Pretty Pretty Card!

Hey all,

  This card will have a sentiment on it, but I left it off for the pic, because It's for someone who may see my blog....HI MOM!

  My su rep and bff Sue, showed me how to make this over the weekend.  We used the ornament punch from SU.  (yes I ordered it...LOL)

Maybe I'll do a tutorial on it for the stars and stamps blog!

See ya,

water color

This card was done using su, water color crayons.  I look at the panel and think, it needs a koy fish or a lilly pad.  I am not sure I like the background papers as seen on the pc but irl, they are more muted.

Have a great thursday!

Theme challenge 4 legged friends!

Today over at the stars and stamps blog, they asked us to do a card with a four leg'd animal.  SO, I figured everyone would pick weird animals, so I stuck with the good ole' dog.


This is from the dollar set's at m's.  I used scrap paper from my bin, and cut the green with those cool martha scissors.

Have a great day!

Operation write home SPRING BLOG HOP!



WELCOME HOPPERS, GLAD YOU WERE ABLE TO TAKE TIME OUT OF YOUR DAY AND HOP ALONG WITH US.   IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO START AT THE BEGINNING YOU MAY DO SO BY CLICKING HERE!

 Today I thought I would share a tutorial on how to make  gorgeous water color flowers!  I can tell you that they are honestly very addicting and I love making them!  

Have fun, don't forget to leave  comments, it shows us  bloggers a little love. 



Water color flower tutorial!



you will need the following items:

1. RE INKERS 2. SPRITZ BOTTLE 3. SCISSORS 4. TRAY OR LID FOR INKS 5. VERSA MARK 6. WHITE EMBOSING POWDER (OR GOLD, SILVER) 7. HEAT GUN  8. SU SHIMMER WHITE CARD STOCK  (A MUST, FOR THE TUTORIAL I USED GP, FROM WALMART AND IT DID NOT WORK PROPERLY) 

***I am not a su demo, but will give you the order #'s and a contact incase you need one at the end***


First stamp you image with versamark, sprinkle the EP over the image.  Heat set, you may do several at one time as I did here!


After your image is is heat set, give it a rought cut out, this does NOT need to be detailed or perfect.

Now for the fun!


You will want to add a few drops of several re-inkers in  your tray (or whatever u use)
you can use several colors, I've used up to 3 and 4, but play and have fun. 

*now, the reason I use the SU shimmer white, is because the water beads on it, and it stays nice.  I tried for this to use the GP, from walmart, and it did not work.  Please invest in the good paper, you won't regret it.*

Sprtz your paper well, leaving puddles of water on the image.  You'll see lots of puddles and this is good!!



Take your brush, (i used this pen, and some of the ink sucked inside, I would not use a water pen, but a brush) Dip it into your ink and lightly touch your water spots, I tend to go with one color on a few spots, and then with the others around.  play with it, you will be shocked at what you see.  at the end we dumped all the extra ink on one flower and the result was stunning...stunning ...stunning

****as you can see in the picture the water is soaking in this will NOT do that with the the su paper, I am sorry I ran out, and was not able to show you the proper way, your ink will be all puddled up and that is what you want*****

******the final image will be all puddled and not soaked in like in this picture again sorry!*****

Let dry and cut out and use on cards, scrap book pages.  you can also use vellum on this project for a curled look that is fantastic!!!

On my card, I used the real flower with the proper paper, you can see the difference..  


THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR JOINING ME TODAY ON THE OPERATION WRITE HOME SPRING BLOG HOP!  PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT AND IF YOU TRY THIS IN THE FUTURE LET ME KNOW I'D LOVE TO SEE WHAT YOU MADE.

I  AM HAPPY TO SAY THE NEXT STOP IS ,MARIA AND SHE HAPPENS TO BE  A HERO'S WIFE, SHE HAS SOME GREAT THINGS ON HER BLOG SO CHECK THEM OUT!

Taylored Espressions Sketch challenge 104

Hey bloggers, Today I thought I would share a card made with the sketch from Taylored espressions.  I have never played with any of thier challenges.  This one looks crooked to me, and I think it's cause of the circles.  I tried to use circles since the design was so square.  Not, like bad square just square in shape..LOL

Hope your having a lovely tuesday!

image is from su, colored with copics.

Alice in Wonderland...My review!


We'll I must say that this movie rocked my socks.  I loved it.  The colors, the charecters all of it.  There was not one thing I did not like about this movie.  I saw this in 3D, and loved all the images coming to life.  Tim's got a way with earth figures, and his take on the art was perfect.

Tim, chose the cast well, The Red Queen, was perfect.  The hatter, was great.  Alice, was perfection.

As for kids watching this film, I will tell you there are two things that happen that are a tad gross, but they did not bother one of the 9 year old I took, and the other asked if it was gonna get scary.  So, that being said they both loved it and those moment did not last.

I adored it so much, I think I'll go see it again today!
