Here is my card today... I did the cracked glass technique because I wanted to try a new way to get more layers of embossing powder on. It cracked way better this time. The stamp that I used was from stampers anonymous. (I love their stamps) I used all stampin up paper and then I sewed with my machine on the card itself. I used brads on the underneath strip... TFL

Just thought I would finally post the clipboard I made for Lindies room. I actually made 3 in total. I am not sure what I will do with the other two but I just thought that they were so cute. TFL.

Circle santa remade

I don't know how to make my mom believe me that I need her to give me all her stamp sets cause I fall in love with every one I touch. This is a stamp set by Stampin Up and it is called Star Santa. I colored it with my copic markers. I also used basic grey paper, SU old Olive and real red.
*Remade it without the bag. It just didn't look right. Mom said it looked like a weird embellishment and had to ask if it was a bag. It looks good in real life!

Joy again

I stinkin love this Joy stamp from Stampin Up Thanks Mom for letting me borrow it. This card came together fairly easy unlike the other one... I might actually hand out christmas cards this year... Well don't put your money on it... LOL

We "witch" you a Merry Christmas...

LOL I colored these images and then looked at them and thought "guess I should have colored these a month ago." But I loved them and so I am sending this to my Sister for a Christmas card. She'll Love it. This one is for you Ruby... Sarah.. I told you I would make it...
I just ordered Magnolia stamps...I just ordered Magnolia stamps... I think.... There was no place to put a credit card number so I am not sure. I have been drooling over these for some time now and my stampin up lady canceled stampin up this month so I thought I would buy something new with my monthly budget!!! I am so stinkin excited. Stamps make the world go round!!!

When the heater was out

I made this!!!


Holy crap it's stinkin cold in my house... The furnace went out last night and the repair people. Well you know how repair people are. Oh well I guess patience is a virtue and everyone always says I need to learn some.

So anyway Sarah came over last night to hang out. We played with the copics and made some cards. We had a cracked glass image from the other day that I had done and we decided to put it together. I love the way that is turned out, with the stick on the top and the colors are great. We did awesome!!!

I don't have time for this....

Sarah, I made a card just for you, because I disappointed you yesterday!!! Here it is...

So potty training at our house has been a joke. My DD is 3 and then some and still doesn't quite get it. We got back from getting doughnuts this morning and she was still dry!!! I asked her if she needed to go and she put her hands on her hips caulked her head to one side and said "I don't have time for this" LOL Kids say the funniest things.

I finally got to play with my copic markers. YEAH!!!! This is the picture I decided to color. I thought it was very festive. I found it as a clip art and loved it. I used copics to color of course. I think it looks good. I hope I can continue to get better at these things cause I am just not quite there....

I got my copics... I know I have a ton of work to do but I thought I would post my very first copic color... I printed it off the copic website because there was a tutorial I will probly do it 100 more times before it looks decent but hey I'll keep trying... P.S I messed up on the bow so I didn't finish it...

Wendover week

Holy crap where did my week go. Oh yeah it got lost in Wendover just like all my money... LOL I swear that after you go to Wendover it takes at least a week before you are up to par again. I really did make cards last week and so I am going to post my favorite. It is colored with water color crayons and and then inked in basic brown. I added brads to the sentiment. Hope you like it. TFL

Papa's picture tin

My DFI went into the hospital yesterday to have planned open heart surgery for to repair a hole in his heart. We found out that my two daughters would not be able to go see him and he began to cry. I was going to make him a card but because he couldn't see his girls I thought I would give him pictures instead. I had been saving this case for the perfect thing and nothing seemed to ever come together but when I saw it I thought it would be perfect to protect the pictures in the hospital. I used tons of rubons, a Heidi swapp flower, and tres Jolie paper. I think that it turned out way cute. I would have decorated the case more but since it was

Sicky Picky

Why can I never get a full nights sleep.... Because I have children!!!.... My dd is up puking and is not feeling good and since my dh has to work tomorrow I am the one who is up. That's okay because at least I am not puking, lol. Look on the bright side right? I did get to make a card today that was a pocket card It wasn't exactly what I had in mind but I think it still turned out cute. I love this paper and have been hoarding it for like a year now because I want to make a scrapbook page with it but it called to me tonight I had to use it good thing I still have enough to make at least one scrapbook page still.... Hope your night/day is better than mine...

Watercolor crayons

I have been debating whether to buy copic markers or not.... Ahhh they are so expensive but I would love to play with them. My mom came over this week and so I decided to borrow her water color crayons I never thought I would be able to make them look good at all but I think this card looks great. I really like the watercolor crayons. Maybe these will make it so I don't NEED the copics right now.
