Still Around

I am still around haven't gone anywhere just haven't done any stamping. I figured I would take a break with Christmas coming up so fast. I have got almost all the new Penny Black Valentine/Easter stamps on order so you will be seeing plenty of those after the first of the year for sure.

I hope everyone has a great Christmas and check back after the first of the year for all my new cards for upcoming Holidays.

Gold Snowflake and Angel

Ok here are 2 more I did today. First one is the Gold Snowflake - Stamp is by Impression Obsession which i have fallen in love with. Its just so Elegant. I added metallic sparkleys to the top of the snowflakes and then Gold rhinestones on other places. I embossed the background with my cuttlebug. Papers are curious metallics and gold metallic cardstock which i don't know who makes just the plain gold one. I used gold embossing powder and ribbon trim is from May Arts.

2nd on is from the SU mini - Its embossed in gold and then i used my copic markers and colored in the angel and then used glitter on the wings. I love how it turned out.

Silver Snowflake

This scan does not do this card justice. Not to mention because of the ribbon it won't scan straight LOL. Its simple - elegant and very beautiful in person. I used silver Curious Metallic cardstock and then embossed the snowflake and saying in Silver Embossing powder. I then backed it with Silver cardstock and white curious metallics cardstock. Then i added a few rhinestones and a ribbon. As I said simple but elegant and it took me all of 5 minutes.

Glittery Cards

Winter has come fast to Minnesota. Since last Saturday we have gotten like 15 - 16 inches of snow. We just got a new snowblower so we are getting plenty of use of that.

On the creative note, I have been working on Christmas Cards and also Teacher Gifts and such. Here are a couple of cards I did tonight. First card is Elzy Bells Stamps which I love. I colored with pencils and then added rhinestones to their crowns. Papers is KI Memories and is shimmery. I got it free for buying over $50 at Archivers today. I believe their is 20 different sheets in the pack. Free with purchase of $50 or more until it runs out.

Next is my Stampendous Reindeer which i just love. I added glitter to her horns and trim and ice - Around the edges is Stardust by stampendous Embossing power. Added Rhinestones for the noses and rhinestone stickers on the edges. Along with Shimmery KI Memories paper again and silver Stardream paper.....

Hope everyone is ready for Christmas not tooo long now.

Thursday, November 29, 2007


Sorry i haven't posted at all I have been swamped with work and everyday things. I am also working furiously on Christmas presents. My son informed me he had 7 teachers he wanted me to make things for. Sigh...

Anyways i bought this stamp off ebay i just love it. She has a little girl too. But thought the boy was adorable. I used Chalk ink and then embossed in clear. Used my copic markers to color it. Made the hat and boots 3d.

The paper is Stampin Up's and then I added some cute little prima flowers which I just love.

It might be kinda slow around here but will still show you what i am working on. I probably won't be putting much on Ebay until I get my own stuff done and then it will be Valentine Cards probably for a few weeks.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week....

Back to work again

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and wonderful shopping yesterday. Myself i never go out on Black Friday. I did that one year it was the year when Tickle Me Elmo first came out and there was actually people fighting over this toy. Grown woman, it was definately a funny sight. I am done Christmas shopping anyways I did majority of mine on Amazon and Gift Cards. Which I am excited for Christmas this year because I am done shopping. I have been known to leave things a week before Christmas and then I am so stressed out its not funny.

As you can see by ebay i haven't been very energetic lately. I figured everyone is getting ready to send out there Christmas cards so no sense in putting any Christmas ones out so i've been making my own Christmas Cards and a few Monogram sets to give away. My son also likes to give his teachers gift packs with a dozen or so cards in it. He said his teachers love them. So i have been working on those.

Here is a card i made using one of the newest sets from Papertrey. I used Colorbox Chalk in and then put glitter over it and used an embossing gun to dry it. I have problems with this ink smearing really bad. I did this on a white Curious metallics sparkly cardstock which i love. Then i did the friends on another sheet of same with Merlot Chalk in. I used the flowers and went over the paper too but you can't see it because the main piece is too big. This is a great set along with all her others... Have a great weekend.

