Announcement and a Card

Today I have to share with you. I was invited to be on the KLM Digi Stamps. If you haven't been to their site yet please do. They have got the cutest clown stamps I think I've ever seen just the sweetest. Also they don't just do digital stamps anymore they also do a high quality clear stamps. I believe they have like 6 sets they just released recently including those clowns :-) . Anyways I am going to be on their DT for June - September. I can hardly wait to start making stuff for them her designs are adorable.

Today is my Friday it has a been a long long week. I am so needing my 1 day off LOL. What will I do you ask? Make cards hehe... I enjoy relaxing and making cards and listening to my books. Right now I am listening to House of Night: Marked by PC Cast. Not sure what I think about it yet. It's bizarre. I just got done listening to Wicked Lovely which I loved it was about fairies. Anyways here is a card I made last week with Whimsie Doodles digital stamps. I just love this set there was a couple dogs and cats and some cute sayings. The cardstock is Papertreys and I colored him with markers and pencils. Ok That is enough of my jabbering for one day. Hope everyone has a great week...

Here is one of the cards I made yesterday. The image is from Whimsy stamps and the designer is Crissy Armstrong. The saying is also available from Whimsy stamps and designer is Raindrop Echo Designs.I added lacquer to the dots on the shell and roses in place of the flowers on the stamp. I thought it turned out cute... Have a great evening.

Meljens Designs

Here is another image I used from Meljen's Designs isn't it too cute. I also did a boy one. I added the congratulations to it with help of Cheryl aka Mochamom now I am having fun adding little sayings to my digital images. I also bought some tonight I am going to make this weekend from Echo Raindrop Designs which I got at WhimsyStamps she is one of the designers. If you need sayins for your digital images she has some great one. I got some cute digital images to make this weekend too from Karen's Doodles and Bugaboo which I can't wait to use. I think you will like them they are Get Well ones and then some funny ones from Bugaboo. As for this card you see posted I colored it with copics and the cardstock is Nitwit Digital papers printed on Bazzill, Ribbon is MayArts Swiss dots. I love this digital paper I requested that she make some more baby ones cause I could only find 1 or 2 that would actually work for a baby. I also requested some "I'm Sorry" sayings from Echo Raindrop Designs LOL. I am all kinds of needy today. Anyways I suppose I better get back to work haha.... Have a fabulous week.

Happy BIrthday Doggy

Wow days go by just way too fast. I need an at home job LOL. As if you did not know tonight is my Monday uck and I have to go to work in 13 hours and counting. I need more hours in a day too. Not sure why but I slept in till 830 this morning so just enjoying my first up of coffee which I don't drink as much as I use to and limit myself to a cup or two. I have a single cup brewer from Keirag or whatever the name is. Love it. Now I can have all my flavored coffees by the cup and they are all mine. Hubby hates flavored coffee lol

So anyways onto my card I posted he is a free image from Tiddly Winks from joining her Paper Craft Planet group which by clicking on the link you can join and get free images too LOL. She also create stamps for Stampin Bella. So this little doggy is colored in Pencils and Markers see that cool Happy Birthday on the side. Cheryl aka Mochamama from God and I on the Railroad Tracks explained and taught me how to merge the two images and put it on there. I can fix computers but when it comes to the crafty computer side forget it. So quite a few of the cards I did the past two days I have handy little sayings on them haha... Thanks again Cheryl - I am bad student and normally have to ask a million times the same thing lol. So if you have never been to Cheryl's blog go and check it out her cards are gorgeous. Oh not sure how I almost forgot too she introduced me to digital papers from NitWit Collections and OMG I am in love. You have to check them out they have the coolest papers ever. I bought like 6 collections from them over the past 2 days and sent her my wish list for some more papers I'd like to see like baby papers which are hard to find. I was thinking that they would be super expensive to print so I am doing a test now. Single papers here are .99c up to 1.99 for heavy weight. I put mine on Bazzill which I pay .20c a sheet for. So far I have printed out 10 sheets and I will keep track how many I get out of my ink cartridges. I am going to ask hubby for a laser printer I think for Christmas. As you can see they are gorgeous. The doggy papers are 2 out of one of the collections I bought this weekend just love it... Button is from Dress it up which I buy them at Archivers and ribbon I had in my stash I can't remember where I bought it from. It is sold already I normally put stuff in my Etsy store on Friday's or Saturday mornings. I hope everyone has a fabulous sunny weekend... Talk to you soon.

