Today I have a sympathy card I made. I kept it simple and understated. I hope you like it.
I used some flowers I found at Joann Fabrics, some simple ribon and a little charm that says "The Lord be with you" on it. The background paper is from the DCWV Mariposa stack, I just LOVE that paper pack!!!
Thanks for looking!!!

PS: I'm sorry about the picture not being that great, I must have taken 10 pictures of this card in different lights and I just couldn't get it to look right.

Cake is good

Good afternoon everyone and let me just say, thanks for sticking with me since it's been a while since I've posted. Between moving and losing my mojo, it hasn't been a good last few months. But I am slowly getting things back in order and getting my creativity here's my project for today.

I made a cute little card to give for a birthday (I don't know who's yet, but we can always use birthday cards). My image for this card is from the Stamping Boutique and I knew I had to have it as soon as I saw it, she is just soooo cute!!! I cut the background with my top note die from SU and used DCWV Mariposa paper (I just LOVE this paper pack). I then added a big yellow flower that I bought at Michaels (to bring out the color of the cake). I'm not sure yet if I am going to add a bow or not, so let me know what your thoughts about that are.

Well I hope you enjoy the card and are having a great weekend with friends and family. Thanks for looking!!!

Christmas Mice

Yah I'm finally back for a new post!!! I have been so busy it isn't even funny, but I will be wrapping up my seasonal job in the next week or so and then the packing and moving begins.
Anyway, on to the project. Today I have a cute little treat that I made for our company Christmas party. They are cute little mice made from chocolate dipped cherries, kisses, slivered almonds and some icing for the eyes. My husband and I made these together and it was a lot of fun, not to mention that you get lots of chocolate on your fingers and there are always some leftover cherries. haha.
Well, I hope you enjoy my little bit of inspiration today. Have a great Thursday and a wonderful Christmas if I don't make it back by then.

Hello everyone. First I would like to appologize for my being MIA for the last month or so. My computer has been in the shop and they continue to send the wrong part for it. I am crossing my fingers that it will be fixed by the end of the weekend, but I would have thought I would have been fixed weeks ago. That computer holds all of the pictures of all of my work so I haven't been able to share anything with you.
On other news, Kevin and I finally tied the knot!!! We were married on November 30 and look forward to taking a honeymoon someday when we have time. haha. We will be moving to aother town about 45 minutes away sometime between now and January 31, so that will hinder my sharing as well.
I want all of my followers and the occassional visters to know that I appreciate each and every one of you and am greatful for your sticking with me in this very busy time. I hope to be back full time soon, but until then, have a great holiday with your family and remember to take time to enjoy the blessings that you have been given!!

Too cute

Hi everyone, sorry it has been so long since I have updated my blog. I have started a new seasonal job to help cover Christmas and they have been giving me a ton of hours. Anyway, on to the card. haha

Today I have for you a card that I made for my nephews 2nd birthday. I thought this image by Mo's Digital Pencil was just perfect since this little guy looks like he's about that age and trying to figure the world out all on his own. I colored with Copics (of course), distressed the edges and put a big Happy Birthday in the middle.

Well, thanks for looking, I hope you like it!!!

New Copic Buzz Challenge

Good morning all, how are you today? Today I have a card that I made for the Copic Buzz Challenge on PCP and this week the awesome Victoria Case is our sponsor. She has provided a free image for you to color and she is a cutie!!!
On my card I colored her with spring colors (I'm in denial that winter is right around the corner) and even cut out a cute little butterfly to put in the lower right corner. The paper is from DCWV from a collection called "garden party" of course. I used Prima flowers and a Martha Stewart butterfly punch as my accents!!! Please come on over, join our group and take part in our challenge!! I can't wait to see what you creat!!

Little kisses

Hello everyone, how are you today? I am good today!! I just got a great little surprise, my neighbor rang the bell and brought over some homemade, hot out of the oven, blueberry crisp. YUMMO. We have the best neighbors, they are always bringing us goodies (I think that's how they stay so thin). They are just the sweetest retired couple ever!!

Anyway, on to the other fun stuff!! Today I have a card that features an image by Mo's digital pencil. This image is just sooooo cute!!! I love all of the details in it and it was so fun to color!! I made a card for this image for the Copic Buzz challenge this week. This week Jana is asking us to use your Copics to color your embellishments with. I have the airbrush system (just like the starter kit) and have only used it a handfull of times, but I have to say I do love it and look forward to getting an air compressor to hook it up to!! Besides all of that, I added stickles to the girls coat and white flocking to both coats. I also added Polor White Flowersoft for the snow at their feet (and a little on the back of her coat). The big snowflakes I got at Hobby Lobby in their Christmas department (Yes, they have Christmas stuff out already) and put dew drops in the centers after airbrushing them. The dp is from Alpine Frost collection by SEI (I just love their paper).

Thanks for stopping everyone!! Now go get crafty!!!

Lookin' for clues

Today I have a card for you that has been floating around in my head ever since I got this image from Mo's Digital Pencil. She was giving this image away as a freebie because there have been some companies selling her images as their own. How horrible is that? You can find Mo's images here, so make sure you are buying them right from her and not someone else trying to scam!!!

Ok, on to the card!! Like I said, this card has been floating around in my head. This image can be used in so many different ways, but this is the first that popped into my head. I colored the image with Copics, used Prima flowers, misc cardstock from my stash and printed the sentiment out on my computer (as it is something I thought of for this card). I sure hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it!!!

Thanks again for stopping by my corner of the world and taking a look. I hope you all have a great weekend!!

Cupcake box

Hello everyone I hope you are all having a great day and have been getting creative in my absence. I have been away dealing with some family things, but am now getting my mojo back!!

Today I have a cupcake box for you. Yes, it's Christmas themed, but hey, some of us have to get a headstart or we will end up way behind!! It is October 1st and as most are thinking Halloween, I have been trying to get into the Christmas spirit (a little hard when the leaves still haven't turned color) This box is the first thing I made when I got my new Scor-pal!! Let me tell you, I just love this thing. It took me a while to order one, as I thought I could do just as good a job with my stylus and trimmer, but I tell you, I don't know how I ever lived without this thing. I totally whipped this box out in about 1/2 hour and that was while I was watching tv. I used Basic Grey Christmas paper called "Figgy Pudding" and some ribbon I got at Michaels. For the window I used my clear cardstock from PTI (another must have).
Well, I hope you enjoy and get inspired to make your own. Drop me a line if you do so I can see what you have created!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