Snowman and Angels

Thought I would share 2 cards i made with you tonight. This is my last night of work which i am so glad. I plan on making hopefully more cards on my days off.

First one is an angel isn't she gorgeous - Used Chatterbox textured paper and then I colored it in markers and took my Copic Atyou glitter pens and did the gold and red and green and yellow. I put ultrafine glitter on the wings of the angel and rhinestones for the hollys. I buy all my rhinestones at Joann's because you can get hundreds for less than the price you can buy the stick one's for at scrapbook stores. I never trust the sticky one's as that pulls off very easy. I use just a tad of quick dry glue and haven't had any fall off. I also used a Star that was in a Christmas bottle of Prima flowers i bought. And of course May Arts ribbon. Stamp is Darcies.

Next Card is my snowman card - He has ultrafine glitter on him and stamped the Happy Winter and colored it in marker and outlined it in glitter. Background i embossed with my cuttlebug and sprayed it with Tattered Angels glimmer mist - snowflake. I am still mixed about this stuff. I sprayed it 2x and i can see little shimmer but not alot. I definately need to play around with this more to see if its worth the price.

Have a great evening

Eat Cake

Well back to work tonight I go but I had to show you this card I just finished. Its actually 3 stamps from Eat Cake Graphics. Which link is on the right hand column with all my other one's. I colored it all in Pencils and used my Copic Glitter pens for the lights in the window. I penciled in the Christmas tree in one of the windows. I added just streaks of glitter since there was sooo much white. I made the kids all 3d and same thing colored them with pencils and gamsol. Card is 5 x 7 inchs. If you haven't check out this stamp company then i highly suggest taking a look. Its a gal that runs it and she only has new stamps maybe 2x a year but is highly talented. She nows has a shopping cart and has great shipping for um stamps.... Have a great Evening.

Viruses and FOOD

Well as you can see by ebay I didn't have very good days off. I went to a website for my dad yesterday morning and got a virus which disabled my computer rights. It thought i was a visitor and "It" was the admin. I didn't even have rights to shut down my computer and it renamed my internet explorer and couldn't get my task manager among a million other things. Hubby said it was a bad one. I downloaded a virus scan which didn't find it. So reformat and start from scratch. I hate that when that happens. I didn't get up and running till late last night so needless to say I didn't get much time to get anything done. I did however make a great supper which i will share with you.... every one loved it and i have one picky family when it comes to food.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

6 slices Swiss Cheese

6 slices Ham

3 TBSP Flour

1 tsp Paprika

6 TBSP Margarine

1/2 cup dry white wine (Carlifornia Chardonnay)

1 tsp Chicken Nouillon Granules

1 TBSP Cornstarch

1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

1. Pound chicken breasts if they are to thick. Place a cheese and ham slice on each breast within 1/2 inch of the edges. Fold the edges of the chicken over the filling, and secure with toothpicks. Mix the flour and paprike in a small bowl, and coat the chicken pieces.

2. Heat the Margarine in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and cook the chicken until browned on all sides. Add the wine and bouillon, Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 30 minutes, until chicken is now longer pink and juices run clear.

3. Remove the toothpicks, and transfer toe breasts to a warm platter. Blend the cornstarch with the cream in a small bowl, and whisk slowly into the skillet. Cook, stirring until thickened, and pour over the chicken. Serve Warm.

Its a great recipe. I doubled the sauce (Wine, Chicken Bouillon, Cornstarch and whipping cream) and put it over white rice which i made to go within. Add some buns and you are all set. This recipe is definately a keeper. Takes about an hour all together to prepare and cook.

Ok lastly i am gonna share a card i found time to make tonight. Its a set i believe by Hero arts. I bought 4 different ones today and off the top of my head i can't remember which was which but this one had like 6 stamps with it. I used 4 of them in this card. I did the birds and tree on stardream paper and colored with pencils and gamsol. I made 3 layers of 3d - then stamped the small scallop circle and inked the edges. I did the next circle which i inked also and added some daisy d textured paper and a couple layers of cardstock. Isn't it great....

