from the camera. Almost all of my images are heat embossed. I like to color and not have the colors bleed into the black ink so this method guarantees that it doesn't. Plus I like the black outline :)

Good Afternoon Everyone!! Hope your day is going good. Mine has been fun so far, got a nice ticket from the very friendly CHP officer..LOL! O well :)..
Today's card features a image from Pink Cat Studios, Lily at the beach. Well I will say my family LOVED this card, I impressed them how about that..LOL! I have the 6x6 Travel stack from DCWV, well when I saw this paper I had an idea, then a layout formed in my head. I cut the top part of the DP and on the bottom I laid down some red tape and added some sand I had from our vacation in Hawaii a few years ago. (so yes real sand is on this card) Wha La! presto I had a 3D and a technique effect with no fuss :) I colored Lily cut her out and pop dotted her onto the sand. I also added seashell buttons to finish it off....What do you think????? Like It???? well leave a comment on this card and you will be entered to win a $25.00 Starbucks gift card!

2 Simple and Fun...

Good Morning Everyone!!! Thank you for the sweet comments yesterday!
Today's card features two images from The Greeting Farm. Wendy and Peter Pan. I will say they are so much fun to color :) the first card is so simple but I love the colors. I used Bazzill base and cut some Basic Grey DP into squares, added dew drops to the corners and added Ric Rac ribbon in the middle, pop dotted the image so it was not lying flat. I also added a rub on sentiment. That's it :) simple and clean...

This card is similar to what i've done before. I heat embossed the image after I colored it added
a post it note to separate the dark brown from the sky blue. I used my Stampin Up Punch to get the corners. I also added brads in all the corners and a metal sentiment in the middle, the sentiment say "my wish for you"
Well I think i'm almost to 1,000 hits so I think it'll be time for blog candy tomorrow!!! so stay tuned. Tomorrow's card will feature Lily at the beach from Pink Cat Studios. My DH and DD picked this card. They loved it so that's the one they want me to feature..LOL!!

Today's card features a stamp image from Jessica Lynn Original. Isn't this a sweet image. I bought more of them so i'll have more to show you in the future. Bazzill base :) Basic Grey DP and corkboard! that was a lot of fun to use.. the skull is chipboard from Rusty Pickle and I covered it with Fun Flock. I have had this fun flock for maybe 10 years and now figured out how to use it..LOL!! I know there's more of you like that, so I challenge you to find something in your scrap room that you've never figured out how to use and go to YOUTUBE find what it is you found and see how to use it from them, it works! The stitching is from a stamp set from CTMH called Simple Stitches.. I had a blast with this card, hope you like it :) Remember you can click on the pictures to see them better.

A card that I love!!!!

Good Morning Everyone!!! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!!!Thank you for the outstanding comments you have been leaving me!!! They make me feel good! ((hugs to all))
Todays card features a Sarah Kay image I got from a SCS WRAK member Jane White. Thank you! I had a dream the other night and woke up with this sketch in my head and went with it and I will say I love it. It's my favorite one so far. LOL!
I used Basic Grey Eva DP. I used a Magic Scraps Two-Fold Fastener on the side and threaded ribbon through it and tied them into a knot. If you click on the picture you can see it better, the prongs are the green thing sticking up on the top and bottom. I also put a jumbo white brad on the corner and the ladybug is actually a brad that I altered, I took off the prongs added a pop dot and adhered it to the top, the image itself is pop dotted too. Did I already say that I think this card is so pretty..LOL!! Agustina I will be submitting this one, wish me luck everyone!!
Thank you for visiting me!! Hope your day is filled with LOVE, KISSES and HUGS!!!

Want an apple???

