Bright as a Star Card # 10....

Adorable.. That about sums it up. Isn't he too cute? I have again used the fabulous new Bo-Bunny Christmas paper. I grab the cute sentiment over at TLC again. What can I say I'm addicted to TLC. Oh I almost forgot. What do you think of that new Spellbinder die: Lacey Circles. Isn't it great? Love It!!! 

I spent Sunday putting my smaller Spellbinder dies in CD cases and in a new rack. I need to find something to put the bigger dies in.. Do any of you have any suggestions? I can't seem to find any DVD boxes like the CD cases around here. What do you keep yours in? I want them out of there cases..

Hope your having a great day!! See you soon with another card. Thanks for stopping by!!

Teddie's Stocking Card # 9..

Isn't this an adorable image? That little bird is so cute.. I'm thinking of having a special Christmas card making class in December for one of my classes at MOT. I think maybe this will be one of the images I use.The paper is old Basic Gray which I'll need to change, but they have that fabulous new Christmas line to work with. The cute sentiment I again got from TLC. I've added some Crafty Fluff on the birds hat. Looks really cute..

I can't believe I've made it to card # 9 already I may have to start over when I'm done or maybe I should break some of my old Christmas images from last year I never did.... There's a thought I think I'll go dig around right now. I'm sure I bought some super cute ones!! See you soon with card # 10...

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog # 31....

It's time for another Sassy Cheryl Challenge. This week's challenge is to use "Your Favorite Sassy Image". Wow is it possible to have a favorite? I love them all.. Maybe that why my Sassy folder has so many in it and it's so hard to find the image I used when I'm ready to post it. Well I'm into Halloween cutie this week so I picked "Funky Scarecrows". Aren't they cute? I found that fabulous background paper in a 6 x6 Basic Grey paper pad. Glad I printed the image so big, I didn't need to add any more pattern paper.

I finally got around to adding all my cards to my albums over at PCP. Man that takes forever. I guess I shouldn't wait so long to add them. I just get be hide and it take me forever to catch up. I'm going to try and do better. Hope to see you over at the challenge... Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!!

Dearest Deer Card # 7.....

Well I've made it to card # 7. I'm feeling pretty good about my challenge so far. Glad I've made it so far with out moving on to something else. I'm not very good at bow making so I picked up a gadget called the Bow Easy. Wow it's great. After watching a video on how to use it. It was so easy. The instructions that came with it sucked.

More Halloween 2...

Happy Saturday everyone. We have sun today. That's always nice. But I bet if I went outside it's not that warm. I'll find out later when I head to the scrapbook store. I'm suppose to being doing a last minute class there today at 3 but no one had signed up yesterday when I called. I'm ok if no one does I can still go there and weigh and measure stuff for the new online store.

Thought I'd show you a couple more Halloween cards I've finished. I'll have to stamp some more image to color tonight. Or maybe find some new digi's online to print. The first one is a Magnolia stamp called So Spooky Tilda. Isn't she cute? You could use her for something other then Halloween.

This next one is a Hanglar & st Anglar image. She's a couple years old, but still adorable. I think I'll take my pile of Halloween cards to my local scrapbook store today and put them in my sale rack. My card pile is getting kind of big.

Have a great Saturday!! Thanks for stopping by..

Chic Shopping Card # 6....

Happy Friday everyone... I'm ready for the weekend... The alarm went off this morning and I hardly ever say this, but stupid thing. I really wanted to sleep in. But I can never go back to sleep after it's beeped.. So alas I drug out of bed. Tomorrow is a sleep in day. Yippie!!

Today card features Chic Shopping one of the new Stampavie Christmas stamps. I love the little dog holding her purse. This one has a little more coloring involved. So it took more then a minute to do. I have also used my new Spellbinder die Lacey Squares. Love it!! So does everyone else apparently because they are on back order at Spellbinders until Oct.22nd. That's like forever away. Glad I got mine first thing when they hit my local scrapbook store. The cute sentiment is again from TLC.