Back to work tomorrow fun fun... Have a great weekend. Hopefully I make some more cards to post tomorrow.

Wednesday, November 7, 2007


Soon as i seen this stamp i knew i had to have it. Background has kinds of wine all over it - front is made on Kraft paper which i penciled and made the grapes 3d - I distressed the edges. I added some ribbon and a cute little grape charm. I just love how this turned out.

Speaking of wine i need to go get some tomorrow. I found a recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu that looks to die for. I am going to make it tomorrow night. It uses Dry White Wine in it along with heavy cream. I will let you know how it turns out. I don't cook much so it will be a treat for everyone. I am a great cook i just get lazy and don't feel like it so normally its Dominos to the rescue.. Have a great evening

Monday, November 5, 2007


As you can see i have been more ambitious than normal. I think thats a good thing LOL. It's getting very cold here. In the 30's is high for this week. I am so not looking forward to winter and snow. If I had my way and no family i would definately be some where warm. Last Thanksgiving I took my daughter to Mexico for a special treat for her. I wish it would have been this year makes me miss it there so much and the warmth. But anyways enough thinking about warmth when i have months ahead with nothing but cold brrrr....

I thought I would post these reindeers i made. I colored them all with pencils and gamsol and added little rhinestone for noses. I just love em. It was wierd because they came out last year and i believe it was after the holidays they came out. I haven't see them since then and of course it was from stampendous the same makers of the fluffles... This year they have the penguins and the elf collection along with the blessed family collection. Very cute stamps.... Have a great week.

Sunday, November 4, 2007


Only 3 more nights left of work LOL. I am wiped today i took some tylenol pm before i went to sleep this morning thinking it might help me sleep longer but now i feel kind of out of it. I don't think I will be doing that again. Maybe a glass of wine next time?

Well seeing how i am off i haven't got nothing new that i have done. But i will on my days off so instead posting this beautiful church i made the other day.

Which is definately a classic - it was done with colored pencils and gamsol. Then i added glitter using my sakura pen to put where i wanted glue and then added glitter. I buy the ultra fine glitter that Hero Arts makes i think. I have seen several brands and i am sure it is all the same i just buy the cheapest most of the time.

I got a Wine Stamp and another Wine list stamp coming. Thought it might be nice for a Thinking of you card or something. I got a couple new house mouse coming too. I am trying to be good with Christmas coming and not order too much but its very hard for me not to do. Have a great evening...

Thursday, November 1, 2007


Wow week went by fast again and today was my day off so of course i made some cards. I am hoping to make a bunch tomorrow also. But today i dug out my fluffles which i always wished they would have made more of them because they are adorable but they never have. These two i made today.

The first one i sewed with red around the edges on my sewing machine. I found that leaving white thread in the bobbin didn't show on the card. I didn't realize they you could swap thread that easy but of course i don't know anything about sewing LOL. I used pencils and gamsol on it and then used a different colored stickles on each ornament and made them all 3d. Didn't it turn out adorable.

Second one I did in pencil also. Cut out each of the treats and made them 3d - added glitter for frosting and lacquer on the candy cane to make it shiny. Very cute isn't it. Check out the gingerbread charm way adorable.... Well back to my cards. Have a great evening.

Another Believe set

I made this yesterday from the Papertrey Believe set again. I did add a fluffy pompom to his hat but forgot when i scanned this LOL. Done with mostly pencils and gamsol and some markers to outline the tree leaves to give it more depth. I added Crystal effects to each berry so they were raised and flocking on all the white on Santa. I think i might make one of these for my husbands Grandma for Christmas. I just love Santa in blue.... Have a great day. I go to work tonight but right now i am headed to go see SAW 4 with my daughter. I love them SAW movies almost as much as i use to love the FREDDIES.... LOL

Piece of Cake

I've made so many cute cards i don't know which one's to post on here. These are both made with Piece of cake which is tons of seperate pieces and then you build them up. Like the Have your cake is 4 different stamps - The Cake and Eat one stamp and Have your and it too is another one and then frosting and filling are 2 stamps too. I used chalk inks on these.

