Precious Moments Showers

Happy Saturday Everyone,

We survived the massive winds yesterday. I was wondering if we were going to the land of OZ and have the wicked witch under our house when we landed. We were very lucky. There were trees and downed poles and wires all over the county. A very large billboard fell on top of a bowling ally. The billboard was advertising the Powerball Lottery. I guess mother nature was really mad she didn't win and blew it over. All kidding aside thankfully no one was injured.

Here is a card that I have done for Suzanne Dean's CMC challenge.

I used a stamp that I don't think had ever seen ink until this. It is a Precious Moments stamp which they don't even produce the rubber stamps anymore as far as I know.

I have colored her using Copic markers. She is stamped with Memento ink on Cryogen white paper. The background paper is by Brenda Walton.

I added some of my hot glue gun pearls. I also added stickles to the umbrella hearts and glossy accents to the the falling hearts.

Have a great weekend.

Hot Glue Gun Pearls

Hi Everyone and Happy Wednesday,

Ok, I did it. This is my first tutorial video. Be gentle :-). I have written tutorials before but never recorded one. I know there are some bugs in it. I was working with an editing program that I just downloaded. I don't think it's too bad for a first try. I hope you like it and will learn something new from it.

Puppy Love

Happy Tuesday Everyone,

Well we got hit with another overnight snow storm. It was about 5 inches. I am really sick of snow. I think the current ground hog should retire and they replace him because what happen to spring being just around the corner.

Here is a spring looking card. This is Sarah Kay image. I kept it simple.

A couple of swirls cut with my Slice and some pearls .

Here's to hoping spring is just a few days away..... wishful thinking.

Thanks for stopping by.

Little Chickies

Happy Saturday All,

I have made this card to participate in the Mo's Digital Pencil challenge. This little guy is a digital image by Mo. I have colored him with Copic markers. The back ground is sponged with versa color ink using a Spellbinders Nestie die.

I followed the sketched that was presented at the challenge web site. I used a Fiskars border punch for the border along the image. I made me think a bit of chicken wire.

This little guy was fun to color.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

Have a good weekend.

Spring where are you?

Here are a couple of cards that I have done and entered into the CMC Copic Challenge this week.

Both are colored with copic.
Just trying to push spring along.

This was done with a old stamp. I would say a good 14 years old maybe more.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day,

Just a quick card to say may your Valentine's Day be filled with a little extra love today.

As you can see I added a nose and mouth to the magnolia image. My husband always says "were is the kids mouth". I found a blog that gave really good instructions on different ways to add expression.

In case you want to check it out here is the link

You could use this on any image to add the nose and mouth.

Enjoy your day.

I wish we had flowers

Happy Sunday Everyone,

I just love Sarah Kay images. I wish is was warm enough to have flowers growing. Oh well soon enough and we will be out having to cut the grass and weed.

She is colored with copic's. Background paper is Basic Grey's Indian Summer. The large rose is from A.C Moore and the small ones are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Bisque colored liquid pearls were used as well as some ribbon and lace.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look.

Here is a Slide show of a Precious Moments calendar that I made for a very good friend. She loves Precious Moments. All images were colored with Copic markers.


Hi Everyone,

I redid my blog background. I hope you like it. I thought it needed to be spruced up somewhat.

Here is a Valentine card I did using an image by Elisabeth Bell. What ever company she designs for they are always so pretty. I colored her using my copics. The background paper is from Bo Bunny's Crazy Love collection. I cut the image using nestibilities as well as the scallops.

I used my Making Memories Slice Die Cut Machine to cut the word "love" out three time to make it thicker. A pink seam binding for the ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look.
