My stampin UP Demo!

Hi all,

  Today I wanted to share a littlle bit about one of my bff's Sue.  Sue, Happens to be not only my friend but my Stampin' up demo.  

 As some of you may know Su know has unmounted red rubber stamps.  They are really nice and the container they keep them in is fab!  The new blocks they came out with are the best I've seen. They are rounded light weight and fit so well in your hand.  I just ordered one and can't wait to get it.

If you would like to shop for some new stamps and are considering SU, please check out her site HERE!

The project shown here was made with all SU products.  Sue, is also a great teacher and has many fantastic ideas.  If you would like to host a card party let her know.

Thanks Sue, for all you do for Avery & I, and your frienship means a lot more to me then you know!

OWH stars and stripes blog.

I'm so happy that I was asked to be a guest blogger on the OWH Stars & Stripes blog today.

  Sandy, asked me to show how I use an online source to do watermarks.  It's a good idea to add one to your cards when posting your art to different places.  It's a good way to protect your work.

Please go visit them and leave some love!

Buzzing bees.

Hey all,

  I got this set from SU, some time ago.  I never really used it and I'm glad I did because it was a lot of fun to color.  I used copics and some paper from my bin.  I used the stamp a majig to line up the image so the bee was standing on the lid.  Cute huh!

halloween 2009 (the stash is fake..thank GOD)

I am in love with my husband.  Shocking i know.  Some women would be shocked by that statement, and that is a shame.  

Today I've been married for 11 years.  I am one of those girls that loves the movie when the guy fights for the girl the guy that loves the girl and etc..etc.. (kinda like edward and bella true love blah blah blah)

anyway, I am not sure I felt or thought that I had that when I was first married.  I had a crappy past, and a lot of bags to deal with.   I looked at my husband one day a few years back and I got smacked not by him by that wow, knock your socks off kinda love.  I was like wow, he IS my guy, my true love my happy ending.  I am thankfull for our trials and the fact that I can honestly say I am happily married.  We don't fight often, rarely in fact.  He does not mind my shopping addiction, and I don't mind his.  We'll don't tell him that.  He has his hobby I have mine and it's all good.

Thanks honey for a wild 11 years here's to another 100.  I love you!


I {heart} gorjuss stamps!

Okay, I just can't help it. I do love these images.  They are so darn cute and so darn fun to color.  There is just something about them I adore.  I plan to get a few (at least 4) more in a few weeks.

I used about 10 pcs, of old webster paper fro the flower.  (su punch, works great for this flower)  I used a big brad in the middle.  NOt sure who that is from.  Do people really keep track of all that stuff?

We'll have a warm day!

sugar bowl challenge 29!

This card is for the Sugar Bowl challenge.  You can visit them HERE! and for the sugar Nellie stamps you can shop for them HERE!

 This card was really hard, not because of the sketch as much as the "please add", I knew I wanted to use this image, but I had to add buttons, and really did not see them with this design.  So, I took three little buttons and added them around the glowers.  I was going to use them for the glower center but it just did'nt flow for me.  This turned out okay it's missing something not sure what. 

PP: creative imaginatio CS: su, other Flowers: Prima Buttons from stash  Image Sugar Nellie Colored with copics.

gorjuss girl!

I am really a fan of Susan's art, I got one of her prints and love it.   Hope to one day have an original.  Coloring her images that are now stamps are so much fun.  If you would like some for you own stash, you can buy them here.  

 colored with copics, the pp is all su.  Have a great day!

Robot love

Hey bloggers,  I am happy to have something creative to show you.  It's been an awful week, but that God, He pulled us up and out.  We supposed to get another blizzard today, and I've been praying that we are able to stay home and stay warm.  I don't want to go the the shelter. 
So, this cute card (not tooting own horn) was made with a digi image that you can find here.  I do like digi images, because I can get them NOW, and I like that.  I must say they are a little hard to color and you will have to find what works with you.  I seem to leave it out then heat set it.  That work, you need to be carefull with faces and light colors.  

I used cosmo cricket pp, and I used some tim holts watch parts.  The I heart you is from the dollar bin a m's. 

Where ever you are stay warm, and safe.

  we were so cold this morning.   so far we have about 29" of snow, in some areas a little less in some a little more.

OWH stars and stamps BLOG!

Hey Bloggers,

  Looks like OWH, has a new blog if you have not checked it out, go see it here!

They are doing a sketch on Sundays, and mid-week abother challenge along with other card tips, inspiration and of course FUN!

I used the color challange and the trifold hutter card that was posted today, with instructions and a download.

This card, was what Sandy has rated a 301 card, for those of you like me has no idea what that means,  It means it's not for beginners and is a little harder.  Once I got it folded and set up, the rest was not to bad.  Not a normal card I would want to do for OWH, because of the small amount of writting room, but it's pretty darn fun to make.

Supplies:  Stamps--studio G, A muse Paper--SU  Bling M's dollar bin

Mojo Monday 124!

Hey bloggers,

This morning  before going to work, I hopped on over to the mojo monday blog, and when I saw this sketch I knew it was for this card.  I had the image sitting there and needed to make a 2nd birthday card for my Niece.

  It's simple but cute IMOH!

If you would like to visit the Mojo blog you can do so by clicking HERE!

Altered love!

  I am a sucker for this look.  When I first started it's about all I did, now I do it all, cute, punk, fun, altered etc..  I think I burned myself out at first only sticking to altered stuff.  Now that i've played around with this and that, I have more fun doing a bit of this and that.  KWIM Vern?

 This image was a rak, from Louise.  She's what I like to call a cream crafter.  She's the cream of the crop, and her work is outstanding. Check her out on her blog here!

I'm going to be getting a new camera, the camera I have now is a point and shoot pentax from '05.  If you have any suggestions let me know.  I'm also gonna make or buy a cheap light box.  I need to work on that for 2010.  (it's one of my goals)

Have a great day!


Thank you card!

This is a super quick and easy card today.  I love how The megaphone comes out of the paper.