Second card i used my Alcohol inks and did the background with i believe it was pearl and gold. I stamped the Cake out of pink chalk in and then red for the flowers which is actually one stamp. Celebrate also comes in that set - Added Rhinestones to the cake and also some little sparkly rhinestones. Very cute don't you think....


I love these Elzybells stamps with of course link being on the side over there. I bought almost all of them. This one turned out so cute. I sewed along the edges with my little sewing machine. I used my Copic Spica pens and went along the border of the cloud and other areas so it sparkles a little bit. Also took ribbon and hung a little snowflake charm on it. Then added the little saying at the bottom which is also hers. I run out of ideas though and can't think of anything new to do. Hopefully I can come up with things for the other one's so you can see them.

Thursday, October 25, 2007


Well as you can see by ebay i was busy today and made a bunch of cards. I thought i would share this one with you i love how it turned out. Stamp set is called "Believe" by PapertreyInk which is on my links. I colored the tree in pencils and then i took my Copic markers and shaded each leaf. I added red markers for the berries and then used my Copic Spicas and sparked each one. Then i used my Clear Lacquer and added a dot to each one to raise it. Santa is colored in pencils except for his face i used markers. Then i did the same with the wreath as i did for the tree. I added a metal bracket which is from stampin up but they sell similiar at Joanns. Also can't forget i took a fuzzy pompom for the hat and ribbon for the wreath. Glitter Cardstock is from Joann's Glitter Cardstock Stack.

Christmas Bunnies

I am just leaving for work in a few minutes but i made some cards tonight to throw on ebay and I wanted to share with you my bunny one. I buy these from HM Stamps he gives a great discount which i believe is 20% below retail . I think i own all buy a couple of the Bunnies and have 100+ of the mice which i love too. But this card is just simple - I colored one of the bunnies in pencil and then the tree and carrots. The white bunny is not colored except for ears and tail and nose. I made a bunch of the carrots 3d and also the bunnies. I used my copic sparkly gold pen for the ornament holders. I added ribbon i got at Michaels. Very cute i love how it turned out...

Weight Loss

I think my story is everyone's these days but as you can see by my little ticker on the side i have been trying to lose weight forever. I quit smoking 4 years ago and gained an instant 40lbs from my 120lbs and its been a constant battle since. I think I have tried every product on the market today from powers - liquids - shakes you name it. Few of those brands would be Metabalife - Trimspa - Dexatrim - Slimfast only to name a few.

I was at work a couple weeks researching weightloss. I know it gets harder after 40 but it shouldn't be impossible. My problem is not the amount of food i eat at a sitting but that i munch munch munch all the time. I think everytime i go into the kitchen i grab a handful of something to eat. So ok back to the research. Anyways i ran into something called Hoodia - its all natural and grows in South Africa which its a plant. They are trying to make synthetic one's here in the states so you got to be careful. Must say 100% pure on it. I have only found a couple distributors of it that were legit. Which are HoodiThin and DesertBurn there are a couple more too but i was more interested in liquid as its immediately absorbed unlike pills that take forever to kick in.

I am too cheap so after doing my research i bought a couple bottles of HoodiThin on ebay. I think i paid $26 for one and $30 for the other. It was used in Africa while they were on hunting trips they ate it because it filled them up without eating or bringing along a bunch of food. Now i am thinking but does it work. I have wasted so much money on these products whats another right. So when it came last monday i believe it was it suggests 1 full dropper a meal but then your little bottle wouldn't last long. I put in 1/4 dropper and use it 4 x a day when i am hungry or feel like munching. Guess what no food cravings and i am full all the time. You have to make yourself eat because obviously not eating isn't healthy. But since last money i have dropped about 5lbs which everyone knows first week you lose more than others but keep track of my tracker and you can see how much i lose.

