Happy Halloween everyone!!! Well the wind is blowing and there's lots of snow still on the ground so I think it is going to be a cold Halloween this year. Well look at this candy bowl. This was a gift from my very good friend Lynn. Thank you Lynn. Isn't it cute. I hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween. TTFN

Halloween creatures

Good evening! Wow, I can't believe it's been almost 2 weeks since my last post. Between work and sick kids it seems like I couldn't get caught up on stuff. The good news is everyone is finally feeling better. Well I have been working on these cute little guys for days now. They are very fun to make but are time consuming. This is done using the pillow box die with the big shot. (I got the idea from splitcoast). To finish them off I covered them in spiderwebs. What do you think? Well I hope everyone has a safe and happy halloween. Thanks for stopping by, and I'll try and post some more later. TTFN


Good Evening, Well I have spent the day catching up on scrapbook pages and finishing this card I started last night. OH yeah and doing laundry, and taking care of sick kids. Anyways this turtle is from a stamp set called Natures Nest. I was going to use this for a belated birthday card but decided to just do happy birthday instead. I took this card apart 3 times trying different things and now my desk is covered in glitter and there is no glitter on the card. lol. I do like how it turned out though. What do you think? Thanks for stoppin by and have a good week:)

Goblin Greetings

Good Afternoon, It's almost Halloween so I'd better start thinking about sending some halloween cards out, lol. On this card I used a tag that I cut out using my big shot. The tag was a bit to long for this card so I cut it a little shorter and rounded the bottom edges and added some black gingham ribbon. I started with basic gray CS for my base and added some paper from the day and night DS paper. The squares are bermuda bay CS which I sprayed with some rubbing alcohol and shimmer paint mix (Thanks for the idea France), which I don't think you can see on the picture.

On the inside I added a piece a white CS so that I can stamp and write a message. I also added some ghosts from a stamp out of the twick or tweet stamp set in the lower right hand corner. So what do you think? I think maybe it needs another bat in the upper right hand corner-hum-? Thanks for stoppin by and leave a message, I love to get messages. Happy Stampin =)

magical birthday wishes

Good Afternoon, I thought I better hurry up and post this in case our power goes out again. This is a birthday card I made for a little girl across the street. I used the Pony Party stamp set. I used one of the texture plate on Melon Mambo paper and heat embossed the stars on the black paper. I used my circle siccors plus to cut out the circles. I think she'll like this. Have a good evening:)

update to Altered notebook

I changed a few things on this. I forgot that I was going to cut out the letters to spell "notes" but when I started putting it together it slipped my mind. How funny. So what do you think.

Altered Notebook

Well this is my first attempt at an altered notebook. I used the day and night paper from the mini catalog from SU. This was fun to do and I can see many possibilites with this. Well i think it's time for some Taco Soup, yummy! Thanks for stoppin by:)

Season of Friendship

This is a card I made today using the Season of Friendship Stamp set. I wasn't excpecting it to turn out so big when I started so this ended up being a large card. It is about 6 1/4 by 5 1/2. I really like this tree and you can make it for any season. I hope everyone is having a good weekend and finding some time to stamp. It's been a very cold and snowy day here so it was a good day to stamp.
My 2 snow angels have a fun time in the snow.

miss you

Good evening, here it is Sunday night and I can't believe I haven't gotten anything done all week. Well I did get my house cleaned yesterday but it seems like I haven't had anytime to stamp. Work sure gets in the way of my stampin time. lol. Oh well I eventually get around to it. This is a card I made for a friend at work. I used the Asian Artistry stamp set (a level 2 hostess set). The paper used were The write Stuff Specialty paper and Chocolate chip patterns DS paper. I also used Very vanilla CS and mellow moss CS. I used my circle scissors plus to cut out the circle. I don't know if you can see it but I added some silver beads to the image and some pearls from the pretties kit. I really like how this card turned out.This is the inside of the card. I folded it to hold a gift card and added some brads to form a pocket. I stamped the dragonfly on one side and then reversed the image for the other side. What do you think? Thanks for stoppin by and have a…
