Miss Lola Rose....

I saw this design in my travels through the web and fell in love with it. I cased the card! This was very easy, and all I did was add a "diamond" to her finger! I printed out the image, you could stamp of course! on DP and lined it up in my cutter and cut diagonal strips and lined them up to my image on white cs. So simple! I really like the way it turned out! Something way off the wall for me! This is Lola Rose from Pink Petticoat. Thanks for looking!!! hugz

My First Bride!

This is Lola Rose from Pink Petticoat. This is the first Bride I have done and I think she turned out great! So simple, but classy. I used my new CB folder Birds and Swirls.
Happy Wednesday!! hugz

To the Moon and Back

I had to try an embossed card. It looks much better sitting here than it does on my scan! I used one of the new Cuttlebug Embossing folders, Swiss Dots. I just love that folder! I scored the card and just added ribbon and a sentiment to it. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of embossing that was left over after I sized the card. I've never done that before, but the printing was small enough that it actually worked quit well. I ordered a new Scorpal today! I am so excited to get it. I've heard nothing but great things about it. Until next time....hugz

Yes a Tractor!!

My dad collected old worn out Farmall tractors and restored them! I bought this stamp a long time ago! I bet its close to 10 years when I think about it. We had a challenge at StampCrazyColorBox today and we were to use a stamp we haven't used for years, if ever. I picked this one. I have a hard time making masculine cards, besides this stamp is huge! Takes up the entire card, as you can see! But it was fun to dig out an old stamp and use. We have some great challenges!!
Thanks for stopping by!! hugz

Ahoy Matey...

Isn't this just to cute! Stampin UP-Ahoy Matey! I bought this for my grandson, if you could see the poor stamps, you would know that! LOL He made me so many cards using this stamp! They hang on the Fridge! I bought favor boxes at the $$ store. I didn't quit know what I wanted to do with them. Then I thought it would be perfect to put stickers in there and give it to my grandson for his reward program! I think it turned out and I think he'll really like it! This shows the front and back! Thanks for stopping by! hugz

Da Kitchen!

Oh Gosh! This stamp is oooold!! 1996 and I've never used it before! LOL Probably won't for another 12 years! I am trying to do one card of stamps I've never used. Not an easy job! The stamp is by Art Impressions. DP, what I had in my bin. I colored this with a little of everyting. I used my Tombow markers, blending pen, colored pencils and my silver glitter pen. I added brads in the corners, I used Tim Holtz's new ruler, what a ruler! I love it! Brad and then I wrapped wire around it. It was fun to make, but can't say its on the top of my list for another one!
Thanks for stopping by!! hugz

Under Construction!

I'm redoing my blog. Please be patient with me. I had to recreate a new one due to the other wouldn't let me change my header. I was in "error" somewhere. So I am going to have a new look! I have a few things to add yet, hopefully will be up in full in a couple of days! hugz

Thank You!!!

I would like to THANK everyone that visits my blog and leaves me such nice comments! You are all my inspiration!! I have fun making cards and hopefully just get a little better with each one I make. As of March 3, I will be returning to work! I work a 2nd shift, 9 hour days, 6 days a week! So I'm guessing that I will not be doing much stamping! Such is life! But my "well" is running dry! So Thank you to everyone!! All your comments are greatly appreciated!! hugz

Thinking of You...

I made this card for a friend on another group. I used SU stamp set Merci. Its in the Sale-a-Bration. For ordering so much, you get a free set. I think it turned out great. Its very simple.
And with the pink, very dainty! hugz

New Stamp Set

The mailman was so good to me yesterday!! My SU ordered came and this is SassySuzie! I liked her because she reminded me of me! I used left over CS on the background and colored her with my Tombow markers. I scribbled on a plastic blister pack and then used my blending pen to color her. It worked so well for me. I just am not a good color-er! I have to practice more!
Used my rectangle nestability scallopes and framed her. I think this turned out cute!
Thanks for looking! Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!! hugz

Look at the RAK I Recieved!!!

Debby THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Isn't this just too cute?!!! It is so awesome and such a wonderful surprise!! I also recieved some stamped images that I had on my list! I love this card! She glitters! Her top is red glitter, so cool! The way she has it to close is just great! I have never thought of that! Also I need to get that punch! Red flowers with clear centers!! I love it!! This made my day! So nice of friends to think of you!!
Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday! I know I am!! hugz!

Fun Card!

I cased this card a while back, and I'm so sorry to say, I can't remember from where. I just did a rough draft on some scratch paper. If this is your design, Please leave me a message so I can give you credit for a great sketch! I wish I would of used brighter colors. But I am still happy with the way it turned out. I used SU, Time Well Spent. I colored them in with my gel pens, cut them out and pasted to card stock that I have in my "bits and pieces" drawer. This is the first time I have made a card this size. Its fun and completely different than what I'm use to. Think I will try more design on this size! I used Krenick blending filament on the bottom to tie the hello tag on with. Thanks for looking! Hope everyone had a great Monday! hugz

Blue&Gray Color Challenge

Over at StampCrazyColorBox Yahoo group. This is my take on the card! I used my CTMH "Make it Count" stamp set. First time I've ever used it. I was happy the way the card came out. The background swirls are a StudioG stamp. I had some DP with numbers on it. I bought this stamp set to do some scrapbooking with it. My dad was a "ClockSmith" after he retired from his job. He fixed old antique clocks. Except for mine! He told me I should learn. LOL, I wouldn't have the patience to sit there with tiny little springs and levers! So this is the first time I've stamped with it, so Heres to my Dad's memory, I love you Dad!
Hope everyone is having a great Monday!! hugz