I don't feel any side effects like i do with other weight loss products - No headaches - sick to my stomache - shakes - tremors or anything else. First couple of nights i did have some horrible dreams but that might have just been that day's stress. But if there is someone out there like me its worth a try. My husband is also doing it i don't know if its because of weight or what but he needs the full dropper where as i get by with the 1/4.

Oh also I am switching to the Desert burn when i am done with this bottle because its double the size of the bottle of hoodithin and it is double the Milligrams so 250mg per serving vs 500mg of Desert Juice and its a 2oz bottle whereas Hoodithin is only 1oz. I can't tell you yet on its effects but its 100% though i haven't see it for sale on ebay i bought the 3 bottles of their website for like $130 and there is $10 off till Nov sometime if you enter Fall777 for the 3 bottles. It came withint just a couple days also.

2 more days of work left for me this week and then i will post some new cards. Have a great week.

Weekend Gone

Wow where does the week go? My weekend ends in about 20 minutes and then I have to go to work. Thought i would post another Thomas Kinkade card i made this evening. These cards take a long time to make because of all the coloring that is on them. I think they look nice in just one color too but this one i colored pieces of it. Colored in pencils and gamsol and then added some glitter.

My anniversary was today which hubby came home with a dozen roses last weekend because he thought it was our anniversary. He knows when it is but he was thinking 10/20 and when it was the 10th he got a tad confused. So i came home from my parents yesterday and he had 2 dozen roses waiting for me. He said there was double because he messed up last weekend... I love roses just wished they lasted longer than they do. But wasn't that sweet...

Thursday, October 18, 2007


I am driving up to my parents house tomorrow morning to spend the day with them as its their 50th Anniversary. They are about 3 hours one way from me. I thought I would take them out for dinner. I was trying to think of a card for them which i tried making several and hated all of them. Finally i came across this stamp i bought from Impression Obsession - I embossed it in gold and then took Twinkling H20's and colored it. I used my quickutz to cut out Mom and Dad and then Happy 50th Anniversary on the inside. It's gorgeous in person.... Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Thomas Kinkade

I apologize i haven't had much to post lately. I go in slumps where i burn myself out and don't feel like making anything. I am kinda in one of those right now. So i will be making mainly Christmas cards.

Ok here is some stamps i got the other day I just love them but wow the one i colored - tons of work took me a long time. Not sure how many of those i will do. I colored the first one in prismacolored penciles and gamsol. Then for the lights i used Copica Spica markers that are kinda shimmery. Next card is done in just blue bayou Stampin up ink on plain white cardstock and then i added glitter to both. I love how they turned out though.

Ok will post some more cards later this evening - I already made them last night hehe...

Lots of Mice

Wow i have been so busy it seems with kids stuff and work and everything else I haven't had time to make any cards this week. So i sat down today and made a few. These are the newest stamps by Art Gone Wild arn't they great. I just love their little mice.

Nothing special done to them they were colored with Copic markers and i made parts of them 3d - Added some liquid applique to the pie one to make the frosting look real. I am hoping to get some more cards made tonight.

Thursday, October 4, 2007

Beautiful Christmas Flowers

I haven't posted anything on my days off so I thought I would post something I just finished. I just received my Impression Obsession order. I was hoping to post a coffee card tonight but my order got messed up and i didn't get the one set of coffee stamps so hopefully i will have those next week. This set is gorgeous too though, its called Wreaths & Garland . It's a clear set with a bunch of little one's. I have never been a big acrylic person but once i figured out how to get them started now i don't mind them. Everytime I use to stamp with them the ink got pulled off and they never made a clear solid image. But Nicole at Papertrey said to take a white eraser on them and dang it works great. Now i don't have any problems, well except my fingers getting full of ink putting them on and off the acrylic blocks LOL. This one anyways I did in Curious Metallics Ice Gold shimmery Cardstock. I used 3 of the different leafs in the set and the flower and the pinecone. I love how it turned out, at first i wasn't sure of it but its gorgeous. I made the flowers 3d and added a rhinestone to each and some ribbon i bought at Michaels tonight.

