Rain, Rain, go away...It's a dreary Saturday here. A bit chilly too! Perfect day to stay home & take a nap, read a book or craft. That's what I'm going to do! Yesterday was so much fun! I went on a stamping/shopping trip with 3 of my friends. We shopped all day about 3 hrs. away from our home. We bought lots of goodies and I can't wait to go "play"!

Today's card is another one I am making for an order. The stamp is a serendipity stamp. Isn't it a cute image? It's a simple little card but I hope she will like it. I also have some Christmas ones to do for her. I also used my Stampin Up Top note die. I love that one & use it all the time. Thanks for visiting today and Happy Crafting!!

Happy Tuesday! Finally I have been able to get to my room & create. I was having serious withdrawals! LOL!!! I attended a fundraiser on Friday night. It was a card making event with all the money going to St. Jude's children hospital. So I DID get to craft on Friday night. But to get some of my own stuff done, I have been too busy.
I have some cards that need to be done for an order. These 2 are the first ones I have completed. I think they turned out pretty cute. The order is for some dog holiday cards. I don't have any Halloween stamps so I created these with what I had. The dog is a Sissix die. The papers are Debbie Mumm. The clown hat & collar were cut freehand. The spiders are some stickers I had in my stash. I finished it off with a computer generated tag...Happy HOWLoween
I hope she likes them! Thanks for stopping today. See you soon!

It's Thursday and I am so sorry I haven't posted anything for the last week. I have been so busy! I have a few errands to run today then I plan on creating when I get home. I have been busy helping a friend pack up her kitchen. She sprained her ankle & her husband has already gone to Texas so she needed someone to help her. She is moving in less than 2 weeks and was feeling very overwhelmed. I'm just glad I was available to help her. So, I will try to post something later today or tomorrow for sure! Have a great day!

TGIF!!!! I am so happy it is Friday. Looking forward to the weekend. Nothing special planned but my daughter is supposed to come home from college for a "visit". I know the cat will be happy to have her home. This silly cat NEVER sleeps with anyone but last weekend when my daughter came home she stuck to her like glue. Every where she went the cat followed. It made my daughters day for sure!
Today's card is made with another digital stamp from You can also buy the rubber version but I like the instant gratification you get from digitals! I think she is so cute. The large pumpkin is also available as a download. I cut her out & popped her up for dimension. I added some brads for the center of the wheels and a little twine to give it that fall feel. I stamped autumn wishes on orange paper then punched it out in the shape of a leaf. Sanded the edges a little and I think it's done! Also added a teeny tiny brad for the buckle on her shoe. TTFN...

Hello~ Today has been a very frustrating day! I weighed in at Weight Watchers & I gained a little. Then everything went downhill from there...LOL! Hope tomorrow is better. I guess we all have those days don't we? I know I NEED to get to my craft room & create. That always helps!
This is a card I made the other day with a strawberry Maggie. She is from the summer collection. (So is the strawberry) The paper was in my scrap bin. I believe it is by Doodlebug designs. I added paper glaze to the strawberry to make it 3 dimensional. I don't know why it didn't show up in the picture but I also used some white rickrack to add a little extra something. The sentiment says I like you berry much. Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Hello. Hope you are having a great weekend full of BBQ's, family & fun! It's a little chilly here this morning but I hope it warms up. We are just hanging around the house today...nothing special.
Today's card features another one of my sweet little Maggie stamps. Isn't she so cute? I colored her then cut here out so I could sit her on the ice cream cone. I added a touch of glitter to the "strawberry" ice cream and some paper glaze to the strawberry on top to make it shine. I didn't have a flower to match so I colored a white one with my Copic markers. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the weekend. See ya soon!

Happy Wednesday everyone! I am having a great day. Went to Weight Watchers today & I lost another 3.6 lbs. with a total loss of 20lbs.!!! I am about 1/3 of the way to my goal. It's been an uphill battle but I am seeing some results. Just had to share! I also got to spend time with an old friend from school. He has pancreatic cancer but felt well enough to go out to lunch. Seeing some one go through a battle for their life is eye opening. Makes you realize what's important in life. I was glad to see him feeling a little better.
Today's card was made with one of the very first stamps I ever got. It is by Stampendous. I stamped it on red paper & cut it out. I created the second flower by doing the same thing but cutting off some of the petals so it was more of a bud. Did the same thing with the leaves. I liked using the colored card stock instead of coloring it all by hand. I used the Top note die from Sissix and then ran it through with an embossing folder to give it some texture. 3 red gemstones & some red grosgrain ribbon to finish it off.
Thanks for stopping & happy crafting!
