1st Bella Card

Mom here is my first Bella Card. I know how much you love them and I hope I have made a good one so you will continue to love them. LOL

I got them yesterday and I have been coloring them all night. I think they are so fun to color. I used my spica pen to glitter the dress. I seem to be using that on all my cards lately.

A new Happy Birthday card

Because I gave away the other card to my demo I wanted to make another birthday card with this set before I gave my mom back this set. I love it and it colors so fun


I love to color cornicopias because they have so much color and detail you can see the shading and the work that went into it.

I love dragonflies

Man ever since I was little I remember loving dragonflies and now it is no different I am pulled to anything that has them on them and I have to have all the stamps that have dragonflies on them... I want to buy this stamp set from stampin up but since Sarah has it I have not bought it for myself yet. I used my new copic glitter pens that I received this week I was concerned that they wouldn't work cause I ordered the clear ones but I love the way they work they color on any color and just add a perfect amount of shine. I hope you like it TFL

Congratulations on baby

Holy Crap it is 1:30 and I have already gone to the dentist and made a card!!! If only I was this productive everyday. I love this set well I guess both of them bundled in love and bundle of joy. They color so nicely and I think they make a wonderful baby card. My friend called me to tell me that she is having a boy. She really wanted a girl but she says now she just wants healthy. I am so happy for her. Congratulations!!!

For this card I used bundle of joy and bundled in Love, copics (of course), unknown ribbon, rhinestones and dp from my scrap pile so I am not sure who made it...

Chipboard Tag

This is the card that I made today! My mom bought a package of Chipboard and said that we had to use a piece from it to make a card. I had seen somewhere a challenge to make a Christmas card with nontraditional colors and I thought that this would be perfect. I know that the stamp set is a SU set but I am not sure which one. I will check tomorrow. I used the paper out of the same packas the chipboard it had no brand and I stamped the snowflakes and the sentiment with black stazon. TFL

PIF Image Swap

I have been watching from the sidelines on splitcoast the thread that is for PIF Image Swap and finally decided I had better join in. I received this cute frog on there and I just love him. I think the only problem with image swaps is I still want all the stamps if the images I receive lol. I used my SU punch across the sides and colored him with copics of course. I think he turned out way cute!!! TFL

Me? Give away a card?

I am not one to generally give away cards. I make a ton of cards and just hoard them. I have been better about it since I have been doing my blog because I have a way to remember all the cards that I make and I know that if I want to I can remake them. I have been trying and actually gave a card to DH friend that was in the accident and not just any card it was a fav. That was huge for me. I also am giving the birthday card that I made yesterday to my Demo.

I think a lot of the reason I do not give them away is because they are a part of me in one way or another. I am one of those crazy people who post something on SCS and sit around pressing F5 on my computer til I get a comment. (okay not to that extreme, but hey I have no life. LOL). But I just sit there and think Wonder if someone doesn't like what I made or on the other hand how many people like what I made. Sometimes I even decide how much I like a card based on how many comments I receive... But then I look back and think about how much I enjoy making them and how much fun I had when I made a card with mom or Sarah or one of my neighbors, and I know this is what I love to do and I need to share it with people.

Crate Paper

I used my favorite brand of paper Crate Paper on this card. I have been hording it to do a scrapbook page with but since I haven't been scrapbooking I thought hey why not!!! I don't have a lot of time today because I have to go into Salt Lake to see my husbands friend who was in a 4 wheeler accident when him and my husband went out yesterday but I hope you like it.

Baby Boy Card

I wanted to use this moon image before my mom took back her stamps... This stamp set is called stardust from SU. When I colored it it turned out a baby blue color and I thought that it would be great for a baby card.

Berry Special

I made this card last night when me and my DH were up until 1:00 coloring. It seems like we do that every Friday and Saturday. I love that we can still spend time together doing things that we both enjoy!!!

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!

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.

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.

Tuesday, November 20, 2007


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....

Monday, November 19, 2007


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.

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

Ahhh up all night, and then up early in the morning, I guess that is the life of a mom... I had to cancel my stampin' day with my friend and violin. I thought I would show you my new monstrosity stamp I got on Saturday though. It makes me happy! I bought it thinking that I would like the other four stamps I bought better, but I have not put this one down. I think he is so cute. Again these are the watercolor crayons from stampin' up.
