"M" is for ..........


Hello Readers,

I had a lil time today to sit down and create a Project that was LONG over due. LoL

My BFF Bev picked herself, myself and another friend of ours up these cute lil paper mache letters and wanted us to "do em up"! Needless to say NONE of us had did anything with them yet. Well today I desided to pull out my letter and some Basic Grey "Bittersweet" from BEV aka Precious Scraps and PLAY inbetween tending to the kiddos.

I have to say I am pretty please with THIS out come! I had attempted 2 other times to alter/paper this darn thing and I pulled the paper off BOTH times because I wasnt satisfied with how it was looking.

So w/o any more ramble, here is my lil project to share........

Supplies Used:

Bazzill and Heidi Swapp Blooms, Basic Grey "Bittersweet" pattern paper, Basic Grey "Bittersweet" peeble brad, K I Memories glitter butterfly tattoo, PTI Razz Fizz Ribbon and PTI True Black Ribbon, INked with PTI Razz Fizz Ink. Sentiment is Making Memories Velvet sayings "all girl". And of course the ribbon scraps (various) behind the flower!

I hope you enjoyed my Project as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Thanks for Stoping By,

Cards to Show...

Good Morning!

Last night I was able to play around with some of my stamp/scrapbook supplies. I thought I would share a couple of the quick cards I made!

1st up: Find a Cure...a Breast Cancer Card!

Nothing super fancy but IMO it turned out fairly cute! I got this set recently from CTMH. I had been eyeing it for some time and desided to stop LOOKING and BUY! LoL The Cardstock is all PTI of course!! Then I embellished it a lil with some dew drops and Martha Stewart ribbon.

Next Up: Support Our Troops.....a Military Card!

Again this is the same CTMH set it is just versitile to a few different sayings! I absolutly LOVE it! The Yellow is actually Yo Yo Yellow from SU! And then again I added some dew drops and yellow pink hedgi ribbon. Did you notice the lil ribbon I put to the side?! It fits so perfect to the card!

Well I hope everyone has a Beautiful Saturday! We're heading to the Battlefield/Park today and stopping in to see BEVERLY aka Precious Scraps and do a lil shopping while im there! HeHe

Take Care and Thanks for Stopping By,

Cuddlebug + Valentine's + CUTE CARDS.......

Good Evening Readers,

I have been trying to dedicate a lil more of my Time this year to my Hobby... So far I think I have been doing pretty good!

Since Valentine's is right around the corner I desided to get started on some cards!
These 2 cards I show today are for DD's Kindergarden Teacher and Teacher's Assistant!
I hope they enjoy them as much as I do and did making them!

This 1st card was made for DD's Teacher:

The Base of My Card is PTI White and Layered with a Piece of Pure Poppy Red also from PTI. Then Another Piece of PTI white which I embossed with my Cuddlebug Dies then scored 2 lines on the sides with a Scor-Pal. I used some Red Gems in the center of the Flowers. The stamp is a Teresa Collins Stamp from her Line CRUSH (And OMG do I LOVE her stamps!!!) And I inked it up with Brillance Red. Threw a cpl pop dots in the back and make a cute lil Offray Red Gingam Bow for the top! And Inside says "Happy Valentine's Day Mrs. *****!"

This Next Card is for the T.. Assistant:

Again I used some PTI White for the Base. Some PTI Razzberry Fizz CS for a layer and another PTI white which was embossed with my CB then scored again. I used some matching Pink rinestones for my flower centers and Again used the T.C Stamp which I inked in the PTI Raz. Fizz pallette ink. Then poped it on and tied a PTI Raz Fizz Twill Bow on top! Inside just reads "Happy Valentine's Day! "

Thanks so much for Stopping By!

A Project to Share......

Good Morning Readers!

I hope everyone is staying in Keeping Cozy Warm today! It's absoluty FREEZING here today again!! YUCK!!!
Anyways, I have a special project to share with everyone. I am soo excited about it too!
I am not much of a card maker, I usually wont make a card unless there is some kind of reason for it. (Contest,swap,etc) My Comfort zone is ALTERING. I also Enjoy scrapbooking but have not did any of that in quite some time! LoL

As we all know Valentine's is fastly approching so I desided to get started on DD's Kindy Teacher's Gift and desided to make an extra for my GF Beverly's Scrapbook Store display!

Here is my Project and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them!

I alterted some Target Mailboxes from Last Years Inventory. The pattern Paper is My Mind's Eye Quite Smitten. I comuter generated (my new fav thing for sentiments) the sentiment "Happy Valentine's Day", My Hearts on the front are plain chipboard and I inked them and sharpie pened the white lines. The Blooms are Bazzill bitty blossoms and the ribbon on the flag is just an assortment of grosgrain and sheer. The Back ribbon is Pure Poppy PTI and then American Crafts Valentine ribbon.

Well That is all for now. Thanks for stopping by and Hope you have a Blessed Weekend!

Good Friday Morning Readers!

I really needed to update my blog BUT things have been crazy as usual around here. So while I have a quick moment I have a card and some News to share!

Ok so the "news"is this ....I am not one to apply for many DT's as I am still working on bettering my card making or just being able to make a card peroid. LoL
Well I was checking out a Blog one day and had seen they were looking for DT members! I desided to come out of my lil shell and apply well as many of you know it's a couple weeks before yah usually hear back weather yah make it or not...We a couple weeks passed and I got the e-mail sayin I made the team!! I was excited because this is my 1st spot EVER on any kind of design team. So Here I am a Winter Simon Says Stamp Design Team Member! You get to choose one of their exclusive sets and put it to work. Well this is the set I chose:

It's a clear set which was awsome because I find myself totally addicted to clear stamps lately! So with that here is my 1st submission for the design team:

I broke out some of my new Spellbinder Nesties I recently got my BFF Beverly called Labels 2! I used some S.E.I Patterned Paper from a collection called Dill Blossom and some coordinating Green SU cardstock! I computer generated the sentiment "Owl's it Going" and threw on a piece of Brown offray ribbon from my every growing ribbon collection! My card Base is just from one of the Hero Arts Note Card/Envelope packs.
