One of a kind

Hi All,
Just a quick post, cause I am tired!! I just got back from Southern Plains Co-op's Annual Meeting. I think the meeting went well, but I sure was glad when it was over!

I am not going to give many of the details on this card today. If you have any questions, be sure to ask me. The main image is a Penny Black stamp that I borrowed from my Mom, Ila. Thanks for letting me stamp off this image Mom, I absolutely love it!! The designer paper is from Magnolia. I paper pierced the top and the bottom of the image.
Hope you like it!! I have one more card to post using this same stamp in a couple of days!!

And, I just wanted to say, thanks so much, to all of you for your great comments lately. It sure helps me want to get out there and stamp!! Sometimes I really need the inspiration!!
Have a great day!!

Happy Happy Monkeys

Don't these guys look like they are having some fun?? I wish I could be floating with a balloon right now! I have a bunch of birthdays coming up, so I have got to get a move on some birthday cards. Below are the details for this card...

Stamps: Changito's love balloon - Stampendous, Birthday messages - Hero Arts
Paper: Georgia Pacific CS, Bazzill CS, MME wild asparagus designer paper
Ink: Palette Noir black, SU Basic Black, Versamagic Jumbo Java
Accessories: May arts ribbon, SU cord, brads, crystal effects on the balloon
Techniques: stitching, distressing

Image was colored with my favorite medium...prismacolor pencils and OMS. I used crystal effects on the balloon, and then could have kicked myself!! If you look closely, you will see that I used a SU marker to make a little design on the balloon, and then when using the crystal ran a little bit!! I swear I was sitting there watching it dry, thinking I totally ruined this card!

Now, I am going back to bed for a little nap. I have a crappy cold..that I can't seem to kick...and I'm sooo tired!! Talk to ya all later!!

Hip Hip Hooray!!

Sorry guys, AGAIN I haven't posted in a while!! I have been working late every night, and then by the time I get supper made and are done with the dishes, it's just about time for bed. We have also had a busy couple of weeks!!
Last weekend my husband and I went to Minot, ND , to go and order some windows for our house. I think I was shocked when I saw how expensive they are. And we still need to buy everything else we need! I had almost gotten my husband talked into a Canon S5 Camera, but he seems to think that maybe we can pick that up next time. Oh well, guess I can't complain too much, I have a pretty good camera now, even if it is a few years old!!

On Wednesday, DH and I went to Regina, so my husband could have an MRI on his knee. The doctors have told him that he has a bakers cyst (which is when the fluid surrounding your knee bursts), but they wanted to check it out further. Had a good day, we were only in the hospital for 2 1/2 hours, could have been alot worse!
** If you are looking for an awesome scrapbooking tote, Costco in Regina has some!! The tag on the shelf said 44.99, but when I went through the till, it rang up as 27.99 and there was another 5.00 off at the till!! I picked one up for a friend of mine.

Here is the card I have been trying to finish all week. Sorry it has taken so long! The image is from my most recent order from stamping bella. What an awesome place to order from, be sure to check it out!! Make sure you click on the card, to see all the glitter!!
The coloring was done with prismacolor pencils and OMS. I distressed the paper around the girls and some of the other pieces with just a sharp edged scissors.

Stamps: Stamping Bella - jumping for joy, Hero Arts - anytime messages
Paper: Georgia Pacific CS, Imagine that CS, Bazzill CS, DCWV The glitter stack
Ink: Palette Noir ink, SU Real Red, Only Orange
Accessories: Baubles from Dollarama, May arts ribbon, unknown button, brads, prima flowers

I have the most exciting news. I am going to be walking in the Relay for Life, in Estevan, Saskatchewan on June 14th!! The walk will start at 7 pm on Saturday night, and go till 7 am the next morning. This walk is to support the Canadian Cancer Society!! I will have more details for you soon!! I really think this is a great cause to support, because Cancer touches so many people in so many ways!

Veggie Bella - Thanks

I was hoping to upload a card last night, but was very busy with a great new friend of mine. We met at her place after work, ordered in supper, she made dessert (yummy strawberries and ice cream), and we spent lots of time sharing ideas and a little stamping. A great time was had by both of us!! She is mostly a scrapbooker, so I got to see some of the most amazing scrapbooks. It made me want to start on my own scrapbook!! I hope we get together again!

And so, my cards are getting uploaded today instead of yesterday. I am just glad that you are actually getting a couple of posts this week!
