Sorry..2nd post today but I just had to share! Isn't she just adorable? My heart melts every time I look at her. I'm so glad I decided to keep her...she is such a joy!

Hi~ Happy Saturday! Well, my daughter has moved back to college. I'm gonna miss her but she is only an hour away. I was up all night worrying about her..various things...I have to learn that I am not in control so worrying is just a waste of time. I'm sure all you moms can relate though!
Today's picture is kind of dark..I apologize! It is a card I made with the Hero Arts peacock. I colored him with my twinkling H2os so he is very metallic looking IRL. I also used some very sparkly paper & gems to go with it. The punch I used is a Martha Stewart punch and I thought the pattern resembled the spots in a peacock's feather. We are going to be making this in one of my classes. To me it was just a FUN card to make. I hope the ladies will like it. Have a great day...See you soon! Until then...

Hi ~ Guess where I was?! New York City! We went on a bus tour for a day in the city. Rode the bus all night long. Spent the day there then rode the bus all night until we got home. Didn't get to do all we wanted but we were limited on time. I will for sure go back if my friends do. So much to see & do! Fun time...
Today's card was made with a new image from Squigglefly. You can see it here. It is called Floral Window. It was a little out of my comfort zone to work with but I like how it turned out. Reminds me of a fall tapestry. I backed it with shiny gold paper and added a few tiny pearls to the flowers.
I love how you can try different "styles" with digital stamps without the cost of buying an actual rubber stamp. Give it a try, you might just like it!
See you soon. I am enjoying the weather...perfect temps. here in Ohio!!! Great sleeping weather!

Hello ~ I finally had a minute to make a card this week! It is for the Squigglefly Challenge blog.
Check it out and see what my other team members have made. I will be gone tomorrow so I am posting this early. This image is called Fat Cat and is available at the Squigglefly store. Our challenge was to make a double pocket card with any Squigglefly image and we were supposed to use fall colors. I'm happy how this turned out. I love this image! I added some black beads for his eyes and a little clear glaze for his nose & claws. Isn't he a cutie...looking around like he is up to something! Thanks for popping by. See you soon!

Hello...Happy Wednesday! It's a beautiful day here today..not too hot. Great break from all those 90+ days!
I just love this new Stampin Up embossing folder. You can make a really quick card and it looks so elegant! This picture doesn't show how sparkly the butterfly sticker (by K & Co) is. I also used silver mirror card stock. Added a few pearls and some ribbon. (the ribbon is shiny too) Voila! Finished card in nothing flat. I know I will use this folder a lot! Well, have an awesome day and visit again soon won't you?!

Hello! I just got back from the torture chamber ( the dentist...ewww!)
Today's card is a digi from The Stamping Boutique. It is free here at Paper Craft Planet.
She was fun to color! I am keeping this post very computer is acting WONKY and it took me 45 mins. just to get this far so I am giving up for today....
Hope I can figure out the problem.

Happy Saturday to ya! I feel like I am running at full speed just to try and catch up to "life"! I thought these days of summer are supposed to be long & lazy!! They are just flying by!!!
Today's card is one we are going to do in an upcoming class. Simple but I think these hedgehogs are adorable!. We walk 2x a week at our local mall and the pet store has some real hedgehogs for sale. I have to say they look just like this Penny Black stamp. I'm not sure I would want one for a pet though...not very "cuddly". Plus they want 185.00 for one! But they are fun to stop & look at.
I hope you are having a great weekend. I hope to get to some of the stuff I need to this afternoon...I have class on Tuesday..YIKES!

Hi ! Sorry I wasn't around yesterday. I walked & did water exercise. When I was done my couch was calling my name! Then we went out for dinner. So didn't get much done.

Today's card is an new image called "Crying Halloween" from Squigglefly. I don't "do Halloween" but I thought this image was cute. I colored her with Copics. You can't see all the sparkle in the photo but her cape is sparkly from my clear glitter Spica pen. I added some small rhinestones to her crown & white puffy paint to look like fur on the cape. The pumpkin has clear glaze on it to make it look more dimensional. The inside of the card says..."GONE BAD". Definitely meltdown time. I remember those days...

See you soon! Thanks for stopping!

Howdy! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend. Mine went from one end of the spectrum to the other...funeral on Friday. Wedding on Saturday. The wedding was a dear friends daughter. It was so nice. Everyone looked all dolled up and it was nice to see some of my friends let their hair down!
Today's card picture is a little crooked but I don't have time to fix it. I have to get ready for church. I missed last week because my (mental but cute) dog...Not the puppy or Molly either...bit me in the face right at the top of my nose. Blood dripping everywhere so I didn't make it to church. It got infected but is now on the mend. Never a dull moment around here that's for sure!
This Tilda came in the Summer kit from Magnolia Sweden. Isn't she cute? You can order her at Diana's store now. The link is on the right hand side of my blog. She has a great selection.
Thanks for stopping today. Enjoy yourself!

Hello! How are you? Just wanted to share some of the cards I made with the owls from the other day. I think my favorite is the one with the 4 owls. They were so much fun to make! Well this is a quick post as I must get in the shower soon. Have a great day!

Hi & Happy Tuesday. I was playing with my owl punch yesterday. So much fun! The combinations are endless. Now I just need to make them into cards.
My eyes are ready to slam so I'm gonna take a quick nap. Have a great day!

Monday, Monday.... Isn't it great that every time you get up it's a new day with a clean slate? I am...bad weekend but it is now behind me and I am ready for a great day!

Today's card was a quick one. My crafting time has been a little short due to the new puppy. I'm not complaining...she is soooo adorable! But she is like having a baby around. She finds every little thing that hits the floor...buttons, brads, paper scraps. You name it she has found it. Stuff that I didn't even see.

Anyhow, back to the card...Stamp is by Hero Arts. I colored it with my Copics, added a little clear glaze & a little sparkle. I'm going to stamp "maybe a cupcake will help" on the inside. Some fun colored buttons added to the top and it's done!

One more card for you today! This image is from Squigglefly. It's called Whimsy Birds. I've had it on my desk for awhile but never finished it. I think it is a fun image. The sentiment at the top says "Happy Birdie to you!" Squigglefly has many many images to choose from. Some to fit every one's style. Have a great day and I will see you soon!
