I did a challenge

The challenge this week on the Sarah Kay blog is purple and green.

Ok I didn't do it for the challenge this week , because I already had it done, but I said what the heck, the colors are right
so if it counts, here is my first challenge.

The background pp is from DCWV paper pack called The Far East Stack. Sorry I've had it so long I forget where i bought it.

I cut out a Large circle from doublesided cs I got at Micheals last summer, cut it in half, then hand stitched the reverse sides
down with this awesome multicolored plastic thread My friend Dianne at bought me a while ago.
and added Taylor's tiny twinkles

I then took some silk flowers I had and dyed them green and purple, and added a die chip dot.
Image was water colored then mounted to my punched out ovals.
Oh yes, the larger oval was done with the swiss dots cuttlebug folder

Have a wonderful Sunday all

Sarah Kay

Here's another sarah Kay card. I did this one awhile ago too, actually, Idid quite a few of them.
I just love her stamps and now that I own several of them I had to ink them up.

Again no sentiment till I know who it's going to.
I did a design on the card base but didn't like it, so I covered it up with the white cs which I ran through
my crimper. On that I stamped with Versa mark, then rubbed chalks in yellow, blue and dark pink,
added the lace from an old slip i had torn apart, stamped the butterflies and added stickles to them/The image is
done with water color pencils.

Simple Christmas card

It's going to be here sooner then we think.
Christmas is just around the corner, if time passes as quickly as it did this summer (which will be too soon for me).
So I did this easy peasy card, with the new cuttlebug folder, added lots of stickles to the falling snow,
and rooftops. The sentiment was stamped in Versa mark, then black StazOn, added clear embossing powder then set with heatgun.

oh, and a soft gold dusting was added to the stickles on the rooftops to add that little touch of shimmer.
I tried to get a good picture, hope you can see it.

Hope you all had a fantastic day

Last Xmas

I did this card, but I really didn't like it so never posted it.
But I'm getting a bit braver and I'm thinking what the hay, I did it , so post it.
Don't get me wrong, I still really hate it but how else does one learn or get critiqued if one doesn't show it.
So critique away, but be kind, cause i'm sensitive. (just kidding)
It was my first and last attempt at embossing metal and I even tried a bit of ink rubbing on it.

Have a sunny Thursday

I got a bit carried away

when I saw Mel's idea for her short ribbons, I got it in my head to do the same thing.
But I think I should not have done it late at night and while I was tired.
I'm thinking I might have gotten a little carried away.
Although I think it looks pretty kewl, I'm think'in it's not really very good if I actually need to use any of that ribbon.
I was so tired that I even gave it a little. Can you see it? LOL
Oh well,I tried.
Anyhoo, I did this card while I was computerless, ????
I sure hope your moniters are showing how deep the colors are, because I'm
haveing a dickens of a time trying to get my resolution right on this thing. It's looking
really washed out on here, when in fact IRL it is rather dark.
And looking at it now I think I'll need to put a larger gem on the huge flower, It's looking a little lost there.
But don't ya just love that Sarah Kay stamp? All of her stamps are so darn cute.

Well that's it for today folks. Hope you have a super wonderful day.

Girls of the world

by Allison at
Allison generously shared these cute girls and boys (not shown here) in a download file.

I did these for my granddaughter a while back, and just gave them to her last weekend.
she loves stickers, I guess you could say she is a sticker addict, so I made them stickers for her.
I wish I had taken off the front cello paper so you could see how shimmery and bright they all are,

I used my Twinkling H2o's and they look so rich and yummy thanks to Maria's great tutorial.
These are just a few of them.
I think I did all of them twice in the boys and girls of the world sets, one complete set
I coloured in and left the second set plain, I just ran them through my Xron 250 so she could colour them herself.

Thanks for stopping by

second post today and a 5 min card?

yup I did this in 5 mjns. with the first stamp set at my finger tip and leftover scraps on my desk.
Now I know it's all smudged, but I did it up, put it in the envelope still wet, then forgot i didn't sign it, BUT it was a VERY rush job after all and then out the door.
Danny was talking to a friend who mentioned that he was ready to pull all his hair out because
they were haveing a birthday pool party for their 6 yr old daughter, and only one little girl showed up.
Needless to say she was a shattered little girl especially since 10 parents RSVPed their kids would be there.

Danny said he would see if he could get his granddaughter, and if so that we would bring her there. As luck would have it, it had to be 100degrees out there yesterday. No jokeing
mission 1 - get granddaughter - accomplished with a bonus of another friends 14 yr. old who volunteered to come and entertain them.
mission 2 - a card (hence this 5 min. mess)

As he was going out the door he turned and gave me this look that stopped me in my tracks, and calmly asks."well are you going to take a picture so we can get going?"
mission 3 - picture hastily taken (sorry for the bad pic)

And last but not least
mission 4 - two more little ones finally showed up, and Brandy the 14 yr. old kept them so busy that I don't think the birthday girl cared that there were only the 4 of them, they all had a blast.

And that was my Sat., how was yours? Hope it was fab.

Friends New and Old

Hello everyone. I just wanted to thank you all for all the nice comments
you all have left here and e-mails wondering if I was still alive.

This card is for you all

I was haveing quite a few computer problems that would take forever to explain, especially since I'm still not totally sure just what the
problems were or why they were happening. (NOT AT ALL COMPUTER SAVVY)

But after loseing more and more functions Danny finally got tired of me beating up the stupid thing and surprised me with a lap top. There is a really long story here , but I will spare you the details . lol Lets just say he is worse then me on computers, and that's pretty bad.

I have a lot of blurffing to get done, awards to acknowledge, unfinished projects to..... well finish, and get caught up on my blogging.
A lot for a person who moves as slow as a snail, but doable.

So thanks again everyone
Have a wonderful day
