This is one of the six sets Sarah left at my house for me to borrow. I think I just love stamps. They make me hapy the other thing that I have been loving is ribbon I want to buy 500 dollars worth of ribbon in one order and get the box open it and just swim in ribbon. Some day maybe!!!

swap card

I think this is the most cards that I have ever done at one time... There are 10... They are all copiced and then I added ribbon. They took forever to color but I think they were well worth it. TFL

I know...

wrong season.... But I love this set and this witch is so fun.. SU Best Fiends!!!


Okay so in life I have decided that things are not always as clear as you would like and in stamping this is also true!!! I guess you have to learn sometimes... did the cracked glass technique and it cracked to much so I took a piece of tissue paper and placed it on top to hold it all together it was too opaque so I wet it down and that made it okay I guess sometimes you get what you get... LOL TFL

Daddy take me to the water

My DD loves to go four wheeling with her dad and always asks him to take her to the reservoir that is close to our house. He loves that she loves it so much and when he hears those words they are gone faster than you can say four wheeler. They are so cute together and Love, you are a great daddy... I love you.


I am loving this ghosting technique. I got this stamp from stampers anonymous and have used it as a background but never a main center but I think this technique works great with it. I added the paper clip thingy to finish it off. TFL

Puking Princess

I finally started scrapbooking again. Man it took forever... These are some pictures that I took of my DD a couple of months ago when she was sick the journaling reads "It was so sad, all you wanted to do was play, but you were swo sick. You carried around that "puke bucket" and clopped around in those high heels all day. Then you crashed. I am so proud of myself maybe I can start this part of my creative juices again. TFL

Sundae Treat

I love this set so much!!!... You can add sparkle and it makes it look good enough to eat!!!
We survived the windstorm of 2008 and our house is still standing although I have had little sleep because my DD thought that the wind was a monster and wanted to stay up and watch simpsons. So I guess you do what you have to do... I am just glad we made it our neighbors siding blew off and we didn't loose any so I was excited about that.

Scrape and emerge

This is a new technique that I made up.... It was so simple but has produced I think great results. This image was colored with copic markers I took the image and heat embossed it until it had a great covering lot like cracked glass. when it was cooled completely I ran it under cold water and then took a toothbrush and brushed most of the paper off the back of the image until it was almost see through but the whole image was still visible... The embossing powder held it all together. When it was still damp I dabbed the image on the back with close to cocoa powder witch allowed the ink to soak up through the image giving it an aged look. It is amazing to look at in real life. TFL

Sweet Treats

I colored this image from SU called sweet treats with my copics. I added spica pen to the glass on the lines to give it a little more shine. the cherry I thought needed a bit more bling so I added crystal effects and glitter on it to give it a little more dimension.
