Amazing news!!

I have the most exciting news ever!! I have been invited to become a DT member for one of the newest challenge sites on the internet!! It is called A Spoon Full of Sugar, please if you have a chance, go and take a look!!

I get to join some amazing ladies in making cards with either Rachelle Anne Miller stamps or Sugar Nellies. I don't even own any sugar nellies yet, so hopefully this will increase my colection.
New challenges are posted every Tuesday, and we would love if you wanted to play along!!

Below are the links to the other amazing design team members. Make sure you check out their blogs too....absolutely amazing!!


This was just a quick post before work, so if any of the links have problems, I will try to fix them when I get home!

Have a great weekend!

Lily & Milo - for you card!!

I just got some of the wonderful Lily & Milo stamps last week, and couldn't wait to play with them!! I got mine from Sweet'n Sassy Stamps and then found out that I could also get them here at 7kids college fund. If you haven't bought some yet, you should go over there and take a look. These are great sites and offer great service!
I think that my card will work for the great new challenge blog that just got started. It is called a spoon full of sugar, and here is the link to the site.

The image was colored with prismacolor pencils and OMS.
Stamps: Lily & Milo - for you, CTMH for every occasion
Paper: georgia pacific CS, MME Magnolia dp, K&Company dp, Imagine that textured cardstock
Inks: SU certainly celery, Dew drop brilliance in pearlescent lavender
Accessories: May arts ribbon, Making Memories brads, Gelly Roll white gel pen, charm from Dollarama.

This card was so much fun to color, so I sure hope you like it!!

Have a great week!

Birthday card

Hello there!
I made this card over the weekend for the Ismaki challenge #20.
The main image is from a new Penny Black Clear Stamp set called "Critter Party". The sentiment is from Hero Arts - Birthday Messages.
Paper is from Imagine that, and K&Company - designer mat pad. Flowers are primas. Coloring was done with primacolor pencils and OMS.

For the circle.... the largest base is from tracing around an old CD. The next one is the largest coluzzle template, and the rest are from a set of nestibilities that I have.

Thanks again for all your wonderful comments. I sure love getting them!!

Card for my blog candy winner!

I made this card for Jill, who was the winner of my blog candy. I wasn't going to show anyone the card until she got it, and I got word last night, that it has now made it's way to her.

I again used an image from my blogger friend Kristine. (Hey Kristine, can you tell that this is my favorite image?? :-) )
I colored the duck in with prismacolor pencils and OMS, used a gel pen around the image for the dots. Those little flower embellishments are from a hero arts stamp set, and the other flowers are from Prima. Ribbon is May Arts, and the paper....I honestly am not sure...some is from Imagine that, other from K & Company, and the rest is just some random dp from my stock.

I am very glad that this blog has helped me to find some great friends! You guys are all wonderful, and even though I don't have time to get to your blogs everyday, know that sometimes I get just a second, and do take a look, because there is nothing at all that I like better but to get inspiration from all of you!!

Now I'm off, I have been baking up a storm this week for a Relay for Life fundraiser. The place I work...Southern Plains actually having a team this year, but we need to do some major fundraising, so I hope we get some good attendance today. Also, it is starting to look like rain, so I have my fingers crossed. (I'll let you know how everything turns out!!)

Thanks for visiting my blog!!

Mother's day card

One of my co-workers asked me to make a mother's day card for her Mom. So, I got her mother's day card done, but didn't get one done for my own Mom. Sorry Mom!! I guess that means I will have to make you something better then a card!!
I made this card with one of my old retired SU stamp sets, called Petal Prints. I then used my awesome nestabilities for the scallops and oval, and the cuttlebug for the purple cardstock. The colored cardstock is from Bazzil Basics, flowers are Prima's, ribbon is from May Arts.

Hopefully I will be back in a few days with a new card made with my new Rachelle Anne Miller stamps, because I just received 2 of her designs from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps in the USA. Their service was unbelievable, and I even got a homemade card with my order!! I would definitely recommend them to anybody!!

Have a great day!
