Every week I have a favorite card and this week this is my favorite one. This one Is colored with copics and pencils and parts are 3d. The the background the graveyard you see on the bottom is August's release for Quickutz. It is one of the 12 inch strip borders which is why I bought my Epic six from Quickutz. As my cuttlebug doesn't do 12 inch strips so great. Also that little ghost is the other 12 inch strip Ghost border i just cut out one of the ghosts from the strip. The saying I had and I don't remember where it is from. I stamped it in white hybrid ink from Papertry which stamps out great as you can see. BTW if you don't know yet Stampin Bella changed their shipping policy and it is now free to the US after $55 USD. Which I took advantage of and have some new cute stamps coming my way which should be here in the next couple of days... Have a great week. I am happy tonight is a UK bank holiday so it will be nice and slow....

Here is yet another of my new Penny Black stamps. This one was in an acrylic set. These are all just reporoductions of the bigger stamps and made smaller. Myself I like the woodmounted bigger stamps better. I have tried to UM them and move them to easymount but the foam they have on them doesn't want to come off lOL. so my Penny blacks are one of my only stamps that are still mounted. Hope everyone is having a great week...

This is one of my new Christmas stamps I received the other day. I believe it is from the Rambling Ted collections. I didn't really know if I liked them but after receiving a few of the new ones they may need to go on my Rubber Christmas list. The one good thing about Christmas coming is I get to make one of those. Give it to hubby and Santa leaves them under the tree for me to open Christmas morning. What more could a gal want right..... lots and lots of rubber. Anyways enough dreaming this one is colored with markers and prisma's.... and parts are 3d. Gah more bad news I found out my 4 - 10 hour shifts are now 5 - 8 hour shifts which I am not happy about cause I work an hour from work and nights so my time off is going to be really short... Hope everyone else is having a great weekend.

With the holidays right around the corner. I have been making Halloween and Christmas cards. Here is a Halloween card I made this weekend. I just love the little ghosts don't you. they are the Quickutz 12" strip which I bought from Scrapyland. One strip is enough for 2 cards. Stamp I don't remember who makes.

Here is my this weeks card from Soft Pencil. Isn't it too cute. The element was flowers which I used on the tree. Also used buttons and brads. Lots of little embellishments. I always make my cards 1/4 inch smaller so they fit in their envelopes. Card was colored with Copics. I've been so busy I haven't had a chance to get much done but this week I did complete a few cards. Hope everyone is enjoying the last weeks of summer. I know how depressing huh? Next week I believe our State Fair starts which will be fun but it means the following week school starts :-(

Here is my this week's DT design. It is from Soft Pencil and it is called Timmy's Toys which can be found on her Etsy site. I couldn't follow the Element they used for this week as it was digital papers and my printer does not print anything other than black very good LOL. This was colored with markers... Added papertrey ink buttons and paper, cardstock to this card also. Isn't it too cute...

Well I haven't made any cards yet this week. Yesterday I had to go and pick my son up from his dad's then it was night night for me. Today me and my daughter went shopping at an Outlet mall. I ended up buying 3 pairs of jeans. So tomorrow I am hoping since it is my last day off to make some cards. I have to my make DT card for this week for Soft Pencil and then I have some more of Mo's images that I bought the other night... This card was colored in a mix of pencils and markers. Parts are 3d... Hope everyone is having a fabulous week.

Awww isn't he too cute. This one is colored mostly with pencils and OMS. I just love her images. They are so detailed. This is also 3d. I bought the little pumpkin buttons from Archivers in a $1.99 bin at Archivers and ribbon is May Arts. Today is my Friday so last night of work. I am so happy. Have you ever seen the new Quickutz Epix Six? I bought myself one because Scrapyland had them for $69 and then there is a rebate for a free die if you turn it in before end of August. The reason I bought it is if you watch the video they have on Quickutz website they cut the long 12 inch strips from any brand. They will also cut Nesties or anything else my cuttlebug cuts so I figured it was time to upgrade... I had to buy the new Quickutz Ghost strip also it's so cute...

Here is another of the Whiff of Joy party animals. Arn't they too cute. I just love any stamp that has to do with animals and these are the perfect size. I am trying to stick to 5.25 square cards as I just ordered 1000 envelopes so I could get a better rate on them. I am hoping these will last me for a year. I normally make about 1000 + cards a year if you can believe that. Anyways this little guy was colored with Prisma pencils and OMS. I use chalk in all my cards when you see me distressing the edge to them. Ribbon is May Arts and paper was scrap from one of the DCWV pads. I was thinking to myself today dang summer is done and pretty soon I have to start buying for Christmas again. You know I think I am still paying on last Christmas' charge card bill. Depressing snow will be here too soon for my tastes. Anyways everyone have a fab week....

I was digging through my stamps this past week trying to find ones I haven't used in awhile to make cards with. This is one I found while digging. I believe it might be Pink Gem designs when she was going through Spiral Whispers cause it was in my Spiral Whispers Binder. Which is no longer in business but Pink Gems has since then opened up her own store. The link is on my links menu. This was colored with pencils and OMS. The paper is Stampin UP and ribbon is Paper trey along with the cardstock. I hope everyone is having a great week. This is my Friday night and no work tomorrow woot. I have some new stamps to use but ran out of Ez mount so I won't be using them this week....

Here is a High Hopes stamp. I was definately sad to hear that they weren't selling retail anymore but can definately understand since I placed an order in April and June and haven't heard of either as of yet. I am hoping I still get them since they were before August 1st. I won't be ordering anymore since the only places I can find are over double what the original prices were. How sad cause I love their stamps. But anyways card is colored with copics.. Have a great week.
