Old memorie are new again

I was cleaning out my spare room so I could pack and throw away things last night and came across an old and ragged card I had recieved from my sister years ago. The date wasn't even ledgeable anymore. As I was about to toss it out, (something that tears at my heartstrings as all the boxes of old cards in here would attest to) I noticed there was a tiny image on the back that was the same as the worn out card front.
This reminded me of a stamp I have and have never used, so needless to say cleaning was the last thing on my mind at this point, and I dug through my stamps and inked it up.

I am happy I did because I actually Like this card. Then I even dressed up the envelope by stamping in bleach, AND IT WORKED. I stamped the image on some paper I had colored with watered down water color paints, then embossed with Rainbow sparkle embossing powder. Matted that on SU glossy white cs. Using my clear ruler I ran beads of my embossing pen to create a border around the image and sprinkled the ep on that.
Yummy glitter. Added the ribbon and adhered it with ribbon glue. All done.

Ok there is as always a punch line here. As I was about to take a photo I noticed the mark on my ribbon, drat, but too late now it was all gluded down.

Supplies: rainbow sparkles embossing powder, bleach, may arts ribbon
Stamp, Artfulinkables

Giggles and I

Giggles and I want to wish all our American friends a very Happy Thanksgiving

Is she too cute or what. I don't even know where I got her and her little mate - yup there is a Mr. giggles too, and there is no name on them as to who makes them, but I do know as soon as I saw them I had to have them. They are so darn ugly they are cute.

I was sitting here and getting bored and tired so I thought I would play a bit. I wanted to try my gesso again with some inks, and a dash of glitter spray on a scrap piece of paper.
What a mess, but oh what fun. I really liked the end result so I thought I would throw card together.

Now this is smaller then a card and bigger then a tag, so I'm not sure what to call it except just a silly tired Tonniece creation. LOL

Dosen't she make you giggles though? Ok I really am getting silly, i guess i'd better pack it in for today.

"B" Day remake

Happy Friday everyone

Well a day later then I promised, but here it is. Debbie's new birthday card.

The inspiration for this card came from Linda at . She is doing a set of 12 cards that are all monochromatic and OH SO STUNNING, but then ALL HER CARDS ARE. Hop on over, you won't be disappointed I promise you.

That great stamp is called "Monique" and can be purchesed at , and the sister stamp is by and purchased from here in London Ontario. There is a phrase that goes down the backside of it that I put on the inside of the card along with a few words from me. Sorry, no picture of inside and it's sealed now. The scallop is my new MS punch, LOVE IT.
I water colored the image with the same blue in three different strengths to make the layered dress pop, then added the bling to every tip of the layers and to the tips of each scallop also.
Can't forget the stickles and a dash of shimmer paint.
The skin tone is so different IRL, don't know why it looks so orangy here. I used a new flesh tone water color pencil here.

Well I hope she likes it.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy you weekend.

"B"Day Card?

I know I have been MIA latley but I have been so swamped with the packing and Reno's that I just want to SCREAM.

For those of you that have been checking in to see if I'm still alive.
I AM, but just barely lol

I started this card a few weeks ago and have changed it, hummmm, about 15 times since then. And I must tell you that it looks nothing like this now. In fact most of it is in the waste bucket now. Why post it then you ask?
Well because I have not made a replacement card for it yet and I had the pic of it already so HERE IT IS/WAS.
The big problem here is that I only have till FRIDAY to do just that. You see it was suposed to be my sisters Birthday card, BUUUUT In my infinit wisdom or lack there of I kept changeing this one and now there is no card for Debbie. Oh my, what's a girl to do.

So I took this time out from the packing and all the crappy stuff that goes with it to hopefully get a few cards done and visit all my blogg'in buddies. But that will have to wait till tomorrow now cause boy am I tired, SHEESH, I tell you I am getting old, it's not quite 9PM here and I am so ready for bed.

So Thanks for stopping by, I am off to dreamland now and hopefully I will have something to post tomorrow.
