The JOYS of ..... 50

Hehehe .. Thought this was cute ... and it is all true except for  Sleepy .... but first you are sleepy and as soon as your head hits the pillow at 9:00 get all snuggled in .. pillow just right .. eyes closed .... Bang ... it's like you just had caffeine injected intravenously into your blood stream ...your eyes pop wide open and the the rest of the night is messed up.  My poor hubby .. he is so patient when I start nattering at him at 2:00 in the morning... or he hears me turning on my Angry Birds game ..  and the Forgetful part ... OMG .. forgot he was sleeping peacefully right beside me  ......grrrrrrrr .... hope all this fun stuff goes away soon LOL

Hope you had a good laugh ...


Just a Note ...

Hello ... I made this card this morning before work.  I used the January set from The Stamps Of Life.  Love the little note paper stamp.  I also used a embossing folder from Stampin up .. and sanded it, roughed it up a little to give it a distrssed look.
See what a little -30 weather will do for your creative juices  LOL ..
Have an awesome evening !!!

Outlines Challenge 35 - Love is in the Air

Good Evening ..  Here is a card I made today for the Outlines Challenge 35 - Love is in the Air Monday Challenge. I used the Peace Dove stamp .. the dove carries a Star.  Instead I did not ink the star and used a heart from the Growing Hearts Stamp and just stamped the hearts and cut the second one out as it was a bit smaller.
I colored with Laurentian markers, Spica Gold and clear pens for some glitter and added some small rhinestones.  I used my spellbinders for the squares and the scalloped background.
I think this beautiful flying heart depicts LOVE is in the AIR perfectly.  I love my Outlines stamps. This is the very first stamp company I was addicted to.  Love the detail and the option of doing cards simply or getting as detailed and layered as you can imagine .. fun fun fun ......
Hope you like ...
Have a wonderful evening !!!!!!!!!

Double Dutch Fold

I found this very cool fold on SCS this morning .. DOUBLE DUTCH FOLD. I always love to try new folds so gave this a go. I think it turned out really pretty. I made this card for my Mother In Law. She is not feeling very good these days and thought she could use some happy mail. I will give this to my husband to fill out and mail ..cuz as per my post further down .. I procrastinate!!!
I used a new set I purchased from Verve , called One Person. I also used quite a few Spellbinder dies on this . I also used a few pink half pearls to add a little bling.

Hope you like it ..

You're so Sweet

Another little card made with a set from The Stamps Of Life December club member set called Candy2share.
I double stamped the inside of the lollipops with pink and purple to give them a bit more flavour .. and added some stickles. I used The largest die in the spellbinders labels 15 to make the card base. just a quick little card ...
Have a GREAT DAY !!!

Happy 3rd Birthday Matteo James

WISH Big & Happy Birthday Brian ...

Well I am a procrastinator extrordinaire .. I made this card for my Brother Brian's 45th Birthday .. his birthday was Jan 12th .. and looky here... I am taking a picture of it on January 15th ... he lives in Edmonton ... WHOOPS !!!!! I will mail it tomorrow for sure !! ... (yeah right LOL) He asked specifically for one of my 1000.00 cards ... hehehe

I made this with a very old set of Verve stamps called Polka Stars .. in fact it is a rubber set in a CD case ... now how old are those stamps Verve people .. the company was actually called Verve Visual back then .. but I still love this set.... and I part with nothing in my stamp room ... and procrastinator such as I am ... I hardly ever even part with a card ... it's a new year ..lets see if I can change this a bit :) The sentiment is from SU ..Short and Sweet.


Dachshunding thru the SNOW

As most of my friends and family know ... I am crazy for these little Dachshunds ..My husband and I have 4 ... DUKE, DOLLY, DUCHESS and DAISY .. the Dachshunds... When I saw this little stamp ..
