My Beautiful New Ribbon Rack !!!

My Dear Husband made this gorgeous cabinet for me for Christmas. It holds about 400 rolls of ribbon and each of the little racks swing out for easy access to the one you want. it has the peg board on the front if i want I can store more items. I kind of like it clan at this time. If I need space in the future I may use it. Is he just not the BEST !!!!!

My Hubby's Very First Card Ever !!!!

My Dear Husband made me this Anniversary Card .. He spent 3 weeks planning and hiding and scoffing stuff out of my Card room LOL .. He even used the Cuttlebug with a Nestability .. asked for a few insructions and off he snuck .. it was spread all over the pool table and covered .. I was forbidden to peek .. and I didn't.
He even made a purchase off Ebay for some little voice recorder thingy's that he recorded "If I Could Save Time In A Bottle" on ... so when I open it... it sings to me... I was very impressed with his first attempt ever !!!! Oh and it weighs about 2 pounds LOL .. He is Awesome !!!!!

Here is my first Valentine card... made with Outlines rubber stamps ...all the little hearts are popped up and colored with copics with a little bling on each. The roses have stickles so IRL it is pretty sparkly !!! Hope you like. If you click on the pic you can see all the details better.

Pretty Poinsetta's

I made this card tonight for my Manager .. I love it. It was made with my new Outlines stamps. 3 different size poinsetta's embossed in gold on shimmery white card stock and popped up on each level placed over the hollyberries in the back ground also embossed in gold. Then I colored in the leaves and berries with copics and crayola mark it markers. I used little tiny gold seed size blingy things in the middle of the poinsetta's.
I really like how it turned out... hope you like it too :)

Made with my most favorite Santa stamp from Rubber Stampede and all the paper is from CTMH ...


I've seen this idea used many times on SCS with the SU set ... but I do not have it so I used my little Clear Stamps from We R Memory keepers

So Sweet !!

Matteo beat Duke and Dolly to the pillow :)

This is a pic of my Precious Grandson !! He came to visit Grandma and Grandpa in Nov and we still had halloween candy in the pumpkin ... guess what he found LOL ...

Happy Holidays!!!

I love VERVE Stamps. I made this with Verve's Poinsetta Christmas set. They are awesome stamps. I used SCS254 except I changed the square to an oval for the sentiment. I like the look with the MS fern punch.

One Horse Open Sleigh

I made this card with an old PSX stamp. I bought a mixed box of stamps from Ebay quite awhile ago. This stamp and 7 other old PSX stamps were in the box and they had never seen ink. They are such beautiful stamps and stamp perfectly.

I needed a masculine card... I got this stamp in Las Vegas at Viva Las VegasStamps when we were there in March .. WOW what a store ... it has a bazillion stamps of absolutely everything.. very cool store.
I made this trying with a little retro feel and gave it to a guy that was leaving my dept at work .. one of the girl's added in on the sentiment "to look at"
I really like how it turned out.. Thanks for looking!!!

This little card was made with the Imaginisce stamps. I actually got the idea from this card on SCS Thanks for the inspiration KatarinaM

This is Lovey little Bear.. he is a Morkie and is the sweetest little guy !! He loves the snow .. it is hard to get him in the house on a snow day .. he will sit there on a mound of snow and just look around .. no matter how cold ... for hours. I love my little Bear !!

This is one of Dolly's Princess poses. Just kickin' back on her pillow ...

Here is an update on Duke and Dolly the Dachshunds .. The little black one is Dolly, she is a total Princess. They are minis and in this pic they are both sitting on a pillow. They are now 6 months old and seem to be getting longer every day, They are such little lovey's, so affectionate and if they are not snuggling on our laps they are like this ... twisted into each other like little pretzels. Duke and Dolly ... The Dachshunds.

This is a Stamps Happen stamp .. don't these little guys just wanna make you smile ?

I finally made a Shaker Card !! I used Beate's video tutorial on SCS .. it was easy to follow and such an awesome result !! Again with the tying of bows for me .. a challenge but I think it turned out ok .. I taped the ribbon so it looked kind of flowy (Is that a real word ? Flow y ? ) LOL

1St Snow Globe Card

This was a challenge on SCS .. how fun and easy was this and I love how it turned out.

Let it SNOW !!!

I am back ... I have been absent the last few months and being very lazy in updating my Blog. I have been making cards and I think this is one of my favorites this season. I used the Inkadinkado stamp set called Holiday Sentiments and the Snowflake is from CTMH. I have a challenge with ribbon... I love it and have tons but can't tie a pretty bow ... but this one turned out perfect !! Practice.. Practice.. Practice .. Hope you like !!!

SC242 Oooooo So Scary

Thanks for the great sketch Roxi .. here is my version .. think it might be my DS birthday card .. his B Day is Oct 30 and it has always been about Halloween .. Last year he even asked for his Graveyard cake ( one I had made him when he was little) He was 21 and got a big kick out of it.

Card for my Dogsitter

This was made for the lady I bought my Mini Dachshund from .. she is also my new dog sitter!! I put a little tiara on the dog cuz my new pup is a female and is now the princess of the house. My little Morkie even steals the cushion off the patio chair for Dolly the Princess to lay on ... way to funny !!

American Art Stamps ROCK !!!

This was made with my new American Art Stamps. The Zenspirations series. Dealing with this company is amazing !! I had a small mix up in my order and I emailed Quincy .. she responded within minutes and also called me personally the next day to apologise. WOW!!! what an amazing company !! I will definitely purchase from them again ... you can find them here ...

Try a Tri Shutter .. their FUN !!!

I finally got around to making a tri shutter card. I was a little intimidated by this card but it was easier than it looked :) I left a little panel blank so I could personalize it when needed. I used stamps from Inkadinkado's Happy Days and a few stampingbella sentiments along with the back sentiment from Outlines. The DP is from My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow and the CS is Coredinations. Hope you like it !!!

Have an awesome day !!

RIP Jamie !!!

This card was made for a very dear friend of mine. She and her husband lost their 18 year old Son to a very tragic accident on Friday .. Rip Jamie .. you will not be forgotten...

It was actually cased from here Nifty Naggy was my inspiration for this card.. hers is beautiful. Thank You Nifty Naggy , Your card is amazing!!

I made this just for fun .. I had stamped the images quite awhile ago but could not get it set up right on a card .. so in the end this is what I ended up with. I am still not set on it but I guess it is what it is .. I love the colors and the dp by Basic Grey Lime Rickey. I stickled the wings on the fairy and stamped her twice so she is popped up. It is very bright and cheerful IRL ...

Me and my Furbabies !!

These are my Furbabies .... Dolly ... Bear and Gizmo.

My New Baby !!!

Ok .. So here is my new baby.. her name is Dolly and she was born June 13 and she is now the Princess in our home. she is a Mini Dachshund and she is so adorable !! I went to a garage sale on the weekend cuz I was bored .. well now I am grounded from garage sales LOL ...
I have wanted a mini for years Thanks to Karen .. a friend of mine .. I used to babysit her little Mini and fell in love with him ... Max ...what a character... Each time I went looking for a mini another little face would win me over and I ended up with my Gizmo .... a Chihuahua Shitzu mix .... a year later I went looking and came across a little Morkie.. a Yorkshire Maltese cross..... and the we had Bear !!! So now I have my mini and I think I had better stop now .. but those faces !!!
