You can click the picture for a better view. I couldn't resist using more of the Basic Grey Euphoria collection.. When I saw this sketch awhile ago I knew I wanted to make the middle into a bookmark.

This is what an explosion looks like in my room..

OK so I have to show you my craft desk.....I'm sure I'm not the only one. I find it funny though that this is what it looks like after making today's blog post card and tomorrow's card. ALL my cards take a few hours to make. Making cards doesn't come easy to me and I really have to try. That's why when I discovered that I can do sketches after being so scared of them for so many years and looking at them with a glazed look in my eye. That's actually what I like to do! It is challenging but so much fun and I can't get enough of them. LOL! (shh because I know you couldn't tell hehe.. anyways sheesh got off track... I had to be brave and show you what my desk looks like when I'm done..I have to do a cleaning spree when I get done with this post and tomorrow I'll show you what I start off with..LOL! my hubby Tim when he's home he sits with me in my office and plays on the computer and talks to me while I craft and he usually doesn't care that it takes me hours to finish one..LOL! but when I'm done making a card he tells me I did a great job and looks at my desk smiles and snickers...is that true love or what..LOL!!! so anyways I'm done writing my novel and I hope you can relate....have a good night..

Trick Or Treat!!

Hi Everyone!!!! thank you for all the sweet comments! today's card features an image from CTMH and I thought it fit this new DP I picked up at Michael's the other day:)
I followed a sketch from The Fresh Batch you can find them here By golly I think I did it! the link! whoo hoo!!! anyways there having a sketch challenge and if they like your work they'll pick you to be a quest designer..I think that would be awesome..so here's my entry..I must say this was tough! but I hope you guys like it LOL!!
I used SU Rich Razzleberry for my base. All the DP is from Recollections (Halloween). I also Pop Dotted the Halloween sayings on the bottom right, plus the cat. I hid the dew drops so shhh..hehe..the Ribbon is from CTMH and the orange string is just embroidery thread....well what do you think??? please give me your input...O and my Nephew liked it so it's going to him for Halloween..LOL! he's 2.......so it impressed him :) so I have 1 I LIKE IT! LOL!!!
But please come back tomorrow I have another card that was fun to create and I think you'll like it :) have a great day!!!
Thank You!!! Come Again!!!

My Favorite Card!!

Hi Everyone!! The winner of the Anya or Ian of her choice is GINA! so email me and let me know which one you want :) Thank You!!!
Today's card is so far my favorite I love everything about it. In fact Chiy claimed it as a birthday card for her best friend. LOL! This is a Mojo Monday sketch that's altered just a little but I think still qualifies. The base and solid cardstock are all from CTMH. All the DP is from Basic Grey the Euphoria line. When I saw the paper I immediately thought of Megan from TGF I haven't used her yet and I bought her a long time ago so Yay! finally! .... All the bling, ribbon, flowers and circle embelly are from CTMH. The paper clip is from Making Memories and the little flower button is from SU... Well I'm going to stick this card into the TGF's gallery and I hope people there will enjoy it :) have a good Thursday...

Wanna Hula???

Hi Everyone!!! it's already Wednesday sheesh... Well today's card features an image from TGF. My favorite stamp company! there actually having a DT shout out but I don't want to try out right now I really don't feel that I have it. I've seen some of my fellow bloggers work and there submitting work that's outstanding and holy crud I'm not that good. so maybe next time. I do hope you like what I make though..LOL!!
The card base is SU Melon Mambo and the DP is from Michael's and I forgot to keep the name of it..sorry :( but it's Hawaiian themed and I thought it would be fitting for the image. I used my metal flower embellishment s that I had in my "stash" I also pop dotted her onto the circle and used stickles in her flower and a dew drop to pop out the flower. This is a real simple card.... I hope you have a great day...and I will have Cordell pick a name from a hat tonight to see who won the Anya/Ian stamp of there choice....so I'll announce it in the morning...
Thank You!! Come Again!!

Baby Boy....

Hi Everyone!!!! Well for the first time I was asked to participate in a challenge. The challenge was to make a baby card. So I combined a baby card and Taylored Expressions sketch challenge. What do you think? don't the smashed peas on the babies mouth bring back memories..LOL! The challenge is the first from a new group called Ai Factory.. Through Paper Planet I think there linked.. Need to find out more info but with school starting and Cordell's birthday it's been a little hectic. So forgive me....
I used Making Memories Kids Collection (Ethan) DP...The image is from Inkadinkado. I also paper pieced all around the edges of the DP and image. The button with the rocking horse is adhered to a circle tag that I sponged green onto to soften the white... I wasn't going to BUT I had to! I used my Dew Drops..LOL!!! gosh dang I love these things and good thing I have an endless supply.. I seriously cant help myself... so hopefully you understand... well that's it for today and now I'm off to create! yay!! ME TIME!!! whoo hoo...
Thank You!! Come Again!!

