She is also going to have some digital stamps tomorrow for sale of a couple different Anyas. I have some male ones to show you tomorrow which come from the same company and which are too cute.

Another Victoria Case - Fairy with Cupcake

I know I already did this one but thought I would make another one she is just so darn cute. This one is made with copics and the cupcake in the background is a diecut that I used. I thought it matched it real well.

I hope everyone is going to be enjoying their New Years Eve tonight. Mysef, I am just going to be in my scraproom making cards and if I am lucky I will be able to stay up till midnight but that is lucky. I was in bed at 11:30 last night. Its funny, at my job I work from 11pm - 9am and then I come home and sleep from 1030am - 3pm and I am fine. But on my days off I am in bed most nights by 11pm and then sleep till 7 am LOL....

Victoria Case - Lil Snowman

This little guy from Victoria Case is so adorable. And very easy to whip up in a seconds notice. I received him on Friday and needed some last minute Christmas cards so I whipped up 3 different one's that I could mail out on Saturday. They all only took me a few minutes to make but yet they look very elegant. I used flocking on the hat.

I have a couple more of hers to show you this week too. These can all be bought at her website Victoria Case Designs. If you haven't been there yet be sure to check them out. They also are on ezmount already and come with a color copy of the stamp so you can see it already colored which is great.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend..

New Sugarnellies - Leanne Ellis

Wow I have been totally busy getting ready for Christmas. The last 2 days I spent baking cookies and fudge. Then tonight I packaged it all up for work, and hubby's work and my parents. But I did find time to make a few cards today. Tonight I am showing you a new SugarNellie's one I got which can be bought at Funky Kits. Then tomorrow will show you some new Victoria Case ones I did.

The designer for tonights card from Sugar Nellies is Leanne Ellis. She is brand new to Sugar Nellies and I can't wait to see what else she comes up with. This card was stamped on Kraft Paper from Papertrey Ink and then I used my colored pencils and gamsol to color it. I added Lacquer to the inside of the flower. Pretty simple but still very cute.

Hope everyone has a great weekend as I am sure everyone is hurrying to get done with those last minute Christmas items. Only a few more days...

5 minute Baby Card

I needed a baby card tonight for one of my co workers. Him and his wife are having a baby and she is due today. I figured since the holidays and I only work 2 days that I might as well give him his present I made for him. I made a fleece tie blanket and then got him an outfit and some bottles. No baby cards on hand so I had to whip something up fast. This is what I came up with.

Paper is some I had on hand. Diecut is cuttlebug. Rickrack is Bazzill. The stamps were embossed and then made 3d. They are Stampin Up Toybox which is retired. I colored with copics and distressed the edges. Sewed along the edges.. Not bad for 5 minutes I thought.

I am so glad I bought my electric start last week. OMG it's freezin outside. -30 tonight with windchill. Which is crazy. Suppose to be cold like this all week. My son was stuck up at his dad's last night because he couldn't get out of the driveway to meet me they had 12 inches of snow 3 hours north of us. Brrr I am not ready for this kind of weather I need to be somewhere Tropical.

Have a great week....

Thomas Kinkade

Here is a card I made with microbeads. This is not a stamp its actually some paper that is sold by Cornish Heritage Farms its so nice. It comes in a 8 x 8 bundle which I can't remember how many are in there but its like $17 I think. So its not cheap. This piece was 4 x 4 i think. I used 2 sided tape sheets on top and then loaded it with microbeads. Its gorgeous in person but doesn't show up well in a scan.

It's going to be a very slow couple of weeks on my blog as I am trying to get done with Christmas stuff. I normally put mine off till the last minute. Plus I still have my baking to do. I guess no dieting till AFTER the holidays haha. I am making some cookies for here and then my work and hubby's work. I also have a band concert for my son this week. I am done buying but still need stocking stuff and also stuff for the doggies for Christmas. They need stuff also.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Christmas is coming too fast

I am still here but been super busy trying to get my stuff done for Christmas
haha where did all the time go? Will try to post some cards I made for Gifts
later today...

High Hopes - Dragon

Here is a High Hopes stamp I bought that I used to make this dragon card. Colored in markers and used some scrap paper I had and flower and brads.

Someone asked how many stamps I had LOL. I couldn't even begin to count. I store most of mine these days in binders which are seperated by company or designers. I have 20 of those full and have a bunch of loose sheets. I also have tons of tupperware containers full of mounted stamps along with a 6 foot high x 4 foot wide bookshelf stacked with stamping up containers which are full of different company stamps. I also have like 500 sets of stampin up which are um in cd cases. Someday I am going to count them all.
