Hello! Long time no see! I am still not feeling my best but I did get to create a little! These cards were made with my Cricut Imagine. Still trying to learn all that it can do but so far I am enjoying it. I am still going to keep my Expression as it is my favorite and I can take it with me if I want. The Imagine is way too heavy & if you move it you have to recalibrate it.

Isn't this bear so cute? It is from a new designer on Squigglefly. His name is Winanto Nugroho.There are a few other bears so be sure to check it out. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and I hope to see you again soon...fingers crossed!

Hello! I can't believe a week has gone by. I have not been "with the program" lately! I feel like I am a day late & a dollar short. I hope to get back into the swing of things soon. I have some health issues that have kept me from crafting a lot this past week.
Isn't this little boy image from Squigglefly cute?He is called indian-ajo. Reminds me of my son pretending to be a super hero. He thought he could fly! Thank goodness he didn't hurt himself too badly. He did fall off the top of a chair and bang his mouth on a marble windowsill. Had to go to the ER but he healed up nicely...Boys!!!
The snowman card image is from Whipper Snapper. He has some glitter on the snow but it doesn't show up in the photo. I added some clear glaze to his nose & buttons. Finished it off with a sequin snowflake and a rhinestone. Thanks for coming by today. I hope (fingers crossed) I can get more done this week!
Until then...

Monday,monday... Hello! It's gonna be another great stamping day. It's rainy & gloomy here today.
This card was made for the squigglefly challenge blog. We all were given the same image and had to create a card with it. Not super happy with my results but it is what it is! If you want to see the others creations you can go here. You can get the image for free there and join in the challenge. Who knows, you may just win the prize!
I have another card I am working on for Squigglefly They released some new images this past Saturday. I just have to finish it up and then I will post it here later. See you soon...happy stamping!

TGIF!! Can you believe another week as gone by?!
Today's card features one of Penny Black's hedgehogs. I love them all! They are so cute and make me smile. This is a card we are doing next month in my card class. I can't believe Christmas will be here before we know it. Our city has already started putting up the decorations and I've seen two winter/Christmas commercials already! Too early in my opinion. Takes away some of the "specialness" for me. Our local mall even has some decorations up in some of the stores..
Hope you have a great day!

Hello! Yes, I am still alive! Sorry I haven't been around. I have been very busy with other stuff and just haven't had much crafting time. I was also filling an order from one of the local animal rescue groups. Now that's done so I hope I get to play today! My new Cricut Imagine arrived last week but I haven't had a whole lot of time to see how it works, etc... A lot of complaints about this machine so that took away some of my excitement. We'll see after I play with it for awhile.
I just love today's card! The colors, the background embossing folder...I bought this stamp at a used stamp sale. I can see me using this one quite a bit! Thanks for stopping today and I promise I will be back real soon!

Hi! Happy's a dark, gloomy, rainy day here. Yuck! But perfect for staying in & stamping so that makes it a great day! I make cards for the birthdays on the Magnolia-licious yahoo group. This one uses a new stamp from the 2010 Autumn collection. Aren't Tilda & Edwin cute? Reminds me of my kids when they were younger. You can find it here. The flowers are actually confetti and the sentiment is a rub on from Pebbles. Hope you have a wonderful day. See you soon.

Howdy! Hope you are having a great weekend. It's really chilly here today but I am not complaining! I can always put more clothes on to get warm but you can only take off so many... Yesterday I went to the stamping convention in town. It was small..the fall one usually is ...but I was able to get all my Copic refills on the list I have been carrying around forever! None of the local stores carried the "full line" so I wasn't able to find the ones I needed...Jackpot! Made my day!( Doesn't take much! LOL!)
I made 2 Tilda cards last night. One is Circus Tilda riding on the Merry go round. This was a fun one to make..lots of Sparkle & fun colors!
The other one uses a background stamp I picked up at a used stamp sale. I think Bon Voyage Tilda looks cute & ready for fall.
Thanks for coming by today. Enjoy the rest of your day! can find Tilda and friends at Magnolia-licious. She has a good selection & great service!

Hi! Long time no see! It has been a crazy week!
It's Saturday and you know what that means? It's new release day at Squigglefly!! I received the new image called "Gday". Isn't it cute? You can purchase it here for only $2.00. I love digis because you can print them out in whatever size you want. And for every $15.00 you spend at Squigglefly you can pick a free image of your choice. There are also some new sentiments this week.
There is a Stamping Convention in town. I wasn't going to go but a friend wanted someone to go with. She is recovering from hip surgery for the 2nd time. She really wants to get out & enjoy the "outside world" so I said I would meet her there. It should be loads of fun. Have a great day and I hope to see you soon.
