Thought I better let you know I am not still mad!

I don't have anything to post today but I got my issues fixed and now have my beloved pencil back to edit with! Seems I didn't have my browser set to accept 3rd party cookies! Did that and now it is all ok again.
I found this site that looks to be quite helpful thought I'd share it if you'd like to have a boo. Aside from the fact that I am still washing walls. I am pretty dam sure that I have walls that I didn't have before! hahaha. Oh crap! Anyways...............nearing the end of it all. Just in time to start over again. Pffffft! Ok I am not that much of a fanatic!
Might be back with something tomorrow. My snowbird girlfriend just got back from Yuma so we are going to get together and hopefully get something accomplished, although you never quite know with us!!!! We laugh an awful lot! Good for the soul!

Hope y'all are having a spectacular day!

OK so now I am ticked off!

I just found out that I have some wonderful comments on here and I tried to respond to them but to no avail. Didn't show up. Had this problem when I was on a blog hop the other day too. Anyways. I just loved reading all of your comments! Really makes me want to get busy and make some more cards to put up!!!! Well not that I am looking for praise or something! Just encouraged to do more! You know what I mean! So thank you very much girls!!!!
Hope today finds you in a nice warm and sunny place!

A Happy Mother's Day card

Another fun card to make! This one I made just cause I wanted to make a mother's day card and I know a real nice mother. Not mine I don't have one, well I did at one time. hahaha Anyways. My s.i.l.'s mom is such a nice lady and I know she loves handmade things so it was fun to make too. Papers are from Michael's. Spellbinder's swirl die. Lacey ribbon from Walmart. McGill Punch for the leaves. And various flower punches. And there you have the extent of my card making lately. I have colored a few more images but haven't made them into cards yet. Been busy cleaning and other stuff.

Card for my fav s.i.l.


Another Belle's and Whistles Stamp. This card was for my sister in law for her birthday. The b/g paper was some I got from Michael's awhile ago and worked in just perfectly with this stamp. Look at my lovely bow all smooshed flat. Oh dear! A good reason for taking pictures instead of scanning I guess huh? This was just a real fun card to make. And it never hurts to make a card for someone that you really like too!

Featuring a Belle's and Whistle's Stamp

Hmmmm where to start! So many things to make up this card. The stamp is one from Belle's and Whistle's. Coloured with copics. Highlighted here and there with Spica pens. Cut out with a Spellbinders die cut.  The b/g paper and the brads are American Crafts. The scallopy punch is a Fiskars one.The butterfly is one I found along the way.  All mounted on Bazzil paper.I think that about covers it. Other than to say that it is a card for a very special lady!

Card that doesn't have a home yet!!!!!


Just love this little Changito! And isn't the saying just the truth of it all!!! LOL Colored with copics.  Martha Stewart Punch for the strip of green. Various and sundry papers etc.....

Impression Obsession

This was the June 2009 STOM from our local stamp store, Creative Accents. This was a fun card to make. Notice the little cupcakes down in the bottom of the glass! lol

Love this set!

This is an older set by The Angel Company. Was right into these for awhile. They were so much fun to do. I think there was a set of 3 or 4 different "ladies". I was still using the Prismacolors blending with a stomp and gamasol. The punch is a Stampin Up one. Thought this might give you a smile!

Card for a friend

Isn't Fabby just the epitome of energy! This stamp is made by Stamping Bellas. The saying I had a friend make for me. This was the beginning of my copic coloring I believe. Used a Cuttlebug folder called Swiss dots. Quickutz die for the swirly at the top. Ribbon some generic from somewhere!!!!

Followers woohoo!

First time I have been here for a few days. Goodness. I have followers! Oh no pressure now! LOL I do have a couple of other cards that I am about ready to upload. I wanted to get my new Multifunction printer hooked up so I can scan it and maybe it won't be blue anymore. I did take a picture of the last card I uploaded but I prefer using a scanner, if it works properly! So I have been trying to run out my printer out of ink. So I printed off all of Mojo's Sketches plus a couple of card examples for each one. And still it's got ink!!!!
Anyway's thanks for taking a boo at my cards! See you in a day or two.

Journey's first dance recital

Well what fun we had tonight! My grandaughter had her first dance recital. So I made her this card. The image is one from She has drawn a bunch of these digital stamps and is just giving them away. There are some real cuties there!!!! I printed a background that I found online but searching images via google for sky and stars, cause you see she is our little star today. Oh hence the star up in the top left corner. Image is colored with copics. Cut out with Nestabilites. The border is Martha Stewart Punch laid over a piece of ribbon that came wrapped around a blanket that I purchased! Thrifty or what eh???? LOL
Journey's other grammie and grandpa were there too and of course her mom and dad. We all gave her a little spray of flowers with the usual red rose for a job well done! She just loved it! So much fun!
