Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to All!

Well Hello There,

Yes I have been MIA for a while. I hope to be back to blogging and video making in the New Year. 

So stay tuned. Well I sent all my Christmas cards out before I thought to take a picture of some .
While I was making my Christmas cards I ended up coming up with an idea for a New Years card.

A dear friend gave me the Simon Says Stamp star die cut last year and I love it. I have cut it with Neenah solar white card stock. I then layered that on to some metallic gold card stock that I layered on the black card base. I die cut the little banners out of the the same card stocks using dies I received as a prize from Love's Rubber Stamps. The Happy New Year stamp is one from Michaels $1 bins from a number of years ago. I stamped in the delicata gold ink.




The champagne glasses are a silhouette cut file. The "Champagne" in them is created using Darcie's sparkle tape. It is so pretty.

The inside was done making a cut file into a print file using Silhouette file again but I added the 2015 to the glasses this time. The stars have wink of Stella on them. 


Thank you for stopping by today and having a look. And please check back in the New Year.

To all Have a Very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Wonderful New Year.

Happy Birthday

Happy Friday Everyone,

I wanted to follow along with Sassy Cheryl's Sketch this week so I made a cute birthday card for anyone who loves Micky and Minnie mouse. 


This is the We're All Ears Set from Sassy Cheryl. Here is the link if you would like to pick this cutie up. 

This was a sketch over at the challenge blog and I though it would be fun to use up some of my little ears embellishments that I have had now for a while. 

She is colored with copic markers and I used linen paper. I love the look of copics on the linen paper. The texture just does something. A little wink of stella was used on the skirt ruffle and the hair bow. 

Thanks for stopping buy and have a great weekend.

Just having a nice day.

Hi there Everyone,

Hope all is good with you. Well it was a long holiday weekend here. We had a great weekend. Well it was great to get lots of things done around the outside of the house. We finally finished the deck. Woo Hoo. Got some other projects out of the way as well. But we still found time for a nice steak and baked potato on the grill. YUM. 

Ok on to my card. Of course it is another cutie from Sassy Cheryl. This is Day Dream Believin. She is available HERE . The challenge was to use purple and 2 die cuts. I have used some MFT dies for the banners shapes. The verse is die cut as well. I love these colors such happy colors.

CAS Cutie

Hello there,

Can you believe it, two weeks in a row. Yup I have another card. This is a colorful CAS card I have done for Sassy Cheryl's challenge this week. I love the fun colors. The adorable image of course is from Sassy Cheryl shop. I love her images. I have colored this cutie with my copics. Not overly happy with the hair but considering I pretty much wiped it off with my colorless blender to try again not too bad. LOL

This is Pigtail Gabby you can get her HERE



Ok, hope to get some more cards done but all the outside work that comes with home ownership ( you know the thing when the house owns you) that we are working on I will try and squeeze some in. Anybody want to come over and help with striping a deck and then painting it? :-)

Have a great week.

A spring flower for you!



Well Hello Everyone,

I know it has been forever since I posted. I decided to do a little cardmaking the other day. I picked up a couple of Sassy Cheryl's images and started. The image is from Avery's Summer Afternoon set available HERE oh and it's on sale too. :-)

I just too this picture with my phone's camera since it was sitting here. LOL

I have colored her with my copics. The little piece of designer paper is from Michael's $1 bin.

I used my cloud stencil from Rosie's Roadshow and my BG 10 copic. I think they came out cute. 

We have lots of ugly clouds here today along with rain and wind and it's cold my poor little flowers that are out need little sweaters on. 

Just thought I would drop in and add a card.

Tis the Season

Hi there everyone,

Wow almost a month since I posted. Goodness. Oh well it's that time of year. Just a quick post today. I finally made one of the pretty lighted glass blocks I have been seeing everywhere. 

I just took a quick picture with my phone so it's not the greatest picture and you can see my messy desk too. LOL

I cut the words that I purchased from the Silhouette store from vinyl and added them to the block and put some jingle bells inside add a light and boom done. It came out really cute. 


Thanks for stopping by today.

Have a great day.

Gift Card Cutie

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are having a great day today. I sure am. I am in my studio having a blast taking the Online Card Classes Holiday Card Workshop 2013. I am working on Day 1 because I was not able to work on anything Monday and Tuesday. But I made this cute adorable gift card holder.



The stamp is one that is part of a set by Darcies that I purchased at convention a number of years ago. Long before you could find a lot of Darcie's product in store and online stores. It is a large set and I had never used it before except to catalog it. 


So I broke it out and went with it. This my interpretation of Kristina's card. Change it up a little but not much. I like some have a few washi tapes and never use them. I think this is the second time I have ever used any on a card. I like the way it dressed it up. 



This little guy is colored with my copics and cut out. The little glitter snowflakes are stickers from the Dollar Tree and worked perfect. 
The sentiment is from the same stamp set and embossed with white embossing powder.
Oh and I finally got a hold of a Wink of Stella Clear glitter brush pen and have used it on the heart. It's very hard to see in the photo but gives a pretty shine.


Now I have a ton and I do mean a ton of embossing folders and rarely use them. I broke out the peppermint stripe one by cuttlebug and used it on the front of the card that is done with Kraft cardstock. 


Now this inside. It has a vellum pocket for the gift card. Oh and another one of those glitter snowflakes and yes more washi tape. I am on a roll. LOL

I hope you have enjoy the card today and now I am back to some more of the classes. 
Thanks for stopping by.

Joyous Holiday



Hi there,

Happy November. Boy is it moving fast already. I am glad I got a jump on making Christmas cards this year.  Here is one I channelled my former DT team mate Dawn. She always made the most beautiful CAS cards. I am using a Sassy Cheryl image. Her snow people are so adorable. 



