Busy Busy....

Sorry I don't have anything to show you today. I worked on a couple things last night, but wasn't really in the mood. So I am not very pleased with what I came up with. I am hoping to get a little more craft time in soon. And I promise I haven't forgotten about the flower tutorial. :) I am starting to be more comfortable at my job and I think things will start to be more normal soon! I just get home and am so tired...I have no creative juice right now! But I am hoping that will change soon!

I am also working on the Featured Crafter Friday post and you will definitely want to stop by for that! She's a wonderful lady and becoming a good friend, too!

I am off to watch my hubby play softball! Speaking of my hubby...he just got a new job, too. I am so excited for him! And I know this is something he really wanted! There are all sorts of changes going on at our house! Have a great rest of the day.



Kitty in a Pot

When I first saw this image from Stampendous a while back I thought it was cute. I fell in love with it when I realized the kitty had one of the leaves in its mouth. I just cracked up! I also love how guilty the kitty looks for eating the flowers! I think the card turned out really cute. I can't wait to play with this image more. Enjoy!

Have A MFT Day

April 28, 2008 - 6:00am

This is a recent release from My Favorite Things. I am so excited to use this for Mother's Day. Now I just have to find some time to actually make some cards! I am still really tired when I get home from work, but it's getting better every day! I put a bunch of glitter on the shirt and then stamped "Have a Spendiferous Day" on the bottom. Enjoy!

Hanna With Tools

This is a new set from Hanna Stamps called "Tool Time". I just love this set! I had to have her because my Sister-In-Law, my hubby's mom and Step-Mom all are very good with tools. I am also much better with them than I used to be. So this is just so much fun! I love it and can't wait to use her more! Enjoy!

Lady Bugs

This is an adorable image from Stampendous. I got this one from a friend I just love it. I think all of the Fluffle images are adorable! I used glitter paper for the green and yellow paper and used my Swiss Dots CuttleBug folder on the bottom. There is also a little glitter on the flower petals. Enjoy!

This is Docabella and I think it is just perfect for a get well card. My Mother-In-Law hurt her back earlier this week and I thought this would be a good time to ink this little lady up! I used a sketch layout from Beate's site. I didn't enter the contest she was having with this layout but I still wanted to give it a try. I think I will definitely try this one again. It was fun to play around with. I also love the colors...It fits well with a "get well card" because of how cheery it is! Enjoy!

Featured Crafter Friday

April 25, 2008 - 6:00am

I am going to skip this week of Featured Crafter Friday. I am going to have a great lady to share with you next week. I have not decided how frequently I am going to do this, but it just so happens that this one will fall at the beginning of the month. So we'll see what sort of time I get after that. But have no fear....I am not ending them all together by any means. Have a great weekend!



Birthday Fishes

April 24, 2008 - 6:00am

My dad's birthday was last weekend and I wanted to give him a fun card. He is, by far, my best customer when it comes to buying cards. So I knew he would like whatever I made him. He likes to fish, so I knew I had to use this image. (The image is Fishafella from Stamping Bella.) I outlined the image with gray after coloring it in. I added some Crystal Effects to the fish and the worm. It's so cute in person! I also used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder on top of some adorable lure paper. Enjoy!

And the card was a huge hit! He loved it!



Flower Tutorial

I have gotten a few replies wanting a tutorial for the flowers I posted on this post, so I will try to get that done very soon! Thanks for interest! :)



Primas Galore

I made this card for a friend of a friend who had a terrible tragedy in her family. I don't know her very well, but have met her a couple times. I wanted to be sure to send a card to her, though. I hope her family gets peace and closure soon. Enjoy!