Thursday, September 27, 2007

Card Tin

Isn't this great I made this today. Unfortunately its gonna make me gain weight eating these as I ate 1 to every 4 i wrapped LOL. I stamped each chocolate and then decorated a band for the tin. I made a card to match. I stamped on Shimmery Stardream cardstock.

I added some ribbon i got at michaels and then some chipboard snowflakes i cut out using my cuttlebug. I used some Rhinestones i got at Archivers... This turned out so cute i wish my pictures would have turned out better.

Monday, September 24, 2007


Gotta love presents. Of course i am working and havent done any stamping on those days until my days off. I am way too wiped and no energy. But today hubby gave me to bracelets for an early anniversary present. We have been married 9 years in October. My little schnauzer is my baby she sleeps with me and is my shadow. So he trys to buy me stuff with her on it. I got 2 bracelets one is an italian charm bracelets its gorgeous and the other one is a silver bracelet with her being the charm. I put pictures up. The charm bracelet has another dog on it in the picture but see the seperate picture with the charm. Very cute.

I also got a whole order of High Hope stamps today for Fall which i am going to be making on my days off... stay tuned. And have a great week....

Friday, September 21, 2007


I was minding my own business today surfing along and was on Splitcoast stampers and looking through the gallery when one of my cards popped out at me. I was like NO WAY - I remember making it beginning of summer because I have been thinking of using the stamp recently. So i was like who would ever pass off someones card or design as their own. So i went searching through all my old listings because Auctiva saves them for you and found it. So i went back and held the two up side by side. There isn't anything close to being different. I posted the old auction again as a new auction on Ebay so I could send the person the link. Its the Hedgie Mail Card. So i went back and found out who bought the card and yep same person as posted it. I sent her a private message telling her while i appreciate the complements to post either my card or an exact replication that i have it posted on my auctions to please not replicate. I told her it takes away from it being "Original" when that is done. Maybe i was a bit to hasty but its wierd seeing someone else get compliments on a card you did and claiming it for their own... Very strange. Anyways now that i am done venting because it still makes me made here is a cute card i made today....

House mouse stamp one of their new one's i can't remember the name though. HM stamps has it on his site. By the way his prices are ALWAYS 20% below retail so buy your house mouse stamps from him. Its a retired guy and he's great. This one was hard to 3d so i just made the bags 3d and colored the rest with pencil.
I wasn't too ambitious today. My husband stayed home from work so he dragged me to Best Buy but i got a new Divx DVD player out of the deal as an early anniversary present so i cant' complain. Then my son was suppose to go to his dad's tonight which i drive 1 1/2 hour one way to meet half way but he never called so i've been kinda lazing it all day. Oh yeh then i got my Joann's order which included 3 inch Cropper Hopper embellishment drawers and ribbon holders and clips. I watched Day's of our Lives and put all my loose ribbon on the holders.. I gotta order some more not near enough. Ok i best get back to my cards.

Thursday, September 20, 2007

Almost forgot notecards

Almost forgot i was gonna show these notecards i made yesterday. I still don't have the hang of watercoloring and to me its faster to color with pencils but they turned out ok i think... I need some more of these stamps so i can do some more i only have a couple. They are by Rosies Roadshow I love em..

Thursday Evening

Wow days go by fast don't they. Are any of you watching my Christmas countdown? Kinda scares me how fast those days go by. I haven't really given Christmas a thought yet but i guess i better since it boils down to 5 paychecks till Christmas LOL...

Here is a card i just finished making isn't it cute. Its a penny black stamp and i colored with pencils on kraft paper... I just love the paper i have some in pink also. I cut the head out and made that 3d along with the bowl... very cute i think for a guy's birthday.

Monday Night

Well its Monday night its my last night for this week as I took tomorrow night off. I got a nice surprice in the mail today and got a bunch of embossing dies that look like my scallop punches but in all shapes and sizes and they are embossed along the edge. I used one in this card I am going to show you but its hard to see in pictures.

This card i made because i had this paper left over from another card and now i am all out of it. I like it looks like its knitted. I stamped a fluffles on that paper and used the sweater and yarn ball to cut out to match the background.