I Wanna Sing!!

Hi Everyone!!! Thank you for all the comments I have received this week..they are all appreciated! and did you guys see on the post yesterday that Beate commented on my card! wow! what an honor..if you don't know she's royalty of card making LOL!... well today's card features a image from The Greeting Farm. TGF also had a sketch challenge that I really wanted to play with..Here's my card :) It asked for stitching and hopefully I stepped up to the plate. I'm not sure if you can see in the picture but I stitched on the left and right side of the DP and on either side of the image. The DP is some glittery goodness from My Mind's Eye called Festive and Frost..The bottom DP is so fitting I thought because it has singing notes.. The fibers on the corners of the image is also some glittery Christmas red. O and just in case you don't know this is a Christmas card..LOL!!! (non traditional) ;)...The glittered red brads and ribbon are from my "stash".... the sentiment is a rub on..... Taylored Expressions mini rhinestones finish off the card...... have a great Sunday .. I have two more sketch challenges to show you Mon and Tues so stay tuned and I have applied to 3 design teams I hope I can make at least one... so keep your fingers crossed for me.... :)

I had such a hard time coming up with something and I'm not all that thrilled with how it turned out :( but here ya go..what do you think?? I used textured cardstock from CTMH and I got to play with my new Basic Grey PP called June Bug. Weird colors are in this pack and that presents it's own challenge..LOL! but I love Basic Grey so I will figure it out....This image is from Stamping Bella I just bought it and had to ink it up :) The chipboard flower is from Michael's dollar bin. The ribbon is from my "stash" and of course my teeny tiny dew drop is in the center of the flower.. Well that's it :)

Well today's card features a image I have used before it's from C.C Designs and it's the Go Prehistoric set. Before we left last week I made this card while watching Evolution with my son. Super funny movie and I don't do comedies but shoot this one I like a lot.......This is a card using SCS sketch challenge # 213 and I went way outside my comfort zone and made a scene out of the images and I can say ya I don't think I'll be doing that again. It's weird but Chiyanne said she liked it and I better post it, so I was TOLD..lol! what do you think? The base is SU soft suede and the solid cardstock is also SU I'm not sure but I think this DP is from Basic Grey.

Criss Cross

Hi Everyone!! Well today's the last Saturday before school starts and I had to spend my whole day today sitting in traffic school. What's so sad is I'll be back there in two years!! LOL! I get a ticket every two years like clockwork and it's always on a Thursday!! yep! no lie! LOL!
Well today's card is a Christmas card it's a criss cross card. What do you think? I like it hehe..All the cardstock and DP is from SU and the snowflake button is from CTMH. From my "stash" the metal snowflake embellishment I think it's from Making Memories and the sticker saying happy holidays is from EK. The red string is actually Waxy Flax from Scrapworks. You can find the directions for the card on SCS. O and behind the card is a metal pail it's just to hold it up so I could take a picture. Well I need to clean my craft room so I can make it a mess again when I create :) I should take a picture of it...clean and not so clean..hehe...On another post comment I was invited to participate in another sketch challenge so I will be doing that.. :)...

Beautiful Sunny Miss Anya

Hi Everyone!!! I'm still in Disneyland so sorry I'm so late posting.... before I left home I was able to play with my new Basic Grey paper and can I say I love it!!! this one I used is called Lemonade. All the DP is Basic Grey except for the 6x6 base that's CTMH textured cardstock. The image is from The Greeting Farm it's from the Miss Anya collection. I used a sketch from SCS but I don't know the # , I left it at home..sorry! The pink and white brads on the side of her are from my "stash" but the other hardware is from SU. I used my souffle pen on her sunglasses,shoes, bow and on her shirt. The very pretty metallic glittery pink fiber is from CTMH. That's it :) I have to run so thank you for stopping by...
Thank You!!! Come Again!!

Tilda and my own sketch...

Hi Everyone! I'm at Disneyland blogging..LOL!! and my hubby Tim is rolling his eyes at me..hehe. so I'll be quick. I was looking through my "stash" of paper and ran across this cute coordinating paper that I've had forever, so I don't know the name of it. Then I started to look through all my stamps and since I had just bought this Tilda I thought it would be fun to use. This is my own sketch. What do you think?? I used CTMH textured base and cut down the striped DP, cut the circles from another DP and put solid cardstock behind it. The polka dot DP is cut and layered on the left hand side with CTMH ribbon attached. All the embellishments are from CTMH. I had to make Tilda sparkly so I colored her in with shimmerz. This card is very mellow in person, it has pink red and green all mixed together. Well that's it for now..I'm going to head back to D-Land and eat some JUNK :)
Thank You!!! Come Again!!

Also my son Cordell his birthday is August 24Th and I'm gonna ask everyone if you could send him a birthday card. I know he would love it and so would I!

