Looky here....I think this is my third post in 1 week. For me this is a record, sometimes I can't even seem to post once a week. I'm so excited that I've actually had a few cards to share lately!!
This card is for Carla's sketch challenge on Moralia's can check out all the details here...

And here is the card....
Stamps: Stampabilities - tails of true love, Hot off the press - expressions clear stamps (btw...if you guys find a place to buy these clear stamps, I gotta tell you...these are the best stamping clear stamps I have ever found!!)

I can't believe I actually got this card done last night. Usually I sit in my craft room and put on old movies, but last night I put on "how to lose a guy in 10 days" and I ended up watching the whole movie..I didn't really do much creating!! Note to time put on a crappy old movie!!

Card for Dana

Hi Everyone. I have a card to show you, that I made for my Uncle Dana who is battling cancer.
In one of my earlier posts and on a Yahoo group that I am in...called CST...I asked fellow stampers if they would send him a card. My Uncle emailed me today, and told me that said that he got his first card in the mail (he sounded pretty excited about it), so thank you to all of you that have asked me for his address and sent him a card. It really means alot!!

Here is the card that I sent to him. And I just wanted to thank Kristine..of ink something..again for this image.
Stamps: Whipper snapper designs - flowers for you duck, CTMH for every occasion, SU warmest regards.
Inks: SU basic black, VersaMagic jumbo java, Prismacolor Pencils and odourless mineral spirits and Sakura stardust gel pens.
Papers: SU whisper white, Imagine that textured cardstock, DCWV the glitter stack.
Accessories: brads, prima flowers, machine stitching
I made this card VERY, VERY sparkly, by using my stardust pens on the flowers, edges of the prima flowers, and I highlighted the duck with them too. I am sure that my Uncle will enjoy this card!!

RAK request and an wonderful anniversary card.

I got a wonderful card in the mail the other day, for my anniversary. It is from my Mom (Ila) here to check out her amazing blog, and check there later for more details on this beautiful card!!
Isn't this card just beautiful!! I love how my Mom spends so much attention to details. Her coloring is fantastic! Thanks Mom!!

I also have a bit of a request for some of my blog readers. My Mom's brother (my Uncle Dana) has just been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. He is just 55 years old and is terminal. We do not know how much longer he has to live, doctors say that he could go any day, or could live up to 10 months.
When I was younger my uncle would always send me and my family christmas cards that he bought from a store, but he would think that they were to plain, and would buy some glue and glitter and fill them up with glitter, before mailing them to us.
I had started sending him a homemade card for christmas every year, and he always emails our family and tells them, that Trina made him a homemade card, and he says how much he likes it and how nice it is.
Anyways...if anyone would be interested in sending him a card, it would be truly appreciated. He is a great guy and it is going to be hard for him because he is pretty much alone, and doesn't have alot of family around (he was never married and has no children). I know that it would brighten his day.

If you would like to send him a card, please email me for his name and address. My email address is
Thank you everyone.

Well, that's it for today, I am off now for lunch with some of my Co-op friends. I have taken some pictures of my house before we painted it, so hopefully when we are finished, we can take some more and I will show you the huge difference! I think it looks great!!
Have a great day :)

A few new cards!

Good Morning, I am so excited to actually have a day off from work during the week, and because it is so cold, I can't paint my house today!! Sooo, I think I will update my neglected blog, and maybe even have time to make a card or two!

The first card I am sharing today is an anniversary card for my wonderful husband. We celebrated our 6th year of being married on Sept. 1st. I am very lucky to have such a wonderful man in my life. He treats me so great, and doesn't get mad even when I know I spend way too much on stamps sometimes!!

Before I show you the card I made, I would like to share a picture of my husband and our two dogs, Harlee and Wynter(wynter is the white dog..thought you wouldn't figure that

Isn't this picture cute!! Whenever my husband walks in the house and sits on the couch, the dogs are immediately there and won't even let us have a minute of peace. Wynter even insists on sleeping between us at night. But we wouldn't trade them for the word, they are great doggies.

Here is our anniversary card. I don't know if you can tell, but the Love is all colored with sakura stardust gel pens. I love how shiny this looks!!

Stamps: SU Priceless, Hedgehog Happiness, Love Matters

Inks: SU Basic Black, VersaMagic Jumbo Java, SU Cameo Coral, Prismacolor Pencils and odourless mineral spirits and Sakura stardust gel pens.

Papers: MME Magnolia paper, Paper reflections Kraft paper, DCWV Petro Prints Mat Stack

Accessories: May arts ribbon, ticket corner punch, heart brad, staples

Hubby sure liked this card, I am so glad, cause it is so hard to make a card for him!!
