Happy Birthday!

Happy Thursday!  This week has been going by so quickly and very little has gotten done!  I have started the back to school shopping for clothes and shoes, not fun.  Next week I will do the fun part and hit Staples!  I love buying all the pens and pencils and markers.  🙂 

Today’s card was one I made up for the store by my Mom’s place.  I need to re-stock birthday cards, they seem to go the fastest out of all my cards.

Paper: Basic Grey  Stamps: The Greeting Farm Digi, The Cat’s Pajama’s sentiment  Ink: Amuse, Copic markers  Accessories: Fiskars punch, Pearls, Prima flower, Button, Twine.

I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


Happy Birthday!

TGIF!  Whew, so glad it is finally the weekend!  It will be nice to take it easy and not do anything other than go to the lake and soak up some sun!  🙂

I am having a ton of fun playing with my new Sparkle Creations stamps, they are just so cute!  For today’s card I used Cupcake Ruby along with Nook and Pantry, a perfect combination I think.

Paper: Basic Grey  Stamps: Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, The Cat’s Pajamas sentiment  Ink: Amuse, Copic markers  Accessories: Prima flowers, Pearls, Fiskars punch, Liquid Applique, Glitter Ritz glitter.

One of the boys has a friend coming over today and I’m sure Iwill be spending most of it at the beach.  Hopefully I can find a little time to stamp before the day is over.

Have a fab Friday and enjoy your weekend!

Think Spring!

Happy Friday!  Just a quick card for me today, I have been thinking hard about what I am going to do for the first round of the Royal Battle over at the Greeting Farm!  I have had lots of ideas, but I am having a hard time getting them to work the way I want them too.

This is another image that I pulled out of my ‘already coloured but don’t know what to do with it’ stash!  I have a bunch of images that I coloured in the fall, that I did during chemo, that I want to use up.

Life is good!

Happy Thursday!  I have been busy running around again and not getting much of anything done when all I want to do is stamp!  I coloured this image months ago and finally got around to using her.  Hopefully I will get some good quality stamping time in on Saturday when Lisa and Donna (who I finally get to meet!) are here for a play day!  😀

Paper: Bazzill, Basic Grey  Stamps: The Greeting Farm, The Cat’s Pajamas  Ink: Versafine, Copic markers  Accessories: Fine detail ep, Prima flowers, Pretties, Rhinestones, Stickles.

Do I Smell Cake?

Happy Monday!  I wish I could smell cake, I have been craving it for a while now, maybe I will have to make one up this week!  I had a great but busy weekend.  Saturday I had a friend out to visit and we had lots of crafty fun, I was actually productive!  LOL  Sunday I had a ton of  laundry to do and a bunch of getting ready for the week kinda things.  I was able to sneak into my room to play a bit between loads when I thought no one was looking!  😉

Paper: Bazzill, Prima  Stamps: The Cats Pajamas  Ink: AMuse, Copics  Accessories: Nesties, EK punch, Liquid pearls, Ribbon, Stickles, Button, DMC floss.

I have to run into town for a quick visit with the nurse this morning and then I plan on hiding out in my room and playing!  I hope you have a great Monday and thanks for stopping by!

Warm Wishes

Happy Tuesday!  Today’s card is for Sparkle’s weekly Christmas card challenge.  This week she has a fun sketch to use!

Warm Wishes

Here is a close up of the image to see the detail.

Warm Wishes detail

I stamped and embossed the image, and then used the scalloped nestie to cut it out.  I then added some glitter around the edge and fun flock to the cute bear.  I punched out the snowflakes, painted them with Shimmerz and added a rhinestone for a little more bling.  What is a Christmas card without the bling?

Paper:Bazzill, Cosmo Cricket (Oh Joy)  Stamps: The Cat’s Pajamas  Ink:Versafine, CTMH (White)  Accessories: Cuttlebug (Snow dot), Nesties (Scalloped circle), Copic markers, Sakura quickie glue pen, Fun flock, Ek punch (snowflake), Shimmerz, Rhinestones, Glitter Ritz (Warm Highlight), Clear detail ep.

I have a busy day today, so I will keep it short.  I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


A Gift

Happy Thursday!  I have been busy running around trying to finish up a bunch of stuff for work and at the school the last few days, but took some time out to play the other day.  Aileen calls it ‘ creative procrastination’, I love that phrase!


A close up of the image.


I started this not really knowing what it would be, I just wanted to play with glitter and foil!  I ran the red foil cardstock through the Cuttlebug shiny side down.  I then used a glue pen to fill in the snowflakes.  Once the glue was dry I added the glitter.  I decided to run with the red and green and matted in onto green cardstock and added matching green ribbon.  I stamped the TCP image with Versafine and coloured it in with Sharpies and then went over it again with Spica glitter pens for even more bling!  I then used liquid glass on the red bow for a little more dimension and liquid applique on the pom pom before matting and pop dotting it onto the card.

Paper:Bazzill, Red foil  Stamp: The Cat’s Pajamas  Ink: Versafine  Other:Sharpies, Spica pens, Cuttlebug, Satin Ribbon, Liquid glass, Liquid applique, Glitter Ritz, pop dots.

I was asked a little while ago how I photograph silver or metallic paper.  I use this for all my pictures, otherwise I don’t do anything special.  I hope that helps.   Well I’m off  to get some more house work done and maybe play a little bit!  Thanks for stopping by!
