Here is a card I made from a new Digital stamp artist named Kristen Powers. She has an Etsy store where she sells her images at called Kristen Powers Ink. They are very cute and whimsical. My favorite are the owls and the birds. This card I did is from her image called Bird on a Whim which is in her shop right now. This one I chose to color with copics but it would be cute however you did it. I was also thinking I may print one out with patterned paper. This is really easy first I print one out on cardstock or paper and then I cut out the paper I want and tack it on to the first printed paper and then reprint it. This way you know exactly where your printer is going to print. Also as you can see I made this 3d and added some glitter to make it shiny. And if you love the color of that cardstock it is the new color from Papertrey ink this month Hawaiian Blue. For those wondering about Bailey she had a couple seizures yesterday after we had given her a couple doses of dramamine prescribed by the Dr. We discontinued that right away and babied her all day so she did not over due it more. Today is doing alot better. It is slow moving and I know she is still a bit dizzy but has been walking about the house and drinking and eating. I hope she keeps improving. Anyways If you haven't been to Kristen's store please go and check it out. She is new to the stamping community and would like to get her name known...

Hi I thought I would post another card I made last week real quick. Another Squigglefly digital image. Colored with copics. As you may have read in my previous post my Mini Schnauzer is pretty sick. We brought her to the vet yesterday they think she may have Canine Vestibular syndrome. Which they just upped her steroids she is on already for her blood problems and then told us to give her dramamine. We thought she was doing better today as she was up walking around a bit. Not sure if it was because of the dramamine or just the whole issue but her legs stiffened up and my husband thinks she had a couple seizures. We called the vet again but guess what today was her day off. My bailey is just like another kid to me and my husband brought it up that at some point we may have to make a decision to decide what is best for her. How the heck do you make a decision like that and who do you make it for. I just love her so much but don't want to see her in pain. Poor thing anyways will keep you updated. We are not giving her anymore dramamine in case that is what caused the seizures as it is the only thing different we have done as she already was taking the predisone its just a regular amount like we use to have her on in the beginning of her blood ammunities. They checked yesterday and her blood work came in fine. If you go on youtube and type in Canine Vestibular syndrome they have videos out there what dogs look like on it - it is definitely heartbreaking... Anyways have a great evening until later...

As you see in the title I got this little cutie from DRS Designs. Isn't it just too dang cute. I just love it. The Paper I think is Basic grey but not positive as it was in my stash. Ribbon and Cardstock is Papertrey ink. Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far. My Monday went ok. My poor doggy has been sick and doesn't want to move poor thing. She's been on steroids for the past year with a sort of anemia and everytime we need to adjust her medicine she gets sick and doesn't eat. She is eating now so we just think it is doggy flu or something. Anyways.. Have a great evening.

I got my order from MFT the other day which were these adorable Pure Innocence stamps I think they are so adorable. I really couldn't find anyway to make 3d but still think they are adorable. I hope everyone has a great week and enjoys the weather we have been having...
I was going to post a card today and thought I would post this instead. I ordered a few weeks ago some beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. This is my 2nd order I have also ordered from them before. It is owned by a guy and his wife and they sell the most beautiful flowers. For that that love Prima these are 100x better and cheaper. My order anyways took a little vacation to The Netherlands can you imagine the nerve and not bringing me along LOL. But the owner figured it out and sent me an email apologizing a million times. Then he contacted the person he sent them to and she went out of her way also to send them to me. Huge thanks to Sylvia for that. Anyways I then in the meantime ordered another order which I know I am hooked on these flowers but see the individual pack I posted the picture of those are Curly roses and I was waiting for them to come in but they were being slow coming in stock anyways he sent those priority to me also. I received them today and it was just like Christmas see my pictures. Then see the plastic bag on the flap in the last picture on the left hand side well those were free to me just because the first ones were given a vacation. The poor owner felt so bad and apologized so many time I felt bad... Anyways if you need flowers definitely check them out at Wild Orchid Crafts - customer service goes a long ways in my book. I am already making my next list haha... Will post a card later tonight.

Here is another one of my new PB stamps. I just love the hedgies. I also have several more hedgies to show you hopefully this week. I got a large order for some cards so hopefully I can incorporate them into one of them. Also as you know I opened up my Etsy store finally which I have only had it since Etsy opened and never used it. Unfortunately everything sold the first hour so it is empty but hopefully can restock it this week. I hope everyone is had a great weekend.

I made a couple cards today and this was one of them. I ended up getting 5 or 6 of the new stamps which are absolutely adorable. This one is colored with Copics. I like this image I wish there was more of them. As you know I have taken a couple months off from making cards. I will not be selling them on Ebay anymore but I opened an Etsy store, the link is on the right which everything I put today in there is sold already but I will be adding more every week and everything I normally post on here will be in there within a day or two. Ebay has went crazy with their prices and its only for a 7 days listing vs the 4 months I think Etsy said. I hope everyone is having a great weekend and enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having.

Aren't they guys way too sweet? They are from Motivet as the title says. I just love their stamps too. There are just so many great stamps and company's out there I think I need a 2nd job just to be able to buy them. This one was colored with pencils. I found this paper in my stash I like it there was no name on it who made it and I have no more of it haha... It has been so nice here this week snow is melting fast. I can't wait till it is gone all together even my doggies are going stir crazy cause we normally leave the sliding door open for them in the summertime and they come in and out as they please since we have a fenced in back yard. Keeps them happy. And when they are happy they are not bugging me hahah... Well I am heading down to the scraproom today to use my new stamps I got from Nicola at Bunny Zoe and also my new PB stamps... can't wait. Have a fantastic day !!!!

I hope everyone else is having as great as weather as we have been having. It has been in the 40's so the snow is finally starting to go away. I have cabin fever and I need winter to be gone and I need to be outside. I feel stir crazy. Any ways here is a card I made with I believe the company is called Lili of the Valley. They are adorable images. They are over in the UK I believe. The border is a MS punch. Colored this with a mixture of pencils and my copics. Hope everyone has a great week I am off to get my hair trimmed. Updated original post to include link I found the correct name of stamp company and link for it.

Isn't this little gal too dang cute. I just love Mo's images. She is colored with pencils. I added flowers from Wild Orchid and the lattice is a MS punch. I just punched both sides of it. Hope everyone is having a fabulous week. I joined Julie's Isagenix group this is going on my 3rd week and already lost 6.5 lbs. so far. It is a very easy program if anyone has a few extra lbs to shed but kind of expensive but if you consider the price of food I guess it isn't too bad. Anyways just thought I would throw my current results in LOL. Have a great week...