Graduation Card

Wow I got like 10 cards made in the last two days which is alot for me lately. This adorable image is from Karens Doodles her images are on a blog so you kind of have to week through them. I bought several tonight and there are several more I would like to get when I get some more money. I updated the closeup of the Brad that I made with my Itopper. I just love that tool what a great investment. You can make your own matching brads out of paper, felt, fabric or whatever else you can think of and it is very easy to use. I got my from Oh my crafts cause they have bulk packages for cheap of the brad bases. Image is colored with pencils and markers.

I just got done listing all my past 2 days cards on Etsy geesh does that take alot of time to do with editing pictures and posting them all. I get lazy in the descriptions as I go along LOL. Anyways hope everyone is having a great week and hope you have a fabulous weekend.

Penny Johnson

Another great stamp by Stampavie from Artist Penny Johnson. Hmmm are they called Artists or Designers when they create stamps? Anyways you can see all her new ones by going to Stampavies site which I linked. I get mine from 7KidsCollegeFund cause I normally preorder months in advance because I want to make sure I get them. I tell you working nights I spend more money then I can make cause when I get bored at work I try to figure out what my next purchase will be hahah... Maybe I better just stay home huh. Anyways this little cutie was colored with copics and pencils as with all my other cards. I like copics for somethings and pencils for other things. And see my fancy brads I got a Itopper not too long ago to make my own matching brads cause them things are spendy... With an Itopper you just use your scrap paper and make them. I got my Itopper at Oh My Crafts which I could buy the Brad bases in bulk so I have enough to last me till I die now. Ok I gotta go get some things done around the house because I have work in a few hours. Someone messed the clock up in the bedroom and I only slept from 10am - 230pm today cause the clock said it was 430pm. Think someone was trying to steal my sleep time or what. LOL... Have a great Sunday.

Bunny day...

Here is a new to me stamp but it is an older stamp from Penny Black. I think it is sooo cute. Did you know that you can get retired PB stamps from Dick at and the customer service is spectacular. I colored this one with colored pencils and markers I think it turned out cute. Unfortunately though I couldnt' see anything to make this 3d so it is flat but adorable. The bunnies make me smile... Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend. Tonight is my Monday night so I am sitting here at work. Fun huh... But the good news is that I took my Friday off which is Thursday haha... I am gonna get some cards made for sure this week. I have some new Pure Innocence stamps coming from MFT's but they should be here within the next couple of days.

Meljen's Designs

I know I have been horrible about posting lately life is getting away with me. With Bailey being sick and working and everything else I just haven't even had the time to get any cards made lately. Here is one I made last week but didn't get a chance to post it. Is from a new Artist well maybe not new but new to me. As the title said the name is Meljen's Designs. I found her on etsy and now she has her own website you can buy from. She has the cutest designs. I love cute and this is definately cute. I was just at her website and she has a new Fairy/Dragon release that is adorable. I colored this little cutie with copics. The flowers are from Wild Orchids aren't they gorgeous too. I hope everyone is having fabulous weather. We in Minnesota have had excellent weather for this time of the year. And Bailey is doing good she is back to her old self, it is just like a miracle that she recovered so well and is walking fine. Still not sure what the problem was with her I don't think she has that Vestibular anymore cause she wouldn't have been able to walk so good so soon. Maybe a doggy stroke? It is a mystery I am just glad she is doing well... Have a great evening and hopefully will post again tomorrow...
