You brighten my day!

I used a die from Gina Marie Designs, she actually has affordable dies.  This set was ten dollars.  Most companies charge around 20.   So, go check her out here!

Focus on things

I knew when this stamp was release over at UNITYSTAMPCO.   I had to have it.   I don't buy often, and it has to be something that speaks to me.  This was one of those omg I have to have it stamps.   Unfortunately most of unity does that to me.   They are deeply etched red rubber stamps on cling foam.   This set is called focus on the things.   The washi tape is from hobby lobby   I colored with copics.     I hope today you find something that makes you happy.   Take a second and speak to God, or just breath in the scent of spring...what ever floats your boat, just take a second to focus on something good.   Right now we all need a little of that!

A very long four years!

Four years ago my husband came home from work and informed me he'd like to go to nursing school.   Well, he did and this past Wednesday he was pinned.   It was a hard road and a long one.  Four years of ups downs stress and worry.  He did it!   I've had company since the 9th.  Not much time in my stamp room.  I am so proud of my husband.  He starts on his bachelors degree at Rutgers University in the fall.   So, he''s not really done but hopefully the hardest part is behind us, and he'll soon have a job that offers us insurance.   (something we desperately need)  So, here we are with our youngest son!

I'll be back tomorrow with a cute card using a new stamp from Unity stamp co.

a little beach card

Living at the beach I think I'll get a lot of use from these adorable seagulls from My Favorite Things.

  I don't actually go to the beach often.  It's been about 4 years.   I did by a beach tag this year, so well see.  I really hope to find time to relax and read.  I think its important to spend time on ourselves.

sunday funday!

We had two gorgeous days here is southern New Jersey.  Then today BAM cold and rainy.  I'm ready for warmer days and not wearing coats and ugg boots.  I'm so over being cold.

  For todays card I used a stamp from UNITY stamp co.  If you go over to the site everything is over 50% off for their birthday celebration.   Take a look their is really something for everyone.  They have over 60,000 images.  They are cook to order so the make the stamps when you place and order.   I usually get them in about a week.  Shipping is also four dollars so they are very reasonable.

This card is simple, can be recreated easily.   I colored the flower with zig real brush markers. pattern paper and that is about it.  easy but pretty.

Follow your dreams

Hi guys,  Today I'm sharing a card from the Cats Pajamas the images are really cute.   They are easy to color too!  You can purchase them here!  The stamps are affordable and shipping is pretty fast.

I again used distress oxides for the back ground.   I used a piece of clear plastic to place the ink where I wanted.  It's another easy technique.   Most everyone knows how to do this stuff, So, I won't bore you with the details.

One thing is for sure, I use a lot of UNITY stamps.  This is in the angie girl line.   If you have not check them out, you should.   They run sales every weekend.  not all the stamps are always on sale so check back often to see if what you want is on sale.  There is a facebook group called Unity show and tell.  It's the nicest group of women.  It remind me of the closeness of the two peas girls (remember two peas in a bucket) from back in the day. 

Another thing that I absolutely love is Distress oxides!  You can buy them HERE.   They are so much fun.  I love the way the colors blend and swirl.  They make me happy.  Tim hit it out of the park with this one.  I don't own all the colors yet but I am working on it.  I used three colors for this card.  Super easy and makes a big impact.  In my opinion.  haha

Have a great day!

You brighten my day!
