Quick post again!

Hello girls!
Sorry that i've been MIA so long again. I have tons of stuff going on right now!!
Here's a fun card that I made in March....that I almost forgot to post. The image I bought at Funky Kits and is a Leanne Ellis design. I did the coloring with prismacolor pencils and a bit of copics.
In other news.....we bought a couch and loveseat last weekend! They are leather, and recline on both sides of both pieces. I have hardly seen my husband get off the couch since we bought it! We also bought a 46 inch TV and a beautiful tv stand. Now if I could just get my hubby to finish the windows in the living room.....then that room would be finished!!

Well, now I am off to bed...gotta get up in 6 hours!!
Have a great week!!

Happy Easter

I was hoping to post this card when visiting my Mom & Dad this weekend...but with all the Easter meals we got way too busy! I did get to color some images with Mom last week...and we had a great supper on Saturday...and for the meal....I made the perogies. This was the first time I made perogies myself...usually I just cook them for Mom cause all of mine break! But they turned out good...and I think everyone liked them!
Then on Sunday we had brunch at my in-laws house....and that was great too! We had a wonderful time and some great breakfast food....including cream cheese french toast and cinnamon pull aparts. I was in heaven!!

I just got home and still have to finish unpacking...but I didn't want to unpack till I got this card posted.

This is one more of the cute High Hopes images that were released a couple of months ago. If you have any other questions about this card....I would be very glad to help you out!

I'm off to unpack and then bed...

Have a great day!!

You make me smile

This card was supposed to be for the High Hopes challenge last week. The challenge was creative borders. I got the card finished in time, but didn't get a chance to take a picture of it and get it uploaded.

I don't have a list of the supplies that I used for this card...I kind of just did it on the run!! The brad in the right hand corner is from SU's build a brad kit. It was so easy to use....I will be using it way more often now!!

I am so lucky right now...cause I am posting this from my Mom's house and we had a stamp-a-thon last night. I now have tons of images to color...and we will be doing that later on today and tomorrow!!

Have a great day!

I got cards......

I am so lucky!! I have recieved a couple of amazing cards this last couple of weeks, and would love to share them with you!!

This first card is from Kristine Breach at Ink Something. Kristine befriended me when I started blogging, and I treasure our friendship every day! Make sure you go and take a look at her blog...because her creations are AMAZING!!
This second card is from my sister Crystal. Crystal came to visit me last weekend and we traveled to Minot to buy some new supplies. We left JoAnn's Fabrics with tons of new paper and lots of stuff from Hobby Lobby too! I'm so glad that she had a good time! To thank me for taking her, she gave me this beautiful card! Unfortunately Crystal doesn't have a blog....but I think she should start one cause her cards are great!!
I can't believe I've already posted twice in one week. And I think I may have another post or 2 in me yet!! **wish I was on holidays all the time**
Have a great day! And thanks for all your wonderful comments!

Biking boy and holidays....

Hello everyone,
I have a new card to show you using one of my favorite images. I very good friend of mine (you know who you are...just wanted to say thanks so much!!), gave me this stamp as a gift, and I made this card a while ago, but just haven't had a chance to post it.

I hope that posting this card means that spring is really on the way! We still have quite a bit of snow here yet, so until the snow is gone...to me it still feels like winter!!
Stamps: Hanglar, HOTP matching borders & focals
Inks: Memento black, copic markers, prismacolor pencils and OMS, white gel pen
Paper: bazill cs, georgia pacific cs, MME Out & About
Accessories: prima flowers, glitter brad, may arts ribbon

For the rest of the week I am hoping to color some images with my Mom. I'm on holidays right now, and don't go back to work until next Monday. I'm heading home on Wednesday morning...and I can't wait. We just don't get to spend enough time together anymore!!
My husband and I just gave both of our dogs a bath...so they smell good when we go home, and we are going to be busy packing tomorrow to leave.

I have been so bad at looking at blogs these last few weeks. I'm sorry if I haven't gotten to your blog. I am taking a peek...but sometimes it just takes so long to comment....I'm hope you understand. I will try to get better again when I get back from Melville. I am hoping to get another post up before I leave, cause I've got another easter card almost done.

In case I don't get my card posted, I wish everyone a very happy easter. And I hope that you get together with family this weekend!!
Take care!!
