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 !!!

My Beautiful Get Well Card !!

I received this gorgeous card from my dear friends Karen and Kim. It is so gorgeous and I have never seen this type of card before. It is made with the most beautiful paper. (sorry , don't know who paper is by but it is amazing double sided paper) I love my card and Thank You Karen and Kim for your usual thoughtfulness !!!!

Operation Update

They kept me in the hospital overnight :( I went to the surgeon and he seems to have a few more qualifications than myself ... huh .. he decided I needed to have a small surgery to clean up some scar tissue that was building up and around the wound. I must admit .. it feels a whole lot better. I go Wed to get the stitches out and then hopefully will soon be done with all this. Yeah but on to much better news .. see next couple of posts ... yeah !!!!

Operation #2 ....????

GRRRRRRRR ... I had an operation on June 4th ... was in the hospital for 16 days ... bed ridden for another 3 weeks after that and now ... tomorrow the surgeon wants to close up the wound. My homecare nurses (who have been coming daily to change the bandages) ..Bless them !!! say that my wound does not need stitching up as it is now pretty level (it was originally about 4.5 cm deep) but still I need to go in and get the surgeons opinion. I am praying the nurses are right.
Will be back tomorrow with the update (I hope) Cross your fingers !!!!!

SC240 Dance Like No One's Watching !!!

This was made for SC240 on SCS. The image is from The Angel Company (TAC) .. and the sentiment is from Stampingbella. I put a little stickles around the dp a bit to give it a little something else. The DP is from Cosmo Cricket. I just thought she was give'n er and dancing like no one WAS watching her.. :) Hope you like !!!!

This was just made to have on hand. He is so cute and I found some alien spacey kind of dp from Crate Paper that went well with the image I thought. Cakey Watt is from Stampingbella.


This was made for the SC239 challenge. I used the Inkadinkado Ornate Christmas Stamps. I used versamark and red dragon sparkley EP. The snowflakes were punched out with a Martha Stewart punch. Hope you like :)
