2nd CD case all done

This time I lined all four sides with Vellum . Hard to get a good pic with the reflection.
But LOOK at the last pic, I put a votive candle in it. Huummm...... I did do this for my stamp sets right?
Anyway, I put Taylor's Tiny Twinkles on all the stars, and adhered her Black Rain Dots down all four corners. I was going to add a tag to the top and that's why I have that stretch cord on there right now, but I think I will add a ribbon to the top

Really lovin it as a candle holder though.

Well thanks for dropping by today.

Nolans Monster

Head on over to and see this cute little monster that Nolan made. He is 10 yrs old and loves to draw so he had his mom post this one to share with everyone.
Here is my monster for Nolan. Hope he likes it.
I did him with Mel's gesso. First I mixed gesso with green , grey, and black acrylic paint, I rolled it on the cs and waited a bit for it to almost dry, then I took an old paint brush and stippled it to give it some monster skin. lol
After that dried I embossed his dots with green embossing powder and his horns with red powder so he has monster skin, little devil's horns and googley eyes too.
Oh, and I add rain dots to the dp and the leaf of the flower.

Enjoy your Sunday

Know that I care

I made this card for my adopted Little Sister Luci and her family.
They just lost their beloved dog Shadow recently, and I wanted her know Iwas there for them if not in person I was there in spirit.

Sorry about the quality of the pic, I took it on a very rainy and gloomy day and it did'nt take very well.
The quote on the front says
Know That I care.

I also did this one useing the same dp.
As with the first card I stamped the flowers (on the first one), and the leafs on this one with my Versamark, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder on the main card, added the layered c/s , ribbon and embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Photo CD Case

I finally finished something here. What a good feeling.
The uber talented and very giveing Allison @ featured this on her blog ( which is an amazeing place to visit) a while ago, and I just had to give it a try.
It was created by Julie Griffith @ and aside from there being written directions there is a video tutorial as well.
In this one I am useing it to hold my stamp sets from It stores 13 CD cases, so I have to do up another one.
I stamped a Faeriesong stamp on the inside of one CD with StaysOn black ink, and colored it with some gel pens and PerlEx. I lined the inside of each Cd with DP and added that same paper on the outside corners of the case.
Sorry for the color, it's really hard to get one without a reflection on the plastic.
Well I'm off to do another case and hopefully get to all the other things I have started and left to try something else. I do get sidetracked very easily.
Have a great dayPosted by Picasa

Here are a few Christmas cards I've done to get a head start on the season.

Too early you say, well maybe, but I put things off so much that I am always so behind. But not this year, oh no, I'm going full speed ahead and........
well you get the picture.

This first one is a shaker card (YEA ME), each star is a seperate shaker and as you can see I did not measure each one very well, but uuuummmm, it smells so yummy because I used Christmas cake decoration as the shaker fill.

On this one I used reverse stamping, or maybe it's mirror image stamping to get the stocking going the other way, a few sequines to hang them on, DP and all done.
Have a great day Posted by Picasa

These cards

Inspired Envelopes

These envelopes were inspired by Jennifer card at
She did her card with a pull out tab that I thought was so cute that I wanted to case it.
Mine is not a stamp as hers is, but a punch I discovered I had.
I thought the ideas was great for my sister who meets with a few of her friends every month for a girls night out. They usually go to the same restaurant, which has fab food and an excellent waitress (they always try to go when she is serveing) that is crazy and fits right in with them.
They went last Friday, and I guess my cards were a hit.

Well thanks for stopping by

Happy Sunday
