we had an AWESOME family day yesterday, went to Monsters vs Aliens and spent the day at the skateboard was hot in everyway!!!

hope you have had a great weekend too!!!

the background is made from my new paisley spellbinders impressabilities...the jury is still out if I like them...but I think it worked ok for this card

this blue card was made by my 7 year old :) he guilted me into givin him one of my precious stamped images from a friend by saying "you hog all the good stuff mom" and took the image while I was occupied laughin my butt off

check out the display...he set it all up special to take the photo...too funny!!! a boy after his mom's heart I say :)))

I have THE BESTEST friend EVER!!!

she is my sweet girl from etown Tammy

I sent her a set of framed girls a while back and I got something so awesome in return!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my word I have seen these stamps & thought about it but just never got around to ordering one because truthfully it is such a luxury, one I would not have thought my crafts worth.

So I am totally crying here because T ordered me something
JUST for me
MADE for only me
because she thought my stuff is worth it


and LOOK at it...could it be more perfect?

no I think not!!!

I am SO complimented
so honored
so humbled
and so thankful

WOJ Katharina's Sketch

here is the awesome sketch from the creator of the WOJ line for challenge 38!!!

I really do like this sketch and made a congrads on your pregnancy card

while I was makin the card I was thinkin of a friend I work with that like Doug & I, had ALOT of problems getting pregnant

I am SO HAPPY that finally she & her hubby are havin a baby & made this card with much love!!!

I did not have an expecting stamp so I used a stamp I had & made her "look" pregnant by adding multiple layers of stickles & Diamond Glaze.

If you have any questions about the paper or stamp or embellies please just ask!!!

thanks for comin by

see ya soon!

My Favorite Card So Far I worked last nite & just had all kinds of energy today


who knows but I am not questioning it :)))

So I started coloring this beautiful image from a friend to match some gorgeous prima flowers I bought yesterday and it all just kinda came together (although these are not my favorite colors)

I just love this card

it screams me

it screams to be given to someone real special

it screams good job

not something I often hear from myself (I am sure many of you ladies can relate to that)

so I will leave to work shortly happy & proud of my blog accomplishment if only for a moment!

thank you so much for comin by

see ya soon

Second Challenge for today: Just Magnolia Week 12 - So Charming

this next challenge is to use metal charms :)

they make me happy!

so I used this image stamped by a friend

I just LOVE her (my friend & this stamp)

and to me it looks as if Tilda is holding something

so for the So Charming challenge she is holding

"made with love" "just for you"

the patterned paper is from DCWV citrus stack

this is "Dragonfly Tilda" but I colored her with copics to look like a bee :)

hope you like her anyways :)

thanks for lookin

see ya soon

Whiff of Joy Challenge #37

I am lovin these stamps :) and challenges at woj

and cause a beautiful friend sent me some images I am able to put out some new cards

this one I personally love

hope you like it too

This challenge was to create with a woj stamp, and 3 flowers, 3 patterned papers and some ribbon

here is my interpretation

there are these brassy colored prima flowers & some prima bling with a "delight"ful transparency...I love transparencies and I ordered 100 of those just for you stars cause I love them and bought some more of my favorite crochet ribbon :)

yep a lot of my favorite things on this card :)

thanks for comin by
