I love this sketch. SC238 on Splitcoast. This was made with Pocket Silhouettes and Heard from the Heart stamps from SU. I also used a rub on on the corner for the first time.
Hope you like :)

Sketch challenge gone wrong

This was made for the Mojo Monday sketch 96 challenge .. but things went terribly wrong ...I measured very badly and the panels did not fit across ... so instead of trashing .. I adjusted and put one panel across. Also used my Pink Cat Studio stamps and stickled the ribbons and bows.

Card for SC237

Good Morning, This was made just for fun. I used the Sketch Challenge SC 237 from SCS. The little flower was stamped twice and is raised .. hard to tell here .. it is also stickled and is very glittery IRL.. I also used 3 different Cuttlebug folders for some aded texture. The gorgeous Dp is from Chatterboxinc called Together Ruby.
Enjoy !!!

Outlines Christmas in July

When I first started making cards a few years back... a couple good friends of mine .... Karen and Kim were buying up the Outlines stamps and I loved the detailing involved so I started buying a few of them myself.
I made this ornament by stamping and embossing on 3 different colors of cardstock ... then I cut out each layer .. 8 to be exact and glued together. I like the look of it .. still :)

Thanks to the Gang at work

This was made for the gang at work, who after my operation sent me a beautiful bouquet, they know I love gerberas so it was full of them... so now .. one back to them :) I used the TAC Gerbera daisy stamp and Basic Grey DP ...with a few dew drops as an added touch.

My First MOJO Monday Challenge

This is my first Mojo Monday Challenge card MOJO94 , How exciting .. The card was made for my daughter Shannon , who is moving to Port Alberni BC on Vancouver Island. My oldest daughter moved there June 1st and broke my heart, and now my middle daughter is also moving there. With this ... it also means my Gorgeous 6 month old grandson Matteo is going. They do not understand why my heart is breaking ??? But they need my support and undertanding that they need to venture out and try something new. (Both their boyfriends are from there and the guys feel the need to move home for some reason)
So hopefully this will give them little comfort ... knowing on the outside I understand they need to spread their wings and try something new. .. but on the inside I am heartbroken (the card below is for my oldest daughter .. it has the same sentiment on the back.. the ketto card)
Ok enough said ... keep smiling Mom !!!!

Hubby's 50th

This is not a very good pic but I made this for my Hubby's 50th birthday this past June 15. I have been bedridden since June 4th and I am very late in uploading and updating my blog.
Since our favorite place to go is vegas and we were married in vgas on Dec 24th 2008, I thought this would be a good theme for his card this year.
When I was digging thru his poker chips he asked why I needed to take the ones that were worth the most ... I just told him "when it comes to cards in this house ...everything was game" LOL
He still actually gets them back .. right !!

Cupcake Cutie

I made this card for a riend of my daughters little one who was turning 3.