Good morning Everyone!!! Thank you for the wonderful comments yesterday. They sure are appreciated!
Today's card features a image I got from RAK quite awhile back. I think it's from the House Mouse line. I just love these guys. You'll see more from me in the future using them. There's not one of them that's not darling. I started by coloring the image. I used my versamark pen to go over what I colored then heat embossed to set the color. I used the post it note technique again (love Zindorf) to mask the area I wanted to be grass and the other to be the sky. I used the totally awesome stamp set Lovely As a Tree from Stampin Up to add the trees in the background. I also paper pieced the bottom of the card. I really wanted the focus to be on the image so I only added ribbon and a sentiment. Because of the work using the image it's not a simple card..LOL! that's why I didn't want to feature it on Simple Wednesdays :) All my bases are from Bazzill and there 6x6..
Thank you everyone!
Have a great day! Come again!

Double picture day Wednesday

Good Morning Everyone! Thank you so much for such AWESOME comments you have all left me. It means so much :)
Today I decided that I want to make Wednesdays my double picture day, it's for the cards that I think are cute but SIMPLE...basically flowers, buttons and some ribbon..LOL!
The first card here uses the Stamp from The Greeting Farm (awesome stamps) called Fairy Chloe, isn't she so cute! I used shimmerz for her hair and clothes. I also cut her out and pop dotted her, so it looks like she's flying off the circle. In the future I will take pictures from the sides to better show you what I mean. The flower, brad, sassy strand and buttons are all from CTMH. The DP is from Stampin Up..
Thank you!

The second card uses a whole heck of a lot of products..LOL! The stamp image is from Whiff Of Joy (another awesome company). Stampin Up punch, dew drops and prima flowers. Not to much wow factor to these cards but cute, I thought. LOL!
All cards are 6x6

Thank you so much. Have a great day everyone!! Come again!

Giddy Up!

Good Morning Everyone! Biggest Loser is on tonight! whoo hoo..

Ok this card features Billy from Pink Cat Studios. I just love there stamps! you'll see way more of them from me in the future..I stamped Billy in versamark then Pallette Noir black, heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder, I colored him in, then used a versamark pen to go over the coloring and used clear embossing powder again to set the image. I used a post it note to seperate were I wanted the grass to go and the sky, I used a sponge to get the colors I wanted. WOW! I just noticed that the sky is washed out in this picture, it's not supposed to be a gloomy day. Sorry, so in your head imagine a sky that is blue..LOL! ok back to the original scheduled program...I then used one of my favorite Stampin Up sets called scenery to add the rocks and mountains. The DP is from basic grey. The hardware is also from Stampin Up..
That's all folks!! hopefully you'll like this card as much as I do :)
Have a good day everyone! come again :)

Burt Needs A Bath..

Good Morning everyone!! Thank you for the comments yesterday, they sure were appreciated..
Today's card is a mixture of products..LOL! I never have been an exclusive girl. I love a lot of stamp companies and i'm a paper addict. I admit it.
All my cards are 6x6 and I love Bazzill, so most of my bases are from them. The DP, ribbon are all from Stampin Up. The stamp image is from High Hopes called Burt's Bath. The sentiment is from Just Rite Stamps. The brads i've had forever. You won't be able to see from the picture (not till I get better at taking pictures) but I used Stickles on the bubbles, so they are three dimensional ..
Remember you can click on the picture to see it better...
I think that's it for now...thank you for visiting..

My 1st picture post

This is my very first picture post!! yay!! hopefully things will get easier for me..I have to thank my husband for doing so much for me today..it's taken us all day to figure all this stuff out, from watermarks to background selections, font sizes and text sizes and colors..wow the list goes on..thank you Tim..
If anyone has suggestions on anything please let me know. I would appreciate it..Pictures to big? can't see enough detail?
All my cards are 6x6 that's my favorite size to work with..
Thank you everyone..I hope you like my cards :)

This Is My First Post!!!

Ok just trying to get a feel for how this works..Everyone who knows me, knows I can't correctly write so please bear with me when I start posting, you are going to see a lot of run on sentences and incorrect punctuation. I don't think I will screw up spelling (spell check) small miracles..
I'm starting this blog because of my husband and daughter. They feel that my cards are worthy of showing off. Aren't they sweet! probably lying there butts off but still...I like them too :)
So hopefully i'll have a few followers in the near future....