Ok on my way to work have a great evening...

Sunday, September 16, 2007

Sunday Evening

Well i started back to work last night so my energy level is like zero. I worked on 2 cards this evening. This is one of them. Puppy is so cute. I colored him with pencils and used my cuttlebug to do the background with one of the Christmas embossing folders. I used the other one and did the snowflake circle behind the puppy. I added some chipboard snowflakes and put some glitter on them so they would sparkle which were also cut out of my cuttlebug.

Have a great evening... Only 2 more nights for me because i took my Friday off which is Tuesday evening. Hopefully i get some new stamps this week and can make something you haven't seen before...

Friday, September 14, 2007

Christmas Puppy

Ok last night I made a few cards but i absolutely love this little puppy. I stamped him on craft paper and then I had a little tiny snowflake which i stamped in white on the background. I bought some sparkly markers from Ellen (Link on front page) which i love so the nose and headband and ribbon are sparkly. I just got these markers maybe a month ago and i already used all my white. Which is clear and you can put over any color. The Happy Holiday which are metal are from Oriental Trading. I don't remember how much they were but everything at that place to me is fairly cheap. Added 3 layers of cardstock and paper. The paper which is coated is from Darcies i forgot i bought it LOL... Everything is colored with colored pencils except the copic sparkly markers.
Someone commented and asked me how many stamps i own LOL.... Hmm i never really thought about it but i am starting to Unmount my Stampin up sets and have already went through 300 CD cases and i have maybe 200 left?? I have hundreds of different companies which Penny Black being one of my favorite and Stampendous. I have 100+ house mouse cause i just counted them recently. And tons of others... I never sat and figured it out cause i would get scared thinking how much money i have spent in stamps. I should probably sit down one of these days and go through my stamps and add more insurance on the house just in case.
Have a great weekend. Me and my husband are taking my son to the Renaissance Festival tomorrow. Its been kinda chilly heare only in the 60's so should be a good day for walking around...

The Buzzard

Ok had to post this card cause i just love how it turned out. I just ordered a bunch of new stamps and some of them came today. I started with a white background and then used the Happy Birthday Banner on the top. Then i stamped some grass on the bottom and the little bees. I colored the buzzard in pencils and markers and put him on top with a couple balloons. The saying I bought with the stamp... Very cute. I thought would be a great card to give to a guy.

Wednesday, September 12, 2007


I got my new Bella stamps the other day. I think they are so cute... This is the Halloween one I made. I also got a Veggie Bella and a Feelabella I am going to make.

New Stampendous Stamps

I got these little stamps the other day. I truely love them they are so cute. A bunch of little elves named Pixel and Pookie... Nothing special about these cards outside the fact they are adorable. Both cards I am using the new paper by K & Company that came in a stack.

Well back to work tonight which I am so not looking forward to. Maybe it will be slow and i can work on my large Christmas order I don't have done yet. Have a great evenin

More new kinds of transparency cards

I had to post another post today to show these adorable cards i did. I used a sheet of transparency and then stamped on them. The snowflake one has white snowflakes stamped on it and then the halloween one has bats. I let them dry because they smear easy if you don't let them have a good drying. The snowflake one i stamped in Hybrid Pallette Canvas and the Bats in Black Stazon which drys a little faster. I think made a normal card underneath with 3 additional layers.

I made the punch outs and stamped little houses on both. Christmas house is 3d along with the Ghost house and then added snowflakes made with stardream paper its shimmery. I then tied ribbon at the tops of both with a charm. Which holds the transparency in place. I also put a couple little pieces of 2 sided red liner tape on the front top so where you can't see it. Arn't they great. Pictures obviously don't do them justice.... I had some Metallic Class a peel type stickers that said Season's Greetings I added to the snowflake card. It adds so much i wish i had Happy Halloween sayings too...
I almost forgot to add that the Houses both of them are A Muse Stamps which i love they are soooo adorable. You will find the link under my links column....
Anyways Again have a great weekend.
