KLM Designs....

Thought I pop in and share another one of my quick note cards I made with my new KLM Designs clear stamps. This one is called Sunflower Window Box it also comes with a cute saying (not the one I used). The scrap pile is getting a little smaller.... I colored this one with my water color pencils and blender pen. I love how quick that is.

Hope your all having a fabulous Wednesday... Only two more day until the weekend.... Thanks for stopping by...

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog # 9....

Welcome to another challenge week over at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog. This week's challenge is "White on White, but you can color your image". How fun is that? To tell you the truth I was a little stumped at first. I mean no colored paper. What will I put on there. So I thought hey you got like a million embossing folders right, so get them out and emboss the white paper to add some character.. What do you think?

I totally love the cute image. He was a freebie on the PCP Group. ADORABLE!! If you have time this week we'd love to see what you come up with and don't forget to check out the other DT creations because they ROCK!!

Squigglefly #46....

Ok it's time for this weeks challenge over at the Squigglefly Blog. This week's challenge it "Blues & Greens". Pretty simple.. Love that. The image I have used this time is by Cheryl Alger and it's called "May". Isn't she great. I love her boots. I had some of those when I was a kid but mine where just plan red. No cool dots on mine. I haven't done anything complicated this time. I'm still trying to use up some scrap from my huge pile. Quick & simple for me today...

Hope your having a fantastic day!! Thanks for stopping by!!!

KLM Designs....

Today I thought I'd make up a quick card and use up some of my left over scraps from Fridays class. The scrap pile is getting ridiculously big. This cute stamp is from KLM Design and is called "Crocus Window Box" it also come with a saying "Thank You". Isn't is adorable? I tried a new coloring technique using my water color pencils and blender pen my friend Carole showed me. Super easy!! I think I'll stamp up some more images and make up a few gift sets. 

Hope your having a fabulous Sunday... Thanks for stopping by!!

More Distressing....

I'm suppose to be teaching a distressing class next month at my local scrapbook store Memories of Time. So I've been practicing. For this one I have made my own flowers with the new Tim Holtz die and stamps. I've also made the background paper. What do you think?

It was actually pretty fun. I really like the flowers. You can make so many colors just by changing how hard you press down with your distressing tool thingy. So I didn't get it all over my self this time, but I was neat when I got done either.. :o)

What's on Your Workspace Wednesday?? I've seen this a few time's while blog hopping and Deb over at Crafty Card-I Higgins was sharing hers today so I thought I'd take a picture of my space today.

Here is my work counter where I assemble my cards. Not to bad most of that stuff usually sits there. I could pick up some..... It's mostly my new distressing stuff. Evidentially Tim Holtz no longer makes those awesome storage containers(to expensive) so I have to figure out what to do with my new ink pads. I really like the little box I have the others in

Then there is my cutter... look at that pile of scraps and punches I need to put away, but you know the minute one of those flower punches gets put in the drawer I'll just be pulling it right back out..

I'd love to see you space if you participated to leave me a comment so I can go visit..

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog # 8....

This week over at the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog we have a sketch for you to try. Doesn't it look fun!!

On my card this week I have used "A Boy and His Pulltoy". He looks like he thinking about someone...

As you can see I'm not a very good sketch follower this week. I couldn't do the whole image hanging off the top of the card thing. How would it fit in an envelope? Ok I could have made the card shorter... Oh well I know you'd cards will be perfect.

Fabulous Friday....

Man I thought Friday was never going to get here. This week has taken forever!! I'm ready for the weekend. I've managed to do something to my back so coloring and even sitting in my chair to blog  hop is a pain. And driving the car wow. Turning corners is not fun at all. So forgive me for not having much to share this week. But I just haven't been able to do it. I did manage to make this one up last night lucky for  me I already had it colored.

This is another one of my new Stampavie stamps I picked up over at 7 Kids College Fund. Love shopping there. Tab has lots of wonderful stuff. I spend a little bit to much time there I'm sure...Any ways she's called "Looking Chic". Head over and check her out and all the other cuties...

Hope your all having a great Friday!! Thanks for stopping by... :o)

Well if you go HERE at Splitcoast Stampers there is a fabulous tutorial. They have a bunch of wonderful tutorial's if you'd like to try something new. I've never done a flap card...

What do you think of this adorable image? I think it really cute. I don't know how Cheryl Alger comes up with so many new creations. She's awesome!! It's called "April Showers". Kind of fitting where I live it's been pouring down rain for a week. I'm ready for SUMMER!!! I'm tired of rain. YUCK!! Anyways good luck with you Flap Card. I can't wait to see what you come up with. Head over and check out the other DT Creations they are fabulous....

What do you think of my flowers? Those are a new punch I picked up at my local scrapbook store Memories of Time on Saturday. It's from EK Success and it's called Flowers & Leaves #54-30035. The punch included two flowers, the center and the leaf. I thought that was super cool. You have everything you need all in one. Best of all I just used up scraps to make the flowers. I won't tell you all of the other fabulous stuff I got. What can I say I was there all day for make-n-take day and stuff just fell into my basket. Plus Michelle was having a sale... :o)

Speaking of make-n-takes I forgot to show you the card I made up for my station. We made this adorable kitty card. Everyone got to use the Copics and the new Paw Print Border punch by EK Success. Plus the two adorable stamps by Inky Antics called Peek Over & Purr-fect Day. I had a fabulous time. I can't believe all the people who came by. It was totally fun!!

Happy 11th Aniversary...

Today is my 11th Anniversary.. Wow!! And I'm going to go play at my local scrapbook store all day doing Make-N-Takes. Super fun. I'll be doing something with my honey tonight. I don't know what yet, but we'll leave the house at least..

My card for today has nothing to do with the anniversary. I just love this cute Penny Black stamp. Isn't she adorable? I have used the new Basic Grey Paper - Kioshi. I love it, it's so soft and pretty. This may be an upcoming class at my local scrapbook store I haven't decided yet. We'll see.

Hope your all having a fabulous weekend and Happy Easter if I don't make it back tomorrow.. I'm off to pack for make n takes..I'll do the card recipe later...
