Best Wishes

I'm a couple of days late on this, YIKES!! I had a couple of birthdays on the brain and just never got back to my PC to post. My birthday was Thursday but more importantly my little one was Friday. And of course that spilled into whatever she wanted to do for the weekend, LOL! How is it your B-day lasts only a day but kids take the weekend, LOL!!

Anyhoo, this is my sweet Humphrey from Crafter's Companion. They have the cutest collection of Humphrey stamps. I paired this one with the new Authentique paper and Distress Inks. LOVE IT!! I have more paper from Authentique and need to play more. The sketch is from Fussy and Fancy and our Friday challenge. Lucky for me the challenges run for 2 weeks and you still have plenty of time to come on over and see what the rest of the DT has created to inspire. We are also celebrating 1000+ followers and have lots of prizes for that too.

I had an interesting time photographing this one. I broke my lightsource and had to take it outside. Well even though we didn't get Hurricane Irene the winds did pass us as it was over the Bahamas and well everytime I was postioned to shoot and gust would take it away. If anyone was videotaping it would have made a great bloopers video!

Happy Monday all! Please come by and visit us over at Fussy and Fancy for our sketch challenge and also drop by our Inspiration Blog at Crafter's Companion for more Humphreys, Popcorn Bear, SWALK and so much fun!

End of Summer Sail away....

Hello Everyone! We are in the final days of Summer vacation for the kids and for me to return to work. So sad....but I do have to say I'm looking forward to the normal routine again. This week has been a whirl wind with my family visiting and today I woke exhausted and with a sore throat, not a good sign.

But I had to get this LOTV in before Summer's end! He's been sitting in my drafts. Too cute! He's colored in Copics and I can't recall the paper but it was just one sheet and it had the perfect back to put this together rather quickly.

Well I hope your Summer days are long and lazy for what is left of them. Today I hope to just cuddle up with a good book.

Sending some Sunshine

Hello and Happy Monday! I've had better Mondays but my sister keeps telling me I am lucky. You see I got a flat tire yesterday evening. She tells me I'm lucky because it was while I was visiting with family and not on the highway with my babies in the car. She is totally and absolutely correct that I was lucky but now I have to get new tires! What about my stamps!!


Fortunately I have neglected some of my stash and I can play with them (giggle)!! This week I'm being really good and not waiting til the last hour to get my LOTV into the Lili of the Valley Challenge. It's Roses this week. I've had this cutie done for a couple of weeks now just waiting to be posted. I think I have caught up with all my latest creations and have to put the markers down and start putting together some more.

I am totally addicted to LOTV now and just can't seem to get enough of them lately. The sentiment is from Whimsy stamps, another fav hang out of mine. Always love to hear what you think...

Only Paper Challenge

Wow!! This was a challenge. I love my ribbon and flowers and of course this little project screamed for it, but I was up for the challenge over at Magnolia-Licioushighlites. It's ONLY PAPER. So here is what I came up with.

Since Tilda is holding a pot of flowers I wanted the card to be the same. Good thing for me I love making flowers too! I punched all my flowers with the Retro flower punch in three different sizes. The centers are VIVA Decor Pearl Dimensional Paint. I believe that was allowed. (At least I hope so!). The paper ribbon is twisted tissue paper. At first I twisted real tight but I didn't like the bow it made so I loosened it a bit. Much better!

This is a big card, LOL!! It stands 7 inches high. I winged it with the size when I was cutting the base and didn't realize how much volume the flowers would add. I wouldn't change it though. I love it!

So here it is ALL Paper! Thanks for the challenge! This was really fun to make!

Just Because

Hello Everyone, a quick little post just because. I finished this card a few weeks ago and it's driving me nuts because I don't have a sentiment for it. I am having SENTIMENT Block! Nothing just seemed right so I have left it alone.

I would love to hear any suggestions PLEASE!! She's done is distress inks and the paper is Julianne from K & Company. It's such a great paper stack and I haven't really played with it. Need to fix that!

In other news, I design for Crafter's Companion and they are giving away thier new Envelobox boards. You don't need the Ultimate tool to play with these boards and they are pretty cool. They make perfect envelopes for our Maggies and all thier pretty embellishments. I'm going to be setting the post to sit at the top (if I can figure it out) if not you can find it here. It's only for one week!
