Love the fall

Hi Friends,

Hope you are all well. I have been a bit busy, got called for jury duty and I have been assigned a case which means for the next week or so I must report to court every day. It is rather interesting but it causes such chaos in my weekly routine. But I suppose there are a lot worse things I could be doing.

I am in the process of working on the baby shower fun. Invitations have been sent, centerpieces ordered, working on favors, cannot wait, I just love a party! I am so thankful I get to be a grandmother soon.... 4 more months but hey who's counting.

Speaking of thankful....I have created this sweet card using a digital stamp from Sassy's Cheryls.
How cute is she. It is hard to find really cute thanksgiving images, I love her with her cute turkey outfit. I colored her with my copics, added some Stickles and Glossy accents along with the cutest pumpkin charm. I love little charms, although sometimes I have the hardest time figuring how to get them on the card so they hang well haha.

I am entering her in the following challenges:

Incy Wincy:  Thankful for you (Hope you can see it in the corner)
Pinkgem Challenge:  Autumn/Fall
Fussy and Fancy Friday:  Autumn Colors
Sassy Cheryl's:  Anything goes

Cute little Pumpkin

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Today it is hard to think about fall since the weather here just turned hot and muggy yech! But since I live right near a huge historical fair (Topsfield Fair) and it opens this Friday, I do know it is really fall.

My cute little card today is an image from Mo's Digital Pencil which I colored with my copics. I really love this cutie, especially since we are planning a baby shower for my daughter next month, I do believe little pumpkin is a great theme hmm....

I hope you all have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by.

Time to buy pink!

Good Morning All,

So my daughter had her ultrasound this week and we got the pleasure of learning we are going to be the proud grandparents of a healthy baby girl!!!! We are thrilled, of course we would have been just as thrilled if it were a boy hehe!

On that pregnancy note here is a cute card I created used a digital stamp from Saturated Canary.

I colored this adorable image using my copic markers. I also used a Tim Holtz die for the frame and a memory box die for the baby clothes.

I can't help myself, all thoughts are on pregnancy and babies.... and I must say I am enjoying it.

I would like to however, mention that my card Let's get Freaky won Top 3 over at Kenny K. That was quite a surprise having just jumped back into blogging.

So thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous week!

Let's get Freaky!

Hello Everyone!

So nice to hear from some old friend with my last post. Nice to see you ladies are doing well and still so creative. I am just getting back into the swing of things, my husband actually told me it was nice to see me making cards again ha! Who knew? That's why I love him. That and he is an incredible cook (hehe) who wouldn't want that in a man.

So here is another Halloween card, what can I say, I am in the Halloween spirit I guess.

This wild woman is a digital image from Kenny K. I colored her using my copics and the sentiment is a wooden stamp from Ikadinkadoo. I thought it was quite sassy!

Hope you all have a good weekend and I hope to be around checking out what everyone else has been up to.

Again thanks for your prior comments, love to hear from all of you.

Let's try this again!

Hi Everyone!

I have decided to slowly introduce myself back into blogging. Now some of you are saying who cares or who are you hahaha, others may say, I think I remember her but either way I am here and there is nothing you can do about it hehe.

For those of you who are interested (and I hope there is at least one of you), I have had a lot go on in my world over the past year or so. I will not bore you with the small stuff but share some fun stuff. First and foremost, my oldest daughter Ashley got married!!!! It was a fun year with lots of planning and the day came and went so quickly but was just magnificent. Yes I am going to post a picture or two, what mom wouldn't?

The happy couple and their adorable flower girls and ring bearer, how cute?

Again the happy couple with their maid of honor, my youngest daughter Brittany and their best man.

All the vows said now on to many more years of happiness!!

So now that I subjected you to that, they were married on April 18th. Well on June 2nd, my wedding anniversary, they told us they are going to have a baby!!!! Well how exciting is that? So even though I think I am too young to be a grandmother (not really), I am thrilled with the news. So she is due February 9th. Hopefully not in the middle of a snow storm.

So all this means is that I am giving up my job outside the home and I will be staying at home starting next year and babysitting full time, a true test to see if I am old or not hahaha.

Anyway if you found this boring wait til I post baby pictures next year!!! But in the meantime, I do have a card to post. I just got back into being creative and I am having a lot of fun with it.

So this cutie is a digital stamp I got last year from Wee Stamps, called Hazel. I colored her using my copics and and lots of stickles. That pumpkin I made using a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs. It was the first time I used it and I loved it, it has a lot of dimension.

I hope you you leave me a little note just to say hello! Thanks for stopping by,

Slow it down.

Hi Everyone,

So you may or may not have noticed but I have not been around much. Life has just been too hectic. Not complaining just stating fact. I had to give up all my Design Teams for now because I could not meet deadlines. I love creating but with everything I had going on it felt more like a job of deadlines than a creative outlet.

So while I may be posting less, I am enjoying whatever I do create. Today I am sharing a card with you that I made for my great niece who is going to be baptized this weekend. She is absolutely beautiful!

I used an image from Mo's Digital pencil that I colored with my copics. The papers are a 6 x 6 pad from Prima called Princess, rather fitting I think lol.
I used Stickles all over her jacket and lace trim to give her some bling, (every girl needs some bling).

I hope everyone else out there is doing well. I am trying to slow it down a bit and make my life a bit less stressful.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will come by again.

I know I have not been around much, just my crazy life right now, a lot going on but should settle down in a month or so. I do have good news to share though, my oldest daughter just got engaged!!!!!

We are so excited. Of course that just added to my list of to do's haha. We went out all day yesterday checking out the venues where she may want to have her wedding. It was a lot of fun. So be prepared for my wedding updates. Of course she fell in love with one of the venues but she may have to change her dated from Saturday to Sunday she will find out this week if her date will be available. So it begins haha!

But enough of my ramblings....We have new challenge at CMC and it is everyone's favorite, ANYTHING GOES. Here is what I came up with.
