Shake it

Hello Again,

So there I was looking at some great blogs when I saw a shaker card. I have never attempted a shaker card but it looked like fun. So of course I googled up some tutorials on how to make a shaker card...who knew there was so many ways ha! So anyway that inspired me to attempt to make one. Which I did, but it also made me realize I needed some new products....naturally. So now I better make one or two more shaker cards to justify spending on some new supplies!

So the image is another freebie from All Dressed Up, which I love. The heart and stars glitter is Martha Stewart that I got on clearance woo hoo! I colored her with some copics and this is what I came up with. Not bad for my first time.

Thanks for stopping by!

Babies on my mind


So I have less than two weeks to go now until my daughter's due date, let;s hope she does not go late!
But with that being said I have been doing some maternity cards. This particular card I did a while ago, it was a request from someone that needed a card for an upcoming baby shower. The image is a digital from Mo's Digital Pencil. I love how this card came out.

I colored her with my copics. The baby carriage is a die from Memory Box that I just added some ribbon and pearls to.

Thanks for stopping by and putting up with my baby count down haha!

Just found this!

Hi Everyone,

Hope all is good. Life is great with me! So was looking at some blogs and cards when I came across All Dressed Up digital stamps. Oh my goodness how cute are they and there was even a couple of freebies on the site. So of course I had to download them and try it out. I am sure many of you have seen them but apparently I have been in a bubble somewhere haha!

This is what I came up with.

Can you believe she was free? Who doesn't love a freebie?  I colored her with my copics then added a bit of Stickles because I love my stickles. Hope you like her.

Stay warm and thanks for dropping by.

Too Hot to Handle

Hi Everyone,
  No I am not talking about the weather with that post title, since it is freeeezing here! But hey that is winter so we need to warm things up which is exactly what my card today will do. If you are shy avert your eyes lol!

Found this adorable digital stamp on line from Slinky Tart. I occasionally like to stray from all the cuteness and do something a little more adult like if you know what I mean. Of course my husband walked in the offices while I was making it and wanted to know if it was for him haha! Love that guy.

I colored her using my copics and kept the rest of the card pretty simple. Hope you like her!

Have a great afternoon and thanks for stopping by.

Third Times the Charm

Hi Again,

 I know right, what am I doing back so soon hahaha. Just could not stay away, you all make it so fun.
So I created this charming card and had to share it. I have just been on a card making spree and I hope it lasts for a while. Funny I never really get in a housecleaning spree and if I do it definitely does not last long ha!

So this is a digital image from Saturated Canary that I colored with my copics. I also used stickles on her shirt for some extra sparkle. The bird cage is a Tim Holtz die. Hope you enjoy. I will be back next week. We are having family over on Sunday, going to do a little betting on when my daughter will have the baby and what it will weigh.

Twice in one week!

Good Morning friends,

I know what you are thinking, who is this woman that is posting twice in one week when before the holidays it was maybe twice in a month hahaha! Well lucky for all of you I have had some free time on my hands, better I use it creatively otherwise, I might get into trouble...

Sooo, love must be on my mind this week as I have done another Valentine's Day card. I could not resist because I love these La La Land images, how can you not. I can't wait until my granddaughter is old enough to make cards for. (I guess it would be best if I waited for her to be born first hehe.)

So here is my cutie:

Again I colored her my copics and used up some scrap paper I had in my bin. I am very excited I have not bought any new paper in quite some time now, although I am starting to weaken. Enjoy the rest of the week!

Happy New Year

Hi Everyone,

Seems I was missing for some time. Just got too busy with life, you know how it is. But it is a new year and with the holidays behind us for the moment I have some free time to enjoy crafting. Hope everyone enjoyed their holidays. Mine was quiet which was perfect for me after the crazy year I have had.

Now I have four weeks until my daughter's due date! I am very excited about becoming a grandmother. Although not sure how I feel about people thinking I am old now haha! We know it is a girl and let's just say she will not need any new clothes for a while (although that won't stop me from buying more). They are just so cute! She is due February 9th I am sure she would like to go a few days early, but either way just in time for Valentine's Day!

Speaking of which, I have made this adorable card for Valentines Day. I used a digital stamp from La La La Land stamps. How cute is Luca. I have colored him using my copics and just added lots of layers. Basically using up some of my scrap paper since I have a bin full.

I thank you for stopping by and I am hoping to post again this week and not make it so far in between! Have a great day.
