My daughters 26th birthday is coming up in January. So I thought I would get ahead just a bit and work on a card for her. A while back I bought a stamp by Suzy Toronto. I absolutely LOVE her stamps! This stamp is called, My Daughter my Friend. The sentiment is also by Suzy Toronto. I colored the image with my Prisma's. All the cs is from my stash. I wanted a little distressed look to the card, besides the gray I added to my hair!! LOL I use to do a lot of cross stich and have totes and totes filled with specialty floss. I dug some of it out and created my own "ribbon". It was a lot of work! But I was happy the way it turned out. The card is huge, but my daughter is so worth it! She loves handmade cards!
Thank you for stopping by, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

I made this card over the last two days! With the Holidays upon us, I can only get bits and pieces of anything done! I ordered a new punch from Loreen at Wish on a Scrap. Its a corner punch with a guard that can be taken off, by EKSuccess. I punched the circle with the corner punch and laid that on top of a cirlce. I used my scalloped square nesties for the back of the cirlce. I had these great chipboard designs that I picked up at the $ store, used the clock in the middle and the Memory below. I used my SU close to cocoa for the edge. Ribbon came from....JoAnn's.
I love the way the card turned out, it was hard not to do any stamping on it.
Thanks for looking.
May you all have a wonderful and safe Christmas.

Another Tilda, this time with a bright green coat. I colored her with copics. The DP is by TAC, Ribbon is from my stash and flowers are Prima's. I added stickles to her coat and hood and to the tips of the flowers. She was fun card to put together. I wish the stickles showed up better, they really look nice in RL!

Such a great stamp by TAC called Just Dream. Not much I can say about this card, everything came from my bits and pieces stash. I used Prisma's to color the angel and my glitter pen to add sparkle to her wings. I love her wings! They remind me of John Travolta's wings in "Michael". He had the greatest wings!

Going for EASY! This Santa I colored last week. I was messing around with my resist ink pad, tried it on photo paper, did not work. Had a little left over so thought I would try stamping on it with my Memento Ink. Worked great. Colored him with my Tombow markers and the photo paper was wonderful to color on I used my snowflake CB folder, silver photo corners by Fiskars, and the ribbon is from Mikes.
Thanks for stopping by.

I colored both of these over a month ago and had no idea what I wanted to do with either of them. When I colored them I had no idea that they would end up together! Staylish Tilda is from Wish on a Scrap. The house is from Whipper Snapper and is a Halloween stamp! I colored it to make it look like Chrismtas and it worked! I cut the Merry Christmas from a Sizzix die. The ricrak is from JoAnn Fabric. The paper I used, which you can hardly see, and its wonderful!! is by Pebbles Inc. I colored my images with my Prisma's and googone!
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Our challenge at Scor-PalPals was to do one of the tutorials off the new
Christmas 2008 Magazine from the Scor-Pal website.
This was a little putzy but the end result is awesome! I take horrible pics so it looks so much better IRL! The DP is Figgy Pudding by BasicGrey. Gorgeous paper!
The glitter is jelly glitter by Gelatin Stamps. Great to work with! I just painted glue on the tips of my flowers and sprinkled glitter, swooshed it around and dumped it on paper to add it back in my jar. Ribbon is CTMH and I used my nesties on the window. This would be a great gift for the person that has everything!

I made this for my grandson to give to his teacher for Christmas. It can be filled with candy? tylenol? LOL I leave that to my daughter. It was fun to make and pretty easy using my Scor-Pal and Scor-Mat. I used all cs from my stash bins. Flowers are Prima's. I put the big eyelets in and this is the first time I wish i would of bought the Big Bite! LOL I had to set the one row of eyelets by hand. I followed the tutorial from Inking Addict. She always has such wonderful tutorials. Check out her blog!

This stamp is soooo old! About 5+ years ago, hubby and I went on a Rummage sale run over by the Mississippi. Miles and miles of sales! I had to much fun! One place we stopped at had stamps, used, poorly taken care of and i bought the whole lot. Mostly Chrismtas stamps. Came home, cleaned them all up and put them away! So yesterday I dug them out. This stamp is by Penny Black and of course being Santa, I love it! Colored him with copics and the verse is one I've had in my stash, no idea who it is by, but all the same, fits the Santa image perfect. I'm in a simple mode, maybe because I am so far behind in my Christmas cards and we are down to the wire now. Thanks for looking!

Another simple card! I'm beginning to like the simpe! It has to do with the whites, reds and greens! Nothing prettier than Christmas colors. I colored this image the other day with the few copics I have. This image was another one of those gifts and have no idea from who, or the name of the stamp, but THANK YOU! Love these Images! I used my Fiskar border punch around the image. I added my red ribbon just because it needed "something". LOL not really, but I feel incomplete if I don't add something!

I colored these cuties up a couple of days ago and just didn't know what I wanted to do with them. I wanted it simple, but eye catching and sometimes the simple things are the hardest. The image is by Inkadinkadoo. I used basic white CS and ribbon was in my stash, another one that came from Mikes. The bottom border is punched out using the new Fiskars snowflake border punch. The "rope" is a blending filament from Krenick. This was such a fun card to do, but way to much measuring!

The more I color this Tilda and Edwin, the more I like it. I just think they are so cute. I colored this last night watching a Christmas movie. In fact, I was so involved in Christmas movies I colored a few images. The darling Christmas tree was an image sent to me, for the life of me I can't remember who that generous person was nor who makes the stamp, but I LOVE IT! How fun to color that tree. I really thought it was going to take me forever, but went fairly quickly. Everything on this card was pulled out of my bits and pieces tote, little of this, and a little of that in there.

I made this for the Magnolia-icious DT's layout challenge. I thought I would do this in pink! I've done the usual Christmas colors and the blue and silver, so tried the pink with a hint of green. My DS is by BoBunny, ribbon of course the stash of all ribbon stash's! I used my CB snowflake folder on the round background, colored the snowflakes with my SU ink pad. I cut the tree out of my Sizzix die cut. I had these great snowflakes in white, and touched them up with some pink ink. Tilda is colored with my Prisma's. I love the colors! Tilda looks good in pink!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope everyone is having a great week!