How about another Halloween card.. The cute image is from Magnolia: Witch Tilda & Pumpkins. I  think she is adorable. I need to stamp some more Halloween images and color them this weekend. I'm sure I have more laying around to choose from.

Have a fabulous day.. Maybe I'll see you again tomorrow with something new.. Thanks for stopping by!!

Star Gazing Card # 5...

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week. I wanted to share another Christmas card. This one I have used the new 2010 Snowflake Pendant Spellbinders die. Doesn't it look great. I only had to use one piece of fabulous pattern paper the snowflake did the rest for me. Love that. This was another simple coloring job. Not to much to color so it went super quick. But looks fabulous if I do say so myself. The sentiment is from TLC.

I've managed to finish four more of the Christmas card. Three feature new Spellbinder dies. Love those. So make sure and stop back by.

How about a Halloween card? I've used one of my fabulous Hanglar & Stanglar images. I adore these. Too bad they are so hard to get a hold of. The spider web border is a Martha Stewart punch. and the cute bats are an Ek Success border punch. I couldn't find a small bat punch so I just cut the border a part. I'm was trying to be frugal what ever that is.. :o)

Have a fabulous Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by...

Secretive Tilda...

Happy Wednesday everyone. We've made it half way though the week. Love it. I'm back with Secretive Tilda from the new Magnolia Bon Voyage collection. Isn't she adorable? I thought she'd make a perfect I forgot some thing card. I really like how her hair turned out. I haven't done too many images with black hair but I'm liking it. I added a little blue to it so it looks a lot better.

The papers some old Basic Gray and the sentiment is from TLC. I have stamped the flowers with a stamp from Stempelglede called Grunge Collection. Makes them look really cool it the middle. I forgot I had the stamp until I seen a couple of girls using them again.

Snowy Cuddles Card # 1.....

I picked up a bunch of new Stampavie Christmas stamps at my local scrapbook store last weekend. I'm determined to use them all. I love getting new stamps and always have good intentions of using them all. But then I find something new and I never finish. Not this time. I've challenged myself to use all thirteen of the new images.

So here is card # 1...

Isn't this a super cute image? I love it because I didn't have to color it a lot. Plus it is adorable. I could make up a bunch of these in no time at all. The paper is Basic Gray Wassail. I'm trying to use up some old paper. The sentiment is from the Holiday Sentiment Club over at TLC. So worth the $$. I get a new sentiment everyday. Plus paper and images sometimes.

Stay tuned for card #2...

Tilda in a Hurry....

This is how I feel some days. There is never enough time in the day.  I thought I'd play along with the Tickled Pink Monthly Challenge again. They have a fabulous 5 stamps of your choice prize. Who can resist that.

I have used one of my new Magnolia images called Tilda in a Hurry. I'm trying to be better about using the stamps I've bought. I love buying new stamps, but then never seem to have enough time to use them all. I found the cute sentiment over at TLC again. It says "I'm late, I'm late for a very important date". Tilda looks like she could use another couple of minutes to get to where she is going..

 Thanks for stopping by. Hope your having a great Friday!!

Happy Birthday Mom....

I wanted to use this cute Magnolia image so I started with the paper. I wanted something colorful and fun. Basic Gray it is. The paper is old. It's from the Urban Prairie collection, but I love the colors. The cute image is from the Wedding Collection: Tilda with Wedding Gifts.  I think the whole thing looks super cute. I love all the stuff going on.

The cute sentiment is from TLC. I love finding great sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope your having a Fabulous day!!

Out There...

Have you seen the new sketch over at the Friday Sketchers Challenge this week? It has a lot going on. You can use a bunch of paper. Love It!! The DT have created some wonderful examples for us also. The prize this week is 3 unmounted stamps of your choice from Motivet. Cool!! They have a couple of new back ground images and a couple of new Halloween images I'd like to get my hands on..

My image is by Mo Manning and it's called Out There. I've had it for a while. Super cute, don't know why I haven't colored it before now. The cute sentiment is from Elegant WordArt 2. I thought it went perfect with the image. I didn't add any frills as I wanted it to be a boy card. But it was hard to not break out the flowers..

Hope your having a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by!!