Thank you so much!!!!
O and I will show the cards he receives on here...;)
OK today's card features Miss Anya. I've had in my "stash" forever this Paper and Girls just wanna have fun sticker. So I decided since they go so well together might as well use them :)
I used stickles in her bow and on her shorts the green matches the star in the sticker. The image is cut using my nesties and the pink cardstock was also cut out using the nestie die. The pearls all around the cardstock are from kaiser scrapbook. The pretty silk ribbon is misc. It's a totally retro card but it was fun to create. Hope you like it too! :) well have a good week everyone...
Thank You!! Come Again!!!

Painting And Thinking :)

Hi Everyone!! It looks like it's going to be another awesome day here in sunny California :) so I will be playing all day with my paper and stamps and loving every minute of it..Yay! I hope your day will be filled with positive things or people.....
So today's card is an image from Sarah Kay. I've had this stamp for quite awhile and finally inked her up (that sounds funny) hmmm LOL!!...anyways... :).... I had so much fun creating this card and it wasn't a sketch challenge (shock hehe). The base is SU Rich Razzleberry and all the DP is Cottage Wall from SU. Gosh this PP is my Favorite. I need to buy more. It's so pretty! Well it broke my heart again I had to use my 6x6 base for a mat, didn't I tell you guys in my last post how upsetting that was? no? well let me tell you again it hurt so bad I held my breath and cut, lips quivering the whole entire time...I know you understand :) but I LOVE THIS CARD! so I'm glad I cut. LOL! The flowers are a mixture of Prima and CTMH with my most favorite embellishment of all time Dew Drops! The glitter brads are part of my "stash" aren't they a perfect match though? One thing I didn't like is the SU whisper white cardstock that I stamped my image onto, it doesn't like to be colored with markers..bummer.. so it's not smooth coloring on my part but now I know.. so don't look to closely..hehe.. Well enough with my chit chat :) have a great weekend!
Thank You!! Come Again!!

Yummy Strawberries!!!

Hi Everyone!!! It's FRIDAY yay!!! G.I Joe time!!! LOL!! I love that cartoon..shhh!! so I can't wait to see the movie..Well today's card features an image from WOJ. This is my first time inking her up. If you look at her dress it has strawberries on it, along with apples. I wanted to play a sketch challenge that The Fresh Batch was hosting. http://sasthefreshbatch.blogspot.com/2009/08/stamps-and-smiles-sketch-challenge_06.html. So I hope they like this card. I'm in love with the In Colors from SU and I'm sad because I can't get the textured cardstock till my SU demo gets a big order together and I don't know when that will be so I had to cut into my 6x6 card bases to use as a mat and it nearly broke my heart..LOL!! BUT I did it....
So this card base and pink mat are from SU. I was able to go to a not so LSS and bought this pretty sparkly paper from Best Creation Inc. It's so pretty! and I also found new embellishments those big pink things in the corner are Crystal Stickers it says Cabochons ' Cabochons on the package I'm assuming it's not a bad word since it says it twice..LOL!!
The green flower is prima and the little rhinestones are from Taylored Expressions and the fiber is from my "stash"...so I hope you enjoy your Friday and I can't wait to show you my cards I made these past few days. So stay tuned and I will post all this weekend...Thank You!! Come Again!!

My Friend.....RIP :(

Hi Everyone! I don't have a picture for you today but I will tomorrow. I wanted to change my blog background and I came across this one and I will tell you it means so much to me because I had a good friend die on July 12Th from cancer. She was the nicest lady you could ever meet, I know people will say that when someone dies but quite honestly she was a genuine nice lady. Her name was Sally Carpenter and she was only 53, she taught kindergarten for many years and she was a great teacher. She was a teacher to both of my children and a friend to my mom and me. We scrapbooked and quilted together for many years. She was a trooper till the end and she will be forever missed....Chiyanne (my daughter) and my mom walked in her name at Relay For Life and I'm so proud of both of them! Chiy walked 10 miles and my mom walked 2 miles..Next year I will walk too....
I will leave this blog background up all week in honor of Sally...so please give your loved ones hugs and kisses and tell them how much you love them...So good night everyone..till tomorrow..Thank you

The picture: Sally is on the right and my mom is in the middle...

Playin With A Snowman....

Hi Everyone!!! I hope everyone's weekend is going good...Thank you for all the awesome comments you gave me about my pirate/bookmark card.. I sure do appreciate it!
Today's card features an image from MFT, someone gave me this image and I'm not sure who (sorry) but isn't it cute. It's also a sketch challenge from A Spoon Full Of Sugar. I can't get the sketch transferred to my site darn it but I'm still trying to research how to do it....All the DP is from Basic Grey (Wassail). I used CTMH brads and snowflakes. The brads I dipped in glitter. The snowflake is from my "stash" of punches. The actual image I put stickles on parts of her scarf and the little hill she's standing on but the snowman is just plain glitter.... Well that's it for today :)..Have a great day everyone!!
Thank You!! Come Again!!