This cutie is colored with my copics. I have used white linen card stock. I love the texture it gives. The image is so cute I didn't want to clutter it with too much so I just added the sentiment. Oh but I couldn't let it go completely I added just a touch of stickles around the star. A little hard to see but it's there. 



I have made a few of these to send out this year.  

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a great rest of the weekend.

Trick or Treat

Hi Everyone,

I have a quick picture of a card I did using another cute Sassy Cheryl image ( yes I love her images). Isn't she a cutie? Nothing ugly about her.

She is all ready to head out for some treats. She is a good girl no tricks up her sleeves.
Sorry the lighting is a little bad it is later in the afternoon so no bright sun. 


I have colored her with my copics. Her dress has some pretty stickles on it. The ribbon is glittery. The Trick or Treat stamp is a studio G stamps


I wanted the spider web paper to stand out and the plain orange cardstock was not cutting it. I added some heat and stick powder and used my AIG pumpkin glitter to make it look like glitter paper which I didn't have in orange.

I hope you like the card I have for you today.
Thanks for stopping by.

Harvest Time


Hello Everyone,

Happy Wednesday! Can you believe that October is half over. Wow, the end of the year will be here before you know it. I just noticed on the calendar that Thanksgiving is pretty late this year. I have seen a black Friday already go up on BFads. Good grief guess better get moving on that Christmas shopping. 

Ok, today my card is not Christmas but just screaming fall. 




This is a Sassy Cheryl image called Max and his prize pumpkin. You can get it here.
I have colored him with my copics. I wanted something a little different for his hat so after I colored the hat I used my colorless blender to make the polkadots.


The background paper is by DCWV that I purchased from Joann's called The Pumpkin Patch.  This paper pad really has some pretty papers in it. 


The little leaves are cut out using a new die I picked up a few weeks ago from Impression Obsession. It was a smaller die than I thought but I like that it is smaller and worked well on this card. 



The verse is one that I made into a print and cut file using my silhouette cameo.

Thanks for stopping by to have a look today and hope you have a great rest of the week.

Skate for the Cause


Hi everyone,

Hope your week has started off to be a good one. Today I have a card that I made with one of Sassy Cheryl's recent additions to her shop. Isn't she a cutie? I thought I would make it a little different rather than a winter or Christmas card. It's October and that it breast cancer awareness month so I went in that direction. I created the verse/tag with my cameo making a print file out of the ice skates cut file. This just give you double use of your cut files. 



Now I support the cause when ever I can I am not sure I would do so well with this well unless skating can be done on your butt because that would be more than likely where I would end up. LOL But I would give it a try. ( I think) might have to think about it, the older you get the bones don't heal well if broken. Hummm. Ok I would donate.:-)


I have colored her with my copics. The paper is some I have had in my stash it has a design with glitter all over it. The soft pink ribbon I thought went well with it. 


I few pink pearls and an awareness ribbon charm. Kept it a little simple. 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will consider helping in the fight.

I Love Fall

Hi there,

I have been having fun for the past couple of days making cards. I thought I would share one that I think came out really cute. 


The image is by Sassy Cheryl. I thought she was just adorable hugging her pumpkin she picked. She is called Maddie and her prize pumpkin and is available here. I have colored her with my copics. She has also been cut out using my cameo.
The I love Fall was also cut using my cameo. 


The ribbons are some scraps of seam binding that I colored using distress stains. I was trying out the new colors and I just thought they were so pretty together and screamed FALL that I had to try and use the scraps somewhere they just fit this card. 
The little leaves are brads and the leaf in the middle of the ribbon is a wood piece by recollections. 


The background paper is by DCWV that I purchased from Joann's called The Pumpkin Patch. How perfect is that for this image. 

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great rest of the weekend.

Some more organizing

Hi Everyone,

Here are a few more organizing ideas and a video tour of my studio that I have put to use .



These are jewerly/sock organizer I purchased from Amazon.com
They have pockets on both the front and back. I am using them to store my stickles and liquid pearls.


I have cut tags much like the ones I used to catalog my embossing folder but smaller to put a sample of my stickles and liquid pearls on. This way I just grab the ring to see what color would look best. 


This is the liquid pearls side. I also have these same organizers to organize a lot of much embellishment like my pearls and such. Works great. 


These are over the door shoe organizers. I am using them to organizer a lot of different small things as well as my ribbons. I have my ribbon seperated by color in zip bags and have two colors in each slot. 
These had metal hangers but just didn't like they way they mark the door up so I put the 3M hooks up and used ribbon to hang mine and it works perfect. 


This one holds my brad, eyelets etc. I purchased days of the week pill boxes from the Dollar Tree and have put all my brads in these. Work just perfect. Mine were a mess before. 

This is a little closer picture that includes my charms and some laser wood cuts.

Here is an updated video tour I have done of my room.

Unmounting lots of Stamps Post


Just some more idea of the new organizing I have done over the summer. It really is working out very well for me. Hope you enjoyed. Thanks for stopping by.

Flashback 50's

Hi Everyone,

Hope your week is going well. Been very busy this last week. I have a really fun card for you today. A flashback to the 50's.



This is an digi image by Simply Betty. Isn't she adorable. I thought the pink and gray would be perfect for the "50's" look. Is that poodle not too cute. I added some puff paint on him.



I have colored her with my Copics. I added some black and pink glitter pearls around the cards along with some pretty pink ribbon and a pink flourish. The papers are some that I had in my stash. With most of this card I think it is perfect for Breast Cancer Awareness this month. 
Don't forget to schedule those Mammograms. Mine is all set up. 


I had fun making this card. I wan't around in the 50's but I do remember in the later 70's that a big fad was the 50's style because of Happy Day's. We had 50's days in Jr High that everyone dress up like this. 


Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed my card today.
