RCC #76 – Winter!


Hey everyone!  It is time for this month’s Ribbon Carousel Challenge and our theme is winter.  I am not a fan of  here, so much snow has fallen in the last 3 weeks and we are expecting 10-20 more centimeters today and tonight, but winter cards are fun and I love snowy stamps!  Don’t forget to check out all the other amazing cards from the team!

Farm Fresh Friday ~ Something New

Hey everyone!  Time for our first Farm Fresh Friday of 2013 over at The Greeting Farm!  Our challenge this week is to use new stuff on your cards and creations!  Hop on over and meet our new batch of Showcase Farmers and check out all of their amazing cards!

Almost everything on my card is new, except the twine!  I hadn’t inked up Anya Styles yet so even she counts as new for this card.  I am finally feeling the itch to get inky again, so hopefully it won’t be long before I have another card to share.

A Few Favorites from 2012

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families and friends, I know we did.  Even with all the running around and holiday stress it was good and everyone had fun.

I was looking back over all my cards from this past year and picked out a few of my faves, they are in no particular order (I am not that organized this year!) but they are all cards that I loved making, with stamps from my favorite companies, and still love looking at.  I hope you enjoy them too!

If you have any questions about the cards, just let me know and I will let you know what was used.

I have to work today, 12 -8 and then plan on having a quiet New Years with Lee and the boy’s.  As you know I haven’t stamped much in the last couple of  months (I will explain all of that soon), maybe I will get up the energy to do a little bit this evening.

Thank you for all the kind comments and support over the last year, I really do appreciate it and love all of the amazing people who I have met through this fun hobby.  I hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Year’s.  Here’s to 2013!!!

DSC #100 ~ Think Pink!

Wow!!! I can not believe that we are on challenge 100 over at the Drunken Stampers!  Time sure does fly when you are having fun!  This week’s challenge is “think pink” for Breast Cancer awareness month.

You all know that this is a very near to my heart topic, having fought and won my own battle 3 years ago (has it really been that long?!? ) with this nasty disease.  I kept today’s card very CAS, not normally me, but I wanted the card to speak for its self without a lot of other busy stuff and let the pink shine.

Paper: Bazzill Card Shoppe – Cotton Candy, Candy Hearts  Stamp: MFT – Think Pink  Ink: A Muse  Accessories: Pink V Striped Twill Ribbon, Ivory Jute, Button, Rhinestones.

I am making an early Thanksgiving dinner tonight, then plan on relaxing for the rest of the weekend!  I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


Hey everyone!  Did you all have a good weekend?  Ours was busy with Liam’s birthday party, 12 year old boys have WAY too much energy! LOL

Paper: Echo Park  Stamps: The Greeting Farm (Sitting Cute)  Ink: A Muse, Copic markers  Accessories: Baker’s Twine, Cuttlebug, MFT Die-namic scallop border, Pearl, Rhinestones, Prima flower.
