I miss sassy!

I made this card for my friend Ilene (AKA Sassy)who I have not seen for awhile! She has had work & medical issues & me with my work schedule.....grrrrr. just no time at all to get together & be crafty!!!!
So I sent her this card & I hope she gets it today!! I used this weeks sketch from CPS...it was perfect for my cute Bella image. All the DP are from goodies that I picked up at the CK convention & the ribbon is from Michaels. Oh...& the little "Sassy" stamp I also got at the convention. What a find!!! Well...as I type this I am on my lunch hour so I best be getting back to work!! enjoy you day!!!!!

Happy Birthday Julie

This is for one of the girls I work with who is having a Birthday this week. Even though this card has tons of paper ( it is so heavy) is seems to be missing something. just not sure what. Oh well its done. I actually had time to do a few cards today. So hope to be posting again in a few days. I will be posting a card on the Clear Artistic Stamps blogg Monday AM if you have time to check it out.
For this card all the paper is from SU. The stamp is from Hanna Stamps & the Happy Birthday stamp is from Clear Artistic Stamps. I tried really hard to not to use another brown bow....but just could not help myself :)
Well that is it for now as I have some blogg hopping to do! hope you all have a fabulous Halloween week!! thanks for the visit!!!!

long time no post!

So sorry to be gone so long! Work has just been taking all my time lately! Then on Sundays, now that it is football season...I make a big brunch, clean up that mess then cook a big dinner for whoever shows up for all the football games. Not that I am complaining!!! I love it that the kids are over most Sundays now!! For the record...I hate football!! LOL!!!
I made this little set for my little nephew. He is only 4 & wants nothing to do with the scary part of Halloween. SO I thought this would be OK. He, like most kids, loves getting mail. The little envelope pouch is so quick & easy! no measuring, & no cutting!!! It is so easy to make things for the little ones...they love everything!!! specially if it includes candy!! If anyone is interested in the pouch...go here for a quick tutorial!
That's it for today! Better busy...I have about 4 days worth of stuff to get done in my one day off this week!!! Thanks for the visit!!!!

extra large card

Happy hump day! and a lucky day off for me!! This is a really big card...I usually make much smaller ones. I have had this stamp for a long time but not had a chance to use it :( I just thing he is so darn cute. He is colored with prisma color markers & his face is all sparkles with a clear Spica pen... ( if you double click on the picture you can really see the sparkle!)love those pens! used my oval nesties & stampin up paper. Those cute little stars I got at the scrapbook convention...they just poke in & then flattened on the back. I have had fun already today visiting many, many blogs & enjoying a beautiful cool morning. Now off the knock off some stuff on my to-do list! have a great day! and as always....thanks for stopping by!!!!

Beautiful baby girl

I am not much of a scrapbooker...but I did make this little photo holder for my niece Melissa. I think it turned out super cute! I printed the photos that she E-mailed me in Black & white on water color paper & then added a bit of color with my SU chalks. Melissa actually took the cute photos herself.

I have made similar photo projects using flip-flops instead of the little baby shoes. This is the third one of the little baby ones I have made.

I also embellished these little onesies with iron-on transfers that I printed off my computer using regular old clip art. If I remember correctly you can never have enough of these :)

And last but not least I decorated this little box for baby Evie to put everything in along with a gift card to target for diapers!

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!!! we are finally a little cooler here today!!! Woot Woot!! only in the 80's. thanks for stopping by!!!

simple Halloween

As I was making cards today I realized I really missed creating the clean & very simple ones. So that is what I did for the rest of my day! I made 6 cards today 5 are very basic & simple...no frills or fancy stuff! This one is from a stamp set I got at a tiny little local stamp store.....the set is from Inkadinkado. Some really fun flourishy stamps in the set. You can not see it in the photo but the moon & image are a bit sparkly...I discovered these new pens"atyou spica" the gal at the store say they actually have tiny shards of glass that make them sparkle! I love them. Just gives a very suttle shine. The paper is from SU & the little corner bling I got in the dollar bin at Michaels. I will post the others later or tomorrow. I have a HUGE mess to clean up now!!
Thanks for the visit!!!

Happy card making day!!!!

This card I made using a sketch at Taylored Expressions. If it looks a bit off center...that is the way it is supposed to look...Hard for me as I kept looking at it weird...tee hee hee!!All of the paper is from SU. I got some beautiful new glitters from the Martha Stewart line. The stamp set is from Hero Arts.

I hope you all get to enjoy some of the cool stuff that is on some of the many many bloggs celebrating today!
